Overview

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps up to 10)

This home sits on a small point on the eastern shore of Copano bay. You are not on a canal- you are not on a bay 'view'- you are right on the bay. Upstairs step from the kitchen French doors into a shaded deck overlooking the bay and/or sunset. In front of you is open water with the far shore miles away, barely in sight. It's the perfect family fishing spot-everything you need is right here. The main living and cooking areas are upstairs and include 2 bedrooms and a common area with 2 twin beds and 1.5 baths. the 3rd bedroom suite is downstairs and includes a full size bed, 2 twin beds, flat screen TV, sitting area and full bath with walk in shower.

Just bring your food and personal items. Available for short term rentals as well as monthly for Winter Texans.

You have your own private lighted fishing pier in the backyard all to yourself. The pier has two benches, above and below water lights and a cleaning station with power and water. You have a 1200w high intensity fishing light above water and below water is a green fish light. Sight cast into the water or just watch the fish swim by. Access to many boat ramps, one of the closest is at the causeway about 10 minutes away. Dolphin's Point is located right on the bay and in the heart of some of the best saltwater fishing in the state. Or just relax and enjoy the view!

Annual events within the Rockport/Fulton area include: Fulton Oysterfest, Rockport Art Festival, Fiesta en La Playa, Hummingbird Celebration, Rockport Seafair, and Christmas Celebration or Lights.

The Rockport area is world famous for birding, first class fishing, whooping crane tours, kayak adventures, dolphin watching.

Our Favorite Getaway Spot!

  • 5 of 5

Just had another amazing stay at Dolphin's Point! We have been staying here 2-3 times a year for the last several years and each time is as great as the first. All the upgrades - floors, couches, etc. have added to the comfort of the house. Wonderful location for fishing, relaxing, and close to shopping. Can't wait for our next stay!!!!!!

Excellent trip! Great house! Fantastic memories!

  • 5 of 5

My wife, my 15 month old son, and I went for a weekend excursion,and stayed at this beautiful home on Copano Bay. It couldn't have been better. We arrived in time to see the sunset, then we had a nice dinner on the picnic table overlooking the water. We stayed in the downstairs room, which could be called the penthouse. Beautifully decorated, easy access to the pier, and very comfortable overall. It was especially nice since our son could "get away" from the group to nap when needed. Great location. Great amenities. Great entertaining with friends. Even great fishing. We usually go once a year to the Rockport area, but now that we've found this place, we will try to make trips more frequently. I highly recommend this property.

Wow. Just wow place was amazing!!!

  • 5 of 5

The 1st 5 min of being there and walking around and taking pics we saw the dolphins. My wife was excited. We stayed down stairs and up stairs. We had 8 ppl and we fit with no problem. We caught fish everyday we were there. We threw everything back thought my wife and mother fished everyday and night and always caught something. They had fun. The last night of our stay my dad caught a 38" black drum. We were happy. Then 10min later a school of speckled trout came in for 45- 1 hour and my wife and mother couldn't stop catching fish. After that stopped (only because we ran out of live shirmp) we packed everything to leave but left one rod out and sure enough 1am I got me a 42" black drum fought for about 30 min in pitch black. But I got them. My dad doesn't want to be on the website but I will show my black drum! Thank you so much. Please show my pic of the drum I sent

Dolphin Point House

  • 5 of 5

Our whole family really enjoyed the stay at Dolphin Point. The accomodations were wonderful. My oldest son really enjoyed the lower bedroom accommodations and its ease of access to the pier. The next time we rent I might like to stay in it just to keep from hauling my 370 pounds up and down the stairs. We caught fish under the lights at night and relaxed and rested during the days. Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home with us! We will definitely recommend it to our freinds!

Owner's Response: Thank you Norman! Yes staying in the downstairs room does have it's advantages. Let the young work off some energy doing laps from the stairs to the end of the pier! We look forward to hearing from you again.

We Love Staying Here !!!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed here several times and it is WONDERFUL !!! Beautiful and comfortable home with great views of Copano Bay. Daily dolphin and bird sightings. The new downstairs bedroom and bathroom are a great new addition which means we can have more family and friends with us. The new downstairs bathroom is something you would expect to find at a resort or spa. We always enjoy time on the super-long pier, and we have been lucky to catch fish every time we have stayed. We love staying here and we have already scheduled our next visit.

This is a great place to relax and unwind. Clean and comfortable, with a great fishing pier. My kids stayed busy all weekend! Love the extra "hotel style" bedroom downstairs with its own private bath! We will definitely return for another stay!
