As I posted a couple of days ago I am considering a move to the Corpus Christi area. It will take a year or 2 before I am ready to move but I already have an apartment complex all picked out. (Obviously I haven't made any commitments or anything yet) But it looks like a nice area. It's also close to Corpus which is a good place (it seems) for jobs. I know the company I will be working for has openings in Corpus.

Anyway, I don't know if anyone from the area knows anything about this particular complex but it's reasonable priced and has a decent rating on apartmentrating.com So I am thinking of checking it out.

This is the place I am thinking about going to... Apartment Overview Land's End Portland, TX

Also, since I live near Portland Maine and I read that Portland TX was named after Portland Maine so it makes it a little more attractive haha!

Plus no snow and palm trees and warm (hot) weather makes it attractive too!!

Portland is nice, you'd like it there. It's between Corpus Christi and Port Aransas, so whatever you need isn't too far away. I live in Ingleside which is just one exit off of Hwy 35 after leaving Portland. I'm not 100% sure I've ever seen those apartments, but there are several to choose from in town. Those look like they back up to the east end of Nueces Bay so the water view would be nice. Portland has shops, some restaurants and a brand new 8-screen movie theater. If I were going to buy a home near Corpus, I'd probably buy in Portland.

I lived down the block from Land's End for 18 yrs. My mom still does. Portland is awesome, small but close enough to CC for everything you could need. Portland has been nicknamed "the bedroom city" as many live in Portland, but commute to CC or Aransas/Ingleside/Rockport/Sinton/ etc for work. Land's end is an older complex so don't expect a new place. Used to know church families that lived there about 10 yrs or so ago, but don't know much about them now. If you want new, try the new apts near Northshore. They are nice and in a nicer part of Portland.
