South Padre Island Condo Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedroom, 1 & 1/2 Bath Condo With Amazing Beach Views

Our beautiful sixth floor beach front condo has amazing views. Each of the 2 bedrooms has a queen size bed. There is also a queen sofa sleeper in the living room. Each of the bedrooms and the living room have flat screen TVs. Just sitting at the kitchen table or the sofa will give you beautiful beach views. The bedrooms are freshly painted and have very comfortable beds. The kitchen is well stocked. There are 1 and 1/2 bathrooms which we find to be very convenient when you bring the family! You won't be disappointed with the location either. There is so much to do in the area. Great restaurants and beach bars within walking distance. We typically end up at one of the beach bars/grills when we take a walk. The staff at the Aquarius is so very helpful and friendly, just ask them and they can give you great recommendations! We were sitting on our balcony and were treated to a pod of dolphins playing in the water. This isn't a regular occurrence, but it sure was special to see! There are several areas at the end of the island where you can go and wait for the dolphins to appear. There is a pool (heated in the winter) and a hot tub on the property. There are also picnic areas with grills in the beautifully landscaped court yard. The only problem with the grills is that the smell of the food cooking always makes you hungry! There is a laundry facility on the first floor. We have decorated our condo to make you feel comfortable and welcome.

This property is registered with the city of South Padre Island Permit No. 2015-244789

About Karen Salter

We are from Wisconsin and found ourselves coming to South Padre Island at least once a year to visit Grandma, who moved to the area. We fell in love with the beach and the 'laid back' feel of the island. We refer to it as being on 'Island Time', never in a hurry, things always get done, there's always tomorrow...

We love to sit on the beach and take walks. It is so easy to make new friends on our beach walks. When it's time to leave, we seriously start planning our next trip down to South Padre!

Karen Salter purchased this condo in 2014

Why Karen Salter chose Gulf Coast

We checked out several properties before buying at the Aquarius. The building has recently gone through an extensive remodel. The grounds are absolutely beautiful. The location is perfect, within walking distance to so many great restaurants and shops. But it was the view when you walk into the condo that really sold us!

What makes this condo unique

We have updated and made our condo very cozy and welcoming. We love walking into the condo and seeing that view! It really is spectacular! You will always find something to do from shopping and eating to lounging at the pool or hot tub. There are so many things to do/see within walking distance. We have stocked the kitchen well. The beds are so comfortable, that can be a problem if you want to get up early to see the sunrise! The extra half bath comes in very handy for those who like to use the bathroom to catch up on their reading! We love the staff, they are so friendly and helpful.

The city of South Padre has a FREE shuttle on the island called the Wave. It will take you up and down the island and into Port Isabel until late in the evening.

On the north end of the island, there is a sea turtle rescue. It's always fun to go and check out the new admissions. They do releases every now and then and you can, for a small price, be there watch the sea turtles being put back in the sea. It really is a great experience. Usually comes with plenty of dolphin sightings.

We would love to answer any questions you have about the condo or the area. Give us a call!

Highly recommend this condo for a stay on SPI! It was nicely decorated and had very comfortable beds! We enjoyed watching the sunrises from the balcony. We could see the jetties and even some of the bay from the balcony! The kitchen was well stocked with everything you need-even a crockpot, but we ate out most of the time at some of the local restaurants. Be sure to go to Yummies for their whole grain waffles! The property is clean and well maintained. There is a very nice walk in shower! The hottub was wonderful and "hot"! We also enjoyed the swimming pool! This complex has a resort feel and we didn't want to leave! We will be back again!

We stayed at the condo for a week. Our 7 year old had never seen the ocean and what a time we had! The condo is great, everything that you could possibly need is there, from pots/pans/utensils to games- everything was provided. The view was spectacular. The pool and hot tub were great, we saw but didn't try the sauna. Karen's suggestions for things to do and places to go were wonderful as well. We especially enjoyed the sand dunes and the turtle rescue. The building staff were very helpful with suggestions on grocery shopping and restaurant selection. We will definitely stay with Karen and Chuck next time we go to South Padre. I highly recommend this condo rental for anyone looking for a great clean, comfortable place to stay on the island.

My husband and I rented Karen's condo for Labor Day weekend 2015 and had a great time. The ocean views were incredible. We truly enjoyed sitting on the balcony and hearing the waves. We will definitely return!

Aquarius on Padre

  • 5 of 5

My family rented from Karen during the week of September 20-27, 2014, and we had an amazing time. Just sitting on the balcony listening to the waves roll in was so relaxing. We took advantage of the direct access to the beach, enjoyed the pool and hottub and even had a nice bbq on the available grills. Karen is always a phone call/email/text away and gave us several tips on things to do/enjoy while in SPI. We rode horses on the beach, enjoyed a dolphin cruise, explored the dunes where you can find tons of shells, and dined at Gabriella's Italian Grill and Pizzeria and it is by far the best Italian we've had. Ask for Robert if he's still working there when you go -- nice young man and very attentive. Actually, they were all super nice. We enjoyed our trip and look forward to returning, hopefully next summer!

Car: not necessary

Our condo is located in the 'entertainment district' of South Padre Island. It is a very easy walk to several great restaurants and shops. Taking walks on the beach is one of our favorite things to do on the Island. We usually end up at one of the beach front bar and grills. A drive north to the end of the road will give you amazing sand dunes and a lot of privacy. You can do a lot or a little on the Island, it's up to you!
