Wonderful Balcony View of Gulf

  • 4 of 5

This condo was very homey and comfortable. Having the beach just steps from the condo was a wonderful experience. The overall cleanliness was good except for the bathroom tub (which was plugged and not draining upon our arrival) The plumber was finally able 3 weeks into our vacation to clean out the drains in the tub and bathroom sink. Although this was a bit of inconvenience our overall stay made for a memorable experience and we intend to return again next winter

Soothing to the Soul.

  • 4 of 5

What a perfect way to end the summer! Wake to the Waves is located at the far end of the island away from the multitude of high rises and Schlitterbahn, a perfect place to relax and unwind. Far enough from the big crowds but still has plenty of action. And as close to the beach as you can possible get. The pictures are a perfect description of Cheryl's charming home with a few exceptions. The dining room furniture and a few other pieces have been updated and there is a brand new refrigerator, Most surprising to me was the size of the balcony, spanning the length of the living room and bedroom. A great place for morning coffee and evening cocktails. The sliding glass door is a bit tough to open. I agree that the kitchen and bath need updating but they have everything needed for a delightful stay. The complex is very well maintained and nicely landscaped. The pool is steps from Wake to the Waves. Be sure to go down just past the Convention center and watch the sunset on the bay side of the island, it is breathtaking. Skip Louie's Backyard. While the setting is perfect, food is pricey and not very original.

Truly Wake Up to the Waves! Perfect Location!

  • 5 of 5

We chose this property because of the ocean view and they accept pets. This is an older property, but it's nicely decorated and maintained fairly well. This unit is on the second floor. We loved the location, for the view and being steps from the beach. We enjoyed breakfast watching the sunrise and cocktails watching fireworks from a nearby club in the evening on the balcony. The owner provides chairs & other beach needs, although we took the lazy way out and rented cabanas and umbrella for two days @ $25/day. The cons are that the unit needs updating in the kitchen + bath. The fridge didn't keep food & drinks cold (on the coldest setting) & probably should be replaced. My husband complained about no venting fan in the bathroom and the need for an elongated toilet. Also the balcony door in the bedroom doesn't open, but that didn't really bother me. The owner, Cheryl's recommendation of the Sea Ranch for our special dinner was spot on! (It was our 25th Anniversary). We loved the Sunset Cruise @ Pier 19 . We also had our best lunch there of peel & eat shrimp & the best nachos I've ever had. We also loved the breakfast @ Yummies - best coffee! We are grateful to Cheryl for a wonderful experience@ her property and we will definitely be return guests as often as possible.

Spectacular View/Desperately Needs Updating!

  • 2 of 5

You cannot beat the view and location of this unit, and I certainly cannot say enough great things about that! We were there Labor Day weekend and once the weekend is over, the beach was truly a paradise. Unfortunately, they started power washing the building and put scaffolding in front of our beautiful view and it was extremely disappointing and very irritating. I realize this is perhaps a time for maintenance, but maybe they should wait for a less busy time of year...like winter! The owner was not aware of the power washing until we told her.

We felt this unit was in desperate need of updates and could've been a little cleaner for our taste. Even some of the beach items in the closet had mold on them. The patio doors in the bedroom didn't open so we couldn't enjoy the sounds of the ocean, and the sheets were so pilled up we actually washed them because we thought it was sand. I wouldn't stay here again unless it was updated and had been cleaned from top to bottom. As I use HomeAway and VRBO regularly, I rely on these reviews and was surprised more reviews didn't reflect this.

Although my review is very late in coming, we are looking again for a place to stay over Labor Day week and I came across this unit and saw there had been no updates, I felt the need to offer my comments.

Comfortable stay with an outstanding view!

  • 5 of 5

We chose this property because it was beachfront, reasonable in price, and pet friendly. My husband, 9 year old Labrador retriever, and I stayed for one week in this beachfront condo. This is our fourth time staying in South Padre and we have stayed somewhere different each time. This was by far our favorite condo and we would definitely stay here again! The bed was very comfortable and you can literally hear the waves while lying in bed. Cheryl does a wonderful job at keeping her home away from home comfortable for guests. She was quick to respond when I had any questions and has recently did some updates with the furniture. She also added a dehumidifier which kept the condo from having the musty smell I am used to smelling when visiting. As another reviewer mentioned, the bathroom and kitchen are a bit dated. However, it wasn't a big deal for us because the view made our stay! We enjoyed the keyless entry so it was one less thing we had to keep up with. The bedroom sliding door to the patio was taped off and was unable to use it and the one in the front room stuck frequently; however, Cheryl stated it would be replaced in June. The owner was quick to return the deposit, as I had it in a couple of days. We visit the island once per year and would have no reservations about returning to this condo for our vacation.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your review! I'm so glad that you had an enjoyable stay. The kitchen will be getting more upgrades as well as the bathroom this December as I'm constantly trying to improve and update a condo that is over 40 years old. I hope to see you again next year. Currently I have 2 other couples/families that have repeated so have seen the improvements made over the 3 plus years that I've been renting. Have a great summer!
