About Chuck & Lisa Sinn

We are the Sinn Family - Chuck, Lisa, Zoe (9), Landon (7), and Hunter (2 months) and we are from San Antonio, Texas. We are so excited to share the blessings of our condo with families from all around the world! Charlie's Cabana (named after Chuck's father) has been the perfect place for us to spend quality time together & create priceless family memories.

Chuck & Lisa Sinn purchased this condo in 2012

Why Chuck & Lisa Sinn chose Corpus Christi

We love Charlie's Cabana because it's a block away from the Gulf of Mexico. It's a fantastic location close to shops, restaurants, & most importantly the beach. We never knew much about North Padre until we came to visit and we then we fell in LOVE. It's sooo beautiful, family friendly, & a lot more affordable than our neighbor Port Aransas. We love that the complex has a beautiful pool, hot tub, 24 hour fitness center, & dry spa. We just renovated the unit with lots of upgrades, not musty smell, professionally decorated, a large kitchen, full washer & dryer, balcony, and it's going to be very close to the brand new Schlitterbahn.

What makes this condo unique

We had our condo professionally decorated so people would feel like this was their home away from home. It's fully equipped to accommodate guests of all ages. We have a pack & play for a baby (you bring the sheets), kids toys, Wii gaming system, Blu-Ray DVD player, standard DVD player, & 3 flat screen TV's, & it's fully furnished with stylish brand new furniture (2012).

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hello Lisa:

We enjoyed the stay at "Charlie's Cabana" immensely!

It was perfect for our little get-away. We only wished we had another

week to spend there. We were familiar with the complex as we had

visited looking for units being sold back in August. The proximity to

everything and the amenities were just what we were looking for. The

condo itself was beautiful and the only problem we had was figuring

out the thermostat.

We plan on making 2-3 trips there each year and when we are ready to

return we will be checking back with you again.

Thanks so much for sharing your place with us!

Loved it, as usual!

  • 5 of 5

I stay in Charlie’s Cabana whenever it is available. The owners are great to deal with and very responsive if there are ever problems, rare! For example, the Keurig coffee maker was not working, texted owners, got an immediate response and fix! Always clean! Very comfortable place to stay.

Clean, well maintained, lots of room within the complex grounds, close parking

  • 5 of 5

Charlie's Cabana provided a nice, relaxing place to stay during our beach trip. It is close to not only the beach, but shops and restaurants. The rental was clean and very comfortable; lots of child friendly additions like pack and play, booster seat and basket of toys made it extra nice. The beds were very comfortable and linens were good quality and very soft. Rental was stocked with plenty of extra pillows, sheets and towels. Kitchen had plenty of plates, bowls, silverware and cookware. Overall good experience renting from Lisa and Chuck. Would have no problem renting from them again.

Great vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

This was my first stay in a homeaway rental and it's was super fun! This property was very modern and fit all of our guests nicely. It had all the utensils we needed for cooking and the beds were pretty comfy! The only thing was I had to purchase more paper towels and toilet paper because we didn't have enough but that's really it. It's really close to whitecap beach and just a drive to a pier were you can fish which was really convienient! Overall it made our vacation complete and I would recommend this place to any friends who asked!

A little piece of heaven on earth.

  • 5 of 5

This was our 4th stay at Charlie's Cabana and like always it is a pleasure to stay here. To me this is a little piece of heaven. My family and I love staying here and will continue to do so. I highly recommend staying here. It is very comfortable and clean and love knowing that the beach is walking distance which give me and my family time to enjoy ourselves on the way to the beach. Again, can't wait for next year really looking forward to staying here again. Lisa Sinn, I thank you for giving us the opportunity to stay in your beautiful condo. Hope we see you next you. Thanks. Mike.
