About the property

There are 3 very spacious bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms, our condo sleeps 8.

YOU WILL NOT FIND A BETTER VIEW OF THE BEACH! Our 3rd floor South Padre Island beachfront rental condo has a perfect view of the Gulf of Mexico, not too high so you can't see the beach & not too low where sand dunes block the view. We are located right next door to Schlitterbahn Water Park. There are 3 very spacious bedrooms & 2 full baths. The master bedroom, living & dining room have a breathtaking floor-to-ceiling view of the ocean. Every room has a cable TV & DVD player. The living room has an LCD TV & new queen sleeper sofa. There are 50+ various DVDs provided. We and our complex provide free WiFi internet service for your electronic devices. The master has a king bed & a private bathroom. The 2nd bedroom has another king bed & a set of bunk beds (recommended for children). The 3rd bedroom also has a king bed and a set of bunk beds (recommended for children). The balcony stretches the width of the unit with a beautiful view of the gulf. The full size kitchen has new appliances & all the utensils. There is a washer/dryer in the unit. Beach toys, boogie boards, beach chairs & umbrella are provided.

Activities: Picture a relaxing vacation filled with water sports, golfing, horseback riding, dolphin watching, and swimming or snorkeling from sunrise to sunset! And imagine, watching the beautiful sunset while enjoying live music at one of the many superb waterfront restaurants located just blocks away! The white sandy beaches of South Padre are known throughout the world as some of the top beaches in America. The Island is famous for its secluded beaches, magnificent sunsets, and unspoiled natural sand dunes. The moderate temperatures year-round make South Padre Island the perfect spot in the continental United States for vacationers to play in the sun (why settle for Florida's rain and humidity?). And remember, Mexico is only thirty minutes away if you are interested in going south of the border to shop or sightseeing.

Schlitterbahn Water Park: For a day of wet and wild fun walk over to the Schlitterbahn Beach water park and experience an exotic island adventure! Schlitterbahn was rated the #1 water park in the United States by the Travel Channel. While the kids splash in the water, sip an exotic drink in the swim-up bar. Then dine on the breeze-swept terrace and enjoy the live entertainment. The centerpiece of the water park is Rio Aventura, a lazy river which turns to crazy as you speed through whitewater rapids, and carries you into water coasters that blast you uphill on jets of water then right back down with stomach-lifting drops. Or you can branch off the Rio Aventura on two tube chutes. For family fun there’s the award-winning Sand Castle, a five-story-tall water fun house complete with water cannons, geysers, dumping buckets, slides and over 200 hands-on water toys. Plus for toddlers, there’s the shaded, soft-foam water toys of Squid Row.

About Lana & Nick Strub

We are a family of four with two boys. We live in the Twin Cities area in Minnesota and are die hard hockey fans. With the extreme winters in MN it isn't hard to see why South Padre Island is our favorite place in the world.

Lana & Nick Strub purchased this condo in 2005

Why Lana & Nick Strub chose South Padre Island

We decided to purchase a condo on the Gulf after staying in one in Florida. After much research and visiting the island we discovered South Padre was the place for our dream home. We also wanted to find the perfect family complex. Sea Vista was a perfect fit and we wouldn't trade our condo for any other.

A Great Anniversary Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I choose this beachfront condo in South Padre becasue how clean everything looked from the pictures. But we were still just a little worried about what it would really look like when we arrived. We were so very pleased with the location and the condition of the condo. It was right on the beach and being on the 3rd floor was great for being able to get a full view of the Ocean from our bedroom when we went to bed and in the mornings. The condo was clean, updated, comfortable and so relaxing. Although my husband and I had a blast being alone it would have been fun to have grandchildren with us. The bedrooms were large and could sleep many comfortably. We had a great time even with the wind blowing and the rain coming down. We were able to watch the ocean from the bedroom, livingroom and kitchen area. We had a blast and plan on going again with the kids. What a great find.

Grandma is ready to become a beach bum!

  • 5 of 5

We so enjoyed our stay at this lovely beachside condominium. Plenty of bedroom space; three bedrooms with sleep space for 10 counting 2 bunk beds. Lovely balcony view of the Gulf of Mexico from our 3rd floor. Quiet resident hours insured a good night’s sleep. Plenty of beach equipment. Elevators and luggage racks made loading and unloading a breeze. The living room space/dining area is a bit tight, but it worked for our smaller group. We loved being so close to the ocean/beach. Off season for Schlitterbaun meant we had a very small crowd. Pool and hot tub were a great addition for when we wanted to forego the sand and saltwater. Nick and Lana are excellent hosts that maintained contact and made us feel like any problems would be quickly taken care of. We had no issues during our stay.

Plenty of food options nearby and be sure to visit Port Isabel and the town square during your trip. It was Grandma’s birthday trip and her first sandy beach experience. She loved it and is ready to become a beach bum!

Epic Trip

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to South Padre and we loved it. My son called it our "epic" trip. The condo was perfect. Close to the beach. Tons of beach toys, chairs, umbrella. Awesome view. We walked to the awesome water park. (The condo office has discount) We have rented VRBO condos for our family in Disneyland, Jackson Hole, St. George, UT and this one was the best. Loved it.

Very nice with great views and perfect access.

  • 5 of 5

This was a very nice place to stay. It had great access to the beach and an area that was less crowded. Beach was very clean.

We had great views in master bedroom, living area and kitchen. Beds were all in nice shape and very comfortable.

Parking was good too, it was gated so always had a spot and felt car was very safe. We saw security making regular rounds.

Owners were great – gave us what we needed but not intrusive in anyway.

Car: recommended

Our beachfront vacation home rental is ideally situated in a pristine condo complex (Sea Vista) located directly on the beach, right next door to the popular Schlitterbahn Water Park. It’s a prime location for a vacation condo, on the southern tip of the island near the Isla Blanca Park, Texas’ crown jewel of parks. It’s a quiet complex that only allows rentals to families and adults 25 or over.

There are two heated pools, two Jacuzzis, two tennis courts in the complex and it has a gated entry with 24 hour staff/security.

Golf: The South Padre Island Golf Club is nearby, located on the mainland in Laguna Vista. The popular golf course is well mainteined and overlooks the Laguna Madre bay.
