Rockport House Rental Photos and Description
House: 4 Bedrooms + Den with 4.5 Baths (Sleeps 16)
This family-friendly luxury 4 bedroom/4.5 bath home is truly exceptional! Located on a prestigious private drive on Key Allegro Island, this special place provides a quiet comfortable retreat where you and your family and friends can relax and play. Enjoy fishing from our new private pier in Aransas Bay across from your front door. Dock your boat in the canal behind the house where the kids can swim. Or hire a local guide to take you fishing in the many nearby bays or the Gulf of Mexico. Sip your morning coffee on the pier or our benches 10 feet from the edge of the bay beside our large bronze sailfish, or in the palm garden just outside the living room. Savor sunsets from the 2nd story front balcony or the large back porch. Snuggle up in front of the fireplace. Soak up the serenity from inside this well-lit and airy home with vaulted ceilings and large glass windows both front and back! Dine out at one of many outstanding nearby restaurants or cook in using the large, well-appointed kitchen with island and bars on both sides. If you want to stay at one of the nicest properties on the Texas Gulf Coast, this is is the house for you! I look forward to hearing from you.

Why Paul Hudson chose Rockport
We owned a smaller house in Rockport since 1979 and have always loved the atmosphere of the town. Key Allegro is the most vibrant community in Rockport and this house in particular is stunningly beautiful and comfortable – open and airy – it just has a wonderful feel. It was way above our price range, but once we saw it, we couldn’t live without it!
Guestbook comments from the owner
Comment from on-site guest book: "Had the most AMAZING time in Rockport this weekend! Your BEAUTIFUL home offered the perfect balance of comfort and entertainment for the entire family. SPECTACULAR VIEWS from every room in the house. The beautiful weather was perfect for enjoying the paddle boat & kayaks! We were entertained by dolphins at play multiple times throughout the day – it’s pretty incredible that you can watch them right from your living room window!! We enjoyed good eats of crab & crawfish at The Boiling Pot – yum! Thank you for (sharing) this lovely jewel with our family. We can hardly wait to visit again!"
