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.

Loved our stay!

  • 5 of 5

Condo was very nice just like the pictures, about a block and half to the beach which is where we spent the majority of the day. Beach chairs where available to use. Condo was fully stocked with towels and most of the needed items for the kitchen. It did lack storage containers, larger bowls to make salads and such and baking dishes. But we easily purchased between Walmart and dollar store in Port Isabel. The condo does have 2 pools but never took advantage of their use. We loved the dunes and driving on the beach and where blessed with fantastic weather 98% of the month. Would recommend this unit to friends and family. Thanks for a great month!

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.
