Private Homes house description

Located on desirable Gulf Boulevard, this breezy Key West style beach house offers wide views of the beach from the private balcony. A porch swing and rocking chairs make it the perfect place to relax after beach time.  Beach access is directly across the street.

Inside, the house is richly finished with marble floors, granite counters, and plush, upscale furnishings.  An LCD or plasma television is in every bedroom, as well as the den.  The master bathroom has a jetted tub.  The kitchen is fully equipped.  The unit is equipped with a washer and dryer.  All linens are provided.

Conveniently located in the center of South Padre Island, it is walking distance to outdoor entertainment (great for teens), restaurants, and even the island grocery store.  Across the street is the shuttle stop for the FREE  Island shuttle (another teen favorite).

Four to six guests can sleep comfortably as shown.   Well-behaved pets are accepted with owner's approval for a small daily fee.


Provided are beach chairs, beach umbrellas, beach towels, sand toys, boogie boards, bikes, and more. Downstairs is an outdoor shower to rinse sand after beach time.

                                          Relaxing on the porch 05/22/2012

                                          VRBO Bear stayed here:


                                          We just got back from our stay at this fabulous vacation home and we feel so refreshed. Words cannot express how much fun we had and what a nice place this is.

                                          Lynn and Captain Kevin were welcoming and helpful. From the moment I arrived at the home I was amazed at how nice and clean the home was. The kitchen was fully stocked and had everything we needed for our stay. We only had to go to the store to get some groceries and we had fun cooking in the spacious and beautiful kitchen. Everything in this home is top-notch from the granite counter tops in the kitchen to the plush couches and chairs in the living room. All the décor is beautiful and up to date.

                                          Just a few steps away is the beautiful ocean. We enjoyed taking long walks on the clean and beautiful beach, collecting shells and just watching the sea. Our child enjoyed making sand castles with the provided buckets, shovels and castle making tools. Also provided were umbrellas, chairs, and bikes. I loved riding a bike up and down the street and also to the nearby café to grab a drink and snack. Another highlight of the stay was spending time on the porch swing. We could relax on the porch and watch the ocean from a distance. We were also lucky to see fireworks from the porch during the Memorial Day weekend festivities.

                                          While at the house you can curl up on one of the couches and read a book or just relax. For meal time the large, fully equipped gourmet kitchen was wonderful. Everything from durable pots and pans to spices were included. If eating out is your thing, there are many restaurants nearby. When it was time for bed, this bear thought the plush beds were "just right." There were plenty of beds to sleep all of us comfortably and 2 bathrooms, so we didn’t have to fight over shower time. The second bathroom even has a huge walk-in shower.

                                          Whether you are looking to have a relaxing getaway or a fun filled family vacation I would highly recommend this property. I could not have asked for a better vacation, and will definitely be staying at this rental again.

                                            We just returned from our 4 days at the Bouganvilla, and couldn't be more pleased with the experience. The condo was extremely cute and clean, all amenities were as billed. We had complete access to the beach "toys" (my son has become an expert skimboarder). The location is right across from the beach entrance - you can see the water from the deck. We brought our large dogs - and it was perfect. The location is also very convenient for walking to the supermarket, restaurants, shopping, and for those areas that are too far, the bus stops right in front of the home. We loved the trip - plan to do it again for a longer period of time next year! An added bonus - the restaurants in the area are very good - I'd recommend Daddy's for crayfish!

                                            Owner response: Our family and pet friendly beach house is centrally located on the island. Across the street is the beach and beach access. Our guests have free access to all the beach necessities: beach chairs, umbrellas, beach towels, boogie boards, sand toys, and more. We make sure our guests have a happy, comfortable, and memorable vacation experience! Lynn and Kevin

                                            I have stayed at many vacation rentals and the Bougainvillea is at the top of my list! Three of us stayed in this beautiful condo/apt. For 5 nights. The interior is fabulously decorated and the kitchen well stocked! Outside the condo, we enjoyed the large porch, rocking chairs and swing. We also took advantage of the huge charcoal grill. Lynn and Captain Kevin could not have been better hosts. They accommodated our every need, offered advice on restaurants and grocery supplies, but were never intrusive, and gave us lots of privacy . Staying at the Bougainvillea was more like staying at a small resort. We had all the supplies needed for our daily beach trek- chairs, umbrellas, coolers, sand toys and bikes were all provided!!! We can't wait to return SPI and the Bougainvillea!!!

                                            We really enjoyed our stay. There are a ton of things to do on or near the island, and the property/unit couldnt have been nicer. Lots of personal touches, great location. We used the bikes Lynn provided several times and the beach towels and umbrellas, all were in great condition. Kitchen was well stocked with tools and even some staples, that makes everything easier! We highly recommend this place and will return. Lynn is easy to talk with and willing to help in every way to make our stay perfect. Captain Kevin is very knowledgable and well certified. The weather was too windy while we were there to see him in action, maybe next time we can go out on the bay. We ate at Dirty Al's, Captain Roy's and Padre Brewing Co on the island, all were very good. Joe's Oyster Bar in Port Isabel was an excellent locals seafood find.

Dogs must be well-behaved "inside" dogs. We have a two-pet maximum, but occasionally make exceptions after a phone interview. We know that it is not the size of the dog, but its behaviour that matters. Both our units are thoroughly cleaned and disinfected after our people and dog guests complete their vacation. With travertine floors throughout, you will never know a pet has vacationed here before!

                                            We had a great stay. The owners live on-site, while initially hesitant about this (we had 4 kids with us that can be quite loud) it ended up not being an issue. In fact it is better to have them readily available in case you need repairs, or have questions. Captain Kevin even gave us some fresh fish he had caught. The owners are very cool and not intrusive or nosy. As I mentioned we had 4 kids with us, three teenagers and a 10 year old. We really appreciated having boogie boards, sand toys, and awesome (not cheap) Nautica beach chairs with pockets for cell phones on them at our disposal. The kids enjoyed pedaling around the roads (thanks to the bike lanes) on the bikes that are available. It is a short hike across the road to the beach. While not an issue for us, the condo is close to the road so small children need to be watched closely. The beach was not crowded due to the lack of large condos/hotels in the area. The condo looked like the on-line pictures. The tiled shower is elegant, and the kitchen is a gourmet delight. We enjoyed the outside grill, and cooked out hamburgers although there is not a large grilling area. Loved, loved, the bed and the pillows. I loved the pillows so much that I went out and bought the same Tempur-Pedic Indulgence brand. I slept so well that I was mad at myself for sleeping in so late. The only issue while not a issue for us but might be for families with small children, the condo is fairly close to the road and they would need to be watched closely. The main reason we stayed here is because we could take our small Rat Terrier dog with us. You can not find many VRBO's that allow pets at this quality and price. Thanks again. We will be back.

                                            Owner response: My beach house is located on desirable Gulf Boulevard, the street closest to the beach. The beach and beach access is directly across the street from the house. Gulf Boulevard is a two-lane 30 mph zone, as are most the streets on the Island. A gate is installed at the top of the balcony stairs, so you can enjoy the view and relax. Naturally, Gulf Boulevard will have more traffic during peak times. Being so close to the beach, we encourage our guests with small children to carefully watch their children, especially when crossing the street. We are Island locals, and live in the downstairs portion of the house. We are conveniently available if you need us or have questions about the Island. Otherwise you will not see much of us after you arrive and are comfortably settled. We take very good care of our guests!

                                            It's been several years since my family and I have taken an actual vacation and this was the perfect place. It has everything you need besides your clothes and you, even down to shampoo, soap and detergent. The ad says fully furnished and stocked and it is. There were body boards, chairs, beach towels and umbrellas for use on the beach, a fully stocked kitchen will all the dishes, pots, pans and silverware you need and awesome rockers and porch swings for late evenings on the balcony with the great ocean breeze. Captain Kevin even took my brother out for a day of fishing and he had a wonderful time. Kevin and Lynn are great and I'd recommend this as a great place for any family to visit!

                                            Very nice property and perfect for our little family getaway. Had all the amenities we needed including beach toys and bbq supplies. Our dog loved relaxing out on the patio watching the runners/walkers pass by (our unit had a large wrap around patio that was gated). Owners were very nice and provided lots of information in regards to the local businesses in the area. Will make a point to come here again and definitely stay at the Bougainvillea. Well worth the drive from Dallas.

                                            The South unit was nicer and cleaner than any unit we have stayed in over the years. It was complete with everything we needed to live comfortably for two weeks. We just had to buy food and drink. If you wanted to cook, it had all of the equipment, from utensils, crock pot, pans, toaster oven, coffee pot, cutting board, knives, mixing bowls, to all of the major appliances. It also had extra pillows and blankets, 6 or 7 plush beach towels to use, nicely updated bathrooms with nice towels. They had top of the line grill, beach chairs, 3 bikes, several body boards, and lots of beach toys at our disposal. Our favorite part was the porch which was shaded every afternoon with two rockers and a swing with room for several more chairs. Thank you Lynn and Captain Kevin! Your place is top notch. By the way, Lynn showed me the North unit while we were there, and it was even nicer and bigger, an even better place especially if you plan on entertaining a lot.
