Overview

Texas Gulf Coast Condo Rental Photos and Description

Top Floor, Beachfront Penthouse Condo, 4 Bedrooms + Other, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 12)

The nights of June 11 and 12 are on sale!! Only $445/night plus departure/cleaning fee and tax.

We have just finished a total remodel of this Top Floor Penthouse Condo. We "took it down to the studs" and replaced the electrical wiring and plumbing as well. New passenger elevator installed December 2015.

Let the view and sounds of the gulf soothe the stress away. Beautifully furnished condominium with unobstructed views of the Gulf from the master bedroom, living room, dining room, kitchen and middle bedroom. Unobstructed gulf views from the large gulf front balcony. Our condo is in Island Retreat II which is Marker 11 on the beach. The address for the entrance to Island Retreat is 700 Island Retreat Court , Port Aransas, TX 78373. The entrance is not beachfront but our condo is beachfront.

Please check the availability calendar for the dates you want before you contact us. We are not a property management company and we keep the calendar up to date. If the calendar shows the dates as unavailable, it is accurate. We typically do not rent just the weekends during the summer unless earlier in the week has already booked. We have invested significantly in our condo and we are not a venue for partying or for groups that will not take excellent care of our home. Thank you.

Washer & Dryer in our condo.

New passenger elevator will be installed by January 2016.

Island Retreat is a great place to spend time with family and friends. This smoke-free condominium is just a short boardwalk away from the beach. The town trolley stops by the front office. Boat parking on-site.

The beach is awesome for playing with the kids, acting like a kid yourself, enjoying the scenery, taking a long stroll, a morning jog, reading a book, or delighting in the last rays of a gorgeous sunset. If you don't feel like get sandy at the beach relax by one of the two pools or play some tennis, volleyball, shuffleboard or basketball.

Or simply treasure pushing your child in a swing on the playground as they giggle with enjoyment.

Port Aransas has some great restaurants for when you feel like eating out (or you didn't have any luck fishing). For those who are feeling lucky there is the Texas Treasure gambling ship.

If you feel like exploring there are plenty of options - scuba diving, snorkeling, sailing, deep sea fishing, Aransas Wildlife Refuge and Whooping Crane Habitat or the beach!

About Jane Livingston - Owner

I consider myself to be very blessed and fortunate to live in a country where we can enjoy our freedoms. I am a lucky mom to a wonderful teenage son. I find the world and people fascinating and relish the time I can spend traveling and exploring.. I love to travel, experience the world and spend time outdoors.

Jane Livingston - Owner purchased this condo in 2015

Why Jane Livingston - Owner chose Texas Gulf Coast

When I first visited Port Aransas I knew that I wanted to live there someday. Island Retreat is beachfront has great ocean views. Island Retreat has plenty of room with all kinds of amenities. 2 Pools, Grills, Playground, Volleyball, Basketball, Tennis Courts and Shuffleboard.

What makes this condo unique

The third/top floor has gulf views with a large balcony that spans the living room and dining room. We have maximized our condo to accommodate families to that parents can be together with kids and grandchildren. We are beachfront with an easy walk on the boardwalk over the sand dunes to the flat part of the beach. It is so relaxing to sit on the large balcony for hours watching the waves, reading a book our spending time with friends and family.

Perfect Beach Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We brought some out of town family to visit the beach, and this property was perfect. Lots of space, well stocked kitchen, everything was very clean and well maintained. We will definitely return here when we visit Port A again.

Our "40th" Anniversary in Port Aransas

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 7 adults and 3 children under 5 thoroughly enjoyed our 40th anniversary celebration. The condo was fully equipped, nicely decorated and ready to go when we arrived. The high chair and pack-n-play was a bonus. The beautiful view of the gulf from the full length porch on one side, and the pool, play ground and picnic area on the other made it so convenient. We cooked out some evenings, and we had a short walk to the beach every day. This was a great place to stay and I highly recommend it.

GREAT VACATION, TOO SHORT!

  • 5 of 5

What a great view of the ocean, short walk to the beach which was not crowded at all. Condo is beautiful, very spacious, well furnished. Took the wife and 6 kids down for spring break, everything was great. Well except that we wish we could have stayed longer! We plan to stay here again in the future...

Clean, well stocked, and convenient to the beach

  • 5 of 5

This is the kind of condo available on VRBO that keeps us using this site. The condo was clean, attractive, and very convenient to the beach (just as advertised). We stayed for the long MLK weekend, and were composed of 2 families. The 3rd floor provided a great view of the beach. Also, the balcony, which essentially spans the entire condo, made me want to move to Port A so I could enjoy coffee in a place like this every morning. Inside, the condo is spacious with tasteful and modern furnishings. The space is clean, open, and without clutter. The kitchen is perhaps the best stocked kitchen (in terms of dishes, utensils, cookware, etc.) we have experienced after several years of annuals trips to Port A. My only glitchy issue was related to some confusion arising from our reservation occurring at a time when rental policies were changing; however, the owner was very responsive once the situation was revealed. It was quickly addressed, and I would not imagine that any of this would be an issues for future renters. We have stayed in several condos and houses in this general area and this is our favorite thus far. I highly recommend!!!
