About this listing

**Please note that any listing of this house on Craigslist is fraudulent. ** Welcome to the Blue Roost! Our beach house has everything you would need for a vacation here - comfortable beds with cool and crisp linens, fluffy bathroom towels, open shelves in the kitchen stocked to feed friends and family, beach toys and chairs for days in the sun. Bring your food and you are good to go. As our guests say in our reviews, the "house is very comfortable and plenty of room for us and guests aged 5 months to grandparents. Gated porch is wonderful for kids, dogs and early morning coffee. Love the walk to the beach on the boardwalk." Year round Port Aransas has something for everyone! There is abundant sun, surf and sand if you just want to "get away from it all." If you are lucky, watch a turtle hatchling release at the Padre Island National Seashore during the summer. Port A is THE place for fishing - in the bay, offshore or from the jetties - you are sure to go home with some fish tales! For the nature lover, the birds here are incredible - seeing a squadron of Pelicans dive for their meals, or the pink of Roseate Spoonbills never gets old for us! If you want to go shelling on a secluded island, check out San Jose Island - accessible by ferry from Port A For the art lover - the Port Aransas Art Center holds classes and has gorgeous local art available for purchase. Relaxing on the beach or adventuring in town, you won't be board in Port Aransas! This charming beach house gives you the best of both worlds - close to the beach and to town. The sand is less than 5 minutes away via the private La Playa neighborhood boardwalk and our place is your best location for the yearly SandFest event located right across the boardwalk on the beach. The Blue Roost is a three bedroom, two bathroom beach house that sleeps up to 10 adults and up to 12 total if you have kids. It is comfortable enough for a quiet stay for two and large enough for a vacation with the extended family. Great for girls getaways, fishing excursions and family trips. As our guest at the Blue Roost (an owner managed property) you will have easy access to the house via your personal lock code - which means no coordinating schedules to pick up/drop off keys and no danger of losing keys at the beach! Kitchen/Dining This beach house has a large, fully equipped kitchen that holds everything you need to feed friends and family. The beautiful blue tile island in the kitchen is the heart of the house. The two dining room tables seat 10 with an additional three seats at the kitchen island. For morning coffee or al fresco dining, just outside the kitchen the covered sitting area is perfect for 5 with adirondack chairs around the side deck for 4 more. Living Room The cozy living room has two full sized slip covered Pottery Barn sofas. Slip covers are new! If you need to stay in touch with the outside world, access the wifi throughout the house and on the deck. Use the new flat screen TV to see DVDs, Directv (HD) and Netflix when you want to take a break from the sun. Bedrooms The large master bedroom downstairs has a king bed and the equally large guest room across the hall has two queen beds. The downstairs bedrooms share a bathroom. The upstairs, called the Seven Dwarfs room by my kids, is a fabulous 37-foot-long bedroom with one queen bed, 4 twin beds and a bathroom. All bedrooms are equipped with an HD DirecTV. Sleeps 10 adults, beds for 12 if you have kids. All bedding and bath towels are provided. No wimpy towels here! Two Levels of Decks The upper deck is a great area to work on a tan while enjoying a lovely birds eye and partial view of the Gulf. When you've had enough sun, lounge on the covered lower deck and enjoy the balmy breezes and sounds of the sea. Both decks have gates at the steps, providing a secure area for small children or pets. Other amenities include: * Plenty of covered parking * Outdoor shower and hose to rinse off the sand * Playhouse and sand toys for the kids * Basketball hoop - bring a basketball! * Washer/dryer The Blue Roost is dog friendly. Well behaved dogs are allowed but must be crated inside when unattended. Special Rate info: Buy 6 nights, get the 7th free! We have special monthly rates ($2200) for Winter Texans and Snowbirds.

We loved staying at The Blue Roost! The house was very clean and we had just about everything we needed to make our family vacation just right. The owners were very nice, prompt and easy to work with. We appreciated the lock on the front door that was coded so we did not have to keep up with a set of keys and each in our party could get in when needed. We loved being able to bring our dog with not a lot of hassle or fees. We appreciated that very much and Ody loved being there as well. The house is a very easy walk to the beach in a quiet neighborhood. We would love to come back in the summer when we could use the beach more. Can't say enough good things about the ease of the whole booking and payment process as well as getting in the house. Maggie was very nice and answered all of our questions promptly. The written material she provided was very much appreciated. Thank you so much for the use of your lovely home.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The accommodation was clean, and comfortable. We (3 adults, 2 teens) had plenty of room to spread out among the spacious rooms, 2 floor levels and multiple balconies. The TV area was cozy; we brought a small string of Christmas lights to lay out for holiday decoration...perfect lighting as we sat and talked. The kitchen was well equipped allowing for the late nite cookie bake. We visited during the Christmas break and the neighborhood was quiet. We rented a golf cart for the boys to ride around the street circle, on the beach and into Port "A". That will be a memory the boys will talk about for years! We are making plans to visit again.

This home was perfect for our family getaway. There was plenty of room for 6 adults and a dog. The place was clean with a friendly feel. The family photos are a nice personal touch. The kitchen was very well stocked with just about any you might need. I really liked the location. It was close to the beach and to town, but not too close to either. We loved the porch with locking gates. The owners were very friendly and helpful. I would not hesitate to recommend this property and we all agreed that we would like to come back again next year.

December 2016

Three things to call out as simply excellent. The ability to open the doors in several areas to smell and feel the fresh air; the open kitchen; and having our beloved dogs with us. Everything we needed to be "together" and yet have smaller activities going on. Clean, neat, and all amenities where available INCLUDING Netflix! My daughter had an area where she could work remotely. Added to all of this, the weather made this a perfect holiday get away. Thank you so much Maggie and Bruce for our wonderful Thanksgiving retreat that felt like home for a week.

December 2016

It was just the two of us and more house then we really needed but the location to the beach was perfect. I've stayed at many places in Port A and this is the best by far for comfort, location and proximity to the beach with the boardwalk just steps from your door.
