South Padre Island is a wonderful place to relax on the beach or go to the north end of the island and drive on the beach.

Guestbook comments from the owner

From the perfect weather, to the eat off the floor clean home, we had a wonderful time in SPI and the house was more then we ever imagined. I was a little nervous using a management company over the internet, but the entire transaction and details were so smooth and easy, I am so glad I found you. The house was absolutely beautiful. The pictures do not show just how large and beautiful the home is. Everyone we met was warm and very friendly. The pool/yard personnel keep everything in perfect condition. They were very helpful also, and we could not have asked for a better place to stay. Bill and Michael are excellent hosts and Very nice people. They are gracious and has a wealth of knowledge about the island. We look forward to staying at their rental again and have already booked the Beach Walk house for Sept 6-13 with them again. Carmela and I wanted to write you and say a million “thank yous -Bless you and thank you a million times for making our vacation the most memorable ever. We can not tell you how pleased we were right from the very beginning and for anyone who may read this review and think I’m exaggerating… I’m truly not.

With most sincere gratitude.

Great Home Away from Home!

  • 4 of 5

The house is exactly as described in the pictures. The pool is smaller than it looks in the photos but very enjoyable for the 6 of us and my dad really appreciated the heated water so it was not cold. Functional appliances and very comfortable king beds in two of the rooms. They could use some better kitchen utensils and bath towels but what they had was serviceable. The only negative thing I can say is that the wifi went out every single day we were there in the middle of the day. It was consistently out between about 10am and 7pm every day. I will say that I called it in for service as well as a smoke detector that was chirping and they came right out to fix the problem. The wifi worked when the serviceman left but was out again in a few hours and intermittently out every day so I timed my work for early mornings so I could get it done before the wifi went out. I didn't call back for the repair person to come back, we just worked around it and enjoyed our time on the island. The house is conveniently located and only a short walk to the beach. We loved having the washer and dryer for our swim clothes and beach towels. A great time was had by all!

Excellent choice for family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four (two adults, kids age 8 and 14) loved this rental! The decor is bright and cheery, the beds are comfortable, the kitchen is well-stocked, and there is a full sized washer and dryer in the garage. Of course the favorite feature was the private pool and hot tub out back. The backyard is set up nicely with Adirondack chairs and a table set, and there is a gas grill available for use. The pool was the perfect temperature, and was well maintained. It's small, but perfect for floating in and relaxing. The walk to the beach is not too bad; maybe 5 minutes with kids? The management company was excellent; I've rented vacation homes around the world, and I found this to be one of the most professional and responsive companies that I have dealt with. There are great restaurants within a few minutes drive from this home. It is really a great, central location. I think 4-6 people for this house is probably optimal, based on its size.

Clean, functional and well equipped

  • 5 of 5

I can't even recall what it cost, but it was worth it. It's an older place, but well cared for. SPI Real-estate Propery management was johnny on the spot with any little problem we had. Couldn't figure out the TV controller, they sent a guy out in 10 minutes. You won't be disappointed.
