About the Property

House, 7 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 22-25 w/kids)

NOTE -- Please give us an ACCURATE number of Adults and Children in your group. Our Listing states that we sleep / have beds for 25. That assumes some children in your group. Limit of beds for adults (including older teens) is about 18 including blow up and bottom bunks. If you bring more adults, you may have to provide additional bedding. We have beds for at least 25 (maybe more) that includes top bunks, cots, couches and/or fold-outs for kids. Also, we do not "Save Dates." First come - first served. We have lost significant money when saving dates and then parties back out.


Whether you are interested in birding, boating, fishing or simply watching the sun set, The Sunset Bay Escape has it! The Sunset Bay Escape is a 7 bedroom house located on Port Bay near Rockport, Texas. Port bay is a back bay off of Copano Bay in the Texas Coast with EXCELLENT fishing. We have caught over 40 fish in one evening off the fishing pier.

This house is not a canal home but a BAY home and fully equipped with EVERYTHING you might need for your stay. You need only bring you self, food and clothes. We provide everything else including all linens, towels, pans, dishes, etc. There are not 5 cups, glasses and plates here. There is PLENTY of good plate, pans and utensils. If something necessary is missing, let us know.

We are KID and PET FRIENDLY!!! We have 5 kids of our own and have tried to include all the things to keep the kids entertained.

When you are at The Sunset Bay Escape, if feels like you are a million miles from civilization, but you are only 8 minutes to a Super Walmart! You drive through a lot of ranch land and then, suddenly, you emerge in a Jewel of a place on a wonderful, isolated bay.

The Sunset Bay Escape is a luxurious three story house that has two full kitchens - one upstairs and one downstairs! It has a large Master Suite upstairs with an oversized tiled shower and large Jacuzzi tub. There are four bedrooms on the second floor with two being Masters and two more bedrooms on the ground floor. Enjoy our Five Large Flat-Screen TV’s and two Blu-Ray DVD players using our collection of DVDs. There is even a PS2 game system with games for the kids (or young at heart) to play. For the little ones, we have a play set out back.

Right out the back door is Port Bay and your own 300 foot lighted pier with direct access to the water. Port Bay is full of redfish, shark, trout, flounder, gafftops, whiting, croakers, sheepheads and drum. There is no commercial fishing in the Bay so fishing is GOOD! Kayaks/rafts and basic fishing gear provided as well as bright fishing lights on the pier. Don't forget to look for the dolphins!

Bring your boat! There is a boat launch very close by, and you can tie it up to our pier. Also, with your boat, you have easy access to Copano Bay, considered by all to have some of the best fishing on the Texas Coast! We now have a 18 ft. wide driveway so you can park on one side of the drive way and still get in and out on the other sire AND to accommodate larger vehicles and boats.

For the wildlife enthusiast, there is an abundance of wildlife in the area. You can see deer, raccoon, possum, turkey, rabbit and other wild animals.

For the birding enthusiast, this area is teaming with a large variety of bird species including Black-necked Stilts, Ibis, Rosette Spoonbills, Reddish Egrets, Gull and Tern species, Least Turns, Rails and Snipe, wintering Geese, Sandhill Cranes and White-tailed Hawks. You might even see endangered Pereghrine Falcons, Wood Storks or Brown Pelicans. There are a number of birding sites within a few miles of the house.

Rockport is a short drive away with a sandy beach, museums, shopping, and antiques. Port Aransas is also close by for a good day trip to the Gulf of Mexico.

Unfortunately, we do not allow 'Events' such as weddings or other large parties. Gatherings at the house are strictly limited to those guests staying at the house.

The Sunset Bay Escape is a Family Friendly location. No corporate retreats or other such gatherings allowed. We only allow Family Gatherings. All persons must be related by blood, marriage or other family connection as required by our HOA Rules.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: Timothy & Rosa Raub have five children and three grand children (as well as a wonderful son-in-law and daughter-in-law!). We live nearby on the Texas coast. Tim has a full time job and Rosa is the one who takes care of most of the property issues. You will also hear from our daughter, Beverly, a stay-at-home mom. You are not dealing with a big property management company but, rather, the actual owners. The Sunset Bay Escape is our house. We stay there every chance we get. We have equipped it the way we want it for our enjoyment and want you to enjoy it as much as we do!

Why the Owner Chose Rockport, TX, USA:
The Sunset Bay Escape is in a GEM of a location. The location near Rockport, Texas is one of the greatest, if not THE greatest places on the Texas Coast for getting away from it all. No Big Hotels, no houses squeezed together on top of one another. Water out the back door and pasture land out the front door. No street lights at night. Enjoy gazing at the stars in this unique location.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
One of the great things about the Sunset Bay Escape is that the closest neighbor is several hundred yards away. The house is quite isolated and even located on a cul-de-sac road. We are definitely off the beaten path and away from it all yet about 8 minutes from a Super Wal Mart!
