About Leslie

Our family lives in the Austin area and loves going down to the coast to relax and unwind. There is nothing like sitting on the back deck, watching the birds, reading a book or taking a nap! Above is a picture of Jessica and her dad, excited about leaving for a trip to the coast!

Leslie purchased this house in 2005

Why Leslie chose Key Allegro

My husband's parents had a home in Key Allegro many years ago and when we were thinking about purchasing a vacation home, we were drawn to the area. It is easily accessible from several major Texas cities including Austin, San Antonio and Houston which makes it an fun and quick place to escape to on the weekend. Also, it has several good restaurants and a great beach for children. I love the ability to hop in our boat or take off in a kayak right from the back deck!

My husband and daughter spend hours fishing off the back deck and also love to take the kayak out and fish in the canals. The coast house is our retreat from the craziness of our everyday lives. All in all, it's a very relaxing, fun place to visit.

What makes this house unique

One of my passions is kayaking. There are loads of options as far as where to kayak in the Key Allegro/Rockport area. Also, if you like to fish, this area can't be beat! The house is spacious and comfortable and we continue to update it each year. Everytime we come down to the house, we make an effort to do something to improve it. Recently, we had all the siding replaced with hardiplank and completely repainted the outside. We also put in new windows throughout earlier in the year and added a stainless steel stove, microwave and refrigerator. There is a brand new roof as well as two new HVAC systems. It's fun to see the changes each time we visit!

Great Place for friends and family

  • 5 of 5

I highly recommend this place! We had such an awesome time here. Leslie, the owner was a wealth of information and was very nice to work with too. Her suggestion of where to buy fresh seafood was spot on too! The home was perfect and the location was great. We were 2 families, so it worked out perfect for everyone to have their own room. I was the lucky one to have the downstairs to myself. We had coffee in the mornings out on the deck overlooking the canal and prepared some pretty amazing meals in the evening in the kitchen. This is a great place to stay and we all look forward to coming back again.

Perfect vacation getaway

  • 5 of 5

Took my children, grandchildren and mother in law on vacation here and we all had a great time. Very close to rockport beach and the kids loved fishing off the dock in the back. Leslie was very easy to work with and the house was just like it was described. Will definitely rent this unit again!

Key Allegro Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family and wonderful friends had such a fantastic stay in your home Lesley! We enjoyed sharing our time at your property playing games, cooking great meals and the girls shopping! This house is so well kept, very clean and comfortable for all. The downstairs has its separate suite with aminities for more privacy. It sit at the end of a canal which is great for fishing or just sunning. The shopping is close by for food or boutique shopping. We stayed at this perfect location in Key Allegro, the best area in Rockport! I highly recommend this property to anyone who wants a vacation or short getaway to Rockport!!! Thank you Lesley!!!

Great family vacation house!

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely house in the Key Allegro sub-division. It sits on the end of the canal with a great view of the water. It sleeps six upstairs in the main house and two downstairs in a separate suite with microwave and small fridge. Upstairs has a railed in covered deck with dining table and chairs. The lower deck is great for fishing and just chilling out by the water. Beautiful Rockport Beach is just ten minutes away. If you enjoy bigger waves for some good boogey boarding, then Port Aransas is only 35 minutes or so away. A lovely day trip. The property was immaculate and working with Leslie, the owner was a delightful experience. She sent all necessary information to us ahead of our arrival including activities and restaurants that she thought were the best. I highly recommend this property for anyone staying with a large group in Rockport.
