Snow to Sun was lots of fun.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed the activities and people at the park. Our only real problem was that the furniture was not comfortable and we had to borrow recliners from the neighbors so we could sit to watch tv. The kitchen was well stocked with pots and pans and we found everything we needed for our three month stay.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words about our home! When you called to ask if you could move a recliner in you told us it was because you were physically unable to get up off the couch. We hope your condition has improved. And thank you for your offer to purchase our home but we are not interested in selling at this point. We discussed your intent to return again next year so let us know soon so we can get it reserved for you while it's still available. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay!!

Nice quiet community

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in this cute little "bungalow." The kitchen is nicer than my kitchen at home and the beds were soooo comfy!! The hot tub was fantastic and we enjoyed playing pool in the evenings. My husband even got a workout in at the fitness center! Our trip into Mexico was a fun adventure. We plan to return when we have time to visit South Padre and the beach! Thanks so much for sharing your home with us!!

Great stay but stay on your toes will the maintenance!

  • 2 of 5

Very charming and comfortable trailer home in a gated and safe community. Our stay was pleasant except we had some difficulty locking the sliding door at this place and pay attention to the email and list of rules on top of the already flawed technical difficulties like AC, though owners are quick to respond which is great just don't have a too busy trip or you might just let something minor slip with the maintenance.

Owner's Response: We are sorry you had a difficult time with your "maintenance" of following our instructions. Our welcome email includes everything we think our guests may want to know about their stay. We prefer to provide too much information rather than too little. When you called us to inquire what we meant by, do not leave our thermostat on permanent hold, you did seem a bit confused. We have a wireless thermostat that our previous guests have been able to operate with no issues. We are glad to hear you enjoyed our home and the community!

Comfort of Home

  • 5 of 5

My family absolutely loved staying at this home. The homes location is perfect. Close to the highway, restaurant and 40 minutes away from South Padre Island. The home is in a gated community with a pool which made it a great bonus. The home is well maintained with all the comforts of a home. Me and my family will definitely come back again.

Better than any condo we have ever stayed.

  • 5 of 5

We have owned a two bedroom lockout timeshare on So Padre Island for 31 years. This home has 4 times the space as our condo with more amenities. It has a kitchen with all the gadgets we don't even have at home in Austin. With two shaded car ports (only needed one) we could park our car out of the hot south Texas sun. It included a heated pool and spa as well has a wonderful shuffleboard court.

We loved the close proximity to the Mexican border (8 miles on newly paved highway). Our daughter had to have extensive dental work so we selected a wonderful young dentist in Nuevo Progresso and saved about 66% compared to our local dentist.

We will certainly return if we ever have need for dental work in Mexico.

This was a good location for the places we wanted to see. The space worked very well for the four of us.
