South Padre Island is one of the most famous areas for bird watching in the US and there is a new birding sanctuary about 2 miles from the house. The lot next door belongs to this property and has a well kept lawn area to spread out on as well as the back portion maintained with native trees that the birds love. Aside from the birding sanctuary this one of the best places on the Island to view the birds during migration.
Great Golf is only a 20 min. drive at South Padre Island Golf Club and boarders the bay. There are several others within an hours drive.
Walking,Riding and shelling for miles on the Gulf Coast.
Be ready to wear yourselves out with all the things to do here. Or just kick back at the house with a book on the balcony/porch and feel the warm summer breeze while looking at the beautiful view of the bay.

My wife and I live in Tahoe city calif. I am a building contractor and she is a ski race coach. We drive to S.P.I. at least twice a year and bring our current Black Lab Cody, Three others before him. We have both ski raced for a long time and enjoy going to the island as much as possible.
Gary and Donna Collignon purchased this house in 1997
We love to windsurf and be by the ocean and water and also be warm.
We enjoy staying at home and having a glass of wine while watching the sunset. We love to cook and eat at home. The yard is beautiful and full of palm trees and tropical foliage.
We enjoyed staying at this beautiful house. Cannot say enough good things about this property. House is absolutely gorgeous. Neighborhood very quiet. Having the bikes and kayaks made our vacation that much better. Would definitely stay here again. Only thing is I would want to stay longer. Linda S.
We enjoyed our family getaway. They had Kayaks and Bikes for us to use, which was fantastic... you didn't have to spend more money on rentals.
The only reason that this rental property didn't receive 5 STARS from us, was because it took us 30 mins to gain entry and another 20 mins to secure the property when we left. The lock box was very corroded and even after spraying it with WD and bringing into the house out of the elements, it was very difficult to put back when we left. We were very thankful that there was a neighbor that looks after the property and she had difficulty as well, but finally opened the lock box. Also, we called and left Gary and his wife messages about the problems we were having and they did call back rather quickly...
So after gaining access to the property, we were pleasantly please with the house. The house was very clean with plenty of furniture. It is a pretty quick street for SPI, so it was nice to step away from the busy Island life when we came back to the house after a fun day at the beach. The access to the bay is very close and the beach is within walking distance. We really enjoyed our stay and needed the relaxation time. Thank you and we would love to stay at this house again when we return to SPI.
Although the weather did not cooperate (rain every day), the house was immaculate and better than the pictures indicated. The neighborhood is very nice and very quiet. The kitchen was fully stocked with anything you need to cook and serve dinner for a group. Plenty of activities within walking distance, including the beach a short walk or run. While we didn't have an opportunity to use the kayaks or bikes, we hope to come back at another time. We definitely found our home away from home at SPI.
I probably shouldn't share this but this property/house is So much more amazing in person! The pictures of this home don't do it justice. The home is very comfortably decorated and extremely tidy. What a relief to come home to this every afternoon! The property had everything we could want which made it so convenient. Two of those conveniences we used daily were the beach bikes and the kayak. (not having to rent these saved us a bunch of money and made the FUN so much easier). Our family has stayed three other times on South Padre Island in other places. This house and it's location is by far the best! We hope to stay here again in the near future! Thank you Gary and Donna for sharing your amazing home with us for a week. Book this house......you won't regret it!
This was a great home for our family during our SPI stay. We had my family of four plus my parents and the house was perfect!! The house and kitchen was fully stocked with the exception of wash cloths. Not sure if we overlooked them or they just didn't have them. We bought our own when we arrived so no worries. This is a pet friendly house but no previous pet odor. Our dog enjoyed the stay as well. :) The outside shower to wash the sand off was a HUGE help. The garage is stocked with many beach items not even listed in addition to the bikes and kayaks. This owner wants to make sure that entertainment is not an issue while staying at his home. This is a great, safe neighborhood and even met a couple of neighbors while there. Everything is close by and and the beach is a short drive away (I recommend beach access #3) and the Sea Turtle Rescue Center is highly recommended with a donation only admission.
Only two slight recommendations/complaints:
1. There is only one TV in the house. None in the bedrooms. Not that anyone goes to the beach to watch TV but to unwind at night, a TV would be nice in the rooms.
2. The tree in the front yard that hangs over the driveway drips sap over your car which is annoying. Plus it blocks the wind from blowing on the upstairs deck some. In my opinion, the tree could go and it wouldn't affect anything.
Other than those 2 things and the only reason I'm giving it 4 stars, this is a great house and would definitely go back.
Here's what to do in SPI -Wind surfing, Kite boarding, Surfing, Bird watching, Stand up paddle boarding, Bone Fishing , Bike riding the Island and Running on the beach, you can go for miles!. Plenty of bars and restaurants on the ocean. Restaurants and a movie theater within walking distance. There is also a Turtle Rescue a mile down the road from the house.
