Dog-friendly, waterfront fun on the Gulf Coast w/ pools, hot tubs, gym, & tennis

Take the family south for a Gulf Coast getaway at this sparkling and spacious, dog-friendly condo with a host of on-site resort amenities including shared pools, hot tubs, tennis courts, and a fitness room.

Part of the Solare Resort Condominiums, this two-bedroom rental is beach-close for fun on the sand and in the surf. Grab your camera and head over to the South Padre Island Birding and Nature Center where you can stroll along bayfront boardwalks, take a birding tour, and climb the five-story observation tower with views of Laguna Madre and the South Padre Island Skyline, all less than a mile away. For shopping and dining, you'll find several options up and down nearby Padre Blvd.

Airy, bright, and inviting, this exquisitely decorated and furnished retreat offers pristine living environments and desirable modern conveniences.

Relax in the living area with comfortable furnishings, bright windows, and access out to your private balcony. Sharing this space, there's a glass-topped dining table with seating for six, and a breakfast bar with three leather, swivel counter stools, perfect for socializing, day-planning, or enjoying delicious, home-cooked meals prepared in the full kitchen.

The updated kitchen has drawers and cabinets stocked with essential cookware, dinnerware, and utensils, as well as a full array of stainless steel appliances and labor-saving, countertop gadgets including a French door refrigerator with ice maker, range, microwave oven, toaster, coffeemaker, and dishwasher. If you want to try your hand at some traditional Texas BBQ, communal grills are available on the property.

There are two bedrooms in this home: The master suite has a plush, king-sized bed, a floor-to-ceiling window overlooking the deck, a large closet, and an attached, full bath. The guest room has two queen beds and a second full bath. With two bedrooms and two baths, this home accommodates up to six guests very comfortably. Your small, well-behaved dog (35 pounds and under) is also welcome to join you for an additional nightly fee.

While relaxing at home, get online with ease thanks to the complimentary WiFi, or keep up with all your favorite shows and movies on three large, flatscreen TVs. And to ensure you start each day with fresh, clean clothes, this rental comes with a private washer/dryer located right off the kitchen.

While there's plenty of fun and excitement to be had in the South Padre Island area including off-shore fishing excursions, watersports, and hiking and biking trails, you can enjoy a number of fantastic resort amenities right outside your front door with two swimming pools, hot tubs, a fully-equipped fitness room, and tennis courts.

Reserve this condo today and pencil in a spectacular vacation alongside the rolling Gulf of Mexico.

    Very, very nice.

    We stayed in Building 8 of the Garden Villas and it was great! It was the closest thing to our own personal beach house in South Padre. I didn't want to stay in the tower condos and have to deal with the elevator and no balcony, but couldn't pay over $400 a night for a house on the beach. In the 3 story Garden Villas, the parking lot is right there, the grounds are perfectly landscaped, we had a large balcony, and it was the week after Labor Day so the property was not crowded at all. The Vacasa units were all nicely decorated too - everything was clean, new, and modern. Other vacation homes (in our price range) we looked at were on the other side of Gulf Blvd. (so not directly on the beach, unlike Solare) and had hideous wicker furniture and cheap polyester seashell bedspreads and the like.

    Condo is as described, kitchen well equipped. Wireless internet was non existent, had to go to tower lobby to use my laptop, no hangers in the closet and only a broom and dustpan to use on the floors. Could have used a stick vacuum for area rugs and a swifter jet mop to tidy up the tiled floors. The pools are not heated as stated on VRBO site. Did not get what I thought I was paying for in regards to pool and internet but otherwise the condo is as described.

    Manager Response:

    We are sorry to see WiFi was so difficult for this guest and have refunded them accordingly. Each unit should have its own wireless router in place very soon. We have asked VRBO to edit the pool's description. Thank you!

    We enjoyed our stay here for the most part. The complex itself is so close to the beach and there was security at the beach entrance and well as the front which was nice. Each day when we went down to the beach the guard there helped us with our wagon down the stairs.

    The unit itself was mostly clean with the exception of a few items we noted. Units look nice, but be aware they are fairly cheap, poor quality furnishings. I'd do a full inspection upon arrival and document anything you find. Kitchen was well stocked, but if you are picky about your cookware bring your own pans/pots as those have seen better days and the non-stick was coming up.

    Amenities on the property were nice, but I can imagine during peak season they are quite crowded. The gym was located in the tower and was pretty basic, but was nice there even was one available. Those are hard to come by when on vacation but important for people. Pools were nice, but oddly enough one thing to note there are no bathrooms anywhere near the pools which I imagine just causes people to urinate in the pool. It's also tough if you come with kids and they need to go.

    Overall we'd stay at Solara Garden again, for sure in the low rise options. The tower units don't seem as welcoming. It was nice using Vacasa and they seem like a PM company with great communication and service if you need it.

    Such a great place to stay. I was “stuck” here an extra week for hurricane Harvey and was happy to be in such a comfortable home.

    A few months ago was stayed in the high rise portion this time in the garden home. Both have similar high end feel. The walls may be a bit thinner in the garden home or maybe just one one night of the 7 had a bit more partying next door.

    Small housekeeping issue when we first arrived but we sent an email and text to Eric and went to play on the beach; by the time we returned from walking on the beach, someone had arrived to fix it. Good stay. We will be back

    I really liked the property. Great location. The toilets had a hard time flushing and the wifi never worked but besides that I liked it.

    I believe we were only the second renters for this newly renovated condo. It was well appointed and decorated very nicely - felt like a professionally decorated home. The property, pools and beach were great and it was centrally located to everything we wanted to do. It felt like a high end resort. the property is gorgeous and well maintained.

    I think I was the first guest here since the condo was completely remodeled. It is absolutely beautiful! Thanks for a fantastic stay.
