Newly updated this completely furnished downstairs studio condominium is the perfect little beach get away or ' home away from home'. Take a leisurely stroll to the beach and Packery Chanel.

About Tracie Romel

I live and work as a Realtor in Corpus Christi Texas, my brother Jerriel lives and works in Philadelphia since 2010. We both have had the opportunity to travel extensively but both agree that there's no place we would rather be!

Tracie Romel purchased this studio in 2014

Why Tracie Romel chose Corpus Christi

Corpus Christi has been mine and my brother's home every since we were kids. As children our fondest memories were of our fishing trips to Padre Island and playing on the beach. We decided to purchase this little Island get away so that when Jerriel and his wife come down to visit they will be able to defrost and relax in the sun.

What makes this studio unique

Weather you are planning a romantic get away or a fishing trip with your buds you will enjoy the great location and the relaxing atmosphere.

Awesome place close to the beach!

  • 5 of 5

This cute little condo was perfect for my husband and I! The outside is a bit outdated but do not judge a book by its cover! It was safe, all updated inside, and the welcome basket was a nice touch! Not one thing to complain about in this close to the beach and comfortable condo.

Great little place, comfortable bed, fully stocked kitchen. Can’t beat location. One block from beach. Two chairs and umbrella here to use. Free beach parking. Couldn’t ask for a better place for a quick weekend getaway. Big bathroom extremely safe neighborhood

Very nice place with everything you need!

  • 4 of 5

Don’t judge a book by its cover! What I mean by that is when you see the condo compared to the others around, it’s not the newest or the nicest on the outside, however; when you walk into Tracie’s condo it’s AMAZING! She has the thing decorated adorably, painted up and stocked with whatever you might need! Even had a few refreshments waiting on us! The only negative I would give it would be for the pool. The pump was not going when we went to get in it so it wasn’t clean at all. (Lot of bugs & grass.) We weren’t sure if it was on a timer or if it was broke. No sign was up stating if it was broke and the water was clear, so we’re were thinking a timer maybe. Overall a great stay with literally EVERYTHING you need! We had a great time and I bet we’ll be back again! Thanks Tracie for thinking of everything for us that have enjoyed your home away from home! You’ve done a great job!

Great place

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time visiting North Padre Island. This condo was super clean and nicely decorated. The owner was a great communicator and took care of all our needs. Snacks and water were provided which was a nice touch.

Really enjoyed our stay. No unpleasant surprises. Place was exactly as posted and stated in the ad. We were very pleased with the location and the rental itself. Will reuse this one in the future.

Looking for adventure or relaxation there are so many things to do and see. Easily walk to the beach for some sun tanning, shell collecting or bird watching. You can fish from the pier at Balli Park, or from the Packary Channel. Bring your jet ski and park it along the dock, take a swim in the condominium pool. On the beach you can rent a bike, kayak, surf board, or jet ski. There is kite surfing, sail surfing, and horseback riding. Take a drive to Port Aransas for some serious game fishing. The newest Schlitterbahn Water Park is only minutes away, it's all here!
