About Irma Villarreal

Mario and I have been married for 47 years. We were both born and raised in South Texas. We have two wonderful children and six very special grandchildren. In 1972 we moved away from South Texas for 25 years. Those years took us to Houston, Austin, Waco, Guadalajara and Aguascientes. Now we are finally back home to stay! We currently live in Arroyo City, a small, sleepy fishing community. We love our home and our neighbors, but we also wanted to spend more time at our South Padre Island paradise. A condo was the perfect solution.

Irma Villarreal purchased this condo in 2013

Why Irma Villarreal chose Gulf Coast

Because we love the beach, we decided to purchase a condo at The Tiki. It was one of the best decisions we have ever made. The condos are well kept, beautifully landscaped and include two gorgeous, heated pools. Our condo is located steps away from the pool but also its location lends itself to all the privacy you could want. We welcome the opportunity to share our 'home away from home' with you!

What makes this condo unique

Fortunately for us, the condo has been recently renovated by the previous owners. It has a gorgeous modern kitchen with brand new appliances and comes fully equipped. The living room has a built in TV . The bedroom has a brand new king size bed, headboard and mattress and the furnishings are brand new as are all the linens and bedspread. The room is ample and comfortable. The bathroom is also newly renovated and the shower is equipped with handrails. All towels are new.

Great property.

Very nice, the reviews are a great indicator of what you will experience. No point in repeating what so many others have already said.

Cosy and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We stayed the month of March during spring break it was great! Very crowed time of year for the entire Island but not so much at The Tiki. The Condo room is tucked back away from the main area with very beautiful flowering trees and a very nice tiled patio with a fan. The inside is very comfortable and is exactly like the pictures. They have stocked the kitchen perfectly with every thing needed and the bathroom with towels . One could show up with food, suitcase and personal items and be set. The pools are both set in beautiful flower gardens a few steps to the first pool . The ocean beach is very nice and there are several things todo on the Island. There are activities and restaurants with in walking distance also there is a free bus that travels on the Island and around the near by city's . The owners are very kind and wonderful to rent from. We would enjoy staying here in the future. Loved every moment

Beach Cottage :-)

  • 5 of 5

My spouse and I were torn about whether to spend our weekend getaway in Fredericksburg or at SPI. Walking into Irma's condo we got a little bit of both. It was like walking into a cottage in the hill country. Pictures do it absolutely no justice. Clean. Beautiful. Decorated so beautifully. She truly has impeccable taste. Well stocked (with dishes, towels, wagon, beach toys, wicker mats, pool noodles and boogie boards). No need to carry any extras, because she has it available. Her accessibility was amazing. As we were unloading our suitcases, our twins locked us out and she immediately had a maintenance worker open the door for us. Her son checked in on us to ask if everything was to our liking and dropped off a bag of ice. I highly recommend and cannot wait to return this coming summer, not only with our children, but for a little romantic weekend getaway.

Therefore, we are available to our renters 24/7. Whether they get locked out of the condo or just need suggestions on restaurants--we're here to help and to make your vacation memorable. We look forward to welcoming you this summer!

Clean, modern and conveniently located SPI condo

  • 5 of 5

First off, the owner (Irma) is amazingly responsive to questions about her property and also has a wealth of knowledge of the area. The condo was by far the best we have stayed at in many years as it was extremely clean, very modern, and tastefully decorated. The location of the condo was perfect: 15 steps away from a back corner of a secure parking lot, and we always had our same parking spot for 2 weeks straight. This made it easy as pie with carrying groceries, luggage, etc. We were 30 steps away from an 83 degree heated pool that was incredibly clean and oh so relaxing. The grounds were also impeccably clean, lush and very tranquil. The beach was a couple minute walk through a secure access and the fishing right in front of the property is pretty darn good. The condo was also conveniently located right across the road from the Sea Turtle Rescue and the Birding Center. Everyone we talked to on the property was incredibly friendly and oh so relaxed. Our time spent in or around the condo was so relaxing and when our two weeks were up, we had no motivation to leave and go back to the subzero temps that were awaiting us at home in MN. We will definitely be back!

The Tiki complex is beachfront. No need to cross any streets to access the beach. Our condo is located a quick 2 minute stroll from the beach. This non-smoking one bedroom, one bath condo has a new fully equipped kitchen. Fall asleep and wake up to the soothing ocean breeze and an amazing sunrise. The large fully furnished balcony is a great place to entertain and enjoy your stay in a more private setting. The condominium complex has two large pools that are heated during the winter.
