"The Good Life" Royal Palms - Port Aransas, Texas

Beachfront vacation home for sun and fun
Come enjoy "The Good Life" at our home away from home in beautiful Port Aransas, Texas. This adorable in-town rental is located on popular 11th street within the Royal Palms community, a collection of 26 cottages inspired by Key West. This particular home is one of the few that are located around the shared pool area - you just can't beat walking a few steps out your front door for some fun in the sun. We are also a quick golf cart or car ride to the beach, or a few blocks away (10 min walk) if you aren't taking much gear. Golf cart rental right next door to the community makes it easy to complete your "island" experience.

This 4 BR, 3.5 bath home is perfect for your family getaway to the beach! Once you walk in the front door you will feel like you are on vacation with the beachy decor and lots of natural light in the family room. The property has stained concrete floors on the first floor and hard wood floors on the second story. Knotty pine ceilings give you a tropical feeling. In the front family room we have a flat screen TV, sleeper sofa and two sitting chairs for a relaxed atmosphere to enjoy. Keep walking through the home and you will see a half bathroom and then find yourself in the large eat-in kitchen with dining for 6 and entrance to the fenced in side yard with a charcoal grill. We have all of the essentials for you if you choose to stay in and cook what you catch. Stocked kitchen includes full cooking set, utensils, microwave, coffee maker, toaster, blender and mixer. As a corner unit, we have one of the larger outdoor areas which is fenced in and has 6 chairs and of course the charcoal grill.

Directly off the kitchen is a bedroom with a sleeper loveseat and full bathroom/shower. We also have this room set up as another family room, with a sectional couch and flat screen TV with DVR.

Upstairs are three bedrooms, all with queen size beds, and two bathrooms. Master bedroom has en suite bathroom and flat screen TV. Another full bath is upstairs for the remaining two rooms. This property sleeps a total of 6 (on beds) with 3 queen beds upstairs, but the maximum occupancy is 10 per community HOA rules. We have recently added two sleeper sofas (one queen and one full) to add sleeping downstairs. Also upstairs is the laundry room for any laundry needs after those long days at the beach!

The Good Life is close to restaurants, shopping and Port Aransas nightlife. If you are coming to enjoy the world class fishing of Port A, we are a few miles from the marina. For those with children, Roberts Park (about 2 miles) has a fun playground and the whole family can enjoy walks along the water.

We are pet friendly, but ask that you let us know how many pets you will be traveling with (age, breed, etc) and agree to the pet fee of $50 per pet.

Beach life is the best life and we hope you enjoy your time in Port Aransas at The Good Life cottage!

Wonderful Getaway Place!
This was a wonderful home for our fall getaway with a great location, close enough to the beach to walk. Easy access with a golf cart to the beach and to town as well. The layout of the home (with bedrooms upstairs and a large family room downstairs) was perfect for our group. The decor is lovely and the details to provide what we needed were well done. Communication with the owners was great! Thank you! We will be back!
