This House is perfect! It was so clean, spacious, has all the amenities you need, right on the water, and has the most AMAZING views. You don't even need to step out the door to enjoy the water- the view from the living room/kitchen is enough! The kitchen is huge and has everything you need and more to make yourself at home. The owners have really thought of everything. You can tell they truly care about you having a comfortable and amazing trip which makes all the difference. The pool is the perfect size, with a large sunbathing step perfect for little ones to play on. There is plenty of room throughout the house and it really is designed and decorated impeccably. The location of the house is also perfect. It is right in the middle of gorgeous key allegro, right across from the beach, and a few minutes from shopping and restaurants. I can not wait to come back to this house- I have stayed in many houses in Rockport, but this one surpasses them all- found our new vacation spot!
We rented "Tara" for family the first half of the week, and for a company trip for employees the last half. While the air conditioning was working the morning before we arrived we found the fan motor had gone out when we arrived Saturday afternoon.
The home's book had a number to call for service and Val and Phil (the owners) were super responsive and willing to do whatever was necessary to get us cool again! Having rental owners that are accessible and responsive is priceless, and I appreciated their active involvement in process!
The home is open and comfortable, with 5 bed rooms and plenty of beds for all of my employees to have one without anyone bunking on a couch. There are 2 levels of deck with terrific views of the bay and lighted pier. There is a huge and very well equipped kitchen, and plenty of places for people to take a meal - both inside and on the decks. I love the fact that the home was designed to be durable and easy to clean, so there wasn't as much worry about tracking in sand, etc.
Now for a fishing report:
There were many trout caught by family and employees fishing popping corks under the lights with cut mullet and perch - most were under the 15" limit, but several were keepers. One afternoon, I landed a 28" redfish off the pier (the biggest one I'd ever caught to that point), and followed up that evening with a 37" redfish, and a new personal record - all in the same day.
The stay was great, and I can't say enough about the owners response to our unexpected cooling dilemma - thanks so much Val and Phil for allowing us to stay in your home, and taking such good care of us!
