Casa del Mar condo description

Beachfront Oasis - This ocean front one bedroom condo suite is the perfect get away for having some fun with your family or slipping away with that special someone. Relax on your private balcony and enjoy the sights and sounds of the surf, swim in one of the two tropically landscaped pools (one of which is heated), grill something tasty and have a picnic at the barbecue pavilion, or head across the street to the sandy beach and play in the waves.

The condo is across the street from the beach and close to everything: Pleasure Pier, Moody Gardens, Schlitterbahn, shopping, surfing, fishing, you name it.

We provide:
• Fully equipped studio kitchen
• Private bedroom with queen-size bed and flat screen TV
• Queen-size sleeper sofa in the living room
• Bunk beds for the little ones
• Towels, sheets, pillows, and blankets for all
• FREE WiFi, Satellite TV, and parking for 2 vehicles
• NO CLEANING FEE for stays of 2+ nights

Sorry, no renters under 21 years of age

Note: Casa del Mar is undergoing balcony renovations during Spring 2014. When our unit is being updated the balcony will NOT be accessible to the renter. We will notify you f your stay will be impacted by the renovations BEFORE you book.

We love animals; however, Casa Del Mar management does not allow pets at the complex. Early check-in and/or late check-out are available at no additional cost based on booking calendar. For a small fee we offer unique touches to impress your guests on special occasions: birthday decorations with a birthday cake, anniversary dinner with flowers ready and waiting, congratulations decorations with pictures of the bride and groom, just to name a few.
