About the property

Two story House, 4 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, fully stocked kitchen, pool (Sleeps 10)

Our place is 100% self-managed. Talk directly with the owners!

We invite you to relax, refresh and revive at our brand new beautiful beach vacation home that is close to everything Port Aransas, Texas has to offer. This coastal rental has 4 bedrooms, a welcoming open kitchen/dining/living area, 2.5 bathrooms, and best of all - a screened-in patio that looks right out onto the sparkling new pool. With stained concrete floors, white-washed pine walls and amber pine ceilings – this house is the classic coastal home you’ve been searching for!

Located on the corner of Avenue C and 10th street, this home is within an easy 5 block walk through quiet residential streets to the beach. It’s also within easy walking distance to great restaurants and bars on Beach Street, the IGA Grocery Store, and Island Café on Main Street.

Rented a house in Port A before? Then you know most houses here only have a 2-car driveway. Finding parking for that 3rd or 4th car can be a nightmare (think tickets and/or towing). Not for us! We easily have space for 4 in our extra-wide driveway. And you can park an additional car in garage if you had to. Have a boat? No problem! We've got 32 feet of driveway space to fit most bay boats. Overnight boat parking OK here. Additional overflow parking available across the street in the summer time.

Is tennis your thing? Enjoy table tennis with the ping pong table setup right in our garage. Or if you prefer a full court experience, the high school tennis courts are free and open to the public. And once again, just a block or two from our place!

Rent a fun golf cart or bike and cruise around the island in style! Oh, and park it in our garage for safe keeping. Surf and sun, shopping, fishing and eating – it’s all just around the corner. Tired of the sand and salt, rinse off in the refreshing outdoor shower and then cannon ball into the pool. Still not cooled off? Pull your lounge chair into the shallow 'beach' area of the pool and grab a refreshment. You'll be better in no time!

This is an ideal house for one large family, or two families to split.

The LIVING room is fully furnished with:

• Queen sized sleeper sofa

• Flat Screen TV & DVD player

About Brent Nations

My wife and I live in Austin TX and have two beautiful girls. We love going to the beach!

Brent Nations purchased this house in 2011

Why Brent Nations chose Texas Gulf Coast

I've been going to Port Aransas since I was a kid. We've carried on this tradition through college and now with kids. Our dream of owning a beach house was finally realized in 2011 after much searching (and much saving)!

What makes this house unique

Our house is perfect for two families to split (or one big family with friends). With a stand alone home, you'll have a nice quiet house without those noisy neighbors. And after a long hot fun day at the beach, you'll be able to relax in the shade and swim in the cool refreshing pool steps from the back patio.

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This is the 2nd year we have rented a property from this owner and we absolutely love it. It is centrally located, very clean and the pool is a great touch. The house has everything you could need, the kitchen is fully stocked. The screened in porch was a great place to relax after a great day at the beach.

We had a great week and we will be back!!!!!

Perfect beach getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Brent was great at responding to us as this was kind of a last minute trip. It was so easy to deal with him concerning entry and we found everything clean and in order when we arrived. The place was well decorated and had everything we needed. The book they put together was very helpful as well. We would definitely stay here the next time we're in Port A if its available. Thanks Brent!

This home is Coastal Chic w/o being cutesy and what a location! Plenty of room for 5 adults and 4 kids, who spent most of their time in the pool; the palapa offers respite from the sun and enjoyed lunch there, followed by more pool!

Back to the house: the kitchen has everything needed for a stay and the washer/dryer was a lifesaver. Comfy beds, plenty of natural light, ping pong table a plus, screened porch... This place has it all for a relaxing getaway!
