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 condo 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 condo 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.

Great Stay!

  • 4 of 5

Easy in and easy out. Place had everything we needed and was a well located -- even got lucky enough to be here on one of the few days that the farmers market was right up the street. Enjoyed the patio and boat dock but would have been nice to have a patio umbrella and a grill but I guess there is some liability involved with a grill on the wooden deck -- still, could have used one on the front porch though. The place had a few things that needed some minor repairs (the only big thing was the lines in the TV) but nothing that hindered our good time and that would not make we want to come back. Overall, we had a amazing time at this place and would recommend it with confidence to family and friends. If we come back to this area we will definitely be staying here again. I doubt you will find more hospitable people than the owners of this property -- great folks that kept in touch with us and took care of us. Enjoy -- we did!

Great place to relax and fish right off the deck

  • 5 of 5

This a very nice quiet getaway condo. Great for fishing right off the pier or bringing the boat with a tie up right at the back steps. Condo was super clean with all the amenities of being at home. All cookware, linens, towels and even coffee cream and sugar. Internet wi-fi worked well. Tv in every room. Located in a very nice neighborhood and very close to the boat launch. great place to stay at a great price. hope to go back again.

Relaxing Stay

  • 4 of 5

Overall, this place is good for small groups. The kitchen can get crowded with more than one person cooking. Both bedrooms are upstairs. It's pretty private and very relaxing. Good location and fully stocked. The owners were available for any issues. We would return.

Clean, convenient, everything we needed in one place.

  • 5 of 5

Slipped the boat right outside the deck, made it super easy to blast in the morning and cast in the afternoon. Everything we needed to cook our catch was in the kitchen so we packed all those pots and pans and utensils for nothing. Very clean, very comfortable place, and everyone we came in contact with was friendly and helpful. A definite do-again.
