Great, condo and complex. Would def. recommend to family and friends. Very clean and well kept. The complex, grounds and pool, were all immaculate. Beach access and condo looked exactly like the pictures online. The owner was very nice to call and check-in and then to call back and let me know that I could receive my deposit. Very satisfied with my stay.
You can't ask for more in a beach condo! This beach wonderland has everything...a well-stocked, modern full kitchen, beautiful furnishings, a lovely gulf view, a fantastic pool, tennis courts, friendly, helpful staff, and a very nice owner! My first visit to Island Retreat in Port Aransas won't be my last.
Great place to stay! The efficiency was clean when we arrived. Fully stocked so we could cook. Beautiful both inside & out! We throughly enjoyed the view from the patio! Building was right by the boardwalk to the beach. The owner was great communicating with us. Everything was as promised. Will definitely stay again & again & again! Thank you for a wonderful place to stay!
Beautiful condo with great patio and view of the ocean. Nice swimming pool, laundry and tennis courts directly across from the unit. My sister and I loved it and will definitely go back. Owner very nice and helpful. Best place to stay in Port A.
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 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
