Dr. Richard Marks and his wife Frances have owned in Port Aransas for over 30 years.

Susan Marks purchased this condo in 1980

Because my husband loves to go fishing and my children love to swim!

Our condo has a unique charm all its own. Each room is themed and it is well-suited for families with kids. The view is the best part - 180 degree unobstructed view of the Texas Gulf. You can't get that from the houses on the island.

Would go again

The view is the best part, just beautiful! We loved sitting out on the balcony where there was room for everyone. We also liked that all 10 of us could sit down to a meal together at the same table. The kitchen got a little crowded with three women, but we managed. The master bedroom and bath were very comfortable, and the other sleeping arrangements and bath were fine. It's always a risk to reserve a place sight unseen, but we were pleased with the results. We would go back there again.

It was a fabulous weekend with comforts of home. This was a weekend me and my family will always treasure. The place was clean and all the neighbors were very nice. The view was something like a painting but was forever changing. So much space and easily accessible to tennis,pool, and picnic areas. We fished and played for 3 days.Watched movies and played board games. It was truley amazing!!! Thx you so much Susan and Richard for allowing renters to taste a bit of Heaven.

The pics online are at least 10 years old. Very dirty, towels have stains, no curtains on master bedroom so your up at 6am!! Had no pillow cases in 2 of the 3 bedrooms. The dishes were nasty, and not just from water stains. Half the outlets didn't work in the bedrooms. The couch smelled like urine. AND no housekeeping services:(. Very disappointed

Condo is very old. Needs to updated. The maintenance staff on facility is extremely rude. Air condition doesn't work properly in rooms. The condo was completely spotless when we left & we got charged a HUGE fee for the "made-up mess." The maid said that there was food on the walls..? There was no such thing. The lockbox was also broken when we arrived & we couldn't lock our condo during the stay. I will never stay here again.
Owner's Response: First of all, we know exactly who you are and your party was kicked out early by Island Retreat management because the police were called due to noise and someone urinating off of the balcony. We have pictures documenting the food on the walls and your charge for damage was completely justified. You will never be allowed to stay with us or at any Island Retreat condo. Thank you for not coming back.

Our group of 10 had a great time staying at this penthouse. There's plenty of sleeping spaces, a large dining area and comfortable living room. Everything was clean. Has a great view of the ocean and it's only a short walk to the water. Good location and close to the main strip in Port A. There's also a tennis court 100 yards away.
