About Gil

We are Gil and Barb Morris, from Oakland, NJ, and we visited South Padre Island for the first time in the summer of 2007. We immediately fell in love with SPI and purchased our condo soon after. We have enjoyed many wonderful vacations in our unit since then. Here I'm pictured in front of a sand castle...Barb is behind the camera. No - I can't take credit for this work of art. It was created, along with dozens of other beautiful entires, as part of a sand art contest held one afternoon on the beach This was just one of our many memorable experiences on the island. Visit SPI and make memories of your own.

Gil purchased this condo in 2007

Why Gil chose Texas Gulf Coast

Our first visit to SPI was in May of 2007 and by August we were the happy owners of Inverness 504. Our little piece of paradise has given us so many carefree and happy memories. We may be professionals most of the year, but for the few weeks that we stay in our unit, the shoes come off, the bathing suits go on, and we're at home. As the locals say...'no worries.'

What makes this condo unique

By far the single, most unique benefit of Inverness 504 is being able to step outside on the the oversized balcony and watch the waves roll in. The gentle sound of the surf becomes almost hypnotic. There are few rental units on SPI that offer such incredibly close proximity to the ocean, yet with all the comforts of your own front 'porch.'

Nice condo in a rough building

  • 3 of 5

This is a tale of two contrasts. The owners have done a really nice job with this condo. There are a lot of nice upgrades and it's a very nice condo. Bed was comfortable, bath was great and kitchen fairly well outfitted. Unfortunately, the care of the building isn't nearly at this level. One of two elevators (the closest one of course) was broken the entire trip and the remaining elevator was in serious need of maintenance. Often we'd be stuck waiting 10-15 mins for an elevator. The building is dirty and not well maintained. Walls are cracked, everything needs paint and railings in stairs are a safety issue. It's clear that the property is very old and it is not aging gracefully. It's a real shame because the condo is really quite nice. If you're looking to stay at Inverness, I wouldn't hesitate to suggest this property. I would not however reccomend the Inverness. It's better days are behind it.

Owner's Response: Hi Scott, Thank you for the review. I'm sorry one of the elevators was out during your stay. I can sympathize with your frustration. The building is scheduled for major renovations starting in September and will be closed for eight months. All the balconies will be redone with new steel and concrete. All the walkways and balconies will be covered with new tile and railings. The entire building will be repainted. This project was overdue but I feel confident that when the building reopens next summer, not only will the inside of our unit look beautiful but the outside will as well. Please come back next summer and check it out! Thanks, Gil

Very comfortable. The view of the beach was breath taking. Best feature of the condo was the balcony

  • 5 of 5

Condo was well equipped with everything needed to make our stay comfortable. Only downfall was the pillows that were provided; very flat😟. All pillows provided were flat so doubling up did not help. Next time we will take our own.

Absolute Comfort!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at the property and we were just as happy as our first! The owners are so easy to communicate with and we booked our stay almost immediately upon request! Great communication.

The condo is very comfortable with anything you may need and the covered parking is a bonus.

Best patio in SPI for just relaxing and watching the sunrise!

We highly recommend and we will stay here again!

A home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

This property did not feel or look like a rental. It felt more like a friend allowed us to use their home on the beach while they were out of town. The unit is beautifully decorated and furnished including the balcony overlooking the beach. We enjoyed a great deal of time sitting and watching the beach and the gulf from the balcony. A wonderful experience we hope to repeat in the future!
