About Mike & Carolyn Patten

We are Mike and Carolyn Patten and we live in Houston, Texas. We fell in love with South Padre Island and the Rio Grande Valley on our first visit there. We love coming down with our family and friends to enjoy the beautiful beach and the peaceful island lifestyle. There are so many fun activities for people of all ages and interests. We have tried to provide every possible amenity that we could think of so that you and your family will feel right at home. We have been blessed with many fond memories here and we hope that you are able to create some of your own. We welcome you to come and enjoy our little piece of paradise! We welcome you to come and experience what we believe is the best that life has to offer!

Mike & Carolyn Patten purchased this condo in 2016

Why Mike & Carolyn Patten chose South Padre Island

Having been visitors/vacationers to the island for years, we ultimately chose to purchase at Ocean Vista Towers due to the quality, condition, and privacy of this condominium complex combined with the pristine beaches and breathtaking ocean views. We looked at many other condos but found that Ocean Vista Towers offered the best combination of everything we were looking for and its central location made it the stand out choice. We definitely made the right choice!

What makes this condo unique

Ocean Vista Towers is centrally located on South Padre Island. This twelve story condominium is located on the beach front and all units face the beautiful Gulf of Mexico. You are able to enjoy gorgeous sunrises in the morning and breathtaking sunsets in the evening from our 11th floor condo. This complex features two swimming pools, hot tub, tennis courts, basketball goal, children's adventure playset, cardio workout room, and gated parking for guest. The friendly, on-site management staff keeps everything in tip top shape.

The condo was beautifully furnished and very comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

All 6 of us truly enjoyed our stay at your condo. The kitchen was well appointed with every appliance one would need. My only complaint would be that you need to let your renters know what is supplied and what is not. We have rented many places and there is usually toilet paper, paper towels etc. when you arrive and we would just replace everything that we used for the next renters. We got there late in the evening and there was a 1/4 inch of dish liquid, 2 rolls of toilet paper and no tissues so we had to hit the store early the next morning.

The beach was lovely and we really appreciated the beach chairs and towels. I have already recommended your condo to my husbands office manager and her family so hopefully they will enjoy it as much as we did. Thank you for opening your home to us.
