About VRBO

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.

VRBO purchased this condo in 2014

Why VRBO chose South Padre Island

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!

What makes this condo unique

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a wonderful place to get away from it all! So clean and peaceful. A great place to meditate and read and enjoy the view. I could go out to the beach and breathe the sea air. There were also organic restaurants not too far away. I want to go back!

We were more than blessed to be able to stay in this beautiful condo for a month and a half. It is very homey and comfortable. It is perfectly stocked with everything you need to enjoy your vacation. The location is fabulous with so many great restaurants that you can walk to and the view is great! We spent lots of time sitting on the balcony enjoying the view and walking the beaches that are right out the back door. We would definitely rent this unit again when we return to South Padre.

Convenient, modern, clean, and cute

The condo was perfect for us- 2 adults and 2 small children. Very updated and beachy. Beautiful sunset view and looking out on boats on the bay by night. Walking to the convenience store was a happy treat.

Great place to stay

  • 4 of 5

The condo was well maintained and had the necessities. The bathroom and kitchen made it comfortable, even though there is not a cooktop stove in the condo. The griddle was easy enough to cook on. The beds were comfortable as well. The proximity to the beach was perfect with young children. I would recommend this condo to others.

Owner's Response: Glad you had a great time! Yes, the burner, griddle and electric stock pot are usually enough for cooking on vacation but I understand the feeling of wanting a full 2-4 burner cooktop. The kitchen can be set for what you prefer, with juicer and blender for thise wanting uncooked blends, and enough cooking modes to suit most anyone's preferences. Please come again!
