About the property

Two story House, 4 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, fully stocked kitchen, pool (Sleeps 10)

Our place is 100% self-managed. Talk directly with the owners!

Hurricane Harvey did a lot of damage across the Texas Coast, including the Lemontwist Beach House in Port Aransas. We survived the howling wind, but did get some flood water damage. We have rebuilt back to pristine condition. The silver lining is we were able to replace most everything in the lower level. That means, new couch, coffee / sofa / end table, all new appliances, kitchen / bathroom cabinets, and a fresh coat of paint! Help support Port Aransas by booking our place or another house in Port Aransas! And when you get there, support the local shops and restaurants.

We invite you to relax, refresh and revive at our brand new beautiful beach vacation home that is close to everything Port Aransas, Texas has to offer. This coastal rental has 4 bedrooms, a welcoming open kitchen/dining/living area, 2.5 bathrooms, and best of all - a screened-in patio that looks right out onto the sparkling new pool. With stained concrete floors, white-washed pine walls and amber pine ceilings – this house is the classic coastal home you’ve been searching for!

Located on the corner of Avenue C and 10th street, this home is within an easy 5 block walk through quiet residential streets to the beach. It’s also within easy walking distance to great restaurants and bars on Beach Street, the IGA Grocery Store, and Island Café on Main Street.

Rented a house in Port A before? Then you know most houses here only have a 2-car driveway. Finding parking for that 3rd or 4th car can be a nightmare (think tickets and/or towing). Not for us! We easily have space for 4 in our extra-wide driveway. And you can park an additional car in garage if you had to. Have a boat? No problem! We've got 32 feet of driveway space to fit most bay boats. Overnight boat parking OK here. Additional overflow parking available across the street in the summer time.

Is tennis your thing? Enjoy table tennis with the ping pong table setup right in our garage. Or if you prefer a full court experience, the high school tennis courts are free and open to the public. And once again, just a block or two from our place!

Rent a fun golf cart or bike and cruise around the island in style! Oh, and park it in our garage for safe keeping. Surf and sun, shopping, fishing and eating – it’s all just around the corner. Tired of the sand and salt, rinse off in the refreshing outdoor shower and then cannon ball into the pool. Still not cooled off? Pull your lounge chair into the shallow 'beach' area of the pool and grab a refreshment. You'll be better in no time!

This is an ideal house for one large family, or two families to split.

The LIVING room is fully furnished with:

About Brent Nations

My wife and I live in Austin TX and have two beautiful girls. We love going to the beach!

Brent Nations purchased this house in 2011

Why Brent Nations chose Port Aransas

I've been going to Port Aransas since I was a kid. We've carried on this tradition through college and now with kids. Our dream of owning a beach house was finally realized in 2011 after much searching (and much saving)!

What makes this house unique

Our house is perfect for two families to split (or one big family with friends). With a stand alone home, you'll have a nice quiet house without those noisy neighbors. And after a long hot fun day at the beach, you'll be able to relax in the shade and swim in the cool refreshing pool steps from the back patio.

It felt like home the moment we walked in

  • 5 of 5

We were very happy with the house. It was spotless, the a/c was cranked, and the beds were very comfortable. Loved the location... walking distance to key “downtown” stops and the grocery store.

Beautiful house with very clean small pool right outside

  • 5 of 5

Perfect for 7-9 people. More than that many adults, start to feel a bit crowded. Great location. Best equipped and maintained house or condo I’ve stayed in over the past 10 years. Great kitchen, comfy furniture, great beds, concrete floors not carpet = clean. Screened in porch. Lovely.

Family time with every detail attended to!

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous property, every comfort of home (and more), walking distance to

great restaurants, but still quiet, nice beach-entrance pool for small children

just out the back door. This property had it all!

Clean and beautiful

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful clean home about 10/15 minutes walk from the beach. Owner sent an awesome property guide that was very detailed prior to our visit. Upon arrival the property was very clean, beautifully presented and large enough for 2 families of 4. Nice small community pool that can be used and screened porch. Very easy and enjoyable stay.

Spacious, pleasant, practical four bedroom house.

  • 5 of 5

The location is great; close to the beach, restaurants, and shopping. The appliances are first class. The cooking pans and utensils are excellent. The furniture and beds are very comfortable. The televisions are large and there is cable assess in every bedroom. The house was clean and well maintained. The owner is readily accessible and willing to help with any problems. The pool is clean and the commons area is well maintained. I highly recommend this property.

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed your stay! As our first guests after our remodel from Hurricane Harvey, we were so happy we were able to get the house put back together in pristine condition for you to enjoy. You all were great guests! We look forward to seeing you again next year.
