Traditional decor and oceanfront attractions like a pool, hot tub, and sauna make this South Padre Island vacation rental the perfect getaway for couples or small families! The condo boasts views of the island and the bay for your next sunny vacation.

The rental is located in the newly renovated Aquarius complex, which offers a gated entrance and free shuttle access on South Padre and Port Isabel. This is the place to be to watch sunsets and the fireworks that take place in the summers. The community is close to just about everything, and within a mile of the city core restaurants and entertainment attractions!

South Padre is known for its laid back and friendly atmosphere, and the Aquarius complex pampers its guests with a 24-hour front desk, elevators, fitness facilities, game room, saunas, pool, hot tub, and picnic facilities complete with charcoal grills overlooking the beach!

Inside, the condo is inviting with traditional beach decor with unique wicker accent furniture. Large windows provide great natural lighting and overlook the bay and bridge. In the morning look for the flight of pelicans over the water, or enjoy a romantic sunset and fireworks at dusk.

An open-concept living room, dining room, and kitchen will let you spend quality time together. Whether watching a movie on cable or streaming your favorite devices with WiFi, you'll feel at ease in the space! Long days outdoors will fuel your appetite, and the kitchen is fully stocked for gourmet meals or quick sandwiches.

Modern appliances, including a dishwasher, will help you create inspiring dishes – from shrimp scampi to tuna casserole! Dine around the quaint glass bistro table with seating for four, or enjoy a snack at the breakfast bar with seating for two.

When you're ready to turn in for the night, choose from two bedrooms – one offering a queen bed, the other with two twin beds to comfortably lodge four guests. Bedrooms provide media entertainment, beach-themed decor with unique wicker furniture, and plenty of storage for luggage. Bedrooms share a full bath and laundry facilities are on-site.

Beyond your condo are wind-swept skies and bright blue waters. Host a barbecue for the Fourth of July under the shade of a pergola or lounge in the sun by the pool. Chaise lounges and a good book offer the recipe for a perfect afternoon. Active bodies can spend days boogie boarding and running in the waves, then ease their weary bones in the community hot tub and sauna!

If you're feeling adventurous, book a kiteboarding, scuba diving, or surfing lesson in town, or plan a relaxing dolphin watching or eco tour.

Loved how clean the place was and although it was hot and humid outside it was always nice and cool inside. Other than the bed being really firm, everything was great!

The sweet young lady at the counter provided us with a wealth of info about the island, she was very professional and fun!

The view was AWESOME, the amenities were abundant, and the staff was VERY accommodating. I plan to return to Aquarius Condominiums, and will suggest them to my friends and associates.

Close to the beach

This home was a sufficient space.

This was the worst place I have ever stayed in. I joked with friends that it actually may have been worse than a third-world prison, but not sure I was actually joking. 1) The smell upon entering this condo was terrible - a mixture of cigarette smoke and mold. There were car scents attached to the vents, and toilet paper stuck in some of the vents. The smell never got better. 2) Every single piece of furniture or bedspread had some type of stain on it. It made trying to sleep or sit down very disturbing. 3) The place was not clean. There were crumbs, grease and who-knows-what on all surfaces - counters, table, etc. 4) There was a giant pile of trash outside the front door (presumably from the people before). I learned that guests are supposed to take their own trash out - they did not. The bright spot in this was Joe from the front desk who took care of it for us even though he did not have too. The worst thing was the mold in the bathroom. 5) The TV did not work, the Wi-Fi did not work, there was NOTHING to help cook (every other VRBO I have stayed in at least had salt and pepper). I literally had to crush up potato chips for salt. 6) The pictures are extremely deceiving - especially the outdoor pool picture. There are no chairs to lounge on and the pool is not that big. The ONLY think I liked about this place was the proximity to the beach. I peaked in other condos and they were great - this one is just a person or company being cheap and not caring about the people who stay there. When we arrived I was in tears and reached out to Vacasa - no response. Beware of this place.
Manager response:
Hi, Amy! We are so glad you stayed with us and are sorry to read you were so unhappy with your accommodations. The trash is taken down with housekeeping; we would have been happy to send them back to address any oversights had we known of the need. The WiFi and TV have been fixed, and there are no car fresheners on the vents. Thank you!

The condo was right off the beach and close to stores and restaurants. The unit was clean.

Great hotel personnel were very nice and helpful

So disappointed with this trip, the place is old and dirty, no playground for toddlers , no park to walk near by, ocean water is so muddy, not much better than in Freeport,TX. And the tap water stinks so you have to use bottled water to brush your teeth.
Manager response:
We appreciate the guests feedback. The Aquarius is an older complex on the island, but does have a big courtyard, a BBQ and a large pool area. The beaches condition all depends on the weather that is happening, some days the water is clear and some days it is cloudier. The water supply comes in from the main land and our local staff has gotten in touch with the complex to see why the water may be having issues.

Great location on the beach. TV's were not working properly, and it took 3 days to fix, but didn't dwell on it. This was good quality for the price. Amenities at the Aquarius were fabulous. Great pool and hot tub!
Geoffrey T. Aug 2017
Good location right on the beach. The unit is cozy, but it is well equipped with a blender and all cooking utensils.

Jaime B. Aug 2016
Great location, on the beach. I like the fact that everything is gated. My condo had everything one would need to make the stay comfortable.
Demond W. Aug 2016
Great place to stay!!
Brenda A. Aug 2016
Not a very friendly place to stay, also it was not clean! Elevators do not have maintanence checks posted and they shake, it's scary ! The price was good, but you get what you pay for. Never again ????
Manager response:
We apologize that cleanliness appears to have been lacking; we will follow-up with housekeeping. The elevators appear to be in good working order at this time. Thank you!
Steven L. Jun 2016
We really enjoyed this condo. Its right on the beach and has everything we could ask for. Workout room, laundry facilities, nice pool, close parking & a helpful staff. The bbq pit under the pergola was great too. There were power connections on the pergola to charge phones and play ipod speakers etc. The room was well maintained and clean and had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. No hassles with anything, everyone was super friendly there. We will be back
Nancy S. Jun 2016
We were very disappointed with our stay. One of the photos shown is discouraging in the fact that it shows you a beach view. When In fact you have a view facing the street and the bay. Although it was nice as well we thought there was a beach view. The beds in the room weren't very clean, still having sand from the previous tenet and stains on the sheets. I would say the bedding need some updating. There was construction in the floor above so it was very noisy. Overall we were not happy with our stay.
Michael L. May 2016
The apartment is nicely situated. The elevator doesn't list last maintenance checks - a requirement in our home state. You will understand why I was interested when you hear all the creaks, groans and metallic squeeks.
The unit is certainly cosy in amount of space but also decor.
The view is across the island to the Laguna Madre, which is scenic but not the breaking rollers of the gulf.
