My husband and I stayed at South Padre Island's KOA this weekend. They have a super clean, nifty Airstream Trailer they rent. It was nearly new and spotless. It came with everything we needed for a relaxing weekend getaway (totally furnished and equipped, down to kitchen soap, a hair dryer and morning coffees).
It was like a mini bed and breakfast experience, without the breakfast. Instead, it has a delightful new patio, picnic table, porch style table and chairs and two colorful Aderondic chairs, a great barbecue grill as well as all tools for it....and a terrific inside kitchen that had a large refrigerator( separate freezer), microwave and stovetop.
The bed was a queen, I am sure, as we has plenty of room, and the firm mattress provided us a great night's sleep. It was just the two od us, but four could stay without too much trouble.
Right on the property is a neat area with raised chairs foe viewing the bay, and maybe relaxing with a drink whipped up in the trailer. The pool was surprisingly lare. We were told it was built inside the original cistern located on the property...really neat. The shower rooms were kept in perfect condition and were modern, with pedestal sinks and tiled private showers. First class!
The property also has darling little casitas, or cottages that Re also new and available for rental. They even have a handicap unit, cozy spots for two and larger ones for groups up to eight. We had a tour, and again, everything was beautifully maintained. We could see why this is an araed winning KOA property.
The 19th Pier Restaurant, right on the property was welcoming and had delicious food, so we did not have to drive to eat out. The restaurant has air conditioned areas, outdoor, windless spots and strictly out in the breeze locations. We choose the later and watched the HUGE full moon rise. What a night...and their Key Lime Pie was good, too...Try the appetizer with raspberry chipolte sauce and spinach in cream over fried oysters. What a winning combination.
With deep sea fishing trips available on property and a marina next door, this place is great.
The managers, Stacie and Tom treated us like family- Linda, Phil and Jim, like old friends. We definitely hope we can return soon.
