Shared pool & beach access in this great condo - dog-friendly, too!

Planning a family getaway to one of the most beautiful beaches in Texas? This spacious and dog-friendly South Padre Island vacation rental comes with a shared outdoor swimming pool, comfortable furnishings, and an ideal location less than half a block from the Gulf of Mexico.

Only six blocks from the island's central business district and down the street from 34 miles of uninterrupted beach, this two-bedroom condo is the perfect destination for families interested in convenience, relaxation, and spending time together in the sun.

Step inside the living room of this ground-floor unit, where tile floors and tropical ceiling fans create a cool and inviting space. Back from a long day on the sand? The plush furniture, flatscreen cable TV, and wireless Internet make this room the perfect space to unwind.

Stainless steel appliances and granite countertops create a beautiful cooking space in the large open kitchen, while an adjacent dining area provides ample seating for four.

When your family isn't snorkeling, wave-jumping, or building sandcastles on the nearby beach, they will likely be found cooling off in the shared outdoor swimming pool. Hoping to bring the family dog along as well? For a small nightly fee, your canine friends can stretch their legs in the grass on this beautifully manicured property.

This two-bedroom, two-bathroom condo has plenty of sleeping space for as many as six people. The master bedroom features a queen-size bed, a flatscreen cable TV, and a full en suite bathroom. The second bedroom has two twin beds, while a sofabed provides additional sleeping space.

Although visitors could easily spend their entire vacation exploring the beaches of South Padre Island, there is so much more to love about this vibrant community. Book a dolphin-watching excursion right in town, or rent bicycles to explore the coastline. Kids will also be thrilled by a visit to Sea Turtles, Inc., an educational rehabilitation center for injured sea turtles that is only two miles away.

And don't forget about the fireworks displays each and every weekend in summer, visible from the central business district only six blocks away.

Parent or child, surfer or sunbather, this Texas vacation rental will give you the perfect blend of beauty and convenience on South Padre Island.

I love that this house is so easy to get to & the beach is walking distance. The beach is so clean & we usually go after school starts to avoid the crowds but even when we have gone during summer it still isn't as crowded as other beaches. The property is kept in good condition. I have to say the guy that is available for any problems is so easy to get a hold of & he responds quickly & always corrects the problem. We have rented this house for 3 yrs already & will continue to rent it, simply love it.

Fantastic place and loved the beach!
Sandra G. Jul 2019
It was very cozy, clean and spacious. Kitchen had everything we needed to prep and cook our meals. It was very convenient getting to beach as beach access was just across the street. We left the condo spotless as we took it upon ourselves on our way out to make sure it was clean. Overall, we had an awesome stay on our vacation. Thank you again, it was a five star stay for us.
ANTONIO W. Apr 2019
The location was very convenient. It was almost in the center of the attractions and activities on the island and it was only steps from the beach. The unit was very clean and well furnished. There was ample parking and it was in close proximity to the front door. The check in and check out process was simple. I would definitely recommend this location.

Cecile M. Mar 2019
This is a nice and clean condo just steps from the beach access.
Kitchen equipped with all you need to cook and prepare meals.

This condo was perfect for our family of 4. We had our 2 toddlers with us and it was child friendly, which was great for us. It was clean and well organized. All of the appliances worked great. My husbands only complaint was the lack of sports channels on the cable.
Olivia H. Nov 2018
We love that we have the whole house to ourselves, very quite area. We also love that we can bring food & cook it there bc eating out gets old to quick. The best part I guess is that the beach is walking distance & the beach is never too crowded. We will definitely renting this property again.

Victor M. Aug 2018
Muy cerca de la playa, excelente ubicación.
Raquel M. Jul 2018
As always enjoyed my stay at the Wave. Just a bit disappointed didn't get a return call back from the local Mgr regarding a concern we had during our stay. Overall, though had a great time there.
Charles F. Jul 2018
We loved the condo. One glitch was TV access. The TV with spectrum service was poor and had to be restarted every time. The remote controls were in bad shape. This was not very important. Had this glitch never existed the results would be really great. So we give it 4.5 stars out of 5.
Abban L. Jul 2018
This property was perfect for our stay at SPI! It was just as presented I the description- clean, cozy and convenient! The beach access was only a SHORT walk away. I would be happy to stay here again!
Anne K. May 2018
Easy access to beach and walkable to a couple great restaurants.
Olivia H. Apr 2018
We loved that the location was so close to shopping, food & especially the beach. The condo was the perfect size, very quiet & provided all the necessities of a home. We would definitely love to make it our usual yearly stay.
LeRoy N. Jan 2018
We decided on a last minute vacation and was able to book the waves unit #1 for a week. The weather was in the mid 70s most of the days and felt great after coming from -21 back home. The unit is ideally located and was able to walk to most fun spots. Beach access was just across the street. The unit is very clean and comfortable. Our neighbors were quiet and very friendly. We visited with them several times as they were from the Midwest also. I would have liked to stay longer. I recommend The Waves and Vacasa to anyone thinking of vacationing in South Padre.

You will not need anything on your visit.

Becky H. Aug 2017
This was an awesome condo and fully furnished. We had a group of six people and it was very comfortable. It is decorated very nicely and it is very clean. We had a great time and would absolutely stay at this place again.
Audrey V. Aug 2017
Condo #1 at The Waves was great! It was perfect for our family of 4! The walk to the beach was even shorter than I had expected. My 3 year old (who is sort of a whiner) did it easily with no complaints. We all enjoyed the pool after we got back from the beach. The location was awesome: close to the beach, restaurants, and shops. We would definitely stay here again!
Zoraida B. Jul 2017
Very nice place!
Amanda H. Jun 2017
This is within EASY walking distance to the public beach access. My kids and Grandma and I loved it. The decorations are super cute. The beds are comfy. The towels are plush. It's a great place to stay!
Ana Z G. Jun 2017
Had a great stay. Beds provided a restful sleep. Once the door closed, noise from outside couldn't be heard. Easy walk to the beach with two access points close by (nice restaurant on beach - The Palms - on north access). Kitchen provided essentials needed. Would do it again in a heartbeat!
Douglas W. Apr 2017
Everything was great for a weekend get away.

Shannan C. Dec 2016
Stayed in this condo over the Christmas holiday. Location to beach was great and property was very nice and clean. I brought my two Yorkies and appreciated the property being pet friendly. Staff was very responsive. Check-in instructions and property info was very clear and helpful.

Anita B. Sep 2016
Great Labor Day vacation. Have been visiting South Padre for years, but the convenience of checking-checkout with lockbox is fantastic. Vacasa property was perfect. Loved having our pups with us! We had low key getaway and ate at our favorites: Yummies, SeaRsnch and BurgerFi

We had to make last minute plans on SPI. Found The Waves through VaCAsa on line. More than fair price. Great location. Will go back over summer...making reservations now!

Doug M. Mar 2016
Loved the location. Just a short walk to the beach. Condo was well equipped and clean. Dog friendly was a plus!!!
Michael F. Mar 2016
Great place to stay in SPI. Not too far from everything, location is perfect. It is tucked away close to the beach and the surrounding area is fairly quiet. Place is well maintained and feels new! Would definately stay here next time!!
SallyJo P. Mar 2016
We have been coming to SPI in the winters for 4 years now. We have stayed in a different condo complex each time. 131 E. Atol #1 was, by far, the best place we have stayed so far. Everything was clean and maintained. Our concerns were addressed right away (and there was only 1). A very short walk takes you to the Palms restaurant (I highly recommend) and also to a great beach access.
