It pays to be an early riser at Pat's Condo. As you sip your morning coffee on your private balcony and watch the golden sunrise over the Gulf, you might decide to stay awhile. All you need to pack is your swimsuit.
I named this top-floor, two-bedroom condo in honor of my mom, who fell in love with the place at first sight, just like I'm sure you will. It's that view: South Padre's pristine while-sand beaches and the gentle waves of the deep-blue Gulf, stretching out as far as the eye can see. You can't help but be mesmerized!
The view greets you when you wake up each morning, wrapped in 400-thread-count sheets on an ultra-comfortable king-sized bed in the master bedroom. There's nothing standing between you and that beautiful beach, so pop a coffee pod in the Keurig and get ready to head out.
But first you must wake the kids from the guest bedroom, with two queen beds that let them spread out like royalty. Both bedrooms have their own full baths, already equipped with shampoo, conditioner, body wash, hair dryers and plenty of fluffy towels. (There's also a queen-sized pull-out couch in the living room for extra guests.)
SURF, SAND, SUN
The condo comes stocked with all you need for a great beach day: umbrellas, beach chairs, coolers, boogie boards, the works. Hop on the bikes included in your rental to ride from one end of the Island to the other. Now for some professional-grade relaxation.
By evening, head back to the condo complex, where the kids can splash in one of the two pools and hot tubs while you throw some steaks on the grill. Or forget about cooking: South Padre's best restaurant district is just steps away.
After dinner, challenge your traveling companions to a rousing game of Monopoly or settle in to watch a movie on one of the unit's three LCD TV's. Pick something from our video library or browse Netflix and Amazon on the upgraded premium broadband internet.
On day two of your vacation, the options are endless: a game of tennis on the recently resurfaced courts? An afternoon of thrills next door at Schlitterbahn water park? (discounted tickets available at our manager's office.) Or maybe just hanging out on the balcony with a book, taking in that sparkling sea view...
With 300 days of sunshine and 34 miles of white-sand beaches, South Padre Island is as close to paradise as you can get. Enjoy tons of outdoor activities, relaxing spas, great restaurants, exciting nightlife and unparalleled shopping.
Pat's Condo is located on the island's south end, right next to La Isla Blanca park. We're just to the right of the bridge, which means you won't waste any time sitting in traffic. The Schlitterbahn water park is literally next door (but far enough away that you won't hear any park noise.)
This cozy, fully equipped condo puts you and your family right in the heart of South Padre Island, close to the action but perched above it all. Up here, it's just you and the eternal emerald-blue sea.
