About Owner/Property Manager Peggy Pichelman

My husband and I like the beautiful beach. First thing in the morning nothing beats watching the sun come up over the ocean when we're drinking coffe on the patio.

When we have the kids over we can walk in and out of the Condo from the beach for snacks, drinks, and breaks. We can even watch the kids fron the patio as they play on the beach.

Owner/Property Manager Peggy Pichelman purchased this condo in 2009

Why Owner/Property Manager Peggy Pichelman chose Texas Gulf Coast

We had a wonderful stay. Love being on the first floor with walk out t the beach.

  • 5 of 5

Property was in good condition. Pools were clean and people on property friendly and courteous. There were 2 adults, 2 kids age 7&9 and one dog and the unit was a good size for us. Kitchen had all the utinsels and dishes and cookware one needs. Sicissors would have been a useful addition. But that wS the only thing I missed. The kitchen is small - really only one at a time fit. But that didn't bother us. The unit was novel furnished. Felt upscale. Sheets and pillow cases were soft and fresh. A must for me.

The patio opens right out to where the shower station is. That was fine for us but if you are envisioning privacy on the patio - this unit is not for you. Great view of the ocean. Noise was never a problem. We could walk to Claytons to eat. Right accreditation as from Turtles Inc. Great location for us.

I really appreciated the beach chairs available in the unit.

This unit might get crowded with teenage kids. But it was great for us.

We plan to return again next year. The beach access was well worth the cost of the unit.

Beachfront View

  • 5 of 5

This was the 3rd time I have stayed at the 2 condos Peggy owns at the Tiki and every time has been great. I have had to revise dates a couple of times and the owner has always been easy to deal with. The condos are nicely decorated and well kept but the main reason I stay here is the proximity to the beach and the view from the condos. If your reasons for going to South Padre are something other than the beach you can find less expensive and nicer condos. But if you go to spend time on the beach its hard to beat the front row at the Tiki. The complex is older but very well kept and quiet. The tropical landscaping is lush and the pool in nice but the beach is fantastic.

Our stay was wonderful again this year. Ground floor, right on the beach. Manager lives in the complex and keeps the apartment very clean. Looking forward to staying here again on our next beach vacation.

Another great stay at the Tiki!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd stay at the Tiki. The beachfront condo is wonderful. The extra bedroom was perfect for our 11 year old son. The condo is updated and equipped with all you need. There are even beach chairs, umbrella, and cooler. Condo was very convenient to run in from beach and refill drinks and grab a snack - we didn't even have to take a cooler to the beach - we will be back!! Thanks Peggy.

Nice, but overpriced.

  • 3 of 5

Recently stayed three nights here. The owner and her help were very quick to respond and helpful. The location is accurate as far as being literally on top of the beach. Unfortunately, that part of the beach is probably the most crowded on the island. Being that the condo is on the first floor, I was unable to leave the curtains open and have a view of the beach, due to the fact that there were literally hundreds of people on the beach right outside. That might not bother some, but people being able to look inside the room at us was not cool. The massive beach bar (club), Claytons, is only a couple hundred yards down the beach. Cool for some, but be prepared to listen to whatever music they are blaring all night long(yes you can hear it from inside). My biggest complaint was the price tag. I will NEVER book anything through vrbo again. VRBO made me take away the specific numbers concerning the price and fees, but basically be prepared for taxes and fees to be almost $300 more than what the cost would be when adding up the room charge that it shows automatically when you look at the room. Like I said, simply not worth the price. The main reason I wanted a condo was to avoid the big hotel/resort atmosphere. Failed. The Tiki is a resort, and you are treated as such. Had to check in and get wristbands that we were instructed to never take off the entire four days on property. Not kidding. Also given a parking pass, which turned out to be useless. We were not once able to park anywhere near our condo due to all the cars parked for the massive beach party going on. They have signs up for towing, but at one point only about half the cars parked in the condo residents spaces had a parking pass. Maybe the condo would be nice during the off season, when there aren't a thousand people outside your door, but even then, it's simply overpriced. This was no different than staying in a hotel, other than it being better decorated and having more supplies. Also, one of the extra charges was a cleaning fee. Ok, but if I'm paying money to have someone clean, why are there signs in the condo that say to take all your trash out to the dumpster area and clean all your dishes before you leave? I would have preferred to clean it up myself and save the extra money, but I shouldn't have to pay for a cleaning service, AND clean it up before I leave.

Owner's Response: I'm sorry your stay on the beach was not everything you wanted it to be. Most renters love the ability to walk right out on to the beach from the condo. Week ends are busy on the beach I have to agree. Peggy Pichelman

Convenient, well maintained property

  • 5 of 5

This is my second stay at this owner's properties and it certainly met my expectations set by their other great property. This place is right on the beach, you can not get closer! Refilling drinks, grabbing a snack, more sunscreen, etc. was super convenient. Enhancing our stay, was a beach bar with live music, dancing and bar food located next door, most easily accessible by a short beach walk. I've stayed at other properties in South Padre and this one cannot be beat!

Car: recommended

The biggest attraction of South Padre Island are of course its beaches. The beach stretches for miles and all along the beach people sunbathe, relax and watch dolphins and pelicans. The more ambitious have fun shore fishing and kite surfing.

Many people just stroll the beach and look for seashells to take home. No problem strolling the beach here just walk out the patio door and you are about 10 steps to the beach.
