The condo was very large and spacious. It was fully equiped with everything you would need for cooking your own meals which helped with the total cost seeing how we didn't have to go out to eat for every meal. It has a great swimming pool for the building and plenty of parking. Almost everyone parked on the second level of the garage so we parked on the bottom level, it was just about deserted and was always able to get a spot real close to the elevator. My favorite part of the condo was the view from the balcony. Being on the 11th floor we had a great veiw of sunrises and the gulf at night, and we were high enough that we didn't hear a lot of noise from the people on the beach. All around was a great place, my wife and I didn't want to leave at the end of our trip.

We highly recommend this place for anyone looking for a spacious, comfortable accommodation that is right on the beach. The beach views off the balcony were spectacular, as were the sunsets viewed from the common area just steps outside the front door. We enjoyed several nights of cooking in the kitchen. The open area living room/dining/kitchen made for a great space to spend the mornings and evenings. The bedrooms and bathrooms were spacious and comfortable as well. You step right onto the beach from the condo, and we thought the northern end of the beach where the condo was situated was perfect.

First let me state, the photographs do not do justice for this very large condo. A group of 6 adults never felt confined or crowded. The beds were confortable, the baths large, the kitchen well appointed. The unit was clean, comfortable and nicely furnished. The doors and windows appear to be new and of good quality, which kept out the wind and humidity, making for very comfortable sleeping.
The only problem we expirenced was the main bath vent fan quit two days into our seven day holiday. We notified the management company, but was still inoperable when we departed.However a can of airfreshner solved this minor inconvenience.
Oh, did I mention the view?? Wow! Front or back.. We could sit on the balcony for hours with a cold one or two, and just watch the ocean!
Be sure to take the short half mile walk south on the beach and stop at the Wanna Wanna beach bar. Shrimp basket, Nachos, and a Padre Punch.. good stuff

The beachfront condo was wonderful. The bedrooms are large and roomy with extra-large baths. The full sized kitchen made it easy to prepare meals and snacks before setting out for day at the beach or sightseeing. Because the condo is located at the beach's edge it took only a few steps to be in the sand and water. The balcony facing the water was cool with ocean breezes and relaxing with sounds of the waves and completely private. Watching the sunrise was relaxing and comfortable. I want to go back as soon as possible.
