About Ken

We enjoy South Padre Island in the fall and winter.

South Padre Island is a great place to spend leisure time on the beach. We like the moderate prices for food and drinks. Great places to eat. We walk the beach and look for shells almost everyday.

Ken purchased this condo in 2008

Why Ken chose South Padre Island

Several trips to the area convinced us that this was a very attractive area to vacation and walk on the beach. We also found the weather to be very pleasant. There are many great restaurants and the people are friendly. You can walk to the beach or many restaurants. You can ride the free 'METRO' shuttle anywhere on the island and cross the causeway to Port Isabel. The 'METRO' also has a connector to Brownsville, TX.

What makes this condo unique

Warm breezes and sunshine are a favorite. There are plenty of activities for young and old. The children play on the beach and the older folks can fly a kite or sit by the pool.

Search for shells or just soak up the sun.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Ken,

Check in was easy! The key was in a lockbox and I was given the code by Don when I called Sunday PM. He came by the next morning to check on us and receive his cleaning fee. I was able to lockup the unit and put the key into the lockbox when we departed.

The unit was clean except for the toilet rims which only took about 2 minutes to rectify. The condo is decorated very nice. The lock on the master bedroom door to the outside is broken but the deadbolt does work. There are plenty of dishes and utensils and the kitchen has nice appliances. Your list of activities and restaurants was greatly appreciated and a nice touch.

I am sure that it was more enjoyable being in your condo that in a hotel room. Our experience in SPI and in your condo was definitely positive.

Thanks for helping my family build life-long memories.

Excellent amenities and location

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five loved staying at the Raker's condo. The location to the beach made driving and hassling with parking unnecessary. My kids were thrilled with their bedrooms, and my wife loved the bathroom amenities. I usually bring a bunch of extra kitchen utensils that most places do not have, but they were not necessary for me to make breakfast, lunch and our drinks.

Parking is right in your front door so loading and unpacking was effortless. The pool at the condos was perfect for taking a break from the beach in the afternoon and getting everyone in the frame of mind to go to dinner.

The owners' communication was amazing, and hey even provided us updates while we were there of what was happening on the island that our kids might enjoy.

Thank you for such great accommodations. We hope to see SPI and Falcon House/Aquabeach Paradise again soon.

Owner's Response: I do appreciate getting positive comments about our condo and the location. We try to keep the place well maintained and up to date. My kitchen is well stocked with pots, pans and cookware. I do try to communicate with my guests. I want them to know what is going on and I want to know if something needs attention at the condo. I do hope that you plan to return in the future.

Beautiful place, great location!

  • 5 of 5

Ken's home was lovely! We really enjoyed staying here, and will definitely come back if we have the chance! The location was great, just a short walk to the beach as well as some restaurants. Definitely recommend staying here!

Great place

  • 5 of 5

I really like the place. I don't understand why this shows up as "falcon house". The place is AquaBeachParadise. Maybe you should get the change made.

Beautiful condo and owner is excellent!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the condo! The pictures match exactly and great walking distance to the beach. The setup of the condo is perfect for those with young kids as the bedrooms are away from the main living area so noise isn't an issue.

The refrigerator wasn't working when we arrived but Ken had a new one delivered about 12 hours later! Ken was so helpful and friendly to work with. He really went above and beyond, I can not stress that enough. If we return to South Padre again we will definitely rent with him again!
