This home is updated and completely ready for guests to enjoy! Beautiful water-front home with 'million dollar' views and PRIVATE FISHING PIER WITH HUGE PIER LIGHT Located DIRECTLY ON THE WATER, 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 newly renovated 4-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 large upper decks and lower patio 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 fish, including redfish, trout, catfish, flounder, etc., on a charcoal grill day and/or night.

Decorated with beautiful new modern furnishings and fixtures, this home has 4 bedrooms and 3 full baths. The upstairs has a kitchen and dining area, a master bedroom, two guest rooms, two full baths, and a laundry room. The downstairs garage contains a large bunk-room and full bath.

Upstairs accommodations also include a custom-built open-concept kitchen with the latest amenities and dining/living area combined with a 65” large cable smart TV. The kitchen has a large island/circular breakfast bar and dining table. A dumbwaiter conveniently carries groceries and/or luggage from the garage up to the main floor. The upstairs huge master bedroom with TV has a king and queen bed, an adjoining luxurious master bath with built-in storage, a large shower with double shower heads, and a walk-in closet and private toilet area. The other two guest bedrooms each have comfortable queen-size beds, TVs, closets, and plenty of windows!

In addition, this house boasts unique downstairs accommodations that include a bunk room with TV, dual AC/Heating, 4 XL full-sized bunk beds, and a full bath. This arrangement allows for convenient access off the water/pier after late night fishing or is ideal for the enjoyment of kids/grandkids!

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 Rockport

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 modern features, and quality furnishings and fixtures, 5) TV in every room with cable, 6) and Wi-Fi!. 7) Downstairs bathroom for easy access off the bay front. 8.) NEWLY INSTALLED DOWNSTAIRS BUNK ROOM with Dual Air, 4 FULL XL beds equipped with TV. Great for late night fishing or teenagers! 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.

Immaculate and stunning

  • 5 of 5

I've rented a lot of places like this but this one by far was the best. Not only is the property and views amazing but it was the attention to details that makes this place amazing. All the amenities from beds to showers and kitchen are top of the line and it shows. The one true thing that made this our best stay yet, was being able to always get a hold of the owner if we ever had any question. Overall if your looking to have some great family memories, THIS IS THE PLACE.

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!

Beautiful Ocean Front home

  • 5 of 5

Had a great weekend here...Home looks newly renovated and is beautiful and immaculate on the inside. The view never gets old. Loved sitting on the deck watching the boats and barges go by just in front of the fishing pier.
