About Carol Mark

I have been singing on the Island for 23 years. We bought this property as an investment and have had such a great time meeting the guests that come to stay at The Starfish Beach House. Year after year we get the same people that stay with us at this rental and they have all become part of one big family. We have seen kids grow up, get married and now bring their children to the beach to experience the same great time they had as children at The Starfish Beach House. It has been such a pleasure to get to know everyone!

Carol Mark purchased this house in 2000

Why Carol Mark chose South Padre Island

South Padre Island has a little bit of everything for all to enjoy. This little slice of heaven at the tropical tip of Texas is so peaceful and relaxing.

What makes this house unique

You can just sit on the balcony and look out at the Gulf of Mexico and relax - take a walk or run on the beach or wait for the nightlife and enjoy dinner and dancing at one of our hot spots on the Island. There is always something to do or if you wish, nothing to do, but enjoy the beautiful waters of South Padre Island!

Perfect Vacation! Perfect Location! Perfect Home!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect getaway for my family. The house was immaculate and you could tell the owner went the extra mile and thought of everything you might need. The house is set up with kitchen, dining room, bathroom and bedroom (queen & twin) downstairs. The upstairs has a very large bedroom( 2 queens), bathroom and large living room. It was a great set-up! The kids were upstairs watching tv and playing and I was actually able to hear myself think downstairs. The beds smelled so good and were very comfortable with plenty of blankets and pillows.

When you have children, you are always loading and unloading the car, especially on vacation. Add chairs, buckets, beach chairs and half of the sand in South Padre to the mix and you spend all your time working instead of relaxing. But staying here, we walked across the street to the beach! No loading and unloading the car! And then when we walked back, there is an awesome outdoor shower to rinse sand off the toys and toes. The house even had plenty of beach chairs and boogie boards available to use.

I can honestly say there was not ONE time that I said "I wish I had this or too bad I forgot that". Everything I needed was there. I cannot wait to go back and sit on the amazing deck and listen to the beautiful waves.

Honestly nothing to complain about. Only suggestion is to provide a grill per unit.
