About South Padre Trips

South Padre Trips is a full-service vacation rental management company. We rent condos & homes on South Padre Island while managing these properties for their Owners. 

We are located on the Island at 3800 Padre Blvd. It is easy to find us, our office is mid-island, sort of catty-corner from Whataburger on the east side of padre blvd. Our “Marquee” sign out on the main drag.

We are easy to contact. Call us locally 956.242.0904 or email us info@southpadretrips.com or stop by our physical office. 

We understand that having a “road trip” or Padre getaway vacation shouldn’t cost an arm & a leg, and we focus on providing affordable beach homes & condos for families.

Hi, I’m Chad!

I was born & raised in Northern Wisconsin, having been here in South Texas now for nearly 20 years. I hold an MBA from the University of Wisconsin and currently serve on the Board of Directors for the South Padre Island Chamber of Commerce, as well as South Padre Island Convention & Visitors Bureau Board of Directors.

If you own property here, I want you to pick us because I will personally make sure you make more money (with less work) on your investment property than you will anywhere else. I have 23 years of specific experience selling travel to South Padre & I have personally brought more people here than any person currently alive. If you are looking to book a vacation rental, I want you to pick us because I think we keep our rentals cleaner than anyone else, we provide affordability, we are local experts,  & I will treat you like my own family like you ought to be treated.

I have two young Sons that were born & are raised here as Texans, Miller (aged 10), and Quinn (aged 8) that are my entire world. We enjoy any/all watersports, travel, queso, BBQ, massive breakfasts, shooting guns, ridin’ dirt bike, the Astros, Flag Football (they play I coach) & we just love everything about Texas & this Island! The boys work with me every summer to learn work ethic & to respect the value of money.

We are very grateful for your consideration of using our family business and Thank You for making our American Dream a reality!

Chad Hart

We’d love to hear from you!
