For decades, one Port A community has been setting the bar for luxury beachfront living in the Coastal Bend: Cinnamon Shore. Sitting atop the dunes, the architecture of these properties is so timeless and regal that the tide appears to bow at their feet as it crashes against the sand. It’s a pretty magical place.
But architectural beauty and an unbeatable location aren’t the only reasons Cinnamon Shore is one of the most sought-after vacation and residential communities around. In honor of the newly designed and constructed penthouses and cottages at this resort-style haven, we’re taking an in-depth look at what makes Cinnamon Shores the Coastal Bend real estate creme de la creme.
- Homes Straight Out Of A Magazine
The first thing people notice about Cinnamon Shore is the real estate. Driving down Mustang Island along TX 361, you spot the homes like cranes lifting their faces elegantly towards the sun. And yes, Cinnamon Shore deserves that sappy a metaphor because those houses are straight up gorgeous.
Airy open-floor concepts, window-upon-window of natural lighting, and beach-chic interior architecture create a seamless transition between beach and home, encouraging that uniquely Port A aesthetic of “beach bum classy.” The designers and developers did not hold back when constructing this community of beachside palaces.
Not only is it easy on the eyes, but Cinnamon Shore real estate is also specifically architectured to foster community, maintain luxury standards, and showcase those swoon-worthy island views. That’s why most homes feature three-story builds and large wrap-around porches! Take in the blood orange sunset from your private crow’s nest or invite your neighbors over for drinks on the deck. And if three stories contain more square footage or stairs than you need, Cinnamon Shore also offers newly built series of cottages and penthouses.
Cinnamon Shore real estate sprouts from the mid-$300,000s and reaches up to $2,500,000, displaying a wide range of square footages, locations, and layouts. These homes also make fantastic investment properties, as every year thousands of vacationers looking for a luxury resort-style experience flock to Port Aransas, and short-term and long-term renters are in abundance.
The homes, condominiums, and townhouses at Cinnamon Shore are carefully crafted to create the ultimate getaway atmosphere and meet the relaxation needs of every resident, whether they’re here for a weekend or here forever.
2. Close-Knit Community
Cinnamon Shore is a self-described “welcoming beach community on the Texas Gulf Coast where families nurture tradition and make new memories.” And that’s not just talk. From movie nights in the community’s Town Center to annual events like Beachtoberfest, the winter wine festival (grape stomping, anyone?), and a full calendar of live music and local foodie events, Cinnamon Shore is dedicated to bringing people together.
And since nothing brings people together like good food, Cinnamon Shore offers one-of-a-kind casual and fine dining conveniently located in the Town Center. Stop by C Bar for light meals, snacks, and a full bar. For dinner, there’s Lisabella’s Bistro & Bar, family-owned and one of South Texas’ premier fine dining restaurants.
3. One Big Outdoor Playground
If your ideal day involves surf lessons, a shrimp boil, and a bonfire with friends, Cinnamon Shore might be your perfect fit. Sitting on the edge of the Gulf of Mexico and dangling its feet in the water, Cinnamon Shore is a daydream turned reality, offering vacationers and residents and endless canvas of sand and water to spark adventures and make new memories.
Inventing crazy new tan line designs isn’t the only way to enjoy the beach! Why not spend an afternoon constructing Disney-princess-inspired sandcastles? You can even take Sandcastle Lessons with a professional sand sculptor!
Want to get a workout in? Rock that beach bod year round with beach yoga and horseback riding on the sand.
For more adrenaline-spiking activities, water sports like parasailing, bay and offshore fishing, windsurfing lessons, and swim lessons are also available and an amazing way to experience the Gulf Coast.
4. The Perfect Romantic Setting
Seriously, this place is so stunning, it’s venues are always in demand! In fact, it’s one of the Coastal Bend’s most popular wedding locations. Can you imagine living in a community so beautiful that people want to get married there?! And as a Cinnamon Shore vacationer or resident, you have that fairy-tale romantic setting right out your front door every day.
From water sports to dining, on-site shopping to family entertainment, Cinnamon Shore is everything that makes a vacation (or forever home) unforgettable. Just down the road in Old Town Port A are even memories in the making, with incredible eats, local art galleries, and miles of natural preserves waiting to be explored. Across the channel, Corpus Christi offers popular attractions like the South Texas Aquarium and the USS Lexington, plus lots of cultural events and urban nightlife. The whole of the Coastal Bend is at your fingertips, and Cinnamon Shore is the launching point for adventure.
