ReviewsWrite a review
My husband and I stayed at this property for the month of March. It was wonderful and exceeded our expectations. The place is very spacious with extemely high end and comfortable furnishings. We had wonderful sunny warm weather and swam in the large private pool everyday. The front porches were great for people watching. We spent a lot of time in the late afternoon and evening on the back porch watching the sun set over the ocean with the palm trees gently swaying. The owners were great to deal with. The location is excellent. A quiet residental neighbourhood but within an easy walk to the beach, close to restaurants and all the action. We were there during Texas spring break which is crazy but at the Banada Cabana it was wonderfully relaxing. We would definetly stay here again and would highly recommend it to others.

We took our 4 adult children and 2 yr old grandson to the Banana Cabana and had a wonderful time! The house is beautiful and very well equipped. The owner was wonderful to work with. We'd had a bad experience last year with a VRBO property and were a bit aprehensive about trying it again but this was a wonderful experience. We were all talking about coming back next year before we left. I highly recommend this home for families.

We stayed at the Banana Cabana June 18th-23rd 2011. The house was perfect, the pictures online did not do it justice, it is beautiful. I cannot think of anything you might need that the house does not offer except, if have a small child will want a baby gate for the top of the stairs we went to Walmart and purchased one. Everything is close by, can walk to beach if taking a lot of items, I would recommend driving the short distance. We fished and crabbed at the end of the street (about 1BLK) caught a 28" red fish, about 40 crabs , a sting ray and lots of unwanted seed weed :) Our kids loved going to see the sea turtles. If going deep sea fishing I would recommend taking something for motion sickness the swells were about 8'- 10' and our men got really sick but did bring back big fish. In short it is well worth the price to stay at this home. My Thanks to Toni and Mattie for being very helpful and nice. We will be back Pam

We had a wonderful time at the Banana Cabana, a perfect place for a family holiday with lots of room for everyone, a quiet neighborhood - yet central enough to walk to everything you need (including gelato!). The owners truly have thought of everything to make one's stay comfortable. Thank you! This was our first visit, but we'll be back!

Guest comment entered by owner
"It was absolutely perfect! The beds were comfy beyond belief, the pool and patio were great. The grill worked perfectly, etc.; we truly enjoyed ourselves over the holiday weekend. The only comment I have is you need a toaster to toast bed, bagles, etc., as we could not find one. (The only constructive criticism we could muster!)We truly appreciate your allowing us to share your lovely vacation home. We will recommend it to anyone, and please feel free to use us as a reference." (NOTE: A toaster/broiler oven and pop-up toaster were immediately placed in the house.)

Year Purchased: 2005
About the owner: My husband and I have lived overseas 17 years (We have spent the last year in Houston.), and we are now headed off again...this time to Stavanger, Norway. We bought the Banana Cabana to serve as our home away from home when we visited and fell in love with South Padre Island in 2005. When I am not using the home myself, we occasionally rent the house to select clientele who, we feel, will take care of and respect our property.
Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
Since the Banana Cabana has been my home away from home for years, it is extremely well stocked -- much more than most rentals you will ever come across. When I am staying there, I entertain friends often, so you will find extras such as two - not one - mixers (stand & hand), large griddle for pancakes, etc., 20+ pieces of brightly-colored cast-iron outdoor furniture, new gas grill and conventional BBQ grill, Cuisinart Food Processor, Blender...see the full list on the details page.
