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.

Excellent location!

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this condo! So many amenities that we couldn't take advantage of them all! Check in and check out was a breeze and the office staff was very helpful and friendly! The views from the balcony were beautiful- it was perfect being right by the beach. We did not notice any excessive noise the entire time we were there! We will definitely recommend this location to friends and family!

Amazing view!!!!

  • 5 of 5
It was a beautiful condo with everything you need!!! Amazing views and relaxing with the sound of the waves. You can still hear the waves even if you have the patio doors closed!! You feel safe even at night when there's not many people around. Secure and easy to book. And I like how you can just text Karen directly and she will respond and take care of any issue that may come up. Will definitely recommend this condo to everyone I know and I can't wait to be back!! Thank Karen for everything!!

Partly a good experience

  • 3 of 5
The kitchen, bathroom, and balcony are excellent. The bed and the sofa were uncomfortable and the linens were old. That bed felt pretty old and it was pretty noisy. Property was clean. After we left, we got a message that we damaged the kitchen sink and a dining chair which is totally false. We took good care of the property and used the kitchen sink to wash the dishes as it is supposed to be use for. We used the dining chairs for the intended use, to sit. The owner is just saying it to keep the deposit.

Owner's Response: This review was submitted by a guest who is upset because they are being charged for damage which occurred to our property during their rental. Our housekeeper performs a damage check immediately after each guest’s check-out, and during this rental, there was major damage done to one of the dining chairs, as well as a large chip in the granite countertop by the sink. The guest was immediately provided with photos of the damage, and advised that their security deposit was being held until we had a bid for repairing the granite.
However, the guest posted this review the following day, prior to any partial refund of the security deposit after having the granite repaired. They were not assessed for damage to the chair, as we are able to do that repair ourselves.
The linens have all been replaced within the last 6 months, the sofa is less than 2 years old and the comfort of the bed is a personal choice.
As you can see from the many 5 star reviews, we keep our property at a high standard for our guests.

Island vacation

  • 5 of 5
We are on our way home from our vacation at the Tiki. My husband and I stayed there with our 2 dogs and we had a great time!

Pros: very close to the beach
You have a beautiful view of the ocean from the balcony
Fully stocked in every sense of the term. The owners have done a great job of making it feel like home. The kitchen had everything you need to prepare meals. The closet has beach chairs, toys for kids, a boogie board, games, etc. the bathroom even had a hair dryer which I thought was a nice touch.
The bedroom is very good size and has plenty of space for all of your things. The balcony access from the bedroom and living room is great!
Pet friendly- our dogs love the condo!
The condo is very nice. The shower is great and we had a wonderful time.

Cons:
The bed was hard and not comfortable to us at all. I had a hard time sleeping and woke up a lot through the night. This may be a preference issue though as I have read other comments from previous visitors saying they loved the bed. It was the hardest bed I've ever slept on.
Towels: there were only 2 of us in the property and we ran out of towels quickly. There is a laundry area on the property but it's not close so it's pretty inconvenient.
No elevator- I knew this before booking, but I didn't realize how hard it would be to carry all of our bags up and down the stairs.
If you like the beach chairs that lay flat you will have to bring your own. The chairs provided by the owners are nice, but don't lay flat. There are some mats that you can bring and lay on the sand. They have rental chairs on the beach, but they are very expensive.

All in all, we had a great time and would come back! The tiki is in a perfect location and the island is easily navigated if you drive your own car. We drove to town to buy souvenirs and ended up driving all the way to the north end and found a really pretty beach area. We ate at burgerfi and weren't really impressed. We didn't try any other restaurants, we utilized the kitchen to cook our meals.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking time to write a detailed review. We are very happy that you enjoyed the condo and all of the amenities we provide for our guests. We have tried to stock the condo with things to make our guests comfortable, and so you can drop your suitcases, grab your flip flops and hit the beach! I am also glad you enjoyed cooking in the kitchen, and spending time on the balcony enjoying the beautiful view of the Gulf.
Regarding the cons:
I do believe the bed is a preference.
Towels are set up with a certain number of sets per guest, and we are confirming with our housekeeper the number being left. The laundry room is adjacent to the parking lot, and we do provide a laundry hamper for our guests' convenience, should they need to use the laundry room.
There is no elevator, which is clear on our listing, however, the stairs are worth it for the view from the balcony!
The beach chairs are not lounge chair style, those are too large to keep in the closet, and too heavy to carry up and down the stairs. We provide the beach chairs, a cooler, a beach umbrella, straw mats and a beach blanket, as "extras" to add to a relaxing, stress-free vacation for our guests.
I am very happy that you enjoyed our condo and your time on our beautiful Island, and I do look forward to hosting your next trip to South Padre!

Relaxing Respite

The condo was just as advertised. The view was just what we were looking for. Very good customer service. Our desire was to enjoy the beach and relax which is just what we did. We have already spread the word to family and friends about this condo and would love to return.

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.
