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 lovely historic home that will be your private sanctuary for your stay in CC. Completely self check-in. When standing at the front door, on the floor of the porch to your right; there is a "fake rock" - it's grey plastic & you'd never know it wasn't just a rock unless you're looking for it! There is a key inside; let yourself into the house - just inside the door, hanging on the coat rack, is another key you can use to come & go during your stay. Please put the original key back in the "rock" and place back outside for the next guest - or you just might need it if you lock yourself out ;-). Then at the end of your stay, just do the reverse.
Interaction with Guests
I actually live in another town; but have a team there in CC should there be any problems. That said, I am easily reachable by phone first (you can call or text), email second.
My neighborhood is truly special - historic, peaceful, friendly. Centrally located - close to everything that counts. Walk to the bay front & stroll along Ocean Drive. Groceries, a gym, drug store, dollar store, coffee shop all are minutes away.
Bus stop is close by. I HIGHLY recommend staying on the water side of S.P.I.D.; the main artery that runs through town. That is, unless you're a fan of franchise restaurants & box stores when traveling to a new place (really?). Downtown, which has unique local restaurants (seafood anyone?) & FUN waterside attractions is a quick 10 minute drive away.
Your groceries are a few blocks away at the closest HEB - basic goods only at this one - if you're a foodie at all, you'll want to drive a few miles further to the HEB at Alameda & Robert.
Being an eco-friendly family, we kindly ask our guests to follow some simple eco-tips: keep your showers short, and shut off the water while you're brushing your teeth.
When you leave the house, turn up/down the thermostat, television, lights or any other electric devices. Reuse your towels instead of having them changed often. We thank all our guests for sharing with us this concern being convinced that all these little actions will contribute to keep Earth greener!
Please! No smoking in the house. Outside smokers, please make sure all your butts are properly disposed of; i.e. use the ash tray and then throw those in the outside trash can so no one else has to deal with them! Absolutely NO parties. If we've negotiated to bring your dog along, please remember to pick up their poop from the yard! I ask that you treat the things in my home the same way you would when staying as a guest in a friend's home - leave everything as you found it - except the beds do not need to be made up or stripped. Towels can be left in the bathroom or on top of the washer.
A WORD ABOUT THE AIR CONDITIONING
Please keep the thermostat set to no lower than 76 degrees, preferably 78! It is an old system & you don't want it to freeze up on you and cause it to stop working. Believe me, 78 degrees inside during a Corpus Christi summer feels great! Use the fans throughout the house; they will contribute greatly to keeping you cool & comfortable. If you are someone who just has to have super cold air, then my house is not a good fit for you - contact me asap and we'll cancel your reservation. Also, in the name of energy efficiency & the environment, please turn the thermostat UP to at least 80degrees if you're going to be gone all day! The house will quickly cool down when you return. You will help to keep my electric bill down and that helps me to keep this vacation rental thing going for others to enjoy!
