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:
  • children welcome
  • wheelchair inaccessible
  • pets not allowed
  • non smoking only
  • Low Allergen Environment
  • Long-term Renters Welcome

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

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!

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.

My family and I had such a great time in SPI. The condo was so comfortable and well equipped with everything that we needed during our stay. The owner of this unit Martha was beyond helpful with all of my questions and concerns. I would definitely 100% recommend this condo unit to all my family and friends!! Thank you so much Martha for sharing your beautiful condo with all of us!!
Owner's Response: We are so pleased to hear you enjoyed our condo as much as we do when we are there. We love that our home offers other families a great time. We hope to host you again.

Such a Great Stay

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.

It made us feel right at home.

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.

We had a great time during our stay in unit 327. We had fun but at the same time we could relax. I can’t think of any thing that I disliked about unit 327, it seemed to have everything we needed. Thank you and God bless you.

Well furnished and so comfortable!

We had a comfortable and enjoyable stay in unit 327. It is well furnished and equipped. The only suggestion I have is the possible addition of wine glasses, although there is 1 wine and 1 martini glass. Owner Comment: We have added 12 wine glasses, 12 margarita glasses as requested by this guest. Martha Isaacson
