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 townhome in 2011

Why Cathy Bethay chose Corpus Christi

We love this townhouse because it is spacious and has a great common gathering area. The outdoor patio/breezeway also adds lots of space for families with children or just quiet relaxation for adults.

What makes this townhome unique

Unit is all on one level for easy access. Two designated parking spots right in front of the townhouse. Walking distance to Schlitterbahn water park.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My family and I rented Cathy's beautiful cabana for a weekend had a wonderful time. The house was perfect for our family of six. It was clean in every respect with a well-appointed kitchen. We cooked all of our meals during our stay, which made our experience in Corpus Christie a great time to bond with family. Cathy also emailed a list of activities and places to eat for us to review before our arrival. Everything went perfectly! In addition to the house being wonderful, it is located with easy access to the beach and grocery store. I would highly recommend Cathy's place to anyone visiting the area.

Overall a Nice Place

  • 3 of 5

We enjoyed our time during our stay. Like I said in the title, overall it is a nice place. Cathy is very responsive to emails and easy to work with. The WiFi was slow. Not a big deal if you are on vacation, but it was hard to get some things done for the office or my son to play Xbox. We thought there was a grill from reading prior guest reviews, but it was broken. Cathy was great and got us a replacement, which was very much appreciated. Note that it is an electric grill, so if you are coming from a cold climate and looking forward to grilling out on charcoal not going to happen. Totally understand the reason for this, but still a bummer. The only complaint and the reason for the 3 stars vs 5 stars was the trash. It was really gross. The bin was full and the smell was horrible upon our arrival. There was a shipping box left on the patio. We wish housekeeping would have maybe done more to address these issues before we arrived. We know that owner cannot control what guests throw in the bin or the garbage service. However, the garbage bin stunk to high heaven which prevented us from enjoying the really nice patio area due to the wind usually blowing the smell over to the seating area. Finally we moved the bin away from our unit some, but then the neighbor commented on the smell. Since it was not fair to them, we moved it back and just stopped using the patio. Again not the owners fault, but was definitely not what we expected. The owner mentioned that housekeeping would clean and bleach out the bin, which really needs to be done. The pool was great once rental management company turned on the heater. We were often times the only people at the pool. The property is quiet and close to beaches.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your honest feedback. I agree the garbage situation was very frustrating! Many homeowners and the HOA worked on addressing this issue. The city services our garbage and they missed a pick up, then they were a no show for a special pick up. They did come on the next scheduled day during this stay, but they only took part of what had accumulated. We have now resolved the issue with the city and housekeeping was able to bleach out the barrel once it was completely emptied. The city has also changed our fire code and has banned any open flames on our patios due to proximity to structures. This review was the first I had heard about the wifi being slow. Future guests, please contact me during your stay so that I may help troubleshoot any issues sooner than later. As this guest commented, I am willing and available to help you with any concerns, questions, or suggestions.

We loved the cabana and the layout, and location to beaches

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay. The owners are very nice and accommodating. They answered the phone each time we called immediately and answered all our questions. I will say that the pull out couch is nice but it's a little stiff, so if you're used to a soft bed then a memory foam mattress is needed. The only problem we had was after we left, the cleaning crew accused us of having a pet and charged extra for the cleaning service. The owner called me and we talked about it, we did not have a pet, it was clearly stated in the rules that no pets are allowed. Just a suggestion is that you might document with pictures or video the way you leave it just to be safe. After talking to the owner we were not charged the extra amount, this not a blame on the owner at all. This is just information about what happened with the cleaning crew after left and what the cleaning crew accused us of. Otherwise the stay was excellent and the cabana is great. Very quiet and private behind the gate. I would book this place again if we return to Corpus Christi.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. I appreciate that we have been able to openly communicate. For future guests, I do want to clarify that I do allow pets. However, they must be pre-approved as I do have restrictions and limitations. In addition, I do have a pet fee which helps cover extra cleaning fees and normal wear and tear.

We loved it !!

  • 5 of 5

We will definitely be coming back, we loved all the extra touches that are provided from the grill to the most comfortable bed I've slept in compared to any other place we've stayed at. We come to the coast 2 to 3 times a year this is the place to stay.
