About the property

Newly Renovated 2014... 1 Bed/ 1 Bath King Condo Steps From The Beach

This newly remodeled 1 bed/1 bath condo sits on the 3rd floor overlooking Lake Padre and comes fully furnished w/ all the amenities for a 2 day or 2 month stay. Don’t worry about fumbling around looking for the door key with your hands full, just type in your personal 4 digit code and step into Heaven.

The Condo is furnished with all new stylish/ beachy furniture throughout, making you think your toes have just met the sand!!! If the colors don’t reach out and grab you then the 55’’ Smart LED/ 3D TV mounted above the rocked fireplace will do it! Need a quick break from the ride in, take a seat on either the sofa or our oversized chair and if you’re really tired open them up and make a bed (Sofa makes into a Queen Sleeper & chair makes into a Twin bed for the little ones, but still comfortable enough for dad). Netflix and DVD/Blue-ray player is included with the option of 3D (Glasses on the mantle). The mounted sound-bar and secluded subwoofer will bring the theater to you as you sit back and enjoy your favorite movie or music.

If you’re like me, bypass it all and jump right to the master bedroom sinking into the King Bed with only one thought…” We are finally on Vacation”!!!

The master has a full walk-in closet with plenty of storage and hanging space, there is also a nightstand or media chest for any additional drawer space and a 32” LED TV.

When it’s time to cook or snack, check out the updated kitchen stocked with all standard appliances, utensils, cookware and glassware. Margarita and Wine classes are stocked at the adult level for that 5 o’clock somewhere feeling w/ the blender or margarita machine of your choice. Counter top and bar have been upgraded to high end granite with bar stools to sit and enjoy your drink of choice.

Enjoy our K-Cup coffee maker/ regular coffee maker (Bring K-cups and coffee of your choice) while reading the paper at the dining table, bar or on the balcony overlooking everything from Lake Padre to your personal parking spot (right in front of stairwell), BBQ area, horseshoe pit and boat parking. If you happen to be in town for Fourth of July or New Years, you can sit and watch the Fireworks from the balcony.

The restroom is updated with high end granite and fully tiled Shower/ 20” deep Jacuzzi soaker Tub just in case you want your own privacy, along with plenty of towels for the family!

Whether you’re laying on the King bed, Sofa’s, sitting at the bar, on the balcony or just soaking in the tub you can stream the internet fast and in style w/ your own private Wi-Fi.

Just like all the amenities inside the condo are offered to our quests, so are the amenities

of Beach Club. The pool, hot tub and fitness area is open 24 hrs as long you abide by the rules and have the proper entry card. There is also a great Gazebo/lounging area near the pool and a stocked pond on site for all guests (Fishing licenses and State rules still apply).

About Richard Hernandez

I grew up around CC and attended college here, staying an additional 2 years before work moved me to Laredo TX. I reside in Laredo now with my Wife (Celina) and 2 children (Cade 4yrs & Emalie 3 months). Celina is Speech Pathologist in Laredo and I work as Process Operator in Natural Gas Plant when I'm not playing golf.

Richard Hernandez purchased this condo in 2013

Why Richard Hernandez chose Gulf Coast

We enjoy visiting CC and have many friends still around living there, so it just seemed right to purchase a vacation home for us spend the weekends for fishing or golf outings. Then we figured why not let others enjoy it as we do, since some see 3 feet of snow most of the year and we see 3 feet of sand all year around!

It was centrally located with everything a person would need within walking or driving distance and Schlitterbaun is going to be a great addition to the Island for all to enjoy.

What makes this condo unique

I really like the balcony view of Lake Padre even if it's just water right now, in the near future it will be a perfect view of the Marina...with boats parked all around and lit up like the Fourth of July.

Very Nice and Very Clean

  • 5 of 5

I very much enjoyed my stay and there is a good chance that I will return.

Very well equipped and has everything you need for your stay and much more.

Just be aware that the in the add the bathroom states "Jacuzzi tub" and it is indeed a 20" tub but does not have the Jacuzzi jets.

They even have a place to rinse off your car on the site, very nice!

The owner is a blessing to deal with.

Hurricane Harvey : (

  • 1 of 5

This was my first time using VRBO. Unfortunately, Hurricane Harvey landed. I cancelled 2 days before we were to arrive. Watching the news I was sadden by what we were seeing. People losing their lives & homes.

Was told by owner power was back on...... beach was being cleaned & most businesses should be open. We did receive most of our money back expect 200.00 that owner kept.

( I did only give 48 hours notice). VRBO also keeps a portion. I was disappointed. Just couldn't see ourselves in TX "vacationing" as people were having the hardest time in their lives. Richard the owner does response to messages In a timely manner. Just was not a good time to visit.

Quaint place with great location

  • 5 of 5

We loved the location of this condo in the island. We made use of the pool and gym and tried multiple beach access points just a short drive in any direction. For our family of four the size was perfect. The master bed is very comfortable. The pull out couch worked for our toddlers but would be a rough night's sleep for anyone with any kind of weight, like most pull out beds. However we did love the place overall and the owner was very accommodating when we had to cut our trip short to evacuate for Hurricane Harvey. We heard this place didn't have any damage which was great to hear! Thank you and we'll be back!

Very cute place, close walk to the beach, owner is excellent!

  • 5 of 5

I couldn't be happier with renting this place for our family of five to stay at while on vacation!

Richard is wonderful to communicate with and you can tell he is an outstanding, honest person. This was my first time renting with VRBO and I was hesitant and asked a million questions, he was kind and answered me very quickly with each one.

Yes, this is on the top floor so there are plenty of stairs to take during your stay but the upside to this is that it's quiet and no one is above you to have to listen to being noisy.

We loved that there was wifi, a full size washer and dryer, was only a short walk with our three kids to Whitecap beach when we wanted go and when we were there it wasn't crowded and it was very clean.

We enjoyed the location being close to North Padre and Port Aransas so we could do activities in both places during our stay as well as in Corpus Christi and we didn't have to drive very far to anything that we did.

We would definitely recommend this condo and would love to stay there again!
