Please write me or call me anytime for more details and pictures about this great location. SE HABLA ESPANOL.
We are a couple of professional people that are living the American dream. We came to America to study and stayed to form a family of 3 children.
The Breakers is our second home. It has everything that we can dream of-- specially having the beach at paces away. Also the complex is so quiet and beautiful. The staff are so ready to help you.
Believe me, you will not find something comparable at South Padre.
Besides the complete conveniences in our unit, the complex has everything that you may want. Specially the enclosed tempered swimming pool and also two outside pools.
When it's all about location, this place has it!
This unit is right on the beach. You park your car at the door, walk 20 feet to the condo, go through the unit and walk out onto the patio and within 100 feet your feet are in the sand and ocean.
While you attempt to cook a meal, the view and sound is of the ocean. I say "attempt" because the condo itself hasn't been updated in 30 years. All appliances are old. The fridge in particular has broken or missing parts, some are held together with duct tape. The microwave is the newest at 15 years old. The kitchen utensils are Dollar General quality.
The TV's, beds and sofas are from the early 80's. The bathrooms and the kitchen are original to when the unit was built. This unit is a candidate for an HGTV remodel.
That said, the exterior of the condo complex is secure and well maintained. The staff is pleasant and attentive. Their on-site facilities are very good.
The owner was pleasant to deal with and prompt in having a staff member repair a non-functioning door entry.
South Padre is a summer resort area suitable for young families. It is not an ideal place for “Winter Texans” being too cool and grey to be enjoyable. There are few attractions and the food is generally ordinary fare. All the usual service amenities one needs are readily available. SPI also offers a free bus service.
We arrived on Friday and got in right around checkin time. Condo was clean and ready to go! We were very pleased and surprised by the ground floor view it was great. This condo has a wonderful set up for 2 couples. The master had a king bed and private bathroom and the 2nd bedroom was a queen but it had a private entrance to it's own bathroom to or could be accessed from the main area. We just shut it off and each used our own private baths. Both beds slept great no mattress issues like at some places.
Kitchen set up was good, full refrigrator, stove/oven and microwave and dishwasher. We didn't cook to much but looked like it had ample cooking supplies.
What was really nice was all the imenities next to it that we could use. Outside pool was great but to cold to use this time of year. There was also a inside pool but it was cold, would of been great if heated, steam room, ping pong tables and just nice area to sit and talk. If weather was nicer it would be a great pool inside or out for sunbathing. If we were coming back to Padre we will look to see if this is available.
Owner was easy to work with and I had my deposit back within a day after check out. Good information packet was there on where and what to do in the area.
Few things to think of that would be nice would be a guide of the TV channels, we did alot of surfing trying to find what we were looking for. Upgrading to a flat screen would be nice to as it was a little hard to watch in the TV unit. Just a thought for the future!
Thanks Very & Linda for a great vacation rental, we enjoyed staying at your home!
It's great to be on the ground floor. Nicely furnished. Quiet complex. Would definitely recommend.
We have stayed 3times and are booking again!! It is a great unit, the owners are always a joy to deal with, the location on the beach and in relation to town is great. Couldn't be happier.
We had an absolutely great time while staying. It is very spacious, clean, fully equipped, very comfortable and has a great location. I would highly recommend it.
This condo have a great beach view, is one of the most nearest to the ocean, you are a few steps for the sand and sea, have a great pools, heated and normal and a Jacuzzi that works great, you can go and relax any time of the year, I highly recommend this condo it was so comfortable. Camacho family was very kindly with us, and we will visit again in summer, thanks..
The Laguna Madre area located in the Rio Grande Valley includes the towns of South Padre Island, Port Isabel and Laguna Vista (home to the outstanding South Padre Island Golf Course and Community). With miles of beautiful beaches the joys of tropical weather, abundant shallow and deep water fishing and a growing world-wide reputation as a haven for birding and eco-tourism, the Laguna Madre area is well-positioned for additional growth and development in all sectors.
Trends in the Laguna Madre area have changed in the past 10 years. South Padre Island has gone from a population of under 2000 full-time residents with second homeowners or vacationers coming mainly from Texas and Mexico; to a premiere destination for first and second homeowners winter visitors and vacationers from all over the United States, Mexico and Europe. Laguna Vista (15 miles west of the Island) has changed from a few permit residents and cactus fields to a fast growing community with a fantastic golf course that satisfies the desires of both residents and visitors to “tee one up”. Port Isabel located between the Island and Laguna Vista has a variety of channel front lots and homes for the fishing enthusiast. You may venture into the Laguna Madre Bay to catch a redfish or go deep-water fishing in the Gulf for that record-breaking catch.
Visitors from the East coast to the West coast; from Mexico and Europe are rapidly becoming property owners in the Laguna Madre area. An eclectic mix of retires, young married couples and families of all sizes have chosen to locate in the golf community in Laguna Vista, while many second home purchasers who still desire the look and the sound of the Gulf of Mexico with it’s peaceful white sand have chosen waterfront residences in Port Isabel or South Padre Island. Our full-time residents’ desires vary from Island life to one of the local neighborhood communities.
There is a free public transportation bus that takes you around the island and near towns.
