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.
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
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.
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.
This is the second time I have stayed at the condo and it was even better than the first time. The kitchen has been touched up and there is plenty of room to cook and mingle with friends. I went this time to fish with two buddies and boy did we hook into the sea trout! I had two days of limits and my two friends limited out on Sunday. I kept my boat 50 feet from the condo in the boat dock and we were off fishing every morning at 6:30am. We spent the mid-day in the house cooling off and we went back to fishing around 3:30 until darkness. What a fantastic memory for me and my friends! Will be back in the Spring to catch the big trout!
We had a wonderful time staying here. The views were great and the sunsets were amazing. The condo was very neat and clean and the pool was nice. We especially loved the deck outside. We can't wait to come back!
We had such a restful and peaceful Labor Day Weekend at Peter and Robin's spacious condominium. We definitely had a spectacular view of the sunset and firework display! Comfortable and clean with a nice pool and beach access within walking distance. Hope to rent again soon!
We had a great time staying here. The views from every room were amazing. The property was very clean and a lovely home. The beds were very comfortable. Waking up to the view in the master bedroom was paradise. The pool was fun and just the right size for our small children. We like to cook and found the kitchen to be exceptionally well stocked with lovely dishes, stemware and quality cutlery and cooking gear. It had everything we needed - even things we didn't think we needed -- but appreciated having. (cast iron skillet, skewers for kabobs, etc). The property is very convenient to the grocery store (could actually walk there). We had planned to do some other activities on our last day but ended up not feeling the need to go anywhere -- relaxing on the deck, enjoying the water views, and spending time with family was perfect. Can't think of a reason anyone would not enjoy staying here. 5 stars! A very High quality property.
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!!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The condo was very clean, had great accommodations and nicely decorated. I highly recommend and will be back again someday. Thank you for everything!
