Tween Season Time to Relax

  • 5 of 5
My family, including myself, hubby (48 and 49) and two college aged young adults, stayed here for a week May 11-18, 2013. It was the perfect time between spring breakers and summer season. We practically had the beach, pools, poolside chairs, and boardwalk to ourselves, wonderful weather in the 70's each day, and had no wait times at restaurants. We found the location fairly easily thanks to a map from the owner and a sign, but the resort was set back some from the main road. The rental was clean, comfortable and very pleasantly decorated. When A/C stopped working one day, a call to the owner and a repairman had it fixed within hours, which we really appreciated. The washer/dryer inside the condo was a great asset for the week. Our condo had a great view of the ocean only slightly blocked by a sand dune, and was on first floor with walkout, with outdoor chairs to sit out and watch the waves. Appreciated pool and boardwalk furniture available at Bahia Mar, and outside showers for body and feet at top of steps leading down to beach. The security on site helped us feel safe. Note that no visitors are allowed on the property. We enjoyed shopping, visiting Sea Turtle Inc (a sea turtle rescue and educational spot), located very close by - good for any age, and trying out some local restaurants. Our favorite seafood restaurants were Sea Ranch and Pier 19, both located on the bay side, and good Mexican restaurant La Hacienda, also right on the bay. Our favorite breakfast place was (Cash Only) Manuel's at Port Isabel...unique, reasonable and full of character. :) Blackbeards was also a good place for fried seafood and burgers, with large portions. We also enjoyed walking just down the beach to Clayton's Bar and listening to live music on a Friday night, and hunting for scurrying crabs at night with flashlights.

Owner's Response: Glad you and your family had a wonderful time. The Bahia Mar is the best place to stay on the island. Hope to see you again.

2nd Year Stay

  • 5 of 5
For the 2nd year in a row my Mother and I stayed in this condo on the coast. We went later this year as we had a family member with health issues that delayed getting away to the beach. The weather was great! Cooler than in September and actually liked the temperature better than our previous stay in September the year before. The Sand Castle festival was going on the weekend we arrived and it was fun to walk a short distance down the beach to Clayton's to view the artists creating their sand castle art. An Aunt joined my mother and I this year and she had a great time. She had knee surgery the year before so the location so close to the sand & water was perfect as she did not have to walk far to enjoy the beach. She sat in her chair either on the condo patio or on the beach and read 4 books during our stay. She said that was a special treat to have that kind of time to relax and enjoy her books. As a busy grandmother she doesn't get that opportunity these days. I do wish Bahia Mar would change the ocean front steps to a ramp for wheelchair access to the beach. I have a Sister who handicapped and would be nice to just rent a beach wheelchair (already found the company right on the island who will deliver/pickup one) and just wheel her from the condo to the water front. However, only a few stairs for those that are not wheel chair bound. Since Mom and I knew our way around the island and Port Isabel a bit from the year before we enjoyed showing my Aunt our favorite shops and restaurants. We ventured to the Turtle Rescue facility and drove around looking at sand-castle art spread throughout the island. As we were leaving and crossing the causeway bridge to Port Isabel heading home, we saw a dolphin in the bay poking his head out of the water as is to wave goodbye! Made me smile and felt was a good omen. We are already planning a 3rd trip back in the Spring of 2015 and hoping to bring my Sister to enjoy our new found beach hide-a-way!

It was over way too soon

  • 5 of 5
We rented the condo for a month and were wondering where the time went. Bahia Mar is the #1 resort on the island and this is surely the best condo rental at the Bahia Mar. If you like beachfront, if you like a great view of the water, this is the condo for you.

The owner is responsive and the staff is first rate. The view is to die for and the security is comforting. We ARE coming back.

Wonderful Vacation Spot!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I took our son and his family to South Padre for a vacation. Grandkids are age 5 and 2. This condo was very clean and much larger than it looks in the pictures. With 6 people in a 2 bedroom condo, we were not crowded at all. There was plenty of room in common areas as well as room to have our own space. We loved that it was on the ground floor. Everything we needed, trash and laundry were very close by. The deck with outdoor furniture was great to sit and watch the ocean as well as the fireworks on Fri and Sat night. It was so close to the beach that it was really easy to go back and forth if we forgot something or need something. We rented a canopy and chairs from Bahia Mar and that was also convenient. The beds were super comfortable and waking up to the sound of the ocean was heavenly! The kitchen was well stocked with baking equipment. I did some baking for my daughter in law who can't have gluten. The kitchen had a hand mixer and all sorts of things that are typically not in a rental. We are planning another stay in June. This is our new favorite place to stay in South Padre!

Terrific beachfront ground floor unit! Get all the costs settled first!

  • 4 of 5
We stayed in this first floor beachfront unit Bahia Mar on South Padre Island over Spring Break '14. Three adults, three boys under 12, and zero beer bongs. This is a great pet friendly first floor unit facing the beach. It is bigger than it looks on the site and can easily hold 8 because the trundle bed in the master bedroom is a twin with a stow away underneath. The place has large 24" smooth tile flooring throughout making it easy on the pets and easy to keep clean of sand.

There are large windows facing the beach and the dunes 20 feet from your patio are low enough that you can see and hear the ocean waves throughout the condo. The unit is well equipped with lots of little extras that mean a lot: a really productive ice maker in the fridge; foldaway playpen for the tiny tikes; a supply of plastic sand toys; a few leftover boogie boards to get your guys hooked; blender; lots of pots and pans; plastic drink-ware; full size washer and dryer; a few low beach chairs if you don't want to haul your own. The coded door lock was ultra convenient and we were checked in and beaching within 10 minutes of pulling up. Parking was convenient and easy to the condos location, but expensive, (see Below).

The den has a large flat panel TV with HDMI and composite video inputs. The cable channels offered are a pretty extensive package. There is also a DVD player and some DVDs if you need them. Each bedroom also has a 19ish inch tube cable connected TV, one with a built in VCR. The king bed in the master was a firm comfortable pillow top, probably not more than 3 years old I guess. The linens were fresh and quality. You can tell the place is kept in good shape to make your stay pleasant and comfortable and not "just good enough".

My only caveat about this unit's (and all This owners units) is make sure you have all the costs associated with renting understood BEFORE sending your deposit. I wired my deposit after she and I had exchanged emails and agreed on the rate for the 4 days. She sent via snail mail a contract for me to sign with a Post It note explaining we'd have to pay Bahia Mar's security fee per adult for security wrist bands, and pay her a per car parking fees, and another optional fee to her for WiFi. I was disappointed when I arrived and explained to the security guards that I had already paid the parking fee they said, " huh? She always does that. All are units come with two free parking spaces." Message me for details.

This is my third stay in this condo and I plan on having a 4th, 5th, etc stays too! Everything was in perfect working order. It's really nice to have everything you need at hand and the security at the resort is friendly and on top of things. I'll be back next year!
