COMFORTABLE, CONVENIENT, ECONOMICAL AND ON THE BEACH

South Padre Island Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths (Sleeps 4-6) -- 1300 sq/ft

Our home is designed for comfort and convenience and yet is one of the lowest priced 2 bedroom units on the South Padre Island Beach. It has granite counter-tops in the kitchen and bathrooms, washer-dryer in the unit, filtered water and ice in the refrigerator door, two recliners in front of the flat-screen TV in the living area, a recliner in the master bedroom for a private “get-away” to watch TV or read, TVs in each bedroom and ceiling fans in all rooms. We live here part of each year and know when something needs to be added or replaced.

The amenities provided by Sunchase IV Resort are unique -- 2 pools (one heated), 2 hot tubs, 2 tennis courts, 2 air-conditioned racquetball courts , 2 air-conditioned ping-pong rooms, a fitness center, a sundeck, and a library. The racquetball courts also accommodates badminton and pickleball. Nets and equipment are available for check out in the lobby free of charge.

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.

If you are interested in another similar unit, please see our HomeAway #942701 listing.

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

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!

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.

Great Property and Great People

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time. The condo was very clean and well kept. It is the perfect stay for a vacation. Very comfortable. It felt like a home away from home. Martha and Dean (owners) were very pleasant and provided us with great service. They included us in many of the activities available in the complex and even took us surf fishing. It was a great experience! We especially enjoyed the 'cook your catch' service that many of the local restaurants provided. Martha and Dean had a successful day of surf fishing and provided us with 8-9 whiting that we enjoyed at a local restaurant.Very delicious. An experience that we will never forget! Thanks Martha and Dean for a great time!

Great rental!

  • 4 of 5
My family and I stayed in this unit for a week and we really enjoyed it. It was really nice and spacious,it had a great balconey. I didn't give it a 5 star because we did have some issues with a very slow drain in the master bathroom, and the parking isn't that great. We never met the owners but, when communicating via email/phone they were very lovely people. I would still rent this unit for future use.

Great family vacation!

  • 3 of 5
We loved our condo at Sunchase IV. It was very clean, had a great view of the ocean and was just a short walk to the beach. The pools were all very nice and kept clean. Beds were super comfortable! Even though there were quite a few people staying in the complex, it was always quiet in our condo. I wish the condo was better stocked with dish soap and trash bags or that I would've known to bring my own. Also, I had to call every day to get towel service. Those were both very minor things. Overall, this was a fantastic place to stay!

Owner's Response: The manager of our condo does provide daily towel exchange service. They start with the top floors and work down as quickly as they can. During the busy season this takes time and we are sorry it took longer than you expected. Unfortunately dish soap, dishwasher detergent, trash bags, and paper towels are not provided. We will try to better inform our future renters so they may bring their own. Thanks for the useful comments.
