Great vacation house. I read the other reviews and was weary of renting at first because I didn't want to plan a vacation for family/friends and have problems with the house. That didn't happen. The house was clean and ready. Everything advertised was there and worked with no problems. If you are looking for a luxurious stay I would stay at the Marriott or somewhere obviously high end but if you are looking for a large beach house this is a great option. The only downside is it is a very short walk to the beach and not directly on the beach. Still a very short walk. My entire 16 person party would like to stay here again next year for our annual South Padre vacation.
