About Verna

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!

Great Vacation Condo - Awesome Service!!

  • 5 of 5

I highly recommend staying at this condo. We arrived Thursday afternoon to drop our stuff off before going shopping, etc. The condo was great, nice living room and large bedroom, and the oceanfront view. However, we didn't realize until we returned Thursday night that most of the lights weren't working, only the bedroom and restroom lights worked. I figured it was a circuit breaker issue, but the breaker was not in our room. So we called Verna and explained the issue that we didn't have lights in the living room, kitchen, no TV, etc. She immediately contacted maintenance, but they weren't picking up so they couldn't immediately come to resolve the issue. Instead, she offered us the option of staying in the unit next door, which she also manages and was vacant. The new unit was definitely an upgrade, a 2 bedroom with the master bedroom having access to the balcony. It wasn't much of a hassle to move everything over since we were getting a better room. Overall, it was a great experience. I'm sure the first room was just fine had all the lights been working initially. Other than some noisy footsteps from tenants on the floor above and the light issue, this condo is awesome and I would definitely return for another stay.

Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place to stay for our first trip to SPI. The location is great! We really enjoyed the view of the gulf and the easy beach access is nice - no hunting for a place to park! The condo is well equipped and very comfortable. We’ll definitely be back!

Directly On the Beach, Perfect for a Couple or Small Family/Group

  • 4 of 5

Overall, we loved our stay! The condo is right on the beach, with private beach access. We loved waking up every morning to the sunrise and being able to view the beach at all hours of the day. If you have not been to South Padre before (we had not,) it is helpful to know that people head out to the beach around 9 AM (the earliest you can put out canopies, umbrellas, etc.) and set up their "spot" for the day. A "spot" might be an umbrella or it might be three canopies strung together, and it may not be used until afternoon, but there is a "reservation" system of the beach that we were unfamiliar with, as we have not encountered this at other beaches we've visited. The condo is a little older, though you can tell the owners/property managers are slowly doing updates to it. Hopefully, the shower is the next thing on the list. It is older, the tub is worn through the finish in some places, and the shower head is very low. If you are over 5' 6", you'll have to finagle how to wash your hair. If you're planning to stay in and cook anything more than sandwiches or simple dishes, know that the kitchen is VERY tiny and cabinet space is all used by dishes and other kitchen necessities. We used the top of the fridge for items that did not go in the fridge and did our best with very limited counter space. For two people, this is doable, but extensive food preparation is not the purpose for which this kitchen was designed. That being said, you are on an island with a LOT of restaurants and you're on vacation, so enjoy someone else fixing dinner for you! The condo was very clean and was ready for us when we arrived. The bedroom is quite large, even with a king-sized bed in it, and the living room is good-sized with a fantastic view. We didn't hear much noise from neighboring condos, except a few nights after we had gone to bed. The bedroom window is actually in the hallway of the complex, so if people are going in and out of the other condos in that hallway, you can hear voices and doors slamming. Most people in the condo did a very good job of observing the quiet hours that started at 11:00 PM, so that was helpful. Make sure you get your parking pass and keep it in your vehicle during your stay. Parking is very challenging and people are often parked places they are not supposed to be. Julie, the property manager, is very helpful with parking issues (or other issues you may have.) It was a lovely week of relaxation and fun and we recommend staying here!

Great location. Perfect one bedroom.

  • 5 of 5

Love looking out the window and all you see is the ocean. You are 20 yards to the the beach. At the end of the day you sit on the balcony and enjoy the view and the ocean breeze. Great time. Cannot wait to go back.

Great location.

  • 5 of 5

We loved our week here. The condo was clean and had everything we needed. The owner responded immediately to questions. Loved the keypad entry - no key to keep up with! Grounds are well taken care of (pool, hot tub, & walkway to beach). We had a great view both from our balcony and on the beach of fireworks up the beach on Friday and Saturday nights.
