South Padre Island 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.

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.

A wonderful week!

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I met in SPI for a week, and had the BEST time! We spent our time walking on the beach, laying by the pool (sometimes we were the only ones there!), trying many of the local restaurants, reading, reading, and reading! It was great having two beach chairs and an umbrella to take to the beach with us, as the rentals were expensive. The condo was perfect and we really appreciated having WiFi in the condo instead of having to go downstairs to use the common WiFi access area. The views were lovely--gorgeous sunrises over the ocean from the living room balcony, and sunsets over the bay from the balcony by the bedrooms--the best of both worlds. The condo had most everything we needed--and what it lacked, we picked up at the Dollar Store in Brownsville--small containers of soap for the dishwasher, liquid dish soap, bar soap for the bathrooms and Kleenex. We loved having the recliners in the living room--so comfortable, and a great spot to sit and read or watch TV. The weather was perfect, though we were both hoping for a rainy, stormy hour or two! We tried many of the restaurants others had recommended and our favorites were Ceviche Ceviche and Yummies. We also tried Ted's, Grapevine Cafe, Pier 19, BurgerFi, Kelly's, Cap'n Roy's, Chilitto Pikin, Gabriella's, Daddy's, Louie's & the breakfast tacos at Stripes. Sue was very responsive to all our questions prior to booking the condo, and provided all the information we needed to feel very comfortable once we arrived there. The condo building was older, but nicely maintained--the landscaping looked like it had been manicured, it was so perfect. We enjoyed ourselves, and hope to return. Thanks, Sue, for sharing your lovely condo with us.

Easy access to the beach with great views.

  • 4 of 5

The condo is small but well kept. Everything that you need is provided. The beach is easily accessed. The pool and hot tub area was clean as well as the area for grilling. Our only complaints is that we found a dirty coffee cup in the cupboard and two dirty utensils in the tray. Not the owners fault as they live out of state, but whoever does the cleaning needs to check better before putting things away. Overall we enjoyed our stay and would recommend this unit.

Neat, simple, priceless beach access and views

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at Aquarius. While the building is a bit dated, it was impeccably clean and the front desk staff were kind and helpful (one gentleman even gave us a cup of sugar for coffee). The condo itself is perfect for two couples or a small family. Again, not too much, nothing amiss... Lovely cool AC, cozy comfy beds. There were beach toys, umbrellas, even a foldaway crib for my son. Sue was also easy to reach and very helpful.

The only thing to remember is bring your own drinking water - the building has fine water for dish washing and bathing but you'll want bottled to drink.

Amazing, a very special stay.

We were very happy with this condo.

  • 5 of 5

We do not have anything negative to say or share about #307 Aquarius. Clean, comfortable and quiet. We would highly recommend this property. We are a family of 4 - mom, dad and 2 daughters ages 17 and 12 - and were more than happy and content. The sunrises (every morning) were enjoyed with our morning coffee on the balcony. We were able to watch the fireworks on our last night from the other balcony. We enjoyed the pool, the beach, the ocean and it's amazing waves. My daughters and I went horseback riding and had a great time. Our favorite meal out was at Davy Jones in Port Isabel for ice cream:-). We ate most of our meals at the condo but did eat out once each at Parrot Eyes and Pier 19. Both very good. Thank you again for letting us stay at your condo.

It felt like home. Loved the ocean view from the balcony. It was so nice to have that extra space. Everything was clean and in the unit. We enjoyed the pool and the beach! Would stay there again!
