    "While searching for a rental home that would accommodate at least 14 of our family, we discovered the Red Parrot. Not only were the kitchens, bedrooms and bathrooms perfect for our group, the owner, Fred H., was a pleasure to deal with in every aspect of our stay. The price was right, and the insides were clean. When we needed help, Fred was quick to assist with his maintenance man. We would definitely return to the Red Parrot."

  • HAPPY RENTER

    "WE HAD A GREAT TIME. THE LOCATION WAS GREAT WE COULD WALK TO THE BEACH SO WE DIDN'T HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT FINDING PARKING. I HAD THREE TEENS WITH ME SO IT WAS CLOSE ENOUGH THAT I ALLOWED THEM TO WALK TO THE BEACH BY THEMSELVES. THE CONDO WAS VERY NICE AND CLEAN. WE WOULD DEFINITELY TRY TO RENT THE SAME CONDO NEXT TIME WE COME BACK."

  • We loved the being on the bay!

    "Last year we stayed in two separate condos on the beach side of the island for our big family vacation, which was great. For this year, we wanted a place big enough to all stay together. We were also interested in trying out the bay side instead of the beach side. This townhome was perfect for us. We had a total of 17 people for most of the time, and up to 19 for 3 nights. We had 2 three year olds, 3 seven/eight year olds, 3 thirteen year olds, a 16 year old, and the rest adults. The loft was perfect for the tweeners. We all loved the game room. We loved being on the bay side and being able to fish right from the dock. The kids caught lots of fish, a couple of sea urchins, and a crab. They loved watching the sea slugs swim by. They netted a few and were fascinated when they "inked" going back into the water. The adult guys still went out on charters for "real" fishing, but they had a blast fishing from the dock in between those trips. We saw a sting ray swim by one evening while we were out on the second story balcony. We also sat out in the evenings and waved at all the party boats and dolphin watch cruises as they went by. Another huge plus were the 4 kayaks. We wanted to rent kayaks last year, but decided it was too expensive. It was awesome to have 4 right there at our disposal, and if you figure the cost of renting kayaks it makes the cost of renting this townhome even more reasonable. We all loved the kayaking (even me, a 56 year old grandmother!), but the 13 year olds would hardly get off of them! The living areas, kitchen, and baths were all wonderful (everything is IKEA - and we are big fans!) - well stocked, ready to use, and very nice. As far as the difference between the beach and the bay sides, we had the advantage that my Dad lives in a 2 bedroom condo on the beach side, so we were able to go to the beach and use the pool there. We also went to Clayton's which has great beach access. The listing description was accurate regarding the location (we walked to Liam's). The photos accurately reflected the rental's appearance and amenities. The property was clean and well-maintained. The owner was helpful in answering your questions or concerns - over and above. Klaus was exceptionally helpful. My oldest son left a toolbox in the garage and didn't realize it till we got home (9 hours away), and Klaus has been most helpful in getting it back to him. I highly recommend this property to friends, relatives, or anyone else! We plan to stay there again."

  • Last minute trip was a success!

    "We decided to take a last minute end of summer trip down to South Padre. Normally we stay in a 2 bedroom condo down the road but because it was just us, we found Hibiscus #1 on vrbo.com and booked it thru Rent on Padre. My husband, myself and my toddler fit perfectly into this condo. The parking was perfect, the location was exactly where we like to be on the island, but the best part was the backyard. Most fourplexes have tiny lap pools, this pool was AWESOME. It was shallow, it had a walking step on 2 sides, was perfectly redone! The chairs and hut style gazebo were super cute! This was the perfect backyard! The condo was clean, and well kept. It was obviously an older building but didnt bother us because it was nicely maintained. I would recommend this unit to small families. The bunks were not comfortable to grown upst because they used camping/cabin style mattresses, not real bed mattresses but I am sure kids wouldnt mind. There was not a lot of kitchenware: pans, barbecue tools, blender, so bring those along. The daily rate was great but that cleaning fee added almost another $100, ugh! But at least the condo was cleaned well for us so we know it will be cleaned up nicely for the next renter."
