Fully Remodeled Home at Lost Colony w/ Ocean View - Steps from Beach

This renovated 3BR/2.5BA home is only steps from the beach and pool at Lost Colony, the only resort community in Port Aransas that sits directly on the closest dunes to the beach. You'll love the amazing ocean views from the two outdoor decks, and you'll be only minutes away from all the Port A shops, restaurants, and attractions.

Two oceanfront decks are perfect for family gatherings or quiet relaxation: a large second-story deck has room for the group to dine and lounge, while a small third-story deck off the master bedroom is a quiet place for morning coffee or evening conversation.

Property is 100 feet from the beach. The boardwalk to the beach is right off the deck and the pool is behind the home.

INSIDE THE HOUSE

Featuring comfortable seating in seashore colors, driftwood accents and a large flat-screen TV, the open living room is ideal for post-beach gatherings. Here, a queen-size Murphy bed folds out to accommodate two additional guests.

Adjacent, a sun-filled dining area features a wooden table with chair and bench seating for six. Open the doors to the patio to let the ocean breeze in, or take your meals outside and enjoy them on a second-story oceanfront deck.

Three bedrooms offer plush bedding and cozy accommodations. An ocean-view third-floor master suite has a king-size bed, abundant natural light and access to a private balcony where two can lounge in the sun.

The second bedroom, also on the third floor, sleeps three with a twin-over-full bunk bed. Just off the living area on the second floor, a third bedroom with bright and cheery décor offers a queen-size bed.

Enjoy the convenience of two and half bathrooms, updated and full of beach chic finishes. Upstairs you’ll find two full bathrooms, one with a tub/shower combination and one with a walk-in shower. On the second story is an additional half bath.

Guest amenities include parking for up to four vehicles and a washer/dryer.

OUR LOCATION

Here, you’re perfectly positioned to make the most of your Lost Colony location. Soak in the sun by the community pool, just steps away, or wander the wooden boardwalk just outside your home that leads right to the sun, surf and sand.

You’re just 10 minutes from downtown’s shopping, dining, nightlife and excitement. Enjoy casual fare in laidback digs at Beach and Station Street Grill or gourmet seafood and steak at Roosevelt’s.

Beautiful… comfortable, quiet, location is perfect….Had everything needed in kitchen, house was very clean upon arrival. Had a few minor issues (Wi-Fi password) but they responded immediately and corrected the issue! Will definitely be back !
Wanda R. Sep 2022
Loved being able to be so close to the beach.
Ann T. Aug 2022
Big house for a big family. Right by the pool and walk way to beach. Big kitchen just excellent. Great views for the beach. We will definitely stay here again next year!
Tonya B. Jun 2022
Loved staying here. Perfect location to the beach and the town of Port A. 15 minutes to local stores and restaurants. Kitchen is well stocked. On the main floor there this a half bath and the door doesn’t work which makes it open to the bedroom. Overall an excellent place to stay and hope to again soon.

Our stay was AMAZING and we really enjoyed the beautiful home. Everything was great! The Turnkey team was very responsive and eager to help in any way! We will stay at this gorgeous home again. It was right on the beach and we LOVED it! We miss the beach already! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

Very nice place and easy access to the beach and a pool. Very nice view from both decks. The only complaint is that the pots and pans were not clean properly. We had to clean them before using. Overall it was a good stay. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
James H. Jun 2021
Love the rental property but the landscape and grass around all the properties and pool were covered in stickers which is not good for little feet. To make it ever better they mowed while we were there and spread the stickers EVERYWHERE. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

Easy process. Great communication. Helpful staff. Would definitely use again. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

The beach house was very clean, and fully furnished with everything we needed for our stay. The house was comfortable, stylish, and just a short walk to the beach. Highly recommend for anyone looking for a family vacation spot. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

We loved the house, but cars are permitted to drive on beach, therefor not suitable for families with young children. We did not know this before arrival so were disappointed. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Douglas Y. Sep 2019
The rental was in a great location. It had a great view of the ocean and was close to the ocean and the pool. The rooms were comfortable, clean and appeared new. Initial response from management was great. When we said we could not find a toaster, a new one was brought out within a few hours. However when both the cable tv and internet service went out, the problem was never resolved. The management company always responded within minutes they would have the local team look into it, but nothing was ever fixed. I would still recommend the property as the primary reason for going is to the beach. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

This home was perfect for our stay of 3 adults and a toddler, amazing views, steps away from both the beach and pool. Just lovely! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

By far our favorite placed to stay in Port Aransas!!! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Mary F. Jul 2019
We have been up and down this coast for over 30 years renting in Port Aransas and South and North Padre. This home was by far the BEST we have stayed in for several reasons! We could see the kids in the pool and see them on the beach from the balcony! The 2 decks were in the shade most of the day and the boardwalk right next to the home and a 3 minute walk to the water!!! Home was VERY clean and had everything equipped in the kitchen you could possibly think of!! Lots of space and enough for our group of 7 and we could of had 3 more people!!! Parking was great with 2 car garage...Property was impeccably clean and pool!!!!! We will be back to the Lost Colony & Unit 16!!! WE LOVED IT AND MY KIDS CRIED WHEN WE LEFT!!!!!

The property looks just like the pictures reveal. It is a wonderful location, ocean view. The deck right off the master bedroom is amazing. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
David Z. Jun 2019
Great place to stay with the ocean and views one way and pool the other. Close enough to town to get anything extra you need. House works perfect. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

We had a great time and the access to the beach was really nice. The house was clean on arrival and had everything we needed. Will be back. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Emily D. Aug 2018
This was quite literally the best place we have ever stayed in Port Aransas! Our family decided this will now be the only place we will stay from now on. The unit was amazing and the communication from Turnkey is stellar. They kept us up to date on everything and even let us know that we could check in early! I cannot recommend this property or Turnkey enough! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Russell K. Aug 2018
We have previously stayed at a property closer to Port Aransas and were somewhat skeptical about this location. It proved to be ideal in every way. The short drive to our favorite restaurants was no problem at all. Beach access is superb and the beach is really much better than closer to town with many fewer people. We will return again and would not hesitate to rent this property or any other at Lost Colony. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

This was our first vacation with our 3 year old twins and we loved the place! It had everything we needed. The very minor complaints I had was that there were some lightbulbs out that my husband changed because it was taking the property management company longer than we expected to send someone. Would like to have had another roll of paper towels and a few more dish rags. These are just simple suggestions from an OCD Mama of toddlers! So nice to be so close to beach with private shower under the house. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

So happy Lost Colony survived the storm. Third time in this condo; 9th year in the complex and all was in great shape. Port A is recovering and amenities are mostly there. In this condo you are so close to the water you don`t have to go to the sand to be on the beach - lovely.

Jill P. Apr 2018
We had a good time. Weather was uncooperative. Next time might stay on the bay to mitigate the windy weather. The house was nice. Furnished well. Nice towels. Only complaint was concerning cookware. It was ok. But if you’re a cook - bring some pans. One really large skillet that was too big for the burners. It was also warped. One other smaller skillet. But everything else was good. Plenty of utensils. Beds were comfortable. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

LC16 has a great location close to the beach, it’s well supplied, beds are comfortable and it’s very quiet, being outside Port A about 6 miles. Enjoyed the beachy decor. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Dominique V. Dec 2017
Clean house and great location of the house on the beach. Thank you for leaving charcoal, plenty of towls and washing powder - and for being so attentive to our needs...if anything perhaps a bit more instructions to where the linen to the fold down-bed are to be found would have been helpful...and to were cleaning stuff like swiffers could be found. In the bedroom by the kitchen a strange smell came from the cupboard - mold. All in all se loved our stay and would gladly visit again! Thank you for a lovely stay!

This property was so much more than the pictures show. Real close to the beach, we could just walk back and fix lunch. Then just sit on the balcony and watch the beach goers. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Melinda H. Jun 2017
Upon arrival I reported sand all over kitchen floor and sent a picture - no response. I also reported a non-functioning pocket door on the half bath which prevented anyone using the bathroom if someone was in the bedroom and making it impossible for any privacy in using the bathroom. This was unacceptable and never got a response from management. I reported a non-functioning television on second day, was put on hold for 20 minutes (with a very nice person that apologized) and said I would be getting a call to let me know when they would be out to fix. Never received a phone call or a repair. I have been staying at Lost Colony for 5 years and was very disappointed with service.

Michael D. Jun 2017
Very nice rental with a view of the beach. Well stocked kitchen, i.e. appliances, cutlery, two sets of dishes, one for the kids,cleaning supplies etc. Negatives; pocket door in the 2nd floor bathroom stuck; you couldn`t close the door, compromised privacy.The sliding door leading to the outdoor balcony on the 3rd floor next to impossible to open. The rail was encrusted with rust. Even after lubricating it with oil; my wife couldn`t get it open. I had to open it. And did I say VERY early check out; the earliest I`ve ever had in close to 50 yrs of renting properties. Housekeeping was literally walking up at 10 AM. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

FIRST OF ALL, EVERYTHING WAS WONDERFUL. COMMUNICATION CONCERNING THE RENTAL WAS TIMELY, ACCURATE, AND HELPFUL. WHEN WE ARRIVED AT LC #16, THE GATE AND CONDO DOOR OPENED WITH THE COMBINATION WE WERE GIVEN,WHAT A RELIEF WHEN EVERYTHING STARTS OUT RIGHT. THEN OF COURSE, `STEPS TO THE OCEAN` WAS EXACTLY AS ADVERTISED, IT`S LOCATION WAS SPECTACULAR, WE LOVED SITTING ON THE DECK WATCHING THE WAVES ROLL IN. THE CONDO WAS CLEAN, AND WELL EQUIPPED WITH ALL THE NECESSITIES FOR A HOME (COOKING UTENZILS, DISHES, BEDDING, ETC.). LOOKING FORWARD TO STAYING NEXT YEAR.

WE STAYED THE MONTH OF FEBRUARY AND HAD A GREAT TIME. ALTHOUGH WE COULDN`T USE THE GARAGE FOR A VEHICLE WE WERE ABLE TO USE IT FOR OUR FISHING STUFF WHICH WAS PERFECT.

THE ONLY THING THAT WOULD BE AN IMPROVEMENT WOULD BE TO HAVE A REGULAR BED INSTEAD OF BUNKBEDS AND ALSO HAVE A TV IN THIS ROOM. WE WOULDN`T EVER NEED BUNKBEDS AND A BED AND A TV WOULD WORK WITH OUR GUESTS MUCH BETTER.

Awesome views of the ocean from living room/kitchen and master bedroom! Walkway (very short walk!) to beach is right next to the house, and so is the community pool! House was very clean and wonderfully updated. Would definitely recommend! Only thing is, there`s not much around the area, a ten min drive to any kind of stores or food. Several places we wanted to try aren`t open for dinner. We brought food for breakfast, lunch and snacks, and the kitchen is well equipped. Would definitely stay here again!

Wonderful beach house, you can see the ocean from the master bedroom...porch is 15 steps from the boardwalk to the ocean. House has been remodeled inside and is very modern and has all of the needed necessities. Great rental for families, sleeps 8 easily.

Heath K. Jun 2015
This was a fantastic experience with this house and area. The home as exactly like the pictures, clean and spotless, with everything described. The area is great with access to the beach very close. Plenty of small extras like a grill and sand toys that made the stay that much better. We`ve already booked this house again for next year!

We loved it! Very clean, comfortable and neatly decorated condo with great views from both balconies/porches and from the living dinning area. The awesome view from the master bedroom (and actually from the bed itself) was an added bonus. We will be back!!!
