Condo, 1 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, 4 Sleeps

Direct Beach Front 1 Bedroom Condo with Awesom Views. This is the one you've been looking for. Direrct Gulf/Beach views from the Living Room, Master Bedroom and even the Kitchen. You can also enjoy the views and the surf from the large 20' deck.

100% remodeled in 2011 and 2012. All new appliances, cabinets, new high end porcelin tiled floors that match from room to room, new shower, sinks, vanity, granite tops and toilet. 95% of the furniture is new. We even replaced the perfectly fine matress and invested in a new king Beauty Rest matress and foundation.

Our one bedroom condo is very spacious. The Living Room and Kitchen offers an open concept with vaulted ceilings adding to the openess. A very large 13'x15' Bedroom with King Bed also has a vaulted ceiling with exposed wood beams.

"Owners editorial" When traveling to the ocean, my family always wanted to stay at a Beach Front unit. We always felt that if we're spending a lot of money to travel, why compromise and stay at a ocean view or garden view unit. Many advertise their units as Beach Front or Gulf Front. When investigating, you find that they are a garden view unit in a beach front complex or they have a partial beach view from one room or from the deck. Our condo is a true Beach Front/ Gulf Front unit in every way.

We bought this unit because it is like the condos that we'd typically look for when shopping for a vacation rental. It has breath-taking views from the bedroom, living room and the deck (A stones throw to the gulf). Being a family with a limited budget, we understand trying to get the best value. We have decided to offer our unit for rent at prices similar to garden view units. By offering our condo at competitive rates, we hope to have it booked solid (this will allow us to keep the rates down) We hope you will come and stay at our condo in South Padre Island. If we can help with your vacation plans in any way, please ask.

(Added 2012): I contunue to get phone calls or emails letting me know that renters were deceived when renting or looking for a "beach front" condo. If you are looking for a true beach front unit, whether renting ours or not, ask the owner if it a true beach front unit. I see many listings, Tiki units and others, that say beachfront but are not. I have looked at some of these listings and I too am deceived and finally figure it out because I know the location of the condos. At the Tiki, there are 144 total units. Only 12 are on the beach and some of those are not available for rent. So very few Tiki beachfront units are listed on the internet. I also see many, many other condo listings at other condo complexes that claim the same and are not beachfront. Be careful, ask the right questions. Hope this helps.

Photos: The 1st photo is the view from the deck looking straight out and to the north. The 2nd photo taken from the deck shows an example of the beautiful sunrises. The 3rd photo shows the newly remodeled shower area. The 4th photo is the south views from our deck. The following photes show the LR, Kitchen, Bedroom and newly remodeled Sink Area of the Toilet Room.

Perfect location for a vacation condo...

  • 5 of 5
This condo was awesome, just perfect for our family of 3 during spring break! We had a wonderful stay and loved sitting out on the deck at all times of the day. The condo was very clean and comfortable. The location is just perfect for getting to the beach. We loved the guest book that was in the condo, looked through it for suggestions of places to eat and things to do. Besides being on the beach & enjoying the deck, we loved horseback riding on the beach. A must do!

Great condo for a wonderful vacation

  • 5 of 5
Love, Love , Love this place! Extremely spacious for a one bedroom. The newly remodled space is wonderful. Kitchen had everything we needed, bathroom was beautiful and the bed is very comfortable. Definitely worth the money.... and let me just say THE VIEW! Wow - it's true that it is the closest to the beach. If we weren't parasailing, horsebackriding, turtle rescue visiting, at the pool, crab hunting, shopping or hanging on the beach, we were definitely on the balcony! We even saw a water spout!! same day as the turtle release - I felt like it was Discovery Channel Saturday at the Tiki! I am ready to book for next year : )

Great stay at this condo!

  • 5 of 5
We were thoroughly impressed with this condo. Upon arrival we found it squeaky clean and it felt like a home away from home immediately. The remodeled kitchen is gorgeous, and stocked with all the cookware/ dining ware you could want. The bathroom was beautiful as well. The king size bed was extremely comfortable, and the ocean view in both the living and bedroom cannot be beat! It was very special to be right on the beach. We've stayed on S. Padre several other times, but this was the best accomodation so far. The pool was clean and heated- like bath water! Which was nice as the ocean was freezing and my 4 yr old daughter wanted to swim, of course! Favorite highlights included a sunset dolphin watching cruise, Dirty Al's for seafood, Yummies for breakfast, and Gabriella's for pizza. We had a wonderful stay, and would recommend this condo to anyone.....

Great honeymoon getaway!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I stayed here for a week for our honeymoon and were completely blown away by this condo. It is incredibly charming, updated and has fantastic views. The bedroom is a large space, it almost makes the king bed seem small. The living room, dining room and kitchen all flow nicely together. Their kitchen is modern and full of utensils/cookware to make nearly anything. The bathroom is greatly done, and the toilet/shower area can be closed off from the vanity area. The outdoor balcony stretches the length of the condo and is accessible from the living room or bedroom.
The Tiki property is literally right off the beach, and was very clean. There is a decent pool and a some good outdoor grilling areas. It is also pet-friendly as we took our dog and saw several others. We enjoyed the Sea Turtle Rescue Center and the Birding and Wildlife Center, which are both walking distance from the condo.
There are tons of great restaurants throughout the island, but if one night you are looking for non-seafood, we recommend La Hacienda and their fajitas. Everything is made in-house and it definitely shows.
The owners of this condo are awesome. You can see their passion in all aspects of the place. They were very communicable and friendly. Their condo is better than advertised. My wife and I will be back for sure.

It is so quiet and private,but full of wonderful friendly people all around.There's really nothing you need to bring,they have everything ready to go.The Condo is spotless and for our long stay it is fun to clean myself.Love the tile floors,fantastic kitchen and the new bathroom if it wasn't for the ocean view you could just stay in there for hours.The new bed is so comfortable I don't even miss mine from home and makes a big difference.The internet works for us.They have new grill area that looksgreat.All I can say is this condo is absolutely wonderful,cute &cozy.The people in the office are so nice and helpful.We fill very safe here.We start the day reading on the deck watching the sun come up followed by endless miles of walking on the beautiful beach meeting many smiles from all the happy beach lovers.We have found Paradise right here in this condo.We have been overtaken by witnessing many parachuter's right next door,awesome to see while sitting on the deck,front row view.So many things to see and do."The Wave" is the Public Transportation that goes all over the Island and across the Causeway from 7am-9pm and you could stay with out your own transportation. I have to count my blessing every morning when I wake up and find myself on Tiki time.Thanking you owners for making this a wonderful stay.On for one more wonderful month.

Condo Review

  • 5 of 5
We were fortunate to be able to spend Thanksgiving week in the condo. The weather was spectacular and each day we literally had a front row view of the ocean. The condo itself was as advertised and more. The bed was so comfortable. A great bathroom! Fantastic kitchen! We didn't watch tv much but also two flatscreens! The condo feels private whether you are inside or on the balcony. It is so cool to be able to walk right on to the beach. My wife spent hours just reading and listening to the ocean knowing that a drink or a snack was just footsteps away. This is an ideal place for a couple to getaway for awhile and that is just what we did. Brent was fantastic through the whole process making sure that everything went well. We are already looking at our work schedules and the availability calendar so we can return. We only went out to eat once so we are anxious to explore the dining options in South Padre but Thanksgiving dinner on a balcony overlooking the ocean is a memory I will never forget.
