“A really nice place to stay for a family vacation.”

I took my family to Corpus for a family vacation and stayed in Jack's condo. The place was very well equipped and very comfortable. All the kitchen utensils, pots, pans, plates, glasses, cutlery, etc. were not only supplied, but in quantity. TV's in every room, a nice back deck and fronting on the water. The location on Padre Island was very good. Just a short drive to beaches and stores. Maybe the best thing was the neighbor, Michael, (the local contact person) who was super friendly and helpful. The only downside for us was that the beds were a on the soft side. Over all, a really nice place to stay for our family vacation.
Thanks for the feedback. Since then, we checked and agreed that the bed could use an upgrade and we did just exactly that. Should be much more comfortable now.

“A gem of a discovery. Wonderful condominium a home away from ho”
Left on 03/08/2014 for a stay in October 2013 | A FlipKey verified reviewerReviewed Mar 8, 2014Stayed Oct 2013
I have stayed in this condo twice. Once in the middle of the summer when the fishing was incredible right from the back deck! This condo is well appointed modern and very clean. But most importantly it is tucked away in the quiet part of the canal area with a back deck straight out of the living room that has a magnificent view of the canal. It is super relaxing and enjoyable.
The second time I stayed at this condo was in the fall, and the fishing was still good, but the hustle and bustle of the summer had quieted down leaving a serene and very relaxing atmosphere.I went with my wife and daughter and everyone loved the place. At any price this was a great place to stay in Corpus and I would return without hesitation.

Our family has taken many beach trips and this has been the best! We arrived to find an amazing home environment that welcomed us. Through my own experience, I worried about the amenities that could accommodate family meals. We were pleased to find a fully accommodated kitchen that would fit all of our needs! Between the grill provided and the updated kitchen, we cooked our meals for a family of 8 easily. We ventured on the short trip to the fabulous public beach and had an amazing time in the summer sun! My worry was being able to clean everyone up and the availability of 3 bathrooms solved this problem. The children were bathed and we were grilling on the amazing patio quickly! The patio proved to be the favorite spot for everyone! We enjoyed dinner while watching the sunset and watching the views from our vantage point. Although we weren't in our own environment, it was pure joy to see our entire family at ease in this welcoming home! This condo offers a bit of home combined with the excitement of a vacation experience! We will defiantly be returning and the entire family is looking forward to staying in this home-away-from home condo! I would recommend this condo for any family/business trip!!!

Our first stay at here was the month of January 2012, but as soon as we got home we reserved again. The unit is fantastic, elegantly comfortable, fully stocked, and clean as a whistle. The island is also fantastic. We had a great time fishing and relaxing in the sun. Great place to stay with very clean facilities. It was the best vacation experience we have ever had. Way better than staying in a hotel any day! The condo was clean and organized with beautiful decorations. We still cannot believe we received such quality for such a great price.

This place was fantastic! I went with 4 buddies and we played cards, fished and all in all had a blast. Hop in the car and inside of 10 minutes there are miles and miles of beautiful Gulf shoreline! We cooked what we caught with the facilities provided and a couple of times we enjoyed the close night life! Highly recommend this Condo!
