Beachfront condos

We may have to cancel other vacation plans that we have and are thinking of traveling to Port Aransas instead. Can anyone give us recommendations on a condo, or an area to stay at on the beach (whether it's Mustang Island, Padre etc.)? We have 2 kids and are mostly interested in playing on the beach and then maybe do a couple of different activities around the area so most importantly, we want a nice beach.

You may get better results posting this to the Port Aransas forum. Here is a link to the Port Aransas Chamber of Commerce list of places to stay:

You might look into Villa del Sol Condo on North Beach, which is just over the bridge from Downtown Corpus. It has the perfect location for family with young children as it sits on the beach with calm water and so requires no street crossing. It is also within walking distance to the famous Lexington, a floating air-carrier museum sure to wow the kids. Next to that is the Texas State Aquarium, also enjoyable for young and old. A 5-min. drive over the bridge will bring you to other vacation attractions . . .

A search on the Internet will net you lots of positive and negative reviews. Take that with a big grain of salt. There are as many reasons for the comments as there are folks. A wise traveler will not take them at face value. My family continues to enjoy going there, but that is just us. Enough said.

I would recommend Casa condos in Port A. They are right on the Gulf and have a very short walk from your door, thru the dunes to the beach. The pool is very nice too with lots of chairs. There are BBQ grills to use around the pool too. It is a short drive into Port A or Corpus. Lots of good resturants in Port A and Corpus of course has the Aquarium & the Lexington.

Thank you for your responses! I forgot to ask too for any recommendations for hotels??? We also might stay in Rockport/Fulton. Is this a good place to visit? How about hotels in that area?
