Guestbook comments from the manager

July 20th-27th 2013-- My husband and I come to

South Padre every year with our 2 children. This

was the first year we stayed at the Dahkarti

Penthouse at the Aquarius, we came with our

children, my mother and father in law, my sister,

her husband and their 2 children. Kids ages are 9,

8, 6, and 4. We loved it, by far the best trip thus

far. The condo was remarkably clean and

comfortable. There was plenty of room,

specifically a large living room area. The pictures

can't do the condo justice. SPI rentals were

fabulous, we only had one small issue with one of

the 3 toilets not flushing, they sent someone over

immediately to fix it. You can view the Friday night

fire works well from the master bedroom balcony.

The children loved their upstairs private loft that

was plenty big for our four and then some. Only

advice I can give is if you are big cookers like my

family, consider bringing a skillet of your own.

There are a few there, but due to normal wear

they can be difficult to cook with, one bows up in

the center, and one leans to the side however, we

made due just fine. The decor of the condo makes

the stay inviting, these owners have done an

awesome job making it a home away from home.

We will definitely be returning to stay here again

in the future.



Homeowner Response:



Thanks for letting us know about the skillets, we will be ordering replacements today!

Awesome place!

  • 5 of 5
This property is very clean and very comfortable, like a home away from home. The property is well secured and the onsite staff is very nice. I would recommend this property to all friends and family, infact, we have reserved this place for two more visits since we initially stayed here. Franke Realtors has also been very nice and accommodating. The whole thing has made for a wonderful experience!

Wonderful vacation

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I spent our second year in a row at the Aquarius Penthouse in January. We love staying there. We have claimed our title as Winter Texans. The condo is as comfortable as our home. The management company, Jill and Will, are very good at answering any questions and poor Will has had to come out at night to fix small problems but he always came in less than an hour and took care of the problem. The views can't be beat anywhere else on the island. We loved the new interior. The new kitchen is beautiful. I can promise that as long as we are able, we will be back every year. We might even try another time of year but this last trip was perfect weather. I would recommend anyone to stay there,

Thank you for a Wonderful Family time

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 9 had the most wonderful time at the Penthouse Aquraris. The views are breathtaking, access to the beach is right there. The Penthouse was clean, staff very friendly. The management company was easy to work with and responded to all requests very quickly.
The only negative is the loft stairway is not adequate for adults to comfortably use. This is a circular metal and very narrow stairway. Hard to access for older adults.
Other than that, our stay was the best time we have had together.
The pictures are very accurate as to what the Penthouse looks like.
Thank you, we loved it and will be back again.

Not So Hot

  • 1 of 5
Unfortunately, we found this penthouse to be dirty, unkept, and musty. Dust was caked onto the plumbing and other areas. It appeared that no real work had been done to improve the unit. The decor and paint were very strange looking. The ceiling showed water damage and in need of major repair. The door knob to one bedroom routinely came off in my hand. The only saving grace was the great views toward the gulf and back to the bay toward Port Isabel.

Owner's Response: We have just given the Penthouse a major face lift. We have painted most of the interior walls and ceiling. We replaced some of the antique furniture that had a musty smell. Please check out our new pictures as this unit now has a brighter fresh look. We have also changed our rental management company & changed our cleaning crew. *** We have updated again *** 2014 update -New interior paint - Fully remodeled Kitchen w/ new appliances & new cabinets.
The 2 king & 1 queen beds are all brand new sleep number mattresses.
New 4 post bed in the master bedroom.

Memorial Day Memories...

  • 4 of 5
The Penthouse at the Aquarius was a great place to stay on the Island. You have a great view of the gulf and the bay from the balconies. There was plenty of room for 12 people to stay comfortably. We loved having the washer/dryer so we could put on a clean bathing suit each day. The staff at the Aquarius does a good job maintaining the grounds and pool and they are very friendly. The agents with Franke Realtors were very helpful...even providing phone #'s for reputable fishing guides (even though we didn't get to go due to the very windy conditions during our stay). Also due to the very windy conditions, the water at the beach wasn't as clear as we remembered from the prior year...but the temperature was great..and not much sea weed either. Hopefully next year it won't be as windy, so we can see our toes when we go out chest deep again. The beach was super clean and we really enjoyed just relaxing and playing in the sand/water. We cooked for each meal and found the kitchen was nicely stocked...just make sure to bring seasoning (salt/pepper etc.)and coffee filters and the such. You should also bring extra trash bags as only 2-3 were provided. The a/c worked great and kept us cool and comfortable in most rooms...there were no ceiling fans, so if you like to sleep with a fan, you might want to bring yourself a stand fan. Even though it was a busy Memorial Day weekend...the Island didn't seem overcrowded like one might expect.

Memorable Stay--As good As It Gets-No Cedar!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed here in mid-January for great off season rate. It is even better than the pictures. Had all kinds of plans but rarely left this elegant, comfortable respite with every amenity. Did go to the S.P.I. nature boardwalk twice and saw many rare birds but later realized many of these same rarities we flying eye-level off the great surround Penthouse balconies. Very close to the ocean because of way building is angled-ocean and island views/sunsets/sunrises here are amazing and the water and beach was crystal clean and beautiful--even made us glad we cancelled our Florida trip and stayed here. Only ate out once-great fried Mahi Mahi and music out over bay where locals go called Palm Street Pier. The rest of time cooked in Condo kitchen with a wow! view. You feel like you are floating cause all you see is the sea. (Well-equipped dish wise but bring Everything else from coffee filters, oil, to salt and pepper.) Thanks Bill, for the memories..
