About Roccy Raymond

We had family that wintered in South Texas for many years before we decided to purchase our place on South Padre Island. During our visits we decided that we love the ocean. The sounds, the activities, and the South Padre beach in particular are what draw us to this area. We have spent many happy days on the island since we purchased the unit. We look forward to more winter relief once we both retire.

Roccy Raymond purchased this condo in 2006

Why Roccy Raymond chose South Padre Island

We love Ocean Vista because of it's location. Right on the ocean but you can also see the bay and the fireworks from the front. Sunrise in the morning and sunsets in the afternoon. It is within walking distance of anything you need: grocery store, bars, and restaurants and shopping. Well kept building and grounds in a great location with a beach to walk and play on right outside your door.

What makes this condo unique

We have been able to enjoy time with family and friends while we enjoy the South Texas area. We especially enjoy long walks on the beach, watching our grandchildren play in the sand and spending time in the pool and the hot tub. Children and grandchildren grow up too fast so it is great to spend time with all of them. It is wonderful that they all enjoy their time here, too.

We also enjoy dolphin watching and fishing in the bay and the ocean. There are so many good restaurants where we can get fresh seafood whenever we want it.

One of the best!!!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this absolutely beautiful condo! We have rented condos on the Texas coast for over 30 years and I can honestly say this may be best one yet! The recent remodeling job is lovely and the condo was well equipped with everything we needed (and more). The view is spectacular from the 12th floor and we especially loved the 6 comfortable deck chairs that were all tall enough to look OVER the balcony railing instead of THROUGH it (so many condos lack this). We also appreciated the fact that Ocean Vista did not feel like it was overly crowded during our stay. Pool and grounds are well maintained. We hope to come back soon!!!!

Perfect for family of 8!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed every minute of our stay in 1204. We stayed here for Thanksgiving 2017, 5 adults and 3 children, and we had more than enough room for all. The unit had been completely remodeled and everything is very nice. Beds comfortable, all the kitchen supplies one could want to cook thanksgiving dinner. Directly on the beach with beautiful view to wake up to every morning. When we come back I hope to stay here again. Thank you from our family to yours!

Perfect place to stay at South Padre

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to stay! Our group (adult, two kids and grandma) all had a super time.

The condo itself is wonderfully decorated and stocked with all the things needed. The kitchen had everything needed, beach chairs and umbrella were provided. Super clean and well maintained.

The balcony has a spectacular view with nice, high chairs to be able to gaze out at the Gulf. Even saw dolphins frolicking in the waves one morning.

Location couldn't be better...just down the elevator and a one minute walk to the beach.

The one (and only one) thing that could have been done is to include shampoo and soap in the showers...for some reason VR owners/managers don't fully appreciate the frustration of not having those available. But that's a small point relative to all the wonderful things about this home.

What a wonderful place! We'll be back!

What a wonderful place to stay. It had everything a person needed, beach chairs, umbrella, toys, and towels. Every morning my family set outside to watch the sun rise before breakfast. Great memories with our family.
