Picture yourself on the top deck with a cold drink on comfortable beach chairs checking out the amazing view. The house has three decks.

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!

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.

  • 5 of 5

The experience was fantastic! The house comes stocked with all the essentials you could possibly need for a great vacation and beach needs.

The beds are comfortable and the kitchen is perfect! You have a wonderful view from the balconies and the rooftop.

We all had a spectacular time and could not ask for a nicer house!

Owner's Response: I'm very pleased you all had a terrific time at Port Aransas! I think its important to have a restful sleep on good beds after vacationing hard all day!! And the roof deck view is great for morning reflection or night time margaritas! Thank you for your comments.

Loved It!!!

  • 5 of 5

This house was fantastic for our 3 families to stay at with enough room to spread out and a huge table and well stocked kitchen to make family meals a breeze. Carolyn was extremely responsive to any questions we had and went out of her way to find local information for us. My father is in a wheelchair and the elevator was a huge must so he could join us on the trip. Carolyn gave us extra measurements and details of the doorways, bed height, and bathroom specs so we could make informed decisions before booking so we could determine if the accessibility would work for his needs. The neighborhood and location to the beach are great and we enjoyed sitting on the rooftop deck and watching the sunrise/sunset and waves come in. I would fully recommend you stay here and soak in the sun and sand (just watch out for the crabs)! :)

Owner's Response: I'm so glad your father was comfortable and found the wheelchair access accommodating. Although the house isn't exactly ADA compliant, the elevator, master shower, dining table, doorways, etc. seem to fit most wheelchairs. Having the whole family together creates great memories!

Great Property!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Carolyn's place this June and couldn't have been happier! She was easy to communicate with and was very accommodating to our needs. The house was well appointed with everything we could have needed (pans, plates, utensils, koozies...) and was exactly as presented online. The vacation had multiple families and the adults particularly enjoyed happy hour on the top deck away from the kids.

We would definitely stay at this property again

Beautifully Furnished and Well Equipped

  • 5 of 5

We've rented beach houses for twenty years and this one beats them all for several reasons. It is well-maintained and has the most comfortable and spacious living area. For once, all of us could gather in the family room comfortably, with room for more. From the wall furnishings to the furniture it is just beautiful. We all commented about the bedroom furniture and how the mattresses were so comfortable. The kitchen was fully stocked and well-organized with everything needed; my favorite was the biggest skillet I've ever seen. Of course, I can't properly review this without mentioning the large upper deck with nice and comfortable seating and ocean view. Also, I've never used a faster, more responsive wifi; we were all using it at the same time and were amazed at the speed. The downstairs guest suite was very nice and spacious. Use of the elevator was a huge help in moving in and out of the house. The garage was useful for storing kayaks and other items. Carolyn was one step ahead of our needs in furnishing all of the information and checking on us during our stay. We all agreed that this was and our favorite place to rent in Port Aransas. Thanks for sharing your home, Carolyn.

Owner's Response: Thanks Anna, very much. Great info for our prospective renters. The wifi has proven to be important to renters and I got the best one I could find. I hope you and the family come back for more memories!

Beach Birthday

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at this house was incredible! We didn't want for a single thing (except a longer stay). The rooftop deck was spectacular. We were up there every morning and every night. The location of the home is perfect. Village Walk is close to the beach AND downtown so everything we wanted was a hop, skip and a jump away. Our group was all adults and the house accommodated everyone comfortably. Sand Fest was going on the same weekend and if you plan on attending, I recommend you don't drive your own vehicle on day two. Friday was fine but it took us an hour and forty-five minutes to get off of the beach on Saturday. The owner of the house was one of the best I've dealt with. Very communicative and FAST! I hope to be able to deal with her again!

Owner's Response: I enjoy trying to anticipate the needs of my renters and I definitely want everyone to enjoy their vacation and come back to Port Aransas and back to our beach house. I appreciate you letting me know you had a great time! I'll be sure to pass on your comments about beach traffic on Sand Fest weekend.
