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 upscale 3-bedroom, 3 bathroom bayfront 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.

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
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.
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.
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.
We arrived at this lovely home, and were delighted . You have a ' dumb waiter' which is a real asset in getting unloaded and settled. Upon entering this lovely spot, you see a huge and yet cozy " large room", lovely and extra large kitchen, and great laundry room. It was spotless ! ( and I had offered) to pay extra for cleaning porches , etc. NOT NECESSARY , Camille has it in ' ship shape condition'. As they say " it is all location, location, location". This lovely home has it all, the intercostal with it's Las Vegas entertainment, and on the other side , the quiet and lovely canal. Plus, it is so close to Rockport, dining places, grocery store, etc. And...at night the Great Blue Heron, Boynton, arrives and puts on a show fishing off the pier. I am a retired librarian, wanted to write a story, thus I named him Boynton. We will DEFINITELY return to this wonderful home. Paradise , is not at all an exaggeration. And, Camille is a complete delight to be associated with.
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.
From the moment we arrived the home was all we expected and more. The dumb waiter worked well to bring in baggage and groceries. The main floor was clean and the layout made the week very enjoyable. We caught all the fish we wanted off the dock and every night the dolphins would come in and put on a show. The boats and barges coming right past the dock just added to the wonderful views. The location was close to all the sites we toured and the private tour of the King Ranch we took was incredible and we would highly recommend it. Looking forward to coming back in the future.
Our stay was wonderful. Three generations enjoyed fishing off the dock during the day and at night. This house has everything you need and Camille is just a text or phone call away if you need to communicate with her. We have stayed here 3 times and the minute we leave we start planning for next year. It is so calming to sit on either the front or back deck and watch boats or barges go by. You will NOT be disappointed if you rent this house!
We love staying here. We feel right at home. We have been staying here at least once a year since 2008, I think. This property is clean & well maintained (inside & out). The recent renovations makes it even more spectacular. Having the dock out back makes it so easy for friends to stop by when they're out on the water. The fishing off the said dock/pier is great. We've caught dinner several times. There is a resident great blue heron and a snowy white egret that visit daily. Such fun. You would not be disappointed should you choose this wonderful home to rent.
This is our third time staying in this home, and we just love it! The added bathroom downstairs came in handy on those late night fishing excursions. Can't wait to come back!
