Why Dianne MacKie chose South Padre Island

We love Villa Del Sol because of it's charm. The location by the pool and spa is PERFECTION! The sound of the surf from the patio in the evenings, the cool breezes, the incredible quiet and the rustling of the palms - it just doesn't get any better than that! The complex is quiet, friendly and well maintained. The palm trees are spectacular, over 50 on our property alone, the most on the Island! Laying by the pool, or soaking in the hot tub and looking at the stars is pretty perfect! We LOVE South Padre Island, Texas.

What a place!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to SPI. All of the reviews of this condo were spot on. Anything and everything you need for a great vacation was located in Dianne and Jim's condo. We will definitely be returning to SPI and this condo.

Wonderful condo!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying at this condo. It was beautiful, very clean and comfortable and had a fully stocked kitchen for preparing meals. It was very nice to have the pool right outside the back patio door! Great location and close to the beach access. We will be back soon!!

Luxury, First Class, Fantastic Place!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at Diane & Jim's condo on South Padre Island. This condo has everything you could ask for and more! Close proximity to the beach, a wonderful new carry-all wagon that carries everything (including your kids) to the beach. Diane provides beach umbrellas, chairs, pool toys, sand toys and beach games!! We really didn't need to bring anything but ourselves! She even has beach towels! From high-end kitchen tools, luxurious surroundings, gorgeous pool, what more could one ask for? Our youngest loved the Xbox and DVD player in the guest bedroom, and our teenage daughter watched her own movie in the master while we had some quiet time in the living area watching unlimited Netflix or reading while listening to music on surround sound! That was really great after a long day in the sun! We grilled some shrimp on her custom Weber barbecue grill that's on the patio, it has granite side boards, really beautiful! Also took their suggestion and grabed some steaks from the Blue Marlin butcher shop. They were the best steaks we have ever had and we're from Texas! Would definitely recommend Diane & Jim's place, it's an oasis! Hope not TOO many people find this great place as we hope to return year after year!!

5 stars isn’t enough!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at many condos in SPI. None compare to everything you get here! Our favorite part of this condo is the large patio that walks out to the pool and courtyard. The patio lights twinkle at night and the pool lit up for evening swimming is just heavenly. Need some mood music, it’s all there! Everything is top of the line, from the linens to the pots and pans and gajillions of fun kitchen gadgets to whip up a fast meal for two or a gourmet meal for many more!

The mattresses are so comfy you hate to get up in the morning!

If you are looking for a condo that instantly feels like home, look no further. You will not be disappointed. The hosts are fabulous and very attentive to your needs during your stay. First time to padre? Don’t worry, the hosts have an entire binder of things to do with prices, menus for local restaurants, shuttle transportation guides, etc etc... plus their own recommendations of where to go for the best food, drinks, live music, etc.

you are walking distance to Wanna Wanna Beach bar and Kelly’s Irish pub! Two of our favorites!

The beach is a short walk from the condo ( like less than 3 minutes).

Thanks for a lovely place on SPI! We will always come back ;)

My favorite condo in my favorite Texas beach town!

  • 5 of 5

I stay here every year and absolutely love this condo. It’s so clean and smells amazing when you walk in the front door - you immediately get the feeling that it’s going to be an amazing beach weekend! There’s so much to do!! Explore and eat out, live music, really good food - all within walking distance. Or if you prefer to stay in and cook your catch of the day, there’s an amazing fully equipped kitchen with all the luxuries of home - and MORE! Doesn’t feel like a “condo” at all - feels like home but even better!! Comfy and amazing! I don’t think I can use the word “amazing” enough!!
