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 Gulf Coast

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. The third bedroom has twin beds, with the 3rd bathroom serving as the guest bath. All baths have tiled showers and hair dryers. The laundry room has a full-sized Maytag stacked washer and dryer. 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.

Fantastic Summer Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Ed and Mona Kellum for allowing our family to once again experience your warm and gracious hospitality thru the use of your very lovely, clean, well stocked and very updated condo. You guys continue to impress us with your thoughtful attention to detail. As we entered the unit upon arrival it felt just like we were coming home....Everything from the perfect climate control setting, cleanliness, and pleasant smell of freshness. Of course the view of the beach and the waves through the "Wall of Windows" says it all. Your extra touch with the welcome back note card was very thoughtful. We sincerely appreciated the opportunity to once again be "Kellum Guests".

Happy Trails,

Malcolm M.
