About Verna

Jeff & I went on a vacation to Texas in 2005 to research the idea of moving from the Midwest cold winters to the Galveston-Houston area. We flew to San Antonio and rented a car to make a leisurely drive up the coast from South Padre Island. We made it to Corpus Christi and turned back! South Padre Island had hooked us! The water was bluer and the feel was right. South Padre Island welcomed us with its beauty and warm local charm.

In 2007 we moved to Kingsville, Texas. A very cool place but not 'the valley' and not the island. In 2008 we moved to McAllen, Texas -- getting closer! Finally, in 2011 we found our ideal property on South Padre Island. Special thanks goes to Shirley Donahue at Sand Dollar Realty for taking us all over the island several years to look at properties!

We love the island and our property. We believe you will too! After all, Life is better on the Beach!

Fantastic view!

  • 5 of 5
Picked the wrong time to visit...inclement weather most of the week. Condo is great for those of us who just enjoy watching the surf and sitting on the beach. Everything was comfortable and the view and proximity to the water can't be beat. Balcony is a good place to eat breakfast or have coffee, weather permitting of course. If you have to be stuck inside, this is still a good place to be! Will try again earlier next year.

Just What We Were Looking For

  • 4 of 5
My husband and I were looking for a small condo with easy beach access and this was perfect. Although located on the 4th floor, there is an elevator for easy access with your bags. You also have a private parking space and are located very near the main strip with many restaurants and shops. The condo has a nice balcony that gives you a beautiful, unobstructed view of the ocean/beach and you hear the roar of the waves when you open the sliding glass doors. The kitchen is small, but we easily made breakfast and lunch meals. The condo is nicely decorated and furnished perfectly for a beach get away. The bathroom has two sinks that made it nice for us to get ready together in the mornings, but the tub and toilet area could use a little work due to age/use. We thoroughly enjoyed the trip and would rent again.

Just fair

  • 2 of 5
Great view and location. Construction crew dumped white liquid waste along entrance to the beach the first hour we were there. Entrance to the beach was excessively overgrown with weeds. Condo was somewhat dirty with sand everywhere, and human hair in the fridge and freezer. Paint was missing on trim, peeling off walls and a large area had water damage.

Owner's Response: We leave our number on the Welcome sign in the kitchen and in the Information Book asking guests to contact us if there are any problems with the property. The housekeeper would have been happy to return and fix any problems. We went to the property to check it after your review. The beach path was clear but we learned from the property management company that they had just trimmed it. So that issue is resolved.
The construction you mentioned caused the water leak. They are currently investigating where the leak is coming from and then they will repair it followed by the paint damage in the condo. They should not have dumped their waste as they did; however, we do not have control over that.
We love the view and location also. We hope you did enjoy your vacation.

Our first visit to South Padre Island

  • 4 of 5
The location of this unit is great...just a few steps from the beach. Pool and hot tub are nice amenities. Condo was clean and neat. Decor was not extravagant, but unit had all the items we needed for a beach trip. Kitchen was somewhat small.
