Property was just as described. Very pleased with cleanliiness and location. One tiny complaint would be the very small pool - when two families were in it there was no room for anyone else. Guests also had glass bottles by the pool and didn't lock the gate as asked to do. Guests with small children really need to keep an eye on them due to the unlocked gates.

Very pleased to find a place to rent that could comfortably accommodate my family (9 total, including myself, my wife, our 2 daughters, their husbands, and 3 grandsons 3 & under), just 2 weeks before the 4th of July long weekend, at a reasonable price. The website description & pictures were very accurate, the place was very clean, very well maintained, and the kitchen was well stocked with appliances, pots, pans, dishes, etc. Location was excellent, with the pool right next to it, with a shallow area and water features for the kids to play; there’s also a playground next to the pool. The beach was 5 minutes walking distance. Property is still close enough to a large grocery store (HEB, about 10-15 minutes away driving). Also, although we didn't eat out, there are many nearby restaurants, the closest one being 5 minutes away driving. Check-in/out was very convenient, all done online, didn't need to stop by an office to pick up/drop off keys (front door lock code sent via text message on day of arrival, check-out done via email sent link). Already thinking about making another trip next year. Highly recommend this property.

What a lovely townhome! Had the family there, plenty of room, great location, love the pool and playground! We will be back!

The condo was nicely furnished and decorated. We had everything we needed for a nice stay. The staff was easy to deal with and we would work with this company again. The description and photos were accurate which was a great relief upon arrival. We stayed longer than originally planned because we felt at home. If I could make one suggestion, it would be to invest in new mattresses upstairs. That was the only down side to the stay. They weren't the worst ever, but could have been a pillow top that we expected.

Trip to go birding along the south Texas coast. Unit was clean and excellent for two couples.

Very enjoyable! Plenty of space. Loved the king sized beds!! Office very accommodating. Well equipped rental. Short walk to beach. Only stones around property for pets to use, but clean up provided. We had an enjoyable time and family memories to cherish. Washer wasn’t filling with water properly. Hopefully it was fixed. Would definitely recommend and hope to go back in the future.

We had lots of living room space for family entertainment. Bedrooms were spacious as well as the bathroom showers. Pool was right outside our units back door and was not overcrowded. Unit was clean and cool ! Plenty of parking other than our two assigned parking spots. I was texted a door code when unit was ready and didn't have to pick up keys anywhere or keep up with keys which was great ! We would definitely stay here again !

Great vacation, the house was in a good location just a 10 minute walk from the beach. The house was in good condition and felt homey. The property had a few pools which were great to swim in when the beach was crowded. The only bad thing I could say is the stairs to get where both bedrooms are, are pretty steep. This particular unit is not designed for the elderly. Our 62 year old father could barely make it up and down. If grandma and grandpa are staying home then this unit is perfect for a family get away! If the grandparents come, find a unit with a downstairs bedroom.

That's the first we've heard of the walking complaints but we appreciate your feedback. Hope we see you back again soon.

I've not had many better experiences when renting properties by the beach. The complex was clean, mostly well maintained, and a reasonable walking distance from the beach. Minor gripes are that there appear to be no restrictions on pool hours so we had people in the pool past midnight making a good bit of noise, the washer in our unit was unbelievably loud, and there was no view but those are pretty minor issues.
- Bryan P. from Leander, Posted: 06/29/2018
Thank you for the feedback. This complex has security on site so we will address it with them.

I was amazed how clean this unit was! My husband and I brought our 3 children and then hosted my mother-in-law and brother-in-law and his girlfriend. There was plenty of room. I loved that there were 3 full bathrooms. I did not like the coffee maker at all. The thermos type pot didnt keep the coffee hot long and for whatever reason there were grounds in the pot regardless how we prepared the coffee before brewing. I wish that there were more kitchen amenities - such as a hand mixer. It was Christmas and it wouldve been fun to make cookies and such. Our biggest concern (that Padre Escapes has since assured us was resolved) was the electricity issues we experienced. When running large appliances like washer, dryer, dishwasher and maybe even the air conditioner, the house would start shorting out. The lights wouldnt work. My husband had to go outside several times to flip the breaker. The day before checkout, the entire houses power kept going out. Padre Escapes moved us to another unit 2 doors down. That was fine and dandy except that I spent 2+ hours packing up and moving when I couldve been enjoying the last bit of vacation. We called Padre Escapes after returning home to Make sure the staff was aware of how serious this electrical issue was (the breaker panel was literally sizzling). The representative I spoke with assured that there had been an electrician out there the day of checkout (December 26) and that the issues were repaired. It worried us for future guests to all of the units being that they share walls. Nonetheless, we had a great time and the location was perfect. Padre Escapes was a wonderful place to rent from and we plan on using them in the future.

We really appreciate your feedback. Safety issues such as this are always a concern. I can assure you we have had an electrician out to address the issue. This is the first we've seen at this unit or even at this complex. Rest assured we will get the issue addressed. Thank you again for your feedback, hope we see you back again soon.

Awesome place that is pet friendly. Beautiful, comfortable, great location, clean, has everything we needed. Other guests did not clean up after their pets and there was evidence everywhere outside. They should be glad such a nice place even allows us to bring our dogs!

My fiancé and I lost our home in the hurricane and we stayed here while we were looking for a new home. This condo was breathtaking. So beautifully decorated and laid out. Everything about this place was perfect right down to the swimming pool being right outside the back door. Its even gorgeous at night. I highly recommend this place to anyone traveling to the area. The beach is also a 30 second drive and you can easily walk if you prefer.

We and all our kids had such a wonderful time the kids met new friends a we are able to walk to the beach. We drive down from Colorado every year for a week and will be back next year.

Our experience was great! We loved the rental and the pool area was just steps from the door. Was really a great thing to have with four kids.
A couple of things that would be great to improve would be to leave extra dishwasher tabs, extra towels and trash bags for all trash cans. Also, for some reason, the trundle beds (the ones underneath) were dirty. Almost like they didn't have clean sheets or maybe that after the last people were there the sheets weren't ever replaced. Underneath the top sheet the sheets seemed ok, but would have changed the sheets if there were extra sheets available.
- Kate S. from Dripping Springs, Posted: 08/16/2017
Thank you for your feedback. Dirty sheets are not something we typically see, especially with the housekeeper who does your unit because she is the best one. However, we do all make mistakes from time to time and perhaps she did just overlook them. We apologize for this inconvenience, we will be sure to address it with her to be sure it is not an issue going forward. Thank you again for your feedback.

The property was in a great location ! Beach was within walking distance. The house was clean and plenty of room for our family . We loved the pool outside our back patio! Would come again !!
- Anonymous from Helotes, Posted: 08/08/2017
Just want to say this is one of the best places I've ever stayed in!. Place was super clean they had everything we needed like extra towels, dishes etc etc. The only thing was that I would suggest is that it was a little confusing as we got to our room seems like they have two of the same numbers (one in front of the adult pool and the other one next to the kitty pool. Other than that we had an awesome time! we will definitely go back and stay there.
