Living in Kansas we needed a vacation spot to meet with family from Texas. What better spot than by the ocean in a family friendly resort town that offers small town living yet access to a larger city scene in Corpus Christi. What a great place to relax and make special memories with friends and family.

Labor Day in Port A!

Needed some down time after my daughter's wedding and found it at Island Retreat in Port A. The condo was very nicely decorated, beds were comfy, and it was nice to be able to walk over the boardwalk to the beach. I appreciate the owner's communication efforts and attention to detail! We would love to return!

Nothing but Pleased

I will start by saying that I liked the owner from our first conversation. I could tell from talking to him that we would not have any problems with our stay. I'm happy to report that I was right. I'll add that I am very picky and this condo passed my "picky test" with flying colors. It was clean, it was comfortable, the location was great, the front office personnel were helpful and did I mention that the owners were extremely friendly. I will try to stay here again if/when we return to Port A. No complaints at all.

Awesome condo with all everything you get from home except for washer and dryer but that was no problem for us. Great location and access to the beach be warned get there early to get a good spot since it was open to the public and vehicles. We loved that there is wifi and a security guard. Also you're close to water burger and a few more restaurants. Great location we highly recommend this place.
