Spring Break can be lots of fun but with so many people rules have to be set and followed.  Here some important "Keep It Fun" items.

  • Occupancy Limit - Only the persons named on your list when you checked-in are allowed to stay in the vacation home.

  • Wristbands - A member of our staff will place a wristband on you when you check-in. It must be worn at all times while on the grounds. Security guards will not let you on the grounds without it. To replace a lost wristband will cost you $100. 

  • Noise Levels - every condo complex has a "Quiet Curfew."  

Too Many People and Too Much Noise are the 2 biggest reasons groups get evicted.

  • Accidental Damage - You will be asked to leave a cash deposit of between $400 and $600 dollars at check-in as a deposit against potential damages. 

  • NO Pets - Not even your goldfish! As wonderful as pets can be they need to stay home. Fines apply for having pets.

  • NO Smoking - All vacation homes are smoke free.  Fines apply for smoking in homes.

We want to give your deposit back to you. Please leave the vacation home in the same condition as you found it.  It is best to report damage, because we will find it.

  • Parking Permits - You will receive 1 to 2 parking permits. Any other vehicles in your group will need to park outside of designated parking areas. 

  • Check-In Time - Check-in is 4p the day of your arrival. BUT we sometimes have issues and may not be able to get you in for another hour or two. Go have fun on the beach! We will call you when it is ready. There are no refunds for late check-ins. 

  • Check-in Location - 3100 Padre Blvd, South Padre Island, TX 78597

  • Late Check-ins - If you are not there at 4p, don't worry. Our Welcome Center is open 24/7.

  • Early Check-in - We can sometimes get you in early. Call us and ask, or we will try to call you and let you know.

  • Check-Out Time - 11am - 11:00 am - 11 AM - 11:00 AM - One hour before noon. Any Questions?

  • Late Check-Out - During busy seasons we cannot offer late check-outs. 

  • Returning Keys - You will be issued keys at check-in and they must be back in our office by 11am the day of departure.


Cancelling A Reservation

  • Cancellation - Once full payment has been received a Spring Break reservation CANNOT be canceled.

  • Trip Insurance - For that reason we recommend the purchase of trip insurance through Red Sky Insurance, available at the time you complete your reservation. For more information Go Here.


So what will I find in my vacation home?

You will be staying in an individually owned vacation property. Furnishings and decorations vary from property to property.

  • Beds will be made with sheets and pillows. If the property you are renting is equipped with a sofa-sleeper and you plan on using it, please let us know ahead of time so we can have it made up for you.

  • Bathrooms are supplied with towels and are ready for your arrival. You will also find a small wrapped bar of hand soap and a wrapped roll of toilet tissue. For information on beach and pool towels see "Items You Might Like to Bring" below.

  • Kitchens are equipped for most standard cooking needs. For cleaning up after meals you will find a 3 oz. bottle of dish washing liquid (refillable at are our central linen exchange), 2 automatic dishwasher tablets (if the property has a dishwasher), a wrapped cello dish sponge or dish rag, plus 1 or 2 tea towels. Other important items you will find in the kitchen include 1 roll of paper towels, coffee filters and 2 plastic trash bags.

  • We hope you don't need them but you will also find a broom and dustpan, and a sponge mop or equivalent. Some properties also have vacuum cleaners.

  • Padre Island Rentals has a free towel exchange located on the east side (beach side) or our building. Bed linens can also be exchanged for a small fee. Exchange hours are between 11 am and 3 pm daily.
