"Best on the Beach" Like New Aquarius

"Best on the Beach" Like New Aquarius

Overview

Property Details

Updated: Sep 9, 2014
Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, 6 Sleeps

Totally renovated Aquarius sparkles like new. My 2nd Floor Beachfront condo has also been completely renovated and refurbished better than new. Year round sunshine, surf, and sandy beach with Laguna Madre Bay just blocks away. Watch the sunrise while having your morning coffee on living room deck then stroll the beach just footsteps from the gated pool area below. A block away from Padre Blvd. for shopping, dining, and entertainment and another block West to the shoreline of the Laguna Madre where you can enjoy magnificent sunsets sipping your favorite beverage and enjoying fresh oysters, shrimp, and other Island seafood specialties. Stay for 3 nights, a week, or join the Winter Texans for a month or longer and escape the North country.

Clean, comfortable, great value

  • 5 of 5
This condo is in a great location, close to everything. The building is clean, and the 24 hour staff is fantastic. The snowbirds have all sorts of activities in the building if you care to join in. Beautiful grounds and pool area, large laundry room.
The condo is right on the beach. The front balcony overlooks the ocean and morning sun, the side balcony is in the afternoon sun. The unit is clean and comfortable, with plenty of seating.We only used the master bedroom and found the bed comfortable. During the week it is very quiet at night, only snowbirds around.
Bob was great to work with, any concerns I always received a quick response to. He has some of the staff there to help with anything you need.
Be sure and go to the birding center on the island, also a short trip to Laguna Atascosta wildlife refuge and take the tram or bus tour.
For a cheap piña colada walk over to Daddy's Cajun restaurant. If you hit a rainy day there is also a movie theatre on the island, go early because everyone else will be heading there also.
We will stay with Bob's condo again when we return, wish we were still there!

Great Value

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this wonderfully renovated and cozy condo from 8/17 to 8/20/2013 and had a splendid time in the island. The condo is equipped with everything any vacationer would want or need and more. Would rent it again in a heartbeat if we return to south padre.

Fourth of July-Great Condo

  • 5 of 5
My family just got back from Padre for the Fourth of July. We really enjoyed staying at this condo and it was equipped with anything you could need. (Also, since others had mentioned a smell I thought I would note that we did not notice any smells). The view of the beach was great! Plus, after walking up and down almost the entire 3 mile beach front, think this was one of the best areas. Fourth of July is very busy, but we always found a spot and didn't feel crowded. Great for families! I also liked how close it was to walk to restaurants on the Bay or the CVS if we needed something.

Spring Break

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this condo from 3/9-3/16 and it was quite satisfactory and everything we were looking for. The fully equipped kitchen was great and left us with few things to bring besides food and our own personal clothing. The condo itself was great and had a very homey decor. Everything was very close by the condo which made the use of a car not needed, and the security of the whole facility made us feel very secure! The drainage in the restroom was a little slow, which was the only slight problem we ran into. Also, on the last day of our stay all of the power had went out in the whole condominium which was a little upsetting, but problems do occur with the large amount of people staying there during the spring break week. Overall this condo was a great rental for my friends and I and though I was skeptical of the foul smell I had read in other reviews I came to realize it was just a stuffy smell, and once you get in there the smell goes away. I would highly recommend this condo and rentals from Robert, he was there to answer all of our questions and concerns about our stay!

You get what you pay for

  • 2 of 5
We stayed in this condo 7/28 to 7/31. Upon entering the condo there was an unpleasant odor which never went away. The condo is updated not sure if it is for the better. The location is good and views are good. However everything else was below average. The towels and bedding were so bad we had to buy our own towels for shower, bedding for pull out couch and blankets for kids bed. I was never given check in instructions and was unaware of the need to bring my own toilet paper, trash bags, and paper towels. On the last evening the slow toilet overflowed.... And you get what you pay for....looking for inexpensive stay roll the dice here. Lastly, I have emailed owner twice in past two days about deposit no response. Safe to say I don't recommend.

Owner's Response: Unfortunately it's impossible to please everyone no matter what any commercial transaction entails. I refer all candidate renters to read the reviews from my other guests to Beautiful South Padre Island and the Aquarius who had positive responses to my Condo and desire to return. This includes responses both immediately before and after checkout of this guest. We strive to do our best and rely on the management , staff, and housekeeping folks to be prepared for all of our guests. I trust that the other reviews speak for themselves. Bob Carnahan
