Our neighbors own the condo at the Gulf-side beach. It's located on the 3rd floor. They keep it impeccably clean and organized. The decor - beach, of course - is tasteful in every way. The owners are friendly and helpful. Their condo has 3 bedrooms (1 a master bedroom), 2 baths, an open concept living area with kitchen, counter eating... More

The 2nd bedroom has 2 full-size beds, and a twin bed. The couch in the living room is a fold-out. The kitchen is... More

Went on a 5 night vacation in room 903. Our condo smelled like urine and mildew really bad. It ended up being the UNWASHED comforters on the bed (they hadn't been washed in a very long time...what does the $65 cleaning fee pay for?). When we stripped the beds to wash them ourselves, the washing machine didn't work. We had... More

When we first booked it on line, we were a little skeptical but the accommodations were excellent. The view from our 4th floor condo was superb and the private beach access was great as well. The condo was exactly as described and all the amenities and conveniences of home away from home. The only reason why I did not give... More

Very quiet resort and privately own condos. Nice pool and great boardwalk to the island. It is centrally locate in the middle of the island. Went through VRBO to rent this 3 bedroom condo which was roomy and well equipped with everything one needs for a relaxing vacation.

We rented a condo at Ocean Vista Condos from Padre Island Getaways. The people at Padre Island Getaways were nice, warm, friendly and helpful. The condos appear to be in great shape. A little noisy here at night but otherwise a great & location. The biggest downfall really is that it is SPI. In my opinion SPI is pricier than... More

This place is overly priced for what you get in your condos. You do get lots of roaches in your room. The condo looked extremely dirty. Let's just say, we were very uncomfortable and really did not enjoy our trip. When we brought our complaints to management, they were extremely rude and did nothing. Please do not stay at Ocean...

We stayed in a 9th floor condo for 5 nights. We were right on the beach. The complex is quiet, and well-maintained. There is a pool, kiddie pool (2 feet deep) and a hot tub.
