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. 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!

Our stay at this condo was a wonderful experience for our family! The condo was so clean and inviting. There was so much room for a large family. The location was just perfect! It was close to the playground and the pool. The view from the balcony was spectacular which is my favorite part of relaxing! We had a wonderful stay and will be booking this condo on our next visit! Thank you Ed and Monna for sharing your condo!

Wonderful Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Ed and Monna have a beautiful space! Our extended family spent a relaxing week in this immaculate condo and loved every minute. The kitchen was well stocked, the appliances were spotless, beds were comfy, and the huge balcony provided the perfect place to watch the waves. We would recommend Ed and Monna's rental to anyone with zero reservations. We hope to be back ourselves for a second round.

I didn’t want to leave this lovely condo!

  • 5 of 5

No complaints for this perfectly situated condo on the beach. The complex is well maintained, and we loved the blue mesh walkway to the beach. This made for super easy transport for all of our beach accoutrements in our beach wagon. The condo was super clean, and came fully stocked, even beach towels, and a high chair for the grand babies. My only advice to future guests is the tile in and around the condo can be very slippery when wet so be careful when walking as not to slip. Edwin and Monna go above and beyond to make sure their guests have everything they need for a most comfortable and relaxing stay at their lovely condo!

Owner's Response: Dear Robin, I appreciate your review and your advice. We are constantly trying to modify things so every single guest can enjoy their vacation to the max. Tile can be slippery when is wet and I advice to keep it dry all the time. Please come back to Ocean Vista Towers 307 when your vacation calls for South Padre Island. Cheers!

Wall of Windows takes your breath away

  • 5 of 5

From the moment you enter the front door you understand why the owners use the title "Wall of Windows". This was our 3rd consecutive year to enjoy this property for our summer vacation and could not imagine returning to the Island without staying here.

The owners attention to detail is so appreciated and obvious with how well stocked the condo is. The cleanliness is five star. The owners and/or their rental manager always make a special effort to make contact with us prior to our visit.

I cannot say enough about how pleased we have been with our stay.

Hope to return next year as "Kellum Guests" if they allow us.
