About Wayne Dodd

Wayne, Lori, Temby and Roxy Dodd have owned this property for 18 years and have enjoyed meeting each guest that have stayed at the Texas Beach House.

Most reservations are for repeat customers that have come back year after year, some since before we purchased the property.

We live on South Padre and are always here to help with any questions for issues.

Wayne Dodd purchased this in 1998

Why Wayne Dodd chose Texas Gulf Coast

Our family moved here in 1996, we loved the island lifestyle, safe, relaxed, family orientated and lots of fun things to do.

What makes this unique

Absolute ocean front, great views, no streets to cross which is important for families in the busier periods.

The gazebo is a perfect relaxing spot for that late night Margarita or glass of wine.

Amazing stories from travelers from all over the world that we keep on the shelf of the Texas Beach House for all renters to read, enjoy and add their own vacation story.

Guestbook comments from the manager

This place is incredible. Our family had a wonderful time playing on the beach in front of the house, swimming, boogie boarding, looking for sand crabs and shells. Family oriented with all the toys necessary to have a great weekend on the beach. We will definately be back.

My family of 4 rented the second floor last week and I am so happy we did!! The house is beautiful, clean and in a great location. The 2nd floor has 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a spacious kitchen and living room area so we had plenty of room for the 4 of us. Wayne was extremely kind, helpful and available for any questions we had. The deck was FABULOUS and has several different places (including a gazebo) to relax and look at the water, lay out in the sun or have lunch in the shade. It also has private beach access and it's about 90 steps from the porch, through the dunes and on to the beach. Being able to walk off the deck and on to the beach was awesome!! We didn't have to take heavy coolers full of food and drinks to the beach because when anyone got hungry they just ran to the house to eat. It was convenient, beautiful and we made many happy memories at the Texas Beach House and plan to come back soon!!!

Family Reunion

  • 4 of 5

This property was perfect for our family reunion of 18 people (22 during the weekend). We rented all three floors and had enough room for each of us to have our own space as well as a larger space to eat dinner together (on the 2nd floor). The beach access was absolutely wonderful...being able to walk off the deck straight onto the beach was AWESOME! There was something for everyone: dolphin watching, parasailing, bungee jumping, snorkeling, pirate cruise, sun bathing, and even a water park.

The contact for the property was always available and very accomodating. In fact, while we were there the satellite dish fell apart during the Olympics. He was able to get someone there within two days to replace it, which is no small feat. He even offered to let us watch the Olympics at the house he was staying at down the street while it was out.

Thanksgiving 2011 ,

  • 5 of 5

Spent the Thanksgiving holidays in the 2nd level condo in the Texas Beach House. We found the condo to be spacious, clean and accommodating. The amenities were complete as listed, totally first rate with a kitchen suited to allow one to prepare whatever suits your fancy. The back deck was quite spacious and very private and leads to a beach gazebo with your own private beach access. The South Padre beach is undoubtedly the best Texas beach and the Texas Beach House is right in the middle of it. I recommend this accommodation to you and I will definitely return myself next time I'm on the Texas coast.
