The unit has two separate bedrooms, each having its own bathroom(dutch-marble tubs with shower enclosures)and closet. In addition, there is a sleeper sofa in the living-room with a full-size mattress. For mothers with babies, we do have black out curtains in both bedrooms.

The unit is complete with a large kitchen that has all of the major appliances (all have been updated as of 11/25/13), utensils, and a complete set of dinnerware. Adjacent to the kitchen is a service bar w/stools. In addition, there are separate dining and living-room areas. The kitchen, dining and living-room areas have been up-dated with an improved look as of December 2013. In December 2014 we upgraded the flooring throughout the unit. This unit has approx. 1,200 sq. ft. of interior space.

The unit has a HDTV set in each room with DIRECTV.. Also, it has a Stereo (CDs & wifi capability) and a DVD/VCR player in the living room and master bedroom with its own collection of taped movies. A Blue-ray DVD player is also available in the living room. We also have broadband (wireless and cable) internet service in the unit. FREE INTERNET & LONG DISTANCE CALLING SERVICE INSIDE THIS UNIT.

Please note that this is a non-smoking unit with an interior detection system; however, smokers are welcome to light-up outside on the patio.

This unit is located in a complex that has a beach-side swimming pool(heated in winter), a hot tub(spa), a sun deck, an elevated tennis court, and a shared barbecue area. Daily linen exchange for the provided sheets, pillow cases and towels is available and the cost is included in the rental fee. Finally, there are several coin-op laundromats located on the premises.

Please reserve your days early as this unit tends to fill up fast.

Upon exiting the unit on the gulf side, you are only a few steps away from access to the crystal-white beaches and clear blue waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Experience the golden sunsets, doze-off to sounds of waves splashing on the nearby shore, and be awakened by incredible sunrises and the calls of seagulls and sandpipers. If you are looking for a relaxing seashore environment with all of the comforts of home, this is the right place for you.

About Robert Hibyan

We are a fun-loving couple that loves to travel. I am originally from Connecticut and my wife was born and raised in Guatemala. We live in Brownsville and we love to spend weekends on the island when our unit is not being rented.

Robert Hibyan purchased this condo in 1997

Why Robert Hibyan chose Texas Gulf Coast

I live in Brownsville, Texas and I have found South Padre Island to be a great beach resort to spend time at. Before purchasing my condo on the island, I was in Punta Leona, Costa Rica considering a vacation condo there. However, after going back to South Padre I decided that I did not need to go down to Costa Rica in order to enjoy a great beach vacation.

What makes this condo unique

We are located right on the beach and we can jump out of bed and jump into the surf or walk the beach at sunrise with ease.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Robert,



We just got back from our stay in your Condo. We loved it! It was perfect and we had alot of fun.



The staff at Suntide was very nice and always helpful. But I wanted to make a comment on one in particular. Aurora was very friendly and very helpful. If we asked her where something was in town and she did not know she found out for us. I want you to please pass this on to her supervisor. I worked in a ski resort condominium complex in Snowmass Village, Colorado. I was in management and I would have loved to have had her on my staff. I know from being in the hospitality business that you do not hear the positive things about your employees; you only hear if they made a mistake. No mistakes from Aurora. She was a delight to deal with and very good at her job.



No question we will be back.

Nice and Quiet

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week in SPI. The condo is very nice and clean, it is exactly as described in the photos. The kitchen is full sized and has a nice pantry. We used the BBQ Grills just a short walk from the condo. The Stove has been replaced and worked perfectly, they also have added a large mirror over the couch in the living area. Robert worked with us on a schedule conflict, since the condo was open the next week, which helped us out greatly. I would recommend this condo due to its convenience to all the amenities.

Beautiful property but owner communication lacking

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I and another couple had a one night get-away here and loved the location. The view was awesome, the pool and hot tub very clean and lovely. Nice big kitchen and eating area which was important to us because we like to cook in. So you can imagine how upset we were when we checked in and found out the oven didn't work and the microwave turntable didn't turn around. We had brought food specifically to cook in the oven and we were very upset, especially since the management told us he had been contacted about the problems and did nothing about it. He had also told us we could check in early and then were told when we arrived that he misinformed us. In short, if he can get the right info to us and fix the ovens, I would go back.

Owner's Response: Unfortunately, I was out of the country at the time of the check-in and was unable to manage the situation as I normally try to do. After my return home from Europe, I checked with our premises manager and she told me that this renter was allowed to check in early as I had originally offered. As well, she allowed this party to cook their food in an oven in an adjacent unit in order to help them overcome the problem noted with the unit's oven. Since then, both my oven and microwave has been replaced with brand new equipment. Since the original comment was submitted, this renter has been back and stayed in my unit.

Wonderful getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was as advertised. Well maintained and very clean. Loved being able to get right onto the beach from the unit. We spent four wonderful days just sitting on the beach! We had to check in late and the office gave us all the information we needed to do this. I am very glad to say we had a great time and would recommend this condo to anyone.
