Everything was fine, with exception of the internet service

  • 4 of 5

The property was as advertised. Make sure to bring all your own shampoo, body wash, etc as this was not supplied. The accommodations were comfortable, and the beach view was great. Loved the balcony in the evening! The one complaint was the internet. Though there was wifi supplied, it only kind of worked in the living room, and didn't work at all in the rest of the unit. We called tech support, who didn't call back until I called the property owner to ask about it. They then told me that it just wouldn't work with Apple products. Though this may not have been a big deal for most people, we had some work items that needed doing during our stay, and we couldn't get internet connection. The cell service was also poor, so we couldn't get online that way either. Overall a good stay, but if you require consistent online service, this may not be a good choice.

This place was great. The view is so wonderful.

  • 5 of 5

You can sit and see so much from the balcony. Everything you need is there. We loved having beach chair, towels, toys and umbrellas already there. They even thought about things for the dogs. We really hated having to leave. Our dog even pouted the 13 hour drive home. She loves laying on the balcony watching everybody. Can't wait to go back.

Fantastic getaway on the beach

  • 5 of 5

This comfortable little condo has a spectacular view of the beach and Gulf. There is plenty of comfy seating indoors and out, the bed was very comfortable, and the condo was very quiet for catching up on some sleep and relaxation. It overlooks a really nice section of beach which is super quick and easy to get to. The pool is perfect as well when the kids are done on the beach and want to swim and splash without the waves. We had a great time and will be back to this condo.

Directly on the beach, nice unit.

  • 4 of 5

The views up and down the beach can't be beat! Very clean and all linens, towels, etc were good quality and freshly laundered. OK for us, just a couple. Think it would be pretty close quarters for a family for more than a few days. Should be noted, no dishwasher and kitchen is very small. WiFi was o.k. other than for streaming video. Building and amenities all in good condition. Easy to walk to some shops and eateries.

Rooftop of Padre Island Brewing is a great spot for sunset. Even though it was closed for winter, they let us take our beverages up there and watch.
