Port Aransas Condo Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 6

Our 2BR/2BA newly renovated, condo is the perfect Port Aransas beach retreat. The main floor of our condo has an open floor plan with a combined kitchen, family room and dining room. Our living area has a flat screen TV, cable and Wi-Fi for guests’ entertainment. The well-equipped kitchen has everything you require to prepare a family style meal or just snacks for the beach. From our windows you have unobstructed views of the Gulf of Mexico! We have two bedrooms and two full baths: the master bedroom has a deluxe king bed, flat screen TV, and balcony with ocean and pool views and the guest bedroom has two comfortable queen beds, a flat screen TV and shared bathroom with the living area. When it is time for your beach retreat our beautiful island condo will not disappoint!

We also own a smaller studio condo at Island Retreat for extra guests!

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!

Convenient and clean

  • 5 of 5

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.

Reviewer Comments:

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.

Owner's Response: Thanks Peggy! We're glad you enjoyed your stay with us. We apologize about the lack or hangers and wash cloths. Guests can call us 24/7 for any needs that may arise during their stay. Towels, linens, paper products, repairs, etc. You were great guests and we look forward to hearing from you again soon! -The TurnKey VR Team

Reviewer Comments:

To start, I wish VRBO would let me upload the pictures I took of this place to show the problems that are talked about in this review. Spending the holidays in Port Aransas is important for my family and I. Looking for a great place to stay is also important. Our normal rental was occupied so we had to look elsewhere and found this place by TurnKey Rentals. The pictures looked great, the online staff was helpful and pleasant, but that is where the "stunning" part of their listing ended. When we walked into the room, it had a smell that we just couldn't place. Not the normal smell of ocean surroundings. Initial walk through looked ok, but then we started noticing things. For a place advertised as newly renovated, I am not quite sure what they did aside from put on new comforters on the beds. There is rust and mold all over the place in the bathrooms and kitchen areas. Ceiling vents had dust and mold on them that I had to clean off before I dared turn on the fans. Moldy sandwiches left in the fridge. Just an over all feeling of a run down not cared for home. Further inspection of their great scenic views were way less than desirable. The only way to get that stunning view on the balcony was to sit on the very far edge and look around a pole. The pictures on the net show a line of condos with great views. They don't show this actual condo which is on a 90 degree angle facing away from the water. My kids tried to plug in their cell phones and cameras to take pictures of our vacation, only to find out that every single socket on one side of the house does not work. We tried multiple outlets and all had the same result. Luckily the vacation we planned had very little time in the condo itself or it would have been very depressing. For the price paid and the false advertisements, all I can say is I hope these other reviews read on here are from other properties by this company and not the actual one we stayed at.

Owner's Response: Hi Craig, Thank you for this feedback. We thank you for bringing these issues to our attention and are investigating to see how / why the processes that we have in place may have broken down. Our homes are vigorously inspected between each stay and we take photos each time of all areas and appliances so things like sandwiches left behind should be impossible for our housekeepers to miss. We are investigating this matter so thank you again for letting us know. Occasionally minor maintenance items do arise between stays - even in the nicest of homes - such as the breaker issue that you mentioned (which was a very easy fix). What is most concerning is that although we do not want to intrude on people's vacations, we do send our guests multiple touch points during the reservation, including a live housekeeping rating email, as well as a check-in text to the mobile number on file. Our records do not show any attempt at contacting us until after your group had departed. One of the main reasons that folks seem to love working with TurnKey is because we offer 24 hour support, 7 days a week. We have a toll free number that is constantly monitored by our skilled agents, trained to help our guests in any situation. Had we known that anything was not to your satisfaction, we could have been over to see you in minutes, as our office is just down the street in Port Aransas. We are very sorry if this was not made clear to you. To answer your question about reviews, yes, the reviews listed under this home on VRBO are reviews left by previous guests of this home - we agree than anything otherwise would be misleading, unethical and a direct violation against VRBO's review guidelines. In fact, VRBO makes it impossible for these for these reviews to come from anyone other than folks who have stayed in this exact home. We hope this helps and again, are disappointed that this occurred. Feel free to contact us directly if you would like to speak further. -The TurnKey VR Team

Reviewer Comments:

We will surely be back to Port Aransas (this was our 3rd year in a row) but to this same condo? Unlikely. The place was not cleaned up well enough: there was a peculiar smell, the floor was not well swept and the bathrooms were still dirty from the last guests. It looked like the objective of the owner was to keep the place cheap, so the furniture is VERY cheap. There weren't nearly enough rugs on that place so we kept tracking dirt everywhere. The living room rug could use an upgrade... The fact that there were no washer and dryer was an issue for us. The property washer and dryer are very expensive! We liked the location though, so we would likely look for another apartment on Island Retreat, but number 32... ? Maybe not. Unless we learn that some upgrades have been made WITH THE GUESTS COMFORT IN MIND. Oh, and it rained, and there was a leak on the kitchen window. We were lucky it was Friday night and we were living Saturday and it only rained for a day.
