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.

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 Gulf Coast

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.

A beautiful view!

  • 5 of 5

We spent Thanksgiving in this condo and loved every second. The condo faces the ocean, and views do not get any better than this! It is right on the beach, which delighted our two boys (ages 7 and 2) and us! We had all we needed in the kitchen and bedrooms. The kids slept in the bedroom, and we used the pull-out sofas. A very nice pool and hot tub are on the property. It was quiet and peaceful. The building is a bit older but was well suited for our purposes. We explored the island and recommend the sea turtle rescue center. Great restaurants are also nearby. We would love to spend every Thanksgiving at the Aquarius!

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!!

Ladies 40th Birthday Trip

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying at Aquarius. The property description was accurate. Everything in the condo was clean and maintained well. Pat provided excellent customer service. The view was phenomenal. We walked to nearby restaurants and shopping. We enjoyed the party boat cruise to watch the fireworks. The best part was walking out the back of the property with the beautiful beach accessible anytime. Consider the 9th floor balcony when bringing small children. This property was perfect for adults. I would definitely recommend this place and would stay here again!

Beautiful view, clean condo, some misleading statements on this page

  • 3 of 5

Overall it was a great trip - this 9th floor condo had a great view of the Gulf and was very clean. Had typical kitchen appliances and items to cook food, two tv's with basic cable, and the expected for a condo on HomeAway.

Not so good

- no internet/wifi - webpage said there was internet, when you hover it says in small print that its on the 1st floor

- "queen size bed with memory foam mattress" - more like 6 inch memory foam pad on a box spring

-toaster that you had to hold down to cook toast/bagels in the morning

-"gym" - asking the front staff they laughed when I asked where the gym was and suggest that I go to a place down the road

Owner's Response: I am so glad that you liked the condo and enjoyed your time on South Padre Island. The island is such a casual environment that we have tried to make our space a little more upscale. It is so difficult to find an affordable place right on the beach that we decided to overlook the flaws of the building and do our best to make the condo as nice as possible. In regard to the issues you mentioned, we not only appreciate your feedback, but we have also done something about it. Preferring a walk on the beach for exercise or relaxation I've never visited the spa or gym. Since we live several miles away and we can't get there to reset a modem if it goes out during a storm, we haven't figured out how to provide access to our renters.. Since reading your comments we edited our listing today and have deleted mention of the gym, spa and free Wi-Fi.

Great vacation and a great place to stay .

  • 4 of 5

Very beautiful view and pleasant owners to work with. Replied to all questions right away and were very responsive.

Nice place overall. Beautiful "killer view" from condo! I loved waking up and having my coffee on the balcony, watching the sun rise! Condo owners were super nice, pleasant and informative!

Property grounds are pretty, but inside amenities listed need some work, ie "workout room and dry sauna"

Sauna was old, but its an old building.

I did not understand the purpose for the $5 extra per person for wrist bands as no one ever was around to check and the beach gate was left open most nights.

Overall a nice place and a great condo! We really enjoyed the beach and the view from the condo . Working with the owners of this condo was a breeze!

Thank you Pat for sharing your place!
