About Bob

I discovered South Padre on a very special trip with a very special lady 25 years ago and have been returning ever since. I have been to most of the beach resorts on the east coast, Florida and a few on the west coast. There is no place among them to match South Padre!

Bob purchased this condo in 2001

Why Bob chose Gulf Coast

I love an early morning walk on the beach, lunch on the balcony overlooking the gulf and an evening drink while watching the sun set at a bay side restaurant. Is there a better way to relax?

What makes this condo unique

The private balconies at Inverness are 10' x 25', the largest of any similar beach front unit on the island!

Perfect for our family!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our SPI vacation. This condo was perfect for our family of 3 and so clean. The view from the balcony was amazing. We watched the most amazing sunrises. On Thursday and Friday nights you could see the Fireworks from the front of the condo. It is ideally located in the middle of town. Close enough to everything but far enough from the crowds. The kitchen was well equipped. The only negative is the fold out sofa was very uncomfortable but a quick trip to town for a blow up mattress fixed that. We would most definitely recommend and return to this unit. Can't say enough great things about it! Thank you for a wonderful vacation.

Nice condo with spectacular views

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 2 nights. I was there with my wife and child. The unit is well maintained with spectacular views.Check in was smooth. It was close to the pubs and restaurants which were a short drive away. We didnt do any cooking except for breakfast, but the kitchen has the essentials needed for cooking..

It quite windy which prevented us from enjoying the beach side as much we would have liked to. Hence, we ended up re-watching Jaws after so many years with waves crashing in the background and it was a different feeling this time.

Bob was very helpful to accommodate us in a short notice. We will be back again. Thanks

Great Stay

  • 4 of 5

The unit was perfect for us. Its on the beach with a great view. The unit itself was well appointed and clean. The mattress was a little hard and there was a coffee pot and no coffee. But other wise you just simply cant go wrong with this unit. Bob was on hand and easy to get a hold of during the stay. The amenities were spot on and it was nice to have our own hot tub onsite. Staying this far north is nice because it actually forces you to walk the beach and actually enjoy it rather than staying further north in the middle of all the bars and hotels on the beach. We would definitely rent again.

Great condo for small family!

  • 5 of 5

Condo is wonderful for a small family. My wife and I have two small children (4 & 6 years old boys) and we had a great time at SPI! Condo had everything we needed and the view from the balcony was awesome! The location of the condo on the island was great as well. We were within walking distance to Claytons and even closer to the popular Wanna-Wanna Beach Bar & Grill. The owner "Bob" made himself available for questions or concerns via email and phone, although the whole process went so smooth from beginning to end that we honestly never actually had to contact him. We definitely recommend this condo and look forward to staying here again!!

15-Day Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We have been going to South Padre Island to vacation for many years and our trip this year was the perfect “get-away." It allowed us time to kick-back and relax on the beach as well as an opportunity for my husband to recuperate further following his surgery.

This was our first time to rent from Bob. It was a very pleasant experience working with him and our reservation was processed very quickly and professionally. Our questions were handled in a timely manner to ensure that our stay was enjoyable. We noticed there was a one day opening towards the end of our trip and Bob was very kind in allowing us to extend our stay one day longer before other guests arrived.

We have stayed in other condos at the Inverness, but found Bob’s condo met our expectations. Although it is one of the smaller onebedroom/bath condos, it has a large balcony that offers spectacular views of the ocean. The condo is very comfortable (beach theme) and it provided everything that we might want or need during our stay – very clean and maintained. We were also pleased that Bob’s condo is a “Non-smoking” unit as well as having a “NO Pet” Policy.

During our trip, we enjoyed dining at many of our favorite restaurants: Sea Ranch, Gabriella’s, Liam’s Steak House & Oyster Bar, The Pearl Resort – Sunday Champagne Brunch (that we highly recommend), Pelican Station, Pier 19, Blackbeard’s, Louie’s Backyard – most of which offer a daily happy hour and early “sunset” dinner specials. Also, we found the SPI Museum of interest; which most people overlook.

Overall, we had a wonderful experience and we look forward to future vacations here. We would recommend Bob’s unit to family and friends! Thanks Bob, we had a great time!

Comfortable Condo

  • 5 of 5

The condo is located on a great spot on the beach. All the activities on the beach, such as kite flying, fishing, and surfing was happening right below our balcony. We enjoyed watching the families having fun. I enjoyed watching the sunrise from the balcony each morning.

The kitchen was well stocked with the needed utensils. We decided to eat a few meals in instead of hitting all the eating establishments.

Booking the condo was very easy. The owner was very gracious and accommodating.
