    Our 3 homes, all on East Gardenia St., at the middle of the block among other private island homes, are a leisurely 2-3 minutes walk to the beach.

    All 3 luxury homes are new and charmingly decorated with hardwoods upstairs and tile floors downstairs plus their own beautiful pool/hot tub. You can really relax in luxury and privacy, after a fun-filled day at the beach, which is rarely crowded. Our homes are centrally located on the Island. East Gardenia Street is 2 miles north from the Bridge. There is great shopping, restaurants, golf, fishing, water sports, SchlitterbahnBeach Park, and many attractions nearby. There are numerous advantages being in a private villa. Our caretakers will assist you with any needs or questions you might have.

    2/20/2007 - WE bears like to travel. While many bears (and people) don’t think of going to South Padre Island during the colder months because most bears are hibernating during the winter, I like going during the off-peak season because it’s less crowded.

    This home was much bigger than we imagined. The beds in all five bedrooms were so comfortable that Goldilocks couldn’t decide which one was the best. I got to stay in the master bedroom which was fit for a king. It has its own porch and bathroom with a jetted tub. But don’t be sad if you don’t get the master bedroom because this house has 4 other great bedrooms and the downstairs bedroom is really like another master bedroom.

    Probably one of the best parts of this home is its private swimming pool and spa which is equipped with comfy chairs for sunbathing. The pool area and back yard are filled with beautiful flowers and lush landscaping. Mmmmm; you know that bears love hibiscus flower tea and honey, but I was on my best behavior and didn’t eat one flower (well maybe just one). Hibiscus House is located a beary quick walk (one-half a block) to the beach and is centrally located near stores and restaurants, some within walking distance.

    We really enjoyed the kitchen which was used a gathering place for our group. Whether you’re looking to make breakfast in the morning, tropical drinks in the afternoon or a full gourmet meal for the family, this kitchen is equipped with everything that you could want and need.

    Upon booking, the owners provided us with details about the home, check-in and check-out instructions, contact information for their local maintenance person, and a complete list of local attractions, restaurants and suggested activities. They take the guess work out of visiting a new destination. The hosts of this home have truly thought of every detail which makes for an extraordinary vacation. My stay in the Hibiscus House was beary nice, I am sure you will beary much enjoy it too.

    South Padre Island, a town with style - a folksy, warm, inviting style that welcomes visitors from all walks of life is located on the tropical tip of Texas just 25 miles north of the Mexican border and is THE premiere resort in Texas.

    This 34 mile long stretch of white sand is bordered to the east by the Gulf of Mexico and to the west by the Laguna Madre bay. The conveniences and attractions of a modern resort coupled with miles of pristine island terrain is what draws thousands of visitors to the area each year, and has brought many back to live.

    The natural beauty of its beaches, its vibrant business climate and the friendly people that call the IslandUnited States (ranked as one of America's top 10 beaches), with the emerald water of the Gulf of Mexico home matches South Padre's rich history. The white, sandy beaches of South Padre are known throughout the serving as the perfect backdrop for spectacular sunsets.

    From sunrise to sunset, the Island is the perfect playground for sailing, fishing, windsurfing, dolphin watching, horseback riding, shopping and golf, just to mention a few. As the day winds down with spectacular sunsets over the bay, the evenings come alive with dining, dancing and music. Large selections of fine restaurants are available for your choosing, and many will even cook your catch.

    While its many amenities make South Padre the premiere vacation spot in the state, the location of the Island also makes it one of the premiere spots in the state to observe wildlife in its natural state, and to find that allusive bird to add to your list. One of the best spots in the United States to see all of the regularly occurring rails, South Padre has over 300 recorded species to date, and the list continues to grow, as do the bird watchers.

    With year round moderate temperatures, South Padre is the ideal vacation spot for everyone. Whether you are a family looking for a week long get away, a winter visitor looking for a warm spot during the cold months in the northern states, or a college student looking for the best spot to relax during Spring Break, South Padre Island is your choice. xxx
