  • Awesome condo! Great rental experience!

    "This is a clean and comfortable unit in a small, well-maintained complex. The beachfront location has a beautiful view of the gulf from the balcony and living room, and the complex is conveniently located near restaurants and shopsand shops . The appliances are modern and in good working order. The kitchen was well-supplied. The wi-fi connection was strong and fast enough for us to stream shows with no problem. We brought our Amazon Fire stick, and it connected easily to the flat screen digital TV. If you have mobility issues, please note the unit is on the second floor and is only accessible by outdoor stairs. The rental transaction went VERY smoothly. The owner responded quickly and politely to all inquiries. The Sangria staff were friendly and professional. Prices were exactly as quoted with no hidden fees or add-ons. I would definitely stay here again if ever back on SPI!"

  • Relaxing, thoughtful, close by everything, excellent owner

    "I've traveled all over the world in the last 13 years and I have never stayed in a condo like this. It was an excellent experience. Most condos only have a front balcony. This one has 3 doors to each of the 3 sides of the condo, with a balcony that wraps around 33% of the condo. There are only 2 deck chairs so use your beach chairs for 3+ people. Speaking of the balcony, the employees at the front desk absolutely do NOT tolerate any sort of bathing suits, towels, etc to be on the balcony to dry off. Not on the railing. Not on the chairs. Nowhere. Our stuff just wouldn't dry very much in the condo so we had to use the dryers@ 2.00 a pop everyday; make it a full load! Change machine limited to $1 & $5. If you don't have that, they direct you to walk 2 blocks across the street to a gas station to get change. Same with wristbands, general cash and exact change when you check in. So, bring change and plenty of cash. BTW, there is no Chase in SPI. Use the Chase in Port Isabel. In Port Isabel, there's a Walmart. (There's not really anything to shop at on SPI except overpriced beach gear stores but more about the resale shops in a sec!) It does things a little different. They offer 1/2 ct of almost everything bc vacationers only need supplies for 3-7 days! 5 ct of trashbags, 50 sheet paper towels, 2 oz dish soap, etc! And the prices are 1/2 cut too. Supplies you'll need for the condo: dish soap, trashbags, paper towels, (extra) rolls of toilet paper, foil, laundry soap, plastic wrap, cooking spray, seasonings. Hint: use travel bottle for dish soap and bring some yourself. Resale shops! There are 3 of them. 1 benefits the only animal rescue group on SPI. If you need beach towels, supplies, clothes, condo stuff, go there! Save $$$ on gently used stuff, support SPI animal rescue! We found giant beach towels for $4! Much cheaper than overpriced stores, environmentally friendly and they have everything you need. Transport: the yellow/blue Wave shuttles are free, safe, clean, fast, comes every 30 min! Aquarius has private beach access but not private beaches. Beach guys get there @ 9am, take up premium areas with their umbrellas/chairs and then charge you $25 for the day to use them! Don't fall for it! Beach tip: go north on Gulf blvd ALL the way to beach access #6. Drive on the beach, set up shop and spend the day where NOBODY else is! $12 entry fee; $2 refund when you return trash in plastic bag. IMMEDIATELY GO TO CAR WASH AND RINSE UNDERCARRIAGE OF CAR!"

  • Always Our Happy Place!

    "We were once again lucky and blessed enough to spend 7 weeks in OVT #203. South Padre Island, Port Isabel and this condo = heaven on earth!! Geneva and Robert make booking, etc. so easy! The pictures don't do the condo justice... it is exquisite! The views are just awesome and the staff are extremely friendly and easy to work with. The book with all the restaurants is very helpful (see our review from last visit 2014 for details). One new thing we learned this time is that Saida III on the north side of complex will rent you a nice beach set up and place it right at the edge of the property. This solves the issue of a Beach set up. So much to see and do!! Our fur kids love it too!! Just perfect in every way. The food, fishing, golf, dolphins (only go with Scarlett, the Dolphin Whisperer), movie theater, book store, shopping and just relaxing watching the waves and/or sand crabs scurry......can't wait for our next visit!"

  • Gorgeous home with outstanding view

    "This home was so beautifully decorated and had the most gorgeous views. We loved going out on to the 2nd floor balcony to enjoy the views. It was so nice having 2 fully stocked kitchens, anything you could imagine you'd need to cook with was there including extras like spices, cooking spray, foil. The owner also left a sweet welcome basket for us. We had 13 people staying here and it felt extremely spacious. There was something for everyone to do. We loved the shuffleboard, board games and pool. There's even a massage chair in the game room! The full sized washer and dryer was very helpful too, detergent was even there. The owner took great care in ensuring everything you'd ever need is at this house. There are tons of beach toys and getting to the beach is very simple with the bridge from pool to the sand. The pool is gorgeous with the dolphin fountain. There's lots of seating at this house so you can fit your whole party upstairs, downstairs or even around the pool area for meal times. The outdoor grilling area was great too. The owner is very responsive in answering any queries. She gave us excellent restaurant recommendations too. It was such a relaxing and fun time with family here, I'd love to return to this amazing home soon!"
