La Solana - 3/2.5 sitting on the Laguna Madre.

This condominuim is 3 story unit that is located on South Padre Island, TX and overlooks the Lower Laguna Madre bay system. South Padre Island is a barrier island situated off the coast of extreme South Texas. Due to the physical geography of the island, SPI offers one of the few places on the entire eastern seashore where you can actually enjoy the sunset OVER WATER. My unit consists of 3 bedrooms, 2 1/2 baths. It was COMPLETELY rebuilt and updated after the devastation of Hurricane Dolly in July 2008. The master suite takes up the entire 3rd floor and overlooks the bay, complete with a wrap around balcony only accessible through that room. All three bedrooms have balconies that either overlook the bay or the pool. The master bedroom has a king bed. The guest bedroom has a queen bed, and the kids’ bedroom has two sets of bunk beds that can sleep four. The sofa in the living room also pulls out to a sleeper. On Friday nights in the summer, the city of SPI hosts fireworks over the bay just outside my back door (starting at around 9:00pm). This complex only has 31 units, and most of them are not in rental pools. I have lots of great neighbors that mingle out on the lawn by the bay in the evening, and typically enjoy a glass of wine while enjoying the sunset. My front door opens up to the the common pool. The private boat slip would be available if you brought your boat. Until recently (the last five years), South Padre Island was the best kept secret in Texas. As more and more people find it, it’s popularity just continues to grow. This is a lazy little town that has one of the nicest beaches on the Texas coast. SPI is a great family destination or romantic getaway. It boasts some of the best inshore and offshore fishing on the Gulf Coast. It is also within close proximity (10-45 miles) to several golf courses.
