Overview

South Padre Island Condo Rental Photos and Description

This beautifully decorated, ground floor 3BR/2BA unit is a rare find.

Just 22 steps to the beach, this newly-decorated condominium is, for the first time, being offered to the rental market by its private owner. You'll find all the amenities including ample space for 8 guests featuring a living/dining area, fully appointed kitchen with walk-in pantry, master bedroom and bath at beach level and two quiet bedrooms sharing a full travertine bath. The master bedroom and living areas feature a walk-out porch with Adirondack chairs for some beach side relaxation. This unit is particularly unique because of its ground floor proximity to the board walk leading to the beach and its floor-to-ceiling windows which present you a constant and magnificent view of the dunes and beach shore line. At sunrise you’ll surely enjoy dune flowers as they emerge with each sunrise. The unit is fully digital with wireless internet and 3 internet enabled digital entertainment centers. A laundry room has a large load washer/dryer and beach toys are available in the owner's storage unit. Fabulous beds and linens will ensure you enjoy the most restful sleep possible. A quiet and beautiful pool and tennis courts are available for you use -- just steps away from your unit. Sea Vista is the southern most property on the island next to a protected marine preserve yet close to the best restaurants on the southern harbor. Fishing, dolphin and bird watching is within walking distance. There is a maximum occupancy of 8 persons with 2 automobiles allowed. SPI Permit 2015-448643

About Ed and Betty DeShields

Ed and Betty DeShields and their daughter Bess have been visiting South Padre Island for many years. We live in Dallas, Texas but love the island for all the memories it has made in our family.

Ed and Betty DeShields purchased this condo in 2013

Why Ed and Betty DeShields chose Texas Gulf Coast

We've stayed in many properties throughout the years but Sea Vista is simply one of the finest properties on the island. Sea Vista is mostly owned by private owners so your stay is usually quiet and free from the masses that do not crowd our private beach. Management is attentive to your every need and all you have to do is ask if you need something.

What makes this condo unique

22 steps to the beach and directly on the ground floor. No elevators, corridors or lengthy walks will keep you from the beach. You will literally walk onto your lawn and patio directly from the beach. Gorgeously decorated and fully appointed with a full kitchen and bedding that ensure you will have a restful stay. Sea Vista is closest to the action, yet super-quiet without the crowds. Schlitterbaun water park is within walking distance as is two private tennis courts and pools. Maximum occupancy 8 persons, 2 automobiles.

Beauty and the Beach

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this perfectly located condo for our family vacation. There were six adults and two 2-year olds. I can't say enough about how wonderful it was to walk out the door and take just a few steps to the beach. Beautiful sunrises and gorgeous views of the beach! Plus, being on the ground floor gave us access to a nice saint augustine lawn and actually made our patio seem larger. The condo was clean, well appointed and perfectly furnished for our family. The owners were very quick to answer all questions and the personnel at Sea Vista were welcoming and helpful. We hope to come back next year!

A truly beautiful property

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at this property could not have been better. The owners were very easy to work with. The condo is beautiful, you can tell it is someone's home and not just a rental. Anything you could possible need was there from beach toys to high-end linens. Being able to open the glass door and be steps from the beach was wonderful. The view was incredible. Check in was a breeze, as was check out. We look forward to returning next year.

Owner's Response: Thanks for staying with us. Unfortunately that less than one year old washer got killed by beach sand. We replaced it the moment we learned it was broken. Come see us again soon.

Favorite condo on SPI!

  • 5 of 5

I never want to stay anywhere else again! The condo is beautifully decorated, perfectly located as close to the beach as you can possibly be, fully stocked with all the comforts of home, just perfect!! The owners make themselves extremely available even leaving their personal cell phone numbers (we never needed them). This unit is very spacious as far as beach condos go. We had two kids under 4 years with us and never felt cramped. The pools and grounds of the condo are kept immaculate and the staff is so friendly. You can walk to the indoor part of Schlitterbahn, which was great in cold weather. Our stay was fantastic and we will definitely be back!
