About Stephanie Saenz

Husband and wife with twin nine year old twin daughters. We bought the condo to 'get away' from our hectic lives and enjoy time with our girls. My husband's a police officer in Corpus Christi, if we are home, he is always willing to work, so we can never relax as a family! This was a way for the four of us to enjoy each other and have fun away from our daily commitments!

Stephanie Saenz purchased this condo in 2014

Why Stephanie Saenz chose South Padre Island

It was important to us to find a small complex that is quiet and has the beach right there! The landscaping has the feel of the tropics and the complex is very quiet. The office is very pro-active on keeping the visitors limited to only the Tiki. Maintenance and office staff are extremely friendly and willing to help any way they can.

What makes this condo unique

This bottom floor unit was a blank slate! We are working on remodeling to bring the unit up-to-date. We put in brand new beds/bed linens ect. Brought in more color, fresh paint and special touches to make it feel 'beachy'! New stainless fridge and keurig were just put in on 7/14/14- new kitchen cabinets and Kenmore Elite stainless appliances - bathroom remodel Sept 2017! The private patio faces lush landscaping and a grassy area - very rarely does anyone pass by - giving you the sense of seclusion!

Super cute! Great location! Perfect for the family!

  • 5 of 5

Super cute condo minutes away from the beach. Beds are very comfy and kitchen had everything we needed. The heated pool was like a minute from the condo. Very private back patio. Stephanie responded very quickly- answered all of our questions and was easy to get ahold of. The Tiki is a beautiful complex! We will be back!

Nice Unit, bad timing

  • 3 of 5

The unit was extremely nice and prepared in that special way that makes you feel at home,

Sunday was beautiful, next few days we got pounded,

Immediately to the North, like fifty feet away there is a massive construction project underway and they are in the middle of excavation which means big equipment back and forth on the lot from 7 am till 4:30 pm. A few dozen yards to the east is the pool that had been emptied and was being prepped to be resurfaced, which basically means a bunch of guys with chipping hammers going at it all day long. Then to add , on our final day the yard guy decides to mow trim and blow his machine right up till the time we left, extremely noisy trip.

Owner's Response: Unfortunately - all of these items are out of my control. During the week - I do know they can work from 8 am to 5pm. And yes they are constructing a new hotel next door - which I have no control over - nor does the Tiki. Visiting during October is typically the slowest month - that is why the rates are soo good - that being said - it is the time the Condo does maintenance items during the day Monday - Friday. I as an owner have no idea when the items are being done - that is the property managers job to schedule when needed. But - there are 2 pools very close to one another. I take pride and special attention to make the unit as best I can and feel as if you are at home away from home.

Great condo at a great price!

  • 4 of 5

We went week of August 20th. The condo is clean and has most everything you need. Love how it is so close to the beach and very comfortable. The only things you need are extra paper towels, toilet paper and your toiletries. It has lots of dishes and pans to cook if you are saving money or don't like to eat out too much! The AC went out at a point in our stay, but the maintenance was very quick to come and fix it.
