Louis and Linda Rogers’ Condo on the Laguna Madre


Two bedroom, two bath Condo on north Padre Island. Not a high rise. Our condo is a corner penthouse of a two story building with one adjacent neighbor. View the Laguna Madre, back of Snoopy’s, Kennedy Causeway and the Packery Channel from the living room and decks. Keep your boat in the water at the dock out back (within 20 feet) or just enjoy the coastal environment and drive or ride a bike to the Gulf of Mexico beach (3 miles). Central parking area to store your boat trailer on site. Good fishing under the lights along the bulkhead during the hot/cold periods. Handy fish cleaning station at the waters edge. Large pool shared by the residents of Puente Vista. Clean and well maintained Washers and Dryers (coin) in the central recreation/party area (which can be reserved for your special party or get together). Organized activities for winter Texans.
3_stitch3condo%20liv%20din%20deck_stitchRelax in 1 of the 4 leather recliners (2 sofa/ 2 loveseat) and watch the game on new 48″ plazma HDTV (flat screen) or just enjoy the expansive view of the Laguna Madre in the living room. Wireless internet (WIFI) access.  Wood laminate flooring in the living and dining area’s, saltillo tile in the kitchen and 2010 carpet in the bedrooms. In 2009 we increased the size of the opening between the kitchen and living/dining areas to make that more pleasant to communicate through, replaced the kitchen cabinetry, counter tops, sink, dishwasher and disposal. We also upgraded all of the cooking utensils and plates (includes baking), and put in a new vanity in both bedrooms.  The main deck off of the living room and sliding glass door was also updated. The dining table seats four in chairs or more using the bench seat. Big King-size bed and CATV in the master bedroom which looks out to the bay.  Full-sized bed plus bunk bed (full matress bottom/single matress top) in the front bedroom.  Both bedrooms have walkout deck areas with sliding glass door access. Bed linens and bath towels included.  HVAC replaced in ’11.
Drive to the beach at Padre Balli Parkfish3 and Bob Hall Fishing Pier (see also Mustang Island State Park) in 5 minutes south via South Padre Island Dr (SPID) or Corpus Christi in 10 minutes (very convenient location) north via SPID. Port Aransas is a 30 minute drive north through the island via 361. The Padre Island National Seashore is a 20 minute drive south via P22 on Padre Island. Golf club/Padre Isles Country Clubis within a couple miles.  Wind surfing is a very popular sport in the Laguna Madre area (Worldwinds WindSurfing), especially during the windy months of spring.  Also see the Corpus Christi Windsurfing club.  Let’s not forget the surfing opportunities too, as seen in these pictures taken from Bob Hall PierBird watching is also a popular way to spend time in the Laguna Madre area.

If you are a fisherman or duck hunter and are used to having to putt through the channels this isn’t like that.  You access run-able water in a minute from the time you crank up in the morning or you can simply paddle your kayak from the boat dock behind the condo.  Bait is available under the Causeway at several locations, my old favorite is Clem’s.
