Family vacation in South Padre

  • 5 of 5

After 11 years my family decided to head back to South Padre for our family vacation and son's high school graduation trip. I spent quite a few weeks searching for a house that would sleep at least 12 people, accept my little doggy, had a pool and fit my budget. We ended up choosing this house on Mars. Melinda responded quickly to my inquiry and answered all questions. Once booked she still responded to any questions I had. Travelling from Louisiana, we decided to drive over night which would put us arriving on the island very early in the morning on the day we were to check in. Melinda was very kind and accommodated my special request to check in early. The house is beautiful and spacious. My family had plenty of room. The kitchen is fully stocked so we had no problems cooking big breakfasts and dinners. My favorite spot was the balcony which is located right off of the living room on the 2nd floor. The pool is not very big but we made use of it several times a day and was fine for cooling off and letting the grandchildren play. The beach is about 1/2 block away. The island is everything we remember. So tropical and you feel like you are in Mexico. We have decided to make South Padre our yearly beach vacation spot. I will definitely look this house up again!

A great condo! Great location!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time in a VRBO and WOW it was EVERYTHING we expected and more. The owners were so easy and pleasant to work with.

The condo was clean, furnished nicely and the kitchen was well equipped to cook for our family of 7 adults and 4 children. Lots of room, bedrooms were comfortable and it was so nice to have a bathroom on each of the 3 floors. Air conditioner kept the house cool and comfortable.

The pool was private and the whole family enjoyed the pool with picnic table, lots of seating and grill in the backyard , also the deck was one floor up, great for viewing pool and also great place for viewing Friday night fireworks.

The beach is so close. 3-5 minute walk and you are there. sand is so soft. Great for sand castles.

Our west Texas family of 11; from ages 11 months to 82 enjoyed our week in your home. Thank you again!

Best VRBO I have ever stayed in

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed in tons of VRBO's across the United States and there is not one that can hold a candle to this one. The owners were so easy to wok with, the home was so clean, one of the best stocked kitchens that I have seen, and it is close to everything. We loved the pool and were so pleased with everything in the house. It was so spacious and the beds were very comfortable. There was enough room for everyone. This was truly one of the best vacations I have ever been on and the home helped us relax. Thank you for such a great experience, we are so grateful that we had such a wonderful place to stay.

Fun Trip

  • 4 of 5

The home was easy to find and was a short walk to the beach like we hoped. It was clean and nicely decorated. We had a few problems but the owner was very willing to make them right. We enjoyed cooking in the kitchen and grilling out back. We went to Blackbeard's to eat our first night on the Island and received good food and service. For activities, besides the beach, we went bay fishing twice, fished the pier, rode go-karts, went to the turtle place, shopped for souvenirs and visited the national seashore. We did not use the pool. Only downside is that the bottom level of this three story home where all the bunk beds are pictured is not an air conditioned space. They provide a fan to blow air from the upper areas. It was not too uncomfortable down there, maybe like 78 degrees. Overall, we enjoyed our trip and the owners were very accommodating. I would tell friends about this property if they were traveling to South Padre.

WOWZA! This is paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Simply seeing your home on the website as I post this review makes me smile whilst the stress leaves my body! We had such a delightful time in South Padre. Your home is absolutely comfortable and suited our needs perfectly. We arrived after surviving the busy season of our self employment. After working continual 18 hour days, we were exhausted and raggedy! Immediately we popped a beer and sat in the moonlight, toes in the pool... vacation had started! Your hospitality and ambiance was impeccable. During our stay, we were thrilled with the close proximity to the beach. We spent countless hours exploring the island and took advantage of the recommendation book you provided. One of our highlights was catching the Wave to the Pearl for an extensive seafood buffet. We dined on the beach and walked home along the shore. As we were enjoying our stroll, a magnificent fireworks display was launched! Happily we discovered this is routine every Friday and Saturday night...magical! We also LOVED the Sea Turtle Rescue Center so much our friends and family all received adopted turtles for Christmas. And I'll be here all night if I start on the amazing bird watching... Thank you so much for being part of this fabulous experience!
