**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 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...

Trudy Brister purchased this condo in 2012

Why Trudy Brister chose South Padre Island

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.

Fantastic View!

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful spot with a fantastic view! The balcony has seating so you can enjoy the ocean with your coffee or cocktails. The condo is decorated in a beach/jungle motif, which makes it fun and comfy at the same time. Great floorplan, everything conveniently placed. A well stocked kitchen. Plenty of dishes and silverware, so that you didn't have to do dishes everyday. Shampoos and soaps were supplied, along with a hairdryer, which made it nice not to have these items take space in the suitcase. The pool and hot tub were always clean and maintained. The check in and check out were super simple, along with obtaining the parking pass. I would recommend this place to anyone who wants a great value and a fantastic view!

Little piece of heaven

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this marvelous place on New Year's Eve; It's a small piece if paradise. Yes, the TV in the bedroom doesn't play anything but DVDs, but I didn't go there to watch movies, I went there to relax and that's exactly what I did. This place is cozy and right in front of the beach. It's only a few steps away from the famous Wanna Wanna restaurant, so It's very convenient. I'm sure I'll be back again, looking for the same place to rent. Loved it!

We were impressed with the view but not the condo. The condo needed updating and renovated.

  • 2 of 5

We could have overlooked the outdated furnishings if they were clean. Carpets were not vacuumed. Floors needed cleaned. Dishes were dirty. The bed sheets had hairs in them.

The kitchen needed work. It was so small you had to open the refrigerator to open the oven. Salt and pepper should be a minimum with a furnished room. You even get that at a hotel. There was none. If you like TV before bed be ready for a DVD. There is no cable in the bedroom. To top off the stay the last day as we were packing a German roach was walking on the bathroom ceiling.

The condo didn’t even seem like they had prepped for the next occupant.

Would I rent it again...No. would I recommend to friends No...

We have stayed at other BNB’s and they were great. The owners really need to put some TLC in their condo.

The reviews we read before we picked this property were very misleading. One thing they were correct about was the view. It was nice.

Owner's Response: ***We have addressed these concerns with our property manager and regret that any guest encountered such issues. Unfortunately, this guest did not contact us regarding their concerns, so we could not address them. This is very important because we want our guests to be happy. ***We do not understand some of the issues, such as the comment about the oven door, since we stay in to condo also and do not have this issue. The TV in the bedroom is not advertised on our webpage exactly because it is only for DVDs or connecting your own device and watching Netflix, etc. The TV in the living room does work, with cable channels. .As for our little friends, roaches will appear from time to time in these beach rentals, BUT if you stay and have an issue, PLEASE CONTACT US. We can only help if we are notified. Thank you for reading these reviews and considering our condo for your visit.

Everything thing we had hoped for and even more.

  • 5 of 5

The view from condo was exactly what we wanted. The condo itself was beautiful, clean and tastefully decorated as if to say Welcome to the beach.

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

This was the first time my husband and I decided to stay at a condo, and it was great! It had everything we needed, was nicely decorated, and the view was lovely. The beds were comfortable, which is huge for me. We cannot wait to go back!
