15 Miles
Nearest Golf
Laguna Vista, 'South Padre Golf Course'

Car: Recommended

The Rio Grande Valley is a tropical, fun place to visit. Our beautiful island has many restaurants and shops to visit. 30 miles away, in Brownsville, is a very nice zoo with many exhibits in a tropical setting. There are tours to Mexico, but I do not recommend going to Mexico at this time. It is not safe like it used to be. The island has a nice birding center and a sea turtle rescue center that's worth a visit. There is a small museum in Port Isabel and the light house to visit. Many private fishing guides are happy to take you out in the bay or gulf to fish. Dolphin Watch boats are also a popular activity. For hunters, there are private guides that can arrange hunting trips for you to go on. Of course it depends on the season as to what kind of hunts are available. Golf is available across the causeway bridge in Laguna Vista. There are other courses in Brownsville too. Mercedes is about 1 1/2 hrs. up the Valley. They have a large Outlet Store Mall. Harlingen has the new Bass Pro Shop that is an outing in itself. They have a restaurant, bowling and shopping all in one building! The more you explore, the more fun things you will find to do!


Manager info

Year Purchased: 1960

About: This duplex was built by our father in 1960. It was one of the first privately owned beach houses on the island. It was destroyed in hurricane Buelah in Sept., 1967. The family rebuilt the structure a little bigger and better in 1968 and have enjoyed many years of beach time with our family and friends.

Why South Padre Island, TX, USA:
We consider this our beach home. We want to rent to people who have the same attitude about our rental. It is not just a place with 4 walls to stay in at the beach. It has many personal touches and we appreciate renters treating it with respect as if it was their own beach house.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We are enjoying this house with the 5th generation! We had many fun times with our grandparents and now with our grandchildren. Our beach house is certainly not the new, high rise, condo that you could rent, but it is clean, cozy and gives you the classic beach house cottage experience. Most houses on our street are privately owned and many have permanent residents.
