About Luis Torres

We are working professionals that live in the suburbs outside of Houston. We have one son and one daughter.

Luis Torres purchased this condo in 2011

Why Luis Torres chose South Padre Island

Our family is from the Valley so it was only natural for us to purchase a place of our own in South Padre Island.

Las Puertas is our home away from home. My family enjoys coming to the Island to relax and have a good time. When we can't make it to the condo, we love renting it out to people who also want to enjoy all that South Padre Island has to offer.

What makes this condo unique

The South Padre Island is a great place to enjoy the brown sugar beaches and beautiful turquoise water. Our place has the amenities and seclusion for a great vacation. Its also fun to enjoy the many activities in near by Brownsville and Harlingen.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Condo has nice furnishings, linens. Everything was clean and pool looked great. We could have used an iron and 2 wine glasses. (A lot of plastic drinking glasses). There was not to much to do with the high winds and cooler weather. Grocery store was near and a lot of nice eating places. We did some charter fishing and a dolphin tour along with any tour we could we could find. The upstairs condo was being remodeled so it was very noisy.

Comfortable and convenient

  • 4 of 5

Over all it was a great place to stay.

The condo itself needs a bit of TLC. We found the proximity to the beach and activities really great. The condo as mentioned needs a few things, such as a good vent cleaning and detail cleaning. The cabinets throughout need fixing and the lock to the patio also needs to be fixed. The pots and pans provided need replacing as the Teflon is coming off as do some of the kitchen tools.

These are small details that are not huge deal breakers but would have been nice and would have raised the star rating.

The last thing is the owner called back when we reached out to them. The manager did also however she stated she would get a new remote and never did. We dealt with it as it was a small issue.

We assume from the genuine response from the owners that if they knew the few things are needed they would respond accordingly.

Overall we would stay again as the items listed were overall small but would have been nice to have had during our stay.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the candid feedback. I will work with my property management team to address the small inconveniences. As you mentioned, they are relatively easy to address. I strive to give my guest a pleasant experience.

Perfect.

  • 5 of 5

The property was perfect for our stay. My family stayed for a week in March. Condo had everything we needed, plenty of space, well maintained. Beach access was fantastic. Close enough to shopping without being in a loud area. Hope to visit again. Highly recommend.

Spacious and nice condo

  • 5 of 5

The condo looks like the pictures and Mr. Torres was responsive to your needs and questions. The private patio was a nice feature as well as the dishwasher and washer and dryer. The condo was very clean and well decorated with the beds being comfortable. It had two nice bedrooms and good closet space along with nice bathrooms. We enjoyed the garage for housing our bikes and beach supplies. We have no regrets and enjoyed our stay better than the year before. If we were coming back, we would rent it again.Our recommendations are the kitchen needs to have more supplies and utensils for cooking, needs end tables for placing your drinks, and more lamps for better lighting and reading. One main reason we are not coming back has nothing to do with the condo, but the weather. We have experienced 2 years of colder than normal temperatures with too many overcast days and rain. We even took a vacation within a vacation and went to Cabol San Lucas for a week to escape the bad weather. Our company the last week of our trip only experienced two nice days with the rest being rainy, dreary and very cool. Thanks Luis for all your help and having such a nice place to stay.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review. It's unfortunate that the weather has been less than desirable for the last couple of year. The silver lining to the situation is that the weather has brought much needed rain to the region which was previous in a drought. There’s a saying in Texas: If you don’t like the weather, wait a minute and it’ll change.

GREAT VACATION

  • 5 of 5

This was a great home away from home. Close to shops, beach and restaurants. The owners were very helpful, they answered any questions we had and resolved any issues promptly. The pool was very nice and the private patio was wonderful for morning coffee. It is a clean comfortable home. I would recommend this property to anyone wanting to visit South Padre Island.
