              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2011

              About the owner: Jeff & I went on a vacation to Texas in 2005 to research the idea of moving from the Midwest cold winters to the Galveston-Houston area. We flew to San Antonio and rented a car to make a leisurely drive up the coast from South Padre Island. We made it to Corpus Christi and turned back! South Padre Island had hooked us! The water was bluer and the feel was right. South Padre Island welcomed us with its beauty and warm local charm. In 2007 we moved to Kingsville, Texas. A very cool place but not 'the valley' and not the island. In 2008 we moved to McAllen, Texas -- getting closer! Finally, in 2011 we found our ideal property on South Padre Island. Special thanks goes to Shirley Donahue at Sand Dollar Realty for taking us all over the island several years to look at properties! We love the island and our property. We believe you will too! After all, Life is better on the Beach! Please check out our website: www.islandbeachparadise.com ~Verna
