Description of the South Padre Island house Rental

Soak up the sun on the beautiful sandy beaches of the Gulf of Mexico. Or you can enjoy the gorgeous South Padre weather lounging around our private pool. We strive to meet the highest standards for our guest's comfort and to meet all of your vacation expectations while staying in our family's private luxury ocean view home on the island.

This is by far the most modern uniquely designed, luxurious & beautifully furnished & decorated private family ocean view home anywhere. It is the ultimate family retreat with a glorious Gulf view on South Padre Island. For a view of the ocean, relax in the front, or stroll aft and enjoy the covered outdoor living space that accommodates everyone comfortably and leads to the tropical landscaped backyard private pool & heated jacuzzi spa with covered outdoor BBQ - dining area. The gourmet kitchen centers around a one of a kind, caste-in-place, concrete topped round table for 12 kitchen, Vulcan gas range and extra large commercial stainless appliances. Outdoor living space abounds on the Brazilian redwood promenade deck, & 2nd level observation deck with wet bar. Complete the experience on the ocean view rooftop patio with wet bar (great for viewing the Bay fireworks display every Friday night during the summer). 45 minute drive to 2 Mexico border shopping and sight-seeing areas.

Enjoy the best weather of the year here on South Padre Island during the months of September, October, November, & December. The water is much clearer and aqua blue, with the sand and air crisp and clean. The Island is less crowded with many events to attend and the temperature ranges in the 70's-80's.

The Wave's shuttle service stops in front of the house, private concierge & plenty of off street parking.

'Dos Suenos' is truly like nowhere else!

Very Comfortable, Great for Families

  • 5 of 5

Spacious beach house with fabulous kitchen and outdoor grill. Great floor plan - especially the private suite downstairs with small sitting room (and reading material). Also downstairs - an excellent bedroom set up for kids with eight bunk beds (two doubles). Outdoor storage containing boogie boards, umbrella, beach chairs, balls. Pool with lounge chairs is a nice alternative if not a beach goer. Surplus of beach towels available to use. Linens and bedding clean but could be updated. Friendly caretaker who responds quickly to requests / needs. Local baby sitters can be found through the conceirge at the Sheraton.

Family Vacation in Padre!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for a two-family (or even three!) vacation!!! It was spacious and modern, and had a great view of the ocean. Although not right on the beach, it was literally right across the street. Loved sitting out on the rocking chairs overlooking the street and the beach. Beautiful kitchen with up-to-date appliances. Would definitely rent this house again!

Unbeatable !!!!

  • 5 of 5

This lovely home far exceeded our expectations. We booked this for a family reunion and it didn't disappoint. We had way more people than the house could accommate so we got additional lodgings but still used this house for all meals and family gatherings. The entire place was so beautifully decorated and functional, top of the line kitchen appliances, stove, frig, cooking equipment, anything you needed for feeding large groups. There was a 'bunk room' that slept 10 people so it was a perfect spot for all our teens. We brought our own beach chairs, umbrellas, etc but the house provided these items also if needed. Loved the front deck with all the rocking chairs, seemed to be a favorite hangout for most of us in the evenings.

And the location could not have been ANY better!!! Wanna Wanna is one of our favorite hang outs and it is right across the street. The beach access was perfect too.

I could go on and on, will definitely try and make this an annual gathering place for get togethers.

Thank you Bill and Linda for opening your beautiful home !

Annual Customer Offshore Fishing & Golfing Trip

  • 5 of 5

I had the pleasure of booking this property for a large group of our customers and salesmen all within the oil and gas industry. The house was wonderful! It was exactly what we needed for the size we had. Lots of beds, close to the beach, pool and of course, close to the Wanna Wanna Bar! The only thing that we had an issue with was the water at the house. The plumber was there when we arrived and stayed about 3 hours replacing the water heater. When he left, we still had no hot water. He was called back the following day but did not fix the problem. We had cold water the whole 5 nights we were there. We decided not to call again after the plumber had already came twice. Bill was very quick in responding to any questions I had prior to the trip and responded quickly when we needed water assistance. We look forward to renting again with Bill and Linda next year for our annual Offshore fishing / golf trip with our customers. Thanks for a GREAT trip!
