    This is a great place! The heated pool was perfect. I like the split floor plan. The bedrooms are comfy, not to mention, beautifully decorated. The service after hours was good. We had to get a propane tank replaced on the grill. The only thing that would have made this place more perfect would have been closer beach access....

    We had 4 families, a total of 14 people stay at this location. The kitchen, dining, living area on the 2nd floor was a perfect place for all of us to hang out while it was raining. The pool was a wonderful addition for the kids and we loved how there was a shallow area for the little ones.
    Note: the downstairs has two bedrooms with a shared bathroom. One room as a queen, and the other is a full with bunk beds.

    Laura V from San Antonio , Texas recommends this vacation rental

    Our family rented this beach house to celebrate our Vow Renewal. We were very pleased with our stay here. There was a lot of space for everyone to hang out together and then a lot of personal space. 2 Bedrooms upstairs, 2 bedrooms downstairs next to the pool. Huge space for entertaining. Short Drive to the beach. House & Pool were very clean. All basic kitchen necessities were already there. The ONLY draw back was 1 of the pull out couches were broken so we were down a bed. The Property managers were extremely helpful and pleaseant to work with.I would definitely recommend staying here. You won't be disappointed.

    The house was perfect for a large group. There were 9 of us, my 2 brothers their spouses and infants, my mother, my brothers in-laws, my wife and I. Not once did we feel cramped. We prepared multiple meals and the kitchen, dining (inside and out) areas were perfect for us all to sit down together and enjoy each other's company but still have space to do our own thing when we wanted to. Having your own pool is also nice. The proximity to Port A's restaurants, fishing, and beaches were great. Definitely coming back!

    Roy R from Corpus Christi, TX recommends this vacation rental

    Sometimes pictures make places look better than they actually are but Sol Paraiso was much much more beautiful in person! The picnic area underneath the deck is more spacious than it looks. Our kids and the adults loved the pool. The rooms were also more spacious than expected. We spent most of our time in the living room-kitchen-dining room area which was just spectacular. When we saw that area, we knew we would love our stay. I highly recommend Sol Paraiso to families with children and to groups with just adults as well. We purchased two rental beach carts which made beach access quick and easy. We stayed for three nights and did not want to leave. God willing, we will be back!!

    We had an awesome time on spring break! The house was very beautiful and clean! It does have a a lot of stairs which was a proble for my husband who had priour ankle surgery, but other than that it was great!! Plenty of space for all the kids that stayed including mine. If there was an issue all you have to do is call the office and they took care of it immediately. The staff was very friendly and accommodating.

    We stayed with three families here and loved the house and pool. Close to the beach. The check in process was easy and everyone was very nice and helpful. A few suggestions to make it even better-more comfortable seating outside, beach towels, and some type of guest info book with where to access the beach, places to eat, fun things to do. The beds were very comfortable and house was clean and well organized. Would give it thumbs up for sure!

    The owners of this house truly thought of everything when they designed this house as a vacation rental. The landscaping was fabulous. The house was very clean and very spacious. The pool was very easy for non-swimmers, my 76 year old family member was even able to enjoy it! The pool was perfect for every age group. We loved that the house was pet friendly! We loved how there was a shower at the front door and at the back door placed outside for convenience. The house really accommodates 14 people all around! Not only was there enough seating for all of us inside, but outside as well. The house was so perfect that we will be staying again!

    We had a great week! The only disappointment was not having a pantry available for our food for a week and the outdoor chairs were rusty. We also wished that we had control of the pool light. Over all we had a wonderful time!

    • Manager Responded on 9/11/2014

      Owners Response Thank you for choosing our home for your vacation. Your satisfaction is very important to us. We are desperately looking for chairs to replace the rusted ones....end of season makes this a hard task. Since you are the 2nd person to say we needed pantry space, we will buy a bakers rack for the kitchen. So sorry about the pool light, if we would have known we would have sent our pool man over to adjust it. Hope you will give us another try. Sincerely, Larry and Debra Nichols

    We loved this house. It was perfect for us. We had a blast around the pool area. The house was roomy and very comfortable. The only draw back was the kitchen does not have much storage if you are bringing a lot of your own food for cooking but we made it work. We all decided that this is the house we want for next year. We have been making this trip for over 20 years together and decided this is one of our favorites.

    This house was perfect for our family of seven adults and three kids. We used the swimming pool every day. It is beautiful and we had great family fun. I enjoyed the covered porches as I am not a sun person. The kitchen was well stocked and everything was labeled. (Thank you very much). We loved the huge dining table and bar as we were able to share meals together. The living area was spacious and comfortable. There were tv's in every room which kept the kids happy. My only negative comment would be that the wifi was down all week. Several of the adults on our trip needed to keep connected to jobs and it was not possible at the house. They had to go other places on the island.
    We have been going to Port Aransas as a family for 15 years and this house was by far the best place we have ever stayed. 5
