A Whole Vacation for the Whole Family!!


Four bedroom home with private pool!

Located just across the street from the beach. The Gardenia Villa is a family favorite with 4 bedrooms, 2 kitchens, and a big private backyard pool with a bubbling hot Jacuzzi, spacious balconies and patios with lots of patio chairs and tables, outdoor shower, and barbeque grill..

This spacious 2500 sq. ft. beach home sleeps twelve.and has a patio with outdoor fans and lights within a private tropically landscaped back yard. Plenty of spacious decks and patio take full advantage of South Padre Island's mild winters and sizzling summers. Our colorful beach house offers a 47'" and 32" flat screen TV for a total of 5. (Free Cable and WiFi).

It is beautifully decorated and furnished to make sure it is the perfect South Padre Island home for you and your family. It is a perfect place for a great island vacation. Gardenia Villa reflects the personality and atmosphere of a tropical island.

Our beach house offers a completely contained upstairs as well as a completely contained downstairs. You have a kitchen, bedrooms and bathrooms on each floor. This conveniently provides for privacy when more than one family stays at Gardenia.

I am also very close to many local favorites. There is easy access to many locations because the Wave, a local free transportation is provided by the city. Near by, you can dine in style at the beachfront Palm’s Café, which offers mouth-watering grilled shrimp tacos and ambrosia desserts. Also, a block away is the family friendly casual eatery the Padre Island Brewing Co. with great service, home brewed beer, and some of the best ceviche on the Island. You can grab a quick brew and some great food. Tom & Jerry’s and Wanna Wanna’s beach bar, both famous for their sizzling burgers, are close by. Blackbeard’s, one of the first restaurants on the Island is a favorite. And, let's not forget Dirty Al's - best skewered shrimp ever and be sure to have the jalapeno/crabbed stuffed pepper.

Just up the road are many local attractions too. Further north you can attend daily events at the South Padre Island Convention Center or bring your binoculars and see what birds you can spot at the South Padre Island Birding and Nature Center. With over 300 migratory birds coming through the Rio Grande Valley, the birding center is one of the best places in the world to see and hear the sounds of amazing wildlife. The birding center has over 3300 feet of boardwalk to enjoy nature and even experience the collage of colors at sunset. Other features of the Birding Center include 5 bird blinds, an auditorium with a video about wildlife on South Padre Island, and five-story Birding Center tower with spectacular views of everything from the Laguna Madre to the Gulf of Mexico.

We also have the Turtle Rescue Center, horseback riding, kayaking, and even kite boarding nearby. Kite boarding is one of the fastest growing and most popular activities on South Padre Island. You can become an expert on the waves with the help of kite boarding schools like Air Padre Kiteboarding and SPI Kiteboarding. Don’t forget to enjoy a breathtaking Dolphin Boat ride with the crews at Sea Ranch Marina. You can get up close and personal to the playful dolphins in the splash of the Laguna Madre. Don’t miss out on these experiences!

"Fishing" - there is always fishing. Take advantage of Deep Sea or Bay fishing.

There are many discounts for most of the activities and more. Let me know and I will steer you in the best direction.

I have 3 properties on the Island. Two condos in 1 complex beachfront - each sleeps 6.

Just to repeat - check out the 3 properties. www.homeaway ID's 326150, 326146 and 396556. One of these should fit your calendar and guest needs.

Thanks for coming. Have a great day!!

We love this beach house!

  • 5 of 5

We have been going to South Padre every year since 2000 (and a few times before). We have stayed at this beach house a few times with our family of five and another family. It is always very clean, beautifully decorated and has everything we need. Tvs in every room; plenty of kitchen equipment; washer and dryer; clean towels, etc. It is just across the street from the beach access so we always go set up shop first thing in the morning and go back and forth the whole day! The beach is never overly crowded. We can bring our owns chairs down or rent from the beach vendor. And, of course, we all love the pool and spa. The kids get up and jump in first thing in the morning and keep themselves busy while we get everything ready for the beach. Every evening we are either on the upstairs or downstairs patios eating dinner and having fun. We will definitely keep coming back to the Gardenia house!
