Reviewed 30 April 2014

Stayed during a long weekend in April with a large HS band group (200+). The condos are fully furnished and all you have to bring is the food for meals. It is a "U" shaped property with the pool located inside the "U". The beach is literally right outside the patio doors thus the location is what you're paying for. Some of the rooms have some a little wear being so close to the salt spray environment but not a deal breaker. Maintenance and housekeeping staff are always present to fix and clean. The office personnel are friendly and helpful. I would recommend this property to individuals, families and groups.

We have spent the last 4 Feb's here and have no hesitation in recommending it. It has just about everything ( a large and warm pool, daily parties, very friendly people, clean facilities, etc.) The staff are friendly, experienced and quickly respond to any request. Plus their coffee in the morning is free and excellent! So, if you are looking for a day, week or monthly adventure on the Gulf of Mexico step out of your door. You can comb the shore for ocean shells, enjoy delicious sea food overlooking the bay in nearby restaurants, fish, golf or do nothing (my favorite) as the spirit moves you. We love it here. You will too. Tom & Mary Eggleston

Have stayed here for several years for 2 months each year. The property has declined to the point I will not be back next year. One of the two elevators were broken for most of our stay and the other was suspect to the point few people would use it.Most rooms have not been upgraded and there is no way to assure getting a comfortable bed in both bedrooms. Some rooms have upgraded appliances and tv's, some not. Ours did not. On site management is unprofessional and lacking in abilities. It appears they are having problems with covering costs and are allowing the property to become rundown to the point it will be condemed.

Hello Jack P,

Thank you so much for taking the time to let us know about your stay. I would like to apologize about the issue you encountered with our elevators. Unfortunately, no matter where people stay, sometimes elevators stop working. We are thankful that our elevator company is very responsive and usually comes out within the hour when this type of thing happens.

I know that you spoke with our front desk manager during your stay regarding your concerns with the comfort of the bed. It was noted on your account that she offered to move you to another room but that you declined to do so. I wanted you to know that since your last visit, that particular unit as well as many others have been updated and renovated.

Also, we are very fortunate to be in business for almost 50 years and we do not have any issues covering costs especially to the point that you are expressing on this review. We are actually very proud of this establishment and the fact that we get very positive feedback on a daily basis. We are also very proud of the fact that many of our guests call Island House their "home away from home".

Thank you again,

Cynthia

PLUS: The interiors are BEAUTIFUL, it's right on the beach, nice pool, awesome views no matter what unit you get, very friendly staff, superior value. We have stayed here 7 times & we will continue to visit each & every summer. FANTASTIC for families with children or teens. Outside grills are a plus but it's first come first serve, so get there early. Ground are kept spotless, never any trash, dead plants, etc. BABY SEA TURTLE hatchlings can be viewed weekly at the Padre Island National Seashore about 15 minutes away. You can get the hatchling hotline by going to their website to get up to the minute "hatchling release" information...HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

TIPS: We have never found the sheets to be soft & comfortable so we always bring our own. Master bedroom are king size. Also, if there is any loud music or guests late at night, there is no one at the office to take your call, you have to call the police. This only happened to us once & it was handled well by local authorities. We have stayed here many times & this was an isolated incident. But it's good to know now the office is closed at night.

Room Tip: Bring your own sheets, ours are never comfy The view is fantastic no matter which unit you get

Travelling from Europe we didn't realize Texas was as stunning like this. We had a condo on the third floor vieuw on the beach/ocean. Condo was very comfortable and no complains about service. I would definitly recommend this place.

There was construction / renovation going on but this did not disturb us
