                            The house is a little older but we had a group of 15 people stay as a family get together and it was awesome! The weather was not good for fishing while we were there so I can't comment on that but the setup was great on the pier and with the pier lights. We did spend a lot of time inside and there was everything you could think of from board games to every kind of seasoning in the cabinets. There was also plenty of space where the kids could get away from the adults and vice versa. Really all we needed was our clothes. There was even laundry detergent for the washer/dryer on site! We will definitely stay again!

                            Owner response: I wish that the fishing could have been better for you all but glad to hear that you had a good time anyway. It has been a colder than normal winter but the bay water has been staying blue/green and the porpoise and drum continue to show up around the pier. We look forward to you all returning next year.

                            My family has been coming to this lovely property for four years. Each time we find something new to enjoy. The house is comfortable and clean and feels like a home away from home. We all love the fishing pier and spend hours fishing and relaxing on the bay. Rockport and Fulton are a 10 minute drive and it is fun to take a trip in to town to shop and look around. The owner and the property manager are always available for questions and suggestions regarding the property and area. I would certainly recommend this rental to my family and friends.

                            The listing for this property was excellent and the photos were very accurate. The property was very clean and well maintained. The owner and property manager were most helpful in any questions or concerns. The home was beautifully furnished and very well stocked. It provided us, truly, with a home away from home. The beds were very comfortable. The fishing was great and the dolphins provided us with several aquatic shows. The kayaking was a special bonus as our family had not experienced it before. The little guys enjoyed the kiddie pool. The area is very private and the plants are gorgeous. We enjoyed ourselves tremendously and would recommend this rental in a heartbeat. We are already looking forward to next year.

                            Owner response: Many thanks for the glowing review and we look forward to having you back next year. We work hard at keeping this property in perfect condition but the real jewel of this property is the 300 foot pier that is 40 yards from an active shell reef in the bay. We are so fortunate to have so much marine and bird life all around us. Thanks again for your review.

                            We spent two nights here in late March and wished for more time to enjoy the place. The interior of the home is nicely appointed and the kitchen has every item you could ever need. It's all on one level, which makes it easy for people of all abilities to navigate and enjoy. We had dinners on the screened porch, where the breeze blows through and the scenery includes views of the water. The place is perfect for people who want to relax and enjoy a bit of privacy. We really enjoyed the kayaks and the area is appropriate for beginner and experienced paddlers. We enjoyed fishing from the pier and watching for dolphins (we heard them but unfortunately did not see them). Last but not least, the owner is very nice and easy to work with. Thanks very much!

                            We had one of the best vacations ever at this property! Everything was as discribed! The only let down was the fishing. We fished for hours with all kinds of baits and techniques, for 3 days and nights but only caught 5 fish total. The fish just weren't there! If possible, I would suggest chumming the area regularly to get the fish used to feeding regularly around the pier for better results. I only say this because our trip was mainly centered around fishing. The property was so nice, we would book again in a heart beat. Thanks for the opportunity!

                            Owner response: Yes, the fishing can be unpredictable, especially in the winter months and when the water is still cold in March. Another factor is when the cold fronts arrive and when the trade winds swing back around to the southeast. It is hard to catch it just right for fishing then.

                            We have spent time at this property several times and love it! It is so comfortable and charming. We love the Rockport area but also love never leaving this property. Beautiful sunrises, sunsets and a private fishing dock make this a hit with my entire family. We can't wait to return to Copano Bay.

                            We have rented several places in the Rockport/Port Aransas area with 15 family members each summer for the last few years. This place is the most comfortable and fitting for our group. Plenty of action on the pier and everything was in good clean working order. We had zero problems with anything. If we wound up in this area again for a family vacation, we will definately want to book this place. Thank you for making it available for us to enjoy.

                            The property was cozy, charming and very well maintained. It felt like home away from home. The houe was very clean, kitchen was fully stocked with all the essentials, there were 4 bathrooms and ample space for all of our guests. The pictures and description of the property on the website were very accurate. We arrived on Friday afternoon and were pleasantly surprised to walk out of the back door and head straight for the pier. My favorite spot was the guest house. The Owners answered all of my questions and Juan, the property manager, was very helpful. Downtown Rockport is about a 10 minute drive where you can find HEB, WalMart, Walgreens and a row of specialty stores for a unique shopping experience. Rockport also has a beach and host year-round festivals. We are planning on making this an annual event and will return to this property. We have already started looking at dates for 2013.

                            The house is just what the other reviews said - it has everything you need and feels like you are house sitting for friends! The dolphins in the bay gave us hours of entertainment and my kids said this was their best fishing experience. We had the most luck at night and caught speckled trout, black drum, catfish, and a few other questionable fish. Around 11 p.m. each night, dolphins would swim all around the pier, coming so close we could almost touch them. They also put on a few shows during the day. So fun to watch! There was no need to go anywhere besides a few trips for groceries and bait and it truly was a restful vacation for the adults while the kids (ages 11 and 13) had a blast. The kayaks are great and the bay is pretty calm so we didn't worry about tipping. The water all around the pier is only about waist deep anyway and safe for the kids. When it got too hot during the day, we watched movies and took naps. Very comfortable beds! We will definitely make plans to come again.

                          Year Purchased: 1959

                          About the owner: I have been vacationing in Rockport since I was an infant. Things have changed a lot over the years but it is still the best place on the Texas coast for fishing, bird watching, windsurfing and sailing. The steady breezes and spectacular Copano Bay sunsets are hard to beat. Our property is in great shape with the main house having been recently remodeled including replacement and upgrade of all interiors, apppliances and amenities. Bedding amenities are of the highest quality and very comfortable.

                          Why the Owner Chose Rockport:
                          Rockport has that south Texas feel but on the coast with generally dry weather and cool Gulf breezes.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          The property is secluded with a private 300 foot lighted fishing pier. The best spot on the property is the pavilion midway down the pier where you can nap in the shade and feel the breezes.
