Property Details

Updated: May 27, 2015
2 Bedroom, 1.5 Bathroom, Wonderful Semi-private Pool/Patio - WiFi

This cozy and very convenient 2 bedroom/1.5 bathroom home is the perfect family rental to enjoy South Padre Island to its fullest. The Condo has a large flat LCD TV in the living area, a fully equipped kitchen and bedrooms with very comfortable mattresses. One queen size bed in the main bedroom and two twin beds in bedroom #2, with a TV in each bedroom. There is a vertical washer and dryer center conveniently located in the home and close to the bedrooms.

The beach is just a brisk walk (about 4-5 minutes) East from the condo. South Padre Island main street is half a block away to the West, very close to several restaurants and novelty retail stores.

A wonderful and refreshing semi-private pool (shared by only two the units) awaits you and your family when you come back from the beach. The patio also features a stone picnic table and tropical patio furniture, all surrounded by year-round flower beds.

About the Owner

I'm an Industrial Engineer, specialized in Manufacturing Systems. Originally from Argentina, but a local resident for the last 30 years. My wife and I enjoy coming to SPI on a very frequent basis (we live only 25 minutes away from SPI). Really good restaurants here...good ambient. Wonderful sea breeze!

Fantastic Property and Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5
Can't say enough good things about our stay at Casa Malbec, Unit C. Pet friendly was the main reason we chose this but it ended up being the last reason that we would stay here again. This was our wedding anniversary getaway and I just returned from an overseas deployment with the military so we needed rest and rejuvenation.
The kitchen is updated and is stocked with everything you need to cook and serve with. i would recommend bringing a cutting board and a chef's knife if you like to cook.
The floor, linens and furnishings were immaculate and the pool was sparkling clear. Even with other tenants staying in the other apartments, it felt like we had the whole place to ourselves. The pool area is nicely landscaped and secluded from the surrounding properties.
Location is just right. Took us just five minutes to walk to the beach.
The property owner, Roberto, replied quickly to every question we had and I got the feeling that if we needed anything at anytime he had our back.
I would highly recommend this property for your next vacation! Great price, location, and everything :)

Very positive experience!

  • 5 of 5
Casa Malbec Unit C exceeded expectations! Unit was very clean and well provisioned for our stay. Location was very convenient -- We like to walk, and were easily able to walk to boomerang Billys, Louies backyard, etc. Roberto is quick to reply to e-mails and the transaction process was smooth... We would stay again.

Family Vacation

  • 4 of 5
Our family had a fun and relaxing stay at this property. We are already making plans to stay there again next year. We enjoyed the fully furnished kitchen, since we do cook a lot ( just missing a few things though ex: pasta strainer and metal spatula, not a big deal though just FYI for future renters) . The outside patio area and pool was comfortable and relaxing especially after a long day at the beach. I will highly recommend this property to family and friends. The only issue we had was that the pool became cloudy on our second to last day.

Fantastic place, Perfect for our vacation

  • 5 of 5
This place was perfect for our week long family vacation. The wife and I, 2 kids and 2 dogs enjoyed our stay. There was plenty of space for all of us. It was real close to the beach as we went everyday like twice a day. The place was fully equipped and ready to go before we got there. There were plates, pans, glasses and utensils. Also, towels were provided for showers and such. I love the fact that I didn't have to carry a key around all week for the rental. Easy access to get in as it was keypad entry. We really enjoyed our stay there and plan to rent this place again for any future return trips back to Padre.

Location / Location / Wonderful Experience

  • 5 of 5
They always say Location / Location matters.. This Location to Casa Melbec was perfect. walking distance to the beach and to shops. We really enjoyed the home and thank you for sharing your home. The home was very cozy and homey feeling. I wish the weather was better so we could of utilize the pool and beach. We also really appreciate the owners concerns and prompt response. We had a last minute issue with our dog sitter and the owner accommodated us which means so much to us. We had an issue with the lights being out and he responded to our call and updated us what was happening. We understand that there are things out of our control which was the weather which effected a power outage but the owner was fabulous and we thank you so much. We will and have recommended casa melbec to our friends and family and will be rebooking for next years conference. thank you once again we really appreciate it!!

It's walking distance to the beach, which my wife and I enjoy it very much. It is also very close to some good restaurants such as PadreRitaVille and Blackbeards and to the local supermarket, the Blue Marlin.
