Why Dianne MacKie chose South Padre Island

We love Villa Del Sol because of it's charm. The location by the pool and spa is PERFECTION! The sound of the surf from the patio in the evenings, the cool breezes, the incredible quiet and the rustling of the palms - it just doesn't get any better than that! The complex is quiet, friendly and well maintained. The palm trees are spectacular, over 50 on our property alone, the most on the Island! Laying by the pool, or soaking in the hot tub and looking at the stars is pretty perfect! We LOVE South Padre Island, Texas.

Immaculate, adorable and so close to the beach!

  • 5 of 5

Immaculate and cute condo that’s a short walk to the beach. It’s super clean and well-cared for, as is the property. It’s also great that it backs up to the pool. It’s perfect for a fun and relaxing getaway! I will go back to this condo every season.

Perfect! Beautiful and relaxing vacation.

  • 5 of 5

The condo and grounds were absolutely beautiful! First of all, I felt like the owner was a FRIEND because she was so attentive, professional ,and detailed! Her communication was excellent, and she was available before and during the rental by email or text. She provided personal recommendations and detailed documentation about the condo in a book on the counter. All questions were answered there ,as well as lists of activities to do and local places to eat. We tried them all! The condo is beautifully updated and decorated. The porch is peaceful with the pool and hot tub only steps away. It feels like your own private pool! The complex is quiet and has an on site manager, although we didn’t need a thing! The beach, only a long block away, was clean, clear, and refreshing. We either loaded up the provided wagon with umbrellas, towels, even ice chests(also all provided), or just took our truck to the beach access area. It was very easy and relaxing. The owners also provide a gas grill as well as every utensil we possibly needed. These owners have thought of absolutely everything to make our stay enjoyable! We cannot wait to visit again and I have already recommended it to all my friends! Thank you, Dianne!

Great location and condo!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in so many different places in South Padre. We love this one a lot because it's close to a beach entrance and the condo is set up really nice. The teenagers had their own room with XBox and the parents had their own room with master bathroom that includes a nice, big shower. The owner is great and very responsive to guests. The kitchen is fully stocked. The patio that leads to the pool is so nice and relaxing...wish I would've had my coffee out there more often. The pool is nice. It's a quiet, small complex which we enjoyed. We walked to Burger Fi and the local coffee/ice cream shop Cafe Karma.

My only suggestion is that you bring a smaller car, not a big truck. :) We had a difficult time parking our truck in the small parking lot. It's not a complaint, just reference for future guests so they can plan accordingly. There is street parking but limited due to reserved spaces and towing areas, just read signs and follow the rules and you will be fine in parking your vehicle if you can't use the assigned parking space.

This was our first visit to SPI. All of the reviews of this condo were spot on. Anything and everything you need for a great vacation was located in Dianne and Jim's condo. We will definitely be returning to SPI and this condo.
