Overview

About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, Sleeps 8

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.

UPSTAIRS Bathroom arrangement is 2 bathrooms, one with a tub and the other with a shower. DOWNSTAIRS BATHROOM ARRANGEMENT is half bathroom downstairs inside the Bunk Room (double sinks, toilet, NO shower), there is a full OUTDOOR bathroom with hot and cold water shower just outside the Bunk Room. Cuckoo’s Nest has an ON-DEMAND GAS HOT WATER SYTEM so you never run out of hot water.

UPSTAIRS Bedroom arrangements are Two Private Rooms with Queen Beds in each. DOWNSTAIRS BUNKROOM has six beds arranged as three bunk beds, 4 Double Bunks and 2 Single Bunks. The Bunk Room is SEPARATE FROM THE UPSTAIRS, you must use the OUTSIDE STAIRS to go from the Bunk Room to the Upstairs Rooms. The Bunk Room has its own Smart TV, and small refrigerator.

The Living Area is a combination Living Room\ Dining Area \ Kitchen with vaulted ceiling. The Kitchen has everything you need for cooking and Grilling on the Webber Gas Grill.

There are Smart TV’s in each bedroom as well as the living room and the downstairs “Bunk room”. High Speed WIFI Internet is available.

Outside you have a PRIVATE POOL with a shallow section for small children or tanning, Cool Cabana with ceiling fans, picnic tables and chairs, WEBBER GAS GRILL, AND OUTDOOR KITCHEN, with hot and cold water sink and REFRIGERATOR. On the carport patio there is an outdoor Margarita Bar, with picnic tables for relaxing in the shade and an outdoor bathroom with 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.

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, the Leonabelle Turnbull Birding Center is just an easy walk down the street, 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! For the kids, it is just a short walk to the community pool and awesome SKATE PARK.

Reviewer Comments:

Silver Sands, is AWESOME! This house was fine for a 2 night stay but we did have a "bug" issue the few days we were there. The Pool is awesome and layout of home is great, especially with a big family. The only issue we had was the outdoor bathroom door, slams really hard and we had a family member cut their heel very badly due to the exposed nails in the wood. (This is something I would address ASAP, it is not noticeable when looking at the door.) We would return, but we do know to bring more of our own Kitchen supplies next time, this home is not fully stocked. Overall decent stay!

Reviewer Comments:

This house was perfect for our group of 10 adults and our fur babies. The upstairs was great for the couples with two bedrooms, a pull out couch and two full baths. Having the down stairs separate made the house seem even bigger and provided everyone with plenty of privacy. Plus the bunk room was perfect for the singles in our group. The Outhouse was very useful when we were all hanging out by the pool. However, be careful because there are nails sticking out of the bottom of the Outhouse door. (One of guest cut their foot pretty bad the day we got there) The full sized fridge and the fans under the cabana in the backyard were a life saver when we’re grilling out. The private pool and the 6 person buggy defiantly put this house over the top! Because I think it’s worth mentioning, the A/C worked GREAT both upstairs and downstairs! We also really liked the location of this house. We’ve stayed closer to the beach in the past but we really enjoyed being tucked away in this quite little neighborhood with not much through traffic. Also, Silver Sands was awesome! During our stay they came by and cleaned our pool twice and even did the yard. For some reason we were skipped on trash day and a very nice man came by and picked up the extra for us! I would recommend this house and Silver Sands to anyone and everyone!

We love the Pool and the outdoor kitchen. We like the outdoor shower. Upstairs was fine. A little small for our family. Down stairs bunk room was ok. There was a roach problem. We had a fun weekend. This is my third year to use Silver Sand Rental. I really like Silver Sand Rentals. They are so friendly and easy to work with.

Reviewer Comments:

Our family stayed at this beautiful house for the 2017 Sandfest. We had 10 people and the house had plenty of room and was very comfortable. After spending time at the beach, it was very nice to come back to the pool and relax. The refrigerator and grill were very handy. The 'hidden' bathroom under the stairs was nice to be able to rinse the sand off and not bring it into the house. The golf cart was a great bonus, we spent several nights riding the golf cart through the streets of Port A and always used when going to the beach. We got the best parking spots for the Sandfest. We had an amazing stay at this house and are looking forward to returning for the 2018 Sandfest. The people at Silver Sands were more than accommodating and very pleasant. On Sunday we had a windstorm and ended up getting leaves and what-not in the pool. I left a voicemail for Silver Sands on Sunday night and they had someone come and clean the pool on Monday. Awesome customer service! I can't say enough about the wonderful time we had. If I had one thing negative to say, the pillows could be upgraded, but we ended up bringing our own anyway, so it was no big deal for us. Thank you so much for letting stay at this amazing house and creating wonderful family vacation memories.

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.
