Directly on the beach! Large balcony overloooking gulf of Mexico. Easy walk on beach to 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.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: 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.

Why the Owner Chose The Tiki:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
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.
