About Marina & Ernest Miller

We are a family of 4, that lives near San Antonio. We love the beach and Port Aransas and welcome you to our vacation home and hope you have the same enjoyment that we do.

Marina & Ernest Miller purchased this condo in 2014

Why Marina & Ernest Miller chose Gulf Coast

We came here to visit and were taken away with the charm of Port Aransas and the beauty of the gulf. When we stayed at "El Cortez" it was so quiet and relaxing that we had to have our own unit. And now we own 2 units there, so if you are traveling with friends or 2 bedrooms are not enough for your big family welcome to our upstairs 1 bedroom unit VRBO Listing #502537.

What makes this condo unique

We fell in Love with the Boardwalk to the beach and the quiet and cleanliness of the complex with manicured lawn and beautiful tropical landscape.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed Friday and Saturday nights. We came in very late, so the keyless entry was fabulous. The condo was a dream. Very well equipped and so clean. The kitchen had everything we needed and more. Pool is right outside the front door. Able to park right outside the backdoor which makes loading and unloading very easy. Highly recommend unit 123. We could definitely tell these owners care about their property and want renters to have a great time.

Highly Recomemnded

  • 5 of 5

Very clean , cute , and spacious ! Perfect for our family ! Boardwalk to the beach was a super convenient 5 minute walk . Only downside was that we couldn't rent a golf cart because it's located off the main highway and not directly in town , and the boardwalk doesn't allow for golf carts . Kids enjoyed the beach toys that were provided . The kitchen came stocked with all the tools and essentials !! Beds were very comfy and so were the brand new couches ! Really enjoyed having the pool steps away from the door . Definitely looking forward to our next stay !!

Quiet, relaxing condo close to the pool and beach

  • 5 of 5

The condo is a little older, but nicely maintained and very comfortable. It's about 30ft from the pool and has a nice patio out front to have coffee and wake up with breakfast. The beach is about a 5 minute walk and is very nice. The best thing is it's very quiet. We slept very well and were very relaxed, which is one of the main goals of a vacation, right? We enjoyed our stay and would recommend it.

We loved our stay at El Cortez. Everything was very nice and everyone was very helpful. Comfortable beds and cozzy couch to relax on. The only draw back it was quite a hike to our condo unloading all of our stuff and then again loading our belongings to go home. The room was decorated very cute and it was very clean. The pool was nice and we loved it being only steps away. Overall we had a great time and will be back soon!

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying with us. Thank you for the nice review of our condo. We are sorry to hear you didn't park your vehicle by the back patio. It would be much easier to load and unload your baggage. We hope you visit us again!

comfortable & quaint

  • 5 of 5

The condo was well decorated, clean, and comfortably stocked. The beach was a little further and more difficult walk than expected. My parents are older with bad knees/ankles, so they couldn't make it down there. It worked out though, because we ended up spending more time by the boats in town and in the property pool. All in all, a wonderful experience and would recommend it to others!

Owner's Response: Thank you for sharing your experience. We are sorry your family could not enjoy the beach. For all our future guests: the access road is less than 2 miles from the condo. The beach is really nice in this area.

Port A Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had an awesome time staying at the El Cortez condos. The condo was very nice and had all the amenities we needed. The only draw back is that it was a little bit of a hike to the beach and we weren't expecting that but it was still a great place to stay and convenient to everything we wanted to do. I would definitely recommend staying there.
