Waterfront Ground Floor on Key Allegro--Corner Condo--THE very best location

Bedrooms 2
Space 1,050 sq. ft.
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 2 - 30 nights


About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Updated corner condo in the prestigious Key Allegro community of Rockport. All on one level and in the prime location for these condos. You will be able to look out on the water from every window. A canal and Key Allegro Marina are behind you, and just across the street is Little Bay. This condo is ideally situated for a relaxing time.

Start with coffee in the morning on the deck (replaced in 2017) as you watch the boats head out to fish. The birds are calling you and the water is shimmering. What a great way to start the day.

Or go fish! Less than ten steps from your back deck you can park your boat, ready for that early morning trek into some of the best fishing along the Texas Coast. Call me and I'll tell you where they were last week. And in the evening when you return, the fresh water wash down is right there. You'll be cooking fish in no time on the grill that is there for you. Fish cleaning stand is just steps away.

Inside, there is ample room for your crew. There is a king bed in the master bedroom that opens onto the deck and looks out over the water. Or watch TV on the flat screen wall mounted TVs in the living room and master bedroom. . The second bedroom has a double bed and bunk beds for your older spry children, and yes there is a TV in there as well, but who's counting?

The kitchen was recently enlarged and boasts one of the largest kitchens in the complex, with Silestone counter tops, beaded board cabinets, and a big pantry. The large farmer style sink really helps with managing a large dinner party and the adjacent eating bar gives you additional seating for guests. Everything you need to cook a feast is there. It's stocked like your kitchen back home, not what you would expect in a typical vacation home. Our guests are always amazed at how convenient it all is. And we add more as we go. A rollaround minibar is in the dining area so you can keep your adult beverages in place while you prepare that big meal.

Granite vanity tops in both bathrooms. New carpet and simulated wood plank flooring. All new paint and new colors bring the living space to life! A chest freezer was added in 2011 making it all the more convenient for storing up to four 20# bags of ice for that early morning fishing excursion.

The tennis court has been resurfaced and has a new net, and you'll find the racquets and balls in the closet. There's a basketball goal there in case you're up for some round ball action. The swimming pool area has been updated as well. Feel free to use the pool floats in the closet when you go.

It's hard to pick my favorite place in the condo, so I go outside. The new deck is the place!! The huge deck overlooking the marina and out onto Little Bay is a perfect place to relax at sunset--my favorite time of day. But the morning coffee on the deck is quite nice too. There's a grass yard next to you for extra seating or lawn games, and the dock and pier just below you have been rebuilt, bigger, and wider. This is the place you will want to come back to, again and again.

About David Covington

An old fireman and school teacher who love to fish. We are blessed with 3 boys, their wives and 9 grandkids, and our daughter. Everyone who can walk can fish. Since we're all hooked on fishing, we spend a lot of our time cruising the bays and flats. From Curt's Cut to Yucca Cut and Mud Island to St. Joe's Island, there's never a bad day on the water. And in the evenings, when fish are frying and the family is all there--well, it just doesn't get any better than that.

David Covington purchased this condo in 2007

Why David Covington chose Rockport

There's a saying that Rockport is a quiet little drinking town with a fishing problem. It's really much more than that. There's the nautical flea market, Seafair, Oysterfest, The Arts Festival, and the Texas Wine Festival to name a few. There's Rockport Beach, the shops lining Main street, or the restaurants of Fulton (lots of restaurants), the history, the wildlife and the birds, and of course the water. There's nothing like being next to the water. The shimmer of lights, the porpoises in the canals, the boats going by, are all so relaxing. We have been vacationing in Rockport for more than 40 years and it never gets old. What a great little place here on the Texas coast.

What makes this condo unique

We love early morning walks along Aransas Bay and Little Bay, the waters around Key Allegro Island. You'll see plenty of people out as well. Then during the day and evening, it's less than 2 miles back to the shops in downtown Rockport, or 2 minutes the other way to the restaurants in the harbor area of Fulton. Or maybe we just stay at home, pull the chairs down on the dock and watch the sun set over the water. You can do as little or as much as you like, and still have a ball.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Loved our visit to Rockport and will remember your condo. The location was great and really enjoyed sitting on the deck. Everything about the condo was good for our group.

Exactly what we needed!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is perfect for our Family. Access was easy, neighbors were kind and considerate but secluded just enough. They have done a great job of remodeling and decorating to make it comfortable for renters. The small chest freezer in the living room to store ice is ideal. It has tons of kitchen accessories so we will not have to bring much next time to cook. Even wine glasses.

It is a beautiful place to stay and we will be back. Thank you.

Great Time

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for 4 nights and this was a great getaway. The condo was perfect for us and in a beautiful setting. Loved the king sized bed and the second and bathroom. The dolphin and bird watching in the canal was great and we had a wonderful time at a local bar called Rusty's. If you are interested in a fishing trip call Captain Ed Jenkins at Ingleside Sport Fishing for a great trip. We will return for certain.

Nice getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this property last weekend and it was perfect! This condo is wonderful and met all of our needs. They have thought of every detail for their guest. It was truly nice to just relax and enjoy the view. Our family had a great time, both at the condo and at the public beach in Rockport. The neighborhood seem very quiet and we hardly saw any boat traffic during our visit. The property was clean and well maintained. We're looking forward to our next stay.

Loved every minute! Perfect family getaway in the perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We loved everything about the condo, the location, and amenities. We have stayed at MANY locations in Rockport and this is by far our favorite. The condo is clean, comfortable, modern, and has everything you need. The owners were easy to work with and responsive. Our favorite thing about the condo is not having to pack things up with the kids in tow to fish. They can just walk right out the back door and wet a hook. It makes it so relaxing for busy full-time working parents who still want to entertain their kids but get to relax too. We loved the cranes that came for a visit, the dolphins swimming by were icing on the cake. The pool was close, clean, and enjoyable. We love everything about Rockport from the fishing, to the shopping, the beach, the many places to eat, museums, and we even checked out the movie theater this time due to the rain. We will definitely be back!
