Two big bedrooms, two large living areas, intimate dining room, open kitchen design, roomy bathroom. Modern washer & dryer in house. Spectacular patio & pergola make outdoor living a pleasure. A lush & cozy backyard makes it your private sanctuary. Carport for your small car and plenty of driveway space. Quiet, friendly neighborhood centrally located; walking distance to the bay, major grocery store, two hospitals (Dr's Regional & Driscoll Children's), restaurants, dollar store, gym. Under a 30 minute drive from house to beach. 10 minute walk to bay front, 5 more to kid-magnet Cole Park. 10 minutes to Downtown, 15 minutes to attractions Concrete Street Ampitheatre, Whataburger Field, American Bank Center, Hurricane Alley water park, The Lexington, Texas State Aquarium. 10 minutes to La Palmera Mall and many restaurants. 30 minutes to N. Padre Island, 40 minutes to Port Aransas. Bus stop is one block away. I have filled my home with original art, functional antiques, lovely rugs - and NO clutter! Most people when entering my home comment on the 'good energy' vibe...you will LOVE calling this place home for your stay here in Corpus Christi. As we say here; 'Mi casa es su casa!' (my house is your house). A NOTE ABOUT ME: I do have a cat that has the run of the property. She vacates the house with me when guests are here, but if you have allergies at all, this might not be a good fit. Also, I will most likely be on the property, in the little 'casita' on the other side of the patio. You can see it in the photos of the backyard/patio. My priority however is to insure your privacy; I have my own entrance from the backyard so that I don't have to invade your space. On the other hand, I am readily available for any advice about the area, or any questions or problems that could arise. ABOUT THE HOUSE VERY IMPORTANT: Please use the air conditioning judiciously; i.e. thermostat no lower than 75-78; and be conscientious about doors being opened, etc. Use all the fans provided, they are great at keeping you cool! Believe me, 78 degrees inside the house during a Corpus Christi summer feels great! If you simply must have the temp lower than 75 then you probably need to find other accommodations. Also, in the name of energy efficiency, please turn the thermostat up to at least 78 degrees if you're going to be out all day…then turn it down to sleep at night (no lower than 75 please!). That way I can actually afford to pay the electric bill and continue to share my house with other guests like you! If you're returning to the house from being at the beach, please rinse yourselves off in the garden hose - it's located in the back yard on the side of the little back building. I look forward to rigging up an outdoor shower back there for your use in the future! Trash: There is NO garbage disposal. There is a recycle bin next to the washer/dryer. The city does NOT recycle GLASS (I know, I know.) The city-sized trash & recycle cans are located on the outside wall of the carport. FYI - trash collection is on Tuesday. Checking out: You don't need to make up the beds or strip them when checking out. But DO please leave the house the way you found it; with all dishes washed or loaded into the dishwasher (no need to start it), trash taken out, and please take any perishables in the refrigerator. You can leave dirty towels in the bathroom. More

Perfect getaway to decompress 😊 Brenda was the perfect host. Her home was the ideal place to chill and relax. Her home was centrally located to get around town and shops. I highly recommend it. We will definitely book it again.
