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 South Padre Island

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.

Great time and good location

  • 5 of 5

The property was great. It had everything that we needed and it was in a good location. The walk to the beach was not long and the beach was great. It is a second story property so expect outside steps. The surrounding area was great. Walking distance to restaurants and grocery store. One negative was a hole in the porch outside the door when we arrived. The facility management needs to fix that but it did not interfere with entering or leaving the property.

Owner's Response: Bruce and Linda, I was not aware of any hole. I have called the management company to correct this issue. Thank you for letting me know.

Perfect Location!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful condo and grounds. Convenient to restaurants (Grapevine Cafe is a must for breakfast and lunch), shopping (grocery store is a block away), and perfect spot to see the fireworks from the bay on Thursdays and Fridays. Oh, did I mention the Wifi service was excellent. The place was setup nicely with whatever you need to enjoy an afternoon on the beach. Can't say enough about this place!
