About Cynthia Garcia

We have lived in the coastal bend all our lives and are newly retired. We've always loved fishing and the beach in general but now with 4 grandsons we decided we needed something closer to it all.

Very nice condo, fantastic owner, and very near the beach!

  • 5 of 5

Really, my husband, mom and I couldn't say enough nice things about the condo! From the pretty floors to the layout, it was perfect for our group. The owner, Cynthia, is pleasant, responsive, and accommodating! All my communication with her was before and after our stay. The condo was perfect, her instructions for check in and check out were clear, and checkout instructions were minimal and easy to accomplish with cleaning deposit refunded a few days later. The condo comes with a pool key to the community pool. It's a lovely little setup. When we checked in on Thursday, the place was so quite and nice. It did get busier, as expected on Friday evening, Saturday, and everyone was leaving by Sunday. There is a clothes washer and drier, dishwasher, stove/oven, microwave, toaster, radio, fridge/freezer, coffee maker, glasses, utensils, and most importantly a nice coffee maker (I left some extra coffee filters). All were nice, new, and in good repair. The place is nicely decorated. And it is literally just a block or two to the Gulf of Mexico from the door of the condo! Parking is convenient and close. You can walk to the beach or you can drive onto the beach. During certain hours, i noticed there were people there charging cars $12 or $13 for parking. We got there before they were there and didn't have to pay. There is a pedestrian only beach located next door if you don't want cars going by, but it was fun and safe for the kids to play between our vehicles and the beach. I highly recommend renting from these owners. We have stayed in cabins and other VRBOs and the check out lists can get pretty exasperating. They just ask a few relatively simple things be done and a text letting them know you're gone. The twin beds have thick comfy mattress toppers on them. The king bed is insanely comfortable! It's such a good sleeping bed. The little kids didn't mind the couch pull out at all! They loved it, actually! I totally miss the area and the proximity to the beach. We will absolutely go back sometime soon to enjoy the beach with our kiddos! Oh, also, give Hurricane Alley a chance if you have smaller kids. We heard Schlitterbahn on North Padre was still under construction as of July, 2016, and you'd get more bang for your buck at Hurricane Alley- we had a blast, kids aged 5, 7, and 12! Thank you, Cynthia, for the fun times and memories!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind words. I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay and hope you made lots of memories. We try to be available to our guests before and during their stay and to make the check-in, checkout is an easy process. The keyless lock and walk in shower are also favorites along with the other amenities. Again thank you as so many travelers count on reviews from past guests to make their choice in accommodations.

We thoroughly enjoyed the condo. We had everything we needed and the short drive to Whitecap Beach was very easy.

My family and I have stayed in Ms. Cynthia's condo a handful of times in the past year. This is our home away from home! I love that she has all the extras that our family may need (or might've forgotten)like beach toys, chairs, towels or detergent to wash. If there's ever a problem, she is readily available to handle the situation. There are many beautiful places in the island to stay, but this location is by far, my favorite! Communicating with Cynthia feels like talking to an old friend and that's what keeps me coming back! See you soon, Miss!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind words and repeated business. We want to provide the things our guests will enjoy but have no use for once they get home (boogie boards, beach toys, beach chairs, beach towels etc.). I look forward to hearing from you in the future. Thanks again.

Enjoyed our stay!

This was our families' second time staying at this condo. We appreciated all the amenities and features. The high chair was well put to use. Beach was within walking distance. Stores and eateries are close by. When it was time to leave our 3 year old granddaughter asked if we could stay longer! We will return. Thank you!

  • 4 of 5

we have stayed here 3 times and overall am happy I think the cleaning could be done better the lamps, walls, baseboards, etc. could be cleaned better. very dusty. bugs hanging in the dust behind the tv and corners. there were some stickers stuck in the carpet. kitchen utensils were not completely clean, wrong filters for the coffee pot. could have used a full bottle of detergent and more than 3 dishwasher tablets and a few more kitchen towels ( we clean a lot). overall not bad, I don't need fancy where I stay, I just prefer cleaned well.
