About Sharon Tamez

My husband and I are retired and love to travel, but our favorite place to be is South Padre Island. The water is beautiful and the beaches are clean. We could go anywhere, but prefer to be on our balcony at the island.

Sharon Tamez purchased this house in 2009

Why Sharon Tamez chose South Padre Island

The choice to buy on South Padre Island was an easy one. The island has the atmosphere of a tourist resort. Many people can be seen strolling the main street up and down the island and when they get tired of strolling they can rent a bicycle or hop on the free shuttle and ride back to our house near the beach.

What makes this house unique

Our house is cozy yet the open floor plan also makes it feel roomy. With the full size washer and dryer inside the condo, it is never an unpleasant job getting your wet towels and suits ready for the next trip down to the beach. Just a few days in our house can make it feel like your home away from home.

Comfortable and Convenient

  • 4 of 5

Sharon was a great hostess. She sent us lots of good information ahead of time, including good instructions on getting in and beach access. We appreciated being able to include our four-legged friends on this trip. We also appreciated restaurant recommendations and information about SPI.

Excellent choice for South Padre!

  • 5 of 5

I'm writting this detailed review because it was other peoples review of the house that helped me choose this place for our family vacation in SPI. The house is awesome, just as described. The owner Sharon is VERY communicative from your first contact with her with any inquires. I booked over a month in advance and wrote her several times as we got closer to arriving and she always replies very quickly. There is 3 bedrooms, one has a balcony where you can see ocean off of. It has a queen bed in there but the bathroom is outside the door in the hall. The room directly across from it is slightly smaller but has a 1/2 bath in it and also where the washer/dryer is. The master bedroom has a king bed and a full bath. The kitchen and dining area are open and look out in the living room. Its very well laid out. There is a balcony off the living room which also has a view of the ocean. The kitchen has everything you need just like home. I mean everything....more than you might even think. There is enough dinnerware, pots, bowls, silverware to serve a small army in there. Bring K-CUPS for your coffee. There is a TV in every room with cable. There is also WIFI in the great and fast, we had 5 IPhones using it at once. There is lots of boards games in the master room dresser to play. There was plenty of wash cloths, towels etc for all of us. Lots of parking in the driveway if you need it, we had three cars there no problem. There is a shower downstairs in the carport as well to clean up after coming back from the beach...NICE TOUCH! The house has central air conditioning, it works amazing, it was 100 degrees when we were there outside and the house was a chilly 72. The kitchen is very modern looking, has a dishwasher, big fridge, and nice stove. There is an icemaker in the fridge that works great for making drinks and sodas etc. It wont fill your big ice chest but it fine for all the drinks you could possible enjoy. There is vase in the kitchen with a bunch of wine corks with family names and dates they stayed there, throw yours in there as well! The BBQ is down stairs. Its uses coal and its not big but can do several steaks or burgers...they have utensils for it. My only recommendation to Sharon for this entire vacation home is to get a bigger one that uses propane. If you want an awesome house to stay at for vacation, you found it right here. It really worked out well for us! We would definitely stay here again no questions asked.

Just great place!!!

  • 5 of 5

Staying in this charming "beach house" made my birthday visit perfect! The amenities are exactly as described, what is not described is the ambiance! Staying at this beach house is the total experience-from décor to location. The owner, Sharon, was right on with all of her suggestions as to what to do on the island, and frosting on the cake: it was sand castle days! I will definitely want to return to the island and stay again in this total package home.

Best 4th of July Vacation Ever!!!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for letting us rent your beautiful Beach House. We had the best 4th of July vacation ever. Just steps to the beach, local store, restaurants "priceless". Your house is so nicely decorated and clean. Also giving us all the information in advance about the area helped us immensely. We loved the fact that we were always able to communicate with you from beginning to end. Wonderful customer service. We went deep sea fishing and had a local restaurant cook our 17 inch red snappers for us, we took the kids para-sailing, rented bikes, sat by the beach at the end of the day with the kids and the dogs, jogged along the beach, sat on the balcony and watched fireworks .. it was a perfect vacation!! "we were able to relax and embraced our beach life".

Great place for our family and pets!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time in this rental property. Love it! The place is big, 3 bedrooms, washer/dryer, clean, 1/2 block from the beach and minutes from main road and restaurants. Most importantly, this is one of the few places that will take our large dog. Sharon, the owner will walk you through the rental agreement, amenities, etc. Highly recommended.
