About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Previous guests have particularly enjoyed: our location; comfortable beds (king beds in both bedrooms); 1100 sq. feet of spacious, well-decorated comfort; well-equipped kitchen; generous storage (pantry and closets); convenient beach access; proximity to premier island restaurants and attractions (i.e. Louis', Laguna Bob's, Tequila Sunset, Painted Marlin on the bay and Boomerang Billy's on the beach). Higher than average ceilings enhance the feeling of spaciousness.

This house originally belonged to one of the early developers of South Padre Island. It was moved off the beach and put up on concrete block stilts. We subsequently added the downstairs apartment.

Owners reserve the upstairs for our own use. Owner management eliminates costly management fees, resulting in competitive rates.

About Lucy Braun

She fell in love with the beach when living in Peru as a child - he in Hawaii. After visiting Texas beaches, one trip to South Padre Island convinced us that this was THE beach for us. As we enjoy our paradise, we believe we have found one of the premier beaches of the world...

Lucy Braun purchased this house in 1998

Why Lucy Braun chose South Padre Island

This property is located in a prime area of the island. Proximity to the beach as well as the bayside and walking distance to many restaurants, shops, and entertainment venues makes this an ideal location.

Perfect and beyond our expectations.

  • 5 of 5

My wife has done so much research to avoid disappointment and a ruined vacation. Once we learned that the owner lives upstairs, we then decided to rent it. Lucy, the owner, responded and answered all our questions. The house in not connected to any other buildings, which provides a private, calm, and peaceful environment: zero disturbance. The inside is spacious, beautiful, and very clean (and more). It is a few minutes walk to the beach. And how wonderful to have your own parking spot! The owners made us feel like a welcomed family and provided all kind of information about the activities and restaurants in the Island. All we had to do was have fun. Choosing this property was the perfect decision, and living in it was beyond our expectations. For our family, this is the place to live, and we are coming back. Thank you so much Lucy and Buzz.

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This is a fantastic place to stay. Every pratical utensil you need to cook is in the kitchen. Beds are super comfy. Owners are upstairs & available for recommending things to do or places to eat. The house is off the main road which is nice there is less traffic. The beach may be a 3 minutes stroll. When we return to SPI, we will stay!

Great Place in South Padre -- Wonderful Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We loved this place! Comfortable, quiet, with easy access to the beach and to the bay. Close to the beach and many restaurants. Outdoor shower and off-street parking a big plus. Kitchen has everything you need to cook and was spotless. Guestbook in the living room very informative about local activities and restaurants. Owner also made helpful recommendations about where we could go dancing. (We love to dance! If you do too, go to Wink's) We went snorkeling, horseback-riding, and hiking. Visited the Turtle Rescue and Birding Centers, and more. The convenient location made all of this possible. As an earlier reviewer stated, photos do not do justice to how lovely and spacious the condo is. Would definitely stay here again!

Ready to go back

  • 5 of 5

This is by far my favorite place to stay while in SPI. Location is very convenient love the walking distance to the beach, shops, & restaurants. Fireworks show is a bonus right outside the condo. The condo itself is very clean, bedrooms are comfortable, living room is very spacious, kitchen has the necessities needed to cook. Lucy made everything so easy to book the condo & Susan is a huge help. Looking forward to many other stays in this condo. I will definatley recommend this condo to my family and friends.

Owner's Response: We, too, love the fireworks! They are actually shot off over the bay, about a block and a half to the bay end of our street, but we have a perfect spot for viewing them. Every Thursday and Friday at 9:15, from Memorial Day weekend to Labor Day, we are anticipating enjoying them! And the three summer holidays they have an extra and extra special show! We are always delighted to hear positive comments and appreciation of our "little piece of paradise", and we look forward to return visitors.

Car: recommended

Our property is about a half block to the beach and a block and a half to the 'Entertainment District' on the bay. The entertainment available includes Gravity Park, miniature golf, go karts, and several bars and restaurants. The sunsets are glorious from the bay side, and summer fireworks (Memorial Day weekend to Labor Day weekend) can be seen from the end of our driveway every Thursday and Friday evenings at 9:15 over the bay. Entertainment available from various locations includes Schlitterbahn Water Park, dolphin and Eco tours, horseback riding, parasailing, jet skiing, Sea Turtle, Inc., the Birding Center to name a few. Or, many visitors choose to simply enjoy the beautiful beach and then relax in your spacious living area.
