This home has two large balconies facing the beach and many large picture windows that make it easy to sit back, relax, and enjoy the ocean views.

About Lauri Randall

- We have enjoyed bringing our kids to Port Aransas since the early 1990s. We've created countless memories with family and friends and know that you will do so as well. We are so pleased that you are considering our beach home as the backdrop for your time in Port Aransas and know that it will add both fun and relaxation to your trip.

Lauri Randall purchased this house in 2014

Why Lauri Randall chose Texas Gulf Coast

We chose this beach front property because of its views and unique proximity to both the beach and downtown Port Aransas. We love to be able to walk back and forth from the beach to the house throughout the day and this property is so close to the beach that you can walk to the house to grab a drink or a sandwich and be back to the beach before your next turn in horseshoes. After a day at the beach, you can enjoy sunset views over the ocean from the decks or go into town for a delicious seafood dinner or some shopping. From this house, there is no need to fight traffic because you are already in town. It makes for a relaxing, hassle free vacation which is exactly what vacation should be.

What makes this house unique

Our favorite part of this house is its beachfront views, its boardwalk, and its balconies. With a boardwalk that comes directly to the house, two large balconies, and large picture windows, this house has views and beach access that are second to none. You can sit on any one of the decks and have a perfect view of the beach and enjoy the ocean breeze and the sound of the waves. We also love the second living area where the kids can watch a movie or enjoy a game of shuffleboard or foosball in their very own game room. The large kitchen with the commercial grade 6 burner range top and double oven makes cooking for a large group a breeze.

Great Place to Celebrate our 50th Anniversary

  • 5 of 5

September 8-11, 2016

We had a wonderful time celebrating our 50th Anniversary with our family...four generations! Everyone, from age 7 to 89, had so much fun. The beach house is beautiful, spacious and very clean. It was nice that each of the four families had their own space with king beds and the five grandkids loved their bunk beds. They especially liked playing shuffleboard and foosball downstairs. The elevator was perfect for my mother to be able navigate the house. Also we rented a six passenger golf cart which was great on the beach and going into town.

The beach was beautiful and very clean. We built a fire on the beach at night and made s'mores...Yum!!! Lauri told us about catching sand crabs at night and the kids loved chasing them with flashlights. Also she told us how to catch "ghost shrimp." The kids had a blast!

Lauri was great to give us so much information and recommendations. Also she responded very quickly whenever I had a question or need.

I would highly recommend "Beauty and the Beach."

The best of all beach houses!

  • 5 of 5

This home surpassed all our expectations! It was perfect for our large family of 16. The convenience of having the easy beach access was most appreciated. The home was beautifully decorated and well suited to all our needs. Having a large bathroom for each bedroom was the best! Everyone loved being in such a lovely home. We have been vacationing for 17 years and this was the best house of all.
