a. VRBO miscalculates rates. b. You will receive the most up-to-date availability by calling me. c. The calendar shows only the schedule for Reel 'Em Inn. Please ask about Bird's Nest. It may be available.

Two nice Baffin Bay water-front homes to choose from, (and one on a Padre Island canal in Corpus Christi), with private fishing piers on the premier trophy trout and saltwater bay on the Gulf Coast. Quail hunting and fishing charter service available. Great fishing and birdwatching year round.

Baffin Bay is one hour south of Corpus Christi, Texas. It's surrounded by undeveloped King Ranch to the north and Kenedy Ranch to the south.

(I also have a nice 3-bedroom on a Padre Island canal outside Corpus Christi. which is a 30-day minimum rental.)

Will also consider vacation exchanges.

About Jan Canamore

The first home in our Wild Horse Lodge collection was opened in 1993, and it was the only vacation rental on the bay at that time. It was booked before closing, and we continued to build our "empire" by adding more homes throughout the next few years. We enjoyed a monopoly for quite a while, but eventually, other rentals opened up. We've now scaled down to 3 homes to enjoy travel, family and outdoor activities. wildhorselodge dot com

Jan Canamore purchased this house in 2005

Why Jan Canamore chose Riviera

Fishing, hunting, bird watching, beautiful views and solitude!

The Padre Island home is near the new Schlitterbahn Water Park and Padre Island National Seashore.

Home away from HOME!

  • 5 of 5

I simply LOVE this quiet, tucked away house. It is well manicured and precisely cared for. From the inside arrangements, to the covered Gazebo with built in brick grill or the wonderful lighted pier and deck, from which we spent most of our time fishing from. You add all of this up, along with the WONDERFUL hospitality and attention to your needs, that the owner Mrs. Jan gave us and it equals too a WONDERFUL and well deserved trip!!! If you have NOT been to this property, you are missing out!!! I WILL be going back time and time again. THANK YOU for everything. You made my trip complete.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the kind words, Kent! It was a pleasure to meet your family, and I am glad you had a relaxing stay. Come back any time. Without veterans like you and the families who support them, we certainly wouldn't be enjoying our own comfortable lives. Thank you for your service and sacrifices for team USA!

This is a great fishing retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. The house is great with a garage to park in, the patio is a wonderful place to sit and visit, or lounge in a hammock. We fished off the pier and caught a LOT of fish. It was so peaceful to sit on the pier after dark with the light on and watch the fish jump. We hope to be in the area again soon and will be staying here again!

What a wonderful and beautiful place!!! This house is amazing! This house is located right on the water and offers amazing sunrises and sunsets. The private pier is great and conveniently located to the covered seating and grilling area. The house was clean, well kept, fully stocked, cozy, and extremely comfortable! Absolutely problem free stay!!! I didn't want to leave!

The Lodge made our best experience in Baffin bay!

  • 5 of 5

Me and a few college buddies decided to take a fishing trip down to Baffin bay for a weekend. I found these properties and contacted Jan Canamore about reserving the house for our trip. SHE IS AN AMAZING lady with customer service being her central concern. The house has everything you could possibly imagine, fully stocked kitchen as far as pots, pans, cutlery, serving utensils and much more. The house itself was in great shape and well kept. No cheap furniture here, all the couches and chairs were leather and luxurious which made for excellent nap times! As for the fishing, it couldn't get much better, tons of black drum and even speckled trout in the evenings under an extremely bright fishing light. I have stayed many places on Baffin and have found the place I will continue to visit year after year. Wild Horse Lodge properties have great accommodations, if you choose this property, know that you are in great hands and that you and your family will create comfortable memories that will last a lifetime.
