About the property

This beautifully decorated, ground floor 3BR/2BA unit is a rare find.

Just 22 steps to the beach, this newly-decorated condominium is, for the first time, being offered to the rental market by its private owner. You'll find all the amenities including ample space for 8 guests featuring a living/dining area, fully appointed kitchen with walk-in pantry, master bedroom and bath at beach level and two quiet bedrooms sharing a full travertine bath. The master bedroom and living areas feature a walk-out porch with Adirondack chairs for some beach side relaxation. This unit is particularly unique because of its ground floor proximity to the board walk leading to the beach and its floor-to-ceiling windows which present you a constant and magnificent view of the dunes and beach shore line. At sunrise you’ll surely enjoy dune flowers as they emerge with each sunrise. The unit is fully digital with wireless internet and 3 internet enabled digital entertainment centers. A laundry room has a large load washer/dryer and beach toys are available in the owner's storage unit. Fabulous beds and linens will ensure you enjoy the most restful sleep possible. A quiet and beautiful pool and tennis courts are available for you use -- just steps away from your unit. Sea Vista is the southern most property on the island next to a protected marine preserve yet close to the best restaurants on the southern harbor. Fishing, dolphin and bird watching is within walking distance. There is a maximum occupancy of 8 persons with 2 automobiles allowed. SPI Permit 2015-448643

About Ed and Betty DeShields

Ed and Betty DeShields and their daughter Bess have been visiting South Padre Island for many years. We live in Dallas, Texas but love the island for all the memories it has made in our family.

Ed and Betty DeShields purchased this condo in 2013

Why Ed and Betty DeShields chose Gulf Coast

We've stayed in many properties throughout the years but Sea Vista is simply one of the finest properties on the island. Sea Vista is mostly owned by private owners so your stay is usually quiet and free from the masses that do not crowd our private beach. Management is attentive to your every need and all you have to do is ask if you need something.

What makes this condo unique

22 steps to the beach and directly on the ground floor. No elevators, corridors or lengthy walks will keep you from the beach. You will literally walk onto your lawn and patio directly from the beach. Gorgeously decorated and fully appointed with a full kitchen and bedding that ensure you will have a restful stay. Sea Vista is closest to the action, yet super-quiet without the crowds. Schlitterbaun water park is within walking distance as is two private tennis courts and pools. Maximum occupancy 8 persons, 2 automobiles.

Beautiful view of the ocean and excellent location!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a fantastic vacation! The condo was nicely furnished and decorated. We were close to good restaurants and amenities and the ocean was right outside our door! Our daughters loved the bedrooms, as well. We would love to return!

Awesome place, steps to beach, very accommodating and great owner communication!

  • 5 of 5

I would very highly recommend. We hope to stay there again. You know it's great when your husband says (more than once), "...we need to come back here again. I can imagine us spending more time here."

So close to the beach!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is nicely decorated, clean and comfortable. Best of all, it is just steps to the beach. My husband, kids and I had a wonderful time. Make sure to wake up in time for the beautiful sunrise. Ed and Betty were a pleasure to work with and responded in a timely manner. I would come back again and would recommend to friends and family.

Fall Break Perfection

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time here during our daughter's Fall Break. The rooms were very accommodating and comfortable. The easy beach access made trips with our kids so much less of a hassle and the Adirondack chairs on the porch were perfect for the evening nightcap. Overall we had a fantastic stay and would highly recommend it.

This is exactly what I have been looking for in a vacation. Steps to the ocean, beautiful accommodations, very friendly people...you just have to go and experience. Thank goodness I found this place.

The condo was exactly what we were looking for.

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time. We used to own a condo in Harlingen so we were familiar with all the restaurants and activities in the Valley and South Padre. Condo was clean and well maintained. Everything was in good working order. Yes I would recommend this property to others. In fact we are considering additional rental and trips in the future.
