  • Huge house, great beach and views!

    "Karol the leasing agent is wonderful! Super nice and very accommodating. We live in Houston and often make last minute trips down to this house and neighborhood many times during peak season. The Neighborhood is quite and safe (police patrol enough that we have come to know some of the officers we visit so much), beach is clean and we rent here several times a year. This is a large house with 3 bed rooms up stairs and one bath up stairs, the two huge bedrooms and one bath down stairs. It's nice to not have to claim stairs every time you run back from the beach to go to the bathroom. One of the down stairs bedrooms is so big, it slept my brother, his wife and four kids and tons of luggage with plenty of room! Karol also leases another home in the same Neighborhood (that is smaller and cheaper) stated that how many times to you to!! This house has 3 bedrooms and one bath. The porch faces then gulf and his huge. They also have a baby lock gate to the tall stairs leading up/down to the house, which is great when you have smaller children like us!! the down stairs has a picnic table, lots of chairs, swing and BBQ pit to roast marsh mellows or cook burgers. We have blown lots of bubbles, had water ballon fights and great drinks after the kids go to bed down! We have a 3yr and celebrated her last two birthdays Acapulco Village and several other family members as well birthdays as well. The pantry is full of condiments, plates, paper towels, etc that each guest leaves behind so if you forget something it might be in the pantry. There is a small grocery store 1min. away that we shop at multiple times during Stay. They have ice, food, water, beer and the essentials needed for a beach weekend get away or long vacation. They even have beach wear, sunblock, clothing, water shoes and beach toys (now they are kind of pricey on these items so I suggest going 15 minutes into town to Walmart if you need lots of these things and food). If your looking for a great time, nice beach, affordable, nice leasing agents and nice BIG house, look no further!!! Can't wait to get back down there in March 2015."

  • Loved every minute! Perfect family getaway in the perfect location!

    "We loved everything about the condo, the location, and amenities. We have stayed at MANY locations in Rockport and this is by far our favorite. The condo is clean, comfortable, modern, and has everything you need. The owners were easy to work with and responsive. Our favorite thing about the condo is not having to pack things up with the kids in tow to fish. They can just walk right out the back door and wet a hook. It makes it so relaxing for busy full-time working parents who still want to entertain their kids but get to relax too. We loved the cranes that came for a visit, the dolphins swimming by were icing on the cake. The pool was close, clean, and enjoyable. We love everything about Rockport from the fishing, to the shopping, the beach, the many places to eat, museums, and we even checked out the movie theater this time due to the rain. We will definitely be back!"

  • Great house

    "Beautiful views from the front and back. Great dock for our boat. My son loved riding our Jetski on the ICW. The house had everything you need. It was like staying at a friends house. Very comfortable, very relaxing. Downstairs is separated so it was just the right amount of privacy. Everyone can be together or have some space. The only things that weren't great were nature related-seaweed on the beach and mosquitos. We still had a wonderful time. We are looking forward to renting again."

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.
