Best 4th of July ever!

  • 4 of 5

Absolutely beautiful view of ocean. Very quite well kept property. Condo management very polite and helpful. Condo security always on duty and enforcing property rules. This was helpful especially with parking. The inside of condo was perfect for couple or small family with a one bedroom king and a sofa bed. There was plenty of space for my wife and our two kids, however most of our time was spent on the beach or sitting on balcony watching the beach. You simply cannot find a better location for this price. The owner made this rental experience a seamless process. We will be booking again.

Great Couple's Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This condo was just perfect for my husband and me! We needed a getaway where we could slow down and relax and South Padre was the perfect place. The beach was beautiful (best I've been to without getting on a plane), the condo was cozy and location phenomenal. It was steps from the beach and on the north end of the island so it was much quieter and less crowded than the south end. We decided that this will be a great annual trip for us and look forward to staying at the condo again!

Great stay with even greater ocean views!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week-long stay at Wake To The Waves. The reservation was easy - before arrival, the owner was very good at promptly replying to our questions and providing information regarding check-in and the South Padre area. Our arrival and check-in was smooth. The condo was literally steps from the beach with great views and easy access to the beach. One morning we actually opened the curtains and watched the sunrise from the King bed. The balcony was nice and big with sliding doors both from the living room and bedroom - it felt like you were on the beach without needing to worry about the wind or sunburn. We were also able to watch the fireworks from the balcony on Friday night. The unit was in good condition - very clean, well maintained, new bath towels and kitchen towels, new baking sheets, and well stocked with plates, utensils, cookware, even a coffee bean grinder and crockpot. It was also nice to have a TV both in the living room and in the bedroom. We were pleasantly surprised to find boogie boards, beach chairs, a beach umbrella, and sand castle toys for our use. We were thankful that it was pet friendly - we were able to bring our dog - and there were green areas on the property as well as waste bags and disposal cans. The property was well maintained, the pool was warm and inviting, and the other guests were families - no loud obnoxious partying. We had a great time and would highly recommend this property! In regards to activities: Sea Turtle, Inc. (sea turtle rescue/rehabilitation center within walking distance, small price for admission), Whaling Wall (artist mural of killer whales located at the Convention Center), Pier 19 (great sunset views near Port Isabel), Clayton's Beach Bar & Grill (next door and convenient). We also felt safe running and biking on Padre Boulevard - there is a sidewalk or dedicated bike lane. Tip: Stock up on groceries/supplies and gas at the HEB or Super Walmart in Port Isabel - prices are MUCH cheaper than on the island.

Perfect View!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect spot for our Mother's Day getaway! We wanted an ocean view and we got just that! No the place wasn't the newest but it had great charm! Renovations had been made and it was just ideal for us. Only question we had was really about some of the checkout requirements (e.g. removing all of the bed sheets ourselves) and this was only because we knew there was a cleaning service so it seemed unnecessary if they would be coming in after. Still that was minor for us and we really enjoyed the stay.

One of the days we were there the winds really picked up and with a 4 month old baby it just didn't seem ideal for us to be on the beach. We opted to stay in the room and hang out on the balcony. The room is so perfectly situated that it didn't matter at all! In fact, we loved it! It's conveniently located near Clayton's but really you are a short drive to so many restaurants and stores. Looking forward to staying here again!

Great trip

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. The view was amazing. Great easy beach access with everything we needed in the condo. The beach was a bit more of a party than our young family wanted on Saturday and Sunday afternoon and evening but with the sound proof glass of the condo, once in side you didn't hear a thing. We enjoyed eating dinner and hanging out on the patio. Great beach vacation!

Owner's Response: I'm so pleased that you had a great vacation. It is prime season on the island so the weekends can get a little hectic; however, I'm glad you got to enjoy rest and relaxation in the condo. I hope you will be guests again in the near future. The fall is a lovely time and much less crowded!

Great Location - Not so great property

  • 2 of 5

The condo is in a great location. The owner was responsive and the property front desk super polite. When we arrived, we noticed the condo was not well cleaned, was missing extra sheets for the futon bed (which was damaged), dirty dishes were in the cupboards, we had to bleach the dehumidifier to help remedy a strange smell, nearly all of the lightbulbs in the main room were burnt out, there was mold on the pillows stored in a closet for use on the futon bed. No bath soap was provided which is an unpleasant surprise when you arrive late and want to shower before bed. The four towels provided didn't seem clean but they didn't smell bad either. In retrospect, I would have washed them before using. When asking for soap, lightbulbs, sheets, etc., from the front desk we were always told very politely it is an owner managed property and there isn't anything they can do for us. WIFI was down in our unit for all but our last day there. The condo is fine on the surface but lacks attention to detail. The price is right -- but you definitely get what you pay for. I would recommend it to people traveling without kids and/or who aren't caught up in details.

Owner's Response: I’m so sorry that your vacation wasn’t all that it should have been. I was never informed that anything was wrong with the futon until 2 guests after you and I immediately had a new queen sleeper sofa delivered the next day. The phone number to my cleaning/maintenance crew is on the welcome letter so that if items are missing or the condo isn’t cleaned as appropriate, guests can call. My instructions regarding the dehumidifier indicate to empty and turn off but unfortunately not everyone follows these. I had a new dining room ceiling fan put in and the lights fixed in the kitchen the minute it was reported. I hope you will consider staying at Wake to the Waves again and give it a chance to redeem itself.
