I'm moving down to Corpus for school sometime around August and am looking for apartments. I can afford around 600 a month in rent. I don't mind having to make a short drive to school, but I'd prefer something less than 20 minutes away. This most important thing for me is it being bug free. I know I shouldn't expect too much for 600 a month, but I'm kind of a big baby when it comes to bugs. I'm flying down there in early may to look at some apartments before i make my final decision. I've already decided to look at The Summit and The Veranda apartments. Any other suggestions?

I don't know much about rents, but it will be easy to find something within 20 mins of the TAMUCC. In fact, it would be hard to find much of an apartment farther away than that.

As for bugs....well....talk to the management about what they do as far as pest control. I hate to say it, but they're really just a part of life here. I hate them too, but you kinda get used to seeing them after a while. A newer complex will probably be better than an older complex. Where are you moving from?

I was going to mention that Marlow, but it kind of goes without saying in South Texas, bugs are just something we live with down here.

$600 per month is not out of the park for apt rentals, but the original poster needs to pay close attention to how close they are to the flood zone,,, the closer they they are to TAMCC, the more likely they are to flood in a heavy rain, certainly do not take a 1st floor apt. There are a lot of horror stories out there.

I'd recommend someplace back towards SPID and Airline, Just MHO.

I'm moving from the dallas area. I'll definitely keep that in mind about the flooding.

Haha I get that there will be bugs, I've just made the mistake of having to stay in an apartment that was so filled with roaches that, when you flipped on the kitchen light, you couldn't see the majority of the floor. Sad thing is I'm barely exxagerating. I just don't want to actually have to stay in a place like that again.

That's extreme--sounds like a neighbors being filthy problem more than just a hot humid climate problem.

No matter what you do, you'll see them from time to time. But apartment management can avoid an infestation like that with regular spraying.
