About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms; Sleeps 6; NO PETS


This comfortable and relaxing two bedroom, two bath condo with HIGH-SPEED WiFi INTERNET is ideally situated just a block from the beautiful gulf beaches or from the Laguna Madre bay with popular nightlife, entertainment, and some of the best dining on the island.

Our recently remodeled condo comes with a full kitchen including microwave and a blender for your tropical margaritas. The kitchen includes everything you'd expect for a comfortable stay, including a washer and dryer. Our unit has wood-look vinyl plank floors and all furnishing are contemporary, including a large smoke-colored leather couch big enough to sleep on; but also contains a Queen-Size Hide-a-Bed. The master bedroom has a king-size bed, dresser and 32' Flat-Screen HDTV, while the second bedroom has a queen-sized bed with a huge walk-in closet. Living room has a 47' FLAT-SCREEN HDTV and a DVD player. A stereo with CD player and mp3 player input is situated under the counter at the kitchen bar . The high-speed WiFi Internet connection has WPA2 Personal security. Password provided at check-in. Ethernet cable is also available in the condo.

Location, Location, LOCATION: This relaxing two bedroom, two bath condo is our 'Winter Home' and we have it furnished with everything for our comfortable 5-month stay. It is ideally situated between the beautiful gulf beaches and the Laguna Madre Bay within easy walking distance of entertainment and dining. It has a private balcony where you can enjoy your morning coffee or favorite beverage while relaxing in the island breezes. You can see a bit of the bay by day, breathtaking sunsets at night, and a spectacular view of the entertainment district and summer fireworks at night.

While some of the best beach access, entertainment and dining is withing walking distance, two parking spots means you never have to worry about beach parking. You can easily walk to the beach and back to the condo for a snack, lunch, or a dip in the heated pool as often as you want. When the sun sets, it is again only a short walk to the bay to view spectacular sunsets. SORRY, NO PETS and NO SMOKING IN THE CONDO!

About Andy or Anita Vissers

Our permanent residence is in Wisconsin; however, since retiring, we have made this condo and South Padre Island our WINTER HOME from Thanksgiving to May each year!

Andy or Anita Vissers purchased this condo in 2006

Guestbook comments from the owner

We purchased this unit in 2006 for winter retirement in another year. We made it available for rent when we are not using it through a property manager. In 2007 we are handling the rentals ourselves. We have a guest book in the condo unit and have received nothing but positive comments from guests that have stayed there with several indicating that they plan to return. We're not able to list the guest comments individually because the book is in the condo and we are in Wisconsin. We are sure this unit will exceed your expectations! Andy and Anita Vissers

Guestbook Comment

Well equipped kitchen and we really liked the "home" feel of the place, not like the commercial concrete and steel tower condos. It is an excellent location; only a short walk to the beach but far enough from the noise of the main roads. Don't know the reason for fireworks Friday night, but we had a great view of it from the balcony...

Great location, clean comfortable condo near beach and close to restaurants and grocery stores.

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased to find a very clean condo equipped with all the essentials. It made us feel right at home.The weather was warm and humid during our stay, but the a/c functioned perfectly. Both showers had good water pressure with plenty of hot water. The beds and pillows were comfy and the complex was quiet and well maintained. We took great advantage of the balcony each morning. The property manager was responsive and everyone we met was friendly and helpful. The security deposit was promptly refunded.

The pool was great for lap swims and there is great access to the beaches nearby. We especially liked Beach Access #6 because it has a new above ground walkway with beach shower.

There are many restaurants nearby and all the ones we tried were very good. We enjoyed Yummies for breakfast, and Blackbeard and Sea Ranch for dinner. A drug store , two grocery stores, and the Birding and Turtle Rescue centers are also close-by.

This was my family's first experience using HomeAway and we were VERY pleased! The condo was described perfectly, had all of the amenities we needed, and was very close to beach. We were most impressed with the cleanliness of the condo; everything was very well-maintained. Sandy checked in with us on the day of our arrival and was a big help. We didn't require any assistance during our stay, as everything was throughly explained by Sandy or the "welcome to our condo" book provided. We would definitely stay here again and highly recommend.

Amazingly Beautiful.

  • 5 of 5

This was the best condo I've rented, extremely close to jet ski rental at the dock, and the beach access. Kitchen is fully stocked, I brought pots, pans, ect. You don't have to bring anything for cooking except food, lol. But if you are a person to take a few showers a day then you might want to bring extra towels. Two small downsides is you can't grill on the property, and no TV in the second bedroom. I still wish I can give them 10 stars. K. Morgan
