About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2-5)

After 5 years of operation, our guest house has been a success! Pelican Guest House is located on the 2nd floor of our home on Dolphin Canal. Guests will share a common entry way, but have private and secure access to their own lovely living quarters.

What makes our guest house UNIQUE, is that it is AFFORDABLE for 2-5 persons Our base rate is based on two adults. There is an additional charge per person per night. Therefore, if there are only 1 or 2 persons, you will not pay an exorbitant nightly rate for a rental that sleeps 8 or more as so many do. Most of our guests are birders, fishing enthusiasts, those wanting to explore the TX coast, ladies getaway, or those needing a quiet place for some well deserved R and R. The house is located on a quiet street and canal on Key Allegro with lots of opportunity to take walks and/or bike ride. You can rent kayaks, bring your own or dock your boat behind Jerry's sailboat.

We as owners, are generally around and available for questions and suggestions as well as if you forgotten something, we more than likely have it. Other than that, you will have complete privacy, coming and going and will feel like you are at home with all of the, bottled water, fully stocked kitchen, and lots of reading material.

The upstairs deck faces SOUTH. Why is this a KEY FACTOR when selecting a property? In the summer, the breeze is out of the south, so you will enjoy sitting out on the deck, down below fishing off the dock or swimming in the canal. In the winter when we get a norther that blows in, you will still be able to enjoy the deck, as you will be protected from the cold north wind. You can see both sunrises and sunsets from the deck, while enjoying coffee and/or cocktails.

(We do accept infants to 12 months and children over 10 years of age with their parent/guardian.)

We've decorated in Bright & Cheery Island colors. The 2 spacious bedrooms, The Blue Room & The Coral Room, have comfy queen-size beds and 2 full baths. (There's also a futon in the living room). The beautiful Ocean Blue kitchen, with it's large island and bar, has everything you need...just bring your groceries (or go to one of the many Rockport restaurants).

The open floor plan of the kitchen/living room/dining room allows plenty of space and places to sit & relax, or enjoy the wide screen cable TV, games, books, and WIFI.

Rockport is a perfect getaway place with quaint shops, art galleries, museums, an aquarium & restaurants. There is great fishing, bird-watching, or it is just a great place to kick back and relax! The Rockport /Fulton area also hosts many festivals and events throughout the year. We'll provide you with maps and info to make your visit complete.

Come stay at Pelican Guest House.... We know you'll want to return!

About Judi

I am a long time educator and hope to retire in the next year or two. Jerry is self employed and is also busy with several projects...mainly his sailboat! Most of the time we are around, but never 'in your space'. We enjoy our guests, but respect their need for privacy and a restful vacation.

Why Judi chose Rockport

Wonderful location with easy access to many events and conveniences. Rockport beach, aquariums, shops, museums, art galleries, birding areas are very close! Kayak rental available and they will deliver kayaks to you on our property.

What makes this house unique

You will relax and unwind. That's all I ever want to do when I go on vacation. However, there is lots see and explore in the Rockport/Fulton area.

A total vacation

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful place for a vacation of relaxation, terrific birding, swimming, kayaking, or just reading on the deck. The upstairs is open, airy, and very well equipped for eating in or just running in and out again. Judi and Jerry are fantastic hosts, aided by Mojito and Cowboy. Our 3rd time staying there and it just gets more and more enjoyable.

Everything was perfect! The beach house had everything we needed. It was very clean and well maintained. It was right on a channel so it was a wonderful to sit on the balcony and just relax. We enjoyed our stay very much.
