Texas Gulf Coast Condo Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms - 2 Bathrooms - Sleeps 6

I'm sitting on the couch typing this on my laptop, watching and listening to the waves out the large patio door.

Or, I could walk a few steps onto the balcony that overlooks a beautiful courtyard with grills, pool and hot tub. The security gate off the courtyard takes you directly to the beach.

Newly re-modeled kitchen with granite countertops, new backsplash and stainless appliances.

Both bathrooms upgraded with new walk-in shower in master bath (see pictures).

Walking distance to many restaurants; some as close as a block a way. 'The Wave' is free public transportation that goes all over the island as well as over the bridge to Port Isabel that has a Wal-Mart SuperCenter and HEB for your shopping needs.

Free WiFi in condo; Fully equipped kitchen.


This property is registered with the City of South Padre Island Permit No. 2015-821836.

We do NOT advertise this property on Craig's List-EVER! If you see it available there - it's not real!!

About Sue Jahn

We live in Wisconsin and have owned this property since 2004 when we got it from our parents. They still spend the winter at the condo and we visit occasionally.

We have been renting our condo over the past 10 years through a local rental agency. We have had many very satisfied reviews, but since we decided to rent ourselves over the Internet, we need rebuild our 'satisfied renter' reviews. We hope you will enjoy your stay and give us a good review.

We enjoy our time at the condo, especially the great beach view; and, wish we could be there more often.

Sue Jahn purchased this condo in 2004

Wonderful stay with balcony views

  • 5 of 5

The property and the stay were fantastic! We booked this for our honeymoon and loved being able to walk downstairs to the beach or to just hang out on the balcony watching the surf. South Padre is a great destination. Be sure to check out the restaurants in the area and the Turtle Rescue. The condo was great and the condo staff were helpful and friendly. Would not hesitate in booking a return trip.

Great view!

  • 4 of 5

Condo was clean, plenty spacious for our family of three and has a fantastic view of the beach. Kitchen and bath are updated (fantastic walk in shower!), kitchen very well stocked with all accessories you could need. Super-easy beach access. Building has been nicely maintained with a large pool and convenient place to shower/rinse sand from beach. Owner was responsive, very informative with all the details we needed to know in advance and easy to work with. We were very happy with our stay. Considering the amount of room we had and view/beach access, this condo was a great value. Definitely recommend!

  • 5 of 5

OMG the best experience ever, I absolutely love this condo. Feel like HOME, everything you need is there & a great view, right on the beach. Not only that the front desk people as well as the owner Sue are very good people. It is worth it. I would definitely return.

A perfect time had by all.

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at the property looking for a relaxing week following a hectic few weeks for our family. We were not disappointed. The apartment was exactly as we had envisaged from the listing description, everything we needed was there, and the beach was a handful of metres away. The weather was kind and we made good use of the free bus service to explore our surroundings. Sue had promptly answered our pre-arrival questions and the on-site staff were courteous and ever available. We would unquestionably return from the UK if circumstance allows. A wonderful place to stay in a beautiful part of the world.
