About Lydia Casey

We are retired military of 26 years. GO NAVY

We recently moved from Va Beach to Florida. We visit the island 2-3 times a year. My kids enjoy the fishing, the surfing and the south Texas food! Be prepared to gain 10 pounds.

Overall, we are an honest and basic family doing the everyday things to raise great kids and have a strong marriage.

Lydia Casey purchased this house in 2003

Why Lydia Casey chose South Padre Island

Grew up in Brownsville Texas. South Padre Island has a lot of great memories.

We purchased this home so we always have a place to stay when we visit our family.

Having the beach 1 block away from the house makes this home special; we can visit family and have a beach vacation.

What makes this house unique

I love the house set up. We are all gathered in one big room, eating, cooking, watching tv or hanging out on the deck. The house has a great family gathering flow. We always have a great time when we visit.

Family Beach Trip

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to SPI. We love having a private home vs a condo. We travel with our dog and this house was perfect for that with the fenced yard. Ir is an older home but had everything we needed and is in a great location. We did have an issue with someone from a neighboring property parking in our drive the first day but we left them a note and they moved their truck and were checking out the next day anyway. SPI is a little busier than Port A where we have been in the past, especially at night, and the traffic flow took some getting used to and planning. There is beach access within walking distance or park at the entrance but we found those areas of the beach very crowded. If you want to park on the beach like us and not have others right next to you, you can drive down maybe 4 or 5 miles and pay to park on the beach. This was different for us. They don’t sell beach permits like at Port A so we had to pay each day but it is worth it. They also charge $2 for trash program and give you a bag and when you turn it in you get that money back. Lots of big shells in this area of beach. Be sure and visit he Sea Turtle hospital/refuge. We cooked some meals at home but ate out a few times and everything we ate was good. Good ice cream at JAX. We had a couple of fire work shows which was nice. Grocery store was not too too expensive. We visited Port Isabelle to see the lighthouse and Checked out pirate’s Landing. The guys booked a bay fishing trip from there and had a great guide. Dirty Al’s was very reasonably priced and very good. We also ate at Pier 19 in SPI. And PadreRitas. We tried to go to the amusement park across from us but there is no driving and parking. Whole area gets packed at night around there. It is only open at night. Did pass a fun looking place on the way but did not get a chanc to go. Overall we had a great trip and the homeowner was very responsive.

Great location!

  • 3 of 5

The house is in a wonderful location. It is close to the beach, shops, and restaurants. We could walk everywhere.

The kitchen was very well stocked.

The yard was not mowed so we could not enjoy it. The inside of the house was quite dirty. I purchased cleaning supplies to do some scrubbing.

The house is located at the center of the island. You only have to drive or walk a short distance to get to what you want. There is plenty of things to do; fishing, surfing, tubing, restaurants , movies, beach, bars, dance, water park, the list goes on and on.
