Port Aransas House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, Sleeps 10

La Vista at La Playa is a charming beach house located in the heart of Port Aransas on beautiful Mustang Island. There are wonderful ocean views from the living area, the deck and two of the bedrooms. The subdivisions private boardwalk is next to the house and it's just 100 steps to the beach.

The living and dining areas are open and spacious, and the kitchen will be a joy for your cook. The master bedroom and bath can be closed off from all of the action and become your private retreat. In the living room there is a big screen TV with satellite, an iPod dock, a large video library and you can even hook up your computer for NetFlix. There is a TV and DVDs in each of the bedrooms. The deck has plenty of room for everyone to enjoy the rolling dunes, the awesome ocean views, sunbathing, or just stargazing.

Under the house, there is parking for four vehicles. There's a shaded deck with a large table and bar for entertaining, escaping the heat and enjoying the cool ocean breezes. There is also an outdoor hot shower for rinsing off after your beach excursions.

Why Michelle Fly chose Port Aransas

We viewed tons of houses in the Port Aransas area, but even though some of the houses were newer, or fancier, none of them had appeal of this quaint, 'beachy' feeling house. We simply fell in love with it!

  • 5 of 5

We made so many memories here! As grandparents of two five year olds and two 2 years olds (all girls btw)...we had been yearning to see our granddaughters experience playing on the beach. It was the perfect house and the perfect beach with our private boardwalk that made our wishes come true! We played so hard every day, went shopping, went out to eat once, but basked in the ambiance of this lovely home....cooked many great meals and sat around the nice dining room table - played dominoes too!

Every night we sat on the back deck star gazing with our family and playing with our princesses until fairy dust came over them and we tucked them safely & cozily in their beds. Then back to that awesome deck for adult beverages & laughing and dancing!

I definitely want to return... It felt like home!

Great house, wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

This was our first family vacation in over 20 years. We had the best time ever. The house was well laid out and the grandkids had plenty of room to play. The beds were comfortable, the kitchen had everything you needed and the deck was a great place to drink your coffee in the morning or have a night cap at night. We are hoping to make this a yearly thing and I hope we can get the same house. The owners made sure we had everything we needed and did a beautiful job of decorating the house. It felt like home the minute we walked in. The location was perfect to all the stores, shops and restaurants. And what we liked best was the easy access to the beach. It was definitely a home away from home. You will not be disappointed.

Still impressed

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay, this time with one more guest (total of 5 adults and 3 kids). Everything works. Great location. We needed some more washcloths, and Michelle was able to come over promptly and help us out. We had a great time!

Great home for a family vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our family vacation at this beach house! The house had plenty of room and the layout of the house was great. We really liked being so close to the beach and also close to many great restaurants. We also appreciated being able to bring our dogs with us on our vacation. The outdoor shower, balconies and downstairs deck areas were also wonderful features of the property. Having a washer and dryer to use was also great. We loved our stay at this house and hope to be back soon!!

Solid Outing Once Again

  • 5 of 5

Each year, our company, Limitless Landscaping, takes a group of 10 guys down to the coast for a fishing trip. This was our second year in this house and we love it. The area under the home is perfect for socializing and you cannot beat the walk to the beach. The owners are easy to reach, if necessary, and we have never had a problem with our stay. Highly recommend for larger groups.

Home away from home..::

  • 5 of 5

My family and I could not have been more impressed with the property the moment we walked in the door - a great floor plan, plenty of natural light through the many widows, and incredible breezes less than 200 yards from the water. The house was also perfectly stocked with everything needed for a long weekend, or week+ getaway. I personally was happy to have lots of comfy seating and plenty of TV options for post-kiddo-bedtime ;). Lastly, there was a very thoughtful "guide folder" with menus and times for tons of local eateries and coffee joints on the island - thank you for that!!! We were able to comfortably accomodate 3 adults and 2 small children for fours days of R&R and we CANNOT wait to stay for a family reunion later this summer. Thanks again for a great stay.
