Excellent on the beach location

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I rented this condo for a stay at the beach. The interior was nice, clean, and had everything as promised. The unit is a corner unit, so it has a balcony facing the gulf, and another one facing the bay. You can see the sun rise from one and set from the other. The complex has a nice pool that is ought of the sun by the afternoon, in case you have gotten a little red. We also enjoyed the hot tub. The walk to the beach is only about 100 yards. The property is VERY secure, with a code needed to get in to park, and a code to open the gate to the beach.

Check in and out was quick and friendly. I thought the beach here was really nice, and we would stay here again without question. It's also within easy walking distance of at least 10 different restaurants and bars, but far enough away so there's no noise.

Great Condo

  • 4 of 5
We stayed 7 days and loved the condo & view of the beach. The furniture was very nice in the living room, bedroom and on the balcony. As frequent visitors to SPI, we've stayed at numerous condos on the beach. This is the first time we've had a chat set on the balcony (as well as the normal chaise lounges). Very nice touch. (Could use more towels. 6 towels for the 2 of us for 7 days weren't enough, so we washed once.) We will rent again.

Our condo was great!

  • 5 of 5
The unit had been freahly painted and the balcony new furniture. All the appliances worked and there plenty of utensils, glassware, etc. The only slight drawback was the bathroom fan which was somewhat noisy but we were told that was typical of all the units in Inverness. Not a big deal.

We look forward to coming back.

Review of VRBO 339494. Condo in Inverness Building, SPI

  • 1 of 5
We stayed in this condo for a week in February, 2014. Before we arrived we were concerned about some of poor reviews on the VRBO website so spoke to the manager a week before we arrived. She said the problem in the August 2013 review was that the unit had been sitting unoccupied with the A/C turned off, and that would not be a problem on our arrival.
We found the unit cleanliness was not up to our expectations, especially the bathroom which was very dirty. The unit did have an underlying smell that the owners were trying to mask by installing 3 automatic aerosol sprays. The kitchen cabinets were old and many of the doors were either hanging off, or did not close properly. The bedding was of a questionable standard, so we went out and bought our own set of sheets. The furniture in the living room was not at all the same as shown in the photos. The seating units were futons which we found very uncomfortable, the TV was sitting on top of a cabinet so about 6 ft high and not watchable until we moved it down to sit on a chair. The chairs and cushions on the balcony were old, very worn and uncomfortable. In summary we definitely do not recommend anyone to rent this condo. We give this unit zero stars.

Not at all as described!

  • 1 of 5
The first thing you notice upon opening the door at arrival is the overwhelming smell of mold and mildew. It was so bad that it made my son and I sick. We never took our clothes out of the suitcases but they absorbed the smell. The condo itself was very dirty. The floors were dirty and the chair even had sunflower seeds in it from previous guests. The walls were dirty as well. The balcony was covered in bird feces on both sides. We called the manager the day after arrival because we had arrived so late the night before. She was in a rush to get my husband off the phone and didn't hear all of his concerns. She contacted housekeeping who came and cleaned one spot of the wall. She said the smell was because the air had not been on in quite some time. That's it. No, I'm sorry you're unhappy or anything. The furniture is outdated and falling apart. The pillows are flat and useless. I feel bad for the owners of this unit and wonder if they know what disrepair it is in. As for the Inverness building the parking garage is dirty and poorly lite. Only one elevator works so it takes a long time to get an elevaotr when you need it. This was the absolute worst place we have ever stayed. If we had not pre-paid for the condo we would have not spent one night there. I do not recommend this unit at all!

Absolutely Amazing...

  • 5 of 5
What an amazing stay. I can't imagine a more economical and convenient place to stay. If you are expecting 5 star accommodations you'll be disappointed but if you are looking for a clean, comfortable and cozy place to stay for your vacation to South Padre this unit is for you. Our family of four had enough room where we weren't feeling in each other's way. The pull out couches were okay for younger kids but I wouldn't want to be an older teenager or adult and have to sleep on them. The views from the super large patio (probably the best feature of the unit) were spectacular. It would have been nice to have a little better patio furniture (one lounge chair was cracking and would pinch every now and then) to lounge on since it was such an inviting place to sit, read, nap and take in the gorgeous views and feel the ocean breeze (I think the owners should just charge $50 more a week for the next year or two and invest that into some nice, comfortable patio furniture--would be well worth it). The keyless entry system worked perfectly and made coming and going so convenient not having to worry about a room key. Don't worry about being on the 9th floor, the elevators work great. Overall, if we ever go back to South Padre we know where we'll be staying.
