About Dorothy Gonzalez
I am a local resident of Port Isabel. I have lived in Port Isabel for 29 years. I love this town and hope that you will come and stay and enjoy all Port Isabel, South Padre Island and the surrounding areas have to offer.
Dorothy Gonzalez purchased this House in 2013
Why Dorothy Gonzalez chose Port Isabel
You will not find a better waterfront view in Port Isabel. This is a TRUE waterfront home and all the outdoor pictures depict how beautiful of a view this home actually has. The home spans across 2 large bay front lots giving you 110 feet of pure bay front bliss. The home has been in the family since 1987 when my parents purchased it; and it was their primary residence for over 25 years. I love this home with all of its charm and character, and of course the stunning view of the Laguna Madre in the backyard.
What makes this House unique
This home is situated in an area in Port Isabel called "The Hill" because of its elevation which is one of the highest in Port Isabel and on the island. Views are spectacular!

My fiancee and I went to Port Isabel with both our parents to celebrate our recent engagement with family I have in the Brownsville area. The house was super clean and had all the amenities we needed for the long weekend. Dorthy was really nice and was really quick at answering any questions we had about our stay. She even had a list of the best restaurants in the area which was really helpful when we all got hungry and didn't know where to go for dinner. Without a doubt the sun room was everyone's favorite room in the house. On the last day of our stay I was sitting in the sun room drinking coffee and I spotted a pod of dolphins swimming in the bay it was breath taking!
Stephanie - I am glad you enjoyed your stay. I am happy you enjoyed all the restaurants I recommended. Please come back and stay anytime!
Great stay. This was our second time staying here this year and we saw dolphins swim by almost daily, unlike our first visit. Kitchen is great, we cooked Plated meals every week. Our dog, Twinkle loved the backyard and really missed it after we left. Super clean. Beds are comfortable. We reserved it for another visit this year and another time for next year.
Michele- Thank you again for your second stay. Looking forward to your third stay after Christmas. Glad you enjoy the backyard and happy you got to see a lot of dolphins this time! See you soon!
Perfect vacation spot to relax and enjoy the view.
Beautiful sunsets every night, a few sunrises over the bridge, dolphins swimming by in the morning, fireworks from the island on Friday, and the opportunity to fish from the backyard. This charming home is inviting, comfortable, spacious, and well equipped. We found the best dining in the area was from our sunroom – no one could beat that view. It was so convenient to be in a quiet, friendly, residential neighborhood to walk the dogs, yet close enough to enjoy the island beaches. Thank you, Dorothy, for all your thoughtfulness – it’s obvious you care about your guests and this property.
So glad you enjoyed your stay. Thank you for acknowledging the attention to detail in the house. I clean the house myself to ensure everything is perfect for my guests. I am glad you enjoyed the sun porch and the deck and the incredible views the backyard has to offer. Come back again and stay!
Beautiful and clean house with great view
I and my family had a great stay at this house. Beautiful view. It is very clean and well decorated. The owner is very responsive and thoughtful. They provided everything you’d need from the kitchen to the beach. I’d definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for an enjoyable stay at south Padre island.
I am glad you enjoyed your stay. Please come back and visit Port Isabel and SPI. Thank you for appreciating the decor and the attention to detail in the house.
Thanks again for your stay!
This was a great house and location. We really enjoyed our stay at the house and in Port Isabel. Loved the small town feel and being close enough to South Padre to do other things as well.
Jenelle - I am glad you enjoyed your stay in Port Isabel. Thank you for appreciating the small town feel of the area and its close proximity to the island. A lot people do prefer Port Isabel to the island because you can relax in a quiet residential area versus the island which tends to get really busy. Also, it is very hard to get a view on the island like you do at my vacation rental in Port Isabel for the price. I am glad your family enjoyed their stay. Come back next summer!
Beautiful place for a relaxing vacation!!
The home was perfect! My family enjoyed the quiet evenings fishing the bay from the backyard! The house was very clean and had all the necessities. The only thing I can suggest is plastic glasses for the kiddos and a few food storage containers. But not a big deal. I would definitely recommend it! Great location to everything you may need! Awesome view of the fireworks from the back porch!! Thank you Dorothy for everything!!
Kris- I am glad you made the suggestion of adding plastic cups for children and more storage containers for the guests to place their leftovers. I always welcome when my guests make suggestions to make my vacation rental that much better. I have already gone to the store to buy these items and have already placed them in the kitchen. The fireworks display over the bay is a gorgeous view from the backyard. The fishing off the back is very relaxing as well. I am glad your family enjoyed their visit.
Thank you again!
