As you enter this beautiful condominium you immediately feel refreshed and relaxed. You will know you selected the best place to stay for your vacation in paradise. We welcome you to our home away from home. Home to the most beautiful beaches in Texas! All you need to bring to enjoy your time away is your food, cloths and personal items. This condo comes fully equipped with linens and a top of the line kitchen.

The kitchen is second none to any home, with granite counter tops, ceramic top range, stainless steel appliances with a side x side refrigerator, auto dishwasher and microwave. The kitchen is fully equipped for all your needs. The living room is furnished with two tropical blue sofas (one is a sleeper) and 42' flat screen TV.

The master bedroom has a king size bed with a mattress that may cause you to sleep your day away. A 32' Flat Screen TV and onsite bath are for your added pleasure.

Two private parking spots are located right outside your door. You will not need to drive because everything you need is walking distance from your front door. We are located in the heart of South Padre Island Entertainment District, with many great restaurants, bars, and supermarket as well as steps away from both the beach and bay. For you early risers enjoy the beautiful sunrises and for those of you who opt for a later rising enjoy the beautiful sunsets!

After a long day on the beach or at the water park come home to a relaxing day at the toasty hot tub and heated pool or choose a cool plunge into the second pool that is not heated. Whatever your choice I know you will not have trouble relaxing in paradise.

About Ellen Rivera

After enjoying South Padre Island for twenty years we decided to purchase a little bit of paradise. We enjoy spending time here with family and friends. We hope you enjoy it as much as we have!

Ellen Rivera purchased this condo in 2014

Why Ellen Rivera chose Gulf Coast

After looking at many properties on the island we stepped into this unit and felt a sense of peace. The condo reflected a tropical feel much like the Caribbean! A quiet retreat but close enough to the attractions that allowed us to soak up all South Padre Island has to offer.

This condo was so comfortable and clean. We loved the floor plan, and the kitchen is great! My favorite thing was the glass dining table, very unique.

The pictures online do not do justice for this place.

  • 5 of 5

The pictures online do not do justice for this place. It is beautiful and full of amenities. Everything is actually within walking distance. The store, which is right around the corner (Blue Marlin), did not have a variety and was a bit over priced but if you need something it's there. There is this great little restaurant almost next door called Grapevine. The beach is one block away. This condo was just right for our family! The only suggestion, is that if you have little ones put the breakables away. I have grown kids (all older than 11) and we still manged to have something break.

Perfectly pleasant pad!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here in early July and absolutely loved it! I like to stay in a comfortable place with nice surroundings and all the accommodations that are needed without paying an arm and a leg. This condo fit those desires perfectly. It has a lovely interior, all the necessities of home, less than a 5 minute walk to the beach, and several stores, coffee shop, etc. within walking distance. The homeowner, Ellen, was also easy and pleasant to deal with. :)

Beautiful Condo/Great Value/Awesome Owner!! Will stay again!!

  • 5 of 5

We rented Unit 2 (upstairs) through VRBO this past weekend (7/15/2016). It was for our yearly girls trip to SPI in which we normally stay at a well known local hotel but it was way to expensive this year so we decided to look through VRBO and our first rental was a huge success. We will be staying here for every year that we go to SPI. It was absolutley wonderful. The pictures are right on point, except in person it was a lot bigger than we thought. Everything seemed so new from the flooring to the furniture. New/clean bedding (loved the clean smell of everything). All new kitchen that had everything you can think of to cook at the condo, in which we did. Updated decor, which was absolutely beautiful, the dining are is just breathtaking. Our unit was very serene. Free parking (2 spots) was a plus. We had a balcony that overlooked the pool. The grocery store and liquor (girls trip) was around the corner literally as well as beaches. The owner Ellen was amazing and made this stay great. Towels were well stocked for all 5 of us to enjoy at the beach and shower time. She had a closet full of fun beach toys and chairs. The 2 pools are a nice touch, especially since one has a really hot jacuzzi attached. This was an overall awesome stay and I would highly recommend this condo to anyone who vacations in SPI. Each one of us had our own bed. The masterbedroom had a king size bed which was great as well. The couch was a pull out and the second room had bunkbeds with a third pull out under the bottom, plenty of room. Not only was this a great place for a girls trip but even a great spot for families. Oh did I mention she has free Netflix on the T.V in which we did enjoy nightly movies. If I could give this place more stars I forget hotels for us in the future...this is the condo to stay at.

Lovely condo

  • 5 of 5

This condo is nicely decorated and very

Comfortable. We enjoyed the heated pool and hot tub. The king bed was great. Ellen was quick to respond to any questions we had. A little blip with the cable tv, but problem is being resolved. Loved walking the beach every day, and were surprised at how many good restaurants there are.
