About Verna

Jeff & I went on a vacation to Texas in 2005 to research the idea of moving from the Midwest cold winters to the Galveston-Houston area. We flew to San Antonio and rented a car to make a leisurely drive up the coast from South Padre Island. We made it to Corpus Christi and turned back! South Padre Island had hooked us! The water was bluer and the feel was right. South Padre Island welcomed us with its beauty and warm local charm.

In 2007 we moved to Kingsville, Texas. A very cool place but not 'the valley' and not the island. In 2008 we moved to McAllen, Texas -- getting closer! Finally, in 2011 we found our ideal property on South Padre Island. Special thanks goes to Shirley Donahue at Sand Dollar Realty for taking us all over the island several years to look at properties!

We love the island and our property. We believe you will too! After all, Life is better on the Beach!

Really enjoyed our stay at Florence 2. The beach, the pool,the proximity to the beach were awesome!

  • 4 of 5

We were very happy with everything. Had read reviews but everything bad on reviews had been taken care of. Our only regret was not having booked a longer stay. Am looking forward to the next trip and knowing we will get a discount will only make it better. Would definitely stay here again!

Sunny side up!

  • 5 of 5

We, mother and two grown daughters, loved looking at the ever changing ocean outside our balcony. The apartment was light and airy. Short walk to the beach. We enjoyed cooking, eating at the big kitchen table, sitting and talking on the really comfortable couch. The beds were great! (That is important to us). We spent the mornings in the air conditioned apartment. The balcony is south east facing and in October was majorly hot in the morning. Then the late afternoons we spent sitting on the beach ( The umbrella and chairs were provided), 'till the moon came out . Then we finished off with the hot tub. Communication with Verna was by text and very quick. Location, location location, the proximity to the water was the best point about this condo.

Wonderful Condo!

  • 5 of 5

Came for Sandcastle days with another couple who had never been to South Padre. Beautiful, well kept condo with great view and very convenient to Claytons, where the Sandcastles were. Comfortable beds and easy access to the beach. Loved waking to the sound of the waves and having coffee overlooking the water. Will definitely rent this condo again!

Clean, comfortable and convenient. We will definitely plan to rent again in the early summer

  • 5 of 5

We took our grandchildren to SPI to see the ocean for the first time they enjoyed playing on the beach. The property is so convenient right on the beach. It was awesome to wake up to the beautiful sunrise every morning. They are making plans to come back next summer and stay long

Beautiful beachfront view, great location close to restaurants

  • 3 of 5

Loved the location and being right on the beach, pool was nice. Hot tub was not clean. If you have a truck or large SUV, parking is difficult inside the parking garage. Condo was good. Decor was cute, beds comfy and liked 2 bed/2 bath plus washer/dryer was BIG plus. A few issues we had were just overall cleanliness. Dirty towels were hanging behind bathroom door when we got there so we washed them. Bathrooms were not cleaned well, hair all over tubs and in drains. Most disgusting was the diswasher. There was an odor in the kitchen when we got there. Opened dishwasher and food was in the bottom from previous guests. I ran the washer on quick wash to see if that would help. I never used it again. Loved that there was coffee pot and blender available. Also, thankful for the beach chairs, umbrella, boogie boards, & beach towels. We had everything we needed for fun times on the beach. Wifi was a plus! Overall, would stay here again if cleaning is better next time.

Owner's Response: We love all of the great comments you had. We were disappointed that the condo had mistakes in the housekeeping department. We rarely have problems with their service. They are very diligent and would have came promptly to fix their mistakes had you let us know. I just called them and alerted them and they are on their way to fix the dishwasher. We are glad you enjoyed everything else and had a great time.
