I consider myself to be very blessed and fortunate to live in a country where we can enjoy our freedoms. I am a lucky mom to a wonderful teenage son. I find the world and people fascinating and relish the time I can spend traveling and exploring.. I love to travel, experience the world and spend time outdoors.

Jane Livingston - Owner purchased this condo in 2013

When I first visited Port Aransas I knew that I wanted to live there someday. Island Retreat has great ocean views and the property has plenty of room with all kinds of amenities. 2 Pools, Grills, Playground, Volleyball, Basketball, Tennis

Courts and Shuffleboard.

Being on the 3rd floor which is the top floor provides for great views. The Penthouse layout is much larger than the regular 3 bedrooms and has 1,650 sq. ft. We have added a den that provides another separate sleeping area. We are an easy walk over the dunes on the boardwalk to the flat part of the beach. It is so relaxing to sit on the large balcony for hours watching the waves, reading a book our spending time with friends and family.

Awesome Spring Break!

This was a very nice condo that had everything we needed for a week of fun away from home. We cooked most of our meals and the kitchen is very well stocked - everything imaginable was there and everything worked well. The dining table easily accommodated our party of 7, and the kitchen is huge. With the separate bar area, it's easy for several people to be preparing food and drinks simultaneously without getting in anyone's way. One suggestion: the mini frige in the bar area seriously needs defrosting! The master bedroom was comfortable and spacious. One of our couples thought their bed was a bit hard, but ours was very comfy with its memory foam topper. It's great to be on the beach and the views are awesome, plus you're so close and can walk to the nice wide, sandy beach in no time at all. The Gulf was a bit cold, so we considered using one of the two pools in the community, but they were also very cold and not very clean. All in all, it wasn't really hot enough for swimming anyway, so we didn't miss it. The only problem we really had was trying to unlock the door on our arrival. We were issued two keys from the office, both of which unlocked the lock on the door knob, but the deadbolt was also locked, so it took another trip to the office to get the deadbolt key and then we were in! We came from Michigan, so we arrived quite late in the evening, but fortunately, the office remained open until after 10 pm and they were helpful. So all in all, the condo was very comfortable and it was clean as well. It's not real updated (the tile is old and cracked in some places, bathrooms have older fixtures, popcorn ceilings, laminate counter tops, etc), although the carpet is quite new. If you're looking for new and updated, you might pass on this condo, but if you're comfortable with the 80's/90's, and you like a spacious, clean place, then this just might be the place for you. The owner, Jane, responded promptly to emails and was easy to contact. We had a great time and would definitely stay here again if we were in the area.

Loved it!

My 5 girlfriends and I stayed here for two nights in January and loved it! We wanted a place w/enough beds for each of us to have our own and privacy for the late sleepers/early risers and this place fit the bill perfectly. Seven individual beds, plus a sofa sleeper and a murphy bed are available! I slept on the couch just because I love sunrises and it was the most comfortable couch I've slept on....I didn't even use the sleeper! This condo is not just as described! It is better! Nice and comfortable furnishings make you feel right at home and it has everything you'd want in the kitchen. Bring your own condiments & coffee, though as no foodstuffs are furnished. The view from the balcony was perfect and we had our morning coffee out there. It faces east so it would be great for cocktails in the evening, too, but it was rather cold so we had ours in the roomy interior! It's only a few minutes drive to shops and restaurants or about a 10 minute walk to the main town area. Ate at Beaches, a great casual BarBQ/Burger/Bakery place that's great for families, too, and at Pelican Cove, a little more upscale and not family oriented since it's pricey and food's not geared to kids/teens. The only issue is the old & persnickety elevator which is difficult but not impossible to work, but we're all perfectly capable of climbing stairs, which is better for you anyway! Don't let kids operate alone, though, as the door needed unlatching upon landing on the ground floor a couple of times and it makes it seem like you're stuck there, but you're not! Jane was easy to contact by phone for questions and the office for checkin/out was a snap. We are already making plans to book again for a fall trip!

Six 60+ ladies stayed in this beautiful condo for a girls' weekend and it could not have met our needs any better than a resort! The three bedrooms have five individual beds including 3 kings and a set of bunk beds, and the dorm den has a set of double bunks and a twin, so having our own individual beds was no problem. Plus, in addition, the dining area has a beautiful cabinet/sideboard style murphy bed, that, although we never used, has a near new thick memory form mattress in it that looked very comfy. I love sunrises so I just slept on the most comfortable couch I've ever slept on, even w/o pulling the sleeper out! And the sunrise was perfect! I also sat on the balcony wrapped in a blanket, watching the sun rising over the water and even saw a couple of coyotes & rabbits in the dunes! The condo is appointed w/beautiful and comfortable furnishings, not cheesy touristy cheap stuff you find in others. All the comforts you'd find in a fully equipped kitchen were available, like a blender, bar area, coffee makers, pots/pans/dishes/cups/glasses/everything's there! Taker ur own condiments & coffee, though as none are provided. This place was like being at home w/a gorgeous beach view. A couple of our guests braved the cold and walked on the walkways over the dunes to the beach and they loved it!

The only minor issue is the old and creaky elevator that takes finesse to work. You do have to understand how old timey gated elevators work....it has its quirks and several times we laughed because only one of us could get it to work and the next time, it would work for someone else and not the previous operator. We are all perfectly able to climb the stairs to the third floor, so it didn't bother us that it was rather slow, like us, and cranky, also like us! I would not let children operate it w/o an adult through.....it never got stuck, but we did have to unlatch the door at the very top of the inner door a time or two since it wouldn't open when landing on the ground floor. I think the salt air has done a number on the mechanical parts after years of use.

All in all, we would definitely stay here again. The location, is only a few minutes drive or 10 minute walk from shops/restaurants/bars and it was too cold for walking so we drove everywhere. Ate at Beaches, had super BarBQ/Burgers and Pelican Cove for great seafood, but Cove isn't for families as it is pricey! All in all, we loved our weekend and are making plans for a fall trip!

the place was very clean and a great view of the gulf. everything u will need is there. great location in town and very easy to get around town. price was worth the stay. one thing that would help is if they fixed the elevader for bringing up personals, three flights of stairs was very hard to carry all of ur personals. over all it was a great stay and would stay again for sure :)
