About Bianca Boutell

We live in Austin, Texas and found ourselves escaping to Port Aransas every chance we got. Since we enjoy it so much, it made sense to purchase our own piece of Paradise! Once we saw this unit, the view sold us and the pictures don't really do it justice. We are so pleased to be able to share our paradise with you and know you will enjoy it as much as we do!

Bianca Boutell purchased this studio in 2013

Why Bianca Boutell chose Texas Gulf Coast

We looked all over the island to find a condo that fit our needs. The view, private balcony and immaculate grounds primarily attracted us to this unit/complex. While looking at other complex surroundings, it was clear the cleanliness and proximity to the beach is by far superior at Island Retreat, in comparison to other complexes on the Island. I as well like the close proximity to town, but the feel of complete privacy and quiet in the unit. Once we saw this, it was an easy and immediate decision to purchase!

What makes this studio unique

Again, the view, private balcony and complex grounds make this property unique. Having a full kitchen at your disposal appealed to me as well. I love to cook and it also saves money on dining out!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Daughter and her family loved the rental and had a super time while in Port Aransas!! it was their first time to Port A and they just raved over the island community and particularly the beachfront accommodations. They said they were definitely pleased with the accommodations, the cleanliness and loved the fact they could walk to the beach!! Thank you for providing such a nice place for them as I am sure they will be returning to Port A in the future. Thank you again and have a great week!!

outstanding property!

  • 5 of 5

What a nice surprise to spend a few days in an updated, clean, beach property with many amenities and the best view ever! Still walking distance to shops and restaurants, this property has a short walk to the beach. I would book this property again and again!

Super condo at the beach!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here in November. Great getaway at Port Standard. Unit was immaculate and very well maintained. Easy access to everything in town and a five minute walk across the dunes to the beach. Beautiful ocean view especially having morning coffee on the patio. Newer LG appliances and all the pots,pans and dishes you'll need. Since it was still 75 degrees we swam in the enormous, crystal clean pool. Highest recommendation. We will stay here again!

Clean, comfortable and every thing we needed.

  • 5 of 5

The location in proximity to the beach was perfect! View from balcony was as well. The grounds were very well taken care of. Condo was everything as advertised, no surprises which as great! Very nicely remodeled. Natalie very helpful to us. I may return one day. BTW, the beaches are clean... Love port A, most people are continually in a good mood, hey it's an island. Enjoyed being on island time.

Great vacation spot, already planning our next trip!

  • 5 of 5

This was the second time we stayed in this unit and it was just a good the second time around! We typically wait for the Summer rush to calm down and this year was no different. We felt like we had the beach to ourselves. When we weren't on the sand we were on the deck gazing at the amazing view. The location is perfect being very close to the ferry and an easy drive into Corpus. The kitchen is stocked with everything you could possibly need to cook a full meal (which is typically our preference). We had the added bonus of also being able to book the room next door (both units owned by the same owner) so we could vacation with our family friends. The amenities in both units exceed expectations, especially in the area of customer service. The owners of these units really go above and beyond to accommodate guests, and that personal touch is very much appreciated by my family! We are already looking at dates for our 2017 return trip!

A Repeater!

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely condo; there were just two of us, and it was very comfortable. The kitchen is well stocked (even though we didn't do much cooking) and has very nice appliances including dishwasher. The bathroom is nice and has a large walk-in shower, which we liked. The owner, Bianca, called to make sure everything was okay; I don't think we've had that happen before. The management was cordial and came by every day to see if we needed clean towels, etc. We travel off-season and practically had the beach to ourselves! I must say, though that a highlight for this unit is the balcony. The sunrises are spectacular, majestic and can be enjoyed from the balcony. We got stunning photos of sunrises with the boats in the distance and the pelicans flying by. We liked being so close to the boardwalk. I could go on...we will be going back! This unit has to be the best bargain on the island!
