Thereís something to be said for a place that
attracts rowdy spring breakers as well as their
parents and their little brothers and sisters.
South Padre Island is known for encouraging
revelry during that boisterous period when
school lets out for a few days, but during the
other 51 weeks of the year a variety of people
will be strolling, swimming and savoring the
lovely beach setting.
This destination truly provides something for
everyone, including a vast array of vacation
rentals, so leave all pre-conceived notions
behind and simply plan on having a good time.
South Padre is the kind of place where whatever
happens, happens. If youíre the itinerary type
then itís possible to plan your day with boating
trips, sand castle-building lessons, meeting up
with your companions at one of the restaurants
or beach bars and visits to a few local
If youíre not the kind who needs to plan
everything down to the minute, itís likely that
youíll stay just as busy and stress-free.
Essentially, South Padre wonít hassle you or
demand that you follow any unspoken rules of
vacationing; itís a free for all of diversions,
distractions and delightful adventures.
Going along with this free-spirited idea is the
plentiful amount of vacation rentals in South
Padre. Hotels can be found all along the beach
and in the town, but renting a property adds a
touch of luxury and individuality to the mix.
Instead of a boxy room, instead of feeling
packed in too close to your neighbors, youíll
actually be able to breathe deeply, sleep as
late as you want, and enjoy the feeling of
living in an actual home or condo that meets and
exceeds your standards.
If youíve never rented a unique beach house or
cottage before, youíre in for a treat. No matter
what the composition of your group is; adult
friends or a big family complete with the
bouncing baby, youíll find a place thatís the
right size, the perfect fit and the appropriate
price range. Just like South Padre itself,
youíll find most of the vacation homes to be
quite accessible, friendly and ultimately worthy
of creating the fondest of memories.
If itís just you and your significant other,
choose a cozy condo with a balcony that will
invite intimate conversation, sunset-watching
and your own personal happy hours.
If youíre lucky youíll also have a whirlpool tub
and easy access to the beach, so start checking
things out now to discover what youíre looking
for at the best price possible. If youíre
bringing a larger crew, find a sprawling town
home or larger condo with bunk beds for the kids
(theyíll love the slumber party atmosphere), big
closets, a walkway to the shoreline, and
whatever special amenities you need.
A kitchen with all the trimmings will let you
save money by cooking a few eggs and pouring
bowls of cereal in the mornings rather than
heading out in search of a diner or fast food
joint. The smaller kids will be able to keep on
the same schedule as far as naps go, as heading
back ďhomeĒ wonít be a big deal. Everyone can do
their own thing without having to drive all over
the place or split up of for too long thanks to
your amazing location right on the beach.
