6th Floor 1 BR, 1 BA, with Extra Large Corner Balcony Overlooking the Gulf
My wife and I got our education in Texas, got married in Texas, and gave birth to our daughter in Texas. Then I started working as an engineer in the automotive industry and we moved to Michigan where we lived for about 25 years. I retired from that job and we moved back to Texas to get away from the snow, and to be able to ride our motorcycles year round. We love South Padre Island and wanted a place for family to come visit. This is our home away from home.
Brian purchased this Condo in 2016
Why Brian chose South Padre Island
We chose this condo for several reasons. First, the section of beach in front of the building is less busy than other areas of the beach. Public beach access in this area is limited, therefore the beach does not get very crowded. Second, this area of the Island is quiet and peaceful, but you can easily walk North or South for some excitement. Clayton's Beach Bar is only 0.7 miles to the North, and Wanna Wanna is less than half a mile to the South. We especially enjoy the sunrise while drinking our morning coffee on the balcony. Since we are located on the North corner of the building the views up the island are fantastic, and you can even see the fireworks show every weekend in the summer. The building recently completed a $2.5 million exterior renovation that includes new railings, new paint, tiled walkways, elevator improvements, and access gates to the inside parking areas.
What makes this Condo unique
Our corner balcony faces the water and gives views of the beach, and the island to the North. This is a great place to sit with a fresh cup of coffee and watch the sun rise over the Gulf. From the front door you can see the island and watch sunsets over the bay. During the summer, weekend fireworks shows can be seen from both the gulf side, and the bay side of the condo.

Spent a week loving every minute. The views are spectacular. Time on the balcony is best spent in the evening when it’s shaded and the breeze is cool. Very relaxed atmosphere on the island. The family hated to leave. Best advice I could give. Is just go. You will love it.
Wow...is all I can say. Totally impressed by the homeyness and warm feeling upon crossing the threshold. Brian and his wife thought of all the creature comforts to make a home away from home. I don't think we picked up our phones the whole time we were there, except to take pictures of the view from the balcony.
Thank you for helping us create special memories that we will cherish for years to come.
We hope to return often. :-)
I cannot think of anything that would have made our stay better. This was our second stay in the same condo. Everything was super.
Amazing beach view & balcony!
We loved this condo as soon as we opened the door! The corner balcony and view of the ocean waves was just what we were looking for! The totally awesome beach decor was such a surprise and added bonus! It was such a relief to finally find a beach condo that was remodeled with perfect touches, a cold AC and a quiet night sleep! We would definitely recommend this to anyone!
This is what a VRBO should be.
Our family has utilized vrbo/homeaway the past 5 years for our summer trips. And every time, we can always expect a little hiccup.... but not this one. Brian and Peggy Sue have done a great job creating a little home away from home. My wife even said, as we walked in, oh wow our vacation home! The decor was perfect, and the updated condo was extremely comfortable. It was awesome having a clean remodeled bathroom, shower, kitchen, and bedroom. A few days prior to our arrival, Brian even sent me a message about catching a boat trip to watch the release of sea turtles. That was one of the highlights of our trip! We have 2 teens and a recent HS grad, and we all fit, enjoying our stay. The view was amazing, and we were thankful the condo is on the north side of the building, with some built in windbreak on the balcony. Coffee maker worked! Now what I thoroughly enjoyed the most, was when we arrived, the directions were clear, and the front office was quick and attentive. The front door code worked and we were settled. There were chairs and boogie boards and towels for us which made our beach trip all the more exciting. Thank you for providing those.
We've already passed along the info along to 3 of our friends and family. This condo made our visit to S Padre. Thank you.

Brian & PeggySue
Brian and Peggy Sue have a very clean, well-appointed, and comfortable condo in an ideal location in South Padre Island. The bed and sofas are very comfortable. Soft and cozy bath towels. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you need to prepare a meal. They even provide everything you need for a fun day at the beach: beach towels, boogie boards, beach chairs, smash ball, and bocce ball. Brian was a great host and very easy to work with. Best of all is the balcony! It’s huge with lots of comfortable chairs and an AMAZING view! A great spot to sip your coffee or an ice cold beer!
Thank you so much for your 5 star review of our condo. We agree the balconies the units have in our building are the biggest on the island, and the best place to drink coffee with the sunrise. Sometimes you can see a couple dolphins playing in the surf. Hope to see you return to our island in the future.
