Overview

Rockport House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 7-11)

This 1960s home in Rockport is ideal for a family vacation!

It is just a couple blocks away from shopping and the beach! If relaxation and fun is what you're looking for, then this is the perfect getaway home for you. Whether it is a weekend away, a week with family and friends, or a winter away to stay warm - this will fit your needs! HEB Grocery Store 1/2 block away, Bank & Drugstore across the street, McDonald's 1 1/2 block. No need to spend gas money driving, as everything is an easy walk away. That carport in the back is great for keeping your vehicle and/or boat out of the sun, rain, or other weather conditions. Large pet door in the laundry room allows pets to come in out of the weather without being in the rest of the house while their owners are away.

About William F Tompkins

I am a retired 'old coot' of a grandfather. I love having a morning cup of coffee in the back yard, just as the sun is coming up. I like an easy, slow walk, and enjoy letting my black lab 'load up' in HIS pickup and going for a swim, either at Canyon Lake (near where I live) or at the beach at Mustang Island - 30 minutes from the Rockport house. And, the grand-kids love going with him!

William F Tompkins purchased this house in 2009

Why William F Tompkins chose Rockport

Rockport is only 3 hours from Cibolo (suburb of San Antonio). I have been vacationing here since I was a youngster, travelling with my parents. Later I started bringing my kids, and then grandkids, too! Everybody has a dog or two, so that fenced backyard and large pet door entering the laundry room is very nice! We try to spend a week here just after school is out, and another just before school starts up - depending on our guests' desires.

Holiday with family

  • 4 of 5

The house was spacious and clean. It was well stocked with pots and pans for cooking. Great location. Pictures don't do it justice with regard to space, especially where the booths are and living area.

We rented this property so we could bring our fur-child. We will definitely stay here again! The property is conveniently located to the HEB, CVS, bank and Spanky's Liquor Store.

Just Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

This rental was perfect for our family of 7 plus our dogs! We will stay here again. The size is perfect, the Kitchen is well stocked,(bring your own sharp knifes) huge utility room which was perfect for storing our coolers and beach belongings, great outdoor accommodations as well! If you want to save some money and bring along your K-9 family members then do stay here. The drive to Port Aransas Public beach is not bad at all. 30-45mins with the wait for the ferry. Its the best beach around and my dogs enjoyed it lots. We stayed an extra day because we were loving so much we couldn't leave yet! Thank You to Bill for letting us use your house!

Fourth of July stay

  • 2 of 5

The location was very nice for 4th of July fireworks watching and for getting groceries easily, but the front door was extremely hard to lock and unlock, the smoke detectors kept going off because the batteries needed to be replaced ( they went off 3 times in the bunk bed bedroom one night, the last time at 4:30 a.m.), there were lots of dead roaches in the house, and simple supplies were very limited. For example, each bathroom had only one roll of bathroom tissue and we could not find any extra garbage bags so we had to make an extra grocery store trip to buy these necessities. I realize you do not want guests carrying off such supplies, but surely 1 extra roll of toilet paper for each bathroom and 1 extra trash bag would not impoverish you and would be very useful to guests who don't want to spend any more time at the HEB store than necessary. The space was nice though, and we enjoyed being close to the beach and not far from the shopping district.
