Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: Long-time Champaign resident, I'm happy to call my SPI Condo home much of the year, but make it available to you when I'm not there.

Why the Owner Chose South Padre Island, TX, USA:
This was my year to make a move to purchase a beachfront property. Hawaii was too far, and Florida is too crowded. At South Padre Island, I found soft sand, friendly people, and though quite far, it is drive-able. What's more, we found a haven in which to detach from the cares of the world. When I saw this property with its stunning views, it filled me with a sense of serenity. I knew it was right for us and for us to share. You'll be blessed!

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
The property is beachfront - private access to the Gulf; our condo itself is on the north and western sides, providing a view from the balcony up the shoreline, and a full-on view of the Laguna Madre, sunsets, Space X and island activity below. On the 9th floor, I cannot say enough about the views or the wrap-around balcony. For us, it is a retreat to draw spiritual strength and to host others who also need a time of refreshment.
