About the property

***My dear guests, unit #123 of "El Cortez Villas" will not be available until mid summer, due to hurricane damage to the complex.

Thank you all for your support.***

Recently remodeled our 2 bedroom 2 bath ground floor unit is located at the courtyard of "El Cortez Villas" near the pool and just a couple of steps away from the grill. The condo is just minutes drive from Port Aransas (2,5 miles). It is a 6 minute walk down the boardwalk to the beach and the beautiful Gulf, you don't have to cross the street! The complex has brand new golf cart accessible boardwalk, so rent one in multiple places in town or bring your own and enjoy your ride along the beach. Or you can drive your car to the beach - access road is about 1 mile away from the complex. The "El Cortez's" beach mark is #42, the beach there is clean and not crowded. The "El Cortez Villas" complex is very quiet and relaxing, making it a perfect family vacation spot. There are 2 swimming-pools, grills, tennis and volleyball courts, a fish house to clean your catch of the day and a boat parking area.

Our condo has 2 patios with outside furniture for your relaxing morning coffee or family dinner. Inside the unit: 3 TVs, washer and dryer, kitchen loaded with dishes, pots and pans, coffee maker, blender, crock-pot, kettle, toaster, microwave, dishwasher. The master bedroom has a king-size bed. Second bedroom has a queen-size bed. There is a brand new comfy queen size sleeping sofa (2016) with memory foam mattress in the living room. Keyless locks on the front and back yard patio doors will make your stay easier and less stressful. Renting this condo you will gain the luxury of loading and unloading your vehicle right outside of the back door, yes, park your vehicle just 15 feet away from the door.

Enjoy your vacation in our pool-front condo. Welcome to the Texas Gulf Coast! Welcome to Port Aransas!

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 Port Aransas

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.

Great place to stay while having fun at the beach with family.

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved our trip. The property is well maintained with two nice pools. The unit was very clean and well cared for with everything you need to feel like home. Looks just like the pictures! The only downside is it's a bit of a walk to the beach but it's a nice paved path to the boardwalk which is wide enough for golf carts. We'll stay here again in the future but we'll rent a golf cart.

Great location for families

  • 5 of 5

The property is clean and quiet, a short drive to the beach, and has a great pool! The condo is spacious and had everything my family of five needed for a week of relaxing and play, including beach toys! The owner was so helpful before and during my stay, and quick to answer all my questions. I would definitely stay here again (my kids have already begged me to make plans for next summer!)

Perfect Beach Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The condo is very well kept, large enough for our family, and a boardwalk or short drive to the beach. The condo's front door faces the pool. The condo is a first-class resort type environment that is very relaxing. The only thing is that the complex is missing a hot tub. My family and I intend to return again.
