About the property

2 Bedroom, 2.5 Bathroom (Sleeps 5), within 10 yards of the water!

This beautiful condo will make your dream vacation on South Padre Island. Stunning views of the Laguna Madre from all rooms and the large outdoor deck. Private boat slip included, reserved car parking space, and access to the lovely condo association (shared) swimming pool. Lush tropical landscaping and grass all around the complex. Large shared fishing dock with evening spot lights (to attract the fish) and a fish cleaning table. This condo has the best views on the island for sunsets and for Friday night fireworks. Comfortably sleeps five people. Three flat screen TVs, stereo system (includes speakers on the deck), and high speed WiFi Internet.

While this is a new property rental listing with no renter reviews yet, we previously sold another rental property which had over 50 'rave' reviews and even more very happy former and repeat renters. We believe strongly in taking care of our condo and taking care of our guests!

About Peter & Robin

This condo has been our exclusive home away from home for the last six years, and we are just starting to rent it part time, beginning in the spring 2013. We love South Padre Island and plan to retire there. The above photo is our family, celebrating the release of an Atlantic Green turtle that we rescued from being snagged in a crab trap. We brought the turtle to Sea Turtle, Inc. (a non-profit sea turtle rescue & rehabilitation center on South Padre Island), and after a few months in their care... we released the turtle again to where we rescued it originally in the Laguna Madre. See http://www.seaturtleinc.org/ and visit them when you come to South Padre Island!

Peter & Robin purchased this condo in 2007

Why Peter & Robin chose Texas Gulf Coast

Our first condo on South Padre Island was on the Gulf side, but after falling in love with the Western exposure to the Laguna Madre, including the incredible sunsets and summertime fireworks... we soon found this condo and sold the other one. This condo 'IS IT' for us, and we are sure you will love it, too.

What makes this condo unique

Check out the second photo, taken from a boat on the Laguna Madre, of our condo unit. This will hopefully help you get a feel for the views you're going to be enjoying.

Note that this condo includes both the 2nd and 3rd floors of the building, as outlined with the labeled box in the photo. A couple of features make this condo unit unique:

-The deck is huge, over the entire width of the condo (something like 30+ ft), and about 8-10 ft deep. It is a viewing paradise for water, birds, sunsets, etc. (including the best seat on the island for the city fireworks, every Friday night from Memorial Day to Labor Day, plus July 4th and New Year's Eve)

-The four windows you see on South West corner of the 2nd floor of the condo (3rd floor of the building) are all in the master bedroom. Nearly 180 degrees of water... a wonderful view to start each day of your vacation on South Padre Island!

- There is a bar area adjacent to the dining area, with a second small refrigerator and a large capacity ice maker.

- The master bathroom has a two person Jacuzzi tub (jetted tub), in addition to a separate shower stall.

Amazing Family Get Away at South Padre - can't wait to go back!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this condo for our first trip to Padre and couldn't have had a more incredible time. First and foremost, the condo is magnificent. Panoramic views of Laguna Madre from the master bedroom, downstairs, and the wrap-around outside lanai...simply breath-taking! The decorations and accomodations really make you feel like you're in a 5-star hotel. The condo pool is perfect for lounging and having fun with the kiddos. My son and I really enjoyed "night fishing" on the private dock, turning on the green spotlights and catching some green perch and sea trout. The condo provided absolutely everything you need: amazing in and outside stereo, DVD players and TVs in every room, beach chairs/umbrellas/sand castle gear, clean towels and linens, plenty of dishes/silverware/glasses, fishing poles, bottle/wine openers, life jackets, washer/dryer, margarita mixer (amazing right!), and Weber Grill and equipment. The neighbors were extremely friendly and the condo was in a safe, quiet area off the main street. It was literally only 4-5 blocks drive to get to the ocean side of the island for beach days. There are 22 beach access points clearly marked to park and unload your gear, and after you're done at the beach, you'll be at your home-away-from-home in under 5 minutes. There were grocery stores only blocks away, and some very fun restaurants for every palate (even with a 3 and 6-yr-old.) We actually spent a majority of the time cooking in the condo because you just can't beat a delicious breakfast overlooking the laguna, or a grilled seafood dinner watching the sunset. This was an incredible family vacation that we needed: relaxing, beautiful, and stress-free. The owners were so helpful and checked in on us to make sure we had a perfect stay, and the property managers were very accessible and helpful when we needed something. We cannot wait to come back in the future for another family vacation at this incredible condo in SPI!

Great views, great location and modern clean condo

  • 5 of 5

Our first trip to S. Padre Island and instead of booking a hotel we decided to go for a condo with a view. This place was awesome, the views from inside and outside the house are incredible. Every night we relaxed on the balcony and enjoyed perfect sunset views over the bay. The condo had all the amenities needed with a modern clean look. The condo is withing walking distance of several restaurants and a grocery store. Great place, we will be back.

Wonderful Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Very nice and well maintained Condo. This was more than expected. This is a newer condo and the location and views of sunsets were exceptional. The location was a short walk for almost all of our needs.

As advertised and more!

  • 5 of 5

Quick weekend getaway that was better than expected. Owner was very helpful and available. The apartment was clean and spacious. Location was great. If you are looking to stay on the bay side, this is it! We parked our party boat on the assigned boat slip and had a great weekend. The balcony was perfect. We had breakfast on the balcony overlooking the bay.....gorgeous! The building itself was very quiet, safe and peaceful. I will definitely try to stay there again.

Wonderful property!!! The property was exactly as described and then some!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I travel extensively for work, so we were looking for a weekend getaway to relax and bring in the New Year. We found it in this condo! All the amenities were provided and then some! Anything we may need for our stay was available. The furnishings and decorations were beautiful and the home was very clean. The owners checked on us to make sure all was well and made themselves available if we needed anything. We were told that the fireworks from the deck would be fantastic and they were over the top!! We also enjoyed watching dolphins, pelicans and fishing from the dock. I would stay here again and would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for upscale, easy access, cleanliness and a wonderful spot to relax! Thank you for a great weekend!!
