About Cathy Bethay

We fell in love with this area while living in San Antonio. Recently work has taken us to Atlanta, but this is still "our beach." Our 3 children love the beach, fishing, and exploring. My husband and I enjoy escaping to the island with our family and creating fun memories with our children.

Cathy Bethay purchased this condo in 2011

Why Cathy Bethay chose Corpus Christi

This condo is located in a very quiet section of the Beach Club and overlooks the saltwater pond. The balcony has warm morning sun and a glimpse of the gulf. Our children have lots of fun at the pond and we can keep our eyes on them from the condo or from the picnic area.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"I think your condo is the best in the complex because of

Privacy, it views open space and the pond, and the birds

joining one for breakfast on the deck."

Great location, well furnished, owner responsive to needs, great pool, close to beach

  • 4 of 5

Had a great time but the weather could have been better! We only got two sunny days while we were there. Still, there were lots of places to explore on Padre Island, in Corpus Christi, and on San Jose Island in Port Aransas.

Well appointed condo and great location on North Padre Island in Corpus...

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for the second year from January through February. The condo is well-appointed and very comfortable, especially the queen sized bed. The location permits great sunbathing on the balcony if walking on the nearby beach or enjoying the heated pool is not in your plans. A well stocked kitchen makes for easy cooking: stockpots for shrimp boils, blender, food chopper, coffee maker, and all the utensils. The outdoors sports closet on the balcony is stocked with everything from fishing gear to beach chairs and ocean toys to a crab trap. A covered outdoor grill (charcoal) area is down the flight of stairs. HEB Supercenter and Paul's Seafood is fifteen minutes across the causeway in Flour Bluff and JB's German Bakery is down the street. Take a walk on Whitecap Beach, a short 200 yard walk down the street, drive to nearby Padre Island National Seashore, go windsurfing on Laguna Madre or stretch out on the couch and listen to the waves and feel the breeze from the Gulf: life is good on Padre Island. Cathy is great to work with and always promptly returns messages. If you want to relax and have fun, stay won't be disappointed. We absolutely love Sail la Vie. You will, too!

Condo was great!

  • 5 of 5

Condo was great - really nice complex! Pretty decor and good location to the beach. We had 5 in our party, which was a little tight space wise, but we made it work. Cathy, the owner, was super nice and great to work with. Recommend Sail la Vie and Cathy's Condo to everyone.

Owner's Response: Patsy, thank you so much for your kind review. Great feedback. Yes, space is a bit tight for 5 people, especially 5 adults. I always reach out to my potential guests when they state their party size is 5 adults. I want them to be aware that the space can be tight and that the bathroom is only accessible through the bedroom. Families of 5 with children find it not as challenging. :) Our family of 5 finds that our condo provides much more space than a single hotel room would. I want to give people the option for 5 guests so that they can keep families together in one place and minimize their travel expense.

Clean, great for two people

  • 5 of 5

I enjoyed my stay. Condo was clean and very quiet. It is small, so great for two people. We stayed in October. Not sure how quiet the place is during summer, but I was impressed. Nice balcony to drink a morning cup of coffee.

Cozy and beautiful place to relax in and enjoy

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay. When we walked in, the place was very clean, fresh and bright. It is well and tastefully decorated in beach theme, which we loved. It is walking distance to the beach and overlooks a pond. Cathy is very nice and communicative, she called me when I did my booking and communicated some information on the property as well as the surrounding area. During our stay I messaged her about balcony door and she called me immediately.

She was also very prompt in refunding the deposit.

Will definitely return here again on our next visit.
