We have the ideal spot for you and your family. Forget spending all of your time wandering around a city — you want to be by the bright blue water, boating docks, and the sea breeze on your face! Check out our bayfront vacation rentals on South Padre Island, Texas if you want a relaxing, fun, and exciting vacation that you can enjoy to the fullest. These rentals are calmer and better for long stays, so you can really relax and destress from a hectic holiday season.
As soon as you enter the home, you will immediately notice the far-reaching views that stretch long over the bright blue waters and the sparkling waves on the bay. You can spend hours and hours going boating, fishing, tanning, kayaking, or canoeing on the calm waters. We love going on the bay to teach our kids how to swim, learn how to stand-up paddleboard, and go on other nautical adventures before hitting the ocean.
While you take a break from the plethora of watersports, you can relax in your private yard. Lay down on one of the comfortable chairs, get a tan on your face, and read a book to relax. Your kids or your pets can play in the grass of the front and backyards while you keep an eye on them from the comfort of your own recliner chair. Once it gets too hot, hop in your private pool to cool off! You can also head out here early in the morning before your guests wake up to have a relaxing start to the day. Brew a fresh pot of coffee in the modern kitchen, head to the pool area, and get in a few laps as you watch the sunrise.
Once you head inside, you will see why it is hard to ever leave. The open floor plan and neutral color scheme make our vacation rentals on South Padre Island beachfront area seem even bigger than they already are. We love the ease it takes to get from one room to the next, ensuring all of your guests can have a place to sit and chat with one another. The neutral color scheme and the tropical decorations really make it feel like you are in a cozy and chilled-out beach house! Lay down on the cozy couch, prop your feet up on the coffee table with your cup of coffee or beer, and watch a show on the smart TV.
After a full day of being outside and on the water, it is time to eat! You can go out to dinner to one of the nearby seafood restaurants on South Padre Island, or you can cook in your modern and spacious kitchen. Even if you are not a master chef, you will love using this functional space to whip up some quick appetizers, cook a five-course dinner, or simply serve happy hour cocktails before 6pm!
The kitchen features granite countertops to serve finger foods, stainless steel appliances for storing and cooking foods, and high bar top stools for your guests to sit, chat, and have a few drinks before you head to one of the nearby SPI restaurants. We recommend getting a shrimp tower to split with the table!
Before you head out on the town, you may need to freshen up in the bathroom. Our bathrooms all contain ample counter space, modern appliances, and resort-like amenities. Soak in the tub to ease your aching muscles from hours of stand up paddleboarding or rinse the sand off your feet in the modern shower.
Once you head into town, there are a few must-visit spots that you and your group will absolutely love! During the day, head to the South Padre Island beachfront to dip your toes in the water and sit in the hot sand. If you head to Laguna Madre Bay, take a boat on the water, try and catch some fish, or swim in the gentle waves.
Other fun activities to do in the surrounding area during the day include dolphin cruises, pier fishing, and visiting the nearby lighthouse. Port Isabel offers far-reaching views, great photo-op spots, and public parks that are perfect for picnics and soaking in the bright sunshine. The best fishing spot is arguably Andy Bowie County Park for trying to catch some trout to bring home for a nice home-cooked meal!
In the evening time, we recommend bar hopping between the seafood restaurants, cool cafes, and laid-back bars. Head to Bar Louie to enjoy this American gastrobar with a casual vibe, complete with buffalo chicken flatbread, craft beer, and shareable plates. You can’t go wrong with the mozzarella sticks, flatbread, IPA pint, and other appetizers to start the evening off right!
Continue your tour by heading to Padre Island Brewing Company to sample beer from this locally-owned hidden gem. Grab a shareable plate, like the fried calamari or cheesy pizza, and pair it with one of their dozens of craft beer selections.
If you are in the mood for a more filling dinner, we recommend going to Gabriela’s to sample one of the many Italian plates, like fried mozzarella, hearty pasta dishes, cheese ravioli, healthy salads, and the savory pepperoni pizza. After all, you need some heavy food to soak up the beer or wine!
Another great Italian spot on the island that is well-known to tourists and locals alike is the Meatball Cafe, offering a real taste of Sicily in the middle of the downtown area of the island. We recommend getting the spaghetti and meatballs — an all-time favorite and classic, featuring huge meatballs, tangy sauce, and homemade spaghetti. Yum!
For a romantic night or an upscale evening with your guests, head to the Sea Ranch Restaurant to soak in the marina and waterfront views, white-glove service, fresh seafood, savory steaks, and tasty drinks. If you are in the mood for sunset views, this is the best place to be.
