Awesome 2 Bedroom - Half Block from the Beach- Swimming pool - Wifi


Property Details

Updated: Aug 13, 2016
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 scree 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.

Amazing! Spotless! Great location!

  • 5 of 5

The property was professionally cleaned, smelled great, and was spotless. The owner was very professional and friendly. He was also always available by call or text for any questions that came up. The only thing I didn't realize is that this property only has a shower and no tub. I have a one year old so this made it difficult but not impossible to take him a bath. So if you have a little one this is good to know. Other then that I would definitely recommend this place to friends and family. If I plan on going to SPI again I would re-book this place as it met all of my expectations. You are in walking distance to the beach and you have a great view of the fireworks.

The house was clean and the short walk (3-4 minutes) to the beach was very easy with a 3 and 9 yr old, cooler, and beach chairs in tow. On the days when everyone had enough sand and surf the pool area provided a great escape. The pool area is shared with the occupants of the connecting unit but there was never a problem of it being overcrowded like I've experienced at hotels. We had a great stay at Casa Melbac and we can't wait to return. Roberto has put a lot of effort and thought into the property and it shows. He was very accessible and went above my expectations. Keep up the good work!

Great property!

  • 5 of 5

The property was great, close to the beach and close to entertainment. Nice pool and pergola in the back yard to help escape the heat! Bedrooms were good size. This place had everything we needed for a week vacation. We will definitely be back to stay at this place again!

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.

From the Owner

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.
