**As the owners of this relaxing beach getaway, please accept our warmest welcome to South Padre Island! Feel free to contact us with any questions you may have! - The Bristers**

Our Beachfront Condo...

Take in fantastic ocean views and sounds from this completely remodeled/upgraded condominium! Nestled on a beautiful, white sandy beach that stretches as far as the eye can see, our La Internacional condo can be your getaway. You will be just steps away from ocean breezes, transparent blue waters and sand between your toes… the ideal setting for your South Padre Island stay! With on-site management, laundry facilities, heated pool, and hot tub, as well as free on-site parking, La Internacional is the perfect starting point for your adventures.

And don’t worry about stairs… the ELEVATOR will deliver you and your belongings to our comfortable second floor condo. Step inside and relax. Drop off your luggage in the bedroom, with its queen & double beds, dresser/mirror, nightstand, and flat screen TV, all in a stylish island theme. As you pass the remodeled bathroom, you’ll notice the arched, inset mirror surrounded by beautiful tile, as well as the spacious tile walk-in shower. With just a couple of steps you find the living area, and the beachfront ocean view you’d hoped for. A sofa (w/comfortable pullout bed), two soft chairs, artwork, and two classic white bookshelves continue the Tommy Bahama theme. A flat screen TV with cable also provided.

Step out onto your private balcony and enjoy the view and coastal breeze for a while. Once back inside, you will find the dining area to your left, plus additional seating at the bar. Past the bar awaits the renovated kitchen, featuring granite tile countertops, tile backsplash, and upgraded cabinetry. Microwave, fridge, dishwasher, pots, pans, and cooking utensils provided.

Enjoy a sunrise breakfast… or cap your day (and plan your evening out!) while taking drinks on the balcony.

In the morning, when you realize that it wasn’t all just a dream, you smile, because the beach is just outside your window... and soon you will feel the sand between your toes again!

About Scott & Trudy Brister

Beachgoers by heart, we find ourselves drawn to South Padre Island over and over again. We love spending hours on the beach every time we visit our home away from home! Our boys find endless entertainment building sand castles, swimming, fishing, and discovering numerous sea creatures... while we relax and soak up the sun, taking a swim to cool off whenever we like. You won't be disappointed in the white sand beach and sparkling blue waters that we have fallen in love with...

Scott & Trudy Brister purchased this condo in 2012

Why Scott & Trudy Brister chose Gulf Coast

This condominium is right on the beach, has a private balcony, and has been remodeled as noted in the description. On our first night, we knew we wanted to make this our island getaway. We loved everything about the condo and the wonderful view. Even without words, the pictures can tell you all you need to know. And the beach really is quite stunning. We wish we were there right now...

What makes this condo unique

You can't find a better beach destination in Texas than South Padre Island. Add to that the central location of La Internacional and all of the things you'd expect in a tropical destination, including tours, shopping, parasailing, windsurfing, fishing, scuba, and a selection of excellent restaurants and entertainment... All of which can be reached by walking or a short drive. Right next door is one of the most enjoyable places on the island to join friends for a tropical beverage with a view, the Wanna Wanna Bar and Grill. Schlitterbahn Water Park is a short drive away as well.

Great location--2 minutes from beach!!

  • 4 of 5

This condo is very nicely decorated with updates throughout. The view is fantastic-- even better than picture. The walkin shower was awesome and kitchen was ok. The dishwasher did not work but owner offered to bring a new one while we were there. He also offered to bring a new queen mattress for bedroom. The sleeper desperately needed new mattress as well. This condo could only accommodate 6 people if 3 were children. My family was my adult daughter and grandaughter, 13 year old grandson and 18 month old granddaughter. The 13 year old slept on air bed while adult girl slept on sofa-- not bed. The Brister's were responsive and island contact always answered phone. The building was clean and beautifully landscaped. The pool and hot tub were spotless. I liked being able to walk back and forth from condo to beachThe laundry facility was close to wash towels. It would have been nice to get clean towels delivered. I would stay here again just to be so close to beach and other facilities....coffee cafe, dollar store, grocery store. Thanks Bristers.

Small, cozy, cute with beautiful view of the ocean.

  • 4 of 5

The building looks somewhat old but the apartment is nicely updated. It's a bit small but very cute. The bathroom is nice & the shower is spacious. The kitchen is well equipped with many pots, pans, dish soap etc. The view is beautiful as you are right on the beach. If you forget something you can just walk up to the room which was very convenient. There is no bbq pit on the premises. A mat would be helpful to wipe off the sand from our feet. I loved sitting on the balcony during the early mornings & evenings to enjoy the beautiful view, breeze and sounds of the waves. Thank you very much for having us & I would definitely go back.....God bless.
