About Peter & Robin
This condo has been our exclusive home away from home for the last dozen years, and we started 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 South Padre Island
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! - The master bathroom has a two person Jacuzzi tub (jetted tub), in addition to a separate shower stall.

Great property for family getaway!
Spectacular view of bay from large patio. Great spot to watch the sunsets! Peaceful property with plenty of space for the family to spread out on two levels. Great amenities, well appointed and clean! Close to shopping and restaurants and easy access to beach. Great hosts made checking in and out a breeze. Would gladly reserve again.
Perfect place for our family getaway
I was torn originally in choosing a place on the marina side over the ocean, but the pics were too inviting, and the place lived up to it and more. This was a gorgeous, roomy, comfy condo that fit our family perfectly. The views were beautiful from every room, and the huge deck felt right on top of the emerald green bay. And you couldn't buy a better spot to watch the fireworks show from. The dock was a great perk, and my boys and I caught several fish. It's just a block or two easy stroll to restaurants, bars, live music, kayak rentals, you name it. And the beach was walk-able or a 2-3 minute car ride, and we didn't have any trouble finding a parking spot. They even had all the beach necessities stocked for use, such as beach chairs, umbrellas, toys, skim boards, and we left 2 body boards for the next visitors to enjoy. The only full grocery store on the island was just a couple of blocks away, which was very convenient. The owner and local housekeeper were very pleasant and easy to communicate with. We enjoyed our stay immensely and I would definitely recommend this condo for a couple, up to a family of 5 as we were.
Beautiful, relaxing, and great location
Very open and spacious condo facing the bay with Gorgeous view of the sunset. The condo was filled with amenities and extra towels, beach chairs. We were very comfortable here. It exceeded our expectations plus more. LOVED IT! We will be back.
Excellent location! Excellent View!
We love this condo! Very clean, spacious, location, the people just everything. This is our summer vacay destination for many years to come!
The condo is perfect. We spent most of our time out on the LARGE balcony enjoying watching the water. The view of the fireworks and the sunsets from the balcony were just amazing. Everything was clean, beds were comfortable. The check- in process was super easy as well as the check-out process. The closet full of beach chairs, umbrellas and beach toys was very handy. They even have some coolers to use. Lots of restaurants and shops were within walking distance. We had one minor problem which was our fault and the owner was super nice and easy to deal with regarding it. The beach is within walking distance, but we drove. Carrying all the chairs, umbrellas, and coolers would have made it an unpleasant walk. We can't wait to come back!
Close to all
Very nice condo everything you need is inside.
Close to all nightlife entertainment and restaurants, we practically walked to everything the whole time there. Great place for the fireworks. Definitely would stay here again .
