New to Southern Journeys, Mrs. Davis wasn’t sure what to expect from her membership. She and her family decided to visit South Padre Island, Texas and were pleasantly surprised with the result. The property was not only spacious (more than enough space for six people) but also clean, beachfront and felt like, “being at a tropical resort,” according to Mrs. Davis.

Everything about the accommodation was set up to ensure that guests have the best possible beach vacation. Mrs. Davis reports that there were restrooms on the bottom floor so guests would not have to travel all the way back to their rooms after coming on and off the beach. “I’ve never seen beach bathrooms so clean,” she said. “There wasn’t even sand on the floor.” There is a hot tub and large pool as well which were also well-maintained and clean.

When the Davis party was finished swimming they enjoyed a breathtaking horseback ride on the beach. “They take you right into the surf.” Evenings were spent grilling on the patio. The patio area is shaded against the hot Texas sun with full awnings instead of just beach umbrellas and comes with BBQ pits for outdoor grilling. Some nights Mrs. Davis and her group would go across the street to Captain Roy’s, a hole in the wall restaurant with excellent food and great atmosphere. “They’ll cook anything you catch,” she says. “We kept going back again and again.” Mrs. Davis also recommends Clay’s for the “best hamburgers you’ve ever had.” On Fridays, she suggests going to the park for free live concerts.

Mrs. Davis was so thrilled with her vacation that she plans to return to South Padre Island and stay at the same property. She’s also currently planning a trip to Wisconsin. “Booking was easy. I talked to one person who stayed in constant contact through email.” At Southern Journeys we strive to make all of our member’s vacations as fun and memorable as the Davis family. If you have traveled with us, and have a vacation story you’d like to tell, give us a call at Membership Services and let us know how you made new memories with Southern Journeys.
