A Truly Beautiful Place

Windsurfing & Kite Sailing: Padre Island is one of the best Windsurfing and Kite boarding destinations in the world, and this house has one of the best and most convenient launches on the Island. It's a 75ft walk from the garage to the walk-in launch (no sea wall). The launch is located on the point of land on the Island that reaches furthest out into the Laguna Madre so the wind shadow is minimized. The garage can store 14 rigged sails on hooks hanging from the ceiling. Watch your friends from the deck ! (If you know the Island, I don't mean to take anything away from 'The Flats', but as far as a launch that is close to your house and rigged gear, this is the best there is.)

Bird Watching: Padre Island is known for great bird watching. Visit the new $6.5 million dollar birding center just north of us. And we have a small wetland just behind our house that has offered an array of egrets, herons, Great Blue Heron, Rosy Spoonbills, Osprey, kingfishers and more.

Perfect for a Large Group

  • 5 of 5
Great accommodations! The home was equipped with everything we needed- lots of towels, space and great views. My family could sprawl out in the many rooms and come together on the deck for some "family time." Thanks for the hospitality.

This place is awesome! Great for a few families.

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Big Blue Beach House. The home is immaculate, comfortable, spacious and well-stocked with everything you need to make for a fabulous vacation. We rent from VRBO and Homeaway a few times a year (in different locations) and this is definitely one of the best homes we've encountered. You'll find tons of comfy towels, spices, condiments and other necessities in the kitchen, a great entertaining floor plan and tons of closet space. The deck is fantastic for chilling out after a long beach day and above all we loved that we could bring our well-behaved Golden-doodle, Murphy, along. We had an excellent customer-service experience with Dave from the very beginning and throughout our stay. He really wants to make sure that every visitor gets the most out of their vacation. We will definitely be back!

Dream Vacation at the Perfect Oasis

  • 5 of 5
The Big Blue House was the perfect dream vacation for our family! The house was a perfect fit. The porch and it's view of the bay was my favorite place to chill and read my daily devotional with a hot cup or coffee in the morning. We especially love the fireworks ( seen perfectly from the porch) and the gorgeous sunsets as we chilled on the porch in the evening. Since we loved the house so much, we decided to cook out every night and enjoy every minute of being at the house. One suggestion only: a better grill that is gas. Our teenage boys loved the bikes and the kayak. The whole family felt so blessed to be able to spend this quality time together in such a perfect house that felt like a home! Thank you!!!

Great property in a great spot with everything

  • 5 of 5
We all arrived wondering what to expect but no one was less than thrilled to see this place. Lots of room, lots of rooms for that matter, and the atmosphere was such that you felt right at home. Not overdone yet lacking nothing. Everything worked and we found many things we wouldn't have expected to be available in a vacation property. All things to do were a short walk bike or scoot away from the house, great restaurants shopping and plenty of beach opportunities. The highlight for everyone was the deep sea fishing trip we took with Captain Mike Haggler. We all spent many days touring different spots on the beach, paddle boarding and canoeing and just relaxing around the house. My biggest disappointment was of course having to go home. We have all agreed to come back next year.
