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!

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.

Wonderful little home. We had a great time staying there.Thanks

  • 4 of 5

Nice little home with a unique layout. Nicely decorated and clean. I liked the info spinner about the area and we added some that we found. Nice back yard for bbq, horse shoes, crocket, or relaxing. The furnace may need to be looked at it was making a noise and didn't cool well the second night. It was nice that there was WiFi there since the service in that area is limited. Overall we had a great time.Thanks

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.
