About Nora Davis

Although we, Nora and Sheldon Davis live inland, full-time, about a hour to the west, we come to South Padre Island often.

We love our Island home and we are happy to share it with others. It is important to us that you feel comfortable in our beachfront home.

As the owners, naturally, our goal is to make your visit with us as best as it can be!

Nora Davis purchased this condo in 2001

Why Nora Davis chose South Padre Island

The VIEW was the reason we chose to buy Saida III unit 1105. It doesn't take long to get a little sand between your toes, and you want to own a piece of paradise for yourself. And so, Saida.

What makes this condo unique

We bought this unit several years ago because we simply fell in love with the view.

And Saida Towers offers the best of resort living; swimming, tennis, poolside drink and snack bar, plenty of lounge chairs for relaxing, hot tubs, beach access, and did I mention the view.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had so much fun during our stay here. Everything was perfect. We even used the puzzle and played monopoly one night.

Thanks Again!

Great family spring vacation

  • 5 of 5

Nora and Sheldon's condo was perfect. It was clean, looked exactly like the pictures, easy to find and get to, and spacious. The kitchen was well stocked with plates, wine bottle opener, cups, etc. Beach towels and chairs were useful. The view of the sunrise every morning was priceless. Despite a few college kids in the building, there was no noticeable noise and we slept fine at night. The pools are well maintained and the beach is clean. Nora and Sheldon called and texted to make sure everything worked out will the check in. Nora responded to all my inquiries right away. Our favorite restaurants were Pier 19 (grouper was great), ceviche ceviche (ordered the original with fish and shrimp), cap n roys, and joe's oyster bar. Walmart is near (4 miles) for food etc. South Padre is very relaxing and similar to a Mexican beach town without the international hassles of customs, money exchange, and language barriers. The other benefit over Mexico is that the seafood is safe as are the fresh vegetables.

Owner's Response: Alexander: I am so pleased that you were able to use the wine bottle opener. That, of course is what it is there for. Also, I was pleased that the few college kids in the building that you noticed, were NOT noisy. Please know that if you ever are disturbed by noise, please call us. We have very nice security people who are very tactful at keeping other guests considerate of other. Please stay with us again, Alexander
