S. Padre Condo rental

  • 3 of 5

The condo is much smaller than was you perceive from the pictures. It was adequate for myself and my husband but would be cramped for more. The view from the living room is stunning and the complex is very clean overall. One of the bar stools was broken and not attached to the top so reported that to management co. Kitchen supplies were not adequate i.e. One small glass and one large tumbler to drink out of. It seemed I was constantly washing dishes.The wine opener does not work so bring your own. I echo the sentiments of others in that the mattresses need replacement. If this was done, would consider staying there again for future trips. Pricing on this was adequate. The management company was great and appreciated the 24/7 hours by staff. Loved the restaurants and beaches there!

RELAXING TIME

  • 3 of 5

We rent units like this all the time for our long weekends to SPI from Austin (3-4 times/yr). This unit met most expectations. To critique would be to say there is no place to hang any towels. Bathroom or kitchen. The master bed is uncomfortable enough to where I slept in one of the hallway bunks two of the three nights we stayed there. The elevator in Florence 1 is always slow. Other than that, the unit was clean and furnishings were nice.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. I am glad we were able to meet most your expectations but I do wish we could have provided you with a Five Star stay. I am sorry to hear that the mattress was not to your liking, this is a hotel firm mattress, if this ever happens to a guest we would be happy to provide a mattress topper to make the bed more comfortable. It is our goal not to meet expectation but to exceed them. I am happy to hear that the condo was clean and furnishings were nice. I know how important a clean fresh room is when I travel. Again, thank you for choosing Padre Island Rentals for your vacation.

Good Spot for a Getaway as a Couple

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I stayed here for 4 nights. This condo on the beach was very clean and comfortable and had everything you need for a nice vacation. The beach did get a little crowded at times. However, we found that taking the main road (Padre Blvd/Texas 100) north gave access to several other less crowded beaches with only a short 10 minute drive.

The experience with the leasing company was also very positive. They were quick to get us checked in and out and they keep the place spotless.
