Property Details

Our Condo is rare find, called the FIFTH FLOOR FLAMINGO". Your Beachfront Home has a huge wrap around balcony with floor to ceiling windows, providing a take-your-breath-away view throughout the house. LIVE JOY!

Yes that's correct, we have over 90 5-STAR REVIEWS total from this website, other websites and our company's website.

This very special Condo/Hotel unit is a one of a kind, unique and rare find that we call "THE FIFTH FLOOR FLAMINGO". This 5th floor Condotel unit faces the beach and includes a huge wrap around "L" shaped balcony to enjoy the panoramic view of the Texas Gulf Coast. Many vacation rentals claim to have a ocean or beach view but few are actually what you expect in a beachfront home. Here and at our two fourth floor units, there are no sand dunes to traverse or block your views of this incredible beach which features a mile long seawall and boardwalk. The floor to ceiling windows for the living area and the Master Bedroom will blow you away from SUNRISE to sunset. This incredible view is backed up with newly remodeled two bedroom two bath unit that is guaranteed to please. Just take the elevator down to the 1st floor and you are actually steps away from the ocean. But wait, that's not all! This luxury Condotel features a beautifully landscaped courtyard to include a huge heated swimming pool and Jacuzzi. Included in THE FLAMINGO unit is 2 king size beds and a queen sleeper sofa to comfortably sleep six. The master bedroom features floor to ceiling windows and a wall that moves away during the day to open up the living area to all those great window views. The master bathroom boasts a huge walk in shower with the strongest water pressure that you can imagine and now with almost endless hot water. You will enjoy modern appliances and a well equipped kitchen in our comfortable vacation home on the Gulf of Mexico. There is a great jetty system for Packery Channel just a short walk away. You can also drive and park your car on the beach, however, there is no camping in our beach area. The city of Corpus Christi manicures and maintains this beach year round. Even camp fires are encouraged right on the beach. Don't forget the marsh-mellows. We know that this will be a vacation that creates memories to relive over and over forever. Please ad this to your private collection and I invite you to contact us with any questions that you may have.

If you’re in doubt as to whether this property is worth it, book this rental now! The property was wonderful, clean, and safe. Excellent access to the beach and wonderful views from the balcony. Mark went above and beyond to make sure it was as easy as possible to stay. 5 Stars

Great service, early check in and promptly available if needed (which we didn't because everything was great). Excellent view and easy access to the beach. Loved the layout, could wakeup to the sunrise and rest during the day in the bedroom. Everything was very clean and had snacks and drinks stocked for arrival. Couldn't have asked for a better place to stay! Will be returning!

Marks condo was amazing. We let mark know we were arriving late and he took the extra time to call me and let me know exactly what to do. It is the perfect location for being on the beach all day, and also being able to take small breaks so you don’t get sunburned. It has everything you need for a vacation. My family and I can’t wait to stay at one of Marks properties again on our next vacation.

Great spot and right on the beach. If you wanted to take you truck onto the beach the entrance point is one block over. Was able to book last minute with no issues and extend a day. The balcony wraps around so you get an even better beach view.

Great Condo, great location, and a great host. We had a flat tire in the parking lot. When Mark found out he tracked us down and helped us get the tire repaired. Definitely above and beyond the call of duty!

Really incredible location right on the beach, amazing views from the wraparound balcony on this corner unit. Clean unit, easy check in, well-kept grounds, and extremely responsive host. Had some issues with the water heater - did not have hot water for part of the stay - but the owner tried to offer creative solutions which were much appreciated. Would absolutely stay here again!

Great place for a get away. We wanted to go to the beach but having a 3 month old baby we’re not allowed too so we did the next best thing. This room makes you feel like you’re on the beach. While the baby’s asleep on the bed. Totally worth every cent. Mark also has it 100% complete with all the dishes we needed for our stay. He is also very responsive. Answering all questions and concerns. Thank you & your wife. Merry Christmas.

Mark was a great host. He contacted me before I got there and gave a courtesy text to make sure everything was up to par. The condo is very nice. It has been remodeled and had everything we needed. The porch is great for enjoying the sunrise and having coffee. I wish we could have stayed longer but we will be back!

A truly glorious view from the wrap-around balcony! We really loved just strolling right onto the beach and then, tired from swimming, sitting on the balcony watching the waves and birds. The full moon shining on the water our last few nights was breathtaking.

The apartment is sparkling clean, well equipped, comfortable, and quiet. The complex was very busy when we were visiting but this apartment is on the corner and has excellent storm windows, so we were not disturbed by noise at all. Many thanks to Mark for his thoughtfulness and ready availability. We've stayed in a number of AirBnB apartments and Mark really stands out for superb, friendly hosting.

Mark was an amazing host! Communication was superb and his condo was the best one I have ever been to in the Corpus area. Although the outside look of the condos are a little dated, the inside and views of this condo will blow you away! Thanks again Mark! We look forward to coming back!!l

Very comfortable for our family of 4 adults. If you like a place with a view, then this is the place to take it all in. Non-stop enjoyment of the ocean. After spending time on the beach, a nice shower at the condo, and then more ocean from the comfort of the wrap around balcony with ample seating. You can choose to avoid the sandy mess if you like and still be entertained by the costal waves. Beautiful sunrise. Take a walk toward the jetty/pier at sunset, and prepare to be mesmerized!

Loved having direct access to the beach and pool. The condo had two queen beds and a pull out sofa. Plenty of room for 4-6 people. The balcony also had a great view of the ocean! Definitely would stay here again.

"Airbnb Review #749171498 #104123"

by Review from Airbnb Guest #104123


Favorite thing about this place is the views. Fresh air out on the balcony made it all worth it. Loved waking up to the ocean just by opening my eyes in bed. The place was clean. The building is a little outdated but it’s the classic condo feel, which I can appreciate.
Overall I had a great time unwinding and slowing down. Definitely would be back.

A very pleasant stay at a comfortable place with an amazing view. Be sure to set you at alarm to see the sunrise. From the front door to the ocean in 3 minutes flat! The host is proactive, responsive and helpful.

Amazing place! Gorgeous view. It was everything we were looking for! Mark was so fast in response. Loved waking up to a beautiful beach! Very secure area parking lot is always being supervised and security is always around to keep the Airbnb areas secure. Although we were on the 5th floor we had no issues with noise on upper level above nor next to us always a nice a relaxing space from start of trip to finish. Definitely will book again! HOPEFULLY SOON!

Amazing view and great beach!

"Prepare to enjoy yourself fully at this place."

by Genny


Prepare to enjoy yourself fully at this place. Everything about this condo is top notch - wonderful decor, amazing views from the wall of windows and the location can't be beat. Mark communicated quickly and effectively. The "Welcome Book" emailed to us was a nice touch. Very informative and easy to use. We would definitely stay here again.

Response from Mark:
Thanks Genny! If your future vacation plan dates are already booked, simply view all four of our Island Vacation Homes. We have named and themed each home differently with unique decor that fits each homes name. We have our first home called THE SEAHORSE with great the amazing wrap around balcony and sweet seahorse decor. Then we have THE PELICAN where you will see daily fly by's of groups of real pelicans and pelican decor to boot. Then there is our newest sister home that we call the FIFTH FLOOR FLAMINGO with views and decor that will leave you breathless. We even have a LIVE BEACH CAM of your beach views.

This property is awesome! It’s was very clean and comfortable. The view through the floor to ceiling windows gives you a panoramic view of the beach and ocean. It was beautiful to wake up to. The beach is well maintained. It was great to be able drive your vehicle on the beach with all your stuff for the day but also be able to walk back to your room if you needed to. Ice is available on premises for $3.00 so you can refill your coolers easily. We will be back!!
