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!

Very nice place

  • 4 of 5
Overall, the place was fantastic. I would recommend to others. A few short comings were the A/C would not go below 70 and would be hot in the summer. Also the bed in master is very soft and with two people, one tends to roll to the middle. Also the kitchen was missing a few minor things that are needed such as cheese grader and Tupperware or some type of closeable containers. Internet basically does not work. Takes the hot water forever to get hot. Sounds like a lot of issues but really they are minor and I mention them in hopes of improvement because this is an amazing unit. I will stay there again this summer if the air issue is resolved.

Owner's Response: Thanks Christi. Unfortunately, we cannot lower the thermostats because of the high humidity in the ocean air will cause the systems to ice up. And a I mentioned, we are in the process of transitioning to Time Warner this week. The mattress is brand new. We have provided food storage, but it tends to go home, along with the leftovers.

View is spectacular

  • 5 of 5
I've stayed in many vrbo rentals around the US and this has been the best experience! The unit is beautiful: clean, modern/updated, comfortable furniture, and beds. But the view!!! Wow!! 2 balconies. It's a gorgeous unit! Also the resort has 3 pools (we went in November and one pool was heated!) and a short walk to the beach that can't be beat. I know I'm rambling, but I do need to say a few words about Crafty (the owner). He makes you feel like it's his privilege to host you. As an owner, he truly understands that you are on vacation and wants you to have the best possible experience. He is attentive and helpful and just a great guy!

Best rental experience ever

  • 5 of 5
With many years of travel experience, I have never rented a property that was more user
friendly. Everything was modern, working, and impeccably clean. The owner is the most
helpful, accessible, and professsional person in the rental business. He provides you with tips on everything from restaurants to fishing, and his amenities for the condo include everything you would possibly want or need and then some-- like the nice welcome goody bag. The Mayan Princess is a nice complex, and unit 307 had to be the nicest in the whole place. If you want the best...this is the best. I only hope you don't beat me to the my next reservation...because my wife and I will be back.

Paradise!

  • 5 of 5
The Mayan Princess the best rental condos I have EVER stayed in. I had easy access to the owner if there were any problems. There weren't. I had even easier access to the beach .. so amazingly lovely and clean. Owner hooked us up with companies to rent tents/beach chairs so you don't have to buy and haul there. And the fishing -- hubbie was so happy with the personally recommended fishing guide available to customers of the Mayan Princess. Many recommendations for clubs/restaurants… so you are never left wondering if the place is great or just so-so. The condo we stayed in was very luxurious and this is not one of "those" condos you would imagine a bunch of college spring breakers ruining. Owner is very careful about who he rents to… as if it was his personal home. You WILL NOT be disappointed. I read previous comments from previous renters in their "Guest Book" and so many were so happy with their choice. GO FOR IT!!!

Girlfriends weekend was fantastic, loved the condo!

  • 5 of 5
When deciding on a home/condo/hotel to stay at for our girlfriend's weekend, we looked at lots of places on the internet. We also had all stayed in Port A many times in years past at different places. We all agreed that "Crafty's" places looked excellent and we loved the fact that he had a cleaning service that would ensure that when we got to the unit, we would find a clean, nice place to stay....up to a woman's standards. The owner more than lived up to his advertising! We enjoyed the place that is nicely updated and also the many personal touches he carefully attended to, like a gift bag and welcoming messages by e-mail, text and even a chalkboard in the room. All the beds were comfortable, even the pull-out single bed ottoman. We were very impressed and had a wonderful stay. We plan to rent from him again and are even hoping to make this an annual trip. The condo has lovely views and is very convenient to the beach and nice pools on the grounds. Even though his unit is privately managed, the staff at the complex were very nice and helpful.

Great Unit, Great Owner

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful stay in this condo. The owner's pre-arrival communication was perfect to help plan the trip. The unit is in great condition, well stocked, and the owner has thought of every detail. My wife and mother-in-law loved the beds and pillows, and the kids were very comfortable in the pull-out couch. The master shower is amazing. The beach was great and Beach Bums made it even better with their great service. The pools were nice too. Will be back.

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!
