About Jane Fulgham

My husband, Brant and I have been visiting South Padre Island every October for several years.It's beautiful all year round, but we love the fall for the cooler weather, sand castle days and the peaceful atmosphere. It's a wonderful place to visit year round. Every year we discussed buying a property on the island. Three years ago we decided to make that dream come true.

Jane Fulgham purchased this condo in 2015

Why Jane Fulgham chose South Padre Island

We looked at a number of properties in several different buildings. Ocean Vista Towers was the clear choice. It offered the full oceanfront setting we were looking for with a large balcony overlooking the beach. The unit we bought needed updating and decorating which we love to do. In addition, the building, pools and grounds are beautifully maintained. Purchasing and redecorating this unit allows us to have a high quality place for our family and renters to relax while visiting South Padre.

What makes this condo unique

This unit now offers you new stainless steel appliances, a true full size washer/dryer, new cookware, dishes and glasses in addition to all new linens, towels and beach towels. Bedrooms have been updated with new coverlets/bedskirts/pillows, mattresses and furniture. Living and dining areas have new furniture, fans and light fixtures. Entire unit has been repainted including walls, ceilings, doors and baseboards. New beach themed art also has been added. Storm shutters provide night time privacy and darkness. Light filtering motorized shades are available to filter the morning summer sun while still providing a view of the ocean.

Beautiful clean unit with an incredible view of the ocean!

  • 5 of 5

Amazing clean unit with great view of the ocean and beach. Was great to hear the waves at night with the door open. Only a few blocks away from all the great restaurants and locations to go see. Well thought out decor and all the amenities you need. Building, grounds and pool also clean and incredible. Owners also very easy to deal with and provided great information. Would rent again in a heartbeat! Thank you!

Beautiful condo,nice layout,amazing view

  • 5 of 5

From the time you walk through the front door you have an amazing view of the Gulf. The Condo is updated and has everything you need. I can't say enough about our stay there. So awsome waking up to that view of the beach and Gulf every morning. The pool and hot tub were clean and nice.and it was easy driving or walking distance to everything on the island. I can't recommend this condo enough! Our family enjoyed every second we were there. Having to leave was the only bad part

Great location, view and very well maintained.

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 2 adults and 2 teenage boys and 1 soft coated wheaten terrier stayed here for 5 nights. We cooked all our dinners in the condo which is very well equipped with cookware. The owners are incredibly responsive and accommodating. It is very clean and the beds are very comfortable. We definitely would stay here again.

Two years in a row and going strong!

  • 5 of 5

What can we say, Jane has it together when it comes to leasing out the condo. We booked with Jane last year and it was no dissapointment again this year. The condo is great, easy beach access is great, and Jane is great. She was yet again on top of making sure we had what we needed before our trip and was lightning fast with responding to our questions. The condo is great and has EVERYTHING you would ever need. My wife thought the shower head was a little too much and with the type of shower head installed but I thought it was fine. We hope to book again next year!!!

Owner's Response: Thanks, David for your second trip to our condo and for the great review. We had to replace a broken shower head in the master bath and the one the plumber put in delivers a strong spray. Some people love it and others may find it a little too strong. Hopefully, the shower in the other bathroom will be more to the liking of those who want a gentler spray. We aim to please! Hope to see you again next year! Jane
