Overview

Rockport House Rental Photos and Description

Waterfront Home, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Great for a family vacation or an adult getaway! This fabulous home is located in Bahia Bay, a private community of water front homes. Bahia Bay is just a few minutes from downtown Rockport or the ferry that takes you to the beaches of Port Aransas. Fishermen love this area because of the quick access to bay and off-shore fishing. A 30' trout was caught in Estes Flats (just across the Intercoastal waterway) in May 2011.

This home includes a formal dining room with seating for six including crystal and china place settings. A man-cave/office (foldout couch w/queen sleeper), 1/2 bath and large living area that opens into the fully equipped kitchen and breakfast area.

There is a covered patio with outdoor furniture, an attached sun deck with table and chairs for outdoor dining and a rock patio for the BBQ grill or smoker (owner provided). Downstairs includes the master bedroom (king size bed) w/ an over-sized bathroom w/2 vanities, jacuzzi tub and separate shower; a utility room with washer, dryer & chest freezer for your fish. You'll also find beach chairs, towels and toys, along with fishing rods, reels, a tackle box, fish towels and a bait bucket.

Upstairs includes 2 large bedrooms (queen size bed in one & full size bed in the other) with a shared full bathroom. All bedding and towels are provided. Central htg/a. and ceiling fans throughout. There are also storm shutters on all windows and doors for your safety.

The over-sized garage includes a 1/2 bath, work space and roll-up door to the backyard & boat landing. There are 2 fish cleaning stations with lights and running water near the boat lift.

There is room for your bay boat, off-shore boat or sailboat. Fresh water to rinse your boat, motor & rods/reels. After a day at the beach, there is also an undercarriage fresh water rinse station on the auto-sprinkler in the driveway.

So pack your bags, rods & reels (or you can use ours), bring your boat and come on down to enjoy the good life - you know you deserve it!

The weather is always great. Spring and fall fishing is the best, and don't forget duck hunting in the winter. If you like solitude, walks on the beach in the winter, with a thermos of hot cocoa or coffee, is great.

We don't have seasonal rates, just reasonable rates all year - short term and long term rates are available.

We love it here and hope you will, too!

Blessings,

Shawn and Debbi White

About Debbi or Shawn White

We met in 1999. After living an hour away from each other and dating for 7 years, we decided we couldn't live without each other. We celebrated our 8th anniversary on August 11, 2014.

Debbi or Shawn White purchased this house in 2001

Why Debbi or Shawn White chose Rockport

Debbi's father built this custom home. It was her parents' retirement retreat.

What makes this house unique

Waterfront home on a canal in Bahia Bay - midway between the Rockport ski basin and the ferries to Port Aransas. Step out the backdoor, cross the yard and step into your docked boat - you can be fishing the bays in 5 minutes. Only a few minutes more and you'll be headed out the jetties to fish offshore. And finally, a great floor plan for 2 to 8 guests with plenty of room for everyone!

Great House

  • 5 of 5

Debbi,

This is a great place to spend a few days or a longer period of time as we did. The view from the patio and deck is fabulous. Great floor plan, spacious, bright and well furnished. We had an enjoyable time and look forward to our next stay. I hope everything was left to your expectations. We will stay in touch. Thanks again.

Wonderful house! Beyond expectations!

  • 5 of 5

This house was even nicer than we expected, with many amenities throughout and a very well stocked kitchen and laundry room. The house and the property are beautiful, comfortable and well maintained, with a nice protected porch in the back. The location on the canal afforded us a lovely view of Estes Flats as well as a pleasing view of the canal. The owners were very prompt, pleasant and helpful in responding to our various queries. We would recommend this house to our family and friends, and we plan to stay there again. We had a wonderful time! Thank you.

CAN'T SAY ENOUGH !! GREAT HOUSE !!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this fabulous vacation home for a week in August. It was so much nicer than the pictures show. And the owners , Debbi and Shawn were wonderful. It is beautifully decorated and very clean !! It contains everything you can imagine to make you feel right at home. We loved sitting on the patio everyday and evening. It was always shady with a very nice breeze. The home has a great layout with plenty of room. I just loved it !! Every bedroom, office and living area has a television. We did have some problems with our boat, so we took advantage and watched a dvd from their large collection.The master bedroom and bath were very roomy. I just loved the layout of these two rooms! The bed in the master bedroom was very comfortable. My sister and her husband also came, and stayed upstairs. She said the beds were very comfortable too .Debbi was a gracious host and was always available to answer any question by either phone or email. She was so very sweet !! They also must be dog lovers, because the house is dog friendly with a basket of toys. In fact, our small dog went straight to the basket and picked out a couple of them , just like they were hers. The neighbors across were very nice. As they had to leave the next day , and asked if we would like the rest of their live bait. My husband took them ( live piggy perch) , and in fact caught five trout. The other neighbors would always say hi or wave, but did not intrude on your privacy. All in all , we really had a great time, in a great home, with great owners and I hope we will be able to do it again !!

Owner's Response: Hi Kathy, Thank you so much for taking time to review your stay in our home. We are so happy that you enjoyed yourselves and we're especially happy that your pup enjoyed the dogs' "toy box"! We were also happy to hear that you enjoyed relaxing on the reclining furniture in the living room, while you watched movies and took refuge from the heat and wind. We hope you also took advantage of the popcorn in the pantry! And thank you again, for leaving our home spotless and completing my laundry chores. We can't wait to have you as our guests again! Blessings, Debbi & Shawn

Great Getaway Home

  • 5 of 5

We love staying here. It really feels like home. The house is lovely and so thoughtfully decorated, that you hate when it's time to leave.

There are so many extras, it s tough to mention them all. From a more than fully stocked kitchen and pantry, to all the appliances and cookware one could ever use, to books and movies and games, to fishing gear and beach gear. This home has it all!

I hope we have many more chances to visit here.

Owner's Response: Hi Elaine, We are so happy you and your guests returned this year. We hope you enjoyed your stay and spent your days relaxing and catching fish (with a little sightseeing and shopping mixed in). An extra thanks to Buck, for reporting that everything is in good working order and ready for the summer guests. You always leave our home spotless, so you are favorites and welcomed anytime. We look forward to your next visit! Blessings, Shawn and Debbi

Bahia Bay Stop Dreaming

  • 5 of 5

The house was beautiful, just as it was represented.The pictures don't do it justice. Our many thanks to the White family for sharing their vacation home with us. While in Rockport, you must visit the Rockport Aquarium. It is free to the public, donations accepted, and very informative. The best seafood restaurant, is just down the road, 1 mile north, at J.D.'s. The best fishing guide, Capt. Jay Nichols at "Just Add Water" guide service.
