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.

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.

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.

Car: recommended

It’s a quiet complex that only allows rentals to families and adults 25 or over.

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.

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.

Amazing location and comfy, spacious bedrooms

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved our South Padre Island vacation at Sea Vista 317. We had an amazing view and short walk to the beach. There were more beds than we could use -- and all of them were comfortable. We appreciated the good washer and dryer and the clothes hanging lines in both bathtubs for drying our swimsuits. The hallway closet with beach chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards, and sand toys were enjoyed. The condo pool was warm and felt great after rinsing the beach sand off. We knew this condo is next to Schlitterbahn, but we were pleasantly surprised that the entrance to the indoor part was just right around the corner from the condominium entrance gate. A very short/easy walk. The indoor and outdoor waterpark are connected by an underground tunnel that goes beneath the road you drive on to enter Sea Vista Condominiums. We enjoyed the amenities and activities of this location so much that we only left the complex twice (to go out to eat). The Strubs were also great about communication. Our only regret was we wish that additional family could have joined us -- there was plenty of room.

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

Lana and Nick have a true gem in the condo they own and offer up on Home Away! We spent a week there last week and had one of the most wonderful weeks ever at a beach! The accommodations are perfect for an oceanside visit! The condo is well appointed and the owners provide lots of things you would not expect outside of a hotel. Everything was there that we needed throughout the condo! There is so much to do in South Padre Island and Port Isabel, just a short drive over the nice connecting bridge. Lana and Nick could not have been more accommodating and pleasant throughout our stay with their constant availability and contact! Even when something happened beyond their control, they kept us up to date on when the problem would be resolved and even went way beyond what they did not have to do to make it right for us! You will not be disappointed staying in this condo! We highly recommend it and hope to stay 2 weeks next time! Thank you, Lana and Nick for a superb vacation!
