My wife and I are both educators, we have two daughters, three dogs, a parrot, and a fish. We love to spend as much time as possible at the beach.

DAN HIRST purchased this condo in 2012

great location

  • 2 of 5

Place is nice, great location right on the beach the pool area is clean and room has a good view. i give it two stars for the reason that It says it sleeps 4 but i would say it fits two comfortably.

My husband and I stayed for Easter weekend. It was a good price, it stated it had a queen bed, but it was only two twin beds that can be moved together, which was not possible so my husband took one twin bed and i took the other. There was a guard stationed there all weekend, and wrist bands for the property were not provided to us so it became a little annoying to have to explain to the guard that we were staying there and had no wristbands. Great place to stay for two friends but not a couple. Walking distance to Wanna Wanna and Claytons!

Owner's Response: Couple went to the wrong building, wrong parking lot. They also couldn't pull up one side of the trundle bed. We did forget the wrist bands. Sorry, they were disappointed!

Fun at South Padre Beach Florence 1

  • 4 of 5

We had a Great time at this condo on South Padre Beach. Location was great, View was Great and the beach was great. Beach was very accessible, however the condo was very private. We enjoyed our time very much. A few small things could be improved, but it did not disappoint.

Price friendly quiet beach condo!

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived, everything looked exactly as expected! The condo was much bigger than I expected! The balcony has a good view of the beach, which I enjoyed my coffee on in the mornings and my cocktails in the evening. It was very quiet, you would've never known we had neighbors in the building. I had to contact the owner about the pool code, he was the nicest guy about it, even though I was calling a little late in the evening. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a quiet and romantic or just a fun quick beach getaway. We loved it and can't wait to rent this little gem again!

On the beach- what more do you need?

  • 5 of 5

This property was amazing, and the owner is one of the nicest people I have ever met. It's a bummer that we couldn't stay the whole week, due to an emergency on the property. The owner was responsive and kind. Too bad VRBO wasn't-- rude, bureaucratic, and money grubbing are words that come to mind. A worthless confidence guarantee. Will rent direct from the owner next time.

Beachfront & Affordable

  • 4 of 5

We didn't go to SPI to spend a lot a time in the room, so this rental was a great place to be able to walk right onto the beach. It's a basic efficiency, but it's clean and had all we needed for our short stay. Fully stocked kitchenette with full size fridge has all appliances including a hot plate. Pull-out trundle bed made it comfortable for 2 to sleep and roll away during the day for more room to walk around. Would definitely book here again.

Beautiful, Quiet Efficiency right on the beach!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in the Condo in April and early May, and thoroughly enjoyed it. All the appliances are in good working order, and the A/C unit was more than sufficient to keep the room cool during my stay. The condo was clean, including the towels and linens, and the kitchen was well supplied. I was combining a writing project with vacation time, and the location of the Condo was ideal for long walks on the beach, quick trips to the hot tub, short walks to Breakfast (would recommend "Ted's" just a block north on Padre Blvd.), and occasional evenings dining out. Prospective renters might want to bring an extra lamp or two (which I did, especially for bedtime reading), since the lighting is fairly dim as well as a larger coffee maker if you drink more than 2-3 cups. This is an efficiency so you will be cozy and need to organize your space. My wife spent part of the time with me, and we made out just fine. The owners are very friendly and return calls immediately. If you're looking for a safe, no hassle, comfortable beach escape. This is it!
