About Carolyn Nelson

We have been going to Port A for years bringing our children to the coast to enjoy the ocean environment. This is such a peaceful place to renew yourself. We wanted to be able to have a place here in Port A for our children to bring their children to experience all we have shared together.

Carolyn Nelson purchased this condo in 2011

Why Carolyn Nelson chose Texas Gulf Coast

This house is close to the beach with a tremendous view. You cannot walk to the beach from our house but these days by the time you gather your cooler, beach bags, chairs, umbrella or tent, and kids, you need a car to haul your stuff. This house has security, privacy, and beauty. It's got it all!

What makes this condo unique

You can sit on a deck on every floor in the house. You can grill the fish you caught that day! You can sit on the roof deck with a beverage and enjoy the peaceful sounds of the ocean. It doesn't get much better than this!

Family outing

  • 5 of 5

This property was exactly as advertised, excellent location near the beach and restaurants and the amenities couldn't have been better. The attention to detail was exceptional, the owner has expended much time and effort to make sure that nothing was overlooked. The layout of the building suited our needs perfectly and everything was clean and well-maintained. The building has a delightful "beachy" feel to it from the furnishings to the colors. It's been a pleasure dealing with the owner, customer service was excellent. The only negative was the very cold weather and I doubt that was the owner's fault. It turned out not to be a problem as we stayed inside and played cards and other games, talked, watched movies, etc. The design of the house permits several activities to happen concurrently without interfering with each other. We had dinner Saturday night at the Trout Street Grille and the food and service were very good. We did take an abbreviated walk on the beach Sunday morning, it was still quite cold and windy but it was fun. Overall, I'd definitely recommend this property to friends and relatives.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the kind comments! Of course the weather cannot be guaranteed to my dismay but by having good televisions and DVD's, along with plenty of table games, families still get the interaction desired from their vacation. Happy New Year!!

We had a wonderful and relaxing Thanksgiving week staying in this beautiful home in Village Walk! We didn't want to leave. The main level is open, spacious, and bright with plenty of seating for your entire extended family or friends. The kitchen is fully stocked, and there are windows everywhere with a view of the ocean. A huge sectional and large, flat screen tv was the icing on the cake for all the football watching. Even better, my dad is in a wheelchair, and it can be extremely difficult to find homes like this that are truly handicap friendly and not just wheelchair accessible. The bars in the master bathroom and shower were very helpful not to mention the elevator. I highly recommend staying in Carolyn's home! It is beautiful and she is very helpful and responsive. I also recommend renting a golf cart during your stay as it makes it even more fun to ride down to the beach and around town.

Amazing family vacation house!

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful home for our family vacation! We had a group of 7 (5 adults and 2 kids) so this house gave us plenty of room to move around in! My 90 year old grandmother that uses a walker and is unable to navigate stairs safely was with us on this trip and was able to enjoy every minute knowing that she could use the elevator. We try to get to the coast every year as a family and it had become difficult finding homes to accommodate my grandmother with out isolating members of the family, but NOT in this house!!:-) We were amazed at how well stocked the home was. It was nice not to pack beach toys and not to have to buy any new ones due to the extensive selection available at the house (my kiddos loved them all!). My youngest son turned 7 during our stay and the house was the perfect place for his birthday and I was even able to bake him a cake due to all the kitchen appliances/utensils available! I have to extend a special thank you to Carolyn for being such a great home owner! My child left one of his babies and a shirt in the bed when we left and she rescued the baby (and shirt) and sent them home to us. I have never experienced such a helpful and attentive property owner and it really makes a trip extra special. We look forward to staying here again in the future!!

Best Family Home in Port A

  • 5 of 5

We have spent the last two Labor Day weekends at this house and we absolutely love it. Usually about 10-11 of us. Plenty of room. So many great extras like a washer and dryer. Well stocked bathrooms. Well stocked kitchen. The place is gorgeous. The views amazing. And it's in the best neighborhood on the beach. Hands down. Pool just a short distance. And the owners are just fantastic! Plan to spend more weekends here with our family!

Amazing house with everything you need!

  • 5 of 5

Three families shared this fantastic house for three nights and will definitely rent it again! We have grown up going to Port A and have never stayed in a more comfortable, clean and well stocked home on the Island. We loved the homey feel, the comfortable beds, nice bathrooms, elevator, and all the cute kitchen glasses, cups and plates. The washer and dryer were also very convenient to have. The rooftop deck was great for coffee in the morning and wine in the evening. I could go on and on, it is a great place to stay!! Thank you. Expect us back next year! :)

Owner's Response: Thanks for mentioning many of the details! I love all the glassware as well. I get them from a local shop that buys from artists in South America. The different glasses help large groups know which glass is theirs! And, of course, the roof deck is a real special place to breathe in the salt air and watch the waves go in and out. Very relaxing.
