Just what I wanted and needed

  • 5 of 5

The description and photos of this place are definitely accurate. It was exceptionally clean and it had everything I needed for my stay. Lots of space, right on the beach, comfortable accommodations, very safe environment with the gated parking. Comfortable bed, great bathrooms. There were 2 very minor issues (a can opener and having trouble locking the deadbolt) which were rectified right away once I notified them. I had to end my trip abruptly due to a personal situation and had to leave in a hurry. I didn't ask for a refund of the remaining days but the owner surprised me with one. I will definitely be back when I'm headed to SPI!

Very very clean

  • 5 of 5

This condo was perfect. Never using VRBO before, we were skeptical about the cleanliness. This place was close to impeccable. The view is terrific and the location is accessible to everything the island offers. Our 2 1/2 yr old daughters first beach experience couldn't have been better. A couple things to beware of, the island is very humid as expected. If you leave the patio doors open, as we did for the fresh air and sound of the waves, the saltillo tile becomes very, very slippery. We actually had to try and dry it quite often. You could see the moisture on the tile. Other than that, my wife and I both agreed if we come back we will stay here.

Owner's Response: Good morning Dan, Thank you so much for your kind review. You are right, because of the humidity we have to keep the doors closed. We also love the ocean breeze and the sound of the waves so we use the balcony a lot!!! We would love to see you coming back! Best regards, Tere & Joe

Great Views

  • 5 of 5

The condo was great. The weather could have been better the fist half of the month, however, we never know what we will have until that TIME. Once the fog lifted and the rain stopped, we had had a wonderful time. My husband fished right on the beach in front of the condo, and caught many fish. We had family come to visit , and they really enjoyed themselves.

There were a few things that I would suggest that you take care of. There were no dish cloths and not enough dish towels. We needed bath mats in the bathrooms, and I did go to Walmart to purchase one for the master bath. I would also suggest that you put hooks on the inside of the bathroom doors for more hanging space, Especially wet towels and a robe. We also thought that the clothes washer was very noisy, but it worked!!

The entire condo building was meticulous and very secure. The staff were very friendly and always taking care of the grounds. We are coming back again next year for the month of April. We decided to rent a three bedroom this time, and thought that April would maybe have better weather. We would recommend your condo to anyone who is looking for a 2 bedroom.

Owner's Response: Hello Linda, Thank you for your input. We will be doing a Spring review of the inventory and will replace and buy what is needed for the comfort of our guests. Next time while you are here in April, if you need anything, please make sure that you call us. We are local and at easy reach. We are glad you are coming back to Ocean Vista Towers. Our complex is awesome! We hope you have a safe and healthy year and we'll see you in April 2016! Our best, Tere & Joe

My fiends and I stayed here for 3 nights. This place is clean, close to the beach and has a great view. Just make sure you bring your own toiletries as there is no bath soaps provided.

General Info About South Padre Island, Texas

South Padre Island is part of the world’s longest barrier reef island and is located near the most southern portion of Texas. The island is connected to the mainland by the Queen Isabella Causeway, a 2.5-mile four-lane bridge with reported crossings of over 8 million per year. Plans are underway for a second access north of the current town limits and the extension of utilities to undeveloped parts of the island has already begun. The town of South Padre Island makes up only 5%-10% of the land that is available for development.

The community of South Padre Island is a township located in Cameron County with approximately 2,800 permanent year-round residents. However, many more Winter Texans or part-time residents claim South Padre Island as home for large portions of the year. It is also a popular destination for Mexican citizens, particularly those from Monterrey, Mexico.

South Padre Island is located at the same latitude as Miami, Florida. The Island enjoys a sub-topical environment with an average winter temperature of 65 degrees, an average summer temperature of 82 degrees and an average 253 days per year of sunshine.

The town's total area is about 1,200 acres on an island approximately 1/2 mile wide from beach to bay and 34 miles long. South Padre Island is bordered by the Gulf of Mexico on the east and by the Laguna Madre Bay on the west, one of only 5 hyper-saline bays in the world. The only saltier body of water in the U.S. is the Great Salt Lake. This unusual bay is home to diverse species of fish as well as sea turtles, dolphins, endangered brown pelicans and numerous other forms of marine and coastal wildlife.

Life on South Padre Island

South Padre Island is a small community. Our tropical weather and miles of beachfront make the island a tourist attraction and year-round delight for those of us who are fortunate enough to call South Padre Island our home. Here we put more miles on our bicycles than our cars, and the pace of life is decidedly slower than it is on the mainland. Island time means that you stop to marvel when the sun sets and forsake work for fishing or the beach every chance you get.

Among the locals, eccentric is the norm, and shorts are acceptable attire anywhere. The various tourist seasons cause the population to swell and shrink with families on summer vacation, Winter Texans escaping the chill of northern states, and spring breakers enjoying a holiday (despite what you hear, they really are nice kids).

South Padre Island has a council-manager form of government with a Board of Aldermen, consisting of a Mayor and five Aldermen. The City Manager is the chief executive officer of the town.

South Padre Island belongs to the Point Isabel Independent School District. Daily school bus service shuttles school age children across the bridge to Port Isabel's quality schools. Parks on the island include county parks Isla Blanca and Andy Bowie.

South Padre Island is an amazing destination for all kinds of water sports. We are considered the best location in the country for kite boarding. Windsurfers also come from all over the country to enjoy our breezy shallow bay. South Padre Island also offers vacationers a wide range of other activities: kayaking, parasailing, jet skiing, snorkeling/diving, horseback riding, bungee jumping, sun bathing, kite-flying, and sandcastle building just to name a few. We are fortunate and blessed to have it all.

With shallow sport fishing in the Laguna Madre Bay as well as great deep sea fishing in the Gulf of Mexico, there is a fishing expedition to fit every time frame and skill level. The area is famous for our bird watching and with our 'World Birding Center' is one of the best informational and interactive bird watching sites anywhere. The island is also home to “Sea Turtle, Inc.”, a sea turtle rescue, education and conservation center.

An excellent golf course is only 15 minutes away and we have some wonderful seafood dining, waterfront bars and live entertainment. Special activities occur throughout the year. During the summer, every Friday night is a celebration with fireworks over the bay. The island is host to several large fishing and water sport tournaments. Numerous festivals, such as “Bike Week” and “Sand Castle Days”, are annual events. The island boasts a large, beautiful convention center where concerts, craft shows, sporting events, and business conferences are held.

We are different from other south coastal areas in that our high tourist season is the summer as opposed to the winter. The highest tourist months are normally March (Spring Break), June, July and August, followed by the winter months when Winter Texans (our term for “Snow Birds’) populate the island in December, January and February.
