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!

Wonderful place to stay and very convenient!

  • 5 of 5

Loved this house and all the coastal decor! The backyard was perfect for our Fourth of July cookout with a nice grill, hammock and plenty of space for our cornhole set up. We were in walking distance to the marina with tons of restaurants, bars and shops. We truly enjoyed our holiday weekend and Stacy was incredibly accommodating and answered all our questions in a timely manner.

Its Ok

  • 2 of 5

Positive: very spacious, lots of towels, cooking utensils are provided,updated showers however need a shower head holder but thats ok, we got by without it,fans in every room except the living room.

Negative: we did not like the idea were the masters bedroom is located were the back door is, we had trouble with opening the front door so we have been using the back door on the first day we got there,and notified Stacy which she had it resolved by sending her housekeeper, which we appreciated so much.Secondly, the door knobs in the bathroom and bedroom doors needing to be replaced.One of the doors were not latching well so my parents need to place a cardboard in between the wall and door so it will stay closed.Third,we saw at least 5 dead roaches while staying there and 4 live ones so thats not good.Fourth, my parents stayed in one of the bedrooms, the pink bedroom, where the closet was stuffed with christmas decorations and it smelled , no wonder there was a figurine door stopper to keep it closed.Fifth,in the same room the t.v was not working at all.6th,i think overall the house needs updating.

Owner's Response: Thank you for letting me know about the doorknobs and TV. I will get those replaced. The shower was designed like that on purpose, so that will not change.The master door will not be relocated either. Thank you for your comments.

My husband and I came down here for the weekend with our 15 month old and mother in law. I loved the set up of the bedrooms! We were able to lay him down for naps and bedtime on the far side of the house while we enjoyed the backyard without disturbing him. There was more than enough room for all of us! The decor is beachy and fun and the house has a really good feel to it. It is only a 5 minute walk to Charlotte Plumbers restaurant and The Sugar Shack bar which are some of our favorite places down here. We will definatley be returning. I highly recommend!

The picture of the wonderful place in Fulton is very old It does not look like that today. It is very unkept on the outside.
