Overview

Port Aransas Condo Rental Photos and Description

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

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.

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.

Great family friendly condo in Port A

  • 5 of 5

Condo was very spacious, clean and perfect for large family. The kitchen had everything needed for food prep (even casseroles and cake pans) and the dining table can accommodate 10 easily. Loved that it is close to town, but just far enough down the beach to get out of the big crowd. We had a great stay!

Excellent value

  • 5 of 5

My wife manages a real estate company dealing in high dollar homes. We have never seen a coastal property with the understated class this one has. Everything was perfect. From the beautiful and plentiful dishware to the towels and bedding, it was not only comfortable but luxurious. Two of our "gang" are going to try to reserve it for family events next year.

Thanks, Jane!

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!
