About the Owner

Our family purchased this condo because we love the ocean! The photo is Chuck, Leslie, Kathryn and Bryan. Leslie and Bryan are siblings and spouses are Chuck and Kathryn. We try to come here a few times each year to eat fresh seafood and relax on the beach. The restaurants are wonderful and it is a great place to unwind. We know that you will enjoy our get-a-way also.

We LOVED our experience with this property!

  • 5 of 5
We spent several hours on the HomeAway site comparing places to stay for our wedding anniversary. We had never been to South Padre Island before and wanted to find just the right place. Our criteria:
1) Beach view
2) Close proximity to beach (we wanted to hear the waves)
3) Clean place

We narrowed it down to eight possibilities. (There are many from which to choose!) In the end we selected this condo based on:
1) The reviews
2) The price
3) The response by the owner(s).

This is a corner unit, so the photos just don't represent how beautiful the view is! The balcony is large (maybe 6' x 18'?). There are two sets of sliding doors onto it. The beach is right there. Six stories down. It was EXACTLY what we wanted.

It is true that the building (The Inverness) was built in the mid 80s, so it's been around awhile. The stucco on the outside is a bit weather-worn. But, this is a BEACH condo, not a luxury hotel! It is comfortable, clean and inviting. We felt as if we were "home." We loved the shabby-chic beach decor and the colorful Mexican tile back splash in the kitchen. The whole place has tiled floors which are great when it comes to sand.

Everything was provided, even beach chairs! We were pleased to find extra pillows and blankets. There is even a second flat screen cabled TV in the master bedroom. (We didn't realize there were two bedrooms until we arrived. This would be a great place for two couples or a family of four.)

The owners are extremely clear on their rules and regulations. Everything is in writing and they don't ask for anything out of the ordinary. Basically if you respect the place, clean up after yourself and leave on time, you'll be fine. We did get our deposit back exactly one week after we checked out.

There was no problem with the elevator. We did not see a single bug. The front desk was helpful and available. If there were anything negative at all, it would have to be the internet service. BUT YOU'RE ON VACATION! Forget being connected. Evidently the wiring in the building is old. The owner(s) provide DSL, but it is intermittent. We were able to get online with our laptop, but I bet a bunch of smartphones would blow the router out of the water! This is out of the owners' control.

We can't wait to go back and stay here again. We loved this condo and South Padre Island.

Owner's Response: John and Diane,

Thank you for taking the time to submit this review. We are very happy we met your expectations and that you had a wonderful time. We remodeled our condo last year and we are glad you liked our decor. We wanted to create a comfortable and fun environment for our guests. Yes, we agree the view from the balcony is outstanding and difficult to describe! We spend many early morning hours watching the sunrise, smelling the fresh air and relaxing with the beautiful ocean right there! We hope you can return again soon and take advantage of the 10% discount we provide to returning guests. Thank you, Leslie, Chuck, Kathryn and Bryan

We recently returned from a full werk's stay at this condo. Everything is as described and we had a wonderful time. We have two very small kids, so we needed a place with a nice patio for relaxing during their nap times and early bed times, and to be as close to the beach as possible. This condo is just steps from the beach. There is a great view of the weekend fireworks to the left as well! The condo is in a great location and was very well stocked. They even had a few beach toys that the kids enjoyed immensely. There are several restaurants close by along with the turtle rescue, and the birding center isn't too far away.
Overall it was a worry free, relaxing stay and we will return! Thank you so much

Fantastic Stay!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in this lovely condo for four nights. It is located in a perfect location right on the gulf side of the island, and is so convenient to anywhere on the island that you may want to go. The sixth story view from the balcony is amazing!! Even if you're indoors, the two sliding glass doors create a gorgeous vista of the ocean. The condo is tastefully decorated, well equipped, and very, very clean. We felt so comfortable and at home there. I would go back tomorrow if I could! We called Leslie when we couldn't figure out how to open the lock box and she had her manager there in five minutes (note: they are changing to a keypad entry) I would highly recommend this property for your next visit so SPI. ~~Leeann

Owner's Response: Leeann,
We are so happy you had such a great time and our condo met your expectations. Yes we have changed, effective immediately, to a keyless entry in order to avoid the problems with lock boxes. Now each reservation will have their own entry code and all guests will be able to enter and leave the condo at any time with no problem of trying to share the key! We are always striving to make our vacation home stress free so all of our guests have the most relaxing vacation possible. Thank you for submitting this review - we always appreciate feedback!

On the beach and whatta VIEW!

  • 5 of 5
My husband, son, mother-in-law and I spent last weekend at Inverness #600 as an end of summer getaway. It was well equipped with everything you need - from beach items, books, extra blankets to meal prep items. There was enough space for everyone and everything we brought. The balcony is SPACIOUS and you can see up and down the coast for miles. Summer weekend fireworks were clearly visible from the balcony. We set up on the beach at 9am and went back upstairs to finish breakfast - all the while, we had the perfect view of our things looking right outside the patio door. Even the pool has a nice view of the water! When we didn't want to go down to the beach, we were able to enjoy the beauty of the water from the living room and dining room while watching a movie or playing cards. It is also walking distance to some restaurants which was nice to actually walk along the beach or pedestrian walkways without getting in the car. Some reviews had mentioned the elevator under repair and I wanted to mention that it was in perfect working order when we were there. We noticed just a few little things that needed attention and when I brought these to the owner's attention, she immediately notified the manager. We plan to return to South Padre next summer and this great condo will be on our list!

Amazing Views!!

  • 5 of 5
The Condo was just as pictured, especially the view! We liked that it was further North on the Island and away from the typical "Beach partiers" and crowds. While the Building itself is older, it is a perfect beach getaway. Owners were very easy to work with and the couple of minor things we saw in need of repair or attention were immediately addressed by Leslie, who offered to have her on site Manager take care of. Is this a 5 Star posh hotel?...no ... of course not, and that's not what we were looking for. It was decorated nicely, clean and perfect for my daughter and I to take my 6 yr old Grandson to experience the beach for his first time! Water was perfect, weather was perfect, and we had an amazing stay!!

Great condo with a great view!

  • 4 of 5
We really enjoyed our vacation at SPI and this condo was great! It has great views of the ocean/beach and had plenty of room for our family of four. The decor is sunny and festive as well! The owner we dealt with(Leslie) was wonderful to work with and even helped us at 10pm one night when we locked ourselves out of the condo accidentally. :)

Location

From the Owner

We chose this condo for several reasons. The north end of the Island is quiet and peaceful - we can go to the south end for excitement (and the water park)! We especially enjoy the balcony. Since it is on the corner north end of the building the views up the island are never ending.
