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.

Awesome vacation

  • 5 of 5

The condo was excellent. It was very comfortable and quiet. Even though it was the end of spring break the area was not noisy. The pool was awesome. We spent most of the time at the beach. Very clean beaches. We will definitely return.

Beautiful place to spend some sun and surf days.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our month at this Tiki condo. It was clean, well decorated and the owners were great to deal with. It's a short walk to the beach and the pool and courtyard is like going to a tropical oasis. There were two small negatives, the microwave is located higher than normal and challenging for a shorter person to use and because it is first floor, the dunes partially obstruct the ocean view from the patio unless you are standing. All in all a great Padre Island getaway.

Steps to the beach, beautiful condo

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Tiki with our 2 children for a family reunion. We had several other family members staying at the same resort, and we all had a great time. However, this unit was particularly nice, as it was in the building closest to the beach, on the ground floor, and gorgeous! The unit was beautifully decorated, nicely updated, and very private. The beach access is extremely easy, with no streets to cross. The owners were very quick to respond, and easy to work with. The Murphy bed in the front room was comfortable and easy to manipulate. The patio is narrow, and the dark bushes off of the patio (presumably because it faces the parking lot?) made that area a little bit uninviting, so we mostly just used it as a place to put our beach things, but that meant we spent more time on the actual beach! There are two pools at the property, one for each building, and both were quite nice. They can get crowded, however, so pick your pool times accordingly (we had several teenagers in our party, so they liked the busier times).

As a whole, the property was busy, but there were tons of families there. The beach would get crowded at times, as expected, but there was still always plenty of room for us to play in the sand or swim, and all 20 members of our group had room to sit together.

Just as a couple of notes, there are a few board games and puzzles in the condo, but no beach toys or other beach accessories that we could find - the owners didn't advertise as such, but we have become a little spoiled staying at other rental properties in the past. Check-in at the office was a bit hectic, and took longer than expected (just because they were busy - we arrived on a Sunday), but wasn't an issue overall. DO NOT BRING GLASS ON THE BEACH. Signs are posted at multiple places in the town itself, but there is nothing in the resort info packet or in the unit itself about this, and if you enter the beach through the private Tiki access gate, there are no posted signs about beach rules. There were multiple people with glass on the beach who got caught by the beach patrol while we were there. Should be common sense, but the fine is hefty, and has to be paid in person, so that is not what you want to be doing on your vacation!

We would stay here again in a heartbeat! Thank you so much for sharing your condo with us!
