"I rented this condo with my adult son for a stay after Christmas 2016. I was a bit surprised to find that this two story duplex was on the second floor of the building, but was otherwise very happy with the unit. Although there was no dishwasher, the galley kitchen had everything else needed for a comfortable stay, and there's a grill outside for barbequing. The master suite was huge with its own tv, a spacious bathroom, plenty of closet space, a washer dryer combo in another closet, and a door leading to a small balcony overlooking the pool. The living area had a comfortable sectional, a large tv and a large dining table as well as stools for eating at the kitchen counter. The upstairs bedroom had two queen size beds, a nice sized closet and a full bath and its own tv as well. The only caveat is that the stairs leading up are rather steep and would not be good for small children. The unit is on a quiet street that is between the gulf of Mexico and the main street of SPI. It was within walking distance of two different public beach entrances, some good restaurants, a food store and a bike rental store. There's also a hose outside for washing sand off your feet & whatever else may need to be rinsed. For me it was great for getting the salt water residue off my dog who loved the beach and the surf. A notebook in the unit giving tips for dining and entertainment, and Roberto, the owner, couldn't have been more helpful. We were unfamiliar with South Padre Island, having vacationed mostly on the Florida side of the gulf, but I'd go back in a heartbeat and would rent here again."
