About Kim Kirby

I am an Alaskan residents and run a summer vacation home and fishing adventures on Pennock Island near Ketchikan. I really enjoy life on the water; there are no roads on the island and everyday running about involves a boat ride. I enjoy the outdoor life and spend summers fishing, kayaking and landscaping my five acre property.

Kim Kirby purchased this condo in 2012

Why Kim Kirby chose Port Isabel

I looked at a lot of properties and was really taken with this one. The layout after you enter the gate centers around the water and the residents are very welcoming. We met several renters who have been coming back to Oyster Cove for 14 years. It seems to have a special atmosphere here of a small community rather than an anonymous block of buildings. Residents hang out at the pool and sometimes offer a fish fry BBQ to which all are invited.

I love the opportunities this area offers to spend on the water, fishing, kayaking and exploring. I am used to small and friendly communities and Port Isabel is no exception. The area has a lot to offer both on the water and off, and the cost of living is really low.

The property really fits my water living lifestyle and I love the ability to walk or bike to all the local amenities.

What makes this condo unique

Right on the water with great views and fishing right out the door.

Great vacation condo.

  • 5 of 5

Loved the condo and lo cation on the water with lots of birds to watch. Condo was even better than described - has a brand new bed in the master bedroom. Kim was friendly and accommodating and the condo complex was quiet and clean. We loved Port Isabel - the area is marvelous for birding and fishing. I would highly recommend this condo if you are looking in this area.

Best Condo ever

  • 5 of 5

The condo was perfect !! My son, girlfriend and I enjoyed our stay to the fullest !!! Everything was as listed and even better, down to the high quality cookware. The washer and dryer was a big plus after long days of fishing. All the residents were friendly and overly helpful. The pool area and hot tub was outstanding for group meetings. We will be back for sure !! Thanks Kim !!

Cute condo convenient for all our need.

  • 5 of 5

I really liked the little condo. The kitchen was better equipped than I had expected from past rental experiences at other places. All the linens were of good quality. Having the W/D was very convenient so as not to stink up the place with dank fishy ocean odors. The complex was quiet even though it was spring break. The rental being dog friendly made it easier to plan the trip. Initially, we were going to bring a dog if we found no one to take care of him, but everything worked out. It was just a load off our minds. Having the boat ramp so close and being able to park the boat right outside the unit was a HUGE convenience. The complex also had fish cleaning stations and a boat wash area.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to review! Personally I cannot stand rentals with funky kitchenware and bad knives so I am glad you appreciated the kitchen!

Texas has some secrets.

  • 5 of 5

What a treat to stumble onto beautiful beaches, ethnic diversity, big city fun and laid back quiet all within a few minutes from the door and under the big sky of Texas. One of the best kept secrets are the beautiful warm Gulf Coast beaches, the other little secret is this comfy condo on the water with boats, bird watching, barbecue, huge pool, hot tub and headquarters for treasured memories. The condo is cute, the beds are comfortable, kitchen is convenient, the aminities are first class, it is safe, easily accessible to everything you need including beaches and entertainment. Don't think twice. If you are coming to Port Isabel, this is the place to stay. If you are thinking of vacationing, consider the gulf of Texas.

Nice condo

  • 3 of 5

Apartment was clean, slight mildew smell on arrival. After the first day, we didn't smell it anymore. The kitchen is nice and well equipped, we were not without all the amenities of home. The recliner is comfortable and easy to relax in. The couch is easily the most comfortable bed in the house. The beds are quite firm and could be replaced with something a bit softer. My wife ended up sleeping on the couch due to this. All in all, I give it 7\10.

Owner's Response: Eric, Thank you for your feedback. We work hard to make sure our guests have a great stay with us. We have gone through the apartment with our cleaning crew and have not found any mildew. I do know that if the place has been closed up for a couple of weeks then it gets a little stuffy before the ac is kicked on. In future we will try to have that on and running before guests arrive.

Nice quiet condo! The owner was very nice and gave us great instructions. The sheets, towels, and condo supplies were of high quality. We would definitely return. We also utilized and enjoyed the boat slip and the nice sized pool.

South Padre Island
Car: recommended

Port Isabel is a network of waterways and homes that look out over the Gulf and the inner channels. It is a small tight knit and very friendly community offering small seafood restaurants, boutiques stores and shopping. A must see is the visitor center and the Port Isabel Lighthouse which dates back to the 1500's. The wonderful beach of South Padre and the Isla Blanca fishing pier is a short three mile drive away over the causeway.
