Overview

Port Aransas Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + 2 Convertible Bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4-8)

My condos are 100% self-managed! You will have direct contact with the owner.

There are no commissioned leasing agents or front desk staff and no running around town hunting down or returning keys. You will have your own personal access code.

I employ my own housekeeping and maintenance staff and provide upgraded towels, linens and many extras that you won't find in the corporately managed properties on Mustang Island.

Reservations are limited to mature individuals and families, which I personally screen.

Experience the difference that comes with pride in ownership and personal commitment to my guests.

About Richard Craft

With 3 million frequent flyer miles under my belt, I've had the chance to stay in condos all over the world for business and pleasure.

And I've managed to stay in almost all of the Port Aransas condo projects on various fishing trips during the past few years too.

From those experiences, I knew exactly what our guests would want in a vacation rental...and put them in the renovation plan.

And...I'm not just and absentee owner...I visit the property regularly and continue to make updates and make sure everything is fresh and clean and good working order...and make a few new tweaks, here and there.

I handle 100% of all reservations and customer service personally and employee my own housekeeper to provide a higher level of service and personalization for every guest.

Richard Craft purchased this condo in 2014

Why Richard Craft chose Port Aransas

I love the views and the location of The Mayan Princess. It has the best pools in Mustang Island and because it is located between 'Port A' and 'The Island', we have have the best of both worlds...besides being minutes from Corpus Christi and the airport.

What makes this condo unique

I purchased #307 in April 2014 and immediately began the renovation. I look forward to sharing it with sharing it with our friends and guests.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Three families of old friends thoroughly enjoyed our time here. The condo is beautiful and Beach Bums was great...perfect!



Favorite part of the trip was walking out on the beach at dusk. One of the kids chased down the ice cream man in a full sprint down the beach for a 1/2 mile. :-)



Great Weekend!

A diamond in the rough

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 (kids 11 & 9) from the Chicago area, stayed in Richard's condo for a week during our spring break. This is the first time we have ever done a VRBO and I have to say that I am so glad I did! When I was searching for a place, I checked out renting through the MP directly and what a bad idea that would have been! Richard's hospitality made this vacation feel like a 5 star resort where renting directly from the MP itself would have been a 2 star!

The attention to detail that Richard has put into his rentals is incredible. The condo itself is everything the listing says and more. It truly is meticulously decorated, and the views from each balcony are amazing. The fact that Richard includes a day rental from beach bums was a real treat! I can't say enough great things about this condo!

We generally visit a different state every time we travel...but I have to say, after staying in this condo, I will be giving that a second thought! I wish we lived in driving distance and could make this a regular getaway!

Thank you so much for sharing your condo with us!

PERFECT GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5

We stayed a week during Spring Break 3/2015. From the initial booking to the very end we experienced the best of the best. Richard Craft was extremely responsive to all our questions. We were even fortunate enough to extend our stay. (THANK YOU RICHARD!!!). From the moment we walked into condo 307 we recognized all the special touches. It truly was a home away from home. The view was amazing. We could also sit out and view the pool from our balcony. The beds were extremely comfy!!! Perfect distance to Corpus Christi and great restaurants! Were lucky to be away from the loud beach crowds. The more we settled into the condo the more we found how much detail the owner put into this condo to ensure your experience was "THE BEST". The Beach Bums Rental was perfect which we used as soon as the sunshine decided to pay us a visit and we appreciated all of crafty's favorites! I can go on and on. All I can say is you've got to experience it for yourself. If you are looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of life and enjoy a nice family getaway, this is certainly the place. We are certainly coming back! :)

Family from Maine

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this property in early March 2015 and it was wonderful. Plenty of room, very relaxing and a wonderful place to walk on the beach. Very clean and very comfortable indeed. If we are in the area again, we will definitely contact the owners, who are charming and very welcoming people! You will not regret staying here. We have stayed in many places over the years and the owners excelled in making our stay enjoyable.

Wholehearted recommendation!

Frequent visitors to Port Aransas

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at every condo on the island. Without question Richard's condos are the best! The attention to detail, the fast reply on even the smallest concern, the staff was very friendly and helpful, especially Maggie. There are not enough words to describe this condo. There were 2 adults and 2 children, there was something for every one, we all used the master shower, it was amazing! The motion detected night lights in the kitchen and the hallway were very helpful. The 2 decks with the special seating Richard made were very comfortable and well laid out. Having 2 bathrooms upstairs with the bedrooms with a bathroom downstairs made life easier. Thank you again Richard for everything!

307 Mayan Princess is PERFECTLY located on Mustang Island...right in the middle. You're minutes from funky Port Aransas...or North Padre Island...and just 20 minutes from all the shopping along South Padre Island Drive in Corpus Christi...all the time being far enough away from the crowds when it comes time to head to the beach!
