Overview

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

Beautiful bay-front vacation home with 'million dollar' views and PRIVATE FISHING PIER WITH HUGE LIGHT Located DIRECTLY on the intracoastal waterway and the best fishing spot in Texas, Redfish Bay/Estes Flats. This home is in the beautiful, quiet subdivision of Bahia Bay, only minutes from historic, downtown Rockport, the famous Rockport Blue Wave Beach and Port Aransas.

Our 3-bedroom, 3 bathroom bay-front home will comfortably accommodate a family, but it’s also perfect for four couples traveling together, or as a romantic and extra-spacious getaway for two.

Experience the amazing panoramic sunrises and sunsets of this charming home on property that is positioned between TWO waterways: a backyard that faces gorgeous Redfish Bay/Estes Flats, home to the best trout and redfish fishing the Texas Gulf Coast has to offer, and a front yard that faces a scenic canal. Sit on comfortable outdoor funiture on both the upper and lower decks and view the bay/intracoastal waterway that harbors plenty of dolphin and hundreds of birds. No other vacation home can offer its guests such amazing, peaceful views!

You will also be able to fish, boat, sail, kayak, or ski off your own private, lighted pier! Clean your catch in your own fishing stand, and cook your fish, including redfish, trout, catfish, flounder, etc., on a charcoal grill day and/or night.

Decorated with quality furnishings and fixtures, this home's beautiful hardwood floors span the kitchen and living area. The three bedrooms are lushly carpeted and the two baths and separate utility room with washer and dryer are tiled. Accommodations include a custom-built open-concept kitchen, dining and living area combined. The modern kitchen has a large circular breakfast bar and the dining area has a dining table, each seating 6. A dumbwaiter conveniently carries groceries and/or luggage from the garage up to the main floor for you. And the living area has a huge 65' cable TV with DVD player!

Also incuded are a huge master bedroom with 1 king-size and 1 queen-size bed and TV, a private, luxurious master bath with built-in storage drawers, bathtub, large two-person shower with double shower heads, and walk-in closet. The other two guest bedrooms each have comfortable queen-size beds, closets, and plenty of windows! We also have a new downstairs bathroom for convenient access off the bay front.

Are you needing to access the internet during your stay? Free Wi-Fi is included! Do you or your family enjoy going to the beach? If so, you'll be only minutes away from the beach in Rockport - the famous 'blue wave' beach on the bay, and 10 minutes to the ferry that will take you to Port Aransas - where you can enjoy the beach on the Gulf of Mexico.

Select this home for your next vacation with friends or family, or as a romantic get-away, to relax, enjoy the water, and just have fun!

About Camille Hudson

I grew up living on the coast and my husband enjoys observing wildlife, so we picked Rockport as a place to work in 2002. It took us two years to find the perfect lot on which to build. Its close proximity to the intra coastal canal provided the feeling of living on the ocean. We were also able to enjoy great fishing year round, see plenty of amazing birds and dolphins, and watch tug boats, sailboats, motorboats on a continuous basis. Our whole family loved visiting us. When our son-in-law came to visit, he would come to bed after fishing all night, just as we were getting up for breakfast! When we had to move to another city a few years later, we just couldn’t sell this house. We hope you’ll enjoy all that it and Rockport has to offer just as we continue to do.

Camille Hudson purchased this house in 2004

Why Camille Hudson chose Texas Gulf Coast

We chose this house for its location. Being positioned directly next to the INTRACOASTAL WATERWAY and across from a canal, it offers beautiful panoramic views from both the front and back. Being able to watch the boats going back and forth and the birds flying overhead is so relaxing. And the sunrises and sunsets are to die for! The sounds that come from the bay are so soothing - there is nothing like the sound of a tug boat pulling at its horn as it slowly goes by at sundown. We also love being able to fish on our own pier any time during the day or night when we want to do so.

What makes this house unique

Some of the house's unique benefits are its 1) close proximity to the intracoastal waterway and, therefore, EXCELLENT FISHING, 2) private, lighted pier with fish cleaning stand, 3)gorgeous panoramic views in front and back, 4)open layout of the house, custom-built features, and quality furnishings and fixtures, 5) 65' tv set with cable, 6) and Wi-Fi!. 7) Downstairs bathroom for easy access off the bay front. We built the house to live in when my husband practiced medicine in Rockport, so it's not your typical vacation home.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our stay at your Rockport home the month of Nov. 2010.



We found it very clean and well equipped, the view is to die for, lots of birds, dolphins, boats and barges.



My grand kids fished your pier till the wee hours of the morning, caught a ton of small trout they threw back, but every night they would get 3-4 keepers. I fished Aransas Bay mostly, limited on trout and reds a couple of times, never got skunked.



The dumb waiter is a life saver when your our age, not having to tote  all our gear and groceries up the stairs was wonderful.



Having 2 driveways is nice, my wife and I were there alone most of the time, but we had guests a couple of weekends and our family came for Thanksgiving. Everyone could park off the street.



Thanks again and hope to see you next year.

Very Happy Stay!

  • 4 of 5

Our family had a great vacation the week of October 16, 2009. The pictures on line are very accurate regarding location and layout. The accommodations and amenities listed in the description were correct; the home was very clean, overall a beautiful home. We had a great time watching the birds, all the fishermen, and boats of all kind going past the house. The only problem was the lighting over the dinner table and that was temporarily solved by the rental agent. The kitchen was great; we had all our meals at the house, no need to go out. We had a very good time.

Owner's Response: We fixed the light over the dinner table by putting new bulbs in the fixture! Can't believe all five bulbs went out at the same time!

Great modern home with lots of conveniences.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed the beautiful home and backyard fishing pier. The dumb waiter was especially appreciated to easily move our food stuffs into the 2nd level of the house.

The views from both front and back were wonderful and we throughly enjoyed a relaxing stay.

As good as it gets

  • 5 of 5

This was our 10th stay over the years and it gets better! A new Beachy bathroom added to the first floor. Upgrades to the art and TV's the last two stays. View of the canal out the front and Inter-coastal canal in the back yard; caught 20 keeper trouts including a 7 pounder. Caught my bait in the morning and fished at night under the fishing lights. Located between Rockport and Aransas Pass and both the Rockport and Port Aransas beaches were clean and fun as usual. We didn't want to leave; also found some good new restaurants including The Butter Churn for good home cooking in Aransas Pass. I hope the house is available for the long term as we try to stay at least once a year.

201 Ocean Drive, Rockport, Texas

  • 4 of 5

We loved the house and it worked perfect for all the parties in our group. The kitchen was perfect for all of us to move around in, the open living room, the views from the front and through the back were gorgeous, and the master bathroom was wonderful. The negatives were the upstairs patio was too small, the wind was pretty strong at night on this bay, and the construction that was going on around the area of the house on both sides was pretty disturbing most mornings. Wish we could have known about that beforehand and thought it deserved a discount on the price because of it. Loved that I could communicate with the homeowner with any questions I had during our stay. Thank you for opening up your beautiful home to us!

Owner's Response: We are so glad that you loved the house, its amenities, and you enjoyed your stay. We also are happy that you appreciated the quick responses to all of your questions. With regard to the small "patio" on the back of the house, we want to make sure our guests know that it's a walkway with stairs leading to the ground. I recently purchased 3 tall comfortable chairs and put them there to allow guests to enjoy the view. That may have given you the idea that it is a patio :) The new incredible multimillion $ house next door is in its final stages. They are working a little on the inside. We love looking at it and are so thrilled to have almost a whole lot between it and our house so there is plenty of privacy!

Another great summer family vacation. The new renovations are nice. The bathroom downstairs is really useful. Lots of fish under the lights at night.
