                  Year Purchased: 1999

                  About: Presently, I'm a therapist/psychiatric nurse practitioner and clinical instructor at a state school of nursing. However, when we purchased Casa Familiar, I was a stay at home mom with 9 children, 2 with special needs and 1 or 2 foster children. Managing a rental business was a great way to stay at home and work. Technology has made working from anyplace possible. With my phone, I can answer emails while out of town. Working in our rental business has given me the opportunity to meet many wonderful people to whom I'd never have access and the hours are very flexible.

                  Why Private Homes:
                  During Thanksgiving week, 1999, my husband & I loaded up our Suburban with our 9 children and drove for the first time to a beach directly straight south of Kansas City...arriving in South Padre Island 17 hrs. later. After vacationing in Marco Island, FL, the previous year, we found that SPI was much more family friendly. We all fell in love with it. So much so, that we figured out how we could purchase a beach house making time at the beach a regular family event. We were able to find a rundown townhouse, which sat directly on the beach and had been on the market for over a yr. We negotiated a great price, renovated it ourselves, named it Casa Familiar, and began renting to help with our costs. Since then, we've been renting to some wonderful families for as many as 10 years and others who have stayed several times. Now that our children are getting married and having children, we've expanded by purchasing Casa Vecina which adjoins Casa Familiar. Thanks to the financial support of our guests, we're able to maintain and update the house making it a comfortable and family friendly place for everyone to enjoy.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                  There's nothing like real beachfront living...unfortunately, many property owners claim beachfront but are located across the street or even blocks away. The end of the patio is the seawall & the boardwalk takes you to the beach. You can prepare lunch in the kitchen while watching the kids play on the beach and be within shouting distance when they need to come in.
