Great location, convenient beach access

  • 4 of 5

Loved the easy access to everything from our room!! Laundry room right outside the door, big pool shaded in afternoon great for those kids who overdid it in the sun but still want to play. Rooms were perfect, especially the kids bunk beds all in one room. Plenty of space and amenities to cook for two families. Local restaurants were awesome, highly recommend Blackbeards and Pier 19, both family friendly! We had a few issues with our condo but they jumped right on getting them resolved. Safe, gated complex. Highly recommend you stop in Port Isabel for paper towels and toilet paper first. Thanks Lori, for the great vacation rental!

Totally worth it!

  • 5 of 5

The view from the balcony was outstanding and the condo was even more spacious than it looks in pictures! We had eveything we needed as far as dishes, flatware, towels etc. The laundry room and trash dump is conveniently located right outside the front door. The elevators are not air conditioned so they were hot and muggy but definitely not a deal breaker. The whole property was very well maintained and had security officers stationed in several places. We suggest you bring a wagon for carrying things to the beach. 3 pools on the property, one with a bar (drinks were expensive) and food shack (didn't eat there). The only negative thing was the maids leave an envelope for you to put a tip in, but since there's a $350 cleaning fee we didn't think it was necessary. Lori was great to work with and answered messages in a timely manner. We will definitely consider this condo again in the future!

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed your stay and thank you for the review! Per our conversation, the one time maid fee is $95 (the charge you referenced was tax on your stay). We recently changed maid services, so thanks for letting me know about the tip envelope. I contacted the cleaning service and they confirmed that this is their policy. I will be sure to let future guests know that this is voluntary and that they should not feel compelled to leave a tip.

Large, no frills, property for a big group

  • 3 of 5

We have been coming to SPI (and specifically Saida) for over 10 years as a large group & this is by far the most basic unit we have stayed in. We love to visit the island, and will always recommend a visit. The condo housed two families for a week fine, there was enough space for us all to be together without feeling cramped. Good views.

We had several small things creep up however; no hangers in closets (so unusable); no sheet pans in the kitchen (sparse cooking utensils generally); no hooks (or very few) to hang wet towels from the shower, sink, or beach; couldn't work the TV and eventually had to buy new batteries (and even then there was no channel guide or instructions etc.); useless broom...small things that added up over time. We have small children, so cooking at home is a must, and so are cartoons, even at the beach. Keep in mind too, this is the furthest away location from the beach on the property, so there is a little walk with all your gear involved.

This unit also was not ready for us upon check in @ 4, and the cleaning lady didn't leave until 5:30pm. We also requested the AC filter be changed out as it was filthy. The owner was responsive to these issues, but could do well to upgrade a few things.

Owner's Response: I am glad that our condo was the perfect size for your party and that you enjoyed the view. Sorry we could not accommodate your late check out request. Prior to your stay, our unit had consistently received 5 stars (20) with a few 4 stars (2). Thus I am surprised by your review. The unit should have been ready at check-in (once again I apologize), but once the cleaning was complete (with positive feedback from you) and the AC filter was changed, I thought all was good, as I did not hear from you again during your week long stay. I do wish you had contacted me with your other issues, as many of them (hangers, cookie sheet, remotes, broom) could have been quickly resolved. I will look into adding a channel guide for the small televisions (there is a built-in guide for the large living room television with the cable box) and more towel hooks in the unit. Guests can quickly run through dry/clean bathroom towels and that is why they can be exchanged on a daily basis, as noted in the welcome packet. Our unit is located closest to the large pool with its snack shack and bar…which many guests enjoy. The posted pictures accurately reflect our location.

AMAZING!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was so spacious and perfect for my family. I very much enjoyed sitting out on the balcony every morning before everyone woke up to just watch the waves. The view is just amazing. My family and I have been to SP for the last 4 summers and I have to say this condo has been the best that we've ever stayed at. Loved it. Looking forward to next year!

Map

Car: not necessary

The Saida complex is a gated community with lots of amenities. You can explore the sand and surf, the 3 pools, hot tubs, shuffle board and tennis courts. Bring your own equipment or rent onsite for a nominal fee. There is also a seasonal poolside bar with kid friendly snacks. If you want a break from the beach, some of our favorite outings are to the Turtle Rescue Center, the Birding Center, bay fishing and the lighthouse in Port Isabelle. There are also lots of great reasonable priced restaurants. Locals love Manual's (cash only & closed on Monday) or Cafe Isabel for breakfast and Marcello's, Pirate's Landing or Dirty Al's for lunch or dinner.
