Alta Vista is a beautifully restored historical property built in 1931. Constructed of timber, masonry and stucco, it is similar to many buildings in Old Mexico from that time period with it's Colonial style, arched entries, private covered porches and courtyard.
Our family purchased the property in 2003 which had been neglected for many years and began a complete authentic restoration. The structure has been completely renovated and most of the original features preserved including the beautiful oak flooring, exterior masonry and doors.
The property has been modernized to with central air conditioning, on-demand hot water, satellite TV, WI-FI internet and swimming pool.
The kitchens and bathrooms feature beautiful talavera tile and saltillo tile floors which we brought with us from trips to Central Mexico.
This Apartment has two comfortable double beds and all bed tops are freshly laundered before your arrival. You have the convenience of a furnished kitchen.
Outside you will find lush tropical gardens, the courtyard swimming pool, lounge chairs and umbrellas. There is an outside kitchen with a wood burning churrascaria style barbecue, gas grill, fish fryer and bar.
There is a cool breezeway with rocking chairs and a hammock for relaxing. On cool evenings you can enjoy the warm glow of an outdoor fireplace by the pool. The private coin operated laundry is handy for those on extended stay.
We can offer suggestions for all types of activities, restaurants, directions and points of interest. We know Port Isabel, South Padre Island, and the Rio Grande Valley very well and gladly share our knowledge of the area to enhance your stay.
We had so much fun! This place is Awesome! We hope to come back next year, Thank you Thank you for everything! Just beautiful!
Rented this cute suite for an extended weekend to take my Grandkids to the beach and it was absolutely perfect! Courtney was great and made us feel at home. Highly recommend Alta Vista! We will be back!
My stay at the Alta Vista Apartment was very nice. The place does look very rustic, which adds to the vacation aspect of the stay. The property was also clean and well-maintained.
Courtney (the owner) was very sweet and very understand of certain hiccups occurred during the drive down to Port Isabel, which instantly made me glad that I chose this property for my stay on the coast. The only issue I had was that the internet was a bit slow and disconnected at times, which wasn't a big deal in my eyes.
I will definitely be staying here again if I decide to visit Port Isabel in the future, and I will also recommend it to any friend that does the same.
This was a great place to stay. As we were leaving we noticed the Texas Historical Commission plaque that stated this was the oldest apartment building in Port Isabel built in 1931. This place had everything we needed and was only a short drive to South Padre Island. The the pool was shaded which made it perfect to allow my kids to continue to play in the pool after a few hours at the beach.
This was a great place and I would love to come back!!!
Absolutely darling, authentic property. Amazing restoration. We will stay there again!
Only disappointment was the pool was not heated, it was hard to look at it for two months & not be able to use it !!! The outdoor kitchen was awesome! The grounds were kept beautifully !! The owners were gracious & fun to have around! So wonderful to be within walking distance to downtown! Quiet & private & clean !!! Thanks so very much for a wonderful winter retreat !!!!

Our 2 week vacation at Alta Vista was wonderful. We found the unit very quaint and extremely clean. The fact that you kept the spanish elements and overall look is so beautiful. The unit was equipped with everything we needed for our stay but unfortunately due to the weather we did have to buy blankets and left them for the unit. The only downside was that there was not a electrical plug in closer to the mirror in the bathroom for the hair dryer. Plugging it in on the opposite wall was a bit of a challenge because the cord was not long enough. We would have loved to spend time by the pool but it was too cold, but was extremely impressed with it and the groundwork. We enjoyed and loved our stay in the unit as well as Port Isabel and the island, and cannot wait to come back again.
Thank you for everything,
We also bought a larger coffee pot and left it for the unit
