You work hard and when you can make time for a vacation, there's no time to waste being stuck in the car or shoving down crowded streets. At this dog-friendly South Padre Island vacation condo, you'll avoid all that and stay right by the beach! Between amenities like shared pools, hot tubs, and tennis courts, as well as the crashing waves just moments away, you'll think you're in heaven.
Solare Resort Condominiums is on the north end of South Padre Island, near the city's convention center. The ever-popular Clayton's Beach Bar is just a few blocks away if you're catching a concert, and the free shuttle called the Wave picks up just a block away and quickly gets you to the south end with its shops and bars.
The living area is calming and restful, with a muted color scheme, soft lighting, and decor that brings to mind natural scenes. Flip through cable channels to find something to watch, or put in a DVD that you've been curious about. If you're looking to book an eco-tour, log onto the WiFi to read reviews and find phone numbers. Air conditioning keeps you cool and comfortable.
Your own private balcony overlooks the resort grounds. Open a bottle of wine in the evening and listen to the wind whistle through the palm trees, or just close your eyes and enjoy the smell of the ocean.
You'll have everything you need to make delicious home-cooked meals in the full kitchen, which has stainless steel appliances (including a dishwasher) and a breakfast bar. Start the day off with some fresh-brewed coffee, scrambled eggs, toast, and fruit, or just grab a quick bagel.
Two bedrooms provide plenty of space for six guests - for a small nightly fee, that can even include a dog of up to 35 pounds. One bedroom has a king bed, while the other has two queens. Both have access to a full bathroom, and there's a washer/dryer to take care of laundry.
If you want to keep up your workout routine while you're traveling, there's a shared fitness room in the Solare Tower. Of course, you may prefer to get in some exercise by playing in the pool or challenging someone to a game of tennis instead. When you've had enough, let your muscles relax in the hot tub.
Direct beach access from the pool area takes you to the beautiful beach. Look for shells or wade in the water. For a true South Padre Island experience, book a sandcastle-making lesson, then enter in one of the frequent contests.
Many of the bars in the area have live music and dancing at night, in addition to their yummy house cocktails. Go to Louie's Backyard for the Friday fireworks, then dance the night away. The Quarterdeck is also a favorite location for vacationers.
Get ready for the trip of a lifetime!
