Excellent location & nice, comfortable condo!
Excellent location & nice, comfortable condo!
My family of 5 recently stayed in this condo, and we had a great vacation. The best part of the condo is the location - right on the beach - which makes it very easy to tote chairs, beach toys, umbrella, etc. to the beach. By the way, there are chairs, beach toys, boogie boards and a beach umbrella in the condo so you don't have to buy and bring all of that stuff! The pool area was nice as well, and the kids loved swimming in the pool, and there are at least 3 BBQ pits around the pool area that were being used every night. As far as the condo itself, it was perfect for our family. Don't expect 5 star amenities because that isn't what this condo is. But if you want a comfortable condo with a full kitchen - which we used extensively to keep food costs down - and a condo with a cold AC, then this is a great place to stay. The balcony looks out mostly to the bay, and you have a great view of the city. If you're in this condo on Friday nights, you'll have the best view on the island of the fireworks show. We had no problems at all with anything in the condo, and we would stay here again if we travel to South Padre Island in the future. Thank you, Carol (owner), for making everything so smooth and easy!

Owner response: Brandon, we appreciate your review. The most important thing is that you all had a GREAT time and created more Family memories. Sounds as if you had lots of FUN and the kids enjoyed the beach/pool. It is great to hear that all the beach toys we leave for the use of our guests was well used! We try to have everything possible in the Condo for all to use & as you said even save costs. We'd love to hear from you again to stay with us. Thanks again & God Bless!
Love this place!
Love this place!
We've stayed in this condo for three winters now and LOVE it! Although we can see the Gulf of Mexico's surf and beach activities (parachuters, kiteboarders, sandcastle builders, walkers and joggers ) from the balcony, it's the Island and the Queen Isabella Causeway over the beautiful Laguna Madre Bay we love looking at from the 9th floor! We love watching the weekly fireworks; the pirate ship plying the waters along with the Thriller jet boat and jet skiers, parasailers, shrimpers and fishermen on the Bay. The unit is nicely furnished, well equipped, and very comfortable with a large, open kitchen. Central AC, thick towels, nice sheets, beach toys. Huge flat screen TV in LR. TV's also in both bedrooms - all with good cable stations. VCR/DVD and in-unit WiFi. Gated parking and a very secure building with great staff and landscaped grounds and pool/spa/BBQ/lawn area. Public TV, ping pong room and small exercise room. Best of all, Aquarius is EASY walking distance to everything you could need or want! Big Boys BBQ/bar, Taco Bell, Pizza Hut, Subway, Chinese/sushi are all on Padre Bl; Coconuts($1.50 great cheeseburgers!) Sunset, Louies Backyard, Palm Street Pier are all on the Bay (2-3 easy blocks); Palms Cafe and Wanna Wanna are on the beach. CVS, Ace Hardware, and numerous clothing/beachwear/souvenir shops are on Padre Bl. You'll also want to drive to Daddy's, Dirty Al's, Amberjacks, theatre, Sunday farmer's market and on and on - on the Island. Cross the Causeway to Pelican Station, Pirates Landing, Manuels, and White Sands! Enough about food!! You'll love this condo and it's owners, Carol and Joe! (But we get first dibs on winter here!!)

Owner response: Thank you Nancy & Charles for the Great Review! We enjoyed having you again with us this Winter & we look forward again to your return in '2012'. You always will have our Blessing on your returns for the Winter first! You truly say it all as we are centrally located on the Island and so close to everything a person could want for. It is a Paradise of everything one seeks, relaxation, excitement, adventure and of course the best; eating! I think you named all our favorites to! If anyone needs to work, we even have Internet set up in the Unit. We constantly have return guests and that is always our goal. We are blessed to make new friends all the time. We'd like to encourage everyone to check us out!
This was more than we expected.
This was more than we expected.
We have been on 16 vacations all the way from the caribbean to Mexico and Hawaii, being from Minnesota we like to go to warm places. This year money was kinda tight so we didn't think we could go anywhere till i found a cheap flight down to Harlingen Texas, then we looked for somewhere to stay. We came across this place because the price was right,didn't really expect much for what we were going to pay but to our surprise this place is very very nice,inside and out. It was fully equipped with all we needed and more.The unit must have been remodeled not to long ago because everything looked new.The whole property was very,very clean inside and out. My family and i had a great time and are so happy we went to this place,we walked a lot on the beach and looked at other resorts and decided if we came back next year we would for sure stay in the same unit because it was perfect.I would rate this property as a 4 star. We have 2 teenagers one is 14 and one is 13 and sometimes they are hard to please when it comes to traveling but they were having so much fun down there,Fishing swimming,go carts,putt-putt,boogie boarding,shell hunting,horse back riding,atv's and BBQ's, it was nice not to hear them complain. So thank you for the wonderful place to stay and we will see you next year. P.S. This unit even had boogie boards ,umbrella and beach chairs in it for us to use.

Owner response: It was so nice to hear your review of our property. Thank you so much! We always try to keep our unit stocked as we would want it if it were ourselves renting. A vacation for folks not to have to worry about anything needed in the Unit and especially a place for Total relaxation at reasonable & affordable prices! The Island has a lot to offer for excitement for all people, with or without families to enjoy. Many fine restaurants, movie theatre, souvenir shops of all kinds, a waterpark that is open mid-May through mid September, and many other outdoor activities. We even have FREE accessible transportation on the Island (The Wave), which stops every 1/2 hour on the hour in front of all locations giving rides to vacationers anywhere on the Island or even over to Port Isabel, on the mainland. We look forward to your next visit!
