About the property

Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 3-6)

Monthly Rental Only. Video walk through located under calendar. This is a wonderful top floor end unit condo with Sunset Views and top end appliances and finishes. We only rent monthly and the Condo Bylaws strictly prohibit Spring Break Rentals. It is beautifully furnished, stainless steel Kenmore and GE appliances, fully tiled bathrooms with frame less glass doors, well equipped kitchen, with plenty of dishes for dinner parties.

This spacious condominium has a loft for 3rd bedroom with the largest floor plan top floor end unit. The view of the bay is breathtaking. We have motorized storm shutters on the deck which make it an outdoor room as well. The whole west wall is glass and you see water from floor to horizon, blue skies from horizon to ceiling. Looking south one sees the shoreline, migrating birds, Causeway, or looking west and north for the daily main event-the sunset, watch windsurfers colorful sails race over the water, all the way up the Bay towards Corpus Christie. We are directly on the Bay 2.9 miles from the Bridge with our own boat dock.

Have a boat? This is the place for world famous fishing. You can walk, jog or run to the beach! Schlitterbahn amusement park is close by. World class bird watching from the new Birding Center .5 mile north of the condo.

You will feel right at home with this well designed floor plan. Tierra Encantada as its name implies is a very enchanting friendly complex, not your typical resort packed with party goers, security fence recently installed. There are many regulars that return year after year. Many Homeowners live inland and escape to the island on the weekends.

A wonderful place to get away from it all and enjoy the Gulf Beaches. Please take a video tour located right above the still pictures in 'Additional info.

Take note:Boat may not be longer then 22 foot (HOA rule)

About Kathleen

We are both from warm tropical climates and currently live in the Mountains of Utah enjoying skiing and hiking. We hope you enjoy our island retreat as much as we do. Tierra Encantada is the perfect compliment to the Beautiful Wasatch Mountains of Utah.

Kathleen purchased this condo in 2003

Why Kathleen chose South Padre Island

We found South Padre Island to be a wonderful place to enjoy the Shore and enjoy our passions for windsurfing, boating, swimming, golfing, biking and beach combing. Tierra Encantada provides for all our pleasures by the Shore.

What makes this condo unique

Boat dock and fish cleaning station just down stairs. Unobstructed views of the Bay from North of the Convention Center to the Bridge and Beyond. Onsite swimming pool with sauna, whirlpool, Gulf beach access 2 blocks away. Tierra Encantada is a serene residential condo complex. After a day at the beach one can enjoy the sunset over the bay right from your own balcony. During migration season the variety of birds will amaze you. One can fish from the dock, underwater lights are provided to attract a prize winner or bring your boat along. Windsurf Inc. is right next door for those who want to take lessons or rent gear. There is an endless supply of nighttime entertainment and restaurants to finish off your day.

Excellent Time had by all

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for sharing your beautiful condo with us. The pictures don't do it justice. My husband and I truly enjoyed watching the sunset from the kitchen, dining and living rooms. The ability to step outside the condo and take the boat for a ride or a day of fishing was truly delightful. The fully stocked kitchen was the best we have seen on the island. We did not lack for anything while here. We look forward to coming back again soon.

Wonderful Winter

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in this wonderful unit for five months last winter. It is a beautiful unit, classy and comfortable. You have it all. It is quiet, yet something to watch all the time from inside or out of unit you have a view of the bay. From there you can watch wind surfers, fisherman, kite boards, party cruises, pelican's, dolphins,(and hear them from balcony), fish jumping out of the water. Always entertainment of some kind. If you get tired of that, you are in walking distance of restaurants, bars, and shopping.

If it wasn't for my husbands health issues would be back there this coming winter. For the lucky people that are, enjoy!

Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for five days and we loved the location close to the bay and not far from the beach. Its also close to windsurfing and the local shops and restaurants. The unit is newly furnished with modern appliances. It has great views of the sunset over the Bay.
