Large 1 bedroom Condo steps from private Tiki beach access and pool!

Our condo is located in the first building off the beach just steps from where The Tiki has private access and showers. With 2 queen size beds and a queen size deluxe air mattress, this condo can sleep up to 6 people! The dehumidifier adds to your comfort after a day in the pool or beach.

The kitchen is fully equipped for all your needs including a blender, 12 cup coffee pot & a Kuerig single cup machine, microwave, spice rack and a complete set of various pots/pans/utensils!

There is a ceiling fan in the living room and the bedroom. The 60” Smart TV in the living room connects to the free wi-fi for all your viewing needs plus cable with 6 HBO and 4 ESPN channels.

The spacious bathroom has a walk-in shower, granite counter tops and hair dryer.

The beautifully landscaped Tiki grounds can be viewed from your bedroom or kitchen sliding glass doors! These doors open up to our back patio so turn right to be at one of the heated pools, turn left to stroll on the beach! Relax on the patio in comfortable rocking chairs with a glass of wine to watch the birds! Feel like a BBQ? We are located next to the BBQ grills and picnic table too! Don't feel like cooking?

Fishing and golf are some of the best in the south on S Padre Island! A short drive across the border and you are in Matamoros, Mexico!

About Sara and Chip Kulzer

My dad and I purchased this condo as a piece of paradise that we can bring the family together to enjoy. The island feels like how Florida was for my dad in his younger days; that peaceful beach pace with a small town community feeling that is all around you on South Padre! We both live in Texas and enjoy getting to take breaks from the hustle and bustle to spend family time here!

Sara and Chip Kulzer purchased this condo in 2014

Why Sara and Chip Kulzer chose South Padre Island

The Tiki complex is beautiful! I can't say enough about how well maintained the gardens and pools are. You step onto the back patio to enjoy the sounds of the birds with the crashing waves and are surrounded by lush tropics! There is even a library room with games and books to be enjoyed by visitors!

What makes this condo unique

When I first stepped foot into #131, I knew that I was in the perfect beach condo! The light spacious rooms, the open-air kitchen and comfy sofas drew me to love this place. The condo has recently been modernized with granite countertops and tiled floors. The bathroom has a walk-in shower with bench seat and granite counters too. Closets were massive, enough to put luggage away and not worry about the bags! Everything you need for a home away from home is provided...spices if you want to cook, books and games to play, even some beach toys, but most of all, the beach, the sound of the waves, the crisp smell of salt in the air, the relaxation. Please note that there is a minimum age limit of 23 years old to rent at The Tiki complex.

Just what we wanted

  • 5 of 5

The property was as described and just what we were looking for. The kitchen was stocked with everything you would need, the beds were comfortable, the whole place was clean and when we did need help Chip was there within a couple minutes. The beach is right out the door and the pool was fantastic. Everyone that went by was very friendly and we would defiantly stay here again.

Tiki condo

  • 5 of 5

The condo we rented was a 1 bedroom. We found it to be very comfortable. It was only a few feet from the beach. The complex had a locked gate to access the beach and good security to keep nonguests from coming into the property. The Tiki management was awesome and helped us with information and arranging transportation.

The pool was warm which is great after a day at the beach.. very relaxing. Everything you need is provided and check in/out is as simple as it gets. Will definitely stay here again! Thank you.

The FREE bus transportation picks up right in front of The Tiki! The bus goes all over the island and over to Port Isabel. Go shopping or to the water parks. Being on the North side of the island, the water is pristine and the sand is gorgeous! Clayton's beach bar is right next door and the Holiday Inn just next to Clayton's has a fantastic brunch on the weekends!
