The island is only accessible by causeway or boat.

Our two story, 3 bedroom, 3 bath home can accommodate up to 12 guests and is just a five-minute walk down Constellation to Aquarius Circle Beach Access #18.

About Ernest Singleton

The owners have owned a home on South Padre Island for over ten years. As educators for over thirty years, they have dedicated their careers to educating students throughout the State of Texas.

It has always been a dream of the owners to create a vacation home on South Padre Island that can provide families and guests with the most relaxing and beautiful environment possible. During the planning for FireHenrys, every decision was made with one guiding principle - Vacation home owners must create an island home setting that they would want to live in themselves and be proud to share it with family and friends. If it is not good enough for family and friends, then it is not good enough to lease. We would be proud for any of our friends or family to stay at FireHenrys.

Every decision that has been made to create FireHenrys has come with great consideration for our visitors to SPI. Are we finished with our ideas? Absolutely not. Will we add more and more unique amenities as the years pass. You better believe it! For now, we have worked diligently to provide a clean, safe, and colorful environment for your family and guests to enjoy.

We look forward to accommodating your needs and will be available to visit with you about any of the special amenities and attractions that can be found throughout island. We found our treasures on South Padre Island. Now it is your turn. This way to paradise! Ernest and Ignacio

Ernest Singleton purchased this house in 2014

Why Ernest Singleton chose Gulf Coast

We bought this property because it is located on one of the nicest streets on the island. Constellation is approximately two miles from the Queen Isabella Causeway, so we are far enough away from the heavier traffic during high season to remain a relatively calm neighborhood. There are only about ten permanent residents on East Constellation Drive. Many of the remaining units are vacation homes for the owners. There are no multi-story condominium units on our street. FireHenrys is conveniently located in walking distance to so many amenities. Within minutes, guests can walk to the Wanna Wanna Bar, multiple restaurants, cinema, post office, convenience stores. There is a sunset view of the Laguna Madre and on many calm days and evenings, guests can hear the waves turning over on the beach and smell the sea mist from the Gulf waters. Easy access to the beach was a number one priority. At the end of East Constellation is Aquarius Circle Beach Access #18, only a five minute walk from FireHenrys to paradise. We love the layout of FireHenrys. The spacious family room and kitchen along with the outdoor environment provided in the covered patio and pool area make it a comfortable setting for your relaxation and comfort.

What makes this house unique

FireHenrys will feel like your home away from home for your family and guests. Obviously, the jacuzzi bathtub and rain shower in the downstairs master suite will be a hit for everyone, but just as relaxing will be the hot-tub that overlooks and flows into the pool. Many guests want a break from the sun, but still want to be outdoors. The roof-covered patio and outdoor bar provide a relaxing environment and at the same time prevents over exposure to those mid-day rays. Without any doubt, the most unique thing about FireHenrys is its convenient location in a pleasant neighborhood with easy access to all of the amenities of the island.

Second Visit Everything We Expected

  • 5 of 5

Two years ago I wrote a glowing review of FireHenrys and not much changed for our family of seven. Tons of room for stretching out and giving everyone their own space. Walking distance to desirable beachfront fun and cool local bar/eats. We were more adventurous this time with surfing, Schlitterbahn, and exploring new parts of the island -- but the trip just wouldn't have been the same without FireHenry's as the trip's anchor. We look forward to Ernest's hospitality for future sunny vacations!

Perfect place to enjoy family and friends!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at FireHenrys with my family and two other families of friends. The place is fully equipped, and everything in good condition. The pool has very good atmosphere and good size. The house is very close to the beach so we went every day and we could take the chairs, toys and carts to load everything that was in the house.

Ernest is very friendly and he was aware that everything was fine during the week.

We are definitely considering returning to FireHenrys

It Felt Like Home Away From Home!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed here for our annual summer vacation. This home was so perfect for all of us. It truly felt like a home, not a typical rental. My kids took full advantage of the pool every second of the day. The beach was only a five minute walk up the street straight to a beach access point. My dad loved the outside bar area which is where he spent all his time. And lets not forget about the awesome master bathroom. Least to say everyone had a wonderful time and has not stopped talking about it. Ernest was the best! He was quick to respond on any questions I had and made sure we had everything we needed. Thanks Ernest for everything!

Our family vacation was a success. Great rental property!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 7 nights and was fantastic. It accommodates my whole family comfortably. Fully stocked kitchen made it easy to make homemade meals, which was great. The backyard was amazing, beautifully landscaped and had an amazing pool and jacuzzi that was heated to our liking. Beach access was right around the corner with showers which was really convenient. Overall, this was an awesome place...will be back next year. Evans Family, 2017.

FireHenrys is conveniently surrounded by popular island attractions that are a must for every SPI visitor. You won't want to miss seeing the Sea Turtles at Sea Turtle, Inc. Founded in 1977 by the Turtle Lady of SPI, Ila Loetscher, Sea Turtle, Inc. provides every visitor with educational presentations that teach us about the different species, how to identify them, and what we can do to protect them, including the rarest species, the Kemp's Ripley. Sea Turtle, Inc. is at the top of the list as an annual summer 'must see' activity for my entire family.

Just next door is a Wing of The World Birding Center, our own South Padre Island Birding and Nature Center. Open daily, this new birding and nature center, complete with a five story observation tower invites you to take an educational voyage from the waters of the Gulf of Mexico, through the dunes on the beautiful beaches of SPI, and into the Laguna Madre Bay. Over 5400 linear feet of bay-view boardwalks and pathways that meander through 43 acres of freshwater ponds provide bird and wildlife viewing at seven different bird blinds throughout the wetlands.

Schlitterbahn Beach Resort is just a short drive down Padre Island Blvd. The resort is open year-round and features a heated-indoor watermark, dining options, and spectacular views of the Gulf Beach. Experience endless fun as you brave the waves of the Torrent, tidal wave river, and float on the Rip Aventura. Schlitterbahn Beach Resort has become an annual summer event for our grandchildren.

Don't miss the opportunity to spend a morning exploring Port Isabel Museums. A thrill for my family is always a visit to the Port Isabel Lighthouse. Constructed in 1852, this lighthouse remains the only lighthouse on the Texas coast open to the public. The Lighthouse Keeper's Cottage still remains on the adjoining grounds and currently houses the Chamber of Commerce. In addition to the Lighthouse, The Port Isabel Historical Museum and Treasures of the Gulf Museum provide exhibits with one of the largest collections of Mexican artifacts form the U.S. Mexican War. Experience where Rio Grande Valley historic roots began - in Port Isabel, Texas.

Without any doubt, the swashbuckling thrill that has created a life-long memory for my family is the interactive, entertainment cruise aboard the Black Dragon Pirate Ship. Located just across the Queen Isabella Causeway, this unforgettable adventure on the Pirate Cruise promises non-stop activities as the ship travels across the Laguna Madre. Whether sighting dolphins maneuvering gracefully through the waters of the Laguna, listening to swashbuckling tales of pirates, or witnessing gun fights and sword battles, children of all ages will leave with exciting memories of this unique sea adventure.

Whether your family spends a day riding horses on the beach, visiting Gladys Porter Zoo in Brownsville, getting close to nature during the thrill of a dolphin watch cruise, or parasailing over the Gulf and Laguna waters, they can end the day with a relaxing sunset dinner cruise. As my family has done for so many years, your family can jump on board of the Southern Wave Catamaran to enjoy a relaxing cruise in the Laguna Madre Bay. A family favorite is setting sail on a sunset cruise to experience a feast of succulent shrimp and fajitas as the sun melt into the Laguna Madre waters. Don't miss a favorite of our family, the summer Friday cruises that end under the island's spectacular fireworks show.

No weekend can end without one of our favorite outings, a Sunday morning breakfast at Ted's Restaurant or The Palms. Both of these local dives capture the essence of the island experience Before leaving South Padre Island, you won't want to leave the island without treating yourself to a session at the Massage and Healing Arts Center on South Padre Island. Licensed massage therapist will provide an opportunity to learn how to relax your mind as well as your body.

To help you revisit your family's unforgettable and spectacular trip to South Padre Island for many years to come, don't forget to stop at the entrance of the island and take a photograph by the world famous 'South Padre Island' sign. Each time you look at the smiles on the faces of you family and friends, you will fondly revisit your journey that brought you to this resort vacation spot off the southernmost Gulf Coast of Texas.
