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!

We absolutely loved our stay! Everything was clean and organized for ease of use. The view was incredible and the beach access was fantastic. We spoke with Verna prior to our arrival and she was very kind and approachable. We would love to stay there again!

Spectacular!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed on SPI for a few years now and we use VRBO regularly and I am quite picky. I have not yet found a until we would stay in again on the Island until now. I am not sure who is giving this until only 3 and 4 stars....this is by far a 5 star (plus!) unit! First, the VIEW. It is spectacular! The unit is spotless, tastefully decorated, very comfortable king bed and sheets, even the towels and washcloths were nice! The kitchen is small, but has all you need; who is there to cook anyway?! And did I mention the view?! it is unobstructed on both sides, with the beach a short distance away, so you can hear the roar of the waves with the sliders open. The slider also has nice pull down shades to block the sun in the morning, but yet not blocking the view. This is also a quiet end of the beach since there isn't any public access close by. The owner responded quickly with any correspondence we had. We will definitely be back! Thank you for your great unit! We finally found a place on SPI we will most definitely return to!

Absolutely perfect!!

This place was perfect for us!! The view of the ocean is beautiful! The access to the beach is so easy. The condo had everything we needed for a relaxing week at the beach. Verna was very accessible when we had questions. We will definitely be back, and are recommending this place to our friends! Thank you, Verna!!
