Port Oconnor house description

We are trying to sell our home and are therefore not taking reservations more than 60 days out. Our beautiful, almost new (2006), vacation home is located in serene Port O'connor, Texas. It is across from a Marina in the exclusive Dolphin Point subdivision on West Commerce St. It has three bedrooms featuring two queens and a double bed (also a sleeper sofa with air mattress). A POOL TABLE is downstairs. 48' TV (Dish Network with HD DVR) and pretty high speed internet connection WITH WI-FI. washer and dryer, and full-flow showers. Fully furnished including dishes/utensils. Boat and RV parking. Lockable garage. Walking distance to boat ramp.

Some of the greatest fishing on the coast. Best fishing is by boat, but there is a large, light public pier and rock jetties. There is a nice bay beach for the little ones. The area features one of the most diverse collection of birds in the world.

Winter Texans appreciate the warm temperatures, slow pace, and quiet. Wal-Mart, HEB and other shopping in Port Lavaca (about 25 miles). Good local eating


Elite Fishing Experiences and beaches: Port O'Connor offers some of the greatest fishing on the Texas Coast. It is not nearly as crowded as Port Aransas/Corpus Christi. There is none of the teenager hassle of South Padre and Port Aransas. Local fishing guides are available or you can bring your own boat. Surf fishing, pier fishing, and fishing off the bay jetties is popular without a boat. Matagorda Bay and Saluria Bayou are popular destinations. An abandoned Coast Guard station, washed away down to the concrete by a hurricane, is a popular attraction. There are ample wade fishing opportunities in the bays and back lakes. There are Gulf beaches accessible only by boat, and you may be the only one on that beach. If you want to get away from the crowds, this is your place in the sun. Literally. Ask my how to get there.

Amazing Bird Watching: If you're a bird watcher like me, welcome to heaven. I have read that there are more different bird species in Calhoun County (our county) than any other county in the world. The Roseatte Spoonbill is sighted on most excursions. Pelicans, Egrets, Osprey, Herons, Hawks, Eagles, and other bird life can be found.

Winter Texans: Port O'Connor offers a unique attraction to anyone looking to avoid the cold Northern winters. Average Winter high temperatures are in the 60s with very few days at or near freezing. Winter is the driest season of the year. The near-tropical weather produces an abundance of green vegetation through the winter months. Many sunny days and gentle breezes make for a very pleasant, peaceful stay.

                              Car: Necessary

                              A laid back style and a slow pace is required to enjoy Port O'Connor (POC). It is one of the best kept secrets of fishermen, bird watchers, and Winter Texans. You won't find throngs of tourists, overpriced cuisine, or tourist traps peddling junk. POC is quiet! It is a premier destination for bird watching, bay and Gulf fishing, duck/geese hunting, and VERY RELAXING.

                              No pets.

                              POC is perfect for a weekend getaway. Clean and pristine. It is about 3.5 hours travel time from Austin. A boys (or girls) weekend out finds peace, quiet, and plenty of fishing opportunities for redfish, speckled trout, and flounder. An extended family vacation is just as fun. There is a park with covered tables and a small beach next to the fishing pier on Matagorda Bay close by. Its shallow depths and warm water make an ideal beach for toddlers and small children.

                              November - February: Moderate tempartures and lots of sun make an ideal Winter destination.

                              March - October: Prime Fishing.
