About Danado Saltarelli

We purchased Casa Azul in Jan 2014 for its unique location on a small island with 3 sided water views. We added a boat dock to augment the private boat launch and added two more lighted fishing docks for 3 sided fishing. See you soon and God Bless!

Danado Saltarelli purchased this house in 2014

Why Danado Saltarelli chose Texas Gulf Coast

A very unique island property located at the tip of the island right on the water with spectacular views. Very private property with long gated drive with great fishing and close to the beach and all that Rockport has to offer.

Another very unique quality of this property is how it can work for a smaller group/budget by booking the upstairs or downstairs only for a reduced rate based on how many bedrooms/bathrooms/kitchens and Living Rooms are needed. As of March 1st, 2016 we will start offering the downstairs for rent as well. This will add a newly constructed 1 bedroom, 1 bath with full kitchen and living room that will sleep an additional 2-4 people. So rent upstairs or downstairs or both based on the size of your group!!! Regardless of how much of Casa Azul you need, Casa Azul will never be rented to more than 1 group at a time!! Pictures of downstairs are posted!!************

What makes this house unique

Located on the tip of an island which allows for privacy as well as beautiful water views and awesome fishing on 3 sides.

Great Spring Break Vacation Home for Families

  • 5 of 5

This property was absolutely wonderful. Very clean, well stocked, beautiful views and plenty of room for relaxation. We fished every day and some nights, even though we only caught a few keepers it was so much fun to just walk out your front door and drop a line. The kids had a great time watching the local ducks every day, they even named a pair that hung out around the house all the time (Bonnie & Clyde). We grilled out a couple of the nights and ate our meals outside which I think made it taste even better. We stayed in both the top and bottom areas as there were 8 of us, 6 adults and 2 children, but there was plenty of room to spread out. We would really recommend this property for families and friends to just get together and have fun and relax. It is a little far from everything but once you get use to the distance it is not that bad. There is a little barbeque place at the entrance to the subdivision which has really good food if you don't feel like cooking or driving into town. The owners are really easy to contact if you need anything but we did not need to contact them because everything we needed was right there.

Unbelievable Home!

  • 5 of 5

We have vacationed in Rockport now for the last two years in February. The home we rented last year was not available so we found the Casa Azul on the website and loved what we saw. It is only my husband and I and our 2 labs so we didn't need the whole house. The owners rented the main floor to us (as we did not want the stairs) and wow is it nice. Plus, they did not rent out the upper level while we were there so it was very private! It is smaller than the upstairs but it is very, very nice and plenty of room for us! It walked right out to the patio where we spent most of our time. We always had a couple lines in the water and with water on three sides, you could always fine a place to fish out of the wind if it was blowing. We did not hit the right time to catch a lot of fish (we did catch a few to eat) but we had a blast catching blue crabs off the docks and they are delicious!! This house was great for our two dogs! At the end of the driveway is a gate that you can close. We keep that closed while we where there so the dogs had a lot of room to run and play. This means a lot to us as we travel with our dogs everywhere. We would recommend this home to anyone as you will not be disappointed! We will definitely be back!

Owner's Response: We are so glad you had a great time, the ability to rent out the downstairs only or the upstairs only if your group is smaller is a unique feature of Casa Azul which boasts a full kitchen/living and dining both up and downstairs. Regardless if your needs are Big or small we only rent to one group at a time so the guests have full use of the 450 feet of waterfront and all the outdoor amenities. We look forward to having you back next year!

Where to begin, I've been told at the beginning is best. The internet lead us to Casa Azul. Casa Azul led us to Amelia and Donando Saltarelli which answered each and every question making our decision easy. Bottom line we decided to spend a month at Casa Azul. Beautiful home and beautiful owners. Instantly felt at home, the Saltarelli's felt like friends from the start. Clean clean clean was our priority and it was. Amelia made our first days special by bringing us some of her home cooking. She kept surprising us throughout the month. We enjoyed fishing from the house, didn't catch lots of keepers but caught lots for catch and release. The dock was great for the boat, just walk out and get in and take off, again not lots of keepers but lots and lots of catch and release. While setting outside we were blessed with ducks, pelicans, sea gulls and fish jumping all around us. The sunrises were beautiful. Wind got up, Donando was there to check on us and the house being all was ok. I guess by now you know we thought Amelia and Donando were the perfect host. Recommending wonderful places to eat, things to do and visit while we were there. Our favorite restaurant is "Latitudes" service was exceptional and food was excellent. Our trip sped by so fast we felt like we had just arrived when it was time for us leave. Definitely plan to come again. Thank you Amelia and Donando for making this the most memorable trip we've ever taken.
