About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 11-12

Xanadune is a 3 bedroom home with bonus sleeping room. You will love having all the comforts of home at your disposal. We have everything you need to cook a family style meal in our spacious kitchen and enough dining room seating for 12. You can also BBQ in our beach themed fenced in back yard. Our big cozy couches give your friends and family enough room to spread out and play a game or just kick back and watch TV on our big flat screen. Each of our three bedrooms has a big comfy queen sized bed and our bonus room offers additional sleeping with a full/twin bunk bed. When you finally decide to venture for some fun in the sun we are a short drive to the beach, which is just 2 blocks away.

Port Aransas is on the very northern tip of Mustang Island at the intersection of Harbor Island, St. Jo's Island. It is an eco-tourism area, with lots of wildlife including a huge variety of migrating birds. Bay and deep sea fishing is excellent with many charter boats in the marina. 30 minutes away is the USS Lexington and right next door is the Texas State Aquarium. We are located approximately a 2 minute drive to town which is easy to get to while also offering serenity and peace from the hustle and bustle. If you are a golfer, you can grab your clubs and head over to the Palmilla Beach Resort and Golf Club just down the road. This course offers greens on both sides of the highway with a pro shop and The Black Marlin restaurant.

4 and a half star.

  • 4 of 5

The house was perfect for us with plenty of space. The living/dining/kitchen area was very spacious and the table large enough for Thanksgiving dinner and board games. There was also plenty of seating for watching football on tv. The icing on the cake was the fenced in back yard where we could grill burgers and let the dogs play. We had so much fun, dogs included. Thanks.

great vacation house

  • 5 of 5

This was our 4th time to stay in this house. The home is very comfortable with its spacious, open floor plan and roomy kitchen and dining area. The back yard is nicely landscaped and lush and works great for hosing off people feet and dog feet. We love the location; close to beach access and close to restaurants and shops as well. The AC is always cold, and the neighborhood quiet. We arrived to find there was no hot water, but a phone call to the owner remedied that in a flash. The owner was very nice and responsive, and the breakers were replaced quickly, and the hot water flowed. We were also pleased to see new and very comfortable sofas in the living room not to mention the addition of a DVR. We frequently rent vacation homes, and this is the first DVR we've seen; so nice to be able to hit pause and skip the commercials. We have 3 well-behaved dogs, and the owners had no problem with that. We look forward to staying there again!

Great one story ( yay no stairs). Perfect location, close to stores and the beach. Back yard was nice (just get bug spray for mosquiroes!)

Loved the extra area for bunk beds, 3 of our granddaughters slept there! We were a family of 9, so perfect for us! Kitchen roomy! Everything you needed they had!!!

All in all a good place to stay!
