"The description for this condo just does not do it justice. We were looking for something in a residential setting with 2 master suites for 2 couples who were going to share the unit (close to retirement age, no kids). This condo fits the situation perfectly with 2 master suites, each with their own full bathroom and queen beds. The pool and spa are awesome. The description also does not mention the fact that you have the pool to yourselves, it is not shared. And the pool is entirely enclosed with a privacy fence. We swam, played a lot of cards, cruised the boulevard and walked from store to store. If you are new to S. Padre Island, do not miss Clayton's Beach Bar, or Wanna Wanna Bar to get the full beach experience. Drive north on highway 100 for a ways out of town and beach access #2 or #4 are paved and for a $10 fee you can drive right on the beach for miles. No toting chairs, coolers, etc. Sit right outside your car and enjoy the surf.
We did have problems with the property manager. The owners are very nice and accommodating. However, when we tried to call the property manager, Sal, to arrange for our arrival we were never able to contact him. We got there and had to knock on neighbors doors, one of whom had the owners phone number and they were able to get us the code to get in. Not impressive. The queen bed in the lower suite has a broken box frame that creates a hole in the bed. Three adjoining slats were broken. We called the manager, he came out and looked at it and we never heard back from him the whole next week we were there. We had to scrounge boards out of the garage to bridge the broken slats to make the bed useable. The bed needs to be fixed. Some lights were not working in the entry area, we reported it, some were fixed, some were left inoperable. Our suggestion is to have the owner's phone number handy and deal directly with them."
