How to pick the perfect vacation rental on North Padre Island

North Padre Island is a barrier island along the South Texas Coast that’s small enough to explore in its entirety in just a few days, but rich in an assortment of activities to pass the time. Visitors from near and far travel to North Padre Island to visit its miles of beaches, hunt for seashells along its shore, marvel at South Texas’ wide variety of birds, like the endangered brown pelican, and fish along the Gulf of Mexico.

Follow these tips to help you pick the perfect North Padre Island vacation rental for your travel plans.

  1. Where to stay to enjoy the beach.There are numerous beaches on North Padre Island that are perfect for playing in the sand and swimming in the Gulf of Mexico. Padre Balli Park, located off Beach Access Road 5 and at the end of the Bob Pier Hall, is a favorite for both locals and visitors because it offers on-site lifeguards and freshwater showers. For a more outdoorsy visit, check out the 65 miles of undeveloped beach at the Padre Island National Seashore. Additionally, families should check out Packery Channel Park, located on Beach Access Road 3A.
  2. Where to stay for the best beachcombing.There’s no better feeling of accomplishment than returning to your rental after walking for hours down the beach with a prized conch shell, sundial, or sand dollar. While any beach on the island may yield good results, the Packery Channel Beaches—located close to the John F Kennedy Memorial Causeway—is known for beachcombing. For the best results, hunt for shells after a major storm along its tide line between the jetty and the seawall.
  3. Where to stay to go birding.Not only is South Texas is one of the United States’ best birding regions, North Padre Island boasts dozens of species to watch in their natural habitat, including seagulls, mockingbirds, doves, red-tail hawk, and osprey. For the best birding, stay near the Molli Beattie Coastal Habitat near the Packery Channel or the Whitecap Beach near Access 4.
  4. Where to stay to go fishing.North Padre Island offers almost every kind of fishing a visitor can imagine; wade fishing, jetty fishing, pier fishing, offshore fishing, and surf fishing. For wade fishing, stay near Laguna Madre and its miles of shallow, grassy flats that are home to Redfish and Speckled Trout. Stay near the Packery Channel Jetties for the best jetties and offshore fishing and the Bob Hall Pier for pier fishing. Venture into the Padre Island National Seashore to fish along the beach.
  5. How to choose your own North Padre Island rental experience.North Padre Island offers something to both visitors looking for a quiet getaway and those looking for a vacation a little more exciting. Stay further north, near the causeway, to be in a more bustling environment that’s also a quick trip to Corpus Christi. Go south, toward the Padre Island National Seashore if you’re looking for a more secluded atmosphere.

North Padre Island Vacation Rentals Frequently Asked Questions

Companies like Airbnb and Vrbo operate listing websites that enable guests to research and book a vacation rental anywhere in the world. However, once a guest books the property, they need to work directly with either the homeowner, host or property manager any time they have questions or need assistance with booking or during their stay. This can be a challenge for some homeowners, particularly those who live far away from their vacation rental. TurnKey offers a consistent and reliable high-end experience, resulting in strong reviews, repeat bookings and more. TurnKey also has a local North Padre Island team, 24/7 support and in-home technology to ensure an amazing vacation experience in every home, every stay, every time.

In response to the COVID-19 outbreak, TurnKey has enhanced its already extensive home cleaning standards and processes to further sanitize homes between each stay for our guests and owners. All TurnKey properties are equipped with our patented GuestWorks® cleaning system and verification technology, requiring professional housekeepers to follow a stringent set of cleaning standards, customized for each home, and confirm their use of COVID-19 fighting products, as identified by the Center for Biocide Chemistries. We have also emphasized effective hygiene practices and safety recommendations for our employees and housekeeping network in line with CDC guidelines. In addition, we have initiated the TurnKey Cares Relief Housing Program, offering thousands of homes for medical personnel and first-responders at complimentary or significantly discounted rates while they perform critical services to fight COVID-19.
