Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

Don't let the first impression fool you. The inside is clean, updated, and modern. The location couldn't be better. Would definitely rent again!

Owner's Response: Mirta, It was such a pleasure to have you all stay here at The Starfish Beach House Unit #2. I hope that all of you ladies will come back and visit us again and stay longer the next time. I appreciate your honest review. This beach house is one of the few with the original architectural design here on the Island. We are working with the SPI Historic Committee to see how we can best preserve this beach house look, but still have curb appeal for our modern visitors wanting to stay in an original "beach house" on South Padre Island. Like you stated, "the inside is clean, updated and modern". I sure hope we will be able to capture the look of the days gone by with the future upgrades to the outside. Thank you so much! Leslie

Owner not friendly

  • 1 of 5

If you are going to have visitors DO NOT stay here! The owner was very rude and did not want for us go have any visitors. She stopped by the place around 10pm to check in on us and wanted our visitors to leave. We told her that they would not be staying but insisted that it was late and that they had to leave. She said she would be back in an hour to check in on us again. This did not make us feel comfortable and felt like we were always being watched. Also there are alot of cockroaches in the kitchen. You can see them crawling in the counters and it is disgusting. Although it is in a good location, we will never stay there again. We did not feel comfortable.

Owner's Response: Do NOT rent to these people and all of their friends that will show up to party!! Maria, The Starfish Beach House is NOT a "party house" where you can rent for one night over a holiday weekend (contract stated that it was for 2 Adults and 2 Children for Easter) and then invite as many people as you see fit to come over and use this rental as a home base for all of your friends to use (all the while using the amenities). I was called by the neighbors about the noise and the multitude of cars that were parked on the property and that it was late and they were wanting to get their young children to sleep. As for your other comment, this property is on a scheduled pest control contract. It makes me wonder why your didn't immediately call and let us know that there was a problem. It is my guess that it would have been hard to have backed up the claim up.

Perfect Place for Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This place was located perfectly near the beach you can hear and see it from the porch. The boardwalk is also walking distance making the beach access very quick and easy.

Great space and room. Clean and comfy. We made amazing memories here and will come back again!

The owner, Lisa is super nice and quick to reply to any questions or needs.
