Property description

Previous guests have particularly enjoyed: our location; comfortable beds (king beds in both bedrooms); 1100 sq. feet of spacious, well-decorated comfort; well-equipped kitchen; generous storage (pantry and closets); convenient beach access; proximity to premier island restaurants and attractions (i.e. Louis', Laguna Bob's, Tequila Sunset on the bay and Boomerang Billy's on the beach). Higher than average ceilings enhance the feeling of spaciousness.

This house originally belonged to one of the early developers of South Padre Island. It was moved off the beach and put up on concrete block stilts. We subsequently added the downstairs apartment.

Owners reserve the upstairs for our own use. Owner management eliminates costly management fees, resulting in competitive rates.

Our property is about a half block to the beach and a block and a half to the 'Entertainment District' on the bay. The entertainment available includes Gravity Park, miniature golf, go karts, and several bars and restaurants. The sunsets are glorious from the bay side, and summer fireworks (Memorial Day weekend to Labor Day weekend) can be seen from the end of our driveway every Thursday and Friday evenings at 9:15 over the bay. Entertainment available from various locations includes Schlitterbahn Water Park, dolphin and Eco tours, horseback riding, parasailing, jet skiing, Sea Turtle, Inc., the Birding Center to name a few. Or, many visitors choose to simply enjoy the beautiful beach and then relax in your spacious living area.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 1998

About the owner: She fell in love with the beach when living in Peru as a child - he in Hawaii. After visiting Texas beaches, one trip to South Padre Island convinced us that this was THE beach for us. As we enjoy our paradise, we believe we have found one of the premier beaches of the world...

Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
This property is located in a prime area of the island. Proximity to the beach as well as the bayside and walking distance to many restaurants, shops, and entertainment venues makes this an ideal location.
