About the Property

4BR/4BA spacious, comfortable, well-furnished beach cottage close to the water

This is a cottage-type beach house with a total of 4 bedrooms and 4 full baths about 500 feet from the public beach access. Forget the sterile, isolated condominium - this house is spacious but cozy, offering a comfortable, rustic beach experience so close to the water that you can smell the salt in the air as you watch the sunrise from the porch.

It has been remodeled with new cabinets, counter-tops, and tile floors. It's a 4-bedroom/4-bath vacation home with two kitchens, two dining areas and two living areas, all in one cottage! Features include:

- Cable tv and wifi
- Propane and gas grills for guest use
- Covered parking for two cars, and additional parking for four more cars.
- You can see the ocean, even though we are five houses down from Ocean Boulevard;
- Everything is on the second floor, with sitting areas on the front porch and rear balconies.
- The beach access is just a short walk. It takes about two minutes to hit the sand.

- You are within walking distance of shops and restaurants, including two beach-front bar and grills.

This property is registered with the City of South Padre Island Permit No. 2015 928204

Car: Recommended

SPI is one of the only places in the US where you can drive on the beach. We like to pack up our grill and a cooler, head on down to the beach access, and choose a spot on the 25 miles of beachfront available for hanging out.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: Hi, we're David and Dalice DeGroot! We bought this property to provide a haven on South Padre Island where we could pursue our artistic interests of writing and painting. After some major remodeling and decorating, it is becoming what we hoped it would be -- a place to rest and recharge!

Why the Owner Chose South Padre Island, TX, USA:
We love this house because of the location and because of the cottage look on the outside, while inside it is decorated with a more modern look. It is also a great place for displaying our paintings.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The front porch provides a great place to take it easy while you take in the world. You can just see the ocean in the distance, and closer in, the folks walking to the beach provide people-watching entertainment. On the summer weekends, the porch provides a great view of the Friday and Saturday fireworks. SPI is one of the premier kite-boarding sites in the world, with enthusiasts coming from as far as Hawaii(!) for the exceptional beaches and the Laguna Madre. It's also, obviously, one of the best sport and saltwater fishing destinations in Texas. You can go deep-sea fishing for about $1800, fish the Laguna Madre for redfish, trout, and flounder for about $350, or fish off the jetty or in the surf.
