We have been vacationing at Port Aransas for over 50 years and enjoy the year-round wonderful weather at the beautiful Port A beach. We were blessed to be able to purchase this bright and open three bedroom home as new construction in Summer 2012 and are happy to share it with great renters. We hope you will be blessed during your stay at SonRise Cottage while enjoying special time with your loved ones on your vacation.

The Bells purchased this house in 2012

Growing up in Texas, my family would often run down to Port A for weekend getaways enjoying the beach and family fishing in a small town atmosphere. After we had kids, we continued the tradition so four generations of my family have enjoyed and continue to enjoy Port Aransas. Sonrise Cottage is special to us because it is located in a quiet neighborhood and so close to the beach that we walk there in just two minutes. We named our home 'Sonrise Cottage' to honor the risen Son of God and we are blessed each time we make a trip to this retreat. We hope you will have a blessed stay at Sonrise Cottage, too.

SonRise Cottage is within walking distance to the beach--only 0.25 miles via the boardwalk just down the street. It is also located in town so it is close to all restaurants, unique shops, and the Family Center (grocery store). We have provided many board games, Direct TV, and free Wi-Fi for entertainment. Spencer's Landing neighborhood association also maintains a community pool for guests' use during your stay.

We love our new, light, bright, and open vacation home and enjoy the colorfully-painted neighborhood--all Spencer's Landing homes are painted bright, tropical colors! Sonrise Cottage also feels kind of private because there are no backyard neighbors (vacant lot) and the homes directly across the street are only one-story and face the street on the other side making for a nice view from the porch. We also enjoy watching the 4th of July Firework display sitting on our porch with a cool drink.

SonRise Cottage - a perfect getaway!

What an amazing place to stay....the owner thought of everything, and the decor was wonderful...the listing description was completely accurate!
My family stayed here over Spring Break with my parents and my brother's family, so we used every bed and we never felt cramped or crowded. We loved the layout, it was very open and having the large table and bar with barstools were perfect for our family. I cooked 3 of the nights we were there, the kitchen had everything you could need, and then some. My youngest nephew couldn't wait to play some of the games that were in the pantry...there was something for everyone! My dad and kids enjoyed the huge TV in the Family Room that had more channels than you could ever want. And we were all thankful that we were just a short walk to the beach!
We all loved the decor! As a Christian, it was wonderful to see the wall of crosses and faith based momentos in every room! And the king size bed(s) were very comfortable. :)
The home has a large deck under the home that was perfect for grilling burgers on the pit that was provided; it was also a great place for all of the boys to hang out after spending a day at the beach. The owners provided a hose and shower for rinsing off your chairs, beach stuff and yourself!
The local grocery store is just a short drive, and there was a great donut shop nearby, so the location is great.
We will definately be staying at SonShine Cottage again, and we highly recommend this beach home for your next Port A visit!

The house has a great floor plan which makes it feel open and spacious. It is beautifully decorated with a beach theme helping you get in the vacation mode for Port Aransas and it's beaches.
The house was extremely clean for our arrival. The kitchen is completely stocked with everything you might need (even a crock pot!) and the king sized bed sleeps amazing. A nice, large master bath was plenty of room for us to spread out for our stay and not feel cluttered or cramped. My favorite part of the house is the washer and dryer! You can just shake off the sand outside and then wash your beach clothes as soon as you return from the beach. No stinky, dirty clothes to worry about.
The outside patio under the house has a picnic table and was a great place to hang out. The provided grill was put to good use for our steaks and burgers.
All in all, I highly recommend this home for a stay in Port Aransas! You won't be disappointed.
Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your kind words about our vacation home! We are so pleased you and your family enjoyed your stay at SonRise Cottage and that our "little extras" (washer, dryer, well-stocked kitchen) made you feel right at home. We hope you will think of us again for your next trip to Port A! Thanks, The Bells

The property was exactly as described. We took a lot more than we needed. This home felt like it was our own. The walk to the beach was really close, however we enjoyed renting a beach buggy that made it much more enjoyable especially at night.
We will definitely be back.
Owner's Response: Dear Pam,

Thanks so much for choosing our SonRise Cottage for your family vacation! We are so very pleased that y'all had a great time in Port A and that you found everything you needed in our property to make your stay a memorable time. We hope to have you back again and thanks for your kind words!

SonRise Cottage was a very nice property. The kitchen was well stocked and the bedrooms worked perfectly for us - loved that the spare room was also a king bed. We rented two different houses in the neighborhood and this one served as the "kid" house since it had the bunk room with 4 twin beds. I gave the property 5 stars because it really was nice, but will highlight a few of my issues - mostly with the property management. I will also preface by saying that Coastline Adventures was MUCH easier to deal with than the other management company we had to rent from, so I would not let these comments deter you from renting this property or from this management company.

While we understand that we are in a beach home and you can never really get the property clean, I did not expect to find dust bunnies EVERYWHERE. Sand yes, yucky dust collections under every piece of furniture and in every corner, NO. We had a one-year old crawler in our group and had to clean the house so she wasn't eating all the dust bunnies. The cleaning company needs to do a better job. Dust mops run really easily under furniture on tile flooring.

The kitchen faucet worked but was not properly secured and was wobbly. We notified the management company and they told us they would have maintenance out to fix it. Since we went to the beach we have no idea whether they showed up or not, but the faucet was never fixed.

One of the reasons we chose this property was for the bunk room. However, two of the four twin beds did not have sheets on them and there were no spares in the house. We had to pick up two sets of sheets from the management company. Luckily we didn't need all four beds until the end of the week.

The bunk room had one twin over twin bunk and one twin-twin trundle. We did not have to pull out the trundle til the end of the week and in some ways that was a blessing. With four kids under 6, a trundle that slid across the floor with a gentle touch was a safety hazard. We had to remove the casters so it wouldn't move so much, but only after two adults injured themselves trying to make the beds. We did re-install the casters before leaving. Maybe providing caster cups or something to hold the bed in place would be beneficial.

All in all a great property and despite my few negative comments, I would definitely stay in this property again and would recommend it to friends. We love the Spencer's Landing neighborhood for our family beach vacation.
Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your 5-star review and we are pleased that you and your extended family had a great family vacation in the Spencer's Landing Neighborhood. We are working with our management company to make sure that our home is always a safe and clean environment for our guests.

From the sleepy fishing village of my grandfather's fishing days in the 1930s to our favorite eclectic vacation spot in Texas, Port Aransas has always been a place our family has enjoyed for generations and so will you!

Some of our favorites . . .

*Try the fried shrimp at Catfish Charlie's in Corpus or the crab-stuffed jalapenos at Snoopy's Pier.

*Play a round of golf at Newport Beach & Dunes course and be sure to use one of mango-scented towels to cool off. But don't get off the fairways because there are snakes. Yikes!

*Play one of the many games with your family that are provided for family fun at our cottage.

*Take a sunset dolphin cruise and watch the dolphins play in their natural habitat. You will also go by the Lydia Ann Lighthouse and the crew will net some interesting sea creatures for those who want to get a close up look at croakers or stingrays.

*Toodle around town in a beach buggy.

*Buy a t-shirt at The Islander.

Other things to enjoy . . . Charter a boat for a deep sea fishing adventure. Dance to live music and enjoy nightly entertainment. Explore Port A by bike or cruise around on a beach buggie.

Fish the surf, the piers or the jetties. Build a sandcastle. Kayak to the 1857 Lydia Ann Lighthouse. Meet a dolphin. Picnic on the beach. Play a round of waterside golf. Search for seashells and island treasures. Shop our eclectic boutiques and shops for island treasures. Stroll the beach at sunset or sunrise. Take a ride on our free ferry or catch the free shuttle around town. Treat your taste buds with our coastal cuisine.
