Overview

South Padre Island Condo Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedroom, 2.5 Bathroom (Sleeps 5), within 10 yards of the water!

This beautiful condo will make your dream vacation on South Padre Island. Stunning views of the Laguna Madre from all rooms and the large outdoor deck. Private boat slip included, reserved car parking space, and access to the lovely condo association (shared) swimming pool. Lush tropical landscaping and grass all around the complex. Large shared fishing dock with evening spot lights (to attract the fish) and a fish cleaning table. This condo has the best views on the island for sunsets and for Friday night fireworks. Comfortably sleeps five people. Three flat screen TVs, stereo system (includes speakers on the deck), and high speed WiFi Internet.

While this is a new property rental listing with no renter reviews yet, we previously sold another rental property which had over 50 'rave' reviews and even more very happy former and repeat renters. We believe strongly in taking care of our condo and taking care of our guests!

This property is registered with the City of South Padre Island Permit No. 2015-455804.

About Peter & Robin

This condo has been our exclusive home away from home for the last six years, and we are just starting to rent it part time, beginning in the spring 2013. We love South Padre Island and plan to retire there. The above photo is our family, celebrating the release of an Atlantic Green turtle that we rescued from being snagged in a crab trap. We brought the turtle to Sea Turtle, Inc. (a non-profit sea turtle rescue & rehabilitation center on South Padre Island), and after a few months in their care... we released the turtle again to where we rescued it originally in the Laguna Madre. See http://www.seaturtleinc.org/ and visit them when you come to South Padre Island!

Peter & Robin purchased this condo in 2007

Why Peter & Robin chose Texas Gulf Coast

Our first condo on South Padre Island was on the Gulf side, but after falling in love with the Western exposure to the Laguna Madre, including the incredible sunsets and summertime fireworks... we soon found this condo and sold the other one. This condo 'IS IT' for us, and we are sure you will love it, too.

What makes this condo unique

Check out the second photo, taken from a boat on the Laguna Madre, of our condo unit. This will hopefully help you get a feel for the views you're going to be enjoying.

Note that this condo includes both the 2nd and 3rd floors of the building, as outlined with the labeled box in the photo. A couple of features make this condo unit unique:

-The deck is huge, over the entire width of the condo (something like 30+ ft), and about 8-10 ft deep. It is a viewing paradise for water, birds, sunsets, etc. (including the best seat on the island for the city fireworks, every Friday night from Memorial Day to Labor Day, plus July 4th and New Year's Eve)

-The four windows you see on South West corner of the 2nd floor of the condo (3rd floor of the building) are all in the master bedroom. Nearly 180 degrees of water... a wonderful view to start each day of your vacation on South Padre Island!

- There is a bar area adjacent to the dining area, with a second small refrigerator and a large capacity ice maker.

- The master bathroom has a two person Jacuzzi tub (jetted tub), in addition to a separate shower stall.

Triple Summer Fun!!!

  • 5 of 5

The family REALLY enjoyed the stay at this condo. My wife and triplets enjoyed the view of the bay at sunset time and especially the fireworks show on Thursday and Friday night (best private seats on the bay). The summer breeze was nice and cool after dark. We took full advantage by staying in most of the time and just relaxed and enjoyed the view and passing boats. We cooked in to save on the few nights we went out to eat WELL. The kids enjoyed the Xbox that was in the second bedroom, it gave them time to enjoy their favorite game (Call of Duty). We will definitely book this condo again in the near future. Peter checked in on us to make sure we were comfortable and made us feel welcomed. This is a must stay for anyone looking to unwind and enjoy the bay view!!! EXCELLENT LOCATION!!

Beautiful and even better than the pictures

  • 5 of 5

This condo was just what we hoped it would be. The living room and kitchen area are more spacious than the pictures reflected. The view of Laguna Madre is quite stunning and we found ourselves taking most meals on the back porch overlooking the bay particularly at dinner. The two bedrooms accommodated my family and I quite well. Everything was very clean and the beds comfortable. The living area is also quite comfortable and has a nice entertainment system which we enjoyed. We utilized the boat slip that came with the condo which made it very handy to store our kayaks. I fished with my children each night on the dock and caught a lot of fish: speckled trout, catfish and lady fish. On our first evening we had an issue with the air conditioning but the property manager was very responsive and had someone out there to fix it. We would return to this property in a heartbeat for another vacation. I give this property a 5 out of 5 stars.

Amazing Balcony Views

  • 5 of 5

Spacious and beautiful Condo! Our first time on the bay side, loved being away from the crowds. Great location with amazing views from the Balcony. Everything we expected and more. Our kids (17,19 & 23) brought their Stand Up Paddle Boards and loved the easy access from the dock. Only minutes away from the beach! Hope to return next year!

Great family vacay

  • 5 of 5

This was our first family trip to Padre and it was so enjoyable. The condo was spotless upon our arrival and is equipped with pretty much any kitchen utensil/appliance you could ever need. It is very spacious and even with 3 kids in tow, we never felt cramped. The condo is also in such a great location, within walking distance of many shops and restaurants. We were able to walk down to the grocery store and made full use of kitchen and outdoor grill. The deck is truly one of the best, if not the best, place to view the fireworks on Thursday and Friday nights and is also a great place to enjoy morning coffee while watching boats take off for the day. My 4 year old also provided dance shows to the party boat as it cruised by each night lol. The owners were very responsive to questions before, during, and after our stay. There was a minor issue with the grill upon our arrival; all it took was a quick email to Peter and he sprung into action to assist us. There is beach gear stored in the condo for guest use, which is so helpful. My son enjoyed the condo so much he was concerned about what would happen to it after we left. In short, we just loved this place so much and can't wait to plan our next trip back!

Lovely older condos with potential to be more so

  • 4 of 5

The condo units were easy to find, located bayside with easy parking. Our corner condo had a good sized deck facing the bay, which made early morning coffee and sunset cocktails a perfect spot. The condo was well appointed with nice furniture, TV, and good sized open kitchen. The pool was a good size and clean though I will say it sorely needed new tables and chairs. Landscaping could have used some help, too. Our hosts provided tips for restaurants and grocery stores as well as chairs, cooler and umbrella with which to enjoy the beach. To sum it up, we were not ready to leave.
