Overview

About the property

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

Port Aransas registration number 248283.

Our Top Floor Penthouse Condo has been totally remodeled. We "took it down to the studs" and replaced the electrical wiring and plumbing as well. New passenger elevator installed December 2015 - adults only.

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. I can be reached on 612.229.7999 if you have questions.

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!

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 so 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.

Very nice place. We enjoyed our stay.

  • 4 of 5

The condo was great. Hard to find a unit with 4 bedrooms with at least 3 king beds. Plenty of room in living space as well. Only thing I didn't care for was the surprise 3% charge for using a credit card to pay for the rental. There wasn't anything about that on the listing and I didn't see any other options when booking it. Overall a great place to stay.

Owner's Response: We are glad you enjoyed your stay. The 3% is listed under the Notes section of the rates and always has been on our listing . It is charged by the credit card processor and that is how your credit card company gives you points or miles etc. You can pay by echeck and not pay the 3% and many people do pay by echeck. We hope you have a wonderful summer. Thank you, Jane

Great Family Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great condo for a family vacation. I took my son and his family - including their six children ages 10 and under! - for some beach time. This condo was perfect for us:

The 3rd floor had amazing views of the beach and was a quiet retreat for the adults in early morning and in the evenings.

With 4 bedrooms, there was plenty of sleeping space for adults and children. There were plenty of towels and the linens were nice quality.

The kitchen is wonderfully stocked with everything you'll need including non-breakables for the little ones and a wonderful supply of wine glasses, etc. for adult R&R. Pots and pans for most everyone's vacation cooking needs were abundant as were kitchen essentials (coffee pot, toaster, even had a coffee grinder.)

The unit is located about mid-way between the walkway to the beach and the pool. We took a detour to the pool on our way back from the beach for the kids to cool down and to rinse off the sand.

The complex itself is quiet with plenty of parking even on the weekends (and security manages entry on the weekend as well).

Definitely a great choice for larger groups and amazing for families..

A very nice venue

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent four nights , along with children and grandchildren from out of state. It was in part a celebration of our 50th wedding anniversary. The condo is very nice, a beautiful location overlooking the beach. The appointments are also very nice, nice open living space, kitchen and plenty of sleeping area. I towed my boat to the area and there was no problem parking it right near the condo. The children all enjoyed all their time on the beach and the balcony was a great place to lounge and read a book or sip a B&B. I would highly recommend this property to anyone with a large group of up to twelve.

We had such a good time

  • 5 of 5

The condo was just as described. We had three couples and two extra and there was plenty of space for everyone. The kitchen was well equipped. The condo was very clean. We would consider this place again when we next go to Port Aransas.
