In 2000, South Padre Island was named the 7th best beach in the United States of America by the Surfrider Foundation, whom based it on water quality, sand softness, and wildlife. South Padre Island was the only Texan beach to make the top 10 and earned marks for its mouth savoring restaurants. So come to stay with us and discover South Padre Island today!

Kiteboard, windsurf, build sandcastles, or go horseback riding on the beautiful beach directly outside your door! Watch the dolphins play in the waves outside you house or charter a boat and cruise around the tropical island. Go fishing or deep sea fishing in the place known as Texas's hottest fishing spot, and drop your line from a boat, a pier, or cast out into the surf. Whiting, drum, flounder, trout, redfish, snapper, kingfish, wahoo, tuna, marlin, and sailfish are just a few types of fishes that you can reel in.

Some great alternatives for the water are golfing and playing tennis. For those nature lovers, visit the Laguna Atascosa National Wildlife Refuge, a 45,000-acre federal preserve for wildlife and bird watching, and learn more about these creatures through exhibits and sightings in their natural habitats. For the more thrill seeker, try skydiving and see the island from a bird's eye view.

We purchased the house in Dec 2010 and have spent 3 years upgrading it. New this year is the new kitchen with Granite counter tops. We hope you enjoy it!

About Carol Bolstad

My husband and I grew up on the beach in Florida and California. Our passion for windsurfing brought us to the island 30 years ago and now the beach and kiteboarding keeps us coming back every year. We travel from the Portland, Oregon area to spend the winter in South Padre because of its warm winter climate and beautiful sailing.

Carol Bolstad purchased this house in 2010

Why Carol Bolstad chose South Padre Island

After owning a condo a few blocks away, we fell in love with the location and style of this home. In December 2010 we purchased the home and have done several upgrades to it. Located on the less crowded side of the island, it has a beautiful beach and the island charm. Waking up to the sunrise over the ocean and beach and watching the dolphins surf the waves is amazing. We know you'll love it as much as we do!

What makes this house unique

The morning sunrise view from the decks over the ocean is wonderful. In the evening, enjoy the BBQ grill, pool, and hot tub while watching the sunset. In walking distance are several restaurants and shops. The free shuttle bus passes in front of the house twice an hour. And it is also located at the end of the bicycle/pedestrian path so we have several bicycles for your use in the garage.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We had a great time, a little cold, but we enjoyed the beach very much.

Great Vacation with the family

  • 5 of 5

My family of 4 rented this property for a week and it exceeded our expectations. The pool was great, the location was even better. Crossed the street to the beach and enjoyed the ocean everyday. Property was clean, and had everything that we could want. As a first time home renter, I was amazed at the entire process...counldn't have been any better. We will stay here again on our next trip to SPI.

Best kept secret on the island!

  • 5 of 5

Comfortable beds, great amenities, and the best location on the island. The pool and the hot tub are so refreshing after a long day. The balcony in the morning with a cup of coffee watching the sunrise out of the gulf with an unobstructed view. Spectacular! This place is second to none. This was our second time to stay here, and we will be back for many more. Great place for a family vacation!

The house was perfect for a large family with children

  • 4 of 5

The beds were very comfortable and obviously new. We did have an AC issue but the owner immediately took care of the problem. One of the downstairs queen bedrooms we couldn't get the tv to work. The tiki bedroom was a huge hit with the kids.

I have to say that it was obvious that the garage had been transformed in to extra bedrooms and there was a step up to the laundry and tiki bedroom that caused many of us to trip and fall. Definantly not ADA approved. Lots of stairs everywhere.

Pool was the best! Beach access was wonderful.

We went at the middle of June and paid $5,500. I feel that was higher than the house was worth but over all it was a good vacation

Family vacation

  • 5 of 5

The property manager and owner were great to work with. The house was excellent for our needs and had the most fully stocked kitchen anyone could ask for. The easy access to the beach was great for the kids and the adults. The bikes were used daily, along with the wagon to haul stuff back and forth to the beach. After a full day at the beach the backyard pool was a relaxing place to rest and visit with the family. All the rooms had plenty of space and the king beds were very comfortable. The extra refrigerator downstairs was great for keeping drinks for everyone. Our family fully enjoyed out stay and are already planning our trip for next year. We have stayed in many places, but this house exceeds all others. Looking forward to staying here again.

Best Deal in Padre

  • 5 of 5

Patricia was easy to work with and always responsive. The house was clean and cool when we got there. The kitchen was fully stocked. The house came with the Bikes, a wagon to drag out stuff down to the beach, beach chairs pool toys, etc.

Recs I would make:

1. The Housekeeper showed up as we were unloading to unload the clean towels, lawn guy came to mow/landscape front and back, And then the pool guy came and had out friend get out so he could clean and shock the pool. These things could have easily been taken care of the day before we arrived so that it did not impede on us enjoying the house.

2. Check in was 3pm, that's normal. Check out was 10am. That's not. Give people at least until noon to clean up and get out.

3. The diving board is very unique, but it gets slippery. I would remedy this.

4. House instructions would be great, how to turn on the outside shower, how to work the TV, etc.

Over all we would totally recommend this place to friends and family and definitely consider coming back again. Thanks for a great trip!

Best Deal is South Padre

  • 5 of 5

The PM Patricia was super helpful easy to work with and always responsive. The house was clean and cool when we got there. Everything worked perfectly, the kitchen was fully stocked with all the pots, pans, plates, silverware you need. Mere steps from the beach. The house came with the Bikes, a wagon to drag out stuff down to the beach, beach chairs pool toys, etc.

Recs I would make:

1. The Housekeeper showed up as we were unloading to unload the clean towels and place in the room. No big deal. But then the lawn guy came to mow/landscape front and back. We were at the beach but it was a little inconvenient for those whom were using the pool area. And then the pool guy came and had out friend get out so he could clean and shock the pool which meant we couldn't get back in for an entire hour. I feel like these things could have easily been taken care of the day before we arrived so that it did not impede on us enjoying the house.

2. Check in was 3pm, that's normal. Check out was 10am. That's not. Give people at least until noon to clean up and get out.

3. The diving board is very unique, but it gets slippery. I would put some sort of grip strip tape or something to remedy this.

4. House instructions would be great, how to turn on the outside shower, how to work the TV, etc.

Over all we would totally recommend this place to friends and family and definitely consider coming back again. Thanks for a great trip!
