About Angela

We purchased the condo in March 2015. We are career individuals who enjoy time with our family and need a place to unwind.

Angela purchased this condo in 2015

Why Angela chose South Padre Island

We fell in love with this unit as soon as we walked in. The colors and warmth has a homey feel. The gated community all around the property gives us the added protection of security. We love sitting out on the balcony having cocktails, watching the waves and pelicans fly by.

What makes this condo unique

This condo is one of the nicest condos I've seen on the island. Completely remodeled kitchen, bathrooms, and colorful art work. We take excellent care of our property and hope that our guests will also.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This was some feedback I received from one group who stayed:

Our stay at Ocean Vista unit 406 was wonderful from the moment we stepped into the condo; the decor was beautiful and was well stocked with kitchen utensils and even games for the kids. The unit is conveniently located within walking distance to stores and restaurants. We left the curtains opened at night in the master bedroom so we could wake up and enjoy the beautiful sunrise over the ocean and watch the waves rolling in.

Through the years I have vacation many places and I can honestly say this condo was so comfortable and was much more than what we expected it to be. We have scheduled another trip this summer to return to South Padre Island and stay at unit 406 with our grand daughters so they can enjoy the closeness of the beach and build sand castles.

This is a terrific condo. The interior is beautifully designed and very comfortable. The views are fabulous. Just head downstairs and you are on the beach. It was very quiet while we were there, so the sleeping was good. The beds were very comfortable. I wouldn't change a thing.

If you are headed to SPI and looking for a 2 bed 2 bath condo, you can't do better than this!

Love this place

  • 5 of 5

fantastic accommodations! Have used Angela in the past as well as this trip and she is amazing as are the condos we have stayed in! We have enjoyed our accommodations and services every time we stay. If I could give it 10 stars I would!! We have stayed at a few different Ocean Vista Condos all are nice and have basic necessities along with things you might have forgot at home. The beach is literally right at your back door and if you have a balcony facing the beach it is amazing to watch the sunset and to wake up to in the morning. I would recommend this property above all others I have stayed at in South Padre.

We truly enjoyed our stay! The condo was very nice and they have everything that you would need to make it feel like home! They view is spectacular and you can't ask for better beach access. We truly loved how everything was within walking distance. Angela was great to work with and was so helpful with providing everything we needed! We will definitely stay here again! Thanks for sharing your home with us!
