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.

Beautiful

When we arrived the view was amazing. The condo was equipped with everything you need. We enjoyed the amenities as well as the beach. It was worth every penny we paid to stay here.

Beautiful condo & great location!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our vacation at this beautiful condo with our family of 10 including 4 grandkids under 6! There were plenty of beds for everyone and it was very safe for our 11 mo old toddler! We loved sitting out on the balcony and the beach view was very relaxing. We enjoyed the short walk to the beach, playing on the beach and the great swimming pool daily! The elevator was very helpful in getting stuff & people to & from the third floor condo. The owner was very prompt in answering our emails. We highly recommend this condo!

Beautiful oceanfront condo!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was perfect for our family getaway. There was plenty of room for all 11 of us (6 adults and 5 children). The condo was beautifully decorated, very clean, and came well equipped with everything we needed for cooking in the kitchen. Our favorite aspect of this condo was the gorgeous view of the ocean from the kitchen and living area. We can't wait to come back next year. This is going to be an annual tradition for our family!

Wonderful beach home!

  • 4 of 5

Very clean and modern home. Plenty of beds for a large family. Very large and well-equipped kitchen. Close enough to walk to the beach and pools with my 3 year old grandson. We had a great visit!

Really Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

Port Aransas is a fantastic place to vacation, and this property was a great choice for us.

Fantastic view, and well decorated. The kitchen had all the dishes and such we needed.

The elevator really helped with getting our luggage up and down, and the beach access was convenient.

Will definitely stay here again when we need this much space.

Almost Luxuries Place, Nice, Clean, Spacious & Amazing view

  • 5 of 5

The Condo is spacious, first thing came out of my guests mouth was WOW when they entered in the condo, the whole kitchen, dinning and living area is so spacious and the two sliding glass large doors gives an amazing view of the beach, it's like you enter in the condo and you see the Sea right in front, the private balcony has lots of chairs & coffee table. Kitchen has island in the middle with electric stove and microwave, stainless steel sink with new appliances, I liked the dishwasher so much that I took the model number as this thing doesn't make any noise at all :), kitchen had all the essential utensils, cooking pots & pans, salt & pepper & other spices & cooking oil etc, she even had paper plates besides the regular dishes in case you don't feel like washing the dishes, washer & dryers are new & good quality. aesthetic details of the Condo tells you that she had made this condo for herself and not just for renting

There were enough beds and bunk beds & enough pillows, bathroom had enough towels for all of us, basic toiletries were available, but bring your own toothpaste

Air Condition, so I have heard from lots of folks that beach house & condos don't have good A/C, but let me tell you it's not the case & it's not there fault, this Condo do have good A/C, it's just the humidity at the beach which make you feel warm even with A/C running fine, I see the rooms doesn't have very good vents, but there were fans in each room so that solves the problem, non of us felt it's hot after we turn on the fans, but overall, A/C was working fine

Love the keyless access of the door, use the code to open and lock the door when you are leaving, elevator is kind of slow, but I don't blame them as it's right at the beach, but we didn't use it, we saw our neighbors used it to transport there stuff up & down, stairs were fine and not difficult to climb

The Island retreat is a good community, when we reached there, we were greeted by a security guard and he guide us to the office, you get your car tag & wrist bands for your party at the office, There were two full size swimming pools (no life guard), tennis courts, play area of kids, and a big picnic area where you can sit and have a family meal and also do BBQ on the grills in the picnic area

There were two wooden bridge & paved path to go the beach from the Island retreat and there are outdoor showers so you can have a quick shower before getting back to your condo

It's a safe place for family with kids
