To assist with security, wrist bands and parking passes are picked up at the office on check-in.

Our condo in the Island Retreat Resort in Port Aransas offers the convenience and privacy of home with all the activities and benefits of a vacation destination.

If staying in doesn't suit you after the sun goes down, there are clubs, taverns, waterfront restaurants and live music to entertain you. If big city entertainment is more your style, downtown Corpus Christi is a short 30 minutes away.

And don't forget 'shopping.' Port Aransas has your typical small town stores, souvenier shops and other specialty stores. There is a trolley for public transportation to get around in Port Aransas. Corpus Christie has all the shopping a larger city has including major retail stores and malls with souvenier shopping and local specialty stores also.

Why Steve & Susie Beninga chose Port Aransas

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.

Fantastic time

  • 5 of 5
Had a wonderful time staying at this condo. Location is perfect- easy walk down to the beach and swimming pool. Neighbors were quiet and I was even more surprised at all the amenities inside then condo. We rent apartments/condos frequently when we travel and this was the best. I have a two year old and hey had books, movies, toys (indoor and outdoor) for kids and board games for the adults. It was an unexpected surprised and helped entertain all of us. There is plenty of room inside and a great balcony. Owners were great and quick to reply with any questions. Location is close to stores and there is a little restaurant/bar on the beach close by (walking distance). I would highly recommend it and look forward to returning.

Just as described, great location, all the amenities of home

  • 5 of 5
We were very pleased that the condo was exactly as described and conveniently located near shopping and restaurants and most importantly, right next to the pool and a short walk over a private boardwalk to the ocean. The owners provided exceptional communication, even going above and beyond to text us when the condo was ready for our early arrival we requested. As a bonus, we were delighted to find kids' chairs and toys on the patio. As a family of five with three small children, we found the condo spacious and family-friendly. The master bathroom was even large enough to fit the portable crib, so the baby could nap and sleep undisturbed. We definitely hope to stay here again in the future!

Good condo close to the beach

  • 4 of 5
Good, norma,l 2nd floor condo. Close to the beach, about 1/4 mile from the door to the water. Great for kids. Air conditioner struggles the whole time we were there, about 78 was the coolest it could do in the heat of the day. Owner was very fast in answering questions any time I emailed him. Needs a new AC unit, but other than that I would use again.

Owner's Response: We are glad that you had a good time at our Condo, and we are sorry about the air conditioning issue. With that said we do wish that you would have gotten ahold of us during your stay and told us about the Air Conditioner, for we would not have hesitated to contact maintenances to have it checked out for you. We have had no issues with it all Summer so there was no way for us to know that there may have been one without your input. We hope you get to stay with us again.

Awesome Family Get a way!

  • 5 of 5
This condo was great for our 2 families to share and enjoy the beach as well as the pool. We used the BBQ pit just below the condo and near the pool and loved the convenience of having it near both. The condo was clean and well stocked with everyday items making our stay stress free. We recommend this condo and do plan on renting it in the future.

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5
We make an annual trek to Port A, staying at different condos. This one tops them all, from the always-shaded balcony to the well-equipped kitchen to the air purifiers to the ample number of beds. Added bonus: the complex offers the best boardwalk access to the beach. And the owner was great to work with.
