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 South Padre Island

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.

Exceptionally clean, private, quiet, family and dog friendly

  • 5 of 5

We wanted a quiet vacation during the 4th of July weekend. As hard as it may be to believe that it is possible to find the peace on SPI on the 4th, we did find it at Irma's place. Absolutely loved the location of the Tiki Apartments (next to Clayton's, across from Birding Center and lovely sunsets on the bay) and Irma's apartment itself (the back of the building full of greenery) . We had a complete privacy and enjoyed the quite stay in light of the busy and crowded weekend on SPI. The beach did get crowded in the afternoon but we used it mostly in the mornings so that was not a big deal especially when we got to enjoy sunrises. Irma was an amazing host. She responded promptly to all my inquiries. I missed to read the contract and assumed that we had until Noon to check out. It was past 1 pm when we actually checked out and Irma was so nice about it. The apartment had everything we needed and more. We definitely plan on going to Irma's again. Thank you Irma for your professionalism, kindness and generosity.

One tip: Bring mosquito spray.

Amazing and cozy piece of paradise

  • 5 of 5

we stayed in this cute and cozy complex for a week, and we loved every minute we were there. I would hands down recommend this condo to anyone. Not only was it beautiful and well kept Irma was very hospitable! She left my husband and I wine, chocolate, and a congratulations card since we were there for our honeymoon. We were also lucky enough to bring our sweet pup, Tallie.

Quiet, calm, and tranquil in the middle of spring break craziness!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is clean and very comfortable! One block off of the beach and just steps away from the pool. Close to many shops and restaurants. We had a wonderful time and would definitely stay here again.

Tiki condos on South Padre Island Texas

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the Tiki! The condo was clean and very comfortable. The weather wasn't great, but guess we have no control over that. We will definitely come back again!

very nice

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had a very pleasant stay at South Padre. She really enjoyed the pool area as it was well protected from the wind.

Every thing in the condo looked to be brand new hardly ever used. We liked having a code on the door so that we didn't have to keep up with a key.

We would certainly come back to this place.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much Roger for your review. We very often change out our pots and pans, glassware, placemats, linens and towels, etc so that our customers will be 100% satisfied with our condo and will want to return again and again (as many of our customers do). We recently added a new crock pot, cutlery dividers in the drawers, soap dispensers, etc. We look forward to welcoming you to our condo in the near future.

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.
