Loved our stay here! Beautiful site with a view of the dunes and the water right off the back porch, which was private and had plenty of seats. Walked right down to the beach several times a day. Well supplied kitchen. Very clean and nicely furnished. Comfortable beds. We will come back!

Great Condo for Staying In Port Aransas!

This condo'a balcony, overlooking the Gulf is in a great location in Port A! It's starting to show a little wear and tear, but is still in good shape! Our only real complaint is that the wifi is weak and cuts in and out. Other than that, it good!

Another great trip!

Love not having to check in just text the code and text when leaving. 2nd time in this condo, clean and comfortable. Only complaint is the tvs and many remotes (main tv worked the first night then was all pink lines the rest and the bedroom tv was plugged into a bad outlet and one of the remotes had dead batteries) But hey I didn't stay here to watch tv.

This was our 2nd year staying here and we really enjoy the property and the short walk to the beach. The only issue I had was that we had no broom to keep the floor swept up from the sand, only 2 mops. But we always have a great time here and will definitely be back next year.

We had a great vacation here! All the essentials were taken care of like A/C, fridge, beds. There were just a few inconveniences though. The couch cushions were scratchy and slid off the base. The kitchen was a little cramped and had no room for our groceries, but it was stocked with all the cookware and utensils we needed. Loved the balcony view with plenty of chairs and tables! While I can appreciate that the front door locks with a key pad I wish it could be activated when locked and deactivated when unlocked. Speaking of locks, the bathroom door did not have a lock at all, which we did not like. The bedrooms were exactly what we needed to sleep 6 adults comfortably. Overall great vacation!

Lovely stay

This was a great place. The location to the beach is awesome. We did have to buy our own dish soap and they could have used an extra blanket (there were more than enough extra pillows!). It was clean with great amenities. We are return clients and will definitely be returning again! Highly recommend!

2nd time staying in IR157 and it was wonderful both times. We had a couple a small issues but nothing we had to deal with to call in for help as I knew they would take care of before the next renters checked in. One of the blinds wouldn't close and the stick on next to the stove for protection kept coming loose. We will definitely be using this same rental again in the future. Life is Paradise is on top of getting the code to you in time and on top of it when you need help. Thank you for another peaceful and relaxing stay.

Great a place to stay.

The condo was nice and cozy. We enjoyed our Thanksgiving week there. We will definitely return again. I'm not sure were to report issues of the condo but the 2nd bathroom that is attached to the 2nd bedroom has a sink drainage issue. The water is not draining and fills up the sink. Everything else worked properly. Thanks for everything! Happy Holidays and New Year!

Manager's Response

Thanks so much for your review and for letting us know about the clogged drain. We will have maintenance take care of that. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and we look forward to your return to the Island.

Great beachy condo

August 2022

Everything was clean and ready for us when we got there. We enjoyed our stay. It was a short walk to the beach and a pretty view on the patio. The only problem we encountered was that there was no salt and pepper and definitely bring you own ice if you have more than a couple people. Life in paradise is a great company. We had to cancel at the beginning of the summer but they were understanding and really helpful with rescheduling. Anytime I had to contact their office they quickly responded and I didn’t have to sit on hold forever. Their prices are comparable to the rest of the islands hotels and rentals and sometimes even better. I will be using them every time I visit Port Aransas.

Manager's Response

Thank you for the 5-star review!  We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and the property was a convenient location!  Come back and stay with us again soon!

Enjoyed our stay very much. Unit was clean and comfortable. Thank you! One bedroom's television did not work because the DVR was missing. We reported this to the Life in Paradise office. We did not ask that the problem be fixed; we just did not want the missing DVR blamed on us. We watched television on the living room television.
