Property description

This beautiful condo will make your dream vacation on South Padre Island. Stunning views of the Laguna Madre from all rooms and the large outdoor deck. Private boat slip included, reserved car parking space, and access to the lovely condo association (shared) swimming pool. Lush tropical landscaping and grass all around the complex. Large shared fishing dock with evening spot lights (to attract the fish) and a fish cleaning table. This condo has the best views on the island for sunsets and for Friday night fireworks. Comfortably sleeps five people. Three flat screen TVs, stereo system (includes speakers on the deck), and high speed WiFi Internet.

While this is a new property rental listing with no renter reviews yet, we previously sold another rental property which had over 50 'rave' reviews and even more very happy former and repeat renters. We believe strongly in taking care of our condo and taking care of our guests!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: This condo has been our exclusive home away from home for the last six years, and we are just starting to rent it part time, beginning in the spring 2013. We love South Padre Island and plan to retire there. The above photo is our family, celebrating the release of an Atlantic Green turtle that we rescued from being snagged in a crab trap. We brought the turtle to Sea Turtle, Inc. (a non-profit sea turtle rescue & rehabilitation center on South Padre Island), and after a few months in their care... we released the turtle again to where we rescued it originally in the Laguna Madre. See http://www.seaturtleinc.org/ and visit them when you come to South Padre Island!

Why the Owner Chose Sandcastle:
Our first condo on South Padre Island was on the Gulf side, but after falling in love with the Western exposure to the Laguna Madre, including the incredible sunsets and summertime fireworks... we soon found this condo and sold the other one. This condo 'IS IT' for us, and we are sure you will love it, too.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Check out the second photo, taken from a boat on the Laguna Madre, of our condo unit. This will hopefully help you get a feel for the views you're going to be enjoying. Note that this condo includes both the 2nd and 3rd floors of the building, as outlined with the labeled box in the photo. A couple of features make this condo unit unique: -The deck is huge, over the entire width of the condo (something like 30+ ft), and about 8-10 ft deep. It is a viewing paradise for water, birds, sunsets, etc. (including the best seat on the island for the city fireworks, every Friday night from Memorial Day to Labor Day, plus July 4th and New Year's Eve) -The four windows you see on South West corner of the 2nd floor of the condo (3rd floor of the building) are all in the master bedroom. Nearly 180 degrees of water... a wonderful view to start each day of your vacation on South Padre Island! - There is a bar area adjacent to the dining area, with a second small refrigerator and a large capacity ice maker. - The master bathroom has a two person Jacuzzi tub (jetted tub), in addition to a separate shower stall.
