My husband and I moved to the country, next to Lake Corpus Christi, in 2007 to raise alpacas. Our farm is called Gulf Breeze Alpaca Ranch (GBAR) and is home to 37 alpacas, 4 sheep, a handful of heritage turkeys, chickens, an angora rabbit, a parrot, 5 Livestock Guardian Dogs (Great Pyrenese) a Border Collie, a Jack Russell, a Terrier Mix, a Chihuahua, 2 cats and a family of 4 humans! We built a fiber arts studio/office/shopon part of the property (31 acres) and I enjoy working with my alpaca and sheep fiber. I prepare most of my fiber myself, from shearing it off the animal to washing, carding and then spinning it into yarn. We have started giving school tours now.

Lyn Christoph purchased this house in 2000

This house has been in my family since it was built in 1956. It holds a lot of memories! When my husband and I decided to move to the country I couldn't bring myself to part with it so I listed it on VRBO and started renting it to vacationing families. I took it off the listing so that my daughter could stay there for a while.

It's been nearly 2 years now and I'm happy to open the house once again to families looking for a safe home away from home.

There are so many things you can do from this location. The Gulf of Mexico is 20 miles to the South, while the Aranasas Wildlife Refuge is about 45 miles to the north, as is the city of Rockport, a hub for artists! Lake Corpus Christi (our stomping grounds) is 45 miles to the northwest.

Dolphin House, as we call it, is located in one of the city's most desirable, established neighborhoods in what is called the 'central corridor' of the city. It is close to shopping centers, restaurants, hospitals and the downtown and Marina areas.

We have a fig vine that has been growing along the fences behind us and along side of us for so many years that none of our neighbors wants to be the one that cuts it! It provides the most wonderfully wild and private area to sunbathe and swim in our pool. The house is located in the middle of the street, which curves slightly just in front of the house. The streed is wide, and while most of the neighbors park in their driveways, the street is wide enough to park on both sides and still have room for cars to pass between.

The bayfront (Corpus Christi Bay) is only 3 blocks from the house and is a popular route for walkers and bikers, as is Center Street, that runs along the center of the addition. There is a lovely shopping center at the end of Center Drive with a restaurant where many of our neighbors can be seen dining.

WEDDING CENTRAL

  • 5 of 5
We used to live in Corpus Christi and came back for our daughter's wedding. We wanted to be in town. Couldn't believe we were so blessed to find the Dolphin House! Part of the family stayed here...but it was also the meeting place for pre-activities. It was so wonderfully cozy and homey. So nice to come back to at the end of the day, relax and get a great night's sleep! Beautifully decorated...the bride and her girls got dressed here. So hoping we can make a return trip to CC and stay at the Dolphin House!

WONDERFUL VACATION HOME!!

  • 5 of 5
When we arrived at the home we were immediately in awe as the home was very welcoming and felt so comfortable right away with the lamps on throughout the home in each room. We had our family of 8 and everyone felt so comfortable as the home has so much space for everyone to relax from the comfortable sofas, recliners and beds. We were able to BBQ on the grill and enjoyed the private swimming pool. We also love that we were able to cook our meals in a fully equipped kitchen and it felt just like home. We will definitley go back and rent this property again. The neighborhood was so peaceful and the neighbors were so quiet I definitley felt safe there the whole weekend. Thank You so much for allowing us to stay in your home!!!

WE STAYED A MONTH AT THE DOLPHIN HOUSE!

  • 5 of 5
We spent a month at the Dolphin house in June/July 2013. The owners were terrific to work with (and were non-intrusive) and gave us a fair rate for the time we spent there. The house was clean, the rooms are large and comfy, and we really enjoyed the television and wi-fi service. The house is in a nice, older neighborhood just three blocks from Corpus Christi Bay, with a grocery store, Walmart and other necessities close by. The neighborhood had a "safe" feel to it and the neighbors we met were very nice. We also very much enjoyed the pool, which is clean and well-maintained. The back yard is very private.

The air-conditioning worked very well and provided welcome relief from the hot summer days. Relatively new washer/dryer also worked well. Furniture was comfortable, both in the bedrooms and the living areas. All in all, a very nice place to spend the month.

Owner's Response: We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay. You can't beat the location for being a spring-board to the many activities there are to enjoy in the area. For families it really does provide that home-away-from home feel. We are pleased that we are able to share it with others.
