Peaceful and Relaxing

My husband and I, with another couple we invited, spent a wonderful time at this quiet, peaceful, and relaxing place: Pelican Roost. We were here on a three-day weekend. Since the weather was a bit drizzly, we were able to truly enjoy the house and its extensive amenities. It was exactly as described.
We used the two upper in-suite bedrooms which I thought were very nice looking. Each one has it’s own theme that was incorporated into the ocean/water motif of overall décor. They’re located on each side of the big room, giving everyone a sense of privacy while sharing the amenities found in the big room. We enjoyed our morning coffee on the upper deck, facing the canal, and would watch the ducks glide by. It became our favorite area, since we also had our after dinner drinks watching the stars when possible. Didn’t see many boats, probably because of the rainy weather.
The Pelican Roost had everything a renter would wish to have available. Almost like being at home. We had a great working BBQ; very good TV reception, I’m going to assume cable, because we also had Wi-Fi with no problems connecting; lovely kitchen with everything you could possible need; great dining area; and much much more.
None of us four are fishing aficionados, so we didn’t have the experience that other people have had. Nevertheless, we saw some fish jumping up right in front of us on occasions. We caught up with of our reading, though.
We enjoyed the shopping once the weather allowed and walked up and down the main shopping area in Rockport, and played a few card games.
The owners were very nice and gracious, and I had no trouble in contacting them at all when the need arose, even though they were traveling themselves at the time. They truly have a great place and make you feel welcome.
We highly recommend Pelican Roost for Families with Teenagers, Couples Seeking Quiet and Romance, and even though we don’t fish, it looks like a great place to do so.
