We had the opportunity to spend 10 weeks at this beautiful home in Corpus Christie with our pet, Coco beginning in January through March of 2015. The house is well supplied with appliances, toweling, linen, etc; all one needs to do is move in. We were excited about spending time at the beach together with Coco and was concerned if animals would be welcome. Everyone comes to the beach with their pets to walk on the beautiful sand so pets are certainly more than welcome. The beach is just a 6 minute drive from the house so you can be on the sand and enjoying the beauty in a flash and no need to carry anything far at the beach as you can pull into the beach parking lot and right in front of you are little tables for your use. The neighborhood folks are all so very friendly and in fact, we found that to be true of all Texans. We commented about the friendliness of the community to a neighbor and her response was "you never meet a stranger in Texas" and we found that to be absolutely true. We would do our shopping either at Walmart or HEB and there are some many eating locations, one would have to go out daily in order to hit them all. We are not fishermen but if you are, you have every opportunity to do so; right off the deck if you would like as we would see the fish jumping in the canal and they appeared to be very nice size. Thank you very much for the opportunity to share the use of your beautiful home. It was good not to have to shovel snow as our family and neighbors were doing back home.
