This was a wonderful condo to stay for our vacation. Everything in the condo is clean and everything is the condo is updated (appliances, TVs, etc.). Dianne was always very accommodating, always asking if there was anything she can do to help make our vacation the best it could be. She has a binder put together that lays out everything you can do on the island and her personal review of restaurants and activities. This was our first time to the island and we definitely look forward to coming back. We had a great week. Thanks Dianne!

Best condo on Padre Island

  • 4 of 5
We were attracted to this home based on the pictures we saw online and the description of the amenities, and we made the right choice! The decor of the condo is positively the best I've seen on the island. Having lived in Padre years ago and visiting every couple years since we left, I've stayed at many places and this was by far the most delightful. It's beautifully decorated with attention to color selection and details in every room. There are high end finishes, counter tops and quality, comfortable furniture and beds. The kitchen and dining area are fun and inviting and the kitchen is fully stocked with top appliances and extras. My husband, son and I spent a lot of time on the patio, leading to the well-maintained, private pool enjoying the privacy of the only patio with full grown bushes outside. Breathtaking and so relaxing. The entire home was clean and in wonderful condition. The owners supply toys, chairs and umbrellas, which made beach time fun and easy!
We are grateful to the owner, Dianne for making herself available to us for questions and concerns and I highly recommend this home to anyone looking for a great place to enjoy island life - the beach is a few steps away - in an extra-special environment.

Dianne left nothing to be desired in her condo, you seriously only need to bring your clothes & do not over pack because there is top shelf washer & dryer for your laundry needs. It was like walking into a friends home. Very clean & left nothing to be desired. Dianne has thought of everything possible to make your stay memorable, she has a binder of recommendations of things to do while in S. Padre & we took her advice & were very pleased. Thank You for opening you beautiful home to us..

Amazing condo in a great location!

  • 5 of 5
What an amazing job Dianne and Jim have done with this condo. Everything and anything you need, you will find within condo. Very clean, organized and well maintained place! You literally just need to pack your clothing! Dianne put together a binder with just about anything you need to know about SPI. This place is so tastefully decorated with high end EVERYTHING, if I owned it, I'd have a very hard time renting it out.
We recommend The Southern Wave if you're looking for a dinner/sunset cruise and if you enjoy dolphin watching, call Scarlet. All contact information is in Dianne's binder. We also recommend Will & Jacks Burger Shack if you go into Port Isabel for the dolphin tour with's just down the street. The bathroom is a bit primitive, but if you can get past that, they have GREAT burgers and service! Thank you Dianne and Jim!

Owner's Response: Sharon, thank you for your kind words. Jim and I are so glad you went on the Southern Wave Sailing Catamaran. We try to go every time we are in Padre, it's the best! Hope to see you again soon!

Paradise in Padre, 5 stars plus!!

  • 5 of 5
Dianne and Jim are wonderful and accommodating owners, very interested in their guests having a 5 star experience in South Padre. This luxury condo is in a small, quiet complex with lush vegetation and a sparkling, well maintained pool and hot tub. The condo is newly remodeled, extremely clean and well appointed. The outdoor space is comfortable and private and the furniture is beautiful. Side tables and coffee table in the sitting area on the covered patio have beautiful granite tops, really nice! I asked what the granite was as I would love it in my kitchen. It was nice to have a new Weber gas grill to cook-out when we wanted to stay in. You can even hear the surf at night from the patio. We spent most mornings out there reading, drinking coffee and planning our day. In the evenings, after a long day on the beach, we had our drinks in the hot tub. The other residents are friendly and we enjoyed socializing by the pool in the evenings as well. Our kids enjoyed the Xbox and board games, puzzles and beach toys, all provided. The beach is just a short walk and although we had the “little red wagon”, we just put the Tommy Bahama backpack beach chairs on our back and walked with them. They have a small cooler built in perfect for two drinks and an ice pack. Very clever invention! The beach access is very nice with showers and ramp. This stretch of beach is quiet and very clean. It is manicured by the City of South Padre and kept very neat. No driving on the beach here which we felt was very safe for our children. The Blue Notebook that Dianne talks about having in the condo is very helpful. It has everything you want to know and more about the Island, the condo, the best restaurants and favorite area attractions. We used it regularly. It was also nice to have printed instructions on how to use the TV, remotes, Blu-ray, Netflix and stereo. This can prove to be a source of frustration when renting other condo’s but here, the instructions were printed clearly and laminated – just another great touch. You can tell that Dianne and Jim have traveled extensively as they really do think of everything a guest would want. I would give this condo more stars if I could. Padre Island and Villa del Sol are now a favorite family holiday destination. We will return often and plan our trip when this condo is available.

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!
