Wonderful property, great stay!
Wonderful property, great stay!
We had one of the most relaxing weekends in a long time, staying at this place. What a wonderful property! The owners obviously care a lot about the property, its maintained very well, nicely appointed with all amenities (full kitchen, books, board games) and is very comfortable. The time we spent on the property's patio/deck overlooking the canal called for some very peaceful times and rejuvenated us. Rockport is a wonderful little town, with some great eats, and a beach where we took long walks enjoying the birds and jellyfish along the way. To sum it up - wonderful property, beautiful small town. Go there! You will come back refreshed.

Lovely, quiet end of canal home, very comfortable. Owners are very helpful. Prompt in answering emails and offer thorough information on house and the area. Beautiful neighborhood, pool available for use. Very close to town and the beach. Jalisco Restaurant has a wonderful breakfast and is just down the road as is the HEB grocery store. We enjoyed our stay very much, could not have asked for an easier, more comfortable getaway. I would recommend this home to anyone ready to relax and enjoy the coast.

This was my second stay at this property and I recommend it heartily. The house and lawn are lovely, clean and well maintained. The air conditioning works great! I enjoyed sipping a morning cup of coffee on the large upstairs deck while watching the water, clouds, and sea birds. The neighborhood is very nice and good for breezy evening walks. We enjoyed shopping in downtown Rockport, and I think that the "Comforts of Home" was my favorite shop. For breakfasts out, Jalisco is the place to go. The owners of this house were helpful and pleasant. They obviously care about giving their renters a quality experience.

Gulf Coast getaway
Gulf Coast getaway
After several stressful months at work, I went to VRBO seeking a place where I could get some much-needed rest and relaxation on the Gulf Coast. I found the perfect rental home in the classy Key Allegro subdivision near Rockport, Texas. This home had everything I needed in the way of amenities and had a very comfortable vibe. It is located on one of the canals in Key Allegro and this afforded me the opportunity to fish and kayak in the canal. But, honestly, I spent most my time at the house chilling on the veranda with a cold beer and a good book. The view of the sunset in the late afternoon was spectacular. Although the kitchen had all the appliances necessary for cooking, I treated myself to a few dinners in Rockport. I can most highly recommend The Boiling Pot, a low key reataurant with a funky, crab shack feel. I had a highly-enjoyable cajun dinner of gumbo, crabs, shrimp, corn and potatoes. This Key Allegro rental house was the perfect place to get away for a relaxing vacation and I plan to return as often as possible.

Owner response: So glad you all had fun! We look forward to having you come back and stay with us!
I loved my weekend stay at this property. The house is spacious, clean, and tasteful. It had all the comforts I needed, and none of the clutter of home. I liked the second floor covered deck for visiting with friends over a glass of wine in the evening as well as for sipping my morning coffee while the occasional sea bird flew over the canal below. There was a delightful breeze, and we enjoyed walks in the neighborhood and along the gulf both mornings and evenings. The location was terrific, because we were only a few minutes from everything: restaurants, grocery, public beach, downtown shopping and more. I definitely recommend this property and look forward to my next visit here.

My wife and I had a wonderful time in Rockport. The house was beautifual and the stay was so relaxing we need to go back soon. I regret not bringing our Kayaks or boat. The house is on the canal and has easy access to the bay. Next time we will spend time on the water. Another plus for the area is the restaurants in Rockport are incredible compared to other Texas coastal towns. I look forward to returning and hope it is sooner than later.

Excellent rental by the Canal in Key Allegro

Our stay was only 3 days but felt longer. The corner location of the home offers quiet. The comfortable beds provided us with great rest, We enjoyed meals on the deck and evenings both in the nearby village and in the comfortable, open dining/family room. The home is warm and welcoming, easy to settle into and even easier to clean when we left. We will absolutely return if it is available.

My family rented this home for the week of Thanksgiving. It was very comfortable, clean, and had everything we needed. The kitchen had everything needed for my husband to cook Thanksgiving dinner. We liked being able to keep our boat there and would ride the boat to the Marina to eat. It felt like home by the end of the week. We would definitely rent this home again.

About the owner: Our family lives in the Austin area and loves going down to the coast to relax and unwind. There is nothing like sitting on the back deck, watching the birds, reading a book or taking a nap! Above is a picture of Jessica and her dad, excited about leaving for a trip to the coast!
Why the Owner Chose Rockport:
My husband's parents had a home in Key Allegro many years ago and when we were thinking about purchasing a vacation home, we were drawn to the area. It is easily accessible from several major Texas cities including Austin, San Antonio and Houston which makes it an fun and quick place to escape to on the weekend. Also, it has several good restaurants and a great beach for children. I love the ability to hop in our boat or take off in a kayak right from the back deck! My husband and daughter spend hours fishing off the back deck and also love to take the kayak out and fish in the canals. The coast house is our retreat from the craziness of our everyday lives. All in all, it's a very relaxing, fun place to visit.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
One of my passions is kayaking. There are loads of options as far as where to kayak in the Key Allegro/Rockport area. Also, if you like to fish, this area can't be beat! The house is spacious and comfortable and we continue to update it each year. Everytime we come down to the house, we make an effort to do something to improve it. Recently, we had all the siding replaced with hardiplank and completely repainted the outside. We also put in new windows throughout earlier in the year and added a stainless steel stove, microwave and refrigerator. It's fun to see the changes each time we visit!
