After my 4-year stint in the U.S. Coast Guard….in California, New Jersey, Scandinavia and NYC…I became a Corporate Road Warrior for 30 years…racking up over 3 million air miles and visiting every state…except one…but that’s another story.
My family followed me from coast-to-coast. We used Vacation Rentals to visit friends in the various places that we’d lived and for our family vacations, as well.
With 3 million frequent flyer miles behind me…I said goodbye to the Corporate World in 2009 and bought my first condo in Port Aransas in 2011. At first, I used a management company, but found that the only way to treat my guests properly was to take care of things by myself.
In 2013, the condo next door became available and so, we bought it. We did full renovations on both condos…and continue to make improvements every year.
I live the Dallas area, which is an 8-hour drive to Port A, but still manage to visit about once a month.
Hurricane Harvey hit us very hard in 2017…both condos were total “gut jobs”. Every piece of sheet rock and cabinetry had be removed….not by me!
We’re looking forward to re-opening for the Summer of 2019 and having you stay at Crafty’s Beach Retreat!
