About the property

1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, Sleeps 4

Enjoy the sunrise over the beach and watch as the dolphins play in the morning surf. In the afternoon, watch the sunset over the entire island from your 9th floor balcony.

The bedroom features a queen bed with a new firm pillow top mattress covered in Egyptian cotton sheets. The bed is slightly raised for under bed luggage storage. By request, the living room features 3 matching futons. The full size kitchen is fully stocked.

*** Remodel March 2014- The entire unit was painted; ceiling and all walls. 5 new wall lights were added to the living room and bedroom and the kitchen light was upgraded. The bedroom furniture was replaced with white beach furniture. It looks wonderful and smells great. Check out the new photos. On order for the 2014 summer is additional new patio furniture!

Enjoy the fireworks! Sit on the beach at your condo around 9 to 9:30 PM and watch the fireworks being displayed 1/2 mile away.

Summer fireworks every weekend.

Note: As of 04/20/20156, Patricia Chapa, my property manager is moving to Japan with her family. Her husband is taking a position over there and we are very excited for her. Cathy Ramos is taking over for Patricia and we know she will do a great job too. The mailing address for deposits will be changing as well so look for an email with the new address. I hope this does not cause too much confusion.

terrific. Great space, great view, very comfortable

The building is well maintained. It is a luxury to have covered parking! We loved the huge patio and the gorgeous sunrise each morning. This condo was perfect and we hope to be able to book it again for the same time next year!

The best view I could ask for!

  • 5 of 5

The view is even more beautiful than the pictures show. Being on the 9th floor and looking out over the entire beach was great. The room was very clean, the entire condo felt like an apartment - already being furnished, having tableware, a coffee machine, internet, etc. all prepared. I guess the only complaint I have is the last people who were there didn't clean the dishes that well so we had to rewash them before using them for our meal, but that's not on the owner's fault IMO. Also, one of the beach chairs are broken, so we had to walk all the way back to the condo to pick a different chair from the closet. But it wasn't a big enough deal to complain, just a tip to the owner! I'd DEFINITELY stay here again the next time I visit South Padre! Well worth the money and time, I couldn't ask for better!

It was a wonderful property! The view was exceptional.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week! Loved the location, the view, beach access! Property was very nice considering how rundown it looks from the outside. The futons can use an update, a little uncomfortable. Other than that it was awesome. Having a kitchen was a money saver. I would totally come back and recommend.

Just a place to lay your head and shower.

Check in was at 3:00. We arrived a little early, but patiently waited because as stated the code for the door won't work. Finally we were able to get in to find the cleaning lady still cleaning. The room wasn't ready so we dumped our stuff and decided to leave. The entire week one of the elevators was out of order so the wait time for just 1 elevator was extremely long. We were on the 9th floor so taking the stairs was pretty miserable too! The room seemed to have a funky smell and the futons in the living area were pretty uncomfortable. The sheets and pillows had stains on them and most of the towels were dingy. The building was old and worn and you get what you pay for, but I felt like the condo didn't meet its full potential. It could use a good cleaning, a little updating and redecorating. The off center and crooked pictures on the wall drove me nuts. Not likely important to most! The rental did have more beach items than I expected, but I didn't use them cause I had brought my own. The a/c works extremely well! The view is perfect! The kitchen was well stocked so that helped a lot. Thankfully SPI has tons of things to do, so during the day we didn't spend much time in the condo.

Wonderful patio overlooking the beach and very clean, efficient condo

  • 5 of 5

The building is an older South Padre property. It has covered garage parking, hot tub, pool, air conditioned elevators and direct access to the beach with chairs/umbrellas to rent. This unit is on the 9th floor. Nice, clean property with kitchen, internet, TV's in bedroom and living area. Two sliding glass doors that lead onto big patio with GREAT view of ocean and beach. Nice outdoor furniture for relaxing. Sunrise view in the morning but patio is shaded by 2pm which is nice when you want to sit outside for the afternoon and evening. I love South Padre Island and I would recommend this condo. Management was very easy to deal with and coded door for access. Also, no hidden fees like many units on the island. Bring your own toiletries. Condo provided paper towels and toilet paper. Big refrigerator, regular coffee pot (filters provided but bring your own coffee) and Keurig machine on site along with microwave. Electronic key to access all gates on the property.
