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 Texas Gulf Coast

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.

All time favorite condo!!

  • 5 of 5

I never thought I would be 100% satisfied with any condo, until I stayed at Sea Vista #317. The condo is much better than I ever imagined. It's very clean, updated, comfortable and very well taken care of. Everything you need and/or want is already here. We definitely did not want to leave. I've finally found my home away from home. We will be returning for many years to come. Thank you Lana and Nick for providing such a wonderful place for our family to stay.

Perfect Home Away from Home!

  • 5 of 5

I am so happy we found this property for our summer getaway. Everything was perfect! First, you can't beat the location or the view. The beach is super easy to access; literally just a few steps away and not crowded at all. We also enjoyed the sounds and scenery every evening from the balcony. I was a little bit worried about being so close to Schlitterbahn, but we really never noticed any extra people, noise or traffic.

Inside the condo we were more than a little impressed! The owners obviously take pride in their property and care for the comfort of their guests. From the laundry pods, to the face wipes, to the 5 or 6 fans we found throughout, to the beach toys, to the movies...I am sure I could go on! We found everything we needed and more. The beds were comfortable, the A/C worked great, and having a TV in every room was really nice as well. I really can't find very much to complain about except MAYBE for the small kitchen. Don't get me wrong - the kitchen had everything we needed and tons of counter space. But it was a little tight to have 2 people trying to cook or prepare meals at once. It certainly didn't ruin my vacation though and we intend to be back as soon as possible! If you're reading this review then you've found a great place to stay. Go ahead and book it now while you can!

So clean and such a wonderful view and very relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

The whole property was very clean and easily accessible to the beach. Our whole family enjoyed the view and everything just seemed very relaxing. The pool area was enjoyed by all of us in our party and it was never overcrowded or dirty. Very well maintained!!! We would definitely come back and recommend this condo on Sea Vista property. Just a really great vacation and it helps when where you lay your head at night and the place your staying feels like home!!! Thank You!!

Only have good things to say

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed in this condo twice now. It's in a convenient location for walking to a couple of popular restaurants as well as Schlitterbahn. The property is well-maintained and safe; the security personnel are visible and helpful. The owners are easy to work with. The condo itself has very comfortable mattresses and an extremely well-equipped kitchen. There is also a new washer and dryer which our family especially appreciated. The beach is beautiful. We've stayed in several SPI condos -- this is one of our favorites.
