We had 3 families stay in 2 of Julie's condos and had a wonderful time. Both were nicely furnished and clean. We look forward to returning to South Padre Island in the future and wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. Thanks for everything Julie.

Fantastic views

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in this very clean, comfortable and well equipped condo. The view of the ocean from the condo is magnificent and access to the beach is so close. The resort is very well maintained and with good security. I really appreciated the well equipped kitchen - there was everything I needed to prepare meals. The owner Laura is great to deal with - extremely helpful and gets back to you quickly if you have any questions. We did need to call maintenance on one occasion and they attended to our needs immediately. The beach is gorgeous with warm clear water. I would definitely recommend this property and look forward to future visits.

Spring Break- Great location, but not ideal condo

  • 2 of 5

Overall this condo is located in a great location, facing the beach and has a large balcony. The condominiums are older and we kept this in mind. The problems started before we got to the condo, however, because the wristbands required were $20 for each person while we were there for the week of Spring Break. It had said $5 in our contract. We had to pay $140 at the gate in order to enter, so don't pay the condo owner! Also, there is no charge for parking permits, which she had tried to charge us per day! When asked about the extra cost to us for the wristbands she stated "it was a typo" and never refunded that money out of our fees. We entered the condo and one of the bedrooms had a king size bed instead of the twins shown in the picture. The refrigerator had leaked water everywhere, and there was no access to a washer/dryer as well, which was listed. I contacted the owner and she offered to send housekeeping to the condo to fix everything, but it may not be that night, but we could use the sleeper sofa. Really?! They came and rearranged the beds to become two twin beds with the correct bedding, unlocked the door to the washer/dryer, and do some clean up from dirt in the master bedroom and the leaking refrigerator.The "grill" listed in the VRBO page is actually a dinky charcoal grill not allowed on the grounds. So why have it in the condo? Everyone else has propane grills on their balconies. Forget wireless internet, It was in and out. The satellite used for the tv would not stream very well and we tried to use our Amazon Prime account to watch a movie and it couldn't stream. Luckily we had brought trash bags, toilet paper, paper towels, and dishwasher tabs. We were there with 7 people for 5 days and we paid for cleaning, but they wanted us to wash the dishes before we left without providing said dishwasher soap to do it, or trash bags to take out the trash as we left. (one trash bag provided) We had 5 rolls of toilet paper for 3 bathrooms. However, the air conditioner worked great. Big table to seat everyone for meals. The kitchen is older, not many cooking pans, etc., but we made it work. We paid the highest rate during this week and I would not stay here again. Almost 4 weeks had gone by and I had to ask why my deposit was not refunded. I was told she would have to check and then I had my refund the next day. This unit needs better management, is a shame because of the location and view. FYI- 3rd floor, no elevator for those with disabilities

Three balconies with front row view of the beach

  • 4 of 5

Comfortable and clean accommodations with all the needed accessories to make a week stay complete. Rooms are not oversized but functioned just fine for our group of five. There are beds for more people which would create tighter living conditions but with the three nice bathrooms would still be ok. My 80 year old mother would rather have an elevator than the three large flights of stairs we used to get to the unit.

We like to cook our meals when vacationing like this as we feel we have one of the best views on the island and eat out a lot during our busy lives at home. We found enough pots, pans and utensils to get by but it wasn't the best cooking accommodations we've seen. Utensils were ok but the baking sheets and some pots sizes could use an upgrade. The front large burner on the stove wouldn't work leaving us only three burners.

The unit has a wonderful large table with many chairs for meals and our evening card games.

The outside property has been recently upgraded and offered comfortable areas to relax and enjoy views of the beach or more wind protected pool area for the sandblasting blustery days. On site security is a bonus.

We very much enjoyed our relaxing stay at this location.

Ready To Go Back

  • 5 of 5

We had a great experience at this condo. It was very clean and had a great view of the ocean, the sunrises from there were beautiful. The property was also beautiful, well maintained and safe. We were close to dining and shopping & there were plenty of things for 5 teenagers to do, they were never bored, and thats saying a lot! We all enjoyed the swimming pool after a day in the sand. We really loved staying here and will return next year. Thank you.

Beautiful and Safe

  • 5 of 5

First of all we chose this Condo because it promised beautiful beachfront views and access, beautiful resort like grounds and just the right amount of bedrooms we needed to hold our family. Also, it was the ONLY property on the Island which could accommodate a third vehicle. This was for the 4th of July weekend and we knew we couldn’t pass that up. So we took it. As promised the property was clean, beautiful well maintained and safe. This took a huge load off our back because two of the vehicles we traveled in were trucks and we had a lot of gear in the back. We felt sale and assured to leave the cargo in the trucks during our entire week stay.

The kids loved the clean swimming pool and easy access to the beach. As promised the beachfront ocean views were breathtaking. My fiancé and I enjoyed coffee on the balcony every morning. It was a wonderful way to start the day. The condo itself was very comfortable and I appreciated having the washer and dryer to keep up with all the beach towels. We greatly enjoyed our stay in your home. Thank you.
