120 E. Verna Jean (House), South Padre Island, TX 78597

Lovely family-friendly, dog-friendly home with private pool & close beach access

Take to the beach with your family (even your dogs!) and stay at a perfectly private South Padre Island vacation rental with a pool, canopy-covered furnished patio, washer and dryer, central AC, and WiFi!

Save yourself from the crowds by having a home base here, while still being within a few minute's walking distance from the shore, as well as family-friendly restaurants serving all-American cuisine like BBQ, burgers, and Texas seafood. If you're with friends, see what's on at Clayton's Beach Bar and Event Venue or hop around the many vibrant bars and clubs in the area.

Inside this mid-century-style home, you'll have bright, clean, and comfy accommodations for six. Splash away the afternoon in peace at the private pool then take a break from the sun with a sweet tea at the patio table shaded by a canopy.

Head in through the windowed-doors and find a comfortable living room with a flatscreen TV equipped with cable and lined with cushy couches and stylized with a pop of emerald-green trim for a modern feel. Fix a meal in the open kitchen with a updated fixtures and appliances like a glass-top stove and big basin sink, then eat at the dining table or outside on the patio!

This beach house has two bedrooms, which include the master suite with a king-size bed, TV, and doors right out to the pool, and a room with two twin trundle beds that's big enough to make room for three sleepers - as well as your dogs, for a small nightly fee. There's also a pull-out sofa.

A full bathroom, with double sinks conveniently separate from the shower space, and a washer and dryer make this a comfortable spot for a family or friend getaway.

From the kid-friendly Schlitterbahn Waterpark, where slides and splash pads are the main draw, to the educational Sea Turtle Inc., there are many options beyond beach-going on South Padre Island. Rent bikes and ride from north to south and back again, or charter a fishing or cruise boat to experience the Gulf up close. As far as a relaxing, easy beach getaway goes, it doesn't get any better than this!

Book this Texas vacation rental and come back year after year for memories and fun!

Everything we were looking for at a reasonable price!

Our group had an awesome trip! The house has everything we needed, and the pool was absolutely wonderful!
Erika W. Aug 2019
We loved everything about this home! Location, spacious and the pool! Had all the kitchen stuff we needed. Definitely will be renting here again!

It was very good place to stay close to everything well stocked with dishes and everything you could need

Location is great!

The house was nice and also the pool.

Loved the stay at Vacasa, the only disappointment is that the climate was so bad and raining all the time..

For $92 per night, the house was nice and comfortable and two minutes from the beach. A few minor repairs are necessary such as for sticky doors and the shower control handle needs to be replaced. Since I had a couple of Labs, I did have to go clear out to the zip line facility in order for them to run off leash.

Really the only great thing about this place is its location. It is walking distance-one block, two minutes from beach! The property really needs some work/renovations for the price. Do NOT go off of the pictures--they must be several years old. All of the furnishings, paint, doors, etc are very worn. Shower wasn't great, pool was hot and dirty, microwave is broken, dryer doesn't dry too well, freezer did not keep anything frozen and refridgerator just needs to be replaced. Vacasa staff did come out quickly, but they really weren't able to fix anything-just showed us how to deal with the problems while we were there. I never got the key/deadbolt to work and pretty much kept it unlocked our whole stay.
Manager response:
We apologize for the difficulties this guest experienced during their stay with us. The shower and cable issues have been fixed, and the refrigerator will replaced at a later date. The pool gets cleaned at the beginning of each guest stay. We have replaced the dead bolt and made new keys. Thank you!

Needs lots of TLC. Needs all new doors, appliances and furniture.
Dish washer was bad but they did replace it after a couple of days.
Our electricity went out one afternoon and it took 4 hours to find out the it got shut off because of non-payment. Owner claims it was a mix up on auto payment but very inconvenient none the less. Also the owner lives in the pool house in the back of the property so if you want an exclusive site this is not the one for you. We didn't know this till we got there.
Manager response:
We apologize for the inconveniences this guest experienced. The owner does sometimes stay in the bungalow, but it is not his permanent residence. The dishwasher has been replaced; we do apologize it took some time to get that taken care of due to a part never being delivered for repair. Thanks!

Loved it!! Very pet friendly place short walk to the beach.
Parking was great and lots of room if your kayaking to store them in the back.
Grill was a plus had burgers and dogs for the kids after they had a good time at the pool.

Staying again next year!!

This house is a vintage mid-century cottage in a terrific location on the island. You are a quick, safe and quiet walk from beach access, Wanna Wanna beach bar, Cafe Karma and several other spots. The house was very clean and well stocked. The pool was sparkling and beautiful. Everything was comfortable and just what we expected. As with any house this age, there are minor repairs that could be made, paint touch ups and the like. None of this bothered us. The air conditioning worked great, as did the internet and the cable TV system. You should note that there could be someone staying in the back-house of the property. The back house was boarded up and empty during our stay, but you should inquire ahead of time if this is a concern to you. The back house seems to have direct access to the pool. Overall, we loved it and would stay again.

This house is in a great location, no beach view but less than a 5 minute walk to the beach. The private pool was great because it is hard to find a house with a pool, only thing was the water was hot the whole time we were there and thats because it was in the middle of summer, we expected cool water to refresh ourselves and that wasn't the case. You must be prepared and take pillows and lots of blankets because beds and furniture are uncomfortable. Center table is very heavy to move in order to pull out bed from the sofa, which is worthless to even pull out because you can feel all the springs and it is not comfortable at all to sleep in. We had to purchase air matresses in order to sleep comfortable. We found dead roaches through out the house. I would defiantly not rent here again, very disappointed with our rental!
Laura A. Jul 2017
Would definitely book with VACASA for our future SPI trips.
Suzanne D. May 2017
We really enjoyed the location because we walked every where. The 1300 mile drive was worth it.
Sergio B. May 2017
We had an awesome time there! Surprise party was a success!
Joe C. Apr 2017
This house was in a perfect location and our family had an amazing vacation. We can't wait to come back.
Swain R. Apr 2017
We had a great time. It's very difficult to find a beach house all to your self with a pool and private fencing only a few minutes from the beach. We will totally stay there again.
Denise C. Sep 2016
This house is in a great location. No beach view as it is a one-story, but you are close enough to hear the surf and less than 3 min walk to the water's edge. The private pool was great! We spend every morning and evening on the beach and the middle of the day floating in the pool. Absolutely great time. I have recommended this place to 3 friends already!
Linda S. Jun 2016
We enjoyed our stay very much. Especially enjoyed he pool since the first few days we were there, the tide was high and we couldn't get on the beach.
Kevin L. May 2016
We enjoyed the pool every day!
Mary H. Jan 2016
Location great - the rental was real disappointing.
Manager response:
We appreciate your feedback and will look into what can be done to make improvements.

Cozy detached structure on a quiet street...but very close to all of the great stuff on the island. Very close (less than one block) to the beach with easy access.
Secure off street parking right at the front entry. Delightful private pool and covered patio with Weber Kettle for outdoor grilling!
