A few steps down the sidewalk you will run right into park with rolling hills where you can play frisbee golf, walk and if you have children they can swing on the swings and run free. The house is great for families as well as corporate executives that may need a quiet home away from home environment to work in.

About Rosie

My husband and I love homes and we love vacations. We rarely stay at a hotel and we have rented vacation rentals for 15 yrs of our married lives with our children.

Why Rosie chose Bay Area

We bought this property for its spaciousness but yet cozy cottage feel

What makes this house unique

Everyone can enjoy themselves together and it's close to everything you may need. It's also close to all of the attractions.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Awesome Home!!,

Our stay at this vacation home was awesome! We were really impressed with the home, we had plenty of room and were very comfortable. We would definitely reccommend this home to anyone going to Corpus. We were very satisfied and would like to return in the future. The house was gorgeous and it was really nice to be able to cook instead of eating out everyday. We had everything we needed!!

Very Clean, comfortable, and good location

  • 3 of 5

Rosie was very easy to communicate with and very friendly. The house is on the corner of a busy street, but that really didn't seem to make much difference. The house was very clean if not a bit worn. Its listed as 4 bedrooms, but the one bedroom with twin beds is actually a closed in porch. Fine for kids, but not so much for adults.

Being my first time at a VRBO, I guess I expected a few more amenities like little shower soaps and little shampoos. Maybe even a hairdryer. Now, I know.

While it worked well for our purposes, I don't know if I would stay there again.

Good, a few complaints

  • 3 of 5

The house was beautiful and very large. The beds were comfortable and the house was clean. However some of the amenities listed were not there. There was no sleep number bed and the kitchen did not have as much as expected like a toaster and some other tools. We enjoyed staying in the house but with our large group it was hard to cook meals with limited supplies.

Owner's Response: I am so sorry that you didn't have enough tools for cooking ect..had you let me know that while you were there I would have taken what you needed to you. I do need to take the sleep#bed off of the listing. I have revised the listing but obviously I did overlook that. Although all of my photos are current I have refurnished the house and put in new appliances. Thank you for the compliments as well. If you stay again I will be sure to have more items. Thank you for choosing our Vacation rental for your stay. Rosie Schmitgen

Highly Recommended

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year in a row renting this home. Both experiences have been excellent! We share the home with some family friends and I can say it is spacious enough that we don't feel "on top of each other". There is also plenty of common area for when we all get together to hang out or eat dinner. The kitchen is well stocked with everything including spices. The owner is also very pleasant and responsive.

Wonderful Spring Break

  • 4 of 5

My 4 grandchildren and their parents met in Corpus for Spring Break and thoroughly enjoyed staying in this property. It is very conveniently located with easy access to beach, restaurants and family attractions. The air hockey table was a huge hit with everyone. We had fun cooling together in the spacious kitchen and having family meals around the dining table. There is even an awesome expresso/drink automated machine....just press a button! We discovered a wonderful local deli right down the street: Small Planet Deli...great lunches. The owners were delightful and extremely responsive to questions and needs. I would definitely recommend this to a friend.
