North Padre Island house description

GORGEOUS WATERFONT SPANISH HACIENDA ON NORTH PADRE ISLAND OFF THE COAST OF CORPUS CHRISTI, TEXAS

The Kemp Ridley turtles visit the Padre Island National Seashores to lay their eggs from April to July every year. A couple hundred Ridley turtle nests were found last year and brought to the National Seashore for hatching and release into the ocean.

We've made our vacation home available for your use so you may enjoy the beauty and tranquility of North Padre Island. This 2200 square foot home has been completely remodeled and redecorated in a spanish hacienda style with saltillo tile throughout the house. All rooms in the house have breath taking views of the water.

Our home has 3 bedrooms and 3 1/2 bathrooms - two master bedrooms with queen beds and one bedroom with a full bed. A queen inflatable bed is available for kids or other guests. We will provide all the bed linens and towels for you. A full office area with wireless networking, printer and fax is also available for those of you who just can't get away from the office - bring your laptops and you won't miss a beat.

The great room and expansive deck are the center of all activity - fireplace, cable TV, entertainment center, movies, and games are perfect for the family and entertaining guests. Bring your boat for a fishing getaway to the IntraCoastal waterway or the Gulf of Mexico. The pristine beaches of the Padre Island National Seashore are less than 5 minutes from the house.

For those of you who love to cook, the kitchen is fully equipped with all amenities and lovely place settings to serve a gourmet meal. You can always eat outdoors on the deck while 'bar-b-queing' your catch of the day. We've installed brand new appliances - a 4-burner stove, oven, microwave, dishwasher, washer and dryer to help you spend less time indoors and more time enjoying your stay on the Island with all the comforts of home.

WE ARE ABSOLUTELY POSITIVE YOU WILL ENJOY OUR HOME AND THE WONDERS OF PADRE ISLAND!!

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2005

                      About the owner: My wife Lorena and I (Arnab) bought this vacation home in 2005. We visit several times every year with our 2 daughters during school vacations. Absolutely love the island and the pace of life. We have found our visits help bring the family together in a stress-free environment that create fun adventures & fond memories.

                      Why the Owner Chose North Padre Island:
                      This place is truly our vacation home (versus a rental). We shipped several pieces of furniture and items from our home in CA when we decided to buy this place so it would remind us of home when we visit. This place has all the comforts & luxuries of a well-furnished home.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      The deck in the back is absolutely our favorite place to 'hang' out whether it's with a cup of coffee, glass of wine or a fun meal after a long fishing day.
