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.

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.

The owner was very quick to respond to any questions and was very helpful. The kitchen was stocked very well ,air conditioner worked great and the beds were very comfortable. The condo was updated and is one of the nicer condos in this complex. Definitely would stay here again.

Great stay in SPI

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in this condo in May, 2016. There were 8 of us in the condo and we had plenty of room. My husband and I, our son and his wife, and 4 grandkids ages 1-10. The condo was lovely, the pool was great and of course the beach was awesome! The condo complex is very nice and very good to work with. Cindy in the office was very accommodating with any of our needs. The only complaint we had is that we were not aware that we needed to buy all of our housekeeping supplies. There was no dishwasher detergent or dish soap and no extra paper towels or toilet paper and no kleenex.

All in all, it was a great vacation spot!! We plan to visit SPI again and will try to rent this same condo!

Million Dollar Views !

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a very well appointed condo with all of the amenities, you have found it. The cleanliness, furnishings, ocean views are beyond reproach. The property is gated, conveniently located within walking distance to grocery and convenience stores, kid friendly, and is has a nice pool & hot tub looking out over the gulf. The owner is very friendly and accommodating, and ensured our arrival and departure was hassle free. After fifteen years of renting condos along the Texas Coast, I believe we have found our home away from home.

Awesome location

  • 5 of 5

Loved our stay, the condo was large, spacious, clean and well appointed. The view and the location were perfect. There were six of us and the number of rooms and beds fit our needs to a "T". The large open kitchen / living area was a favorite space for all of us to relax and interact.
