A Joyful Seaside Christmas!

  • 5 of 5

This was an exceptional condo! Having recently been remodeled, it was beautifully decorated in a seaside theme that gave the condo a calm, tranquil feeling. We loved the light colored floor tile! Plus, we had an amazing view of the beach and ocean so even if we stayed inside we felt we were a part of it! The kitchen was well supplied and we were able to turn out batch after batch of Christmas cookies with no problems. There were plenty of cup towels, plates, bowls, kitchen utensils and etc. We lacked for nothing. My husband and I plus our two daughters and their spouses spent seven days in this condo and it was truly a joyous Christmas! We had a Christmas tree surrounded by presents but, even then, there was enough space so that at no time did we feel like we were walking over one another. The master bedroom was spacious and the other two bedrooms were more than adequate. Both were large with their own TVs. The bathrooms came with plenty of towels and washcloths. A bonus, if you have young children, is the outside closet which is supplied with beach chairs and toys. While this is a third floor condo, this did not matter to us as access to the beach was still easy. Plus, the view from this condo was far superior to those we have had in the past. We would definitely stay here again!

Perfect vacation accommodations for our family!

  • 5 of 5

We felt totally at home in this beautiful, clean, 3 bedroom condo! Had everything we needed to make our stay on South Padre nice and relaxing. Great view of beach, well stocked kitchen, and even games to play. Loved the new floors! Much better for beach condos versus carpet.

We had a little issue with internet and the Owner was quick to respond and had our teenage son connected in no time. Only issue we had was facet in master bathroom was not working and had to turn off hot water to keep from running constantly.

We would definitely come back!! Our 11 year old daughter didn't want to leave.

My family and I booked a three night stay for spring break and Terry's listing was PERFECTION!! My husband, our three boys, (4, 11 & 16) two of my oldest son's best friend's and I loved Terry's place from the moment we walking in the door. The breath taking view of the beach was amazing. The large floor to ceiling windows made the view 10 times better. Waking up from in the master bedroom to the beautiful beach was just what I was looking forward to. There was everything we needed to have a comfortable and enjoyable time. There where was a library of movies. There were toys for my 4 year old. Everything you need in the kitchen. there were fans and even an ice chest so you can have what you need while sitting on the beach. I would definitely recommend this listing to anyone and my family and I will be coming back.

Very beautiful and recently remodeled condo in a perfect location with great views of the Gulf!

  • 4 of 5

My only few little gripes was that the wifi provided access codes did not work and there was no instructions for use of the Mr. Coffee, coffee maker. The Keurig coffee maker had mold inside of it so we couldn't use it either. Also, the master bathroom sink faucet has a steady leak. Other than that it was a wonderful condo and we had a great time.

Owner's Response: I am glad you enjoyed the views and all the hardwork on the recent remodel. I have had the keurig investigated and I apologize it looked like mold but I was told it is from the green tea our housekeeper drinks. Thank you for staying!

One of the best condos we have stayed at by far! Some necessities were there, so we were happy to donate some water toys as well!

Amazing condo

  • 5 of 5

The condo was exactly as described. We absolutely loved everything about it. It was clean, quiet, and comfortable. It had everything we needed during our stay. The sunrise view from the balcony was breathtaking. We were so close to the beach that I could watch my teenage daughters play on the beach without having to go out with them. The beach was not crowded at all. We had another set of condos on one side of us and nothing on the other. We saw staff cleaning the pool area every morning and never saw any trash anywhere on the grounds. The complex was well maintained and clean. I was afraid that we would hear noise from the water park but the noise was gone once we drove past the park. Don't forget to ask for discount tickets for Schlitterbahn! It saved us almost $30 a ticket. We loved the condo so much we really didn't want to leave. We hope we get to stay again next year. Thank you Terry and Patricia for answering all my questions and for allowing us to stay in your beautiful condo!!
