Ocean-facing Condo, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, Sleeps Six
About Paula Peckham
I live in North-Central Texas just south of Fort Worth. We love coming down to the beach each year, so we are kindred spirits if you're choosing the ocean for you vacation. I teach math at our local high school. My husband and I have four kids between us - all grown, and almost all married. We also have six grandchildren to keep us busy.
Paula Peckham purchased this Condo in 1999
Why Paula Peckham chose South Padre Island
The Florence is all privately owned by individuals. This gives each unit a homey, cozy feel as the people who are renting to you love being here just as much as you do. Depending upon the time of year that you visit, your neighbors may be long-term renters from up north, or families taking their vacation during the summer break. Everyone looks out for one another.
What makes this Condo unique
The beach is literally right outside your back door. Walk through the parking garage, open the gate, and your toes are in the sand. It's an awesome place to stay.
100% refund if canceled at least 14 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 7 days before arrival date.
We really enjoyed are stay here. Location was good, free city bus service was nice we were only a block from a bus stop. Great location on the beach, just walk out the door and your at a wonderful location on the beach. The place was clean and had everything you needed, and then some. We are a family of four, two of us being teenagers, it was the perfect size. The bunk beds were perfect for them.
Frequent S. Padre guest
We rented this property as a week vaca for my son and husband and I, it was great! It's convenient access to the beach and balcony looking out on the beach is great but the best part was that the owner had everything you would need available in the condo...beach chairs, extra beach towels, games and so on. The owner was available every time I messaged her and the condo was cute, clean and a perfect size for our little family at a reasonable price.
Family of 5 enjoyed our stay! Well decorated and comfortable condo. From room to beach in 3 minutes. Coffee on the balcony and that sunrise-remarkable! The beach from this access was very pretty and clean. Kitchen was fully stocked and overall the condo was clean. Could use some new paint in a few places soon. The ONLY reason for 4 and not 5 stars was due to a musty smell coming from the bathroom. It certainly didn’t ruin our stay and given price and how much we liked it, the smell was livable. I just feel that for an honest review I should mention it (maybe not great for a child with asthma, etc.) Having said that-we will be back! Owner was easy to work with and we loved our stay!
Perfect condo for two
This was a perfect condo for my husband and I. It was clean, well stocked, and convenient to restaurants. The beach area in front of the condo is kept very clean as well. Owner was quick in responding with each communication.
Everything was perfect!
Paula was excellent and even called us when we were parked in the wrong area and could have been towed. Amazing views and updated everything. Could not have asked for a better trip and temporary beach town. Thanks so much
Thank you, Jill! I'm so glad you had a great time. I love it there, too.
Enjoyed our stay at this condo. Well equipped. A little dated but the location and the view are great. Waiting for my deposit so if I get that back, then I would recommend this to condo. Thanks
