Rockport house description

This house is the one you will return to time and time again, in a quiet neighborhood in Rockport, Texas. The house is beautiful, fresh and clean and has a quaint, comfortable beach house feel. Take your pick from the Purple Cat room, the Tropical Hawaiian room or the Master suite.

Cook breakfast in the kitchen or lunch on the grill and enjoy it on the patio, watching all of the native birds. You can go to the beach or take a dip out back and float in the water or even take a ride in our two man kayak or go by yourself in our one man kayak, out to Estes Flats which is some of the best fishing and duck hunting in South Texas. The house is surrounded by lush tropical foliage and a garden. Our house is perfect for relaxing on the porch or sunning your buns in the backyard.

The Palm Harbor Marina is walking distance from the house were you can buy bait, have lunch or explore the inter-coastal shore line.

There is ample fishing off the bulkhead in back of the house or a spacious area to tie up your own boat were it is waiting for you to jump in it and go catch the big ones. A green-light in the water attracts all sorts of fish at night and also you can light up the fireplace for your enjoyment, under the beautiful starry night skies.

We are located about 5 minutes from Rockport and about 25 minutes from Port Aransas and Corpus Christi. The area has great restaurants that can grill what you catch or serve fantastic seafood.

Remember, we are on the GOOD side of the canal for you folks who love to be on the porch in the evening ejoying the view and your favorite beverage in the hot summer.

We think you will have a grand time here at our Great Vacation Rental, just pack your clothes, fishing gear and food, as that is all you will need when you stay with us. Give us a call, as we would love to help you in any way we can.

Calvin and Stephani Mikeska

                      Year Purchased: 2002

                      About the owner: Calvin and I just love our home, Paradise Found. We take pride in making it a wonderful Vacation house for our Guest to come to and have a wonderful time. We just love it when our Grandbabies come and stay with us and enjoy fishing off the bulkhead in the Green Light and Wyatt our Grandboy says, 'Papa, you caught good fish, yum yum', Good Job Papa. Life is good at Paradise Found, come and enjoy!!!

                      Why the Owner Chose Rockport:
                      Because folks love to come to Rockport and enjoy the weather, fishing and fun.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Calvin and I just love to hang out on the porch and enjoy the water and wild life. It is very relaxing as we wait for our fishing pole, down on the bulkhead, to bend over as we run down to real in our caught. Then we go to our garden to pick some arugala for a fabulous salad to go with our fresh cooked fish.
