About Dean and Martha Isaacson
Dean (professor) and Martha (administrative assistant) both retired from Iowa State University (Ames, IA). We have four children and eight grandchildren. They all enjoy spending a week or more in the winter on the beach each year. We spend six months in Texas as 'snow birds' and the rest of our time in Iowa, Colorado, and visiting children/grand children. We have decided to avoid snow!
Dean and Martha Isaacson purchased this Condo in 2017
Why Dean and Martha Isaacson chose South Padre Island
We first visited Sunchase IV in 1990 as a renter. We continued to rent a unit every January until 1999 when we decided to buy a unit. When we first entered the unit and saw the 10-foot-tall window wall facing the Gulf we were sold on the unit. The entry is very bright and cheery and gives a feeling of comfort when you enter. Almost all units in the Sunchase IV Resort , including this unit, have living areas facing the Gulf and bedrooms facing the Laguna Madre bay. This leads to a variety of views and either sun or shade at all times of the day. The bedrooms are on the 6th floor which keeps any noise in the 5th floor living areas away from the sleeping areas. Speaking of noise, the building design minimizes sound from other units. We already knew about the unique amenities of the Sunchase IV complex since we had taken full advantage of them for many years before we purchased this unit. Most complexes have pools and hot tubs and some even offer tennis, fitness rooms and saunas but Sunchase IV also offers racquetball, badminton, pickle ball, a heated pool and a steam room. This made the decision to buy an easy one!
What makes this Condo unique
We always enjoy our time on South Padre Island. We enjoy walking the beach. We have a favorite route on the beach to the jetty where we watch fishermen, windsurfers, swimmers and dolphins. On some of these walks we hunt for ghost shrimp that Dean uses for bait when fishing. Several times a week Dean will take the short walk from the condo and cast either ghost shrimp or frozen shrimp into the Gulf. When fish are biting, we eat the freshest fish available, often at a local restaurant where they “cook your catch.” On the occasional windy or rainy day there is still much to do at Sunchase IV. We play racquetball, badminton, and pickle ball in the air-conditioned racquetball courts. We lift weights and use the treadmill or elliptical machines in the fitness room. We then follow this with a relaxing dip in the hot tub or heated pool. Of course when the grandchildren are around, they try to do it all. After a day filled with enjoyable physical activity we like to relax in the two recliners facing the flat screen TV. I must admit that we sometimes fall asleep while watching one of our shows but this usually means we had a full day and the comfortable chairs encourage total relaxation. The one who falls asleep asks the other how the program ended.
During March we only rent to families or groups where each member is 25 or older

Wonderful Sunchase IV condo!
This condo was amazing! It was very roomy with nice sized rooms, 3 full bathrooms and was very clean and well maintained. It offered a gorgeous sunrise view of the Gulf that we enjoyed every morning! Plus it was conveniently located on the island with easy access to everything. We will stay here again if we visit South Padre again!
Great for price!!
This condo was PERFECT for our trip! I threw this together last minute to run down to Padre to take my kids to the Schlitterbahn waterpark. I initially looked at staying at the Schlitterbahn resort. I am SO GLAD I didn't do that! It would have been more expensive to get just a small hotel room at the resort (granted - waterpark tix were included, but wasn't worth it). The owners were SUPER friendly and responsive and made me WANT to choose their property even though I had several to choose from! We got what felt and operated like a 3 bedroom home with a full kitchen and laundry and amenities for a very fair price! It was a VERY nice place that we thoroughly enjoyed and would definitely recommend to others! The beds were VERY comfortable and the kitchen lacked nothing that we needed to prepare food, etc. We were VERY happy with these accommodations and we definitely plan on returning to Padre in the future as a result of our great experience!
Beautiful Views Steps to the Beach!
We just loved this condo! The condo felt like home the minute we walked in but with awesome ocean views and just steps to the beach. Coming from some place that is very dry this was so refreshing. We stayed 6 days and enjoyed every minute! The only complaint is that the beds were so comfy it was hard to get up in the morning! The owners were extremely responsive. I would definitely recommend this condo and we will be back! :)
