Texas Gulf Coast House Rental Photos and Description

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

Reserve your summer vacation and relax. The best dates fill up early so don't delay.

Relax, Refresh and Revive at our beautiful, fun, and family-friendly beach house

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

• Assortment of DVDs, books and games to make your day that much more fun!

The KITCHEN is well equipped with everything you need to cook up a great meal during the day or night:

• Calphalon® cookware

• coastal dishes & flatware

• 12-cup coffee maker

• blender

• toaster

• large stock pot for shrimp boils

• assorted utensils, cookie sheets, cutting boards, etc

The screened-in PORCH comfortably seats 6, and provides a fabulous place to enjoy your coffee in the morning or your margarita at night! The porch overlooks the common area with pool, BBQ pits, and washers game to relax and rejuvenate.

All four BEDROOMS are upstairs and can easily sleep 8 with two king beds, one queen bed, and a bunk room (full-over-full bunk bed) specifically designed to be a fun space to sleep, or hang out and watch a movie at the end of a fun day.

• All bedrooms are equipped with 400-thread count sheets, cozy quilts, and flat screen cable TVs. (TV/DVD Combo in the bunk room!)

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.

The rental was everything we expected and more. A perfect beach rental.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the open concept. The kitchen was perfect for socializing while cooking. The bedrooms were convenient, clean, comfortable and tastefully decorated. Great restaurants were plentiful and close. It was located in a nice quiet neighborhood. The landlord answered any questions and was very easy to work with.

We would recommend this rental to everyone.

Can't Imagine Port Aransas Vacation in any other Beach House

  • 5 of 5

First, these property owners are so friendly and responsive. I am a frequent VRBO user and have never had as much pre-trip planning support. The house is even better in person than it looks in the pictures. Everything is like new and professionally decorated. The mattresses are premium. Each of the four bedrooms has its own flat screen with Dish access. There was also a very large screen in the living room-perfect for Cowboy's game viewing. We had some meals on the screened in back porch and we really enjoyed the pool which is right out the back door. The whole complex was very quiet and made for a delightful September beach trip experience. We will be back!

Something for everyone

  • 4 of 5

We love Port A and visit 3 times a year at least. This was by far one of our favorite trips. The house is very homey and family friendly. The layout is wonderful and they have just about everything you need on hand.

The property is perfectly located to everything. The pool is beautiful and offers a nice break after the beach. We did all our meals and hanging out at he house when we weren't on the beach.

We'd stay here again!
