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!! It comfortably accommodates 4 people. The living room features a comfortable couch that converts to a Queen-size bed with a thick 5” mattress, 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 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 Port Aransas

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 I like to do in and around Port A....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 if 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!!

Good location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a few nights away from the kids. We wanted a relaxing area and a close walk to the beach- this place achieved both. We walked to the beach multiple times a day and used the chairs and cooler provided. We also walked to a few restaurants and shops. The bed was comfortable- kitchen well stocked and overall very clean. Relaxing and exactly what we were looking for.

Weekend Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Very cute condo! The owner has everything you could possibly need, from bath towels to a fully equipped kitchen, it's hard not to enjoy the beach-themed home--my boyfriend and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay! Even though there is a boardwalk to the beach, we rented a golf cart to get the full "Port A experience" and highly recommend the folks at Bron's. Take the ferry at least once! The island definitely feels like it's own little oasis!

Great long weekend!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time while in Port A. The condo was conveniently located and made it easy access for me to go back and forth from the beach with our 4 month old to feed him and take breaks during the day. The food in the surrounding area was amazing (my son has a dairy and soy intolerance and everyone was extremely helpful and I had some amazing food and great customer service!) We loved having the two bathrooms available just to spread out while we were there. The beach chairs and beach mat were great to have since we brought a tent for or son it gave us a lot of space to sit on without having to sit in the sand.

Every little detail

  • 5 of 5

We loved this condo! Josie thought of every little detail and made the place feel like home. The kitchen was fully stocked, the bed was very comfortable, she even has a beach umbrella and beach chairs for you to carry to the short walk to the beach. After returning from the beach, there is a hose to wash of your chairs and coolers, step in the outdoor shower and jump in the refreshing pool just outside the back patio. This has been one of our favorite stays in Port A
