Property Details

North Padre Waterfront On The Island. This Canal Home is just 1 mile to amazing beaches, Bob Hall Pier & the Packery Channel. One minute you are watching your favorite show on the big screen and within 10 seconds you are fishing big time on the deck!

Are your ready? It’s island time! So come on in and relax to a slower beat. When you first walk into our home, slow yourself down on the way to the deck and take in the great living space and modern kitchen. Take a minute to go on up to the second story master with a water view balcony over looking the deck.
Okay, now you can move on, to the paradise deck on the water. Here you will enjoy the great views that go all the way to Schlitterbahn Water Park just one mile away. But you’ll find it hard to leave your deck while you enjoying your Hot Tub. Or grab a fishing pole and fish for the biggest fish of the season to win a free night at our home. Maybe you would prefer to just lay back and take in the atmosphere listening to your favorite music with the blue tooth outdoor stereo. Catch that big fish and through it on the huge grill. You can even grab the blender and whip up your best frozen concoction. Then, if you get a chill just jump into the hot tub to finish that frozen drink.
Before you know it you’ll be throwing on the steaks and pulling in the fish and dancing to the music and ooops, forgot about the ocean?—it’s just one mile away--- lets hit the beach ya’ll!!!
Later after an exciting time at the FREE Padre Balli Beach Park next to Bob Hall Pier & Restaurant you can return home to the outdoor shower to wash off the sand and plan your next move. Just slow your roll, YOU’RE ON ISLAND TIME NOW!

This is the best place to stay on the island. It has fishing, easy access to the bay and ocean and a dock to tie up and be ready to go at moment’s notice. The view from the back deck is fantastic as well as a great place to sit and enjoy a drink. It is truly Paradise.

Our family had a great time at this quaint beach house. It had everything we needed and was conveniently located close to the beach. The host was accessible and very accommodating. We can’t wait to go back!

Had such an incredible stay at this beautiful condo. Mark was very quick with responses, helpful for all of our requests, and such a friendly guy to meet! He went above and beyond to make sure we had the best beach vacation. 10/10 recommend!

I don’t want to tell anybody about how fantastic the location is right on the canal. Nor do I want to let anybody know how great the fishing is. And definitely don’t want anybody to know how wonderful the host is. I want to keep this hidden gem to myself because this place is fantastic if you need a beautiful place that is perfect for fishing right off of the dock, docking your boat and going directly to the best inshore fishing, or just sitting on one of the decks and enjoying island time. Whether you’re in the hot tub or just having a glass of wine and enjoying the view, it’s all perfect. Plenty of parking in the long wide driveway, plenty of room in the house with four bedrooms and pullout couches, and conveniently close to all things Padre Island. This is the perfect place but please don’t let anybody know the secret.

Excellent, spacious home for our family to enjoy! The deck was our absolute favorite part and where we spent a majority of our trip just swimming in the canal or in the hot or fishing. The kitchen was stocked well for us to cook our meals, the beds were extremely comfortable and it was very clean. Nice, quiet neighborhood and very close commute to the beach or any stores/restaurants. Mark is very communicative and easy to get ahold of for any questions that might arise. We had a wonderful time, thanks again Mark!

Really nice place to stay for a nice family reunion trip. The fishing is amazing out back on the deck. We were able to catch a lot of fish every night. We loved how close we were to the beach as well.

We expected to rent a beach house and go to the beach for the weekend, but the house was so comfortable, with so many amenities, we never left! 5 star vacation

The house was great. The best part was the hot tub!!! The deck had amazing sunsets and a great place to relax and listen to some music. Mark was very responsive and helpful during our stay and before. You can fish off the deck and it’s close to Whitecap beach. Wonderful family trip.

We had a wonderful stay at Mark's place! The hot tub was so nice for hanging around the house and the incredible deck. We did some fishing and had a few catches. The house is well stocked, we had everything we needed for a great weekend at the beach. Would definitely stay again!

"This place has everything"

by Carpenter, Matt


This place has everything you’re looking for, for a place at the beach. Hot Tub and fishing off the dock, what more could you ask for. Pet friendly, was perfect for our chocolate lab puppy Beesly. Everything was enclosed and locked which made us feel safe with a dog there. We will be back!

"Awesome place for a family vacation"

by Charles


Awesome place for a family vacation, fishing from the deck, relaxing in the hot tub, the shaded deck keeps the sun off. Super clean and well maintained, and owners instantly responsive to any questions. Beautiful landscaping. 1 to 5 minutes from multiple beaches. My kids want to live there now!

"The property is awesome"

by Cory


The property is awesome and Mark met us at the house to ensure we were all dialed in for our stay. The house was very nice, super clean and well equipped for any length of stay. The highlight is the whole outdoor deck/porch area where we spent most of our time. Not only did I have my boat at the dock right below the deck, but we had an outdoor fridge, BBQ, Stereo, Hot Tub, Pool and Ice Maker at our leisure! Mark made sure that we were taken care of and the way they care for their property is second to none. All linens, rooms, areas were very clean and everything in the house we used worked! We will definitely come back for a long-term stay. Thanks Mark!

Response from Mark:
You are so welcome and thank you for your kind works. Great guest and would be perfect for any host.

"Great times with great friends at a great place"

by Gullikson, David


There were 4 couples and there was plenty of room for all of us. We did spend most of the time enjoying the amazing deck. Grilling, fishing, hanging out in hot tub, there was definitely plenty to do. Caught a few crabs with the crab trap but didn't have much luck this time fishing off the deck. Mark made us feel very welcome and we will try to stay here again when we can make it back down.

"We had an amazing time."

by Paul


We had an amazing time. Mark and his wife were so nice and accommodating. We were less than a mile from the beach but spent most of our time at their fabulous home. Hot tub fishing and swimming in the canal all from the back porch! A paradise of a vacation. Highly recommend for families or big groups.

"New ReviThis property is an amazing locationew"

by Nikki


This property is in an amazing location. Directly on the water and just a few minutes from some pretty amazing beaches. Mark was a great host and has a gem in this coastal property. He went above and beyond with his hospitality by meeting us at the house and walking us through how to operate everything on that fantastic deck. The home was extremely well stocked with towels and basic toiletries, a concept that most homeowners forget when they list their properties. The bedrooms were great, comfy beds and linens. Plenty of space to stretch out. Cable and internet were a great addition, we watched a few movies and was able to get some work done. The fishing off the back deck was awesome, caught Black Drum, Crabs and Red Fish like crazy. The fire pit gives a great ambiance for those not interested in fishing and the music in the outdoor grill is the perfect touch. The hot tub was great and got some use as well. We will certainly be visiting Mark again in the future, we had an amazing time!

Response from Mark:
Wow! Thanks so much Nikki. You folks were great. Please come back soon.

"Spectacular vacation enjoyed by all!"

by Crispells


The owner was present upon arrival for a personal tour of the home. He was very kind and accommodating. The property is a luxury home as pictured. It is well kept and very clean. We enjoyed every aspect of the spacious rental. The home is large and open enough for family gatherings, yet offers plenty of privacy from the neighbors. The location on the canal was perfect for fishing from the wonderful deck. There is a corner store close by and the expansive Padre island beach is a must see. There is a water park, aquarium and naval ship tour also in the area. The bi-level deck was everyone's favorite. Something was available for everyone, from the grill, deck, sound system, to the hot tub where we enjoyed wonderful sunsets. Table, chairs and towels were also plentiful. The home also has a washer and dryer. We plan on staying again next year!

"New Review"

by Andy


First of all, super friendly host. Nice house in perfect location with awesome outside porch - you gonna love it. It is not so far to the beach or you can enjoy in the hot tub. It is perfect for 2 families with 5 kids. Definitely follow mark´s recommendations what´s around. Try the German bakery that's also not far away.
