About Owner/Property Manager Peggy Pichelman

Peggy and Frank enjoy the smell, feel and touch of the ocean.

Owner/Property Manager Peggy Pichelman purchased this condo in 2005

Why Owner/Property Manager Peggy Pichelman chose Texas Gulf Coast

We couldn't find a closer place to the ocean than the condo we purchased.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The Condo was even better than the site said it was. The ocean view from the deck was unbelievable.

The location on the beach is ideal. It's clean, well-maintained, and equipped w/ nearly everything one needs in the kitchen! We arrived after hours and the property manager was very helpful in getting us settled in, connecting w/ wi-fi, making sure our car wouldn't be towed, etc. The property manager is extremely professional, helpful, and friendly, and all of our questions were answered promptly. The condo was even nicer than our two previous stays, as it had all the little extra touches: plenty of paper products, hotel-style soap/shampoo , updated bedding, even beach towels and chairs for us to use. The only drawback is the kid's room bunk-bed. The children commented that the mattresses are thin and rather uncomfortable, so might not be good for heavier or older guests. I would recommend this place to my friends and family but hope it's available when we need to escape to our "home-away-from-home!" Thank you for a lovely stay.

Very clean, well maintained and comfortable condo!!

GREAT CONDO!!! Steps from the beach...staff was friendly, check in was a breeze! This condo is as advertised. It is clean, well appointed and comfortable. Had a wonderful week long stay. Owner was very nice and easy to work with as well. This condo is a real value as it is literally on the Gulf side beach with wonderful sunrise view. I would definitely recommend this property for anyone traveling to South Padre! Thanks, Peggy!

Excellent condo

  • 4 of 5

We've stayed in South Padre many times over the years, and this is one of the nicest units we've ever rented. It's very updated and quiet. We expected a loud weekend, as it was the Labor Day holiday, but the unit was basically soundproof. That's a good thing because right next door was a rave-like concert/club/bar with extremely loud music all night. This was a little annoying because I like to sit on the balcony at night and enjoy the ocean sounds. but you can't hear a thing once you're inside, so it all worked out fine.

Also, there's a strange custom at the Tiki Condos for wearing a wrist band the entire time you're on the property to show that you're authorized to be there. I, personally, don't wear wrist bands because I'm not a 12 year old at a water park... and I sure as heck won't wear a wrist band out to dinner... So I just cut mine off. Nobody asked me any questions, and it wasn't an issue. But I thought it was odd. But that's my only real complaint.

Otherwise, it was a perfect location. It's directly on the beach (I don't think there's a way to be closer to the water at Padre). The condo was very clean, quiet, and updated. We will stay there again.

Love this place!!!

  • 5 of 5

I love this place! This is the second time me and my family have been here. Last year we were here and vowed we would return. I love sitting on the balcony and watching the sun rise over the ocean and watching the pelicans fish for breakfast. Everything you need is there-just unpack buy a few groceries and enjoy. Just be prepared to NOT want to leave!

The owner Peggy is very prompt in returning Emails and very easy to work with.

This place is a wonderful place to go and unwind and just enjoy. I will be returning next year!!

Thank you Peggy for a wonderful vacation!

Wonderful spacious condo with amazing views.

  • 5 of 5

The pictures do not do this condo justice. The master bedroom is large & spacious with your own access to the balcony. It also has plenty of closet & drawer space and awesome high ceilings. The living room/dining room combo were perfect for our family of 5. Kitchen & bath are newly remodeled. We brought our two girls ages 2 & 6 and the bunk bed room was perfect. The kitchen & bathroom were stocked with all your necessities. The complex has 2 pools & the people are extremely friendly. The grounds are beautifully kept. I do not have one negative comment regarding condo 332! It was just that great! As for the views they can NOT be beat. You have direct views of the ocean from your own large private balcony and the sunrises were stunning. The condo owner Peggy was quick to answer any correspondence we may have had & very pleasant to deal with. We will definitely be returning.

Great place for family and relaxation!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to South Padre and we couldn't have been more happy with the location of this condo. The layout of the condo was great and my daughters loved the bunk beds and having their privacy. It was nice to come and go from the beach to the room at any time. It was very convenient for our little one who needed her naps! We enjoyed the Turtle Rescue across the street and were able to enjoy front row seats to fireworks right on the beach. The only down fall was having to go up the stairs with broken foot, but other than that we will definitely come back! Thank you to the owners for such a great experience and for always returning my emails in a timely manner!--You helped make this a trip to remember.
