Interaction with guests
If you search for my video: Unit 2300 villa del sol corpus christi rox b, I have a video of the condo. *** The office gives map to the condo & where to park. Take the elevator near the street or the stairs near the beach. *** There are no keys to the room: You receive a one time easy to remember personal code to the door for the security that keys do not afford (lost key fees or all guests using the same keys). Punch in code, when it turns green turn knob. *I have a visitors guide & a guest book in the condo for your use. **Make sure door is locked when you leave the room every time.. ***VERY IMPORTANT: Anything having to do with booking & the condo are handled by me. ***FYI: the coffee maker=ground coffee (provided) not a Keurig
