Upscale chateau w/ private pool, private W/D, & central AC - 1/2 block to beach
The Aries Chateau, located only half a block from the beach, embodies everything you could want in a South Padre Island vacation rental. With a private pool in the enclosed back yard and a grill on the porch, enjoy a vacation in privacy and comfort.
Located on the north end of town, this home is an easy walk from the restaurants and shops that South Padre Island has to offer. Heading out the front door, the walk to the ocean is less than a quarter mile. Decorated in an elegant and up-to-date fashion, the chateau welcomes guests who appreciate the finer things in life. The open living spaces encourage socialization and camaraderie, while allowing for individual simultaneous uses of the space. Sofas and chairs set up around a little table are overlooked by a flatscreen TV, complete with a DVD player. If none of the titles in the included DVD library appeal, flip through the cable channels for your favorite show. If you want to make sure you're not missing out on any news, use the wireless Internet to keep abreast of happenings in the wider world. If you're not in the mood to try one of the delicious local restaurants, the stocked kitchen offers an easy and appealing alternative to going out. Take advantage of the coffee maker and blender so everyone can enjoy their favorite beverage. With the dishwasher, you won't have to worry about quarrels over the dishes.
The dining table seats six and is right next to the kitchen for convenience. If you'd rather, dine outside for fresh air and proximity to the grill. On the main floor of the house, two well-appointed bedrooms feature lovely dark wood furniture and a calmingly neutral color scheme. Both the king bed in the master bedroom and the queen in the second bedroom face flatscreen TVs, and the master bedroom has its own private balcony. Upstairs in the open loft are two more beds, so a total of 10 guests can enjoy the home as long as six don't mind a slumber-party atmosphere. In keeping with that theme, there's a fourth TV in the corner of the loft. Two bathrooms mean that shower time can be a more leisurely affair, and with a washer and dryer you can feel free to pack light.
If you can tear yourself away from your private paradise, there are plentiful entertainment options to explore. Seafarers can choose between scuba diving and surfing, or push their comfort zones a bit and try out parasailing. For land-based fun, Clayton's Beach Bar & Grill offers regular Sandcastle Days with live music, workshops, and an Amateur Sand Sculpture Contest. Local restaurants, in addition to their amazing seafood, regularly feature live music. Whatever your interest area, you'll be glad you picked this charming Texas chateau for an exciting beach trip!

The location was close to the beach and we had our own pool.
That was a Plus in our book!
Pete C.Jun 2022
The house was very clean and very close to the beach access. The swimming pool was clean and well maintained. The only negative thing I can mention is that the hand rails on the outside stairs seemed a little unstable. This can be a concern for the elderly, handicapped or anyone that needs to have support while climbing up stairs.
Winston G.May 2022
This home was perfect for me and my family. It is very spacious and we loved that the pool was private and clean.
Kristeen G.Apr 2022
My husband was born and raised in PI and SPI. We love to visit and enjoy time with his family. This home was perfect for us. We have stayed here before and we highly recommend it.

Location of this property is perfect and right I think the heart of the island. We had such a great time and really loved the character of the whole beach house.
Ron S.Jul 2021
Close to the beach. Plenty of towels, etc. Having the pool was great!
Sara D.Jun 2021
We really enjoyed staying here. The pool was great and it is so close to the beach, restaurants and activities. We did get some rain and wondered about it effecting the chlorine but I wasn't sure how to reach out to ask. It was very clean and a great space for family. I highly recommend!
Felicia M.May 2021
The house was beautiful and very spacious BUT our pool was dirty very cloudy. We did call to have someone come over but that still didn’t help how dirty out pool was which caused most of our adults to not get in an enjoy. So cloudy that you couldn’t see when someone was swimming under water. Dishes where dirty and garbage disposal smelled bad and master restroom rug smelled bad like urine. Location was great and wrap around porch was beautiful.
Horacio Z.Mar 2021
Perfect location conveniently closed to the beach. We thoroughly enjoyed our vacation and the cute home. Pool was a big plus.
veronica f.Mar 2021
The house was in a great location and walking distance to the beach. The house is cozy but it needs a little tender loving care. One of the beds has the bottom woods broken plus the back room with the balcony is so hard to close. I also had issues with the wifi but those were fixed immediately :) These are minor little things which didn't affect our stay and I definitely will book again in the future.
Overall my family had a great time. The pool was a hit and it was very clean 👌
Hi, Veronica! We are so glad you enjoyed your stay with us. The bed has been secured, and the homeowner will soon be replacing the French door in the master bedroom. Thank you!

Armando S.Jul 2020
Great house, perfect location, has everything u need. The pool was a little dirty but no biggie, we still had a blast.
Emma M.Jun 2020
Absolutely enjoyed our weekend here!! The place was super clean, no pests in sight! The kitchen was fully stocked with all the kitchen necessities we needed. The AC worked very well! Cool when we needed it to be and adjusted to the temperature we desired very quickly. The pool was very clean. The restrooms had plenty of towels. We were walking distance from the beach with nearby free parking, we went fishing and caught so many fish! The grill needed some cleaning before use, but it wasn’t a problem- we cleaned it and used it, it worked well. My only problem was I did not see a recycling bin around...we had many bottles and can that could have been recycled. Other than that, we really enjoyed our stay here, wish we would have booked a longer stay- but will definitely be staying here our next trip back to South Padre!!
Andrea B.Jun 2020
loved being able to relax by the pool without worrying about strangers near our little ones is the best feeling, we enjoyed the loft as a kids hide out, we were able to travel with our fur baby and the wrap around porch is great for them to enjoy 😉
Lauren D.Jun 2020
Home was very clean and the kids loved the pool. Short walk to the beach was very convenient. My only problem was they only left us 2 trash bags and for 10 people for 4 days was not nearly enough.
Holly C.Jun 2020
This place was clean and very roomy. Very convenient and easy access to the beach.

Jesus B.Oct 2019
la casa esta muy muy bien para grupos grandes la alberca muy bien todo pero no estava muy limpio el piso y los baños yo siempre rento en vacasa porque me gusta la limpieza y las propiedades y confio en que mejoraran el servicio gracias.
Estamos felices de que hayas disfrutado tu estadía. Sentimos mucho que el alojamiento no se haya limpiado según nuestros estándares. Hemos seguido tu caso con nuestro equipo de limpieza y prestarán más atención a estos detalles en el futuro. Esperamos recibirte nuevamente pronto.

April F.Aug 2019
The house was very spacious for my family and I. We enjoyed the pool after being at the beach. Property manager answered back quick about any of our concerns. Would definitely stay at this location again.

Rachel G.Aug 2019
My family stayed here in July 2019 and it was a great stay. We had some concerns cause the prior renters must have some pets in the home that left their nasty smell and it was addresses right away. The home was freshly cleaned and the bathroom carpets were replaced which gave us a fresh breath of air. The kids loved the fact they had a big enough to have personal space when they needed. The beach is just a short walk away and we went all but 2 days of our stay there. Eric, our property manager was very helpful and professional. We would definitely stay here again.
Beatrice J.Jul 2019
Sandra R.Jul 2019
We totally loved and enjoyed the private pool! Do not get me wrong, sharing is caring but not having to be looking for our children over others and crowding was great!
Jesus B.Aug 2018
Everything was clean !!!
Carmen N.Jul 2018
House was perfect, clean and great location.
Extra bonus was the pool, so nice to relax after a day at the beach! Would definitely recommend the Aries Chateau.
Mirta R.Jul 2018
It was spacious. The 2nd bedroom downstairs bed was extremely noisy and uncomfortable. Everything else was great! The pool was nice and everything was clean.
Jesse W.Apr 2018
It was very clean and roomy . The pool was nice and they have everything that you'll need there in house . Will be going again for sure
mark g.Nov 2017
Very close to the beach and Wana Wana which has reasonable prices! The other end of the street has Burger Fi honestly one of the best burgers we've ever had. The house was nice clean and had every thing we needed. The pool is great!!!!!!!!!!!! There were a couple of minor things that needed fixing and Eric was at the house within the hour and got them taken care of, that rely impressed me. I would recommend this place to family
Ann H.Oct 2017
Everything was beautiful and clean. Very quick walk to the beach, great location
Sonyia R.Aug 2017
My family and I enjoyed this beach rental. Plenty of room for our big family (8 adults and 1 child).
Quick and easy access to the beach. Very homey and clean. We didn't have to eat out all the time because of the large kitchen that is included with the rental.
I would highly recommend this place.
Mariel D.Jul 2017
My family and I enjoyed out stay very much and we look forward to staying again at the same beach. I like how organized the house was and also very easy to follow instructions.
Sunday W.Jul 2017
We had two family with a total of four kids. It was AWESOME. Couldn't have asked for more. Clean quiet and the onsite pool was great.
Christopher G.Jun 2017
The location made this property great! The pool was the icing on the cake! Our family had the best vacation here and will booking next year!
Catherine K.Jan 2017
Nice open floor plan. We had 4 adults and 3 kids and we did not feel cramped at all even though we were stuck inside due to weather.
Loft area was great for the kids
Everything was clean and fresh
Plenty of towels and a washer/dryer too!
Would stay there again for sure!
Rebecca M.Jan 2017
The Aries Chateau offered a great location for our stay on South Padre Island. The beach was very accessible and many restaurants and shops were a short drive away. We also walked to the movie theater very easily. The king bed and queen bed rooms on the main level were very private, but the two queens in the loft were open to the living room (which made it difficult to sleep when others were up and about). That being said, all the beds were very comfortable. Though our winter visit did not provide the temperatures to enjoy the pool much, it was lovely to have that area - the many trees surrounding it provided privacy from most of the neighboring houses. We enjoyed this updated and comfortable home and would recommend it to others looking to rent in the area.
Priscilla R.Oct 2016
Overall the house was amazing. Great location! There was privacy in the backyard. We just had an amazing time with our friends and family and the atmosphere of the house only made it better! ????
Jose M.Oct 2016
Had a lot of fun in the pool
Karessa F.Sep 2016
The house was awesome!! The beds were so comfortable and the pool was fantastic! Everything worked and we had a great time!!
Andrea S.Jun 2016
Our family loved this place. We loved that it is kept up and had everything we needed. Having a private pool is worth a million memories. We plan on renting this place again in the future.
Lady J.Jun 2016
This was the absolute best location we could have chosen. We were far enough down to be away from all the traffic and close enough to be a hop, skip, and a jump to the attractions. The beach being at the end of the block was phenomenal and the corner store being at the other end of the block was super convenient! If we had less ladies, we would definitely stay here again. We had 6 ladies and more than enough space to accommodate each, except for the bathrooms, BUT the hot water lasted through all of our 15-20 minute showers -- back to back! The sun was just right where it was a comfortable swim every morning!
Michael S.May 2016
We were very happy with the house and the convenient location. The beach access is only a short walk. The beach area at the end of the block has a tiki bar and a volley ball net. The house was large and had all the amenities we needed for a family BBQ and fun in the pool.
Anna C.May 2016
Nice house with everything you need. The BBQ grill was great!
Shelly M.May 2016
Fun house and close to the beach. Pool is the best part!
