Property description

Great for a family vacation or an adult getaway! This fabulous home is located in Bahia Bay, a private community of water front homes. Bahia Bay is just a few minutes from downtown Rockport or the ferry that takes you to the beaches of Port Aransas. Fishermen love this area because of the quick access to bay and off-shore fishing. A 30' trout was caught in Estes Flats (just across the Intercoastal waterway) in May 2011.

This home includes a formal dining room with seating for six including crystal and china place settings. A man-cave/office (foldout couch w/queen sleeper), 1/2 bath and large living area that opens into the fully equipped kitchen and breakfast area.

There is a covered patio with outdoor furniture, an attached sun deck with table and chairs for outdoor dining and a rock patio for the BBQ grill or smoker (owner provided). Downstairs includes the master bedroom (king size bed) w/ an over-sized bathroom w/2 vanities, jacuzzi tub and separate shower; a utility room with washer, dryer & chest freezer for your fish. You'll also find beach chairs, towels and toys, along with fishing rods, reels, a tackle box, fish towels and a bait bucket.

Upstairs includes 2 large bedrooms (queen size bed in one & full size bed in the other) with a shared full bathroom. All bedding and towels are provided. Central htg/a. and ceiling fans throughout. There are also storm shutters on all windows and doors for your safety.

The over-sized garage includes a 1/2 bath, work space and roll-up door to the backyard & boat landing. There are 2 fish cleaning stations with lights and running water near the boat lift.

There is room for your bay boat, off-shore boat or sailboat. Fresh water to rinse your boat, motor & rods/reels. After a day at the beach, there is also an undercarriage fresh water rinse station on the auto-sprinkler in the driveway.

So pack your bags, rods & reels (or you can use ours), bring your boat and come on down to enjoy the good life - you know you deserve it!

The weather is always great. Spring and fall fishing is the best, and don't forget duck hunting in the winter. If you like solitude, walks on the beach in the winter, with a thermos of hot cocoa or coffee, is great.

We don't have seasonal rates, just reasonable rates all year - short term and long term rates are available.

We love it here and hope you will, too!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: We met in 1999. After living an hour away from each other and dating for 7 years, we decided we couldn't live without each other. We celebrated our 8th anniversary on August 11, 2014.

Why the Owner Chose Rockport:
Debbi's father built this custom home. It was her parents' retirement retreat.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Waterfront home on a canal in Bahia Bay - midway between the Rockport ski basin and the ferries to Port Aransas. Step out the backdoor, cross the yard and step into your docked boat - you can be fishing the bays in 5 minutes. Only a few minutes more and you'll be headed out the jetties to fish offshore. And finally, a great floor plan for 2 to 8 guests with plenty of room for everyone!
