About Peggy

Love to have good, respectful people at our unit. We are upstairs at different times of the year. Always like to meet our renters if we are there. I graduated in San Benito, TX about 33 miles from island. Use to go there when had to go by ferry only.

Peggy purchased this house in 1985

Why Peggy chose South Padre Island

We have gone to the island since before any bridges and always a thrill to cross the 2-1/2 mile causeway to get there. So just had to have a piece of it when it opened up to easy access.

We keep our unit updated all the time. We like to keep it in the condition that we would like if we were traveling or wanting a nice place close to the beach. 5 houses from beach, also restaurants just around the corner walking distance.

The charming abode is very clean, quiet, and just a short walking distance from the beach.

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed for three nights. We had a serene and safe time in the house considering that we had two small kids in tow. We loved the accessibility of the house to the beach, the main road, and the food establishments. The idea that the homeowners lived upstairs secured the safety of the home and the assurance that you could contact them easily when need arises. Overall, we were satisfied with the accommodation.

I never take the time to write a review..... Until Now

  • 5 of 5

This is the first time I have ever felt the need to write a review. First of all, the pictures don't do justice to how amazing this place really is. Usually a place is much nicer in the pictures, but this was the opposite. My girlfriend and I both agreed as soon as we stepped inside, that it was way better in person than the pictures we saw online. We arrived for an early check in on Friday with no problems. We met Peggy and her husband John, and instantly felt like family. They are absolutely wonderful people, and made us feel so welcome and so at home. They are an absolutely wonderful couple of people that you just love to be around! They had a ton of great suggestions and places to go, and see, and eat, and things to do... super knowledgeable! We stayed for 3 nights in this wonderful beach home. We were only about 150 - 200 yards from the beach, and could walk it with no problems, and only one street to cross just before you hit the beach. It's a great 2 bed condo, very clean, and well kept. John and Peggy stayed right upstairs, which made me nervous about hearing them, and with our four kids, all under 12, made me nervous about them hearing us. However, we had no problems whatsoever. They said they didn't hear us, and we certainly didn't hear them. We hardly even knew they were there. I don't know how else to say that this was absolutely my favorite stay, anywhere, and I can hardly wait to go back. We all agreed that for every future trip to the island, we stay at this condo. We will definitely be back, and highly recommend it! Thanks Peggy and John for a wonderful experience!

I highly recommend Peggy's Place for your next visit to South Padre Island

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I decided on a motorcycle trip to South Padre only a few days prior and Peggy was extremely accommodating. After a 2 day ride down from Minneapolis it was a wonderful surprise to pull into Peggy's Place. It provided the perfect location for our stay. The beach is a short walk away as are many of the island's attractions. Peggy and John are experts on the highlights of the area and recommended some great places. SPI was such a treat that we are already planning a return trip this coming winter, albeit by air as opposed to bikes, and plan on staying with Peggy yet again.

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

This condo is clean, comfortable and we had a wonderful stay. The two bedrooms are very large and the kitchen was so easy to cook in with the large island. The neighborhood is quite and the beach is just a half block away. We walked to many of the restaurants and the location is great. Would stay there again when we go! Owners are wonderful to talk to and are very helpful!

Great condo!

  • 5 of 5

Peggy's Place is a great condo. It had everything we were looking for. Very clean and large bedrooms. We cooked almost all of our meals in the condo. It's close to the beach and the street we stayed on was very quiet and family friendly. We will be renting this condo again!
