  • Little bit of paradise

    "From the beginning to the end all was excellent. The location was within walking distance to almost everything. The interior was lovely, clean, and decorated beautifully. The beds were very comfortable and the neighborhood was quiet. I go to Port A at least 1 to 2 times a year. We love the area and Island time is so relaxing. This will be my new home away from home. Thanks Melanie for having such a great place to stay. See you soon. Yes, I would recommend this property! Lynda"

  • Family Fun Time!!

    "This condo was AWESOME! And the views were AMAZING! For the price of a hotel room, we stayed in this cute 2 bedroom condo. The deck is huge as it spans the entire 24 feet of the condo. My daughter would've slept out there if we had let her. My dog ran laps. Its big.. It was just the three of us and the dog, but there was plenty of room for several others and it not feel crowded. The extra half bath is a life saver! The kitchen is full size, not one of those hotel mini-things. I gladly cooked breakfast both days and dinner on the patio is worth the rental cost alone! The beach is literally 2 minutes away. And I mean a real beach, not a spit of sand in front of the seawall. There's nothing like a morning run with the pooch watching the sun rise with the fishermen, and a few revelers still at it from the night before... We also visited Schlitterbahn, which is also just a 5 minute drive from the condo. This place has it all and we will be back!"

  • Wedding Central

    "We used to live in Corpus Christi and came back for our daughter's wedding. We wanted to be in town. Couldn't believe we were so blessed to find the Dolphin House! Part of the family stayed here...but it was also the meeting place for pre-activities. It was so wonderfully cozy and homey. So nice to come back to at the end of the day, relax and get a great night's sleep! Beautifully decorated...the bride and her girls got dressed here. So hoping we can make a return trip to CC and stay at the Dolphin House!"

Texas Travel Tips

Activities at Texas Beach Rentals

Texas's southeastern border runs along the Gulf of Mexico. It is one of the less populated areas of the state and a great vacation option. You can enjoy beautiful views that stretch out over the Gulf from Galveston beach house rentals or South Padre beach vacation rentals. There are many activities in the area including deep sea fishing, beachcombing and sailing. If you plan to visit the coastal regions, it is best to do so in the spring and early summer months when the weather is milder. It can be fun exploring the smaller coastal towns, and browsing antique shops and general stores for souvenirs.
