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.

Nice Vacation

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay and would definitely would be back. Having said that, there are some things that would have made it more enjoyable. We searched for a house with no stairs because of a recent surgery that prohibits climbing. Directly inside the front door, there is a two stair drop down to climb to get into the living area. Normally, this would be no big deal; but with a large leg brace, it was difficult for my mother to maneuver. The coffee maker was in bad shape. It makes coffee, but the unit is old and the heavy crust on the burner can't be cleaned. The oven door handle needs repair. It has been rigged to open. We cooked most of our meals on the stove. The burners were really filthy underneath. Upgrading these two things would be a plus. At a minimum give them a good scrubbing. The living room is spacious and perfect for hanging with the family. The backyard is nice and private. The neighborhood was quiet and close to activities. It's close to the beach, but it's a car ride away. There is no short cut straight to it, as most short cuts are blocked off. Again, not a big deal, just good to know. The air conditioner was ice cold and perfect for the Texas heat. I called the owner with a couple of questions and he was readily available and helpful. With a few minor upgrades this would be our "go to" home in Port A.

Great place to stay in Port A!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed spending the winter at the Xanadune house. The house had everything we needed and plenty of room for occasional guests. The fenced backyard is nice and private with a wonderful covered patio, a gas grill and lots of seating. Marty was always very helpful and prompt with anything we needed. It's just a short drive down the road to the endless beach and a short drive the other direction to the town and the shipping channel. It was so fun to sit in the park by the channel and watch people fishing for huge black drum, see the ferries crossing 24/7 and be amazed at the size of the ships passing through to Corpus Christi. We would highly recommend Xanadune!

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 location. Fun times in Port Aransas!

  • 5 of 5

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!
