Property Details

Updated: May 21, 2015
Private beach side condo,45 second walk to the beach. 1b.1ba, sleeps up to 6

This renovated top floor corner condo is perfect for that romantic getaway or relaxing vacation that you've been looking for.

Located approximately 30 yards from Beach Access #16, this one-bedroom unit features breathtaking indoor views of both the Gulf of Mexico, and a private balcony that overlooks the beautifully landscaped pool and a spacious spa which is gated and private to the community.

The 765 square-foot unit contains all new furniture and a renovated kitchen. The kitchen is fully stocked with cookware for everyday use. Beach chairs and umbrella are also provided for personal use. There are tile floors throughout the condo. The entire grounds of the community including the pool spa and landscaping are newly renovated. The condo sleeps four comfortably with one queen bed in the master and a fold out sofa in the living room that can easily accommodate two more adults. A maximum of six can sleep within the unit using the queen-size inflatable mattress conveniently located in the linen closet until needed.

Several dining and shopping venues are within walking distance from the property. The Island Cinema is two streets over if you want to catch a new movie release and still get your beach fun in. Local free transportation is stationed directly across the street. In addition to dining and shopping, Schlitterbahn Water Park is only minutes away for those wanting to enjoy water rides, and there is a rental service that offers umbrellas, chairs, and electric cars to make your beach-going experience more unique.

As one of the more popular Spring Break destinations as well as summer hot spots, South Padre Island can't help but have an exciting nightlife. The island comes alive at night and nightclubs offer great live music all year long in major venues, but manages to still have little hideaway bars that host karaoke nights and feature late night food service.

Friday nights in the summer there are fireworks over the bay side of the island and boat tours to take you for a ride on the ocean. All nightlife is close enough to get to easily, and far enough away to avoid if you want peace and serenity.

This is one of the best places on SPI for a relaxing vacation with or without your family. Ventura 301 is privately maintained, larger and more cost effective than an average hotel. Come enjoy the condo that combines lush exterior landscaping with modern living needs!!!

About the Owner

Sitting and breathing in the salty, fresh sea breeze.... I could sit at the beach all day. I, like most, love the ocean and the simultaneous relaxation it brings and the energy it creates.

Not a bad stay!

  • 4 of 5
We stayed at the Condo for two nights in April. Unit owner/manager was great, responded quickly and communicated well. For the price not a bad stay at all. Close to the beach yet near the downtown strip. The street was quiet. I liked how it was a top floor/corner unit the the unit was very quiet. The condo is exactly as advertised. We'd almost have nothing bad to say except for two things. I'll caveat this by saying we are clean freaks. The kind that takes lysol wipes to hotels and on air planes. At first glance the unit looked very very clean. All the major surfaces were clean, appliances, bathrooms ect. Not that they looked clean they really were clean where a lysol wipe didnt bring up any surface dirt/grime. It might have been cleaner than my own house, except for the walls. The walls/doors in some places were dirty with grime/hand prints etc, especially in the bathroom. It wasnt horrible, just enough to notice/bother us slightly. The main reason this isnt a 5 star review is the presence of mold. There was A LOT of mold present on the window sills, sliding doors, in the corner of the ceilings in the unit some in the bathroom. I know its a beach in Texas and humidty is an issue, but this seemed more than just beach humidity. If you have allergies or are sensitive to mold this might bother youl. Other than those two things, this would have been a PERFECT stay.

Great Location

  • 5 of 5
Loved the location. Condo was everything we needed for our stay. Pool & hot tub area are nice & clean. Beach is just across the street. There are a couple of restaurant's within walking distance, but be sure to check out the view from the bar on Pier 19. Everything on the island is only a short drive away, north or south.
Owner was very easy to work with, would stay here in the future.

We had a blast staying in this condo. It was clean comfortable and best of all affordable, it looks just like the pictures. The amenities were awesome and the beach was literally within walking distance. The owner was easy to contact and provided us with the answers to all the many questions we had. We would definitely would recommend this condo and will be contacting the owner for future stays.

Excellent Stay

  • 5 of 5
We were very satisfied with our stay in this condo. The description of the condo was accurate, and any questions I had, the owner replied back very quickly. The property was clean and well-maintained. We really liked that it was just a short walk to the beach. With having three young children and no elevator, climbing up and down the stairs was the only thing that was a chore. We spent most of our time at the beach. That was the best thing to do on the Island.

Covers all our needs

  • 5 of 5
Our 3 night stay in this condo completely exceeded expectation (and they weren't low to begin with). It was clean, easy parking access, easy short walk to the beach, pleasant pool amenities, central island location, and quiet. The owner was easy to reach if we had a question on available amenities both leading up to the trip and during the trip. I have been to SPI probably 10 times, and this was the most fun trip I have had to date.

From the Owner

South Padre Island is an amazing destination in Texas. Ventura in South Padre is a particular gem. This property is right next to the beach. Beautiful landscaping showcases the property's longevity on the island. Mostly occupied by owners, Ventura became the perfect choice for something to enjoy in personal time and be able to share with others.

From the Owner

A beach condo should feel like a home and a getaway simultaneously. Everything you need for daily use is available to you with provided linens, towels, fully stocked kitchen, and beach accessories. The condo is updated regularly, photos are re- taken multiple times a year to help ensure delight and comfort each time you visit. No chores expected when you leave... A cleaning service will launder and clean after check-out, just like you would expect from a resting destination. You will love sitting on the private patio, soaking up the sun at the gated pool, unwinding in the spa or being a few seconds away from having your toes in the sand.
