About this property

"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!

    Fantastic time at the Good Life!

    The booking experience was seamless and the communication with the owners was great throughout. Location was perfect, house was clean, and the air conditioner worked great!! We’ll certainly keep it in mind for next time! Thanks again!

    5/5 Excellent

      Great place to stay -great location-it feels like home away from home -2nd time staying here 😊

      Hassle free - requested an early checkin & they were able to accommodate the request which was greatly appreciated.

      5/5 Excellent

        Very responsive and great location!

        Cliff and Erica are very responsive. We had no need to contact them during our stay, but I had a few questions before arrival, they got back to me very quickly. The house has a great kitchen and everything you could need. This seems to be hard to find in vacation rentals. We look forward to booking the property again.

        5/5 Excellent

          Excellent accommodations and host

          We could not of been happier with our 3 night stay at “good life”. I brought my 16 year old son, two of his friends and our black lab down to port a for fishing weekend. Good life is a newer stand alone house in small community. It had everything we needed and provided the boys with all the room they needed to hang out (media room and bedrooms) while the main living room gave me space to read or watch TV. More importantly, the house is one of the few homes that had extra parking for boat trailer and is close enough for quick access by car to beach for morning dog walks and evening fire. Less than 5 minute drive to city boat launch, ferry and downtown restaurants. Definitely will stay again. Cliff was very responsive and helpful with fishing tips

          5/5 Excellent

            Nice stay & location!

            My family and I enjoyed our time at "The Good Life" home. It was perfect for the 6 of us and we did not feel cramped at all and having 3 1/2 bathrooms was great. The owners were very quick to respond to our questions and needs. Thanks for everything!
