Let Life in Paradise manage your Port Aransas vacation rental

About Us

Life In Paradise Vacation Rentals was a small company that  started in 1985. During the 80's the competition was much different than it is today with only a few companies offering vacation rentals. In 1990 Martha and David Dore purchased the business that consisted of 13 vacation properties. Martha quickly understood that in order to grow the business she would have to create a booking process that was more efficient than using paper calendars showing the bookings for each property.

Why is Life in Paradise Different

Today, Life In Paradise is still a family-owned business that has a culture built on the foundation Martha created years ago. We use many of the same technologies that the larger companies utilize to ensure that we continue to be a leader in the property management business in Port Aransas for years to come.

Life In Paradise will expose your property to online booking websites including:


  1. VRBO
  2. HomeAway
  3. Flipkey
  4. TripAdvisor
  5. Facebook

We spend thousands of dollars each month on Google Adwords and other online marketing initiatives to ensure your property will be seen.
