About the property

**Newly Renovated April 2017** Lazy Breeze Retreat is meant to be just that...a retreat from your normal lives for a few days, weeks or months.

***We too are still recovering from Hurricane Harvey! Our condo property sustained minor damage and for that, we are so grateful. There is ongoing reconstruction going on all around us. Please come to Corpus Christi and the surrounding areas to support the ongoing recovery effort. Your vacation could really help those of us who are working to get back to 'normal' after the storm.

We offer a 640 square foot condo with a king size bed and a full pull out sofa with memory foam topper. The kitchen is fully equipped, stove, oven, microwave, fridge and coffee maker. All utensils, glassware and cooking gear are provided for your use. Glass top dining table seats 4.

Sip your morning coffee overlooking the pool and canal on your private balcony.The pool is surrounded by the building on 3 sides so you can usually find a patch of shade or sun depending on your preferences.

We provide a full washer and dryer in the condo. We provide towels and wash cloths for in condo use. We ask that you bring your own beach towels. Guests are responsible for all of their own toiletries.

Flat screen TVs in both the living room and bedroom with cable. If you bring your portable device wifi is provided by the Mystic Harbor complex.

We are on the 2nd floor so you have a great view but if you are tired at the end of your fun filled day...there is an elevator! We even have hotel carts to help you haul up all your stuff.

The Mystic Harbor complex is a secure location that allows access only with a magnetic key card. There are also cameras throughout the complex keeping watch. With only 33 units in the complex itself, it is a quiet complex where you will not get lost like some of the big complexes.

If you enjoy fishing and bring your own boat, slips are on a first come first serve basis. There is boat trailer parking in the parking lot or in the lot adjacent to the complex parking lot. When you catch your limit, you can clean them at the fish cleaning station on the dock, but please be kind and dispose of all trash in the dumpster.

There are several beaches that are a short drive away (less than 5 minutes). The great thing about the beaches on North Padre is that you can drive right on the beach, so really...regardless of where you are staying you are most likely going to drive to the beach with all your stuff (think chairs, towels, cooler, toys etc..)

Check out time: 11:00am

Check in time: 4:00pm

Come stay & play with us at The Lazy Breeze Retreat!

Why Megan and John Gordon chose Corpus Christi

We chose this particular property because we looked at many condos and kept thinking...if we were coming down to Corpus, what would we be looking for? What is a family like ours looking for in a vacation rental. We are a family of 5 that is on a budget but looking for something that meets all of our needs. This Condo does just that.

Wonderful place!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in this freshly remodeled, spacious condo in an older but well maintained 3 story building. It has everything you will need. Very nice pool area with a newly expanded deck. Meagan was a pleasure to work with, she kept us informed and checked on us during our stay. We plan on staying again when we are in the area.

Enjoyed the place, very nice unit, can tell it is very well maintained. Access to many attractions and places to eat and shop. Boat trailer parking a positive. Boat slips and dock a positive. Pool is awesome. Nice beach close by, but need a vehicle.

Great location on a canal, boat slip available, quiet, safe and secure!

  • 4 of 5

The condo was great, perfect size for my husband and I for a week! This room overlooks the pool area and down to the boat slips. Upon arrival, the room was clean and ready for us! Keys were left up front in a lock box for us. The condo has a safe and secure entrance, each guest has a card that unlocks the front door, which leads to an elevator. I would say if you are handicap or with someone who is handicapped, this condo would be difficult for you or a loved one to get to. It has a very Narrow entrance, there is an elevator and stairs to your desired floor and then a door to go thru, to go back to the secured exterior of the condos to find your room number (it has a hotel/motel setup/look.) Meaning, there is no door to go to an outside yard or down to the boat slips/canal. You must exit your front door and around the condos to go to slip, dock and pool!

Our only complaint was that there was construction while we were there in the parking lot and on the boat slip/dock/pool area. The owner was apologetic for it, however it was sometimes difficult to get to your boat, fish cleaning station, etc. However, the construction will make the condos nicer in the future for more guests!

Again, it was a great location and close to many great restaurants, owners were very nice and checked in via email during our stay!

The place is very convenient because of its striking proximity to everything you want to do in visiting corpus Christi - fishing areas, beach, schlitterbahn et al...

the owner is wonderful. We have been renting properties during vacations, and we have not met an owner who is so attached, cordial, accommodating to its renter... she (Megan)not only responds to your call timely but she regularly follow up on your convenience of your stay... love it... thank you.. kudos and keep it up...

Winter Escape!

  • 5 of 5

We planned a winter escape this year, and really enjoyed our time at Lazy Breeze Retreat. Megan and John were very responsive with our questions, the place was well stocked, and the location was great for everywhere we wanted to go.

Car: recommended

North Padre Island will always hold a special place in my heart as this is where I grew up. There is so much to do on the Island itself and of course Corpus Christi. There is no way to list all of the great places and things to do, but here are some of our favorites (in no particular order...).

* The Beach! Several location beaches to choose from. We are one of the last remaining beaches that you can drive on, so take advantage. If you are not 100% about driving on the sand, go down to Bob Hall Pier, they have a parking lot...and restrooms!

(Many places that are 'close to the beach' are fantastic for a stroll, but if you are going for an extended period of time, most people are going to drive to their spot of sandy relaxation. It would be difficult to carry all of the stuff for a day at the beach, even a block or two.)

*Fishing. Nothing like catching some trout or redfish and having fresh fish for dinner. Yummy!

*Jet-Skiing/Para-Sailing - If you are looking for something a little faster paced!

*Horseback Riding on the Beach - Need I say more?

*Birding - Corpus Christi is the Birdiest city in America.

*Schlitterbahn - Coming Soon...just down the street.

*Texas State Aquarium. - Come see what is in the waters of the Gulf of Mexico!

*USS Lexington - Real Big Fun! World War II aircraft carrier there for you to explore.

(We recommend that you plan to do the TSA and Lex on the same day. They are right next to each other and each can be done in several hours. The TSA has a splash the kiddo's might get wet!)

The beauty of Lazy Breeze Retreat is that it is actually walking distance to so many things. And when I say walking distance, I really mean it.


*Padre Pizzaria

*Texas BBQ

*Ice Cream!

*Two nail salons (make those toes pretty!)

*Donut Shop


*Third Coast - Shopping!

*Minor Emergency Clinic - Hoping you will never need!

There are multiple bars and restaurants scattered throughout North Padre Island and Port Aransas.
