About Paula Rowe - Owner and Property Manager

We are proud owners of 3 upscale vacation rentals in Rockport, Texas. We are custom home builders from Houston who decided to move to Rockport because we love it so much here. We saw a need for really nice vacation rentals so we built 3 of them and Bella Vista is number 3 in our collection.

Paula Rowe - Owner and Property Manager purchased this house in 2014

Why Paula Rowe - Owner and Property Manager chose Rockport

Gorgeous house in a fantastic location. Not built to be a rental but a custom waterfront home in a prime fishing location. Bella Vista has gorgeous water views and is in an area where there is a lot of wildlife due to the protected areas around it. The location is excellent for fishing too. You'll love how relaxing it is and that it is just a short trip into Rockport.

What makes this house unique

Upscale quality home right on the water with private lighted fishing dock and access to a boat ramp to launch your boat.

Perfect Place for our Family - Highly Recommend

  • 5 of 5

We wanted to get away to a relaxing place for a long weekend since all of our family work in extremely stressful jobs. We picked Bella Vista in Rockport over several homes we looked at because it looked and sounded like just what we needed. It was perfect for our family of 12. Located right on the water with great views and a breeze that kept us cool even in 100 degree temperatures. We all love to fish and have taken up using kayaks as they are really easy to handle and you can get in some great fishing spots with them. The dock made it easy to launch our kayaks and we were just a minute from the bay. We caught our limit of trout in the two days we fished and several very nice redfish . My favorite activity was just hanging out in the downstairs area right by the water with the family. In the evenings the whole family got together and fished off the back dock and visited late into the night. We caught a lot of fish with my brother catching the biggest drum we have ever seen. The kids wanted to go to the beach and we found the Rockport beach to be very nice. It was only a 10 minute ride from the house and we wound up spending the whole day there. We ate out several times and we found the restaurants to be easy to get to. One of our favorites was the Fulton Seafood and Deli. They had excellent fried shrimp and a lot of variety on their menu. We had a big fish fry the night before we left and found that the kitchen had everything we needed to cook our meal. The owners came by when we checked in and gave us some tips about bait to use and restaurants to try. They were very nice and helpful and we appreciated knowing they were close by if we needed anything. We have only stayed in Rockport once before but this home and location were so much better than the place we stayed before. We will be back for sure.

Owner's Response: We are thrilled that you had such a great experience at our Bella Vista home. It is one of our most popular vacation homes and we think it is because of all the things you mentioned. The great water views, the breezes coming in downstairs to cool everyone off while they fish and enjoy each others company. The fishing has been really good there and out in the bay lately which is why my freezer is overloaded with fish. Of course the inside of the house is what really makes our guests super happy. Upscale décor, comfortable beds, very well stocked kitchen, cable, wifi and only a few minutes away from the beach, community pool and dining and shopping. We also get complemented frequently on how clean our homes are. This is one area where I think we truly outshine other rentals. We are the actual homeowners and we make sure our homes are properly cleaned and very well maintained. We are so glad your second stay in Rockport was such a success and especially happy that you will coming back to Bella Vista!

Lovely and peaceful getaway

  • 4 of 5

A getaway from everything. The house is kind of out by itself but yet HEB and the beach are just 10-14 minutes away- what else do you need.

Clean and welcoming home inside and outside. They even have crab traps for you to catch your family dinner!

We had a lovely time with our two children. My daughter caught 5-8 fish everyday we were there and 15 delicious crabs! Thank you for the memories!

Nice place and plenty of room

  • 4 of 5

We recently stayed 3 nights with a group of 9. The house is very nice, recently built. We had plenty of room! The only downfall was the location, mostly our fault for not researching the area. We were not close to the beach, which is where we wanted to be. Other than that, the owners were great and the neighbors never seemed to complain even though we were up until 5 am.

Owner's Response: Hi Tim, We are so glad that you and your group enjoyed our Bella Vista home so much. It is one of our most popular homes with premier water views and great fishing right off the dock located at the back of the home. This home is just 12 - 15 minutes from the Rockport Beach and the many dining and shopping options in Rockport. There are actually no homes in Rockport located right on the Rockport beach. Our homes here are right on the ocean or bays and many are on canals with great views of the ocean and bays. The VRBO/Homeaway listings do provide a "location map" on each listing that indicates where the homes are located. This would have been a great help to you and perhaps you can use it for future stays. We look forward to having you stay at one of our homes again in the near future. Regards, Paula Rowe, Owner/Property Manager Coastal Views Vacation Rentals, LLC

Fantastic property

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay. The property was exactly as it looks in the pictures and as described. We had to drive to the beach but the 10 minute drive was not bad. Catching blue crab from the patio was great! The owners were easy to deal with, always answered when we called and very pleasant.

Great family vacation, family enjoyed Bella Vista!

  • 5 of 5

Bella Vista was the perfect size house for our family. I think it perfectly fits 10, 12 would be a little tight, especially for adults. The grandchildren really enjoyed fishing off the dock, just enough fish biting to keep them happy until bedtime. Visited the community pool and was pleasantly surprised, a great pool for all ages. Only downside for us was the location, house is too nice for the area. Would visit again if couldn't find something comparable.
