Overview

Texas Gulf Coast House Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6

Located on desirable Gulf Boulevard, this breezy Key West style beach house offers wide views of the beach from the private balcony. A porch swing and rocking chairs make it the perfect place to relax after beach time.  Beach access is directly across the street.

Inside, the house is richly finished with marble floors, granite counters, and plush, upscale furnishings.  An LCD or plasma television is in every bedroom, as well as the den.  The master bathroom has a jetted tub.  The kitchen is fully equipped.  The unit is equipped with a washer and dryer.  All linens are provided.

Conveniently located in the center of South Padre Island, it is walking distance to outdoor entertainment (great for teens), restaurants, and even the island grocery store.  Across the street is the shuttle stop for the FREE  Island shuttle (another teen favorite).

Four to six guests can sleep comfortably as shown.   Well-behaved pets are accepted with owner's approval for a small daily fee.

Provided are beach chairs, beach umbrellas, beach towels, sand toys, boogie boards, bikes, and more. Downstairs is an outdoor shower to rinse sand after beach time.

Want to fish? Our guests receive a discount on private fishing in the Laguna Madre.

This property is registered with the City of South Padre Island, permit no. 2015-140091

Great place and location

  • 4 of 5

What can I say....we had such a great time in South Padre and here at Lynn and Kevin place. The unit was clean and the kitchen well stocked. We loved having access to the beach chairs and umbrellas. Both, Captain Kevin and Lynn were helpful when we needed something but also gave us our space. My husband and kids went fishing with Captain Kevin and then we ate fish tacos when they got home with their catch. Yummy!!! The only reason I didn't give 5 stars was because the wifi didn't work great BUT we are on vacation and shouldn't be on our electronics, right?? Thank you Lynn and Captain Kevin for everything. We didn't want to leave so we will be back!!

Rocking on the porch and watching the waves.

  • 5 of 5

We spent two months here. Our first time in this area. First about the unit. Unit is very roomy, two bedrooms and two baths. One bath has a walk in shower that I really enjoyed. Kitchen is very well stocked. The micro went out while we were there and they replaced it very quickly. We spent a lot of time on the porch in the rocking chairs watching the world go by. It was really nice to escape the winter snow and cold. This was a new area to us and we enjoyed the new things to see. Lots of good places to eat. My two best picks are Louie's Backyard and Café on the Beach at the Palms lodge.

The owners are very friendly and respond very quickly to requests. They are friendly but will respect your private space if you want. We spent a lot of time talking to them both about the area and other topics.

This a very nice unit, great for four and could handle six. Try it, you will like it. And did I mention the rocking chairs?

Lynn and Kevin will do all they can to make your stay enjoyable.

Excellent rental!

  • 5 of 5

The condo looks exactly like the photos. It's absolutely beautiful. The owners were very gracious, yet they did their own thing. We especially LOVED the quick access to the beach! My family & I had the BEST time and look forward to returning again as soon as possible!! :)

Excellent accomdations! We loved it..

  • 5 of 5

Excellent to the max! So personal and so perfect....bookcase full of books, kitchen fully stocked with all necessities , stereo system for our personal music, décor with a loving touch, rooms decorated with softness of the beach. We have traveled so much and this is five star plus! Love went into this home to be a place away from home. Lynn and Kevin wonderful "landlords" and friends to all who stay here. Beach steps away......sunset coming up precious.

A big thank you! Our stay was one of the best because of the special touches and caring of the owners. Capt. Kevin will find you the best fish to catch for your dinner!

Best place to relax, walk, read, think and just enjoy South Padre Island! Our beloved dog, Jessie, will always remember the kindness and love from Kevin and Lynn, son Conner and their beloved border collie, Boru.

Go and love it!

Best regards and thank you

Linda and Rich McCarthy and Jessie
