Good times

Great views and access to the beach-roomy apartment. However, needs paint, sheet rock repair, mirrors and ceiling fans working and added, and a new refrigerator. Love the Aquarius Condos- second time to stay there and will return!

The location and view are nice. The pool area and outdoor BBQ areas are nice. Check in/out easy.
Parking adequate. # 806 needs extensive updating.

The view was phenomenal next time I might just get the penthouse though still loved the place even if the stove was not working

Overall, this unit was just ok, it was about what I expected for the price. For someone who wants the bare minimum and plans to spend all their time on the beach this is probably a great choice. If you plan to spend any time in the room hanging out or relaxing I would recommend choosing a different unit.

Pros:
1. View is great (beach view)
2. Location (right on the beach and close to several restaurants)
3. Secured parking (for 1 vehicle, additional vehicles park on the street)
4. AC worked great
5. Clean bedding
6. Common areas & pool clean and well kept

Cons:
1. Furniture & Decor was outdated (I’m guessing they haven’t done much to it since 2012 based on the number of magazines on hand from that year).
2. Dirty air vents and fan blades.
3. Couch is broken (makes you slant forward when seated)
4. Missing baseboard and old dirty tile.
5. AC unit is located on the balcony so noisy when running if you are trying to sit outside.
6. Building required all guest to wear wristbands to prove you are staying there.
Manager response:
Hi, Pat! Thank you so much for telling us about your stay. We apologize for the inconveniences you encountered. The sofa sleeper has been removed from the listing and have discussed the cleanliness issues with housekeeping. We hope to see you again soon!

Booking through vacasa was smooth and easy. As was the check in and check out process. Day 1 there were maintenance issues in the room. (Burner on stove didn’t work, garbage disposal wouldn’t turn on and sink was clogged) We contacted vacasa agent and they had a team out to repair these issues within the hour. Huge thanks! The staff at Aquarius was friendly and helpful. Especially when it came to security! There was an issue with another resident staying on property but authorities were called and everything was properly handled. The condo itself could use some work. Honestly, the pictures are a bit deceiving as the condo clearly isn’t a clean and sparkly like the pics show. It needs some major work. Deep cleaning, painting, repairs, updating of overall look. Some kitchen supplies were unavailable that you wouldn’t typically think to pack and bring with you. Like oven mitts! My husband burned his hand pretty bad trying to take biscuits out of the oven using the kitchen towels because they weren’t any oven mitts. Also- living room furniture is very uncomfortable. Despite all these things, the air conditioner worked perfectly and the view from the balcony was superb and what made the whole trip. Love the gated property and beach access. Pool and hot tub were clean and heated just right. We will be back but would properly try a different condo room.

My favorite thing about this home was after a long day of flying, and a quick tour of the condo and beach, I laid down on the sofa with the balcony doors open. I could hear the ocean waves. The air was a warm 65° (back home it was 20°) I took a nap. I would stir and think, Wow I'm on the ocean!
Other things I enjoyed was the beautiful view from the balcony of the ocean. Lovely place to watch the sun rise. Steps from the beach. Enjoyed the hot tub too when we could get to ourselves. I didn't want 8 floors up but it did give a more panoramic view of beach.
We came in January so weather was around mid to upper 60s. We unfortunately had 2 days of fog.. which was actually kind of cool at night.. Beach was great for walking. We could also walk to many local places to eat or shop. Many good places to choose to eat nearby on the island.
Place was cozy for just the two of us. It has room for a couple more people or children with the twin beds in second room.
As far as updates needed, I could do without the mirrored wall! The TV which I didn't think we'd use but we did was hard to change channels or volume. And there could be some freshing up with paint where walls and trim are getting dirty. Also some beach chairs would be nice.
But overall, I'd stay again!

This place so so relaxing and the view is amazing. Highly recommend staying here for some R&R.

If I had never rented a beach condo before, I would probably have given more stars. The location of this building is great! Wonderful view from the 8th floor, overlooking the beach, and you can also see the bay on the backside of the island. The property is well-kept: landscape, pool and bbq grills/tables all clean. The lobby and elevators clean as well. The check in/out process was quick and easy. There is a nice path directly to the beach with a shower and hose to rinse off the sand.

Our condo was clean and fresh-smelling upon arrival. Vacasa even left us a welcome card and a few gifts!

The unit is a bit small, but very functional. I wouldn’t try to put anymore than 3 adults in there, or 2 adults and 2 young children.

The property is older, so you have to expect that it’s had many, many layers of paint and several overhauls. The saltwater conditions are brutal on property. So, yes, you will find some rust on nails, screws, and many other metal surfaces.

Now for the critical part of my review. If you plan on actually cooking on your vacation, you might have some problems. While the unit has plenty of dishes, glasses and flat wear, it DOES NOT have a good set of cook wear or bake wear. So bring your fav skillet or casserole pan if you want. The coffee maker and toaster are functional but are old and have seen better days. In the pictures, the balcony is shown with heavy pvp pipe chairs. Those are no longer there, so bring your own folding chairs because you DO NOT want to miss that view!

Nothing about this unit caused us any heartburn. Is it perfect? No, it needs a little love. We had a relaxing trip, and that’s what we were after. For the cost of this unit, it’s a good value.

Awesome place
Elizabeth B. Jul 2020
if it wasn't for the view I would of given a 1 star. TV wouldn't turn on at first there was a shortage and i was able to get it on. I called maintenance because the 2nd room light wouldn't turn and then found out the microwave didnt work. The maintance guy did call me and stated he would be at the condo th e next morning I then let him know about the microwave but no one showed up. The shower knob also came off really easy which made it difficult for my kids to take a shower without it coming off. I felt the condo could use a bit upgrading to the appliances and overall items needed for a well functioning stay. I would not stay here again.
Manager response:
Hello, Elizabeth! Thank you for your review. We are happy to hear you enjoyed the spectacular view during your stay!

William M. Aug 2019
Great view and easy access to beach. Little dated, but you should be there for the beach not sitting in a condo all day!
Great for 2 people (adults and 2 kids ok) little cramped for 4 adults I would say. unit was as advertised.
Debra S. Jun 2019
Photos were exactly as in advertisement. Right on the beach

The views and endless soft sand.
Mitchell V. Apr 2019
The condo was very clean and tidy when we arrived. The view of the ocean is fantastic and it was super convenient to walk back and forth from the beach. The pool was temperature controlled and the hot tub was great. All around a great place to stay.
Wendy D. Jan 2019
Condo was clean, had great views of Bay and gulf. Easy access to restaurants, shopping, walking on the beach.
Justine S. Nov 2018
This condo was the absolute perfect choice for my husband and my trip to South Padre Island! First and foremost the view is out of this world! The condo was clean and well stocked! Plenty of kitchen supplies, towels, pillows, and beach gear. The condo grounds (pool, hot tub, grilling areas, beach access) were top notch! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would most definitely stay there again :)
Monica S. Oct 2018
The condo was clean and exactly as advertised. The pleasant surprise was that there were beach chairs and boogie boards in the bedroom closet. If you will need to hang clothes, be sure to bring your own hangers.
Deborah B. Sep 2018
It was awesome...very clean...and definately would stay there again:)
