Unit #205.....Suntide III, known as “The Best on the Beach“, is a beautiful condo-hotel centrally located on the beach and within easy walking distance to shopping and restaurants. Suntide III has indoor and outdoor pools; indoor and outdoor Jacuzzis; tennis and basketball courts; multiple sundecks with comfortable lounge chairs; a sauna; and a nicely equipped exercise room. Umbrellas and chairs are available for the beach.
All glass floor-to-ceiling unobstructed views of the beach from your master bedroom and living room. Beautifully updated to fit finer tastes. Your first impression will be that unlike other long and narrow condos on the island, this one has a roomy, wide feel to it!
The thick glass sliding doors are a new feature. All appliances, silverware, glassware, (wine and other), plates, cooking supplies are there for you. Don't pay to wash your clothes, with a convenient washer and dryer inside! The bar is a nice feature for your entertaining, and the Frog is a cool conversation piece.
Inside, we are cool in the summer and warm in the winter. All three bedrooms have good distance from each other, and each has access to a full bathroom. The master is closest to the beach.
A front desk is staffed from 9 am to 10 pm, and is there to serve you. There is 24/7 security, and the complex is gated all the way around.
No need to take the elevator, as we are on the 2nd floor. Come down in the morning for a cup of Cappucino, as we have a machine in the lobby. No need to run to the store to get ice for your cooler, as the front desk a supply. Get some business done in the office lounge, or entertain in the very expansive lobby. Grills and a picnic are available just down the stairs for outdoor BBQ.

There is a free public bus called the Wave that stops at our front gate. You may ride this free bus anywhere on the island and across the bridge to Port Isabel and back. Get on the Wave, hop off when you please, shop, lunch, walk around, then hop back on the bus for a free ride home.

Immediately on the beach, just a block from the Island's grocery store. The condo is part of a larger complex with lots of organized activities for all ages. Rent a dune buggy, buy inexpensive beach gear and beachwear, sip a margarita nearby...its all very close. In our secure complex, you can purchase ice for your cooler, grill out at a large grilling station, and rent an umbrella and chairs for the day.
Year Purchased: 2014
About the owner: We purchased this condo after spending 27 consecutive summers staying here in South Padre. We researched them all, and this one was the best fit for us! It has everything we want, but living and working in Austin keeps us from staying there year- round.
Why the Owner Chose Sandcastle: This property was managed the best from all we viewed. It has all the amenities we could ever need, and the size to fit our large family and relatives when they come to visit. The staff keep things immaculate, and in excellent repair. We love being on the second floor as there are no elevator waits. However, if you need the elevators they are quick and well air conditioned.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo: Laying on the sofa or the bed, we can see all of the ocean and the sand. If you go too high up, you only see water on the horizon and the sky. I enjoy seeing the waves break.
