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.
Sofa Sleeper, Love Seat, Flat Screen TV, DVD Player. Some Family DVD's to keep the kids busy with. New sliding glass doors to Large Deck. AWESOME GULF VIEWS FROM ANYWHERE IN THE LIVING ROOM OR KITCHEN.

Great condo for a wonderful vacation
Great condo for a wonderful vacation
Love, Love , Love this place! Extremely spacious for a one bedroom. The newly remodled space is wonderful. Kitchen had everything we needed, bathroom was beautiful and the bed is very comfortable. Definitely worth the money.... and let me just say THE VIEW! Wow - it's true that it is the closest to the beach. If we weren't parasailing, horsebackriding, turtle rescue visiting, at the pool, crab hunting, shopping or hanging on the beach, we were definitely on the balcony! We even saw a water spout!! same day as the turtle release - I felt like it was Discovery Channel Saturday at the Tiki! I am ready to book for next year : )

Great stay at this condo!
Great stay at this condo!
We were thoroughly impressed with this condo. Upon arrival we found it squeaky clean and it felt like a home away from home immediately. The remodeled kitchen is gorgeous, and stocked with all the cookware/ dining ware you could want. The bathroom was beautiful as well. The king size bed was extremely comfortable, and the ocean view in both the living and bedroom cannot be beat! It was very special to be right on the beach. We've stayed on S. Padre several other times, but this was the best accomodation so far. The pool was clean and heated- like bath water! Which was nice as the ocean was freezing and my 4 yr old daughter wanted to swim, of course! Favorite highlights included a sunset dolphin watching cruise, Dirty Al's for seafood, Yummies for breakfast, and Gabriella's for pizza. We had a wonderful stay, and would recommend this condo to anyone.....

Great honeymoon getaway!
Great honeymoon getaway!
My wife and I stayed here for a week for our honeymoon and were completely blown away by this condo. It is incredibly charming, updated and has fantastic views. The bedroom is a large space, it almost makes the king bed seem small. The living room, dining room and kitchen all flow nicely together. Their kitchen is modern and full of utensils/cookware to make nearly anything. The bathroom is greatly done, and the toilet/shower area can be closed off from the vanity area. The outdoor balcony stretches the length of the condo and is accessible from the living room or bedroom. The Tiki property is literally right off the beach, and was very clean. There is a decent pool and a some good outdoor grilling areas. It is also pet-friendly as we took our dog and saw several others. We enjoyed the Sea Turtle Rescue Center and the Birding and Wildlife Center, which are both walking distance from the condo. There are tons of great restaurants throughout the island, but if one night you are looking for non-seafood, we recommend La Hacienda and their fajitas. Everything is made in-house and it definitely shows. The owners of this condo are awesome. You can see their passion in all aspects of the place. They were very communicable and friendly. Their condo is better than advertised. My wife and I will be back for sure.

Love<3Love<3Love!!!We have been here the whole month of January and have February left to stay.All we can say is WOW!Every time we walk in and see the breath taking view of the ocean I have to pinch myself to make sure it is for real.We had a chance to meet Brent and Bev during our stay they are wonderful hard working people and you can see this in every thing about this condo.Great owners. It is so quiet and private,but full of wonderful friendly people all around.There's really nothing you need to bring,they have everything ready to go.The Condo is spotless and for our long stay it is fun to clean myself.Love the tile floors,fantastic kitchen and the new bathroom if it wasn't for the ocean view you could just stay in there for hours.The new bed is so comfortable I don't even miss mine from home and makes a big difference.The internet works for us.They have new grill area that looksgreat.All I can say is this condo is absolutely wonderful,cute &cozy.The people in the office are so nice and helpful.We fill very safe here.We start the day reading on the deck watching the sun come up followed by endless miles of walking on the beautiful beach meeting many smiles from all the happy beach lovers.We have found Paradise right here in this condo.We have been overtaken by witnessing many parachuter's right next door,awesome to see while sitting on the deck,front row view.So many things to see and do."The Wave" is the Public Transportation that goes all over the Island and across the Causeway from 7am-9pm and you could stay with out your own transportation. I have to count my blessing every morning when I wake up and find myself on Tiki time.Thanking you owners for making this a wonderful stay.On for one more wonderful month.

Owner response: We are so glad you are enjoying your stay and enjoying the same things we do when we are down there. We don't get to meet our guests too often so it was nice to meet you also. We look forward to your return visit next year.
We were fortunate to be able to spend Thanksgiving week in the condo. The weather was spectacular and each day we literally had a front row view of the ocean. The condo itself was as advertised and more. The bed was so comfortable. A great bathroom! Fantastic kitchen! We didn't watch tv much but also two flatscreens! The condo feels private whether you are inside or on the balcony. It is so cool to be able to walk right on to the beach. My wife spent hours just reading and listening to the ocean knowing that a drink or a snack was just footsteps away. This is an ideal place for a couple to getaway for awhile and that is just what we did. Brent was fantastic through the whole process making sure that everything went well. We are already looking at our work schedules and the availability calendar so we can return. We only went out to eat once so we are anxious to explore the dining options in South Padre but Thanksgiving dinner on a balcony overlooking the ocean is a memory I will never forget.

Absolutely beautiful !

My husband and I spent a week here and it was absolutely wonderful. The condo has a view of the ocean and beach that is behind description. We spent many hours sitting on the balcony enjoying the view. The kitchen in the condo is really nice, everything is beautifully furnished and clean. There are some really good restaurants on the island (Dirty Al's, Gabriella's, Daddy's). Went skydiving over the ocean landing on the beach right near the condo, it was awesome. I would highly recommend this condo and I hope to return soon.

Owner response: Thanks for your review. It sounds like you enjoy all the same things we do except for the skydiving. We hope to hear from you soon.
Well, I will admit that at first I was nervous about using VRBO to book a condo since I'd only just heard of the website. After review all that was available I thought I'd give it a try. Brent really closed the deal for me with his answers to my questions and was very accommodating of a newbie. Needless to say we are VRBO users now... This condo was great. The description and the pictures were spot on. You really can toss a rock, or ice cube, to the gulf from their 3rd floor balcony! Awesome views, great sea breeze, nice relaxing sound of the waves, and awesome weather for us (except for the one morning of dense fog). The kitchen was very nicely remodeled. Excellent taste and modern appliances and decorations. Love the counter tops. The living room was nice as well. Could watch TV or just stare out at the gulf. Bedroom was spacious and looked updated as well as the bathroom. Hop down the stairs to the beach and you could walk/jog/run in either direction for what seemed like miles. Just north there is a large beach bar where you can hang out and get beverages, listen to music, watch beach volleyball, or pop in for a bite to eat. We thought it would be an issue being so close but honestly you can't hear the place at night. The pool was great too. We had the ocean and then the pool. Perfect! We would definitely return and stay in this condo again. Very nice.

Our wise choice
Our wise choice
Just coming to the end of the first week of a four week stay in the condo. A one word description............INCREDIBLE. This is, without question, the finest condo in the Tiki complex (we've looked at several others while here, and have made many friends already). The owners have done a spectacular job in the rehab effort, and as we are staying for a month, this is really appreciated - especially the new kitchen. We are cooking, and loving it. A suggestion for those that like to grill out. Go to Wal Mart and pick up a mini grill for the ground level grill area. They haven't replaced the grills here yet, and they are pretty beat up. Restaurants so far have been great for seafood lovers. The beach bar next door is beginning to rock out late at night with spring breakers, but if you keep the sliders closed, you can barely hear it. Personally, we like the excitement so no problem for us. Comments from others......couldn't find internet? Internet is easy to find, with an ssid of "tiki guest" and the connection is super fast. Dishwasher works like a charm. Dishes are bright and shiny. Hey Owners!.....you forgot to tell us......a parachute excursion company uses the Tiki beach - right in front of our noses - 3 times a day, everyday! It is awesome to watch them float down right in front of us. I will pop in with a comment weekly until time to come home. Right now, just superb.

Great Winter Getaway
Great Winter Getaway
My wife and I, after marrying December 18, chose to drive seven or so hours to South Padre to spend our honeymoon in this condo. Though the weather wasn't exactly perfect for beachgoing, the stay was wonderful. The beach was very close and the view of the ocean, especially in the morning, was phenominal. The condo was clean and up to date. There were a few movies present to keep us entertained. The area was quiet and pleasant. The description was exactly as listed. We are thinking of heading back during the warmer months to enjoy the beach. Excellent support and friendly people. This was awesome.

Owner response: Thanks for your feedback. It's a great place for a honeymoon stay. Sorry to hear about the weather as it is hit or miss during the winter months. We stayed 2 weeks later and had mostly sunny days in the mid and low 70's. We look forward to hearing from you again soon.
Cute Condo on the Coast
Cute Condo on the Coast
We enjoyed our stay at this cute Tiki Condo on the coast. We walked to the nature birding center and the sea turtle rescue habitat several times. On a day when the sea was fairly smooth, we watched a group of dolphins feeding and jumping in the ocean from the condo balcony!! We were able to walk on the beach daily and found it to be one of the best walking beaches we have visited. We visited the little beach bar right next door once for shrimp, and enjoyed that as well. We really enjoyed watching the sun rises in the morning from the balcony, then in the evening, we watched many activities on the beach over the weekend. We went to the pool a couple of times and found it clean and warm. We enjoyed our time in South Padre Island.

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.
