convenient, private, quiet, resort class

  • 5 of 5
This complex has 30 units with 2 pools, each raised and walled from the street, quiet, private, its own little secluded world. This particular unit is the best location of all, ground floor, with its outdoor patio secluded from view by location as well as lush foliage. As for the interior, the owners have anticipated every possible need. Ours was a grown up week, as we are seniors. One of us was down with gout in early stages of non-effective treatment, in horrid pain, confined to a wheelchair. Not wanting to cancel, we came and hoped for the best. He was so confined that we hardly went out at all and used the island clinic when we gave up on his medication working. Thankfully, this beautiful condo was a place where we could spend time and not feel trapped by circumstances. If you show up on a week full of rain, no problem. The dining table was large enough for dining at one end and working the 1000 piece puzzle we brought and left. Lighting is good for reading in a number of places and 3 televisions guaranty that everyone can find something they want to do. With a full size washer and dryer, we didn't need to bring nearly as many clothes as we did. The new kitchen is fabulous, with every appliance and amenity, plenty of dishes to choose from for inside and out, plenty of cookware and tools. We shopped HEB and WalMart and the little grocery just around the corner. It was all so convenient. Grilling on the patio was just like home. We joked about everything being labeled, but were so glad it was! Next time, we are bringing our granddaughter for fishing and a dolphin cruise. I grabbed fish sandwiches and burgers to go, but beach dining at the Wanna Wanna (very Jimmy Buffett) is on our list. My special thanks go to the overworked island doctor in his makeshift 24 hour clinic at 2217 Padre. He absolutely knew what he was doing and the wheelchair is now in storage.

Owner's Response: Wow Eva, thank you for the incredible testimonial! So glad you found our home exactly as we do, a tranquil oasis among the palms! Great to hear the Island "Doc" is top-notch. This is an important feature when you are away from home and in need of medical attention. Thanks so much for the puzzle, we will add it to the collection in the buffet! My daughters and I love doing them as well, working on them throughout the week after long days in the sand and surf! Great therapy! Thanks again!

Awesome vacation spot

  • 5 of 5
First let me say that it was a first time for us to use home away and rent a condo and we are so glad we did. This was one of best family vacation we ever had. The Condo is absolutely gorgeous, completely remodeled and very tasteful decorated. Everything is new, top quality and very thoughtful designed. And the owner thought about everything you could possible need. from the box outside with beach toys, chairs and boogie board to kids games, books and netflix whatever you might need or want, its available for you to use. The location is great as well. Only a 2 min walk to the beautiful beach and its walking distance to a few restaurants and bar's as well. Dianne (the owner) is very helpful, attentive and fast to respond on any question you might have and does a great job making you feel welcome in her condo. She put together a binder with things to do and recommendations which were very helpful for first time visitors. This is not just a rental condo or investment property you can tell that this condo is supposed to be a home away from home . We had a great time and we definitely want to come back.

Wonderful Condo!!!

  • 5 of 5
This condo is amazing! Dianne and Jim have really gone the extra mile to make this place feel like home. The attention to detail is incredible. The updates in this condo look like something right out of a magazine. It has a full functioning kitchen with everything you need to make a fantastic meal. The beds are comfortable as is the furniture in the living room. The pool is literally right off the private patio and can be seen from the kitchen. This entire condo is spotless...the cleanest place we have ever stayed! It is situated in the middle of the island, convenient to restaurants, convenience stores and shopping. It is also just a short block from the beach. All of this, but yet so quiet,.There is beach equipment in the deck box on the patio and it can easily all be taken to the beach in the little red wagon. Another great thing about this place is the fact that Dianne is so welcoming and easy to work with. Thank you Dianne and Jim for allowing us to stay in such a beautiful place. My family and I look forward to many more vacations at this condo!

Location

From the Owner

We love Villa 102 because of it's charm. The location by the pool and spa is PERFECTION! The sound of the surf from the patio in the evenings, the cool breezes, the incredible quiet and the rustling of the palms - it just doesn't get any better than that! The complex is quiet, friendly and well maintained. The palm trees are spectacular, over 50 on our property alone, the most on the Island! Laying by the pool, or soaking in the hot tub and looking at the stars is pretty perfect!
