About the property

Jaw Dropping Bay Retreat Condo

Luxurious but comfortable 2Bed/2 Bath condo with beautiful bay views and a boat slip. It's a one of a kind property tucked in the charming and tranquil Port Isabel, TX. Just one street before the South Padre Island Causeway crossing. You can avoid traffic jams on the bridge by just looking out from the condo. Our unit offers views to the bay on both sides. Therefore making it possible to watch the summer time fireworks on one side and on the other side you will have an amazing view of the bay, pool and hot tub. In the very near future we will have an amazing view of Space X. This condo redefines relaxation, serenity and luxury. It's away from it all, yet it offer the best of both worlds. The bay and Ocean. You can take a short drive to the ocean and return just before hectic traffic starts at the island during peak seasons. This condo was completely remodeled.

The Spacious Living room features a romantic electric fireplace, a leather sectional and an amazing smart, UltraHD65 inch curved tv. WiFi and direct TV. The Kitchen is on open concept with beautiful white cabinets, stainless steel appliances, a quartz countertop island that accommodates 3. A small bar and coffee area. Kitchen is fully stocked with all your cooking and baking needs. The dining room features a beautiful granite dinning table that accommodates 6 people. The condo was beautifully decorated with sea/coral colors and features beautiful fun art done by a local artist from Port Isabel, Tx. The balcony has a marvelous view of the bay and pool area. It includes a gas grill so you can cook your favorite meal or the fresh fish you catch. You will enjoy your coffee or favorite drink from the balcony while you may see your family swimming in the pool.

The Master bedroom has a king size bed with tempurpedic mattress. You will rest so well that you will just want to stay in for an extra hour. The master shower is inviting and very roomy. The washer and dryer is also in the master bedroom. The second bedroom is also very comfortable and lovely. It offers a queen bedroom and a TV. The second shower is decorated with vibrant nautical colors. This attractive condo has everything you need! If you are familiar with the area, these condos are on the opposite side of Long Island Village which is only walking distance.

This unit is a 2 bedroom/2 bath and accommodates 4 people for the price offered. However if you are needing extra space for another couple of more family, I have a separate captains quarters downstairs that sleeps 4 more people. This would be a separate charge and depends on availability. It has four amazing comfortable bunk beds, shower, TV and kitchen fully stocked. Its beautiful!

We don't hire management companies to get your accommodations ready therefore we personally clean or supervise the cleaning as its being performed simply because we want to deliver exceptional customer service. We have high standards when it comes to our own accommodations and we apply the same standards when it comes to you. When you stay with us you will be sleeping in thoroughly washed and sanitized bedding, mattress covers, towels, rugs, refrigerators, remotes, light switches and door handles between clients. We don't cut corners when it comes to your health. Im not sure about other places but as for our unit you will be pleased. In time items will show normal scuffs and discolorations but they have been washed completely to give you the peace of mind. "That is priceless."

We are not low budget accommodations but promise to offer you the best accommodations that you deserve. Our dedication and customer service sets us apart when it comes to our investment, "you!"

Why Blanca Garza chose Port Isabel

This is a hidden gem at the bay where it has easy access for fishing and great views. Its secluded, private and very relaxing.

What makes this condo unique

The location of the condo is perfect. You are in town but yet private enough to feel in your own retreat location. The views are beautiful and it has the easiest access to the bay. Great fishing in this area and just minutes to the causeway to South Padre Island. Its a well kept property and very quiet. Pool and Hot tub are just below us and they are always kept so clean.

Clean, bright, roomy, comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

We have been using VRBO for years now, and this was probably our best rental. Blanca is so easy to work with and responded quickly to questions. It was just the two of us but there is plenty of room for four people. Very clean condo, plenty of towels, all the kitchen appliances you need, extremely comfortable beds and furniture. The island is only 5 minutes away, and the beaches there are beautiful. We will most certainly be back.

Excellent experience in Port Isabel

  • 5 of 5

As we walked in, our first impression was one of warmth and hospitality. The decoration reminded us that we were at view distance from the marina and the Gulf. The property is impeccable, spacious and very well kept, and Blanca surely made it a point that her guests would feel at home and made sure that all of our needs were fulfilled beforehand. This is our second experience dealing with Blanca and not the last we hope.

The condo is in a smaller complex that is gated. The grounds were well kept. The condo was recently remodeled and was very beautiful and comfortable. Owner is great to work with and very quick response to any questions. I would recommend this to everyone looking for a quiet place to enjoy the bay, nice restaurants and a short drive accross the bridge to So. Padre Island. The view of the island from is condo is nice.

I am blessed to own a beautiful condo in the city of Port Isabel. We have the best of both worlds. The quietness of the city of Port Isabel is away from it all when you just need to rest and the accessibility of the Island just minutes away. You can always see the traffic of the bridge crossing to the Island before you leave. We always wanted to have an easier get away in case of emergency on the Island.

On the Island you would love our clean beach, warm weather, great seafood, live music and fun activities. These are our all time favorite restaurant that you must try: In Port Isabel you will enjoy eating at Joe's Oyster Bar, the seafood is fresh and prices are very reasonable compared to other seafood restaurants on the Island. Manuel's is a quaint restaurant also with great breakfast, lunches and very affordable.. You need a big appetite for this place, with one plate you can feed an army. Breakfast tacos are huge!!! also in Port Isabel you can dine at the Pelican Restaurant. The mango margaritas are delicious and Arturo is our favorite bar tender. We never get a table here we just go straight to the bar and order food and drinks there.

At the Island: If you want to splurge on food there is Louie's Back Yard, they have all you can eat buffet that offers so much and it includes prime rib and crab legs, "so delicious." You can do a little You can stay to watch the most amazing sunsets and enjoy the two dollar margaritas and live music most of the time. The sunsets are amazing here in South Texas and you can watch them from Louie's or Billy Bob's next door. Yummies is a great breakfast restaurant with delicious mimosas, awesome flavor coffee's and breakfast is great. A little on the expensive side but well worth it. The meatball cafe on the Island is one of our favorite Italian restaurant but for great pizza we go to D's Pizza, "yummy" If you are looking to watch the waves and listen to Karaoke visit the Boomerang Billy's by the ocean, older crowd and great happy hour. Also, there is Clayton's Beach Bar, the largest in Texas they say; mixed crowd but also on the ocean and free live concerts sometimes.

For couples who want to dance the night away indoors, there is the Quarter Deck at the Isla Grand Hotel. This place is fun and I love the live bands they bring, Its always fun there.

Fishing is my favorite, although we fish mostly on the bay there are some deep sea fishing tours that are well worth it like the Osprey Cruises. You can also enjoy the fishing and dolphin watching during the deep sea tour.

Pier 19 is also a great restaurant. So many things to mention but these are our most frequented places.
