    Beautiful property on the bay side of the island, in a quiet family friendly neighborhood. The perfect home for your next family vacation. Our great room with cathedral ceilings and large windows give this home a spacious feel. French doors that open onto a large south facing porch bring the lush tropical outdoors in to you. Our home also features a large full kitchen, with a full assortment of cooking utensils and appliances for entertaining. Additional seating on the porch is great for family dinners or an excellent view of the Friday night fireworks. Both bedrooms have new carpeting and walk in closets to store away suitcases, and full bathrooms, with plenty of room for the whole family. It is only a short walk to either the beach or the entertainment district, but far enough away for peace and quiet.

    Get ready for a pure beach vacation. This 2BR, 2BA condo sits is a quick walk from both the beach and the best South Padre Island restaurants and shops. Come home from the sand and surf to enjoy a BBQ by the semi-private pool. Sleeps 6.. INSIDE THE CONDO There’s space for 2 cars to park at this pretty little condo complex. With only 4 units sharing the courtyard and swimming pool, you’ll love the private but friendly atmosphere. Your unit has 2 private decks overlooking the space, surrounded by palms and the ocean breeze. A family atmosphere defines this open-concept ground floor condo. The furniture leans toward rustic simplicity, the decor nods toward “beachy”, and tile floors keep everyone cool. Once you’re inside. The kids might rush to turn on the 40” flat-screen TV while you unload the groceries into the efficient U-shaped kitchen, where stainless steel appliances and granite countertops are the handy high-end upgrades. Up to 5 can lounge in the living room, while the bookworm of the family will enjoy the reading nook. One sofa pulls out into a queen-size bed if needed. Between the kitchen and living room is a dining table that seats 4, with space for 2 more if you pull up extra chairs. Playful fish hang on the walls of the bedroom and bathroom spaces, and each bedroom has its own television set and plenty of storage. The master bedroom has the advantage of a king-size bed and en-suite bathroom with a tub/shower combo. The guest room is just as nice with a queen-size bed and access to the guest bathroom just across the hall. LOCATION Beach vacations are all about location—with the access path picking up 1 block from your condo, this criteria is more than covered. South Padre Island offers sailing, fishing, and other water sports, and you’re also in a prime spot for food with the Blue Marlin Supermarket an 8-minute walk from your door. Within a 5 minute walk you’ll reach a range of restaurants, from takeout (D Pizza Joint and Wingstop) to casual sit-down with bay views (Louie’s Backyard and Coconuts Bar and Grill). While you’re here you must try Ceviche Ceviche, a highly-rated hot spot where you can build your own (you guessed it) ceviche. It’s only a 15-minute walk south. If you’d prefer a beer, head to Padre Island Brewing 15 minutes north, where you can take in great views from the deck with your burger and local brew.
