Love this place!

  • 5 of 5

We visit SPI for a week every summer and have stayed here for the past 4 years in a row. Our focus when we stay is to enjoy the beach and the island instead of holing up in a condo so we don't need a lot of luxury. This place is funky, unique, and awesome! It's perfect and we love it. Jibber and his wife are incredibly friendly and hospitable, they allow our dogs, and the price is unbeatable. Beautiful tropical garden and everything you need to enjoy your stay on the island.

Beautifully landscaped secluded spot

  • 5 of 5

The hideaway @ Jibberville is exactly that, a hideaway. Not only was it very clean, but had everything you could possibly need. Coffee pot, bowls, plates, cups, cutting boards, pots and pans, ziplock baggies, etc. Walking distance to beach, grocery store, convenient stores, Gravity park, restaurants: tequila sunrise & Louie's. We are a family of 4 and were very comfortable during our stay. Jibber and his wife are wonderful friendly hosts and made us feel welcome and comfortable during our stay. The secluded garden area is so beautiful and the lizards provide a lot of entertainment. We will definitely be back for another stay. :)

My visit to South Padre Island was a first, and I did not know what to expect. Everything was provided in the one-bedroom apartment. The area was quiet. Although I did not take the time to relax in the hammock, the oasis was a beautiful sight to see as I came and went to the beach and on my sightseeing trips. Jibber provided me with information about local sights and activities. The information added more fun activities to my schedule which created stories to share with my family and friends when I returned from the trip. I look forward to another stay at the Hideaway next year.

Freindliest Condo on the island

  • 5 of 5

We rented this unit for a month in September and did not know what to expect. We have been renting condos on the island for many years now. This is the first time we rented one on the bay side. Jibber was great and made our stay one of the nicest we have ever had. The condo had everything we wanted in it and had a great atmosphere. We hope to come back next year.

this was exactly what I wanted!

  • 4 of 5

I was searching for an affordable, quiet, unpretentious spot to enjoy my time on South Padre Island when my own condo had already been rented out, and that's what I got at Jibber's Hideaway. If you are looking for an upscale rental unit with brand new modern amenities, you won't find it here--BUT! if you are looking for a nifty, funky, quiet spot with a comfy living room, seperate bedroom, wifi access, a claw foot tub perfect for soaking, full kitchen, friendly hosts, and incredible garden (complete with hammock) right out your door, and groceries, the bay, good restaurants, and the beach within easy walking distance...this is a really good deal. Plus your host Jibber is the foremost authority on the island when it comes to windsurfing. He also provides bicycle and kayak rentals. I have had a lovely visit, and I will recommend this spot to my friends.

Old Fisherman Hut

You get what you pay for... We woke up Christmas morning to NO ELECTRICITY and 55 degrees! Took almost 2 hours to get things back up because the electric breaker panel is located in another unit! No apology, no offer partial refund for the inconvenience. Very small unit with odd layout - bathroom is opposite end from bedroom. Says has WiFi, but only in the middle of the night. Only one electric outlet in whole unit capable of taking laptop's 3-prong plug. Also, the cable was fuzzy and static the whole time. Finally, there is no privacy in this unit; too many windows with inadequate covering. It's adequate lodging if you have dogs, but not very comfortable.

Owner's Response: The Hideaway is nestled in a Tropical setting and cold weather plays nasty tricks on the electrical system. We appologize for any inconviences mother nature plays on us. The Hideaway has all the amenities and appliances you may need. The kitchen, blender, toaster, cheese grater, wine opener, coffee pot, microwave, electric stove/oven,refrig., pans, bowls,dishes and silver ware. The bathroom has beach and bath towels, hair dryer. If you need something I live next door. We think you will have a restful stay in the Hideaway, and not with and outrageous price.
