About Belinda

Belinda and Patrick live in the mountains of Colorado. We are avid hikers, climbers, bicyclists, skiers, and, of course, windsurfers. Now we own a horse!

Belinda purchased this Condo in 2004

Why Belinda chose South Padre Island

The beaches are beautiful, and the windsurfing, fishing, and birdwatching are excellent. The condo is perfectly appointed from the furniture and appliances to the granite countertops and the cooking utensils.

What makes this Condo unique

Our morning walks on the beach, windsurfing straight out the door, and a glass of wine watching the sunsets from our balcony - an unobstructed view to the west over Laguna Madre.

                                                                        This place is wonderful. Beautifully decorated, well appointed, quiet, stunning view, and very comfortable. I am quiet particular about the comfort of the beds and like a place that has warmth but is also user friendly. We like to cook and we had everything we needed. Appliances were top notch and each room had a television. Cable and wifi worked perfectly. Towels were even great. We have stayed in over 8 places at this condominium complex and this one is our new favorite. Owners were helpful and available when we needed to ask questions.

                                                                        Owner's Response:

                                                                        We are glad that you spent happy times at Tierra Encantada 303 on your family holiday. We want the condo to be part of a good holiday and thank you for saying that this one is. Makes us happy & proud.

                                                                        When we go on vacation we like to optimize the likelihood of having a really good time, laughing a lot, and not suffering inconveniences at the place we're staying.

                                                                        We appreciate that you noticed the details - like the kitchen conveniences & the towels! :-) Thank you for taking the time to write this review.

                                                                        Tina S.

                                                                        Stayed at the Tierra Encantada 303 and it was great! Nice and clean and beautifully decorated. Belinda and Patrick are the best at making sure their guests are very well taken care of. I LOVED sitting on the deck watching the birds, the boats, the parasailers, the kayakers, but most of all the gorgeous sunsets! This condo is nice and quiet if you're needing to get away from it all, yet not far at all from the beach. We enjoyed fishing off the dock. It's right outside your window! We loved being right on the water! I would gladly stay here again. We very much appreciate Belinda and Patrick sharing their wonderful place with us!

                                                                        Owner's Response:

You list many of our favorite things about staying and being there, too. Being right on the WATER FRONT of Laguna Madre, with the sights and feel, with views from the kitchen, dining room, and living room right out to the BIG WATER. Being right ON THE WATER brings endless entertainment and a lot of personal peace. And the amenities! Fishing from the dock, boat slips, pool, rig your windsurfing gear and leave it, a place to park your bike, the beach 3 blocks away. We look forward to your return as our guests. Thank you.

                                                                        Owner's Response:

We are delighted that you enjoyed our condo & had such a terrific time on the Island. You have a beautiful family - thank you for sharing some photos.

                                                                        Perfect for us

Veranda is great for watching water sports, fishing, crusing boats and even doulphins. Serene setting is only short walk to Gulf's pounding surf. Condo very well appointed and tasteful. Owners are very proud of this wonderful condo and work to see that users enjoy it. Highly recommended for all. We stayed for the month of March 2014 and our hope is that we can someday return to SPI and get this condo again. Thank you Belinda and Patrick

My husband, Patrick, and I are delighted to read that you both this pleased with Tierra Encantada 303, right on Laguna Madre. It does make for easy bird watching being right on the water like this. We love the place.

                                                                        I continue to be amused by your calling the view "Bird T.V.". :-). We now switch channels between bird, boat and windsurfer T.V.
