About Gil

We are Gil and Barb Morris, from Oakland, NJ, and we visited South Padre Island for the first time in the summer of 2007. We immediately fell in love with SPI and purchased our condo soon after. We have enjoyed many wonderful vacations in our unit since then. Here I'm pictured in front of a sand castle...Barb is behind the camera. No - I can't take credit for this work of art. It was created, along with dozens of other beautiful entires, as part of a sand art contest held one afternoon on the beach This was just one of our many memorable experiences on the island. Visit SPI and make memories of your own.

Gil purchased this condo in 2007

Why Gil chose South Padre Island

Our first visit to SPI was in May of 2007 and by August we were the happy owners of Inverness 504. Our little piece of paradise has given us so many carefree and happy memories. We may be professionals most of the year, but for the few weeks that we stay in our unit, the shoes come off, the bathing suits go on, and we're at home. As the locals say...'no worries.'

What makes this condo unique

By far the single, most unique benefit of Inverness 504 is being able to step outside on the the oversized balcony and watch the waves roll in. The gentle sound of the surf becomes almost hypnotic. There are few rental units on SPI that offer such incredibly close proximity to the ocean, yet with all the comforts of your own front 'porch.'

Windy wintry retreat

  • 5 of 5

The condo was as described with large refrigerator and glass cooktop. There was plenty of small drawer space and a large hutch for other items. We enjoyed the deep balcony, which would be very advantageous in summer, as it is on the east for sunrises, deep to have shade in the mid-day on ard, and it catches the breezes off the gulf. The bed was very comfortable. It is high, so if you are short or old, just be aware. There is flow-through ventilation, but not through the bedroom, which has a stationary window. Lights burn in darkness, and lend a glow in the bedroom. It was decorated beautifully. If only the weather had cooperated! It was nice intermittently about half of January.

Perfect view

  • 5 of 5

Very happy with this condo. The balcony might be the best view on the island. The living room and kitchen are cozy. Bedroom was maybe a bit small but still quite comfortable. Its pretty much in the middle of the island so easy to walk to pubs, and grocery stores. Car was safe behind security gate. Gil the owner was quick to respond to our emails and did everything to make our stay perfect. We will definitely be back!

Cozy Condo, Great Balcony

  • 5 of 5

Even snow on South Padre Island didn't stop us from enjoying Gus' condo and out time in town. It was the first time it snowed there in over 20 years, and everyone in town was just having fun with it. So were we.

The next day temperatures returned to the 60s, so there was great balcony time and walks on the beach. We'll definitely return on our next trip to South Padre.

Would recommend Sea Ranch as a great seafood restaurant. We went on a very cold, rainy, windy night and the atmosphere was wonderful with soft lighting to go with some really good seafood.

Awesome Hideaway!

  • 5 of 5

This Condo was GREAT! Same for its owner Gil! HE was very accommodating and very thorough in his directions and instructions for accessing the Condo. The Condo itself is a 1 bedroom gem! Everything is in proper working order, clean, and comfortable! the balcony was incredible in its size and view of the ocean! Beautiful sunrises every day! One suggestion to Gil is to provide a couple of beach chairs for convinience of renters. But overall, a great condo that I am looking forward to renting out again in the near future! Thank you Gil!
