South Padre Island is situated at the southernmost tip of Texas and features 34 miles of Gulf of Mexico shoreline. Perfect as a year-round vacation spot, this town is home to many shops, boutiques, and eateries. Known for its nightlife, the island has more than 50 bars, nightclubs, and restaurants lining its streets. With these types of locations and more, this town is perfect for families and groups of friends alike.

This home is split into two separate living quarters - the upstairs portion, which is the main house, and the downstairs portion, which is sleeping quarters. Each have their own entrances - the first floor may be accessed via the garage.

When guests walk into the second-floor, main home, they'll immediately take in the open floor plan, hardwood floors, two chairs, and two twin futons. Enjoy a movie night, made possible with the DVD player. Guests can also catch a movie on cable or use the home's WiFi to access their online streaming accounts.

The dining room table, which seats six, leads directly into the sizable kitchen. Outfitted in white cabinetry with black accents, the kitchen comes fully stocked with all the cooking utensils guests need to throw together a wonderful meal. Guests need not worry about cleanup because the dishwasher takes care of the dishes.

With four bedrooms and three bathrooms total, this home has room enough to fit 14 guests. The second floor includes the master bedroom with a king bed and a second room with another king. There is also a sofabed available.

In the downstairs, there are two bedrooms with a bathroom to share. Each of the bedrooms has two full beds, and there's a TV to share. Guests of the downstairs even have access to an extra refrigerator in the garage. The downstairs portion is perfect for younger guests looking to have their own space to retreat to.

The bathrooms, some of which are decked out with colorful shower curtains, will make bath time for the kids a breeze. This home includes a washer and dryer downstairs for guests' convenience.

Everyone will love the private pool in the fenced-in backyard. With patio furniture and a large swimming area, this backyard might just be everyone's favorite place in the home.

In addition to the pool, there are lots of water activities near this home. Because the South Padre Island beaches are known for their warm, shallow waters, visitors enjoy kiteboarding, surfing, fishing, and tons of other related activities. There's even a lighthouse, sea turtle rescue center, and birding center nearby. In short, there's something to satisfy everyone's interests.

This house and its surrounding area are a match made in heaven. Don't wait to get your slice of it by booking this Texas vacation rental today.

Perfect for friends or family fun

We love te house, clean and spacious home and really close to the beach access.
Oliver G. Sep 2018
The location was great, about a block from the beach and walking distance to a couple of bars and stores. I gave it 3 stars because the sheets had sand once i pulled them back to climb in bed which meant to me it was not changed or washed from the previous renters. Also I don't remember reading that the only staircase is located outside, so that is the only access to the second and first floor. I would book again as long as they figure out who isn't cleaning and changing the sheets that was the main disappointment.
Manager response:
We have discussed the sandy sheets with the housekeeper and sincerely apologize for the situation. The home is listed as having two separate living spaces that have to be accessed by outdoor stairs. Thank you!

This was a great place for us. We usually stay at a resort but wanted to give something else a try. We are glad we did! Plenty of room and everything was great! If you go with younger children, know that the two floors are not connected but for teens it’s awesome! No curfew for the pool, private bbq area, easy access to the beach and outside shower make this a great vacation spot. Thank you Vacasa!

Great property, very close to the beach, nice pool and well maintained. When with our children and grandchildren, everyone lived it. We’d go here again.
Lorena M. Jul 2018

Monalisa C. Jun 2018
We enjoyed our stay. It had everything we needed and the pool was great to have. It was a short walk to the beach. The only complaint was that it smelled like moth balls when we arrived. However, I'd stay here again.

Norma T. Oct 2017
The house was clean and well maintained. Our group took great advantage of the pool during a tremendously warm Saturday in October. The beach is only a few steps away; the evening and sunrise beach walks were amazing.
Jennifer Z. Aug 2017
This home was very AWESOME for my family of 9 1/2. I couldn't have asked for any other home on SPI. This home was very room and it was walking distance to the beach, which we loved! The pool looks big on the picture but was still roomy for us. I also liked that our children had their own privacy down stairs.
Overall... We all loved this home & are looking forward to renting this home again when we go visit SPI again so If your looking to vacation at South Padre Island with a big family, this is the home for you!
Thanks for letting us stay in your lovely home! ❤️🏡

Beautiful home, great location, short walk to beach, convenience store right down the street. Kitchen had everything you need to cook a gourmet meal. Washer and dryer was super convenient. Extra fridge was a plus. Pool excellent!

Had a great time. Enjoyed the house very spacious and clean. Beach access nearby. Nice neighborhood.
Salvador F. Jun 2017
Condo was clean, spacious and in a quiet neighborhood . Walking distance from several shops and restaurants. Beach access was a skip away which made it great for the kids.
Marlene C. Jun 2017
The home itself is gorgeous we really enjoyed staying here! The staff in the other hand is a different story we had a few issues while we stayed and the communication between the staff is poor! I had to call numerous times before a ticket was put in, each and every person said they would call me back and it never happened when I finally got in contact with a supervisor at vacasa she was finally able get the ball rolling I received a call and the owners there in less than 10mins to fix what they could. The owners were lovely and very friendly I would definitely stay here again. minus talking to the actually vacasa company our stay was incredible perfect place for a family vacation!
Monica D. May 2017
Great location with short walk to beach. Nice large back yard area, pool is smaller than it seems in pictures but it is well maintained.
Laura G. May 2017
Aries Manor was the perfect location for our family's weekend getaway. The house was located near popular attractions. We were truly impressed with the cleanliness of the home. The house accommodated our family of thirteen perfectly. This was our first time booking a home from Vacasa and we will definetely book through Vacasa on future trips to South Padre Island.
Toni R. Nov 2016
The place was nice good location but tons of tiny roaches everywhere
Manager response:
The unit has been sprayed for roaches; no activity has been seen. Thanks!
Belinda P. Nov 2016
We really enjoyed our stay here. The upstairs was beautiful and so was the pool area. The staff is great and the ocean is so beautiful. My Missouri guests commented on the friendliness s of the south padre residents. I cant wait to go back again.
Delia S. Oct 2016
I loved the fact that we had a pool and yet were half a block from the beach and Wanna Wanna club :)
LINDA L. Oct 2016
The space was good..but needed some upgrades.
Jennifer W. Oct 2016
We were very disappointed that the downstairs bathroom had no air/vent and we found mold as well. All toilets had issues flushing. Fixtures like the towel rack in bathroom fell off 1st day. Bedding was old and washed out which made it look dirty. Window units in downstairs bedrooms did not cool good enough and our guests had to sleep upstairs on couch.
Manager response:
We apologize for the discomforts this guest experienced. There are window units in each room, and they are most effective if doors are closed for the night. The Property Manager has fixed the fallen towel rack, and he has not been able to find any mold. He will continue to look for it so we can be sure there isn't any present in the home.

House was very spacious very nice and clean our family enjoyed our stay we recommend this house
Kim Q. Aug 2016
I did not expect a glamorous house but I did expect the level of apparent cleanliness, bedding and furniture to be like a fairly nice hotel. None of these were part of the Aries Manor so the price was about double what it should have been. There was an unpleasant odor. The bath mats were dirty. The beds were squeaky and very used. The pillows were so thin. There weren't enough towels, dish soap, shampoo and clothes detergent. The kitchen utensils were a mix match of old discarded items. The disconnect of the up and down stairs and use of the keys was hard to manage with so many people. The only reason that I gave any stars was because the air was cold, the pool (though tiny) was clean and the person who seemed to manage the property was quick to respond and nice.
Manager response:
We are sorry to see that there were some disappointments during this reservation. An ant spray had been applied to the windows prior to this guest arrival which did have a slight odor but has dissipated now. The pillows are standard size bought brand new for the home at the beginning of August. The utensils are mismatched as they were purchased for different purposes, but they are all fairly new. We would love to have another chance to impress this guest as the Property Manager continues to work on the home.
Aracely P. Jul 2016
We loved the house, it was fresh, clean and very welcoming. When we got there, we could not find the key and called customer service. They were very patient with us and walked us through the process until we got done. Over the weekend we had some issues with a breaker going out. Omar came out and replaced the part that was causing the problem. We loved it so much and would definitely stay there again.
Melissa N. Jul 2016
Great location and place to stay. Having a pool is a nice compliment to the beach. Spacious with 2 rooms with King Sized beds. Strange disconnect between the upstairs and downstairs but works with older kids. Overall, a nice beach house.
Dianna G. Jul 2016
We had a great stay for a weekend wedding. Beach house provided us with all the we needed. Pool came in handy for those who did not want to walk to the beach. Great place and spacious.
Warren L. Jun 2016
I stayed at Aries Manor recently with my family and I had a great time. The property was well maintained and had a great location. We also enjoyed the pool and multiple bbq grills. We would definitely recommend this property.
Jessica V. Apr 2016
We had an awesome time here at Aries Manor--- the booking was easy, the house had everything we needed. The private pool was a bonus --- the rooms were big and spacious --- the beach was walking distance, gas station Around the corner was convenient. My friends and us had an awesome time here and are for sure booking again here at this location.
Jane G. Jan 2016
We were four couples with a few days to soak up the sun and walk on the beach. We loved the location of this property.
Beatriz C. Nov 2015
I would stay here again completly satisfied with service
