About The Owner

My wife and I are from Minnesota. We have been visiting the Island since 1987 and look forward to every trip to wonderful South Padre Island. We have two grown children who also travelled with us to the island for many years. Our daughter enjoyed the area so much that after she got married she moved to the area. I enjoy bike riding on the 30 miles of unspoiled beach.

The Owner purchased this condo in 1998

Why The Owner chose South Padre Island

We purchased a condo on South Padre Island, because we absolutely love the Island. In Texas, the beaches are protected public property. Hotels can't fence off entrance to the beach. You can walk or bike ride 30 miles without any fences or private property.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We really liked the condo. The three flat screen TV's were great. The playstation kept our kids busy. The ocean front balcony was awesome to watch the sun rise. Highly recommend.

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family and I just had our second vacation in this condo and we loved it! The condo has been updated (my 15 month old loved the new master shower!) and it was very clean when we arrived. Terry was very quick to reply to my inquires and very helpful. The staff at the condo was also very friendly, helpful, and accommodating. We were very comfortable here and hated to leave. We will definitely come back!

Relaxing Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a place to relax, recharge and enjoy the scene. This condo met all our needs. The staff was friendly and helpful throughout our stay. The property had everything you needed - pool, washer/dryer, towel service, luggage carts, elevators, etc... The condo was a great home away from home. Great open space with kitchen, bar/stools, dining table area and living area with comfortable sofas. Kitchen was very well stocked with utensils, plates and pans - everything you need. TV's with cable access and movie channels made for a relaxing time. The master bedroom includes a walk-in closet which made it nice to store all our clothes and other stuff. All rooms are spacious and comfortable. I am looking forward to returning and staying here again. Thanks for a great experience.

Our second visit, very satisfied once again. Thank you, Terry, for the prompt response to my request within minutes. We noticed the upgrades to your condo, we especially liked the master shower. It always feels like home, thank you!!! No complaints, wish we could've stayed longer. The staff is always so welcoming and very helpful!! 💕

Beautiful property! Great family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This was our third trip to South padre with our three small children (all under 8). We've stayed at two other condos and this vacation home was by far our favorite! It's beautiful! The top floor condos of Suntide II have these wonderful two story windows in the living rooms and master suites that make the space feel bright and big.

The condo was spacious and clean and had a beach-y feel without the shell and fish decor overkill. The kitchen was big and modern, comparable to many family kitchens, I’m sure, with a pantry. Personally, I hate the tap water on South Padre Island, so I would go with bottled water while staying there.

The dining room table is nice, sturdy hardwood and easily wiped down - very important with kids. The living room television is very large and the master bedroom tv only slightly smaller. The kids had no complaints about their room’s tv (much smaller). There was a working Playstation2 with lots of games for the kids to choose from. There were DVD players in the living room and bedroom and DirectTV on each TV. Basically, screentime galore.

The balcony has a beautiful view of the beach and we watched the sun come up several days - another benefit of having young, early risers. There was lots of space out there, at least 5 chairs and small side table. Plenty of room for us!

Access to the beach was super easy, right past the pool area and down a rubber mat path. There is a side entrance over a bridge, but the direct path is much closer and easier. And really, you are RIGHT on the beach, it’s barely a walk. The pool was heated, between 75-80 degrees, which helped as we went in early May and it was still a bit chilly when the wind rolled in. The pool and jacuzzi are in great condition. There’s a easy stair access on both the shallow and deep ends, helpful for littles.

The front desk staff and maintenance crew were all really friendly and helpful. We were very impressed by this condo and plan to return for a longer trip. Thanks so much Terry and Suntide II!

Weekend getaway

Absolutely loved our stay. Perfect location, great staff members. No issues to report. Three adults and three teenagers, plenty of room for everyone. Very few things you will need to bring. We hate to be leaving tomorrow, we're already planning our next trip!

Wonderful Family Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is beautiful! The kitchen has recently been remodeled and is really quite nice. The staff was very helpful and responsive. Our kids loved the large pool area and the game system, complete with a nice selection of games, provided in the condo. This condo is within a block of a couple of good restaurants and, as others have noted, the view is absolutely fantastic!
