DO NOT RENT THIS CONDO!
We got our keys at the office and were told that a technician was there fixing the dishwasher. When we walked in the door it smelled as if something had died in the condo. The sink was full of something with black sludge on it. The dishwasher was full of the same stuff and it smelled as if something had died in it. The entire condo smelled the same. We called the office and were told that it would be fixed right away. We left and returned later. The sink was cleaned but the dishware was not and the condo smelled the same. The shower controls were full of mildew as was the shower door upper rail. Pillows smelled bad of body odor. Furniture was very old and dirty. We cleaned it up enough for our stay with one bottle of Clorox, Clorox wipes and lots Lysol. We complained to the office and were only given one days rent back. All the people in the family reunion refused to come visit the condo.
Great view - gently worn and in need of updating.
We're avid world travelers and have been to many S Padre locations. This unit looks better in the photos than in person. It could easily be upgraded in the bathroom where parts have metal or paint scraped away (toilet seat, shower door). It's an OK kind of place but not worth a premium price. My family also rented 2 other units in the same building for slightly less but MUCH more higher end and WELL maintained furnishings.
South Padre Rentals was great - extremely efficient and well managed company.
We totally enjoyed the great view and property.
The view is wonderful and we had a great time. This room was clean but can use some updating regarding the fixtures especially in the master bathroom. A fresh coat of paint, new sink and tub fixtures, fixing the celiing fan which was hanging by wires in the master bedroom, some new caulking in the bathrooms, and some updated furniture would go a long way in improving this otherwise wonderful property.
Beautiful place right on the beach
Great time fun in the sun. Road a banana boat ate great food
Excellent location!!! Would stay again.
Bedroom doors did not stay closed. Had to use our suitcase to keep the door closed. Hopefully that can be fixed because we would love to stay here again. Wish the kitchen was better equipped for cooking and prepping.
Great condo; Helpful owners; Lively place to stay!
Note: The review is for Beach House community and not Saida community, as my reservation was modified afterwards.
I was visiting South Padre Island for the first time and was using Homeaway.com for the first time. The user experience for the site was smooth; easy to find & navigate, and the site confirms that the customer will receive a response from the owners within 24 hours. In my case, I received the confirmation almost instantly.
The condo that I booked was managed by the owner through Padre Island Rentals. I had to visit their office to initial registration and receive my keys. I ran out into an issue at this point. The lady at he counter told me that the condo that I actually booked on the website couple of days ago has some bug issue and the owner has decided not to rent it anymore just a few hours before my arrival to the office. That was a bummer as I had picked one of the condos closest to the beach. They had moved me to a different condo community which may not necessarily be better or worse than what I had booked, but it certainly wasn't the closest to the beach and that was my major requirement. I mentioned to them that I should at least have been notified, if not asked, if my booking is being altered in anyway. They did not took the feedback negatively. In addition, I requested them to find me a condo other than the one they had moved me to, and the one which would be closer to the beach. It took the lady about a couple of calls to the owner and a few minutes of research, but she ended up giving me not only one, but two options according to my requirement. Her efforts are well appreciated, as well as owner's flexibility! Thanks a ton to them for saving my vacation. I got a condo on third or fourth floor at a property named "Beach House" and it was really close to the beach; about half a mile or lesser walk and you will be washing your feet in the sea water!! There was a swimming pool, too.
Now, as far as condominium goes, the apartment was well furnished, clean, sanitized, well-lit, and full of amenities/equipment. They had crockery, dish-washer, clean towels, a large flat-screen TV in the living room, medium sized flat-screen TV in each of the three bedrooms, Set top box on each TV, a few DVDs, patio furniture, nice bed-sheets and comforter, comfortable sofa-set, etc. The master bedroom and living room had windows and doors that open in the balcony with sea view.
Location was great and I would return back here! Recommended!!
