About this home

When you arrive at Casa Calypso in this historic neighborhood, you will immediately relax in the chill vibe of this airy, light filled space. Kick off your shoes, grab a cold one and go for a swing in the hammock. Plan your trip to the beach, under a 30 min drive away - play, swim in the surf, sunbathe.
Or go for a stroll along the bay; just a 20 minute walk to water views. Enjoy a seafood dinner downtown; a 10 min drive away.

Return to your private sanctuary and relax, rinse (off) & repeat!

**PLEASE NOTE** I do live on the property; in the little "casita" in the back yard. I can be available for any questions; otherwise my priority is to give my guests as much privacy as I can, while still living on the property. So if you need complete privacy, my home may not be a good fit for you!

Two big bedrooms, two large living areas, intimate dining room, open kitchen design, roomy bathroom.

Washer & dryer in house.

Spectacular patio & pergola make outdoor living a pleasure. A lush & cozy backyard makes it your private sanctuary.

Carport for your small car and plenty of driveway space.

Quiet, friendly neighborhood centrally located; walking distance to the bay, major grocery store, two hospitals (Dr's Regional & Driscoll Children's), restaurants, dollar store, gym.

Under a 30 minute drive from house to beach. 10 minute walk to bay front, 5 more to kid-magnet Cole Park. 10 minutes to Downtown, 15 minutes to attractions Concrete Street Ampitheatre, Whataburger Field, American Bank Center, Hurricane Alley water park, The Lexington, Texas State Aquarium. 10 minutes to La Palmera Mall and many restaurants. 30 minutes to N. Padre Island, 40 minutes to Port Aransas. Bus stop is one block away.

I have filled my home with original art, functional antiques, lovely rugs - and NO clutter! Most people when entering my home comment on the "good energy" You will LOVE calling this place home for your stay here in Corpus Christi. As we say here; "Mi casa es su casa!" (my house is your house).

ALSO NOTE: There is a resident cat! She vacates the house with me, but If you have severe cat allergies, this might be a problem despite the fact that the house is kept super clean. Feel free to give me a call to discuss!

    Another excellent stay!

    This was my second stay at Casa Calypso and we’ll definitely be back for thirds! Brenda is exceptionally responsive and a great host. The house had everything we needed for our trip. Super comfortable and centrally located, with easy access to great restaurants and all the sights. House is very clean and well appointed. One of the best hosts and houses around!!!

    A month in Corpus Christi at the Casa Calypso

    Delightful property with nice amenities and a caring, attentive manager. All this and a good location for seeing the city made our stay one of our best ever.

    5 STARS all the way~

    What a wonderful place this lived up to great reviews from others. The pictures of the house drew us in and I know they will please you if you end up choosing this property. Brenda is fantastic and was available 100% for our questions. The roomy house is just a few blocks from the gulf, many great restaurants are close and shopping isn't far either. Thanks again Brenda - we'll be back!

    Wonderful weekend Away

    Brenda is a wonderful VRBO hostess. The house was clean and neat and very quiet. My brother and his wife live in the same neighborhood just a few blocks away. We had a great visit with them after not seeing them for over a year. They walked over to see the property and liked it as much as we did. Thank you Brenda we will be back.
