Choosing Your South Padre Island Vacation House Rental
There are numerous ways that you can experience South Padre Island when it comes to lodging. Why opt for the commonplace hotel room experience when you can enjoy your own personal, private vacation rental from Franke Rentals? Our vacation rentals are highly preferred, as they offer all the amenities of home and more. You get to choose your vacation lodging experience that suits you whether you are looking for an intimate space for a romantic getaway or a large space for a family vacation.
Our rentals come highly recommended as they include not only the basic amenities that you would find in a typical hotel but also other features such as laundry, spacious private balconies and patios, direct access to the beach and much more.
We make sure that all of our rentals keep the customer in mind. Our luxurious amenities, high-end touches, personal interior decor, and spacious seating areas are only a few reasons why our properties stand out among the rest. Our condominium rentals offer private outdoor spaces, like a private balcony or deck overlooking the bright blue waters and white sand beaches, along with shared amenities, like a perfect swimming pool to cool off in during a hot summer day. Our bigger properties, like our homes and apartments, offer private outdoor spaces and even private pools, backyards, and front yards, which are perfect for kids and pets to safely play outside.
Not only do we have ample outdoor space in all of our rentals — since the Texan sunshine is such a great reason to spend your entire day outside — but we also have cozy and spacious common areas inside of all of our apartments, condos, and houses. Our properties offer spacious living room areas, complete with cozy couches and plush chairs that make it the ideal spot to hang out, play a game of cards, or watch your favorite movie on the smart TV after a long day of exploring. Plus, the dining rooms offer enough seating for all of your guests so you can sit, relax, and have a five-course dinner with one another! Or you can sit here and sip on some cocktails, have a few appetizers, and play a board game at the formal table.
Not to mention, our kitchens are the best of the best. In some of our rentals, we offer stainless steel and brand-new kitchen appliances that make you want to get in the kitchen and actually make dinner! In other rentals, we still offer high-end and new appliances that make it easy for you to whip up any type of meal using the oven, stove, refrigerator, freezer, microwave, toaster, or coffee pot for a fresh brew in the mornings.
Along with all of our high-end interior and exterior amenities, one of the main perks of our rentals is the seclusion. We know how annoying and relaxing it can be annoying and not relaxing for you to book a crowded hotel room, only to have tons of kids running through the hallways, loud parties going on next door, and a stressful time during your vacation. Instead, we offer seclusion, peace, and alone time.
The best feature of our vacation rentals is the privacy. You’ll get to enjoy all that South Padre Island has to offer while basking in the comfort of your very own South Padre Island vacation home rental courtesy of Franke Rentals.

But where should you go if you are feeling a bit peckish on your first day of vacation? Fortunately for you, there are hundreds of restaurants, cafes, and eateries that are going to give even the pickiest of eaters something they will love to eat.
One of the best breakfast spots in South Padre Island is Yummies Bistro. This down-home and casual place on Padre Boulevard is one of the best for those who want a filling breakfast and yummy drinks. We like the banana stuffed French toast as a sweet start to the day with one of their famous lattes — complete with nautical-themed latte art!
Another fan favorite is the Grapevine Cafe, a local and tourist favorite that churns out sweet dishes, like Belgian waffles and chocolate chip pancakes, and savory favorites, like fried chicken and waffles, eggs benedict with hash browns, salmon benedict with home fried potatoes, and yummy burgers for lunch. With endless coffee, you can’t go wrong heading here in the morning!
We also love going to Josephine’s Kitchen on the Eastern side of South Padre Island. Not only do they offer all-day breakfast and lunch specials that change every day of the week, but there are all-American classics that are mouthwatering and amazing for any time of the day. We love the Tex-Mex dishes, like the chicken and beans taquitos, along with the classic breakfast plates, like sweet blueberry French toast or fried chicken and maple-glazed waffles.
Our last favorite is the Cafe on the Beach on Gulf Boulevard, serving up new American classics, endless coffee, and good vibes. Located in the Palms Resort, this upscale breakfast place is a perfect spot for any meal of the day. For breakfast, we recommend getting the Palms French Toast Sandwich or the Eggs Benedict Florentine with hollandaise sauce, hash browns, poached eggs, and sauteed spinach. For lunch or dinner, you can’t go wrong with some of their famous seafood! Try the steamed mussels, oysters Rockefeller, peel and eat shrimp, crab cakes, or creamy seafood bisque on a colder summer night.
