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! ~Verna

                                                                    Beautiful ocean front property

                                                                    Anna S.

                                                                    Beautiful view from the balcony and a convenient private access to the beach. Very clean condo and well stocked with everything you need for a wonderful weekend on South Padre!

                                                                    Small property with ideal location. Great view of the beach from bedroom and living room balconies.

                                                                    Mario G.

                                                                    We enjoyed our stay and considering there was a surge of spring breakers, parties, snd concerts, the condo was very quiet and relaxing. The weather was windy and cool; however, the heated pool and jacuzzi made up for it. I would have rated this 5 stars if the WiFi had worked during our stay. I contacted Verna about the problem, and although she replied promptly and offered to inform property management for resolution, no one came to attempt to remedy the problem during our entire stay.

                                                                    Owner's Response:

                                                                    We are glad you had a great time and appreciate the good review. As soon as we learned of the internet problem we supplied you with an alternate connection and password so that you did have internet. We did not have the faulty Spectrum modem exchanged until after your departure because we didn't want to interrupt your stay. We are sorry that you interpreted that as not fixing the problem. We are sorry for the inconvenience and hope you stay with us again in future.

                                                                    A perfect spot for relaxation

                                                                    Joanie H.

                                                                    This condo is great. You couldn't be any closer to the beach! The sound of the waves can be heard throughout the place and having 2 balcony's is a treat. Everything was clean, in good shape and as listed on the VRBO site. The bed was very comfortable. We used the pool and hot tub daily and walked and ran on the beach often as well. There were plenty of beach towels available. We walked to one local bar (Wanna Wanna) but otherwise cooked each night. We visited the Turtle Refuge program and found it educational and interesting. There is a small market about 1.5 blocks away and a grocery store about a mile away.

                                                                    If you are looking for a spacious space with fantastic views and the sound of the ocean, this is your place.

                                                                    A little old and out dated but looked like they are trying to update

                                                                    James A.

                                                                    Great place right on the water. Few things where not working in the unit but Verna the property manager was super fast to get these things taken care of and we injoyed our stay.

                                                                    Relaxing to the extreme

                                                                    janice f.

                                                                    4 of us had a wonderful time at the condo. The beach was nearly pristine and just a very short walk from the condo. The condo was well appointed and met all of our needs. Will definitely be back.

                                                                    Bad Weather, Good Stay

                                                                    Doug L.gormin, TX

                                                                    Second time to stay here. The condo is in good condition and the pictures you see are accurate. Throwing a baseball to the water from your balcony wouldn't be a real challenge. Two very minor maintenance issues, but the staff is on top of it and it will be repaired in a timely manner.

                                                                    A winter storm blew in our second day (December 6th) with light rain and lows in the 40's. Very unusual for this far south. We were certainly glad the property was this well maintained, considering we were stuck inside watching movies and relaxing.

                                                                    We will be back!

Don't forget Schlitterbahn's water park for the kids. The Crab Races (FREE!) at the Isla Grand's Quarterdeck on Wednesday nights are positively hilarious! Super events to try to aim for are Sand Castle Days or Port Isabel's Shrimp Cook Off.
