A true home away from home! Every room was so well furnished. Extra pillows, extra towels, plenty of serving ware in the kitchen. The location to everything was just perfect. I felt like we were in the center of all the businesses up and down Padre Blvd. We were able to walk to many places. We were in SPI for a cheer competition so there were several families there. Many were quite envious of our location and accommodations. We had more than enough room and we were paying about the same as many of the other families who only had hotel rooms/suites with micro/fridges!

The owner and real estate company went above and beyond when it came to taking care of us!! They made the entire rental process so easy!!

You will be more than pleased if you stay at this house!!

Thanks Bill and Christy!!!

Mother Daughter first ever annual trip

  • 5 of 5

We came down to celebrate first ever mother daughter trip there were 8 of us total and we had an absolute blast. The house was perfect. The pool is incredible and we spent most of our time there. The beach is within walking distance and we spent one day there. We did the horseback riding which was great and watched fireworks Friday night. I would and will highly recommend this home for an AWESOME vacation stay!!! Can't wait to book it again.

Amazing! Perfect for all 12 of us

  • 5 of 5

We are already planning when we can rent the house again next summer. The way it's set up with separate upstairs and downstairs actually worked out really well. The backyard is absolutely amazing. We spent every evening either in the pool or just relaxing by it. We had people ranging from every age including the youngest who was 2yo and the oldest who was 83. The morning of day 8 came way too quick. John and Shirley the property owners are super nice people and wonderful to work with. We will see you next year!

Fantastic Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

There were 12 people in my family that stayed at this location and it was wonderful!! Everything we expected and more. The pool was the best hangout after spending the day on the beach. Clean and comfortable. Short walk to beach was no problem and we took our own chairs and umberellas. The public beach was clean and roomy because no large hotels nearby. Excellent choice!!

Nothing compares to this beautiful beach house!

  • 5 of 5

I am really really late writing this review, but it REALLY needs to be done. Mr. and Mrs. Harlan have gone to great lengths to make this the most comfortable, relaxed, and beautiful beach home you will find.

First of all, they have EVERYTHING in the house that you could possibly need for your stay. We have stayed in other beach homes in Padre that were okay, but they didn't have the simple things you might need like pots and pans. Who wants to go on vacation and have to buy basic essentials such as these? There were 8 of us last year, My husband and I and our three kids, my parents and my aunt. We all slept very comfortably and had PLENTY of room.

Secondly, the home is in a perfect location. VERY short walk to the beach access down the street and restaurants around the corner.

Third, we had a few problems getting settled in the morning we arrived (there was a water leak on the next street that killed everyone's water) and the management they have taking care of the property met us there within 15 minutes and stayed with us until it was fixed - even explained where we would find the best things to do in Padre!

FOURTH, my mother left all of her jewelry in a drawer the morning we left to come back to Dallas. They found it and mailed it back to us within a few days. You absolutely CANNOT beat being able to trust people!!

Finally, and the BIGGEST reason for choosing this house, is the INCREDIBLE backyard and pool!! You wouldn't think you would need a pool being so close to the beach - people come to Padre to go to the beach, right? The owners have gone to great trouble to provide a tropical backyard that makes you completely forget there is anyone else on the island. The plants are amazing and there are some pink flowers that have the sweetest smell I have ever encountered. The pool was CLEAN and beautiful. My family spent more time in the pool than we did at the beach. It was so awesome to be able to walk out the back door and relax when we were worn out from the beach - the kids were NEVER bored.

All in all, I do not know of anything more Mr. and Mrs. Harlan could have done to make our stay more enjoyable. We hope to stay again this year!! Nothing else even compares!

Thank you Mr. and Mrs. Harlan for a vacation we will never forget.

Nearest Airport

Brownsville, Texas

Beach-related activities are countless. South Padre Island’s latitude is comparable to that of Fort Lauderdale in Florida. Average water temperatures vary from 77 to 83 degrees from May through October. January, the “coldest” month of the year on the Island, has air temperatures that have an average low of 52 degrees and high of 68 degrees. The Schlitterbahn Beach Waterpark is great for family entertainment. A vacation to South Padre Island is unique because you can experience the surf on the Gulf side with the calmer water of the Laguna Madre on the Bay side. Sunsets on the Bay (where many restaurants and bars are located) are spectacular. Every Friday night between Memorial Day and Labor Day there is an extensive fireworks show Not to be missed is the SPI Birding and Nature Center, the Sea Turtle rescue and rehabilitation center, and watching dolphins play off of the southern tip of Isla Blanca park. A trip to Matamoros, Mexico is only 30 miles away near Brownsville, TX.

Other Activities: parasailing, dolphin watching, and Schlitterbahn Water Park
