About Julie Levy

I live in Austin, but I grew up close to South Padre Island. I LOVE being able to return, see my family and be at the beach. It's fun to host and share our condo.

Julie Levy purchased this condo in 2016

Why Julie Levy chose South Padre Island

I was looking for a newer condo with better construction than many of the condos I stayed in that were constructed in the 1970s and 1980s. It was constructed in 2006. The pool, very close access to the beach, and the intimate porches with lots of greenery and flowers made me feel this was the perfect place for our family.

What makes this condo unique

Small dogs are allowed. High ceilings makes it feel even bigger than it is. Two reserved parking spaces.

Great island getaway!

Stayed over Memorial Day weekend and it was a real treat. Julie is very thoughtful in her accommodations and the location was very conveniently located (across the street from beach access) Would highly recommend! Thank you.

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Julie's condo for our first anniversary vacation, and are already talking about how soon we can come back and stay here again. The location was perfect, right next to the beach and the main street with access to all the shops and restaurants. The condo was about double the size and so much nicer/newer than even the pics reflected! We were so excited when we checked in! It was spotless, great parking, adorable pool, and had all the amenities you could need. Julie is an amazing host as well, accommodating to everything we reached out to her for, and super fast to respond. We can't wait to come back, and when we do we will be staying at this property again, without a doubt!

Repeat Visitors

  • 5 of 5

We have been visiting SPI for the last several years and have been using VRBO for the last 5. We stayed at Julie's Condo last year and loved and it came back this year with our dogs. It is Very Convenient to the beach, dining and entertainment. Nicely decorated and Comfortable condo. The Kitchen has almost everything you will need for cooking, they provide most of the basic condiments in case you forgot, they have shampoo, conditioner and body wash in both bathrooms in case you forgot. They have a canopy and beach chairs, toys, etc. in case you forgot. The complex is well maintained and has a grill, outdoor showers and hoses in the back yard which we always take advantage of to clean off our gear. Julie has been wonderful and responds promptly to any communications. Looking forward to returning in years to come.

Perfectly situated!

  • 4 of 5

Condo was lovely. Spacious. Kitchen was stocked with pans and such. You may have to get some spices if you’re really into cooking. It was good for us though. Rooms were big. We were there for four days. Julie was quick to answer questions or concerns. We would stay again. Bring your own beach towels. Pool was great. Restaurants and grocery stores nearby. Thanks Julie.

Great weekend with the family

  • 5 of 5

The condo was a perfect fit for our family. We loved that it was within walking distance to the beach. The pool was just a perfect size and I absolutely loved that the condo was on the first floor, it gave me peace of mind knowing the kids can easily come and go from the pool. We would definitely stay here again!
