About the property

3 Bedroom, 2.5 Bathrooms, 2 Car Garage with Pool. Sleeps 13 comfortably.

Attention Spring Break Renters: Please let me know if you are a group of students or a family. If you are a group of students ALL renters must be 21 and over and provide a copy of ID before signing rental agreement. Thank you!

This home was built in 2000 and recently remodeled inside and out. Everything is new and fresh for your stay at the island! The home is large enough for two families to stay comfortably with 3 large bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. It is a perfect home away from home for relaxing and entertaining.

There is a large open-area living/dining/kitchen upstairs with several windows to give you a great view while you are cooking or relaxing! The kitchen has been updated with all new stainless steel appliances and granite counter tops. Everything you will need is provided in this kitchen including all dishes, glasses, silverware, toaster, can opener, blender, knives, coffeemaker, pots, pans, and anything else you might need!

The living room has a comfortable sofa and loveseat that is an excellent space to watch the 42' TV. There is a DVD player and a selection of movies for your entertainment - or bring your own! There are 2 dining spaces - one that seats 5 and another one that seats 6. Use one for dining and the other for a game table!

The enormous upstairs front deck is a great place to relax and enjoy your morning cup of coffee at the outdoor table or watching the Friday night fireworks while sitting in the cool breeze. Make sure you check out the ocean view from the deck while you are relaxing!

The large upstairs master suite is a sanctuary away from home. The bedroom boasts a king size bed, large walk-in closet, two loveseats, and a 37' TV. There is a tiled shower with 2 shower heads and a jacuzzi tub to help you relax after a day in the surf. There is also a deck off the master bedroom that overlooks the pool and has a beach view.

There are 2 guest bedrooms downstairs with a bath in between. Bedroom #1 (the kid's room) has 2 sets of twin over full bunk beds as well as one twin trundle - that makes 7 kids in one room! Now if you can just get them all to agree on what movie to watch on the 37' TV and DVD player!

Bedroom #2 has 2 Queen size memory foam mattress beds and also has a 37' TV with DVD player. Adults in one room/kids in the other and everyone is able to kick back and relax in such an inviting space. Both downstairs bedrooms have an excellent view of the pool area.

The downstairs bath has a shower/tub combo so if you have smaller children that need to take a bath you are able to take care of them.

There is a large laundry room so that you can wash all the sand away before you pack up.

There is Wi-fi access, Time Warner Cable, and several DVDs to choose from. Every room is equipped with a TV and DVD player. If you would like to bring your game system it would easily hook up in any room. I know how important it is to keep the kiddos entertained even when there is a beach just a short walk from the front door!

There are beach toys, boogie boards, and beach towels so that you don't have to buy or bring these items for your stay. When you come back from a long day at the beach use the outdoor shower to get off all the sand before you jump in the cool pool right in the backyard. There is a large deck area that has relaxing Adirondack chairs as well as a table and chairs so you can eat a snack or dinner by the pool!

This house is located only 1/2 block to the beach access, 1 block from the Island Market, 1 block to the bookstore, walking distance to Wanna Wanna beach bar, shopping, and several restaurants.

If you enjoy exercising, this is a great place to run or jog. There is a walking/bike path along Gulf Blvd or you can run on the beach. Make sure you get up early to see the sunrise over the ocean. It truly is an amazing sight to see. If you aren't an early riser then check out the sunset over the bay - another sight not to be missed.

When you visit the island there is so much to do. Make sure you check out Schlitterbahn Beach Water Park for a great family water park, the Island Equestrian Center for horseback riding on the beach, Sea Turtle, Inc. for an interesting tour about the sea turtles that nest on the island, Clayton's Beach Bar which is the largest outdoor bar in Texas, Louie's for bungee jumping and go-kart racing, and so much more. At our house there will be a book that provides you with a description and contact information of all of the local attractions and restaurants. Our goal is for you to not only enjoy our home, but also this wonderful city!

This property is registered with the city of South Padre Island permit #2015-363484.

About Jeanette Groves

We live in Harlingen which is about 45 minutes away from South Padre Island. We spend as much time as we can on the island because it is an amazing vacation spot! Every time we cross the causeway to the island we leave all of our troubles and stress behind and just relax. We have traveled to many beaches and we don't feel that there is much better than South Padre! We have been coming here every summer since 2009 and consider ourselves local. If you have any questions or concerns while you are here on your stay please feel free to contact us and we will enjoy helping you.

Jeanette Groves purchased this house in 2013

Why Jeanette Groves chose Gulf Coast

We purchased this home on Cora Lee because of the location and access to the best beach in Texas! We also have another home on the island that we rent - look for Casa Del Sol I if you need a little bit bigger home.

What makes this house unique

There are so many wonderful properties about this beach house, but the best things are that the beach access is so close and the neighborhood is quiet and peaceful. Also, the front deck was a big feature! We LOVE that deck!

Everything we were looking for!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for the excellent experience!!

Jeanette's customer service was wonderful! We had trouble with the air conditioning unit in the bottom half of the house and called around 10pm to get it resolved. She was very nice and professional and called the A/C guy immediately. He had it fixed within an hour, even though it was late at night!

We had a bachelorette party with 14 women and loved every minute in this house! The kitchen/living/dining room had plenty of space for all of us. The bedrooms were furnished so nicely! They even had extra cots in the master closet. The beach is a block away, the pool is clean and refreshing. My favorite part was coffee on the huge deck with the morning beach air!!

Great experience

  • 5 of 5

14 people in one house sounds like a lot. With out experience with this home, we could have had a few more and still had been comfortable. Beautiful house with well kept pool and backyard. Comfortable beds and a great location, I wouldn't choose anywhere else to stay on South Padre. My group of friends chose random locations every end of summer, and this was by far the most comfortable.

FAMILY BEACH VACATION

  • 5 of 5

This house is perfect. We were two families with a total of ten people. We had so much room, if you needed a minute to yourself, there was plenty of space to find that perfect spot. The house was very clean, kitchen is very well supplied with everything you need to cook meals ( which we did everyday), house decor is very nice. The balconies are amazing!! We got to watch the fireworks display from the front balcony and it was awesome. As I said the house is perfect but we totally loved the pool. We spent a lot of time in and around the pool. Don't let the picture fool you this pool is a lot bigger than it looks on the picture. There are lay down chairs to sunbathe, other chairs to sit in, a table to sit around. The water temperature was perfect everyday.

Jeanette was so easy to work with and always responds very quickly. She was great.

This vacation rental has it all. We loved everything about it. We definitely will stay here the next time we are in South Padre. Beautiful house, pool and beach!!! What more can you ask for !!!!

Family Reunion Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The house was fantastic and stocked with all the basic needs and then some. With 13 people staying in the house there was more than adequate space and the beds were very comfortable. The pool and beach toys were perfect for the kids and the games came in handy for the rainy day we spent indoors. Jeanette was great to work with, we will definitely be recommending this house to friends and will book again if we have another large gathering.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great review Jodi! I am so glad you had a great stay! I know the weather wasn't perfect, but I'm glad you were able to enjoy the house. We'd love to have you back if you come to the island again!

This house was great. We had such a comfortable stay that we are already thinking of booking for next year. Jeanette is on top of everything, and great to work with. All of the beds were very comfortable and the house was very clean with separate thermostats for upstairs and downstairs. Beach access was very convenient and included a shower. This really made it easy to get clean as the side of the house has an outdoor shower as well. The pool area was great and included comfortable lounge chairs. Great place to watch the fireworks. We will definitely stay here again.

Map

South Padre Island is a beach paradise. This area is known for its beautiful beaches and warm surf. This small city has many amenities including numerous restaurants, extensive shopping, all types of fishing, and any water sport you can imagine. South Padre Island has a small town feel where everyone you meet is friendly and welcoming. The city provides free bus transportation up and down the island and also across the bridge to Port Isabel for larger stores such as Wal-Mart and H.E.B. The city is pedestrian and bike friendly as well.

From Memorial Day to Labor Day there are fireworks every Friday night out over the bay and every Saturday night from Clayton's over the beach. If you don't feel like driving to watch them, just sit on the large front deck and check them out from the house!
