Overview

About the property

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.

Great property and location

  • 5 of 5

This property has great access to the beach. The amenities in the condo are perfect for a family. The condo staff, maintenance and security are fantastic. The owners are quick to respond to any issues.

The only draw back is with the new Schlitterbahn resort next door the amount of people on the private beach has increased and the noise level on weekends at the resort could be an issue.

Party of Eight-Girls Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this property Friday to Monday for a girls getaway weekend. The property is gorgeous, nicely decorated, with a fabulous view. We were steps away from beach access and enjoyed sitting on the porch watching and listening to the ocean. When we weren't at the beach we were at the pool which was also very nice and clean. The owners have everything you could possibly need from pots and pans to beach chairs and responded to emails very fast. Beds were extremely comfortable and clean. Everyone was very impressed with this property and we are already planning next years getaway!

Everything is Great!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was really in the perfect location! Right out the back door to the beach. It was supplied with EVERYTHING and ANYTHING that you would need. The building is very quiet and perfect for a relaxing getaway with friends or family. The house was very spacious and comfortable. The views from the floor to ceiling windows are also AMAZING. If I ever make it back to South Padre, it will be just to stay here!

Phenomenal spot for a beach vacation with family

  • 5 of 5

I just spent a week here with my wife, two young kids, and my parents. The condo is a literal stone's throw away from the beach, and about a 10-second walk from the pool. It's also a comfortable 1-mile jaunt from the south end of the island, where you can fish from the jetty and watch the dolphins in the channel. I have a hard time imagining a more ideal location than this one. What a luxury, especially on a vacation with kids, to be able to just fling open the door and run out to the water!

The house itself is very comfortable, clean, and cozy, with a consistent, but not overbearing, beach motif. There are giant windows in the living area and master bedroom, with one-way glass and roll-down screens inside, which provide excellent sunrise views and privacy. All the bedrooms have ample closet/storage space, comfortable beds, and TVs. The owner's closet had more than enough chairs and beach toys to keep everyone happy. The kitchen was fairly spacious and well-stocked, with an excellent coffee maker. The living area had a nice balance of furniture and floor space. It is notable that the 4 adults and 2 children never felt crowded or in each other's way (having experienced the "too much furniture" effect before). This is a very well-laid-out, comfortable place to stay.

A couple minor quibbles: the door to the master bedroom is a slightly finicky sliding door that abuts the living area - it seems like originally it may have been part of a single open area that was later closed off. It takes a bit of effort to open and close. Also, the dial markings on the stove have rubbed off, so it is impossible to tell where high and low are on the electric burners. I had to look up the stove on Google images and look at a picture to figure it out.

That aside, the location alone is worth the price of entry, and on top of that, the house itself is a gem. I would repeat this vacation again in a heartbeat.
