Two new leather sofas in the living room convert to queen size hide-a-way beds. All linens and pillows are furnished. The Lazy-Boy recliner is comfortable for watching the 32 inch flat screen TV which is on cable and includes both HBO and Cinemax. On the balcony you can have your first morning cup of coffee while you watch the sun come up over the Gulf of Mexico! Chairs and a table are furnished. You can watch your children down on the beach or go down and play sand volley ball. Swim in the large pool or relax in the hot tub after a game of tennis. Unit # 204 has its own heat/air conditioner with your own thermostat. We have two elevators. If you need to do laundry the laundromat is just across the walkway.

Our kitchen is fully equipped with late model appliances, a Mr. Coffee, toaster oven and toaster, and a blender. Plenty of dishes, flatware, and cookware. All you need to bring is some groceries!

All linens are furnished except beach towels. They seem to disappear!

I was born and raised on a ranch in the South Plains area of West Texas. I made my first trip to South Padre Island in 1952. We came across in a fishing boat - no bridge. The first bridge was built about 1954. My family came to South Padre Island several times a year and my children feel blessed to have had those times! Now they bring their grand children to Meme's Island.

Jo Ann Price purchased this condo in 1996

I love the beach and I wanted a condo right on the beach. I love South Padre Island and I wanted to share a condo which would be a home away from home when you come to the Island!

Many things to do! You can go on a dolphin watch, go fishing in the bay or go deep sea fishing. Drive up into the dunes and find wonderful shells. See the giant turtles and the tiny ones at the Turtle House. Ride the free trolley up and down the Island sight seeing. Go to Port Isabel to the museum. Shop all the shell and t-shirt shops. Eat in our wonderful restaurants...Just sit on the balcony and watch people. Drink your coffee at my patio table while you watch the sun rise over the Gulf of Mexico....

GREAT CONDO BUT QUESTIONABLE AREA.

  • 4 of 5
First let me say that the condo is a 5 star, modest but very clean and modern, 0 complaints! I gave my stay an overall 4 to help you navigate through some potentials pitfalls.

Upon arrival we were greeted by another party hanging out in the parking lot at the front entrance with their music and bass at levels that were vibrating us inside of our vehicle, (no exaggeration). Apparently this did not garner the attention they missed as youths so they began demonstrating the 'poddy dance' in between the parked vehicles to maximize their starved efforts for attention. Or at least I assume they were doing the poddy dance since they were bobbing, weaving and holding their groins?

This coupled with an entrance to the facility that is dated and not well lit provided for plenty of initial concerns about our stay. Upon entering the front office I was greeted by a younger heavy set gal that let me know the party before us paid for a late checkout and we would not have access to our room as I expected, (it was well after 1 pm but you cannot check in until 4 pm, I must've missed this somewhere). I explained that we just purchased a substantial amount of groceries and many were frozen or refrigerated. She made it clear that she couldn't care less about our predicament. I asked her what we should do and she reluctantly called the general manager, (at this point I'm wanting to cancel our entire reservation). Aurora the general manager arrived and she was awesome! She found a place for our refrigerated foods, apologized for the ridiculous noise and assured us that it would be taken care of. True to her word the circus act out front subsided shortly thereafter and our inital bad taste about the facility was soon removed.

The beach was not cluttered at all and quite nice but your should know that condom wrappers, used condoms and overhead airplane advertising announcing "Trojan: you can't wait to get it on!" are part of the landscape. After explaining that to my children the seaweed and dead jellyfish that washed up on the shore weren't such big deal.

Overall we were very pleased with the facility but would not ever come back to this area again. We came the week after spring break so I figured these types of experiences would not be commonplace? I understood the mountains of trash, garbage and broken bottles that had not been cleaned up from the week before and had no issue with that.

The ongoing trashiness of the community was startling though.

WONDERFUL STAY

  • 5 of 5
I got back today from a 5 day, 4 night vacation in this condo. The owner of the condo is extremely helpful in your trip planning. She always responded to emails within a matter of days, sometimes hours. The Island is BeAuTiFuL. The beach is great, you can walk for miles. The weather, even in December was mild and wonderful for us as Minnesotans. Both Blackbeards and the Wanna Wanna Beach Bar are walking distance from the condo. All other activities on the island are only minutes away. The pictures don't do the condo or the view justice. It is better in person! The condo was clean, spacious and had everything we needed and more provided. Front desk staff were courteous and helpful. We felt safe at all times. The heated pool was a treat since the ocean was a bit chilly, even for us. We were very sad to leave today and head back to chilly Minnesota, but if I ever go back to South Padre this would be the first place I would choose to stay and plan to recommend it to any family or friends that are planning a trip. It is a must!

GREAT GETAWAY!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this condo this past week (Aug 12-14, 2010). Our overall experience was great! The overall description of the property is very accurate. The pictures are true to what is there with the exception of the living room sofas which have been updated and are alot nicer than the ones shown. The condo is super clean and inviting. The kitchen is fully equipt with anything you may need to cook any meal. The location is great! You are close to very thing. The beach is just a few steps from your door and sitting on the balcony at night listening to the waves is so soothing. The property itself is great. Has one big pool that the kids really enjoyed. Management is always ready to help. The owner was super nice and very easy to get in touch with. Will definetely consider this condo for my future island getaways.
