About Ernie Carr

In December 2013, Mel & Ernie Carr were blessed to purchase this spectacular vacation property from the original owners, Mr. & Mrs. Nisbet.

Originally living in Spring, Texas for the more than 15 years, along with Mel's Dad, Doyle and 2 little 4-legged ones. Ernie is retired from sales in steel fabrication. He was born and raised in Houston and attended Sam Houston High School. Mel is originally from Alabama - she got here as fast as she could in 1983. She currently has a small local CPA firm in the Houston area. They were married in July 1997, barefooted on the beach in Run-a-way Bay, Jamaica. In the far-distant future their plan is to retire here and spend their last days together on this beach - in this place that God has so generously blessed them with-blessing others along the way.

Ernie Carr purchased this condo in 2013

Everything about the beach condo was lovely. When we didn't want to go to the beach or were tired from a day of running around there were plenty of board games and puzzles to enjoy. The beds slept wonderfully...I've even asked for the brand of the bedding on the king bed because the sheets felt so amazing. We went on a dolphin watching charter boat and had a great time. Captain Moon with Port 'A' Bay Charters was fabulous. Only minor issues: Internet was a little bit weak; water pressure in master bath was a bit low and the 2nd night of our stay there was a lot of noise at the pool (which is right off two of the bedrooms). We loved sitting out two of the balconies (there were 3 total!) and people watching. The unit is on the 2nd floor.

Beautiful condo right on the beach!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing vacation! The condo is beautifully decorated and so clean. We felt like we were the first ones ever there. There is just about everything you need already there. The kitchen was very well stocked and has great dishes, glasses, etc. We had grandparents to teenagers and everyone was so happy with the condo. The condo is so spacious, we never felt crowded, yet we could all be together too. We spent hours on the balconies just taking in the views. The beach is literally steps away and everyone at The Dunes was polite and helpful. Ernie was also very helpful and easy to communicate with. This place is first class and so comfortable! Don't hesitate to rent this Condo for an amazing vacation in Port Aransas! You won't be disappointed!!!!

Our Family stayed in this luxury Condo for 5 days! Ernie and Mel have thought of everything to make your stay fantastic! We made lasting memories, and felt we were right at home entering the front door! I brought my elderly mom who was able to sit on the balcony and watch us in the water as the kids played in the beach. This Condo in Perfect, from the owners who are very professional to the amazing details in the condo, everything was provided for us- We just had to bring ourselves, suitcases, and food- Everything else was there! You will never want to stay anywhere else! Thank you Mel and Ernie! We will be back again next year - Many Blessings!

Amazing Port A Get Away

  • 5 of 5

Don't pass up this amazing condo! Beautifully decorated with amazing balcony beach views, right on the beach. The amenities are far above and beyond what you typically find in a rental, everything you need and more. Walk right out the door and you are on the beach, easy access to restaurants, shopping and the famous Winton's candy store! Rent a golf cart and you never have to drive your car! I won't stay anywhere else!

Beautiful and Beachy

  • 5 of 5

You will not want to leave this condo because it is furnished so beautifully and so comfortable. The owners have thought of everything and provide everything above and beyond most rentals. We only brought clothes, food and beverages and everything else was provided. Great beach views and easy beach access. Loved sitting on the balconies listening to the waves. So many waves! It was so cool to watch the surfers near the pier. The water is so blue and clear and was a pleasure to swim in. The pool was a refreshing place to unwind after spending the day at the beach. Then we would be off on a golf cart in search of a meal. There are so many good restaurants and bars nearby. We went Parasailing with Chute Em Up on really short notice and they were so accommodating. Everyone is so nice. The beach life at rental 661152 is good. My only complaint is my stay was not long enough. Thank you Mel & Ernie!
