Alta Vista is a beautifully restored historical property built in 1931. Constructed of timber, masonry and stucco, it is similar to many buildings in Old Mexico from that time period with it's Colonial style, arched entries, private covered porches and courtyard.
Our family purchased the property in 2003 which had been neglected for many years and began a complete authentic restoration. The structure has been completely renovated and most of the original features preserved including the beautiful oak flooring, exterior masonry and doors.
The property has been modernized to with central air conditioning, on-demand hot water, satellite TV, WI-FI internet and swimming pool.
The kitchens and bathrooms feature beautiful talavera tile and saltillo tile floors which we brought with us from trips to Central Mexico.
This Apartment has a comfortable queen size bed and futon in the living room. All bed tops are freshly laundered before your arrival. You have the convenience of a furnished kitchen.
Outside you will find lush tropical gardens, the courtyard swimming pool, lounge chairs and umbrellas. There is an outside kitchen with a wood burning churrascaria style barbecue, gas grill, fish fryer and bar.
There is a cool breezeway with rocking chairs and a hammock for relaxing. On cool evenings you can enjoy the warm glow of an outdoor fireplace by the pool. The private coin operated laundry is handy for those on extended stay.
We can offer suggestions for all types of activities, restaurants, directions and points of interest. We know Port Isabel, South Padre Island, and the Rio Grande Valley very well and gladly share our knowledge of the area to enhance your stay.
**IMPORTANT NOTE, PLEASE READ** COLLECTION OF HOTEL/MOTEL (LODGING) CITY TAX
As of April 1, 2019, Homeaway was advised that they can no longer collect the lodging tax imposed by the city, however, they are working on getting this issue resolved as quickly as possible. There has always been a mandatory collection of 12% Hotel Occupancy tax, for both state and the city of Port Isabel. We, as the host, must still collect the city of Port Isabel's 6% and remit that to the city for each rental, as before, but we must do it with a separate invoice generated after the booking. You will receive this payment request/invoice after you have booked. It isn't costing you more than before. This is what has always been collected but we just have to do it differently now, until they have this resolved. We apologize for this inconvenience.
