While some of the reviewers on TripAdvisor say that their units were dated & run down, our condo was very nice! It had been recently remodeled and had all new tile floor, granite countertops, beautiful tile work in the remodeled bathroom, and all new decor. We rented directly from the owners on vrbo.com.
We had a very nice view of the beach & ocean from a balcony that stretched from the bedroom to the living room. We sat outside in the morning with coffee & the evening with wine... watching pelicans fly overhead & watching the waves crash on the short. Very peaceful.
The beach was one minute from our door, and the kids (ages 10 & 13) loved the pool, which is located in the courtyard. The pool was tastefully landscaped & the outdoor furniture is new. The water in March had to be over 90 degrees. Some units overlook the pool & others overlook the beach.
If you are a birder, this place is a very short walk away from the South Padre Birding & Nature Center -- just up & across the street. The Sea Turtle Rescue Center, which the kids loved, is directly across from the office. It is also just two properties away from a large public park located just to the north.
We liked this location because it is at the very north end of the "strip." We came for a relaxing family vacation & the beach and wanted to avoid spring breakers. These condos appear to be mostly rented/ owned by retired couples who walk the beach with their dogs, which suited our family just fine! It is a quiet place. We liked the laid-back atmosphere & would rent from this owner again.
