Winter Texans

South Padre Island is a well known haven for our retired folks from October thru mid March due to its outstanding low cost accommodations available on a monthly basis. One great benefit of monthly rentals is not only the discounted price during this low season, Winter Texans pay do not pay 14.5% occupancy tax for any stay over 30 days in length – a real savings!

If you book more than 1 month, we discount even further. The lowest cost months to book a long term rental on South Padre Island are October & November, followed by December, then January, and finally February. March generally is not discounted due to family spring break rentals increasing the rate. The South Padre Winter Vacation Rentals over 30 days are generally 35 to 50% cheaper than peak season rates
