This home was built in 2000 and recently remodeled inside and out. Everything is new and fresh for your stay at the island! The home is large enough for two families to stay comfortably with 3 large bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. It is a perfect home away from home for relaxing and entertaining.
There is a large open-area living/dining/kitchen upstairs with several windows to give you a great view while you are cooking or relaxing! The kitchen has been updated with all new stainless steel appliances and granite counter tops. Everything you will need is provided in this kitchen including all dishes, glasses, silverware, toaster, can opener, blender, knives, coffeemaker, pots, pans, and anything else you might need!
The living room has a comfortable sofa and loveseat that is an excellent space to watch the 42' TV. There is a DVD player and a selection of movies for your entertainment - or bring your own! There are 2 dining spaces - one that seats 5 and another one that seats 6. Use one for dining and the other for a game table!
The enormous upstairs front deck is a great place to relax and enjoy your morning cup of coffee at the outdoor table or watching the Friday night fireworks while sitting in the cool breeze. Make sure you check out the ocean view from the deck while you are relaxing!
The large upstairs master suite is a sanctuary away from home. The bedroom boasts a king size bed, large walk-in closet, two loveseats, and a 37' TV. There is a tiled shower with 2 shower heads and a jacuzzi tub to help you relax after a day in the surf. There is also a deck off the master bedroom that overlooks the pool and has a beach view.
There are 2 guest bedrooms downstairs with a bath in between. Bedroom #1 (the kid's room) has 2 sets of twin over full bunk beds as well as one twin trundle - that makes 7 kids in one room! Now if you can just get them all to agree on what movie to watch on the 37' TV and DVD player!
Bedroom #2 has 2 Queen size memory foam mattress beds and also has a 37' TV with DVD player. Adults in one room/kids in the other and everyone is able to kick back and relax in such an inviting space. Both downstairs bedrooms have an excellent view of the pool area.
The downstairs bath has a shower/tub combo so if you have smaller children that need to take a bath you are able to take care of them.
There is a large laundry room so that you can wash all the sand away before you pack up.
There is Wi-fi access, Time Warner Cable, and several DVDs to choose from. Every room is equipped with a TV and DVD player. If you would like to bring your game system it would easily hook up in any room. I know how important it is to keep the kiddos entertained even when there is a beach just a short walk from the front door!
There are beach toys, boogie boards, and beach towels so that you don't have to buy or bring these items for your stay. When you come back from a long day at the beach use the outdoor shower to get off all the sand before you jump in the cool pool right in the backyard. There is a large deck area that has relaxing Adirondack chairs as well as a table and chairs so you can eat a snack or dinner by the pool!
This house is located only 1/2 block to the beach access, 1 block from the Island Market, 1 block to the bookstore, walking distance to Wanna Wanna beach bar, shopping, and several restaurants.
If you enjoy exercising, this is a great place to run or jog. There is a walking/bike path along Gulf Blvd or you can run on the beach. Make sure you get up early to see the sunrise over the ocean. It truly is an amazing sight to see. If you aren't an early riser then check out the sunset over the bay - another sight not to be missed.
When you visit the island there is so much to do. Make sure you check out Schlitterbahn Beach Water Park for a great family water park, the Island Equestrian Center for horseback riding on the beach, Sea Turtle, Inc. for an interesting tour about the sea turtles that nest on the island, Clayton's Beach Bar which is the largest outdoor bar in Texas, Louie's for bungee jumping and go-kart racing, and so much more. At our house there will be a book that provides you with a description and contact information of all of the local attractions and restaurants. Our goal is for you to not only enjoy our home, but also this wonderful city!

South Padre Island is a beach paradise. This area is known for its beautiful beaches and warm surf. This small city has many amenities including numerous restaurants, extensive shopping, all types of fishing, and any water sport you can imagine. South Padre Island has a small town feel where everyone you meet is friendly and welcoming. The city provides free bus transportation up and down the island and also across the bridge to Port Isabel for larger stores such as Wal-Mart and H.E.B. The city is pedestrian and bike friendly as well.
From Memorial Day to Labor Day there are fireworks every Friday night out over the bay and every Saturday night from Clayton's over the beach. If you don't feel like driving to watch them, just sit on the large front deck and check them out from the house!
Year Purchased: 2013
About the owner: We live in Harlingen which is about 45 minutes away from South Padre Island. We spend as much time as we can on the island because it is an amazing vacation spot! Every time we cross the causeway to the island we leave all of our troubles and stress behind and just relax. We have traveled to many beaches and we don't feel that there is much better than South Padre! We have been coming here every summer for the past 6 years and consider ourselves local. If you have any questions or concerns while you are here on your stay please feel free to contact us and we will enjoy helping you.
Why the Owner Chose Private Homes: We purchased this home on Cora Lee because of the location and access to the best beach in Texas! We also have another home on the island that we rent - look for Casa Del Sol I if you need a little bit bigger home.
The Unique Benefits at this House: There are so many wonderful properties about this beach house, but the best things are that the beach access is so close and the neighborhood is quiet and peaceful. Also, the front deck was a big feature! We LOVE that deck!
