About Luis Torres

We are working professionals that live in the suburbs outside of Houston. We have one son and one daughter.

Luis Torres purchased this condo in 2011

Why Luis Torres chose Texas Gulf Coast

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 Puertas 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 condo, we love renting it out to people who also want to enjoy all that South Padre Island has to offer.

What makes this condo 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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Condo has nice furnishings, linens. Everything was clean and pool looked great. We could have used an iron and 2 wine glasses. (A lot of plastic drinking glasses). There was not to much to do with the high winds and cooler weather. Grocery store was near and a lot of nice eating places. We did some charter fishing and a dolphin tour along with any tour we could we could find. The upstairs condo was being remodeled so it was very noisy.

Great Mothers Day Week!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I love to stay here!!! It's quite, cozy, and family oriented!!! Very close to the beach access!! Would 100% recommend this condo to everybody!! The listing is exactly how it states!!! However, the ONLY problem that I had, was the condo needed to be swept and mopped. And there were two hand towels that were dirty. It had mud stains. But other than that, it was perfect!!! Thank you

Relaxing

  • 4 of 5

We had good experience. There were a couple issues when we arrived however, I contacted the owner of the condo and in no time, there was someone there to correct them. About the only complaint I would have are with the cooking utensils (knifes very dull and cooking pan handles about to fall off) other than those 2 things it was great! Location is great for easy access to the beach, private patio to relax on after returning from the beach was wonderful. The shared pool was very inviting as well.

Wonderful time

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here last year and enjoyed it so much that we came back this year. The condo is quiet and nicely furnished and only a two minute walk from the beach. There is a private patio and pool to enjoy also. We hope to make staying here an annual event!

GREAT

  • 4 of 5

Great location, pool was clean, area in general also,

beach was a very short walk, rooms were bigger than what it seemed in pics, and the Porch was the highlight!

could not give 5 due to cleaning crew for "inside" condo, needs to do better,

*could not get iron to work, light over stove is out, had to provide batteries for remotes to TV's..... nothing major, just for the next time... Would stay again.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the feedback. The condo is perfectly situated in the north part of the Island which is quiet and beautiful. The deficiencies highlighted are easily fixed and I have been communicated to the property management team. The check-in time for the condo is 4pm so early arrival can lead to a run in with the cleaning crew. Regardless, the cleaning crew is always polite and ensure the condo is clean for my guest.
