Looking for a comfortable condo on Texas’s most famous island getaway destination? Don’t break the bank! Book this wonderful three-bedroom South Padre Island vacation rental today and enjoy gulf views for watching the fireworks, lovely sunsets, and comfortable surroundings.

Located right on the border of Mexico and the United States, South Padre Island is a dream vacation destination for lucky guests from both sides of the border!

Sleeping seven lucky guests, this wonderful two-level condo is really more like a home - located on the second and third floors accessible by stairs. Enjoy your own private entrance, a spacious living area, and two private balconies, and if you're traveling with a larger party, adjacent units are also available for rental (please inquire for details). Tropical decor throughout will keep you in an island state of mind!

Spend some time relaxing in your spacious living room, enjoying the cable-equipped flatscreen mounted on the wall when you need to catch up on the morning news or your favorite shows from your place on the comfortable leather furniture, including one large couch and two recliners with their own ottomans.

Next to the living room you’ll see a luxurious kitchen with stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, and all of the amenities you’d ever need for whipping up a delicious meal! Save money by cooking here, or eat out at one of the many delicious restaurants surrounding you on the island. If you do choose to eat here, you’ll have plenty of seating indoors in the dining room, or you can always head outside to the balcony.

Three private bedrooms will sleep up to seven guests! Choose the master upstairs for yourself, enjoying the king-size bed, private vanity, en suite bathroom, and French doors that open up to a gorgeous private balcony, or pick the bedroom on the main level with one queen-size bed. One more bedroom has two twin-size beds and an attached bathroom – perfect for the kids – while three and a half bathrooms throughout will be more than enough for everyone in your party. Never argue over what to watch again with 19-inch flatscreen TVs and DVD players in all of the bedrooms.

Your two private balconies are perfect for watching the fireworks with a glass of wine or cold microbrew in hand, chatting with loved ones and talking about what you did that day. And what a day it will be! On South Padre Island, you’ll find all kinds of amazing restaurants, entertainment, and more in walking distance. And don’t forget about the marvelous beach –make sure to bring your swimsuits along!

If you need to keep your things clean after a day at the pool or the beach, you’ll enjoy having access to your very own private washer/dryer right in your condo. When you stay at the Marlin Cottages, you’ll have access to a wonderful shared pool and hot tub! With assigned parking, you’ll never need to worry about finding a space again.

The place was above expectations; clean, homey, well located, walking distance to beach. The grandchildren were so pleased and happy, hope to visit again soon👍

Unit was clean, great location. Our manager was awesome. No glasses in the cupboards. Zero seasonings on hand, which is not a problem but most units at least have salt and pepper. the recently rewired cable/internet was a mess an hanging from the wall near the table. Glad I didn't have a bunch of kids with me. two light fixtures had zero working light bulbs. The furnace had to be repaired while we were there and the microwave door had to be physically held shut while cooking or it would not work. Otherwise a good unit.
Manager response:
We appreciate your review and delighted to read you were happy with our local staff. We are working with the owner to replace the microwave, and we will be taking care of all the wires and cables left exposed after the contractor. Thank you!
