Once planted, The Sea Biscuit was creatively renovated and given new life.

The property features a wonderful fenced yard, charcoal grill, outdoor dining set, outdoor shower facility, clothes line and private parking for 2 vehicles.

Staying at The Sea Biscuit gives you the freedom of space and convenience. The neighborhood is a mix of island locals and rental units.

We love our pets and travel with them often, so we happily welcome your well behaved dogs and ask that you use general pet owner manners and monitor any excessive barking and remove all pet waste from the yard prior to your departure. Please note that there is a 3 dog limit and a pet fee applies. This is a NON SMOKING cottage. Smoking is permitted outside only. Port Aransas City Noise Ordinance is enforced. Parking is permitted in parking area only and any vehicle parked in the ally way will be towed at owners expense.

About Heather

The voice of the sea speaks to my soul! Almost 8 years ago, my husband, youngest daughter and I, set out traveling the Texas coastline in search of the perfect retreat. We found Port Aransas and fell in love! With caution to the wind, we left the fast paced city life of Houston and settled here in 'Old Town' Port Aransas. We busy our free time with fabulous fishing, shell hunting, bird watching and lazy beach lounging. Over the years, our family vacations have always involved water and sand...we are so happy to be living our holiday on a daily basis.

Along with our vacation rental, we are also self-employed...the creative side of me loves color, decor and gardening. I get my fix via my ladies boutique that I own here on the island...Saltwater Gypsies and Tippy Toes. My husband is a technology guru and thrives on it...he owns and manages an electronic security company in The Woodlands, TX and also here on the island. We've been married 31 years and have 3 kids...Our oldest daughter is a recent graduate of SCAD and is pursuing her freelance illustration career in Nashville, TN (see some of her work in the cottage)...We have a son who has recently served in the USAF, stationed in CO (with his girlfriend and our totally scrumptious grandson)...and we have our youngest daughter in high school.

Heather purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Heather chose Port Aransas

My husband and I enjoy good food and laid back entertainment. There are some wonderful venues on this little island. You have access to the freshest seafood, diamond-in-the-rough dining experiences, music and entertainment attractions, boutique shopping and our quaint little beach bungalow, right in the heart of Port A.

Perfect Cozy Hideaway

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was just what our family of five plus two dogs needed. This hidden gem has all the amenities you need down to the dog shampoo and biscuits left for our four legged family members. The outdoor shower was our favorite amenity, nothing beats the feeling of the warm breeze hitting you as you shower no matter the time of day!

Thank you to Heather & her husband for creating and sharing this little piece of tranquil heaven.

Sweet, clean, beach get-away

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay and so enjoyed every detail designed for our comfort and enjoyment.! Would be great to have a little pully -rig to hoist (lightweight) stuff to the loft area. Love your eye for detail and simple beauty.

Best Vacation Ever!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place to stay!! The cottage is adorable and comfortable. All your needs are fulfilled! The outdoor shower is just heaven. Close to the beach and walking distance to shopping. Nice size backyard for any size dog! Dogs are as welcome as humans! Two adults and two older children (8 and up) would be comfortable. The kids feel like it's an adventure. I highly recommend Sea Biscuit Cottage!

As cute as it loooks!

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect place for a family of 4. Our girls loved the loft and having their own cool space that we weren't going into:) it was close to the beach and everything else. It is even cuter than the pictures and the outdoor shower was amazing. The owners really have thought of everything to make you comfortable. We are already thinking about when we can go back!
