Overview

About the property

6th Floor 1 BR, 1 BA, with Extra Large Corner Balcony Overlooking the Gulf

Our condo is better than new. Combined with a $2.5 million building renovation during the 2016-2017 winter, we did a complete renovation on our 6th floor condo. The view from the oversized corner balcony can't be better. Here's what we did during our renovation...

New porcelain floor tile throughout

New kitchen cabinets with soft close doors and drawers, stainless apron front sink, granite counter top, and glass tile back splash

All new stainless steel (slate) GE appliances

Enlarged bathroom to increase space

Removed bathtub/shower combo and replaced with tiled walk in shower

New custom built vanity with glass vessel sink and glass tile back splash

Ceiling fans added to bedroom and great room

All new furniture - including balcony furniture

Completely repainted

Photos detailing the entire project can be found on my Shangri-La SPI facebook page.

Enjoy spectacular sunrises over the Gulf of Mexico from the extra-large (9’ x 24’) balcony of this 6th floor PRIVATELY OWNED and Managed corner unit condo located right on the beach of the Gulf of Mexico on South Padre Island. The walkway on the front of the unit provides Island/Bay views, so you can also enjoy the sunsets across the Bay. This 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom unit offers some of the best views on the entire island. Extra large living room has 2 queen size sleeper sofas providing sleeping arrangements for 6.

The Pool, Sundeck, and Jacuzzi are located on the 3rd floor and offers unobstructed gulf views as well, and their Southern exposure keeps them in the sun all day long. There is also a large ADULT ONLY Jacuzzi on the North side of the building, just steps from our front door, that offers gulf views from a pergola ambiance.

This condo provides direct beach access from the bottom floor, and controlled access to the building.

This is the perfect place to start, or continue, the family tradition of beach vacations!

About Brian

My wife and I got our education in Texas, got married in Texas, and gave birth to our daughter in Texas. Then I started working as an engineer in the automotive industry and we moved to Michigan where we lived for about 25 years. I retired from that job and we moved back to Texas to get away from the snow, and to be able to ride our motorcycles year round. We love South Padre Island and wanted a place for family to come visit. This is our home away from home.

Brian purchased this condo in 2016

Why Brian chose South Padre Island

We chose this condo for several reasons.

First, the section of beach in front of the building is less busy than other areas of the beach. Public beach access in this area is limited, therefore the beach does not get very crowded.

Second, this area of the Island is quiet and peaceful, but you can easily walk North or South for some excitement. Clayton's Beach Bar is only 0.7 miles to the North, and Wanna Wanna is less than half a mile to the South.

We especially enjoy the sunrise while drinking our morning coffee on the balcony. Since we are located on the North corner of the building the views up the island are fantastic, and you can even see the fireworks show every weekend in the summer.

The building recently completed a $2.5 million exterior renovation that includes new railings, new paint, tiled walkways, elevator improvements, and access gates to the inside parking areas.

What makes this condo unique

Our corner balcony faces the water and gives views of the beach, and the island to the North. This is a great place to sit with a fresh cup of coffee and watch the sun rise over the Gulf. From the front door you can see the island and watch sunsets over the bay. Summertime fireworks shows can be seen from both the gulf side, and the bay side of the condo.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Well, it only took us five months to find our way back to this wonderful condo. This time there were two couples, and our stay was just as comfortable as when there were two us. The two bedrooms gave us plenty of privacy and there's even a TV in one of the bedrooms as well as the living area. The weather was less than pleasant for our stay (first week of March) but even indoors there is such a gorgeous view of the ocean. The kitchen is well stocked; and although we didn't cook (too many great restaurants to try), we still were able to keep plenty of snacks and beverages on hand. A great visit and not our last!

SPECTACULAR CONDO - GREAT OWNERS!

SPECTACULAR CONDO - GREAT OWNERS!

Beautifully updated condo. Very easy access to the beach. Brian and Peggy Sue, it is obvious that you guys spared NO expense on your renovations. The minute you walk into the condo you get the feeling you’re on 'island time'. From the colorful décor to the "wood" tiled floor! EVERYTHING was just beautifully appointed. You guys also paid attention to all the details from the furniture to stocking the condo with all anyone needs. Your condo was also very quiet which is what we were looking for.

Thank you, Brian and Peggy Sue for the personal touch upon arrival! Thank you for paying attention to the reason we were there and always answering any questions we had in a timely manner. We also loved watching the sunrise from your HUGE balcony. This is the first time either one of us was sad to leave SPI and it was you and your condo that had us feeling that way!

Brian and Peggy Sue, you guys are a class act! We would LOVE to stay in your condo again. Thank you for all you did to help make our anniversary, special. We can’t wait to get back to SPI and your condo. God bless you both!

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is in a great location! Fantastic gulf breezes and view of the beach from the balcony. Since it is a corner unit, you can see all the way down the beach. In addition, the flooring, appliances, and decor are all new. The owner, Brian, is readily available if you need anything. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay here.

AMAZING CONDO - RIGHT ON THE BEACH! WONDERFUL OWNERS!

  • 5 of 5

This condo has been beautifully updated and provides the most welcome feeling the moment you walk in the door. (The welcome note on the fridge from Brian and Peggy Sue was super sweet!) Our family of 4 LOVED this condo. The view from our balcony was AMAZING and we were steps from the beach! This condo has everything you could possibly need and comfortably accommodated our family. The furnishings are lovely. You guys were wonderful to rent from - from the welcome note to the arrival text to make sure our check in went ok to the notice of fireworks shows. We had an amazing time and would highly recommend your place to anyone looking for a great getaway!
