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 Gulf Coast

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!!!!

We LOVED staying in this unit at Ocean Vista Towers! Even better than the pictures. Comfortable and large enough for four adults and four kids. We just had a wonderful time and would recommend it to anyone looking to vacation in SPI! Thanks!

Beautiful place, perfect location on the beach

  • 5 of 5

We had a family of 7 staying here including 3 children 4-8. The condo is beautiful! Tastefully decorated for a perfect stay on the beach. Wonderful evenings and early morning coffee were spent on the patio watching and listening to ocean. Our first day, we drove up to a public beach and spent $10 per vehicle ; thinking we would find more privacy. The rest of our stay, we used the beach in front of the condo. It was less crowded, more private and beautifully groomed every morning. It is such easy access to and from the condo and after walking on the beach and looking at other places, this building has one of the best and easiest walkways to the beach. The kitchen was well stocked with your everyday needs. The oversized washer and dryer were extremely useful. Some suggestions for those planning on visiting. Bring your own shampoos, laundry soap, condiments, napkins and flashlights (for nighttime beach expeditions). Beach chairs, water toys, beach towels are provided. We definitely plan on returning to this beauty! It felt like our beach home!

Beautiful penthouse, stunning view - perfect family trip

  • 5 of 5

We're from San Antonio & have been to Padre several times and stayed at several VRBO properties. This Thanksgiving, we stayed at Ocean Vista Towers 1204. First of all the view from the 12th floor is breathtaking. If you love the sound of the ocean, if you love to gaze at the waves, this penthouse has all of that and more. It's a three bedroom, three bathroom property. Every bathroom is updated, beautiful and impeccably clean. The bedrooms are large, with lovely furniture and linens. I loved the kitchen, which had everything you could need for every day eating and when cooking up a special meal. Modern appliances - dishwasher, new microwave, coffee maker (drip and K-cup), refrigerator with water & ice dispenser. Every room has a TV. The living room has cable and movie channels as well as a Blu Ray player. The wi-fi connection was great. Both the living room and the master bedroom have floor to ceiling windows overlooking the balcony and beach. At least twice a day my husband and I sat on the balcony enjoying our coffee and gazing into the beautiful Gulf of Mexico. Furniture throughout was so charming. Seating for 10 between the dining table and bar. Ocean Vista Towers has great amenities - heated hot tub and kiddie pool, large swimming pool, play-scape, tennis court, mini-gym, basketball hoop, volleyball court & secure boardwalk to the beach. It was hard to leave & I hope we can one day go back to 1204.

It was more than than we imagined ...

  • 4 of 5

This was our second vacation to SPI and second condo rental. The unit we rented this trip easily accommodated all 6 adults. The kitchen area was large and spacious - more than we needed really. Appreciated the size of dining table to. The bed in the master bedroom was a little too stiff for our tastes but the vanity area being separate from commode/shower and the large walk-in closet (with mirror doors) were definite pluses. Being on the 12th floor - fabulous views of the gulf and the bay!

Quality/preference of restaurants in the area were mixed. Only one really negative experience with a breakfast place. Overall, will strongly consider renting here again for a larger number of people like we had this year.
