We enjoy coming to the Island to kick back and relax. Eveyone on the Island is so friendly. The beach is great. The restaurants have good food, entertainment, and great service.

Karen Smith purchased this condo in 2006

We love being directly on the beach. The Tiki is as close to the beach as it gets without getting your feet wet. We also love the relaxed atmosphere on the island. There are shuttles available from both Brownsville and Harlingen airports, making for a convenient trip.

The views from the balcony are what sold us on this condo. You cannot get any closer to the water. We love to sit and watch the kiteboarders, the kids playing on the beach, and watching skydivers land on the beach next door.

Spring Break after 50 days starting below zero.

Very clean and awesome view of the gulf. We really enjoyed the facility and our condo was awesome but we have just a little word of warning. We knew we were going during spring break and we were cool with that, but if you are a critical person and do not like crowds and some rocking into the night you may not want to go during what is called Texas week. Claytons's next door is a new hot spot and Texas week rocks at that place. We witnessed the last weekend of Texas week. Once Texas week was over spring break still existed but it was a lot more manageable. Kids having fun and indulging a little. Don't let spring break scare you away from this place as you can head north and have a whole beach all to yourself. Also, the pool area was great and a good retreat if you needed a break from the beach action. If you come from Minnesota for a winter break and after the winter we had there is no place that I could be too critical of. Go, warm up and have some fun and don't be critical of others having fun! Enjoy your life, you only get one try.
Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write your review. As you know, we do let our renters know if they are coming during Spring Break, and appreciate your accurate account of Texas Week.

We are glad you enjoyed the condo and the Island, and your break from the Minnesota winter!

Immaculate condo on a beautiful white sandy beach

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Mar 14, 2014
  • Stayed: Mar 2014
This condo looks directly out on to a white sandy beach. The sound of the ocean is constant so you feel like you are in a tropical location and it is wonderful to listen to as you are lulled to sleep at night. The condo itself is immaculate and includes everything you will need during your stay. The condo property is well kept and the staff is friendly and very accessible. You will feel like you are truly on vacation. Lots of great restaurants in the area and the turtle rescue sanctuary is right across the street. For you older folks though (like us) . . . be advised that south padre island is one of the number locations for spring breakers so the beach can be very busy and noisy :)
Owner's Response: Thank you for taking time to post your review, we are happy you enjoyed our beach home. Our goal is for our guests to be comfortable and to be able to enjoy their vacation, and our housekeeper, as well as all of the condo's employees work hard to make that happen, we appreciate them as well!

We hope to have you back for your next tropical getaway.

The condo is nice in a casual way. The pictures do not really do it justice. The sunrises are stunning. Everything is close by. The beach is right there. The sky is dark at night and we were able to use the telescope. The housekeeper was very prompt and courteous. Karen has the system down to a science and everything went flawlessly. We've already booked for next year. Thank you for an excellent vacation! Charles and Simon.
Owner's Response: We are glad that you enjoyed your stay, and were able to use the telescope. The sunrises are worth getting up early for! We were happy to book your trip for next year, and look forward to hosting you again!

If you are looking for the best 1 bedroom condo on South Padre Island, this is the one. #3rd floor beach front view, a balcony you'll spend most of your time on, stocked with everything you'll need for your stay, and did I mention - a great value. Conveniently located to everything the island has to offer. Sea Turtle Refuge Center and the Birding Center is right across the street. This was our first time at Karen's condo, and It won't be our last. She is the perfect host, providing answers to any questions you may have during your stay.
Owner's Response: We strive to respond to our guests' questions or concerns as quickly as we can, so you can relax and enjoy your vacation. We look forward to your next booking!

Directly on the beach! Large balcony overloooking gulf of Mexico. Easy walk on beach to Beach Bar/Grill with entertainment. 5 minute walk to Sea Turtle Rescue Center; 10 minute walk to SPI Birding Center, 15 minute walk to SPI Convention Center.

Other Activities: Shelling, dolphin watching, surf fishing right out front,

The evening Catamaran sailing dinner cruise is excellent, a gentle cruise in the bay. Entertainment and great food is supplied, they have a grill on-board for grilled shrimp and fajitas, BYOB and fireworks cruises in the summer. Sunset at Laguna Bob's (formally The Wahoo) is a tradition. On especially great sunset nights, people actually stand up and applaud. A BYOB sunset on the 'FLATS', at the beach access just North of the Convention Center, is also spectacular. And don't forget to relax and enjoy an evening or two on the balcony or on the beach in front of the Condo.

Golf: SPI Golf Club is about a 20 minute drive in Laguna Vista. Very nice golf course with some holes right on the Bay.

There are also golf courses in and around the Brownsville area (30-40 Minutes) that are nice and have very reasonable fees.
