“Awesome stay”

I just rented # 311 me and my family had a nice stay, the view of schliterbahn and the beach was nice. The condo was well maintained and the rental company was very helpful.The name of the rental company was south padre rentals, located on kingfish street.

I don't remember the room number but the hotel was amazing. Amazing view of the beach from the balcony, walking distance to the beach with showers to wash off the sand. If you don't feel like swimming in the ocean there are 2 pools(1 with a bar) Oh I can't forget about the tennis courts.

Rented 405 for me and my husband for 6 days. It's perfect size for a couple. It was very clean and walking distance from beach. The guy we rented from was so helpful and very kind . He emailed us a list of things to do and great places to eat. I definitely recommend this place !!! Great price!!

We booked unit 108 thru rentsouthpadreisland.com. The condo had everything from a well stock kitchen to beach toys and reading material. Dan sent us all the information via email and was able to accommodate an extra day, so my husband would not spend Father's Day on the road. Would highly recommend!!!!

Room Tip: if you have small children this room is perfect because is on the first floor and will not disturb...

We happened upon this place after many trial and errors through other places to find a rental. My boyfriend found it on www.rentsouthpadreisland.com and he said the guy was great to work with. We were excited to have found the place and excited for some sun and a relaxing time.

Unfortunately, this place did seem more like a hotel, it did not feel homey at all. The beds were SUPER uncomfortable. There were no working lights, we had to eat dinner on stools one night huddled underneath the oven lamp....not romantic at all....

We were told we would have a water view, UH NO....there was NO water view, this was a parking lot view. There were NO extras, no chairs towels, etc. We had to buy EVERYTHING, it just seemed so stale and boring. We would not stay again and wish we had looked into it a little bit more. Beach access was easy but there was LOTS of construction beneath us and at Shlitterbahn so it was just frustrating. I'm easy going as is my boyfriend but this was just not a match made

We stayed at Gulfview II, condo 110 for 5 nights. This was a change in plans from Alabama to SPI due to hurricane Isaac. Due to the short notice in making the reservation, there were a few bumps along the way in payment process because of Paypal which was handled very professionally, courteously, and finally resolved!!
The condo itself is well maintained, was clean with a kitchenette much larger than I had expected. The pool is huge!!
Bonuses to the rental was a full size frig, paperback books if desired, a selection of movies and beach chairs and umbrella for use on the beach.
The beach is just a short distance away. The only negative is one of our beach towels was stolen off the balcony which may be due to all the construction next door for the sclitterban.
We loved our time there and would definitely stay again.
