Padre Getaways Padre Getaways Guest Testimonials

I came to South Padre for my 30th birthday Celebration! My 4 friends & I had the best time of our life!!! We enjoyed staying in the condos because they were directly on the beach. We also enjoyed how friendly and kind everyone was to us. We enjoyed the Free bus rides. We will definitely return again and again!!

Padre Getaways rents this gorgeous bay front property and were extremely attentive and helpful during our entire stay. The property is immaculate and the 3 story condo is very roomy, nicely decorated and great for all ages. We loved the balconies off each room. The front door leads out to the pool, the back door to the bay with a fishing dock and boat slips. We love La Solana and really enjoyed the great eatery referrals from Elena at Padre Getaways!!

We love to stay condo style - esp. when going to relax at the beach! We had a last minute opportunity [the wife and I] to get away for Labor Day weekend. We decided to check out South Padre Island - it's about a 5 hour drive from home here in San Antonio [we actually made it in 4.5 hrs.!] Pretty easy. We researched many units in a short time and made the decision to come here and we are glad we did. Ocean Vista is nice, neat as a pin, well maintained and great mid-beach location. We made arrangements via Padre Getaways - really nice folks with great info that helped us make a good decision and saved us some time and money. Not everyone in the vacation rental biz are straight shooters but these guys are.

Todo estuvo excelente, el servicio de la agencia que nos lo rento todos muy amables, la vista excelente, el edificio precioso, y todos sus trabajadores muy amables!

We've been Wintering Texas for several years. WE ALWAYS RENT THROUGH PADRE GETAWAYS.COM because we know they are property managers ... Not just rental agents. Their properties (and they manage numerous ones on South Padre) are always well maintained and complete with everything you need to "feel at home" and if anything ever goes wrong/breaks they also 'manage' repairs instantly!

We just returned from South Padre Island and we had a blast! I was traveling with my daughter and 3 children. We booked unit 2202 in the Isla Del Sol complex right on the beach and the team at Padre Getaways made it very easy. They had everything done for us before arriving on Sunday so all we had to do was pick up the keys and the access code to the gated property. After an 8 hour trip the kids were ready to hit the beach that afternoon and they made it possible. The layout of the unit was perfect for our needs and the kids felt comfortable. Our first impression upon entering was great; everything was clean, neat and stocked with all we would need for our vacation. The security on the property was exactly what we had asked for since it was our top priority with 3 small children. It was spring break while we were there and the crew at the complex made sure no one came on the property that was not staying there. We felt very secure.

You will have a great time and feel relaxed and safe. Wally Jones and the staff of Padre Getaways will make you feel welcome and at home. We needed maintenance for a minor issue and they responded promptly and professionally. I recommend coming to Casa Aries and South Padre Island! We will return.

Three years ago we were misled by another rental company and Padre Getaways worked with us to find the perfect rental. The transaction was stress free and a delight. They recommended excellent places to eat on the island and were always available when we needed them. We received our deposit back in full after check out. All the rentals we have seen were spotless and in good locations. We are using Padre Getaways once again this year and every e-mail has been promptly answered and I feel they went out of their way to accommodate us, our boat and help make our summer vacation memorable. I won't book with anyone else on SPI. The owners will go above and beyond to find the right rental.

I am so please we decided to book with Padre Getaways! Everyone in their office was AMAZING! The house was perfect and the mobile app was super helpful. Thank you so much Padre Getaways for making our trip to SPI memorable and comfortable!

Spend awesome family time!!! Would highly recommend to my family & friends!!! Staff are very friendly and helpful... Their communication is so great.. Would definetly stay there again...

I wanted to send you how much I enjoyed my stay at Padre Getaways. Everything was exactly as represented. Padre Getaways was easy to work with and very helpful. Common areas were clean and ample, trash cans were amply available. One of the best fishing docks on the bay. Would definitely rent it again.

 Thank you everyone at Padre Getaways for your wonderful hospitality. From the moment of making my reservation I had the pleasure of speaking to many people...all whom were so sweet and helpful in every way. Thank you all for making our stay so comfortable. We will surely be back to see you next year.


I just wanted to let you know I and my family really enjoyed renting Pueblo Del Padre at 114 E. Swordfish # 4. My daughter set up our week at the beach thru you folks. Spending the 4th of July was a blast ! The location was great for viewing Fireworks, and food shopping was easy due to the nearby grocery store. When we had a drainage problem with the kitchen sink , the maintenance man responded quickly. I am also happy that the rental company let us have a Monday check in and check out. It made are stay enjoyable because we did have to deal with the traffic jam crossing the bridge. This place is great because of the friendliness of the local Texans! If we have another family vacation we are coming back! The Outer Banks in North Carolina has nothing to brag about compared to South Padre Island, TX. Please tell Eleana Jones apt. #4 was furnished comfortable to make any family stay pleasant and the kitchen was a pleasure to cook in. Thanks once again and have a great rental season!

Amazing customer service. Amazing people. Highly recommend them to all my family and friends. 

Casa da Palmas was very beautiful place my family of 6 was very happy the beds where comfortable. The house was very clean, wonderful views and very peaceful neighborhood. The house showers where both large and with beautiful stones. And we had everything we needed from pots and pans and potholders. We loved this house and look forward to coming back again. As for Padre Getaways, I had a great experience with them they were always polite and answered all my questions and I will definately will be renting from them again. 

It's always a joy to receive such friendly, professional, and courteous service from your staff, making our wedding anniversary stay an enjoyable and relaxing one...especially with our 3 beautiful kids! This is the second time we decide to stay locally and use your services, with outstanding results! The condo unit has such a welcoming atmosphere, we really feel it's our home away from home! From enjoying the pool with my wife & kids, to splashing with the waves at the beach, to enjoying the night-time fireworks, getting a nice cup of coffee at Paragraphs Bookstore, along with a doughnut, while I sit back and enjoy some smooth jazz that Michael at the bookstore plays, and wait for my wife and kids to pick out another favorite book, then celebrating our anniversary at Gabriella's Italian Grill & Pizzeria in the evening! Thank you so much for having made our stay absolutely splendid! I appreciate everything that you and your staff do for your guests! God Bless!

Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay at South Padre Island. The condo was very comfortable and conveniently located. Check in and check out was very easy. The support staff were very professional and friendly. The Getaway App provided all the information we needed. 

We had the best time on our much needed vacation on SPI! We stayed at Las Marinas #305 and it was perfect! Beautiful layout and décor. Really felt like somewhere you would want to stay longer. My son wanted to hurry back so he could spend some time in our "awesome" condo! Padre Getaways staff were so nice and professional. Definitely will go straight to them next summer!

We had a great stay at Seashell Isle. Quite homey complex. It was very clean and comfortable with a nice pool area for relaxing. Thank Padre Getaways for accommodating us and our last minute needs ! Yall went above and beyond and were all so nice and helpful. 

The condo and property were above my expectations and the office was so pleasant to deal with. A great location close to the beach and a wonderful vacation! I will definitely do it again. 

We stayed in condo 129. Location, amenities, the pier, and the decor are fantastic. The people at the office are welcoming.

Staff was very friendly and seemed to go the extra mile in making us feel welcome. Case Pampano was cozy, clean and private. The beds were very comfortable which was a plus after a long day at the beach. We enjoyed our stay and will be back!

Stayed at the sea shell condo June 7-11, 2015. The place was exacty as described by the website. Clean, close to the beach, and very relaxing. Would recommend Padre Getaways to anyone. Staff was friendly and efficient. My family and I look forward to our next stay.

We came to Padre Island over the July 4 holiday in honor of my daughter Kennedi's high school graduation. She turned 18 in June and will soon be on her way in the world. She brouht her best friend Bree with her (my daughter is the tall one). I am very thankful for the time that we got to spend together at Padre Island. Padre Getaways did a fantastic job of helping us find the right property. Everything was presented exactly as stated over the phone. I really appreciated all of the additional local information for example the suggestion to rent a golf cart upon our arrival due to the heavily congested traffic during the July 4 holiday...that was a lifesaver! We enjoyed many of the local restaurants but we especially enjoyed our visit to Pier 19 where we had some very good and fresh seafood! There were 6 in our party and we plan to return next summer!

We stayed in Las Marinas #305 for a week in July. The condo was very nice & very clean! Beds were very comfortable! The condo had every thing we need. Very well stocked kitchen. The pool was also very nice. The office staff at Padre Getaways were very friendly & helpful. They were so nice! Highly recommend this rental company!

We loved our townhouse we rented! It had everything we needed. The people at Padre Getaway are so nice, they took care of all our needs immediately. We will definitely be renting from them again.

We had a great time. The condo was sweet. Great view. Equipped with all we needed. The ladies in the office were very welcoming. Definitely will come back.

First time in Padre. We were really impressed with the friendliness of Padre Getaways staff. The condo was very comfortable and in a great location. The beach was beautiful. We made lots of new memories with the family. It was a perfect vacation! ! We will definitely be returning to South padre island and using South Padre Getaways for our lodging needs!

We came down for weekend with 2 kiddos, in laws and bro/sis in law...LOVED the access to the beach. Condo is in great condition. Ideal. Blew everyone away. Everyone agreed we need to come back for a LONGER period of time in the future...really is super convenient for families.
