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 Texas Gulf Coast

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!

Heaven On Earth

  • 5 of 5

The tranquility and peace of the view in the morning and evening made me hope that my heaven is similar. The condo with it's balcony was a way to have privacy and feel that you are so lucky to be seeing such a spectacular creation of God's hand. It's memory will live in my heart until my last breath.

Great views. Short walk to the beach. Loved the location

  • 5 of 5

Overall, our stay was 10 for 10.

The folks at the front office were great and helpful.

Do not let my comments below keep your from renting this condo.

Just a few improvements could be made to the unit, but they would not preclude us from using the condo again.

Maybe upgrade the TV's to smart TV so that laptops and Ipads could cast content tot the TV.

Wireless signal low and sporadic at times. Could not be used from the balcony.

Get the ice maker working. We had to buy a bag of ice.

Need to replace the kitchen faucet. It is "frozen" in one place. Will not swing from one basin to the other.

But again, everything else was great. South Padre is a fun place to visit.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review and suggestions, and we are glad you enjoyed your stay. The sticky kitchen faucet is being fixed. The tv's are scheduled to be replaced this year, we do understand the desire for smart tv's, which will be happening later this summer, along with bluetooth speakers for music. The wireless internet is provided by the condo association, and they have been in the process of upgrading the system. We intentionally did not hook up the ice maker, as we feel that by using washable ice cube trays, all of our guests are insured they will have fresh, clean ice. Thanks again and we look forward to hosting your next beach getaway!

More than I imagined

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time, watching the crashing waves,(it was windy), the beautiful seagulls flying across our patio to say hello, and the beautiful sunrise. Saturday night we watched the fireworks displayed next to the property. The condo had everything we needed including beach chairs, umbrella, towels, books etc.

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.
