About Greg & Sandy Dotson

Sandy and I live and work in Indianapolis we visited South Padre one weekend in 2005. We fell in love with the area and people and purchased unit 507 while there the following year we purchased 407 and recently purchased unit 906.

Greg & Sandy Dotson purchased this condo in 2005

Why Greg & Sandy Dotson chose Texas Gulf Coast

Aquarius has a friendly 24 hour security. Although it was the first high rise to be built on the island it has under gone a fantastic renovation. The grounds and landscape are immaculate. You will find all three of our units clean well supplied and updated regularly. Sorry no renters under 25.

Accomodations and entire visit were fantastic!!!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was just what we needed and expected. It was extremely clean and fresh and felt like home. The view from the 5th floor balcony was breathtaking!! There was not a single minute when we were in the living room that we didn't have the sliding door open to take in the views, the sounds and the salt air. We loved it and we will definitely be staying there again!!

Great choice!

  • 4 of 5

This condo is perfect for a small family. We were thrilled! It's in a gated property with almost step-out access to the beach. The balcony off the living area has a stunning view of the Gulf and the balcony off the master bedroom has an impressive view of the bay.

The kitchen is stocked with everything you could ever need. The unit was extremely clean and had plenty of basic linens. The Wi-fi is more than adequate to keep three or four users happy.

The front desk staff was extremely helpful. The pool and grounds are beautifully-kept and feature a hot-tub, sauna, community room with open Wi-fire and lots of books and games. I felt extremely comfortable letting our 10-year-old daughter navigate around the property by herself.

A few things to note, which aren't negatives but in the interest of leaving a helpful review I thought I should mention:

You will need to bring all toiletries and supplies, including soap, toilet paper, paper towel, trash bags, dish soap, etc. The basic toiletries (soap, shampoo, etc.) are not supplied.

The master bedroom mattress is *extremely firm*. If you don't sleep well on a firm mattress, you won't rest well here. The view and location make up for this.

The pantry has plenty of great beach toys, some boogie boards and a few folding chairs but nothing like a lounger or standard low beach chair. We bought a beach chair and left it. There is also a rattan mat my daughter used.

There are no beach towels.

No cable. So when your kids are strung out from being on the beach all day, make sure you bring some DVDs!

There is no laundry in the unit, but there is a coin-op facility on the first floor. Again, you must bring all your own supplies.

The positives far outweigh any inconvenience of having to bring things in. We would happily book this condo again if we come back to SPI!

Just what we needed and more!

  • 5 of 5

Our vacation plans changed at the last minute and we were so excited to find a condo right on the beach to rent for a week. Greg and Sandy's condo was perfect for our family, everything was well stocked and we really did not lack for anything during our stay. One of the reasons we chose this property was that it was nicely furnished, with light colors and a "beachy" feel to it. We also read the previous reviews and could tell that the owners were diligent in making sure anyone who stayed here was well taken care of, which we were! Both the owners and the management crew at the property were attentive and made our stay so relaxing and enjoyable. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you could possibly need if you were preparing your meals, as we did. The beds were comfortable and plenty of extra linens and towels. We would definitely rent from the Dotsons again in the future! Thank you for a great week on South Padre Island!

Excellent property and location was great!

  • 5 of 5

There is a reason why the reviews are great. The pictures tell a story that is completely accurate of the property. Actually, after arriving to the unit, our spirits rose significantly because it was even better than expected. Usually, I am disappointed by my choice of vacation lodging choices. However, our vacation started off on a high note when my family said "we love it!" Music to my ears! Beautiful views of the gulf and the bay and very easy access to the beach, which was not crowded at all during our stay (week before July 4th). The cleanliness of the unit was superb and the owner is very attentive. I would highly recommend this property!

Owner recommendations

A must, and our first stop when reaching the island for lunch is Dirty Al's for their shrimp basket. Our favorite spot is Palm Street Pier. Try any of the three award winning shrimp cook-off dinners and don't forget a piece of key lime pie. Sit on the veranda at Amberjack's for a great sunset dinner, or there is a sunset dinner cruise at Laguna Bobs. But our favorite sunset location is on our own bedroom balcony for wine and pizza, where you can also watch fireworks in the summer. (W.I.F.I. available in unit)
