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 during Spring Break, that there is a minimum age limit of 25 years old to rent at The Tiki complex.

My favorite condo at the TIKI!

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed at a few condos at the TIKI complex. This is my favorite so far. The house had everything we needed. I have a baby and to my surprise it was also equipped with a high chair and a play pen that came in handy. The open concept in the kitchen I loved. The restroom is to gorgeous! Condo is literally steps from the beach very convenient. We will definitely be back!

Perfect little home on the beach

  • 5 of 5

This condo was just perfect for us and our 3 little girls. We've stayed at the Tiki before and found it outdated and worn, but this unit has been updated with granite counters, tile floors, and nice walk-in shower. The beds were comfortable. We were pleased to find the shelves well stocked with kitchen supplies, beach toys, plenty of towels and washcloths, and even a camp chair! And of course, the best part is that we could walk out of the patio door and around the corner and there was the beach! The owners were easy to contact and were kind enough to accommodate us with a pack'n'play and high chair for the baby. They also gave us a late check-out time on our last day to allow us more time at the beach. Definitely would stay here again!

End of summer fun!

  • 4 of 5

Everything was great. Only complaint was a strong sulferic smell when using the shower. This may have been a seasonal issue. Next time I would bring low sitting beach chairs and throws for the couch. Otherwise everything was provided as described! The condos were extremely nice. Very clean! Pool was awesome. There was Claytons Beach bar 2 doors down for outdoor dining and drinks along with evening entertainment, live music and Fireworks! Also next year there will be Bar Louie’s next door! Can’t wait!

Overall great value, close to Beach, First floor

  • 4 of 5

Condo was close to beach so that’s a plus! Large screen tv’s with HD, kitchen fully equipped with keurig too! Comfortable bed with all linens. It was nice to have a cooler, beach towels, toys for kids! Updated kitchen appliances and nice shower. Loved having a pool and beach access close. For a family of 5 we needed more towels for the week and ability to grill without using public grills would be nice. A portable grill would be useful. It’s a beautiful beach and clear water! Bring extra towels unless you mind doing your own laundry while on vacation. I just want to have fun and not worry about laundry! We were provided with six bath towels for bathroom for entire week.

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!
