About Bill and Barb Bartell

Married for 30 years and three kids later, Bill and Barb have always enjoyed the beach. Our kids completely agree! It doesn't matter if we are relaxing in the sun, having a good meal, or participating in activities, we prefer to do it on a beach. The kids have varied interests and are much more active than mom or dad. South Padre offers something for each of us individually and one of our favorite places to make memories and establish traditions.

We enjoy spending time with our family and friends!

Bill and Barb Bartell purchased this condo in 2015

Why Bill and Barb Bartell chose South Padre Island

Barb and I first vacationed in South Padre in 1988, and we fell in love with this hidden gem. In 2013 we had a family vacation in South Padre, with some special friends who introduced us to the Tiki Condominium location, which was a dream come true. It was a combination of owners, staff, conditions of the complex, beachfront, and location near activities and restaurants that made our decision to own here easy.

We hope everyone who stays in our condo, whether for a few days or months, will leave with the same love for South Padre Island as we have.

What makes this condo unique

We enjoy the beautiful views of the beach and sounds of the ocean from our balcony. There's nothing quite like enjoying a morning coffee on the balcony watching the waves roll in before anyone else is up! Likewise, we have a perfect view of the fireworks offered at Claytons on Friday and Saturday nights (if we chose). We love having friends join us for this special experience. The beach is just steps away, and the option to enjoy one of our two tropical pools, makes this a relaxing and memorable vacation stay.

Perfect Get-A-Way

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. This condo is perfectly located on the north east side of the building which offers spectacular views of the ocean/fireworks but a bit more privacy than those condos beachfront. The unit has been completely remodeled, is well stocked, and beautifully decorated. Owners do a great job from booking to check out, we had all relevant information without search for it and as promised Bill checked in with us on the first day. We will certainly stay here again (if we don't purchase a place of our own 😀?) The weather was unseasonably cool during our stay but that didn't stop us from enjoying the Island and for those days we couldn't get out the balcony offered a perfect spot to enjoy the views.

Owner's Response: You are so right about the privacy and views from the balcony. That's one of my favorite spots in the early morning, watching the wildlife. I'm so glad you had a nice stay, and we hope to see you again.

Really nice and Quiet condo near the beach

  • 4 of 5

We highly recommend this unit. It's been redone including added insulation and hurricane glass sliding doors so it's really quiet. It's also very well stocked.

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time. The condo was great, nice and clean. Bill and Barb stayed in contact but were not intrusive. The property was well taken care of. All the staff were very friendly. The front desk ladies gave me some good insight on things to do and see. They said the place was packed that weekend but it did not seem busy to us. I do apologize for us accidentally breaking the coffee pot and a vase. Only thing I would ask is please stock a broom and dustpan in the condo! I would've liked to sweep up some sand (and the broken glass) that inevitably gets tracked inside. Thank y'all for the great accommodations, we're ready to go back!
