Rockport house description

This home sits on a small point on the eastern shore of Copano bay. You are not on a canal- you are not on a bay 'view'- you are right on the bay.

Step from the kitchen French doors into a shaded deck overlooking the bay and/or sunset. In front of you is open water with the far shore miles away, barely in sight. It's the perfect family fishing spot-everything you need is right here. The main living and cooking areas are upstairs and include 2 bedrooms and a common area with 2 twin beds and 1.5 baths. The downstairs suite is perfect for another family of 4 with a queen bed, 2 twin beds, sitting area, flat screen TV and full bath with walk in shower. Also elderly friendly.

Just bring your food and personal items. Available for short term rentals as well as monthly for Winter Texans.

You have your own private lighted fishing pier in the backyard all to yourself. The pier has two benches, above and below water lights and a cleaning station with power and water. You have a 1200w high intensity fishing light above water and below water is a green fish light. Sight cast into the water or just watch the fish swim by. Access to many boat ramps, one of the closest is at the causeway about 10 minutes away. Dolphin's Point is located right on the bay and in the heart of some of the best saltwater fishing in the state. Or just relax and enjoy the view!

Annual events within the Rockport/Fulton area include: Fulton Oysterfest, Rockport Art Festival, Fiesta en La Playa, Hummingbird Celebration, Rockport Seafair, and Christmas Celebration or Lights.

The Rockport area is world famous for birding, first class fishing, whooping crane tours, kayak adventures, dolphin watching. Nearby destinations include: Texas Maritime Museum, Aransas National Wildlife Refuge, Rockport Center for the Arts, Copano Bay Causeway State Park. About 30 miles away in Corpus Christi is the Texas State Aquarium and the USS Lexington. The Gulf of Mexico is 45 minutes away on Mustang Island at Port Aransas, with Padre Island National Seashore a little further. Rockport has a calm, shallow sandy beach right in town and it's rated as a 'Blue Wave Beach'. It's perfect for smaller children since there is no current or surf.
