About Paul Cardile

We began visiting South Padre Island more than 10 years ago when our daughter lived in the area, and we fell in love with the island. Dancer condos have a reputation for being beautiful, well-constructed, and meticulously maintained. When we learned that a Dancer condo was available for pre-sale, we took advantage of the opportunity. For several years we managed and rented the condo ourselves while living in the Denver area and later while traveling throughout the U.S. Each year we spent more time on South Padre and less time on the road. For the past eight years, we have been spending our winters in the condo and traveling during the summer. We hope our renters will love South Padre Island and our condo as much as we do.

Paul Cardile purchased this Condo in 2005

Why Paul Cardile chose South Padre Island

When we retired, we learned that new Dancer condos were going to be built. We purchased this property before it was built because of the builder's excellent reputation for high quality, solid construction. We live in this condo 9 months of the year, traveling north each summer to visit our children and grandchildren. We love this area: its beachers. the Laguna Madre,and the unique Rio Grande Valley wildlife and environment. This magnificently beautiful and unique tropical setting combined with its laid- back lifestyle make South Padre Island an enjoyable place to call home.

What makes this Condo unique

We fell in love with our condo because it was spacious with a fine layout of 2 bedrooms and 2 baths. The pool is right outside of our door and only a few of the 8 units are rentals. Our front porch is a great place to barbeque and sit out in the evening with a favorite beverage and enjoy the evening. The landscaping and overall care of the complex makes it a very desirable place to live.

                                                              Lovely Condo near the Beach on South Padre Island

                                                              Edward W.Murphy

                                                              Enjoyed a very nice stay at this condo less than 1 block from the beach on South Padre Island. All of the amenities were covered, and nice, clean rooms that were well decorated. Our family of six enjoyed this location during early-August, which allowed us the flexibility to either rest quietly, or to play family games in the living room without disrupting other guests. We walked 5 minutes to the beach or to other nearby locations, or drove to dinner, movies, shops and Schlitterbaun Water Park on the island. Beds were comfortable if you like firm mattresses, and the sofabed helped accommodate six people. We would recommend maybe blackout shades in the master, but otherwise most everything else exceeded our expectations! The living area was actually larger than we thought based on the online photo. Pool was nice, and it's right outside the door, along with a grill to cook up some burgers and dogs. Appliances nice, new and operationally sound. Paul and Carolyn were very gracious hosts, and helpful when we had any questions. We loved our stay and appreciate your sharing your SPI home with us!

                                                              Loved it. Needed TV in second bedroom for the kids. Nice, clean and welcoming!

                                                              Great location, quite and clean

                                                              Enjoyed our stay at this property. Everything was clean and accomidations were great. Owners were quick to respond to questions and easy to reach. Only suggestion would be to darken the windows with curtains and replace mattress in master bedroom. Regardless, I would definately recommend this property.

                                                              Thank you for staying in our condo. We were glad that you enjoyed your stay there. We will address your recommendations when we return.

                                                              Clean, Relaxing & Comfortable

                                                              Paul & Carolyn's place is so very nicely kept and it is definitely one of the cleanest places we have ever stayed on the Island in the many years we have come. We also have to state that it was bug free which is definitely something to be noted. We felt very much like we were at home in their home. The pool was definitely comfortable to sit by in the afternoon and enjoy a dip if you wanted to cool off, the living, dining and kitchen area were perfect for visiting while I cooked and I could even enjoy the tv at the same time too. My husband, 13year old and I really enjoyed the place. We found it close to the beach, although we did find we needed to drive since we had our chairs, tent, cooler etc.... The place was quiet though with there not being a lot of units like many of the other Condos on the Island. We do hope to come back and stay there again. Oh and Carolyn's photography is unbelievable. I might have to plan a time to meet her as I am a photographer too and I am sure we could find many things to talk about. Wonderful place and great memories while we were there.

                                                              It was our pleasure, once again, to have our high standards for a rental unit be appreciated by one of our newest clients. Let our home be your home away from home. You will have everything you need and be centrally located on the island to get to and from most major things to do on the island. A short walk to the beach (unless you are carrying lots of stuff) then a short car ride to the beach is waiting for you. Take a look and plan to stay with us either late next spring or sometime during the summer.

                                                              Perfect for our family vacation!

                                                              We just spent a week in this lovely condo and it was absolutely perfect for us! The beach is barely a five-minute walk from the front door, and the pool is right outside the door. The complex is very quiet and neat. We had the pool all to ourselves nearly everyday we were there, which our children loved. The bay side is about a ten minute walk and perfect to see the fireworks. We will definitely be back to this condo on our next visit to SPI!

                                                              We have met our goal with this and past renters of having our home by the vacationers home away from home. The convenient location and the care that is taken to assure the renter of the best possible experience will be any future renters guarantee. We are proud that this renter expressed a desire to stay with us again when next the stay on South Padre Island. Thank you.
