About Toni Robertson
We bought the Banana Cabana to serve as our home away from home while living overseas in 2005. Now, we are living in the United States and the house is available more for vacationers.

Why Toni Robertson chose South Padre Island
Since the Banana Cabana has been my home away from home for years, it is extremely well stocked -- much more than most rentals you will ever come across. When I am staying there, I entertain friends often, so you will find extras such as pretty pewter serving pieces, both Keurig AND Conventional Coffee Makers, Mixer, Large Electric Griddle for pancakes, etc., 20+ pieces of brightly-colored cast-iron outdoor furniture, gas grill (xtra propane bottle) and conventional BBQ grill, Cuisinart Food Processor, Blender...see the full list on the details page.
What makes this House unique
Although only 3/10 mile (5-min walk) from the beach, the Banana Cabana is 1/2 blk from the bay (nice view from back deck!). We are located on a quiet dead-end street - perfect for families with children. Our pool & back yard face the south, so you have a full day of warm sunshine as well as a large covered area.

A great place to stay for family and friends.
The house was very clean and had everything you would need to enjoy your stay. The pool is great to have in case you don't want to hit the beach. Not a rating of 5 stars only due to some minor issues we had at the beginning of our stay. The owner and manager did a good job in trying to solve our minor issues and were very prompt in contacting us with updates.

This is a wonderful property, everything you need at your for your carefree vacation. It is the best of both worlds, getting away form home but feeling like you are comfortable as if you were home. The kids love the pool, the adults love the space, nice rooms, nice kitchen, and a very clean property. They take care of this property with great pride.

Could Not Have Been Better!!
My husband and I rented Toni's house for a month and this has been one of the best VRBO experiences we have had. The house was exactly as the photos indicated. It was so comfortable that we always looked forward to coming "home" each night. The kitchen was well equipped, the bed was comfy, it was a quiet neighbourhood and the living room furniture made it home for the month. Toni kept asking what we needed and if we mentioned anything, it was there pronto. Toni really went out of her way to make sure everything was perfect. I would highly recommend this property - you won't be disappointed!
We had a wonderful time on our family vacation. As others have noted the home is decorated beautifully, very comfortable and has everything you need. Really enjoyed time around the pool and watching the fireworks from the balcony was an added bonus. Toni was wonderful to work with and was very responsive to any questions we had.
