About the property

Welcome to my home! Centrally located in a peaceful neighborhood, close proximity to the finer things Corpus Christi has to offer. Recently renovated with modern details, my home offers wide open spaces, perfect for keeping an eye on kids or socializing with colleagues and family. This space will comfortably host 8 guest. Retreat, regroup, and reboot here! It's the coolest listing in Corpus Christi!

You will find all of the necessities which you would expect, plus some great extra amenities!

The Kitchen ~

Along with a traditional oven, a Breville convection oven is included, perfect for cooking on a smaller scale. You will use All-Clad pots, pans, and cooking utensils if you choose to show off your culinary skills. Also, you will have access to a Blendtec blender great for making smoothies, soups, Bulletproof Coffee, and much more. If you love to bake, you will enjoy using the NEW Kitchen Aid mixer and NEW Cuisine Art Panini Press. The pantry is fully stocked with organic essentials needed to whip up a home cooked dish.

The Living Area ~

Just like a new white t-shirt that feels and looks better than all the rest, you will enjoy the freshness created by the crisp white linens throughout. Windows are draped with sheer white curtains that allow in just the right amount of sun light to allow you to feel that 'renewed to life' burst of energy. You will be sure to relax (and likely to fall asleep at least once) on the oversize and extremely comfortable couches. In the crisp of winter, warm your feet by the fireplace while enjoying the 70 inch television equipped with surround sound. Flip through hundreds of channels provided by the Dish Network cable service, Netflix, HBO GO provided thru APPLE TV.

The Outdoors ~

Enjoy the cool evening after a long warm day as you sit on the covered patio.

The Bedrooms ~

Each of the bedrooms offer crisp clean cotton sheets and plenty of fresh towels.

The Master ~

King size bed with a full bath.

The Second Room ~

Queen Size Bed adjacent to another full bath.

The Third Room ~

One full size bed (Low profile) perfect for little ones, also adjacent to full bath.

The Laundry Room ~

Feel free to throw a load of clothes to wash/dry if necessary. Laundry detergent will be provided.

Since this is an exclusive home, you will have complete privacy. I will be available 24/7 for local recommendations or any other needs to make your stay thoroughly enjoyable.

I understand travel can at times be stressful and complicated, especially in an unfamiliar city. If you are flying in, I can offer to provide you with transportation to and from the airport free of charge, with advance notice. In addition, I can offer to provide you a brief walk-through of the home. I will be available 24/7 via phone during your stay. Keys will be accessible via a lock-box.

This home is situated in a quiet South Side neighborhood and is only minutes away from big attractions. You will be within 15 - 20 minutes from anywhere in Corpus Christi, BUT BEST OF ALL, away from any chaos of busy traffic streets.

Great first experience in Corpus Christi, TX

  • 5 of 5

First time using VRBO - great experience, from booking, over communication to appearance and functionality of the vacation rental. Easy check-in and check-out. The house is very spacious and has a nice layout in a quiet neighborhood. Carla the host is very friendly and answered all our questions right away. If our travels should bring us back to Corpus Christi we will look up Carla's house first.

Great Corpus Cristi large house!

  • 5 of 5

Carla is a great host and very responsive to my questions. Her house is recently renovated with all the modern conveniences, very clean and refreshingly uncluttered. Master bedroom/bath is quite large and very relaxing. My 5 adult kids were very comfortable in the two side bedrooms with a double bed in each room, an additional blow-up queen mattress and the shared bath. We came to Corpus for a family funeral and found that our downtime at Carla's house (relaxing on her super comfy couches and watching movies on the huge-o TV) was one of the highlights of our weekend - good family time! Location was close to all our out-of-house activities. If we find our way to Corpus again, we will definitely stay at Carla's house!
