Beachfront condo with great balcony views & a resort pool - dogs welcome!

Enjoy speculator views and quirky tropical decor from this beachfront, dog-friendly South Padre Island vacation rental offering instant water access and a community pool near the heart of town! Perfect for couples or fishing buddies, the condo offers all the comforts of home plus a fantastic location.

The vacation rental is located in the La Playa complex, a family-friendly community with private beach access and a pool! Ride the free shuttle on South Padre and Port Isabel, or walk to the fresh seafood eateries, night clubs, and cafes near home.

The beach-themed condo is made inviting with white wicker accent pieces and tropical fish decor. From the living room sofa you can watch the sun set over the beach or a movie on cable! In-house WiFi will keep you connected to local events, and central AC will keep the space cool when you need a break from the sun.

Enjoy intimate group dinners around the bistro table for four, or serve yourself a quick snack at the breakfast bar with seating for three before heading out boogie boarding. The kitchen is well stocked with modern appliances so you can start your mornings with coffee and later, treat guests to a home made dinner with fresh-caught fish! The complex even offers a fish-carving station so you'll never worry about clean up.

This charming beachfront condo provides one full bath and two bedrooms to sleep six guests. The master room is cozy with a queen-size bed, workspace, and media entertainment. The second room is ideal for younger visitors as it offers two twin beds with unique bamboo accent furniture including a workspace (or game space). Extra guests can leave the shades to the balcony open for a sofabed with a view! Dogs are also welcome to come along for an additional nightly pet fee.

Your private balcony offers views of the wind-swept skies and waves rolling into the beach and you can usually view the magnificent flight of the brown pelicans. Unwind around the bistro table with a pitcher of margaritas. La Playa offers beautifully landscaped grounds just beyond the beach, including a community pool, shared grills, and a patio. Read in a chaise lounge underneath the sway of a palm tree, or splash with kiddos in the pool. Beach towels and outdoor gear will stay fresh thanks to a community laundromat.

With miles of shoreline, you'll never run of out beaches to explore! Rent kayaks, stand-up paddleboards, or snorkeling gear in town, or try your hand at kiteboarding – a popular island activity. Guides will lead you through eco tours, into a sea turtle rehabilitation center, or on an adrenaline-fueled skydiving trip!

The island is very bike-friendly, so you can explore by pedal power or ride the free shuttle around town. Each evening, the coastline comes alive with dance clubs and bars, including a fireworks display every Friday and Saturday night. Island time moves a little slower so you can dive into your passions or discover new homes!

You don't have to look far for fun in this charming Texas vacation rental. Experience another side of the Lone Star State today!

Comfortable furniture, beautiful view and pet friendly!! We enjoyed our stay. Miss Annabelle was most friendly and helpful. She told us lots of info on where to go eat--etc.

Loved being so close to beachand the view from balcony of unit
Timothy G. Sep 2018
We enjoyed our time here. We are a no frills couple and we were so excited to bring our dogs along. Great view of the sun rising every morning and easy access to the beach as well as nearby restaurants and shops. We felt at ease as the community is quiet and peaceful. We hope to return next summer.
Marilyn V. Sep 2018
Excellent location. View of the beach from condo balcony is beautiful. Great assortment of kitchen amenities to prepare meals. Felt safe since condos are a gated community that only tenants have code for. Have stayed here before and it is always an enjoyable experience that makes your family vacation wonderful!
Rachael J. Aug 2018
It is nice and cosy with a great view and amenities. This is our second time staying. This is our favorite place. They even had an extra dog bowl. Everyone slept comfortably. Best part is waking up to the view of the sunrise. Next time definitely staying longer

The location was perfect right on the beach. The walkway from the condo to the beach led u to an area of the beach that wasn't crowded. We had a roomy balcony with a beautiful beach view. Ceiling fans would have been helpful, there was one box fan, but for a two bedroom another one would have been good. We enjoyed out stay and
definitely will return.

The view of the ocean is pretty
Cynthia O. May 2018
The view was beautiful! We chose this condo because of the dog friendly status, but it was people friendly too! Everything was as expected and our stay was extremely enjoyable.

We’ve vacationed at LaPlaya since 1985. First time in #205. Other than the very spartan and uncomfortable furniture, all was the same as other condos. Added problem with cockroaches in the kitchen. Very poor pool maintenance, cloudy for 3 - 4 days.
Rodney M. Dec 2017
Rite on the beach it was an older building but clean and maintained well
Richard M. Oct 2017
We went to get away and relax and this property nailed it. We spent a lot of time walking along the beach and in the surf and when we weren't on the beach we were sitting on the balcony enjoying the view.
Vicente T. Oct 2017
There were a few issues, but the additional positives over shadowed them. Its location was superb and the complex was nice and quiet, the pool seemed to be only used by myself and my family. Although the convential accommodations of a hotel were not available, the home feel and privacy were exceptional. Very suitable for family trips, especially if you like to cook your own meals and not deal with many guest.
TOM F. Oct 2017
I spent most of my summers in the Rio Grande Valley as a child, and loved coming to the beach with my grandparents...I had not been back to SPI in over 30 years !! (Life happens....) I was excited to share the experience with the family, and don't think I could have chosen a better location or unit. The kiddos had an absolute blast at the beach, and the unit was in an ideal location for playing in the surf or at the pool. A +++++++

We will be back, hoping to make it (at least) an annual trip !!! Thank you for everything....
Minerva R. Oct 2017
We enjoyed our stay and would definitely do it again.
Marie Z. Sep 2017
La Playa was awesome! Quiet & close to the beach. Lovely accommodations and comfortable beds!
Richard U. Sep 2017
Enjoyed our stay. Very quiet property. Easy access to the Beach. It was great being able to bring our dogs along on our vacation.
Brandi C. Aug 2017
Amazing view of the beach from the balcony! Can watch the fireworks poolside of the condo! Private beach access and plenty of room on the beach! Comfortable and relaxing stay...recommended for vacation.
Sharon G. Jul 2017
I would've given condo #205 a high five score but the bug problem brought it down to three. I shouldn't have had to go through that for the price that I paid.
I would be willing to give it another try at another vacasa property. I enjoyed the beach and my weekend overall..
Manager response:
It's great to see that this guest had an overall good stay! The home has been sprayed to address any concerns of pests; this should no longer be of concern. We are looking forward to future stays with us again!
Donald M. Jun 2017
Very nice condo, with a beautiful view
Jan M. Jun 2017
We have stayed at La Playa probably 8-10 times over the years. We love the closeness to the beach and it since there are only about 20 units the beach is never crowded. It is very family friendly and other guests have always been considerate and courteous.
Patricia V. May 2017
Beautiful week on SPI. Condo is older but all that is needed for a beach vacation. Great location.
Keith H. May 2017
I'm deployed in Afghanistan and rented this condo for my wife and daughter for 4 nights. The process was very easy and the emails sent to me were very informative. My wife and daughter loved the condo..Was clean, fully equipped, great location. Thanks for making this trip special.
David N. Apr 2017
Love this place. This is the second condo unit I have at this property. The unit was clean and well decorated. It was comfortable and having an ocean view of the gulf and beach is a wonderful thing. Grounds were well maintained and the location to other attractions is great. Would love to stay here again and have another relaxing vacation.
Juana G. Apr 2017

Mike F. Dec 2016
Nice clean unit. Older but inexpensive. Well worth it.
Gary W. Oct 2016
For a father & son fishing vacation this is a great place to get away. Everything you need is at your fingertips or close by.
James B. Sep 2016
Quiet, cozy, awesome!
Rene V. Sep 2016
This condo is perfect!!!! Nicely furnished and plenty of kitchen tools, dishes, pots and pans. Beds very comfortable! Loved the balcony/deck. Enjoyed sitting out there and taking in the gorgeous view of beach and gulf. The La Playa property is super clean and beautifully landscaped. Pool is warm and very clean. Especially liked that the gates to enter the property had privacy locks so that tenants only can enter. Even the gate that leads from the property to the beach has coded entry. We have been coming to SPI for the past 25 years, and this condo and property are the nicest we have stayed at! Can't wait to return! It is a piece of tropical paradise right on the island. Thanks so much for a great week!
Catalina M. Aug 2016
Loved the location, beautiful views????, comfortable ... We have come to spi for over 40 years and have stayed at several locations, this is our favorite.
Adam S. Aug 2016
This condo was great for our party of 4 adults one child and 2 small dogs. It was wonderful to be right on the beach. We watched the sunrise every morning from the balcony. The condo was clean and very nice. We loved it and our time there. Hard to beat!!
Erica C. Aug 2016
Great place and location!!
Gail P. Jul 2016
LaPlaya had a perfect location with a beach view, and only steps from the beach. The condo was not luxurious, but had the amenities we needed for a weekend stay. The office staff was helpful, even loaning us their pump to air up our tubes.
Donald M. Jun 2016
Excellent condo experience
Gus F. May 2016
I almost hate to write this but we found the best bargin on Padre. So don't go there, leave it for me.
James C. May 2016
We had a great time! Loved the condo and its location. The view is beautiful and the condo is very comfortable. We used the pool everyday as well- we actually had it to ourselfs. Easy walk to the restaurants in all directions. Be sure to drive north to the end of the road to see the dunes and picnic on the beach here is a must.
Kristal M. May 2016
We were very pleased with the location, overall accommodations, and property.
Alon S. May 2016
