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 a comfortable queen size bed and futon in the living room. 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.
My son and I came down from Houston for a quick surf trip. We've stayed on the Island many times but wanted a place away from the bustle of tourists. This place was perfect. Very comfortable and clean. It has a retro south-of-the-border feel with a beautiful pool and garden. Look forward to coming back!
We were down for mixed bussiness and pleasure. Was a less expensive and more private place to stay than a big hotel. We enjoyed it.
Absolutely charming from the historical building to the mid-century decor integrated with taverna style Mexican pottery and tiles! Absolutely beautiful and very clean. This little place is a true gem and a great location. It is close to the bridge going to the island as well as near many restaurants and bars. If you want to enjoy the beautiful beaches of S. Padre but don't want to be in the mix of wild party land then this is your sanctuary! Close enough to get wild and far enough to get away! We will definitely be back and I am making plans to cook in the wood fired oven and mix up a batch of margaritas to sit poolside!! See you next year!
We so needed some r & r and we found it with your home and your family. You made us feel so at peace and part of the family and we very much appreciate your treatment of us. We were in apt. #4 and it was gorgeous. Such a resort feel and we were able to relax and get some much needed rest. We look forward to coming back. Thanks again for your wonderful hospitality.

Stunning property clean and well cared for. We will be back and next time we will be scheduling a whole day to just play in the amazing pool.
This place is stinkin' cute. Ike & Courtney have done a phenomenal job renovating this historical apartment/hotel building. It is a perfect retreat to come to after activities on the island. Wonderful back courtyard right outside your back door where you can lounge, jump in the pool or grill your dinner. Lots of plants, palm trees and personal touches all over the property. The owners are on the property and responsive to any questions or problems. It's about a 2 minute drive to the causeway, the lighthouse and other places you might want to explore. We are an older couple so apprecited having a quiet retreat in the late afternoons and evenings. Next time we hope to stay longer!
