Ideal Property

  • 5 of 5

I had long ago given up on Texas beaches, but this was my first trip to South Padre and it was absolutely beautiful. What made it even more special was this condo. It is even nicer than the pictures, if that is possible. Everything, from the furnishings, to linens, to mattresses, were high end. And Diane was so responsive when the internet had a glitch - I was back on line quickly. Waking up to have morning coffee on the balcony was the perfect way to start each day. I am a single parent, who traveled with 4 late teens, and there was plenty of room for all us to spread out and enjoy ourselves. The kitchen had everything we could possibly need to prepare our breakfasts and lunches, and it even had a crockpot for one of our dinners. The "kids" were able to walk to Schliterbahn, but were a little disappointed at how small it was compared to the flagship location. I was grateful for the discounted tickets that were available through the condo office. Speaking of the office and staff, they were great as well. A very polite gentleman who worked in maintenance knocked on the door to let me know that I had a very low tire, and he was kind enough to put air in it for us so we could go get the tire looked at. The beach was a close walk and never too crowded, even though it was the 4th of July. We highly recommend visiting the Sea Turtle Rescue facility and taking the Original Dolphin Cruise at sunset. Louie's Backyard was also a hit. We can hardly wait to return, and will definitely stay at this condo again!!!

Great condo

  • 5 of 5

This is such a great place to stay. We had 4 adults and 2 children staying here. The beds were comfortable, the views were great, and the place was clean! It was great that there were condiments and stuff in the fridge! The condo pool and even the beach area where never crowded! There were beach towels, toys, and chairs available to use. And it was a great price! The only issue I had was that at least once a day the elevator was not working properly and we would have to use the stairs. But that is not the fault of the condo owners. I highly recommend for families to stay here! It was awesome and will stay there again!

Great location and nice clean condo

  • 5 of 5

Our family really enjoyed our stay. This condo was very nice and had everything you might need. The bed in the master room was extremely comfortable. It was also a great location for us. This is a smaller complex so the pool was never crowded and there was plenty of beach area to set up your tent. This is also a gated condo which is nice. We will definitely come back soon and rent the same condo.

A wonderful experience

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed this condo immensely, and the only negative was that we had to leave!! We are a family of mom and dad, 21 y.o. daughter, 19 y.o. son, and 2 year old granddaughter. The unit was excellent for us. I liked the room separation… kids down the hall, parents off of the living room. The sliding doors for the master bedroom threw us a bit, but it turned out to be no big deal. We loved sitting on the balcony and watching the waves. So relaxing. The kitchen was amazingly well stocked. If you need it, it is there! Add your own food and you are all set. We loved the washer and dryer in the unit. So nice to have clean and dry clothes and towels every day (although there are plenty of extra towels available in the closets.) The beds and linens were top notch. Loved having all the soap products provided, too.

We went to the beach every day and found the crowds to be minimal. The sand was warm and soft. Very low on the seaweed and we only saw a couple of tiny jellyfish. The best part was the SHORT walk from the condo to the sand. So close! The pool was a bonus, too. Nice when the baby wanted to swim, but we didn’t want to all go back to the beach. Daughter and granddaughter spent one day at Schlitterbahn and enjoyed it a great deal. Discount tickets are available where you check into the Condo parking lot. Who doesn't like to save money!?!?

We ate at Pier 19 and highly recommend it. Also Gabriella’s and Wanna Wanna. They cater to the tourists and make you feel like an islander. If you have time, stop by Clayton’s for a drink.

The Original Dolphin Watch Tour was a hit! Very intimate, inexpensive, relaxing and fun. 2 other fun attractions: The Turtle Sanctuary (granddaughter loved it) and driving north on the island and seeing the “dunes”. It feels like you are on a different planet. Also, the sea shells up there are plentiful.

Becky is a wonderful host, and her place is the best we have stayed at. We would recommend her place to anyone, and we look forward to going back.
