About Jeannie Agan

Corporate executive (GM Nestle) based out of Chicago. I have owned the beach house for more than 10 years and have seen my kids grow up enjoying the beach and the Island flavor. The separate living areas are great for multi-generational family gatherings where folks need to get away from time to time. The layout of the house is ideal as the upstairs becomes the gathering location while the downstairs allows folks to get away as needed. We have enjoyed sharing our home with the various return guests. I'm available at 630-306-7946.

Jeannie Agan purchased this house in 2001

Great location across from the beach.

  • 4 of 5
The location was super. You could go walking on the beach most anytime and feel safe. We enjoyed sitting on the deck for meals, to watch the surf and the people. The rental was very clean, neat and the floor plan was easy to live with. The kitchen was equipped with a new frig. with icemaker. The house was comfortable and well supplied in the kitchen area. The surrounding area has lots of good restaurants, grocery store nearby and alot of fun attractions to visit. We would recommend this rental to family and friends. It has 2 large bedrooms both with a king size bed. It was quite helpful to have a washer and dryer in the house. The owner was very easy to work with and returned your telephone calls promptly. There is also a property manager who is near and kept in contact as to any needs that we may have pertaining to the rental. This was our first experience renting from Home Away From Home and I will definitely use them again. Great fun and will rent again when availabe.

Far surpassed our expectations

  • 4 of 5
Our first time renting a beach house couldn't have been easier. The owners Scott & Jeannie made this a hassle free experience. Manager Wayne was a joy to deal with and was readily accessible. At first I was a little nervous given that the rate for the house was considerably less than other listed homes. No need to worry. From the outside, the house is older than others in the neighborhood but the inside is freshly decordated and updated nicely. The house couldn't be more ideally situated. Directly across the street from the public beach access (paved with shower). The neighborhood is mostly residential so the traffic is much less than the areas closer to the causeway. Access to the beach and proximity to the Island Inn are both key benefits in my book. Ted's is a must visit - try the breakfast tacos. Best meal in Padre. Have to love the wrap around deck. I could sit on that deck and watch the waves roll in for hours. I miss it already. Would be better if it had a dishwasher but for the price I'm not complaining. We had guests in town so it was nice to have the upstairs/downstairs option for additional privacy. I'm back home in the cold now but looking forward to our return trip. Thanks Scott & Jeannie for the memories.

Great price. Nice house. Great location.

  • 5 of 5
Literally steps away from the beach (even if the beach access across the street was an overgrown path through the dunes and not a concrete path like many of the other access points) and bike lane. This was really nice since we could go to the beach when ever we liked, not feeling we had to go as a group (like if you had to drive to the beach). So we would go to the beach in small groups...OFTEN!!!

We had 10 total in the house (7 adults and three kids - 2, 5, 7) and it was more than enough room. The upstairs was more updated than the downstairs, but it was still worth the price. The AC worked great, kept us cool during the night. We cooked in most nights and the cookware was adequate (plus a new gas grill). The bed we had slept well (but we were tired every night from the day's activities). The shower outside was basic, but it did the job...sand free!

I have no comments about the rental manager since we had no problems.

The door to the bottom section was at the back of the house. This was a pain loading and unloading, but this turned out nice since we could store our bikes and beach stuff there without feeling our stuff was going to be taken.

The only downside was it didn't have a swimming pool. It would've been nice to have one at night. So that would be only reason we wouldn't stay here again.

Very relaxing

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I have been renting on the Texas coast for 15 years and this property was the best value yet! It is very clean, has a great view of the Gulf, very comfortable beds, a good utilitiarian kitchen and the decorations throughout the house made it fel like home. The WiFi was great so we could still work when necessary. We also liked the fact it was close to very good dining, grocery shopping and was very quiet. The propert manager was also very knowledgable of the island and very helpful. I would recommend this house to anyone who wants to relax!!

Wonderful Family Experience

  • 5 of 5
My family and I rented just the upstairs unit for one glorious week last August. The owners are extreamily friendly and very accomodating. Their home care taker is also very friendly and accessible. The home is the perfect family beach home feeling place that we dreamed of staying in, comfortable galore! You won't find a bargain like this anywhere else on the island! To be able to just walk across the street and be at the beach was amazing and SO handy with children. The outdoor shower was a big plus and to be located near a beach bar & grill was awesome. I hesitated to write this review.....we may never find this place available again because of it :O) HAHAHA

Thanks again for sharing your treasure with us!

Wonderful Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5
My family and my extened family stayed in this wonderful beach house. If I come back to Padre this is were I will stay again. The owner of the property was very nice and easy to work with. The property manager on the beach was awesome as well. Just a call away. This is one of the few place on Gulf Blvd were you can have a whole house to yourself if you get both units. Most other place are at least 4 or more units. Lots of Privacy. The deck is great. You can sit there and watch the waves roll in. House looks better than the pictures. Upstairs is a little nicer, but both units are great. There is a shower on the wall outside so you can get all the sand off when you come in from the beach. The beach access is right across the street from the house. We saw alot of people totting all there beach stuff up streets and down block and were glad we picked this house. Kitchen has plenty of dishes for a big group. Couchs upstairs are comfortable if you need them. Internet via dial up and wifi. The downstairs bedroom has a daybed that you can't see in the picture. It really came in handy since I have four kids. The island is set so that you can get anywere within just a couple minutes and if you don't have a car there is a free shuttle that stops within steps from the house and take you were you need to go. We all had cars but some of my family preffered to use the shuttle. We enjoyed our stay so much that we left a visitors journal at the house so people could share there stories and give some comments to the next group. Did I mention that I spent week looking online at this was the best priced 4 bedroom unit. What a deal!!!!!!.
