Overview

About the property

4 bedroom 2 full bath, super close the beach fully updated and all new linens

Bring your flip flops, beach toys and swimsuits and relax at Steps to the Sand. This fully furnished 4 bedroom 2 full bath updated home recently featured on a popular HGTV show has two master bedrooms one with a king bed and pull out sofa and the other with a queen. Two bunk rooms for the kids one with a double twin bunk bed plus trundle and the other with a twin bed plus trundle. New stainless steel appliances, updated cabinetry and solid surface counter tops appoint the kitchen located off the dining area. Unlike some of the houses we provide the normal items like a full set of real pots and pans, Ninja blender for smoothes, full set of stoneware plates and cups, plastic beach glasses, spices and condiments, coffee maker and coffee, bbq/smoker and you wont be short on the little things like bath towels, paper towels, toilet paper or garbage bags. If you want to prepare a full dinner, bbq your fresh catch or just wake up to a full size pot of coffee we have you covered. We also provide beach chairs and a few sand toys for the kids that you are welcome to use while your stay. We will consider 2 or 3 night stays on Sunday thru Wednesday night or if only 2-3 night stays are left available because of previously booked reservations.The system will not allow you to book online for stays shorter than what is stated on the website so give us a call if you are interested and we will let you know if we can accommodate your stay. We include the use of our 2014 6 seat gas golf cart with owner approval and proper insurance for guests with a drivers license and over 21. For reference on the value the golf cart adds to your stay, local golf cart rentals are $175-$200 per day for a six seat cart that will be a few years older and you have to wait in line to get it all set up. The quickest way to the beach on those busy weekends and events is to walk down the private boardwalk and in less than 5 minutes you can park yourself on the beach and start to unwind. After you get done at the beach or for the sports fans that can't miss a game we have a 50" flat-screen in the main living area with surround sound plus flat screens in all the bedrooms. We have full cable, dvd player, HBO and Netflix plus "real" high speed internet for catching up on work items and streaming your favorite music. We have an fully enclosed outdoor shower located behind the front steps to wash off the beach you brought back. The back patio area with a table, umbrella and 8 chairs that is lushly landscaped with hibiscus and gardenia. Our rule on the back patio is the first one in the hammock wins and although we don't count that as a bed it is perfect for reading a book or taking a quick cat nap. Bring a brisket, ribs and your favorite wood chips and you can smoke till your hearts desire on our full size pit.

Our calendar is always up to date so if you are looking for a last minute trip or looking at 6 months from now you can book it now with confidence. If you need to ask about golf cart usage policy or are looking for a last minute booking feel free to contact us by phone or email, if we don't answer on the first call we will return calls and emails in an hour. We do ask that someone over 25 book and stay at this property for the duration of the rental and are interested in renting to responsible families. Our home is well maintained, handy to the beach, close to down town and perfectly suited for two families with children.

We do allow some pets but please shoot us an email, text or give us a call. There is room for a dog but if you have more than that it's best to send them on their own vacation ;)

We loved our long weekend in Port A with family

  • 5 of 5

Weather for April 6-10, 2017, was delightful, mid-60's to mid-70's, no rain. It was too cool for us for swimming, but we were busy every minute. We took a dolphin, shelling, picnic tour with Tiki, we took another dolphin tour from Woody's. Avery's, Shells provided some terrific meals. The house, host, provided for many needs and was helpful in selecting those places to eat. The house was immaculate, beds comfortable, ample towels, toilet paper, paper towels, etc. So many features to the house that made us feel right at home. I loved the beachy decor and beautful bathrooms.

We'll be back! - Great House!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a fabulous stay. I am easily technology challenged and the keyless entry stumped me at first, but Brian answered the phone immediately and talked me right through it. Never had another problem and because of the owner's quick response - it was not a problem. The house is very cute, clean, and comfortable. Everything is there - just bring yourself. The kitchen was very well stocked with great utensils, cookware, and serving pieces, but also there was coffee and spices. The bathrooms were roomy with plenty of towels and toilet paper. I have nothing, but praise for this rental. The house is about 50' from the boardwalk that leads through the dunes to the beach - it is a great location. The deck surrounding the house and patio below are great for outside parties and there is even an outdoor grill. And then there is the gas powered golf cart, this pays for the whole house. We had a blast driving around in the golf cart. Thank you Brian for all your help. I can't wait to book another vacation.

Stain Family Winter Break 2016 - Getting away from the norm!

  • 5 of 5

Prior to arriving to the property, I spoke with the owner about all the details and he was very helpful with getting me acclimated to where we were staying and some of the areas we should visit. Brian provided great customer service. The property was in good order. Clean, comfortable and you immediately felt like you were right at home. Hard to believe it was 80 degrees in December, but thank goodness the A/C worked great to cool it down. It was great to have the golf cart included with the property so we could immediately get to enjoying our surroundings. To rent one would be costly, so this is a great value. There was only 4 of us staying, but there was room for 4 more comfortably. I am definitely looking forward to the next time we head to Port A and have already told friends and family about our visit. The only draw back to our visit to Port A was that it seem as though all the restaurants were operating at minimum staff and supplies due to the time of year. Also, many businesses were closed. Overall, it was a great getaway from Dallas-Fort Worth for 5 days!

The only negative was that the resort next door was getting a new roof, so the construction was a little noisy. Luckily, one of our days it was too windy for them to work on the roof. It would have been nice to know that there was construction going on prior to booking.

Thank you Brian!

Bill Stain and family.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed at this property at the end of September and had a great time. It is close to the beach and the golf cart was a bonus for sure. There was plenty of room for everyone and we had everything we needed. Brian was very helpful about advising us on places to eat and other things to do besides the beach. Of course we went for the beach, but had a back-up plan in case it rained. My two daughters saw dolphins swimming right in front of them. Pretty amazing! Thank you Brian for everything!
