This is the perfect spot for a sweet family getaway! It is the perfect size for group of 10 - 12. It has everything you could possibly need or want - beach, pool, king-size beds, loaded kitchen, patios with perfect views AND it's so close to dining, shopping, and everything else you could possibly need. We had an excellent time and will definitely be back!

Beautiful home and location. Owners rules and property management rules conflict on a few matters. Property mgmt never called me back to clarify. Apparently after 4pm on Friday, renters are on their own. Elevator never worked. Was not expecting to have to haul everything up 2 and 3 flights of stairs. Owner should be proud of their home but should ditch the mgmt co. House gets an A+ Property mgmt gets a D I’m a controller for a high net-worth family that owns a similar home in Port Aransas and we have fired a mgmt co for similar lack of attention to customer service. When you rent this level of home you expect the same level of customer service from the mgmt co as well. They go hand in hand.
