This property is located in the heart of North Padre Island adjacent to the beautiful and challenging Island Golf Course. If there is a golfer in your group, be prepared to sidestep the abundance of wildlife from hares to Herons. The North Padre Island Country Club is actually at you back door. There are no pets allowed here or at the "sister" property to this condo (see VRBO / Homeaway # 696517) which is just as nice...only 10 doors down. This condo has recently been completely renovated to give you an 'island experience'. New appliances include washer and dryer combination unit from LG, microwave and dishwasher for you convenience ensuring a wonderful vacation time. A new 18 cubic foot refrigerator and new GE stove round out the kitchen appliances. There are also new cabinets and granite counter tops in the kitchen. This (1) bedroom / 1 full Bath (re-modeled) spacious condo also has a pull-out sofa bed (new) to allow for comfortable sleeping for up to (4) adults. The Master bedroom (re-modeled) has a full King size bed with new Simmons mattresses. This North Padre Island condo has a new 42'W flat screen TV, new ceiling fans and a great view patio. When the weather is warm enough, there is a wonderful complex tropical pool and hot tub for everyone to enjoy. All children under (14) need to be accompanied by adults per the complex management. There is general parking available. The carport next to the entrance belongs to the upper floor units - they needed to have something to make up for not being on the first floor :) While your visiting, there are many activities to take advantage of. Guided fishing tours in the pristine Laguna Bay system and for those with a real adventure hunger, you can travel back into Baffin Bay. This is probably the most natural and isolated bay anywhere along the southern Gulf Coast! The (15) miles of white sand beaches that separate North Padre Island from Port Aransas offer many areas for family's and tourists to walk along and search for many unusual shells to the more common and plentiful sand dollars. Miles and miles of clean beach awaits you and your group! For a change of pace, a quick trip to Port Aransas offers many shops and restaurants for those looking for coastal souvenirs and gourmet food. You can even rent your own golf cart and scoot around the beach or shops! Back on North Padre Island you'll have your own local restaurants with sports bars, bistros and sushi. Horseback riding is available on the beach with horses for beginners to those with more skill and experience. It has a beautiful canal view and is walking distance to golf clubhouse for a round on the links and a stones throw to the beach! Beautifully furnished and easy access to all activities on the Island from restaurants to horseback riding on the beach! This wonderful condo is very quiet and only three blocks from the beach. The seashore road to Port Aransas (15 minute drive) is a block away and Corpus's wonderful malls back OTB (over-the-bridge) also 15 minutes away! North Padre Island offers probably the nicest and cleanest beaches on the Texas Coast. Pristine and secluded Big Shell is just minutes down the coast for some of the best surf fishing anywhere! This truly is an area along the coast that time seems to have forgotten....... but not for long. Schlitterbahn is coming and in a big way. To be precise, this condo will be centrally located between the golf course and the future Schlitterbahn park. So, bring your margarita making skills and kick back after a long, fun filled day. Kick your feet up, watch the sunset between the palm trees and relax. After the sun has rested, look upward...........the south Texas stars are a thing to behold. If we say so ourselves, Jimmy Buffet would be asking for more gumbo or another cheeseburger......at this North Padre Island Paradise.
