Please check the availability calendar before calling. If a date is marked in red that means it is not available. We keep our calendar up to date so if there is a cancellation the calendar will show it is available.

Island Retreat is a great place to spend time with family and friends. This smoke-free condominium is just a short boardwalk away from the beach.

Computers with Internet Access available in the office. Wi-Fi available in the condo.

Trolley stops at the property.

The beach is awesome for playing with the kids, acting like a kid yourself, enjoying the scenery, taking a long stroll, a morning jog, reading a book, or delighting in the last rays of a gorgeous sunset. If you do not feel like getting sandy at the beach relax by one of the two pools or play some tennis, volleyball, shuffleboard or basketball. Or simply treasure pushing your child in a swing on the playground as they giggle with delight.

Port Aransas has some great restaurants for when you feel like eating out (or you did not have any luck fishing). If you feel like exploring there are plenty of options - scuba diving, snorkeling, sailing, deep-sea fishing, Aransas Wildlife Refuge and Whooping Crane Habitat or the beach!

Awesome place for a family

  • 5 of 5

We cook a lot so we really enjoyed the kitchen. Although the glass stovetop was cracked it didn't keep us from cooking!

The amount of cookware was awesome!

Even though the elevator didn't go to the 2nd floor we were always able to park in front of the unit and walk up a short flight of steps to the door.

The laundry house is right next to the pool so it was convenient to do laundry and swim at he same time.

Oh and the walk to the beach was about 5 minutes over the boardwalk. Very convenient!!

I would highly recommend this unit for families with children that need their own bedrooms. It was great!

Wonderful experience!

  • 5 of 5

This is the second consecutive year that we (all 8 of us) have stayed in the EXACT same unit!! It felt like home! Hope we get to use this same one next year. The walk to the beach is so close and easy to do!! Would have liked a few more bath towels, but it worked. Want a sharper knife to use in the kitchen, but again, it worked. We had a hot water problem one evening and within a few minutes, the front office had someone there and Boom, hot water. The employee even came back and checked on us the next day. I have nothing but positive comments!!! Thank you for a wonderful vacation!!

Great place, super close to the beach!

  • 4 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay at the Island Retreat condo. The best feature is the easy walk to the beach. Close enough to go back for lunch or bathroom breaks. The kitchen is very well stocked--should cover most anything you might have forgotten. Our family of six was very comfortable in the space. The complex is very well-maintained. We used the pool, the laundry room and communal grill in the park area. All very clean and cared for. I would have rated higher but the decor in the condo is rather plain, and the condos themselves are painted a rather blah tone. However, I would rank beach proximity over decor anyday.

Port A accommodation

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I recently finished a month's stay at Port A. This was our seventh visit to Mustang Island. This accommodation is, by far, the nicest place we have stayed at in seven years. The Gulf view from this second story unit is unobstructed and the covered deck has a wall creating privacy. The unit itself is spacious, immaculately clean and tastefully decorated. The kitchen was well stocked with everything for enjoying meals in, and all the appliances seemed fairly new and functioned properly. Upon arrival the garbage disposal was broken and upon notification, the owner had it replaced in short order. The services and attention to detail were excellent. It is easy making contact with the owner if necessary, response time was practically immediate.

The bedding is luxurious! The 200 ct. cotton sheets were a real treat that anyone who does not enjoy sleeping on poly blends (plastic) will appreciate. The blankets were just as plush and comfortable as were the pillow top matresses. The two bathrooms were convenient. The outdoor shower prevented us from bringing sand and salt water into the apartment. What we enjoyed while we were at Port A was the beach and gulf swimming, fishing, birding, and sightseeing. We packed activities in everyday and still feel we could have seen more if we had stayed longer than a month. We were close enough to downtown to walk to restaurants and shops, but it's around a two mile walk. Thus we want to return to this particular unit and stay longer next year. We would recommend this accommodation to individuals and families who would enjoy the peace, quiet and the ambiance of this getaway.

We have stayed at lots of different properties over the years and we chose this one because it was less expensive. We knew we would be compromising a few things. Overall we were satisfied for what we paid. There is a fair view of the gulf but the beach is not visible. Perhaps one floor up might have a beach view. The room was seemingly clean but we spotted a few roaches. The playground area and grills are right out the front door with a view from the kitchen window. The kitchen was very well stocked with great mugs and fun bowls. We cooked and baked and had everything we needed except pot holders. The beds were comfortable and there was a great amount of storage if someone wanted to stay long term. The boardwalk to the beach was easy and it is on the section of beach that has parking at back and blocks cars from driving where you are playing. The door has a keyless entry which was a huge plus in letting our older kids come and go from the beach. The property was nice with appropriate landscaping, clean pool and freshly painted picnic tables and lots of security. There are even tennis courts all only a short walk from this unit.

First glam baby vacation

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location for my first vacation with my glam baby. It was an easy walk to the beach and the unit was spacious enough for my glam babies needs. We created wonderful memories of our first vacation.
