Overview

Texas Gulf Coast Townhome Rental Photos and Description

Private Pool / 4 Bedrooms/ 3.5 Baths / Sleeps 11 - 12

This 3 story modern design beach home features 4 spacious bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms, 1 1/2 bathroom and a private 1 car garage. There's no 'cramming in' at Costa Blanca because of the ample space each bedroom provides. It is a short walking distance to the beach and conveniently located near restaurants and shopping areas. It is privately owned and exceptionally maintained. From the 2nd floor, you can sit on one of two balconies and enjoy the view of South Padre skyline and partial views of both beach and the bay. Enjoy your morning coffee or relax while you watch the sunset. What a great way to start or end your day! You can also sit on rear balcony and enjoy the full view of large lap pool.

Throughout the home, you can expect to find the normal amenities: washer/dryer, dishwasher, wifi,cable TV, etc., but Costa Blanca also offers luxury and elegance: granite counters, marble floors, elegant furniture & 4 balconies.

This home is perfect for two small families or a group of 12.

This vacation home has 4 balconies with partial views of both Beach and Bay side. It is great for a group of no more than 12.

The town home is a short walking distance from beach access. It is also walking distance to restaurants and several shops. The island shuttle (The Wave) provides free transportation to the mainland and throughout the island. Unit B is not in the rental pool and at times is occupied by our on site property manager.

About Lulu

When traveling with my 3 children, I always prefer to rent a private home with all its amenities instead of a hotel. This allows me to relax and spend quality time with my children. Having a fully stocked kitchen for home cooked meals is always a plus.

Lulu purchased this townhome in 2011

Why Lulu chose Texas Gulf Coast

Unique mediterranean building with Spacious bedrooms for 2 familes or one large family. Private bathrooms for all bedrooms on 2nd floor.

What makes this townhome unique

Vacation home is a short walking distance to beach access (300 meters). Views of both bay and beach.

The place was nice but had a couple issues

  • 3 of 5

We had a fun vacation. Just a couple things that didn't work: living room tv, 3rd floor tv in the room to the left and dishwasher. There were two umbrellas outside by the pool and the older one fell over on us while we were swimming. It was not sturdy. The outside gate was off the hinges and was very unsafe to use when trying to rinse the sand off from the beach.

Owner's Response: I would like for our readers to know that Guests who wrote the three star review never reported any issues with televisions or with dishwasher. Furthermore, we have had 5 more families check into this home during July and no one has experienced problems with TVs or dishwasher. The side gate was caught by a very strong wind and was pulled off its hinges but it was repaired within a couple of days.

Great stay!!!

  • 4 of 5

My family and I spent four nights at the coasta Blanca location and it was amazing it was very clean upon arrival Miss Lulu took care of everything that she needed to we had some computer issues in the beginning but everything was taken care of and the pool pays for itself. I would advise you about the three flights of stairs we did not take that into account and by day 2 our legs were throbbing.. There was some construction going on she was working on the grill I did call her and let her know that there were people in and out of the pool area She advised me that they were not supposed to be there and that she would take care of it. The house is very well-maintained some of the utensils may need to be updated but we went to Walmart and bought the things that we needed but other than that the stay was amazing I would recommend it to my friends and family and we will definitely stay at this location again.we also really appreciated the fact that there were chairs available for us to take to the beach they also had coolers available.I hope this review helps I really enjoyed my stay in South Padre Island I hope whoever is reading this does the same.

Great Location and Beautiful Place

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this great location for the months of January and February. There are several things to do that are all within walking distance from Costa Blanca. The place was well maintained and very clean. The photos and write up on the unit that were out on VRBO were accurate as the place was as nice as displayed. We really enjoyed our stay at South Padre Island and plan to return again next year. Over the period of our stay we got to know Lulu and she is a fantastic person who performed outstanding customer service. She was very helpful in telling us some great places to see and gave us some useful tips on places to try for dining and entertainment. We would highly recommend this place to anyone.
