About the property

Cozy & Cute Cottage near the Bay and Town!

Our cute little cottage made it through Hurricane Harvey with just a few bumps and bruises and now she's back and better than ever! New roof and more importantly, brand new floors and a fresh coat of paint. Still just as cozy as ever and ready for guests!

This colorful home is anything but plain-jane and is only 2 blocks from the water. Near a walking/bike trail on Water Street and old downtown in a quiet and safe neighborhood.

There's a large front porch to enjoy the bay breezes, complete with rocking chairs. Large living room and dining room combo with an additional smaller sitting room in the front of the house. Fully-equipped vintage-style kitchen has everything you need, but you're on vacation so why would you cook? Well, if the urge should strike you, there is everything you need to make a great meal, including the essential corkscrew! Off the back porch is a laundry room with full washer and dryer to wash away the beach sand.

The master bedroom has a pillow-top queen bed and 2nd bedroom has two twins, so four sleep very comfortably. There's also a pull-out sofa in the living room, which is okay for kids or adults who are willing to try it! The bright and colorful bathroom has a large stand-alone shower (no tub) and definitely says 'coastal'. Plenty of soft, fluffy towels will make you even more comfortable.

The Cottage is located in South Rockport, near Cove Harbor Marina and just a couple of minutes away from Little Bay and the Rockport Beach. Also only a mile away from old downtown Rockport with great shopping, the Maritime Museum, the Rockport Marina, Rockport Center for the Arts, Bay Education Center, and more, often including Market Days or special events at the Fairgrounds.

The Cottage is everything you need to enjoy your stay in Rockport and feel right at home. We know you'll love it!

About Lisa Hernandez

Hi, we're Andy & Lisa! We live at the Texas Coast and chose it because of the great weather, great fishing, and great friends. We also love to travel and we've used VRBO for years as renters. Now it's our turn to share our part of the world with new friends through VRBO and HomeAway. We hope to see you in Rockport soon!

Why Lisa Hernandez chose Rockport

This Cottage is an older home with all its charm and quirkiness. It's located in South Rockport, close to both the water and town and to the owners as well!

Guestbook comments from the owner

As guests of Andy & Lisa's, we were the first guests at the Cottage. It is even more adorable in person and the queen bed is very comfortable. We had everything we needed and more. The house is set up to accommodate a full family with plenty of towels, cookware, etc. I hope it's rented often, but I'm also hoping it will be available for our next visit to Rockport because we loved it!

Love little cottage an easy walk to the water

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was very clean, number one in my book. Loved sitting on the front porch rocking chairs in the morning with my cup of tea. There was plenty of room, kitchen was well equipped, bed was comfy and the bathroom was nice. I would definitely stay there again. Rockport looked great, lots of businesses opened. Had some great meals at Paradise Key, Glow and Cheryl's. The water was beautiful, drove over to Padre Island the beach and water was lovely. Nice to see the community rebuilding. Go visit.

A nice week-end retreat

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is so cute. It is a lot bigger than I thought. We were comfy with four adults and a dog. Only two blocks to the waterfront and a short drive to everything. Nice breezes on the front porch in the evening. Lisa was very responsive to all of our questions.

The Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed here multiple times. The cottage is a great vacation home for families and or a romantic getaway for two. Lisa and Andy have redone the floors beautifully. The cottage is centrally located. Biking to the pier for some late night fishing or just a stroll to the shops. The cottage is clean with all the necessities of making your home for a vacation.
