Close to everything, great place to relax!
This condo was truly the perfect place for us to relax in after a day at the beach, or sightseeing! Loved how the deck was totally kid-proof, so we didn’t have to worry having our one-year-old on it with us. We were comfortable, so close to the Lexington and the State Aquarium, and only 35-45 minutes from the state & national beaches at Mustang Island and Padre Island. And we also could walk onto the beach from the condo complex — definitely nice! We’d stay here again! Tim was easy to get ahold of, and really kind to let us check in quite a bit earlier — he practically gave us a free day! We were very grateful to him: that was incredible, and definitely “above and beyond “.
When we checked in we were immediately charged for a Key card for the 'Secure' parking and Private Beach access. We were also told if we were going to use the pool, we would need to purchase a pass per person, that would be returned to us when we left.
I had read that we would be charged for parking and I liked the idea of the controlled location, but, other than the first day that we were there, access to the condo was open to anyone. The gate was never closed, let alone ever locked.
The condo had a peculiar smell, like it had been wet, I assume from the hurricane last year.
There was not much in furniture, it claims to sleep 5. But in the living room, there was a two person futon and two chairs from the kitchen table that we used. The seating was not an issue for us, but it is something that could be for others.
To top it all off we found a few roaches staying with us in the condo. Not really anything we wanted to take home with us.
The beach was great. The private beach access was great. My daughter and I walked the beach every morning looking for shells. The location on North Beach was very nice and easy to get to. Lots of things to do.
First, I would like to apologize if the guest did not have a good time, my wife and I do our best to make sure everyone has a nice time at our condo. Let me respond to a couple of this guest issues. This condo does sleep five, it has a day bed, queen bed, couch bed, as mentioned in the ad. I would say it would be a tight fit for 2 adults on the couch, usually that's where people put the kiddos. We only included a few chairs since we felt like we had adequate sitting with the couch, this is a small condo so we tried to maximize the space. During the guest stay we were replacing the fence and the gates, but had a security guard on site. I also have an issue with the pool bands, and I am trying to work with the facility to fix this. Since we should have a fence and gate up as of 4/23/18, hopefully this will go away. As for the water smell, I thought that was gone, when I checked. This was not from the Hurricane, the condo above ours had a water leak. The roaches has never been an issue before and we have done a spray since this guest had left. Thanks for the update maybe the condo above us had issue since they were doing construction. I think every issue has been address and fixed thank you for your review. Anyone that stays at our condo can feel free to call me and I will address issue during your stay if I can.

The owner really helped us out when we were desperate to find a place after the hurricane.
Condo was great, but the property was not!
The condo itself was as expected. It was nicely decorated and was comfortable. The only complaint was the lack of a curtain on the glass foots, the lack of a coffee table and not enough towels. Also there is a $15 parking fee that I don't remember reading about originally! The owner was very responsive too. The rest of the property was pretty run down and not very well taken care of.
Overall we loved it!
Nice condo, decorated nicely. Kinda small for our family of five. But not to bad. We did have to buy more toilet paper, not really a big deal. My only complaint would be not with the condo itself but with the complex it's in. You have to pay a charge to swim at their pool. You have to pay $0.25 to fill a small ice bucket you are provided. When you check in you must pay a $15.00 check in fee. I did not know this, but I was glad it was only $15. The owner himself, Tim was very nice and answered any questions I had in a timely manner. Had no issue with him. All in all our trip was a success and the stay was pretty good. Oh yea, no movie channels in this room and no guide you have to flip through channels to see what's on.
I appreciate every response we receive thank you and I am glad this guest had a good time. I did however want to take this opportunity to clarify a couple of items. First the pool is not an additional fee, the office gives you an opportunity to rent and armband for the kids so they do not have to carry around a key card. That will be an additional fee, but I think you get that back if you return it. Please check with the front office on that detail. There is an $15 fee when you check in this is for key cards and parking passes, this unfortunately is not refundable. The front office should have a channel listing, I try to leave a channel list in the room but it tends to get discarded. The last thing the ice machine, if you want a "glass of ice" and I do mean glass and have $.25 you can use it, but I wouldn't waste your time. It would be best to grab a bag on your way in.
The property owner kept us informed prior to arrival and as we checked in. The unit was all that was described with the exception of the complex office requirement of a $15 non refundable check in which the desk clerk explained was for the two key cards for gate access; $5 for additional cards. Non refundable whether the cards are returned at the end of our stay! No incidents occured during our stay that needed property owner or facility attention. The unit included all our necessities, linen, kitchen pots/pans, utensils. Dishwashing liquid and complimentary K cups as well! The oven worked well for our dinner casseroles! There was a malfunction with the fire alarm system throughout the building early one morning which startled us. The malfunction continued throughout the morning. Best visit on the beach in years with no encounters with jelly fish and tar in the water! We look forward to our next visit!
North beach is a popular kiteboarding hot spot. People travel from all over the world to kiteboard in Corpus Christi.
