About Chip and Lois Kulzer

Married to this wonderful woman for 40 years! We currently live in Corpus Christi near our grandkids! While I have spent my career in the aviation field, we have enjoyed traveling to many wonderful luxurious places. We are excited to bring that luxury to you at The Tiki! We enjoy bringing our kids and grandkids down to the island to enjoy the beach and fun of South Padre Island!

Chip and Lois Kulzer purchased this condo in 2015

Why Chip and Lois Kulzer chose Gulf Coast

The Tiki complex is beautiful! Amazing tropical gardens, wonderful pools and fantastic beach access! After purchasing a condo with my daughter, my wife and I could not stay away from this place and we had to buy one of our own. We have lovingly upgraded this condo and made this into our home and we are excited to share it with you!

What makes this condo unique

This sunny third floor condo has all that you need for a home away from home! We have upgraded the kitchen with granite counter tops, new stove and refrigerator! Plus we integrated the dehumidifier so you don't have to worry about emptying it and this will help you stay cool and fresh on the island! All the dishes, pots and pans you can need whether you want to cook a wonderful dinner or enjoy a simple breakfast! Plus there are plastic cups for you to take drinks down to the pool!

The bathroom has been enlarged and we have added a walk-in shower with seat! Although you will want to be outside, this room will make you want to relax and enjoy your shower longer! With luscious towels you will relax in moments!

We have several extras to enjoy your vacation...a sun umbrella for the beach, beach chairs, a cooler and even beach toys for the kids! This condo is filled with the sun as well as the salt air of the ocean and ready for you to relax and enjoy!

We came in for a cheer competition and decided to stay a couple of extra days and enjoy the beach. This unit was perfect! The kitchen is perfectly stocked. It even has a crockpot so you can leave your lunch or dinner cooking while you relax at the beach. My favorite part was definitely the shower! It is gorgeous. The unit is extremely clean and tidy, very well decorated and organized. It has everything you need without the clutter. There were 6 of us and we never felt crowded. Claytons Bar is next door and they have live bands on the weekend. You can just pull your chairs out and sit and enjoy the music right out front of the door or even walk over there through the private beach access and enjoy some food and drinks. We also enjoyed fireworks on Friday and Saturday. Claytons Bar sets them off. The first night we watched from outside our unit. The next night we used private beach access which is only steps away and sat on the beach to enjoy them. The balcony faces the pool. Can't go wrong here. We will most definitely be back.

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

My son and I enjoyed our stay at the Tiki! The condo was great for my family. It was quiet and the location can't be beat! The ocean was steps away. Our stay was comfortable and the staff and the owners were very kind and able to answer all of our questions. I will come back to this location as soon as possible!! We had a fantastic time!

Great owners, interesting area

  • 4 of 5

Visited just before summer; not real crowded then. Close to turtle rescue and free bird-watching at the convention center. Also wind-surfing in the laguna. Nice beaches. Occasional loud music from neighbors and the bar next door. Ended by 11 while we were there, so not that big a deal for us. Left a pair of earrings, which they mailed back to us. Very grateful for that.

Loved the location. Close to beach access and to Clayton's. Condo was very nice. Had everything I hoped for. Bedroom was spacious and cozy. Better than hotel stays. Would definitely stay there again.

Great location! Clean, spacious and very nice!

  • 4 of 5

The condo is very nice, stocked with most every thing you'd need. We loved the location! Such an easy walk to the beach! Loved the security and also how quiet and private the condo was compared to what was happening outdoors.

The only suggestion we offer is to replace the mattress in the sofa-bed. Everything else was excellent!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your input and advise. The mattress has been replaced with a 5" memory gel foam mattress. It is soft and smooth! We also upgraded the patio furniture to Pollywood bar height table and 4 chairs to better enjoy a quite glass of wine on the patio for a relaxing evening. I hope you get a chance to return and experience it yourselves.
