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!

Summer 2015

  • 5 of 5

The condo was everything we expected and then some more. The unit is in a corner and the balcony is huge! There is even a side balcony for the twin bedroom. Amazing views of the gulf from the balconies, the master bedroom, and the living room/kitchen. The condo is spacious and very well decorated. We particularly appreciated the high chair and pack & play for our youngest grandson. We had a blast and will plan to come back!

Comfortable wonderfully equipped Condo with amazing Views!

  • 5 of 5

Four of us spent Christmas week here. The condo is spacious, well equipped with EVERYTHING you need to cook, relax inside or be on the beach. Because it is a corner unit the views are great and the balcony large. The owners checked in to make sure we were okay when we arrived and during the week if needed. Needed a battery replaced for the door lock and the condo management was immediately available. Very secure and well located complex. You wouldn't be disappointed! (And the island is lovely!)

I highly recommend this condo its an excellent location. The condo is in prime condition, the beds are very comfortable, the owners have provided so many items to make the stay welcome and comfortable, even spices in the cabinets. They also have many brochures for most activities on the Island. I give this place five stars and two thumbs up!
