Padre Getaways Our Owner Testimonials

A first class property management group which insures that only first class renters occupy your South Padre second home. They take care of your property like, well, it was their own.

Padre Getaways is great. Wally and Eleana Jones are experts: highly competent, totally honest, and fun to work with. They know how to attract renters and then make them happy so they keep coming back. As owners, that makes us happy. And we have been more than satisfied with Padre Getaways since we signed up with them at their start up

Several years ago SPI Investment Group was looking for a rental company to manage several properties we own. Fortunately I knew what it would take to be successful. The company had to be dedicated to rental management. Not someone who spreads themselves thin offering many services. I needed someone who would take personal interest in our units. One that could build a returning clientele by giving them great service, clean units and the best accommodations. 

Fortunately I was introduce to Wally and Eleana Jones, owners of Padre Getaways. Their company was new on the Island but from our discussion I knew they would work extremely hard to get our units rented throughout the year. They exceeded our expectations. They and their outstanding staff are advocates for our units, working with our guests to ensure that their experience is enjoyable. They address any maintenance issues promptly. Our units are always spotless when we and our guests arrive. And most importantly, they are just wonderful, respectful people who enjoy their work.
