Our condo is located at the Island Retreat Resort and offers two boardwalks to take you to the beach. Both boardwalks were renovated in 2012. There are multiple grill and picnic areas on the property as well as tennis courts, two pools, a playground, beach volleyball, and basketball court. Port Aransas is on the very northern tip of Mustang Island at the intersection of Harbor Island and St. Jo's Island. It is an eco-tourism area, with lots of wildlife including a huge variety of migratory birds. Bay and deep sea fishing is excellent with many charter boats in the marina. Just 30 minutes away is the USS Lexington and right next door is the Texas State Aquarium. We are located approximately a three minute drive to town which is easy to get to while also offering serenity and peace from the hustle and bustle. If you are a golfer, you can grab your clubs and head over to the Palmiila Golf and Beach Resort just down the road. This course offers greens on both sides of the highway with a cart bridge connecting the two. The club has a Pro shop and snack bar available. Schlitterbahn Waterpark is only a 20 minute drive down the island, the hottest coolest time in Texas!

When my husband booked this condo for a last minute vacation I was very skeptical. I started reading bad reviews and saw bad photos that other reviewers had posted and immediately tried to cancel our reservation. The Turn Key representtative told me it was too late for me to cancel but informed me if there were any issues when we arrived they would do whatever they could to help out. So I crossed my fingers and prayed. We arrived and again I felt it was a little sketchy looking on the outside but not too bad. I was pleasantly surprised when I I walked into our condo. Before I start listing the things that could use improvement, I want to say that this place had just about everything we needed for the 2 nights we stayed with 4 adults and 2 children. A roof over our head, place to cook and great access to the beach. Now to the improvements that could turn this place into an excellent stay. Everything seemed to be cleaned as well as possible. The living room seating could definitely use some updating. They weren't very comfortable and were covered in what looked like some old curtains to hide the ugly cushions. For a condo that is supposed to sleep 6 people the living room is only comfortable for 4 maybe 5 and the dining room table only has 3 chairs. The kitchen seemed to have plenty of dinnerware, utensils, cookware and appliances that would be needed. I slept on the king size bed in the Captains room and thought it was very comfortable. The TV in that room however is possessed and had to be unplugged because you turn it off with the remote and 2 minutes later it's on again. There was only 1 remote to the 2 bedroom TVs so it had to be shared. The condo could use more rugs throughout. The sand is so fine at the beach that it inevitably gets tracked into the house and it'd be nice to wipe your feet off before getting into bed. The bathrooms had plenty of towels which was great. The master bath tub could use some renovating. The walls were cracking and there was some mold or staining of the caulk which made me uneasy giving my little ones a bath. I didn't personally use the 2nd bedroom or bathroom but the other adults that were with us said it was sufficient. As for the complex the pool looked great but would have been a plus if it had been heated. The water was freezing while we were there so we didn't get to use it. My kids enjoyed the playground. And I loved the short walk down to the beach. I'd definitely stay here again for such a low price.
Kris and the staff were terrific. Very comfortable property for group of 15 including adults and children. Highly recommended.
We really enjoyed our time! Great location. The room was clean and had all the little essentials you needed for cooking etc. When we arrived there was an issue with the lock on the back door. I called and immediately they handled the situation. We could see the ocean from the porch. The walk was a short trail right to the beach. My favorite was that we heard the ocean while we slept!! I will def being staying here again!
Place is very clean and well managed. private walkway to the beach, grilling area with a nice poll. We have enjoyed our stay. Turnkey Reps were very helpful.
We arrived Tuesday later afternoon although I was pleasantly surprised to have gotten an email telling us we could check in as early as noon. That was a nice surprise. The condo was very clean and very spacious for our family of five. We were down the street from the golf cart rental, super close to the beach. The kids enjoyed the swimming pool on the complex. It was a great stay and we would definitely recommend it.
The property manager was very helpful.
The vacation rental was spotless.
I was very happy with the location.
I was more than satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental.
Overall, I recommend this vacation rental.
The condo was very centrally located for our needs. The condo was roomy and was as described on the website site. Our unit had a master bedroom with a king size bed and the second bedroom had 2 queen size beds. This was perfect for our group. Our only complaint is that there were only 2 hangers in each closet and only one wash cloth in each bathroom. There were plenty of hand towels and bath towels. We would stay at this location again.
