About Edwin and Monna Kellam

We are retired teachers from Harlingen ,TX , in the beautiful Rio Grande Valley. We’ve lived here for over 20 yrs., and visit South Padre Island often. We’ve hoped to have our own vacation home here at SPI, and we are happy to say we have our wonderful “home away from home”, that we’d like to share with you, here at the Ocean Vista Towers!!

Edwin and Monna Kellam purchased this condo in 2014

Why Edwin and Monna Kellam chose South Padre Island

Ocean Vista Towers is a wonderfully landscaped and maintained condominium complex, which is next to the soft sandy beach. It’s just a few steps away from our 3rd story condo. We have a fantastic eye-level view of the blue Gulf of Mexico through the wrap-around picture windows, or out on our oversized patio. We enjoy sitting on the patio watching the water and waves roll in. Strolling along the beach, finding shells, watching the occasional dolphins swim by. There’s deep-sea and bay fishing and numerous other water activities. Of course, there’s nothing that compares to the gorgeous sunrises and sunsets over the gulf and bay! No matter which season it is, there’s always something to do here. We love the slower pace of the SPI lifestyle, and we’d welcome you to come and relax and enjoy our condo in this tropical vacation spot!

What makes this condo unique

This condo has been beautifully renovated. There is a large living area, connected to a fully- equipped kitchen. A round dining table seats 6, and there are 4 counter stools. There are three roomy bedrooms, which sleep 8. The master bedroom has a king-size bed with a bathroom en suite. The second bedroom has 2 double/full beds with a bathroom en suite.

There is a TV in every bedroom and the living room. There is cable TV, free wi-fi, and internet. The convenience of our condo complex is it’s in a great location: just walking distance to a grocery store, several restaurants, gas stations, beach shops, and water sports. Another convenience is the free city bus “The Wave”, which runs on a great schedule for those without a vehicle and goes as far as Port Isabel. This condo is recommended for families with children of all ages, adult couples’ retreats, romantic getaways, ladies and gentlemen getaways, adventure seekers, sightseers, birdwatchers, fishing galore, tourists without a vehicle, and any sun, sand, and beach lovers!

Beautiful Condo, lovely decor and right on the beach!

  • 5 of 5

This place was just PERFECT!! We stayed with 3 kids, 1 baby and 4 adults over a long weekend. This place is so tastefully decorated and is so spacious! The twin beds were perfect for our kids, master bed faces the ocean, fully equipped kitchen was awesome and then the porch facing the ocean perfect for late evenings!

All the more- it is right on the beach. Just walk out down to the first floor and you step out to the private access beach. Also very close to schlitterbahn, restaurants and pier.

All in all we couldn't have been in a more perfect place! Thank you.

Perfect location with everything within walking distance, grocery store (IGA), bars, restaurants and stores. Everything you could possibly need in this condo with a large deck and great views directly on the beach. The owners and management were very attentive to our stay. We look forward to our next visit. Don't forget your passport for a nice day trip to Nuevo Progresso.

The condo is fully stocked. The only suggestion I have is tell people that you have many beach items to use. Seems that several of us have bought beach items and left with your previous collections. The closet are getting full.

Owner's Response: Hello James, We are glad to know that you enjoyed your time by the beach!! It is crazy that we didn't realize that people are leaving beach toys behind taking the closet space. We will go to clear them and leave what we think kids can use to play. Please come back to us when your travels call for South Padre Island. Thank you for your patronage and your review. Cheers!
