Sunchase Beachfront is a fully gated community with full-time security. And since 1999, our beachfront condo has become a second home to hundreds of guests, who return each year.

Sit on the balcony with your morning cup of coffee and watch the waves hit the sandy beach; hear the sounds of the ocean as pelicans soar by.

Purchased in 1999 and completely remodeled in 2008 with updates each fall, our goal is to provide our guests with a warm and relaxing Tropical Texas vacation experience.

The open concept kitchen, living room, dining area is just waiting for your family or friends to get together to laugh, live, and make memories to last a lifetime.

The kitchen features granite counter tops, stainless appliances, and every small appliance we could imagine.

The dining table seats 6-8 depending on if you open it up using the disappearing leaf that is built into the table. Additionally, the snack bar seats three more, and we have a high chair for the littlest member of your crew.

Watch TV on the 48 inch flat screen, installed for viewing from anywhere in the living room, dining room or kitchen. With a beautiful interior, stunning view and easy beach access, Sunchase Beachfront is truly the setting for your fantasy vacation.

Although we, Nora and Sheldon Davis live inland, full-time, about a hour to the west, we come to South Padre Island often.

Although I'm now retired Sheldon is still working and our dream is to spend our 'together' years sitting on the beach watching our grandkids play in the surf.

It is important to us that you feel comfortable in our beachfront home. As the owners, naturally, our goal is to make your visit with us as best as it can be!

Nora Davis purchased this condo in 1999

We bought this unit several years ago because of its proximity to the beach, and this is were we wanted to stay when we come to South Padre Island.

Sunchase Beachfront offered a casual, comfortable Island experience while still being centrally located. Once we saw that it was just a short walk to the Beach, protected by beautiful sand dunes we knew we had found the right place for us.

Sunchase Beachfront offers the ultimate South Padre Island experience. It's Casual, Comfortable, and Charming.

A Casual decor that is up to date and well maintained ready for you to relax.

Comfortable atmosphere with lush green lawns, beautiful views and long walks on the beach.

Enjoy the Charm of this one of a kind complex nestled on the beach just steps from the ocean.

This is where you want to be!

GREAT CONDO IN A WELL MAINTAINED COMPLEX

  • 5 of 5
This is the second time we have rented this same condo from Nora, the amazing owner. The condo itself is very comfortable with all of the little touches that make it feel like home. We love the view and the big patio. I look forward to staying here again.

Owner's Response: Thank you Don for the very nice compliment. It is always a pleasure having you and your family stay at our vacation rental at Sunchase Beachfront. It's our goal to provide every guest with a comfortable, clean and cozy place to call their own while visiting beautiful South Padre Island. The greatest compliment we receive is when a guest returns to stay with us again. We will have the Welcome Mat out for you Don!

HOME AWAY FROM HOME!!

  • 5 of 5
This is the most wonderful vacation you could ever dream of!! Nora has this condo decorated so that you truly feel you are in paradise. Everything you could possibly want is provided for you and then some. Sheldon and Nora keep in touch with you so that if there is anything you need, they will do their best to make you happy. Our favorite place is sitting at the "Hi top" table on the deck and looking at the gulf. The palm tree lights up my day?. Their location is perfect since you can walk both north and south on the beach. The pool is awesome and a perfect place to relax and spend time. SPI is a wonderful place to spend your vacation. Whatever your interests are, you will have a great time here. This condo is so perfect ? come and enjoy life.

GREAT BEACH CONDO

Great condo! Everything was just as pictured, very clean and equipped. Nice to be so close to the beach and walking distance to shopping and dinning. We throughly enjoyed our stay.

NICE CONDO

  • 4 of 5
It was a nice place to stay. No complaints everything went smooth. The beach token was a little bit of a burden but I can see why it was necessary.

Owner's Response: Of course we appreciate your complements, Eric.

Naturally, the reason our guests get a token is because, since we are sooo close to the beach, people who are not staying in our condos want to use the wonderful amenities on our property which are intended just for our guests.

We look forward to seeing you again next year, Eric!

GUEST BEWARE

  • 2 of 5
First the positive - condo is nicely decorated. Granite counters and nice bath.

Now the reality which is not mentioned in the listing or the pictures. This condo is on the beach but it does not have clear beach view. The picture shown in this listing is zoomed in shot of the ocean view. Do not expect the same view from the condo and it is obstructed by the palm tree.

There is no elevator so you have to carry heavy luggage and beach items up the stairs.

There is no laundry facility in the condo. The laundry room is too far by the pool. You need to carry all of the clothes up and down the stairs and leave unattended.

We had internet issues during our stay. It did not work. Owners only kept on sending emails to the internet company but did not resolve the issue. The manager went out of her way to let us use the laptop with 3g internet and also gave us access to the office. That is the reason for two stars. It would have been lower otherwise.

We were on the island again and decided to stay at another property and were looking at the real estate listing and saw that this condo is for sale but is still being rented so if you are planing to rent in the future, know that you may not even have a place.

There are many choices on the island and choose a better one than this.

Owner's Response: After reading what the guest says about our Sunchase Beachfront Condominium, I would ask you to consider the many other reviews of our place.

Besides the obvious differences in experience that many others had, this guest wrote his review more than 90 days AFTER he was a guest in our unit, not the customary 10 days.

The principal reason the guest was not happy is also the principal reason we, as Owner's took over the management of our vacation properties on South Padre Island. Regrettably for years up until this guest’s departure, we did as most condominium owners on South Padre do, hire an independent management company to find customers. That stopped after this guest’s stay.

Since the day he left, we, Sheldon and Nora have managed our own condos on SPI.

Please know that some of what the guest says in his review is true. For example, the Internet service under our former management company was inconsistent. The guest might be pleased to know that we now use the same great Internet service provider in our Sunchase Beachfront unit that we do at our Saida property, the other condo we own on South Padre Island.

We are very sorry the guest did not have a nice time.

Incidentally, our condo was not the first one this guest stayed in while on SPI that week ( For whatever reason, the management company we no longer use, moved him from another unit to ours), I can sort of understand why the guest was not in a good mood to start with.

That said, if you are interested in having a vacation where the owners themselves are responsible for cleanliness, security and a memorable experience like nearly everyone has had now that we have taken over our own management, please give us a call at 956.357.0060 (24/7) for more details and availability.

Once more, we invite you to read the reviews of our many happy guests who have stayed with US since WE have taken over the managment of our units ourselves, April 1, 2013.

We are naturally proud and pleased with our results since we have taken over. Of course, our goal is to not only meet, but exceed our guest expectations!

Hope to hear from you. Nora and Sheldon

EXCELLENT

  • 5 of 5
This was our first time in SPI and using VRBO. It was tons of fun and very relaxing even with our 4 kids. We stayed here because we were right on the beach and there was a grassy area if they just needed to get out and run around. We all so wanted to stay here because we didn't have to cross a road to go to the beach. We also didn't want to deal with the larger hotel style condo.
About the condo

The Condo was nice and clean, the beds were comfortable and the air conditioning was cold. The owners were upfront and honest. They were very accommodating to our individual needs. It was very nice to have a high chair in the condo, boogey boards and other beach equipment (chairs, frisbee, cooler etc). Great place I would recommend this place to other people.

Owner's Response: Being thought of as "Excellent" by a guest is of course, our goal. Thank you Matt for characterizing your experience with us in that way.

Your comments that we have a 'grassy area' within our complex is often overlooked by us. We just take it for granted. Maybe that is another amenity that we as owners fail to promote.

Most of the condo resort communities here on SPI have too much building, mostly rooms, and a pool. One of the reasons we chose Sunchase Beachfront as our vacation home was the amount of grassy area within the complex. It is kind of nice to be able to walk on grass instead of cement all of the time.

And as you mentioned, Matt, at our place, there is virtually nothing between our condos and the beach. Naturally, no road to cross to get to the beach.

Finally, we were so pleased that you remarked about the temperature in the condo. This year, we spent $3000 to install a new AC unit. It better be comfortable.

Thank you again, Matt for you and your family for visiting us. We, of course, welcome your return next year.
