Room PictureWelcome to Once Upon a Tide

ID 280133

“Once Upon a Tide” is a comfortable retreat for two families.  The house sleeps 8-10.  It is walking distance to the beach, shopping, restaurants, Horace Caldwell Pier (fishing), and even several churches.  There is plenty of room to park your boat, golf cart, bicycles, tricycles, roller skates, skateboards, kayaks, or anything else you want to bring to enjoy on the Texas Riviera! 

We purchased the original 1975 cottage in 2011 after falling in love with Old Town Port Aransas.  We managed to squeeze into the small cottage with friends and family for several years and then said, “enough is enough!”  In 2014, we added an entire master suite large enough for a whole family, a half bath, a laundry room, and expanded the kitchen for a large table to gather around for food, fun, and fellowship.
