Island Retreat is a great place to spend time with family and friends. This smoke-free condominium is just a short boardwalk away from the beach. The town trolley stops by the front office. Boat parking on-site.

The beach is awesome for playing with the kids, acting like a kid yourself, enjoying the scenery, taking a long stroll, a morning jog, reading a book, or delighting in the last rays of a gorgeous sunset. If you don't feel like get sandy at the beach relax by one of the two pools or play some tennis, volleyball, shuffleboard or basketball.

Or simply treasure pushing your child in a swing on the playground as they giggle with enjoyment.

Port Aransas has some great restaurants for when you feel like eating out (or you didn't have any luck fishing). For those who are feeling lucky there is the Texas Treasure gambling ship.

If you feel like exploring there are plenty of options - scuba diving, snorkeling, sailing, deep sea fishing, Aransas Wildlife Refuge and Whooping Crane Habitat or the beach!

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 2005

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

The second floor has gulf views with a large balcony that spans the living room and master bedroom. We have maximized our condo to accommodate families to that parents can be together with kids and grandchildren. We are beachfront with an easy walk on the boardwalk over the sand dunes 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.

4GENERATIONS

  • 5 of 5
The condo was perfect for a 4 generation, ages 4-75, family trip. We had lots of space, comfortable beds and everything in good working order. The little ones found a chest full of beach toys on the balcony and had great fun. There was good access to the beach and a rinse shower at the end of the walkway. The pool, playground and laundry area were very convenient to the condo and we used all three.

JUST THE GIRLS!!!

  • 5 of 5
Our group of seven women friends just spent a fabulous getaway at this condo. We loved everything about it. We had so much fun in Port Aransas and really think it's a great location with lots of shops and restaurants nearby. And the beach is great! This condo had everything you could possibly want and was very clean, very fun themed bedrooms, had plenty of beds, and a fantastic view of the beach and most importantly, the sunrises. We hope to visit again! Thank you Jane!

VERY NICE, GREAT VIEW, GREAT LOCATION, CLEAN!!!

  • 5 of 5
I absolutely loved the beach front condo it was a short five minute walk to the beach. I just loved falling asleep to sound of the waves crashing against the beach and seeing the beautiful sunrises. The condo was well maintained and really clean. Everything was in a nice order and design that is really helpful for tourists are visitng Port Aransas for the first time. We will be back, Jane!

NICE CONDO AND LOCATION BUT DIRTY.

  • 4 of 5
Bathrooms, bed linens and refrigerator were clean. Master bedspread needs refreshing. We had to mop our own floor and under the beds were very very dirty. The furniture was grungy and the trash can had fish stink in it. After we dealt with those concerns ourselves (ignoring under the beds), the location was very nice. The pool was lovely, and we enjoyed our stay. A good bargain, but I don't think the cleaning service is up to the task.

Owner's Response: We are so very, very sorry to hear that the cleanliness of our condo was definitely not up to our standards. We were surprised to receive this review as we had received your email last week telling us how much you were enjoying the view of the ocean from our condo. We wish we had known about the items you wrote about in your review while you were there, because we would have had them taken care of while you were there asap. While we are happy to know that the bathrooms, linens and refrigerator were clean, it is not acceptable for other areas to be less than clean. Port Aransas is known as a great fishing destination and our previous guests must have had some luck fishing and spilled some fish in the trash can beyond the liner. We strive to have all of our guests enjoy their stay and want to come back again and again. We have spoken with our cleaning service and they had someone new filling in and they will be providing her additional training and overseeing her work more closely. Our couch is less than 9 months old so I am not sure how it can be grungy and the master bed comforter is a Tommy Bahama comforter that is less than a year old. The only thing we can think of is that the Port Aranasas area has some of the highest salt content air in the USA, in fact, so much that it used as an area for testing automobiles ability to withstand corrosive environments. The salt comes in with the air and it will settle on the floor, furniture and everything else. The salt combined with the water it attracts can make things feel sandy when they are just really salty. If you noticed how your car got filmy in just one night, it is the same thing. The salt air settles on the surfaces in the condo and creates a layer of salt on everything that is exposed to the air. Once again, we are very sorry and had we known about these things while you there, we would have had them rectified asap. We are glad you enjoyed our location, the pool and your stay. We do hope that you stay with us again.
