2BR/2BA/Sleeps 6: BEACHFRONT on island, Ocean Balconies, Pool/Hot Tub, WiFi, W/D
Jeff & I went on a vacation to Texas in 2005 to research the idea of moving from the Midwest cold winters to the Galveston-Houston area. We flew to San Antonio and rented a car to make a leisurely drive up the coast from South Padre Island. We made it to Corpus Christi and turned back! South Padre Island had hooked us! The water was bluer and the feel was right. South Padre Island welcomed us with its beauty and warm local charm. In 2007 we moved to Kingsville, Texas. A very cool place but not 'the valley' and not the island. In 2008 we moved to McAllen, Texas -- getting closer! Finally, in 2011 we found our ideal property on South Padre Island. Special thanks goes to Shirley Donahue at Sand Dollar Realty for taking us all over the island several years to look at properties! We love the island and our property. We believe you will too! After all, Life is better on the Beach! ~Verna

Heaven on Earth
This is Heaven on Earth! The view is absolutely priceless! We really enjoyed this place. We brought our own groceries and cooked in the beautiful spacious kitchen. They had everything we needed and more....so cozy and comfortable!
Best view ever!!!
This property is even better than described. The view is awesome from the 2 balconies on the 4th floor. Everything was clean and well stocked. There is even assigned parking. Very close to the beach. We did a last minute check in and Verna was so very helpful to get us into this wonderful property. The beaches were not crowed and the sunrise from balcony was amazing. We will be back to stay again. Thanks Verna for making it all happen.
Will Go Again
We thoroughly enjoyed the location and the property, everything was as described. We would definitely rent it agin.
The condo is beautifully decorated and furniture is very comfortable. Loved the leather swivel chair in the living room! The king bed in master was very cozy and loved being able to lie in bed and watch the waves. We never used the beach chairs or umbrella, but it was nice to have them available. We felt we had the whole complex to ourselves, including the beautiful pool and hot tub. Maybe the little storm Ferdnand kept people away, but the weather was not bad at all, once the showers stopped. Our only issue was when we left around 10 am, we tried to bring the parking tag up to the room and our access no longer worked, even though we had another hour. We just left the tag stuck in the door and notified housekeeping. Not a big deal, but could have been if we had left belongings inside. Would love to return one day and take advantage of discount for return visitors.
Great location, kitchen could use an update
We had a great time and had no real complaints about the property
Enjoyed our stay
Disappointed that we were unable to use the clothes dryer because of some sort of issue it was having
I choose our stay wisely,, and a washer/dryer is a must for me
We were not prepared for that , seeing we need to wash/dry clothes almost every day of our stay due to being at the beach every dayy
We are glad you enjoyed your stay. We are sorry that the dryer went down during your stay. It is up and running again.
Some of our favorite places to take our family are: Sea Turtle Inc, Brownsville Zoo, EcoTours, and dancing at Isla Grand's Quarterdeck. Don't forget Schlitterbahn's water park for the kids.
The Crab Races (FREE!) at the Isla Grand's Quarterdeck on Wednesday nights are positively hilarious!
Super events to try to aim for are Sand Castle Days or Port Isabel's Shrimp Cook Off.
