We are normally stay at Sandcastle Condo.


it is a great place to stay, right on the beach via a boardwalk, nice large pool, the rooms are newly renovated, the beds are so comfy. You have use of a kitchen with all the materials, like fridge, stove, microwave, dishes & pots & cleaning detergent. It makes it nice for lunch or in the morning, for a quick bite. The staff is very friendly & helpful with great amenities. From the balcony you can get a view of the Gulf coast, pool or both, just depends on your room.

Not sure exactly what you mean about not driving anywhere. Everything in Port A is at MOST a 5 minute drive, unless you stay in some of the condos farther out 361.

We like the Courtyards Condo. There 5 minutes from town. We go to the shrimp boat area and buy shrimp then go to the grocery store buy t-bones and grill them on there grills. This is the way to go. Then go to The Back Door, Or Bernies and have drinks and set back and enjoy the night. Both places are at docks.
