About the Property

Renovated 6/13 from floor to ceiling & wow, what a view!

Stunning views and beautiful surroundings will be yours while you enjoy your stay on South Padre Island, Texas' best kept secret. The sand is white and fluffy, the surf is gentle, the open air beach bars serve up great music along with yummy concotions. I fell in love with the island the first moment I set foot and knew right then I needed a little slice of this paradise to call my own. I searched for about a year to find the perfect spot. I chose the unit I did because it has one of the best views on the island. Part of this is due to the fact that it is one of the older buildings on the island and consequently is set closer to the Gulf than properties built more recently. When I purchased in 2013, I renovated the condo completely. Even I was amazed at the total transformation of my beachfront condo. Everything has been redone, from the smooth walls and ceilings, to the 24" faux travertine porcelain floor tiles.
The kitchen features custom espresso wood cabinetry, eco friendly vetrazzo counter tops & glass tile backsplash, new stainless steel appliances and it's fully stocked with every needed kitchen utensil: blender, coffeepot, etc.
The bathroom has a luxurious oversized shower with bench seat, toiletry shelf & frameless shower door. Featuring a whimsical design with bubble tile shower flooring, mosaic tiles, blue martini glass lights, lots of counterspace and a vessel sink.
The bedroom features a queen bed & twin bunk beds with stairs, not a ladder. Yes, the kids can have their own beds! :) A full sized chest of drawers and large nightstand complete the ensemble.
Relax in the living area with a flat screen tv, dvd player, ipod docking station and a pull out queen sized leather sleeper sofa. The chairs are comfy leather too. I have also left a few games on the end tables & a couple books to enjoy while you're here, or jsurf the net with complimentary WiFi.
Most lights in the condo are on dimmers so you can create a soothing ambiance. Your unit is also stocked with plenty of bath towels and beach towels.
La Internacional has an onsite pool and spa with plenty of padded recliners and succulent tropical vegetation, an elevator, laundry facilities and beach access.
There are numerous things to do on the island: go see the sea turtles, take a dolphin cruise, climb the lighthouse, take yoga, get a massage, windsurf, surf, scuba dive, take a sand castle lesson, go see a band, play mini golf, go to Schlitterbahn, bungee jump, take a jewelry making lesson at Art Sea, the list just goes on and on. Rent a beach chair during the summer months or bring your own to enjoy the beach. The sand is great. So great, in fact, that South Padre Island hosts a sand castle competition every year that brings in professional artists from around the globe. The surf is small & the water at the shore shallow enough to allow the children to play in the water while you relax on the beach with a book and a drink. Yes!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: For those of us that are drawn to the water and the beach, we have to return often to feel whole. Originally from San Francisco, CA I grew up going to the beach almost daily. I attended UC Santa Barbara and again, went to the beach almost daily. Then I moved to the Russian River in Northern California...same story. In 2005 I relocated to Texas and now live in Little Elm on the shore of Lake Lewisville. I am very fortunate to live on the water and the lake is beautiful, but still the ocean calls! I taught French and Spanish in CA but recreated myself when I moved to TX. I now assist people in buying and selling homes and land, primarily lakefront. I have two wonderful children that are yin and yang. Jacob, my serious 14 year old, plays the bassoon and is a voracious reader. Dex, my silly 9 year old, loves to play electric guitar and is craftier than McGyver.

Why the Owner Chose South Padre Island, TX, USA:
I have a serious case of wanderlust and have always traveled extensively. Some places I go to once, others many times, however when I hit the beach at South Padre for the first time just three short years ago I immediately felt at home. I found a way to go 4 times that year and the search for the perfect property was on. La Internacional is the perfect locale in my opinion. It is the closest property to the Gulf so the views are the best. Wanna Wanna is just next door and is a great laid back waterfront open air bar & grill. They have live music on the weekends and mellow tunes with a good sound system otherwise. Also in walking distance is the Laguna Madre Yoga and Meditation Center, where you can take not only Yoga, but Zumba, Pilates, Tango, & Hula. They have massage services, too! Many restaurants are also within walking distance, including Parrot Eyes, which I adore not just because the food is wonderful but also because there are always pelicans hanging out waiting for the fishermen to give them a treat. While it's a bit of a jaunt, I also walk up to Turtle Inc. It takes me about 10-15 min. What else do I have to do? I will jump on the Wave (see below) if I'm feeling lazy. It's really not to be missed. Learn about the Sea Turtles and get to see them up close. If you get there close to opening, they will even let you 'feed' one. Dolphin watching is also good on the island and the pod that lives here likes to play with the boats so they are easy to see. I could go on and on, but really, being on the island just feels good!

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
When I come to the island, I typically fly. The shuttle from Brownsville costs $1. Yes, that is not a typo. It is one buck. The Wave is free public transportation on the island and runs up and down the island. If you are not at a bus stop, no worries. Flag them down, they will stop. It doesn't get more laid back then that. If It goes to Port Isabel too, which you shouldn't miss while you're here. The pirate boat is a blast, the shopping quaint, the farmers market, yummy!
