Description of the South Padre Island vacation condo rental
Newly decorated in a tropical decor, this beachfront condo is located on the topmost 6th floor of an intimate, gated-condominium with full amenities, and sits directly on the beach facing the Gulf of Mexico. The land immediately to the north and south of the condo is less developed, so that there is a feeling of great space. It has on occasion been called a family oasis.
This 2 bedroom 2 bath retreat has panoramic views from every great room window of the beach and Gulf of Mexico, and from the adjoining full-width private balcony. Again, just steps away, out of your front door is a magnificent view of the palm tree lined South Padre Island, the Laguna Madre Bay, and the 2.4 mile long Queen Isabella Causeway which connects the island to the Texas mainland. Wake to the morning sunrise over the Gulf as it spills into your living room. Step out of your front door for the best seat in the house viewing the evening sun setting into the Laguna Madre Bay. Also out your front door, 9:15 sharp watch the nightly fireworks display slip gracefully from the sky. Fireworks displays are provided Memorial Day Weekend, Fourth of July, Labor Day Weekend, every Friday night mid-May through Labor Day, and New Year's Eve!
The unit interior has been professionally decorated in a warm tropical decor and has white ceramic tile throughout. It has a large great room with a modern, well equipped kitchen fully stocked with plates, glassware, utensils, and appliances.
The large master bedroom has a king-size bed. The adjoining master bathroom features a luxurious, large, custom built, fully-tiled shower. The second bedroom has two double beds, an adjoining full bath, and a walk-in closet leading to a fully equipped laundry room.
The great-room includes a pull-out couch that can sleep 2 and a TV with DVD/VCR.
The balcony is equipped with 2 comfortable rocking chairs, and a cocktail table and chairs for prime gulf vista viewing and relaxation.
City fathers do an excellent job of providing wide, landscaped, well-patrolled boulevards, groomed and patrolled beaches, regular shuttle bus service around the island and to our local Brownsville airport, and nature and convention centers.

Reviews for this vacation condo rental in South Padre Island, Texas
June 5, 2014
My family & I had the opportunity to stay here May 27th thru May 29th. Everything about this condo was top notch especially the view! It truly felt like we were at home. Being able to watch the sun rise while cooking breakfast was truly breathtaking. We hated to leave but we didn't want to not share this with other people. A million thanks to the Sonders for letting us stay & we're looking forward to booking our trip for next year!
There is an amazing amount of work in managing our condo-with client support and correspondence, record keeping, cleaning (and more cleaning), maintenance, web updates, association dues, utilities, mortgage, insurance policies, city tax payments, state tax payments...you get the idea. But it’s all worth while when we hear that our guests have had a wonderful time. We can’t wait to have you back, Paul! Sincerely, The Sonders’s

Vacation with a View
May 21, 2014
I booked this condo for 3 nights and 4 days. It was perfect for our family vacation. We have two children ages 10 and 15. The grounds are well maintained and the beach access was really convenient. Having the kitchen with all the needed utensils saved us a ton since we were able to prepare and enjoy meals in the condo. There are family games and beach toys available for use and we played a couple of games of Sorry! that are memorable. We all enjoyed the rocking chairs and patio area to watch the sun rise and enjoy the scenic view of the beach. My son spent a couple of hours watching cargo ships that were coming in as well as some coast guard cutters and planes. I would recommend bringing a pair of binoculars with you if you enjoy these activities. The pool and hot tub were great and enjoyable as well. While on the island we enjoyed great food, horse back riding, wind surfing, and live music for dancing as well as the Sea Turtle Rescue Center. Martin thank you for your clear communications and attentiveness. We truly enjoyed staying in your condo. We will truly miss the island experience we had and look forward to coming back again!
Jane, we are so glad you had a wonderful time. We strive to make our guests' experience easy, convenient, pleasurable, and memorable. Hearing that it was those things for you helps us know we are on the right track. Thanks for staying with us and we look forward to seeing you again soon!

My two sisters and I stayed at the condo and just loved it. It was very spacious and had everything you could possibly need or want. The balcony is quite large and the view is priceless. There is a guest/comment book that was helpful for us in deciding what to do and where to eat. The decor is really fun, with lots of beach decorations which added to the vacation feel. There is a laundry room with washer/dryer, 3 tvs, stereo, movies, games, books, and beach supplies. The owner called the day after we arrived to make sure everything was okay. We only stayed two nights, but would have been very comfortable for a longer vacation. Too much fun!!
Thanks so much, Laura, for your very wonderful review. The view off the balcony is amazing. Makes you want to take the experience and carry it around with you, doesn't it? As for the condo itself, we wanted to tastefully carry the beach theme inside.
My wife and I like comfortable, well-designed, attractive, and very clean surroundings, and that's what we have tried to create for our guests.
Our intent is to make your stay terrific!

Awesome beach condo
August 21, 2013
We had an excellent time at the condo - it had great access to the beach and the kids loved the pool. The condo was nicely furnished and stocked with just about everything we needed. The grounds were well maintained and offered a very relaxing environment. The views were also amazing - watching the sunrise from the balcony was beautiful. I would recommend this condo to anyone - especially families. Having a separate room and bathroom for the kids was wonderful! It was also nicely located, with restaurants within walking distance. Overall a great place to stay - thank you!!
Thank you, Wendy, for your wonderful, detailed comments! We are so glad you had a great time! We know the view you are speaking of and love it too. That is exactly what we were looking for when we purchased the place - being close enough to the water to see and hear the surf. Then we worked hard to bring the comfort and appeal of the condo interior to a level that would promote relaxation and enjoyment.

Great Condo for Two Couples
April 14, 2013
The condo was great! We loved the decor and everything was in working order. The view from the balcony was outstanding and the floor plan worked really well for two couples. We enjoyed reading all the notes from previous renters and added our own before leaving. The weather could have cooperated a little more but we didn't let that stop us. Just didn't spend as much beach time as we wanted. However, we went fishing, hoseback riding, grilled fresh fish for dinner, and really loved the Turtle Rescue Center. The owners were super and offered their assistance if we needed anything. Can't wait to return if we are in this area again.
Awesome Property, Awesome People

The condo was just as nice as the photos, even better because all the places you couldn't see in the photos were just as clean and well maintained. The property managers were really nice, caring people, too. Great place to stay!!
Thanks Leanne! We love to have nice people stay in our Gulf beechfront condo. We just finished one week putting in new fixtures, adding new flatscreen TVs In the bedrooms and doing everything we could make our guests' stay wonderful. I'm glad you enjoyed it. Come back and see us again soon!

Quiet building, loved the balcony. Would come again!!!
Thanks Janice! Quality and service are very important to us, as are candid comments from our guests. It's very important for us to have detailed feedback so that we can keep the very best possible beach front experience for our future guests. We request that that our clients take our cell number with them so they can contact us immediately if anything isn't just perfect.

Our week at South Padre could not have been better! The condo was perfect, we had everything we needed. We woke up sitting on the balcony watching the sunrise over the ocean, talking to our grandkids about how God knows every grain of sand, and ended the week with the fireworks display. Thank you for portraying the condo as it was- excellent!

Well appointed, comfortable, gulf front condo.
May 4, 2012
The unit is quite lovely and both bedrooms are large enough to quailify as "masters". One has a king size bed, the other 2 double beds. There are 2 full baths, every appliace imaginable, and a washer/dryer in the unit. That was a great plus for laundering beach towels, etc. The view is magnificent from the deck of the unit. The furnishings and color scheme are well coordinated and appropriate. My only criticism is that althugh the window shutters are charming, they do a poor job of filtering out light. I had to rig up some type of covering because the outside lighting was disturbing to my sleep. I would suggest blinds or shades behind the window shutters in the bedrooms. One evening, there was some sort of mechanical disruption on the roof that made sleep impossible. It was deafening. However, the next morning the work crew was there and the problem solved. I would stay here again and may do so if it is available next autumn when I plan to return to SPI.
Eileen, thanks so much for your wonderful review, and for the suggestion about the blinds. We are going to the unit in January and will install blinds at that time. When you book your next trip, email me and I'll send you a gift card for a dinner on me. Sorry about the noisy night. I'm glad it was repaired the next day. Maintenance usually does a great job.
