Overview

Port Aransas House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 8

This remarkable 3BR/2BA family beach house is just two blocks from the epicenter of Port Aransas and minutes to a beautiful sunny beach. Our spacious living room features a large wrap-around comfy couch and a loveseat that face the large, mounted 40” HDTV. The living area flows into the kitchen and dining room --you’ll love the unique floor. Prepare a lovely meal in our updated, gourmet kitchen and gather around our dining table that can easily accommodate six people to enjoy it. Just down the hallway you will find our three bedrooms and two full bathrooms each with shower/tub and toilet. The master bedroom has a queen bed, his and hers closets, and a 20” TV. The second bedroom has a luxurious queen bed, his and hers closets, ceiling fan and a CD player. Our third bedroom has two sets of twin bunks, a drawing table, and a large closet with an area full of games and crafts supplies. The private outdoor space makes this house a dream and ideal for stargazing at night. We have two brick patios, one is a screened-in porch, or you can relax in our hammock and enjoy the lush tropical plants in our well-manicured, fully fenced yard. Only minutes from the beach, the pier, and the finest dining and shopping in Port Aransas, this is the perfect place to stay if you want to be close to all the action.

We are located approximately a five minute walk the beach and five minute drive to town which is easy to get to and offers great shopping and restaurants. Port Aransas is on the very northern tip of Mustang Island at the intersection of Harbor Island and St. Jo's Island. It is an eco-tourism area, with lots of wildlife including a huge variety of migratory birds. Bay and deep sea fishing is excellent with many charter boats available in the marina. Half an hour away is the USS Lexington and right next door is the Texas State Aquarium. If you are a golfer, you can grab your clubs and head over to the Palmilla, an Arnold Palmer Signature Course, just down the road. This course offers greens on both sides of the highway with a cart-bridge that connects them. The club offers a Pro shop and snack bar. Schlitterbahn Waterpark is scheduled to open a new park at the south end of the island this spring (2015). It is only a 20 minute drive down the island and offers entertainment for the entire family.

Our property is TurnKey Rental Certified. All photos and amenities have been verified by TurnKey staff. Our calendar and rates are 100% accurate. We strive to make it as easy as possible to stay at our property - you just drive right up and enter via our secure electronic lock.

About TurnKey Vacation Rentals

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!

Why TurnKey Vacation Rentals chose Port Aransas

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!

Guestbook comments from the manager

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.

Great House, Very Responsive Owner

  • of 5
This house was exactly as described. Very clean, a well equipped kitchen and lots of things to take to the beach. And the yard? The picture doesn't do it justice. HUGE, and mostly in shade and breeze. . And the real test of a vacation home? The beds are VERY comfortable.

A note about the owner. Paula takes incredible pride in her property, and goes over and above to guarantee smooth sailing. I caused a bit of technological "confusion" due to a mistake on my original booking request. Paula was there every step of the "correction". Reassuring, since this was a relatively last minute booking.

Also, we had a small toilet issue when we got to the house. Things happen (especially to low flow toilets :) ) and again Paula was immediately available and responsive-even though she, herself, was on a weekend get-a-way. A local pro came by right away, resolved the issue quickly and without impacting us at all.

A great house and a wonderful owner/manager with an old-school focus on great service. Highly recommended.

Comfy and Cozy in the middle of Port A.

  • 5 of 5
Well organized, stocked, and kept. Convenient location to the most things to do in Port A, but you're really there for the sun, sand and ocean, right? Luckily, that's right down the beach. If you really want to get into the swing of things, rent a Golf Cart to travel to and fro, and keep your car sand free.

The furnishings are comfy and makes you feel right at home.

Highly recommend!

Adorable house with everything for your trip!

  • 5 of 5
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.

Spacious, clean and fun - close to everything!

  • 5 of 5
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!

It's the BEST!

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!

Map

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!
