This was a wonderful little stay. I felt right at home in this rental. The location is amazing! The pool and hot tub were divine at night, and the beach was amazing during the day.
It was a very peaceful Xmas in a well kept condo. I really liked the deco of the unit, very appropriate for SPI. Travelers need to look carefully at the pics, because what you see is exactly what you get! : ) Nothing less, nothing more. The pool is appropriate for the summer since it is not heated, but for the winter the hot tub was really-really nice! I loved the easy access to the beach as well as the location. One male renter, in his sixties, didn't like my beautiful Golden Retriever when we were at the elevator, and made kind of ugly faces at us, but to compensate his companion was a really nice woman who actually loved Hugo and asked him to please get her a dog like mine! Life... :) Imagine HIS face when he heard that... :)
We looked forward to our visit to South Padre Island without knowing anything about the place. We booked this rental on the basis of a fairly good price and nearness to the beach. We knew it would be small but we didn't know there would be no way to let any outside air into the apartment. There was one window and one door onto a small balcony. We were on the 5th floor. My husband went to open the window for some fresh air and the top section came crashing down on his fingers. It had been screwed in at the top with some short screws, but in reality, was only being held by the latches on the window. We did call Laura and she sent a maintainance man right up. He was helpful and re-screwed the window shut with my husband's help. We couldn't leave the balcony door open as there was a rule and a stiff fine for doing so. We really missed the fresh air and ocean smell in the apartment. In the photos, the balcony appears to look over the ocean when in reality it is on the side of the building and looks straight onto the next building. Booking with Trip Advisor was easy and worked out very well.
Had nice time. Location good. Bed little firm for our taste. Well stocked with everything you need. Enjoyed it
