About Marcela Barrera

We built this house to enjoy with family and friends as a summer home. Plan on living it partially after retirement. Until then, we can share it with others and spread the good vibe we get when we go there.

Marcela Barrera purchased this house in 2008

Why Marcela Barrera chose Gulf Coast

We just fell in love with the sights, the golf and fishing. The lovely community was a bonus we got to know later.

What makes this house unique

The spacious entertaining areas and the breathtaking sunrises will make you want to return.

The house was just beautiful. Quiet, clean, full of entertainment. The fishing dock was PERFECT for all the fishing enthusiasts. The view of the fireworks at night was breathtaking. Very nice home. Thank you for letting us share your home.

Weeken Getaway

  • 4 of 5

My family and I were very pleased with the house. We were looking for a place for my immediate family to come and spend some quality time together since we all live in different locations. We enjoyed our weekend and I will definitely acquire the place again in the future.

Beautiful, Roomy Home

  • 5 of 5

The house was more than i expected, it was perfect for medium sized families. It furnished everything we needed all we had to bring was food. My kids lived in the pool. If we come back to South Padre i would recommend.

Peaceful Get-away

  • 5 of 5

This home is nestled in a quiet neighborhood with beautiful views of the lake. The property is well maintained and provided many activities to keep our family entertained. There is a very clean park across the house, fishing from a private pier, a pool table for late night competitions and last but not least the beautiful sunsets from the back patio or the relaxing time in the pool. Our family thoroughly enjoyed our time at this house.

Good Choice For a Quiet Vacation Spot Near SPI

  • 5 of 5

This house provided a great place for my family and some friends to stay. The view from the east side of the house offers a wonderful view of the bay. We felt the location was very convenient both for visiting South Padre Island and for stopping by some spots on the mainland that we wanted to visit. The house was well stocked and we experienced no problems of any type there during our stay. The owner checked with us via email and phone several times (both before and during our stay) to see if we had any problems so I'd have to recommend this house a really great place for anyone to spend some vacation time.

A complete vacation in one house!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I enjoyed our stay at this gorgeous Laguna Vista home. I fished about 14 hours a day right from the backyard pier and off my canoe. The pier features a lowering ramp so you can adjust for low and high tides. My kids never got tired of the swimming pool and even sat in the adjacent hot tub every once-in-a-while.

My mom has trouble with her knees but she didn't have to climb any stairs! We set her up in a poolside cabana with her own facilities where she enjoyed her privacy watched her grandkids swim.

My wife and I indulged in a massive master suite with a king-size bed with a world-class view of the bay. It was very cool!

The kitchen was awesome--we hosted a party and easily cooked all the food we needed with the full set of cooking supplies.

There's so much to describe that we enjoyed but my highlights included the *COLD* A/C, the full-sized pool table, from-the-backyard fishing and quick access to the local HEB grocery store and Walmart. The neighborhood is super quiet with a police station nearby and a great park with a covered basketball court right across the street.

I can't wait to go back!

South Padre Island

Spectacular view of South Padre Island and sunrise. Across the street from Roloff Park and public transportation stop. 15-20 minutes from SPI and Brownsville it is strategically located to enjoy the fun and shopping without the inconveniences and the crowds. One good drive-shot away from SPI golf course, it enjoys the lovely ambiance of a most welcoming community. Bird watcher's paradise even from the living room's view window. Fishermen can park their own boat in the house's own dock. Two blocks away from public library, 3 blocks away from church.
