Overview

About the property

One bedroom, one bath with bunk beds and sofa sleeper

Enjoy breathtaking ocean views right from your living room or from your kitchen as you cook your favorite meal. If you step out onto the balcony, you will see not only the amazing ocean views, but all three of the lagoon style pools and hot tub.

The main pool is heated for the cooler months and one of the pools is a large kiddie pool that is 2.5 feet deep…perfect for your little ones! There is a boardwalk that takes you straight to the beach. When you are ready to head back to the condo to dive into the pool, or BBQ on one of the property grills, you can rinse off at one of the two washing stations.

Our condo has a luxurious king bed in the bedroom with bedding that will assure you a great night's rest. The large, whirlpool tub/shower is also a place of soothing relaxation. There are two twin bunk beds hidden into the wall. These are perfect for your kiddies but also comfortably sleep adults (Up to about 5'9' tall). We have a brand new sleeper sofa with a plush mattress that will also assure a great night's sleep.

The kitchen is perfectly equipped for all of your kitchen needs. We love to cook, so having all of the kitchen essentials is a must! We have high grade Calphalon cookware that will be the first ingredient to your tasty meals.

Our condo is family-friendly with games, plastic dish wear, a baby seat for dining and even a pack n play! Your children will love sleeping in the bunk beds, playing on the beach, and swimming in the children's pool.

Our condo is in a perfect location on the beach, where it is only 10 miles from Port Aransas and 6 miles to Padre Island. Our condo is the closest condo in Port Aransas to the newly opened Schlitterbahn water park. There are so many things to do in both Port Aransas and Corpus Christi and our location is perfect!

You can fish the surf, piers or the jetties and you can take your fresh catch to a local restaurant where they will cook and prepare it as you desire. You can take a deep sea fishing trip, visit the Texas State Aquarium, USS Lexington in Corpus, or have a Park Ranger lead you on a beach walk. Don't forget you can also kayak to the 1857 Lydia Ann Lighthouse - the only Texas lighthouse with live-in caretakers!

About Minerva Cuellar

We live in central Texas and we wanted an island retreat right on the beach.

When we came to Mayan Princess we knew this would fit our dreams perfectly! We love sharing our home with family and friends…it is a sweet location with a short drive for everyone coming from San Antonio, Austin, Houston and Dallas.

Minerva Cuellar purchased this condo in 2014

Why Minerva Cuellar chose Gulf Coast

We loved the glorious gulf views right from our living room. Even washing dishes is fun as you have this view from the kitchen too!

What makes this condo unique

It truly is a perfect location! I can't say enough about this beachfront property. You will love the pools and the gorgeous beach! It is a short drive to Port Aransas when you are looking to enjoy a night out.

loved our 2nd stay at this Condo

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful time staying for the second time at this condo. It is very clean and spacious with nice furnishings. The kids bunk beds were a big hit and they couldn't get enough of the three beautiful swimming pools. We are definitely making this our regular summer vacation place.

Beautiful condo with a great location

  • 5 of 5

The condo is very well taken care of and has a wonderful view of the gulf. The pools were never crowded and it was a quick walk to the pools and the beach. The shower/jacuzzi combo was spacious and a nice touch, though there isn't a door on it, so make sure you like the people you are staying with! This a great unit for a family trip, with bunk beds for kids and a good size bed for the parents. The bathroom and shower in the bedroom would make it a bit tougher if you wanted to stay with friends but is perfect for a single family unit. We had to reach out the owner with a question once and she was prompt and courteous in getting back with us. We spent many a morning and evening on the large porch with a coffee or cocktail enjoying the sound and view of the waves. If given the chance, we would gladly rent in this condo again in the future.

Beautiful condo and property

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this condo at Mayan Princess. The property has a gorgeous, resort style pool area with 3 pools to chose from so it never felt crowded! The condo had everything we needed and was beautifully decorated, our little boy loved the bunk beds and stayed in them as soon as he had showered from the beach. The beach was clean and well kept, and the owner was so nice and accommodating and checked in with us to make sure we had everything we needed:) It was a fabulous weekend!!

Very relaxing

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at may an princess and we really enjoyed the pools and easy access to the beach. The staff was courteous and helpful and we love visiting. When it got windy we were even able to drive out cat on the beach as a buffer. Great vacation spot!

Wonderful for those of us who want to see/hear the waves and close walk to ocean!!

  • 4 of 5

Great clean place to stay!!! Easy check in process, super close to ocean, loved the balcony and loved hearing and seeing the waves while having coffee on the balcony!! Just wished Mayan Princess (or whoever's responsibility it is to clean that part of the beach) had done so while we were there. Otherwise, wonderful positive experience all the way around!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your great review! I'm so happy to hear you enjoyed the balcony and listening to the ocean sounds! Right now, there is more seaweed than is typical. The Mayan Princess staff has called to report the issue to the National Seashore as they are responsible to clean the beaches. I hope to have you back again for your next vacation!

Stay AWAY

  • 1 of 5

If I could give this a zero I would.

When my husband and I arrived, we were greeted by the smell of mold. This place was dirty, and in need of a deep clean, not just a quick wipe down between guests. We left, after about an hour, to stay at a hotel because after what I saw I wasn't about to crawl under those sheets for the night. It was things like:

THE SMELL

Dead bug on the countertop

Dirty looking bathtub

Dingy bathroom cabinets that hadn't been wiped down in what appeared to be a very long time

Dried food particles that got stuck to my elbows when I sat down at the kitchen table

Layers of grime buildup on the air filter grate in the living room

Peeling laminate furniture

Patch up paint spots on the wall that didn't quite match the rest of the paint

Rust sliding door tracks

The huge windows in the living room are very frosty/dirty looking- there is not really a view unless you go outside, and the whole place just feels dark

I've used VRBO, Airbnb, and other rental sites many times and have NEVER been disappointed before now. I don't expect ANYTHING other than clean.

We notified the owner immediately of our departure, and told her we would not be spending any of our reservation in her condo. She said she would've sent a cleaning crew the next day, but honestly it was such a bad impression, I wasn't too interested. She continuously stated that she normally gets compliments on how clean it is, and that she was surprised I called it dingy because her furniture is <2 yrs old and from Braden's. Perhaps that is true, but its unfortunate that it doesn't seem to have been well cared for. She also called the next day to verify that we wouldn't be returning because someone else was interested in booking during our reservation. I told her that we wouldn't, but that I did expect a refund for the days she rebooked. I never asked for a refund EXCEPT under these circumstances. She says that she didn't book the condo, so we weren't refunded. She also offered a refund for the cleaning fee and taxes last week, but I've yet to see it and doubt I ever will. Lastly, and most irritating of all, she accused me of lying. She saw, from a review on VRBO, that I had booked a larger house for the rest of our vacation, and told me that it led her to believe the reason for my departure was not cleanliness, but simply that I needed more space (options are VERY limited with <24hrs notice). And through it all she never once apologized.

Owner's Response: I am sincerely disappointed for the unfortunate experience this guest had. After seeing the email she sent to me at 10pm, I called her right away and left her a voice mail to apologize and to let her know that I would have someone out to immediately clean for her. After not hearing from her, I also sent an email again apologizing to her and letting her know that I would be more than happy to have someone come out to re-clean. I did send this guest a refund that she should have received by now. We continually strive to update our unit and make investments each year to provide our guests with upmost luxurious facilities and excellent service. As one can see from my 30+ reviews on this site, it is clear that cleanliness, communication, and achieving a high level of service for my guests is extremely important to me.
