House, 4 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

With approximately 2200 square feet, you'll have plenty of room to spread out. Go swimming in our pool just outside the back door, hit the beach less than a mile away, fish in the canal off the dock, or lounge on the covered patio drinking margaritas! Want to get out of the heat? Enjoy the high-definition digital cable, video games, and wireless internet.

Bring your own boat to go out fishing for the day in the Laguna Madre or the Gulf of Mexico (both accessible from the canal behind the house), or you can charter a deep-sea excursion. Drive over to Corpus Christi Bay to tour the USS Lexington, visit the Texas State Aquarium, or take in the nightlife.

This house is completely furnished when everything you might need or want. It's kid friendly, with baby gates, portable high-chair, sippy cups, and a play yard.

About Crystal Caruthers

We're a retired couple from Oklahoma City, and we honeymooned in 1964 in Corpus Christi. Since then, we've always loved the area, and eventually decided we wanted a vacation home there.

Crystal Caruthers purchased this house in 1996

Why Crystal Caruthers chose Gulf Coast

We built this house in 1996 because we love the area. The people are so friendly, the fishing is great, and the beach is nearby.

Super fantastic

  • 5 of 5

we are an active duty military family that wanted a pleasant stay while we visited family for Christmas .... This place was PERFECT. It had everything we needed to make our visit with family all the more enjoyable. If this place is available next time we go home I will definitely stay again!! The master bathroom has a wonderful whirlpool batthtub which was delightful to relax in after a long day of running around!!! Don't think twice about renting this property, it's definately worth it!

The communication to the buyer was top notch!!! They quickly responded to all questions I had.

Thanks again!!!

We arrived early January for a few days for a wedding of our son, a Navy flyer. 2 adult couples, one grandma, and a college age neice all found the accomodations just fine, with room to spare. Everything needed for an extended stay is in the hosue (which was spotless).

Padre Island is a vacation spot that few of us in the Northwest know about. We will surely return when the weather is a bit warmer.

We were all blown away by the home. 2 adult couples, grandma, and a college age neice all fit with room to spare. In Texas for our son's wedding & had over 20 adults over for a lunch with no seating challenges.

Even had 4 grand children in the unheated pool for a while. Everything needed for an extended stay is included. Nothing missing at all!

We will surely return when the weather is a bit more favorable.

Relaxation on the Water

  • 5 of 5

Being from the UK, we love the wide open spaces and vaulted ceilings of this style of American home, whether in Texas, Florida or Arizona. We were only two, and enjoyed that immensely. Not completely sure how it would work out if every available bed was occupied, but that was not an issue for us. The waterway view and the pool really made it for us. To sit out early with coffee, and then later on with a beer was so relaxing. Would have liked access to the garage as the temperature was unseasonably high for early October. But we had the shade of a tree for our SUV, so again, no harm, no foul.

Overall a wondeful experience.

Wonderful Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had the best time staying in this house. Even though my husband and I live in this area, we booked this house for a family get together. We used the boat dock for our boat which worked out well. Grandkids enjoyed the pool. The house was clean and well furnished with everything we needed. The beds were very comfy. Dealing with the owners concerning payment was a breeze, handled very professionally. Beautiful home!
