About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 8

Our 100% green energy efficient 3BR/2BA rental is conveniently located in beautiful Port Aransas, off Island Retreat Rd, just a short drive to the beach, town, and some of the best island restaurants. This beautiful house was newly constructed in 2014 with high-end fixtures and new furniture.


Enter the house into the open floor plan living, dining, and kitchen space. The living room has two comfortable couches, flat screen cable TV, and children’s amenities. The fully equipped kitchen has beautiful granite counter tops, stainless steel appliances, and high-end cookware. The dining room seats eight comfortably around the table and three at the bar top.

The bedrooms are located down the hallway from the living space. The master bedroom has a deluxe king bed, flat screen cable TV, and en-suite bathroom with shower/tub combo.

The first guest bedroom has a comfortable queen bed and flat screen cable TV. The second guest bedroom comes with a full/twin bunk bed with a hidden twin trundle bed underneath, perfect for kids. Off the hallway there is a full bath with shower/tub combo.

Our house is situated up on stilts for some of the best sunset views. Underneath the house we have plenty of parking, a picnic table, and a gas grill.


Our house is located in Island Retreat, just a short drive from beautiful beaches, delightful restaurants, shopping and many other opportunities for adventure!

Port Aransas is on the very northern tip of Mustang Island at the intersection of Harbor Island and St. Jo's Island. It is an eco-tourism area, with lots of wildlife, including a huge variety of migratory birds. Bay and deep sea fishing is a local favorite with many charter boats available in the marina.

30 minutes away is the USS Lexington and right next door is the Texas State Aquarium. We are located approximately a three-minute drive from town, so you’ll have easy access while enjoying serenity and peace from the hustle and bustle.

If you’re a golfer, you can grab your clubs and head over to the New Port Dunes Arnold Palmer Signature Course just down the road. This course offers greens on both sides of the highway with a cart bridge connecting the two. The club has a pro shop and snack bar available.

Schlitterbahn Waterpark is only a 20-minute drive down the island for wet and wild fun in the sun.

The short term permit number is 523937

Great Location and Very Nice House, but...

  • 3 of 5

The location of the house is awesome. While you cannot see the beach, you can get there quickly. They are in process of putting an in ground pool that will be ready for the summer (of course prices will go up). The house is pretty new with everything you need including xbox 360 and board games for the kids. Place feels big with plenty of room to play for the kids. Master has a king, guest has a queen and other guest has a bunk bed with full on bottom and twin on top. Plenty of parking and great outdoor space. Easy to check-in and check out. The washer and dryer was a welcomed sight as well as the outdoor shower. The house came with a Samsung tablet and speaker for music as well. the tablet would be beneficial for someone new to Port A and need recommendations.

That was the good. Now to the bad. The mater bed is EXTREMELY soft and very uncomfortable, if you like soft, that bed is for you. The house had a very unpleasant smell. At first we thought it was just stale from not much use in the winter; however, I am convinced it is smoke. We washed our cloths before we left this house to come home, but when we got home to unpack we had to rewash everything and leave our suitcases outside to air out. It seems management is aware of it, as they had air freshener everywhere. Also, all the windows in the house were unlocked when we got there, which tells me, the cleaning crew probably had them open to air out the place. Maybe, we just got unlucky and rented it after someone partied there (there were numerous scuffs on the wall and pantry door) but the smell was not good. We weren't around in the house much, but for the smell alone, i would probably not rent again. We have two asthmatic children, so smoking and smoke smell is not good for them.

The price was right, the location was right and the house was well appointed. I would have continued to rent it going forward if it wasn't for the smell.

Stilt home in Port A.

  • 5 of 5

The house had everything we needed, was well appointed and comfortable. Everything felt new. I would definitely recommend this house. We got helpful emails to let us know if we could check in early or late. Our group caught a lot of great fish on the North Jetty and had Island Cafe cook it up for us. Fun trip.

Weekend getaway

  • 2 of 5

The house had a musty smell. The house was ok. In comparison to other properties I would not stay here again. I use vrbo and have stayed at the coast multiple times but I would have to say this was my worse. We then forgot my husbands razor and went back and we were locked out. No one answer when we called for assistance through turnkey. Won't use them again. The smell of the house was like the house had been closed for awhile or not cleaned.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to leave this feedback. We are so sorry if you encountered problems getting back into the home to retrieve your husbands razor and for not being able to reach us quickly for assistance. Unfortunately, we did encounter an unexpected spike in call volume on our support line when you were trying to call; however, we absolutely understand your frustration and agree that it is unacceptable if you were not able to speak with one of our staff right away. Here at TurnKey, it truly is our highest priority to offer the most helpful and convenient guest experience possible, and it sounds like we fell short of that with you. Please be assured that since your stay, we have added several new team members who are all waiting to answer guests' calls 24 hours-a-day and make sure their concerns are addressed promptly and handled professionally.We have also reached out to our team to have investigate the smells you were encountering during your stay. If there is anything else we can still do for you, please reach out anytime and let us know. -The TurnKey VR Team

A great place to stay that feels like home.

  • 5 of 5

Our family of seven was looking for a nice place to stay on our journey to the Island and we found it. The house was clean and only minutes away from the beach. The beds were comfortable and the house had everything we needed.
