Luis Torres purchased this House in 2012
Why Luis Torres chose South Padre Island
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.

Great property for family trip
We rented this property for a family vacation over Thanksgiving. It was very clean and the location was great. We had some trouble with the thermostat but the property manager came over to help us in less than 10 minutes and there were no further significant problems. The shower door in the master bathroom sticks a bit. Nice big kitchen, plenty of cabinets. Really enjoyed our stay, thank you.
Really needs updated. Need new mattress pads, I wish it was decorated more beachy / fun looking , the spare rooms could use new bedspreads they were old and worn.. masters bed was fine except for pad needs replaced but bed was very comfortable..need to clean better, they need to replace the bakeware, pots & pans.the vents Need cleaned out.sand was blowing out all over when it kicked on....very noisy with the truck delivery next door, railing on deck needs repaired..and they need to spray for bugs..(.we saw a few,my husband sprayed and that took care of them) but those places should have professional sprayed once a month.pool was cold, but clean...need more chairs at pool area.small master bath, lots of towels available.. convenient location for walking to shops,and restaurant, ,beach, and bay watching...He needs an outside faucet and hose would be nice too. The owner was very nice and helpful when a problem arose..
Thank you for your feedback. I strive to improve my property to give my guest the best experience. Much of the feedback has been addressed. The living room furnishing in the unit are new as of Feb. 2019. The kitchen cutlery is replaced frequently to meet guest needs. I also utilize a professional pet control company to address bugs and a professional property management team to clean and maintain the property. The unit is conveniently located near the grocery store which many guest value.
Beachfront like view
Although not on the beach, the view out of the front porch window was of palm trees and a wooden railing like the one you would find on a beachfront cottage. Even on not so good days, the view out that window was wonderful. The unit was clean and has a large open-concept area. The main bedroom was large with nice size closet. Our grandchildren loved the bunk beds in one of the other bedrooms. There are many good restaurants within walking distance, including Louie's Backyard. A very short walk down the block and you are at one of two beach accesses. The front of the unit faced the south, so even on days when there was a cool wind out of the north, you could still sit out on the balcony and soak in the warm sun. The kitchen could have had a few appliances, like a hand held mixer and a crockpot, but was adequate in all other aspects. More towel drying space is needed in the main bath if you have more than two guests. All in all, the unit was great in my view. My guests remarked "this is great" when entering the upstairs duplex for the first time. Mr. Torres was always available by phone or text if we had questions or concerns. The property manager was also quick to respond to any of our needs. Would I stay there again? I have already booked for next year. GREAT PLACE
Glad you enjoyed your stay.
The rental was perfect for our stay. Close to the beach and right behind a grocery store, which was convenient. Rental was clean and had everything we needed. I would stay again.
Stayed for a month.
Great location. Spacious. Clean. Had laundry. Loved the front porch.
Glad you enjoyed the unit.
