About the property

Top-floor 2BR/2BA condo with panoramic views near South Padre restaurants

It pays to be an early riser at Pat's Condo. As you sip your morning coffee on your private balcony and watch the golden sunrise over the Gulf, you might decide to stay awhile. All you need to pack is your swimsuit.

I named this top-floor, two-bedroom condo in honor of my mom, who fell in love with the place at first sight, just like I'm sure you will. It's that view: South Padre's pristine while-sand beaches and the gentle waves of the deep-blue Gulf, stretching out as far as the eye can see. You can't help but be mesmerized!

The view greets you when you wake up each morning, wrapped in 400-thread-count sheets on an ultra-comfortable king-sized bed in the master bedroom. There's nothing standing between you and that beautiful beach, so pop a coffee pod in the Keurig and get ready to head out.

But first you must wake the kids from the guest bedroom, with two queen beds that let them spread out like royalty. Both bedrooms have their own full baths, already equipped with shampoo, conditioner, body wash, hair dryers and plenty of fluffy towels. (There's also a queen-sized pull-out couch in the living room for extra guests.)


The condo comes stocked with all you need for a great beach day: umbrellas, beach chairs, coolers, boogie boards, the works. Hop on the bikes included in your rental to ride from one end of the Island to the other. Now for some professional-grade relaxation.

By evening, head back to the condo complex, where the kids can splash in one of the two pools and hot tubs while you throw some steaks on the grill. Or forget about cooking: South Padre's best restaurant district is just steps away.

After dinner, challenge your traveling companions to a rousing game of Monopoly or settle in to watch a movie on one of the unit's three LCD TV's. Pick something from our video library or browse Netflix and Amazon on the upgraded premium broadband internet.

On day two of your vacation, the options are endless: a game of tennis on the recently resurfaced courts? An afternoon of thrills next door at Schlitterbahn water park? (discounted tickets available at our manager's office.) Or maybe just hanging out on the balcony with a book, taking in that sparkling sea view...


With 300 days of sunshine and 34 miles of white-sand beaches, South Padre Island is as close to paradise as you can get. Enjoy tons of outdoor activities, relaxing spas, great restaurants, exciting nightlife and unparalleled shopping.

Pat's Condo is located on the island's south end, right next to La Isla Blanca park. We're just to the right of the bridge, which means you won't waste any time sitting in traffic. The Schlitterbahn water park is literally next door (but far enough away that you won't hear any park noise.)

This cozy, fully equipped condo puts you and your family right in the heart of South Padre Island, close to the action but perched above it all. Up here, it's just you and the eternal emerald-blue sea.

About Wendy Hovorka

We have been coming to South Padre ever since 1999, when we moved from Kansas to McAllen for my husband's work. I purchased our first condo in effort to force my husband to quit working so much, at least on the weekends to spend time with our family. My plan was successful and we have had our best memories here. There is so much to do for everyone. Please contact me if you need ideas! hope you enjoy the island as much as we have for the past 15+ years!

Wendy Hovorka purchased this condo in 2016

Why Wendy Hovorka chose South Padre Island

My parents and I looked at this condo at Sea Vista in July of 2014. My parents decided they wanted to live at South Padre half the year in effort to be closer to us and have a warm place to go to beat the harsh Kansas winters. Out of all the condos we looked at that day, this one was my mom's favorite due to the beautiful top floor views and its proximity to the beach and ocean. Sadly, my mom died unexpectedly shortly after they saw this condo and the condo was eventually sold. As luck would have it, this condo recently came up for sale again and I knew I had to buy it. It was kismet! I hope you and your family/friends enjoy this condo as much as I know my mother would have! :)

What makes this condo unique

I have yet to find a condo at the island that has such a great view of the ocean! This condo really does have million dollar views! Sea Vista condos are unique in that they are the closest condos to the beach. Our condo is in building 1, which has the fewest amount of rentals and it's the building that is next to la Isla Blanca park. Since there are no other condos to the south of us, you are able to see both the ocean and the bay. Also, this side of the island is very easy to access since we are just to the right of the bridge. Traffic can get very congested during peak island times on the other side of the island but not for us!

The best

  • 5 of 5

We just finished a very pleasant stay at the Sea Vista. The furnishings are very comfortable and the decorating was very tasteful. We have been renting condos by the month for many years and this one is at the top. Everything needed to be comfortable was in abundant supply and high quality. We were only there a few days before renting it again for 2019!

Seavisita 606 awesome place

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed at other places on SPI and Sea Vista 606 was the best so far. 606 has all the small details included, kitchen was well appointed. Bathroom had plush towels of beachy colors. Beach views of 606 were unbelievable! The place felt like our beach house from the day we arrived. The entire commu ity is well kept and clean. We loved being so close to the beach and to have bikes available to ride was a big plus! Wendy has thought of everything! Our stay was very comfortable, would Highly recommend 606 if you are considering an spi visit.
