Problems from day one.

  • 2 of 5

When we arrived we discovered that the condo was not clean. Dirt and dust on the baseboards, large dust balls and a sock under the bed, the floor had not been cleaned in recent times. When we informed the manager and he sent a woman to clean. When we explained what was dirty she stated that we were too particular, and then she left. The manager sent a new person the next day and she spent almost two hours cleaning the condo. Obviously, if it took two hours to clean a one bedroom condo unit then it was not clean.

Then the next week we used the oven only to discover that it did not heat properly. The bottom element was not working. A repair person arrived the next day to fix that problem

When the weather warmed up we turned on the air conditioning only to discover that it did not work. So five days later a new outside transfer coil was installed.

The next week the clothes dryer stopped working. It was a faulty door switch. While the repair person was there he sanded the rust on the inside of the door and repainted it, which meant we had to wait another day for the paint to dry. So we lost the use of the dryer for almost four days.

The toilet keeps starting to flush but does not actually flush, so at night we closed the door to stop the noise from annoying us. The overhead fan in the bedroom does not work. Both these items need to be repaired.

Unfortunately we do not have the name of the owner as VRBO states in the fine print that you must have the name of the manager and owner in order to make a claim. We would certainly have made a claim had we been able to obtain the owner's name as we feel we should be entitled to compensation for the dirty condition of the unit and the constant problems with the appliances and air conditioning.

Island Time fun

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Beach Club Condominiums. "Island Time" was the condo we stayed in at the establishment. Very comfortable bed and the condo was stocked with everything we needed during our stay including a complete kitchen and plenty of towels. We enjoyed being so close to the beach as we could load up and drive right down the street and be set up for our day of lounging in 10 minutes. The pool and hot tub were very nice as well with plenty of lounge chairs and seating. We were within 5 minutes of almost any kind of restaurant so the location was very convenient. Highly recommend this property!

Perfect location that was walking distance to a great beach. Rooms were tidy and pleasantly decorated. Balcony was appreciated as well as all the amenities.

Location, you can't beat it!

  • 3 of 5

If you are looking for location, THIS IS the place to stay. My wife and I really enjoyed being able to walk over to the beach and wander around, without the need to worry about vehicles, and whatnot. You are just around the corner from JB’s Germany Bakery, an eating experience that I am looking forward to repeating.

As for the Condo, itself. It is nicely decorated, but it is in need of some attention. I have allergies, and as a result I notice things, like dust build up on ceiling fans, dust dogs (much bigger than bunnies) in the corners, and build up on the HVAC vents. While there, I cleaned the ceiling fans, and got some of the crud off of a couple of the HVAC Vents, it just bothered me too much. I applaud the closing off of the fireplace, as it doesn’t make sense to have it be another ingress for sand from the beaches. However, the fireplace really needs to be cleaned out, as it appears that the damper is open and there are numerous feathers and other things floating around in there.

The kitchen does have all of the necessary amenities. What cooking we did, all of the necessary tools were available.

I really enjoyed my time here, and I would definitely consider staying here again, especially if the cleaning team ups their game.

Owner's Response: I apologize for the dust in the unit but thank you for letting me know. I will speak to my cleaning crew about that. For future reference, if you will call us about any issues like this during your stay then we will be more than happy to send someone out to take care of this while you are at the beach or pool or out for dinner. Anytime we will not be in your way. Sorry about the fireplace. It is very hard to keep things like dust or feathers out of there since it is an open air source which is why we have it blocked off. I will be getting that cleaned out though. Thank you for your stay and thank you for taking the time to leave a review. We would love to have you stay here again!

Plenty for restaurants, bars and shops on the island. Mini golf, horseback riding and fishing close by plus Schlitterbahn Water Park and plenty of beaches of course. You can also visit downtown Corpus Christi just 20 miles away to visit the beautiful bayfront, the amazing water gardens, natural science and art museums, or take in a baseball game at Whataburger Field, a show at Harbor Playhouse or check to see what is going on at the American Bank Center. Plus more restaurants and bars. Take a trip over the Harbor Bridge from downtown Corpus Christi to North Beach to visit the Texas State Aquarium or the USS Lexington Museum on the Bay. Also, only 10 miles from the island is beautiful Port Aransas for more shopping, eating and beaches.
