Private Homes house description

This home was built in 2006 and has been freshly painted with beautiful tropical decor to get you in the island mood! The home is large enough for two families to stay comfortably with 4 large bedrooms and 3 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! 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 is a beautiful granite dining table that seats 6 and more room outside on the front deck to eat.

The upstairs front deck is a great place to relax and enjoy your morning cup of coffee at the outdoor table or watching the Saturday 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, a loveseat, and a 37' TV. There is a tiled shower/tub combo and double vanity. There is also a deck off the master bedroom that overlooks the pool.

There is another bedroom upstairs that has a queen size bed, large closet, and TV. The guests that stay in this bedroom will also have their own bathroom with a shower/tub combo.

There are 2 guest bedrooms downstairs with a bath. Bedroom #1 has a Queen size bed and a Queen size sleeper sofa. There is a large closet and TV.

Bedroom #2 has a Queen size bed and a twin with a twin trundle. This room is large enough to also bring in the fold-a-way cots that are stored in the garage if you need more sleeping space. This room also has a TV with DVD player.

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 WiFi 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 lounge chairs to work on your tan!

This house is located only 1/2 block to the beach access and near the middle of the island so everything is within walking distance.

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 back deck and check them out from the house!


                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2010

                      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 Lantana 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 II if you need a little bit smaller 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 pool was a big feature! We Love the amazing pool and beautiful backyard!
