The Meridian 3BR, Walk to the Beach
"We went to Port Aransas for a beach vacation over Christmas. The trip was very good. The house is 1 building from the beach, with a large apartment building between the porch and the beach. There are 2 units in the house, one on the second floor and one on the third floor. It's a short walk to the beach. It's about half a mile to the main road, with several restaurants on the way. The condo itself was very nice. It was well equipped with nice furniture. My bad back felt better after sleeping on the bed. The unit has a very large washer and dryer, very nice for a family of 4. We didn't use the pool, but there is a nice private pool area just behind the unit. There's also a gas grill in that area that worked well. All in all a very good experience."..."

How to pick the perfect vacation rental in Port Aransas

With palm tree-lined streets and convenient beach access, the 19-square-mile coastal Port Aransas—known as “Port A”—allures travelers from Texas and beyond. The gulf shore island is just a short drive from many of Texas’ big cities; given the island’s size, all of Port Aransas’ top attractions are just a quick drive away. In addition to beachgoers, Port Aransas is a haven for bird watchers, a must-visit for nature lovers, and a destination for sportfishers. Those seeking a relaxing coastal getaway—or a convenient home base for daytime activities—will find a variety of charming home rental properties in Port A’s Palmilla Resort and the Royal Sands community.

Whether you’re visiting for fishing, relaxing, or to watch the impressive array of migrating birds, here are a few tips to make sure you pick the perfect vacation rental in Port Aransas.

  1. Where to stay for beach access in Port Aransas: As a small island, Port Aransas is ringed by sandy oceanfront views, but many are private and inaccessible to the public. The best neighborhoods to rent a beach-access vacation home in Port Aransas include the island’s northern end toward the public (and pet-friendly) IB Magee Beach and its adjacent Port Aransas Beach.
  2. Where to stay for birding in Port Aransas: Port Aransas is located along a major migratory bird route; it sees thousands of migrating species—not to mention hundreds of indigenous birds—every year. Given its location and abundance of bird species, the town also hosts an annual Whooping Crane Festival to honor the endangered whooping crane in February. The best area for bird watchers to rent a Port Aransas vacation home or condo is just south of downtown near Wetland Park or Port Aransas Nature Preserve. The latter has a panoramic birding center on-site.
  3. Where to stay for golfing in Port Aransas: Port Aransas’ main golf course, Palmilla Beach Golf Club, is located just over three miles from downtown—and it’s the perfect spot for golfers to rent a vacation home or condo. The par-71 course has been rated one of Texas’ top golf destinations, and it’s home to the Port Aransas Open, which takes place every January. Vacation rentals near the Palmilla Beach Golf Club offer access to the links-style course as well as the beach.
  4. Where to stay for rest and relaxation in Port Aransas: For a quiet beach getaway, head five miles south of downtown to rent a vacation home in one of Port Aransas’ most secluded and serene resort communities, Palmilla Beach Resort & Golf Community. Local neighborhood hangouts like Lisabella’s and C Bar Cafe pair with a dune-lined beach to help you unwind and relax on a more remote part of the island. Alternatively, you can still enjoy some rest and relaxation near downtown Port Aransas with a vacation condo in the Costa Del Ray community. These condos include beach access and an on-site pool.
  5. Where to stay for sportfishing in Port Aransas: Game fish like sharks and red snapper can be found off the Gulf Shore, making Port Aransas—often considered the gateway to the Gulf—one of Texas’ best destinations for sportfishing. If you’re planning to fish in Port Aransas, rent a vacation home or condo in downtown for quick access to sportfishing outfitters like Bill Busters and Badfish. If the Gulf Coast’s oldest fishing tournament, the Deep Sea Roundup, is in your future plans, rent a home in downtown Port Aransas for close proximity to the weekend’s events.
  6. Where to stay for a family vacation in Port Aransas: With miniature golf, clean beaches, and kid-friendly dining, Port Aransas makes for a stress-free family getaway—particularly if you’re renting a vacation home near downtown. This area has a variety of restaurants such as MacDaddy’s Family Kitchen and wholesome tourism attractions like the Red Dragon Pirate Cruises, which are suited for kids (and adults) of all ages.

Port Aransas Vacation Rentals Frequently Asked Questions

Companies like Airbnb and Vrbo operate listing websites that enable guests to research and book a vacation rental anywhere in the world. However, once a guest books the property, they need to work directly with either the homeowner, host or property manager any time they have questions or need assistance with booking or during their stay. This can be a challenge for some homeowners, particularly those who live far away from their vacation rental. TurnKey offers a consistent and reliable high-end experience, resulting in strong reviews, repeat bookings and more. TurnKey also has a local Port Aransas team, 24/7 support and in-home technology to ensure an amazing vacation experience in every home, every stay, every time.

Yes! TurnKey has established the best network of professional house cleaners in Port Aransas to ensure that our guests always arrive at an exceptionally clean home. Expect to find beds made with hotel-grade linens and bathrooms stocked with fresh towels and a complimentary starter set of toiletries.

Unlike many vacation rentals in the area, our local team and network of Port Aransas house cleaners guarantee that you’ll never need to clean up at the end of your stay. Sometimes, especially during busy seasons, starting a load of towels or linens can help our house cleaners finish their clean more quickly. We certainly appreciate it when guests do this, but we do not require it.

TurnKey offers 24/7 guest support that you can contact at any time to make your stay more enjoyable. Paired with our local Port Aransas team, we can respond quickly to any in-home help you might need.

All of TurnKey’s Port Aransas vacation rentals are equipped with complimentary, reliable, high-speed WiFi so you can always stay connected.

We’ve installed our proprietary digital locks on all Port Aransas vacation rentals to offer our guests secure, keyless entry. Each code is time-sensitive, so you don’t have to worry about anyone else having access to the home while you’re there. Prior to check-in, you’ll receive arrival instructions with your custom code for easy, seamless access.

TurnKey carefully vets all of our homes, so you can be sure you’ll always stay in a premium vacation rental. We offer some of the most distinctive, unique vacation homes in all of Port Aransas, backed by our exceptional home care and 24/7 guest service.
