About the property

2 Bedrooms - 2 Bathrooms - Sleeps 6

I'm sitting on the couch typing this on my laptop, watching and listening to the waves out the large patio door.

Or, I could walk a few steps onto the balcony that overlooks a beautiful courtyard with grills, pool and hot tub. The security gate off the courtyard takes you directly to the beach.

Re-modeled kitchen with granite countertops, new backsplash and stainless appliances in December 2014.

Both bathrooms upgraded in 2014 with new walk-in shower in master bath (see pictures).

Walking distance to many restaurants; some as close as a block a way. 'The Wave' is free public transportation that goes all over the island as well as over the bridge to Port Isabel that has a Wal-Mart SuperCenter and HEB for your shopping needs.

Free WiFi in condo; Fully equipped kitchen.

About Sue Jahn

We live in Wisconsin and have owned this property since 2004 when we bought it from Stan's parents. They still spend the winter at the condo and we visit occasionally.

We have been renting our condo over the past 10 years through a local rental agency. We have had many very satisfied reviews, but since we decided to rent ourselves over the Internet, we need rebuild our 'satisfied renter' reviews. We hope you will enjoy your stay and give us a good review.

We enjoy our time at the condo, especially the great beach view; and, wish we could be there more often.

Sue Jahn purchased this condo in 2004

Wonderful view

  • 4 of 5

With 4 woman staying in the condo with all our stuff this condo was very comfortable. The view was breathtaking. The private entrance from the condo to the beach was great. The only thing I could suggest is that there was hand soap, dish soap and trash bags provided. These are not typical things to bring on vacation. I would however stay here again. We all had a great Girls weekend

Condo was nice but rainy, cool and then muggy humid weather during our stay was the only problem.

A Perfect Condo

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in this beautiful condo was truly restful and refreshing! Besides the lovely beach view and the ever-so-welcome reclining chairs, we enjoyed the many thoughtful extras provided by the owner: plenty of drawer space for our clothing, lots of surface space for the pantry items we brought with us, and several hooks and towel racks on which to hang bathing suits and other damp clothing. Additionally, the location was perfect: a 45-minute walk south would take us to the southern tip of the island with all of its attractions, and a 45-minute walk north would take us to the marvelous sand castle competition being hosted at Clayton's Beach Bar. After these walks, a dip in the lovely and immaculately-kept pool was the perfect way to get rejuvenated. We would gladly return over and over, and we're grateful for every kindness shown to us by Sue, the owner.

Stayed here with my Husband for our wedding vacation, very nice condo! Sue replied to my messages very quickly and made sure we had all the details. Check in/out was super easy. It was very quiet and peaceful there. the view from the balcony is amazing!! It's small but for just the two of us it was perfect. Great location on the island too, easy beach access and close to everything. We really enjoyed our stay!

A wonderful week!

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I met in SPI for a week, and had the BEST time! We spent our time walking on the beach, laying by the pool (sometimes we were the only ones there!), trying many of the local restaurants, reading, reading, and reading! It was great having two beach chairs and an umbrella to take to the beach with us, as the rentals were expensive. The condo was perfect and we really appreciated having WiFi in the condo instead of having to go downstairs to use the common WiFi access area. The views were lovely--gorgeous sunrises over the ocean from the living room balcony, and sunsets over the bay from the balcony by the bedrooms--the best of both worlds. The condo had most everything we needed--and what it lacked, we picked up at the Dollar Store in Brownsville--small containers of soap for the dishwasher, liquid dish soap, bar soap for the bathrooms and Kleenex. We loved having the recliners in the living room--so comfortable, and a great spot to sit and read or watch TV. The weather was perfect, though we were both hoping for a rainy, stormy hour or two! We tried many of the restaurants others had recommended and our favorites were Ceviche Ceviche and Yummies. We also tried Ted's, Grapevine Cafe, Pier 19, BurgerFi, Kelly's, Cap'n Roy's, Chilitto Pikin, Gabriella's, Daddy's, Louie's & the breakfast tacos at Stripes. Sue was very responsive to all our questions prior to booking the condo, and provided all the information we needed to feel very comfortable once we arrived there. The condo building was older, but nicely maintained--the landscaping looked like it had been manicured, it was so perfect. We enjoyed ourselves, and hope to return. Thanks, Sue, for sharing your lovely condo with us.

Easy access to the beach with great views.

  • 4 of 5

The condo is small but well kept. Everything that you need is provided. The beach is easily accessed. The pool and hot tub area was clean as well as the area for grilling. Our only complaints is that we found a dirty coffee cup in the cupboard and two dirty utensils in the tray. Not the owners fault as they live out of state, but whoever does the cleaning needs to check better before putting things away. Overall we enjoyed our stay and would recommend this unit.
