About Maria and Steve

We are a family of four from the North Texas area who love the beach. We had previously traveled to Florida for our beach vacations, but once we discovered the proximity and beauty of South Padre Island, we kept coming back! We enjoy visiting as often as we can get away!

Maria and Steve purchased this condo in 2011

Why Maria and Steve chose Texas Gulf Coast

We chose this condo because it is so close to the beach. Even with young children, it is easy to cross the two-lane street, and walk onto the beautiful sand.

What makes this condo unique

South Padre Island has the most beautiful beaches in Texas, and it is an easy drive from most anywhere in the state.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We love staying at Peter's place! So glad to call this our home away from home. Excellent location, super clean and Peter is a pleasure to work with. this was our second time to stay here and I am a loyal renter from now on! The pool is never crowded and we love the outdoor showers to clean off from the pool or beach. An umbrella and beach mat are provided for the beach that is a 2 minute walk away. Always sad to leave this place!

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Condo location is fantastic! Several restaurants within walking distance, beach is just a few steps away from the front door (love the fact you don't need a car to get there). IGA supermarket is just down the street, if you want to shop and save some $$ Walmart is on the mainland and so is HEB. Yummies has a fantastic breakfast!

Layout of condo is great, kitchen is well equipped with cooking tools, bowls, plates etc, washer/dryer, beach chairs and boogie boards. There is a hairdryer in the master bath and plenty of bath towels. You can "rent" wooden chairs at the beach for $30 a day, condo chairs are WAY more comfortable and worth carrying to the beach.

Owners are responsive to any questions you might have. Only bummer here was that all the 3 beds were rock hard, we aren't picky but we all woke with achy backs. Owner has said they will be replacing the mattresses. Would definitely stay here again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review and we were happy to hear you had a great trip. Thank you for bringing the mattresses to our attention. We are making plans to purchase new mattresses for the master and the two guest beds. Thank you again and we look forward to having you back.

Great place for vacation.

  • 5 of 5

The unit we stayed in had everythino we needed. It had a kitchen complete with plates, cups, pots, and pans. It was clean and spacious and even had some toys for the kid's to play with at the beach. The beach access was just across the street and the beach was clean and peaceful. Wonderful stay and great place!

Beautiful, well stocked condo steps to the beach

  • 5 of 5

My first impression when I walked in was "wow, this is more than I expected". Beautiful tall ceilings, fantastic kitchen. The kitchen is so well stocked with what you may need, there is even a waffle maker! Laundry was a big bonus. 3 flat screen tvs made sure no one was fighting when we had a cooler indoor day. 2 bathrooms is also a huge plus with kids. There is even beach chairs and boogie boards to use. Also a portable cooler on wheels to use at the beach, little things that you can't bring but could really use! They really did stock it well.

We didn't use the pool, was too busy in the ocean. The beach is fantastic and literally 1 minute walk to get there. I didn't even wear my shoes to the beach. You can walk for hours on that soft sand.

There is a lot to do on SPI, we went horse riding at "the Stables", went to the Sea turtle sanctuary, went for a boat cruise to see the dolphins. These were all very reasonably priced. Within 30 minutes to Brownsville you have a great zoo (Glady's Porter zoo). The boys in the family even went to the gun range in Brownsville. There is also a free bus that goes around SPI and over the bridge to Port Isabel (even goes to Walmart to get supplies).

I would most definitely stay here again if ever back to Texas. Check in and out is no problem and you have help if needed, just call and they'll help you out.

Thanks again Maria and Steve for a fantastic experience!

  • 5 of 5

We had a very pleasanr stay at this property. From the time we entered the condo we were impressed with cleaniness, everything well organized. Kitchen and kitchen utensils were ready to use.

The leniens, towels were clean. Also, the deposit was returned very next day once they verified the condition in which we returned the condo back.

This condo was just minute away from the beach.

The Perfect Place!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in South Padre Island and especially loved our choice in condo. We love south padre island and this was our first time staying in a condo. Don't know why we haven't done this sooner! The condo was perfect for our fall get away and the Phillips family were great in answering questions and working with our schedule. It is located in a perfect spot. Everything we needed was within walking distance. The beach and restaurants are close enough to walk to and the kitchen is large enough to stay in and cook. The condo has everything you need for your stay at the beach. I loved the layout. The kitchen is spacious, the bathrooms are ample size, and the bedrooms are very comfortable. The washer and dryer are necessities versus conveniences when traveling with little ones. It has everything you need and is well kept. I highly recommend staying here!! Overall SPI is a beautiful island with beautiful beaches and the condo is beautiful , clean, and close to everything not mention the owners who are great to work with. I can’t wait to go back!!!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review! We are so glad you enjoyed our condo and South Padre Island. Also, thank you for letting us know about the closet door on our balcony! We were happy to hear that it was fixed quickly. The island can make doors swell and shrink, causing issues with closing, but once we knew we can easily resolve! Please come back when you can and we will get you a returning guest discount.

One lot away from a beach access and right down the street from a favorite local restaurant, Blackbeard`s. Just North, a short walk on the beach or along Gulf Blvd., is the Wanna Wanna beach bar... great food and fun. The beach area just North of the property is one of the quietest and most pretty sections of South Padre Island beach... since it is mostly single family oceanfront homes in this stretch of the island. This condo is what is needed for a truly enjoyable vacation. Yes, this condo is pet-friendly.

Other Activities: Shopping, Boating, Shelling, Wildlife Viewing, Miniature Golf
