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!

Comfy, Clean, and Relaxing. We love spending our vacation here!

  • 4 of 5

We have stayed in this unit for 2 years now, and we plan to come back again next year! We absolutely love the location - Florence II is a quiet, small complex - on a tame part of the beach - that is well-kept and convenient. Our kids love the pool and hot tub, and it's easy to get to the beach in a jiffy!

This unit is clean and comfortable, and is plenty big for 4 people. We love how the master bedroom has a beach view, because some others in the same complex look to the street instead - and that is not nearly as pleasant at night! We also love having a washer/dryer in the unit. Having clean towels and clothes, and going home with all clean items is priceless!

There were a few things that needed attention during our stay, but luckily, Verna is very responsive to requests and concerns. We appreciate that!

Thanks Verna - and see you next year!

Right on the beach. Beautiful sunrises. Great parking and really nice touches like beach chairs.

  • 5 of 5

The place was a little outdated but clean and comfortable. Nice and roomy for our needs. Amenities and access to beach are amazing. That's the true beauty of this condo. We are already making plans for next year!

Great Condo!

  • 5 of 5

My Mom and I stayed for a week and very much enjoyed the beautiful condo. Verna provided so many things I had not expected- beach towels, hairdryer in the master bath. Lots of blankets and pillows too. The location was perfect and we very much enjoyed the hot tub (for the building) every night. The condo had everything we needed and Verna was extremely responsive when we had a few questions or needed assistance. Would highly recommend staying at the condo!

Beautiful beachfront property

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful views from the balconies, living room, dining room and master bedroom. Beach is only steps away. The keyless entries were convenient and offered security not only to the living space but to pool area as well. Convenient parking in garage.

Really enjoyed our stay at Florence 2. The beach, the pool,the proximity to the beach were awesome!

  • 4 of 5

We were very happy with everything. Had read reviews but everything bad on reviews had been taken care of. Our only regret was not having booked a longer stay. Am looking forward to the next trip and knowing we will get a discount will only make it better. Would definitely stay here again!

Sunny side up!

  • 5 of 5

We, mother and two grown daughters, loved looking at the ever changing ocean outside our balcony. The apartment was light and airy. Short walk to the beach. We enjoyed cooking, eating at the big kitchen table, sitting and talking on the really comfortable couch. The beds were great! (That is important to us). We spent the mornings in the air conditioned apartment. The balcony is south east facing and in October was majorly hot in the morning. Then the late afternoons we spent sitting on the beach ( The umbrella and chairs were provided), 'till the moon came out . Then we finished off with the hot tub. Communication with Verna was by text and very quick. Location, location location, the proximity to the water was the best point about this condo.
