This was our first trip to South Padre and we didn't know what to expect. The condo is easy to get to and is located in a gated community with ample security on duty. We traveled with our 2 girls and felt very safe.
Pictures on the website accurately represent the condo. Huge balcony faces the gulf with a really nice view of the water. Property was clean and well maintained. Plenty of dishes and cookware for the 4 of us. There was a malfunction with the water heater, however we called the emergency # and the property management were extremely quick to get it fixed. Very pleased with their response time.
Many restaurants are located close by. We recommend touring the Sea Turtle Rescue Center and were thrilled to watch a nest of turtle hatchlings released into the gulf. We also recommend the Pier 19 Osprey fishing tour which is very inexpensive for a 4 hour tour (price includes all of the bait & fishing gear but you'll need to get your own fishing license). Also, don't forget to bring flashlights for nighttime crab hunting on the beach outside the condo (fun for the kids!).
We will definitely stay at this location again.
