About the Owner

We are Gil and Barb Morris, from Oakland, NJ, and we visited South Padre Island for the first time in the summer of 2007. We immediately fell in love with SPI and purchased our condo soon after. We have enjoyed many wonderful vacations in our unit since then. Here I'm pictured in front of a sand castle...Barb is behind the camera. No - I can't take credit for this work of art. It was created, along with dozens of other beautiful entires, as part of a sand art contest held one afternoon on the beach This was just one of our many memorable experiences on the island. Visit SPI and make memories of your own.

South Padre in the Fall

  • 5 of 5
This condo was great! It is clean and up to date! The condo has everything you need for your stay. Just bring your favorite food and drinks. The daily rate for this condo is great. There is also inside garage parking. All that anyone needs to have a vacation on the beach! Great sunrise view from the balcony. Plenty of restaurants in the area to choose from each day. Walking on the beach is amazing. There were rainy day during our stay but still enjoyed our time here. We would stay here again!

The condo looked just like the pictures and was very clean. Close to the elevator and trash shoot. I spent my honeymoon there and had a wonderful time. We plan on staying there again!

A really great location!

  • 4 of 5
Our two week stay in this condo was very pleasant. The building (although older) has been well maintained and the staff was quite pleasant. We enjoy the covered parking and never worried about our car. There are two elevators which allows for quick access to your condo and to the beach and parking levels. I used the laundry facilities on our floor (one on each level) several times and found the machines to be clean and efficient. Just remember to have lots of quarters.

The view of the beach from this 5th floor condo was just spectacular and the balcony was unexpectedly spacious. Many mornings with coffee and evenings with a glass of wine....and the beautiful water just a few feet away.

The condo itself was clean and well equipped when we arrived and the bed in the one bedroom was very comfortable. The only criticism we had was the seating area. There was one couch and one chair. The chair was fine but the couch was VERY uncomfortable to sit on! Don't know about sleeping on it (it was a fold out). I sincerely hope that the owner will consider replacing this piece of furniture soon.

Finally, the owner was very pleasant and communicated quickly and in great detail. We would definitely return to this great site especially if the old sofa is replaced.

Enjoyed overlooking the beach!

Really hassle free rental. We arrived early and the maid service worked quickly to get us into the unit, which was much appreciated. Unit was as depicted in pictures and does have utensils and kitchen appliances. No hair dryer. No travel size anything except bar soap--not a biggie, but just know to bring your own or pick it up when you grab your provisions. Also, don't forget the bug spray and sunscreen. Even though it was foggy and/or overcast--you still need sunscreen It was really nice being right over the beach. We knew end of February could be iffy on weather, but we were okay with that. The temps were nice, but not much sun. However, the fog was abundant. Nevertheless, we enjoyed the balcony over the beach and left the sliding doors open much of the time. We walked on the beach daily and drove into Port Isabel, Harlingen or and Brownsville for golf every day. Everything was easy access at the unit. We did use the common laundry room--you'll need quarters and your own detergent/bounce, etc. Dryer did dry towels and jeans in one cycle--no extra quarters needed. We didn't use the pool or hot tub, but they looked fine and others seemed to be enjoying. We did walk the beach--take your wallet. There are nice beach bars in short walk either direction. Tap water tasted fine, but I had to have bottle water. We ate at the Chef House--excellent shrimp, wonderful ambiance and view; the Sea Ranch--mussels were excellent; Liam's--yummy prime rib; Yummie's--hit it twice, loved the bacon waffle, heuvos ?? (their version of migas), and the excellent service; Julias in Los Fresnos--on the way from golf and it was awesome tex mex; Joe's Oyster Bar in Port Isabel--go here for fab fried shrimp. Golf at SPI Golf Club was nice--some beautiful bay views and challenging holes. Fairly fast greens, even after rain. River Bend Golf Course is a little gem. Right in the middle of an RV park, but the bermuda greens were good and the holes on the banks of the Rio Grande were worth seeing. Treasure Hills in Harlingen, a Robert Trent Jones course was really nice, too. Good greens, nice scenary, challenging holes. Really enjoyed the area and the unit. Thanks, Gil!!

Location

From the Owner

Our first visit to SPI was in May of 2007 and by August we were the happy owners of Inverness 504. Our little piece of paradise has given us so many carefree and happy memories. We may be professionals most of the year, but for the few weeks that we stay in our unit, the shoes come off, the bathing suits go on, and we're at home. As the locals say...'no worries.'

From your serene spot on the beach you are only minutes away from a wide variety of excellent restaurants, shopping, and a host of activities geared to singles, couples, and families.

Amenities

From the Owner

By far the single, most unique benefit of Inverness 504 is being able to step outside on the the oversized balcony and watch the waves roll in. The gentle sound of the surf becomes almost hypnotic. There are few rental units on SPI that offer such incredibly close proximity to the ocean, yet with all the comforts of your own front 'porch.'
