SPI Permit # 2015-362500

In 2000, South Padre Island was named the 7th best beach in the United States of America by the Surfrider Foundation, whom based it on water quality, sand softness, and wildlife. South Padre Island was the only Texan beach to make the top 10 and earned marks for its mouth savoring restaurants. So come to stay with us and discover South Padre Island today!

Build beautiful sandcastles on the beach or go horseback riding on the beach! Dolphin watching is a must for those whom love marine mammals. Charter a boat and cruise around the tropical island. Go fishing or deep sea fishing in the place known as Texas's hottest fishing spot, and drop your line from a boat, a pier, or cast out into the surf. Whiting, drum, flounder, trout, redfish, snapper, kingfish, wahoo, tuna, marlin, and sailfish are just a few types of fishes that you can reel in.

Some great alternatives for the water are golfing and playing tennis. For those nature lovers, visit the Laguna Atascosa National Wildlife Refuge, a 45,000-acre federal preserve for wildlife and bird watching, and learn more about these creatures through exhibits and sightings in their natural habitats. For the more thrill seeker, try skydiving and see the island from a bird's eye view.

Enjoy the fireworks! Sit on the beach in front of your house around 9 to 9:30 PM and watch the fireworks being displayed 1/2 mile away.

Summer fireworks every weekend!

About Caty Ramos - Property Manager

We purchased the home in November 2010 and have spent $30,000 in upgrades and keep improving it every year! We fell in love with the location and beach house feel of this property and its potential was clear from the start. It is one of the oldest homes on the island and when you had the entire island to choose from, this is where the original people choose to build. The reason is it is located at the northern end of the island in the 'single' family home section with a great beach in front.

My husband and I live here most of the year and rent it out to a few special people during the summer. We greatly enjoy the beach and water sports including kiteboarding.

Caty Ramos - Property Manager purchased this house in 2010

Why Caty Ramos - Property Manager chose Texas Gulf Coast

Why this property? Because of the lovely beach house feel, convenience to the beach, great backyard pool and hot tub, and lots of home touches like a fully stocked kitchen.

What makes this house unique

Unique benefits are sunrise on the front porch looking at the waves and beach and lots to do.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We had a great time, a little cold, but we enjoyed the beach very much.

Great Vacation with the family

  • 5 of 5

My family of 4 rented this property for a week and it exceeded our expectations. The pool was great, the location was even better. Crossed the street to the beach and enjoyed the ocean everyday. Property was clean, and had everything that we could want. As a first time home renter, I was amazed at the entire process...counldn't have been any better. We will stay here again on our next trip to SPI.

The house was perfect for a large family with children

  • 4 of 5

The beds were very comfortable and obviously new. We did have an AC issue but the owner immediately took care of the problem. One of the downstairs queen bedrooms we couldn't get the tv to work. The tiki bedroom was a huge hit with the kids.

I have to say that it was obvious that the garage had been transformed in to extra bedrooms and there was a step up to the laundry and tiki bedroom that caused many of us to trip and fall. Definantly not ADA approved. Lots of stairs everywhere.

Pool was the best! Beach access was wonderful.

We went at the middle of June and paid $5,500. I feel that was higher than the house was worth but over all it was a good vacation

Family vacation

  • 5 of 5

The property manager and owner were great to work with. The house was excellent for our needs and had the most fully stocked kitchen anyone could ask for. The easy access to the beach was great for the kids and the adults. The bikes were used daily, along with the wagon to haul stuff back and forth to the beach. After a full day at the beach the backyard pool was a relaxing place to rest and visit with the family. All the rooms had plenty of space and the king beds were very comfortable. The extra refrigerator downstairs was great for keeping drinks for everyone. Our family fully enjoyed out stay and are already planning our trip for next year. We have stayed in many places, but this house exceeds all others. Looking forward to staying here again.

Best Deal in Padre

  • 5 of 5

Patricia was easy to work with and always responsive. The house was clean and cool when we got there. The kitchen was fully stocked. The house came with the Bikes, a wagon to drag out stuff down to the beach, beach chairs pool toys, etc.

Recs I would make:

1. The Housekeeper showed up as we were unloading to unload the clean towels, lawn guy came to mow/landscape front and back, And then the pool guy came and had out friend get out so he could clean and shock the pool. These things could have easily been taken care of the day before we arrived so that it did not impede on us enjoying the house.

2. Check in was 3pm, that's normal. Check out was 10am. That's not. Give people at least until noon to clean up and get out.

3. The diving board is very unique, but it gets slippery. I would remedy this.

4. House instructions would be great, how to turn on the outside shower, how to work the TV, etc.

Over all we would totally recommend this place to friends and family and definitely consider coming back again. Thanks for a great trip!

Best Deal is South Padre

  • 5 of 5

The PM Patricia was super helpful easy to work with and always responsive. The house was clean and cool when we got there. Everything worked perfectly, the kitchen was fully stocked with all the pots, pans, plates, silverware you need. Mere steps from the beach. The house came with the Bikes, a wagon to drag out stuff down to the beach, beach chairs pool toys, etc.

Recs I would make:

1. The Housekeeper showed up as we were unloading to unload the clean towels and place in the room. No big deal. But then the lawn guy came to mow/landscape front and back. We were at the beach but it was a little inconvenient for those whom were using the pool area. And then the pool guy came and had out friend get out so he could clean and shock the pool which meant we couldn't get back in for an entire hour. I feel like these things could have easily been taken care of the day before we arrived so that it did not impede on us enjoying the house.

2. Check in was 3pm, that's normal. Check out was 10am. That's not. Give people at least until noon to clean up and get out.

3. The diving board is very unique, but it gets slippery. I would put some sort of grip strip tape or something to remedy this.

4. House instructions would be great, how to turn on the outside shower, how to work the TV, etc.

Over all we would totally recommend this place to friends and family and definitely consider coming back again. Thanks for a great trip!

Beach heaven

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the Padre beachfront house was magnificent. My family of 11 adults enjoyed the spacious rooms, and the large, open kitchen and entertainment rooms (including stereos and large TVs). The patio and pool out back also created another place to gather and hang out! Two rooms with king beds are upstairs with their own baths, and the three rooms downstairs (king, queen, tiki bunk beds) share a bath. All of the rooms are very quiet and have enough space. The outside pool is the best part. It offers a huge pool to cool off in after a long day at the beach, along with chairs and patio tables, even a wagon. We used the 6 bicycles every day. The location was right across the street from the beach with no obstructed view for morning risers who want to watch the sun come up! We loved it!
