Recent Texas Gulf Coast vacation rental reviews

What an amazing house! Our stay at The Blue Pelican was perfect in every way. The house was spacious and spotless and would be perfect for a large family or several groups of friends. The weather wasn't perfect, but we stayed entertained with the many games that were available in the house! So many great memories made. We are already looking forward to our next stay! ❤️☀️🏝️

This beach house is clean, well-maintained and nicely furnished. My girlfriend and I stayed here for a long weekend we loved it. It was very intimate and comfortable. Just a block from the beach. We could hear the surf when we opened the windows at night.The east and west facing patio deck was perfect for eating our breakfast and watching the sunrise as well as watching the sunset. It was a very pleasant stay and very affordable. We recommended it to all of our friends and family.

Texas Gulf Coast rentals in the South Padre Island area

Considered by many to be the classic Texas beach destination, South Padre Island boasts calm waves, wide beaches, and endless aquatic adventure. Rent a boogie board, surfboard, or just beach chairs, and enjoy the Gulf of Mexico’s water. South Padre is a hub for boating, fishing, and parasailing---pretty much anything that can be enjoyed out on the water. Book a charter (or your own jetski) and explore beyond the shore. At the end of the day, you’ll have your comfortable South Padre condo rental or beach house rental as your home base.
