Are you dreaming of a tropical getaway? Look no further than this stunning Condo/Hotel Penthouse, where you can experience all the excitement of a cruise without the pesky seasickness. This luxurious 6th floor Penthouse boasts incredible island excursions that will have you living your best life. Picture yourself horseback riding on the beach at sunset, indulging in a beach bonfire with a delicious shrimp boil, playing golf or miniature golf, and feeling the rush of water slides. For the adventure seekers, enjoy deep sea and bay fishing, parasailing, and even skydiving. For a more relaxed day, take a beach-cart or 3 or 4-wheeler beach ride, or learn to windsurf with lessons.

But the excitement doesn't stop there. You'll stay in a beautifully remodeled Penthouse with panoramic views of the stunning Texas Gulf. No sand dunes will block your breathtaking views of the mile long seawall and boardwalk. The floor to ceiling windows in the living area and master bedroom will leave you in awe from sunrise to sunset, and the balcony offers a perfect spot to enjoy the sea breeze.

Our luxurious Condotel features two bedrooms, two full bathrooms, and a partition wall that moves away during the day to open up the living area to all those great window views. The master bedroom features a secret mural behind the partition wall, and the master bathroom boasts a large walk-in shower with the strongest water pressure you can imagine, with almost endless hot water. The condo sleeps six comfortably, with two king size beds and a queen sleeper sofa.

Step outside and be transported to a tropical paradise in the beautifully landscaped courtyard, surrounded by lush greenery and vibrant flowers. You can play Pickleball, then take a dip in the heated pool or soak in the Jacuzzi, surrounded by palm trees swaying in the gentle sea breeze. The fragrance of exotic blooms fills the air as tropical birds flit about, adding to the serene ambiance. This outdoor oasis is the perfect place to relax and recharge, surrounded by the beauty and tranquility of nature. Then just walk just a few steps to the ocean for a day of sun and surf. There's even a jetty system for Packery Channel just a short walk away, and beachgoers can drive and park their car right on the beach. Plus, the city of Corpus Christi maintains the beach year-round, even allowing for campfires right on the sand - bring the marshmallows!

Don't miss out on the opportunity to experience the most beautiful and manicured beach in Texas. Book your stay in this Five Starfish Penthouse today and indulge in the ultimate tropical vacation experience.

We absolutely loved our stay and will be sure to return. The condo was beautiful and exactly as pictured. Note for those with young children, cars and trucks drive quite fast on the beach out front. Be very conscious of that throughout your stay.

This place is amazing! Right off the beach & amazing views. Unfortunately when we went, the weather was cold. We were still able to walk the beach but what really saved the trip was the heated pool! Mark was super nice & friendly and was able to get us checked in early. The room was nice & clean and aesthetically pleasing. We plan to stay for a full week in the summer!

What a great view! Floor to ceiling windows and very close to the shoreline. Property was tastefully remodeled with all the right touches. Super clean which we appreciated. Conveniently located for quick trips to dtown Corpus or to Port Aransas. Also close to Padre Island National Seashore if you like birds. We were able to see many firsts such as Sandhill cranes, Peregrine Falcons, Roseate spoonbills, Crested Caracaras to name a few. We will definitely be coming back!

Do NOT underestimate this hidden gem! Most people will judge the age of the exterior of the facility itself. But once you step through the door to this amazing penthouse, it’s like entering another world!
1st off, we were welcomed by cold water bottles and juice in the refrigerator and snacks to munch on. This penthouse has everything and then some! High end kitchen appliances, beautiful granite countertops, colorful backsplash and huge sink! Not to mention everything you need on hand to prepare meals for your family or guests.
The color scheme and decor of the entire penthouse is so beachy! The decorator for this penthouse has fantastic taste! 2 king size beds and the sofa provide plenty of room for 6 people. The view from the balcony from the 6th floor penthouse is beyond words. You get a full view of beautiful Gulf of Mexico and sandy beach!
Easy access from the facility to the beach below and a pool to relax by.
I can’t say enough to describe this wonderful beach vacation penthouse. It’s definitely something you must see for yourself and the owner is fantastic with communicating with you.
I highly recommend the Five Starfish Penthouse on the Gulf! I can’t wait until we can stay again!

"Loved it!"

by Karen S.


The whole process was easy. They called to make sure we knew how to get there & how to check in. The place was clean & so comfortable. The view was gorgeous! Loved it!
The elevator on the property is a bit old & slow but we would stay here again. We loved it!

"Great Little Getaway"

by Brent B.


Love the place so much we are considering buying a place in that location.


by Danielle C.


This location was perfect for two single moms and our kids! It was safe, clean, and family-oriented. Our kids got to chatter excitedly and exclaim over the gorgeous view, the sound of the waves, and the seagulls flying above while my friend and I got everyone changed and gathered our things. The beachfront was as close as a quick ride down the elevator and a few steps out the gate! There was even a lifeguard station right in front of the building, which definitely made two single mommas feel much more secure about our children’s safety. And then waking up to the sunrise beaming through the wall of windows and onto our children as they began stirring for the day . . . well, not much could be better than that!

This property was absolutely perfect. We did not want to leave. The condo property is well managed, manicured and very clean. Loved the pool. We spent mornings and evenings on the balcony with a cool breeze after walking the beach. The beach is very clean which was more than expected. The condo is extremely comfortable, well stocked for picking up groceries and staying in and has a desk if you needed to get some work in but hopefully not

Thanks so much Mark! We had such a wonderful time! The house was absolutely gorgeous, super clean, and had a stellar view of the ocean. The snacks were a nice touch that really made you feel welcome. We really enjoyed our stay and can’t wait to come back! The only hiccup we had was the elevators were down the majority of our stay which required us to walk up and down six flights of stairs. That may not be an issue for most people but as a person with a disability it was quite the struggle. I am aware that is not the fault of the owner of the unit and an issue with the main complex but wanted to share so others are aware, especially those with mobility issues, that may be an issue. We still strongly recommend this stay and plan to come as soon as possible!

We absolutely loved this stay! I had a few questions prior and Mark was excellent at replying quickly and helping us navigate. I viewed many reviews for couples enjoying their stay, so I wanted to add that we stayed with our children and it was just as great! The facility is SO CLEAN!! Everyone was very nice. The kids enjoyed the pool, beach, and local attractions.

This condo was certainly worth the trip from Duluth, MN!

If you want to experience total relax, peacefulness, and enjoy beauty you need to stay at Mark's rental, the place is upgraded to the smallest detail, is right on the beach, you will enjoy amazing sunrises and sunsets just looking at the floor to ceiling windows, and feel the breeze at the balcony, Mark is very welcoming and quick to respond and ensure you have a pleasant stay, look forward to the next trip and stay.

Can’t beat the location/view. Heated pool was great, direct access to the beach in about six steps, and condo itself was updated and fresh— but the view from the floor-to-ceiling windows alone was worth the price.

Mark’s penthouse was everything and more… it was absolutely lovely.
And Mark was a phenomenal host! He personally went prior to my arrival to ensure the unit was just perfect for me from the moment I walked through the door i immediately noticed all the extra special touches that had been left for me..Little things that went above and beyond to make it special.. The view from the balcony was beautiful and even from inside! Oh! And the view is the very clean BEACH- YOU ARE RIGHT ON THE BEACH- Not kinda see the beach, no no from one edge to the other ALL YOU SEE IS ENDLESS BEACH 🙂
With the floor to ceiling windows, you couldn’t escape the beautiful view (but each window/balcony door had very high quality blinds to block the sun or light when you wanted a darker setting for sleeping.. Giving you any option you wanted 🙂 the Full chef kitchen was GREAT, I cooked every meal which was lovely, you will have everything you need at Mark’s Penthouse and I guarantee you will be planning your next trip to return before you leave!
Thanks again Mark!
Many many blessings

"Fabulous in every way!"

I can’t even begin to say enough fabulous things about this rental & the owner. The view is absolutely amazing. The condo itself was clean & beautiful inside. The pool, hot tub etc was fabulous too. We always felt extremely safe & comfortable at the complex & the area. The owner is fantastic with communicating & making sure your stay is wonderful. We would definitely stay here again. It was myself, my husband & our two kids. It worked perfectly for us. We rented a golf cart down the road, had it in the parking lot over night & it was completely safe the entire time. The young man that helped us at check in was so sweet & went out of his way to help us when the gas stations were out of beach parking passes.. Again, I can’t even say enough about how wonderful our stay here was. We stayed at a few different VRBO rentals on our trip throughout Texas & this was by far our best rental!

"Absolutely perfect!"

by Suzanne K.


This property was just perfect for what we were looking for! It had the best views of the Gulf we've ever seen - truly right on the water with immediate beach access. Everything looked and felt very clean, which set our minds at ease as soon as we walked in the door. We were greeted with cold water bottles in the fridge and lovely chocolate starfish in the kitchen, which made us feel instantly welcomed and at home. The beds were super comfortable with plenty of pillows and linens, the showers and bathrooms were great, and there was everything we could've needed in the kitchen with plenty of supplies throughout the house. The decor was modern and beachy, and the furniture was comfortable and cozy. We loved all of the technology and the desk area since we did have to work a bit from the beach. I was glad that other reviewers had mentioned that the outside of the complex was older looking or I would have been surprised. But the moment you walk in the door of the condo you feel like you're in a 5-Star hotel room with all the comforts and accommodations of home. We'd definitely love to stay here again and highly recommend! Thank you!

Amazing stay. My wife and I stayed as our honeymoon, and it could not have been cleaner. The open floor plan allows the home to feel spacious, there was a well stocked kitchen with cookware and dishes. We were very upset about having to leave. We have stayed in several different condos on different beaches and this was by far the best experience yet. Mark was extremely communicative and reached out several times to see if we need anything. Check in and Check out took ~2 minutes each. Amazing experience and we plan on being back yearly.

The property was exactly as presented in the VRBO listing. It had everything that we needed. The linens did not disappoint. The kitchen had all of the essentials and then some. The owners pay attention to detail and that makes this property especially nice. We’ll be staying here if Padre is on our agenda in the future.

Mark was absolutely great.
The condo was gorgeous.
The sunrise was spectacular and watching the stars at night was breathtaking.
Thank you for our memorable stay.

Wonderful! The view is incredible. The condo was very clean and had everything we needed. The kitchen is very well stocked. Check in/out was super easy. The windows and balcony over the ocean made this condo so special. Mark was very accommodating and super communicative. We will stay here again!

Great sunrise view, well-furnished, very comfortable beds, and very good interaction with the property manager. Good for COVID distancing with outside entrance door from walkway, via stairs or elevator. Right on the beach with sixth floor sunrise view from inside or balcony.

"Best Choice ever!"

by Cheryl S.


Could not say enough good things about our stay. The whole staff was super friendly and Mark was excellent to work with.

Here are somethings we did on our trip.

. Road horses on the beach would highly recommend so much fun and our 6 and 9 year old said it was the best!

.We enjoyed eating at Hardknocks
And Padre Pizza.
Didn’t really care for Boat house food.

We drove to Port Aranas and took a boat out to another Island.

I would definitely stay again! Only thing I would change is laundry in unit but they still had machines they were just downstairs.

This sixth floor cute condo is Impeccably clean and modern. And the balcony is amazing. Comfy barstools, holders for for beverages while you watch the beautiful sunrise with coffee or have a glass of wine with an appetizer in the evening. I always spend time researching properties and reviews before I book and I was pleased in every way with our stay here!

From the outside, the condo building looks dated. Inside this particular property, the interior is very modern and comfortable.

"Highly recommended!!"

by Desiree H.


We enjoyed our stay very much at the five star fish penthouse on North Beach in Corpus Christi. The place was clean, the cabinets were well stocked with dishes etc., And the view is absolutely impeccable. Mark was a splendid host as well. He is very friendly, knowledgeable and an all around great guy!

"Perfect Padre Getaway"

by David W.


We normally stay in Port A but decided to give this location a try based on the pictures. We were not disappointed!

Though the overall property is older (like most beachfront in the area), this condo is awesome. What you see is exactly what you get—great decor, well-appointed with everything you need to cook. The beach view is the best around. The property was clean, quiet, and family-friendly, with a nice pool area.

Mark is great to work with and will answer any questions about the property and the general area. He and his wife did a great job on their remodel. We will certainly return!

"Summer Getaway"

by Alisa H.


Great property and location. Mark was a great host and property manager. Really appreciated the little things like extra towels since we were staying a week vs just a couple of days. The shampoo and conditioner available in the bathrooms was a nice, unexpected touch and really benefitted our youngest who forgot his at home.

Lovely condo in an older building. Everything in good, clean, working order. Great views, and steps away from the sea wall and beach. Highly recommend.

"Best views and easy access to beach"

by Ranjith Kumar C.


Very clean interiors. We were initially surprised to see the building outside which looked old but inside the unit it’s very clean looks exactly the way it showed in pictures. Mark was very helpful and gave me a courtesy call to let me know about what’s available in the unit and around the town. Will definitely look to revisit this place on our next vacation.


by Isaiah A


The place was perfect. I only stayed a short time but we enjoyed it very much. The view was beautiful. You are away from from most of the tourists so it’s not over crowded. This is definitely a great place to stay in North Padre Island. You won’t regret staying here!

"Perfect Getaway"

by Rene F.


This was the perfect place to take in the ocean views as well as being close to town and great restaurants. Mark's place was so clean and adorable and had the most comfortable beds! Looks exactly like the pictures, only the view is EVEN BETTER!

Agreeing with others, this place had no surprises whatsoever. What you see in the pictures is what you really get ! It was really beautiful and waking up to the sunrise with your bed right by the open back wall of windows and sitting right on the beach or the balcony when the sunsets over the beach is So Pretty & Relaxing. Your literally there, down the elevator- out the back condo gates and your on the beach! This place had guest towels at the pool to use along with 6 guest gas grills warmed and ready to use An elevator up & down incase stairs are NOT an option. The kitchen had nicely organized pots, pans, cooking utensils, silverware, plates, cups, salt, pepper, a waffle maker, coffee maker, toaster, a home phone, smart tvs to log on to your account of HULU / NETFLIX or etc if you decided, ice-maker on fridge, microwave & clean fridge! Beds were super comfy! The LED strip of colorful lights above also made it fun! Along with a beautifully painted mural on the wall for photographs. Overall was definitely worth it. Me and My Family very much enjoyed our stay !

The frustrating part about renting vacation condos is that pictures only show the best parts of the stay and you are almost always let down when you arrive. Nothing deceiving about this condo.

It appears that this owner has recently remodeled this condo and spared no expenses to make it look like a home, apposed to a rental property. From the high end beach themed decor, to the beautiful wood look tile flooring, to the comfortable beds, to the fully stocked kitchen, it is, as described and more.

You cannot beat this location. The condo literally sits less than 100 feet from the beach with a private access door to the boardwalk/beach. No sand dunes to walk over or long walks to get to the beach. You’re right there! The island has everything you need without having to go back over the JFK Causeway. The view from the balcony is phenomenal and the entire back wall is floor to ceiling windows to maximize this million dollar view.

Check in/out took less than a minute and the staff was very courteous. Communication with the owner was very easy and prompt. Any questions I had were answered within minutes.

Thanks Mark, we will be staying again!

We have stayed at many Airbnb's in the last few years and Mark's place has surpassed every one of them! We were looking for a place to escape from the gloom of the Northwest for a few days to a sunny warm beach, and this was just perfect!

This condo is on the top floor of a very well maintained complex, right on the beach! It's hard to adequately describe the breathtaking view! The moment you step inside, you are hit with the view from floor to ceiling windows in the living room and bedroom, which is nothing less than spectacular. The weather was gorgeous, and we spent many hours sitting on the outside balcony soaking in sunshine, warmth and the sights and sounds of the beach.

The condo itself is just perfect! The decor is a wonderful beach theme, but not overdone. It's comfortable, yet elegant. The appliances are new, as is everything in the condo. We lacked for nothing! The beds are comfortable, and our party of 3 appreciated the 2 lovely bathrooms.

Check in was easy with the friendly folks at the front desk, who answered any questions we had. Mark provides a guidebook with lots of information, including suggestions for local restaurants.

Mark, himself, is lovely to work with. He answers messages quickly and was just great to us! We would stay in one of his other places in a heartbeat!

I can't say enough good things about our stay here.... We've escaped this time of year to Hawaii and to So California many times, but this condo and its location was just as good, if not better, than many of those experiences! I'm sure next year it will be high on our list for return. If you are looking for a beachside retreat on Padre Island, stop looking right now and snap this condo up! You will not be disappointed!!

Thanks for hosting us Mark. We loved your place. Everything in your condo was pristine , beautiful and thoughtful. The view was mind blowing. This is worth every penny we spent. Each time I needed something like a strainer or laundry bag - it was just there. I love it and also appreciate the love and care that you Must have taken to put together such a wonderful place.
