If you are planning a trip to Padre, this is the BEST place to stay! The owner is pleasant, easy to work with - and it's obvious that her “personality” is in every detail of this beautiful “home away from home”. From the sheets, towels, pillows and mattresses to the dishes, furnishings and décor - both inside and out – everything is high end. You even start your stay with a gift bag of gourmet chocolates, WOW! The entire condo was spotless and the grounds well maintained. The patio is private and the sound of the surf is amazing at night! The pool area, just outside the patio, is tropical and sunny with great ocean breezes. In the late afternoon it was shady and nice - perfect for relaxing under the palms after a day at the beach. You don’t need to pack beach towels, rent beach chairs or an umbrella, Dianne provides them for you. This was GREAT for us as we flew in! The Island Shuttle picked us up at the airport and dropped us at the door, even helping with our bags. The “Wave”, a local bus service, ran us all over the Island for FREE, catching it just a few steps away at the end of the street. It runs about every 15 minutes or so and was a great convenience for us. We did take a cab to Walmart to grocery shop, but other than that, we walked everywhere and took the Wave. One of our favorite “hang-outs”, Wanna-Wanna, is on the beachfront just down the street. We had a very memorable experience in Padre and renting this condo was the best decision we ever made, no more hotels for us – we are spoiled! I am positive that you can’t find this luxury, this location or this value anywhere else in Padre. Thank you Dianne for sharing your incredible home! Can’t wait to return!
