About the property

As featured in the May 2016 issue of Texas Monthly, this newly ,constructed home sits on the beautiful canals of Key Allegro. With the finest touches of taste and class, this French inspired coastal home is the most luxurious stay you will find on the island. With some of the best views on the water, Curlew Casa has something for everyone.

Along the private waterfront deck, you will find a private boat slip and fish cleaning area. Step up from the water and take a dip in the gorgeously designed pool. Eight lounge chairs and four umbrellas surround the pool for the ultimate relaxing stay. Feel free to use the three kayaks for a morning ride through the canals or cruise out to Little Bay for a great view of the island. There is also a ping pong table set up and ready for play.

For the colder months, also enjoy the hot tub and fire pit that is surrounded by six chairs.

Right off of the pool, you will find an outdoor kitchen with refrigerator and commercial ice maker for your enjoyment. A few feet away, step into the outdoor living area with a 70 inch flat screen tv. Downstairs also includes two bedrooms with queen beds in each and an adjoining bathroom. Across the hall, you will find the Bunk Room that sleeps four and has its own private bath.

Take the spiral staircase upstairs to find the masterfully designed living area. Not a detail missed, this house is truly spectacular. Windows line the living room, bar, kitchen and dining area for some of the best views around.

Upstairs you will also find the Master Bedroom and large Master Bath with His and Her Sinks and separate vanity. Bedroom #2 is also located upstairs. With two queen beds, this room will sleep 4 people and also has a bathroom.

Step out of the sliding glass doors and you're on the upstairs terrace, which includes additional lounge space and outdoor dining with seating for twelve.

This house is spectacular and can't be missed! Great for families, extended vacationers, and anyone who wants a truly luxurious vacation with all of the finest!

Truly Amazing - Family Dream

  • 5 of 5

We stayed there over the long weekend and had an incredible time. It's better than the pictures. No detail left out from plush beds and lines, to soap and candles, all home cookware is top of the line. Highly recommended this house.

Outstanding rental property!

  • 5 of 5

Breakfast on the balcony, lunch overlooking the "lagoon", and cocktails dockside - that's what you can experience at the Casa Curlew!! It was fantastic! Every possible amenity a family my enjoy- provided! We swam, caught fish off the dock, and prepared most of our meals in the professionally appointed kitchen. Our new family saying - " if you aren't having fun, it's YOUR fault"!! Come experience it ,you won't regret it!

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

My family enjoyed our time at Curlew Casa. Plenty of room for our boat and very easy for everyone to board from the deck. We spent most of our time in the outdoor living area and relaxing in the pool! The vacation home had everything we needed for maximum comfort! We have stayed at many rentals but this one by far tops all others, we were very happy and will book again! Thanks from your South Texas friends!

Curlew Casa is a lovely home, however I will not be renting again. I rented the home for a week; on Monday we got a knock on the door of a delivery service dropping off a BBQ grill, I spoke to the owner of the home via the delivery man’s phone and was told they are dropping off the grill and then some other people will come by to set it up, my uncle had to help the delivery man unload the grill from the semi-truck as he had no other help, later the people showed up to work on grill and traipsed thru the backyard unannounced. I was notified by the owner that she needed to come by the house to view the front porch because she plans to expand the living room at some point, asking "if that is okay?", I felt like I was in no position to deny her to come to her own home, but was very taken aback that she would even request to come by when the house is occupied by renters. A couple of days later we received another knock on the door by 3 women who quickly let themselves in the door, stating "can we look around, asking questions about the home and how we like it, requesting to "peek in the rooms" because they have thought about renting the house." Their request to "peek in the house" was denied. That particular situation seemed rather odd and intrusive as the address of curlew casa is not listed on the VRBO website. One day, while kayaking a boat passed us with the owner of the home as a passenger, the boat went in front of curlew casa several times. These odd and unexpected series of events left my family and I feeling as though we were being "watched", we paid premium price to rent Curlew Casa for a week and didn't appreciate the chores of taking care of delivered items and inconvenient visits by the owner. Whether these situations are intentional or coincidental it left a bad taste in our mouth and left us questioning our decision to have rented the home. Furthermore, it would have been convenient to have instructions for the TV’s, lights, when pool boy was coming, yard man was coming, etc.

Owner's Response: The feeling is mutual !!! I rate all my renters and rated y'all as never again !!!!! I apologize for the inconvenience of the BBQ pit being delivered during your stay ! It had been ordered for 6 weeks and I had no control over that ! I let you know that they said it was coming that day and would you please let me know when it comes and I would have my handy man come inload it and put it in the side yard and get it out of your way ! I just finished building a really nice built in BBQ pit that will be so much better for myself and all my renters ! Again I apologize for the horrible Inconveniece of needing to meet a contractor on my exterior front porch for maybe 5 to 10 min max ! One of your relatives was very nice and came outside and talked to me about the porch and said how much she enjoyed studying out there ! I asked if Katie was home because I wanted to be friendly and meet her and she said she was in the kitchen and she never came out to say hello which I thought was very rude!!! Most of my renters always text me and tell me if I am down in Rockport with friends during their stay for me to come over and meet them so we can get to know each other ! It is my personal vacation home and I want to build up a base of really great renters that will come back every year! I have no clue who the 3 ladies where that came to my house and I am glad that you did not let them in! I come down with friends all the time to Rockport and we go canal cruising like everyone does in Key Alegro and again I apologize if it just happened to be when y'all were out kayaking and the reason you have to go by the house twice is because The canals are dead end and there is no way you can just go by once !! If you were not doing something that you shouldn't be doing then why would you feel so weird about me coming by in a canal cruise with friends enjoying the beautiful sunset!!! The TV is so easy to operate by pushing a remote that I didn't know it needed instructions but will put that down on my already big sheet of owner info about the house ! I already have labeled the lights but it really was not that big a deal to have to turn on an extra switch to see which light is where? I do not have a yard man! The only good piece of advice in this whole review is that I could add to my owner info sheet that the pool guy comes on Thursdays usually but sometimes Friday and I never know what time because Rockapulco is very laid back and that's why I love it so much!!!!!!

Better than a "Home Away From Home"

  • 5 of 5

Susanne, thank you for an absolutely fabulous vacation at your beautiful home in Key Allegro. My family and I truly had an over the top experience, in large part due to your impeccably appointed resort style home. From the moment we walked through the door and saw the views out back, we were in awe as we continued our tour. In addition to the amazing design and furnishings, you have thought of every detail, need or want that a guest in your home could ask for. This place has it all: views, breeze, pool, hot tub, decks, piers, fishing, kayaks, grill, etc...

With five beautiful bedrooms, multiple indoor and outdoor sitting areas, state of the art kitchen, bars and a ping pong table, there was something for everyone. Its the kind of place that just makes you feel good and you don't want to leave.

We look forward to returning sooner rather than later.

Thanks Again,

D Graham
