                                    Wonderful vacation home!Everything was just a described or more! Plenty of room for my husband and our 2 adult children and their honeys. Three nice size bedrooms with nice large beds. Plenty of common area for all of us. The balcony received lots of use-especially at night. Great breeze off of the Gulf even though it was hot & humid. Plenty of dishes, etc. Everything you need except laundry detergent. We were less than a block from the "good" public beach access. Only 1/2 block from a small path to the beach. Sharon was wonderful to work with. She answered all of my questions in a timely fashion, both phone and email! She had lots of useful information about the island - what to do & where to go. We grilled some meals but ate out too. Lots of great places with good food! The local store had a good variety and the prices were fair. Plenty of shopping. We snorkeled and parasailed. We most often just sat on the beach soaking up the sun! Fun times. Would recommend this home. Actually we already have to our friends!

                                    We are back for another visit to this lovely home and found it to be exactly as it was presented on our last visit. Everything was super clean and comfortable.  The owner, Sharon, checked on us to insure that everything was to our satisfaction.  This house is very nice, well maintained and is an excellent value. We will return to this location and recommend it to family and friends.

                                    What a pleasant surprise this home was. It was truly a good size...much larger than we thought. My husband and I, along with our Westie, had plenty of room by ourselves. And when our 2 older kids arrived with their SO's, we were not crowded at all. We were pleased with the cleanliness of everything. The kitchen was very well stocked..we lacked nothing. Sharon was a delight to work with. Sadly for us, this rental is booked for our vacation time next year.

                                    Loved the stay at this property. The house was furnished with everything we needed. Very clean and tidy with more than ample room for 2 adults and 2 bulldogs. Easy access to the beach and traveling around the island. The owners do a nice job of depicting the property in the listing and it exceeded our expectations. Absolutely one of the best rental properties we have stayed in.

                                    From the moment we arrived and saw how nice the house was I knew it was going to be an excellent week. We found everything to be in great condition. Everything we needed in the kitchen and baths were available to us. The owner has gone above and beyond to make sure she has stocked the kitchen with all the needed utensils. Also everything was so clean and fresh, it made us feel right at home. It was wonderful to be so close to the beach. Having a place downstairs to rinse off after being at the beach was a big plus? We were within walking distance of the beach, restaurants and grocery store. All the places that the owner recommended were excellent. I want to thank Sharon for the wonderful experience my family had at her beach house. We are already looking forward to our next visit.  Everything about our visit was extraordinary. This location and house exceeded my already high expectations. I will be recommending Sharon and her home to family and friends.

                                    I can't say enough great things about this place. It's so clean and well appointed...anything you could possibly need. On the beach in a couple of minutes and then it has a great outdoor shower to wash off the sand before you go inside. Beautiful well-stocked kitchen; three lovely bedrooms and plenty of space to kick back and relax. I guarantee you won't find a nicer owner than Sharon. She responds to email so quickly and supplied us with great info. She went above and beyond the call of duty. I will definitely put her email in a safe place so I can reach her again.

                                    This is our first time renting from VRBO and my husband was very skeptical to say the least. To make a long story short, we had the best time! The house was just as the owners said it would be. No surprises! The pictures tell the whole story. It was easy to find, one block from the beach (which we loved to be able to come home and each lunch w/out being attacked by seagulls), very clean, very spacious (we could all have our separate rooms and bathrooms) and very comfortable. The owners are absolutely amazing! The nicest lady I have ever talked to. She told us just where to go and what to do. The neighbors are very friendly people, for that matter, everyone on the beach was very friendly too. We wished we could stay longer, but it was rented. I can see why!! OH, and our deposit was put back in our account the same day we checked out. That impressed my husband!!

                                    We had a wonderful month in Sharon's Beach House. The property is very, very clean and well-maintained. The floorplan is convenient and the beds are comfortable. The unit is well decorated and full of useful items. The beach is a few steps away and a joy every day. Sharon has nailed the customer service aspect of this rental with her friendly manner, great suggestions, prompt responses to emails and effective problem solving. Thanks Sharon!

We could walk to beach, restaurants and grocery store. Sand castle event was going while we were there. Very impressive. Sharon gave us good suggestions about where to eat and shop. (Girl friends do have to shop.) We had wonderful time and want to go again the next chance we get. ellen

                                    I have never taken the time to write a review of a place I have stayed in before, but the attention and care the owners put into this house deserves to be recognized. This house was NOT just another rental. This was truly like getting to stay in someone's beach house! What a treat. The house was CLEAN and SPACIOUS and BEAUTIFULLY FURNISHED (the pictures do not do it justice.) Everything was WELL MAINTAINED and FAR EXCEEDED our expectations. Off-season was a good time to go as there were NO lines or crowds. We enjoyed safely bicycling around the island and sailing in the ocean. The beach had white soft sand and the water was very clean and still warm enough for swimming. Islanders are very friendly and helpful, as was Sharon, the owner of the house. The house had everything we needed, including covered parking for our tandem bicycle and boat. I HIGHLY recommend this house and South Padre Island as a great vacation spot for a quiet get-away, which is why my husband and I came, or a family gathering, which I will be planning for the future.

                                  Owner info

                                  Year Purchased: 2009

                                  About the owner: My husband and I are retired and love to travel, but our favorite place to be is South Padre Island. The water is beautiful and the beaches are clean. We could go anywhere, but prefer to be on our balcony at the island.

                                  Why the Owner Chose Other South Padre Island Properties:
                                  The choice to buy on South Padre Island was an easy one. The island has an atmosphere of a tourist resort. Many people can be seen strolling the main street up and down the island and when they get tired of strolling they can rent a bicycle or hop on the free shuttle and ride back to our house near the beach.

                                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                                  Our house is cozy yet the open floor plan makes it feel roomy. With the full size washer and dryer inside the condo, it is never an unpleasant job getting your wet towels and suits ready for the next trip down to the beach. Just a few days in our house can make it feel like your home away from home.
