You will love the property. Its a great vacation home. The house was designed and furnished to accommodate large groups, family, couples, and family groups. The home has accommodated numerous families as well as wedding parties, fishing groups, and college reunions. Its kid friendly yet completed in a grown up kinda way. Our cleaning crew are amazing and have thoughtfully kept the home in top shape. We have tried to include everything needed in a vacation rental. We want you to look forward to your visit, enjoy your time here…and make plans to come back soon! We have lots or repeat guests at Big Blue.

We have another vacation home in Port Aransas. Its a brand new 3 bedroom plus loft/4 bathroom beach home in Cinnamon Shore (Seafare at Cinnamon Shore) VRBO 640387. Check it out if you are interested in an amazing beach home.
We have been visiting Rockport for 40+ years. Copano Bay caught our attention many years ago. We have spent many hours designing and furnishing the home for all to enjoy. The home was completed in early 2013 and was listed for vacation rental for the first time in early June 2013.
Lory Johnson purchased this house in 2013
Big Blue on Copano Bay sits on a large lot (and now we own the vacant lot next door!). The lot fronts Copano Bay and directly across the street is Salt Lake. We can sit on any porch of the home and have an amazing view. Fishing and kayaking are awesome. The area is peaceful and the sunsets are amazing.

The 385' private lighted pier was completed in May 2013. It was the final touch to our bayfront home. Just after completion, a pod of dolphins hung around playing at the end of the pier. Super fun to watch!
I would rate your place as a 5-Star, my family and I had a great time, we enjoyed the beautiful weather. The fishing pier and lights provided all we needed as my family was fishing from 9am to late at night, we may not have caught any large fish, but just the experience of the fishing pier was great enough. The home is lovely, had everything that we needed. I don’t think I can go to any other home and find all of the amenities that your home has, it exceeded our expectations. I would recommend this place and have, to my friends and other family members. We would love to return to your rental property.
We just returned from another wonderful HomeAway vacation! We stayed at this beautiful home with my husband's parents. We had such a wonderful time here. The homeowners attention to details was perfect! We've been to Rockport several times and this was the best! We particularly enjoyed the wonderful, long pier and the kayaks. Also, the crab traps gave us a lot of crabs. It was truly a great experience and we highly recommend this property!
We had a grant time at Big Blue. The house was exceptionally clean and had a beautiful view of Copano Bay. Since we prepared all our meals, we could have used a couple more pots/skillets, but we improvised and all was well. You can tell Lory takes great pride in her lovely and spacious Copano home. Only two keepers were caught off the pier, but thanks to those two powerful green lights, we were kept busy catching many that had to be released. I would definitely recommend that you stay at Big Blue. The breezeway downstairs provided for pleasant afternoon conversation. Thank you Lory, for sharing your home and providing the necessary amenities needed.
Big Blue is absolutely amazing! This house is perfect in every way and the owners are exceptional!!!! The fishing on the pier is incredible! We caught 8 trout and they were ranging between 16" to 20"! You will lose track of time and find yourself fishing till 2am! LOL! I cannot wait to book Big Blue again as the place is spectacular in everyway - from the decor to the comfortable bedding, beautiful bay front view (which is perfect for morning coffee) and awesome LONG pier!!!!!! And I forgot to mention the Kayaks! They were so fun!!! Thank you Lory and Jeff for sharing your beautiful rental with us!!!!!! We will be back!!!!
Our second year to rent Big Blue and we could not have had a more peaceful and relaxing stay. This location is relatively close (20 minutes) to everything - Aransas Pass and the ferry, Rockport, Fulton, grocery, fishing, restaurants, sights. Easy to eat out and get back to relax and soak up the peace. Highlights - the sound system in the background, the view of the water and pier (didn't fish off the pier this year but will next year). Thanks for another great time in Rockport/Fulton. We'll reserve quickly for next year!
We had a great time fishing off the pier and the house was very comfortable. We would come back!
Lory, thanks for sharing your beautiful bayfront home with our family. Your communications throughout were outstanding. Everything was perfect and beyond our expectations! Although we were only there for 3-4 days, we took full advantage of everything: fishing off the pier day and night (catching plenty of fish for dinner...yum..yum); loved the convenience of the fish cleaning station!; cooking meals in your modern, spacious, fully equipped kitchen; launching the kayaks for fishing and exploring the area; grilling veggies outdoors to go along with the fish; sitting down for dinner in the dinning room as a family; chilling in the Adirondack chairs as we looked out on Copano Bay, without any worries as our 2 year old was well protected on the deck and in the yard with the wonderful fence; fabulous floor plan; fabulous amenities... I could go on and on... We can't thank you enough! We'll be back!
Private 385 foot T-head lighted pier w two 1500 watt green sport fishing lights. Pier also has a covered cabana area and kayak entrance ramp.
