Lively Beach in Mustang Island
Looking to explore the Texas Coast? Lively Beach is a new resort condo located on Mustang Island in Corpus Christi, Texas. Lively Beach is located about 3.5 hrs from Houston and Austin, and 2 hrs from San Antonio. Use our code EST for 5% off the best available rate on your booking.
Recently opened in 2020, Lively Beach consists of resort style 1-2 bedrooms condominiums. There is a resort style pool, direct beach access to a white sand beach, pet friendly rooms, and a rooftop patio to watch the sunset.
The entrance to the resort is gated for security purposes. Checking in was completely contactless, we received an email with the gate and door codes as each unit has a keypad on the door for entry. Although everything was contactless, it was still easy to contact the front desk if we needed anything.
Disclosure: We were hosted by Lively Beach but recommend them and in no way allow this to impact our views. All opinions are our own.
We really enjoyed these views from our living room and the couches were so comfortable to watch TV.
There are 1-2 beds with 1-3 baths units available. All rooms have a full kitchen or an efficiency kitchen with all the cookware, and dining ware needed. They really made this resort to where you don’t have to leave for anything!
The bathroom has everything you need from a hair dryer, steamer, shampoo, conditioner, body wash and even a makeup remover towel and a close up mirror for makeup!
The closet space was just perfect enough to hang clothes and the doors had full length mirrors.
We loved waking up to these views from our room and the beds were so comfortable.
Direct Beach Access
If you walk a couple of minutes down the beautiful scenic boardwalk you will walk directly to the beach.
The beach has white sand and the water was a little cool but perfect for the Texas heat. The beach was more secluded and not many people were around.
Beware there are tons of mosquitoes, so do not forget the bug spray!
If you get tired of the beach, then you can hang out by the pool. It is only a few steps from your room. There are seats, chaises and tables if you just want to relax with your friends or get a nice tan!
Cooking/Places to eat nearby
There are full kitchens, or efficiency kitchens in your room so you are able to cook in your room. There are also grills just a couple of steps away from your room near the boardwalk area. You could even have lunch on some of the tables at the boardwalk, or have dinner on their rooftop patio.
We hadn’t bought groceries so we ordered takeout from these spots which were all only about 5 minutes away from the resort. Honestly, we did not have one bad experience and really enjoyed all these restaurants. Below are some of the restaurants that we tried.
2.) Padre Island Burger Company – Burgers were classic and pretty good.
3.) Padre Poke – James loves poke and he really enjoyed this place.
4.) Padre Pizzeria – I got a classic pepperoni pizza and it was so good, the bread was different but delicious.
5.) La Isla – We tried their barbacoa and al pastor tacos and they were delicious!
