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 House in 1998
Why Wayne Dodd chose South Padre Island
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 House 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.

We flew from Toronto, Canada to Dallas and drove 11 hours to get to this beach house. The home owner set the tone of our trip- he was warm and friendly and answers questions fairly quickly. The recommendations he made for deep sea fishing and seafood market did not disappoint. The house is very clean, and spacious. We loved the private beach access. The second floor deck was our overall favourite.
We will definitely be coming back and renting this place in the near future.
Thank you very much for taking the time to write a review for the Texas Beach House.
Taking a trip from Canada to visit our island here in Texas takes a lot of planning for you and your family, so I want to make your experience the best possible.
Glad you had a great time playing in the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico.
See you next time, thanks again
Beautiful location but run down property!
Beautiful location on the beach.....check in was very smooth. A wall unit AC (this first floor room did not have central AC and had a wall unit for some reason, rest of the house has central AC) did not work the 3 nights we were there and the family assigned to that room had to sleep in the living room ! The manager/owner sent someone to take a look at the AC but I was told that it could not be fixed till the day we were leaving....bad management right there, we rented all the 3 floors and the least you expect is the owner to say that he would refund the money for that one room since it was not usable during our stay but the response was that he did the best he could!! We checked in on March 30 and checked out on April 2, 2018 (Easter weekend). We understand that its the weekend but we paid weekend rates so we expected the same kind of service.
Two of the bathroom doors did not lock and had incidents when someone opened the door accidentally... pretty embarrassing situation! The owner did offer to put a number lock on one of the bathroom doors on the last day of our stay because that is what he had handy.
The wood deck is falling apart to the point that a plank fell a few inches away from where one of our friends was sitting outside on the first floor patio.
The bedroom closets and the kitchen on the second floor had cockroaches walking around. We understand that its a beach property but when you are paying premium rates, you don't want to be encountering such creepy things around your food and clothes!!
Thank you for taking the time to make your review.
I'm sorry that you had such a negative time at the beach house.
Ill try to address some of the issues:
The Minisplit AC that stopped working is an extra unit in an already fully air-conditioned property, encompassing all rooms. (3 large units)
The Minisplint was installed in the first floor east side bedroom as it has lots of windows, so to make it extra comfortable for our guests.
Our contracted AC company visited property (weekend service, even holidays) to replace a circuit board, but unfortunately unable to get expedited delivery on a Sunday from an out of state supplier.
When advised of door lock not working on bathroom, I personally drove the 60 miles to get a new one and install the same day, however vacationer stated don't worry about it.
Not sure of any planks that fell, we have had an independent adjuster check this issue, none was found.
As with every oceanfront property on the beach sand, this property has regular Orkin treatment for all types of bugs.
We strive for a great experience and do our best to make vacation time on the beach fun and comfortable for all our guests.
Thanks again for you input
Excellent stay with great amenities!!!
The property was very nice. Everything was incredibly clean and worked excellently. Wayne was a great host and we would definitely stay there again.
Thanks for your review, glad you had a great Spring break vacation at the Texas beach house
Your very welcome to come back to SPI and enjoy the oceanfront deck!!
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!!!
Thank you for taking the time to review our property.
We are glad that you had a great experience with your family on the beach and we feel fortunate that our Texas Beach House was able to be a part of it.
Hope to see you again in future travels.
Wayne and Lori
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.

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.
Thank you for taking the time to write a review of our Texas beach house.
Feedback is very important to us as we strive to provide the best accomodations and vacation experience for you and your family.
