S Padre Island Bayhouse - Bayfront, Fish-Dock!


Property Details

Updated: Sep 9, 2014
House, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, 12 Sleeps

Puesta Del Sol Bayhouse.

This waterfront house is located on the bayside, just down the

street from Blackbeard's Restaurant. The property has a lighted

fishing pier. One of South Padre's best kept secrets is

that this is one of the best night fishing spots on the entire

island! (Guests have attested to this...) This is a great location

for a fishing getaway or family vacation! The spacious concrete

patio has fantastic views of the bay, and is ideal for a sunset


Upstairs/downstairs units are adjoined by an interior staircase and

can be rented separately or as one unit!See description of upstairs

and downstairs units below.

The fishing!: From the dock, you can catch trout, redfish, and

snook. At night, you can fish with live shrimp under the lights.

This is most effective when you can actually see the trout swimming

in and out of the lights. Redfish are usually caught at the dark

edges of the light or directly under the pier. Snook are usually

caught under the pier or around the pilings. The best way to fish

with live shrimp is to "free shrimp", where you only tie a treble

hook to your line and nothing else, and let the shrimp swim freely

under the lights. You can also fish on the bottom with a lead

weight and shrimp, finger mullet, or live croaker. This is a great

way to catch redfish or occasionally black drum. The best time to

catch trout under the lights is when the tide is coming in strong.

The house is right on a channel, and schools of trout move through

the channel with the rising or falling tide. I have

been told that fishing on the bottom works well sometimes during the

middle of the day.

Hello Robin

We stayed at the Bayhouse in mid September. We enjoyed it so much that we plan to return next year. Our primary goal was to fish and that's what we did. The fishing was great and exceeded or expectations. The unit was very nice and included all of the comforts of home. The bed and bedding could use some attention.

Overall, I would recommend Bayhouse.

Awesome Bayhouse

  • 5 of 5
My party and I were really impressed with the house. The description and pictures you see is exactly what you get plus more. The deck was awesome and a great place for fishing. We had a great time and enjoyed the house. We did not want our stay to end. If you are looking for a nice, relaxing place to stay, I highly recommend this Bayhouse!! I would definitely rent this bayhouse again.

The downstairs unit has one bedroom & 1 bathroom and sleeps 6, with one queen, 2 twins (trundle bed) and 2 full-size futons. There is another full kitchen, washer & dryer, & Air Conditioning (Two window units). There is Cable TV/VCR's in the living room. Wheelchair accessiblity: My wife has an uncle who is confined to a wheelchair, and uses the bayhouse downstairs regularly. The front door to the downstairs has an approximate 4" step up from the asphalt. The sliding glass door to the bayside of the downstairs has two sets of sliding glass door tracks, but no steps or change in floor level. The fishing pier is two steps down (approx 6" each) from the concrete paving and seawall. I should note that although my wife's uncle regularly comes to fish, he always has assistance, especially to get up and down from the fishing pier. The biggest concern might be the bathroom downstairs. Although it does have a walk-in shower and no tub, it is a bit small and would most likely not fit a wheelchair.
