A real value for a full family or group experience. Lot's of room so everyone can spread out without being on top of each other. Plenty of privacy. Picture yourself on the top deck with a cold drink on comfortable beach chairs checking out the amazing view. The house has three decks. Listen to the waves crashing on the beach; watch the sun rise or set. Pretty spectacular! Comfortable deck furniture.

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!

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! :)

Designer home near the beach

  • 5 of 5

We shared this beautiful beach home with my brothers and their families. Although not right on the beach, it is very close. We purchased beach parking passes at the local store and enjoyed parking right on the beach with our coolers, tents and beach toys. The home itself is tastefully decorated and well provisioned. This is a well-loved home that is clean and well maintained. The large kitchen and living area provided enough space for our entire family to gather for meals and game time. We also enjoyed the 3-story layout that allowed plenty of room for three families to spread out. And the rooftop deck is a relaxing spot to enjoy the gulf breezes. The owner, Carolyn, was fantastic. She provided detailed information about the property and location and was very quick to answer my emails. I would definitely recommend this property!

Owner's Response: Thank you Margaret for your kind comments. This house is not just rental beach property to us. Our family comes here monthly and we spend a large part of our visits focused on maintenance upkeep so the house is in good functional shape for our visitors. We don't want anyone to have to worry about anything not working or being uncomfortable. And we like the house clean as a whistle. Hope we see you again!

Outstanding end of summer vacation for 3 families

  • 5 of 5

We spent 3 nights here just before our boys reported back for football and what a fantastic and relaxing time we had. The unit is perfect for large groups. We had 13 people there and everyone had a bed and place at the dinner table (huge table). The beds were extremely comfortable, the AC worked great, and having a full size washer/dryer right there really helped. Also, there's an elevator to help with luggage! The owner was always helpful and available, even when I emailed her a question at 7am. The rooftop deck was great for morning coffee and evening drinks watching the sunset over the water. All 3 families really enjoyed our stay here and would definitely like to return.

Owner's Response: Trying to pull friends together for an end of summer time is difficult but I'm glad it turned out so well. The house does lend itself to having group or family time together. And comfortable beds can make a big difference in a quality vacation! I hope to see you all again.

Beautiful, comfortable, welcoming

  • 5 of 5

Such a wonderful experience from start to finish! Carolyn provides so much good information about the lovely property, and she is quick to respond to any questions. The house is amazing! It is beautifully decorated with nice furnishings and decor throughout. The beds were very comfortable in all of the bedrooms. The kitchen is very well stocked with nice pots, pans, serve ware and dishes. There was plenty of beach equipment including chairs, toys, towels, and an awesome awning with great instructions and equipment to keep it from blowing away! We didn't need it, but there is also tons of nice baby gear. I know from past experience how much room that takes up in the car, so if you stay at the Nelson's beach house (and you SHOULD!) be sure to ask Carolyn before you start packing all the bulky baby gear - there is a good chance she has it! She has done everything imaginable to make the house feel like home. I would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for high quality comfort and enjoyment.

Owner's Response: Your review was so thorough!! Thanks for taking the time to let me know all the things you liked! I do like to anticipate my guests needs and that is usually based on what I would look for in a beach rental. And anything I am able to provide that you don't have to haul, is a good thing!

Great vacation home for a big family!

  • 5 of 5

The house was the perfect vacation home in Port Aransas. The location is close to the beach and close to all the restaurants and shops. The house has a very nice layout, everyone enjoyed it. We have a young baby and the separate suite downstairs was perfect for us. We had privacy and silence, it was like a separate hotel room. All the beds and bathrooms were nice, and the kitchen/living area was great for visiting with each other. We will stay here again!

Owner's Response: Thank you! It is always hard to travel with a baby and with small children and still feel rested when you leave. Being able to have the resources you need to keep baby and kids happy is essential to making you and other extended family members happy and rested. Having a house large enough to retreat to our own area is great yet have a large common area for togetherness is wonderful!

Great time at the beach!

  • 5 of 5

This is the second year my family has stayed at this property. The manager is great to work with and is available to answer questions. The house is very clean and well appointed. With beach chairs, beach tent, towels, and beach toys, all that is needed is a suitcase and food. It makes vacation so much easier! The location is great and only minutes from the beach by cart or car. There is plenty of room for our family of ten. We are looking to next year.

Owner's Response: Thank you for reviewing your experience! I got to thinking about folks traveling a good ways to get to Port Aransas and figured with a car full of people and baggage, it would be nice not to have to worry about beach toys, boogie boards, beach chairs, towels, and a beach tent and baby equipment as well. Glad it all was put to good use. Hope to see you again next year!
