"The condo was very spacious. We had a perfect front view of the fireworks every night we were there. The beach is a block away and so is just about everything you need, grocery store and restaurants. The living room couch was a little outdated, but that is just cosmetic. The rental agent Aissa was wonderful to work with, she walked me through every step of the rental and gave me her phone number in case I had any questions. I would rent from her again and I would definitely recommend to my friends."

"Greg was very helpful from the beginning all the way until after the trip. I spent Fourth of July weekend with some girlfriends and we had a blast. The condo was beautiful and so close to the beach! It was also pretty spacious and had everything we needed. The condo was very clean and well-maintained when we arrived and had cleaning supplies to wash your dishes or do laundry.
The location is very convenient. During the day, we would head out to the beach which was about a 2 minute walk and then walk back to the pool, which had an outdoor shower to wash off all the sand. There's a movie theater that was located at the end of the street, so we decided to walk there one night to watch a movie. It's pretty close to some restaurants like Wanna Wanna and Blackbeards and about a 3-5 minute drive to Louie's Backyard or Clayton's if you wanted to go out at night for some drinks and/or dancing.
I would definitely recommend booking this condo from Greg. You can't go wrong with this place! This was my first time visiting South Padre Island and if I ever come back, I will certainly be contacting Greg again."

"5th floor corner unit right by the stairs. Elevator was also convenient as well as carts to load and unload. Easy beach access. Nice big grill on nice BIG balcony with great view overlooking swimming pools, tennis courts, and ocean. Nice balcony furniture – table/4 chairs, lounges (2) and regular chairs (2).
The unit is quite spacious – much bigger and nicer than photos depict. (and more natural light than photos.) Furniture and appliances are well maintained; in very good shape. Kitchen is well-stocked with utensils, dishes, glasses, pots, pans, even coffee filters, & sugar. (Also had hot pads & couple of kitchen towels.)
Nice beds and sheets (Someone’s earlier review in 2014 is no longer applicable though we came prepared with our own sheets if needed!) All plumbing worked well except master tub was alittle slow to drain.
Internet – not one for the unit itself – have to use the one for the entire complex. Good luck. We could never get it to connect – too much traffic? We found some other unsecured connections in the building but those were slow.
TV in living room is color but when use DVD, it is black & white!! No kidding. Two talented adult men worked hard to find a solution but couldn’t. No remote for the DVD.
No remote for the DVD in 2nd bedroom and TV reception is terrible.
No remote for the master bedroom TV and TV was stuck on Spanish station.
No utensils for the BBQ grill so bring your own for cooking (if you like them long) and a wire brush for cleaning. (We had to buy them in town at the grocery store – and didn’t leave them.) Note: Center burners on grill don’t light automatically.
Air flow in 2nd bedroom was poor – it was quite warm in there with the door closed so left it open which helped alittle. No ceiling fan – bring a floor fan! Rest of unit was quite comfortable.
A few light bulbs were burned out (no replacements) – and some light switches are a bit tricky in how they control lamps & fixtures.
As for swimming pools – rather small, crowded, and water temp too warm. Skip the pools and head to the beach or the tennis courts! (We brought our own rackets & balls.)
Host (Scott) was very responsive by email before we arrived and by text after we got there. Tried to help us with internet suggestions.
Definitely recommend this property and particularly this unit and host.
Suggestion for restaurant not on the beaten list: Cafe Kranzler (awesome menu and food, beautiful atmosphere, great staff)"
