  • The Grouper at Fishcamp Rockport --WOW!!!!

    "Went down to Rockport for a quick weekend fishing getaway with friends and even though our fishing guide's boat problems cancelled our fishing trip, WOW, the Grouper cottage at Fishcamp Rockport was AWESOME. Very clean, decorated beautifully, cable TV (that we never watched) and comfortable beds. Plenty of games to keep us entertained (bigtime UNO wars both nights), not to mention the kitchen was equipped with everything we needed (and outdoor grill). I would definitely recommend for anyone looking for a quick (or long-term) getaway. Thank you and we will be back!!!"

  • FANTASTIC ARTIST RETREAT!

    "Everything about our little cottage was just as described - clean and comfortable, cool and problems were resolved quickly. It could use an extra garbage can. Eight ladies can generate lots of waste, but it was homey, safe and very convenient to everything. I would highly recommend it for families or small groups. The deck was lovely also! Bring lawn chairs, because there aren't many."

  • great deal

    "Small house on a quiet street that is close to everything. Off street parking for up to 2 cars was nice. Great enclosed backyard with BBQ. The cookware is past due for replacement, but all the basics are there. Lots of dishes, glassware and utensils. Seating in the living room is a bit limited with a love seat and big rattan chair that was rather comfortable. There are board games, books and magazines throughout the house. The ceiling fan in the master is wobbly and noisy and you can hear every car on the street go by, so sleep did not come easy for me. My husband slept like a baby, so this may not be an issue for everyone. My 2 adult sons occupied the other bedrooms and seemed quite comfortable although the twin beds were a bit small for the one that got there last. This room is more suited for children."

  • Labor Day Relaxation

    "My wife and I have been going to visit Rockport for the last few years. We have stayed at hotels. No more. This condominium was perfect. Tim and Denise were easy to deal with even though they had some personal issues they were dealing with just like we were. The inside was spectacular. Very comfortable and easy living. We had two little issues which were immediately taken care of and were done with complete respect to our schedule. Watching the pelicans, dolphins, terns, ducks, fish and other wildlife from our balcony was so relaxing. You could count on something happening outside in Little Bay almost at all hours. These are not distracting things just nature entertaining you. By Monday night the place was practically empty as all the labor day visitors headed home. We were able to go to the beach in Rockport as well as out in Port Aransas and just had a blast. This is a friendly complex where you can meet people if you want or b e private. The choice is yours. You cannot go wrong taking advantage of this rental."

Rockport Travel Tips

Why Choose Rockport Vacation Rentals

Rockport and its sister town of Fulton are just to the northeast of Corpus Christi in Texas. They are on the mainland coast, facing San Jose Island across Aransas Bay. The sheltered waterway provides excellent beaches along this lovely coastline, particularly on the barrier islands. Rockport is an established art town with many galleries in the charming downtown area and the Rockport Art Center nearby.

The wetlands and windswept oaks in the area make an attractive natural sight and are the perfect environment for walking, birding and fishing. The Aransas National Wildlife Refuge is an interesting place to visit and has a colony of threatened whooping cranes which visit during the winter months.

Rockport vacation rentals are available in various sizes and locations and ideal for snowbirds, families and groups of friends sharing a vacation. Each individual vacation home rental will have its own charm and character but all homes have comfortable living space with one or more TVs. The well-equipped kitchen is ideal for preparing snacks and drinks. Families requiring special diets, or those who do not want to blow the vacation budget on dining out, will find a vacation rental home the perfect solution.

Families are able to spread out and do their own thing on their own agenda in a spacious vacation home. With plenty of space for grandparents and the family pet, a Rockport vacation rental is the perfect home away from home.
