Why John Jensen chose Gulf Coast

As a pilot for UPS, I am able to travel or pick where I want my 2nd home.

I love North Padre for its yearound mild climate, great fishing, and friendly community.

What makes this house unique

Watching the amazing wildlife right outside my deck. Fish are constantly jumping, Beautiful birds

who come to catch the abundant prey.

At night there is a underwater fish lite off the deck where one can constantly see the underwater

activity. Occasionally, dolphins come to visit.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Wow, what a location! Views of the water 180 degrees from the Living and bedroom. Plenty comfortable with

a new King, Queen, and twin sleeper beds. The queen sleeper

couch is new too, with a spring matress.

Guestbook Comment

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 (2 boys - ages 8 & 10)had a great time at the Jensen house. The view from the deck is terrific and was a great place to start the day with a morning cup of coffee. The kids caught lots of fish from the dock and went swimming in the canal. The house is only about 1/2 mile from the beach, so we spent time there as well. We will definitely be back at the Jensen home again....probably this fall!

Wonderful well maintained waterfront house

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful time at this house. from the outside fishing lights for fishing of the dock, to the lower swim deck for which we could kayak, stand up paddle board, swim, small boat sail or tie our personal power boat to. Boat ramp is adjacent to the house so we could launch easily.

The house was exceptionally equipped with wifi, surround sound, large hi def TV. besides the standard cable tv with Tivo, there was Netflix, Hulu, Crackle, and many other internet channels available.

The master bedroom had water views in 90 degrees. We could watch all sorts of interesting boats go by.

We enjoyed the stay immensely. Look forward to coming back soon.

The Best Ever Gulf Coast Experience

  • 5 of 5

We have just completed a month’s long stay at this delightful home on a beautiful canal. The large deck provides beautiful views of the canal and the lovely homes lining the water. Cool tropical breezes waft through the canal, making sitting outside very comfortable. The accommodations are top notch with plenty of space for family and friends. The home is new and very well maintained. The kitchen is fully equipped, offering all the appliances and utensils one could ask for. The owners generously provide a full-sized washer and dryer as well as linens and towels. Wi-Fi is available and the AV equipment is more than anyone could ask for or expect. Two kayaks with paddles and life jackets are provided for relaxation and exercise. We have been vacationing on the coast from Galveston to Surfside and now Padre Island for over twenty-five years. This was by far the best experience we have had and look forward to a return visit next year.

Satisfied renter

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at this lovely home on the canal for over five years in a row.Whether we stay for one month or two we are always sad to leave.

The home is equipped with wifi , two TVs and a great stereo system.

The kitchen has all the small. appliances needed including a laundry room with a full sized washer and dryer.

For the fisherman , the outdoor underwater lights are great to attract the fish at night. The covered deck provides plenty of room to tie your boat as well as enjoying the view of the island.

The neighbors are friendly and the driveway and garage provide ample parking .Not to mention the house is always immaculate and the owner has provided all the needed linens.

We love this home and can't wait until we stay there again.

Our January and February ...

  • 5 of 5

Our January and February 2008 stay in the Jensen home was great. Their home is lovely, well equipped with a beautifull view.I enjoyed fishing from the dock and caught plenty of tasty sea trout. We delighted in watching a dolphin swim in the canal one morning.Internet hookup was an added plus. Nicely furnished with a comfortable bed. We thoroughly enjoyed out stay and hope to return.
