The Tiki condo description

Direct Beach Front 1 Bedroom Condo with Awesome Views. This is the one you've been looking for. Direct Gulf/Beach views from the Living Room and Master Bedroom. You can also enjoy the views and the surf from the large 20' deck.

'Owners editorial' When traveling to the ocean, my family always wanted to stay at a Beach Front unit. We always felt that if we're spending a lot of money to travel, why compromise and stay at a ocean view or garden view unit. Many advertise their units as Beach Front or Gulf Front. When investigating, you find that they are a garden view unit in a beach front complex or they have a partial beach view from one room or from the deck. This is a Beach Front/ Gulf Front unit in every way.

We bought this unit because it is like the condos that we'd typically look for when shopping for a vacation rental. It has breath-taking views from the bedroom, living room and the deck (A stones throw to the gulf - I actually threw a stone from our deck to the water last trip - It's as close to the water and beach as you can get!!!).

Being a family with a limited budget, we understand trying to get the best value. We have decided to offer our unit for rent at prices similar to garden view units. By offering our condo at competitive rates, we hope to have it booked solid (this will allow us to keep the rates down) We hope you will come and stay at our condo in South Padre Island. If we can help with your vacation plans in any way, please ask.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2011

                  About the owner: We have been married for 30+ years and are blessed to have two wonderful healthy children. Our 4 year old dog has not made the trip to SPI yet. We work together in a family owned business in Wisconsin.

                  Why the Owner Chose The Tiki:
                  We have friends who bought a condo at the Tiki in Spring of 2010. We went to visit in the Fall and purchased our condo in February 2011. We loved the location of this facility and condo. Being at the north end of the island, it offers privacy and less congestion on the beach. We love long walks on the beach and this location is perfect for that. The large deck, proximity to the beach and Gulf, and views from every room in the condo made it a perfect fit.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                  The view. The view and the view. You can't beat it anywhere. We have had people who have stayed on every floor of the Tiki say, 'We will not stay anywhere else, other than the 3rd floor/beachfront unit We just love it!' The cathedral ceilings also add to the openness which is only available on the 3rd floor units. The large deck with bar height chairs is a great place to be. Views from every room in the condo are breathtaking. Also, the condo has been totally remodeled with all new matching porcelain floor tile throughout, new cabinets and vanity with granite counters, most of the furniture and decorations are new, new appliances and all the items you'd want in the kitchen are new and supplied. ------------ Do your homework. Make sure that the beach front listing is truly a beach front unit. Check into the size of the unit as well as the proximity to the Gulf. Our condo is 750 SF, a whooping 170 SF larger than other popular one bedroom units on SPI and is as close to the Gulf as you can get. The degree of the remodel is also a difference you will see. Not all condos are equal and this one has been said to be one of the best at the Tiki.
