About Verna

Jeff & I went on a vacation to Texas in 2005 to research the idea of moving from the Midwest cold winters to the Galveston-Houston area. We flew to San Antonio and rented a car to make a leisurely drive up the coast from South Padre Island. We made it to Corpus Christi and turned back! South Padre Island had hooked us! The water was bluer and the feel was right. South Padre Island welcomed us with its beauty and warm local charm.

In 2007 we moved to Kingsville, Texas. A very cool place but not 'the valley' and not the island. In 2008 we moved to McAllen, Texas -- getting closer! Finally, in 2011 we found our ideal property on South Padre Island. Special thanks goes to Shirley Donahue at Sand Dollar Realty for taking us all over the island several years to look at properties!

We love the island and our property. We believe you will too! After all, Life is better on the Beach!

Clean, comfortable and convenient. We will definitely plan to rent again in the early summer

  • 5 of 5

We took our grandchildren to SPI to see the ocean for the first time they enjoyed playing on the beach. The property is so convenient right on the beach. It was awesome to wake up to the beautiful sunrise every morning. They are making plans to come back next summer and stay long

Beautiful beachfront view, great location close to restaurants

  • 3 of 5

Loved the location and being right on the beach, pool was nice. Hot tub was not clean. If you have a truck or large SUV, parking is difficult inside the parking garage. Condo was good. Decor was cute, beds comfy and liked 2 bed/2 bath plus washer/dryer was BIG plus. A few issues we had were just overall cleanliness. Dirty towels were hanging behind bathroom door when we got there so we washed them. Bathrooms were not cleaned well, hair all over tubs and in drains. Most disgusting was the diswasher. There was an odor in the kitchen when we got there. Opened dishwasher and food was in the bottom from previous guests. I ran the washer on quick wash to see if that would help. I never used it again. Loved that there was coffee pot and blender available. Also, thankful for the beach chairs, umbrella, boogie boards, & beach towels. We had everything we needed for fun times on the beach. Wifi was a plus! Overall, would stay here again if cleaning is better next time.

Owner's Response: We love all of the great comments you had. We were disappointed that the condo had mistakes in the housekeeping department. We rarely have problems with their service. They are very diligent and would have came promptly to fix their mistakes had you let us know. I just called them and alerted them and they are on their way to fix the dishwasher. We are glad you enjoyed everything else and had a great time.

Super nice condo!

  • 5 of 5

So nice to be right at the beach, not 20 floors up! That in itself makes it worth it! But all the extras provided was the icing on the cake! You think you packed everything, don't worry, they thought of everything you forgot! !!

Comfy condo with a beautiful view!

  • 4 of 5

This condo made our first visit to South Padre Island a very special and memorable time. It was very comfortable, clean, and with lots of amenities. We really enjoyed the decor, the comfortable beds, and the amazing view! There were some minor issues with the glitchy internet service, flimsy towel holder, and the bathroom wall that needed to be refinished. With that mentioned, the place is charming and we do plan on returning.

Nice condo, fun stay, excellent service!

  • 5 of 5

We have been spending a week in South Padre every Summer for many years. We like staying in a relatively small complex to beat the crowds, and so our walk to/from the beach and pool is easy and short. Florence II is an excellent complex that suits our needs perfectly. This year we stayed in Florence II, room 402B. It is a cheerful condo with two decks that overlook the ocean - one from the living room and one from the master bedroom. It was nicely furnished and the recently remodeled bathrooms were beautiful! We ran into a few small issues while we were there - but the owners responded quickly and resolved everything to our satisfaction. They were great to work with, and to communicate with - and I think that is extremely important to make a vacation as comfortable as possible.

The unit has a small kitchen that is a bit outdated, but I think they will be updating it soon. The living room seating area is kind of small - only a small couch and a wicker chair. Not a lot of room to spread out and lounge. But, luckily, our weather was great and we didn't spend very much time in front of the TV. We were too busy at the beach!

This is the only unit we've ever stayed in that has a washer/dryer in it - and that was really nice! Next time we'll pack less stuff because it's so easy to wash/dry your clothes and use them again!

As far as the complex goes - we love staying there for the reasons I listed above. The only problems we had with it this year were that the Hot Tub was too too hot - hopefully that will be fixed soon. And, the elevator ride is also a bit hot and uncomfortable. It's only a short elevator ride though, so I'd take that any day over some of the really long and crowded elevator rides at the Inverness complex next door!

We really appreciated how kind and helpful Verna and Jeff were. You will be pleased with your visit to Padre if you stay here!
