our family had a fantastic time, we just checked out Sunday ! I can't say enough about what a awesome Condo this is .The pictures of this Condo don't do it justice !!! It has a large ,beautiful beach front deck. We couldn't get enough of the beautiful beach view ... we woke up every am to the most beautiful sun rise. We never wanted to leave the Condo it has every appliance you could ever use . Kitchen is very clean and larger than it look's . We went and bought some fresh seafood and made a night of eating , watching Ocean and playing games .we enjoyed our stay so much and are looking forward to coming back to this condo many times ! Thank you Bret and I'm so sorry I woke you up in the middle of the night to get help ... All I can say about Bret is that even when I woke him up for some help ... he was very nice and helped us out! I encourage people who want a clean, nice condo with a beautiful beach view to check this one out ! We went horse back riding on the beach and ate at Blackbeard on our daughters B day ! The sea turtle rescue was awesome .

I booked this condo for a week of fun & relaxation on the beach with my 3 closest friends. We had an absolute blast! The condo location is fantastic, easy to find and yet not too far from island activities. We walked to local restaurants/bars, only a short walk down the beach. The drinks & entrees were reasonably priced at most places. The actual unit was amazing, a lot better than I expected. The kitchen was fully stocked, the beds were clean and comfortable. The condo staff was very friendly. We had absolutely no problems with the unit, neighbors, building or island for that matter. The owner was very easy to get ahold (phone & email). I will definitely remember this unit and owner for future vacations.

Deck of Sighs
Deck of Sighs
The deck overlooking ocean is deep and breezy - take binoculars to watch the surf-sailers hop the waves, pelicans glide by in ancient formations, figure out the face on a kite, and, if you're luck, a dolphin or 2. You'll need to go inside only for internet to download another book since connectivity doesn't reach outside. The condo and beach are better than the pictures and the reviews.The ocean is lapis blue like the area around AL and FL beaches, yet less densely crowded since Padre is a continuous beach for 7 miles - clean, constantly patrolled, and people amazingly friendly. Dogs and people caring for them abound, which is terrific for us with a fur family. And, yes fireworks staged to appear off the bay side then off the ocean on Friday and Saturday nights. TY Brent!

A Little Bit of Heaven in an Ocean Front Haven
A Little Bit of Heaven in an Ocean Front Haven
As a skeptic, I am always doubtful of things too good to be true. However, staying at this condo for a week has erased all doubts! My family and I spent a week here on the South Padre waterfront experiencing a little bit of heaven on earth! Not a fan of big buildings nor high level floors, I became a believer when we exited the elevator on the 8th floor and saw the bay on the other side of the island above all of the housetops. The location somewhat 'up island' with many houses vs. big buildings behind us allows for the sweeping views in the back as well, where we watched the 4th of July fireworks, content to be away from the crowds! The configuration of the condo allowed us to feel private, as we hardly saw people coming and going on our floor. As for the ocean, the picture in the ad says it all. That is what you see- no buildings next to you (due to the private, ample balcony) and NOTHING in front of you to obscure the view. As an added bonus, for some reason the beachfront in front of the property (walk right out to the beach from the garage!) is one of the least crowded on the beach. The owner is very amenable and was patient with all of my questions.The price was very reasonable for this hopping resort area. The condo was more than comfortable, even with 5 of us adults together. Having 2 bathrooms was a definite plus! The pool on the side 3rd floor offers a view of the beach, perfect for those of us accompanying friends or family. We had a wonderful week and hope to return in the future. Thank you, Brent, for providing a wonderful place for us to reunite our family and create new memories.

Owner response: Thank you for your review. It's hard to describe the views with the awesome views of the bay to the rear and the awesome ocean views from the LR/Kitchen/DR and Deck. It is truly something you need to experience to appreciate. We are so glad your family enjoyed the condo and hope to hear from you again.
The pictures don't do this condo justice. The views from the balcony are priceless! Who wouldn't want to stay in a condo w/ unobstructed views of the beach and the Gulf? The furnishings were very tasteful. The condo was spotless. The kitchen had everything you could ever want and then some extras. When we were there only one elevator worked so that was frustrating but we got alot of exercise going up and down eight flights of stairs! The air conditioning was frozen when we arrived but one call to Brent and service was scheduled. My husband and I loved walking on the beach. The first morning we were there was Easter and we saw the Easter Bunny walking on the beach! Hilarious!! We were a little further from the shops and touristy stuff but we didn't go there for that. We went for a relaxing week at the beach....and it was delivered! We didn't want to leave but I know we will definitely return in the near future.

Owner response: Thanks so much for you stay and wonderful feedback. We're glad you enjoyed your vacation. We greatly appreciate your business and hope to hear from you again. As mentioned in the listing, we have worked hard to make everything just right and to have the little things in the condo that make a difference so our renters enjoy their vacation and their stay at the condo. As far as the elevator, good thing there are 2 on the premises and I think they're working on finding someone else who can fix them faster. The view; words can not describe it. It is truly amazing. Thanks again, Brent & Bev.
This newly remodeled condo is in a great location right on the beach. The pictures are very accurate. The deck overlooking the gulf is a definite highlight. It is very private and quiet. It was windy while we were there, but it is protected so you can enjoy it even in "iffy" weather. You can also see the sunset over the bay from the entrance to the condo. We set up our folding chairs there each evening. The condo is beautifully decorated and the kitchen has everything you could possibly need. It is also very quiet. Brent responded promptly to every email I sent before and during the rental.We enjoyed the views and sitting on the deck most of all, and we liked walking the beach. In the area we visited the wild bird refuges.The SPI Wild Bird Refuge in particular is a fantastic center, and it is nearby. I highly recommend this condo.

Owner response: Thanks so much for your kind review. It sounds like you enjoy all the things we do also. The view of the Gulf and beach from one side and the view of the island, bay and sunsets on the other side are our favorites too. Thanks for being our 1st renters at this condo. We hope to hear from you again.

About the owner: OK, that not me in the picture, that's our son. This is our 2nd property on SPI. We live in Wisconsin and love to spend time down on the island.
Why the Owner Chose Inverness:
Beachfront, Beachfront, Beachfront. Amazing views of the Gulf from the deck and within the condo as well. You can literally throw a stone from the deck to the beach. You can also over look the island, the bay and causeway from the east (most condos don't offer this view). This is the type of condo we always looked for when vacationing ourselves. 1st priority was always being on the beach. Not beach view, but on the beach. With this condo, we can be on the deck, relax to the sounds of the surf and take in the sights of the Gulf and miles and miles of beach.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
When shopping for a vacation rental, I like you, look for a great deal. We've tried to price this condo very competitively. I see many beachfront and non-beachfront units for more. This next part is somewhat difficult to convey: Price is important, but it's not everything. Most of us (me included) look for the lowest price. But that's not always the best value. To save $50, $100 or whatever amount on a weekly rental and have something that is acceptable or something you'll be disappointed in is not worth it. Ask a lot of questions when picking out a place. The pictures in the different listings don't tell the whole story. Big details like the condition of the condo or cleanliness don't show in the pictures. Small details like silverware, wall art, furniture, TV's don't show up either. Many condos are often equipped with the old items that aren't being used at the owners main house anymore so they furnish the condo with them. NOT THIS ONE. We have personally spent hours and hours of hard work painting, fixing, replacing/remodeling and furnishing this condo with nice items, not left overs or garage sale stuff. This is a great value!!! We hope you choose our condo when visiting the island.
