  • Family retreat

    "Out the door we (4 adults and several kiddos) headed to our first home rental. Not quite sure what to expect upon arrival. A bit to our dismay the house was not directly located on the beach. However, we soon realized what a treasure it and the location was. There was peace and quiet-no city anywhere. The house had plenty of room for the kids to disappear and play while we adults had rejuvenation time. The deck is extremely calming at night! The travel to the beaches- yes beaches, because there are several to choose from- was not far at all. Our beach of choice was padre by Bob Hall Pier. Spending all day at the beach to come back and crash at a home was priceless. No more hotels near the waterfront for us. We choose here to come back for years to come. Thank you rick for offering such a wonderful escape!"

  • Adorable Beach House with Great Outdoor Spaces

    "The property owner has a great sense of style - such a nicely decorated house with a cute but cool beach theme. Very pretty and comfortable. We spent a long weekend with two other couples at this house. All had king size beds and private baths. The downstairs suit was more private. You had to go outside to get up to the main part of the house but this was fine. The home had a nice size island which seated 6 couples comfortably. Kitchen was large enough for three women to cook up several feasts and a large variety of drinks! The best part was the outdoor spaces - four of them! There is a large deck over the boathouse with the cutest margaritaville wood chairs providing a great view of the water (on a canal that leads to the Intercoastal Waterway). A nice covered deck was located in front of the upstairs entry to the kitchen/living area. Another covered patio is located in front of the downstairs suite. The last and most fun outdoor living area was along the water. This was a perfect spot for fishing and watching boats go by. This is not a true beach house in that there is no access to a beach but it's a perfect house for kayaking with easy access from the boat house and a short paddle out to some great fishing spots (just south of Estes Cove). Unfortunately it rained and was too windy to do this when we were there but will try this on our next trip. This is a very clean and comfortable home - perfect for a getaway with friends or a family wiht teenagers. Also close to Rockport for some great shopping!"

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.

Things to Do From Your Rockport Lodging

A deep sea fishing trip is a great day out, full of excitement. Hire a small boat of your own if you prefer and enjoy a leisurely day on the water. You can take a historic drive of the area by picking up an audio tape from the Chamber Visitor Center and following the directions. Bird watching is also very popular in the area and garden lovers will enjoy touring Green Acres Gardens on the corner of Mimosa and Pearl.

Fishing gear, a survival capsule from an offshore oil rig, and a lifeboat are just some of the interesting exhibits.
