About Mario & Toni Villarreal

Family who enjoys the clear waters of South Padre and who love to get away from the big city life. And not to mention the outstanding Red and Trout fishing.

Mario & Toni Villarreal purchased this condo in 2012

Why Mario & Toni Villarreal chose Texas Gulf Coast

We love South Padre Island, it's the best beach in Texas. We purchased our first condo in 2010 and loved it so much that we decided to buy this one. This beachside condo has made our dream come true and we can't wait to retire on the island. Until that day, we hope everyone who stays in our condo will leave with the same love for South Padre Island as we do.

What makes this condo unique

We enjoy the beautiful views and sound of the ocean waves off our balcony. We wake up to the beautiful morning sunrise and quietness of the resort. The beach is just steps away and we know this place will bring us many good memories.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We were so excited when we walked in the front door of this condo. You would think you walked into a model home. This place had everything you need and more. The view from the balcony was outstanding, you can walk out the patio and sand on the beach in 15 second. That's how close it is...The owners were so nice, they gave us tips on where to eat and things to do. This went a long way since this was our first time to SPI. Without a doubt we will be back and spread the word to all our friends. Thank you Toni and Mario

Best vacation

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time I have stayed at a Villarreal's condo. I had the pleasure to stay in their upper condo a year ago. This new, clean condo was better than my imagination. I felt like I walked into a decor magazine with beautiful furniture and decorations. Everything was new and very comfortable. The kitchen was fully stocked for the cooking I did. This was my first time coming to South Padre during the winter, and it was amazing. I walked the warm beach every morning and witnessed God's glory with the rising sun, which was right off the balcony. It was in 80's almost every day. The balcony of the condo has a beautiful view of the beach and I ate all my meals on it. Who would have thought you could get a tan in January? The two pools were warm and refreshing. The other guest were very friendly and welcoming, who have been coming for several decades. They even said this condo was the nicest at the Tiki. I thought I was in paradise until reality hit and I was forced to go back home to work. To add to it, everyday I had a relaxing shower in the most beautiful shower I have seen. I did leave with new friends to see next year and a relax feeling that I have not felt in any past vacations. I didn't feel like I was at a hotel but a place of my own. And, I know that the Villarreal's want me to treat this as my home. I definitely recommend this condo and plan coming back this summer.

Great place for a relaxing vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 (two children under 6 years of age) really enjoyed our stay here. The location is great, and the condo was perfect for our needs. We definitely recommend staying here and will be staying here again in the future.

Steps from the Water

  • 5 of 5

This condo and Mario & Toni were wonderful. All I wanted was to be ACTUALLY steps from the water and not just the condo complex be "water front" like some places advertise. This place delivered. My husband kept commenting on how "homey" the condo felt with all the decor. The dehumidifier was a lifesaver. We loved being able to sit on the porch, drink our coffee in the morning and see the ocean. We would definitely stay here again!

Amazing Beachfront Experience

  • 5 of 5

This unit was immaculate and nicely updated. The condo itself is very well modernized, but it still most certainly has that "beach feel" with the decorations and overall energy...so the best of both worlds, in my opinion. The beach is 3 minutes walking distance, and the view from the patio to the beach is definitely accurate. Having Clayton's next door is nice because it's a great default go-to for a quick beverage, food, or live music...ALSO, they have a firework show around 9pm that you can see from the very large patio at Clayton's. We watched the show, and it's legit...twas very good.

Toni and Mario were easy to communicate with and very communicative. For someone (myself) who likes to plan very much in advance, having owners like Mario and Toni made this experience that much less stressful, which is what a beach vacation is intended to do, right? :)

One tip would be to ensure you bring cash with you as umbrella/chair rentals and taxi cabs all take cash only. I **highly** recommend renting the chairs and umbrella...we used them all days we were on the beach!

Overall, this was a tremendously relaxing experience, and it all started with the high quality condo and the courteous /prompt interactions with Toni and Mario. A+ in my book, and I'll be looking to book one of their units again in the future! :)
