About Roberto

I'm an Industrial Engineer, specialized in Manufacturing Systems. Originally from Argentina, but a local resident for the last 30 years. My wife and I enjoy coming to SPI on a very frequent basis (we live only 25 minutes away from SPI). Really good restaurants here...good ambient. Wonderful sea breeze!

Roberto purchased this condo in 2012

Why Roberto chose South Padre Island

Beautiful beaches, close to home, warm almost all year long...and eventually planning to retire to SPI.

What makes this condo unique

It's walking distance to the beach, which my wife and I enjoy it very much. It is also very close to some good restaurants such as PadreRitaVille and Blackbeards and to the local supermarket, the Blue Marlin.

Good rental for a small family/2 people

  • 3 of 5
The location is great and a nice layout for the small size. The pool area and furniture was nice. All the appliances worked. I loved the convenience of the payment through the Homeaway website. We selected this unit because pets were considered, which is why I gave it 3 stars. A couple of notes- the one main bathroom-shower is very small. I felt 2 washcloths for a unit accommodating up to 4 people seemed pretty sparse. The kitchen tools and dishes were very limited and could be updated pretty cheaply through garage sales or store sales. Examples are no corkscrew or can opener; the few plastic cups available had a bad smell. The sound proofing between the upstairs and downstairs was nonexistent. This is the 3rd rental I've had on SPI in 3 years and I have to admit I've had much better accommodations for the same price. The most bothersome thing was the multitude of plug in air fresheners! We were choking on the smell and had to unplug them in order to survive the week. I knew I had to get out by 10 a.m. because that checkout time was posted at least 4 times in 2 languages, but I really wish there was a listing of the TV channels somewhere. I appreciated having the contract rules available so we could make sure we got our deposit back, but a few additions could make someone's stay much more enjoyable.

Owner's Response: We certainly appreciate the review, even though it is not what we expected and certainly is not what the numerous other reviews say. It is our goal to provide a clean, safe, comfortable place at a reasonable price for people to enjoy the beach, and the fun activities at South Padre Island. -----
.
The positive first… the unit has new sofas, new mattresses, new A/C, new TVs and all tile floors. Pets are welcome through a small pet fee. It is a two-bedroom, one and a half bathroom ground floor unit. The shower in the main bathroom is of standard size and to code. We supply all silverware, dishes, pots and pans new. We understand they wear or break over time, so we periodically replace or replenish them, including corkscrews and can openers.
------ .
As it is, the island is a place with very high humidity, so we thought that by adding air fresheners, our guests would have a pleasant smelling environment where to spend fun time. The beauty of the air fresheners is that if the aroma is not what you like or if it is too strong, all you need to do it just disconnect them, and the aroma dissipates in a matter of minutes.
------ .
Especially during peak seasons, check-in and check-out times are important because our Cleaning crew has only a few hours to do deep cleaning. It is posted in two languages, English and Spanish because of the proximity with Mexico and the numerous guests visiting us from there, who may not speak English and in order to try to avoid misunderstandings (bilingual signs and documents is a very common practice around here)
----- .
We are proud to say that Security deposits are refunded promptly and much faster that what the contract states. Usually they are refunded within 72 hours after departure, sometimes even faster.
------ .
As I mentioned, we put a lot of effort and enthusiasm to provide a clean, safe and comfortable place for our guests to enjoy and we really hope that is the case. We always appreciate a phone call, a text message or an e-mail to let us know something is not up to par, and if possible, we certainly will make the effort to correct it. -----

PEACEFILLED RETREAT

  • 5 of 5
Accommodations were very comfortable, clean and well maintained. The description was accurate. Roberto responded to questions before and during our stay in a timely manner. The landscaping is beautiful. We especially liked the back yard Landscaping. It was a "world apart" with its quiet peacefulness. We have been coming to SPI for over 30 years though never stayed here. We will definitely stay here again.

Nice and Cozy 2 bedroom, close to the beach!

  • 5 of 5
My fiancée and I were completely amazed with this rental! It was nice and cozy, a perfect little getaway for us and our dog. The property is pet friendly, which was the main thing we were looking for, and the unit itself was very well kept and clean. It's just the right size for a small family looking for a relaxing weekend. And its so close to the beach and many of our favorite restaurants! Roberto is awesome! He's very nice and made sure we had everything we needed while we stayed at his property. We would recommend this place to all our family and friends, and we definitely will be renting this property out in the near future.

Awesome place to stay in SPI

  • 5 of 5
This is a wonderful place to stay any time you are visiting South Padre Island. The home was perfect for shopping, visiting the beach or enjoying any on the numerous activities on the island. The home owner was very kind and accommodating each time we called with questions prior to our arrival! We will definitely stay here again!!

Highly recommended

  • 5 of 5
This is a VERY well maintained and immaculately clean residence in a great location: 3-minute walk to the beach, grocery right around the corner, a few blocks to Schlitterbahn, movies, mini-golf, and sea turtle rescue center. A minor plumbing issue popped up shortly after our arrival and was dealt with immediately and with a minimum of disruption. Semi-private pool is a real bonus! I can't recommend this property highly enough.
