Feel your cares slip away as you walk the beach at sunrise. Sip a cool drink from our second floor 'sunset balcony' off the back second floor bedroom, while the sun slips to the horizon. Watch the lights of Corpus Christi twinkling in the distance in the evenings.

Greet the morning from the patio in the front of the villa... or relax here in the shade of the afternoon...

With two floors of living space, you have lots of room to spread out - give the kids their own floor, or comfortably accommodate two families with this great floor plan!

Please - NO MORE THAN 8 OCCUPANTS - THIS IS THE INSURANCE LIMIT unless 1 is an infant and sleeps in the pack n play. You will be required to check in at the office when you arrive in order to get a parking pass for each car.

The place was great and in a good location. Only draw back was the lack of bathroom facilities by the pool or a place to wash off the beach sand. Suggest you go during the week to enjoy a less crowed beach.

Management response:

J, So glad you enjoyed the amenties of our complex. There is a shower right where the boardwalk and the complex meet, to wash off the sand; we'll try and put it on our map so future guests are aware of it! Thanks so much for staying with us, and do come back again during the week, or the off-season!

Convenient location. It rained and the walkway to the beach was flooded, probably due to construction on property in front of complex. A bit dated but very nice overall. Hoping to stay again this summer.

Management response:

Dear HG, so glad you enjoyed the property despite the rainy boardwalk issue - we'd love to host you and your family again, so just let us know when you're ready to return! You were great guests! Your beach hosts, Mary and Bill

About the neighborhood
we are located in the El Cortez Villas, about 3 miles outside of town so it's quiet and family-oriented... 2 pools on site (we are closer to the bigger one) and community bbq grills as well as fish cleaning station on site. Golf cart access to the beach allows you to jaunt into town via the beach or haul your stuff down (rentals are all over the city).
