Overview

South Padre Island Condo Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms / 2.5 baths / sleeps 6

Our home is designed for comfort and convenience and yet is one of the lowest priced 2 bedroom units in the Sunchase IV Resort. It has granite countertops in the kitchen and bathrooms, washer-dryer in the unit, filtered water and ice in the refrigerator door, and two recliners in front of the flat-screen HDTV in the living area. TVs in each bedroom and ceiling fans in all rooms. This is our home in the winter each year and so we know when something needs to be added or replaced.

The amenities provided by Sunchase IV Resort are unique -- 2 pools (one heated), 2 hot tubs, 2 tennis courts, 2 air-conditioned racquetball courts , 2 air-conditioned ping-pong rooms, a fitness center, a seventh floor sundeck, and a library. The racquetball courts also accomodate badminton and pickleball. Of course the main attraction at South Padre Island is the beach which is just outside our East gate.

.If you are looking for more space, checkout our other condo in the same complex - HomeAway # 331934.

Suitability:
  • Long-term Renters Welcome
  • Low Allergen Environment
  • children welcome
  • non smoking only

About Dean and Martha Isaacson

Dean (professor) and Martha (administrative assistant) both retired recently from Iowa State University (Ames, IA). We have four children and eight grandchildren. They all enjoy spending a week or more in the winter on the beach with us each year. We spend six months in Texas as 'snow birds' and the rest of our time in Iowa, Colorado, and visiting children/grandchildren. We have decided to avoid snow!

Dean and Martha Isaacson purchased this condo in 2004

Why Dean and Martha Isaacson chose South Padre Island

We wanted this second property in Sunchase IV to accommodate our friends and family when they visited. In 2004 we bought this property which is just down the hall from our first condominium. (See #331934 for our first property.) We loved the architecture at Sunchase IV and found the amenities to be perfect for us. We regularly use the heated pool, hot tub, racquetball courts and beach. When we are not actively enjoying the options, we love the view of the beach and the water!

What makes this condo unique

South Padre Island has a variety of good restaurants and entertainment opportunities. We enjoy the fact that it offers both gulf and bay fishing close to the condo. The air conditioned racquetball courts are rare in a condominium complex and we use them often. The FREE bus allows one to get to any venue without needing to drive.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This was our first time staying at Sunchase IV and this unit was very nicely furnished. It made us feel right at home. The only suggestion is a chair in the master bedroom. The unit is very nicely decorated & welcoming. We will definitely be coming back to Sunchase IV! Thanks! OWNER COMMENT: Thanks for the suggestion. We have added a chair to the master bedroom. We appreciate your suggestion.

Such a Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

We really loved this condo. It had a great view and so much room to just spread out and relax after a tiring day at the beach swimming. There was only a couple of issues. The sliding door off the living room did not lock...which really didn't bother us since security was so good. Also the bath tub did not have hot water. Not sure why...so everyone just had to take a shower in the master bath. I did address this with the main office and they said it is probably just the reverse...yet I told them that was not the case. The water would never get hot, no matter what you did. None the less it was a great stay and would recommend this location to anyone that asks.

Owner's Response: We are pleased to hear that you loved the condo on this return visit. We are baffled as to why the water did not get hot in the guest bath. Our maintenance staff checked it out and was unable to find any problem and they got hot water. The maintenance staff did repair the lock on the sliding door. Thanks for the alert on this.

Beautiful Condo

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in this awesome condo! It was very spacious and very clean! The bedrooms were very nice and the view from the balcony was gorgeous! Sometimes it was difficult to go out to the beach because it was just so comfortable staying in! We would definitely stay here again next time we visit!

EXCELLENT LOCATION and FAMILY FRIENDLY

  • 5 of 5

Our stay here was fabulous!! This condo is perfect for families. The beach access is very near and the condo has a wonderful view of the beach. Our 4 children felt very comfortable at this condo. They didn't want to leave. Once we finished our day at the beach we headed to the wonderful pools. The condo has everything that you would need for a wonderful vacation. The beds were very comfortable and the condo is decorated very nicely!!
