We have been Big fans of the island ever since we brought our first baby here 20 years ago (oh my, how time flies!).

We have remodeled and updated everything since purchasing our house is 2007. We enjoy sharing our 'Island Getaway' with our renters and especially enjoy the families that return to make our home their family's vacation spot. We welcome You and Yours to enjoy the best of the Texas Riviera from our Island Getaway!

Ross and Paula Buhrdorf purchased this house in 2007

After spending a span of time in Port Aransas during an internship, we decided that this was the town to begin looking for our 'getaway' place. As luck would have it, the right place and the right timing coincided and we found the ideal spot for a relaxing quick-getaway or a longer stay. Our place was first and foremost built for a family to live in, not just stay for a few days, and you can feel that from the moment you enter the gate (just like we did). This house gives off a warm inviting feel that just seems to melt the cares away. We have definitely found the most relaxing spot in one of the friendliest towns on the Texas Riviera!

One of the best

I have stayed in LOTS of these sort of vacation rentals. This one is one of the best. Tons of room. Really cute. Clean. Cleverly decorated. That outside yard with the trees and plants really makes you feel like you're in your own little hideaway. Every amenity listed is right on target. Really great rental. Great experience. Will visit again.

Adorable house with everything for your trip!

This much-needed trip became everything I hoped for and more, in part because we had such wonderful accomodations! The house is in a very convenient location, has quiet neighbors, is well-kept and provides everything one could want for their trip. It was great being able to make meals instead of eating out all the time, wash clothes as needed, and have a comfortable place to relax. The decor is adorable, the colors are cheerful, and overall the house has a great atmosphere to it. The owners are obviously very hospitable and have gone to great steps to make your stay pleasant and rejuvenating. They were a wealth of informatioin before our trip, including tips on where to see dolphins and how to visit an animal rescue nearby. There were even board games! We played Apples to Apples with the kids every night, which will probably end up being my favortie memories of the trip! I cannot speak too highly of the house and the owners. Our money was definitely well-spent, and I hope to make this house an annual trip for our family.

This cute house is everything promised - lots of room, fun design, clean and full of amenities. There are skylights throughout the house that bring in natural light and a secluded, shaded sitting area in the yard. The owners are awesome and highly responsive. It's just 2 minutes to get to the beach or to the shopping area. We'll definitely be staying here again!

Needed a quiet getaway ...Not a beach person, I usually seek a cabin in hills/mountains far from civilization, but heard Paula's place was available when I needed it. I am a convert! Everything about the house was a delight! I've heard of the gift of hospitality - but this house welcomes a person like the perfect hostess - fresh, colorful, perfect combo of cool and warm, inviting but knows how to disappear into the background. Comfortable. Well supplied.Pretty inside and out. And the beach in April was exactly the right amount of people and space and beauty and space and did I mention the feeling of SPACIOUSNESS! Never realized that sand had as many kinds of textures under bare feet - from smooth to damply cool to warm to crunchy. It was lovely under gray skies or blue, sunshine or cloudy moon. I will be back and bring friends/family. OH yeah, I read other lodgers' recommendations for food and the Station Street Grill exceeded high expectations: my favorite - fried shrimp to DIE for!

perfect- as advertised

1st- the homeowner was easy to contact, helpful and pleasant.
2nd- the setting was beautiful- lush grounds and even though close proximity to town- felt private and secluded- also nice neighborhood.
3rd- accomodations were clean, well laid out, as advertised, plenty cool AC, well stocked kitchen(not always the case at other properties), and user friendly, family friendly... great for couples or families
Cant think of anything we didn't like...
we loved the property, the shopping, Bron's cart rentals was awesome, we always have to eat at Castaways...

Port A is home to many fishing tournaments as well as the Infamous Sandcastle Contest! The University of Texas Marine Research Center is located in town as well. The beaches around Port A are also the nesting grounds of Ridley's sea turtles. Classes are also available year round at the Art Center. Surfing and wind surfing instructors would love to hear from you as well. There is no shortage of fishing charters, and dolphin watch tours are a favorite! So much to do!

Other Activities: No big city light pollution makes star-gazing a treat!
