Port Aransas House Rental Photos and Description

Each house is 2 bedroom/ sleeps 8 ONE BLOCK FROM THE BEACH!

These are adorable coastal cottages an easy 1one block from the beach or a quick 2 to 3 minute drive to most any place in Port A. While Hana House is very tropical named for a house in Maui, Surf Shack has a very colorful and beachy feel. The houses are located next door to each other, adjoined by a deck. You have the option of renting either house alone, or for a larger group take both together! Our attention to detail will make your visit one that you will want to repeat again and again.

These houses have a yard with a picnic table and grill and face a main beach road ONE BLOCK FROM THE BEACH! They have the constant sound of the ocean, and are located on the free trolley route.

In Hana house, there is one bedroom with queen-size bed AND a futon, bedroom two also has a queen-size bed, both complete with tropical Hillfiger bedding. A fully-equipped kitchen and a cute breakfast bar connects to the livingroom with a futon for extra sleeping.

You'll have a covered porch or yard for relaxing.

In Surf Shack, there are two bedrooms with a queen bed in each. A sofa sleeper and futon in in the living room provide additional sleeping. Surf Shack also has a fully equipped kitchen, bathroom with a walk-in shower. Relax in the yard or wrap around deck.

For those interested in a pool, the community pool is highly recommended - very clean and safe! It is a great place for adults and very young children with a 'sloped beach entry' and fun water features.

Why Phyllis Winn chose Texas Gulf Coast

We chose Port Aransas because my family had a house there when I was a kid. Summers were always wonderful for kids and now that we're adults..we find it wonderful for us adults also!

What makes this house unique

I love sitting on the porch or deck and listening to the ocean. The cottages are within an easy walk to the beach or 2 to 3 minute drive to most any place in Port A.


Wonderful! 4.8/5 -

A Comfy Beach Cottage With an Awesome Deck!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I along with another husband and wife pair stayed here for two nights. The place is clean and cutely decorated, the beds are super comfy, and it is a brief walk to the beach. There is a charcoal grill on site, and a well-stocked kitchen. If you are big cooks like us, though, I recommend that you bring a chef's knife from home as the knives provided are more paring knives and not particularly sharp.

There is only one bathroom, but this didn't pose a problem at all. There is plenty of space for four adults to live and lounge comfortably, and that deck is awesome.

Phyllis was very responsive and definitely cares that her guests are enjoying their stay. We would definitely stay here again, ideally renting both adjacent houses for a large group.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your kind review! We have recently replaced the beds in both cottages. I love them and think they are super comfy. I always appreciate feed back and will work on the knife situation. : ) Hope to have you again soon. Phyllis

Hana House & Surf Shack best place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This was our fist family trip with my three children and my grandchildren, the Hana House and Surf Shack beach was the best place to stay, all the amenties you could need for the entire weekend was supplied for you, a few minors things but that is ok we managed, like Wifi we were not able to connect, refigerators on both side not cooling to good. I do have a suggestion the TV in Surf Shack beach maybe hang the TV on a TV rack or a shelf, due to the cabinet blocking the AC vent once we moved that it cooled the room. My family and I loved the place and would love to book it for next year. Great summer vacation house for a family everyone was able to sleep with plenty of room. The beach was just a walk away or even just a short drive depending on what you were taking with you to the beach. Again we all had a blast and will return. Thank you Phyllis Winn for having such a nice place for famlies like us.

Owner's Response: Thank you Maria for your review. The pass word for wifi was recently changed but not posted on the fridge and that is why you couldn't use it. Always call me if there is a problem so I can help. I agree with your idea of the TV on the wall and we'll be doing that this week. Just let me know when you'd like to book your next trip, we'd love to have you and your family again. Phylls

Quaint location close to the beach

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd stay at this house located a few blocks off the beach. A short walk straight out the front door puts you on the sand. The new mattresses are very comfortable and the house has just about all the amenities of your everyday home. We obviously enjoy our stays here as repeat customers, but we also recommend it to anyone traveling with family.

Family of Six Getaway in Port A

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in Surf Shack. There was plenty of room for all 6 of us (4 kids under 10), and we were all quite comfortable when we were there. We chose to drive to the beach (rookie mistake since we drove a sandbox home), but it is certainly close enough to walk.

While we were there we are at Port A Pizza and Irie's both were really good. The pizza buffet was a great value a specially with the younger kids, and Irie's was a nice change up to accomodate the kids & the foodie side of our family (my wife and I).

Excellent vacation homes!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying at both the Surf Shack and the Hana House. They are very comfortable and super close to the beach. We loved the outdoor porch at the Hana House and the view from both houses. We will definitely be staying here again next year. We have also stayed at the other house Playa de Kiki owned by the same person and it was also super nice! Thank you for making this a real home away from home.

Had a GREAT time with my grandchildren! It is so much better being all together instead of renting several rooms for all of us. We were able to visit and laugh together in to the night and early the next morning. We stayed in the Surf Shack. The décor is done with beach flip flops. It is bright and breezy. We all enjoyed it so much and will definitely stay there again. Thank you Phyllis for allowing my family to make some wonderful memories.
