Smack dab in the middle of the town, this condo couldn't have a better location. Stroll a block to the east to find the beach, or meander around the neighborhood and check out the nearby restaurants. The free shuttle that runs around the island will even save you some walking time.

This condo features sophistical decor and updated appliances. In the living room, contemporary furnishings lend themselves to nightly conversations over a glass of wine. Flip through cable, play something on the Blu-ray player, or just use the WiFi to get online and relax.

A full kitchen offers an appealing alternative to dining out. With a blender, a slow cooker, and all the usual kitchen appliances, your cooking can be as involved or as simple as you'd like it to be. If you feel like getting creative and trying something new, you can clean up all the dishes fast with the dishwasher.

Head downstairs for a dip in the pool, which is shared with three other condos but has room for everyone to enjoy. When you're done swimming, grill up lunch on the community barbecue, and then stay outside to enjoy your meal in comfort.

The spacious master bedroom has a king bed of attractive, dark wood. With an en suite bathroom and a private balcony, the lucky guests staying in this room will love the option to have a quiet, peaceful space all to themselves. The other bedroom has a queen bed and access to its own bathroom as well. And with a sofabed in the living room, a total of six guests can enjoy this inviting space together.

This South Padre Island condo has everything you'll want for either a shorter or a longer stay. The private washer and dryer makes doing laundry simple and convenient. If you do choose to bring your dog, please note that there is an additional nightly fee.

Well-appointed and upscale, this condo is ideal for couples on vacation together. Whether you want to spend your time in or out of the water, there is always a lot to do on South Padre Island. A block away, the Padre Island Brewing Company has yummy craft brews and fresh seafood dishes. On the south side of the town is a bustling nightlife; head over and dance up a storm!

For water fun and games, check out Schlitterbahn Waterpark. With a heated indoor area, you can enjoy the water even when it's chilly outside. In the summer, go surfing or scuba diving, or charter a boat and catch some fish for dinner.

Book today and start counting down the days until your island adventure at this sophisticated Texas vacation condo!

Loved the location and closeness to the beach. Clean, spacious, and everything you need for your stay.
Terri B. Dec 2021
We really enjoyed our stay at Sea Turtle Haven. The place was very clean. It was much nicer than the condo our relatives had in a large high rise. It was an awesome place to stay with our dog, while enjoying the beach for a few days. I will definitely stay here the next time we are in the area.
Irene H. Oct 2021

Olivia H. Aug 2021
We have been renting condo units for about 4 yrs & by far this unit has been the best. It was kept well maintained & clean . We will definitely rent this unit next time we come down to SPI & recommend it to friends & family. Everything is so close to walk to like restaurants & the beach. Thank you for a great stay
Melissa S. Aug 2021
This was a great size for our family. It had everything we needed! It was within walking distance to the beach so no need to find additional parking. It was clean and other guests were quiet. I would definitely stay here again.
Jason A. Jul 2021
Very close to beach entry
Scott W. Jun 2021
Loved it! Great place would be better with cable.
Ricardo U. Jun 2021
Stay was amazing. Only complaint was master bed and sofa sleeper but they were not deal breakers. Overall extremely enjoyed our stay.
Manager response:
Hi Ricardo, thank you for providing us with your valuable feedback. We are very glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us. We appreciate you letting us know there is room for improvement with the master bed and sleeper sofa, and we have passed your comments onto our management team for consideration. Thank you for staying in a Vacasa home, and we hope to welcome you back in the future!
Daryl L. Jun 2021
The condo was well equipped and met our expectations. The parking is good (two cars) in a parking challenged area. The stairs up to the condo are longer than normal so if you’re mobility challenged, you’ll need a ground floor unit.
Dakota H. Jun 2021
Close to beach access at a great price
Eunice Y. May 2021
A true hidden gem that's across the street from public beach access. From my balcony, were able to see the conditions of the beach and we could decide if we wanted to venture out or not.

So well stocked and filled with things that made our stay easier. Large pans and utensils to make fajitas, check! Wineglasses and wine opener to drink our wine, check! Beach chairs to bring on our beach day, check!

Such a great experience and can't wait to book another vacation here.
Zach P. Mar 2021
What an great place to stay in at a great location. It's conveniently located across the street from beach access point #11, which is only a 1 minute walk from the condo. You can sit out on the back patio and watch the Gulf (albeit a small view) and drink your morning coffee (as I did). If the sand and surf isn't quite your thing the pool is large enough for a relaxing or fun time with kids (deepest point is 3 feet in the middle). There is a fire station right down the street across Padre Blvd so that is reassuring in case of emergencies. The beds in here were extremely comforting and there were nights that I could not wait to crawl into the massive king in the master bedroom. Plenty of space in the closets, and the master shower has a wonderful built in bench seat that just screams "sit down and relax under the hot water!". The bigger hotels and condominium complexes offer all sorts of amenities and extra services, but this was exactly what my kids and I needed. Our own full place, a lot of privacy, and just an great place to stay at for our vacation. I would love to continue booking this exact location for any future visits to South Padre Island.
Michael H. Mar 2021
Great location. Comfortable. Needed some kitchen items like teaspoons and bowls. Dining at counter. Friendly people all around
Manager response:
Hi, Michael! We have checked the kitchen inventory to replace any missing or scant items. Thank you!
Mara E. Oct 2020
The condo had everything we needed for a 10 day trip. We loved how close it was to the beach and to all of the local restaurants. It’s a nice quiet complex and all of the neighbors were friendly and welcoming.
Rachel H. Oct 2020
This location is spot on! Less than a 5min walk to the beach! Spacious condo with an amazing view of the beach. Neighbors were very friendly. I would 100% recommend this place to friends and family. I will definitely book this place again on my next beach trip!
Shane S. Sep 2020
We travel frequently and mostly to beaches. Decided to give South Padre a try. This place was a newer modern place with everything needed. Very clean and just the right size. Pet friendly was nice and it was across the street from the beach, easily walking distance. We loved our stay, thank you.
Jesse S. Jul 2020
The condo was very clean and inviting. The only issue was that the cable in the master bedroom was not working. We experienced some strong winds Saturday night as a result of hurricane Hanna and noticed water coming in from the door to the balcony. The threshold may need replacing. I have already recommended this place to friends and family.
Jazmine C. Jul 2020

Love the condo and location. Very peaceful. Keys very hard to get out, only had one. The road was under construction. Pocket door in master still not working. AND the cable was out until Last day mid day. I would definitely stay here again because it’s always very clean, location and peacefulness...

Very enjoyable stay in Sea Turtle Haven at the Waves condo. Our winter
Melanie R. Oct 2017
Close to the beach, cute property.
James A. Oct 2017
This had a nice location with a very short walk across street to the beach. It's on second floor so if you don't want to carry luggage keep that in mind. Kitchen is well equipped with everything you need if you want to cook meals.
The downside...the beds and furniture are old and worn out. Master bed was very uncomfortable with a sagging mattress. The condo is in need of some work. It was pretty run down and needed some repairs. If this property was maintained it would be a great place to stay.
Manager response:
We have repairs planned that we'll start as soon as there is some downtime in the schedule. We will also ask the owners about updating the bedding. Thank you!
Mayeli O. Sep 2017
Muy limpio todo

We rented the house for a week and enjoyed every minute of it. You can see the ocean from the balcony. The pool was nice for the kids. Everything was well manicured.
Carol W. Dec 2016
We really enjoyed our stay at The Waves. Check-in was easy due to the lockbox. It was so close to the beach and central to many shops and restaurants. The kitchen was large and outfitted nicely so I could cook a big holiday dinner. The beds were comfy and the AC worked well. It's great that the condo was pet friendly too! We'll definitely stay there again!
Kevin L. Oct 2016
This is a fantastic condo, very close to the beach and all the in town restaurants. I will definitely stay here again!
Michelle S. Sep 2016
We loved this condo. It was relaxing, in a quiet location and a right across the street from the beach! The condo provided everything we could possibly need for cooking, comfort and beach use. It was very apparent that the owner takes pride in the place and we appreciated the helpful check in and check out detailed notification emails. The balcony in the master suite provided a perfect place to watch the evening fireworks show. Will definitely be back.

Highly recommended!
Elizabeth R. Aug 2016

Everything was excellent I would definetly stay here again and would recommend for others as well. The beach is just a across the street, the area was quiet and condo was very nice and clean with extra beach chairs and canopy to use everything excellent.
Gail B. Mar 2016
The condo was exactly as advertised. Very clean and nice. We very much enjoyed our stay. The access to the beach is directly across the street. The pool is a bit small but very nice. The kitchen is very well equipped. The condo does not have a great view and it is slightly dark inside but overall it is in excellent condition and very nicely furnished. It was very clean. We had an issue with the lock box code so if you are arriving at the condo after hours you should have an alternate number to call in case you have issues. We would stay at this condo again!
Debra T. Mar 2016
We would definitely stay at Waves 4 again. The shower in the master bathroom is beautiful, and enjoyed sitting on the balcony. Only a short walk made it easy for beach access. The perfect spot for viewing the sunrise!
Phillip M. Feb 2016
very nice amenities, nicely located one block from the beach, would stay there again next year
Lisa L. Feb 2016
