Guestbook comments from the owner
Awesome weekend! We had a great time. The short walk to the beach was great for the kids and me. The owner provided sand toys, chairs and sunscreen. The fishing was great for us too. We found the unit as advertised and the owner was always available for questions. We will definitely be back

FAMILY OF THREE

  • 5 of 5
This was our second time to stay in this condo, and once again I was pleased! It is very clean, decorated nicely, a very short distance from the beach, the owner is easy and very nice to communicate with, and did I mention the bed is very comfortable. With the condo having everything you need, it is definitely a home away from home. Anytime we go to North Padre we will definitely be staying here.

SMALL BUT NICE. BEWARE THE FEES.

  • 2 of 5
The condo is small, but nicely decorated. Understand that while it states it is one block from the beach, you have a five minute walk before your feet touch the sand. It accommodated my family of four nicely. I would have given the property a higher review if it weren't for the additional cleaning fee we were charged. Prior to leaving we completed everything on the instructions. Additionally, my wife cleaned the floors including hair balls behind the sofa but we were still charged a cleaning fee that was almost double of that we were quoted. I asked for an explanationof the fee but heard nothing but crickets.

FUN ON THE ISLAND!

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time at the 'Blue Seahorse' condo during our long weekend mini-vacation in May. We spent two days at the beach, and one day (too windy!) at the pool within the condo complex. It was all delightful, and we intend to make arrangements to stay here again in the future. The directions were very easy to understand/follow for the door code, pool key, clean-up, etc. There are plenty of dishes and cooking utensils, beach towels (in case you forget yours or need more), and bath supplies. We loved the music theme (my husband plays guitar here in Austin) and the nautical decor throughout the condo was relaxing. We also brought our pups; it costs a lot extra $ per pet, but we were very happy to have them with us. Overall, and excellent stay!

AWESOME CONDO

  • 5 of 5
We booked this condo with such ease. The owner called to confirm our stay & was very nice. When we arrived we were pleased that the entire complex was very nice & quite. The blue sea horse condo was nicely furnished & had everything we needed & more! My boys loved the sleeper sofa & I loved the comfy bed. Big walk in closets, large bathroom, great kitchen, laundry room & living room. The condos are right next to the entrance to the Whitecap beach(a few blocks away). We drove but you can walk. My fisherman loved the salt water pond. He fished with squid & dead shrimp & caught so many fish & crabs... The owner was very responsive when I inquired during my stay. The door code is a nice feature so no keys to keep up with. I would suggest changing it to a shorter code that you want. You are given directions how to. I also liked the assigned parking. We decided to stay another night & was able to pay via vrbo by the owner. We will definitely stay again & again.

WE HAD A WONDERFUL VACATION!

  • 5 of 5
Blue Seahorse Condo was very nice, clean, comfortable and the AC works great w the ceiling fans! Close walk to a beach and a very short distance from Bob Hall Pier...our favorite sun spot! Everything we needed, and more, was provided...I felt quite at home. The Owner was a joy and very responsive. Luvd the Texas Music Wall, since we're from Austin. We stayed w our youngest Daughter (11) and two Grandkids (8 & 7)...they had a great time! Fun for young & old, alike. Would definitely rent, again.

AWESOME VACATION!

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time in our abode by the sea! Very clean which is extremely important. Really convenient to the Gulf, local restaurants, and other sites. The kitchen was really well stocked with all we needed and more. We were a block from the beach but had our own private pond for fishing & crabbing which our boys loved. The provided sand toys, beach chairs, and beach towels were great too. We drove to the beach each day but could have walked if had too. Only negative was that our balcony opened to the entrance of the facility, so not very scenic nor private but we really didn't use it much. We would definitely rent again.
