About Samanda and Colin

Colin and Samanda both grew up near the Texas Gulf Coast and love the area. They reside in the Hill Country. They love to fish, go to the beach, get away from it all and relax. They have always dreamed of having a vacation home on the coast and have family near the area, which is why they decided to buy a townhome on Padre Island.

Samanda and Colin purchased this townhome in 2010

Why Samanda and Colin chose Texas Gulf Coast

Our family loves to fish so purchasing a townhome on the water with a boat dock was very important. We also love the proximity to the beach just a few blocks away, the park down the street, and the peacefulness of sitting on the deck and enjoying the beautiful views of the water.

What makes this townhome unique

There are so many benefits of being located on a waterfront canal vs being just close to the beach. You can enjoy kayaking, paddle boarding, boating, swimming, fishing off the dock during the day or at night with the underwater lights and even watching the boats pass by. Let's face it, it's nice to be in walking distance to the beach, but you're still going to drive and park so you can bring all your things. Our location is only a few blocks away from the beach and yet has so many more entertainment options.

Extremely comfortable and relaxing.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying here. It's in a perfect location and the canal is really wide and peaceful. Almost everything we needed was provided, with the exception of an available BBQ pit which would have been nice, but other than that it was perfect and we would definitely stay again.

Nice home!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay, Beautiful home and views. The only thing I would have liked to have a better understanding was you needed the hide a bed in order for everyone to have a bed. But other than that, we would definitely consider renting it again.

Our stay here was wonderful.

  • 5 of 5

Everything was as advertised with no unpleasant surprises. The kitchen is well equipped and perfect sized. The water pressure is quite good, which anyone will appreciate who has ever been stuck with a place where it is just not adequate. Seems like a small issue, but important to me.

The boat dock out back is great for boating or fishing. Schools of speckled trout can be seen all night, starting around 9 PM. They ignored my fake bait, but am told by the neighbor that they will attack live shrimp with gusto. So bring a bait bucket and/or an aerator pump.

The boat ramp is about 3 or 4 houses down, couldn't be more convenient. The upper deck of the dock has some nice, sturdy outdoor furniture and a wonderful view of the marina and attractive beach homes, as well as a beautiful evening time vista. It is peaceful and lovely at night. The green glow of the underwater lights is like a sort of mariner's campfire. Nice to just sit around, relax, and watch the ripples and fish cross the lights.

It is a very short drive to the beach. You will not be walking it. There are drive-on beaches and no-car beaches. The Packery Channel jetties are right there and accessible in any type of vehicle. We were in a minivan and had an infant with us. No problems and no worries. A parking permit is not required there. The beaches have life guard stations. The jetties have handrails and great fishing. Plus, the family can play and swim right there, too. Bob Hall Pier is very close and a hugely popular fishing venue.

Showers, sinks, toilets, beds, carpet, closets all clean and fresh. No lingering or questionable odors or stains. Air conditioner is fine, fridge is fine, ice maker works well.

The garage is off-limits and most certainly used for owner's storage. We had a small trailer, so it was not an issue.

All in all it was a very fine stay for us. We felt we got our money's worth and would gladly stay again.
