Guestbook comments from the owner

Our third stay at OVT203 - Another wonderful week!

Went back to OVT203 this year from June 1st to the 8th. Beautiful, spacious, 2nd floor condo on the beach. Two bedrooms include a Master suite with full bath and king tempurpedic bed. New bedroom furniture. The second bedroom has two new queen beds. There is a second bathroom with a large shower. Large balcony with an assortment of tables and chairs off the living room and master bedroom overlooking the pool and hot tub - with an amazing view of the beach. Also - you can grill on the balcony, which we did 4 times! (Bought a small grill at HEB for $16). Better view than most restaurants on the island! Very nice dining room table and chairs - and stools if you want to sit at the kitchen counter. Full kitchen with everything you need - pots, pans, utensils, silverware, coffee pot, etc., and a Bosch dishwasher. Unit also has a washer and dryer. Television in every room including a large flat screen in the living room and very comfortable couch, love seat, and recliner. Ocean Vista Towers is gated and you park inside the gated area. Private access to the beach. Combination locks on the gates and condo door so you never need a key. The grounds are beautifully kept. Something we discovered this year - you can see the Friday night fireworks from the front balcony - just walk out the front door! The owners (Robert and Geneva) are very helpful and even provide a binder with information on activities and restaurants on the island and in Port Isabel. OVT203 is also pet friendly pending approval by the owners, so our two small pups enjoyed themselves, too! We'll be going back!

Our stay was fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

Our entire experience exceeded our expectations! The owners were very timely in all of their responses and were awesome to work with. The condo was perfect, bigger than the pictures portray, and right on the beach. Condo was on second floor with very easy access via the stairs or elevators. Parking was never an issue, even for our guests that came and visited. Balcony was also much larger than expected which allowed us to spend ample time entertaining while listening to the waves. Nothing but positive things to say, we will absolutely be back.

The property was spotless and had everything we needed for a great stay.

  • 5 of 5

The beds were VERY comfortable, the check in and out process was so easy that it was like going home. The views and proximity to the beach were amazing. We got lots of chances to introduce our pups to the beach. Mixed reaction as they are still young and in the process of getting socialized with people. But we loved the opportunity to have them with us on our vacation. Richard and Gretchen were so easy to work with. We would definitely stay again and probably longer the next time. Last night my wife and I were saying, “I wish we had one more day.”.

Great family vacation condo! Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at many rental places in SPI over the years and this one was one of the best! The location on the beach provides the best views ever to wake up to, as well as a super short walk to the beach. The 2nd floor location meant no long rides on the elevator each way, which is nice actually. The condo property is well taken care of and has everything you would need like carts and secured parking. We never used the pools but they looked nice! The only thing that’s annoying is the “owners umbrellas and chairs” in front of the property which meant we needed to walk to the sides of the property to rent beach chairs and umbrellas or even set up our own. And the WiFi connection was horrible which, these days, is a real nuisance and an easy fix! Otherwise the condo was perfect and comfortable. The beds were comfortable and everything was clean and provided for. If the owners could fix the WiFi to provide a normal quality of connection - it would be perfect. Owners were super communicative and helpful. Thank you for a great stay!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. We are glad you had a great time and I am sorry about the WIFI. You are the first person to inform me of an issue with the WIFI so I will have to see what has happened. They upgraded our cable/internet system back in May. It was working when we left in early June so I am not sure what has happened. I appreciate you letting us know. We hope you return and visit us again! The Whalen's

Clean, well-equipped, location can’t be beat

  • 5 of 5

This is our 5th stay at this unit. Needless to say, we love it here. The grounds crew works hard to keep it clean and safe, and there’s a large grassy area for walking our dogs. It’s the perfect size for our family of 5 and two small dogs.

Convenient and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this place! The bed was super comfortable. The appliances and everything else were awesome. The building had luggage carts and grocery carts which made getting things upstairs a breeze. Amazing beach access and perfect location on the island.
