About the Property
Beach House, 3 Br, 2 Ba, Sleeps 10 adults, Pet Friendly! Minutes to beach
Welcome to the Blue Roost!
Our beach house has everything you would need for a vacation here - comfortable beds with cool and crisp linens, fluffy bathroom towels, open shelves in the kitchen stocked to feed friends and family, beach toys and chairs for days in the sun. Bring your food and you are good to go. As our guests say in our reviews, the "house is very comfortable and plenty of room for us and guests aged 5 months to grandparents. Gated porch is wonderful for kids, dogs and early morning coffee. Love the walk to the beach on the boardwalk."
Year round Port Aransas has something for everyone! There is abundant sun, surf and sand if you just want to "get away from it all." If you are lucky, watch a turtle hatchling release at the Padre Island National Seashore during the summer. Port A is THE place for fishing - in the bay, offshore or from the jetties - you are sure to go home with some fish tales! For the nature lover, the birds here are incredible - seeing a squadron of Pelicans dive for their meals, or the pink of Roseate Spoonbills never gets old for us! If you want to go shelling on a secluded island, check out San Jose Island - accessible by ferry from Port A For the art lover - the Port Aransas Art Center holds classes and has gorgeous local art available for purchase. Relaxing on the beach or adventuring in town, you won't be board in Port Aransas!
This charming beach house gives you the best of both worlds - close to the beach and to town. The sand is less than 5 minutes away via the private La Playa neighborhood boardwalk and our place is your best location for the yearly SandFest event located right across the boardwalk on the beach.
The Blue Roost is a three bedroom, two bathroom beach house that sleeps up to 10 adults and up to 12 total if you have kids. It is comfortable enough for a quiet stay for two and large enough for a vacation with the extended family. Great for girls getaways, fishing excursions and family trips. As our guest at the Blue Roost (an owner managed property) you will have easy access to the house via your personal lock code - which means no coordinating schedules to pick up/drop off keys and no danger of losing keys at the beach!
This beach house has a large, fully equipped kitchen that holds everything you need to feed friends and family. The beautiful blue tile island in the kitchen is the heart of the house. The two dining room tables seat 10 with an additional three seats at the kitchen island. For morning coffee or al fresco dining, just outside the kitchen the covered sitting area is perfect for 5 with adirondack chairs around the side deck for 4 more.
The cozy living room has two full sized slip covered Pottery Barn sofas. Slip covers are new! If you need to stay in touch with the outside world, access the wifi throughout the house and on the deck. Use the new flat screen TV to see DVDs, Directv (HD) and Netflix when you want to take a break from the sun.
The large master bedroom downstairs has a king bed and the equally large guest room across the hall has two queen beds. The downstairs bedrooms share a bathroom. The upstairs, called the Seven Dwarfs room by my kids, is a fabulous 37-foot-long bedroom with one queen bed, 4 twin beds and a bathroom. All bedrooms are equipped with an HD DirecTV. Sleeps 10 adults, beds for 12 if you have kids. All bedding and bath towels are provided. No wimpy towels here!
Two Levels of Decks
The upper deck is a great area to work on a tan while enjoying a lovely birds eye and partial view of the Gulf. When you've had enough sun, lounge on the covered lower deck and enjoy the balmy breezes and sounds of the sea. Both decks have gates at the steps, providing a secure area for small children or pets.
Other amenities include:
* Plenty of covered parking
* Outdoor shower and hose to rinse off the sand
* Playhouse and sand toys for the kids
* Basketball hoop - bring a basketball!
The Blue Roost is dog friendly. Well behaved dogs are allowed but must be crated inside when unattended.

Year Purchased: 2010
About the owner: Our Story: A few years ago, we filled my uncle's beach house in Scituate, MA with cousins from across the globe to celebrate my grandmother's 100th birthday. It was a fantastic time to reconnect and that time at the beach with family changed our lives. We knew we wanted to create that kind of place and experience for our girls to connect with friends and family more frequently and closer to home. As I searched the web for property on the Texas Coast, I found the Blue Roost. I fell in love with the blue tile in the kitchen and knew the kids and their friends would love the Seven Dwarfs room upstairs. We drove down to Port A mid week in the Spring of 2010 and put in an offer. And the rest, as they say, is history! We love staying at the Blue Roost and we know you will, too. It has become that place we dreamed it would be for our family and our guests. We love traveling and enjoy the beach, going as often as time permits. We have two teenage girls and a golden retriever and usually bring a pack of friends to the beach with us. We currently live in Austin, TX. Check out our other beach house in Galveston: vrbo 372154
Why the Owner Chose Port Aransas, TX, USA:
Our house is close to the beach and to town. The kids like to have the option of beach time or shopping and it's all walking distance. The house is on a cozy little street in a sweet neighborhood. We chose the Blue Roost because I fell in love with the blue tile in the kitchen.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
We enjoy beach time, searching for shells, watching birds (and people!) Our favorite coffee and gelato place, Coffee Waves, is a mile a way and we like to walk there to get an afternoon treat. We have coffee and breakfast every morning on the lower deck. The upper deck is great for sitting in the sun. We love the layout of the house - the big open kitchen is a gathering place for everyone. The upstairs bedroom is terrific for the kids and their friends.
