About Lynn Mauer

During my "growing up" years, I was fortunate to live in some of the prettiest beaches in America and abroad. My father was career Navy, which means the water or beach was almost always nearby.

I absolutely love having vacationers stay at my beach house! Hearing laughter from happy guests is music.

Lynn Mauer purchased this house in 2007

Why Lynn Mauer chose South Padre Island

Perfect property. It is all about location.

What makes this house unique

This is one of the prettiest properties on Gulf Boulevard. The beach access is directly across the street. Why come to the beach if you can't hear the waves at night?

We had the best time! Captain Kevin and Lynn were so friendly and accommodating. The beach house had everything we could possibly need. They provided beach chairs, sand toys, umbrellas, and beach towels which was very nice! The property was very clean, and we had plenty of space for our family of 4. The beach access being right across the street from us was ideal. We were able to come and go as we pleased! I would definitely recommend staying here, and we will definitely stay here again if we come back! Thank you Captain Kevin and Lynn, we really enjoyed our stay!

We'll be back

  • 5 of 5

We had a great experience in Lynn and Captain Kevin's home for the last two weeks in April. Great location, beach view, awesome front porch (for coffee and margaritas) - very friendly and helpful owners. Very nice 2 bed/2 ba with functional layout and nice kitchen. Totally stocked unit w/ towels, all the beach stuff you ever need. Outdoor shower and hose is such a great amenity. The unit is in waking distance to restaurants and beach bars as well as the Blue Marlin Market.

While it was the windy season, we enjoyed the slower "off-season" on SPI.

We will definitely be back. Thanks again to Captain Kevin for his BBQ/Smoker advice!!

Perfect morning beach walks!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Bougainvillea! The home was very modern and well decorated. It was comfortable and spacious enough for 4 adults with our pets. An added benefit was a gate at the end of the porch to help keep the dogs close :) We all loved the ability to simply cross the street to the (nearly private but public) beach access path. Captain Kevin and Lynn were very friendly, open and knowledgeable. We really enjoyed visiting with them about the Island and are considering a future charter with Captain Kevin’s Big Mother Bay fishing. My Colorado parents had such a wonderful time that they look forward to planning another trip down to SPI! (We’ll be there regardless) The proximity to beach, grocery and brewery can’t be beat. We highly recommend staying at Bougainvillea!

Wonderful beach house, perfect for a family

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying here for New Year's Eve weekend. We are a family of four and the owners were gracious and allowed our family dog to stay as well. The space and layout was perfect for our family - we loved the proximity to the beach and the central location relative to restaurants (we loved the Cafe on the Beach so much we ate there twice) and amenities. The convenience of two bathrooms, a washer/dryer in unit and all the kitchen appliances and supplies was wonderful. We would absolutely stay here again.

Great location and quiet, comfortable accommodations

  • 5 of 5

Loved the front porch and close location to everything. Bed was very comfortable and the apartment was fully equipped with everything we needed. Lynn and Capt Kevin were very friendly hosts. We hope to return for a visit during the summer for warmer weather.
