Overall, the condo rental was great. During the first night, the stove and cable tv was found not working. However, after making a call to the after hours service, the two problems were properly addressed within 1 hour of notification. Loved the one bedroom and bunks. Only drawback was the extremely noisy king bed which sounded like getting on an air mattress and the pull out couch bed pad was thin where the support bars underneath were felt. Location to the beach was great and the youth pool area was great. For the price and amenities, this place is a bargain! Will definitely visit the property again for future vacations!

This unit is on the corner and is nicely decorated. My only complaints are: a/c unit is outside the master bedroom and is very loud, TV in master bedroom doesn't work, King size bed in master is hard and the box springs are loud, the front door is hard to open(needs repair), shower curtain rod is not attached to the wall. I had a nice stay in this unit, but would probably choose another one next time.

Unit is very spacious for 2 people and could comfortably accommodate up to 4 if it's not all adults. Check-in & checkout process extremely easy. Location is perfect if you want to be near the water. The beach is about a block away and you can easily trek on foot or drive your vehicle. Swimming pool is a few steps away from the unit on the other side of the parking lot. Beautiful pool and is why I reserved here because all other pool pictures of facilities in the area looked much smaller & just "OK." Pool area has plenty of seating and tables. Charcoal grills scattered around that we didn't use, but did see a few families utilize. Parking for the unit is right at the front door, so we liked that. Plenty of lighting for the porch and that was a plus. I found the decorations for the unit to be nice and simple. Plenty of kitchenware if you want to cook/eat in. Fridge has a icemaker which was extremely handy for beach/pool days. Coffeemaker is ity bity. My cons: master bed is extremely loud. It is like lying down on a board covered w/bubble wrapped styrofoam that crunches at every move. It was annoying. There is ONE hook in the entire unit that you can hang something, and it is in one of the bedroom closets. It's a beach rental, but you have no where to hang wet towels and swimwear-- not even in the bathroom!! We had wet items draped all over the chairs, doors and bunkbed rails which I found to be silly. There are stains on the living room chairs and when we arrived I did a walk-through and found stains on the decór pillows in the bedroom. I was disgusted and glad I hadn't brought my blacklight. There was dust on the corner wall of the bedroom, little crystal rocks scattered on the corner floor of the bedroom, and dust fuzz in various areas of the living room. Indications to me that no real cleaning had been done. It is a nice unit and I would rent again, but I would bring my own sheets, blankets, bath towels, and hooks the next time around.

We came here last year and were thrilled with our stay. This year’s stay was no different. We had a blast during our vacation! And are looking forward to coming back next year.
- Arthur L. from Kyle, Posted: 07/09/2019
Love, love, love our condo stay. It was close to the beach, Texas State Aquarium, Turtle Rescue Center and other fun things. Our only complaint was the mattress in the master bedroom. It was hard and makes a crunchy sound when barely touched. Other than that, we had a great time and will definitely return soon.

Loved this condo! Spacious and beautiful with just about everything we needed to survive vacay. Floor could have been cleaned better and the water pressure from the kitchen sink was less than desirable. I realize it’s a beach house so the floor is bound to get dirty but we had an 8 month old crawling around and her shirts and knees would get filthy from the floor. Other than that it was a fantastic place to get away and we would totally stay here again
- William H. from San Antonio, Posted: 06/03/2019
Really nice except for the king mattress, really bad bed had to sleep in one of the twin beds
- Joann G. from San Antonio, Posted: 03/19/2019
We'll check into that mattress, thank you for the feedback.

The property was exactly as described. Very well supplied. Padre Escapes was very helpful and accommodating. The unit was supposed to have a hair dryer. We couldn't find 1 in the unit. I called Padre and they were there at the door within an hour with a brand new hair dryer.

Thank you for the feedback, guessing you just clicked the wrong option on not recommending to others. Hope we see you back again soon.

Family vacation with my grandchildren and their parents
- Cathy A. from Uvalde, Posted: 08/12/2018
The room was perfect and beautifully decorated. It was very clean and comfortable. It was very close to the beach and the swimming pool was just as beautiful. Bed was very comfortable. Check in and check out process was the easiest to date. Definitely recommend this rental property!
- Ceasar G. from San Antonio , Posted: 08/08/2018
This was so awesome. Most relaxing and loved the comfort of the temperpedic bed.
- Christine M. from San Antonio, Posted: 07/26/2018
We loved this condo!! Beautiful and comfy. Clean, great location, awesome amenities. Ample room for everyone. We just loved it and want to go back soon!
- Gabriela I. from San Antonio, Posted: 07/11/2018
Loved the beach decor for this unit! However there were a few things that we didn’t like. The sofa bed was broken, & too uncomfortable to sleep in that we had to just sleep on the couch. The master bedroom bed was extremely uncomfortable & made a lot of noise with even the slightest move. Very few to no utensils, & there was only 2 towels for our family of 6 which we found an to be inconvenience... the unit was very spacious & loved the added square footage but will not stay at this unit again. We throughly enjoyed the 14914 Village Beach dr instead since it had everything we needed, plenty of utensils, towels, sleeps 7 & had added square footage as well.
- Monica R. from San Antonio, Posted: 07/07/2018
Thank you for your feedback. We do stock additional towels in the master bedroom closet as well as on the foot of every bed. We would've happily fixed any issues with the sleeper sofa had we been made aware. We will get by there now to check it out. Thank you again for your feedback and we apologize for these issues.

Our overall experience was very good. Convenient parking directly outside the front door for easy unpacking. For a 1 bedroom, all the space was utilized well and it worked for our family of 4. We would definitely go back!
- Anonymous from Cypress, Posted: 07/05/2018
Our family had an amazing time at our stay at The Village By The Beach. Their condos are absolutely amazing and fully equipped for your needs. Our 4yr old and 9yr old absolutely loved the bunk beds. We went on vacation to spend time on the beach But I honestly believe we spent the most time in the luxury of our room and by their Amazing pool. My boys did not want to leave. We will be returning before this summer ends and for many summers to come.
- Katie J. from Pleasanton, Posted: 06/26/2018
Rental is new and in great condition. Great location for us as we love The National Seashore and whitecap beach. 4 adults in our party and was more than enough space and sleeping arrangements were perfect. Will rent again!
- Joseph N. from San Antonio, Posted: 06/05/2018
The property was very clean, well stocked and extremely comfortable. Check-in was a breeze and the staff at Padre Escapes were very accommodating.
- Jewel N. from Cypress, Posted: 05/09/2018
We had a great stay at this condo with plenty of room to sit and dine (we had 4 in our group). The bbq grill is right outside the condo and the pool is close. The beach is an easy walk if you don't have a lot of stuff to bring or you can drive.
I do have a few items that were bothersome but we managed..The bed was soooo loud to sit on and getting in and out. It wasn't sqeeky but a loud crunchy noise I slept on the couch to avoid waking my husband as I toss n turn a lot.
Kitchen can use some important additional items:
CAN OPENER (we had to cut open a can with a knife) BOTTLE OPENER for wine.
LARGER PAN (had to cut bacon to cook)
COOKIE SHEET condo only had a brownie pan I had to cook biscuits in batches
and maybe a plastic platters to bring out to the BBQ
we made due but the first night we ate late as we arrived in the evening so we could not go by an opener and it took longer to cook breakfast with limited items. We will be and hopefully the condo will have additional needed items that most condos already have.
- STANLEY M W. from San Antonio, Posted: 04/03/2018
We enjoyed our stay in this lovely appointed condo.The furnishings and decor were beautiful and comfortable. It was so clean and quiet!We will certainly use Padre Escapes and ask for this Unit on a return visit,
- Gayle A. from Springfield , Posted: 02/06/2018
Wonderful stay! Just as beautiful as the pictures. Easy check in and very professional. Great location between the water and stores. The bunk beds are bigger thean appear which was great considering the one room. I was very satisfied with the cleanliness. And would defiantly recommend this condo.
- Diana K. from Conway, Posted: 08/22/2017
The place was very clean and nice. Great location. My only complaint is about the bed in the master bedroom. It was probably the most uncomfortable bed I have slept on in my entire life! After the first night, my husband slept on the couch (not sofa bed - those are always uncomfortable) and I slept on one of the bunk beds. Other than the bed, everything else was great.
- Heather M. from Temple, Posted: 08/16/2017
We had a great time! Very clean condo! Little BBQ pit right outside. Bunk beds were big enough for teenagers. The living room was much bigger than expected. I do not know much about the island - but seems to be in a growing area. Most the surrounding properties are all new and just as clean. 2 parking spaces reserved right outside the door. Great pool just around the corner - all pictures of the property are a good reflection of the property. Beach is about a 30 second drive, 5 minute walk. We drove everyday and parked right on beach. One day we drove to the national park and had a good time, but the beach right there is just as good and less crowded.
- Anonymous from Magnolia, Posted: 08/08/2017
This was perfect for our family of four! I am very picky about cleanliness, and this place passed the test. Condo was very spacious, clean and comfotable. Walking distance to beach was awesome! My husband and 10 yr old love to drive over, set up and hang at the beach all day, so me and my teen could walk back and forth when we were ready. Complex had nice pool and grills. These are one story condos surrounded by 2-3 story condos. I usually prefer a view, but all the positives here greatly outweighed a view.
- Tia P. from Cedar Hill, Posted: 08/05/2017
The Rental Unit was comfortable, except for the lighting in the bedroom & Bathroom. Needed brighter lights to see to get dressed & apply makeup.
Bed Mattress was wonderful.
I enjoyed eating at MM on Bob Hall Pier and Broklyn Pizza Co & beaching at National Seashore. Pools were nice & great for the children. Need security, as Cooler was taken out of my sons pickup one night.
- Lynn W. from Frost, Posted: 07/16/2017
Sorry to hear about your cooler. The back of a truck is never a good place to leave a cooler but this is the first type of incident we've had like this. Thank you for your feedback.

First time venture to Village By The Beach. We usually stay closer to Mustang Island/Port Aransas. We were skeptical and once we pulled in and entered the condo, wow. The layout of the property was neat and clean and user friendly. All duplex style condos, one floor layout. No stairs to climb and two parking spaces right in front of your door. Love it.
Next, the floor plan of the 1-1 sleeps 5 comfortable. I have 3 daughters and the 2 youngest love the bunk bed cove, my eldest daughter is a sofa sleeper. My wife and I had plenty of room in the master. All the amenities are in the kitchen, open style for you to cook while your kids sit at the bar to ask you what's cooking.
The pool area is very nice size but could be slightly bigger for the amount of condos there but for the most part very nice for the kids.
Beach Access was perfect, short walk or 30 second drive to pick your spot on the clean beach and stay all day. If I needed to make a run back to the condo, 30 seconds to grab whatever, it was awesome.
The location is near gas stations, stores, and restaurants if you wanted to take a short drive after a day at the beach.
We loved our stay and we loved it so much we made reservations to stay again in July.
- Ray T. from San Antonio, Posted: 06/20/2017
Very friendly and easy to schedule, book, check-in, locate and access. Enjoyed the quiet location convenient to pool and beach. Like new in every way! Looking forward to another trip with our teenage kids. Great experience!
- Monica M. from Boerne, Posted: 05/31/2017
The rental was above and beyond what I expected. It was a much needed quiet getaway with the convenience of the beach a block away. Couldn't have asked for anything more.
- Wyatt W. from Lakewood, Posted: 05/16/2017
The condo was clean, pleasantly furnished & seemed spacious for a 1 BR rental. It doesn't have a poolside patio, but those condos that are by the pool have inconvenient parking not near the rental entrance. The only problem was there are no bedside lamps beside the master bed or by the bunk beds, which is fine for people with Kindles/Nooks, but not for the rest of us...
- Kelley F. from Wimberley, Posted: 04/25/2017
Had a nice experience staying here. Beach was a 2 minute drive from the rooms. The room was clean and had everything we needed. Pool was awesome too. I am looking forward to our next stay.
- Michael C. from San Antonio, Posted: 03/18/2017
We loved our stay. Pool was perfect for our toddlers. When we return we are contacting you for our next stay.
Only thing that was an issue was the water pressure. The kitchen faucet had no stream that was good for washing or even rinsing.
- Jessica G. from Lincoln, Posted: 03/16/2017
Going to Padre off-season was a GREAT idea! We loved the convenient location of the rental and the beautiful pool and well-kept grounds. Booked the same unit for my next vacation already!
- Kristy B. from Magnolia, Posted: 11/01/2016
This is a brand new unit! Very nice! Very clean! We stayed in late September, during the week, so it was very quiet. We basically had the pool to ourselves. Pool was very nice. Unit is walking distance to beach. Great stay,! Highly recommend!
- Anonymous from Mamou, Posted: 10/10/2016
We are a senior couple, stayed 10 days here. It is close to the beach, a number of restaurants and groceries around. We liked JB German bakery. Awesome.
Nice friendly staff.
