Palm Harbor House Rental Photos and Description

Located on the 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.

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.

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 Rockport

Kokomo is a Texas tropical inspired get away from it all. This property is great for large family or group gathering's. There is plenty of room to play together and space to separate for some quiet time. Sitting on the bay side in a lounge chair with the breeze cooling your sun warmed skin creats 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. One of the enjoyable, relaxing places on the property.

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

average rating of 5.0 based on 27 reviews

Beautiful location, Perfect house, Everything you need, Right on the water, 5 stars fo sure!

  • 5 of 5

I hosted a fishing trip with some some clients Sep 8 - 10, 2016 and I chose Komomo after looking at all of the available vacation renters from Rockport to Port Aransas, which would comfortably sleep 8 guys in separate beds. 6 of us ended up going and we all had our own bedroom. It was a perfect set up for us. We had fishing guides lined up out of Aranasas Pass so it was very close & convenient. We had our catch cooked up at Crab-In (which does a great job) and it was only 5 minutes away. We fished off the back yard in the evening. My wife and I own our own high end vacation rental on Lake Travis in Austin and are very picky. This place had everything you needed / wanted, all the way down to the welcome cookies. :-) Marvin called the evening before to see if we had any questions. He gave great advise on where to eat the first evening, Paradise Key, which was 5 minutes away and had good food, drinks and a great vacation atmosphere. and he told us how to catch trout off the back of the property. We really enjoyed our couple days there and highly recommend this place! I will definitely be back with my family and some friends, and with more clients next year!

Boys getaway

  • 5 of 5

Awesome facility! The house was outstanding in every area. The appliances were very nice and modern. The house layout was perfect. The view was excellent and the location was perfect for us. I'd definitely book this place again. Oh yea - the fishing off the bulkhead was a riot. The lights and cleaning station were excellent. Love this place!

This was a boys trip - the booking isn't under my name but I wanted to make sure there was a review expressing how impressed we all were. 6 Guys - could have doubled the crew and still had plenty of room.

Absolutley Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 15 gathers each summer for a vacation. We have never found a better place than this. I can think of no summer rental where you can get up each morning and watch the sun rise over the bay in the back yard and then walk across the front yard and climb into your boat and go fishing. The accommodations were unbelievable and worked out perfect for our group. The young adults stayed and played games downstairs and the older parents and grandparents stayed and enjoyed the upstairs. The owners could not have been more gracious and helpful. We all had a great time and just might make Kokomo Waters an annual stay for us.

Top notch rental

  • 5 of 5

For many years, my family and friends have an annual fishing trip. Since we are spread all over the country, we take turns hosting this trip in different states. This year I hosted the trip in Rockport Texas.

Over the years, the group of people has grown and it has become increasingly difficult finding a place where everyone can be together in the same house. Kokomo Waters was able to accommodate our large party extremely comfortably.

The house is an excellent location and was built and furnished unlike any home we've ever rented. It is top notch, first class accommodations. The outdoor and indoor kitchens were very well equipped which was a pleasant surprise.

There was something for everyone to do and the age of our party varied from 8 - 65yrs old. Everyone felt at home while staying a Kokomo Waters. The kids loved catching fish off the bulkhead. The adults were able to play poker and take guided bay trips from a neighbor who is a guide. Everyone enjoyed playing corn hole or just sitting around the fire at night.

For those who did not like to fish, there were plenty of attractions within a short drive including Port Aransas beach and the Lexington in Corpus Christi.

I would highly recommend anyone interested in renting a top quality home for an enjoyable vacation to consider Kokomo Waters.

Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

We were reluctant to stay here because of the price, but I'm happy we decided to go through with it. The home is beautiful and fully stocked with anything you would need. We brought a lot of pans, bedding, etc and didn't need to use any of it. The home was large enough to accommodate us all and watching all the boats go by was nice. Thanks for the much needed getaway with our family. We all had an amazing time!
