Great vacation Condo

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just returned from our 3 night stay at Ben and Jens condo. The pics on Homeaway truly need to be updated, it was nicer in person. We had a great time! Close to beach and we had ever thing we needed. We watched fireworks in folding chairs sitting in the driveway of condo, couldn't have had a better view and no crowds! Beach access was maybe a 4 min walk! Great place to stay, thanks Ben and Jen! 👍

Great unit with Great location.

  • 4 of 5

There was 5 of us. Me my wife and 3 upper teens. Had plenty of room. Pictures are not a true representation of property. It looks better in person. Would have been an easy 5 stars except tv and internet went down and there are no board games for family activities. Also no big skillet for cooking. With 3 teens an 8 inch skillets makes for longer kitchen time. Other than those 2 minor things it would be a 5 star condo. Easy access to the beach and very clean upon arrival. Walking distance to restaurants and stores. Over all I highly recommend this unit.

Excellent Location

  • 5 of 5

This is easily the best located property I have stayed at South Padre Island. The condo is very well kept and has everything that you need to make your vacations feel like you're at home. The kitchen is well equipped with everything that you need to cook in case you don't want to eat out. If you want to go out for dinner, then Wingstop is just around the corner and Louie's Backyard is across the street.There is a Stripes Convenience Store two blocks a way so that you can buy anything that you may need. I didn't have to move my car at all during my stay as the access to the beach is also across the street. I'm very happy to have stayed here and would most definitely would like to stay here again.

The pool area was clean and there are leaf removal nets there in case there are some leaves inside the pool you can easily remove them yourself. The grill is quite small but serves its purpose.

Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here - the location is excellent! It is close in to town so walking distance to Gravity park, Louie's backyard and Wingstop, etc. You can see the Thursday/Friday fireworks from the driveway, they set them off straight across the street. I really liked the spacious patio off the master bedroom, enjoyed coffee out there in the morning while my teenagers slept. :) It is quite close to the beach, we were able to walk easily. Be forewarned however, there are are no large condos shading the beach access, so the sand there gets extremely hot. Like burning coals, nuclear hot. We burned our feet trying to make it in flip flops, so closed shoes are a must!

The only complaint I would have would be no 12" skillet, but we made do, and the common pool area could use a good cleaning, a little trash up under the bushes and full ashcan. But really this was a great place, condo was nice and clean and overall a great value.

Would stay here again definately.

Property was clean and easy access to beach and shops.

  • 3 of 5

Upon arrival we noticed the condo was not cooling. Made a call to property manager and she stated the air-condition unit is new and should be working well. About half hour later I called her again and she showed up within 15 min to assess the situation. She called A/C company and within half hour he was there. We were able to leave the condo without worrying about our luggage. A/C was fixed by the time we arrived back to condo late afternoon. Pool was dirty and murky looking. Needed salt tabs and more water, which my brother in law added on our 2nd day at condo.

Our last day at condo, cleaning lady showed up at 10am to clean condo. We were in the process of packing our truck and she stated we needed to check out by 10am. I reviewed email from VRBO and did not see a check out time. So we assumed check out was at noon like most hotels on the island. Very rare do i come across a hotel on the island with check out at 10am and If I do I will not book at that location. Cleaning lady was nice and we were out by 1030. We just felt rushed.

Condo was clean and had everything we needed, pots, pans, dish soap, towels and clean bed. I would stay at this condo again but only with the agreement of check out at noon.

Great getaway with my girls!

  • 4 of 5

My daughters and I really enjoyed staying at Jen & bens condo and plan to return in the future. Susie was a great host. The 1st day we had an issue with the AC that promptly got resolved. The condo was very private and came fully loaded with extras (washer & dryer, dim lighting..etc.). We especially loved the pool area and beautiful landscape surrounding it. The location was perfect. Short walking distance to the beach and literally right in front of Louie's where they set off fireworks from. We were also able to walk to many stores right from where we were staying.
