About Karen Smith

We enjoy coming to the Island to kick back and relax. Eveyone on the Island is so friendly. The beach is great. The restaurants have good food, entertainment, and great service.

Karen Smith purchased this condo in 2006

Why Karen Smith chose South Padre Island

We love being directly on the beach. The Tiki is as close to the beach as it gets without getting your feet wet. We also love the relaxed atmosphere on the island. There are shuttles available from both Brownsville and Harlingen airports, making for a convenient trip.

What makes this condo unique

The views from the balcony are what sold us on this condo. You cannot get any closer to the water. We love to sit and watch the kiteboarders, the kids playing on the beach, and watching skydivers land on the beach next door.

Excellent location!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this condo! So many amenities that we couldn't take advantage of them all! Check in and check out was a breeze and the office staff was very helpful and friendly! The views from the balcony were beautiful- it was perfect being right by the beach. We did not notice any excessive noise the entire time we were there! We will definitely recommend this location to friends and family!

Guest ready and welcoming

  • 5 of 5

The condo has been updated and is quite comfortable. The owners have made it ready for guests of all ages. Perfect beachfront location.

The facility is older but the maintenance crew does an admirable job keeping it looking nice.

Awesome condo!

  • 5 of 5

We have only good things to say about this condo. It had everything we needed and more. The telescope was Awesome! Being on the top floor of this condo complex gives you the perfect view - not too high, not too low. Our leg muscles got a good workout! The beach itself was disappointing. The surf was very strong and the water went all the way up to the dunes. We only got one partial day to sit in our chairs. We were able to take a few walks along the shore but found ourselves in knee deep water every 10 minutes or so. The sandcastle competition had troubles too. They had to bring in extra sand and tractors to build a temporary sea wall so the sculptures wouldn't wash away. We did, however, get to see some surfer dudes! Of course, none of these comments about the beach have anything to do with the condo, which was perfect.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, especially at this time of year. Quiet and peaceful and beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

We loved being right on the beach. During the week, there were hardly any people around; Saturday was really crowded but we drove to beach Access #6 and had a blast. Beach was better than shell island Florida. Tons of beautiful shells and the water was so clear. Loved driving right on the beach so you have access to everything you need right from your vehicle. Spent all day there. Huge sand dunes- were covering the road like snow drifts. Condo was very clean and perfect for the 2 of us. Bathroom was beautiful. Kitchen had everything we needed. Thanks for a great 4 days!

Directly on the beach! Large balcony overloooking the beach and Gulf of Mexico. Short walk along the beach to Clayton's Beach Bar/Grill with entertainment. 5 minute walk to Sea Turtle Rescue Center; 10 minute walk to SPI Birding Center, 15 minute walk to SPI Convention Center.

Other Activities: Shelling, dolphin watching, surf fishing right out front,

The evening Catamaran sailing dinner cruise is excellent, a gentle cruise in the bay. Entertainment and great food is supplied, they have a grill on-board for grilled shrimp and fajitas, BYOB and fireworks cruises in the summer. Sunset at Laguna Bob's (formally The Wahoo) is a tradition. On especially great sunset nights, people actually stand up and applaud. A BYOB sunset on the 'FLATS', at the beach access just North of the Convention Center, is also spectacular. And don't forget to relax and enjoy an evening or two on the balcony or on the beach in front of the Condo.

Golf: SPI Golf Club is about a 20 minute drive in Laguna Vista. Very nice golf course with some holes right on the Bay.

There are also golf courses in and around the Brownsville area (30-40 Minutes) that are nice and have very reasonable fees.
