About Dolores Gehrmann
Married 49yrs as of 2017. First visited the island in 1984 with our 3 children. Had timeshares and came every summer. Now selling our timeshare because decided to buy our cozy condo. Now we bring our grandkids and they love the condo and of course the beach. We are making memories with all our family. So decided to rent it so families can make their own memories in the Island. Voted cleanest Beach in Texas.
Dolores Gehrmann purchased this Condo in 2015
Why Dolores Gehrmann chose South Padre Island
We decided to purchased Condo in SPI - reason...THE BEACH. Beautiful and awesome for children. Its our cozy condo and I do my best to make it homely for everyone. I do have enough glasses/dishes/bowls/pots/pans and much more. You can use anything in my condo and I know you'll be careful. We have been blessed with tenants and it might be because it home away from home. The pool is great for all....adults and of course children.
What makes this Condo unique
Loved the fact that its on the first floor and parking right on front of door. 10 steps to be exact. Also the park across the street is great for family and mostly our Grandkids. Has a swings and more plus a covered patio with tables to go seat with family and enjoy the breeze. You can't grill at condo but if you bring one you can use it at they park. Our son loves to grill. I myself like to make something quick and walk across and eat the park. I do have a crockpot that you can use. Someone gave me a great review about how she put meat and veggies and when they got back from beach it was ready to seat down and eat. That made me happy.

Spring Break 2018
Me and 4 of my friends stayed here for Spring Break. When we arrived the condo was nice and clean. It had all of the pots, pans, and utensils you would need to cook. Do note that the freezer does not make it's own ice so you need to remember to keep filling up the ice trays that are there. The decor really gave it a nice homey feel to it. There was a different dining table and chairs than what is in the picture.
This condo was perfect for us to have a nice place to sleep since we were gone for most of the day at the beach or bars. The location is great and is a relatively short walk to Clayton's.
The owner, Dolores, was very nice and helpful. Since it was my first time on the island, she decided to give me a nice overview of island and what's near the condo. On our last day she even sent a reminder text of what we needed to do before leaving. I would definitely consider staying here again if I come back to SPI.
Thanks so much for your review. I do my best to make sure that whoever rents is happy and comfy. Hope you do come back and feel free to spread the word to friends and family.
The best vacation stay ever!
This was the best vacation ever for our family! The condo location is just ideal for a lot of things to do. 2-minute walking to the nearest beach to enjoy the warm waves of the Gulf. I strongly suggest checking beach events and activities, e.g., we enjoyed building of sand castles and sand figures. A lot of restaurants and pubs are on Padre Boulevard just around the corner and within 1-3 minutes of driving from the condo.The food is great, especially shrimps (huge and juicy) and fresh fish. For outdoor time I recommend 5 minute driving to the south of Padre Boulevard (TX 100) to get to the Schlitterbahn Water Park. It is a place for entire family for entire day! I strongly recommend driving 15 minutes north on route 100 (Padre Blvd) to Adventure Park to enjoy z-line riding, pony riding, animal petting, and horse riding (age 6+). The horse riding is a real must-do on the island! Deep-sea fishing and bay fishing are two more must-dos - check out small companies next to the bridge (5 minute driving from the condo).
The condo was just what we needed for the vacation! Clean, well prepared and equipped. 3 kids can sleep in the smaller bedroom, parents can sleep in the large bedroom, and one more guest can sleep in the sitting room. The kitchen is completely equipped. We do especially acknowledge the slow cooker. It is a really wonderful item for people who like cooking at home. It is really nice to put meats and vegetables into the slow cooker and get to the beach. When you return back in 3 or 4 hours with hungry kids, you all can start eating almost immediately upon returning! I also liked the mirror wall - it makes a great impression of huge space! The deck is an excellent place for evening relaxation and drinking a cup of coffee outside watching your kids in the swimming pool. Washers and driers are at the end of the building - just 30 seconds walk. During our stay, we never had a problem with washing beach towels or clothes. You just need quarters, but you can always get the quarters from any food market on Padre Blvd.
Special thanks to the owner - Dorris is very responsive and friendly! And the people at the office are very friendly and kind! We strongly recommend this condo
Few suggestions: bring A LOT of sun cream; purchase something to cover your head (a hat, etc); and buy some drinking water (the water supply on the island delivers water that smells). And enjoy the condo and the island! Our stay there was really unforgettable!
So glad you enjoyed your stay at our condo. Pleasing my tenants come first to me. Thanks
It was our first time staying several days at SPI, TX. It was wonderful to have a place to return and chill after going to the beach, shopping, driving up and down the strip. Family had fun. Would return again.
I'm so happy you liked my Condo, Thanks so much for review and hope to have you back.
Very comfy and Feels like home.very short walk to the beach.
Very clean,clean pool.we drove 8 hrs and we liked our stay very much..
Thanks so much for your review...looking forward to having you back.
Home away from Home
Lola, as the locals call her, was the best hostess. From the get go she answered all my questions and helped me plan our families 5 week stay. Its a perfect 1st floor until right by the pool and your parking spot. The place had enough room and space for two adults, two children and a small dog. There is large patio in the back where we housed all our beach stuff so we didn't have to keep it inside. We felt very safe with cameras all over the property and a very attentive property manager. We even got locked out once and the property manager came over and let us in.
There is a large field right outside the back for puppy potty purposes. There is also a small park across the street in the front for small kiddos to let off some energy or to use to BBQ.
Kelly's Pub and Wanna Wanna's became are go to places for food and some drinks. Its a very short walk so no need for a cab if you are having a couple drinks. If you want to go further The Wave is a 3 min walk away. Free rides ALL over the island!
There were lots of linens and items in the kitchen. Towels were provided as well if needed. Small touches like board games, coloring books, and puzzles are a perfect addition.
We will definitely come back. We cant wait for our next visit to SPI!
