                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2012

                  About the owner: Licensed Texas Nurse and Licensed Texas Realtor. I can help make your own dream come true if your interested in finding a home on our Lovely Island. Just contact me at 210-789-2962

                  Why the Owner Chose North Padre Island:
                  I personally watched this resort being built back in 1989. It looked like a Cape Cod style home along the North Eastern Shore of Connecticut or Maine. I fell in love with coming to this beautiful beach since the seventies. Even the little sand gophers and wild coyotes are still playing in the dunes. One can still drive on this unique beach which visitors love to do as they can spread out their tents and have a bonfire to roast their hotdogs and party overnight.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                  I fell in Love with Condo #231 as soon as I walked in and I believe you will too. While standing in the kitchen you can see the whitecaps and feel the breeze blowing through the windows.People here at the BeachClub are friendly, and they love their exclusive amenities.
