We are often asked what guests should bring with them when vacationing in one of our rental properties on South Padre. Each guest has different needs but, we can make some suggestions of do’s and don’ts for your vacation.

Do bring sunscreen and protective clothing for the beach. Our ultraviolet rays are intense and days spent near the water mean even more exposure. There is no faster way to ruin a holiday then a painful burn. Please remember to protect yourself.

 For maximum enjoyment, we provide  a cooler for your beverages or snacks, beach blankets or towels, umbrellas and chairs and plenty of beach toys and games.

Do bring entertainment in case of rainy days. We don’t see much rain in South Texas but, your vacation might have a rainy day in it. Do bring a board game or book and spend any rainy days relaxing with your family. If you have a laptop, Ipad, or tablet you can find High-Speed internet service, or watch movies or use the Apple TV in the Condo.

Do bring groceries and seasonings. We make sure to throw away any consumable goods between visitors. You will need to bring basics like oil, coffee, butter and seasonings in addition to your meals. If you prefer to shop locally, the there is a super Wal-Mart, and HEB in Port Isabel.

Our properties will have a roll of paper towels, a roll of toilet paper in each bathroom and a trash bags to get you started. However, if you are staying for several days you may need additional supplies.

Don’t bring basic linens. All South Padre Escape properties come complete with bed linens and pillows. We also make sure there are plenty of towels for you to use in the property. If you require additional towels for pool or beach use then you will want to bring your own.

Don’t bring cleaning supplies. Each of our properties will be supplied with dish soap and basic cleaning equipment. Guests are asked to remove trash and run the dishwasher. The rest of the cleaning will be done by South Padre Escape housekeeping staff. If you are staying for a longer period of time, you may wish to bring some laundry soap or additional supplies.

Don’t bring cooking equipment. All South Padre Escape rental properties are outfitted with all the basic cooking equipment including plates, glasses, silverware, pots and pans, spatulas, etc. You will also find a microwave, coffee maker, and toaster in each unit. We expect that the needs of most guests are met. However, if you have specific culinary equipment beyond the basics, you may wish to bring it.
