Private Homes townhome description
Holidays are a pleasure at this spacious townhome. Just a few steps to the beautiful powder-soft sand of South Padre Island Beach. This immaculate and inviting townhouse is just across the street from the sand - and you save plenty! You get the privacy of a spacious townhouse for the price of a smaller condominium
The two large decks have full, unobstructed gulf views, as shown in the photo - so why pay more? Relax and enjoy the view of the beach. Lots of advertisements say they are 'close to the beach', but do they have this view? The beach is literally just steps away. You are right there!
And you will not be cramped in a condominium. You will have a full 1850 square foot house to enjoy. And one that is only 6 years old, and seems even newer because there is all brand new furniture. This is the place you want if you have a family (or two) on vacation!
The dual master suites can comfortably accommodate 6 adults. Each of the two very spacious bedroom suites has a queen-size bed and the one also has a day-bed, and both have their own full bath. With the fold-out queen-size sofa-sleeper and the additional day-bed in the living room for the kids, a total of 10 sleep comfortably.
The two balconies, each with a view of the gulf, provide a nice reading area in the morning sun or a great place to eat dinner (and the kids will love the picnic bench) There are also two additional balconies in the front of the house.
This 'home away from home' comes with all imaginable amenities. Three large TVs, cable, DVD, VCR, stereo, and CD keep you well entertained while not at the beach. There are many upgrades, including tiled kitchen and living room, and white Berber carpeting in the bedrooms. Each bathroom has a pretty Talavera sink.
A full kitchen, with dishwasher and all dishware, cookware and utensils, is included for your convenience. There is a separate dining area. Bed linens and other necessities are provided for your care-free holiday. A washer and dryer make packing easy! Phone with free local calls included.
The far end of the island is a state park, where you can be completely alone on the beach - to meditate, relax or watch the dolphins playing! The island also has horse back riding, a water park, a sea-turtle shelter/museum, boat tours (for great fishing and for dolphin-viewing tours), fantastic restaurants and nightclubs.
South Padre Island island is the perfect get-away destination to relax. The sugar-white, powder-soft beaches are a sight to behold, as is the tranquil, clear turquoise water. The Gulf water averages 78 degrees year-round. Dolphins can often be seen playing. Activities include hiking, biking, fishing, deep sea fishing, sail boating, scuba diving, snorkeling, kayaking, and wind surfing. There is a championship golf course ten minutes away. There is even free bus service to get around the island. Or visit Mexico for a shopping experience - it is only 25 miles away.
There are fantastic restaurants - Seafood, Barbecue, and Mexican -or get some just - caught jumbo shrimp from the fisherman and grill it yourself.

4 Day Getaway
4 Day Getaway
Myself, a good friend, my daughter and her boyfriend all came to SPI to enjoy a long weekend!! The townhouse was perfect. The layout gave us privacy and plenty of space to hang around the house. Any problems such as light bulbs needing replaced, were quickly handled by John, who is the person on call for you while at your stay!!! We could use the patios for breakfast each morning or enjoy the indoor dining in the roomy dining area! The townhome was well kept and ready for our stay. The pictures on the advertising of the home made it easy to recognize when we drove down the street. Beds were comfy and the kitchen was well stocked with utensils, cooking items, and cups and plates! The location made it easy to get to whatever activity we pursued each day. My daughter and her boyfriend walked to the beach every day we were there and took advantage of the closeness to the beach!! Ira was a pleasure to work with and kept in touch all through the process of setting up the rental and getting information to us in a timely fashion. I appreciate the good communication. For the cost, this was one of the best stays on the beach I have had and we do this at least two times each year. I recommend the townhome to anyone wanting to enjoy a stay on South Padre Island!! Nothing is far when driving and you can catch The Wave (bus) easily, too! We enjoyed the Turtle Rescue, Clayton's, parasailing! and the Dinner cruise. Of course, just lying on the beach was great, too!

Awesome beach rental!!!
Awesome beach rental!!!
We had a lovely two month stay at "life's a beach" - we loved all the room and the location was perfect!!! The island was very relaxed & small enough to be close to everything - the wonderful restaurants had delicious seafood - we went a whole week eating nothing but gulf shrimp -so fun!! The cost of eating out was not bad at all - we expected to pay more. Everything was set up so that the renters would have everything they needed and more!! Loved our time there and would definitely stay again - as it turns out I am a beach lover - was awesome to walkout the door and be at the beach in two minutes - enjoying the pounding surf and waves and seagulls!! I miss the beach!!! Great winter stay over spot!!!

This a a great place to stay. It has everything you need and Ira is wonderful host. He'll give you the scoop of all the places to eat and what to do. The condo is soooo peaceful - it felt like we were the only ones on the street! The picture above is from the balcony and it is real. The beach is amazing and they take care of the beach every morning and take away any seaweed or junk. The water is beautiful and the waves were great fun for me and my family. It takes about 3 minutes to get to the beach... you just walk across the street and the beach access is right there. You'll love it if you go.

We enjoyed staying at the town home on South Padre Island. Very near to the beach and everything else. There was plenty of room for the 4 of us and the house could easily accommodate more people. Working with Ira, the owner was easy and most pleasant. Enjoy your stay!

We feel so lucky to have managed a stay at your beautiful and excellently located Condo on South Padre Island. We frequent the Island often, but up until now have stayed at local Hotels etc. Well...that has ALL changed for us. We loved the condo...and it's proximity to the beach! It's homey and completely stocked with everything a family could possibly need! Thank you so much for your attention to detail and for ensuring that our stay was as perfect as any we've ever had at the Island! We intend to come back many times...and we're hoping your condo is available!

This was a great place to stay. Much more affordable than the places right on the beach but within great walking distance. I didn't feel like I was taking a long hike to get there. Lots of room for everyone. Ira was great to work with. We will be calling him the next time we stay at SPI.

South Padre at its best!
South Padre at its best!
Had a great stay at this well-maintained and clean townhome. Ira was easy to work with and had great suggestions on local attractions and good restaurants to visit. We tried all that were open at this post-spring break time. Especially enjoyed the seafood buffet he recommended. Also found a handy used book store within walking distance! The beach was within easy walking distance, too. Would recommend this rental to friends and family who might be headed to South Padre!

Great place for the family, easy walk to the beach took about 1min. kids made it quicker. The house was excellent I would stay here again in a heartbeat. I couldn't believe how nice everyone was in SPadre, we have a handicap child and as we were walking the beach the beach patrol stopped and informed us that the city fire department had beach accessible wheelchairs. We went and they let us use it for the week and did not charge us anything. Ira, was great to deal with made sure we had all numbers, addresses, etc. I just hope we can get down there again this summer.

We stayed 2 weeks 2/11 - 2/25/12. Townhouse was everything we expected, large, clean and very close to the beach (less than a 5 min. walk). Ira was very helpful, giving us some great tips about the Island. Looking forword to our next stay.
