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!

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!
This is our 2nd stay and found consistency a year later. Space is clean, outfitted, and accommodating. Smartly decorated with modern furnishings and latest technologies. Very homey feel with great Gulf view. Facility is kept clean and landscaped nicely. It is secure and well-lit. Restaurants and other amenities are nearby. Thoroughly enjoyed our stays here and will return.
The inside of this condo is beautiful and the grounds are kept very clean. All appliances were very modern and the beds were very comfortable. We truly enjoyed our time here. Great for a small family. The owners answered all questions quickly. Great location too in the middle of the island. Less than 10 minutes to any activity. The only thing I would recommend are instructions on which remote to use for the TVs! I'm sure I could have asked the owner, but I didn't come to Padre to watch TV. I only tried once and found the TV in the den to be confusing. Overall, we had a great week here and would definitely recommend this condo to friends and family.
We loved being able to quickly and easily access the beach and local amenities.
* Location: Two blocks from Blue Marlin grocery store and other shopping. You can't get any closer to the beach!
* Property amenities: Playscape, kiddie pool, hot tub, adult pool, tennis courts, sand volleyball, and pergola.
* Condo - Clean, nicely decorated and spacious. Large balcony with tables and chairs. A binder of menus and suggested eateries help decision making when you want to go out for a meal. The comforts of home (fully stocked kitchen accessories, cable TV, internet, washer/dryer) make this better than any hotel stay.
* Note to future renters - You will need to rent an umbrella and chair or bring your own for the beach. Bring your own sand toys. We were able to see fireworks from balcony at front door.
The owners communicated quickly, provided excellent guidance to help us prepare for our stay and processed all payments/refunds quickly. All went smoothly. We would love to return. It was a comfortable and lovely stay.
This condo was everything that the owners promised. It was clean and pretty, well decorated, comfortable and right on the beach!! There was a lot less to do on the island than I had expected, and we spent a lot of time in the comfortable condo. Everything worked and all the appliances made cooking a meal easy. It had everything we needed including an awesome view! Plus the owners were readily available with any questions or needs. I highly recommend this condo as a great destination for sun beach and fishing :). Supreme location for the fireworks displays !!
