Padre Getaways About Our Team

Each and every one of us are ready to help you find the right location for your South Padre Island Getaway and are here to greet you personally when you arrive on the island.

Elena

Elena (E2) and Shelbee Rose (Shelbee Rose is the DIVA of Padre Getaways - she will greet guests when she wants to)

 

Elena is our manager and reservation specialist. She is bilingual so she is equally qualified to help you in English or Spanish. She knows the island and our properties well and will get to know you in the first phone call so she can find you the perfect property for your getaway and when you arrive make sure that you have a great stay.

Jessica

Jessica and Ellee May (Ellee May thinks she is a Shih Tzu so we do not tell her otherwise. She greets every guest with unconditional love.)

 

Jessica studied in New York before graduating from UT Brownsville with a degree in communications and is responsible for keeping our guests informed thru our custom Padre Getaways APP. But she is also ready to help you with a reservation when you call or with guest services when you arrive on the island. Jessica is also bilingual.

Eleana

Eleana (E1) and one of the unidentified fluff balls on the Padre Getaways Team

 

Eleana is a CPA and a Real Estate Broker so that makes her the logical choice for CFO. As our Greek Eleana, she has to rely on the Spanish Elena to translate for our Spanish speaking guests and clients. After starting her career in public accounting, Eleana was the Tax Director and CFO of private companies in the hospitality and entertainment industries before moving to South Padre Island full time. Eleana serves on the City of South Padre Island Hotel Tax Task Force, the board of directors of Property Owners Who Care (POWC-SPI) and the South Padre Island Parks and Recreation Committee.

Wally

Wally, Ellee, and Shelbee Rose

 

Wally founded Padre Getaways in 2007 and is our CEO, or as Shelbee Rose refers to him: the Alpha Dog. Wally was the CEO of public and private companies in the hospitality industry from Dallas to Chicago and back, before moving to South Padre Island full time. Wally is the chairman of the South Padre Island Convention and Visitors Advisory Board, and is the President of the Sunchase IV Homeowners Association.
