About Lonnie

We are from the Chicago area and have owned the unit since 2007. We bought the unit as we wanted to be able to go to the beach without the beach following us to our condo. We wanted to be close to the places to eat or just for a short walk at night without driving. We bought it when we still had 2 boys that we wanted to walk everywhere and go to the pool at night for relaxations without getting in the car. As you can tell we wanted a place where we could park when we arrived and walk everywhere. This condo provides that luxury for us and we hope will do the same for you.

Lonnie purchased this condo in 2007

Why Lonnie chose Gulf Coast

Because its the best unit in the area for the money. I have stayed their several times, get up in the morning and go for a bike ride. We always have a Great Time while being close to the beach and yet no Sand in your face when you leave the beach. We bring our cooler, some food for the day, and get a umbrella on the beach with two chairs, sit back and relax for the day. Easy to get to the beach and enjoy your day.

Small pool in the back for small parties while grilling your favorite food.

What makes this condo unique

First floor, easy to park and walk into the unit. Great pool and grilling the back for those evenings when you want to slow down. Walking to all bars and places to eat with families.

Beautiful Condo with lots of space

  • 5 of 5

My family and I recently stayed here for a small beach getaway. I would recommend staying here. The condo was spacious enough to fit four adults and four children very comfortably. Full working kitchen so that we didn't have to eat out every night. The best part is that it is very close to the beach. We were able to pack a wagon and walk to the beach no problem. Honestly nothing negative to say. My family and I enjoyed ourselves.

South Padre getaway

  • 4 of 5

My stay in South Padre was great. The house was very comfortable. The location is walking distance to beach and shopping. My expectations were met. We celebrated a big birthday and the house accommodated us fabulously.

Great place to stay...just needs a little TLC!

  • 4 of 5

Here is our pros and cons for this rental:


*it is SO CLOSE TO THE BEACH! It is less than a block to get to the beach! It was so nice to be so close! (we even carried a pop up shade thing and it was fine)

*the air conditioning was AMAZING! It was so nice to come back from a day at the beach and have the condo be so cool and comfortable.

*the kitchen is spacious has plenty of room to cook meals.

*although I don't necessarily know if they belong to the owner of the condo (as it says they do not provide chairs/umbrellas for the beach) there is an outdoor closet with plenty of things to stay comfortable at the beach. A few chairs, a pop-up tent, some beach toys, boogie boards, a cooler. We brought some toys with us and left them in that closet as well. I can't promise they will be there for the next person who rents it, since I don't believe the owner provides them...but they were there for us.

*it's close to tons of restaurants and convenient stores, so they are easy to walk to as well

*there is tons of sleeping spaces, a queen bed, two twin beds, a bunk bed with a twin and a full, and a pull out queen couch.

*the owner was easy to work with, always quickly responded to any questions we had before and after our stay.

*there were outdoor showers to rinse off after the beach


*although there is plenty of sleeping space, there is very little "relaxing" space. There is only a small couch and a love seat, so for the 8 adults we had, most of us were stuck sitting on a bar stool or on the floor if we all wanted to watch TV at night. It would be comfortable for maybe 5 adults, but it was not comfortable for a larger group l like ours. This was our biggest complaint about this location and would be the only reason we would tell a larger adult group to find another location.

*there is a washer/dryer provided, but the dryer takes FOREVER to dry. Like...3 hours to dry a load of towels. It also squeaks something fierce, but I was able to 'solve' that issue by putting something heavy on top of the dryer (a pack of water)

*while most of the appliances/pans in the kitchen work just fine, some of them are getting a little worn out and could use some updating.

*most of the other things that were annoying were little, and could be fixed very easily, i.e.. lots of burnt out light bulbs, back door sticks badly

With a little updating and maybe some better seating arrangements, we would recommend this place to anyone looking for a rental at SPI!

Relaxing and great location!

  • 4 of 5

Fantastic location! This condo - as listed - was so close to the ocean we walked there each day with chairs and umbrella in hand. The kids had an absolute blast with all the beach toys left in the outside storage room. We'd bought some not realizing how well supplied the condo is and ended up leaving them for the next renters. The condo itself was quite comfortable with plenty of room for the six of us to lounge and enjoy, and thankfully we could all fit around the table which is nice for those meals at home. Kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed to prepare food and serve up meals for six hungry travelers. In the evenings, when we were not out enjoying the fireworks, we relaxed with a movie on the big television or spent time in the small but adequate pool in the backyard. We made use of the convenient outside showers before taking a dip in the pool after our fun in the sand and surf. The BBQ out back was also a welcome addition as my husband is a master griller and we were even able to make up some s'mores as a special treat. The three bedrooms gave us plenty of room for the four kids to have some privacy and a bed to themselves, and it was nice to have a roomy master bedroom with its own bathroom for my husband and myself. There were some great restaurants nearby (Blackbeard's is just a block away) and it was more centrally located for a quick trip to the market or the many souvenir shops on the island (personally I would recommend Harris Sea Castle in Port Isabel). The nearby beach is clean and not overly crowded, delightful for a daily adventure or a casual evening stroll. The only reason I don't give five stars are some minor issues that I've contacted the owner about and I'm sure will be resolved. It is a very nice condo, pleasantly decorated and roomy - clean and comfortable. We truly enjoyed a wonderful week's vacation and would definitely recommend this place to family and friends. Thank you!
