Visiting South Padre? Look no further -this is it!

  • 5 of 5
If you are planning a trip to Padre, this is the BEST place to stay! The owner is pleasant, easy to work with - and it's obvious that her “personality” is in every detail of this beautiful “home away from home”. From the sheets, towels, pillows and mattresses to the dishes, furnishings and décor - both inside and out – everything is high end. You even start your stay with a gift bag of gourmet chocolates, WOW! The entire condo was spotless and the grounds well maintained. The patio is private and the sound of the surf is amazing at night! The pool area, just outside the patio, is tropical and sunny with great ocean breezes. In the late afternoon it was shady and nice - perfect for relaxing under the palms after a day at the beach. You don’t need to pack beach towels, rent beach chairs or an umbrella, Dianne provides them for you. This was GREAT for us as we flew in! The Island Shuttle picked us up at the airport and dropped us at the door, even helping with our bags. The “Wave”, a local bus service, ran us all over the Island for FREE, catching it just a few steps away at the end of the street. It runs about every 15 minutes or so and was a great convenience for us. We did take a cab to Walmart to grocery shop, but other than that, we walked everywhere and took the Wave. One of our favorite “hang-outs”, Wanna-Wanna, is on the beachfront just down the street. We had a very memorable experience in Padre and renting this condo was the best decision we ever made, no more hotels for us – we are spoiled! I am positive that you can’t find this luxury, this location or this value anywhere else in Padre. Thank you Dianne for sharing your incredible home! Can’t wait to return!

10 Stars! Awesome condo!

  • 5 of 5
This gorgeous, quaint complex has 2 pools with huge gorgeous palm trees and is located in the absolute best spot! Ground floor, pool side, with an incredible outdoor patio and we had the whole place to ourselves! The owners have anticipated every possible need. It came complete with super comfy beds & pillows, soft towels & sheets, a full size washer/ dryer, and the kitchen is fabulous! They’ve provided every appliance and amenity, dishes for inside and out, plenty of high quality cookware and utensils. It felt just like home. Grilling on the patio was such a great convenience as well. The beach chairs, beach towels, books, games, movies, made packing so easy. We didn’t need much… just a few changes of clothes and our swim suits. And one block from the beach! 10 stars! We highly recommend!

The Perfect Beach Condo

  • 5 of 5
Dianne and Jim's condo was amazing. It was beautifully decorated - not like a typical spare beach house - more like a tasteful home with a lot of character. The beds were sooo comfortable. The kitchen was stocked with everything we needed to prepare meals for the weekend, but we ate out a lot - since the condo was so close to everything. Dianne's recommendations for places to eat were great - especially Gabriella's Pizza. The beach was so close that we sometimes went out more than once a day. It was also great to be able to step out to the pool and hot tub whenever we wanted to. The whole set-up was just made for relaxing. The next time we go to S. Padre, I'd love to spend a whole week or more, and we'll definitely try to get this place again.

Upscale peaceful beach oasis!

  • 5 of 5
This condo was a beautiful, quiet, private oasis with towering palms and soothing coastal breezes and we had the whole place to ourselves! It was a quick walk to Wanna Wanna for dinner and live music, one block from the beach access. We loved everything about this condo including the kitchen and full size washer dryer. All the books, games, movies, and beach gear was a nice touch too. Highly recommend!

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!
