Perfect location to all activities. The beach right outside your back door. the condo was the perfect size for a family. Kids said it is one of our best vacations ever. Huge shout out to Ginny !!!!!!! Everything she said and presented was beyond my expectations. Ginny made contact before we arrived and made sure everything was taken care of during our stay. Seamless check in and great condo. We hated to leave. Thank you Ginny for a great experience.
Condo was really pretty and right on the beach.very convenient to get to the beach. Several things though. Air conditioner took over 24 hrs to cool the condo. The first night was hot in the condo. The air conditioner ran non stop and it never got cool.it finally cooled off by the end of the first full day we were there. Air filter needs changed and air conditioner needs serviced. The pots and pans need to be replaced in the kitchen. They were in sorry shape to cook with. The remote control for tv in the front room did not work. Probably needs new batteries. For the amt of money to rent the condo would be nice to have everything in good working order.
My husband and I spent 3 nights in this 2nd floor condo and really liked the interior of this unit and the special upgrades they have done recently. It has very comfortable furniture and beds. All of the bed linens and towels were high quality as well. We especially liked the code system on all gates and this particular unit for entry. Keeps you from worrying about losing keys. The view of the Gulf and dunes covered with native Texas fauna was breathtaking.
Things we already knew going into this rental were
1. The fact that there was not a dishwasher (not a problem for us),
2. No elevator (also not a problem...but pack light),
3.The pool was on the street side instead of the gulf side (turned out to be an issue for us because the pool was enclosed by fences and the Texas west-side sun beat down on the pool and chairs every afternoon. No shade at all.)
The thing we were most disappointed with was the furniture on the patio/balcony. We like to sit and have drinks and sometimes play cards while enjoying the gulf view and sound of the waves and the lack of a small dining set prevented the card playing and dining outside. I set my big stainless yeti water bottle on this little pitiful side table which immediately collapsed and spilled my water everywhere. Thank goodness it wasn't a glass with my rum and diet coke in it (LOL) or a coffee mug with my rum and diet coke in it as well! There were 2 plastic adirondack chairs that were comfy but there was room for a little dinette set and a better side table.
The location was fantastic though, so over all I would recommend this place based on that and the parking lot you can use in front of the building. If the pool isn't one of the more important items on your list it could be a good low to medium budget option.
My husband and I spent 10 days on South Padre Island the end of January. The condo, located in a 3 story condominium building, was directly on the beach. Our condo was comfortable, very clean and decorated nicely in an island theme. Ginny was great to work with. When we arrived, the wifi was not working. Ginny was promptly on the phone to AT&T. It took a couple of days to get a technician but she upgraded the wifi system and it worked great. We enjoyed having keyless entry for the front gate and the condo. It was nice to have off street parking for the condominium building located directly across the street. From our front door, we could look directly west down the side street and see the bay. From our balcony, we looked directly onto the ocean. The king bed was very comfortable. We did not use the second bedroom except for suitcases. The January weather didn't cooperate as much as we liked - very windy and somewhat chilly - so we spent more time in the condo than we had planned. The only downside was the sofa sleeper couch which needs new cushions and squeaked whenever you sat or moved around and we could have used more places to hang up clothes. Be aware that there isn't a washer/dryer in the unit. There are facilities in the condominium building itself that cost to use - bring quarters. There also isn't a dishwasher in the unit - no big deal for just 2 of us. All in all we enjoyed our time and the condo. It was a great getaway and break from the cold and snow for a short while.
This condo was perfect for my family of four! Beautifully decorated, equipped with everything you need for a vacation! Great location on the island & the walk to the beach is short.!! The pool is small but it's good enough to get refreshed! We enjoyed our stay there!!
This condo is perfectly situated on the beach. My family of 5 just completed a 3 night stay.The living area and master bedroom have a excellent view of the dunes and the ocean beyond, you can hear the waves as they crash to shore. The condo has been recently remodeled it seems and the owner has given it a tasteful beach vibe with comfortable furnishings. The beds were excellent- and with a king and two queens everyone slept blissfully after long days of play on the beach. The linens were nice. The showers had excellent water pressure and were plenty hot. The owner has provided beach toys/floats and boogie boards which is always thoughtful. Each bedroom and living area had TV, which is helpful when travelling with children. The kitchen had all pots, pans needed to make a meal and a spice cabinet filled with the basics to aide in cooking them. We spent our mornings and evenings on the balcony and beach enjoying the surf and sand. Water was clear, beach was pristine. The pool was a plus as it was somewhat shaded through the hottest part of the day.

This condo was amazing! We were just a short walk from the beach and the views were spectacular! It was very roomy and accommodated my husband and I and three teenagers perfectly. Ginny was very attentive to our every need and went above and beyond to ensure that we were happy. We loved this condo and would highly recommend it. We would definitely rent from Ginny again!
