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.

                              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.
