I (owner) live just two blocks away, and I love to fish. Since I have two boats, and fish often, it is ok to ask share a fishing trip with me. My trips normally last from about 2-hours to all day and can be set up to fit your schedule. Both Boats are 22 ft long, center console bay fishing boats. For shorter trips I can take 3-4 passengers. For the longer or all day trips, no more than 3 people. I also have the fishing equipment and safety gear to share. Splitting the cost will save you hundreds. so if you are interested in fishing, but, do not want to pay a guide $400-$900 for a 4-6 hour trip, this could be a great option for you. If you are interested, please ask for information sheet.

We offer Weekly or Monthly or longer rates. We do not offer daily rentals, unless we have 3 or more days sandwiched between reservations.

This is a great place for; Families, Couples, Retired Folks, Winter Texans, Fisherman, Traveling Nurses, or Work Crews.

The modern and updated townhome that is totally/fully furnished and very spacious 3-bedroom, 3-full baths. When we say totally furnished, you will see why most people say we have more useful furnishing than any rental they have ever stayed at. You need nothing but your clothes and personal items.

Some of the features that stand out are:

• Boat lift and sling available,

• Fishing from deck,

• Fish cleaner with running water right on the lower patio

• Two patio areas, with tables and seating in both

• Spaces for three cars to park in driveway

The Island was spectacular last year 2016 and even more so this this year 2017 as of this update - Memorial Day, 2017. Our Clean beaches, clean and clear water conditions, they look like someone raked and cleaned the beaches to perfection. People are catching fish right in the surf, and weather has been very good - maybe not perfect on windy days, but, great weather is predicted again this summer. I have been here for years, and never seen back-to-back seasons like this before. SO, PLAN EARLY – we will fill up fast, don’t miss out.

Our Check-in/out is the most simple, quick method you have ever used. We have installed new electronic push button locks on the entry doors. We will send you a 4-digit code via email, and that will be your key. No check-in-out, and no front desk, no paperwork, just arrive whenever you want, and leave whenever you want (not later than scheduled checkout time)

If you are considering extended stays, or maybe a winter Texas, or a worker(s) who need flexible or custom rental, just let me know and I can work with you on a custom rate that will be less than the posted rates using this quote tool.

If you are planning on Spring Break, book early, because the island will fill up and this is a very comfortable place for a group to stay and it is close to the beach and the spring break festivities.

There is great fishing right from the patio and many a large lunker speckled trout and red fish have been taken from right there. The canals in the area have numerous underwater lights. These lights are referred to as "GREEN LIGHTS" because at night, the put off a brilliant glow of green and small bait fish are attracted to the lights - thus, fishing in the lighted areas is great for catching the larger sport fish which are also feeding on the smaller bait fish in the green glow water.

About Jack Holmbeck

Semi Retired Ex-banker and entrepreneur with a diversified background. Loved the area so much, he decided to move there and be close to the water and fishing year round. After living in the home myself until 2013 full time, now, i just spend about 6 months a year and spend the rest of the year traveling or most often in Austin to be near my son and his wife - while waiting on our first grandchild.

Jack Holmbeck purchased this townhome in 2001

Why Jack Holmbeck chose Corpus Christi

We wanted to be on the water, have a boat, and nice place for beach access and a place that was convenient for island living, and laid back life.

What makes this townhome unique

Many people say that they love the place for the comfort, deck with beautiful views, and a tremendous appreciation for the underwater green fishing lights. These attract fish, and the fishing is great at night. The warm gentle breezes in the summer and setting on the East Side shade patio while having a drink is also special.

But, the most UNIQUE BENEFIT about this property, is that the owner is a fisherman with a couple of nice boats, and does not mind taking guests along with weather permitting, and some coordination to make it happen. Below is a general description of how it could be possible to share a fishing trip at huge savings.

I live just two blocks away, and I love to fish. Since I have two boats, and fish often, it is ok to ask to share a fishing trip with me. My trips normally last 2-hours to all day. Both Boats are 22 ft long, center console bay fishing boats. For shorter trips I can take 3-4 passengers. For the longer or all day trips, no more than 3 people. I also have the fishing equipment and safety gear to share.

I DO NOT CHARGE for this at all. What I do expect, is for the guest to share some of the cost of the fishing trip, but, paying for the bait, their food, drinks, and a portion of the fuel expense. These are not charges, it is simply sharing of the trip expenses only, just as you would do if you split cost of a fishing trip with a friend or family member. Also note, I am NOT a licensed captain (yet) and there are a lot better fishermen and pro guides available. I have been boating and owned my own boats for 43 years, so, i do know how to handle the water, and responsibilities of taking people with you in any type of boat ride. If you are interested, please ask for information sheet, that has a lot more information on how to make this happen. If you prefer to use a fishing guide, i would recommend that actually, it is only the cost that they charge that is the problem. So, if you want fun, & save$ just let me know.

The condo was absolutely beautiful and had everything supplied that we could possibly need. The Padre Island area was beautiful and we had a wonderful winter break from the cold Ohio weather. Jack was a great host and made sure we had all our needs met. He lived close by and when we had a couple of small issues arise, he came right over and took care of the problems. I would recommend this condo to anyone looking for a great vacation. The fishing was great and we returned to Ohio with several pounds of red snapper.

Owner's Response: What a great couple! My guest were winter Texans, and i got the opportunity to meet and get to know them pretty well. By midway through their 3-month stay, i did not consider them guests any longer - but, did consider them my Friends. If anyone gets a chance to rent to these folks, i do encourage you to do so. They are just super people, fair, communicate well, and honest folks. Jack

Condo is great but the owner is amazing!

  • 5 of 5

The condo had everything you would need for a great stay. We had 4 adults and 2 boys ages 9 and 7. There was plenty of room for all of us. The deck over the water was a great place for our 9 year old to drop his pole whenever he wanted. The owner, Jack, checked in with us several times during our stay to see if we needed anything. The washer needed a repair and he had it done right away. Jack took our family out to fish two different times and the boys had an exciting time catching enough for us to have 2 large meals. Jack made sure the boys had a great time and the adults too! The boys have asked when can we go back to Jack's --so I know we will rent again. I feel like we have made a friend for life.

So conveniently located on the middle of canals section of the small island. The island only has two traffic lights, and quaint small town fishing village mixed with tropical modern living. Many people come for the beaches; but, stay for the best living in Texas.


Rates & Availability

Taxes and fees are additional

Additional information about rental rates

Property Damage Protection $59
Pet Fee $100 + Tax
Cleaning fee $95 + Tax

If you have a pet please let me know before we book.
Small pets under 15 LBS = $100 pet fee
Most Large pets over 15 LBS = $150 pet fee
Labrador - Collie - St. Bernard, and most traditional heavy shedding dogs - may be up to $200 pet fee.

Contact owner and discuss. Depending on pet, age, kennel, conditions, season, can vary the pet fee. Just please discuss. This cost is needed to apply the appropriate cleaning methods and tasks needed to prepare unit for future visitors, or myself when I stay there - which is about half the year. So, just discuss with owner and come to a reasonable agreement. BUT, please be reasonable and honest in your assessment of your pet. We would rather not accept any pets, but, as a pet owner myself, we would not rent from anyone unless our pet could be included. So, you will be dealing with an understanding open minded owner.

Monthly rentals (Monthly or long term only) do not include the charges for electricity or water utilities for the month. This is negotiable and will run about $200-$350, depending on your use, please ask owner. Only those two utilities are considered. As a long term renter, you will have the choice of a monthly amount - depending on the season, or simply agree to pay exact pass through amounts.

High Speed internet, and Direct TV are included and paid for by owner. This is the full package Direct TV, with expanded channels, including sports, movies, and the better level of channels. NO Pay Per View events are included.

"Short weeks" of four (4) days are available. However, if you choose a weekend day in a short week, there is $30 per day increase on the weekend days. That increase in included in the total shown by the quote tool.

We want you to have a nice and enjoyable vacation. But, being out on the deck at night, and fishing and maybe some adult beverages can lead to excitement, and that can lead to loud communications and yelling. Please respect the neighbors please.

  • 50% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.
  • 100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
