About the property

Canal Front 4 Bedroom/3 Bath Home With Dock and Yard. Close to Beach/town Fun.

This unique, raised waterfront home is ideal for large families, romantic getaways, and boys' and girls' weekends away. A fenced yard, dock, and patios make the back yard the place to be. Wooden rocking chairs, two swinging hammock chairs, an outside dining table, and an upstairs outdoor living set up compliment the view perfectly.

Our home's main floor features a rounded master bedroom with a king size bed and adjoining full bathroom overlooking the water. A Jack and Jill bathroom connects a second bedroom with a queen bed and a third bedroom with a bunk bed and full size bed. The sunny and open living area is showcased by a newly renovated kitchen, large butcher block island, dining table for 10, queen sized sleeper sofa, and several chairs perfect for reading and relaxing.

Downstairs on the water level is the 'Cozy Coop' - an ideal kid room featuring two bunk beds, hardy stained concrete floors, and a newly added rain shower and bathroom. Inside the Cozy Coop closet is the full sized washer and dryer.

Coastal Sunrise is centrally located, but serene and peaceful. The atmosphere is fun and inviting, and you will instantly feel at home. Come fish, crab, relax in the sun, shop, hunt, and get some much needed R and R in our home away from home. Your guests will not even notice that they are not watching TV. Night fishing, shrimp boils, BBQs, roasting s'mores, puzzle making, card games, reading, socializing, and cooking with friends seem to fill the time often lost before the screen. We have celebrated many birthdays and holidays in Rockport and look forward to sharing our experiences with you.

HEB and Super Walmart have all of the supplies you could ever want. No trip to Rockport is complete without a stop at Tackle Town, Ace Hardware, and the Rockport Bakery. In addition, we are close to several drug and liquor stores. If you don't feel like cooking at home, try some of our many restaurants. Dolphin watching charters are close by in Fulton, and boat rentals are available at the front of the neighborhood. Numerous local fish and bait shops in the marinas make it fun to buy bait and dinner supplies. In season the jumbo shrimp are unbelievable. Be sure to pick up a sack of raw oysters from Alba's - great for eating raw, roasting, or baking.

Key Allegro subdivision features a neighborhood pool, waterfront dog walk, seawall and shelled beach, marina, restaurant, and bar. A key to enter the pool will be provided upon check in for $10.

When bringing your own boat, a public boat launch is minutes away at Rockport Beach. Entrance is free with the boat trailer. Day and yearly beach passes are available for purchase at the beach as well. Once launched, you can motor your boat from the beach into the left side of Key Allegro and down to our canal which is the last on the right before Little Bay funnels out into Big Bay. You will know you are at our canal, when you see the little fishing apartments on the right. Turn into that canal and we are approximately six to eight homes down on the right hand side. You can tie your boat off at our dock, but please do not operate the lift.

When planning your trip, be sure to check out the Rockport events. The town hosts a yearly sanctioned Art Festival, several artist and craft fairs, flea markets, holiday festivals, an oyster festival, wine tastings, and girls' shopping tours. Check the local web page for dates.

Please do not hesitate to contact the owner with any specific questions.

About Emily Fournier

Dave and I grew up in New Orleans, Louisiana, where we learned the art of hospitality and Southern charm. I studied Hotel and Restaurant Management at Boston University, and then earned my law degree from Tulane University. Dave majored in Real Estate Finance at the University of New Orleans after many fun years at LSU.

We moved to Austin, Texas in 2009. While we will always consider ourselves from N'Awlins, we have embraced Texas whole heartedly and love living in Austin. We have three beautiful and active boys who fill our days, warm our hearts, and bring joy to Rockport. In addition, we have two huge dogs, Cayenne - a chocolate lab, and Dixie - a golden retriever, both of whom cannot contain their excitement when we cross over the Fulton Bridge.

Emily Fournier purchased this house in 2011

Why Emily Fournier chose Rockport

We fell in love with this unique round house as soon as we saw it. It had not been loved or seen joy in years. We knew that with our vision and family fun, this undiscovered jewel would shine. It has truly become a part of whom we are.

We have declared it an electronics free zone from the minute we cross the bridge. The only electronics seen in our home are for music. From the minute we get up to the moment we lay down at night, we are outdoors and/or playing together. We spend as much time as we can in the summer in Rockport and try to make several return trips throughout the year. Gradually, we have learned that we love sharing our Rockport home almost as much as we enjoy being there. We want you to love it as much as we do.

What makes this house unique

When we first saw this house, all of the hurricane shutters were closed, and the windows were draped in curtains and blinds. After closing on the house, we ripped off all of the window coverings, and the sun poured in.

We love watching the sun dance across the floor in the day time and the unbelievable moonlight that shines in the evening. This home has called out to us and to many of our friends. As a result, friends tend to stay and leave us little tidbits on our walls and shelves. When you enter our living room, you will see a little bit of everyone who has ever visited Coastal Sunrise. We like that everyone who comes here feels like a part of the fabric of the home. Once you have been here, you will want to make yearly return trips. It will quickly become one of your traditions.

Purple Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This property was the perfect spot for our group of 6 adults and 6 older children! We comfortably spent our time relaxing & enjoying the area. We were easily able to prepare meals and eat together in the massive kitchen/dining area. The porches add extra areas to hang out. The house was perfectly stocked and did not disappoint. Charming, eclectic, and wonderful!

Perfect for Family Gathering

  • 5 of 5

This property was perfect for our family gathering. It was extremely comfortable, clean, provided everything we needed and in an excellent location. The water access was perfect for fishing right off the deck. I highly recommend this place for your next trip to Rockport. We plan to come back!

Wonderful House!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here during my wedding weekend. It was absolutely perfect. I went to 2 other properties in Rockport that my family also were renting and this location is by far, the best. Plenty of room, nice comfortable beds, and it had a great view. The kitchen was great and the huge island in the kitchen was basically a lifesaver with all the prepwork we needed to do for the wedding. Next time we come down to Rockport, we are definitely going to stay at this place again!

Car: necessary

Key Allegro is central to all that Rockport and Fulton have to offer. However, the view and relaxation will make you not want to leave the house. Whether you want dolphin watching, fishing, beaching, running or walking, you can do it within minutes of 39 Nassau.
