Windsurfing & Kite Sailing: Padre Island is one of the best Windsurfing and Kite boarding destinations in the world, and this house has one of the best and most convenient launches on the Island. It's a 75ft walk from the garage to the walk-in launch (no sea wall). The launch is located on the point of land on the Island that reaches furthest out into the Laguna Madre so the wind shadow is minimized. The garage can store 14 rigged sails on hooks hanging from the ceiling. Watch your friends from the deck ! (If you know the Island, I don't mean to take anything away from 'The Flats', but as far as a launch that is close to your house and rigged gear, this is the best there is.)
Bird Watching: Padre Island is known for great bird watching. Visit the new $6.5 million dollar birding center just north of us. And we have a small wetland just behind our house that has offered an array of egrets, herons, Great Blue Heron, Rosy Spoonbills, Osprey, kingfishers and more.

This is the second time we have stayed in this home. It has everything you need for a weekend for two or your entire family! The layout is perfect if you have kids and still need some privacy. All the comforts of home and the hosts are so organized. All that you need is right there!
The big blue beach house was perhaps the nicest place I have ever stayed on a vacation! It was beautifully decorated, well designed, exceptionally maintained, and super efficient. There were 4 of us staying there, although it sleeps 10, and all of us were impressed. Since we came for kiteboarding and the wind did not blow very much for our stay, no one complained because our accomodations were so wonderful. We watched sunsets from the deck every night, and had coffee on the deck in the morning, and watched movies on the giant TV at night. It was also nice to have things stocked such as spices, condiments, garbage bags, as well as a supply of both beach towels, bath towels, and paddle boards/ kayak for our use in case the wind didn't blow. It was also nice to have a detailed orientation of things to do on the island from a "locals" point of view. The owner was always available by phone for questions or advice, as he really wanted us to enjoy our stay. We will definitely be back!
Our entire family met up and stayed for a week at this large family home. We had a great time. Plenty of room for everyone. It was located on a nice quiet street close to everything. The house had everything we needed plus more. The kids enjoyed using the boards at the beach and we were able to watch the fireworks from the deck. We would definitely recommend this home to anyone who wants to spend time on Padre. The owner Dave was so helpful and great to work with and his "Island Orientation" booklet was wonderful.
The Big Blue Beach house was everything it was advertised to be and more. Definitely the nicest house I have rented to date. It is spacious, clean and well equipped. The owner of the house was the most helpful owner I have ever encountered and provided a wealth of information on how to use the appliances in the home and how to make the most of a visit to South Padre Island. The location is extremely convenient and located on a very quiet street. The deck space on the second floor is wonderful and provided outstanding views of the bay and the sunsets.
We loved this house. It met our needs perfectly. The communication and process that Dave provided was very efficient. Highly recommended. We had 2 adults, 7 teenagers and a dog and it was very comfortable. Great vacation. Thanks Dave.
We brought our family together to renew our vows, this year makes 35 :-) The house was perfect, the weather did not cooperate so we had the ceremony in the dinning/living room and it was perfect! The personal touches and communication from the owners were unbelievable! A must stay for South Padre!!!
This place is AMAZING!! Our large family stayed here very comfortably. The deck was awesome!! The views were breathtaking. We loved watching the fireworks sitting on the deck. Everything was clean and just simply amazing. The location was great and all of the extra things made our trip even better. The owner, Dave, was super helpful and the communication was great. We hope to stay here again on our next trip to the island.
Dave has a beautiful home with all the creature comforts you could possibly want - Situated steps from the bay for kayaking, Windsurfing, Paddle Boarding and amazing sunsets! Home has a huge kitchen with all you need for family meals, 5 bedrooms with 2 Master Suites! Absolutely a great place for a large family to get away together and have ample privacy. We look forward to staying here again next year!
We LOVED the big blue house! It was absolutely perfect for our group of five. We would highly recommend it to anyone.
There aren't enough positive words in the dictionary to describe our experience during our stay at the Big Blue Beach House! We have rented several properties through VRBO/Homeaway, and for the most part have had good experiences, but nothing compares to our experience here. We stayed there for two months in February and March, so we had plenty of time to evaluate our experience. The house is somehow gorgeous and comfortable at the same time. It was spotlessly clean throughout the entire home. The kitchen is not only stocked with anything and everything you'll need, but in addition, it's completely organized with labels of what goes where, so you won't be searching high and low for that spatula or pizza cutter you need! So, obviously the house is amazing (oh, don't get me started on the awesome deck!!), but if that isn't enough in itself, the owner Dave literally goes above and beyond in every possible way. He provides, in writing, every detail you need to know about the house so once you get there, you won't have any problems. However, if you do have any questions, his response is practically immediate. On top of that, he provides you with a "South Padre Island Orientation" package that lists, in detail, restaurants and attractions they recommend on the island. I referred to that list constantly when we were trying to decide where to go! He is sincerely concerned about making sure you have a great time while you're there. A portion of our stay happened to be during Spring Break, which was a new experience for us. Dave knew this, and went out of his way to call us to make sure we weren't having any issues and gave us a few pointers of how to best deal with it (FYI, we had absolutely no problems during that time, and actually enjoyed talking with a lot of the kids). Bottom line is, stop reading this and go request this property NOW, because you will not find anything remotely as nice as this on the island, especially for the price!
