Had a wonderful week here in this unit ... clean and well appointed. Just the two of us for a week's getaway and it was great. Wonderful view of the beach from the living area and master ... great sunrise pictures ... and when you come in from the beach the pool and hot tub are relaxing as well ...

Clean and comfortable

The photos are very accurate. Not overly large and a little dated but nicely decorated. We weren't in it much so for the money it was more than adequate. Kitchen is pretty much loaded with everything. The unit was clean and the beds were comfortable. Location was great, grounds are nicely kept and front desk staff were friendly and helpful..

The only 'con' I can think of was the plumbing noises in the master bedroom. I always travel with ear plugs so slept very well once I put those in.

Beach was lovely and great for morning walks. Lots of wave action so not a place to just float - but lots of fun! Be sure to drive north to the end of the road and explore the dunes. We did the horseback ride out there and it was wonderful.

Be sure to check out Yummies Bistro - Awesome breakfast, lunch, soup and pie! Turtle rescue, Nature Walk, Farmers Market were all great, too.

This is a great property on south padre island. Peaceful, staff very helpful and friendly. I highly recommend sunset horseback riding while there, well worth the cost. This owners condo is in great shape, very clean and comfortable. I will definitely be coming back and looking to book ths condo again. Thanks

Great oceanside retreat!

The condo had a wonderful view - just like the pictures! It was a good size too and could accomodate a family easily. The surrounding area was pretty quite as well. As an insanely light sleeper, the only (slight) downside was that I kept waking up to the air conditioner sounds in the master bedroom. Everything else - the kitchen, balcony, internet, bathroom, proximity to the water was fantastic!!

Parking was pretty good too; the lot is gated and I never had issues finding a parking spot. Parking here would also be great if you came in the more typical months - you'd be right on the beach without having to fight for a spot!

The weather didn't quite cooperate with me during my stay, but there was plenty of good food nearby within walking distance and the condo became quite cozy on the too-cold/rainy days (everyone said that it was really odd weather; I'll have come back when things return to normal and enjoy the sun!)

I'd return here if I go back to South Padre and definitely recommend it to other interested people!! Happy beach-going time!! :-)

Nice Place to Stay

We really enjoyed our stay at Aquarius #507. The unit was everything we expected. It was clean, the perfect size for a family of 4 (we thought 6 people would be a pretty tight squeeze as the unit overall isn't that large). The location on the island was great. The 5th floor views were awesome. The building itself seemed to be well managed and the front desk attendants were helpful and friendly.

A recommendation would be to provide a portable drying rack out on the front balcony to allow storage and drying of swim suits and towels. Not the owners fault I'm sure but the trash can only had 1 trash bag with no extras anywhere to be found.

Overall a great apartment and a great place to vacation.

Owner recommendations

A must, and our first stop when reaching the island for lunch is Dirty Al's for their shrimp basket. Our favorite spot is Palm Street Pier. Try any of the three award winning shrimp cook-off dinners and don't forget a piece of key lime pie. Sit on the veranda at Amberjack's for a great sunset dinner, or there is a sunset dinner cruise at Laguna Bobs. But our favorite sunset location is on our own bedroom balcony for wine and pizza, where you can also watch fireworks in the summer. (W.I.F.I. available in unit)
