About Kari Lauer

We are a fun-loving family from Houston, TX. You may have seen us before because we were on HGTV's Island Life in November 2016 for the purchase of another one of our condos. Travel is a big part of our life because we're an aviation family, however, over the years we've found that there is no place quite like South Padre Island!

Kari Lauer purchased this condo in 2015

Why Kari Lauer chose South Padre Island

We bought this property because of the great feel it had to it with the large kitchen and natural light. With having younger children, we also loved its proximity to the beach. You don't have far to travel with all the beach gear!

What makes this condo unique

Sitting out on the balcony in the evening and people watching is one of our favorite things to do. Whether it be a mariachi band across the street, fireworks down the beach at claytons, or just people bicycling by, it's always fun to watch. Due to the concrete construction of the building, it's also very quiet at night for sleeping. It's a very peaceful place to be.

Nice Location - Exactly As Described

  • 5 of 5

First, our host Kari was extremely prompt in answering any questions or concerns. The condo is well maintained as shown in the photos. The complex is located in a quiet area. The only noise was the bass from a stereo system in an adjoining 3rd floor unit - but that was fortunately infrequent. Otherwise, couldn't hear the neighbors. It was a great visit - highly recommended.

Well appointed and cared for condo

  • 4 of 5

I liked being so close to the gulf (across the street). There is a big building in the way so you can't see the gulf directly but a nice walk across the street and you are at beach entrance #22. It was great to take a morning walk or run on the beach. As a surprise bonus, we were able to see the weekend fireworks at Clayton's right from the deck.

Kari was responsive and you can tell that she cares about your experience at the condo. The unit itself was better cared for than the building as a whole. Odd not having any spices except pepper for cooking. A shared spice rack would be appreciated. Appreciated having Wi-Fi connectivity.

All in all, we had a great time and would rent the unit again. Thanks Kari!

Wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We've been spending a week a year in South Padre Island for the last ten years. We discovered this condo when our usual place was completely booked. I can honestly tell you this condo ranks at the top! The condo itself is very modern with new kitchen appliances and more. It is spacious and is fully stocked with just about everything you need. It is across the street from the beach access and literally 100 steps to the sand. From the balcony you can enjoy the fireworks every Friday and Saturday night. Two parking spaces allow you to have guests over without having them hunt for a parking space. It is near many restaurants and other popular locations. The owner was very friendly and attentive to every aspect of our stay. The roads are bicycle friendly, which is how we get around the island. I would definitely recommend this property to anyone. We will definitely be staying here again.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your review! We really appreciate you mentioning the fireworks because I hadn't thought to say that, and they really are spectacular! We also put a lot of effort into stocking the kitchen, and we hope to add even more for next season. We're glad you enjoyed your stay and look forward to hearing from you next summer! Thanks again. :)

Very nice place!

  • 4 of 5

This condo was just as described. We were very pleased with the location, it truly is steps away from the beach. The condo was very comfortable and nicely remodeled. The owners were very responsive to questions and our stay was enjoyable. We would definitely stay here again.

Great location & amenities!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at Padre Time over the 4th of July holiday! The owners were extremely kind and communicative with us from start to finish. The condo was very clean and very comfortable for us (2 adults & 2 children). It also had all the amenities we needed on an extended weekend stay - plenty of towels, kitchen appliances, and a washer/dryer. The location was also great! Quick access to the beach from right across the street. We certainly plan to book this condo again for future travels to SPI!
