About the property

Walk to the beach 2 pools tennis court minutes to town

Welcome to the Dolphin Town condo! Enjoy all that Port Aransas has to offer from this beautiful EFFICIENCY condo conveniently located with direct beach access over one of 2 private boardwalks, 2 pools, tennis court, gazebos with grills, playground and more! This condo has been completely remodeled including raising the ceilings and a very cool custom island with sea-shell counter top. It turned out really cute and beachy!

The condo is an efficiency with 2 full beds. Full bath has nice tile and separate dressing area. Kitchen has all you need to cook if you are so inclined, stove/oven, microwave, full size refrigerator, dishes and cookware.

Located right off 11th Street on the beach side, you can drive street-legal beach carts from here right into town where you can visit all the cute beach shops and restaurants, or take off from the wharf on a fishing tour. With a grocery store and CVS minutes away, you have everything you need for a great time! ENJOY!

Very clean and a quick walk to the beach.

  • 5 of 5

Much nicer than staying in a hotel, as you have a stove. Also a pool, basketball and volleyball court.

Good location for beach and restaurant access

  • 3 of 5

The efficiency had all of the necessities and was large enough for us and our granddaughter. No view from the room but right across from the pool that was large and clean. The boardwalk to the beach is nice - it is a hike so we moved our car to the back when going to the beach to cut the walk with our gear. Saw others with all terrain wagons and wished we had brought ours. It's not a far drive to restaurants and shops so we could go to town for lunch and dinner. Would stay here again when there is just the 3 of us.

Very Nice

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Island Retreat. Before arriving we had everything we needed (directions and door code). There were even suggestions of things you might want to bring in order to experience the area better. Once we got there the condo was exactly what they said it was. The room was smaller, cozy, but not cramped (perfect for 2, good for 4) It was clean, great access to the beach, nice pool and very friendly and helpful staff. We will definitely be visiting again. Thank you for a wonderful first Port A experience.

Just as described - Great location/ price!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was exactly as described and even cuter in person. It was very clean, had great lighting and a/c, and honestly was a little roomier than I expected. Linda is is clear in her description that it is an efficiency unit (and that it does not face the beach). Our family of four did not feel cramped at all. The kitchen was well stocked with everything you might need (granted it is a small kitchen with a small oven). We were able to cook breakfast each day which was perfect. It does not have a dishwasher so we opted to use paper plates/ cups during our visit. It also has WiFi and cable. The beach is a short walk away which was perfect for morning walks. We did buy a beach pass to drive on the beach for extended visits so we didn't have to carry our stuff. The grounds at the condo are well kept and very clean, and every employee we encountered was friendly. We did not have any issues with noise despite being right next to the office. The pools were a little crowded during the evening and a little rowdy, but nothing wild or excessively loud, no drunken craziness, etc. We would definitely stay again and highly recommend it. Linda was very responsive to any communications we sent prior to check-in (we didn't require anything during our visit). Great experience.
