Holidays are a pleasure at this spacious townhome. Just a few steps to the beautiful powder-soft sand of South Padre Island Beach. This inviting townhouse is just across the street from the sand - and you save plenty! You get the privacy of a spacious townhouse for the price of a smaller condominium
Lots of advertisements say they are 'close to the beach', but with us, the beach is literally just steps away. You are right there! Just walk past two homes, cross the street and the beach entrance is right there.
And you will not be cramped in a condominium. You will have a full 1850 square foot house to enjoy. This is the place you want if you have a family (or two) on vacation!
The dual master suites can comfortably accommodate 6 adults. Each of the two very spacious bedroom suites has a queen-size bed and the one also has a day-bed, and both have their own full bath. With the fold-out queen-size sofa-sleeper and the additional day-bed in the living room for the kids, a total of 10 sleep comfortably.
The two bedroom balconies provide a nice reading area in the morning sun or a great place to eat dinner (and the kids will love the picnic bench) There are also two additional balconies in the front of the house.
This 'home away from home' comes with all amenities. Three TVs, cable, DVD, stereo, and CD keep you well entertained while not at the beach. There are many upgrades, including tiled kitchen and living room, and Berber carpeting in the bedrooms. Each bathroom has a pretty Talavera sink.
A full kitchen, with dishwasher and all dishware, cookware and utensils, is included for your convenience. There is a separate dining area. Bed linens and other necessities are provided for your care-free holiday. A washer and dryer make packing easy!
The far end of the island is a state park, where you can be completely alone on the beach - to meditate, relax or watch the dolphins playing! The island also has horse back riding, a water park, a sea-turtle shelter/museum, boat tours (for great fishing and for dolphin-viewing tours), fantastic restaurants and nightclubs.
South Padre Island island is the perfect get-away destination to relax. The sugar-white, powder-soft beaches are a sight to behold, as is the tranquil, clear turquoise water. The Gulf water averages 78 degrees year-round. Dolphins can often be seen playing. Activities include hiking, biking, fishing, deep sea fishing, sail boating, scuba diving, snorkeling, kayaking, and wind surfing. There is a championship golf course ten minutes away. There is even free bus service to get around the island. Or visit Mexico for a shopping experience - it is only 25 miles away.
There are fantastic restaurants - Seafood, Barbecue, and Mexican -or get some just - caught jumbo shrimp from the fisherman and grill it yourself.
Have a vacation you will always remember !
This property is registered with the town of South Padre Island, permit # 2016-122340.
This townhouse is so much bigger than the typical condos on the island. If you are a family, you will apprecaite all the room - 1800 sq ft plus 4 balconies. The kids can sleep upstairs and you can still relax downstairs.
Loved the location. Lots of places for walking especially on the beach. Wonderful restaurants ranging from beach bars to nicer restaurants - really liked the seafood. No golf courses on the island but found a few within easy driving distance. Had another couple stay a couple nights and it was nice that both bedrooms had private bathrooms. The home was very comfortable. One thing that could be improved would be better deck furniture. Had a great vacation. Weather was awesome.
we had a great vacation. the island has plenty to keep the kids busy. the location is right across the street from the beach. the house is very clean and lots of room. we would recommend a stay.
We enjoyed our stay at this property. The townhome was in great condition and very roomy for the 2-4 of us that stayed there. We liked the beach view from the decks. The location is fantastic and a short 1 block walk to the beach. What we liked the most is that we did not need to rent a car while staying on the island. We could walk to restaurants or hop on the Wave to get anywhere on the island we needed. We enjoyed walking on the beach during sunrise to the best restaurant on the island - the Palm Cafe. We also recommend eating at Yummies Coffee shack for breakfast. We will definitely stay here again - so much quieter and private than even the best hotel on the island!!!
Myself, a good friend, my daughter and her boyfriend all came to SPI to enjoy a long weekend!! The townhouse was perfect. The layout gave us privacy and plenty of space to hang around the house. Any problems such as light bulbs needing replaced, were quickly handled by John, who is the person on call for you while at your stay!!! We could use the patios for breakfast each morning or enjoy the indoor dining in the roomy dining area! The townhome was well kept and ready for our stay. The pictures on the advertising of the home made it easy to recognize when we drove down the street.
Beds were comfy and the kitchen was well stocked with utensils, cooking items, and cups and plates!
The location made it easy to get to whatever activity we pursued each day. My daughter and her boyfriend walked to the beach every day we were there and took advantage of the closeness to the beach!! Ira was a pleasure to work with and kept in touch all through the process of setting up the rental and getting information to us in a timely fashion.
I appreciate the good communication. For the cost, this was one of the best stays on the beach I have had and we do this at least two times each year. I recommend the townhome to anyone wanting to enjoy a stay on South Padre Island!! Nothing is far when driving and you can catch The Wave (bus) easily, too! We enjoyed the Turtle Rescue, Clayton's, parasailing! and the Dinner cruise. Of course, just lying on the beach was great, too!
We had a lovely two month stay at "life's a beach" - we loved all the room and the location was perfect!!!
The island was very relaxed & small enough to be close to everything - the wonderful restaurants had delicious seafood - we went a whole week eating nothing but gulf shrimp -so fun!! The cost of eating out was not bad at all - we expected to pay more. Everything was set up so that the renters would have everything they needed and more!! Loved our time there and would definitely stay again - as it turns out I am a beach lover - was awesome to walkout the door and be at the beach in two minutes - enjoying the pounding surf and waves and seagulls!! I miss the beach!!! Great winter stay over spot!!!
This a a great place to stay. It has everything you need and Ira is wonderful host. He'll give you the scoop of all the places to eat and what to do.
The condo is soooo peaceful - it felt like we were the only ones on the street!
The picture above is from the balcony and it is real. The beach is amazing and they take care of the beach every morning and take away any seaweed or junk. The water is beautiful and the waves were great fun for me and my family.
It takes about 3 minutes to get to the beach... you just walk across the street and the beach access is right there.
You'll love it if you go.
