About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, Accommodates 4 adults comfortably, Full Kitchen, Beachfront

RELAX! Start your day with a cup of fresh brewed coffee on your private balcony enjoying the beautiful sunrise over the Gulf of Mexico. If you prefer to sleep-in, just draw the room darkening drapes before bedtime, you can open the sliding glass doors and let the soothing sound of the surf and the scent of fresh salt air lull you to sleep.

BE COMFORTABLE! The bedroom is furnished with a queen size bed with memory foam mattress and a wall mounted flat screen TV. On one side of the living area you’ll find a queen size sleeper-sofa. On the other side of the room is a standard size sleeper-sofa, both sofas have Posturepedic mattresses. We have two mattress toppers in the closet for additional comfort.

SWIM, SUN AND PLAY! Just outside the back of our building is the newly remodeled and year-round heated pool and spa. On to the beach! South Padre Island (SPI) boasts some of the cleanest beaches in the state of Texas and to get on the beach you only need to walk through the gate, it’s that close.

EAT POOLSIDE! There are three BBQ /picnic areas right next to the pool, spa, and beach.

STAY SAFE! The Aquarius is a gated building, staffed with a friendly and professional management team who are available to you 24/7. The building offers free parking, a laundry room, a small fitness room and separate women’s and men’s sauna rooms.

GET OUT AND ABOUT! Conveniently located in the heart of SPI you’ll be a short walking distance to shopping, entertainment and great bayside restaurants. There is no lack of things to do on SPI and in nearby areas for both adults and children; golf, parasailing, jet ski rental, waterpark, go carts, dolphin watch, bird watching, sea turtle exhibit, maritime museum and a lighthouse to mention just a few.

Date of Stay

April 22,2 016

Unbelievable stay! I wish I could attach my own photos of the balcony. It wraps around a corner with stunning views up and down both sides of the gulf. We were right up on the ocean. The 9th floor views are spectacular. The pool has a nice 8 foot deep end, and the hot tub is very hot with strong jets. We loved the natural surroundings. The beach was right there and the water was clear. My son and daughter each slept on a pull out sofa. My husband and I shared the bedroom. We cooked a full hot breakfast in the kitchen. It was a perfect setting for us to connect. This was truly a treasure at an amazing price.

Great place. Awesome view!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time. The condo, while small, is perfect for two people. The furnishings were super comfortable and the view was amazing! Our only complaint, if this really is a complaint, is that the condo could use wifi. Not a huge deal but it would be nice to speed up internet searches. But, like I said, it's not a huge deal. Thank you!!

Great Getaway

  • 5 of 5

View is tremendous.

Property grounds are beautiful.

Condo was clean and everything that we needed to make our stay enjoyable was provided.

Was sold on this property because of how the owners always responded to comments made by tenants.

If we owned something like this we would live there permanently.

Outstanding view, as described!!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Joe for your service and thank you both for being military friendly!! The view was as described and the condo was very nice. The bedroom was small but not an issue as you are not there to hang out in the bedroom all day. Staff was friendly, checkin easy and Pat was very responsive to emails.

One recommendation I would have is it would have been nice to have spatula for cooking eggs not just the wooden ones. Also some basic seasoning in the pantry and maybe some nonstick spray.

Would definitely recommend to others!!

About Patricia Cascio

Joe and Pat Cascio are retired entrepreneurs. They live in Austin, Texas. They love the beach and all SPI has to offer. They are grateful for the opportunity to provide an idyllic location for others to share a bit of paradise.

Patricia Cascio purchased this condo in 2007

Why Patricia Cascio chose South Padre Island

Once we visited the island we knew that it was the place for us. We chose the Aquarius because the property is well cared for and offers all the amenities we were seeking. The staff is courteous and professional and they take care of the place as if it were their own. When we walked into the condo and saw the view we were amazed.

What makes this condo unique

To enjoy a relaxing view of the Gulf of Mexico just step out on the balcony and see an unobstructed 180 degree view of the beach. The relaxing sound of the surf has a calming effect you will want to enjoy often. When you are in the mood for entertainment or great food you will find yourself in the heart of the action just a short distance outside the front door.
