But the main attraction at South Padre Island is the beach which attracts swimmers, walkers, fishers, & sunbathers
Of course the main attraction at South Padre Island is the beach which attracts swimmers, walkers and sunbathers.
If you rent Unit 305 between November and mid-May, we can also offer you an opportunity to try surf fishing. We will be staying in another unit at Sunchase IV and Dean walks to the beach several times a week to try his luck. He would be happy if you joined him. Equipment and bait will be provided at no charge. Even an amateur like Dean has some good days fishing in the surf. When he does, he and Martha often take their fish to a local restaurant and order “cook your catch.” If this sounds like something you would like to try, please ask for Fisherman Dean” in the lobby at Sunchase IV. They will help us make contact so we may find a time to fish.

About Dean and Martha Isaacson
Dean (professor) and Martha (administrative assistant) both retired recently from Iowa State University (Ames, IA). We have four children and eight grandchildren. They all enjoy spending a week or more in the winter on the beach with us each year. We spend six months in Texas as 'snow birds' and the rest of our time in Iowa, Colorado, and visiting children/grand children. We have decided to avoid snow!
Dean and Martha Isaacson purchased this condo in 1999
Why Dean and Martha Isaacson chose South Padre Island
We first visited Sunchase IV in 1990 as a renter. We continued to rent a unit every January until 1999 when we decided to buy a unit. When we first entered the unit and saw the 10-foot-tall window wall facing the Gulf we were sold on this unit. The entry is very bright and cheery and gives a feeling of comfort when you enter. Almost all units in the Sunchase IV Resort , including this unit, have living areas facing the Gulf and bedrooms facing the Laguna Madre bay. This leads to a variety of views and either sun or shade at all times of the day. The bedrooms are on the 4th floor which keeps any noise in the 3rd floor living areas away from the sleeping areas. Speaking of noise, the building design minimizes sound from other units. We already knew about the unique amenities of the Sunchase IV complex since we had taken full advantage of them for many years before we purchased this unit. Most complexes have pools and hot tubs and some even offer tennis, fitness rooms and saunas but only Sunchase IV offers racquetball, badminton, pickle ball, a heated pool and a steam room. This made the decision to buy an easy one!
What makes this condo unique
We always enjoy our time on South Padre Island. We enjoy walking the beach. We have a favorite route on the beach to the jetty where we watch fishermen, windsurfers, swimmers and dolphins. On some of these walks we hunt for ghost shrimp that Dean uses for bait when fishing. Several times a week Dean will take the short walk from the condo and cast either ghost shrimp or frozen shrimp into the Gulf. When fish are biting, we eat the freshest fish available, often at a local restaurant where they “cook your catch.” On the occasional windy or rainy day there is still much to do at Sunchase IV. We play racquetball, badminton, and pickle ball in the air-conditioned racquetball courts. We lift weights and use the treadmill or elliptical machines in the fitness room. We then follow this with a relaxing dip in the hot tub or heated pool. Of course when the grandchildren are around, they try to do it all. After a day filled with enjoyable physical activity we like to relax in the two recliners facing the flat screen TV. I must admit that we sometimes fall asleep while watching one of our shows but this usually means we had a full day and the comfortable chairs encourage total relaxation. The one who falls asleep asks the other how the program ended.
