Perfect beach vacation rental!

  • 5 of 5

We have rented several homes in Port Aransas over the years. As a family, we have always rented homes or condos in Cinnamon Shores (perhaps because that is all I knew). The homes over there are absolutely beautiful (just like this one), but I always ended up cooking with only 1 cookie sheet or having access to only 7 dinner plates, and other oddities. That becomes frustrating when you are spending $$$ for 3 nights with people to feed.

This home, Ship Ahoy! is not JUST a beautiful home with lovely amenities, Ship Ahoy is well cared for, perfectly clean (!) and everything was in working order.

The owners have lovingly stocked the home with thoughtful things like soft throw blankets on the sofas, board games, dish washing soap, laundry pods, etc.

My husband, who had to run to the store about 3 times a day the first few days said he loved how close this home was to town (but thankfully not smack dab in the middle) and he also loved how close the home was to the beach!

I’m not sure I really want everyone else in the world knowing about my new favorite place in Port A., but I want to express my gratitude to the owners for opening their home to rent.

A Beautiful Home just steps from the beach!

  • 5 of 5

We were looking to escape the cold in the North for Thanksgiving with family and we chose Ship Ahoy! in Port Aransas and we are SO happy we did. We were a bit concerned about the area after the storm but this home was untouched and perfect in every way. The property is exactly as pictured and described. Perfectly clean and very well maintained with beautiful furniture, high end appliances, new bedding, nice linens, etc. We made Thanksgiving dinner there and the kitchen was well stocked to meet our needs. Our family enjoyed our time on both patios looking out at the Gulf and sitting in the sunshine. The master suite was perfect for us and we loved the "spa" bathroom. Our kids loved the bunk bed room and the downstairs suite was perfect for the grandparents. The home is spacious enough so that even a large group does not feel cramped and the top floor room is so nice for the kids to hang out. We enjoyed take out food in the area and shopped at the local shops but mostly enjoyed our time on the beach which is a very short walk from the home. A wonderful stay for our group and we would definitely recommend it and return ourselves. The owners were a pleasure to work with and very accommodating and helpful.

Perfect Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful house this is!! My husband and I have 4 adult children (3 with spouses) and a slew of grandkids! This house exceeded our every expectation and need. It is set up beautifully with all the necessary "extras" to make your vacation just perfect! The decor is beautiful and the layout is perfect for a large family. A lovely and safe section of the beach is within walking distance so we had everything we needed!

Great place to stay for family of ten

  • 5 of 5

Ship Ahoy beach house is a beautifully decorated three story beach house that is well equipped for a family of ten. The kids loved staying in the bunk room. Built in bunk beds. Each floor had a balcony with nice table and chairs. The sitting area on the third floor was a great area to get away for some quite time. The owner stayed in touch during our stay to insure we had arrived and everything was ok. She even recommended a place for kids to go have some fun. Pool right across the street was great for kids. Beach was about 100 yards from house. Great view of gulf from third floor balcony. Quite neighbors in a well maintained neighborhood. Appliances we top quality. Gas oven/cook top. Plenty of dishes, pots and pans. Can't go wrong choosing this house for your stay at Port Aransas.
