Shack-Warming Party

As you may or may not have noticed, I have been a bit remiss in my blogging duties as of late. I have a pretty good excuse as I have been trying to get used to the fit of my newest hat --

Welcome to the era of sandy feet: innkeeper.

Last week I closed on the other half of my beach house. Fred Mallett - former SPI resident and alderman spent two years gutting the upstairs apartment and renovating it into a fairly awesome space which he never even got to enjoy before moving on to the greener pastures that are Port Aransas.

Well now “The SandBox Inn” is mine. All mine! (Well, actually I am in partnership with a lender -- a lender that wants a very big chunk of money each and every month. And let’s not forget Mom & Dad Feets, whose support was way more than.... just moral.) And I am busy putting my own imprint upon it - Nancy Marsden has dubbed it “Beach Shack Chic” and I am pretty sure it is the only rental on the island which offers a pool table, an upright piano, a sandbox and a bidet....

Anyway, I am doing short term rentals and invite you to stop by the website at if you or someone you know is looking for a truly unique place to stay on South Padre Island. And then you are also invited to see the place first hand at the “Shack-Warming Party” I am hosting this Friday, Feb. 23 upstairs at 117 E. Saturn starting at 5 PM.

Everyone is invited and if you are even a little bit curious about what it is like up there I would encourage you to drop by and see it for yourself. Do not feel obligated to bring anything at all* -- just come and see what I’ve been up to.

Here it is again:
117 E. Saturn Lane
Friday, Feb. 23, starting at 5 PM

Hope to see you there!

*but if you would like to, I sure could use some plants. Cuttings. Seeds. Whatever you have plenty of.
