Spring Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We spent several days at the island and found the beach house to be perfect for our needs. We took three families and our kids. Each couple had a nice bedroom and the kids had the bunk bedroom! The location was close to the beach with a short walk where we spent hours and hours by the ocean! One evening we walked to the go cart place and our boys had so much fun! The living room was big enough for us to play charades for game night! We will definitely stay here again!

Wedding Family

  • 4 of 5

The rental process was easy; the property itself lived up to the pictures presented. The property was clean and fairly well maintained. It was extremely convenient and close to the beach, as well as shops on Padre Blvd. Opportunities for improvement were the lack of a coffeemaker (although filters were in the cabinet) and a very loose toilet handle in the front bathroom. Overall, we were satisfied with our stay and will consider renting again!

great place

  • 5 of 5

Just did a week at this condo.

Our first time in this place. Everything was as represented. Well stocked and comfortable. All that was needed was food and warm bodies which we provided. Hot water in showers was very hot, which is a plus as most places only have lukewarm. The entire property was clean, and well kept. We did find the tv's and related appliances difficult to operate. Not a deal breaker as we did not go to watch tv, however, there was some rain days. Neighbours were all quiet and visible. The beach was literally 3 minute walk,,,,and I am not in shape,,,,maybe 2 minute for those who are! Priced right as well. My group will definately book again, in the near future. The driveway entrance from the street could have used some pothole repair, not usually a big deal but I drive a car that is extremely low to the ground. But,,there were no other cars of my model on the island last week. I would think that for the masses, this would not even be noticable. City trash pickup was twice weekly, which we certainly needed. Having lived in Mission for several years and being a frequent visitor to the island, I wish I had known about this place then. We live in north central tx now, but find this place was well worth the 9 hr drive to get there. I definately would recommend this condo to others, except on the dates that we want to occupy.

Weekend Girl's Trip

  • 4 of 5

My close girl friends and I spent the weekend at the beach house for three days and had a blast. The house had everything we needed for a girls getaway. The only compliant I do have is we had to buy more paper towels and toilet paper. We assumed they would have provided enoough for 10 girls staying there. Also, we did not utilize the game room because it had a mildew smell to it. Otherwise, we had a great time and I would definitely go back.

End of Summer Trip

  • 5 of 5

We rented the house for an end of sumer trip and were very pleased. We had 2 12 yr old boys, and 1 toddler along with me and my wife. The house was great as was the location! Leaving the instructions on how to operate the TVs etc was a great touch, but the TVs would change channels without warning, and the kids were not able to get the Wii to work (we tried for a few hours). We had an excellent time! We will rent the house again!!

GREAT HOUSE!!!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week in this house and it was perfect. Comfortable home, great price. We had a total of 10 and had plenty of room. The 4 girls (ages 9-19) enjoyed the bunk bed room & game room. Plenty of room for all. Kitchen was well stocked. Walked to beach, shops, fireworks, and convenience store. The outdoor shower and laundry room was great.The keypad on the door was awesome, never had to look for keys. Enjoyed sitting on the front porch listening to music in the evenings with the outdoor speakers. Only negative - no swimming pool but for the price, couldn't ask for more. Thanks for a great week.
