Why The Owner chose Texas Gulf Coast

We rented a condo at Sea Vista in 2008, and we were hooked! We were not actively looking for property, but just fell in love with this complex. We looked all over the island, but nothing was comparable. Having four boys, convenience is a priority. The convenience of having a Ground Floor unit is undeniable! The boys will play for hours on the sand and dunes while we either keep an eye on them from the patio or from either the master bedroom , living area or kitchen.

What makes this condo unique

We simply enjoy taking those morning walks on the beach. The boys will pull out the metal detector and continue to attempt to find those lost treasures from days of old. So far, the best treasure they have found was a Thomas the Tank train.... they have not given up hope.

A Little Bit of Paradise!!

  • 5 of 5

This property is in a perfect location on South Padre Island. We loved the ground floor with the view and easy access to the beach. The grounds were so clean and well-manicured. The condo is well appointed. It has all the comforts of home and then some. The security gate was a comfort and the security guard checked our car for the appropriate tag each time we entered. We would love to put this on our return list. A "diamond" of a property. Thanks for having us.

All we hoped it would be!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was everything we hoped it would be - and then some! Pictures accurately depict this little gem. Owners are exceptionally gracious and hospitable in the way they've furnished/supplied the condo. Our family of 4 had a trip to remember at SPI! Couldn't be any more convenient to the beach. Highly recommend this unit!!! We will be back!!

We had a fabulous time and really loved this condo! We have stayed at other condos in South Padre and other places on the Texas Gulf Coast, and this is by far our favorite. All the little touches, like the decor, patio w/ grill and chairs, beach toys, games, DVDs, etc. made it especially nice. We loved how close it was to the beach and the beautiful view. It took all our will power to actually leave and come back home!

We went to Schlitterbahn one day and this condo is so close we were able to walk and avoid the crazy parking situation there! We were also impressed with the Sea Vista security, how they walk the property multiple times a day, and several times we saw them questioning people they did not recognize and turning them away if they were not staying there.

My only hesitation in writing this review is we want the condo all to ourselves and would hate to see it become so popular we lose out on getting to stay there again!

Couldn't finish my review

  • 5 of 5

I wrote too much. Having just made a quick trip to Gulfport, I don't think I'll ever do that again. The beach is like Holly beach in LA compared to South Padre. The bed at Mari's condo - so comfy - as were the linens, towels, furnishings. We felt very much at home. Wish we could transport ourselves there every chance we could. Thank you Mari for making your vacation condo such a comfortable home. We are not sure when we will be back, but I guarantee you, as long as you own it, we will be back. And if you ever decide to sell it please let us know!

Amazing, fabulous, stupendous! Spoiled for anything else!

I must say that not exactly checking the length of our trip just in straight driving time but not adding to that travel with a 2 1/2 year old, made me wonder if we would ever arrive. Forgive my forgetfulness of the rough patches as my extremely busy schedule did not allow for a prompt review...but I believe it took us about 13 hours to get there whereas if it were just my husband and I it would have taken a little over 9. Our daughter was soooo tired of being in the vehicle and I thought "oh my gosh are we ever going to make it? And if and when we do this place better be worth it!" I was so frustrated and felt horrible for our daughter who was right in the midst of potty training (thank goodness we brought a potty). When we arrived I didn't think we would ever make it in the condo. It was late and I thought for sure we wouldn't find someone to get us in quickly. How wrong I was. The night security guard came around the corner from his constant rounds and got us all set up to load our house into the condo. And what a beautiful condo it was. The pictures do not do it justice. Not at all. That view cannot be captured except with your eyes. The sound of the gulf I can still hear. The close proximity to the beach is amazing and only once have I stayed somewhere almost as close. I was worried with our 2 year old that the few minute walk would be exaggerated. I think it took 1 minute to walk out the back door and down to the beach. Super easy to go back and forth and we did that all day. Our daughter woke up each morning and said "let's go!" And that's where we spent our week. I am a lawyer and need to be in constant contact. It was imperative for me that there was wifi. There was wifi but due to the quality construction built to withstand hurricanes no doubt, wifi provided by the condo was almost nonexistent. Mari came the day after we arrived and had her own personal internet installed. She is so polite and tried to get out of our hair as politely and quickly as possible. And the beach gear! Everything you could want was in the laundry closet (full size washer and dryer). We did not want for a single beach accessory...except for a beach umbrella. At the time of our arrival, the service that you can purchase to bring chairs and umbrellas to the beach had closed for the season. Luckily we had brought our wagon and it was no trouble at all to bring chairs to the beach. We asked Mari about an umbrella and she expressed her concern about the wind and how every umb
