About Dianne MacKie

Our family lives in Austin, Texas and has been vacationing in South Padre Island Texas with friends and family for over 30 years. We have dreamed of owning our own vacation home and in November of 2013 that dream became a reality. After a complete remodel, our new home is anxiously awaiting the gathering of friends and family. Please join us!

Dianne MacKie purchased this condo in 2014

Why Dianne MacKie chose Texas Gulf Coast

We love Villa 102 because of it's charm. The location by the pool and spa is PERFECTION! The sound of the surf from the patio in the evenings, the cool breezes, the incredible quiet and the rustling of the palms - it just doesn't get any better than that! The complex is quiet, friendly and well maintained. The palm trees are spectacular, over 50 on our property alone, the most on the Island! Laying by the pool, or soaking in the hot tub and looking at the stars is pretty perfect! We LOVE South Padre Island, Texas.

A place far beyond our expectations.

  • 5 of 5

Dianne's Condo is absolutely beautiful. She has done an excellent job at making her home a little piece of paradise. It was cozy, comfortable, charming and we lacked for nothing. The décor was incredible. She thought of everything to make our stay a pleasant one, even down to the spices in the kitchen to cook with. She also had a binder filled with pamphlets for things to do, places to see, and restaurants to eat at. She even had the restaurants rated for different meals. Her personal touch made it a wonderful place to stay and we would highly recommend it. You wouldn't be disappointed at all. Hopefully if we ever have the opportunity to go back to the Island, Dianne's home would be our number one pick to stay at.

Exquisite property with short walk to Gulf Beach!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I and our 6 year old sub simply loved this immaculate and stunning property located within a very short walk to the Gulf beaches. We were also very close to eating places, grocery, and stripes gasoline and convenience store. We enjoyed the amenities and the only thing lacking was that our stay was during a time when Schlitterbahn was not open so next time we will book during a time when we can also enjoy the water park for our son's enjoyment. The wifi was very fast and the X-Box was a major hit with our 6 year old son. - I would recommend this property to anyone who is looking for gulf beaches, 5-star quality lodging and amenities.

Perfect girl's weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

If you are planning a trip to SPI, look no further...this upscale vacation home is perfect in every way! The owner is pleasant and easy to work with - and it's apparent that she's put her heart into each detail of this beach escape. Things that matter - soft luxurious sheets and towels, mattresses and pillows, dishware (and high quality acrylics for outdoors) kitchen supplies, etc - were of the best quality. The entire condo was perfectly cleaned and maintained. The patio and pool are great for lounging in the sun under the swaying palms. No need to concern yourself with packing beach towels or renting beach chairs/umbrellas as they are already there; that's great news for those traveling a long distance or flying. The patio, private BBQ grill and top of the line dining furniture, with granite tops are wonderful! And as another guest commented, the crème de la crème (cherry on top) are the automatic candles on the patio that come on at dusk - over the top! I'm convinced that no finer combinations of luxury and value on the Island. Thank you, Dianne, for sharing your lovely home. We'll be back!

A true get-away

  • 5 of 5

We visit South Padre Island every summer with our family and have stayed at several different condos over the years. This condo was by far the best and I don't believe we will feel the need to look any further when planning our next Padre get away. Dianne is very personable and puts a lot of care and energy into ensuring you enjoy your stay in her home away from home. The condo is quiet and comfortable and has all that you could ask for and more! My only regret was that we couldn't stay longer!

Our FAVORITE beach getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This is our absolute favorite condo! We love South Padre and refuse to stay anywhere else. It's truly our home away from home because they've thought of everything. We’re literally steps from the beach, with a gorgeous pool and hot tub, and short walk to all of our favorite restaurants and bars. We love to cook & grill and feel right at home on their private patio with fully equipped gas grill. Love the gourmet kitchen. I’m pretty sure we sleep better here than at our own home – the beds, pillows, linens and towels are perfect. I can’t say enough great things about our favorite condo. We’ve already booked two more weeks this year. Thanks J & D! Love your place.
