About the Property

Close to beach, Freshly remodeled, Private pool, Well-maintained

This is the best house in town in Port Aransas!

Private Pool that can be heated for additional charge! If you are looking for a one-of-a-kind Port Aransas vacation, look no further than Good Day Sunshine. This is our personal home and we want to share it with other guests/visitors when it is not being used. The home was fully remodeled in 2014/2015 to include roof, windows, doors, flooring, kitchen, baths, furnishings and we also added a private swimming POOL! The home has a very open layout with living, dining and kitchen all as one. Everything in the house was purchased for the property so no hand-me-downs here. Different than most rentals this property is NOT built on stilts so you walk right into the home from the ground level. It is also built across two lots offering plenty of parking and space to spread out for the whole family. We also have a great off-street boat parking space. The pool is built on the front side of the house and because it faces East we get afternoon shade in the pool area, offering a cool and relaxing escape. There are four separate covered porches on this home, complete with outdoor furnishings which is great when the whole family is under one roof. If you are looking for a high-end rental in Port Aransas, Good Day Sunshine is your spot! Ping pong table and dart board!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: I am a real estate Broker in central Texas. I am originally from Galveston, but spent most of my childhood in San Antonio. At the age of 18 I moved to Austin to attend the University of Texas at Austin where I began my real estate career. I currently split time between Austin, San Antonio, Lake LBJ and Port Aransas. I love remodeling homes and watching the transformations happen. This is one of my all-time favorite projects and a real blessing; I hope to share it with you. I have set this house up as a place that I would personally enjoy, with the amenities I expect in a luxury rental and I am confident that your expectations will be exceeded

Why the Owner Chose Port Aransas, TX, USA:
Port Aransas is a place I fondly remember from my childhood and owning a home here was always a dream. Two years ago I began our search for the perfect home in an effort to make that dream a reality. When I set my eyes on 616 N Palimino I knew it was the perfect spot! After a 6 month, complete renovation, Good Day Sunshine was born and is now ready for your enjoyment!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Good Day Sunshine is a 3 bedroom 2 bath house and has two large living rooms one upstairs and the other down, plus 4 outdoor covered porches offering plenty of room for the entire family. Different than most homes in the area the house sits high atop a hill and because of this, the house is not built on stilts but rather you enter the house on the first floor which has a large living room, bedroom and full bath. From there you can go up to the second story which has high, vaulted ceilings, living, dining and two additional bedrooms. The house is also built across two lots offering plenty of space to spread out and an abundance of parking. Good Day Sunshine also has a off-street, boat parking space as an added bonus. The home has a brand new private pool which was built out the front of the house to take advantage of the eastern exposure which creates a cool and shady environment even on the hottest of days. I believe this is the best house in Port Aransas and know it will not disappoint. Walk to the beach. Some ocean views off the back deck for an added bonus.
