Guestbook comments from the owner

Our third stay at OVT203 - Another wonderful week!

Went back to OVT203 this year from June 1st to the 8th. Beautiful, spacious, 2nd floor condo on the beach. Two bedrooms include a Master suite with full bath and king tempurpedic bed. New bedroom furniture. The second bedroom has two new queen beds. There is a second bathroom with a large shower. Large balcony with an assortment of tables and chairs off the living room and master bedroom overlooking the pool and hot tub - with an amazing view of the beach. Also - you can grill on the balcony, which we did 4 times! (Bought a small grill at HEB for $16). Better view than most restaurants on the island! Very nice dining room table and chairs - and stools if you want to sit at the kitchen counter. Full kitchen with everything you need - pots, pans, utensils, silverware, coffee pot, etc., and a Bosch dishwasher. Unit also has a washer and dryer. Television in every room including a large flat screen in the living room and very comfortable couch, love seat, and recliner. Ocean Vista Towers is gated and you park inside the gated area. Private access to the beach. Combination locks on the gates and condo door so you never need a key. The grounds are beautifully kept. Something we discovered this year - you can see the Friday night fireworks from the front balcony - just walk out the front door! The owners (Robert and Geneva) are very helpful and even provide a binder with information on activities and restaurants on the island and in Port Isabel. OVT203 is also pet friendly pending approval by the owners, so our two small pups enjoyed themselves, too! We'll be going back!

Our stay was fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

Our entire experience exceeded our expectations! The owners were very timely in all of their responses and were awesome to work with. The condo was perfect, bigger than the pictures portray, and right on the beach. Condo was on second floor with very easy access via the stairs or elevators. Parking was never an issue, even for our guests that came and visited. Balcony was also much larger than expected which allowed us to spend ample time entertaining while listening to the waves. Nothing but positive things to say, we will absolutely be back.

Convenient and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this place! The bed was super comfortable. The appliances and everything else were awesome. The building had luggage carts and grocery carts which made getting things upstairs a breeze. Amazing beach access and perfect location on the island.

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

My family spent four nights in this condo and very much enjoyed it. The condo is well stocked with cookware, cleaning supplies, etc. The living room furniture accommodates the entire family comfortably (we had six people in our group). The beds are plush and comfortable. The owners are just a phone call away, should you need them. We were very pleased with this place.

Always Our Happy Place!

  • 5 of 5

We were once again lucky and blessed enough to spend 7 weeks in OVT #203. South Padre Island, Port Isabel and this condo = heaven on earth!! Geneva and Robert make booking, etc. so easy! The pictures don't do the condo justice... it is exquisite! The views are just awesome and the staff are extremely friendly and easy to work with. The book with all the restaurants is very helpful (see our review from last visit 2014 for details).

One new thing we learned this time is that Saida III on the north side of complex will rent you a nice beach set up and place it right at the edge of the property. This solves the issue of a Beach set up.

So much to see and do!! Our fur kids love it too!! Just perfect in every way. The food, fishing, golf, dolphins (only go with Scarlett, the Dolphin Whisperer), movie theater, book store, shopping and just relaxing watching the waves and/or sand crabs scurry......can't wait for our next visit!
