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!

Why Bill and Barb Bartell chose Texas Gulf Coast

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.

My family of 4 spent 5 nights at this condo! It was very comfortable, with plenty of room. The kitchen is very modern with the pleasures of home. The bed was great, and the location was awesome! We totally enjoyed our stay!

Owner's Response: Jay, The hurricane sliding doors keep most of the sound out of the condo, which makes it really nice when there's lots of activities at the beach. We are glad you enjoyed your stay. Bill and Barb

Kind of small property, packed with people.

  • 3 of 5

Grounds not maintained very well, area packed with families, crowded pool area, grass filled with stickers not very pet friendly! Condo starting to look run down, dirty, stained cabinets, appliances looking older, space kind of cluttered with big furniture. Bathroom sink area smelled, sulphur smells from drain.

Owner's Response: Aimee, I can't begin to tell you how surprised we were to read your review. Particularly because you've chosen to return to our condo multiple times. Had I known if there were any issues or concerns, I might have been able to address them during your stay. Barb and I pride ourselves in maintaining and upgrading our condo on a regular basis. We will be going to the island in the next few weeks, and Barb and I will have a critical eye to your concerns. Bill and Barb

Beautiful and just what I needed

  • 5 of 5

The condo is well set up and nicely decorated. The view from the balcony is every bit what the picture says, the sound of the ocean right there is so relaxing and access to the beach is just steps away. Bill and Barb were great to work with. I would recommend this place and I'm sure I'll be back.
