My place is 5 min walking to Whitecap Beach, Schlitterbahn Water Park, North Packery Channel, Golf Course and Restaurants .
FYI, the condo is on the 3rd floor; anyone with difficulties walking or climbing stairs may want to take that into consideration. Since the condo is on the 3rd floor, you do have a good view to the beach. The place was very clean, sufficient amount of dishes for light cooking, and towels. I did see in previous reviews concerning the pull out couch being difficult to push back in; for us, it was a bit of a challenge. The amenities are great! 24/7 access to the hot tub, pool, and gym was very nice. The hosts were very responsive and hospitable. I would definitely re-book this place on my next trip to Padre Island.
We had a great time using this apartment! It was clean, comfortable and located near the beach. We did notice the sticker burrs in the carpet when walking barefoot, but don't know how the host would remedy that as I'm sure they are continuously tracked in. The fold-out couch needs to be replaced... the frame is bent and the bed slants and is uncomfortable. We suggest that it be made clear in the description that the apartment is on the third floor for possible tenants that have disabilities or limitations that would make climbing stairs difficult. Otherwise, the place was great! Having a washer/dryer in the apartment was an added PLUS!! Water was cool in the pool but the Jacuzzi was nice. View of the beach from the balcony was good. We only met the host's designee one time and that was at check-in. This was our first experience with airbnb, and we were very pleased!
Very nice condo! Friendly owner, and very responsive to the Internet issue we had. Once the internet was fixed, it worked well (although a little slow). The beach is perhaps 1/3 mile away, but you can see the beach from the condo. The pool and jacuzzi are very nice and the jacuzzi was at the perfect hot temperature. The unit was very clean, and I did not have the issue of the burrs other reviewers stated. The reason I gave this place 4 stars instead of 5 was that the sofa bed is old and uncomfortable. The sofa is uncomfortable to sit on, and the bed is very hard to put back into the sofa because the sofa frame is crooked. Also, the bed is a full size bed, not queen size. Otherwise, we really liked the place and would definitely stay there again!
The location was just down the road from the beach, so beautiful and convenient. Lala was a gracious host and met with us beforehand to show us the way to our weekend getaway. The kids had a blast and the location was great! There is a wonderful German bakery and pizza place within walking distance that were so yummy. Lala made sure to think of the little things to make our stay more enjoyable, like providing beach towels for our use.
