Port Aransas Condo Rental Photos and Description

Close to beach!1 Bedroom condo, King bed, Queen sofa/sleepr, 2 Baths, Sleeps 2-4

You can relax in my clean and comfy condo by the sea... or, you can take a short stroll down the wooden boardwalk and be on the beach in minutes.

Enjoy your morning coffee from your private little patio while you watch the sun come up.… and, in the evening, listen to the ocean waves and feel the gulf breeze. You’ll love our pool area because it is so close and has tables, chairs, loungers and umbrellas. A nearby outdoor shower permits you to wash the salt and the sand off before hitting the pool. The pool also features small sitting areas with Jacuzzi jets.

Number 105 is in a small quiet complex not far from town, on the first floor (no stairs), making unloading the car an easy chore. This is an ideal location and perfect for couples, families and Winter Texans. Not only is it close to the beach and close to downtown Port Aransas, it is only 30 miles to Corpus Christi for dining and shopping and visiting the USS Lexington (nicknamed the Blue Ghost) and the Texas State Aquarium. Our newest addition, Schlitterbahn Waterpark, is a 20 minute drive. Other nearby features are the New Port Dunes, a Arnold Palmer Signature Golf Course (Pro-Shop, snack bar) as well as the Aransas Queen Casino ship, a Pirate Adventure on the sea for the kids and the Aransas National Wildlife Refuge for birding lovers.

This hidden treasure is equipped with all the conveniences of home including a well-supplied kitchen. There are so many good restaurants in Port Aransas, you may not even want to cook!! The kitchen comfortably accommodates 4 people. The living room features a comfortable couch that converts to a Queen-size bed with a thick 5” mattress (as well as an eggcrate topper, if needed), a LazyBoy Rocker that reclines and a 42” LCD flat screen TV. The unit does have cable as well as a small selection of movies to play on the DVD/VCR combo and a few books, games and cards. My one-bedroom condo has a king-size bed (and an egg crate topper) and TWO full bathrooms which will prove to be invaluable. The time taking a shower after the beach can be cut in half having two bathrooms. The living area with the pull-out sofa is separated from the bedrooms by 2 hallway doors for privacy or quietness...

Oceanside, the patio features a seating area with twin high-backed chairs and comfy pillows. Smoking is permitted in this area.

For your convenience, a coin operated laundry and two grills (one propane, one charcoal) are on the premise. Find your little piece of paradise here at Sunrise Villas, No. 105.

About Josie Holcomb

I am a retired Texas (and Dept. of Defense) Reading Specialist who loves to travel and fish the Gulf of Mexico. This has been my vacation home for many years and just recently refurbished the entire condo to provide a litttle bit of paradise for myself, my family and my friends... and now you, too. There is nothing like being on 'Island Time'.

Josie Holcomb purchased this condo in 1999

Why Josie Holcomb chose Texas Gulf Coast

I chose to buy this beach home for many reasons. My family has been vacationing in Port Aransas since I was a teenager (many moons ago) so I have ALWAYS loved Port Aransas. Sunrise Villa Condominiums reflect a family oriented location that remains quaint. It has a quiet, peaceful atmosphere away from the hustle and bustle and most importantly, it's close proximity to the beach was a definite asset.

What makes this condo unique

There are many things one can do in and around Port Aransas....kayaking, birding, fishing, swimming, golfing, shopping, museums...or, do some crafting, read, stroll the beach, sit outside and enjoy the cool Gulf breezes. The best thing to do is to relax. If I decide to go out, there are numerous local restaurants to enjoy. If I decide to cook at home, I've got everything one would need to prepare a tasty meal. No matter what I do, it ALWAYS seems better when I do it at the beach!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Josie,

Thank you so much for the wonderful accommodations. Your condo is so beachy fun, we positively loved it! You thought of absolutely everything when equipping the condo. Every little nook and cranny had a cute little something of interest so tastefully done. However cozy it may be, the utilization of space maximizes the usefulness of everything.

The neighbors were friendly, the pool was refreshing the parking was convenient and the beach, most importantly was nicely accessible. I loved the proximity to be able to easily sneak out before the sun was up and relish a quiet morning walk on the beach. My soul is full!

Thank you again for the use of your wonderful home!!

Lovely beach condo!

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect place for my small family! The decor was so fun and beachy, and it was super clean and well kept. The condo had everything we needed, and more, plus life was so much easier with 2 full bathrooms. We were very happy to be close to the pool and minutes away from the beach. The owner was a gem. We can't wait to go back!

Timing is Everything

  • 2 of 5

I recently stayed at this property over the Labor Day weekend. My selection criteria was proximity to the beach, downtown Port A and ratings. With 50 reviews and more than 4 star average I was pretty confident in the booking. I must say that the location was perfect. Close, easy walk out to the beach and a nice walk to downtown restaurants and shopping.

The pictures revealed that the place was a bit dated but it looked clean. Unfortunately for us, there was a week lapse between maid service and when we walked in we found many dead palmetto bugs. In addition, there was a cigarette extinguisher near the entrance to the unit which people that smoke at the building did not care about since there were dozens of cigarette butts on the property surrounding it. Not a great way to enter the unit.

We could tell that the unit was generally clean and in good shape. The owner was very apologetic and tried to make things right but sometimes first impressions last.

Owner's Response: The enjoyment and comfort of my guests is my number one priority. When you called about the dead palmetto bugs, I immediately called my housekeeper to go remove them. Unfortunately, it was Labor Day weekend and she had left town. . To compensate you for having to dispose of the dead bugs yourselves, I told you I would give you a $50 refund and you told me you were satisfied with that. I have to say that I am surprised and disappointed you felt the need to give me such a low rating when I did everything I could to satisfy you.

Great coastal getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was impeccably furnished and decorated and very clean. It's close to the pool, beach, and town. The owner is very responsive to any inquiries. Only issue - didn't stay long enough but we will definitely stay here again.

Perfect beach home!!

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous!! Everything has been thought of in this house. Extra towels, beach toys for kids and spices for cooking! Josie communicated with us every detail we needed to know. You can literally walk out the door to the pool and beach. We will for sure stay here again when we come back to Port A!

Sweet little condo in Port Aransas

  • 5 of 5

I found this cute little place after searching for rental properties in both Port A and South Padre Island. The price was right, the location was great, the complex's pool was just a few steps from the condo's back gate, the beach was a short walk away, everything was clean and well-kept... honestly, I'd be hard-pressed to find anything negative to say about my family's stay there. (Okay, there is one thing - the stove doesn't have a functioning vent hood, which I found out the hard way when I cooked a pan-seared steak on the stove top one night and ended up filling the front room with smoke! No alarms went off but the air was a bit thick for the next few hours, even with the windows opened.) My husband and I are already looking forward to our next stay!

Quaint and Clean! Perfect place for a getaway!

  • 5 of 5

I came here with my wife and 2 young children for a little getaway. 2 bathrooms are a major plus when you have 4 people needing a shower. Well appointed with free wifi and all the little things you don't think about; Utensils, cooking spices,DVDs, books, etc. Clean community pool just outside the door. Minutes to the beach by way of private boardwalk. Definitely recommend, especially if on a budget.
