About Caroline Sullivan

I grew up in Houston, but haven't lived in Texas for a while. My husband and I came to the island to give him a rest and fell in love with it. When we drive over the causeway on our way home there is a definite sadness to be leaving a place so beautiful.

Caroline Sullivan purchased this house in 2001

Why Caroline Sullivan chose South Padre Island

This place is so beautiful and there is so much to do here. But it isn't necessary to do anything except watch the waves and the sun setting over the bay.

What makes this house unique

Our house doesn't look like much on the outside, but inside it's a paradise. I like to cook so I fell in love with the kitchen. My husband likes to work (yes, he still works) in the sunroom where he can watch everyone walking to the beach. We both love the hot tub that's a part of the pool in the private back yard. And we love being so close to the beach just across the street.

Great property and location!

  • 5 of 5

This spacious house was shared by four adults so lots of room. The pool and the beach (just across the street) were terrific. A large kitchen made it easy for everyone to cook, nosh and clean up. The owner's guidebook gave information about the house and recommendation for SPI dining, things to do, and shopping hints.

Awesome house!

  • 5 of 5

I own a timeshare, and I have stayed at many vacation rentals all over and this house was by far the best rental! The house is large; with eight people we had plenty of room to spread out. The kitchen is supplied with everything you could ever need. The pool was amazing. The beach is less than a block away. We will definitely rent here again. Convenience, comfort and cleanliness!!!

Nice Property

  • 4 of 5

The house was very nice. It could do with some TLC (tender loving care) and updating a bit. The master suite bathroom was fantastic - the shower was to die for. The kitchen was also very nice and made cooking a pleasure. The improvements should include new flooring around the pool, new TVs in the bedrooms and a BBQ in the yard. We actually purchased a BBQ and left it there for the next people!

Overall it was a very nice property and our stay was very good. We would definitely stay there again if we return to SPI again as the location and facilities was excellent.

Loved the house, it was perfect for my family. We spent a whole week and enjoyed it very much. The pool was great and we enjoyed spending time there. The beach was only a block away and very convenient for us. Would go back in a heart beat!

We have been going to south padre for the past 5 years and this place by far has been the best place . I recommend it . If you want a nice place and your very own pool , then this is the place. Very close to tge beach . We plan on hopefully staying there from now on.

The World Birding Center is located on the island. This wonderful place not only features the birds, but all the eco systems of this part of the country. There is also a wonderful sea turtle rescue where they give talks about the turtles that are there. If you are here when they lay their eggs you can go to the beach to see them hatch and return to the sea. The Atascosa Wildlife Preserve is only a few miles away. There are too many restaurants to name, beach front bars with music and lots of music all over the island. You can even sky dive if you are so inclined.
