Wonderful house and location

  • 4 of 5

We loved this house and location. The home is quite spacious and lovely. It was perfect for our family as we loved catching blue crab, fishing, swimming. and kayaking. We brought our kayaks. The fireworks display from Louie's on Thursday and Friday night was spectacular from our swimming pool and pier...beautiful over the water. It's a rental so not perfect: needs some maintenance: scuff marks along walls of staircase, many light bulbs out, poor quality of towels and wash cloths, no hand towels or kitchen towels and limited silverware with few spoons, and 1 paring knife and chef knife.However, I would rent it again. We had a wonderful vacation and loved the house and location.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback. We really appreciate it. There have been some minor damages due to the end of the season and the house being rented all summer long. We also have someone in charge of maintenance in case there are any inconveniences. We are really glad that you enjoyed your stay at South Padre and we hope you come back and visit us. Take care!

Time Theif

  • 5 of 5

The house and location are both so nice that you will forget to leave the place and venture out to the rest of the island. Next thing you know the week is up. The house is grand is size and the location is unbeatable. The dock and pool were a huge hit for the entire family. You will need to bring a grill. The grill at the house unusable. You can tell the house is a rental since the furniture and some of the fixtures are dated and "durable". That is absolutely not an issue. If the price is in your range, this is the house you are looking for. Move on this as quick as you can and you will have no regrets. Avi is a solid dude and will take care of you. Don't forget to explore the island before the week runs out on you!

Beauty of a house

  • 5 of 5

This house was more than what we intended for. There are lots of rooms, a large kitchen, and a beautiful infinity pool on the water.

The only problem we had was that the shutters were hard to pull up so it would have been better if we were informed or given instructions and how to lift them.

I loved the house and so did my husband and children.

Family beach vacation getaway

  • 5 of 5

We couldnt believe our eyes when we walked into the house. It is so much nicer than in the photos and the view of the ocean and the bridge is spectacular. It is very spacious for our family, including two young teenage boys who were able to enjoy their privacy throughout the week. The location of the house was great as it's on a quiet street on the bayside and just a few minutes walking distance from the beachside.

It is also close to many restaurants and bars. We didn't stay in too much because we preferred to enjoy the island and the beach however we came back everyday to swim in the pool at sunset and those are the fondest memories I have of our family trip.

I would reserve this house again for it's beauty and space.

Beautiful house with great features

  • 5 of 5

We came down to South Padre and stayed in this seaview house for a week and we loved it. We barbequed by the pool and had lots of space for 6 girls on vacation. I recommend this place because of the view, pool, the kitchen and the whole luxurious feel of being on vacation.

Defiantly disappointing!!!!

  • 2 of 5

We rented the house as a group of 8 and a 1 yr old. The only reason I am writing this review is to fore warn prospective renters to know the REAL deal with this house. We have used home away several times and had wonderful experience with our previous rentals. This house however was not represented well. I will just highlight the main areas of our disappointment. First of all When we arrived the manager Avi meet us at the house handed us a key and showed us where the laundry room was and showed us the towels. Then he told us he didn't answer his phone on sat. Or Sunday that was his family time then he left. We started looking around the house and after opening cabinets in the bathrooms there was only the 1 roll of toilet paper on the roller and nothing else. There was NOTHING else in the bathrooms. No hand soap which we don't travel with. We all brought our own toletries but thought they would have extra toilet paper and hand soap. The kitchen was the same. Nothing no paper towels no dishwasher soap and the pots and pans were disgusting. There were plenty of plates but 6 coffee mugs and 6 drinking glasses. We were planing to cook meals there but quickly realized we were going to have to make a list and drive back in to town to Walmart. There were only 4 grungy wash clothes but there were plenty of towels. We had to go buy a few cheap skillets and a few sauce pans as their pans were totally gross. So we went shopping for toilet paper paper towels and more things. We brought our own barbecue grill thank goodness because theirs was rusted out and broken. We also called Avi to tell him the pool pump was not working and he said yes he knew that and he would look into it. Of course we never heard back from him. By Saturday the pool turned green and was not useable. My point to anyone who is coming to this house is come with all your own basic stuff like toilet paper etc. we bought new wash clothes but took then home with us. I will say that this house floor plan was great for us. We just figured the house is for sale and the owners are either over it or have rented to too many spring breakers and they trashed the place or they have run out of funds to properly maintain this home for renters paying the amount they are charging. We will NOt recommend this house to any one we know. When we read the reviews it was clear that when someone did leave a realistic review the owners defended their property and DID NOT disclose this is a BARE BONES RENTAL!

Owner's Response: Hi Jenny, Thanks for your feedback and we apologize if you had an unpleasant stay. However there are several factors that could have probably made your accommodation more comfortable. First of all, as there is toilet paper, soaps and a fully equipped kitchen in the house prior to renting, that does not mean that it will supply you and everyone you bring throughout your entire stay. Twelve cups can be more than plenty for some of our guests and if you run out of toilet paper, then that is just something that happens naturally according to the guests. These are all very subjective elements as to why you didn't enjoy your time there. As for maintenance, we always cater to our guests needs and if there is a problem, we do come and fix it. The manager does not answer his phone for religious purposes not to have the weekend off. That is why we have a maintenance company that we hired. And lastly, the house was rented immediately after your stay and those guests have already booked another reservation for the next time they come to South Padre. So it seems that everything was in order and the toiletries were sufficient enough for the next guests. But regardless, thanks for your honesty.
