Holiday Rental House
The Salty Hippo is the ideal home for your beach vacation. This well appointed 3 bedroom 2.5 bath home is located in a quiet part of town with very little thru traffic and views of the ship channel. It is also nearby the Port Aransas community heated swimming pool which the owners kindly provide day passes to for you and your guests. The Port A Community pool is heated to 80 degrees during the winter months. If you love bird watching, there is a nature preserve a short distance away. The open floor plan allows for everyone to be able to gather together in one area while not feeling cramped. The living room has a nice sectional sofa for plenty of cushy comfort. There is a dining table with seating for 6 with an additional 4 seats along the breakfast bar island. The kitchen is fully stocke...The Salty Hippo is the ideal home for your beach vacation.
