Why Cheryl Vitek chose Port Aransas

We traveled to Port Aransas on family vacations for 12 years before we decided to build Serenity Shores Beach House. We built the house for our children, grandchildren, family and friends in mind. It has been a perfect place to escape from Michigan's winter weather to enjoy the sun, sand, and great fishing!

What makes this house unique

We enjoy the community and its amenities. It is 1.5 miles from the beach by car, golf cart, bike, skateboard, rollerblades, or walking with large six foot wide walkways. The fishing is extraordinary!

Guestbook comments from the manager

This is a great place to stay. We loved the kitchen and every room. Actually, we love the house. We realized there was a garage on the last day. Definitely would like to come back and stay here. Thank you for letting us stay at your beach.

Felt like a 2nd home vs a rental

  • 5 of 5

The accommodations were commodious, and we had plenty of room to store belongings and extras for all the families. The kitchen was stocked with all the pans and accessories we needed for all meals and BBQing! It was by far the homiest place we've stayed with 4 families! Enjoyed every minute of it, especially the balcony in the evenings. Beautiful, just beautiful! If there was a drawback it was that the two pools were shared among all the condos in the community. If the kids want pool time, it is crowded.

My whole family loved the house. Very comfortable beds and sofas/chairs. My 3 three old grandson loved the bunk bed and many toys. The kitchen was so well supplied & organized. This was a very good experience for us. Thank you!

Great place and we will stay again.

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here 2 years ago and it was terrific. Didn't stay here last year because we alternate years between the gulf and a family reunion. Will definitely stay here again in two years. It is exceptionally well equipped with quality products and the welcoming gifts are exceptional. We have been staying at the Gulf since 1999 and in several very nice places, but this is hands down the best place we have stayed. Even the Gulf cooperated, it was amazingly clear and no seaweed.

Owner's Response: It was great having your family with us again, and we are pleased you enjoyed the goodies waiting for you on arrival. We look forward to hearing from you in 2018! Or, maybe you will move the family reunion to Port A next year! :)

Great vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 12, which included seniors and teenagers, had a wonderful time at this home. It was so well appointed and beyond comfortable. Each master (except carriage house) having it's own bath was appreciated by all. The kitchen is WELL stocked with dishes, pots and pans etc. We did lots of cooking and used a wide variety of items. The entire house was beautiful and super clean. Early mornings and evenings were delightful on the deck. One thing I couldn't tell from the photos and descriptions was that the carriage house is on the same level with the rest of the second floor and is not a separate unit. That end of the second floor has outside access, but it is still part of the main house.

We bought car stickers for the beach and drove there (2 minutes) every day with our canopy (absolutely necessary for shade!) and chairs. The beach is wide and firm, good for volleyball, sand castles etc. The waves were fun for boogie boards (not SUPs), and the ocean bottom was perfect sand. No rocks or weeds.

Cheryl, the property manager, was very responsive to any question we had and was super helpful. We couldn't have asked for more. Many kudos to the owners and to Cheryl. They seem to think of everything. Everyone agreed this was the best vacation home we've ever had.

Port Aransas is a quaint little town set on the historical Mustang Island. The island was the place that vaqueros swam wild mustangs and horses across the channel to the barrier island. Horses do not like to swim unless forced to do so. The island allowed the vaqueros to keep the wild horses captive for training and then subsequent sale to the settlers of the southern coastal Texas area and to those that shipped them over the 'Great Water'. Every October Port Aransas holds a MustangFest where hundreds of Ford Mustang owners worldwide congregate.
