About Brian Schneider

We live 45 minutes away from the property and have enjoyed the region all of our lives. Our children are in high school and college and we have no problem talking them into spending time with us in Key Allegro.

This is our only vacation home and we intend to spend many happy years enjoying friends and family on the Canal.

When that inevitable issue arises you will be dealing with the owners, not an unattached agent. If it is broken, we want it fixed - we might be the very next vacationers in the home.

Brian Schneider purchased this house in 2014

Why Brian Schneider chose Rockport

We have always enjoyed gulf and all that it offers. We looked very closely at properties in the surrounding beach towns but all too often found that lifestyle too congested to relax. Key Allegro is an upscale bay front living development that has a limited number of homes that ensures a slower pace but is very convenient to all of the activity of the local beaches.

What makes this house unique

You will love the comfort and amenities. If we haven't thought of it, drop us a line and I bet it will be there for your next stay. Enjoy and relax.

A great canal house rental!

  • 5 of 5

We just left the Coastal Crab today and were truly sad to go!

This house sits on the canal around many other homes, but we experienced very little noise from any neighbors. It's a great location for getting our boat into the bay.

The house itself was tidy and welcoming although, like most coastal homes, it's beginning to show some signs of wear and tear (ie deck planks loose & rusting on balcony railing).

Having two separate living areas was nice as it allowed the adults to sit upstairs & the teenagers to hang out downstairs. The only negative was there is no "common bathroom"... Although 3 full baths, they are all located inside the bedrooms which made it a little tricky for the people in the 4th bedroom to use restroom late at night or early morning...

Kitchen nicely stocked and well laid out. Spent a LOT of time cooking and hanging out in kitchen/dining area. Beds are comfortable & there were plenty of extra pillows and blankets.

Our highlights were the use of the kayaks, bikes and crab traps. We caught 8 huge blue crabs over course of 3 days which was fun for the kids. We steamed them on our last night there & they were delicious. While kayaking in the canal & out towards bay we were greeted each morning by a dolphin that would swim right in front of you. It even came down into the canal late at night and was feeding on the fish attracted to the green light off the deck. Was a thrill for the kids (and adults) to experience.

We enjoyed excellent weather and fishing was great in the bay. The fish cleaning station is a nice plus as we were able to take fish straight from cleaning station to grill. The deck has plenty of seating & a hammock that was used by many over the long weekend.

Overall, we had a wonderful relaxing weekend & felt the house was the perfect choice for our group. The owner is easily accessible when there is a question or issue. I highly recommend this charming home & hope to visit again!

Absolutely loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the Coastal Crab! The kitchen was well-stocked and was our favorite room in the house. The decks in the back were a blast to hang out on at night.

Beds were comfy too.

We'll be back!

A lovely home, but there were issues

  • 3 of 5

First of all, this is not a house for you if you have problems with your knees. When I read there were bedrooms upstairs, I did not understand that the kitchen and main living room were also upstairs. The downstairs, where you enter, is a daylight basement, more or less. The house itself is lovely, but there was a shocking lapse in the housekeeping. There were dirty dishes in the cupboards, dead (and live) cockroaches, a blanket with blood on it, cds and movies not where they should be, broken audio-video equipment, a dirty refrigerator, dirty windows, and more. I contacted the owners about everything, and they did put roach bait out, but it was still icky. About half the bulbs in the house were out or missing. Only a few were replaced.

The air conditioning and other appliances worked great. The beds were comfortable. This is a very nice house, and I'd like to think it was a lapse. But there was at least 20 things wrong that clearly should not have been. I'd likely try another place should I come back to Rockport. If it were my house, I would have refunded a bit or given the tenants a gift certificate or something. But none of that happened.

Owner's Response: This was a very unfortunate occurrence. During this vacationers stay we made sure we sent out our handyman twice to address some items found (specifically items broken or missing from previous guests). We immediately addressed the cleanliness issue with our cleaning crew because this was the very first complaint received over our three year ownership. This resulted in a change in our cleaning arrangement that appeared to becoming a little lackadaisical. We have taken all of the suggestions to heart and we are confident that our home will meet your expectations. Thank you for considering the Coastal Crab.

Amazing Property

  • 5 of 5

We've been vacationing in Rockport for years but this was the first time to rent a home in Key Allegro. The "Costal Crab" was simply amazing. Plenty of room for everyone without feeling crowded. The property was well maintained and had all the comforts of home. The kayaks and paddle boards were a blast for the entire family. Will definitely recommend this rental to anyone going to Rockport.

Wow! What a great house! There were 6 of us for a girls weekend. We spent most of the weekend on the fabulous dock, but the house was fully stocked with anything you would need for an activity-filled weekend (fishing poles and bikes among other things.) The house was impeccably clean and well appointed and the beds were really comfortable.The location was great (right on the canal) and was close to dining and shopping. I highly recommend and can't wait to go back!
