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!

Great getaway.

Proximity to beach is the closest I've experienced. Clean, quiet, and excellent air conditioning.

Outstanding beach front view!

  • 5 of 5

I enjoyed staying in this one-bedroom, fully-equipped condo for ten days in May. The owners are extremely attentive and the cleaning service is excellent. The only slight imperfection is that a bright outside light (from the adjacent Inverness complex) automatically comes on near sunset and shines in your face if you are seated on the balcony and facing due north. It is remedied by turning your chair to face due South, and it is not something within the owner's power to rectify. There is a handy reserved parking space (outside) for this unit and the elevator works well. All in all, a lovely spot for a couple.

Perfection on the Beach!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second year in a row to stay at this property and we will make our reservations soon for next year! The unit is spotless, comfortable, and tastefully decorated. It has everything you need along with comfy bed with nice sheets and thicker towels than what you get at most places we have stayed. The kitchen is well stocked and love the keyless entry and having WiFi for our phones (even though we try to keep them off when we're here!). Beach access with a hose for rinse off after the beach and pool is beach side if you're a pool person. Owner is always quick to respond to confirm and answer any questions. We love the location and can't say enough about the view! When we were there last week there wasn't hardly anyone on the beach and it was perfection! The weather was beautiful and we opened the sliding doors to hear the waves crashing. If you are looking for a great place to stay in SPI - look no further! And a gem of a place to eat - Gabriella's! Delicious Italian food! We will be back! Thank you Verna!

Fabulous ocean view

  • 4 of 5

If you want a place with direct ocean views, then this is the place for you. The condo is well appointed and nicely decorated. The location is close to everything you need. We hit SPI between spring break, so not a lot of crowds. The owners were great to work with. They went above and beyond when we had a few issues. Would rent again.

very well decorated and clean and lay out is great.

  • 5 of 5

Very beachy feel, clean, great layout, large open feel in living/dining room and nice compact kitchen and double sink in uncrowded bath space. love having separate bedroom. Felt secure, heated pool, elevator and parking space allotted. Great owner contact. Porch is small but seating adequate. Within walking distance from beach bar/food.

Fantastic view! Highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

We had some snags along the way, but overall we were very satisfied. Issues around making our 2nd payment got pretty frustrating. Notice that check-in is 3 PM, plan accordingly. Once you get in you can change the door code to something you can remember.

We loved the view especially, & we would definitely stay here again! The KING Tempur-pedic bed was great! The shower could use an update. There is a designated parking spot which is convenient. Security is good, a code to access the beach area, an outdoor shower and spray area to clean the sand off before you go back to your unit. Small outdoor pool & large whirlpool. There's a coin-operated washer/dryer on the 3rd floor landing. We were there the 2nd week in April for 5 nights. Temps lows 70°, highs 80° & windy every day (around 20 mph) but it didn't keep us off the beach. Even though rain & clouds were forecast every day, there was always some sun enough to enjoy being out. I suggest a jacket for early mornings.

The best food we had was at Sea Ranch. Other places we would highly recommend: Yummies, Gabriellas, Chilito Pikin (authentic Mexican... clean, good service and good food, but they need some BIG signage. We had trouble finding it even though we knew exactly where it was). Blackbeards was good but not exceptional, w huge portions.

The Birding Center was interesting, be prepared to be out in the sun. We were really glad we went to the Sea Turtle Rescue Center.

Shopping: We stopped at the Walmart at Port Isabel on our way to pick up groceries & toiletries. Our plane arrived at Brownsville at 11, so w groceries in the car, the 3pm check-in was kind of a problem. There is a CVS on the island & 2 grocery stores. We bought bottled water. At the grocery store you can refill a gallon jug for $.20. (An island resident told me that most people don't drink the water. And they don't recycle, which we found very strange.)

There is a Tuesday Morning store but since we were flying there wasn't much in there for me. ☹️ I bought items at a nice clothing store called Calypso & a shop next to Gabriellas called Islands.

We are already talking about going back there. We have been to Galveston, Tybee Island & Sanibel Island, & decided that SPI is our favorite beach area. Make sure you avoid spring break. We would like to take our kids & grandkids there during spring break. Sad that it is overrun so families can't go there then .
