“The Beach House You Wish You Owned”
Reviewed August 3, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

I've stayed in 10 different South Padre Rentals in as many years and this is my new favorite. The only thing that gave me pause when considering it was the single bathroom. And I can now tell you that even with 3 teenagers that was never an issue. The kitchen is well-stocked and just right for assembling beach lunches or setting out a breakfast buffet. The living room couches are seriously comfortable. The second bedroom is great for accommodating big or small kids and you feel tucked away and comfortable in the master bedroom (which has a cable TV of its own). AC works great. The private pool is a huge plus and the location is excellent. Wanna Wanna Beach Grill--the best shrimp baskets, people watching and turbo pina coladas on the island--is in walking distance. And here's the thing: if something isn't working right or you have an issue, you will get a response from the owner immediately. That is not the case with many properties, I can assure you. Also, being able to arrive and walk right into the house and not go through a property management waiting line: What are you hesitating for? Rent this house.

“Cramped but fine - needs maintenance”
Reviewed July 14, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

My family which includes 4 children ages 9-22 stayed for 2 weeks from 6/27-7/11. It looked really nice from the photos but upon arrival we discovered that the pool furniture was falling apart, the fridge was not cooling adequately, the bathroom door was coming apart (and has comments regarding plumbing issues written in red in the door facing) and the roaches were out of control (including climbing into the beds) and could be seen coming in under the front door and door to the garage. Fortunately most maintenance issues were dealt with promptly and we had a good time. It's very close to the beach and the kids really enjoyed the pool. While it's advertised as accommodating 6 people, I wouldn't recommend it to a group that large - 6 people can't even sit together in the living room.

“Nice stay in a great location!”

We rented this property after looking at several other options. The location was GREAT! It was within close walking distance to the beach and a well stocked convenience store. The pool was really nice for relaxing after a day at the beach. The rental had a small well equipped kitchen and a comfortable living room. The rooms were just the right size for our family of four. Would definitely book this rental again!

“Nice little unit!”

We enjoyed this property very much. The kitchen, bathroom, and laundry room are small, but the unit as a whole is nice and functional. The private pool was extremely nice, especially with the bad weather we had preventing us from spending more time at the beach. Our two girls (9 and 6 years old) kept finding frogs in the pool, and trying to "save" them. They got a ball and snorkeling gear and had a really great time in that pool. We had an accident in the bathroom. The shower curtain rod was loose at our arrival and our 6 year old went in for her bath first. As she pulled the curtain open, the rod fell down on her nose, giving her a cut. My husband tried to tighten it, and we didn't have any more problems with it falling on us, but it remained a bit loose. Also, the rail for the top bunk of the bunk bed was loose. The other problem that we had was with the Wi-Fi, we had a hard time getting signal and kept getting disconnected. Other than that, everything was clean and working properly, and the unit was stocked with the basics to have a great time in the island. Patsy, the property owner, responded our messages promptly and was flexible and helpful at all times. I really liked the easiness of the check-in and check-out processes, right at the property. Thank you! Even with the bad weather and the biker fest going on, our weekend in South Padre was relaxed and fun!

The booking of this property was very easy and the owners replied back very quickly with answers I had to any questions before booking. My family and I (husband and 3 older teenagers) stayed for an entire week. It is stocked with everything you can think of , including washer and dryer. The master bed was super comfy! Air conditioning was nice and cold for those hot humid days. The pool was very nice to relax and enjoy at our leisure. I had a few questions early on in our stay and again they replied very quickly with answers. Would definitely recommend this property to anyone! Big thanks to the Moreno's for making our summer vacation easy and comfortable!

The Beachnut was the perfect place to relax after a visit to the beach, site seeing or any of the other activities we enjoyed. The beach is only a half block (walking distance) from the house. The swimming pool was a true asset but it is geared more for young children since it isn't very deep. However, we did float and play quite a bit in it and the lush surroundings were hypnotic. The bed was very comfortable and there were plenty of blankets to curl up with in the evening on the sofa's. The only draw back was that the kitchen is fairly small. It is definitely for only one person to use at a time, but other than that we managed just fine. I would definitely recommend this place to others!
