Car: Recommended

This condo is one of the closest to the beach in the entire Beachclub Condo complex. There is a Resort Hotel a few blocks to the North which has live music outside on the beach seawall. Visit the beach stores in town 1/2 mile away or beachcomb for up to 75 miles on the Seashore National Park. Famous Schlitterbaun Waterpark is just 1 and 1/2 mile away.

If you want shade from noon on till sunset on the balcony and the shortest walk to the sand and beach, this condo is genuinely one of the most beautiful you will find.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: I found this sweet condo almost 5 years ago. It was screaming for a chance to have guests come and visit it's lovely ambience. I couldn't resist the opportunity to make it accessible for being a rental in a great complex. The winters are absolutely beautiful from this condo location, but the summers steal the show. The access to the hot tub, pool and beach from this condo location is perfect. I will continue to personally manage and tend to every detail to your stay because you deserve the best on your vacation.

Why the Owner Chose Corpus Christi, TX, USA:
I personally watched this resort being built back in 1989. It looks like a Cape Cod style home along the North East Coast.. I have loved coming to this beautiful beach over several decades. One can still drive on this unique beach which visitors love to do as they can spread out their towels, umbrellas and have a bonfire to have a great time with the family . Now there is a car free designated area for children on the beach as well. Walk the seawall (1 Mile) and enjoy the restaurants on the Island. See the whitecaps and feel the constant breeze.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
I fell in Love with Condo #231 as soon as I walked in and I believe you will too. While standing in the kitchen you can see the water and feel the breeze blowing through the windows. People at the BeachClub are friendly, and they love their exclusive amenities.
