This hideaway on Texas' North Padre Island is well worth the search. Cradled between the Gulf of Mexico and Laguna Madre, this three story red tiled roof inn is quite simply incredible. Our B/B is at the intersection of 5 canals with the main canal leading to the Laguna Madre. The Gulf of Mexico and it's white sand beaches are also five minutes away. We were voted one of the top 15 Bed and Breakfast's in the United States for "Sunset Views". We are a complex of eighteen condominiums converted into a unique Bed and Breakfast Inn. Swim in the pool, play golf at Padre Isles Country Club, fish off the deck, go birding at the National Seashore (15minutes away), go sail boarding at Bird Island, go to the beach or just simply sit on the deck and read--it's your choice. You might think you are in the Caribbean.

Fortuna Bay B&B is just the best. We've gone at least once a year for the last 19 years and its just like going home to us. The views from the deck are like something from the Caribbean. the room is always clean and we always have the best time there. My husband fishes from their deck and loves it. If I can't go to the Bob Hall Pier (less than 1/2 mile away) he's happy as a clam. He's gotten skip Jack, several trout, red fish, black drum lots of perch for bait and a little bit of everything including the odd stone crab and scary looking dogfish.Its not too far for shopping, lots of close restaurants Can't wait to go back. Just be sure and wear your sun screen!!!

My husband treated me to a birthday fishing weekend and I was so impressed with the property that we will be back in the Spring for sure! Beautiful sunset. Our fishing guide picked us up right in front at the dock that was located just outside our room. We went in October to enjoy the cooler weather and more privacy. The fishing was good too!

My husband and I celebrated our first anniversary at Fortuna Bay B & B and had a wonderful time. Our room had a private balcony in which we loved to sit and enjoy the view. It was absolutely spectacular. This is a very laid back place and we really appreciated the privacy we had while we were here. We really loved the area and will definitely be back. Thanks again to John and Jackie for an awesome stay.

My husband and I came here for a 'romantic getaway'. It was probably the most pleasant place I've ever stayed while on vaccation. Not to mention the absolutely GORGOUS sunset over the water! Excellent service! I will be coming back!!

My husband and I stayed here two years in a row for our Anniversary. The inn keepers are wonderful and the rooms are very nice. This B&B is completely worth the money. The only problem we encountered was a miscommunication on what room we were to stay in the second year we lodged there. But everything was settled very professionally.
