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 Port Aransas

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!!

We had a relaxing vacation

  • 4 of 5

Our stay was quiet and peaceful even though there was construction going on in the area.

Port Aransas is working its way back from damage from Hurricane Harvey. Our unit 132 is quite relaxing with the view over the Gulf even though the weather didn't permit as often as we would of liked. That's weather! The room was clean as usual and ready for occupancy.

Perfect Winter Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This condo was wonderful. We were getting worried that we would not be able to find a place last minute due to lots of properties being renovated from the hurricane but this place is perfect. My husband and I take a yearly trip to Port A around New Years last year on a sort of honeymoon and this year as a one year anniversary trip. We were super bummed that the condo we had on our honeymoon was going through repairs. This condo was a floor and a door over from where we stayed on our honeymoon and it did not disappoint. It was well stocked with everything that was needed. Plenty of clean towels, toilet paper, dish soap, paper towels. It really was great. The owners or managers were really responsive to any questions that we had. It was a comfortable little getaway with perfect views of the ocean. We could enjoy the beach without getting out in the cold. Our stay was simply wonderful.

Owner's Response: We are so happy to have been able to accommodate you for your yearly stay in Port A! Thank you for the kind words. We try to ensure that the condo is supplied with everything needed to provide a pleasant stay. You were awesome guests and we welcome you for future getaways!
