Hello~ We are John & Malynda Williams. John just retired from OilField Construction and I retired May 2012 from Xerox- Kyle Office Products in Sales. Our careers took us many places in our 17+ years together and the Texas Gulf Coast was no exception. As a matter of fact, 7 years worth. In August 2008, John had a group fishing trip scheduled (of which he hooked a delicious AmberJack) so we decided it would be a great weekend getaway and perfect opportunity to visit our Cousins, Tim & Julita and their new home in Rockport. No sooner hugs were given, our Cousin Tim said, 'You too can Live like this!' Well, between John's successful fishing trip and my great memories & love for the ocean, we went house hunting. So, we said 'Y KNOT', a week later we signed a contract on our home in Aransas Pass. We bought a boat and of course we named it, 'Y KNOT!' Wanting to share this experience with others, In April & August 2010, we purchased two properties so we could do just that.
We are the 3rd owners of this 1964 home and it is filled with history. The first owners built it from the ground up and rebuilt it after Hurricane Celia with what they could gather. Viola, a 1 BD/1 Bath with a kitchen was now a happy home. In 2008, the wife had an Estate Sale, and the Second owners bought the house outright at the sale. Completely renovated and updated from electrical, plumbing, cedar siding, laminate wood & tile floors, new appliances, laundry room, 2nd Bath, 2nd bedroom, Central AC/HT, 10 ceiling fans, to name a few. Even with all the updates, this 1600 sq. ft. home is very well laid out with some personality from the 1960's. So, what are you waiting for, Y KNOT GetawaY? Thank you for visiting our listing, we hope you will consider our home for your next getaway. 'YOU TOO CAN LIVE LIKE THIS!' Kindest Regards, John & Ms. RED Williams
Malynda Williams purchased this house in 2010
Thank you Ms. RED for accomodating our last minute plans. Your home was neat and very spacious. The kitchen and the shady backyard over looking the water was my favorite. Of course my husband and children enjoyed fishing and swimming on the private dock. We will be back!
Thanks again- Kelly
The house was clean and tidy. Well stocked. The boat dock was an amazing feature that we used each morning and each evening.
It was hummingbird migration and the tree/bush outside with the pink flowers had an abundant amount of hummingbirds present all week.
The neighborhood was quiet and peaceful. The beds were comfortable, I took a nap on more than one bed. The couch's were very nice.
All in all our week long stay was so awesome, we hated to leave but we are confident we will be back. Shempy's, the best burger!, is right across the street. The Groove in nearby Fulton was fine dining at its best. The shops in Rockport were unique. The Texas Maritime Museum was very interesting and informative. Goose Island State Park and The Big Tree, over 1100 years old was a pleasant tour with numerous birding opportunities. Rosita's on Market street was the best Mexican food we tried. JJ's breakfast on Market street was also amazing, their homemade salsa is worth buying and taking home. And the fishing right out the back door was very good. Mangrove Snapper, Flounder, Redfish, trout, catfish and the two really big ones that got away!
Malynda was impressive from the first interaction, sending directions, checking on us after check in, and on check out to make sure their were no issues. In fact I guess one of the yard workers damaged a water line while cutting the grass but George showed up for YNot and politely knocked on the door and introduced himself and explained the repair process. When they were finished George gave me his card and said I could call anytime if there was another problem. The YNot family is completely professional and courteous. VRBO is the way to go and YNot is the leader in the VRBO experience.
We will use them again. After all YNot go with the best!
Bad pun I know but a true story.

The house was very clean and smelled great. The large fully stocked kitchen was great for cooking for the 11 of us. There are only 2 bedrooms, everyone else sleeps on the 2 hide-a-bed sofas in the living room as well as the trundle/day bed in the sun room. The back yard is fenced well (great for bringing your dog along.) with lots of clean outdoor seating to hang out outside. The concrete dock and fish cleaning station were of the best quality you can find in vacation rentals in the area. Lights and electrical plugs are located at the dock. If you bring a boat it's a straight shot from the dock out to open water and the inter costal. The house sits almost exactly half way down the length of the canal. Only complaints I have is that a beer pong table is in no way a half size ping pong table and I found no horseshoes to play as listed in the description. Otherwise, the entire house was well stocked with plenty of towels and the kitchen has everything you could possibly need. The nearest boat ramp is about 5 miles north off HWY 35.
I had chalked this up to a 'lesson learned' on this place and moved on without reviewing it. Then I saw the owner recently gave me a poor review as a guest after I asked for a refund on the kayak! I complained that the smell of open sewage at the canal entrance at end of the street prevented us from enjoying the kayak. While she investigated immediately and determined it was technically not open sewage, she agreed the smell made her gag, as well. She refunded the 50$ for the kayak, but only after screaming at me on the phone. I wasn't going to review it, but here goes: no A/C for a day, ran out of toilet paper ('you shouldn't need more than 2 rolls'!), no pepper in the 'fully stocked' kitchen, no fishing gear, I assume she didn't refund my deposit, either, looking that up now. Not only am I not going back to Rockport because of this person, I'm never using VRBO again. Don't need the stress of people like her on my vacation, and I refuse to paddle through poo.
I would highly recommend this house to any of my friends and I will be visiting again. Malynda was very easy to get into contact with and made are stay very comfortable. I enjoyed drinking my coffee every morning out on the porch while I watched the fishing boats leave for the morning. Overall it was a great stay. Thank you dearly!
Nice property in a good location. We had a large group staying in two houses and this house worked great for us.
Our family vacation was wonderful. The house was perfect, plenty of room for everyone. Enjoyed sitting in the back yard BBQing while kids played and fished. Staying here you are minutes away from Rockport and Port Aransas. Can't wait until the next time.
