“Comfy, cozy, and just steps from the Sandfest action”
Reviewed April 24, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Great family-friendly efficiency just 100 yards from the beach. The boardwalk over the dunes put us right in the middle of the Texas Sandfest site. Natalie, the owner, is detailed and attentive.

Eat at Eats and K's Deli, drink at the Brewery, shop at A Mano and boogie surf on the Gulf. The private deck overlooking the ocean provided phenomenal visual stimulation. The condo was great.

“The Perfect Unit”
Reviewed August 19, 2016 for a stay in August 2016
2
people found this review helpful

The unit had everything we needed for a one week getaway. My wife particularly loved that the kitchen fully stocked with all the necessary bowls, pots, pans, and utensils and kept nicely cleaned/organized for easy access. Local mart and stores are a short 5-6 min drive away so we found that packing food or beach equipment was unnecessary. Location cannot be understated, right when you walk into the unit you can literally see and hear the waves through the patio/balcony.

Most days my wife and I would just sit outside and relax listening to the waves on the beach chairs provided outside. (Much to our surprise there were also portable beach chairs provided as well)

Right across the street there is a picnic/barbecue area, tennis court, pool, and laundromat for washing and drying clothes. Faculty and staff on location were extremely kind and professional and offered room service daily with fresh towels as needed.

The beach itself is but a short 5 minute walk away using the catwalk, or a 10 minute drive if you intend to pack heavier items. Having the option to walk back to the unit at any time to bring more snacks or use the bathroom was priceless.

Finally, The owners were very considerate and made sure we had everything we needed for our stay. Can't recommend this unit enough

“Great location and fabulous sea view.”

My partner and I very much enjoyed staying at no.132. It had everything we needed for a 5 night stay, especially as Natalie was kind enough to visit and make some beach chairs available for us, which was really kind. The apartment is modern and spacious - the kitchen and bathroom particularly so. The location is great - the beach is just the other side of the dunes, and the pool is one minute away in the other direction. The nightlife and restaurants of Port A are a few minutes drive away and there are places to eat and drink even closer if you don't want to drive.
We were able to check in early which was handy.

“WONDERFUL, RELAXING WEEK!!”
Reviewed April 24, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

people found this review helpful

We spent last week (April 12-18) in unit #132. We could not have been more pleased with the accommodations. It is an efficiency unit but has plenty room. There are two queen beds, plenty of storage space, an outstanding kitchen and spacious bathroom. The beds were very comfortable and the kitchen had just about everything that anyone could ever want in the way of pots, pans, dishware and appliances. Our second floor balcony looked out onto the beach area and the waves were so soothing and relaxing to watch as they broke on the smooth, clean and firm sand. We were so pleased with the view from the balcony that we never unloaded our beach chairs or umbrella. We would go for long walks on the beach each morning and evening and just sit on the balcony and enjoy the view during the day. The path leading to the beach was at the corner of our building. We were pleasantly surprised when housekeeping came by every other day and brought fresh towels, picked up any trash bags and left any cleaning supplies that we needed. This was our first visit to Port Aransas and you can bet that we will be back.

Very pleasant stay and relaxing. Short distance walk to the beach and the beach was very clean. The owners were great and saw to it that everything that we needed for our stay was there for our use.

There was a family staying above us that had a small child so we could hear the child running back and forth at night. Other than that everything was what we expected and would stay here again.

“Perfect...”

My husband and I stayed in unit 134 for a week. Take the virtual tour, what you see is what you get! Clean, private, stocked kitchen, great housekeeping, quiet, beautiful view from your private patio. Excellent appliances, comfortable beds, nice couch. An easy walk to the beach. We were there over the 4th of July, the place was full. But it was pleasant and quiet.
I was amazed at the utensils, dishes, pots and pans, appliances, etc in the kitchen. We have been to Pt. A every summer for the past few years and have tried the lower priced places. We decided to spend a little more and not have to deal with some of the mess we have experienced at a couple of other places in Pt. A. Island Retreat was worth every cent! We will book this same unit again next year.
