2nd Year Stay

  • 5 of 5

For the 2nd year in a row my Mother and I stayed in this condo on the coast. We went later this year as we had a family member with health issues that delayed getting away to the beach. The weather was great! Cooler than in September and actually liked the temperature better than our previous stay in September the year before. The Sand Castle festival was going on the weekend we arrived and it was fun to walk a short distance down the beach to Clayton's to view the artists creating their sand castle art. An Aunt joined my mother and I this year and she had a great time. She had knee surgery the year before so the location so close to the sand & water was perfect as she did not have to walk far to enjoy the beach. She sat in her chair either on the condo patio or on the beach and read 4 books during our stay. She said that was a special treat to have that kind of time to relax and enjoy her books. As a busy grandmother she doesn't get that opportunity these days. I do wish Bahia Mar would change the ocean front steps to a ramp for wheelchair access to the beach. I have a Sister who handicapped and would be nice to just rent a beach wheelchair (already found the company right on the island who will deliver/pickup one) and just wheel her from the condo to the water front. However, only a few stairs for those that are not wheel chair bound. Since Mom and I knew our way around the island and Port Isabel a bit from the year before we enjoyed showing my Aunt our favorite shops and restaurants. We ventured to the Turtle Rescue facility and drove around looking at sand-castle art spread throughout the island. As we were leaving and crossing the causeway bridge to Port Isabel heading home, we saw a dolphin in the bay poking his head out of the water as is to wave goodbye! Made me smile and felt was a good omen. We are already planning a 3rd trip back in the Spring of 2015 and hoping to bring my Sister to enjoy our new found beach hide-a-way!

Cannot Be Beat......

  • 5 of 5

Two of us spent nine great days at this condo in late July 2016. The Location, literally on the beach, is excellent. Everything needed for a perfect vacation is there. Security (wrist bands, parking passes, gated) ensures both safety and privacy. The beach is literally steps from the back door, as is the pool. We've spent many vacations @ Padre over the past 10-15 years and truly feel this is the best venue on the island. Communication and assistance from the owner is superb. IMO you cannot find better accommodations on SPI. Highly recommended.

Wonderful spot. Security around the condos really assures that the place is safe and that there is no wild parties. Closest condo to the beach. We will be back.

Awesome Place with a Few Improvements Needed

  • 4 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyed this condo being on the first floor on the beach side. Great view and so convenient to go to the beach, pool or parking lot.

This unit has some electrical issues with the bathroom lights and some large roaches, but did not let either ruin our trip. Informed the office of these needed improvements at checkout and they said the unit will be updated soon.

Enjoyed the fireworks over the water which were shot off from Clayton's on Friday and Saturday nights. This was a very short walk down the beach.

I would recommend this unit to friends and relatives.

Great location, close to East pool, the deck and steps to the beach.

  • 5 of 5

We were in a ground level condo as requested and the layout of the space functioned very well for our 2 generation, family group of 6. The accommodations were comfortable for sleeping as well as relaxing in the living area. The kitchen was well equipped and the dining area large enough to easily accommodated our group. In addition, the condo had a private patio with a table and chairs which offered an optional place to have casual meals or beverages. The patio also had an outdoor shower with hot water, providing a convenient place to rinse off after trips to the beach or pool. Overall, we were very pleased with the condo and enjoyed our stay. We will recommend it to friends and family and likely request it again for future vacations. We'd like to offer a special THANK YOU to the management for promptly responding to our concerns when we arrived and doing everything possible to insure that we were comfortable and our stay was enjoyable.
