About Ben Marek

I recently bought the home on April 1, 2013. I grew up in San Antonio but as a kid I spent a lot of time in the Rockport area with my Mom, Dad, and two sisters. We used to stay at Hunts Castle and eat at the Duck Inn and The Big Fisherman.I love being around the water, the beautiful sunsets, and the great fishing. I always dreamed of one day owning a home on the water. When I saw the house the pier was only 360' and I knew this was the home for me. After reading all the great reviews that were posted on VRBO from all the renters of what fun they and their friends and family had at the home and all the great fish they caught at the pier, I decided to leave it as a rental property but to update it to make your time here more enjoyable and your stay here more memorable. I rebuilt the whole pier and decks and extended it to 800 feet I installed four green stadium lights, three lighted fish cleaning stations, and two dock areas to park your boat. I also added a new barbeque pit, out door furniture with a picnic table. I updated the inside with new TV's, windows, doors, and other amenities to make your stay more pleasant.

Welcome to my home and thank you for being my guest.

Why Ben Marek chose Texas Gulf Coast

My home is located on the shores of Copano Bay just a few miles from downtown Rockport. Rockport is very close to Corpus Christi for shopping and travel. But the main reason I chose this home is for the great fishing.

What makes this house unique

The 800 foot lighted private pier offers great fishing day and night. It has four green stadium lights, three lighted fish cleaning area, and two areas to dock your boat. For the ladies, lots of shopping in Rockport. For those wanting a day of deep sea fishing , it's just a short drive over to Port Aransas.

family fun

  • 5 of 5

The pier was really the best! We caught maybe 100 to 150 trout in 3 nights. We had a great time. The house is comfortable and the owner was nice to work with.

Perfect vacation

  • 5 of 5

7-30 to 8-1, let me start by saying the photos on the web don't do any justice, this place was awesome, beautiful decor, perfect layout for a large family. The owner always answered his phone when ever any questions I had came up.

Very pleased with this house.

  • 5 of 5

The property was nice and clean. The only complaint was the dishwasher was broken, but the owner did not know. I called and he would have had someone out the next day except they were booked due to the holiday.

We caught sharks, catfish, and a couple of very large crabs. I would have liked more luck fishing. We saw dolphins our last morning. Overall it was very relaxing and we will be back!

Great house to spread out. Comfortable beds and a great dock, greatest longest dock on the bay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed a week and had the most fun and relaxing vacation. Caught more fish (and a shark) than we ever have in the other places we have stayed prior. Air blows cold in the house and the beds were very comfortable. Owner sells some lures for trout and they bite a lot at night. Daytime fishing on the bottom mostly caught catfish but did indeed caught a four foot black tip shark. Need proper gear for this but proved they are out there and you can get em! House is very spacious and allowed for the 8 of us to have plenty of space. Owner Ben very receptive to calls and text and was very concerned that we had a great time. Dock is long and has two platforms to fish from so that large group doesn't have to be on top of one another. Each platform has fish station, brightly lit both on the platform and in the water. All platforms had rod holders built into floor. Be prepared, it's a about a 2.5 minute walk to get to the end of the dock but oooh the walk is worth it cause that's where the fish were. Will definitely stay here again. Charcoal BBQ pit and all pots and pans and towels were on site. Thanks Ben.
