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

    "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! -Cory and Kiley and Kids"

  • Perfect for our family!

    "We just returned from our SPI vacation. This condo was perfect for our family of 3 and so clean. The view from the balcony was amazing. We watched the most amazing sunrises. On Thursday and Friday nights you could see the Fireworks from the front of the condo. It is ideally located in the middle of town. Close enough to everything but far enough from the crowds. The kitchen was well equipped. The only negative is the fold out sofa was very uncomfortable but a quick trip to town for a blow up mattress fixed that. We would most definitely recommend and return to this unit. Can't say enough great things about it! Thank you for a wonderful vacation."

  • Best South Padre find EVER!

    "Our family of 8 (ages 12-90 and from 3 states) found Casa Familiar to be one of the best vacation homes we have visited. We were looking for a place to accommodate active young teens and their parents as well as sedentary elderly grandparents. Casa Familiar fit like a glove. The owner, Trish, was very responsive and accommodating. She took my phone calls and answered all my questions as we were deciding on a place. The house is clean and comfortable with great access to the beach. It boasts a well appointed kitchen which allowed us to have amazing home cooked meals (I admit we are a bit of a foodie family!). Each room has a bathroom en suite with a powder room on the ground floor. The floor plan is perfect for splitting up the various groups as the grandparents enjoyed the first floor bedroom with easy access to the living area, kitchen, patio and pool, while the younger members enjoyed the upstairs bedrooms as well as the game room and sunrise balcony. But the story that sets this property apart from anything else is how kind and generous the property manager, Kathie, was to us. When I learned the Idaho brother couldn't make the trip at the last minute, I was concerned for my 88 and 89 year old parents, as they were arriving early and would not have a family member taking then to the house as we had planned. I called Kathie to ask about ground transportation, and she offered to go to the Brownsville airport to escort my parents to the house. That's 45 minutes each way for her! She took them to the house, took their luggage in for them, then took them to a nearby restaurant so they could get lunch. I was very touched and so grateful to Kathie that my parents didn't have to wait 4 hours until the next of our group landed in Harlingen. I don't think you get that type of treatment in most places. We had a beautiful vacation and hope to come again next fall. Thank you to Trish, Kathie, and the wonderful cleaning staff from la familia in California, Indiana and Texas."

  • Great house, perfect location

    "The house was much nicer in person than in the photos and had a great layout for us, with plenty of beds in the guest bedroom so our kids could have a "sleepover" each night. The location could really not be better... super-close to the beach, just a short boardwalk to get there, busy Bahia Mar just north always with something interesting going on, and a nice quiet section of beach by the boardwalk. The pool could use some shade but was otherwise sooooo soothing after a long day on the beach. The Sea Turtle rescue, Birding Center, and nature boardwalk at the convention center are all easily walkable (and yes, there is a button so you can leave on foot via the front gate). Good dinner & dessert options are only a mile south on the main stretch, and no traffic lights to deal with."
