Located on desirable Gulf Boulevard, this breezy Key West style beach house offers wide views of the beach from the private balcony. A porch swing and rocking chairs make it the perfect place to relax after beach time.  Beach access is directly across the street.

Inside, the house is richly finished with marble floors, granite counters, and plush, upscale furnishings.  An LCD or plasma television is in every bedroom, as well as the den.  The master bathroom has a jetted tub.  The kitchen is fully equipped.  The unit is equipped with a washer and dryer.  All linens are provided.

Conveniently located in the center of South Padre Island, it is walking distance to outdoor entertainment (great for teens), restaurants, and even the island grocery store.  Across the street is the shuttle stop for the FREE  Island shuttle (another teen favorite).

Four guests can sleep comfortably as shown.   The sofa is equipped with a queen sleeper, for an additional $30/night per guest. Well-behaved pets are accepted with owner's approval for $75.

Provided are beach chairs, beach umbrellas, beach towels, sand toys, boogie boards, and more. Downstairs is an outdoor shower to rinse sand after beach time.

About Lynn Mauer

During my "growing up" years, I was fortunate to live in some of the prettiest beaches in America and abroad. My father was career Navy, which means the water or beach was almost always nearby.

I absolutely love having vacationers stay at my beach house! Hearing laughter from happy guests is music.

Lynn Mauer purchased this house in 2007

Why Lynn Mauer chose Gulf Coast

Perfect property. It is all about location.

What makes this house unique

This is one of the prettiest properties on Gulf Boulevard. The beach access is directly across the street. Why come to the beach if you can't hear the waves at night?

Loved this family rental!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful rental, convenient location within a short walking distance from the beach. I was grateful that we could borrow foldable chairs, umbrellas, sand toys, and boards- for fun on the beach! I especially loved swinging and chatting on the porch! We will return!!

Everything we imagined and more.

  • 5 of 5

The beach house is like the photo. It's close to the beach. Beach gear was provided and was truly enjoyed. The jacuzzi tub in the master was perfect for the end of the day. We loved having coffee on the patio. I plan on returning as soon as I can.

Property was wel maintained and very clean.

  • 5 of 5

Lynn and Kevin were very friendly and provided some great information on where to eat or things to do for activities. They kept to themselves but were always available to answer questions. This property is centrally located with easy beach access and walking distance to the grocery store.

Perfect, Great location, home for 2 months

  • 5 of 5

across from beach access, pretty 2 bedroom rental had everything we needed. We recommend this to any couple or family. It was within walking distance of grocery, beach, restaurants. The owner is accommodating and helpful. Captain Kevin can find fish for you and together they made this home for us. We would never stay anywhere else on the island
