Condo/Apartment
Newly renovated (July 2015) with a great view of downtown Corpus Christi. Property is on the beach so less than 2 minutes after you close the door, you are on the beach!! Save time and money on your vacation or trip with this centrally located condo with too many activities to name within 10 minutes walking or driving. My condominium is a great spot to kick back and enjoy your hard earned time away. The kitchen is stocked with dishes, cookware, flatware, coffee maker and microwave oven. A laundry room with coin operated laundry is on each floor. We just purchased this Condo and will be a work in progress with many small upgrades coming. We have just added a 32' TV with Blu-ray player and in room wifi service. Sleeps up to 6** (limit of 4 adults per HOA regulations) with a Queen bed, bun...Newly renovated (July 2015) with a great view of downtown Corpus Christi.

A laundry room with coin operated laundry is on each floor. We just purchased this Condo and will be a work in progress with many small upgrades coming. We have just added a 32' TV with Blu-ray player and in room wifi service. Sleeps up to 6** (limit of 4 adults per HOA regulations) with a Queen bed, bunk beds and a sleeper sofa. It is available for weekly and monthly rentals. Very close to several nearby restaurants and pubs. It is also very close to many major attractions such as the USS Lexington, Texas State Aquarium, Whataburger field, Museum of Science and History, American Bank Center, Selena Auditorium and downtown Corpus Christi. Hurricane Alley water park just minutes away is slated to open in April of this year. It is also close to great fishing at Indian Point pier and close to fishing boats for hire as well as multiple golf courses. Just 28 miles to Port Aransas, 27 miles to Rockport and 21 miles to Padre Island. You can reserve the Condominium in one of two ways. If the reservation is longer than a week and made more than 45 days in advance, you can pay a deposit of 50% of the total with the balance due 30 days before check-in. Reservations of a week or less require a deposit of 50% with the balance due 30 days before check in. Any reservation made less than 30 days before check in must be paid in full at time of reservation. Last minute travel discounts: I will give a 15% discount for a reservation made 7 days or less in advance for open nights. Please check the calendar for availability and feel free to contact me for additional information about the property, local attractions, activities or general questions. I am a Flight Paramedic and may be out of touch for up to 6 hours at a time so text me if you call and leave a message. If you inquire by e-mail, I receive these every 15 minutes. In either case I will reply as soon as possible! Visit our Life is Good Vacation Rentals website for additional information about the condo and the area.
