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

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

The bathroom is so nice! We didn't cook but there is everything available. The pool and hot tub were close and perfect. The only things we wish for was a full length mirror, the teenage girl needs to see herself in all her glory! The bed was super nice and the towels and linens were of exceptional quality. We had brought a couple of snuggle blankets with us which worked out. We didn't find a quilt/blanket for the sleeper sofa. I recommend this condo and the trip to Padre. So much fun, we didn't want to leave!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the wonderful review. We're so glad you enjoyed your stay. Thank you for the suggestion on the mirror. I will put one in the bathroom or bedroom. Personally, I am past glory days and avoid the truth! : ) Both beds should have sheets, blankets, and mattress pad. For future guests, please let me know immediately if anything is missing so I can have housekeeping address.

Great place

  • 4 of 5

Place was lovely, nice and clean and Cathy was very timely in her responses and returning our deposit. Unit was equipped with everything we needed plus. Short walk to the beach and complex was nice. Only draw back and this is not Cathy's fault the grounds at the complex have a lot of stickers in the grass and was hard for our little dog to walk without getting into them. Otherwise was a very nice place and very enjoyable visit

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review! Maintenance and the HOA are working on addressing the burrs. They are such invasive island dwellers!

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.
