A Joyful Seaside Christmas!

  • 5 of 5

This was an exceptional condo! Having recently been remodeled, it was beautifully decorated in a seaside theme that gave the condo a calm, tranquil feeling. We loved the light colored floor tile! Plus, we had an amazing view of the beach and ocean so even if we stayed inside we felt we were a part of it! The kitchen was well supplied and we were able to turn out batch after batch of Christmas cookies with no problems. There were plenty of cup towels, plates, bowls, kitchen utensils and etc. We lacked for nothing. My husband and I plus our two daughters and their spouses spent seven days in this condo and it was truly a joyous Christmas! We had a Christmas tree surrounded by presents but, even then, there was enough space so that at no time did we feel like we were walking over one another. The master bedroom was spacious and the other two bedrooms were more than adequate. Both were large with their own TVs. The bathrooms came with plenty of towels and washcloths. A bonus, if you have young children, is the outside closet which is supplied with beach chairs and toys. While this is a third floor condo, this did not matter to us as access to the beach was still easy. Plus, the view from this condo was far superior to those we have had in the past. We would definitely stay here again!

Very beautiful and recently remodeled condo in a perfect location with great views of the Gulf!

  • 4 of 5

My only few little gripes was that the wifi provided access codes did not work and there was no instructions for use of the Mr. Coffee, coffee maker. The Keurig coffee maker had mold inside of it so we couldn't use it either. Also, the master bathroom sink faucet has a steady leak. Other than that it was a wonderful condo and we had a great time.

Amazing place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

One of the best condos we have stayed at by far! Some necessities were there, so we were happy to donate some water toys as well!

Amazing condo

  • 5 of 5

The condo was exactly as described. We absolutely loved everything about it. It was clean, quiet, and comfortable. It had everything we needed during our stay. The sunrise view from the balcony was breathtaking. We were so close to the beach that I could watch my teenage daughters play on the beach without having to go out with them. The beach was not crowded at all. We had another set of condos on one side of us and nothing on the other. We saw staff cleaning the pool area every morning and never saw any trash anywhere on the grounds. The complex was well maintained and clean. I was afraid that we would hear noise from the water park but the noise was gone once we drove past the park. Don't forget to ask for discount tickets for Schlitterbahn! It saved us almost $30 a ticket. We loved the condo so much we really didn't want to leave. We hope we get to stay again next year. Thank you Terry and Patricia for answering all my questions and for allowing us to stay in your beautiful condo!!

Absolutely loved this condo!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this condo! We have stayed at many condos and this one is by far the best! The beds are super comfy and I was so surprised that the kitchen was stocked w everything you need including two coffee pots (one regular and one Keurig) and a crock pot! We had such a wonderful time! If I ever return to south padre we will stay here!
