About The Owner

Our family has been visiting Port Aransas for over 10 years and fallen in love with the area beaches, bays, and ocean. We live in Central Austin and find this a wonderful retreat from city life.

The Owner purchased this house in 2014

Why The Owner chose Texas Gulf Coast

We enjoy fishing, kayaking, and beachcombing; the location is suitable for both bay and deep sea fishing

What makes this house unique

Location is close to all amenities Port Aransas has to offer--short walk to the beach on the private boardwalk and Sand Point Community Pool directly across the street!

Best Stay Ever in Port A!!!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this house was absolutely perfect. We had three families with young children and there was plenty of room and privacy for everyone with a master bedroom on each floor (with private bath), an awesome kids bunkroom on the first floor and pull out couch on the third floor. We never felt on top of each other. The coastal furnishings are gorgeous and you can tell how much work the owners put into every detail. The kitchen was fully stocked with everything you could possibly need, which was a big plus since we ate all of our meals at the house. As well, there was plenty of room for everyone to share a meal together at the oversized dining table. Another big plus were the two washers and dryers on the first floor. Nice to be able to clean your suits and towels each day before another day at the beach. And, with the amount of people we had, it was great to have two washers going at once. The deck space on the second and third floor are incredible for taking in the sounds and smells of the ocean - you can see the ocean from the third floor! It is a short walk to the beach and close to town without being too close to the hustle and bustle. The pool is conveniently located right across from the house, which was great for kids. If you're wanting to do a quiet couples weekend, you don't have to worry about the pool noise because it closes at 10pm and they follow that strictly. I think every single house in the neighborhood was rented out the week we were there and we never felt like it was too noisy or overcrowded. There is plenty of parking at the house and additional parking right in front. We can't say enough about how perfect this rental house is - we are already planning our stay for next summer! And lastly, the owners are a pleasure to work with!

Great time on the coast!

  • 5 of 5

The Ship Ahoy rental has everything you need for a relaxing stay on the Port Aransas coast. The furnishings are excellent, beds are comfortable and with two living areas and a good sized kitchen/breakfast area there is plenty of space for extended families. We comfortably slept three couples and two grandchildren during our stay. The Cinnamon Shores pool is conveniently located right across the street and the beach is a short walk down the street and over the dunes boardwalk. Beach, golf nearby, fishing, pool and adequate restaurants - what's not to like about this?

Owner's Response: We are delighted Ship Ahoy! worked for you and your family. The floor plan and overall layout was designed to accommodate families such as yours! We hope you will visit again. By the way, it's the SandPoint pool that is directly across the street from our home, and it's nice and convenient to dip into after a day at the beach. Enjoy your summer!

Amazing Beach House

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous beach house steps from the beach. Every inch of this 4 bedroom home is right out of a magazine. Excellently appointed with designer pieces and furniture. Beach chic touches everywhere and a well designed floor plan. Large entertaining areas inside and outside the house. We rented three homes in the area for a family reunion and the other guests were very envious of those who were able to stay in Ship Ahoy! It is just darling! The photos do not do the property justice. Excellent layout/design of the impressive home and kitchen. Absolutely fabulous entertaining areas, bedrooms, and expansive baths. Highly recommend this property and Patti, the owner was very personable and gracious. Incredible beach chic home! We will be back!

Ship Ahoy !!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We were there for my daughters graduation from A&M Corpus Christi - my older son and his wife came from Baltimore - my daughter and her husband came from New York - the house was so beautiful and comfortable - we had so much fun just cooking and hanging out at the house - having drinks on the balconies - the 2 living areas were so comfortable - the kitchen was completely stocked with everything you needed for cooking!! It was great that the main bedrooms all had king sized beds. Everyone had their own beautiful bathrooms - it was perfect - would highly recommend !!
