Property description

Perfect waterfront location for your Padre Island family vacation, romantic getaway, or fishing trip (or any combination). Located directly on the Laguna Madre, you have the dock on the bay just steps from the door and sunset view to die for.
Two bedroom, two bath waterfront Condo on north Padre Island. Not a high rise, our condo is the corner top floor (2nd floor) of a two-story building with one adjacent neighbor. You view the Laguna Madre, Kennedy Causeway and the Packery Channel from the living room, master bedroom and two decks. Outdoorsman's Dream - Coastal Vacation - Convenient to town, all in one.

Keep your boat in the water at one of the docks out back (within 20 feet of the back door) or just enjoy the coastal environment. You and the kids can fish along the bulkhead under the lights at night. Take a kayak adventure on the Packery Channel and the surrounding coastal flats area where fishing and birding can be very productive.

Surfing, windsurfing the SE tradewind, bird watching, migratory waterfowl hunting, and water skiing are also regular outdoor opportunities in the Laguna. There is a pool shared by the residents of Puente Vista for an afternoon freshwater swim. 3 mile drive to the Gulf of Mexico Beach at Padre Balli Park, the Packery Channel Jetties or to the Bob Hall Pier in 5 minutes. Padre Isles Country Club and Golf club is within 2 miles. There are restaurants and night clubs within 3 miles. Schlitterbahn was scheduled to open late summer 2015, but to date only the restaurant is open. I've heard its good.

The meeting/gathering room can also be made available to guests for a variety of functions with proper notice, a deposit and $50 fee. Use the pool and surrounding area anytime!

Grill your catch, steaks or burgers by the waters edge. Our dining room table easily seats seven. The kitchen has a full sized refrigerator with freezer and an oven/stove, and microwave. There is a dishwasher and all the cooking/eating utensils.

Relax in one of the four recliner chairs (2 sofa/2 loveseat) in the living room and watch the 46' HDTV or read a book. Enjoy the sunset from the kitchen table, recliners, or decks. Walk out onto the deck for evening views of the Laguna Madre, JFK Causeway and sunsets.

There is a King-size bed and full bath with a 5' shower (replaced in '12) and flat screen TV in the master bedroom. The master sliding glass door looks out to the bay (Laguna Madre).
A Queen-size bed plus a double bottom and single top bunk bed in the front bedroom with full bath and tub and deck. Bed linens and bath towels are included. Bedrooms and living room each have a walkout deck area with sliding glass door access.

There are well maintained coin Washers and Dryers (albeit hot in the summer time) in the central recreation/pool/party area. So You can swim while doing the laundry.
There is a parking area to store your boat trailer or extra vehicle on site. Fish cleaning station with freshwater washdown at the waters edge.

The Packery Channel provides an open waterway pass for boat access to the Gulf of Mexico (appx 3 miles from the condo – 10 minute boat ride) between the Packery jetties. The jetties can be a productive fishing spot to target Tarpon, Snook, King and Spanish Mackerel and the ever-popular Redfish...plus the beach is right there for strolling with the family when you aren't fishing.

Drive to the Gulf of Mexico Beach in 5-minutes or to the Corpus Christi marina in 20-minutes (very convenient location). Port Aransas is a 30-minute drive north on the island via 361. The National Seashore Park is a 20-minute drive south via P22 on Padre Island. Drive to the Packery Channel park in 5 minutes!

Sorry NO pets allowed.

Our condo is located on the north end of Padre Island directly fronting the Upper Laguna Madre. It is super convenient to all of the local attractions including Schlitterbahn Water Park and venues. Tie your boat right out the back at the dock in a no-wake zone. Launch your kayaks out back for fishing the channels and flats. This is the best and quickest access point to the Laguna Madre. Bird watching and Duck hunting in the winter months is excellent. It's 2.7 miles to the beach (Gulf of Mexico). 3 miles to the Packery Jetties (which extend out into the gulf and provide an excellent fishing platform). There are a number of parks and put ins for kayaks nearby in such as Fish Pass, Packery park, Wilsons cut, PINS. The Padre Isalnd National Seashore (PINS) is 16 miles and has remote beaches and dunes to explore.

There are a number of restaurants and bars within a mile of the condo. Snoopys Pier - Serves fresh grilled and fried seafood on paper plates with a unique atmosphere and is 2 miles by car or less than 1 mile via boat or kayak. Padre Island Burger Co - Good burgers! decent drink specials and is 1.4 miles. Scuttlebutt has happy hour around 6pm and many 1/2 price specials... shrimp, sushi, drinks.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: We are a family of 4 that love outdoor activities including the beach, fishing, hiking and hunting. Dad fishes and hunts. Spends time hikeing the beach with Mom who enjoys kayaking the channels and flats while watching birds, dolphins and other wildlife. We all spend time on the beaches around the Packery Jetty and PINS. Also we ride bikes down Ocean Drive and over in Port Aransas. Our son hunts duck and does a little fishing and the beaches with friends. Our daughter (college) loves the beach, kayaking, fishing and swimming, and enjoys hanging out at the Packery Jetty.

Why the Owner Chose Corpus Christi:
The Laguna Madre area provides all sorts of outdoor activities. Everywhere you look there are people having fun fishing, swimming or surfing at the beach, walking, boating, kayaking, windsurfing, and hunting through out all months of the year. There is direct access to the blue water of the Gulf of Mexico via the Packery Channel and jetties. Easy auto/bike access to the Gulf of Mexico beaches including the Padre Island National Seashore (PINS). Quick access to downtown Corpus Christi and a manageable drive (20 minutes) to Port Aransas. Unobstructed views of the JFK Causeway and Laguna Madre sunset. Above all else...Immediate access out the condo door to the boat dock to keep boat/kayaks in the water or fish off the docks while you're visiting.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Unobstructed views of the JFK Causeway and Laguna Madre sunset. Out the door access to the boat at the dock (25'). Kayak from the dock to good fishing and birding water in the Laguna Madre flats. King sized bed, queen bed and double bunk-beds with 2 full baths make this a no-brainer..HDTV with recorder (football) and wifi internet access put it over the top! Then theres full sized refrig, etc etc
