Port Aransas Covid-19 Update - We are OPEN !!!
UPDATE - 5/8/2020 - As per the Governor of Texas issued executive order Swimming Pools are permitted to open at 25% Capacity.
Most properties that have a shared swimming pool have decided to open under these rules and if you use the pool you must practice social distancing, no gatherings of people will be allowed in the pool areas.
At the moment all the pools at our properties are open
PLEASE CONTINUE TO SOCIAL DISTANCE AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE
We are taking reservations as normal at this time.
Thank you for your continued support and we hope to see you all SOON. - Melissa and Julian

You can, and we cant wait to welcome you. We are taking reservations as normal right now.
From what we understand most things in Port Aransas will be open, some may be restricted under the Governor's declaration. Bars and Gym's for example will still be closed and restaurants although now allowed to have people dine inside will only be permitted to have a small number of guests inside. It would be best to call the business ahead to find out if they are open, and, if they have limitations. Pools are open again but limited to 25% of capacity, social distancing must be used so no gatherings of people in the pool area or pool. It is the decision of the HOA or property owners if a pool is to be opened and we have no control over this decision.
YES, The Beach is open. PLEASE keep your social distancing in mind even when at the Beach.
As you may know, we only have 1 grocery store here in town so thats a hard one to predict. Bringing food with you is the answer to the problem and will make sure you have what you need. There are plenty of stores in Corpus Christi and other places but its impossible for us to know what those stores are going to be like when you are due to travel. If in doubt, bring it with you. There are still shortages of some items and we expect that to continue, especially as we get into the busier months in Port Aransas and the surrounding area.
We are certain that all the restaurants are going to do their best to still serve you the food you love, they need to stay open to survive, they need to sell food to pay wages. So, you can expect that Port Aransas determination is going to keep them open. Most of them had a great practice run with Hurricane Harvey. Many have curbside pickup and have added menu items more suited to take out than dine in. From May 1st the ones that choose to do so may allow guests to once again dine inside, there will be limitations on how many they are allowing in at any one time though. Best to call them and see when and how they are open.
No, we want to help everyone to feel as safe as possible and will be making sure that on the day of arrival you do not have to have close contact with anyone. You wont have to see anyone face to face. We expect this to be the way we will do things for the rest of the year at least. It's going to be a new thing for us so please be patient, if you need to pay cash we will figure something out.
In addition to the 'no contact check-in' we have updated our cleaning policies to be above and beyond the guidelines issued by the CDC. All chemicals we use are approved and our house keepers are 'double cleaning' all commonly touched areas such as door handles, kitchen surfaces, toilets etc. We are trying our very best to make sure that you can practice safe social distancing. From the start of your stay with us, until you check out no one from our staff will need to be in physical contact with you. If you have maintenance issues during your stay we will also work with you to ensure the least contact with another human we can.
If you just decide not to come then our standard cancellation policies still apply.
We know the situation is constantly changing and if the government, city or other authority makes it so you can not legally fulfill your reservation then we will work with you on re-scheduling your stay, or, if you are outside of your cancellation period still then you can cancel or move your stay according to our terms and conditions.
You can help by keeping the social distancing going. Keep your distance from people who you didn't travel here with, that goes for the common areas that some properties may have such as swimming pools, or BBQ area's. Find a quiet spot on the Beach and keep the amount of people you have a in group at the Beach to a minimum. Wear a mask in public when you are near to people. And, above all. WASH YOUR HANDS every chance you get.
What we think is that if you follow all the guidelines set forth by the government and the CDC then Port Aransas and, especially, its Beaches are an excellent option for getting some much needed vacation time and social distancing. Why ? You load up the car with you and some food and drink, you drive to the property you have rented, you drive from there to the beach and back each day, then you drive home when you check out. The amount of social distancing can be controlled by you, if you don't want to go near anyone else then you can do that if you bring everything you need with you. We have miles and miles of Beach available and it may mean you have to drive that little bit further to find your own space but there will be space.
We know that a Port Aransas Vacation can be expensive, with that being said, we want to do everything we can to make your stay more affordable. We do this by keeping our rates as low as we can and not charging you extra fees. Most of the other companies charge cleaning fees, booking fees, fee fees........ the list goes on. If you book at stayinporta.com with Beachcomber Vacation Rentals then we promise we wont do that.
The only extra charges you will have to pay are TAX (13%) and if you bring a Dog to a pet friendly property, there will be a charge for that.
