About the property

Steps from the Beach! 4BR/3BA Home Sleeps 16-20--Heated Pool--Perfect Location!

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.

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 will have canvases from photos I have taken all over the world of seaside destinations.

Toni Robertson purchased this house in 2015

Why Toni Robertson chose Gulf Coast

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.

Marvelous sibling get away

  • 5 of 5

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

Lovely comfortable home.

  • 5 of 5

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!

Great location and layout

  • 5 of 5

This was a great location and lay out! The only thing I would say is bring your own beach chairs. The ones here were not in great shape and their aren't a lot of them. Everything else was fantastic.

Time for Team Schope to Retreat & Relax

  • 5 of 5

Our dental team enjoyed 4 nights in your marvelous home. It was everything we expected and more. Your attention to detail was enjoyed by all of us. Even though there was some 'work' involved we certainly had a great time at your heated pool and enjoying some of the sites the island offers. Your recommendations for the 'relaxing' part of our trip were much appreciated.
