About Helen Fisher #2015-536409

I grew up in Brownsville, Texas, about 24 miles from South Padre Island. It has always been my dream to have a home here on the island. I love this island and am glad when we are able to go down as I live part of the year in West Virginia. I am a Brownsvillian so that means I still have lot of friends there and at the age of 75 I still have my annual slumber get together. I love people and have been blessed with many travelers that return. I want the people to be comfortable with me and can ask me anything questions on their concerns.

Helen Fisher #2015-536409 purchased this house in 2002

Why Helen Fisher #2015-536409 chose South Padre Island

This property is very family oriented. It is walking distance to the beach and the sunsets are breathtaking. The pool is a plus, especially for children and I always keep a few toys to entertain the smaller ones.

There is wifi and also televisions in all the rooms, if you want to watch. I also have a selection of DVD, if that is your desire.

We started building our home in 1998 and finally finished it in 2002, as my husband and son did a lot of the work. I think that is another reason this house means so much to us.

I had a wonderful cousin from Aguascalientes, Mexico, that wanted to make a plaque for the house. I thanked him and told him to please put "Aunt Minka's SOMEDAY and he got it backwards and put "Minka's Aunt SOMEDAY" I put it up that way anyway.

What makes this house unique

You don't have to bring anything but your food, toiletries, such as soaps. I do not provide paper goods but there are plenty of towels.

We have an independent ice machine upstairs, there are all the dishes you would need upstairs and downstairs. Downstairs, there is a full kitchenette and you can walk right out the door to the pool. Most of my visitors really like that.

Views of the water are wonderful, even while you are in the kitchen you can see water, I truly fell in love with the view. I love the big kitchen, dining room and living room all combined to be one big fun room. My grandchildren love to come, they eat go fishing, swimming, play games and we can all join in. Sitting on the front porch is one of my favorite spots in the evening. The sunsets and the boats going up and down the water are very calming. There is a bench at the end of the street, not far at all, where I used to take my grandchildren when they were smaller, just so they could enjoy the water. I feel like it is a little part of paradise.

So cozy and just perfect!!!!

  • 5 of 5

I’ll start off by saying these are the feelings expressed by our large group that stayed in the home. From the minute the house was booked, Helen was an absolute joy to speak with. 100% genuine. The house was large enough for our friends/family vacation. It’s bayside and it has a beautiful view off the front balcony. The beach is a one minute drive. Grocery stores, souvenir shops, restaurants are all just minutes down the road. The house is ridiculously cozy! The pool was the best to entertain the kiddos after the beach. Two sets of washing machines were extremely helpful so we all came back with clean clothes! We had the absolute best time here and would definitely recommend and stay here again!! Thank you Mrs. Fisher for sharing your home with us! Until next time!

Beautiful family friendly home.

  • 5 of 5

The home was great. It was the perfect size for our family. We have a family member who is in a wheelchair and he moved with ease on the bottom floor. Beautiful views from the balconies. We loved our stay.

Plenty of space & a pool

  • 5 of 5

There were three families, total of 7 adults, 1 older child, a toddler and we had plenty of space for all of us. The kitchen and kitchenette made it easy to prepare meals by several of us separately as needed and then come together to eat in the large dining area. The upstairs kitchen has two stoves for cooking several dishes. Talk about fully stocked kitchen, anything you thought you might need is there. Plenty of linens and towels, the washer and dryer was a plus. The pool, poolside bathroom and outdoor seating area was great for evening family time. The balconies were amazing, one side you can see the beachside fireworks and the other the bayside fireworks. It had been years since we stayed on the bayside but really enjoyed the quiet location. The beach is a short walk away, the island market is a few blocks away, and restaurants are also close by. We had an amazing long weekend and plan to return again. Helen is an amazingly kind person and a joy to talk with, something you don’t always get to do when renting, since most things are so automated these days. Thank you Helen for sharing your home.

Love It!!!

  • 5 of 5

Me and my family had such a wonderful experience renting this home. We go to South Padre every year and this was by far the best place we have stayed at. I would first like to start out by mentioning the wonderful, sweet Ms. Helen Fisher. Not only is she helpful and quick to respond to you, but she is so kind and a joy to speak with. She kept the lines of communication open anytime I needed. She let me know when she received my payment and she was quick to refund my deposit. Not only is the house wonderful, but simply because of Ms. Fisher, is why I will definitely stay at her home every year from now on, as long as I am allowed. Speaking of her home, it is wonderful. It makes you have a sense of being at home. You feel nice and relaxed. It was nice and clean and it comes with everything you could possibly need. I stayed there with my husband and children, my aunt and uncle, my parents and grandparents and it was just perfect. I recommend 100%.
