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 purchased this condo in 2011

Our recent stay was absolutely wonderful at so many levels. The condo was very clean & comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

The view from our 4th floor balcony was "over the top" beautiful. We loved it & will definitely be returning for additional stays. The complex was very convenient to everything on the island for Nancy & I. Verna, you were an Angel & went beyond the call of duty to make our stay enjoyable. Thank you. Richard McDonald

Very nice and an excellent location, right on the beach!

  • 5 of 5

I gave it 5 stars because it's great, but I would like to advise my fellow travelers that the WiFi is quite weak and somewhat slow....normally, it wouldn't matter, because you should be at the beach and not staring at a screen, but in my case I needed to deal with some business things and speed / connectivity were an issue. Also, there was very little in the way of silverware, but since it was just me it didn't matter....there were no lids for the pots, and there was no skillet....I bought a small one and left it there...if I get a chance to return to Padre Island, I'll definitely book this condo again...the location is perfect: far enough away from the hub-bub of the commercial /touristy stuff, a free bus if you don't want to drive, and it is just like the photos.

Unbeatable location, excellent pricing

  • 4 of 5

For a weekend getaway to celebrate the end of a busy season, this was the perfect place. You can't beat walking a few steps from this smaller condo building and immediately being on the beach (the views from the condo are stunning!). The provided towels, umbrella, chairs, and boogie board made spending hours in the sun a breeze. Providing in-shower soap/shampoo made our packing much easier. The only things I could suggest for improvement include the location of the showerhead. My husband is 6'1" and had issues dealing with the short shower. Perhaps a hand held showerhead option would help taller guests. The lack of working cable on the bedroom tv turned out to be a blessing (yes, there are two tvs!). We got to sleep on the actually comfortable pullout couch in the living room and enjoyed soaking in the beautiful sunrise over the water from our bed. Overall, we loved the views, relatively uncrowded stretch of beach in front of the condo, and proximity to some great island sites (birding center, sea turtle center, good restaurants with sunset views). We would definitely come back for a repeat stay!

Perfect location for a beach vacation. Wake to the ocean sunrise and enjoy coffee while watching the waves from your balcony. Very close, convenient beach access. Comfortable living area with cheerful colors. A number of items and towels available for use on the beach. Still needs a new tub/shower, but the existing one will get you clean. I've stayed here a number of times alone and with my husband and we enjoy it very much.

Fantastc experience

  • 5 of 5

I was blown away by my experience at this rental. The view and location were absolutely perfect. The water is gorgeous and steps away from the beach. The home was clean and comfortable. We fell in love with SPI. You can go into the water quite a ways and still see your feet. More importantly, the owners imediately responded to my questions and ensured our needs were met. I will go back in a heartbeat! We had a relaxing and beautiful stay. Rent here. The customer experience is wonderful. I have worked in corporate property management for 30 years so i know a gem when i experience it. The owners care and will do everything they can to address your needs.
