Heidi's Condo property South Padre

  • 4 of 5

Nice. Kitchen dishes and pots/pans stocked. Close to pool and beach access within 5 minute walk through the condos. There were a few problems that had to be fixed but they came right away to fix the problems. The only problem we had was the wifi wasn't connecting to our phones and when it did, it didn't last for long. Beautiful and tropical around the condo. Excellent for pictures. Looks nicer inside than the pictures posted.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the kind words- Yes, this condo is beautiful. We remodeled last year. We love that the pool is close by and this condo is large and on the first floor. I am glad that the front desk was able to help you with WIFI they have helped me with it in the past.

Tiki Condo

  • 5 of 5

Our group stayed here the last week of March and had a wonderful time!! We were provided with everything we needed to cook meals, and sleep comfortably. The check in/check out process was very simple and Heidi as well was quick to respond with any questions! The beach is only a few steps outside of the resort , and is very close to Clayton's as well which was a fun spot for us to visit. Overall we had no issues staying in our condo at all, and were very satisfied. We would certainly rent here again!!

Great Condo!!!

  • 4 of 5

The condo was very spacious and clean!! We loved watching the fireworks from the patio every night. The landscaping was beautiful and the two swimming pools were a good escape from the beach. We will be looking to spend many more family vacations at the Tiki!!!!

Tiki Escape

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying here this weekend. It is a super short walking distance to the beach. The condo is well kept and very roomy! Everything was perfect. Yes Claytons is close by and there is music but you really cannot hear it at night. The front desk staff was friendly and the pool areas are a great size. I will book again!

August 2015

  • 4 of 5

Beach was awesome, water and sand was clean, no trash and water was clear every day. The weather was very nice, upper 80s and lower 90s each day, sunny. It rained the morning we left but other than that, perfect outside beach weather.

The condo was average. It's older but can't blame the owner for this bit but it was kind of dirty when we arrived. There was still sand in places on the floor and some hair in the tubs, along with a few other smudges that could of been wiped up off counters, etc. The owner should make sure whoever is cleaning the condo, they need to do a better job before the next people renting arrive. More rugs would of been nice around the condo.

The humidifier was loud and seemed to pump out more hot air so we were fine just turning it off during our visit. It was also completely full when we arrived, had to dump the water out immediately. The condo seemed to lack a few kitchen items that would of made the visit more pleasurable (more plates, utensils, cups, etc), especially for those people who don't plan to eat out every meal. We ended up buying paper plates and plastic cups.

The master bedroom mattress was old and needs to be replaced. It was not that comfortable and it was really loud when slightly moving or changing positions. One TV had a broken remote, very hard to turn on and control TV for the kids.

The worst part (Not the owners fault) but the Tiki requirements for wrist bands was annoying. Not once were we ever checked and it would be just as easy to create a badge card to present to anyone who's asking, etc. The band you could not take off and if you lost it they stated it would cost $35 for replacement. To me, that's a little extreme to make people wear what looks like a bar wrist access band their whole vacation.

The weekend fireworks were a plus but on Saturday the bar was very very loud with awful rave type music with a DJ that only seemed to know two phrases. "Oh yeah" and "Are you ready now" It was mostly the bass you could hear. I'm sure everyone hears it differently but when it's just the low bass beat you hear, it can drive some people insane.

Overall though, we went to relax and play on the beach and it was awesome. But if your wanting to lounge around the pool and the condo, there's probably better places unless you plan to eat out every night and don't mind the weekend party people at Claytons Beach Bar Venue next door while sleeping on lumpy old mattresses.

Owner's Response: Hello I am glad you enjoyed my condo. The wrist bands are for safety around the condo. This condo is very private. I am glad you were able to enjoy the free fireworks at claytons. The humidifier needed to be on at all times to keep the humidity out of the condo. I am not sure who you are but I never rented to a Drew B. Maybe you are talking about a different condo. Thanks Heidi

Clean and roomy

  • 3 of 5

This 2 bedroom condo was clean and roomy and relatively close to the beach. The Tiki had beautifully landscaped their property with beautiful plants and trees. The downsides: The swimming pools (2 of them) are small and no shaded areas. We were required to wear a wrist band for Tiki identification - all week long. Also, no towel exchange service by Tiki because our condo was privately owned. The laundry machines were $2 per load and $1.75 for each dryer load. When a large family stays for a week, I recommend bringing lots of quarters or lots of clothes!

Owner's Response: Hello Beth Thanks for your kind response. We love our condo!!! It is great relaxing and spacious! Also- front row seats while watching the fire works on the weekends. Yes, we do have a towel exchange. Next time contact me and we could have that set up for you. Also, I was delighted to hear that the tiki is enforcing wristbands while being on the property. I am sure it was not desired by you or your family but it is for the safety of everyone. Thanks Heidi
