This very special Condo/Hotel unit is a one of a kind find unique and rare find that we call "THE PELICAN". This 4th floor Condotel unit faces the beach and includes a patio 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 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 PELICAN unit is 2 king size beds and a queen sleeper sofa to comfortably sleep six total. 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 with almost endless hot water. You will enjoy modern appliances and a well equipped kitchen in our Beachfront Island Home.
We have the most beautiful and manicured beach in Texas and it includes a mile long boardwalk, a real Hidden Treasure.

****** ATTENTION******


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 on our beach area. The city of Corpus Christi manicures and maintains this beach year round. Camp fires are encouraged right on the beach. Don't forget the marsh-mellows. We know that this will be one of your best vacations ever. Please ad this to your private collection and I invite you to contact us with any questions that you may have.

EVERYTHING is exactly how Mark described! Our little ones liked walking right out on the beach! The little treats also went a long way! Thank you for accommodating us so quickly!

"Perfect location!"

by Catherine C


I booked this trip very last minute for a teen staying with us who has never been to or seen a beach or ocean. It was an amazing place and such a perfect location! Maybe 100 steps to the waters edge!!!! Absolutely beautiful view of the ocean and the entire wall of the ocean facing wall was all windows. Kitchen had everything needed to cook and there were beach toys in the closet. Easy check in and the property also had a pool and spa and was surrounded by beautifully landscaped tropical plants. Very nice and very well done.

We had a great time at The Pelican. It was clean and comfortable with everything we needed and more. Excellent location. The best communication from Mark. Wonderful webpage to give suggestions on local food and activities and explain every aspect of our stay. Highly recommend this unit for your next trip to Corpus Christi beach. Five well deserved stars. Office staff was also helpful and very friendly.

Minor issues with a light in one of the bedrooms but the location and easy access to the beach made up for it. Would book again!

This place is just wonderful! Absolutely amazing views of the beautiful ocean! Best view you could wake up to in Texas! Super easy access to beautiful and super clean beach! Perfect for couples or families! There’s no way you could go here and be dissatisfied. Pool area is nice as well! Heated pool, kiddie pool, and big hot tub! Fully stocked kitchen. We will absolutely be visiting again!

Clean, great location, incredibly friendly staff. The location and views can’t be beat. Furniture was great. We liked the patio furniture so much, we ordered some from the store in Corpus for our pool area!

The host is kind, thoughtful and things about his guests…example…he provided us extra towels for a longer stay. The property called us when the unit was ready early indicating we could come anytime instead of waiting until check in time. The owner called after we arrived to ensure we had what we needed and were satisfied. And they had coffee juice and donuts so when the hungry travelers who decided to watch the waves the night before instead of going grocery shopping had something to fuel them before going grocery shopping the next morning!

So if you want a place with excellent staff, thoughtful owners and views that can’t be beat…this is the place for you!

Beautiful condo, well kept and clean. Ideally located on the North Padre Seawall. Heated pool and hot tub available. Ocean facing... beautiful views of the sunrise. Literally step out on to the beach day or night (campfires on the beach)! Thanks for hosting us!

The Pelican has a magnificent full window view of the ocean that is incomparable to any place we’ve stayed. It was beautifully equipped so we enjoyed dinners in watching the surf until nightfall. Hope to return sometime!

Stay at Mark's condo was everything we hoped it would be and more. Excellent communication from Mark about repairs that were taking place at the complex. Despite the repairs on the building, we had a very quite and peaceful stay overlooking the beach and enjoying the spectacular sunrise with our coffee on the balcony every morning. I would definitely recommend booking this Condo.

This place is by far the best place we have ever stayed in, very clean, colorful on the inside, furniture and beds are very confortable. what they provided was enough to be comfortable for a family trip.
The host Mark is very friendly and he makes sure you’re comfortable, he goes above and beyond.
Accesible to the beach and a very clean and beautiful big pool.
Very nice and friendly staff on building, easy check in and check out.
Definitely 5 stars for our experience, I’m sure we will be staying at this place for our next family vacations to Corpus Christi.

The view is exactly as advertised. The access to the beach is so perfect, my son and I made several trips daily to and from the ocean. I don’t remember anything that was embellished in the marketing.

Mark's place is marvelous. Laying in bed with the full wall of windows looking at the beach was awesome. Coffee on the balcony as the beach begins to russle. You are not at the beach, you are on the beach. Cocktails in the evening from the balcony as we watched 4 different beach bon fires was spectacular. Loved the place. Really clean and very hot water in the shower. Thanks Mark! We will be back!

WoW!!! Where to begin? The view? The Beach? The Bonfire/Smores? The Coffee on The Balcony? The Heated Pool? The Friends We Made? The Golf Cart Rides Up & Down The Beach??? We hands down enjoyed our vacation time, we made memories with our family that will never be forgotten. Go, enjoy yourself with b one the relaxing vacations you could possibly have!

"The beds are super comfortable!!"

by Samantha Elledge


The beds are super comfortable!! No back pain after a long night's rest....Mark has definitely earned his Super Host status, and responds quickly to any concerns or questions you have. Thanks again for a tranquil time, we enjoyed ourselves

"The location here is AWESOME!"

by Brie Dexter


The location here is AWESOME! When you first get there, it looks a bit shabby from the outside but the condo has obviously been redone and is really nice. The front bedroom doesn't completely close off from the living room so put your early risers there. The view and ability to go down a few stairs to the beach made up for any issues I can think of and I would 100% book this place again. Waking up and drinking my coffee while watching the waves was exactly what I needed! Awesome communication with host and they do a great job taking care of any problems immediately!

"I scored brownie points"

by Joe Garcia


I scored brownie points with my wife and family on this one! Everything was close and convenient from the walk to the beach to the drive into town. North Padre Island is absolutely beautiful, will definitely stay there again!

"Mark was awesome!"

by Amber Ramirez


Mark was awesome! Quick to respond to my rental request, was a call away if I needed anything and I was able to check in an hour early. Loved the view of the ocean too!

"Beautiful place"

by Christine French


Beautiful place and awesome location if you love waking up and looking at the ocean with an unobstructed view! Host was very quick to respond especially with a very last minute request, I hope to come back again.

"This place was perfect!"

This place was perfect for our weekend getaway to the beach. Right on the water, we enjoyed the sunrise both mornings from the balcony while drinking coffee. The ease of walking from the condo to the beach cannot be beat. Amazing views, beautiful and very clean space. We had…Read more

Response from Mark:
Tatyana and I loved having Amy as our guest. It is almost hard to explain how we are actually right on the beach. Most so called Beachfront homes are rarely truly at the beach. Most have you walking a half mile traversing sand dunes that block the beach view all together. As you noted, it is a simple stroll to the beach. Our beach is manicured daily by the city and features a mile long seawall cement boardwalk. It is truly the perfect Beachfront location. If you find that this home is booked for your next stay, please take the time to contact me about our other two vacation homes there as well. All three boast the best Texas Gulf views available. We also have a four bedroom waterfront condo on a canal just one minute from the beach that we call Paradise.

"This place was AMAZING! Book it! You won’t regret it."

by Shelbi


This place was AMAZING! Book it! You won’t regret it. The view is stunning! Super easy access to the beach. It’s literally perfection! The condo had everything we needed! Mark was so nice and helpful! We will definitely be back!!

Response from Mark:
Thanks Shelbi! Tatyana and I strive to keep our three Beachfront Island Vacation Homes there, sparkling clean and well prepared to give you the vacation memories that you deserve. If you are considering another stay with us and your dates seem to be taken, then please take the time to find our other two Beachfront Island Vacation Homes for your stay with us again. We also have a fourth Island home. It is an incredible four bedroom condo right on the canal with an amazing deck that includes a private pool and hot tub and great fishing right off the deck.

Just what my wife wanted for her birthday. A oceanfront spotless condo with views to die for. From the king bed to the ceramic cutlery this place has it all. Groceries is all you'll ever need at this PERFECT beach getaway. We'll be back!!!

Response from Mark:
LOL Adriana, you are the best. Thank you for your kind words! If your future vacation plan dates are already booked, simply click on Tatyana's and my picture and scroll down to 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 our beach views.

"Would highly recommend"

by Mike Stuart


We stayed here for our anniversary weekend after hours of online research. My wife wanted someplace quiet and clean and I wanted someplace right in the beach. This place had it all. Mark’s communications were excellent and there’s great coffee, bars and restaurants within a few minutes drive. When we go to Corpus again, we will be calling Mark !

"The VIEW ! You won’t be disappointed with this gem."

by Hanna


The VIEW ! You won’t be disappointed with this gem. Pictures don’t do it justice. Easy check-in and if you need anything Mark responses and takes care of your needs immediately. You will need to bring your own toiletries but other than that, the condo is properly maintained.

"Beautiful getaway"

by Christina Cabrera


This condo is by far the best we have stayed in! The view is incredible! My 5 year old son really enjoyed the pool! I will definitely be staying there again!

"Great place in great location"

by Loye Lovell


The beach was right there, the property was clean. We had a problem with the TV, and the property owner was very responsive and helpful.
The only thing that was a little different was the bedroom that shared a tv with the living room, and was separated by a sliding wall/partition. It was space-friendly, but would’ve been a little awkward had we been with another family and needed more privacy. We knew that when we booked it, though, bc the property description explains it all. We would stay there again, for sure.

"Great Condo and Location!"



The condo and property was really clean and the check in process is easy as they have a front desk that is open until 11PM. The location is perfect as the walk to the beach is very easy compared to other properties in the area. The owner leaves an umbrella/chairs and even toys for you to use at the beach which saved us a log of money as we did not need to purchase these items for the trip. The laundry is a bit pricey at $1.75 per wash and dry however, the front desk can give you change if needed. The owner was quick to answer any questions I had and is very helpful. We would definitely stay here again!


by Michael


Mark's communication was great, his condo is clean and well appointed, the views are amazing. HIGHLY RECOMMEND.

by Brittany


Beautiful and clean.

"Amazing view."

by Ariadna


Amazing view. The home was very clean and met all of our needs. We had a great time!

"Wow! The place was immaculate"

by Michael


Wow! The place was immaculate and would fit at least 6! We had 4 adults and 1 toddler staying and the view was spectacular!!! The beach was right at our footsteps. The rooms were great sizes (king) with great bath rooms and kitchen (with all amenities). If you are looking for a special place to stay on you trip to North Padre Island, this is it!

"The perfect beach-side condo!"

by Shalini


The perfect beach-side condo! Breathtaking views from the room, clean, well maintained house, lovely interiors incorporating the local birds and animals into the decor make it the ideal place for a relaxed vacation. Mark was a great host, very responsive, made sure we had everything we needed in the house. We weren't able to see the sun rise due to it being cloudy both days we stayed there but I am sure it is beautiful. Will definitely come back again.
