About Carolyn and/or Ron Altstadt

Retired school teachers from IN, we have been enjoying winters on South Padre Island for 20 years, and decided it was time to own our place.

Carolyn and/or Ron Altstadt purchased this condo in 2013

Why Carolyn and/or Ron Altstadt chose South Padre Island

We have wintered here for 12 years and love everything about Ocean Vista Towers: its location about mid-island, the management and staff, and friendly, helpful neighbors.

What makes this condo unique

The fabulous sunrises from the balcony or master bedroom and the sunsets from our entrance on the West. Immediate access to the beach.

Wonderful condo on the beach with great views!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this condo. There was plenty of room for everyone to relax and do their own things. The views are amazing and peaceful. Our four year old loved the pools and the beach. Very short walk to the beach. We had a blast looking for sand crabs at night. We would highly recommend staying here.

Beautiful, perfect for our stay.

  • 5 of 5

The condo was very roomy and beautiful. We loved how updated it was. It was our first time in Ocean Vista and will not be our last. We wished that we could have rented the umbrella & chairs for our stay.

Highly Recommended

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time to use VRBO and what an excellent experience. The condo and property exceeded our expectations. When you first arrive, there are luggage carts and shopping carts easily accessible to help get your belongings to the condo and the elevator is fast. The condo itself is very well stocked with essentials -- cooking utensils, etc. The washer and dryer was essential for us traveling with small children. We were able to enjoy the beach and the pools were great. On Thursday and Fridays during the summer there are fireworks and that you can see from the breezeway. We will definitely stay here again.

Highly Recommend

  • 5 of 5

Hubby and I recently stayed here with our 2 kids (14 and 10). Beautiful views with short walk to beach. Comfortable furnishings and well stocked kitchen (pots, pans, utensils, etc). Excellent communication with the owner, Carolyn. Only recommendations would be to have iron & ironing board and DVD player available. Highly recommend this condo and hope to stay here again soon!

Better than advertised

  • 5 of 5

My family and I just stayed a week here and it was great! It was clean, with nice furniture and bedding, and kitchen utensils and appliances. View was spectacular of the gulf as well.

Pool, hot tub, was as advertised, and the beach was great with soft sandy bottom and lots of room for kids to play!

Overall we could not have been more happy
