About Cathy Bethay

We fell in love with this area while living in San Antonio. Recently work has taken us to Atlanta, but this is still "our beach." Our 3 children love the beach, fishing, and exploring. My husband and I enjoy escaping to the island with our family and creating fun memories with our children.

Cathy Bethay purchased this condo in 2011

Why Cathy Bethay chose Texas Gulf Coast

This condo is located in a very quiet section of the Beach Club and overlooks the saltwater pond. The balcony has warm morning sun and a glimpse of the gulf. Our children have lots of fun at the pond and we can keep our eyes on them from the condo or from the picnic area.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"I think your condo is the best in the complex because of

Privacy, it views open space and the pond, and the birds

joining one for breakfast on the deck."

Great place in a great place in a great place...

  • 5 of 5

North Padre Island is a great place: close to Corpus Christi. the Gulf of Mexico, and the Padre Island National Seashore. Beach Club is close to Whitecap Beach, Packery Channel, Padre Balli Park, and Bob Hall Pier with a heated pool, hot tub, and athletic facility. Being in Building 3 has its advantages: there is a view of the pond and Gulf, the breeze is steady, and when the cold north wind blows, the building serves as a block allowing for sitting outside in the warm sun with its southern exposure. A grilling area/pavilion is below the unit, making cooking out a convenient practice: nothing like fresh seafood from Paul's Seafood or steaks from Moody's on the grill. Cathy is a very professional owner who is easy to reach, quick to reply, and takes care of her property: a very nicely decorated condo that is well stocked with the essentials for a comfortable stay. We loved staying there and are planning on returning next year.

Perfect for a weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

Close to the beach and super cute. Property is in a great location in the complex and has a great view of the pond on site. Close enough to the beach if you want to walk, just be ready for the sand spurs! There is much to do and some WONDERFUL places to eat close by as well as a great pizza place if you feel like being a homebody. I wasn't sure what to expect as far as "supplies" in the kitchen but you're fully capable of making coffee without bringing anything along and there are a few kitchen staples such as cooking oil, flour, sugar, etc. Bring ice! Overall we had a great time and enjoyed coming "home" rather than going to a room. Communication with the owner is quick and she's super amazing and accomodating. You feel like you're staying at a friend's place for the weekend and not a rental. Highly recommend.

A nice stay but some things need to be improved

  • 3 of 5

We liked our stay! We loved the beach toys and the use of the beach towels. Very helpful!! The furniture was nice and well taken care of and the kids really enjoyed the pool! However there were a few things that could be improved upon. The fixtures need to be updated. For example the vents and shower rails were rusty and the doors needed to be painted. It looked unappealing to have nice furniture but have rusty fixtures and paint peeling off doors. The cleanliness was ok or adequate.. I had to wash the dishes again before use. I was scratching food off of some. Probably a rinse aid in the dishwasher would be helpful with some of the cloudiness. Also there is an ant problem that needs to be addressed. Finally the queen bed needs new sheets. They were scratchy and pilled; signs of wear.. Not comfortable with a sun burn..

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your feedback. It is much appreciated. We will replace the sheets, fixtures, and repaint as we frequently do. Please be aware that anything metal or painted easily rusts and peels with the salty air exposure. Compared to my other units, this condo rusts/peels much quicker due to its location and proximity to the water. Items can rust and peel in as little as 3 months. Also, I will have my housekeeping manager check all of the kitchenware for cleanliness and do an extra pest control measure. I encourage guests to contact me as soon as possible so that we may address any issues during your stay. Again, thank you for letting me know as my guests are my eyes to keep things addressed.

Will stay again!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for 6 nights with our 3,5, 7 year old children and our dog. Everything was clean and the beds were comfortable. It's a short walk to the beach and it was great not having to bring or buy chairs or sand toys because we were able to use the stuff at the condo. The owner is awesome and very responsive to any questions. I would recommend this place to a friend! We will rent from her again when we come back to the area. Thank you!

Very clean, close to the beach, and wonderful owners!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was very clean and nicely decorated with everything we needed for our family vacation to the beach. Close walk to the beach and close to shopping and dining. It was wonderful that the condo was pet friendly as well and had several grill areas, a nice clubhouse, and pool area. The owners were wonderful and very responsive to any needs!!
