About Ted and Margaret O'Neill

Ted and I have been married for 36 years. I was a flight attendant for an international charter airline and Ted was a International songwriter. We met in London and were married in 5 weeks. Ted is originally from Ireland and I am an original Texan.

We have lived all over the world.We moved to Port Aransas in 2003 because we love Texas and wanted to be near the beach because we both love the sea. When we were first married we lived in a 250 year old house on the sea in Bangor, County Down.

Ted and Margaret O'Neill purchased this condo in 2003

Why Ted and Margaret O'Neill chose Texas Gulf Coast

Port Aransas was our dream town with miles of beaches and a friendly community. We bought this property because it was close to the beach. We developed the the property ourselves and built two houses with three units. We can still build three more cottages on it. We also found out recently we could build a house on this property with panoramic sea and channel views.Hopefully to come soon.

What makes this condo unique

Private and just the two houses on a half acre, less than a minute drive to the beach or a short walk, also to the Sandfest Festival! Plenty of parking , boat parking, large grass lawn. The restaurants and shopping are all close by. Pets are welcome, we do not have a size or weight limit on dogs. We are not a management company. The VRBO name stands for Vacation Rentals by Owners and we are that. Most of the rentals now offered on VRBO are managed by agents. As the owners your comfort and enjoyment of your vacation time is important to us. We are onsite to help you with all your needs.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I reserved one of the "Green" units for my graduation weekend. I was expecting family and also knew I had pups traveling with me so this was the perfect option for my situation. It is located around the corner from a street that takes you directly to the beach which was super convenient. Margaret was wonderful!! She lives onsite and was available for any questions we may have had, and was the best hostess I could have possibly asked for. We had 6 people and a "fluffy wolf pack" and there was plenty of room for all of us! The house was fully furnished and had plenty of towels, kitchen needs, and general seating for a large party. Even after we packed up and moved out, one of my party members accidentally packed away a few of her items, and we left a pair of shoes. I actually live down the highway from her and we got in contact and exchanged the items again afterwards. Margaret was accommodating, patient, kind, helpful, and absolutely wonderful in being a hostess and an all around help whenever needed. I would absolutely book with her again!

Feels like home, bring the family, bring the furries and truly relax!

  • 5 of 5

We had the chance to stay in these great homes for our beach wedding weekend. The description and photos of the home were exactly as stated,in fact the owners exceeded our expectations in both lodging and hospitality! When you travel, you look for a clean place, in a great location. These homes definitely delivered. The best part is that these rentals don't feel like rentals at all. You truly feel "at home". The decor is gorgeous. The location is wonderful. The indoor space and especially the awesome outdoor patio spaces are the best you'll find on the island! These homes offer plenty of privacy and quiet rooms while still being close enough for a family or group gathering right outside.

Here's my run down on each of the 3 attached/adjacent homes offered in this rental.

The Blue House is amazing! It is incredibly inviting and spacious. I stayed in this home on the eve of my wedding and it was wonderful. We found tons of space to use for our DIY wedding projects. Imagine about 12 women making 100 cupcakes and wedding centerpieces, while the men came in and out from their fishing escapades, the teens ran around after returning from the beach and the dogs happily watched from the house and the safely gated wrap around upstairs porch. I also managed to get some sleep there too!

We completely loved the Green House (Downstairs) The use of the fenced yard downstairs was great for us and our dogs. This was the most enjoyed and used house we rented while in Port A. The washer and dryer were so great to have. Since we had rented the three homes together, we were able to make use of the plentiful patio spaces around and between the homes. In fact we had our wedding reception there, to save us from some strong winds on the beach.

The Green House (upstairs) is completely charming. This home had so many soft beds which makes it perfect for groups and families. The wrap around gated deck was a favorite for our dogs and friends. The master bedroom was fit for a queen, and I (we) loved the whole house!

All in all, I would highly recommend this rental to anyone, the owners can accommodate groups large or small. It's really hard to find a comfortable and clean pet friendly place. These rentals have done it. Located close to everything fun in Port A. The perfect escape "back home" after a long day at the beach and all of the other local hot spots. The best in Port Aransas!

Green House 2

  • 5 of 5

The two of us have stayed at this condo from January to early April in both 2012 and 2013. We plan to return each year that this unit is available. We are winter Texans and truly love this home. Although there are numerous additional sleeping arrangements at Green House 2, it’s just the two of us staying here and writing this review. The pictures on the website are very useful and an accurate depiction of what you’ll find here.

Some of our favorite things about this home are:

• Everything is on one floor which is the ground floor. No stairs to traverse. Important if you’re older.

• Remote and quiet location. Although we are relatively close to town, we are located at the end of a private drive off 11th Street which makes for a very quiet neighborhood.

• Fenced-in yard. We love that there is a 6 foot fence all around the back yard. You can let your dog out from the house to a completely secure and safe grass area.

• Private back porch. There is a nice outdoor table and 4 chairs on a concrete deck. There is also a charcoal and a large gas grill which we use regularly. We kayak fish so when we’re not on the flats, the boats are inside the 6 foot fence and behind a lockable gate. This is perfect security for us and it’s easy to load the yaks on and off the truck.

• Close to the beach. We start our day each morning with a bike ride from Green House 2 to the beach and back. It’s great exercise and is a short and safe road ride to the beach.

• Close to the beach 2. If we want to surf fish or sunbathe, the beach is very close. We love to back our truck up to the water’s edge and set up for a day of surf fishing/sunbathing. I really enjoy sitting in an easy chair, sipping a beverage and waiting for the rods to go off.

• Parking is directly next to the unit. We love having our vehicle so close for loading and unloading our “stuff”.

• All the luxuries of home! This condo is very well equipped with everything anyone would need to enjoy a one day or a 3 month stay. Things that are here we really appreciate are:

1. a comfortable king bed

2. walk-in clothing storage areas

3. newer washer and dryer in the spare bathroom/shower

4. new microwave oven

5. newer large side by side refrigerator-freezer with filtered water and ice maker

6. very functional and easy to use stove/oven

7. large double stainless steel sink and garbage disposal unit in the kitchen

8. spacious “main” shower in the larger bathroom

9. new flat screen tv 2012

10. direct tv

November Indian Summer

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the warm Gulf waether for November and the home was actually better than shown on the photos. Very roomy and clean.

We have already rebooked this for next year and recommended it to all of our friends who visit this part of Texas.

Green Disappointment

  • 2 of 5

The house is not what it apperared in the picture. Much more tired and dirty. I spent the first three days cleaning dead roaches out of pots and pans and dirty food off cabinets and tile rewashing dishes and silverware, pots and pans and getting roach dropping out of drawers and cabinets with my own cleaning products. There was a live roach crawling up the bathroom wall the first few minutes we were there. Half the light bulbs were burned out. Not one remote worked for anything. That means no DVD and unless you had a volunteer to change the channel, good luck! The TV in the twin room didn't work at all. The WIFI didn't work well and I never figured out the username. When I asked which account it was the only response I got was a password and finally gave up asking. The floors were dirty and sticky. We had to wear socks and flip flops to keep our feet from being black on the bottom. The master bathroom sinks didn't drain unless you took the center plug out. There was junk piled up on the side of the house. The stacked washer and dryer area was dirty. It was ill kept. The only good thing was the location and the king bed was comfy. I rented for a month and didn't go the last week or so because it was depressing. I gave it to a friend to stay and she wasn't thrilled but it was free for her! In defense of the owner, she seems very nice and was very concerned about the condition of the property and has said that she is going to take seriously the problems of the property and get things back in order as she had hired a manager and housekeeper to take care of the houses but that they obviously weren't tending to the property properly. It could be nice and I hope she gets it there again as it's a short walk to the beach.

Owner's Response: While there was some truth to this review it was completely unfair and totally exaggerated. In the nine years we have been renting out our homes in Port Aransas, this is the only negative review we have received. We have always managed our homes ourselves, except for the year of 2012 . Our management choice though carefully weighed, turned out to be a mistake. Our contract has always stated that , "Your comfort is our priority, we want to provide a clean and pleasant accommodation for your vacation so if there is a problem please notify us immediately so we may attend to it." The writer of this review rented the Green house for one month, she emailed us twice, once about the remotes,and once about the toilet being stopped up. We addressed both of the issues the same day. She then called mid month to say that she was going back to Austin and could a friend stay in the house. Three weeks later we received notification from VRBO that we had a review. We were shocked as this guest never gave us an opportunity to know that the problems existed to fix them. The first time we heard about bugs and dirty floors were in the review. We offered the guest a generous compensation. We haven't written a response before this because we thought people would evaluate the good reviews versus one bad review. However we have noticed that 8 people have said this review was helpful, and on the wonderful reviews 2 or 3 say it was helpful. Which doesn't seem fair. We have many return guests and in fact the Winter Texans that arrived to stay in the Green House a few weeks after this review was posted, have returned every year during the winter for the last 4 years. Note: In regard to the bugs, we were paying a service to spray once a month. We changed services and we have managed our houses ourselves since 2013. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask.
