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.

Perfect for a family weekend getaway.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this property. It was clean and well-maintained. We had plenty of room for everyone and having a full kitchen was so much more convenient than eating out. There were no issues during our stay and the owner was great with providing information prior to our arrival. I would highly recommend this property to families with kids looking for a nice, affordable place to stay during a family getaway. Also, it is located next to a grocery store and just down the street from a public beach access.

Nice house, needs a little TLC.

  • 3 of 5

The house was pretty nice. The location is great, within walking distance from the beach. There was some issues with the up keep of the house, though. Some of the light fixtures on the bottom floor living area were out. The toilet paper holder in the first floor bathroom was broken. The refrigerator kept staying open, we had to move everything to the top floor fridge. The bunk beds on the bottom floor were very uncomfortable, the top bunk mattress felt like a spring only and no padding. The remote for the tv was not working properly, we couldn't pick what channel to watch other than the first channel listed on the guide when you paged thru. All in all, the house was nice, but like I said, with a little attention to detail, the house would get 5 stars.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your candid feedback. I will get this list to my property manager to address each item. I do ask guest to inspect the property at arrival and if they have any issues to contact me. My property management team is more than happy to address any issues during a guest's stay.

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.
