NEED A FALL GETAWAY? IT'S FABULOUS AT THE BEACH! DOGS FLY FREE!!

Port Aransas House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 12, Pet Friendly!

After two extended family reunions on the coast in New England, we knew we wanted to create that opportunity closer to home. As I searched the web for property on the Texas Coast, I found the Blue Roost. I fell in love with the blue tile in the kitchen and knew the kids and their friends would love the Seven Dwarfs room upstairs. We drove down to Port A mid week in the Spring of 2010 and put in an offer. And the rest, as they say, is history! We love staying at the Blue Roost and we know you will, too.

This charming beach house gives you the best of both worlds - close to the beach and to town. The sand is less than 5 minutes away via the private La Playa neighborhood boardwalk and our place is your best location for the yearly SandFest event located right across the boardwalk on the beach.

As our guest at the Blue Roost (an owner managed property) you will have easy access to the house via your personal lock code - which means no coordinating schedules to pick up/drop off keys and no danger of losing keys at the beach!

The Blue Roost is a three bedroom, two bathroom beach house that sleeps up to 12. It is comfortable enough for a quiet stay for two and large enough for a vacation with the extended family. Great for girls getaways, fishing excursions and family trips.

This beach house has a large, fully equipped kitchen that holds everything you need to feed friends and family. The beautiful blue tile island in the kitchen is the heart of the house. The two dining room tables seat 10 with an additional three seats at the kitchen island. For morning coffee or al fresco dining, just outside the kitchen the covered sitting area is perfect for 5 with adirondack chairs around the side deck for 4 more.

The cozy living room has two full sized slip covered Pottery Barn sofas. If you need to stay in touch with the outside world, access the wifi throughout the house and on the deck. Use the new flat screen TV to see DVDs, Cable TV and Netflix when you want to take a break from the sun.

The large master bedroom downstairs has a king bed and the equally large guest room across the hall has two queen beds. The downstairs bedrooms share a bathroom. The upstairs, called the Seven Dwarfs room by my kids, is a fabulous 37-foot-long bedroom with one queen bed, 4 twin beds and a bathroom. All bedrooms are equipped with a cable TV and a VCR. All bedding and bath towels are provided. No wimpy towels here!

The upper deck is a great area to work on a tan while enjoying a lovely birds eye and partial view of the Gulf. When you've had enough sun, lounge on the covered lower deck and enjoy the balmy breezes and sounds of the sea. Both decks have gates at the steps, providing a secure area for small children or pets.

Other amenities include:

• Plenty of covered parking

• An outdoor shower and hose to wash off the sand

• A playhouse and sand toys for the kids

• A basketball hoop – bring a basketball!

Special Rate info:

We have special monthly rates ($2200) for Winter Texans and Snowbirds. November - February is a terrific time to be at the beach!

About Maggie and Bruce Tate

We love traveling and enjoy the beach going as often as time permits. We have two teenage girls and a golden retriever and usually bring a pack of friends to the beach with us. We currently live in Austin, TX.

Maggie and Bruce Tate purchased this house in 2010

Why Maggie and Bruce Tate chose Port Aransas

Our house is close to the beach and to town. The kids like to have the option of beach time or shopping and it's all walking distance. The house is on a cozy little street in a sweet neighborhood. We chose the Blue Roost because I fell in love with the blue tile in the kitchen.

What makes this house unique

We enjoy beach time, searching for shells, watching birds (and people!) Our favorite coffee and gelato place, Coffee Waves, is a mile a way and we like to walk there to get an afternoon treat. The upper deck is great for sitting in the sun. We love the layout of the house - the big open kitchen is a gathering place for everyone. The upstairs bedroom is terrific for the kids and their friends.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed at #2 La Playa for 60 days in Jan-Feb, 2011. It is a large comfortable freestanding condo within 100 yards of the municipal beach of Port Aransas. We had a great time walking and jogging on the beach, collecting shells, photographing the birds, etc. If you are not familiar with Texas beaches, you can walk or drive for over 10 straight miles. Heating and air conditioning work well but are rarely needed. The kitchen is large and well equipped. The two decks have southern exposure which is excellent and the street is very quiet. It is about a mile to town with shopping, restaurants, churches, etc. We will be staying here in the future which is the best sort of endorsement you can give.

Wonderful home away from home with benefits!!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful stay at the Blue Roost! Our dogs were SO happy to be with us - they LOVED the ocean more than I would have thought, and we were so grateful to have them with us. We felt like we were at home at the Roost... so comfortable and very close to the beach. Can't wait to go back, our daughter's were so excited to be there! The internet, movies, puzzle, and Netflix options were welcome! The kitchen was fantastic to cook in. Thanks so much to the owners for offering the home to us with our entire family!!

You won't be sorry you stayed at the Blue Roost!

My Mom, 2 sisters, my son and his family and myself, stayed for a week at the Blue Roost in Port Aransas. We had a great time! The house is very comfortable and had plenty of room for the 5 adults and 2 kids. We were expecting two more adults and 2 more kids, but they were not able to come; but there still would have been plenty of room for everyone. The La Playa area was quiet, the beach is a short walk away over the dunes via the boardwalk. My dog even liked it, except for the waves! I was able to revisit some places I had not seen in over 40 years. The house has everything you need: dishes, appliances, wifi (which went out while we were there but was speedily repaired. Thanks!), cable, blender, washer and dryer, lots of beach toys to borrow, even a basket of beach towels. We loved staying here and I hope to return again someday! Thanks, Maggie and Bruce, for letting us stay in your wonderful home!

Owner's Response: Thanks! We've been through 3 modems in about 6 weeks. Frustrating for sure! Upon advice of the Century Link tech who came out to see what the problem was, we put a new surge protector on the outlet. So far so good!

great winter get away

  • 5 of 5
We have stayed here in the winter for the last four years. Very comfortable, very convenient to the beach, nice TV and internet. 3 parking spots which is at a premium so close to the beach. An excellent feature is the south facing deck which gets sun all winter days while being sheltered from the north wind. Great winter get away.

Blue Roost

  • 5 of 5
This is a lovely home with easy access to the beach. It has delightful furnishings and was very clean and welcoming. The railings around the porch make it secure for families with pets and/or younger children. We found the owners very easy to work with and more than responsive to inquiries. This is a great beach house with a short walk to the beach, through the neighborhood.

great house

  • 4 of 5
Great time had by all. Internet not working, but not a problem. Would suggest a better stock of toilet paper. One roll per bathroom not adequate for a 5 day stay for 8 adults. Beautiful house, great location. Will stay here again in the fall.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the feedback. In the past we've provided toilet paper to get through the first few days at the house with the expectation the guests will provide more (toilet paper, paper towels, dish soap etc) if needed. Unfortunately due to a few guests clearing out stocks and supplies, we can't leave a lot of extras out. In the future, I would hope that guests feel free to contact me while they are at the house because I am more than happy to take care of these issues.
