  • Upscale Beach Get-away

    "Beautiful and comfortable accommodations with a gorgeous view of the Gulf. Full service resort/condo with gym, spa and cabanas to enjoy by a magnificent pool! My husband and I would definitely return for a relaxing and pleasant weekend in this very nicely furnished condo and believe it is the best S. Padre has to offer."

  • Fantastic Stay, great home

    "We visited the Austin area from CA and spent a long weekend here with family who joined us from Ft. Worth. Our time here was wonderful. The house was great for families and had plenty of room. This home was very comfortable, well decorated, well maintained and had a great location. We had a wonderful stay with extremely accommodating owners. Our young boys loved watching the deer on the front lawn each morning and dusk on the balcony was truly enjoyable. The area ammenities were great and our stay could not have been better. We would definately stay here again if in the area. THANK you!"

    "Just spent three glorious days at this house. (Wish we could of stay longer). The house is very clean with everything included!! (Towels beach towels dishes etc) Just bring yourself and enjoy The owner Tom is very accomdating with restaurants suggestions (all great) and any problems you may have. There is also a large front loader washer and dryer to clean your towels! We went to the beach the first day and as we were pulling out of the driveway Tom came out and gave us a tent. Boy did we need it! After spending the morning at the beach we got to spend quiet time at the pool. Area is very quiet and relaxing."

  • above what I could have expected!

    "This was our family's first trip to Port A. However, we traveled with a seasoned family who has stayed in various locations on the island. The minute we checked in around 5pm, we headed toward the beach with drink in hand. It instantly eased the 7 hour drive from Fort Worth. Beth was extremely helpful in assisting us with making the reservation. Her sister checked us in. The property is well kept up and maintained. Fellow condo-ites were kind and we all moved throughout the property seamlessly. This unit slept 7 of us comfortably. We never felt crowded and that was with 4 boys, 3 of which are teenagers. With all the showering (and laundry) we did (2 bathrooms huge help!) never did we run out of water. We grilled out a few nights which was simple and easy and cooked the other nights. The walk/drive to the private pier was perfect. This unit has an amazing balcony-the breeze from the ocean was enjoyed with morning coffee and evening wine. Again, this unit (I'm assuming all the units) was well worth it! My feeling with vacationing (and being an employee of a 4 star resort) there are those individuals out there who are looking to find fault will always find fault-that is there loss. This property does not deserve any negativity-truly. Thanks to all for making the last getaway before school start be a memorable one!"

Texas Travel Tips

Seeking the thrill of the Texas frontier? Come visit the Lone Star State for a crash course in Western heritage and hospitality. It boasts a diversity of terrains, from the Panhandle Plains to Gulf Coast to Big Bend Country, and tons of things to do from touring NASA’s Mission Control, sampling the indie music scene in Austin or exploring American landmarks like the Alamo. Whatever Southern flavor you’re looking for, Texas is sure to have it. Here’s a glimpse of Texas' top cities:

Houston

Houston, all systems are go. To launch off your visit, explore the world-famous Space Center, home to NASA’s Mission Control. The center features astronauts training for the International Space Station, a behind-the-scenes-look into deep-space missions and the latest pivotal technologies in the exploration of Mars. You won’t be able to miss the Museum of Fine Arts, the largest in the Southwest, which for starters showcases two gallery buildings whose walls are covered in artwork from all over the world. The collections highlight pieces from Africa to Asia to Latin America, although it is best known for its European Impressionist paintings. Stay dry at the Downtown Aquarium as you step inside a 17th century Spanish shipwreck, learn about the Louisiana Swamp and stand in awe in front of the Sunken Temple of ancient Mayan civilization. The white tiger exhibit and Ferris wheel rides are also a must-see. Cap your evening off with a savory taste of Texas tacos at local favorites like Pistoleros on Westheimer Street.

Austin

As the capital of the Lone Star State, Austin is a hotbed for music and culture. If you’re here in October, be sure to check out the Austin City Limits festival. In March get blown away by South By Southwest (SXSW), a nonstop party of music, interactive displays and film festivals that takes place every spring. Without a doubt these fests are among the reasons Austin has been declared the “Live Music Capital of the World.” For local flavor the rest of the year, stop by Stubb’s Bar-B-Q for finger-lickin’ barbecue and musical acts that have featured artists like Cake, Ratatat as well as George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic. The Red River District is the place in town to hear indie and alternative sounds pouring out from the bars. With Ladybird Lake cutting through the heart of the city, there is biking and kayaking to be had. Riding through scenic paths along serene lakes on the Town Lake Hike-and-Bike Trail is a great way to get your bearings in this mix of college town and musical haven.

Dallas

The biggest urban arts district in the country can be found in Dallas. It is a 19-block spread of cultural rejuvenation that will leave your creative side drooling. If you haven’t had enough, carve a slice out of your day to visit the Irving Arts Center, which is a premier theater and outdoor sculpture garden. Keep the history reel running while you take a trip back in time at the Medieval Times Dinner and Tournament to watch knights joust. Your older kids will leaping with joy after a trip to the Zero Gravity Thrill Amusement Park. If you’re picturing a more relaxing time for you and your travel-mates, take a stroll through the breathtaking Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Gardens, which was ranked the 2013 “Top Ten Botanical Gardens in the U.S.” by the Travel Channel. Top it all off with some tasty treats at Dallas by Chocolate and Dallas Bites for unbelievable chocolate and Bar-B-Q burgers.

San Antonio

As Texas’ (arguably) second-biggest city behind Houston, San Antonio has plenty to offer. Tour through the legendary Alamo, lose yourself amidst the peaceful San Antonio Botanical Gardens in Brackenridge Park or climb along the natural beauty of Enchanted Rock as you trace the footsteps where Native American warriors were killed - or at least so the legend goes. The River Walk is always a hit. It weaves across San Antonio River with dozens of restaurants, sidewalk cafes and street performers to make this Texas’ No. 1 attraction, according to U.S. News and World Report. Trying to get your John Wayne strut on? Fire away at San Antonio Western Shooting, a safe and excellent experience to handle real guns and bullets. No prior instruction is needed. If you need a break after your adrenaline shot to new Wild West heights, take a seat at the Majestic Theatre, a movie theater built in 1929 and a classic landmark of the city. It even has a domed ceiling covered with clouds and stars.

Fort Worth

Put on your cowboy boots - or at least pick some up - because Fort Worth prides itself on its Western heritage. Check out the Texas Civil War Museum that displays the largest private Civil War collection west of the Mississippi. Country music stars perform onstage at Billy Bob’s Texas, the largest honky tonk in the world. Kids will love the Fort Worth Zoo, a superb destination for the whole family to catch a glimpse at lions and monkeys. If you want a legitimate reason to say “it’s not my first rodeo,” head down to the Cowtown Coliseum on the weekend to watch the rides of lifetime. For shoppers, Fort Worth has everything from authentic Western gear to modern shops for every budget. After grabbing a few gifts, hit the Cantina Laredo for delicious Mexico City-style food, or Del Frisco Double Eagle for a juicy steak. Swing by the Fort, it’s worth it.

Discover your rugged side in the Wild West, where Texas hospitality lives on.
