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 Gulf Coast

We love the proximity of this condo to the beach. It is close to amenities, yet quiet.

The condo was beautiful and the amenities available was beyond our expectations.

  • 5 of 5

The condo was beautiful and had everything we could possibly need for our stay. We did have a slight disturbance with the community pool and the happenings occuring on the property.

The property was great!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the complex and the amenities. The condo was cute and had everything we needed. The A/C, dishwasher, washer/dryer all worked well. The queen size bed was very comfortable. The lighting was good in the bathroom and the shower had great pressure. Cathy was a great owner who was very available and truly concerned with our enjoyment of her property. We will go again in the future.

Beach vacation

  • 4 of 5

Our family really enjoyed our stay! The condo was very cute! It had everything we needed, plus more. There were even beach chairs and an umbrella provided. It was very clean and the bed was very comfortable. Our son slept on the pull out couch with a foam mattress. He is 6'4" and he was comfortable. The beach was only a block away. I would recommend visiting the Germany bakery. It was delicious! The pool & hot tub were very nice. The Beach Club was very family friendly. We will be back!

Owner's Response: I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay and that your knee allowed you to come to the beach! ;) I think the sleeper sofa is comfortable too. We had a short notice move and I slept on one myself for a few months. We would love to host you and your family again at Toes in the Water.

Summer Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family of 4 had a wonderful stay at Toes in the Water for our Summer Vacation trip. The condo had a very homely feel to it and was supplied with everything we needed. There was even coffee which we forgot to pick up on our trip to the store. The pool was great and the distance to the Beach is not far at all. I highly recommend this place for anyone wishing to stay in North Padre Island.

College Tour

  • 5 of 5

I loved the condo, it was very homely and had everything we needed. We came for a college tour for our daughter and this condo suited our needs perfectly and accommodated the 3 of us well, with room to spare. My only complaint was the amount of light that came through in the bedroom, it made sleeping a little difficult, besides that I would stay here again and recommend it to friends.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review! I appreciate your feedback on the light in the bedroom. This is the first someone has mentioned. I'll see if we can't add an additional blind to help out. Thank you for letting me know!

Wonderful stay in Port A!
