Car: Recommended

Liveoak street runs North South. There are three houses to the corner shops on Market street. Market street is a main thorughfare which runs West East from Hwy 35 to the ocean front. Turn right onto Market from Hwy 35 if coming from Corpus Christi and then it's a right on Liveoak three short block before reaching the water. If coming from Houston, Dallas, or San Antonio you will probably come from the north on the Coastal Hwy 35 and when passing through Rockport Hwy 35 will veer right at the light instead of going through old downtown and then you should turn left at the next traffic light on Liveoak Street. After a few blocks and crossing Market street the house 622 S Liveoak St is on the left. On the opposite side of Liveoak street on the corner with Market street is Mac's barbecue restaurant. There are festivals throughout the year in Rockport. Its a quaint little town with lots of customs, culture, and local pride. In the entertainment center we have plenty of brochures about the area, services, and year round activities. Across the north channel from the private City beach is Key Allegro where expensive homes are found including a gated community where one of our country legends has a sea-side mansion. There is a Wellsfargo bank, McDonalds and a Sonic. Further along is a Walgreens, O'Rielly's Auto store, Ace Hardware, and an HEB. There are lots of birds and a new bird sanctuary can be found on the North side of the Walmart. The drive to them around the water front is a scenic joy. Sea birds can be found siting in the middle of the street alone or in pairs at different times during the year. It is a place you will enjoy.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: We believe you will like Rockport as much as we do. Its an exceptional little Texas Coast town. We are Christopher and Mercedes Anderson with two children Christopher 18 years of age at Texas A&M University, Corpus Christi on the Island from the Fall 2015, and Nicole 16 years of age (the little girl in the photo when we bought the place in 2003) who is in High School and loves and excels at dance. Our vacation rental has been a family project with everybody participating in the restoration of this Rockport vacation cottage. We continue to make updates and improvements each visit. The photos reflect updates through February 2016 with the addition of deck furniture on the backyard deck.

Why the Owner Chose Rockport, TX, USA:
When our children were little we camped on weekends all around South Texas. After a very wet season and super sized mosquitos to boot, we dropped into Rockport which we fell in love with and got interested in buying a small cabin in this picturesque little Texas Gulf Coast town. We finally tracked down our property in 2003 and began renovating and restoring it to help preserve the traditional historical charm of the Heritage district of Rockport. The City plans to begin work on a paved walking trail that will pass in front of our cottage. There is a bird reserve on both sides of the street just past Walmart north on old 35 through old downtown. (A 10 minute car trip is required)

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Rockport is a particularly beautiful and picturesque spot on the water with clean air and starry Texas nights. Silence is golden brings a peace at times that is healing to the spirit.There are small museums and art galleries in old downtown Rockport. The town is relaxing peaceful and there are many local things to keep you occupied and entertained. To the North is the sister city Fulton where there are additional restaurants and on the far side of the Rockport-Fulton community there is a small airport. Rockport is about 30 minutes north of Corpus Christi. One will want to come again and again to sample the peace and calm. Don't fail to take the free ferry across to Port Aransas. There are lots of attractions and local small towns. It is a great and practical base to explore the greater area. The Shrimpree Festival is 2nd weekend in June in Aransas Pass. 4th July Public Fireworks on the beach.
