One great thing about booking direct rather than booking an Airbnb on South Padre is you can avoid any hidden fees

South Padre Airbnbs

Are you wondering what some common tacked on or hidden fees you can see by Airbnb hosts after you make your booking:

1.) In March for college spring break South Padre Island and during easter Semana Santa, there are Security Wristband Fees

2.) Surprise “after check out” cleaning fees if you as a guest don’t do the required “chore list” the host requires

3.) Occupancy tax of 6% is charged up front by Airbnb, then you realize after you book in the fine print another 11% occupancy tax is due for the City/County portion they charge you after you book (yes they can do this!)

*Extra damage deposits or security deposits not disclosed

*Per person additional charges if you go over some super guest count

*Extra charges to check in on a Friday

*Exorbitant pet fees despite listing saying it is “pet friendly.”

*Super common – Processing, Management, Linen, or resort fees. This all adds up

*Weirdo check in times like after 4 pm or check out by 10 am (we are 3 pm check in and 11 am check out)

*A fee to park you vehicle

With thousands of South Padre Island Airbnb condos, it’s hard to pick. Rather than listing the properties we have on Airbnb, simply go to:
