NEW HOME NEXT DOOR! (#1276336) Both houses can hold 40!!
***NO SPRING BREAKERS!***
Owned by Beachin Island Homes, LLC, The Aquadesiac is a 4BR/3BA home with a heated pool, only steps from the beach. Its floor plan is almost identical to our other vacation rental home, the Banana Cabana (#163380); however, the Aquadesiac is larger, offering sleeping accommodations for 16 to 18 persons AND room for at least one blow-up bed (provided, of course)! Groups up to 20 accepted.
The Aquadesiac is a fantasy of a beach getaway home; furnished with high-quality, tropical-inspired furniture and art, plantation shutters throughout, and a kitchen equipped with beautiful dinnerware and all the kitchen tools & cookware you could possibly need. Your comfy beds will be dressed in high-thread count linens with beautiful duvets or coverlets, and each bedroom will have more than the obligatory bed and nightstand one usually finds in rentals. There will be chairs, a dresser or chest of drawers and nightstands, of course. The bathrooms are supplied with soft, plush towels and hair dryers. The master bathroom has a separate shower and Jacuzzi tub, a makeup vanity w/lighted mirror; the other bathrooms offer tub/shower combos and plenty of space for your toiletries. Samsung LED TVs in L/R and all B/R’s. Blu Ray players. Wireless speaker for your playlist, Pandora, whatever. Nothing about this home will feel like a “rental!”
The heated swimming pool is larger than you would expect – 11’ x 30’, with a huge tanning deck (about 8” deep) perfect for sun worshipers – no sweating required for a tan here! Even more important, for families with toddlers, the large shallow ledge (11’ x 8’) is an ideal place for toddlers to safely enjoy the swimming pool while Mom and/or Dad relax nearby.
With 30(!) pieces of beautiful outdoor furniture, two huge, covered porches upstairs, a covered patio downstairs and the poolside decking, you will be just as comfortable outside as inside. Grill up some fresh seafood, steaks, chicken or burgers on the Gas Grill, or do it old-school style on the conventional BBQ Grill.
An over-sized garage houses two cars with plenty of space in between for the Ping Pong Table (or should we say Beer Pong Table?). The huge driveway can accommodate 5 or 6 more cars.
The Aquadesiac is situated just steps from the beach and a very brief walk (4 short blocks) to the best beach bar on the island, the WannaWanna. Restaurants are 5 minutes away by foot.
PLEASE NOTE: 5-NIGHT MINIMUM STAY IN HIGH SEASON

About Toni Robertson
South Padre Island is my home away from home; and I spend 4-6 months here. I enjoy building and decorating homes, and the Aquadesiac has canvases from photos I have taken all over the world of seaside destinations.
Toni Robertson purchased this House in 2015
Why Toni Robertson chose South Padre Island
The Aquadesiac is our 2nd property on South Padre Island - We bought our first, the Banana Cabana (VRBO Property #163380) in 2005 after falling in love with the island. Nine years later, we realized the need for a 2nd home because of the demand for a vacation rental home with the capability to comfortably accommodate larger groups. On a more personal note, I realized the need for a 2nd home so that hopefully one of the two would be available to me when I wanted to return for the warm, sunny days and beautiful sunsets.
What makes this House unique
The Aquadesiac is anything but understated. Painted the quintessential color of a tropical destination, it is impossible to ignore as you drive down E Jupiter Ln, and inside you will find a fantasy of a beach vacation rental home...beautiful color schemes, art-lined walls, whimsical decor, upscale furnishings, comfy beds with beautiful linens, and everything you might want or need in your vacation home. Everything is brand new, from the furnishings, to the TVs and other electronics, to the beautiful dinnerware, cookware, and stainless kitchen appliances. The larger-than-average pool is heated and offers a huge 'ledge' in the shallow end that serves both as a tanning deck and a playground for toddlers. Beach access is only steps away, and restaurants and beach bars are only minutes by foot from the house.

This place was AMAZING!!
Mrs. Toni was very pleasant to work with from the very beginning til the very end. She truly made our experience renting a breeze! The house was amazing! This was the first time I've rented and the house matched the pictures!! Even our group of teenagers commented on her attention to detail in this house! She has provided everything you could possibly need while on your vacation! I would definitely recommend renting from her!! Thank you for everything Mrs. Toni!!
An Amazing Vacation Home!!!
We were very impressed with this beach house. It was very clean and decorated perfectly (loved the plantation shutters). You could tell right away that Toni paid special attention to the details. The kitchen was well stocked with dishes, pots/pans, cookie sheets, Pyrex dishes; blender, toasters, griddle, coffee makers, and gadgets galore. It had everything we needed. We spent many mornings and evenings sitting out on the front porch and even that was impeccably clean - - there were absolutely no spider webs on the ceiling. It was as if the house had just been painted. The pool with the chiller was very nice as well. Also, the location of the house to the beach was extremely convenient; you basically just had to walk across the street. The only small criticism would be that some of the remotes in the bedrooms did not work because they were missing batteries and some of the light bulbs in the lamps were out and needed to have been replaced. Not a big deal as they are easy fixes, but is probably something that should be looked at before checking in new guests. We had 8 adults and 2 children in our group and we had plenty of room. We also had 4 cars and there was plenty of parking space, even without parking in the garage. We would highly recommend this property.
We are really happy you all enjoyed your time at the Aquadesiac, and we appreciate the glowing review. I'm also grateful for the constructive criticism regarding the bulbs and batteries...no one has ever reported this issue, and I now know we need to be more proactive to ensure that every little detail is in order.
Beautiful home, wonderful time
The week we stayed at this beach house was wonderful. The house was very comfortable with lots of special touches. The pool and deck is where we spent most of our time when not at the beach which was a short walk away. We enjoyed our evenings watching the fireworks from the upper deck. Hope to go back!
Thank you, Susan, for the review. We strive to offer everything that any vacationer would want or need in our home, and we are happy you all had such a good time. We appreciate the fact that you all cared for our property and wish we had more renters like you!
Thumbs up for South Padre island not so much for Aquadesiac
I loved south padre island and the house too. But the owner kept calling me and didn't give me my deposit back for odd reasons. The garage and a/c unit Needed to be fixed so she had people go out and fix whIle we were there and I didn't have a problem with it until she decided to keep my deposit for cleaning services. I didn't think it was fair provided that she never said anything about garage door and a/c not working. I totally recommend south padre but the owner of ther Aquadesiac not at all.
Aidee, we encourage reviews; however, your particular one demands a response. You wrote in our Guest Book: “We loved your home.It was absolutely relaxing, fun, spacey (sic), and it couldn’t have been better. We will definitely come back.Thank you for allowing my family and I have (sic) an awesome vacay in your home. God bless you!”
Upon checking in, you completed a "Checklist” on which you stated there was no damage present or stains on any upholstery or linens; When you left, both our sofas were soiled so badly they had to be professionally cleaned. Someone in your party apparently cooked tortillas directly on our glass top range; after our cleaning service spent almost an hour trying to remove the scorched marks to no avail, we had to order a replacement of that glass cooktop; and finally, a blanket had to be replaced due to a very noticeable red stain that could not be removed. You stated in your review on VRBO “and didn’t give me back my deposit for odd reasons.” The reasons were not odd at all, and those reasons (damaged items), along with photos and even a video, were presented to you in great detail. Not once did you contact me to deny or even discuss the damages. We did in fact return part of your deposit; only the exact amount that we had to pay to return our home and its belongings to the standard it was upon your arrival was withheld. All we ask of renters is that they leave our home in the condition they found it, and even you cannot say that was the case with your group of 14 guests. Regarding the air conditioner, you called me and said your father told you one of the exterior units was making a very loud noise, and his a/c had made that noise shortly before dying. We were very grateful you notified us of this noise, as the capacitor had to be replaced. Had that unit burned up, your summer vacation would not have been as pleasant as it was. Due to our quick response, you never suffered any loss of air conditioning. One of our 2 garage door openers failed the day you arrived (Fri), and due to the weekend, it couldn't be repaired until the following week; however, you stressed it was no issue at all. Aidee, as you stated in our Guest Book, “it couldn’t have been better.” Your VRBO review is simply a reaction of one who is unwilling to accept accountability for actions which resulted in damages and partial forfeiture of your deposit. We had every right to withhold the amount needed to repair and/or replace what you damaged.
Lovely comfortable home.
Had a group of 10 women , college buddies from 40 years ago. The house was perfect we enjoyed cooking, and visiting in total comfort. Pool and location is close to everything. We walked or used the free shuttle. Minutes from the gulf and the bay!
Marvelous sibling get away
Perfect home and location for 5 adult siblings with partners to gather for a week of relaxation. Toni's home is perfect in so many ways. We cooked in most night which was a surprise to most of us. It enabled us to share more as we gathered in South Padre from all over the country. The dining room table became "Game Central" nightly as we laughed and acted like kids again. The pool space provided much needed relation from our busy lives. I would highly recommend this property and we plan on returning
