BEACH-TASTIC, KID FRIENDLY BEACH CONDO

Port Aransas Condo Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6

The Sandy Turtle is easy access to the best of Port A. Private walkway (about 300 yds) to the beach: it's a very wide section and the recreation area is separated from the car lanes by pylons - no worries about cars running over your beach blanket or sand castles. We are also very close to the life guard stand. When you're ready to enjoy dinner out, the Port A's finest restaurants and activities are only a 2 to 5 minute drive. Shell's Pasta & Seafood is less than 3 blocks away. When you're not out and about, the Sandy Turtle is the place to relax and have fun. The unit is casual and family friendly with activities to entertain everyone, including an assortment of videos, children's toys, board games, cable TV, NETFLIX, and wireless Internet access. Kids love the on site play ground. The second bedroom has been decorated especially for kids with an ocean theme with colorful fish, and there is a second TV and VCR perfect for early morning or bed time videos. ~~

The full kitchen is stocked with appliances and utensils to keep everyone fed after a full day at the beach or just to save a few dollars.

The Sandy Turtle is a ground floor unit so no hassles with carrying luggage or kids up flights of slippery stairs.

We liked being near the 'fenced' section of the beach as well as so close to everything in town. Also, the complex grounds have a very open feel, with the large courtyard.

We set up our condo for families with younger children. There are lots of on site toys and games and a large selection of favorite family videos. We also include a high chair and pack-n-play to help save room in your vehicle. Many of our guests say their children feel like the kid's room is their second home.

Perfect family friendly condo

We had a wonderful stay at the sandy turtle. Upon arrival we didn't have to worry about entertaining our kids at all while we were unpacking, because there is a closet full of toys (and games) to entertain the kids. My kids (2 and 1 years old) thought it was better then Christmas because they didn't even have to unwrap the toys and there was a whole closet full.

The condo also had two TV /VCRs plus VHSes to go with them. It was fun seeing our old time favorites and being able to share those with our kids.

This condo could easily sleep 8. In the master bedroom there are two queen sized beds. In the kid room there is a bunk bed, with a roll out bed underneath, and they provide a pack n play. They do not provide sheets for the pack n play so if you are planning on using it you may want to bring your own. We just used the sheets off of one of the beds we weren't using and it worked out just fine.

These is a short walk to the beach, but for our family it was far easier to load up the car and go park on the beach. Parking passes for the beach are cheap and you can get them almost anywhere.

The pool was COLD when we were there. It is probably refreshing in the summer, but in March when the temperture was only 75 degrees the pool was chili. It was a good size. For little kids, they really only had the steps to play on, otherwise they would have needed floatation devices.

The park at the condo was nice, it had three swings, three slides, and a picnic table. It was a great size for our kids, we had a hard time playing with them on the slide part. Our kids favorite was the teeter toter, They had never been on one before and played on that for the majority of the time.

The condo itself was clean and well stocked with kitchen appliances (full fridge, oven, toaster, coffee, blender, microwave, dishwasher, plates, silverware, knives pretty much anything you need). The patio is small but enclosed so you can easily leave the door open and the kids outside to play while making dinner. The walls are pretty heavy, we didn't hear to much going on around us and we were there over spring break. The kitchen table could seat everyone that it sleeps.

All in all we had a wonderful trip to the beach. It was nice not having to pack toys for the condo or for the beach, it made packing a lot lighter. There is information at the condo over places to see and things to do in the area. The condo is centrally located in the town nothing was far.
Owner's Response: Thank you for the kind words. We are glad your family enjoyed your time at the Sandy Turtle!

I chose The Sandy Turtle for its kid-friendly appeal. We have a 2.5 & 4.5 year old. We were able to park right at the front door. We didn't have to lug luggage up and down stairs. The unit was very clean and well-stocked. There were plenty of small details that we appreciated such as a step stool for the little ones, numerous towel bars, and plenty of space to put our luggage and beach items. The kitchen was well-equipped. There were even utensils for our kids. Although there were plenty of games and toys in the condo and a playset on the grounds of the complex, our kids thought the bunk bed was the best toy ever! The pool was nice when we tired of the beach. Just a short walk from the condo after the kids' naps. Perfect!

Rarely are things as good as advertised. This place was perfect. It fully accommodated 4 adults and 3 children under 8 with plenty of room. Location was perfect. I would recommend this to anyone with children, stop looking now because you found the one.
Owner's Response: We are glad to hear that you had a great time and enjoyed the Sandy Turtle!

My friend and I rented this condo for ourselves and our 3 children, ages 4, 6 and 8 and it was perfect. Very clean, comfortable and spacious. The pool was nice but I would recommend bringing your own lounge chair if you plan on spending much time there. The chairs and shaded picnic tables were often taken. The beach was a short walk and our kids actually enjoyed the playscape/swings/see saw more than we expected. The condo itself had tons of games and movies so the kids were never bored during our 3 night stay. The ladies in the front office were sweet and helpful as well. Very short drive to all that is available in Port A. I'd definitely rent The Sandy Turtle again!

Our 18 month old grandchild's parents were wowed at well-suited this place was for young children. The condo was also exceptionally clean and well stocked with all the kitchen things needed for the breakfasts and lunches when we ate "in".
