About Consuelo and Salvador Espino

Salvador and I are both managers for this property. I was born and educated in Kingsville and until I retired, I was a homemaking teacher and Texas School Counselor for 35 years-working in South San in San Antonio, Dallas, Houston, Galena Park, Kingsville, and Brooks County. After I retired, I continued helping families and kids, working with Texas Department of Family and Protective Services, CPS . Salvador still works Kingsville ISD in maintainence in the evenings. He and I work and play well together on this property. We both love living at Baffin Bay and enjoy sharing our little piece of paradise.

Consuelo and Salvador Espino purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Consuelo and Salvador Espino chose Riviera

While working in San Antonio, Dallas, Houston, I always knew that I would come home to retire and Baffin Bay was my family's favorite place to play when I was young. This was the only place I would even consider buying for an enjoyable retirement.

What makes this cottage unique

This property has a way of allowing purposefulness through the fishing and crabing, creativity and self expression through the flowering plants and trees. Self reliance through the vegetable garden and fruit trees. Love of life through the goats and fish in the pond and the multitude of beautiful birds. We both stay healthy and connected to the community by walking everyday. Salvador walks our Lab/Rotty/Ridgeback in the mornings and I usually walk to the Leo Kaufer Park in late afternoon.

Loved the house.

Clean and well cared for.

Fishing wasn't great because of cold temperatures.

Close walk to a beach.

Nice stay

  • 4 of 5

Thank you Consuelo and Salvador!

We enjoyed the stay very much. The house is not new any more and wifi connection did not work (but Claudia and I are happy as kids had to do other stuff than being in internet all time....).

The fishing pier is the best. I brought my boat and did not use it a single time as the pier was so great. We rested and had a good time.

Thank you again!
