PERFECTLY LOCATED BETWEEN BEACH AND GULF ENTERTAINMENT CENTER

South Padre Island Condo Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms; Sleeps 5

This comfortable and relaxing two bedroom, two bath condo with HIGH-SPEED WiFi INTERNET is ideally situated just a block from the beautiful gulf beaches or from the main boulevard with popular nightlife, entertainment, and some of the best dining on the island.

Our recently remodeled condo comes with a full kitchen including microwave and a blender for your tropical margaritas. The kitchen includes everything you'd expect for a comfortable stay, including a washer and dryer. The unit has wood-look vinyl plank floors and all furnishing are contemporary, including a large white leather couch big enough to sleep on. The master bedroom has a king-size bed, dresser and TV, while the second bedroom has a queen-sized bed with a huge walk-in closet. Living room has a 47' FLAT-SCREEN HDTV and a DVD player. A stereo with CD player and mp3 player input is situated under the counter at the kitchen bar . The high-speed WiFi Internet connection has WPA2 Personal security. Password provided at check-in. Ethernet cable is also available in the condo.

Location, Location, LOCATION: This relaxing two bedroom, two bath condo is our 'Winter Home' and we have it furnished with everything for our comfortable 5-month stay. It is ideally situated between the beautiful gulf beaches and the Laguna Madre Bay within easy walking distance of entertainment and dining. It has a private balcony where you can enjoy your morning coffee or favorite beverage while relaxing in the island breezes. You can see a bit of the bay by day, breathtaking sunsets at night, and a spectacular view of the entertainment district and summer fireworks at night.

EVERYTHING within WALKING DISTANCE: Two parking spots means you never have to worry about beach parking. You can easily walk to the beach and back to the condo for a snack, lunch, or a dip in the heated pool as often as you want. When the sun sets, it is again only a short walk to the bay to view spectacular sunsets. SORRY, NO PETS and NO SMOKING IN THE CONDO!

Guestbook comments from the owner
We purchased this unit in 2006 for winter retirement in another year. We made it available for rent when we are not using it through a property manager. In 2007 we are handling the rentals ourselves. We have a guest book in the condo unit and have received nothing but positive comments from guests that have stayed there with several indicating that they plan to return. We're not able to list the guest comments individually because the book is in the condo and we are in Wisconsin. We are sure this unit will exceed your expectations! Andy and Anita Vissers

Our permanent residence is in Wisconsin; however, since retiring, we have made this condo and South Padre Island our WINTER HOME from Thanksgiving through April each year.

Well equipped kitchen and we really liked the "home" feel of the place, not like the commercial concrete and steel tower condos. It is an excellent location; only a short walk to the beach but far enough from the noise of the main roads. Don't know the reason for fireworks Friday night, but we had a great view of it from the balcony...

GREAT CONDO WITH GREAT LOCATION!

  • 5 of 5
This is a great condo! It is large with nice furnishings and has a very cozy feel. The location is really nice, just a few minutes walk to the beach but the pool is nice too. The only complaint we have is that it isn't very child friendly (we have a 16 month old) but it wasn't really a problem. We hope to visit again in the future and plan stay at this condo! We would definitely recommend this condo to a friend!

Owner's Response: Thank you Lisa... We are retired and the condo is our winter home. I will agree that it is not "child-proofed"... There are lots of "interesting" decorations and TV/Audio controls within easy reach of a toddler. I'm glad you enjoyed your visit!

SIMPLY AMAZING.

  • 5 of 5
This condo was the perfect place for our family of 4. Our boys (ages 9 and 3) LOVED our stay. They took one room while we took the other. Perfect amount of space and our own bathrooms. This condo has everything you would need for an extended stay. Fully equipped kitchen with everything from a crock pot to a grill right down to spices! I want to also add that the place is very clean as well! They even included boogie boards and mats for the beach. Mike is very helpful and friendly! We did the pirate cruise, super cool! It's at The Pirates Landing and the show is great! We will definitely be coming back!

GREAT PLACE TO STAY

  • 5 of 5
This condo was so awesome. We spent the weekend there and it was just right for my family. It is very clean and well kept. The owners are great and the man who manages the property was super nice and very helpful. We will be back and if it is available, we will stay there again.

EXTENDED WEEKEND AT SPI

  • 5 of 5
Fantastic place! My wife and I went to SPI for an extended weekend with family. We absolutely loved this condo. It was really clean, it had a great kitchen, and the beds/accommodations were super-comfy. I think the condo shows a lot better in person than on pictures - we were pleasantly surprised...

The owners were great to deal with over email and Mike, the local property manager, was friendly and helpful. Also, the place is really close to the beach and to the entertainment district (Louies Backyard, etc...). We will definitely be back...

WONDERFUL HOME AWAY FROM HOME

  • 5 of 5
This Condo is EXACTLY like the pictures. Very clean and the perfect size for two adults and two children. The beach is 1/2 a block away. Having everything within walking distance was such a pleasure. We recommend going on the The Black Dragon Pirate Cruise, especially if you have children. A lot of the shops are the same with touristy nick nacks and such but if you want some great gifts and items check out the Ship Shape Shop. You must also check out the Sea Turtle Sanctuary and you can also drive north on Padre Island Drive and find more secluded beaches that you can drive and park on. Though it's a little pricey you have to check out Schlitterbahn Water Park. Super fun and you never have to get out of the water to get on a slide!!
Over all we LOVED the location and our little boy (he's 3) called the condo "our other home." That is exactly what it was. We plan on making this condo a yearly family vacation spot.
