Free Island Transportation: 'The Wave' offers free transportation on the island and across the Queen Isabella causeway into the town of Port Isabel. Chain stores like Wal Mart and Bealls are located in Port Isabel. The Wave runs often up and down the length of the island and you can get all the information at the Visitors Center, which is a short walk south of our condo.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have enjoyed staying here, as you have given us a very nice place to call home; thank you for all the thoughtful touches you have put into the condo. The other unit isn’t nearly as nicely appointed as yours. We would be happy to supply a good reference for the unit

The condo was excellent!!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed the week of Sept. 10-17 weather was just outstanding. Condo had a view of both the bay and ocean. Very clean with everything needed to cook your own meals or just relax in nice comfortable furniture. Bed was very comfortable. We highly recommend this unit and plan to use it again when we come back to the SPI.

Wow! What an amazing place to stay...clean, inviting, amazing views and accessibility to beach

  • 5 of 5

Wow! What an amazing place to stay..we had a fabulous time staying at this homeaway...It was clean, very nicely appointed with comfortable beds. Great directions given to find the condo....Easy access to great restaurants and beach. I wanted to really try Civeche, Civeche and it ended up right behind the condo! We really enjoyed Louie's Backyard with it buffet and fireworks..Great food! The pool was enjoyed in the evening after a day at the beach...Loved the fact that we could go out on the patio and enjoy the site and sounds of the beach and ocean but then return to the living room and the sound was gone thanks to the great glass doors ...sound proof...the kitchen had all kinds of helpful items to make our stay easy...loved getting up early and make coffee and watch the sun rise..AMAZING VIEW. We enjoyed going on Murphy's Law to watch dolphins and out into the Gulf to get a sense of the differences in water currents and history of the area. .I really can't say enough about this lovely homeaway site...one of the best if not the best we have experienced..thanks for having such a great place for others to enjoy at a great price... Appreciated quick responses to any questions......we will be back!

South Padre not the best vacation we've had

  • 3 of 5

The condo was clean when we arrived we were unable to open the blinds on one the bedrooms however overall the Condo was fine.

We were disappointed with the neighbors and the loud unruly behavior and drinking that went on at the pool and in the late into the evening

We received a call from property management to not hang our beach towels on the balcony so that could have been avoided if we had known this rule.

For the price the place was fine it was the outlying nonsense that created an unpleasant stay from time to time that had nothing to do with the owners of the condo however it should have been dealt with bythe property management company they had time to call me about some silly towels hanging on the balcony they should of had plenty of time to call on the behavior that was disruptive to our stay as well as others I'm sure.

Owner's Response: We are always sorry for anything that interferes with a perfect vacation. We will be forwarding this issue to building management and Board of Directors. The building management is normally very quick to stop disturbances but sometime with some travelers coming for partying and some coming for quiet relaxation these goals collide. We encourage guests to contact security any time they are concerned about conditions, and to call us if they still have concerns as we are glad to intercede on our guests behalf.

Fantastic experience

  • 5 of 5

I would like to thank Mr & Mrs Larson for opening their condo to us. This is our first HomeAway experience and it was fantastic. The condo was accommodated with everything we needed for our stay. The pool was wonderful, the beach was so close. We enjoyed the patio overlooking the pool. We look forward to next summer.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for the review. Of course we can't take credit for the beauty of the Gulf or Bay but our condo does give you a great spot to observe the beauty from

Another Perfect Year

  • 5 of 5

My family and I just completed our third stay at this condo. Every year we've stayed it has been PERFECT! You have beautiful views, a great amount of space, and are a quick walk away from the waves. The owners are kind and booking is quick and simple! I recommend this condo for small families-we are a family of 4 and this works perfect!
