Please note this condo is TRULY BEACH FRONT & costs more & IS BIGGER ( 180° BEACH VIEW) and not a bay-front (45° beach only view) Photos has map of complex. I try to answer within an hour. I have true pictures of every square inch. *** 2 years ago this beach complex was really bad but now it has new management & is being fixed up very, very slowly. Think of the complex as having TONS OF CHARACTER (LOL) However, inside the condo itself, is a very cozy & clean 1 bedroom decorated simple. All my pictures are accurate. *** I own & manage one unit (2300). It is very kid friendly with the BEST PANORAMIC VIEW at this complex (20 miles in each direction) because it is a TRUE BEACHFRONT (only 45 units end in 00 to 05 & more expensive & bigger than a bayview but well worth it IMHO) & not a BAY VIEW (06 to 45). The condo is 480 square feet whereas the typical hotel room is 350 square feet. I live 10 minutes away should there be ANY problems at all. The property is gated with security. *** This is only 1 of 6 of its kind at this complex (on the top floor at the end, meaning there is only one condo to one side & one condo underneath -- no sounds of feet on the ceiling). Also, there is no foot traffic outside the door because it is at the very end. VERY, VERY, QUIET but noise is not frowned upon. It is casually beachfront decorated, not formally elegant. *** Listen to waves, enjoy coffee, watch dolphins & the panoramic view from a private balcony. The balcony is shaded after 12 so there is no hot afternoon sun. Relax completely in the shade. *** This unit is right on the beach. You could drop something from the balcony & it will land on the beach. You can actually watch teenagers & adults in the water from the balcony. The beach is much safer without driving on beach & without rip tides. *** Everything is supplied in the kitchen that you would ever need (lots of pots, pans, bake ware, utensils, cork screw, pizza cutter, full fridge, ice trays, blender, microwave, toaster, can opener, coffee maker). EVERYTHING! There are all kinds and lots of BEACH TOYS & a wagon to tote them to the beach, free WiFi, hundreds of DVD MOVIES, noodles, boogie boards, complementary coffee etc., beach chairs, umbrella stand, beach towels, beach mats, Kirby vacuum cleaner, all cleaning supplies should you need them including dish soap, hotel supplies, library of novels, & more, just ask! *** Two 40' wall mounted TVs. ***SIX PERSONS MAXIMUM NO MATTER HOW SMALL! This only sleeps 4 adults and 2 children under age 18 maximum (bunk beds are for those under 5 ' 5 ' or so). That said, 5 OR 6 ADULTS OVER THE AGE OF 18 IS NOT ALLOWED in one condo at this complex SUBJECT TO EVICTION by the complex. TEENAGERS UNDER 18 ARE CONSIDERED CHILDREN. *** For pets there are places in town that will board animals in luxurious conditions if you search. *** Biking and walking on the beach boardwalk to restaurants, shops, & sites is highly recommended. Bikes can be kept in one of 2 bike racks on the property or taken up in the elevator & stored in the hallway or on the balcony of the condo, albeit a little crowded. *** I CHARGE no cleaning fee as I expect guests to leave the condo as they found it. I will then clean and sanitize it completely and wash the linens in hot water & fabric softener. A Kirby vacuum cleaner & cleaning supplies are provided. THIS IS RENTED AS IS. I will do my best to clean it to MY STANDARDS (bleaching everything that can be bleached, vacuuming, dusting) but if you need more cleaning (or are a neat freak), my cleaning supplies or ones that you prefer & buy, will clean it better. Chances are, I will miss some cleaning & I apologize. If you wish, I will charge you 150.00 and hire a professional to clean. Please let me know. I am a very nice person who has been taken advantage of lately. Thank you for viewing my property Sincerely Rox #2300 CANCELLATIONS: If you need to cancel within the time limit, just go to cancellation policies and click on cancel reservation. No cancellations after the cancellation period. I will however offer rescheduling that must be done within 3 months for emergencies if there is availability. If not used within that time, the offer will expire. Please understand some things are OUT OF MY CONTROL like the very very rare occasion of city waterline breakage (fixed quickly), area electricity disruptions, cable TV disruptions (Roku just as good), elevator repairs (maintained well now), weather, etc. More

Interaction with guests
If you search for my video: Unit 2300 villa del sol corpus christi rox b, I have a video of the condo. *** The office gives map to the condo & where to park. Take the elevator near the street or the stairs near the beach. *** There are no keys to the room: You receive a one time easy to remember personal code to the door for the security that keys do not afford (lost key fees or all guests using the same keys). Punch in code, when it turns green turn knob. *I have a visitors guide & a guest book in the condo for your use. **Make sure door is locked when you leave the room every time.. ***VERY IMPORTANT: Anything having to do with booking & the condo are handled by me. ***FYI: the coffee maker=ground coffee (provided) not a Keurig
