Private Balcony- Great View- Free Internet
About Monty Martin
I am Monty Martin and I currently live in Central Texas. I was raised on the coast and wanted to have a great place to come back to. I purchased this condo from a gentleman who owned it since 2007. He rented it out and had many 5 star reviews.
Monty Martin purchased this Condo in 2015
Why Monty Martin chose Central City
I purchased this condo to be on the beach along with all the things to do in the Corpus Christi area. I selected this condo due to it being right on North Beach and mostly because of the EXCELLENT views from the balcony.
What makes this Condo unique
This condo is very cozy and located on the beach. The views are amazing especially at night. From your Balcony, you can enjoy a beverage while looking at "The Blue Ghost" USS Lexington. The Harbor Bridge puts on a wonderful light show at night and you can also see downtown Corpus Christi light up. On home games, the Hooks Minor League Baseball Team puts on a dazzling firework show right over the Harbor Bridge.

First Time Here
It was the perfect spot for my family and I. We loved every minute of it
Anniversary get away
We loved our little condo it was perfect.... perfect for 2!! Would most definitely come back... very clean and great places to eat and explore nearby! Would recommend highly!
Great for a short beach trip!
Our family of 5 rented this condo for 4 days, 3 nights. It was a spontaneous trip on a budget, and this fit the bill. Our kids are 9 and 6 (twins). Our son slept on the fold out bed and the twins loved the bunk beds. Great set up! This place is small and cute, perfect for a home-base as you spend most of your time at the beach. A little too small to spend a whole lot of time hanging out inside but who wants to be inside when the beach is right outside your door?? Not us! :) We loved the balcony view and the use of boogie boards and beach toys. The beach was a short walk away, very convenient! Fun view of the Harbor Bridge and USS Lexington right outside! Lots to do very close by. We had a lot of fun!
As for the property, check in was easy. The owner, Monty, was very communicative and responsive. He sent me everything we needed to know beforehand and it was an easy process. The place was clean when we arrived. The kitchen is tiny, with a cute little stove and fridge. No dishwasher, so I'd advise bringing along paper plates just to make your vacation a little easier. Also be aware that the freezer is tiny, so if you bring groceries, not a whole lot will fit. Plenty of room in the fridge for the basics for a few days though. There's pots, pans, utensils, tons of mugs and glasses, but only 2 plastic cups. If you have little kids, consider bringing a few cups. Or just disposable plastic cups to avoid washing extra dishes. :) Overall, everything you'd need is here, even a blender, coffee maker and toaster. Plenty of towels, but only 2 rolls of toilet paper. Understand that...if the owner left a ton of TP there, people might just take it home with them. But if you have kids, maybe bring along some extra.
Considering the amount of people and cars there, we were surprised at how quiet it was at night. Grateful! No problem finding parking.
A quick note...I am disabled and can't walk far. Getting to the elevator, then to the room, was no problem at all. Luckily this unit is located fairly close to the elevator, which I was very thankful for. Even the walk down to the beach was very doable. The beach has a gate access; the whole complex was gated. It's definitely older, definitely not fancy, but a fun and affordable place to spend a few days at the coast. We had a great time and would recommend this place, especially if you're on a tight budget like we are! Thanks Monty for helping us give our kids some great summer memories at the beach!
Expected more from the condos
Quality of the condo did not compare to other properties listed on VRBO. It needs to be updated/renovated. Bedroom had a very musky smell, the floor sloped, ceiling was separating from the walls and there was a nasty exposed nail on the balcony. The sliding door is very old and was difficult to shut. Even though, I have listed a lot we liked the area and we will go back.
We enjoyed our stay at Villa Del Sol
The condo was great and loved the beach access.
