About Theresa Frierson

I have been vacationing in Rockport since I was an infant. Things have changed a lot over the years but it is still the best place on the Texas coast for fishing, bird watching, windsurfing and sailing. The steady breezes and spectacular Copano Bay sunsets are hard to beat. Our property is in great shape with the house having been recently remodeled including replacement and upgrade of all interiors, appliances and amenities. Bedding amenities are of the highest quality and very comfortable.

Theresa Frierson purchased this house in 1959

Why Theresa Frierson chose Gulf Coast

Rockport has that south Texas feel but on the coast with generally dry weather and cool Gulf breezes.

Great place with lots of outdoor space

  • 5 of 5

We had a large group but it still worked well. Kids spent alot of time outdoors because of all the space. The only issue we had was no vent on the stove top meant lots of smoke in the house when cooking.

We love this rental!

  • 5 of 5

This is the fifth year we have enjoyed our family vacation at the Frierson property on Copano Bay. The area is very private with a large home beautifully landscaped with a gorgeous view. It is very clean, relaxing and well stocked with any and all amenities. The bedrooms are very comfortable and three restrooms are in the home. The living area has large bayside windows that have a wonderful view for those wishing to escape the heat.. It offers an attached suite for additional guests. There is kayaking, outdoor cooking and plenty of room for fun and games. Our kids loved playing cornhole provided at this rental. The pier has been recently updated and our nighttime fishing has been a tremendous success. The children have enjoyed the experience of actually catching fish. The owners are very accommodating and the property manager is available to address any issues. We are thankful this property is available to us and look forward to making memories in the future.

Great time. Accommodations were comfortable and homey. Plenty of extras with kayaks and pier.

  • 5 of 5

The house was clean, kitchen well equipped. Air conditioning worked great. Plenty of hot water. Lots of TVs.

The grounds are beautiful and very well kept. Plenty of beds, and all very comfortable. We were 9 ( 6 adults, 3 kids). Plenty of room. The pier is a great fishing resource. Lots of fun.

We will definitely return.

Comfortable, quiet retreat

  • 4 of 5

On arrival, the house was easy to find. Everything was ready for us and we didn't have to search for much. The queen beds were really nice, comfortable, and (most importantly) clean. The kitchen was in a central location though seemed a bit small at times. The living room and large screen TV came in handy when the weather turned rough and all the kids had to stay indoors. Having to walk thru the bunk room to get to the back bedroom was a bit 'wonky', but we made the most of it. The bathrooms were clean and had plenty of towels. We grilled every night which made our social time nice. The pier was great. The surface planks were new and safe (for the kids). The main light at the end of the pier attracted a lot of fish (though I wish there were a 2nd light on the other side). We made use of the kayaks - which were easy to launch and recover. ... I can't give the property a 5th star because there were some things that didn't work well. It was a bit difficult to figure out how to use the outlets on the pier. The yard has ants and we bought some ant dust which cleared the problem. Half of the grill area wouldn't stay up so I couldn't cook on it. The only tub was not in the main house which made bathing the young children difficult. ... But all in all, it was a great weekend where friends could gather and talk and socialize while the kids could run around. We would definitely consider returning to this property in the future. Hope this review helps.

Tree Frogs, Geckos, Trout, and a Buck!!!

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful property is full of life! Our boys really enjoyed catching (and releasing) tree frogs and geckos, especially after a good rain. We caught black drum and trout, sometimes two-at-a-time (use double-hook glow worms), and almost got in a nice size flounder. When we woke up early the day of our departure, there was a buck staring at us through the window!!! He wandered off as we began to make noise, but it was really cool for our whole family to see. If you want a place to get away for a weekend or week, this is the place to go!

Owner's Response: Leah, yes we have a lot of wildlife on the property since we have 7 acres of mostly undeveloped land. The buck in the day light is a surprise although I have come across him in the golf cart at night. Thanks for choosing to stay with us and we hope that you return soon.
