About The Owner

I'm originally from Cuba, but had lived in the US for more than 50 years. I'm a painter, have written 7 books in Spanish and English (History, poetry, adventure, biography, humor, etc.) and like to sing accompanied by my guitar. I am now retired, residing in Brownsville, very close to South Padre Island.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2010

Why The Owner chose South Padre Island

GULF VIEW is just a few blocks from the bridge; very close to downtown and the best restaurants and shopping.

What makes this condo unique

Just across the street from the beach. The condo is right in front of the pool and surrounded with tropical plants and flowering shrubs. It is, undoubtedly, the most beautiful of the whole complex. It displays exquisite pieces of decoration and the walls exhibit a collection of fine oil paintings by the owner.

Perfect accomodations in South Padre!

  • 5 of 5

We were only able to stay here for 4 days, but we very much enjoyed our stay here. The owner is very accommodating and friendly. This condo has a great location, right across the street from the beach. It is safe and secure, spacious, clean, and very well kept. Includes updated decor and appliances, two private bedrooms and bathrooms, large living area and dining areas. And the owner has his own beautiful artwork decorating the condo. Great for families!

Simply the best place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is fabulous! The condos up to date furnishings and complete set of amenities made us feel instantly at home. Having the pool just steps from the back porch allowed for the kids to run out for a quick dip without us parents having to go far. With the beach access directly across the street it was easy to go to and from the beach multiple times each day to meet everyone's beach going needs. Jay was very nice when he greeted us at the door and gave us an overview of the rental. He was also easy to work work with in setting the reservation and meeting our needs. We would definitely come back again on any future trips to the area.

The only caution I have is that the details in the paperwork did not add up. The confirmation due amount was significantly less than what was actually due so we had to incur unexpected ATM fees in order to pay the unexpected higher total, so recommend that you triple check the total includes the rent, taxes and cleaning fees correctly on the confirmation before getting the final payment ready for delivery upon arrival. Otherwise this rental is phenomenal and I highly recommend it!

Secure, right across from the beach,home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for the week and it was just perfect. The security of the gate to all condos was very welcoming, as the island can be a frenzy of young people with too much alcohol on board. This back door is 5 steps away from the pool (not heated) and the hot tub with plenty of chairs. Directly across the street is a walkway to the beach. The location is really terrific. The condo has all amenities you would need, including a gas grill on the back patio. The photos are exactly what it looks like. Jay greeted us too with a fruit basket and tour of condo, numbers in case of emergency, list of restaurants etc. We ate out once as I love to cook, went to Sea Ranch. The food was good (not stellar) but quite pricey, I'm sure you could do better. I would highly recommend doing the horseback riding on the beach with Island Adventures, an excellent outing. We rented a tandem bike from Beach bikes on Padre, rent for 24 hours for $30 and $20 for single, definitely recommend, they pick up and deliver to your place. The original dolphin watch was great, saw many dolphin and the sea turtle hospital too, all very good! Thanks for a relaxing week.

Amazing Condo

  • 5 of 5

We were greeted by Jay who couldn't be friendlier. He had a basket of fruit for us and went over all amenities the condo provided. The back porch literally leads to the pool and hot tub and if you walk to the left there is a beach access across the street. My husband and I were more than impressed with the price, location and condo. We have a 2 and 3 year old so we would literally wake up go to the beach walk back at noon for lunch and their nap and then walk back to the beach. Everything was perfect. there was a coffee maker, washer and dryer, pans, all cooking utensils, I mean this place had everything. have found our go to beach condo for our future summers!!! If you can book this place you won't regret it!!

Fun and Easy Adult Group Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This weekend was excellent in every way! Jay greeted us with a nice bottle of wine and a tour of the condo,. The rooms were very nicely decorated with new or almost new furniture and beds and Jay's own artwork of beach scenes. The home easily kept all six of us very comfortable, The condo is in the best location as it is right off the pool which made it so easy to haul our stuff to and from the beach. This is definitely our favorite place to stay on the island! Thank you, Jay
