About Bev Firmani

We are professional people who located to Corpus Christi because of the excellent beaches close to the community. There's always something fun to do: festivals, jazz & symphony concerts, live music, dancing, swimming, surfing, fishing, etc. Wonderful restaurants! We have retired from the medical field, and take pride in our 'White Glove Treatment' of the Beach House, in between guests. We wouldn't rent out a house which we couldn't feel comfortable sleeping in ourselves! Most of our guests feel that the customer service is excellent--but, if not--we are only a phone call away! Text or call us until 10 p.m. Thank you!

Why Bev Firmani chose Corpus Christi

North Padre Island is a little-known Paradise, across the JFK bridge, ten minutes from Corpus Christi! The Beach House is about ten minutes from the grocery store, loaded with fresh seafood. Or try Paul's Seafood in Four Bluff, just over the bridge and open daily. Movie theater ten minutes away; close to great restaurants. And there is NO WAIT at the restaurants! But, don't wait until 8 p.m. to go. either. :) Port Aransas is an additional twenty minutes of driving, but filled with many other restaurants. Our new water park, Schlitterbahn, may be completed this summer. Because of the new water park coming in soon, we have experienced a building boom lately, including many new restaurants within a mile of driving. Wear your shorts and t-shirts to most of these restaurant, or swim suits and cover ups to Mikel May's on Bob Hall Pier (new and outside).

What makes this Townhome unique

1) One block from Windward Beach, which is free, and offers a great area for walking & surfing. 2) Great restaurants, offering wonderful seafood, CA cuisine, Italian, Mexican,gourmet burgers, along with imported beers-- and whatever else you crave, with just a 5-10 minute drive. 3) Easy to get here from Corpus Christi Airport, or San Antonio, which is about 2 1/2 miles away by car. Straight freeway driving from I-37 S. onto North Padre Island Drive (SPID) to the 'Island'. (Map attached). We're right off the Whitecap exit to the left, onto Leeward Drive, #803. Yellow & white buildings, with plenty of parking for boats & cars along the curb. Note: this is a 2-story town home. Call owner a few days before arrival, for front door combination code. She changes it quite often. Bring sweatshirts, and suntan lotion, in case we get a quick shower of rain. It usually clears up very soon, if we do. And this time of year--mosquito spray. Your favorite camera, for those wonderful sunsets looking out over your balcony at the bay! And several swimsuits, caps, and sunglasses. Rock your babies to sleep at night on our white, wooden rocking chairs on the balcony in the cool, night time breezes. What a wonderful way to live!!

                                                                • Great place for families, and professional people, who just like an up-scale, 'home away from home'. This beach home is immaculate, beautiful, well-maintained, and filled with professors and Navy pilots. (Single ladies, take note!) Check out our swimming pool,and the dance spots, close by in Port Aransas, or The Island bars & restaurants, a few minutes away!) 'Scuttlebutts' is a great place to meet people!

                                                                  The condo had a comfortable, clean beach feeling. It was very spacious and well thought out. My grandkids loved having beach toys and boogie boards available. The townhome was close to the beach which kept the sand out of the car! Having the front hose to clean off was a nice touch. The new carpet was soft and looked so nice. The upper deck had a lovely breeze as well as view to one end of water. We would certainly book again. Bev was great about getting what we needed and checked in regularly. She was a great hostess. All in all our family loved it. My brother inlaw, who chose to stay at a hotel in CC told my sister that next time, he wants to rent a condo or townhome.

                                                                  Martin D.

                                                                  Our family of 11 enjoyed our week long stay tremendously. We were able to enjoy cooking, eating and entertaining together without needing to purchase extra things. The kitchen is stocked with pretty much everything you'd have at home...tea pitchers, mixing bowls, sharp knives, coffee makers. The kids enjoyed the toys and extras she provided for them too. Available for your beach fun are chairs, a pop up shade, beach umbrella, small ice chest and beach toys, if you need them. They have put a lot of thought into your needs, in order to make your stay enjoyable without the need to purchase extras. They even have blow dryers in the restrooms, an iron and ironing boards. Very, very accommodating.

                                                                  Not much of a beach view, a liile bay view, to my disappointment. Parking is snug too, only one spot per unit.

                                                                  Overall the beaches are beautiful, the home is well keep and clean. Again Ms. Bev is very accommodating and courteous. If the Lord allows well call them again for future visits to the beach.

                                                                  Excellent location and delightful owner!!

Plenty of room! And Bev was a delight!! She was very informative with places to visit, easy to get a hold of, and so friendly and lovely!! We will definitely stay again.
