Make Your Vacation Home in Our Charming Seaside Village 

 This Gulf-front town on the outskirts of Port Aransas, Texas, has become an idyllic community with resort-like pools and amenities, on-site eateries, and family-friendly activities. It's a place where memories become the legacy of days lit by the Texas sun. 

Check out five favorite reasons to join the neighborhood at Cinnamon Shore!


1. It Offers High Design & Many Home Types.

With a master plan by Urban Designer Mark Schnell, Cinnamon Shore adheres to the New Urban standard for walkable neighborhoods with a variety of property types. Look for condos, cottages, town homes, and beach homes that rise along parks, pools, and the Gulf in two neighboring villages.

Cinnamon Shore North and Cinnamon Shore South are located on the outskirts of Port Aransas, Texas, just about one mile apart from each other. Both have luxury amenities and well-built residences where families come to make lasting memories.

2. It Feels Like a Safe Haven.

Cinnamon Shore North and Cinnamon Shore South are both self-contained villages on Mustang Island, a narrow barrier island near Corpus Christi, Texas.

Here, families enjoy the simple pleasures of beach life. Many parents feel comfortable letting kids roam free on palm-lined streets on bikes and scooters. Families can walk just about anywhere they wanna go – beach, pool, pizzeria, or coffee shop on the corner of Market St. Children run over from the North Town Center green to The Shore Cafe for gelato, many cast a line into village lakes and ponds stocked with fish for their first catch.

Small joys, lifelong memories!


South Beach and Crossover

3. It Offers Easy Gulf Access & Resort-Like Amenities.

Among multiple luxury pools and landscaped parks and playscapes, the beach is our best amenity! Private, sturdy dune crossovers take you to and from the beach by foot or in a golf cart, available for rental on site. At Cinnamon Shore North, two dune crossovers serve the community, while Cinnamon Shore South now has three, two-way crossovers in use.

World-class amenities include lavish pools, such as the Dune Pool with shady pergolas, Keira's Pool with infinity view over Lake Gavin, the adults-only Cabana Pool, and new Splish Splash Family Pool with splash pad; a Fitness Center at 'North' and two new fitness center under construction now at 'South,'; two dog parks; The Great Lawn and other grassy parks in both villages, including Sunset Park, Coastline Fire Lounge, Tailwind Park, and the Neighborly Square Playground.
