Overview

About the property

Private beach side condo,45 second walk to the beach. 1b.1ba, sleeps up to 6

This renovated top floor corner condo is perfect for that romantic getaway or relaxing vacation that you've been looking for.

Located approximately 30 yards from Beach Access #16, this one-bedroom unit features breathtaking indoor views of both the Gulf of Mexico, and a private balcony that overlooks the beautifully landscaped pool and a spacious spa which is gated and private to the community.

The 765 square-foot unit contains all new furniture and a renovated kitchen. The kitchen is fully stocked with cookware for everyday use. Beach chairs and umbrella are also provided for personal use. There are tile floors throughout the condo. The entire grounds of the community including the pool spa and landscaping are newly renovated. The condo sleeps four comfortably with one queen bed in the master and a fold out sofa in the living room that can easily accommodate two more adults. A maximum of six can sleep within the unit using the queen-size inflatable mattress conveniently located in the linen closet until needed.

Several dining and shopping venues are within walking distance from the property. The Island Cinema is two streets over if you want to catch a new movie release and still get your beach fun in. Local free transportation is stationed directly across the street. In addition to dining and shopping, Schlitterbahn Water Park is only minutes away for those wanting to enjoy water rides, and there is a rental service that offers umbrellas, chairs, and electric cars to make your beach-going experience more unique.

As one of the more popular Spring Break destinations as well as summer hot spots, South Padre Island can't help but have an exciting nightlife. The island comes alive at night and nightclubs offer great live music all year long in major venues, but manages to still have little hideaway bars that host karaoke nights and feature late night food service.

Friday nights in the summer there are fireworks over the bay side of the island and boat tours to take you for a ride on the ocean. All nightlife is close enough to get to easily, and far enough away to avoid if you want peace and serenity.

This is one of the best places on SPI for a relaxing vacation with or without your family. Ventura 301 is privately maintained, larger and more cost effective than an average hotel. Come enjoy the condo that combines lush exterior landscaping with modern living needs!!!

About Sophie

I could enjoy the beach all day. I, like most, love the ocean and the relaxation it brings and the positive energy it creates. I am avaliable via email, cell or text anytime during your stay! Any special accommodations, just ask! I can help set up your vacation!

Sophie purchased this condo in 2007

Why Sophie chose South Padre Island

South Padre Island is an amazing destination in Texas. Ventura in South Padre is a particular gem. This property is right next to the beach. Beautiful landscaping showcases the property's longevity on the island. Mostly occupied by owners, Ventura became the perfect choice for something to enjoy in personal time and be able to share with others.

What makes this condo unique

A beach condo should feel like a home and a getaway simultaneously. Everything you need for daily use is available to you with provided linens, towels, fully stocked kitchen, and beach accessories. The condo is updated regularly, photos are re- taken multiple times a year to help ensure delight and comfort each time you visit. No chores expected when you leave... A cleaning service will launder and clean after check-out, just like you would expect from a resting destination. You will love sitting on the private patio, soaking up the sun at the gated pool, unwinding in the spa or being a few seconds away from having your toes in the sand.

Nice Property

  • 5 of 5

Overall nice property. It was a short walk to the beach, it was not ready when I was to check in. However Sophie contacted the cleaning people and they had it cleaned. It had what I needed and what you would need in the condo.

Better than described

  • 4 of 5

Based on the photos of this place we were not entirely sure if we would enjoy our stay. Thankfully the property was better than described and I can highly recommend it. The bed was comfortable, needed amenities were included (iron, hair dryer, towels, dishes, beach chairs, etc.), and the place was very clean. We ended up having extra guests use the pullout and they were comfortable as well and there were plenty of towels for all. The pool was very lovely and the owner/manager was quickly responsive through texts. My only critiques would be 1: The ceiling of the shower did seem to have some mold growth starting to show through 2: There were no checkout instructions given in the confirmation emails nor in a binder at the property, so we just tried to guess what was expected of us. 3: Certainly not required, but many properties keep a Britta or similar water pitcher in the fridge for better tasting drinking water. That would have been really wonderful for a beach house. Just an idea to add :) 4: Last, and probably the only actual frustrating part, there were not enough parking spaces for the building. Two nights we got back after 11pm and had to literally park behind someone else's car, blocking them in (and we saw others doing the same). I'm not sure if other guests had more cars than approved, or if parking is too full, but either way it was not ideal.

Overall, I do recommend the apartment and we would not hesitate to stay here again if we were back in the area. Thank you for a pleasant stay.

Very nice, quiet and close to the beach

  • 5 of 5

We had a very nice, relaxing time here. Was not aware it was on the 3rd floor, so lots of stair climbing. The internet was spotty. The bed was super comfy. Close to the beach but thought that they would be more stocked on beach stuff, like an umbrella, cooler, stuff like that. All there was was 2 fold out chairs, that we used to sit on the balcony. We had really nice weather while we were there. Overall it was a great place for us

Great location

  • 5 of 5

We rented this condo on the week of july 4th. 2 teens, wife, and myself. We had so much fun on the island, it was our first time to ever visit, lots of thing to to do just bring money...lol . If there was anythin that i could say negative about the condo were the stairs... the pool was larger than the others in the adjacent houses and there was a hot tub . Will stay again maybe 1st floor next time. This condo is the only one that actually has a veiw of the ocean which was cool. Sophie the owner was very nice and accommodating. Oh yeah the washer and dryer are pay didnt like that either... but over all beautiful place.... thanks Sophie for our beautiful vacation.
