How to select the perfect vacation rental in South Padre Island

When you think of South Padre Island, you probably think of Spring Break, but that only happens for a small portion of the year. Surrounded by water, with the Gulf of Mexico to the east and the Laguna Madre Bay to the west, the island also features great beaches, watersports, and plenty of events, such as the South Padre Island Kite Fest in February and the Spring Break Jam auto and tattoo show in early March, to keep you entertained any time of the year.

Follow these tips to make sure you select the perfect South Padre Island vacation rental for your travel plans.

  1. Where to stay for South Padre Island Kite Fest.The annual gathering of kite enthusiasts begins with an indoor kite show then moves outdoors for two days of displays of magnificent show kites every February. The fest takes place just north of the convention center, so choose a vacation rental in the central part of the island, near the convention center or Andy Bowie County Park. You might even be able to catch a glimpse of the kites from your rooftop patio.
  2. Where to stay for the Spring Break Jam.No, it's not what you're thinking -- thousands of college kids playing too-loud music and acting crazy on the beach. This is an auto show featuring anything on wheels -- cars, trucks and motorcycles, to be specific. Plus, it has a tattoo festival component where some of the best tattoo artists in Texas will be on hand if you're looking for some new ink. The event takes place at the South Padre Island Convention Center, so stay nearby on Padre Boulevard to be close to the action.
  3. Where to stay for the best beaches.There are more than two dozen access points to the beaches of South Padre Island. Since most of the island is less than half a mile wide, any vacation home you choose will be within walking distance of a beach. If you want to be right on the sand, choose a vacation rental on Gulf Boulevard for access to the most popular beaches on the island.
  4. Where to stay for a sporting adventure on the water.Island life is all about the water, and South Padre Island has many ways for you to experience it. You can rent boats or personal watercraft, or go fishing, whether it be from the shore or on a deep-sea cruise. You can also take a boat ride to look for dolphins in the sea. There are so many places to rent watercraft, including Parrot Eyes, South Padre Island WaterSports, and Southern Wave Sailing Charters, or otherwise enjoy the water that you can choose a vacation home anywhere on the island and still have easy access.
  5. How to choose your own South Padre Island vacation rental experience.A South Padre Island vacation can be as tranquil or as wild as you want it to be. Choose a cozy vacation rental cottage on a cul-de-sac for a quiet, relaxing beach experience, or a condo on the Gulf side of the island if you want more action. Either way, your South Padre Island stay is sure to provide you with lasting memories.

South Padre 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 South Padre 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.

Yes. Many TurnKey homes allow for special rates for extended stays, monthly stays or long-term stays. All our booking calendars are accurate and up-to-date, and will automatically reflect these discounted rates when you enter your desired check-in and checkout dates.

Yes! TurnKey has established the best network of professional house cleaners in South Padre to ensure that our guests always arrive at an exceptionally clean home. Expect to find beds made with hotel-grade linens and bathrooms stocked with fresh towels and a complimentary starter set of toiletries.

Unlike many vacation rentals in the area, our local team and network of South Padre house cleaners guarantee that you’ll never need to clean up at the end of your stay. Sometimes, especially during busy seasons, starting a load of towels or linens can help our house cleaners finish their clean more quickly. We certainly appreciate it when guests do this, but we do not require it.

TurnKey offers 24/7 guest support that you can contact at any time to make your stay more enjoyable. Paired with our local South Padre team, we can respond quickly to any in-home help you might need.

All of TurnKey’s South Padre vacation rentals are equipped with complimentary, reliable, high-speed WiFi so you can always stay connected.

Every TurnKey South Padre vacation rental includes a fully-equipped kitchen where you can cook and prepare meals with your friends and family.

We’ve installed our proprietary digital locks on all South Padre vacation rentals to offer our guests secure, keyless entry. Each code is time-sensitive, so you don’t have to worry about anyone else having access to the home while you’re there. Prior to check-in, you’ll receive arrival instructions with your custom code for easy, seamless access.

TurnKey carefully vets all of our homes, so you can be sure you’ll always stay in a premium vacation rental. We offer some of the most distinctive, unique vacation homes in all of South Padre, backed by our exceptional home care and 24/7 guest service.
