About Stacy Pannell

I live in Houston and love to travel. But of all the places I go there is nothing like the feeling of relaxation when you cross the bridge into Rockport!

If you want relaxation Rockport is the place and we would love to share this paradise by Aransas Bay with you! We have been coming here for years and our family loves Rockport- two of our children even had their weddings here! It's a great place to come and fish and enjoy some fun in the sun! I also enjoy birding, art and photography and this area provides so many opportunities for my hobbies! Rockport/ Fulton has become a tradition for our family- make it a tradition for yours!

Quaint quirky house

  • 5 of 5

This was my first trip to Rockport but I would definently go back to visit this house! It has plenty of space and is very close to the pier! The house is full of character and was fun looking around at the art and items. It also had everything we could need on our trip.

My favorite get away house

  • 5 of 5

Love going to Rockport and staying here. Plenty of room for the whole family or all my friends. Pet friendly with fenced in yard. This house has everything we need for a weekend escape from the big city. Love that it's within walking distance to some great restaurants. I look forward our beach weekend every summer and staying here.

Nice home, great owners

  • 5 of 5

The owner was very accommodating by accepting our reservation within a few days of arrival. We had stayed here some years back for he 1st time and recalled the stay being a good one. This trip we had a party of 10 people. There was plenty of room for everyone. The home was clean and well stocked with most any need. We used the grill during this stay. I go to fish and the house's location is good as it is close to quite a few fishing spots. A good time was had by all. This is the place to stay when in need of a vacation rental for a group of people large or small.

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

This review is very late, our apologies. We stayed here for Christmas 2015 with our two adult children. It was Perfect. Although some may think it is small, we found it quite comfortable and adorable, with everything you need and close to everything in the area. Stacy was so easy to work with. We'd stay here again. Thank You Stacy!

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our family really enjoyed our stay in this great vacation home! It is spacious inside, with a shady backyard for relaxing in the hammock, playing horseshoes, grilling, or just sitting and enjoying visiting on the back deck. The home is attractively decorated, and very well equipped with anything you need--linens, paper goods, kitchen ware--I can't think of anything we needed that was not available. Sheets and towels are in good condition, the house was clean, and internet worked perfectly. We enjoyed being just a short walk to Fulton Harbor, so convenient to fun fishing, bird watching, and photography spots. The owner is pleasant to work with, and is very accomodating!

Lovely base to explore the Rockport/Fulton area

  • 5 of 5

This home had plenty of space for me, my husband, our two kids, and my parents to enjoy a weekend in Rockport/Fulton. The kitchen was stocked with every sort of pot, pan, and bowl imaginable as well as beach towels. We also enjoyed the book and game collection, patio, and hammock. It is a short walk to the pier for bird- and dolphin-watching. Several restaurants, a seafood market, a bait shop, the post office, and a souvenir store are also within walking distance. We also walked to the Fulton Schoolhouse museum. We were a bit flummoxed by the thermostat at first, but we eventually figured it out.
