Quiet North Padre Island waterfront condo, close to the beach and Schlitterbahn
Condo, 1 Bedrooms + Convertible Bed (s), 1 Bath (Sleeps 2-4)
This property is located in the heart of North Padre Island adjacent to the beautiful and challenging Island Golf Course. If there is a golfer in your group, be prepared to sidestep the abundance of wildlife from hares to Herons. The North Padre Island Country Club is actually at you back door.
There are no pets allowed here or at the "sister" property to this condo (see VRBO / Homeaway # 696517) which is just as nice...only 10 doors down. There is a boat slip shared between the two units.
This condo has recently been completely renovated to give you an 'island experience'.
New appliances include full size Maytag stackable washer and dryer, microwave and dishwasher for you convenience ensuring a wonderful vacation time. A new 18 cubic foot refrigerator and new GE stove round out the kitchen appliances. There are also new cabinets and granite counter tops in the kitchen.
This (1) bedroom / 1 full Bath (re-modeled) spacious condo also has a pull-out sofa bed (new) to allow for comfortable sleeping for up to (4) adults.
The Master bedroom (re-modeled) has a full King size bed with new Simmons mattresses.
This North Padre Island condo has a new 42'W flat screen TV, new ceiling fans and a great view patio.
When the weather is warm enough, there is a wonderful complex tropical pool and hot tub for everyone to enjoy. All children under (14) need to be accompanied by adults per the complex management. There is general parking available. The carport next to the entrance belongs to the upper floor units - they needed to have something to make up for not being on the first floor :)
While your visiting, there are many activities to take advantage of. Guided fishing tours in the pristine Laguna Bay system and for those with a real adventure hunger, you can travel back into Baffin Bay. This is probably the most natural and isolated bay anywhere along the southern Gulf Coast!
The (15) miles of white sand beaches that separate North Padre Island from Port Aransas offer many areas for family's and tourists to walk along and search for many unusual shells to the more common and plentiful sand dollars.
Miles and miles of clean beach awaits you and your group!
For a change of pace, a quick trip to Port Aransas offers many shops and restaurants for those looking for coastal souvenirs and gourmet food. You can even rent your own golf cart and scoot around the beach or shops!
Back on North Padre Island you'll have your own local restaurants with sports bars, bistros and sushi.
Horseback riding is available on the beach with horses for beginners to those with more skill and experience. It has a beautiful canal view and is walking distance to golf clubhouse for a round on the links and a stones throw to the beach! Beautifully furnished and easy access to all activities on the Island from restaurants to horseback riding on the beach! This wonderful condo is very quiet and only three blocks from the beach.
The seashore road to Port Aransas (15 minute drive) is a block away and Corpus's wonderful malls back OTB (over-the-bridge) also 15 minutes away!
North Padre Island offers probably the nicest and cleanest beaches on the Texas Coast. Pristine and secluded Big Shell is just minutes down the coast for some of the best surf fishing anywhere!
This truly is an area along the coast that time seems to have forgotten....... but not for long.
Schlitterbahn is coming and in a big way. To be precise, this condo will be centrally located between the golf course and the future Schlitterbahn park.
So, bring your margarita making skills and kick back after a long, fun filled day. Kick your feet up, watch the sunset between the palm trees and relax.
After the sun has rested, look upward...........the south Texas stars are a thing to behold.
If we say so ourselves, Jimmy Buffet would be asking for more gumbo or another cheeseburger......at this North Padre Island Paradise.
Footnote: we truly hope you can leave work behind but alas yes...we do have Wifi

I Grew up in Michigan but moved to Houston Texas. I split my time working there and coming to North Padre Island living a great life. I'll retire someday on North Padre Island, watching my son grow up, toasting to every sunny day and fishing with friends.
Owner purchased this Condo in 2012
Why Owner chose Corpus Christi
I bought this particular property and have decided to rent it out because of the ideal location and being on the first floor. Great for fishermen and vacationers.
What makes this Condo unique
It is in a prime location to get to anywhere on North Padre Island quickly or for the fisherman that want quick access by boat to Laguna Madre or the Gulf.

Super serene and very updated
We loved our stay at this gem, our only regret is that we did not have a boat for the boat slip outside our backyard! Very thoughtful updates to this property, comfortable bed, great kitchen and dining area, great location. You will not be disappointed. It is a short drive to the beach, but it is also a short drive to all the other great things in the area. If you want to go to Schlitterbahn, it is walking distance. Thanks for the great memories!
Hello and thank you so very much...I know my place is not perfect and if all property owners would be honest, they would have to say the same. There is always something that could be added or changed to make our condo's better. Sorry I could not provide you that boat. It's nice to have folks that have a glass is half full attitude and not go out of their way looking for negative things like a closet light bulb was burnt out so I could not give you a five star rating.
I have tried hard to make folks feel as much as possible that they are welcome and in a "like home" environment. I do thank you you though for the kind and unsolicited write up and truly hope you have lasting memories from your trip. You are welcome back.......anytime!
Disappointed by outside appearance and inside conditions
Very conveniently located. Easy to fish in channel and close to ocean. Outside of complex certainly needs lots of work. Although they are slowly working on it.Pool area definitely needs updating. My condo had nice kitchen and bed. Otherwise it needs painting and improvements.Could have been cleaner
Loved being on the water... pretty!
The condo is exactly as described and pictured. It was clean. Owner friendly when I contacted him with a question.
We spent very little time here... basically just to sleep n shower. It was exactly what we wanted.
Could have been cleaner and maintained better.
The condo was not dusted and all the light bulbs in living rm and bath were out. The throw rugs and coverlet on bed were dirty. Not enough linens. One washcloth and 4 towels. The condo it self was good except for excessive noise upstairs. The deadbolt could not be locked with keys provided.
The handicap parking was blocked by building materials.
We had a good time except for those problems
Thanks for the review.......although I do want to comment on some of this. Yes, I found that the deadbolt was not working from the following folks. They contacted me and we found that one of the keys teeth had worn down to were it wasn't working properly....fixed in 10 minutes. We just went through a major hurricane....there are building materials all over the Island for minor repairs....you should see Port A! Four towels are standard for (2) people staying. It is a condo with high end washer and dryer not a hotel unit with daily maid service. Upon request, additional linens are provided happily. All of the light bulbs in the living room worked when I checked it out...you were using the wrong switch I believe and yes, I replaced 2 of 3 bulbs in the bath were replaced. The maids have been lectured on the rugs, dust etc. I believe they had a bad day...all my other reviews reflected a very clean condo unit. Thanks again.....
Everything was 100% what I expected. It was homie and comfortable. I will return
Good location,walking distance to Slitherbalm. People that live in complex very nice. Other guess upstairs had to many kids running around late hours.Not any fault of owner we rented from.He was very nice offered us great fishing tips.We brought our boat, good access to intercoastal.complex felt safe at night and bed was comfortable.
An awful lot of folks that come to visit the Island are avid golfers and bring their 'sticks' with them. The North Padre Island Golf Country Club is not in the condo's direct view. From the front door though it is no more than a mere 275 yard drive away!
