Great little condo by the beach! Perfect family spot, definitely will be back. Only con was that we couldn't find Wi-Fi to connect devices.
John E. Apr 2022
This place was perfect for our beach getaway! The beach was just across the street. The house had two bedrooms one for us and one for the kids. The house was clean and cozy.
Randy M. Mar 2022
Access to the beach and local businesses was perfect!
Curtis D. Feb 2022
Very kid-friendly place, location is super. More spacious than it looks in pictures which was a nice surprise.
Allen F. Feb 2022
We enjoyed our first stay in Texas. The house is comfortable and well equipped. The bed is comfortable and liked having a TV in the bedroom. We made several meals there and enjoyed coffee on the deck while watching the waves come in from the gulf. The pool/chairs is great for relaxing, reading or taking a nap. The area is quiet and we felt safe staying there. Really appreciated the off street parking for the units. This area has easy access to the beach and walking distance to some restaurants and shops. We used the bike path along the main street and didn’t have any trouble with drivers being impatient with us. We visited the Farmers Market while there. We would recommend this house as a vacation spot.

Ruby A. Aug 2021

shannon p. Aug 2021
The home was clean and inviting. They had all kinds of beach items for use there as well which was a great surprise.
McAllen F. Jul 2021
Great location on the island. Overall unit was clean and provided a great experience. The dishwasher was not in working order, wifi was not available and the bunk beds need to be fixed due to safety concerns. For the location, cleanliness, and price I rate it 5 stars and would most likely rebook in the future.
Manager response:
Hi, Carolyn! It was our pleasure hosting you and we are happy you enjoyed your visit. Thank you for bringing up items that need our attention. We confirm Spectrum came out and serviced the WiFi. A new dishwasher was installed in the home and the bunk beds are in good condition. We look forward to hosting you again soon!
Robert F. Jul 2021
House was cleaned other than the roach seen under couch WiFi connection was terrible either on or off other than that good stay.
Sheri P. Jun 2021
We had 3 boys and the second bedroom was perfect for them. Pool on property was great for a swim while we cooked out. Quick walk to beach. View from master balcony was great for morning coffee!
Yolanda E. Jun 2021
Great time and nice weather
Stephanie L. Jun 2021
This rental had all the room we needed for a vacation of 5 adults and 1 child. The apartment was nicely equipped and even had little things like a pizza cutter and ice cream scoop and kids dishes. The pool was small but perfect for a nice swim when you didn’t want to get sandy from the beach. Check in and out was easy and there were extra perks not advertised like BBQ pits in the pool area and cable TV in the living room. We loved our time at SPI and would definitely rent here again. It is well worth it!
Kristy T. Mar 2021
We had a wonderful time at this condo. It was clean and the master bed was so comfortable! We would definitely visit again. Only issue we had was the wifi name and code didn’t match what was in the email, we had to use the info on the back of the modem.
Manager response:
Hello, Kristy! Thank you for your review. We're thrilled to hear that your visit had gone favorably! We apologize for any inconvenience due to the incorrect wifi information and appreciate you bringing this to our attention. Regretfully, the router has been known to revert to its factory settings during a power outage. We offer the routing information on the box as an alternative until our team can reset the information manually. We hope to host you again!
Sedric A. Mar 2021
It was lovely! Perfect place to stay with very close access to beach!
Janet Z. Mar 2021
Just needed some time away
deborah c. Feb 2021
Great location as it is located 1 block from the beach.
John M. Feb 2021
This unit was clean and quiet. Good location for access to beach and restaurants, but away from the busy main drag. Furnishings were all in good condition.
Robina R. Feb 2021
We made a last minute booking to go spend the weekend at the beach, and we came across this place. It was beautiful inside. Everything was organized and clean. Walking distance to the beach. We would definitely stay here again in the future. Thank you for having us.
Olivia H. Nov 2020
Well we had been renting out one of the other units but when it went under contract to see we decided to check into any of the other units & this one came up. The reason we love these units is because we can walk to the beach & there are several restaurants close by that we can also walk to. The unit is very well taken care of with mostly everything you can need.
Evangelina C. Nov 2020
We are a family of 5 and this place was just right. I especially love that the beach is just a 2 minute walk. I could see the beach from the balcony. There were some problems with the condo itself. As soon as we walked into the kitchen, there was a puddle of water on floor. Vacasa rep quickly sent someone to fix a broken faucet. The second drawback was that the pool was closed. And a new couch is DEFINITELY needed. Overall the place is very beautiful and peaceful.
Manager response:
Evangelina, we are so glad you enjoyed your stay with us at The Waves: Starfish Soiree (#8)! We of course had no control over the pool being closed as we are sure in these times you understand. Thank you for the suggestion about the sofa, we will pass this onto the local manager. We look forward to hosting you and your family again. Thank you!
Olivia H. Aug 2020
We loved this condo very much, it is in very good condition & the king size bed was so comfortable. The only reason. I gave it 4 stars is because many of the pots & pans are not in very good condition. If it would be possible to provide newer pots & pans would be very much appreciated since we tend to cook at least 2x a day while staying there. We will most likely rent it out again since we love how close it is to the beach. Thank you
Manager response:
Thank you for your feedback. We will be sure to bring your comments about the pots and pans to the attention of the local staff and the owner. We appreciate your comments and helping us improve for our future guests.
Olivia P. Jul 2020
Upon arrival and walking in, the house was spotless and clean. Very comfortable and had all the amenities in the house my friends and I needed. Super close walk to the beach- around 3 minutes! Only downside is the couch is super worn down and surprised they haven’t gotten a new one to replace. Overall, the beach house was super nice.
Genevieve N. Jun 2020
Loved everything- except the couch which is well-worn and needs replaced. House was clean and the kitchen had every amenity we could ask for. Would stay there again in a heartbeat.
Joeleen S. May 2020
Very close to beach access, clean, roomy place. Kids enjoyed the quiet pool too!
Paul G. Mar 2020
Rental was clean upon arrival, everything was provided, cable, wifi, towels, soap, washer & dryer. I will be returning again!
Linda M. Jan 2020
All was completely as depicted. No surprises. Clean (except the toilet in master bath had not been cleaned, but that was minor and we cleaned it). Air conditioner was getting repaired as we arrived. Wasn’t repaired until next day since a part had to be ordered, but it was okay. We were informed; and it was fixed the next morning. It was no problem. Appreciated the prompt response. Loved having the big deck box with all kinds of things to take to the beach. We used a lot of it. Beach was so close. Nice quiet safe area. Very friendly people in adjoining and nearby units. Great for families and/or couples. Quick reply to any questions we asked by text. This truly became our little home away from home. We were sad to leave. Enjoyed it all. No complaints at all. Only good comments from this family.
Manager response:
Thank you for your valuable feedback. It helps us to improve the unit. We are sorry you were inconvenienced. The manager has discussed Vacasa standards with the housekeeping staff and it is ready for future guests. We hope we can host you again soon!
Christina E. Aug 2019
Our family loved this location and will definitely stay here again!

The condo is a short walk away from the beach. The pool is small but the kids enjoyed it. Overall the condo is just as beautiful as the pictures.
Melinda W. Aug 2017
Modern decor, spacious, updated. East beach access. Pool small but we came for beach. Outdoor area has hose and shower to rinse off sand. Free parking for 2 vehicles.
Robert C. Jul 2017
we stayed here for a few days and the property was spotless and well stocked. We were so comfortable. It is literally steps to the beach and we found boogie boards on the property to use! Beds were sooo comfortable and we had Plenty of spaces.
Rachel L. Jul 2017
We were pleasantly surprised upon entering this spacious beautifully decorated condo. The whole unit looked not only new but high end. The price was very reasonable and our family of five was quite comfortable. We made good use of books, games and even cooked in the crock pot !
Adam A. Jul 2017
My family travels to South Padre every year and this was our first year staying in this condo. It was amazing! we will definitely book for next summer!
Kim T. Jun 2017
Loved the property, beautiful furnishing and updated kitchen. Only a 3 minute walk to the beautiful beach and a plus that the showers are right there to rinse the beach sand off before walking back to the condo.
Virginia P. Jun 2017
Amazing place and great place for family outing
Erick F. Jun 2017

Great location, close to beach, plenty of room for our family of 6, felt like home, I loved the beach toys - our kids especially loved the boogie boards!
Tricia A. Sep 2016
This was a great place to stay with a family. It is furnished with bunkbeds which are very nice with kids. It is a very short walk to the beach so going back and forth is a breeze. Great place and we would definitely stay again.
Travis L. Aug 2016
Loved how close we were to beach access while staying in a new, modern unit. Rooms were very clean, with new new furniture, we will stay here again!
Gaositwe D. Aug 2016
We rented here and we are a family of 4. My kids loved their room and the house was very close to the beach. Just a quick walk, about a block away to the beach.

Mary S. Jul 2016
This property was one of the nicer places we have stayed on the island. The property is just a short walk to the beach and local restaurants, activities and more. We really enjoyed it and would recommend to others.
Amy M. Jun 2016
The condo was as close as you could get without actually being on the beach. We were there with our two young children and it was nice that the guest room had a drawer full of books and games and toys were also available. Very nice property.
Isaac V. Jun 2016
Everything was perfect, the accommodations, the view, the extra added things that we could of borrowed. The access to the Beach was across the street and nearby restaurants was in walking distance. I also loved that I accidently forgot something after my stay and called the local contact person. He immediately got in contact of the cleaning crew and I was able to retrieve my item.
Beatriz G. May 2016
Simply perfect! So nice of them to have water toys for the kids to borrow, beaches chairs, and game boards.
So nice and elegant, very clean!
Ramee M. Oct 2015
Easy beach access - very very clean and modern. Was just like being at home. Will probably stay there again next year. Exceeded our expectations.
