Casa Del Sol I - Large Single-Family Home With Private Pool

Bedrooms 4
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

4 Bedroom, 3 Bathroom, With Private Pool - Sleeps 12-15

This home was built in 2006 and has been freshly painted with beautiful tropical decor to get you in the island mood! The home is large enough for two families to stay comfortably with 4 large bedrooms and 3 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! 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 is a beautiful granite dining table that seats 6 and more room outside on the front deck to eat.

The upstairs front deck is a great place to relax and enjoy your morning cup of coffee at the outdoor table or watching the Saturday 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, a loveseat, and a 37' TV. There is a tiled shower/tub combo and double vanity. There is also a deck off the master bedroom that overlooks the pool.

There is another bedroom upstairs that has a queen size bed, large closet, and TV. The guests that stay in this bedroom will also have their own bathroom with a shower/tub combo.

There are 2 guest bedrooms downstairs with a bath. Bedroom #1 has a Queen size bed and a Queen size sleeper sofa. There is a large closet and TV.

Bedroom #2 has a Queen size bed and a twin with a twin trundle. This room is large enough to also bring in the fold-a-way cots that are stored in the garage if you need more sleeping space. This room also has a TV with DVD player.

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 WiFi access, Spectrum 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 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 lounge chairs to work on your tan!

This house is located only 1/2 block to the beach access and near the middle of the island so everything is within walking distance.

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 #2015-517873.

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 2010

Why Jeanette Groves chose South Padre Island

We purchased this home on Lantana 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 II if you need a little bit smaller 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 pool was a big feature! We Love the amazing pool and beautiful backyard!

Good Rental, Great Property Manager

  • 4 of 5

We stayed eight nights over Thanksgiving 2017. Our party was 6 adults and two children. The property housed us perfectly and was conveniently located to the gulf, the bay and businesses. The property was well arranged and cable TV in family room and all bedrooms was a plus. The property manager, Jeanette, promptly responded to our questions and concerns. Our only con is that the swimming pool is not heated.

This place is perfect! It includes all the amenities you would ever need for a beach house!

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking to accommodate a large group for a beach get away, look no further! We had 15 people stay in Casa De Sol for 4 nights starting on the weekend before July 4th, and we couldn't have been happier with our stay. The bedrooms were big, house was clean, plenty of pots pans and dishes, and they provided all the clean linens and towels you would ever need. The walk to the beach was easy (they have a cart to pull beach equipment) and it was close to night life. Our property manager, Ms. Groves, was absolutely wonderful. She made herself available all times of the day for any questions or concerns, and even generously let us leave a couple hours after our departure time. Do yourself a favor and book your next South Padre trip in this home!

No Fuss Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We come regularly to SPI. We chose Casa del Sol beacuse we brought my parents and my sister and her family with us this time. We chose right! House was spacious, and private pool oasis was just what we needed after boogie boarding all day. Although we travel with our own beach gear, the house had tons of beach gear for those who don't have their own. The garage even had a wagon for toting ALL of our stuff to the beach, which was the envy of everyone who saw us walking hands free! We needed a place with large gathering areas for everyone to spend time together and this house has multiple areas for doing just that. We definitely recommend this house, especially to newbies who don't know what to bring. House was well stocked with bath towels AND beach towels. All basic items were well stocked. Owners were easy to get in touch with to answer any questions.

My family and I just spent Thanksgiving 2016 at Sout Padre Island. We stayed at Casa del Sol and was extremely pleased with all that the house had to offer. We were a family of 11. There were 5 adults and 6 children and the house was perfect for all of us. The house is about a five minute walk to the beach which we used every day. We also used the swimming pool daily as well. We truly enjoyed our stay and would definitely come back .

Owner's Response: Thank you for the kind words! We try to make sure every guest is comfortable so the stay is enjoyable. I love the island in the "off-season". The weather is warm and it's not as crowded. Thanks for staying and we hope to have you back!

Easy to reserve, easy to find... Everything here was well maintained and easy. Pool in the backyard was beautiful, shower right there to wash the beach off before you jumped in. Towels right inside the door to the house. Jeanette was easy to get a hold of. I would definitely reserve it again.

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 back deck and check them out from the house!
