Professionally decorated luxury ocean view condo is newly opened on Labor Day weekend 2013! It’s a short walk directly onto Whitecap beach on Padre Island! This condo has a broad view of the ocean to one side, and the property lagoon, pool and hot tub to the other side. Several palm trees stand within feet from the balcony and rustle in the wind. Inside there are tile floors, white leather furniture and an antique iron bed, flat-screen cable TVs in LR and BR, Netflix and Blueray DVD. High-speed internet allows you to work or play online in the unit or on the balcony. Washer and dryer, and a clean, modern full kitchen, all conveniences are included. The condo can sleep 4-5 people with a queen bed, an extra queen mattress for the living room, and a twin foldout sofa. Amenities onsite include a beautiful pool, hot tub, sauna and a well equipped fitness center (these are available to you 24/7). Pond, inlet and surf-fishing are available on the property or within easy walk. Padre Island National Park, the longest undeveloped stretch of barrier island in the world, is less than 10 miles away. Mustang Island State Park is 5 miles away. Restaurants, shopping and nightlife abound in North Padre Island and nearby Port Aransas. Everything you need for a relaxing, invigorating vacation is on location or nearby!

We enjoyed our stay. The condo was clean, cute and very convenient to the beach.
Wonderful experience, I stayed here for almost 3 months and had no problems. Ken is a great, accommodating host. If I ever go back to Corpus this will be the first place I look to stay.
Ken was a great host, with super quick responses to any questions I had. The condo was nice, but not exactly luxury. The bed was comfortable, the water pressure was great and there was plenty of hot water; note the bathroom is inside the bedroom. The balcony is small, but private with about 4 chairs and a small table; it also boasts the same great view as in the pictures. The kitchen has a breakfast bar with 2 stools and a dining table with 4 additional counter height stools. The netflix worked great and there is an additional tv in the bedroom, but no netflix in there.
The pool was steps away from the building which was great and the parking space is right by the entrance to both the building and the pool! We didn't make it to the beach, but it must have been super close because there were cars parked along the back entrance road of the complex. Note, it is a 3rd floor walk-up and the common area is not air conditioned and could have used a vacuuming.
Plenty of pillows and an extra set of sheets/comforter for the available additional mattress (we didn't use). The closet is huge, but the mattress does impede on how far the door opens.
Turn the ice maker on immediately upon arrival, it will take some time to fill the ice bin.
Remember things like tin foil, cooking spray, condiments, etc when you go grocery shopping (hit the HEB before crossing the bridge) No extras available in the kitchen and no baking pans - we used a make-shift tin foil "pan" to bake some of our meals.
Gas stations, a couple fast food restaurants and a CVS are nearby.
Port Aransas is about a 30 minute drive.
Ken is a wonderful host! The condo is clean, orderly and close to the beach. I would absolutely stay here again.
We had a fantastic time at the beach. The location is great and affordable, the decor of this unit appealing, and the access via Wifi and Netflix is fantastic. It is just a short walk down the path alongside the road to White Cap Beach. We would happily return.
Great place to stay. Easy access to the beach and town. Loved our time in Corpus.
This was our first trip to the Texas coast. We had a very good time with great birding, kayaking, and sight seeing. The beaches were much wider and longer than any we have visited in Florida. Ken was very responsive to all our questions. The condo was pretty basic with some nice electronic amenities. Unfortunately the weather was quite cool and the pool is not heated, so we could not swim. I would have to agree with a previous reviewer that Ken has a few things to improve to be able to call this a "Luxury" condo.

I live in Austin. I work for IBM. I'm a Airbnb member and rent my condo in Austin on occasion and rent my beach condo on VRBO. I will be very respectful of your property.
