**COVID-19 info**

Alongside everywhere else, South Padre Island was closed to visitors for over a month as a result of the COVID-19 outbreak.

Recently, the Island reopened and is transitioning back to life. Of course, it’s too early to tell how everything will unfold but our condo still has bookings and prospective guests have expressed interest in getting away to destinations closer to home and traveling by car.

Therefore, we are sharing several important details about the steps we are taking and the overall community in case it is useful.

First, we have ALWAYS maintained high cleaning standards:

- Cleaning crews use masks and gloves

- Linens and towels are washed with bleach

- Surfaces, switches, knobs, and high-touch areas disinfected with Lysol products registered with the EPA on list N.

We monitor recommendations from the CDC and other relevant sources and our cleaning best practices will continue to improve as needed.

Second, since the outbreak, we have adopted several new procedures:

- From time-to-time, depending on the schedule, check-in time may be delayed from 3 pm to 4 pm to ensure thorough cleaning. We apologize in advance!

- Stays of five nights or longer will be prioritized during busiest seasons to minimize the total number of people transiting the condo

Third, you might find the following information useful:

- The Waves is a smaller complex with only eight condos, and all condos restricted to a maximum of six guests

- Our unit has a fully equipped kitchen, which means that you can prepare your own meals or enjoy take-out

- Beaches are currently open with certain restrictions (masks when not swimming, group size limits, contact sports, etc.). Rules will likely continue to evolve.

- Many restaurants are open with limited seating capacity or take-out/delivery only

- We recommend that you refer to information published by the City of South Padre Island for the most recent community, county, and state information.

Finally, this is an extremely challenging time for everyone. We hope that you will always remember Unit 5 at the Waves as your home away from home.

“Home away from home”

Reviewed 19 Sep 2016

My daughter, mom and I came down for a girls weekend and we weren't disappointed. The condo was clean and comfortable. I would definitely return!

“Great Summer Getaway!”

We have been blessed to stay at Dan's condo (Waves #5) for the past few years. I believe this is our 3rd year in a row! We look forward to this trip all year and the kids just love coming to South Padre Island. Dan's place, our second home, is just that...a perfect get away with the absolute best accommodations. We always arrive from a 11-12 hour trip and say, "We are home!" The condo location is walking distance to the beach, short drive to all the restaurants, and fun spots on the island (putt putt golf, go carts, sky coasters, etc.) The condo is clean, spacious, and quiet. Every year we are amazed at the families we meet on the condo unit. Everyone is very thankful to be staying in the condo and absolutely enjoy the time. The condo also has a small pool which is just perfect after a long day at the beach. Our children boy (10) and girl (4) love sharing their own room and are so comfortable in the beds. Overall, 5 Star Rating! We absolutely love Dan, RJ (contact on the island), and this condo. We will be back!

The place was great! More than enough for my friends and I! The location was great and directly in between everything, and the area surrounding us was relaxing. My group was overall super thankful we had the opportunity to stay at the apartment!

“Great stay”

Reviewed 12 May 2016

Loved the condo! Had everything we wanted - first floor, 2 bedrooms/baths, nice kitchen, washer/dryer, and accepted pets! Will definitely book again!

“Beautiful Condo! Can't wait to go back!”

Reviewed 10 May 2016

My husband and I stayed here for a weekend getaway. We've stayed at a lot a of vacation condos and this house is definitely ranked at the top of our list. The condo was absolutely beautiful and it was supplied with everything we needed for the weekend. The condo was in a prime location as it was only a short walk from the beach and from local shops. Daniel, the owner, was incredibly hospitable and easy to work with. I would highly recommend this condo and my husband and I look forward to staying again sometime.
