Other South Padre Island Properties house description

Very nice one bedroom downstairs flat that oozes Island relaxation. Come in your own private entrance and begin enjoying your Island retreat. Living and kitchen area is all open and large, which is great for entertaining. Private deck in the fenced backyard for your morning coffee or evening drinks. The large bedroom has a great closet and built-in dresser with vanity area too. The bathroom area includes tub with shower and your own stacked washer and dryer. This unit is also a great companion for unit B ( the Original Sandbox listing #249610) 'for additional guests to be 'close by'. You will share the whole building with only 2 other units.

Less than a block from the beach (Gulf of Mexico) and a block from the bay (Laguna Madre). Convenience store, theatre, restaurants & shopping within walking distance. Free public transportation. Come & have a wonderful vacation in our absolutely unique beach house located just outside the island congested area. No big high-rise condos nearby. Come & relax, eat, shop and play!

Located 39 miles from Harlingen airport, 23 miles from Brownsville airport and 25 miles from Matamores, Mexico.

If you have not been to South Padre Island, you are missing the best beach west of the Mississippi
