An Unbeatable View for Your Stay
From chic condos to vast villas, our beachfront vacation properties come in all shapes and sizes to suit the needs of your individual vacation, with private and community amenities designed to sweeten the deal even further.
Our beachfront properties enjoy breathtaking views of the beach, right outside of your front door. Spend your time basking in the sun’s rays from the breezy balcony or patio of your vacation rental. Walk down to the glittering waves and soft sands of the Texas Gulf Coast and immediately begin your South Padre Island beach day of snorkeling, scuba diving, paddleboarding, fishing, and more!
Within the interiors of our beachfront vacation rentals, you and your guests will enjoy the open floor plan and ample space that make day-to-day living and entertaining hassle-free for the duration of your stay. Cheerful Texas sunshine diffuses into these spaces through wide windows that overlook the awe-inspiring spectacle of the gulf. Tranquil neutrals juxtaposed with bright yet elevated tropical décor create the perfect ambiance for fun and relaxation on your South Padre Island vacation.
Plan a movie night in the living room with your guests using the cutting-edge flat screen television, kicking back on plush designer furnishings and enjoying each other’s company. Whip up a homemade feast or reheat your scrumptious leftovers from one of the local South Padre Island restaurants nearby in the custom full-sized kitchen, complete with gourmet details like top-of-the-line appliances and massive granite countertops. Beachfront vacation rentals have something for everyone!
Other forms of downtime recreation and relaxation can be found in features like refreshing community or private pools, perfect for those rare moments when you crave a little more privacy or convenience than heading down to the beach.
When you’re ready to call it a night after hitting the town for dining, souvenir shopping, or drinks at the bar, spacious bedrooms with comfy beds and smooth sheets call out for you to lay your head down for a blissful night’s sleep.
ACTIVITIES AND ATTRACTIONS ON SOUTH PADRE ISLAND
South Padre Island has a plethora of sightseeing and recreation in-store for you and your guests during your time here!
The island is flush with beaches, from popular beaches known for certain water-based activities to remote and secluded beaches where you can drive far from the crowds and find your own place in the sand. Try planning a beach day at spots like Rockstar Beach, Dolphin Cove Beach, or on one of the 20 miles of beaches accessible through Andy Bowie County Park. If you’re going to drive on the beach from the park, just make sure you’re driving a vehicle with 4 wheel drive that can actually maneuver on the sand!
Speaking of sand, pay a visit to the largest sand castle in the country for a bit of kitschy, family-friendly fun!
You can even party on the beach at locations like Clayton’s Beach Bar, where you can dance, drink, and play the night away at the biggest beach bar in Texas. Other great bars in the area include laid-back WannaWanna, where you can relax on a charming, rustic patio with live music and tropical drinks, and Padre Island Brewing Co., which is well-known for its fantastic craft beer and yummy pub grub. Beachfront vacation rentals are waiting for your call!
Of course, there’s more to South Padre Island than just beaches (even though we don’t blame you for being excited about the beach)!
If you love animals—and honestly, who doesn’t?—it’s worth it to pay a visit to places like the South Padre Island Dolphin Research and Sea Life Center, where you and your guests can see marine animals up-close and learn about their habitats. Sea Turtle Inc. and South Padre Island Birding and Nature Center are also fantastic.
Schlitterbahn Waterpark gives you the chance to spend time in the water without limiting you to the beach, as the park is home to both indoor and outdoor waterslides and amusements, as well as an enormous wave pool right next to the ocean. Gravity Park and Three Flags Over Padre also provide quaint amusements, such as thrilling reverse bungees, classic mini-golf courses, and fun go-kart tracks.
Wherever your days take you on South Padre Island, they’re sure to be memorable when you stay with Franke Rentals.
