We stayed at this condo for our first trip to Padre and couldn't have had a more incredible time. First and foremost, the condo is magnificent. Panoramic views of Laguna Madre from the master bedroom, downstairs, and the wrap-around outside lanai...simply breath-taking! The decorations and accomodations really make you feel like you're in a 5-star hotel. The condo pool is perfect for lounging and having fun with the kiddos. My son and I really enjoyed "night fishing" on the private dock, turning on the green spotlights and catching some green perch and sea trout. The condo provided absolutely everything you need: amazing in and outside stereo, DVD players and TVs in every room, beach chairs/umbrellas/sand castle gear, clean towels and linens, plenty of dishes/silverware/glasses, fishing poles, bottle/wine openers, life jackets, washer/dryer, margarita mixer (amazing right!), and Weber Grill and equipment. The neighbors were extremely friendly and the condo was in a safe, quiet area off the main street. It was literally only 4-5 blocks drive to get to the ocean side of the island for beach days. There are 22 beach access points clearly marked to park and unload your gear, and after you're done at the beach, you'll be at your home-away-from-home in under 5 minutes. There were grocery stores only blocks away, and some very fun restaurants for every palate (even with a 3 and 6-yr-old.) We actually spent a majority of the time cooking in the condo because you just can't beat a delicious breakfast overlooking the laguna, or a grilled seafood dinner watching the sunset. This was an incredible family vacation that we needed: relaxing, beautiful, and stress-free. The owners were so helpful and checked in on us to make sure we had a perfect stay, and the property managers were very accessible and helpful when we needed something. We cannot wait to come back in the future for another family vacation at this incredible condo in SPI!
