Property description

This condo is the owners' personal vacation home, with those added touches that make it comfortable and inviting. Large rooms, a vaulted ceiling, and an open floor plan give a spacious feel, while the tasteful decor, beautifully accented in ocean colors, provides a beach cottage atmosphere. Ample southern and western windows make the condo bright and airy, and offer bay views from the bedroom and kitchen.

The master bedroom has a king bed and double closets, and the living room has a queen sleeper sofa. There is plentiful storage space for those planning a long vacation! The huge covered tile veranda has a wonderful breeze with a view of the bay and its great sunsets, and is perfectly situated for South Padre's famous summer fireworks shows.

The condo is well-equipped with cookware, utensils, many kitchen extras, a washer/dryer, as well as wi-fi, cable, DVD player, and an LED HD flatscreen TV. It is located on the second floor of a small, quiet complex, with close, easy access from designated parking.

Relax on the veranda, or take advantage of the island's abundant beach, fishing, watersports, dining, and shopping opportunities. Beaches are beautiful! Drive-on beach access and excellent surf fishing are available at Edwin K. Atwood Park, on the north end of the island.

MONTHLY RATES AVAILABLE JANUARY - MARCH. No Spring Breakers.

Location

Car: Recommended

Laguna Madre Bay is known for excellent kiteboarding. If you don't kiteboard, take a few minutes to go watch them at the park on the bay side north of the Convention Center.

The Sea Turtle Rescue Center (6617 Padre Blvd.) is informative and interesting, a must see if you have children.

Schlitterbahn Beach Water Park is on the south side of the island, near Isla Blanca Park.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: Dave and Sunni met in college at the University of Miami - beach lovers from the beginning! Bay Dancer is the fulfillment of a long-time dream to have a second home near the beach. South Padre Island has fabulous beaches where we spend days and weeks (when we can!) surf fishing and beach combing. We have fallen in love with the island and are glad to share it's beauty, and our condo, with others.

Why the Owner Chose Other South Padre Island Properties:
Miles and miles of white sand beaches attracted us to South Padre Island. We have 4-wheel drive and spend our time along the 25 miles of uninterrupted and often near-deserted beach on the north end of the island, with the towering sand dunes, ever-changing water colors, and innumerable varieties of sea birds and other wildlife. Such undisturbed beauty - and great surf fishing - is difficult to find.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Bay Dancer is three blocks from a walk-on beach access (at the east end of Atol) with parking, restrooms, and showers, and 4 miles from the drive-on beach access. It is a short walk to dining and shopping, and a quick drive to anything on the island. Less than a block from Laguna Madre Bay, you can enjoy fabulous sunsets over the bay from the veranda, or stroll down and sit on the seawall for a panoramic view, including the seabirds and boats. Be sure you are on the veranda on Friday evenings at 9:15 during the summer for the spectacular fireworks.
