Recent South Padre Island vacation rental reviews

We have a nine person family with kids ranging from 10 to 18 and thought this house was totally perfect for our needs. We were a little hesitant about some of the reviews we read previously, but after spending the last eight days in this home, we decided that the reviewer‘s sound like a bunch of Karen’s because this is honestly a great set up. It’s an older house, of course it has some quirks, but overall it’s comfortable, spacious, and you really just can’t beat the pool and the Beach access. The location itself would be really hard to beat. It’s right in the center of everything, and walking distance of tons of restaurants and shops on one side and on the other there is just the public access to the beach. We had to contact The management twice, once to get the Internet working and once about a minor issue with the pool. On Both occasions, the management was so nice, and helped to resolve our questions quickly. There are all kinds of beach toys, a cart to carry everything, chairs, umbrellas etc. for your use and that was really handy for us. The beach is literally a one minute walk from your doorstep and is so beautiful. The pool is very warm, and well-maintained. As long as you know that you’re renting an older place, and don’t expect the Ritz, you should be happy. We would definitely come back again!

Where are our South Padre Island, TX vacation rental homes?

South Padre Island is located right on the Gulf of Mexico, across the causeway from Port Isabel, Texas. This is a popular vacation spot all year round between the Northerners who head south for the winter, spring breakers, summer vacationers, and wealthy families from Mexico. You can feel right at home in this paradise when you stay in one of our South Padre Island beach house or condo rentals.

Outdoor Attractions near our South Padre Island vacation rentals

South Padre Island has tons of activities to choose from for people of all ages and interests! Water sports are very popular here thanks to warm, shallow waters and the sandy bottom. Kiteboarding has become a well-known hobby since the winds can be fairly strong, and you can take lessons from a professional in town. Snorkeling, scuba diving, and surfing are also tons of fun and easy to access here, and you can even take a sandcastle-building lesson!

Go dolphin watching, do an eco tour, or check out rehabilitating sea turtles at Sea Turtle Inc. There are even three campgrounds on the island, so you can listen to the fire crackle while the waves roll in, or you can get some adrenaline pumping through jet skiing, skydiving, or parasailing.

This area is also bike friendly, so it's easy to rent out bicycles with your friends or family and explore the town. Many birds and other flora and fauna pass through this area with the seasons, and the Laguna Madre Nature Trail is a great place to do some bird-watching and enjoy nature's gifts.

Nightlife and Restaurants near our South Padre Island beach house rentals

With many adorable shops and boutiques in town, it's easy to get some new gear to keep your beach vacation looking fresh. South Padre Island also boasts more than 50 bars, restaurants, and nightclubs, and is renowned for its nightlife (especially during the spring break months). Get the party started after the sun goes down, or just relax with your loved ones and enjoy the fireworks that happen every Friday and Saturday night.

Day Trips from our South Padre Island rentals

With family-friendly attractions and beautiful beaches, the resort town of South Padre Island offers plenty of ways to spend your days. However, when you stay in one of our vacation rentals or condos, you'll be able to see all that Texas has to offer! For more of an urban experience, head north to the coastal town of Corpus Christi. Although a bit of a drive from South Padre Island, this bustling city is known for its tourist attractions, shopping options, and proximity to the beach and ocean.

Before you head back to your vacation rental, make sure to visit the undeveloped coastline of North Padre Island. Pristine and protected, you'll find that this landscape is home to a variety of wildlife and over 380 species of birds! 

Vacationing to South Padre Island in the Winter

Thanks to its position on the Gulf, South Padre Island boasts more moderate temperatures than most other destinations in Texas. Even in winter, the lowest readout you'll see on a thermometer is 50°F, and that happens maybe once a year. Because of this, South Padre Island has become a favorite retreat for Winter Texans looking to escape the cold and snow of more northerly regions. When you need a break from the cold, do yourself a favor and arrange a stay in one of our lovely vacation rentals or condos - you won't regret it!

Our South Padre Island house rentals are ideal for anyone looking for a warm and sunny break from it all. With the countless beaches, a multitude of nightly events and festivals, and endless outdoor activity options, this place is a Texas mainstay for good reason - go ahead and check it out for yourself!
