BEACH FRONT GROUND FLOOR 3/2 CONDO. A FEW STEPS TO THE BEACH!

South Padre Island Condo Rental Photos and Description

This beautifully decorated, ground floor 3BR/2BA unit is a rare find.

Just 22 steps to the beach, this newly-decorated condominium is, for the first time, being offered to the rental market by its private owner. You'll find all the amenities including ample space for 8 guests featuring a living/dining area, fully appointed kitchen with walk-in pantry, master bedroom and bath at beach level and two quiet bedrooms sharing a full travertine bath. The master bedroom and living areas feature a walk-out porch with Adirondack chairs for some beach side relaxation. This unit is particularly unique because of its ground floor proximity to the board walk leading to the beach and its floor-to-ceiling windows which present you a constant and magnificent view of the dunes and beach shore line. At sunrise you’ll surely enjoy dune flowers as they emerge with each sunrise. The unit is fully digital with wireless internet and 3 internet enabled digital entertainment centers. A laundry room has a large load washer/dryer and beach toys are available in the owner's storage unit. Fabulous beds and linens will ensure you enjoy the most restful sleep possible. A quiet and beautiful pool and tennis courts are available for you use -- just steps away from your unit. Sea Vista is the southern most property on the island next to a protected marine preserve yet close to the best restaurants on the southern harbor. Fishing, dolphin and bird watching is within walking distance. There is a maximum occupancy of 8 persons with 2 automobiles allowed.

Suitability:
  • Long-term Renters Welcome
  • Minimum Age Limit for Renters
  • children welcome
  • non smoking only
  • wheelchair accessible
  • pets not allowed

Ed and Betty DeShields and their daughter Bess have been visiting South Padre Island for many years. We live in Dallas, Texas but love the island for all the memories it has made in our family.

Ed and Betty DeShields purchased this condo in 2013

We've stayed in many properties throughout the years but Sea Vista is simply one of the finest properties on the island. Sea Vista is mostly owned by private owners so your stay is usually quiet and free from the masses that do not crowd our private beach. Management is attentive to your every need and all you have to do is ask if you need something.

22 steps to the beach and directly on the ground floor. No elevators, corridors or lengthy walks will keep you from the beach. You will literally walk onto your lawn and patio directly from the beach. Gorgeously decorated and fully appointed with a full kitchen and bedding that ensure you will have a restful stay. Sea Vista is closest to the action, yet super-quiet without the crowds. Schlitterbaun water park is within walking distance as is two private tennis courts and pools. Maximum occupancy 8 persons, 2 automobiles.

Tranquility!

  • 5 of 5
We did not want to leave it was such a wonderful experience! I could live on the back porch in those Adirondack chairs! The condo instantly made me jealous of the "lack-there-of" of my decorating skills because it was decorated so beautifully! The closet full of goodies (boogie boards, flashlights, volleyball net, etc.) was excellent for our family enjoyment! The "critter getters" even amused the husbands!! Two little "nit-picks" 1. The check-in process could be a bit smoother. Because the condo number isn't listed on the VRBO.com listing it was a little tricky explaining to the office ladies the situation and the office ladies weren't too friendly to that issue, but it was worked out once I mentioned the owners names. 2. If you have kids I wouldn't plan to put them in the Master bedroom as it is only separated from the living room by a sliding partition wall. Don't get me wrong, it overs great privacy, it's just for kids it is a bit distracting come sleeping time if someone is up late watching TV in the living room.

Owner's Response: We loved having you and glad you had a great vacation. VRBO won't allow owners to post their actual suite addresses for security reasons, but I hope you got the royal treatment once they made the connection with us. I'll make sure I mention this to guests. Thanks again!

Sea Vista Condo

  • 5 of 5
We (3 girlfriends) vacationing together. Although the weather could have been better, the area was beautiful. Very close to the beach, just a few steps away. Condo was clean, comfortable and beautifully decorated, would choose this rental again. Took advantage of beach walking, seafood from various restaurants and points of interest such as Turtle Rescue Center and Bird Center. Both of these are worth taking time to visit. Owner sent detailed information before the trip which was very useful.

Wonderful Location for a Great Getaway!

  • 5 of 5
We were not disappointed. At the very end of a long line of hi rises, this condo offers
very beautiful views with nothing but beach south of it. Relatively private and extremely
comfortable, we completely enjoyed our stay! We highly recommend this unit!
Beds were quite comfy, too.

Beautiful View

  • 5 of 5
This property is beautiful. It is decorated beautifully and has a beautiful view. It is nice to walk right to the beach and not have a fence in your view. I was impressed with the items that we able to use such as beach towels, chairs, etc. and the soaps, dish soap, etc. were well stocked as well as other towels. The owner encourages you to use the items that are left there and encourages you to leave something for the next guest which is really nice. You feel like it is a place you share! The owner and staff were very nice and helpful. I would recommend this place.

The hospitality from the off-site owners via telephone made all the difference. Knowing they cared for our stay was nice. Great active family getaway. Forget hotels etc. Off the beaten path. This is the way to go. Condo staff very professional and courteous.

Amazing condo! We have stayed in several at Sea Vista and this condo is by far the best! The absolute most comfortable beds, decorated impeccably, wonderful views and the owners are quite fantastic people. They actually truly care about your enjoyment. Hopefully, we will have the opportunity to stay here again!
