Palmilla Resort Home | Pool, Patio & Boardwalk to Beach | Near Downtown

This newly built 3BR/3.5BA home features two balconies and a BBQ grill. Enjoy the amenities of Palmilla Beach Resort, including a pool, boardwalk to the beach, and on-site dining.

Contemporary furnishings, high-end finishes, exposed-beam vaulted ceilings, and vibrant beach colors will make your family or group feel immediately relaxed.

You’re located right on the golf course and a 5-minute walk from the Black Marlin Grill. For more dining and entertainment options, head to nearby Port Aransas and Schlitterbahn waterpark.


After a day at the beach, cool off in the living room. Kick back on the plush sofa (which converts to a queen sleeper sofa) or on the love seat. Later, watch a movie on the 70” flat-screen TV.

The gourmet kitchen features a gas range and a large island with two barstools. Cook a tasty meal, and then gather at the dining table for eight. Six more can pull stools up to the counter, or head out to the balcony, where you’ll find seating for five.

In the evenings, relax on the two Adirondack chairs on the front balcony. Later, gather on the second balcony with seating for five -- fire up the grill for a seafood feast, and enjoy a meal paired with views of the beautifully landscaped resort.

When it’s time for bed, guests staying in the first-floor master bedroom will have a king bed and an en-suite bathroom with a double vanity and a walk-in shower. A second bedroom has a twin-over-king bunk, while the third bedroom has a twin-over-queen bunk. Both have en-suite bathrooms with tub/shower combinations. And every bedroom has a 48” flat-screen TV.


Visit the Guest Services pavilion at Palmilla to receive VIP wristbands that allow access to resort amenities. During the summer, poolside cabanas, golf carts, beach chairs, and umbrellas are available to rent via Guest Services. Enjoy a designated area at the beach with air-conditioned bathrooms and food services.

For on-site dining, you’ll find the exquisite Black Marlin Seaside Grill, REDS Patio Bar, and the Agave Poolside Cantina.

The newly redesigned 9-hole course incorporates the best of true links-style play and winds its way throughout the Palmilla Beach Resort Community. Palmilla Beach challenges golfers of any skill level with ocean breezes, lush fairways lined with native grasses and challenging greens. With a variety of tee boxes, the course will fit any player's current game.

Amenities include a second refrigerator on the first level -- perfect for storing grilling foods and beverages -- and a washer/dryer. There is parking for three cars in the driveway, plus additional street parking.

You’ll also enjoy an outdoor common area with patio tables and gas fire pit, which is shared with other homes.

Trailers/boats are not permitted on-site; however, nearby parking is available.

Upon arrival this rental was exactly what we were looking for. It had all of the comforts of home and only a short distance to the beach. I highly recommend it.

Sand Trap is a beautiful home. Everything in the house met or exceeded expectations. The house was decorated very nicely and the kitchen was well-stocked with utensils, pots/pans, etc. In terms of location, the house is located near the entrance to the community and is a very short walk or golf cart ride to the pool and the beach. ***This was our first time staying at Palmilla. I can't wait to see how the community will look in a few years once it has been built up. There is a ton of construction going on in there right now but it didn't subtract from the beauty of the place in any way. We'll be back!

We had the best time at this lovely beach home. It was spacious, clean, and loved all the balconies. They have just about anything you need to cook a great meal too - which was a plus! Close to the pool and beach. Palmilla was a great distance from Port A restaurants and loved the gas fireplace outside.
