This is an answer for all those complaints about rentals at Ocean Vista Towers in South Padre Island TX. If you are looking to rent a condo in the building, be aware: “A large majority of the owners do not like rentals!” The employees and management ONLY answer to the owners and are not employed to cater to the renters. This is not a HOTEL.
Each morning the condo management put out umbrellas and chairs for condos, yes we do. Those umbrellas are OWNED by the owners of each unit and as well as you, we have the right to set them anywhere on the beach. Last time I checked, SPI’s beach is for the public. We put the umbrellas in the middle because we have the right to do so. I wonder why your friend could not move left or right to set his canopy…
If the pool is filthy, we only blame the rentals. They are the only ones that do not care about the building. We the owners pay thousands on monthly and special assessments, insurance, etc. and we take care of our property. Our maintenance cleans the pool once a day. We, the owners cannot use the pool facilities on high season for that same reason. So you see, the rentals take over our building all the way from the end of May to mid August.
If the condo you stayed at was not well maintained or smell like rotten egg, why did you complain to Service 24? They are managing that particular unit. The same with the Rules and Regulations of the House, it is the obligation of Service 24 to give you those rules so you read them to avoid an early call like the one you had. To tell you the truth, the hanging towels make the building look like a ghetto. We are a 1st class beach front resort and we do not allow ghetto habits.
FYI, the money you paid Service 24 for the rental, is only shared between Service 24 and the owner of the unit. Ocean Vista Building gets $0 or nada or caput. On the other hand, the cost for the repair of any damages created on the common grounds of the building and the extra work of our maintenance personnel is shared by all the owners!
Gee, we are glad you aren’t coming back!
