Why Port Royal ? : My journey towards my vacation rental “investment” began in the summer of 2003 when my family decided to vacation in Port Aransas, TX We visited what is probably  the premier resort on the Texas Coast – Port Royal.

What is Port Royal ? : Port Royal is a full service resort with an incredible series of swimming pools that cascade into each other and stretch 500 feet with swim up bars, in ground sunken hot tubs, set on 25 acres of manicured gardens. The rooms (which are really condos with full kitchen, dining rooms, patios etc)  are all very nicely equipped and the service is like a high end hotel.   In the peak of summer a 2 bed unit goes for about $400 per night and the place is usually at full capacity. In the off season the prices drop considerably  and it is much quieter.
