Overview

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. Our complex provides Wi-Fi 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 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.

The condo on the beach is fantastic and the perfect place for vacation.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time with our adult children. The condo is very clean and well stocked with everything you need for the kitchen and the beach. A king size bed and tv in every bedroom is an awesome perk. The location is great, we walked the beach to some restaurants as well as took the bus a couple of times. Lana and Nick are so easy to work with and everything was flawless in renting this condo. We will definitely be back in the future.

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.

Map

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.
