About Ben Marek

I recently bought the home on April 1, 2013. I grew up in San Antonio but as a kid I spent a lot of time in the Rockport area with my Mom, Dad, and two sisters. We used to stay at Hunts Castle and eat at the Duck Inn and The Big Fisherman.I love being around the water, the beautiful sunsets, and the great fishing. I always dreamed of one day owning a home on the water. When I saw the house the pier was only 360' and I knew this was the home for me. After reading all the great reviews that were posted on VRBO from all the renters of what fun they and their friends and family had at the home and all the great fish they caught at the pier, I decided to leave it as a rental property but to update it to make your time here more enjoyable and your stay here more memorable. I rebuilt the whole pier and decks and extended it to 800 feet I installed four green stadium lights, three lighted fish cleaning stations, and two dock areas to park your boat. I also added a new barbeque pit, out door furniture with a picnic table. I updated the inside with new TV's, windows, doors, and other amenities to make your stay more pleasant.

Welcome to my home and thank you for being my guest.

Why Ben Marek chose Gulf Coast

My home is located on the shores of Copano Bay just a few miles from downtown Rockport. Rockport is very close to Corpus Christi for shopping and travel. But the main reason I chose this home is for the great fishing.

What makes this house unique

The 800 foot lighted private pier offers great fishing day and night. It has four green stadium lights, three lighted fish cleaning area, and two areas to dock your boat. For the ladies, lots of shopping in Rockport. For those wanting a day of deep sea fishing , it's just a short drive over to Port Aransas.

First of all, the pier at this house is the best by far at any Rockport rental property we have experienced. The house is very large with plenty of room and has everything you need. The girls loved the apartment downstairs. Ben was quick to answer any questions we had. Caught lots of fish and some nice keepers. Look forward to coming back soon. Highly recommend if you're looking for a great fishing getaway. Beautiful sunrises and sunsets can be seen from this place also.

Luxury Pier

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at this house with some friends over a three-day weekend and had a great time. The house was very clean and comfortable. The whole bottom floor is its own studio apartment, so our friends were able to have their own space. Of course, the best part of this property is the fishing pier. It is much longer than any pier in the neighborhood and has great lights for night fishing. It also has two fish cleaning stations which came in handy. We were able to catch some good-sized sheepshead and flounder. We would definitely love to return to this property in the future!

150 Ridge Harbor Drive

  • 5 of 5

This is a fantastic house with alot of room and slept my family of 12 with ease. I've rented 3 other houses in Rockport and this one was the best, much roomier, and had the best pier. The up and downstairs kitchen is really handy. We used them both. We caught Redfish right in front of the house during mid day and alot of trout at night under the lights at night. Its also in a very nice neighborhood to go for a jog or walk and not too far from town. I'll be renting this place again soon.

If ur not looking for five star, then this is the place for u. We arrived to find the grass 6-8" tall, trash can full of trash, cobwebs on light fixtures, dead cockroaches throughout the place. The place is not maintained well at all. The furniture and carpet are filthy. Light bulbs in house burned out, pier lights burned out.....If u like the 70's and 80's look, then u will love this place. Furniture, bedding, towels, kitchenware, etc are all outdated. Although the pier is the longest in the bay, it's useless because u catch nothing. The place just feels dirty and rundown. This place is not worth the money. I'm sorry, but I rent a lot of places in Copano Bay and this has to be the worst one by far!! With a little updating & cleaning, it could be a beautiful place. I really wish I could be nicer but I have to be truthful so no one else has this experience.

Owner's Response: All of The pier fishing lights do work the only lights that made not all come on at night time are the deck lights that are solar and needs the direct sunlight during the day on each of them as for my home it is very clean and its exterminated every 3 months to keep bugs out . The house keeper cleans and washes all the sheets pillow cases dishes mops and dust and cleans through out the home and replaces all of the plug ins . If light bulbs in the home are out I have a maintenance man and a yard man that maintains the yard you arrived on Thursday and the lawn was cut the next day Friday if you had a problem at your arrival you should have called and I would have made sure things were taken care of to your satisfaction all of my guest have my cell number to call if there is a problem when they check in You also were told no pets allowed you brought a small dog with you . I should have terminated your stay when you check in . Of all my reviews in the past 5 years you are the only one that has complained ...
