About Luis Torres

We are working professionals that live in the suburbs outside of Houston. We have one son and one daughter.

Luis Torres purchased this house in 2012

Why Luis Torres chose Texas Gulf Coast

Our family is from the Valley so it was only natural for us to purchase a place of our own in South Padre Island.

Las Ventanas is our home away from home. My family enjoys coming to the Island to relax and have a good time. When we can't make it to the Duplex, we love renting it out to people who also want to enjoy all that South Padre Island has to offer.

What makes this house unique

The South Padre Island is a great place to enjoy the brown sugar beaches and beautiful turquoise water. Our place has the amenities and seclusion for a great vacation. Its also fun to enjoy the many activities in near by Brownsville and Harlingen.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great time at your beach house at 106 e redsnapper. The place was clean and very comfortable. Hope to deal with you again.

The stay was nice and we enjoyed it

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed out stay. We had one mishap with the swimming pool pump flooding the lower unit but that was not the fault of the owner. It was handled promptly and repaired. One thing that would have been better is better cooking supplies. They were limited and not the best to cook in. My family and I would definitely stay again. It was nice to be able to rent both units and have my family all together

Owner's Response: Glad to know that you had a good time in SPI. I apologize for the issue with the pool pump. It was unforeseen issue but I am very happy that my property management team was able to address the issue quickly.

Great Place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time at this home, we rented the two units and we had more than enough room. We loved that it had its own pool so we could come chill there after a day at the beach. We also loved that everything was within walking distance. Would stay here again in a heart beat!!

The only thing we didn't like about our stay, was having to leave it and come back home!! ;-)

Great Deal for location and PRice

  • 5 of 5

we had a large family with grandparents and kids. Grandparents stayed downstairs...adults and kids upstairs. Great space and had everything we needed. Look forward to doing it again. No issues with property, amenities were great, process was easy and property management was responsive (one time we called).

Thank You.

Average property

  • 3 of 5

There is nothing special about tho property. It is behind a grocery store so can be noisy in the morning as deliveries are made.

The ac unit upstairs has a hard time maintaining temp but was still comfortable. The owner needs to give this place some TLC

There is a pool but the jacuzzi portion seems out of order

About a block and a half to the closest beach access

Basic utensils and cutlery

Upstairs dryer is extremely loud

Cannot stop up bathroom sink as the stopper is frozen

Only the upstairs has a dishwasher.

Dish tv and wifi internet access were good

Everyone agrees the best part is the pool on the property

Overall it's an average rental at a slightly above price point

Owner's Response: Sorry to hear that were not delighted with your stay in my vacation home. I do appreciate the feedback and I will address the items that are addressable. Most guest find the unit's proximity to the grocery store as a plus. Most guest find it convenient. I do want to point out that the pool does not have a Jacuzzi. This is clearly stated in the home description, rental agreement, and arrival information.

Great stay with the whole family

  • 4 of 5

We had a great stay for the week we spent there. House was easy to find and not too far from the beach access. We tried to use the air mattress one night, but one side aired up way more than the other, so it was not able to be used. The pans and spatulas could be updated. Making egg was a bit of a challenge as it would stick no matter how much nonstick spray we used. Other than those minor things we all had a great time. The pool was great for when we didn't want to make the walk to the beach during the day, and having a grill available was awesome. Definitely a good spot for a larger group.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review. The duplex is perfectly located in the entertainment district which is near restaurants, grocery store, and shopping. And of course, the beach is a short 5 minutes walk away.
