About the Property

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


SORRY, SPRING BREAKERS!! This is out of your league! NO SPRING BREAKERS ACCEPTED

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

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2015

About the owner: 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.

Why the Owner Chose South Padre Island, TX, USA:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
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.
