La Mirage is located about five miles south of the town of Port Aransas, so it is away from the main, more-crowded beach areas. There's never a big crowd, and a short walk to the north along the beach and you'll mostly have the beach to yourself. La Mirage has two swimming pools, with the larger pool (one of the biggest at area condos) heated during the Winter. See the photos for the courtyard and pool areas.
Our Condo: Master bedroom with king size Tempurpedic and private bathroom. Has sliding glass doors to the balcony,. 2nd bedroom has a double size and a twin bed, also both Tempurpedic, and an attached bathroom.
One our condo's best features is the large and private balcony. It overlooks an expanse of duneland and has a wide view of the Gulf of Mexico. We want to let you know that some work has begun to prepare that area for development, so there may be equipment operating. The land has been undeveloped for a long while, as in the pictures, but now some work has begun. There still are no buildings or people, but there may be some daytime work going on. Otherwise, no one can see you as you enjoy the views. During sunset, the dunes glow, and moonrise over the Gulf is one of our favorite sights from the balcony!
The large living/dining area has glass doors to the balcony, a large flat-screen TV, and a round dining table that seats six. New furniture in 2015. A new sofa and loveseat, new coffee table and two new end tables. Living/dining room also has one twin bed (Tempurpedic) which can also serve as a sofa/daybed. Please note--there is not at this time a sofa-sleeper.
The master bedroom has a small tv; the 2nd bedroom does not have a tv.
The wireless network upgrade is completed and working great by all reports.
Kitchen is fully equipped with range/oven, fridge, dishwasher, coffee maker, toaster, blender, microwave, electric can opener, and a wide variety of cookware, utensils, and dishes. There is a laundry room with full-sized washer and dryer. Usual kitchen supplies, such as dish soap, paper towels, sponges, etc., are provided.
Quickest and best contact is via email, as we check that many times throughout the day 9am - 11pm. Send your questions or inquiries and you'll get a prompt response--max two hours, and quite often within minutes. We are very attentive to email inquiries and questions.
Be sure to look at the notes on the rates page for special deals for longer stays!
We look forward to hearing from you!
We are Austinites, and for years have loved going to the beach in Port Aransas. We were thrilled when we finally bought our condo at La Mirage, and go there as often as we can. We have come to view it as our second home, and strive to make it as comfortable and as inviting as we can. We hope you enjoy it too! Missey and John

We knew we wanted to be in Port Aransas, and after looking around, we felt that La Mirage was a great choice. The beach is very close to the complex, just a few minutes from our front door to the sand. There's a beautiful courtyard filled with palms and flowering shrubs, with two swimming pools, one quite large and heated in cooler months. There are three spas in the courtyard too, which makes winter visits even better!
Our condo is on the north side of the building, which means you see spectacular sunrises every morning, and sometimes a beautiful moonrise as well. There is morning sun on the balcony, but by mid-day it is in the shade, which helps keep the unit cool and gives you a break from the intense Texas sun. The late afternoon sun makes the dune expanse practically glow! We love to sit on the balcony, sometimes for hours, and just admire the view.
Imagine how an incredibly comfortable bed can help you get the most out of your vacation. Whether it's just relaxing for some well-deserved down time, or recharging for another active day at the beach, a Tempurpedic mattress can't be beat. Our guests tell us they love the beds and sleep great during their stay, and for some it's the reason they return to stay in our condo each time they visit Port Aransas.
The condo is beautifully furnished and very comfortable. It is a nice size and can accommodate a family or two couples and kids. The master bedroom is like a private suite. Almost all the supplies you need for a vacation are there. It was great to have a washer and dryer. The complex is gorgeous with beautiful trees and plants. The balcony is a fantastic place to spend time, eat meals, and even sleep. I had a great visit and can't wait to go back.
Very nice. Ordinary but nice.
Our stay was comfortable & the details of the condo are exact. We were very pleased with all the accomodations provided. John was always cordial & prompt with all the emails regarding information. We would absolutely go back! Our family enjoyed our vacation in this part of town!
We enjoyed our stay. Very clean and pleasant. The balcony was great. The owner was very communicative, and even worked it out so that we could check in a little early. Will definitely come back!
We had an overall wonderful experience at this VRBO! First and foremost, the owners were quick to respond and helpful with inquiries. The condo itself was very clean and tidy. I thought that the owners went above and beyond to have laundry detergent and dish soap/dishwasher soap readily available to us. Having a washer/dryer when we traveled to and from the beach was so nice to have! We also enjoyed the view from the deck of the ocean. With two small kids we appreciated that the condo unit and condo building were kid friendly with a splash park, two pools and shaded playground. My kids had a blast and we will no doubt be back! The only complaint that I have is there was a musty smell in the cabinet by the refrigerator.
Port Aransas is a great vacation destination, with many attractions and activities. Our part of the beach is very scenic, with dunes close to the shore. Even in the most crowded season, with a short walk you have the beach largely to yourself.
The palm-tree filled courtyard has two large pools, one heated in winter, and three spas, as well as picnic and bbq facilities.
Nearby attractions include deep sea and bay fishing, golf, dolphin tours, bicyle and beach buggy rentals, birding, kayaking, Texas Aquarium, and the USS Lexington, as well as numerous restaurants featuring local seafood and a wide variety of cuisines.
The best attraction, though, is the closest--the beautiful beach, perfect for running, long walks, or just relaxing to the endless sound of the surf.
