About Mario & Toni Villarreal

Family who enjoys the clear waters of South Padre and who love to get away from the big city life. And not to mention the outstanding Red and Trout fishing.

Mario & Toni Villarreal purchased this condo in 2012

Why Mario & Toni Villarreal chose South Padre Island

We love South Padre Island, it's the best beach in Texas. We purchased our first condo in 2010 and loved it so much that we decided to buy this one. This beachside condo has made our dream come true and we can't wait to retire on the island. Until that day, we hope everyone who stays in our condo will leave with the same love for South Padre Island as we do.

What makes this condo unique

We enjoy the beautiful views and sound of the ocean waves off our balcony. We wake up to the beautiful morning sunrise and quietness of the resort. The beach is just steps away and we know this place will bring us many good memories.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We were so excited when we walked in the front door of this condo. You would think you walked into a model home. This place had everything you need and more. The view from the balcony was outstanding, you can walk out the patio and sand on the beach in 15 second. That's how close it is...The owners were so nice, they gave us tips on where to eat and things to do. This went a long way since this was our first time to SPI. Without a doubt we will be back and spread the word to all our friends. Thank you Toni and Mario

Best vacation

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time I have stayed at a Villarreal's condo. I had the pleasure to stay in their upper condo a year ago. This new, clean condo was better than my imagination. I felt like I walked into a decor magazine with beautiful furniture and decorations. Everything was new and very comfortable. The kitchen was fully stocked for the cooking I did. This was my first time coming to South Padre during the winter, and it was amazing. I walked the warm beach every morning and witnessed God's glory with the rising sun, which was right off the balcony. It was in 80's almost every day. The balcony of the condo has a beautiful view of the beach and I ate all my meals on it. Who would have thought you could get a tan in January? The two pools were warm and refreshing. The other guest were very friendly and welcoming, who have been coming for several decades. They even said this condo was the nicest at the Tiki. I thought I was in paradise until reality hit and I was forced to go back home to work. To add to it, everyday I had a relaxing shower in the most beautiful shower I have seen. I did leave with new friends to see next year and a relax feeling that I have not felt in any past vacations. I didn't feel like I was at a hotel but a place of my own. And, I know that the Villarreal's want me to treat this as my home. I definitely recommend this condo and plan coming back this summer.

Very beautifully decorated and wonderfully equipped condo.

  • 5 of 5

Owners have put a lot of thought and effort into decorating. Very clean. We had everything we needed. Condo overlooks parking lot but has nice side view of ocean. I am highly allergic and the condo has several glade plug ins and scented candles that caused headaches when we arrived. I put them all in a cupboard for our stay and did fine but may be good to notify host ahead if u have allergies.Beach had red warning and purple venomous sea creatures flags posted. The venemous sea creatures was for jelly fish and after research we learned they are moon jellyfish and their tentacles cannot penetrate human skin. However, if you touch them they are irritating and itchy. You can gauge how bad the jellyfish are in the ocean by how many have washed up on the shore. We boogie boarded every day but on 2 of the day's got out fairly quickly due to excessive jelly fish. The waves were exceptional on a couple of the days and mild the other days but still fun. We saw some complaints about tiki being too close to claytons and noise. We did not have any Clayton noise from this condo and nice to be able to go over and order a drink for the beach if you like. Ate at claytons once and food ok. We really enjoyed the grapevine restaurant for breakfast and lunch and Louie's backyard at sunset on the bay for dinner. We loved our stay! Thank you!!!

This one bedroom, excellently maintained, condo is all you need for an amazing time on South Padre Island. Beautifully furnished, with all the conveniences of home, you are steps from the beach and convenient to everything! Next door to Clayton's, the fireworks on Fri and Sat were spectacular! SOOOO enjoyed our time here, and will be back.

OVER THE TOP

  • 5 of 5

Tim and I have been vacationing in South Padre Texas for the last 5 years. This is the first time we rented from Mario and Toni Villarreal, we usually just call the Tiki and book a room. We are so glad we didnt do that this year and will never again. The condo we stayed in was #3499048, from the minuet we walked through the door our vacation took off to a whole new level. The colors & decor of the condo were welcoming, peaceful and we knew we were at the beach. Being birders, we appreciated the decor so much. The condo is elegant and the kitchen had everything we needed. There is even a de-humidifier. The Villarreals were easy to communicate with and take very good care of their vacationers. We cant say enough about the experience we had on this last vacation. One would think as long as your at the beach, who cares about the accommodations, changed our thinking. We give 10 stars..........

Breathtaking condo!

  • 5 of 5

This is my second time staying at one of the Villarreal's condos. The condo is beautifully decorated and renovated. The location and access to the beach was wonderful. My husband and I, along with our two dogs had a wonderful time; I have recommended the Villarreal's to my family and friends when planning thier next trip to South Padre Island. My husband and I look forward to staying in one of the Villarreal's condos in the future. Thank you to the Villarreal family for allowing us to stay in your wonderful condo.
