About Madelyn Uresti
I grew up in Corpus Christi, Texas. I loved spending time on the nearby beaches gazing at the beautiful sunsets over the water and just digging my toes in the wet sand. Much of my time growing up was spent in acivities that took place near/or on the water. After moving to Austin, Texas I still longed to be close to the water/beach. Buying this unique vacation cottage has given our extra large family a wonderful opporatunity to continue to enjoy many more happy times in Port Aransas. My husband is an avid fisherman as are many of our children and grandchildren. He plans fishing trips to Port Aransas quite often. He grew up in Houston and he and his family loved to come there for fishing vacations. He still remembers traveling on the wooden plank road that came into Port Aransas from Aransas Pass. Needless to say, he has been coming there for a very long time. It holds a special place in our heart and I feel if you will come to Port Aransas and stay at the 'Coral Cottage' and also take advantage of using the Boathouse you to will also be able to share that same feeling.
Why Madelyn Uresti chose Port Aransas
One of the main reasons we bought in Port Aransas, Texas is that we love being near the water and we love Port Aransas. Our family has spent many wonderful vacations there and feel that there is no place like it. Great fun for people of all ages. Our grown children and their families have strong ties and fond memories of beach vacations with their own families and friends. We all look farward to many more happy times in that SPECIAL,WONDERFUL AND FUN TOWN.

Nice home for family vacation
Cute house which was large enough to house our family 9. Loved being close to the restaurants and shops. Unfortunately, however there was a bar next door that played loud music until 1am each night. Other than that, we really enjoyed our stay.
Thank you, Madelyn
Home close to the action and the beach.
Our visit in Port Aransas was from Friday to Sunday. We had 9 people total in our party. What we liked most about the Coral Cottage was how close it was to everything, including the main attraction the beach. Everyone is super friendly and helpful in the town. From the house you can walk down the main strip and see all the sites.
I agree, I think it's located in an area convenient to everything. We all like to do different things when we visit Port Aransas so it's perfect! Thank you, Madelyn
A great place to stay if you want to be in the midst of Port A's nightlife!
The home is very charming and beachy! There is plenty of parking which is great if you have a big family. The location is good except for the fact that there is a Bar two doors down that plays live music outside on the patio on Friday & Saturday night until 2:00 AM. Needless to say, we didn't get much sleep on those two nights. The dishwasher didn't work but the owner was OK with us leaving it full of dirty dishes. The AC in the Boathouse failed to ever cool it completely. I'm not sure if the kitchen and living room floors were mopped before we arrived. After crawling around on it for a while, my one-year-old grandson's hands and knees were black. One definite positive for the house is the backyard! It is large enough for everyone to sit outside and enjoy the evening breezes.
Hi Linda, the Bar at the end of the street is suppose to obey the city ordinances as it relates to sound and recently I spoke to them about it. The dishwasher had gone out and we replaced it right after you brought it to my attention. The heat index was about 110 that weekend and even though the unit was working it was no match for the heat. We put an additional unit in and that helped significantly. I apologize about the dishwasher, inadequate AC in the Boat House for temps we had that weekend and the floor. I will talk to the cleaning people.
Thank you, Madelyn
Great spot near restaurants and bars.
We enjoyed our stay! Property was what we expected from the photos. Good location. Nice responsive owner. I will say the boathouse can get pretty hot during the day in the summer, but cooled off at night.
Thank you. We would love to you and your group again.
Kids loved the boathouse.
Close to everything.5 minutes drive from beach.we had fun.I liked the front porch,and backyard! 😊
Thank you, Madelyn
Great home, bad location
The home is beautiful- exactly what you
want for a beach house- beds and amenities were great. Pet friendly with a fenced yard. Check in and out were very easy. The owner offered to let us check in early, which we did.
We shared this feedback with the owner: —the house appeared clean, but there were a lot of cockroaches.
- the smoke detector was beeping. We were instructed to remove the battery.
- the reason we will not return or recommend it is because the owner did not disclose it is next to a live music venue that plays loud Club music until 2
AM. The owner’s suggestion was to call the police and she offered to contact the
property manager to see if she had a noise machine. Since we have a baby, we brought a noise machine. It did not cover the music.
When you contacted me early the next morning I was happy to try to resolve the issues you brought to my attention. I knew you were bringing your new grand baby on this trip. I explained that Treasure Island is a Bar and, during the summer months, on the weekends they usually have Live Music. I was there at the Beach House the two nights prior to your check-in. There were no smoke detectors chirping at that time nor did I see any Cockroaches. I think what you saw were the Palmetto Bugs (they look like big roaches) which live in the Palm trees and other trees and are seen all over South Texas because they love the moist conditions down here. There have been, on occasion over the years, times when I have seen them in the house, but I've never seen more than one at time, I apologize that you saw more. We do have the house professionally treated for any insects.
That morning, I offered to let you go ahead and check-out if you wanted to and you said you didn't want to. It was only then, that I said I would be happy to see if our Island property manager could bring a sound machine by. Our listing says that were are within walking distance to everything, We are in "Old Town" Port Aransas which is a popular area to be in. I understand that everyone is different and our location just wasn't a good fit for you. Thank you, Madelyn
