Property description

This very family friendly condominium is located in the high restricted Padre Isles Community. This large unit is located entirely on the second floor of a two story complex with only 4 units. This property is located on a large canal 'lake' with the closest neighbor behind the unit approximately 100 yards away. The intercoastal waterway is a short boat ride away as are the little known Padre Isle 'ski canals' which offer an excellent water sports area.

The unit consists of a large master suite with separate bathroom that includes his and hers vanities and a separate shower and jetted bathtub. The master bedroom also has a 25 inch LCD HD TV. There are two other bedrooms with queen beds. There is a very large bedroom which is over the bottom unit's garage which is outfitted with a bunkbed, two single beds and a large corner sofa. There are also foam mattresses that can be used for 'overflow' sleeping. This room has it's own TV/DVD to allow the kids there own area to enjoy.

The living room has a great south view of the canal lake where dolphins and pelicans are seen regularly. The living room has a large VERY comfortable corner sofa and a 25 inch LCD TV and DVD player.

The dining room has a large table with 6 chairs.

The kitchen is well equipped with two full sets of dishes as well as most utensils, cooking and serving dishes needed. This is NOT the usual stripped down kitchen you will find in most rentals!!

There is a fishing pier with an underwater green light for night fishing and a very nice elevated deck with furniture that over looks the canal lake. The kids can swim off the deck as the water is usually at least 6 feet deep at the end of the dock. Please be careful and ALWAYS watch the kids while swimming. Please no jumping off the decks.

There is a very nice boat launch about 50 yards away and you are welcome to dock your boat in the slips.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: My name is Van Swift, My family lives in Austin and have owned a vacation home in the Corpus Christi area for many years. We looked around for a long time before deciding to purchase this unit. We really like the location of this home due to it's proximity to great fishing, great beaches and many great restaurants.

Why the Owner Chose North Padre Island:
This condominium is really like a large two story duplex. Your parking location is just steps to the front door, not like the larger hotel like condominiums in the area. This unit is very easy to find and is a short boat ride to the Laguna Madre or a short car ride to Whitecap Beach which is very family friendly and patrolled by the Nueces County Sheriff and Corpus Christi PD. You can park your vehicle close to the water which is not possible on most of the beaches in Port Aransas. Most of the popular restaurant and stores are located on South Padre Island Drive which is just down the road. Corpus Christi is a very easy drive from Austin or San Antonio and you won't have to wait in a long ferry line when arriving or departing like you do in Port Aransas.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
This unit is over 1,672 sq. ft. all on the second floor on the complex with no neighbors above you! This unit is ideal for two or three families to enjoy as the kids can share a large bedroom with their own TV/DVD so the adults can enjoy the deck or living room in the evening in peace. This unit faces south so the deck, balcony and fishing pier all have nice shade in the afternoon. This unit was built in 1999 and was a builder owned unit so it has a lot of nice upgrades such as extensive crown molding and intercom system.
