  • Exactly as advertised, exceptional service - Highly recommend!!!

    "The house is perfect! It was exceptionally clean, beautifully decorated and well stocked with everything we needed for a beach vacation. The beds were cozy with nice sheets and the towels were nice and thick! The little personal size toiletries were a nice touch. While it was nice to have the Beach Club amenities, we just enjoyed being together at the house. We cooked, played games like Uno, Wii, and puzzles, and watched DVDs (all provided). We also watched Netflix movies on the TV cuddled up by the fireplace. It was perfect on the cool nights! With our check-in instructions, we got an emergency/off-hours phone number to call if we had problems. One night, the internet went out around 9:30pm during a Netflix movie. We called the number; Neerja answered right away and was very helpful. We were back to watching the move in 20 minutes! The house is located right next the dune crossover. It was easy for us to go back and forth plus we could easily watch the grandkids from the balcony. We loved that driving on the beach is not allowed. The beach was gorgeous – it was deep with NO seaweed in sight! The sunrises are just spectacular!!! They are definitely worth getting up for. If you prefer sunsets, just sit out on the front porch and watch the beautiful colors. The grill was new and the 3 picnic benches were great to spread out on. The bathroom was so convenient – we didn't need to go up and down! The house also has a chiminea for staying warm outside - the grandkids made smores! There is a storage area with chairs, beach toys and boogie board – the kids loved it! Unfortunately the water was a bit cold to enjoy for long periods. I can’t recommend this place and company enough! If you want to have a great time, definitely consider this house. We will definitely be coming back again."

  • Excellent stay in Port A

    "We enjoyed our stay at the Courtyard very much!! The place was clean and well kept with everything you should need at your fingertips. Both the murphy and king size beds were extremely comfortable and the kitchen was well stocked for any cooking you may want to do. The pool was lovely for night swims and the location of the condo was nice and easy to get to. We will definitely be back!"

  • Loved the Condo

    "I really enjoyed my stay at this condo. This was the first time my family had rented a condo. The rooms were very comfortable and I loved having access to the washer and dryer. The condo was very private and I felt we were at our home with our own personal pool, since there was no other tenants. Definitely recommend this condo to anyone wanting a private, clean, very well stocked condo. I will definitely be back to this condo next year."

  • Galveston in March

    "From reservation to check out Paul was wonderful to deal with. Always available for any questions we had. The condo has a great floor plan, comfortable furniture and perfect location. The downstairs lobby was impressive. The desk clerks were always helpful and pleasant. Parking is plentiful and secure. We will definitely rent this same condo again in the future."

Corpus Christi Travel Tips

The coastal city of Corpus Christi, Texas, offers visitors proximity to the Gulf of Mexico. This getaway offers visitors a mix of modern and historic attractions that highlight its journey from the past through the present.

Corpus Christi Attractions

The Texas State Aquarium has several exhibits, programs and camps for visitors who want to learn more about and explore marine life. Some of the aquarium's exhibits include Dolphin Bay, Eagle Pass, Floating Phantoms, Islands of Steel, Living Shores, Otter Creek, Shark Touch, Stingray Lagoon and Swamp Tales. Also at the attraction is the HEB Splash Park and Owen's Paleo Park. The splash park is a zero-depth wetscape water play area found in the aquarium's Coastal Bend. Vacationers can play in marine-themed park features such as water spray jets, interactive water toys, water cannons and much more. Owen's Paleo Park is a fossil dig site where guests can discover fossilized remains of animals including the giant ground sloth and saber-toothed cat. Programs at the aquarium include Reptile Research, Fish Quest, Discovering Dolphins, Daily Diets, Explore Your Shore! and Behind-the-Scenes.

The USS Lexington is a ship and museum that allows visitors to get an up-close experience aboard a vessel used during World War II. The aircraft carrier was the last remaining ship still in service from the period. It was moved to Corpus Christi in 1992 and opened to the public in October of that year. Attractions on the ship include the Joe Jessel 3-D MEGA Theater, virtual battle stations, a flight simulator and a cafe. The virtual battle station is perfect for visitors of all ages and allows you to get a view of what it was like for deployed soldiers during World War II. Guests can be a pilot in Dog Fight, fire at enemy aircraft in Combat and land a plane in Carrier Landing.

For serenity, head to Padre Island, the longest stretch of undeveloped barrier island terrain in the world. The Padre Island National Seashore separates Laguna Madre from the Gulf of Mexico and features 70 miles of protected coastline, dunes, prairies and wind tidal flats. At the seashore you may catch a glimpse of the Kemp's ridley sea turtle or one of 380 bird species who live there. There's a history of Spanish shipwrecks dating as far back as 1554 at the site that guests can learn about, and the national seashore also has military history when the northern section of the island served as a Navy bombing range from World War II to 1960.

Thanks to Corpus Christi's warm climate, any season is a great time to visit. Those in search of a great recreation area on the water should head to Mustang Island State Park where you can indulge in swimming, hiking and mountain biking on 5 miles of open beach. When you visit the park be sure to try surfing and kayaking. Those who visit during the spring and fall should check out the park for bird watching during these respective migration periods. Also near Mustang Island State Park is Lake Corpus Christi State Park and Copano Bay Fishing Pier.
