Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: We are professional people who located to Corpus Christi because of the excellent beaches close to the community. There's always something fun to do: festivals, jazz & symphony concerts, live music, dancing, swimming, surfing, fishing, etc. Wonderful restaurants! We have retired from the medical field, and take pride in our 'White Glove Treatment' of the Beach House, in between guests. We wouldn't rent out a house which we couldn't feel comfortable sleeping in ourselves! Most of our guests feel that the customer service is excellent--but, if not--we are only a phone call away! Text or call us until 10 p.m. Thank you!

Why the Owner Chose Corpus Christi:
North Padre Island is a little-known Paradise, across the JFK bridge, ten minutes from Corpus Christi! The Beach House is about ten minutes from the grocery store, loaded with fresh seafood. Or try Paul's Seafood in Four Bluff, just over the bridge and open daily. Movie theater ten minutes away; close to great restaurants. And there is NO WAIT at the restaurants! How about that? :) Port Aransas is an additional twenty minutes of driving, but filled with many other restaurants. Our new water park, Schlitterbahn, may be completed this summer. Because of the new water park coming in soon, we have experienced a building boom lately, including many new restaurants within a mile of driving. Wear your shorts and t-shirts to most of these restaurant, or swim suits and cover ups to Mikel May's on Bob Hall Pier (new and outside).

The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
1) One block from Windward Beach, which is free, and offers a great area for walking & surfing. 2) Great restaurants, offering wonderful seafood, CA cuisine, Italian, Mexican,gourmet burgers, along with imported beers-- and whatever else you crave, with just a short 5-15 minute drive. Usually no wait for a table! 3) Easy to get here from Corpus Christi proper, or San Antonio, or Houston. Straight freeway driving from I-37 S. onto North Padre Island Drive (SPID) to the 'Island'. (Map attached). We're right off the Whitecap exit to the left, onto Leeward Drive, #803. Yellow & white buildings, with plenty of parking for boats & cars along the curb. Note: this is a 2-story town home. Call owner a few days before arrival, for front door combination code. She changes it quite often. Bring sweatshirts, and suntan lotion, in case we get a quick shower of rain. It usually clears up very soon, if we do. And this time of year--mosquito spray. Your favorite camera, for those wonderful sunsets looking out over your balcony at the bay! And several swimsuits, caps, and sunglasses. Rock your babies to sleep at night on our white, wooden rocking chairs on the balcony in the cool, night time breezes. What a wonderful way to live!!
