Guestbook comments from the owner

We have enjoyed staying here, as you have given us a very nice place to call home; thank you for all the thoughtful touches you have put into the condo. The other unit isn’t nearly as nicely appointed as yours. We would be happy to supply a good reference for the unit

Perfect week of fun!

  • 5 of 5

Once again we were not disappointed with our time in the Larson’s condo with the spectacular views! Everything was more than expected and the Larsons are phenomenal hosts! We are already talking about the “next time”. Thank you for not only sharing your home, but for caring so much that we enjoyed our stay. Blessings

wonderful retreat

  • 5 of 5

our stay was very nice, the updates in the condo were very nice and modern, which helped make up for the main strip which was a little more commercial than I'd like. The views from the living room/kitchen as well as the bedrooms made it tempting to just stay inside all the time. The pool was great, never got an ear infection even swimming every day. We borrowed a puzzle from the library which had 1 piece missing! right in the middle of the puzzle. And of course we spent more time looking for that piece than any other. We enjoyed using tennis rackets and ping pong, balls provided too!! Ocean was chilly but was a little early still.

If we return, will try to stay here again.

thanks,

Michael

I stayed here with 3 teenagers for 4 days. The condo was very nice with great updates. It is within walking distance to so many things. I highly recommend this condo. Hopefully we will be back some day.

Wonderful!!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was a wonderful choice for our family! Loved the gorgeous views of the gulf from the living room/kitchen and of the Luguna Madre from the two bedrooms! The lovely beach was a just a short walk from the condo. We had never been to SPI before and we found the beach quality excellent with very fine clean sand. Also enjoyed playing tennis and using the hot tub at the condo, as well. Close proximity to restaurants and shops. The kitchen was well stocked with utensils/dishes and good appliances. The bathrooms appeared to be recently remodeled-very nice. Overall a great stay! Linda and Emil were quick to respond to any questions and were gracious hosts!

Great location and great comfort!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our short visit to South Padre Island. The condo was clean, neat, and comfortable. The only criticism I can offer is to get a pizza pan or baking sheet for families. Otherwise, great view, great workout room, and loved the beach and pool with hot tub. All thumbs up for our family.

Owner's Response: We are so glad you had a great time. We especially appreciate your suggestion, we will try to make sure there's a pizza pan available because what's a vacation without pizza?😁
