About Luis Torres

We are working professionals that live in the suburbs outside of Houston. We have one son and one daughter.

Luis Torres purchased this house in 2012

Why Luis Torres chose South Padre Island

Our family is from the Valley so it was only natural for us to purchase a place of our own in South Padre Island.

Las Ventanas is our home away from home. My family enjoys coming to the Island to relax and have a good time. When we can't make it to the Duplex, we love renting it out to people who also want to enjoy all that South Padre Island has to offer.

What makes this house unique

The South Padre Island is a great place to enjoy the brown sugar beaches and beautiful turquoise water. Our place has the amenities and seclusion for a great vacation. Its also fun to enjoy the many activities in near by Brownsville and Harlingen.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great time at your beach house at 106 e redsnapper. The place was clean and very comfortable. Hope to deal with you again.

  • 5 of 5

It has a really good home atmosphere, very close to the beach and the store! Property Manager is the BEST, whenever we had a problem she came in no time to fix it or help is out. And Luis, always answered his phone when I called and gave the best response even though he wasnt in SPI! Will book AGAIN!!

Great condo!

  • 4 of 5

Info from booking & prior to stay was well informed. Easy to get ahold of the landlord to ask questions. Condo was a great space for 4 families, plenty of room! Some of the kitchen tools and bedroom things may need to be upgraded soon. Pool and backyard was a great size to hang out, however there was a lot of clorine. Beach was just a short walk away, with a easy walkable access. Would stay again!

  • 3 of 5

Not good for 10 to 14 people.

Pool was nice to have after all the trash was cleaned out and filter ran.

We had to wash the dishes before we could use them . Located next to grocery store which was convenient but noisy early in am.

We love the Island! People are friendly! Luis is very nice and responded quickly to the main concerns.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the feedback. Sorry to hear of your inconveniences The duplex has five rooms and two air mattresses that will accommodate 14 people with double occupancy. The kitchen ware and chairs will easy be addressed. The pool is cleaned prior to each guest arrival but the Island can be a windy place and debris can make its way into the pool.

The house is close enough to the beach maybe 5 min walk. In the mornings and evenings in June anyway the mosquitos are terrible so spray down before a walk on the beach. The grocery store next door was loud in the morning with deliverys but the convenience of it being close out weighed that to our family.

Great location, convenient

  • 3 of 5

My friends and I stayed here during the week mid-May, and we enjoyed it for the most part. The house was clean and check-in/check-out was pretty easy. We enjoyed that it was next to the grocery store so if we needed to pick up anything, we could walk around the corner and grab little things. The beach is only about a 5 minute walk down the road with some great scenery along the way. The house itself has a lot of privacy from the other homes around it, so that was also very nice.

There were 11 of us total, so we had both the upstairs and downstairs portions rented out. There was plenty of room for people to relax and sleep (although a couple of people ended up on the couches). There was enough space for people to enjoy their stay without it being too crowded in the house. The stairs are located on the outside of the unit, which was strange to us, but not enough to affect our stay. I'm assuming it's for if two separate parties rent the spaces out.

A couple things we didn't like. The pool didn't seem to be well-treated, to the point where we were questioning when the last time was that chlorine tablets had been put in or the filtration system was checked; the first day we arrived, it was quite warm, not very refreshing (it does get quite a bit of sun all day, so this is a factor). There was also a film on top of the water, what looked to be sun screen? We skimmed out the leaves and debris as best we could, but the entirety of our stay, the water felt mucky, so we didn't spend too much time in the water.

The walls seem to also be paper thin; we could hear nearly everything that was happening in the next room, upstairs, downstairs, the bathroom, and even outside. It didn't make for a very restful trip. This bumped my score down a lot.

Overall, we loved the house itself, it's easy access to the beach and the grocery store. We didn't like the pool and the noise-level. Might look into another stay if we have a large group again go to South Padre in the future, but also checking other options.
