About Barbara Gremillion

Steve and I live in Driftwood, TX full time (home of the famous Salt Lick BBQ). We grew up in Houston and moved to Driftwood in 1981. Steve loves to fish and I love the water so we found Rockport. We built our home here in 2005 and added the apartment in 2013. Our family has created some nice memories here and look forward to sharing our home with you.

Barbara Gremillion purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Barbara Gremillion chose Texas Gulf Coast

We plan to retire to our Rockport home and decided it would be nice to have an apartment to rent for some additional income. Steve designed it so that visitors would feel the comforts of home.

What makes this apartment unique

We are on Salt Lake which is a protected cove off of Copano Bay. It's perfect for fishing, kayaking, or bird watching. We're in a quiet neighborhood setting, and a perfect retreat. Sometimes you can see dolphin playing in the lake.

February Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was pleasant. We caught a lot of fish from the dock behind the house. We caught redfish drum catfish croker and sand bass. Even got a number of persistent crab onto the dock. The last fishing day I caught a 17 and a 21 inch drum. In all it was a great time. The accommodations were very comfortable.

Great Water Front Property

  • 5 of 5

This is a perfect spot to be right on the water, a really quiet area, and close to town. My dog and I spent the Thanksgiving holiday here and really enjoyed our quiet laid back time and ate shrimp instead of turkey this year. Spent Saturday shopping downtown Rockport and walked along the waterfront where the boats and bait stands are located.

Had a really great time and definitely would return!

Very Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

This fit our needs perfectly! We loved going out back, casting a line out and BBQ'ing on the patio. Barbara the owner was always prompt and very friendly. Property has easy access to downtown and Rockport beach. We would recommend this property to our friends and family.

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was the perfect size & setup for my family of 4. It's in the perfect location, away from the traffic & busyness of downtown Rockport, but close enough to be convenient. Also about a 30 minute drive to Port A, go to Kody's for seafood!! The view from the dock at sunrise was GORGEOUS & the boys even caught a stingray from the dock. Barbara (homeowner) was a pleasure to communicate with, she was always available if I had any questions. We will definitely be staying here on our future trips!!

Rockport Beach

The City of Rockport has a park run beach with a salt water pool for swimming. The beach is great for small children because it's very shallow for quite a ways out. It won a blue water beach award which means it's one of the best beaches in Texas for children. They also run a swim & skate center which includes a diving/lap pool and kiddie pool. There are many things to enjoy in Rockport--fishing piers, many restaurants, Art Museum, Aquarium, Fulton Mansion, Historic Shopping District & more.
