Property description

Our home is designed for comfort and convenience and yet is one of the lowest priced 2 bedroom units in the Sunchase IV Resort. It has granite countertops in the kitchen and bathrooms, washer-dryer in the unit, filtered water and ice in the refrigerator door, and two recliners in front of the flat-screen HDTV in the living area. TVs in each bedroom and ceiling fans in all rooms. This is our home in the winter each year and so we know when something needs to be added or replaced.

The amenities provided by Sunchase IV Resort are unique -- 2 pools (one heated), 2 hot tubs, 2 tennis courts, 2 air-conditioned racquetball courts , 2 air-conditioned ping-pong rooms, a fitness center, a seventh floor sundeck, and a library. The racquetball courts also accomodate badminton and pickleball. Of course the main attraction at South Padre Island is the beach which is just outside our East gate.

.If you are looking for more space, checkout our other condo in the same complex - HomeAway # 331934.

South Padre Island is a vacationer’s paradise. The sandy beaches are excellent for sunbathing, swimming, shell hunting, castle building and leisurely walking. The gulf and bay provide opportunities for surfing, kite boarding, wind surfing and fishing. A World Birding Center and a sea turtle hospital are located next to the Convention Center. Schlitterbahn Beach waterpark is just down the road...or a short walk down the beach. There are all types of restaurants in walking distance. McDonald's and Denny's are just outside our gates and in a short walk are several cafe's and full serivce restaurants.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: Dean (professor) and Martha (administrative assistant) both retired recently from Iowa State University (Ames, IA). We have four children and eight grandchildren. They all enjoy spending a week or more in the winter on the beach with us each year. We spend six months in Texas as 'snow birds' and the rest of our time in Iowa, Colorado, and visiting children/grandchildren. We have decided to avoid snow!

Why the Owner Chose South Padre Island, TX, USA:
We wanted this second property in Sunchase IV to accommodate our friends and family when they visited. In 2004 we bought this property which is just down the hall from our first condominium. (See #331934 for our first property.) We loved the architecture at Sunchase IV and found the amenities to be perfect for us. We regularly use the heated pool, hot tub, racquetball courts and beach. When we are not actively enjoying the options, we love the view of the beach and the water!

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
South Padre Island has a variety of good restaurants and entertainment opportunities. We enjoy the fact that it offers both gulf and bay fishing close to the condo. The air conditioned racquetball courts are rare in a condominium complex and we use them often. The FREE bus allows one to get to any venue without needing to drive.
