Located on Redfish Bay at Estes Flats/Intercoastal Waterway, This Waterfront Vacation Home has the best of both worlds with waterfront on both the front and back side of the property! While the Intercoastal Waterway (ICW) & Estes Flats are on the water side; there is also a canal on the street side with availability to dock your boat.

The house is on the bulkhead overlooking Estes Flats with full incredible bay views and sunrises as far as you can see!

Kokomo has all the fishing amenities: boat docking, huge fish cleaning station, two bright quartz lights shining on the water at night to attract the bay shrimp and subsequent trout’s and red’s. Dolphins can be spotted at times and the kids love watching them along with the barge traffic that passes by multiple times a day. It’s amazing what passes through our waterways.

This vacation home has 6 bedrooms with 9 beds & 3 ½ baths. This home will sleep up to 17 people comfortably. Two bedrooms upstairs share a Jack-n-Jill bathroom with a shower and double sink vanity they are Aruba (master) with 1 King (a Pac-n-play is located in this closet), 1 queen and a single couch that makes out into a twin are located in Key Largo opposite the master. Jamaica, is the third bedroom upstairs with a queen bed, a twin over full bunk that also has a trundle below. There is another full bathroom with a walk in shower and double sink, located behind the kitchen.

Bermuda, Bahama and Montego bedrooms are located downstairs. Each of these rooms has a queen bed. Montego, the bedroom under the kitchen, has a 1/2 bath. Bermuda and Bahamas share a Jack-N-Jill bathroom with a combo tub/shower and a double sink vanity.

For your laundry needs a washer & dryer along with detergent are available as well.

Full water views that go on forever, great breezes and direct access to Estes Flats, Aransas Bay and the Gulf of Mexico at Port Aransas make this an unforgettable family getaway or a fisherman paradise.

About Marvin Albright

We love the water and everything to do with it. Family is our top priority and we have been revitalizing this property to make your families stay not only fun and comfortable but an unforgetable experience that will make you look forward to returning year after year.

Marvin Albright purchased this house in 2014

Why Marvin Albright chose Palm Harbor

Kokomo is a Texas tropical inspired get away from it all. This property is great for family or group gathering's. There is plenty of room to play together and space to separate for some quiet time. Sitting or swimming on the bay side with the breeze cooling your sun warmed skin creates a tranquil environment you can loose yourself in. An eight person hot tub is located next to the one of a kind patio with a fire pit and 3 two person porch swings.

You can also lounge on the ICW watching the boat & barge traffic. Some days the water is clear enough to watch the fish and sting rays swimming up to the bulk head; what a super site to see. Although the kids will love when a dolphin swims by, they do scare the fish away that people are trying to catch.

Enjoy the soft breeze at night in the hot tub overlooking Estes Flats. When the moon is full and shining across the bay, it is spectacular; worth planning a stay during a full moon.

What makes this house unique

Bring your boat, kayak's, personal watercraft and other water transportation. The bay is just around the corner from the dock and the ramp is north about two miles at Cove Harbor.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Love the ease of fishing, watching dolphins play 10 feet away, crab catching all night. We will be back!

A fabulous stay!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had our annual reunion here and all enjoyed themselves. Caught a few keepers out by the fish cleaning area. It was a war between the young ones on how many perch they could bring in. But caught trout and a small red. The house met (and exceeded) our expectations. Want to stay there again.....

Great family gathering spot!

Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us! This was a perfect spot for the birthday boy. A fisherman's dream!

Owner's Response: Happy Birthday to your son. We hope you caught some fish during your stay as well. Of course the day after you leave they came by and completed the little things left for the pool to be as automatic as possible. We hope we can serve you in the future and the next time the pool will be ready for you. Also thank you for taking such good care of our home.

Impressive But Not Perfect

  • 4 of 5

The owners impressed me with their willingness to make everything perfect, but I guess the previous guests didn't have time to bring up the shortcomings with the owners. I expect that my list of small annoyances will probably surprise them. I predict that they will try hard to follow up on what I'll tell them.

Owner's Response: Your list was very helpful. We have different people available to fix things that come up. Without notification, we can't have it fixed. I truly appreciate your letting me know. All things were taken care of before the next group checked in. Renters like you help me maintain a quality experience. Thank you. By the way, we are fortunate that Hurricane Harveys visit spared our home, but took out many homes in our neighborhood.

Great family fishing reunion at Kokomo!

  • 5 of 5

The large "Kokomo" house is in a great location, extremely comfortable, and everything is in perfect working condition and very modern. The kitchen is super-stocked making cooking all meals for our large family convenient. 12-14 people can spread out inside, or out around the multiple patios, decks, firepit, and hot tub. Fishing was fun day or night, due to the great lighting from the bulkhead and cleaning station. The owners made it very easy to check in and out, and we can't wait to book again!
