EXCELLENT CHOICE

  • 5 of 5
This is my second time to stay at this nice little studio. My daughter and I go every year and plan on staying here every time. Perfectly situated, close to the beach with a pool. The studio itself is just right and very competitively priced. Moreover, Kate is extremely prompt with responses, refunding deposit, etc.

GREAT STAY

  • 4 of 5
We had a great first visit to Port Aransas with our two kids this past week (2 adults, and a 2 and 5 year old). The condo was absolutely the best priced for all the amenities. I researched extensively before our trip, and this condo had more "bang for your buck" than any other rental I came across.
It was walking distance to the beautiful beach, a community pool, BBQ areas, and a playground.
It accommodated our family perfectly in terms of space, and location (close to the local shops, restaurants, and Fishermans Warf). I highly recommend staying here if you are on a family budget and want to experience everything Port Aransas has to offer.
That being said, we didn't plan on staying in the condo for large amounts if time - just a "stopping point" between our adventures. It was a great vacation and can't wait to come back!
Pros: perfect location, private beach access, community pool, BBQ areas, playground, safe property, friendly people
Cons: Kitchen is not big enough to "cook" for a family of four (recommend sandwhiches and small snacks). I'm sure it would work out for 2 people, but not 4. The mattresses on the bed and pullout need updating. And nothing the owner can do but it's worth mentioning: no ventilation in the bathroom.
Overall - Would definitely come back!
Thank you, Kate

WHAT A NICE PLACE

  • 5 of 5
The condo is great for couple or small family. The room is clean and the kitchen has almost everything you need if you cook. The whole complex is very quiet and neighbors are very friendly. Thank you, Kate! We'll go back soon.

GREAT PLACE TO STAY IN PORT ARANSAS

  • 4 of 5
We stayed here for two nights & we really enjoyed it. It was a nice walk from the beach and a short car ride into town (a walkable distance!). We checked in & out with ease & zero complications. The place was very clean & felt like home. There were four of us staying here (3 adults, 1 baby) and so one of us slept on the sleeper couch, but we actually didn't even need to unfold it. It was comfortable as is (to me, at least!) :) Having the furnished kitchen was a nice convenience that we didn't get to take advantage of, but plan on it next time! (Food gets expensive in Port A!)

The only thing I'd complain about (& it wasn't really a big deal) is the softness of the towels. They aren't that great, but that's seriously the only thing I could think of that I would change! & it's only a minor detail.

Overall, the place was great to stay at & we hope to return in the future!

WONDERFUL STAY!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here for three nights, loved the beach access and pool. We went mid-week so not busy at all, often had the pool all to ourselves and no one staying next to us until the last night. We brought our bikes and got around the island easily, quick ride to bars and restaurants. Port aransas in general was not as bike friendly as I would have expected but it's easy to take the smaller streets to get around, finding a place to lock them was more of an issue but still not too bad. The condo was great, perfect for the two of us and a great price, would definitely stay here again. The owner made everything very easy and the location was fantastic!
