About the Owner

I'm a retired school teacher and earned my right to sit back, relax and have a delicious Margarita in a beautiful, tropical setting, whenever I like.

My husband and I bought this fantastic condo as a second home in the beautiful Rio Grande Valley of Texas, in order to get away from the city traffic, crowds, and cold winters.

I love the beach, and if you do also, I invite you to share our beautiful condo on the water.

Great Location

We were very happy with our stay here. The condo was comfortable and had everything we needed. Wifi worked fine, front desk staff were nice. We accidentally locked our key in the room after office hours and called an office number, we were let back in right away. Hardly a 5 min wait.

Relaxing weekend

  • 4 of 5
The condo was very nice! It looks exactly the way it looked in the pictures. The view was nice. There was plenty of room inside and out on the balcony. The ceilings are a little thin so you could hear stuff going on upstairs. But that is not the owners fault…more like the disrespectful neighbors upstairs. The only problem I had was with the wifi. It wasn't working and they had a sign saying to call the tech and not the front office for help. Well they never called me back. Luckily the nice lady at the front office made a suggestion which worked. I would stay there again!

We had a wonderful time at South Padre Island. The condo was just like the pictures ! Clean and neat. My parents had not been to the beach in years , and they had a blast ! The views of the beach were amazing! The balcony had plenty of chairs (7) for all of us to sit and enjoy the view! Furniture was comfortable, and for the most part clean. Enjoyed the stay !

Great Stay, Reasonable Pricing, Very Comfortable & Wonderful Staff Whenever You Need Them

Great Stay, Reasonable Pricing, Very Comfortable & Wonderful Staff Whenever You Need Them
  • 5 of 5
Suntide II was very accommodating for our stay before during and after booking. The condo was extremely comfortable and well equipped. More than enough dishes and glasses and cookware to accommodate a family of 6. The pool was great for a nice swim to cool off and great beach access. Decor was nice, beds were very comfortable with lots of pillows. Condo was neat and tidy, some areas could of used a spring cleaning but clean for the most part. Loved the balcony to sit and enjoy the sunrise and watching the surf. When we needed staff they were very prompt, courteous and helpful. Definitely would come back to stay here and would recommend it to others.

Great stay overall!

  • 4 of 5
The best part about this rental is the location, for sure. This condo was directly on the beach behind the volleyball nets which was perfect as the seaweed was a little better maintained in front of this property than some of the others. My 18 month old daughter LOVED the sand (which is beautiful and powdery) and waves in the ocean. She played for hours on the beach and was content to dig with some beach toys, pick shells and occasionally dip or splash her toes in the water. The only downfall of the beach in SPI is that people who use the beach often don't look after it; cigarette butts were frequently dug up as "treasures" by my daughter as well as bottle caps. This isn't for lack of garbage cans but just ignorance. I found this very unfortunate but it didn't ruin our trip by any means.

The condo, as described, is very well equipped. It has almost everything you could need including a small countertop grill, loads of pots and pans, food processor, etc, etc, etc. The only things we didn't find that would have been helpful were a cutting board (which my husband now swears he saw) and scissors. But we survived!

The space was great in the condo. A family of 5 could comfortable stay here. We found the furniture a bit big so we moved a few things (like the kitchen table) against a wall to give our daughter room to play and that worked out well.

The only downfalls of this rental are:
(1) The carpets are in rough shape and need replacing.
(2) An overall deep-clean would help bring it back to life. I'm sure lots of the rentals which are used for Spring Break destinations need this as I'm not entirely sure the cleaners do things such as the baseboards, windows, bathroom floors every time the keys change hands.
(3) The second bathroom has seen better days. This is apparent probably more so because the master has been renovated nicely and the contrast is evident.

The owners were very helpful in the booking process and recommended a little aquarium in Port Isabelle with touch-tanks for our daughter. We went on a cool day and she loved it. The tanks were just at her level and she thought the hermit crabs were amazing. It is very small and simple but perfect for toddlers.

Overall, we had a comfortable stay. Our daughter enjoyed the beach and pool and as a result so did we. We hope to return in the fall.

Owner's Response: I'm glad you enjoyed your stay and your daughter enjoyed the aquarium. There were scissors and a cutting board in the condo so we will look into that. The carpets were replaced about a year and a half ago. As you can imagine, the wear and tear is heavy due to the proximity of the beach. However, your suggestion for a deep cleaning is a good one, thank you for the feedback. And yes, please come back in the fall!

South Padre Spring Break

  • 5 of 5
Everything was ready upon our arrival to expedite getting checked in. Entrance to room gives immediate view to the beautiful ocean. Room was nice and clean (well not to wife's standards) but no major complaints. Decor was what one would expect for beach front condo. Little dated and an older facility...but nice! Plenty of everything one would need to make themselves at home. Ample seating inside and on balcony. Directv in each room and wireless internet was easy to connect to. Daily linen exchange, but don't oversleep as this service is only available between 9 and 11 am. Swimming pool and hot tub were nice, but filled up quickly with spring breakers. Got a little rowdy at times, but not to the point that one needed to inform management. Beach access was easy and controlled via locked gate. 2 volleyball nets right in front of complex. Beach was clean and patrolled frequently. Maintenance staff were seen constantly making sure everything was working and clean. Family had a great week and would recommend facility. Condo owner was great to work with and responded to emails quickly. Very accommodating. Looking forward to our next trip back!

Location

From the Owner

We purchased this condo because we enjoy the slower pace of the island life. We traveled frequently to this area over the years and chose to buy property so that we could enjoy the 'laid back life' of a great beach away from the cold of northern winters.
