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.

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!

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.

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.

Truly wonderful beach vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

This was my first VRBO experience AND first time visiting Port A. The owner was very patient with all of my questions and their representation of the property spot on. This is a very well equipped, spacious, lovely and inviting property that made for an ideal beach vacation. Port A is a charming town with GREAT restaurants and watering holes and the folks we met were warm and welcoming. We'll be back again!

No "Surprises"

  • 5 of 5

Great property! All the beds were comfortable, very clean, and all the amenities worked perfectly. The distance from the condo to the beach was as good as it gets. Thanks for keeping this place top notch, Jane.

Great

  • 4 of 5

The property itself was fantastic. But having to take the time to wash our towels and things that we used was unorthodox. Otherwise it was an amazing time.

Owner's Response: Thank you for sharing that our condo is fantastic. Washing towels and cleaning up after yourself might be unorthodox for a hotel, but not for a private condo with a washer and dryer. Have a blessed 2017 and may the memories of the amazing time at our condo last forever.

spacious ocean view

  • 4 of 5

The condo has an open kitchen and living area which is nice for relaxing and hanging out. Well stocked kitchen, plenty of dishes and pans (could use a nice saute or skillet). Bedroom and baths were comfortable and had everything needed. Deck from living area has a great view of the ocean and chairs to relax. Nice location on the island close to restaurants and shops. Easy walk or drive to beach. Jane (the owner) was very responsive before and while staying. I would enjoy staying here again.
