Worst condo I've ever rented!
Booking was super easy and we thought this condo was in the perfect location. We arrived to find that there was not a key in the lock box as there should have been. I called the owner several times to which he finally called me back 2 hours later! (He stated someone would be by the next day with the key, which nobody ever did) Luckily there was a security office and they were able to get the master key to let us in. When we finally got Into the condo it smelled horrible as if it hadn't been cleaned. We went to use the restroom and there was feces in the toilet with a dark black ring around the bowl! The dishes were dirty, forks and bowls still had food stuck and cups smelled disgusting. We thought having a kitchen would save money from eating out but did not even dare to use any of it. If I can give 0 stars I would. We definitely will NOT be booking this condo again!
As, I read the response, I immediately called the renter and was made aware of matters which make clear that someone has gained access into this condo without my knowledge or consent. I live in Austin Texas and the cleaning lady who lives in Corpus had just been in the unit several days before. It appears the front desk had three keys....instead of the one I left there and that someone had removed the key from the lockbox and made themselves home. We believe it could have been construction individuals who needed access to do interior balcony work.
I take full responsibility and have changed methods of access. Additionally, the cleaning lady will enter each condo IMMEDIATELY prior to each rental and verify that no unallowed individuals have gained access.
I have made arrangements with this renter for a 50% discount if she determines to give my condos a second chance.
I HAVE RENTED FOR YEARS AND NEVER HAD LESS THAN A 4 FROM ANY RENTERS.....
This place was amazing, great location, beach view was beautiful, condo was described exactly how it was on here, kinda small but made it work. :) Perfect for a romantic get away with your loved one. Although we did get some unexpected visitors (made, owner) but apologized tho for the inconvenience :) which was fine. Overall its a great little place will definitely come back :)
Thank you for coming to the Texas Coast and visiting my condo. I
am happy that we helped you enjoy your weekend getaway and that you do recommend my condo. I came from Austin, 450 miles away, to meet and show your unit to an individual giving me a bid for additional remodeling and to allow the maid to bring new linen and bathroom furnishings. Thanks for allowing us entry.
Nice beach condo
The owner was very helpful when we locked ourselves out. Over all experience was very nice. Convenient walk to the beach.
Thanks for your visit and review
First visit to Corpus Christi
As a single parent of 2 children, we love to visit beaches. This was our first trip to Corpus. Our accomodations were accurate with the listing description/pictures. Condo was close to beach and local activities, great view, and easy access to freeway. We did not spend a lot of time in our room. However, the best part was the welcome gift provided by Mr. Taylor of hand sanitizers, etc. as I forgot to pack shampoo and soap. Thank you for your thoughtfulness. The best part of our day after many activities and attractions was the HOT shower. We made new friends, enjoyed the USS LEX, aquarium, museums, and parks. The heated pool was the bomb as it was very breezy on the beach. Must go to restaurants-Miller's BBQ, Capri(best blackened shrimp). The other great thing about the condo was the cable TV and full size refrigerator which maintained a good COLD temperature. We didn't do any cooking this trip but look forward to returning. I almost forgot the lock box was a little challenging but Mr. T responded to my phone call promptly. I would recommend this property to a friend and relative. The only thing I might add is about parking. If you aren't lucky enough to find a covered parking space expect the birds to crap all over your car. Lol :P
Thank you for visiting and the very wonderful review. I am pleased that you and family enjoyed the condo and the Corpus area. While I haven't been able to control the gulls and other birds, I can discount your next visit (done for all repeat visitors) and direct you to local drive thru carwashes. I'm glad my gift was useful for your stay.
I appreciate your taking the time to comment.
The description was accurate regarding the location, layout and amenities. Also, the condo was very clean and we slept well. We had cellphone failure and the owner was not able to get a hold of us so he drove 3 hrs to check on us, now that's wonderful attention. Will hopefully do it again, and I recommend it highly. Unfortunately the month went to fast. Mike and Lorraine
