Overview

Leeward Sands House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, Sleeps 14

Cuckoo's Nest: LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION!!! Just off of Cutoff Road (Hwy 361) near the ferry, public boat launch, Waterfront Restaurants and the Marina. There is plenty of car parking and room for your boat too.

Recent improvements for 2016 include a Half Bath with double sink dressing area in the Bunk Room, outdoor bathroom upgraded to a full bath with Hot and Cold Water Shower and a Sink, an Outdoor Kitchen with Hot and Cold water Sink and refrigerator near the pool and Cabana, an on demand gas water heater has been added so you never run out of hot water, and the Golf Cart has been upgraded to a 2016 Six Passenger Ez-Go with Bluetooth Stereo System.

Bathroom arrangement is 2 bathrooms upstairs, half bathroom downstairs (double sinks, toilet, no shower), full OUTDOOR bathroom with hot and cold water shower.

It’s the perfect place for family and kids, several couples on a getaway week end, a group of fishermen setting off to fish the flats or the Gulf, Bird Watching or ladies get away. It is all about the OUTDOORS where you can relax by the pool, cook outside with ease and enjoy the great outdoors.

If you are looking for a house with plenty of beds for resting under the AC during the day and sleeping at night with a great outdoor setup then this is it. If you are looking for a sprawling house so everyone can stay inside and play video games and watch TV this is not it.

Outside you have a private pool with a shallow section for small children or tanning, Cool Cabana with ceiling fans, picnic tables and chairs. On the carport patio there is an outdoor Margarita Bar, with picnic tables for relaxing in the shade and an outdoor bathroom with shower.

Upstairs there are two bedrooms with queen beds and two baths plus a queen sleeper sofa if you need it. There are Smart TV’s in each bedroom as well as the living room. There is a fully equipped kitchen for your enjoyment, and patio furniture on the shady deck for relaxing.

Downstairs, separate from the main living area, is the “Bunk” room which sleeps ten and it’s equipped with a Smart TV, Refrigerator, and a Half Bath. This room is completely separate from the main house, you have to go outside to go from the bunk room to the upstairs living area. There are two double\double bunks and a single \ single bunk, and dressing area with double sinks and toilet. There is not a downstairs shower in the bedroom. The bathroom is located outside of the bunk room. The outdoor bathroom with shower is just off the carport and is handy for the bunk room guests as well those using the pool and outdoor facilities.

The views here are fantastic, the upper deck overlooks The Port Aransas Nature Preserve aka Charlie’s Pasture and the ship channel. This is a great place for BIRD WATCHING, bird watchers are always stopping on the street beside Cuckoo’s nest to watch the birds and take pictures. There is a much better view from our upstairs deck. It is also really interesting to watch the ships in the channel going to and from Corpus Christi. They appear to be floating across the land!

The Leonabelle Turnbull Birding Center is just an easy walk down the street where you will see all types of birds as well as resident Alligators. For the kids it is just a short walk to the community pool and awesome SKATE PARK. This property is located right in town near all of the shopping, activities and restaurants.

There is a BRAND NEW 6 passenger custom golf cart available for your use to go to the beach, stores and restaurants or just cruise around and see the sites. Come visit, it’s a great place to make memories.

*The golf cart is included in the rental price and is valued at $75 per day for short term rentals and $400 per month for long term rentals. In the event that the golf cart becomes inoperable during your stay and you are not at fault then a credit will be given on the rental rate of $75 per day for short term renters or prorated at $400 per month for long term renters. A replacement cart will not be provided.

Reviewer Comments:

Overall the house fit all our needs. The AC was cold and the pool was clean. There was WiFi and TV. All cookware was available along with plenty of clean linens. Some things that needed attention were the out of control amount of roaches. I'm assuming the wet weather didn't help. Also the mosquito's were terrible but again you can't control mother nature. The bunk house toilet was about to come off the floor. It was sketchy to use and the lights didn't work in the bathroom. The pull out coach was way to uncomfortable for anyone to sleep on so this was an issue. The coaches need to be replaced. They are old and dirty. Also the pillows were a plastic lined casing so they crackle anytime you moved. Very annoying. Other than these minor things the house was nice.

We enjoyed this place very much, especially the pool & adjacent grill. The downstairs bunk room had a strange smell.

Perfect house

  • 5 of 5

This is a great vacation location. We stayed there with the family to celebrate our 50th Anniversary, Thurs Aug 4/Monday Aug 8. It was absolutely perfect, especially the private pool and the golf cart.

If I could make one suggestion it would be floor/table lamps near the couches and beds. Highly recommend the adorable house.

Reviewer Comments:

Everything in the rental was great! But what made it better was the swimming pool & golf cart. I would recommend this rental for people wanting to be close to the beach or just staying in the pool.I also liked the refrigerator outside close to the pool. To keep my drinks cold!!

Reviewer Comments:

My overall experience was good...however there were a couple of things that made me give it know 3 stars. The first thing is that it is not CLEAR on the pictures or description of the property that the "bunk toom" is COMPLETELY SEPARATE from the rest of the house. You can only access it if you go outside and down stairs. Also I would have liked the description to have let us know that the ONLY FULL BATH for the that is INDOORS OS UPSTAIRS... The ONLY second full bath is OUTSIDE, So anyone staying I the "bunk room" has to go upstairs in thee house to shower or go outside. Another issue is the PLASTIC PILLOWS!! They were HORRIBLE AND UNCOMFORTABLE! No pillow case would stay on and you would wake up with your face on crunchy plastic... I would think k at the price that you pay a night you could at least get comfortable pillows. There was also no extra linens for the pull out couch or if you just wanted extra coverage.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to post your review. We greatly appreciate your feedback and take what you say into consideration. The bunk room is advertised as being separate from the house. You access the bunk room from outside below the home. This is a great room for a separate family or older kids. The owner has added a full bathroom downstairs in the bunk room. There is now two full bathrooms inside and one shower outside. The pillows have been upgraded thanks to your feedback. The linens are located in the closet. If you ever need anything extra please don't hesitate to call our office and we will gladly accommodate you as best we can. Thank you!

Reviewer Comments:

Our famliy came in from different states to throw our mother a suprise party. This house worked out perfectly. We had seven 'kids' ranging in ages of 6-22 and they loved their private Bunk House. This kept the majority out of the main house. The backyard was perfectly appointed (if only we didn't have gail force winds the day of the party!). We did experience loss in hot water, but once we had time to contact the manager, the issue was resolved. My other areas of concern was there so many light switches and we didn't know what went where (I'd suggest labling the switches); the kitchen cabinets need bumpers installed, as they make such loud noises when closing; and swapping out the surfboard table (everyone kept bumping into the sharp end).

Map

Island living at its finest. Everything in Port Aransas is within a few mile radius and a golf cart is provided with this rental home for driving to and fro from the beach or restaurants and shops. Bird Watching and deep sea fishing are rated one of the top in the nation. This sleepy fishing village has beautiful drive on beaches, fishing piers, live community theater and so much more for a fun filled vacation.
