About Natalie and Patrick Maxwell

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!

Natalie and Patrick Maxwell purchased this studio in 2013

Why Natalie and Patrick Maxwell 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!!

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the place,it has everything you need including the great view and great location. It's very close to beach,and you can relax on the balcony and watch the pelicans and seagulls. Kitchen had everything we needed to cook,lot's of towel in the shower. It's a really cozy place to stay for a great price. Definitely recommended. Natalie,thank you so much! I know I wasn't very talkative when you called us,because I was always driving and concentrated on the road.

Always a wonderful time!!!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time staying at Natalie's property, and just like the first time, our trip was wonderful!! The condo is exactly as pictured and has every amenity you could think of. We are so grateful to have a really nice place to stay without breaking the bank! Both times, Natalie called to check on us, make sure we got to the resort without problem, and made sure everything was working as it should. They are excellent hosts and we won't ever stay anywhere else! Natalie, thank you for a great stay... again!

Great weekend stay

  • 5 of 5

My daughters and I stayed in this nicely decorated condo for a long Easter weekend. The room is just as discribed and was very close to the beach. You can see it right from the balcony. They were setting up for sandfest so we may try and come back during that time next year. I will definitely stay here on my next weekend trip here. Being able to have our dog stay with us was a plus. The beach is defiantly pet friendly

Happy Vacationers

  • 4 of 5

We stayed one month and enjoyed all the time we were at Natalie's condo. It is very clean, has modern appliances and stocked with kitchen utensils for cooking. It is just a short walk to the beach. There is plenty to do in Port Aransas and the walks on the beach are awesome. Natalie and Patrick were very accommodating and willing to answer all questions in a timely manner. The best part is watching the sunrise over the ocean from the balcony puts a great start on the day. Joe and Connie
