About Paula Rowe - Owner and Property Manager

We are proud owners of 3 upscale vacation rentals in Rockport, Texas. We are custom home builders from Houston who decided to move to Rockport because we love it so much here. We saw a need for really nice vacation rentals so we built 3 of them and Bella Vista is number 3 in our collection.

Paula Rowe - Owner and Property Manager purchased this house in 2014

Why Paula Rowe - Owner and Property Manager chose Texas Gulf Coast

Gorgeous house in a fantastic location. Not built to be a rental but a custom waterfront home in a prime fishing location. Bella Vista has gorgeous water views and is in an area where there is a lot of wildlife due to the protected areas around it. You'll love how relaxing it is and that it is just a short trip into Rockport.

What makes this house unique

Upscale quality home right on the water with private lighted fishing dock and access to a boat ramp to launch your boat.

Fantastic property

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay. The property was exactly as it looks in the pictures and as described. We had to drive to the beach but the 10 minute drive was not bad. Catching blue crab from the patio was great! The owners were easy to deal with, always answered when we called and very pleasant.

Great family vacation, family enjoyed Bella Vista!

  • 5 of 5

Bella Vista was the perfect size house for our family. I think it perfectly fits 10, 12 would be a little tight, especially for adults. The grandchildren really enjoyed fishing off the dock, just enough fish biting to keep them happy until bedtime. Visited the community pool and was pleasantly surprised, a great pool for all ages. Only downside for us was the location, house is too nice for the area. Would visit again if couldn't find something comparable.

A beautiful, comfortable home in a quiet location with a great view down the canal to Copano Bay

  • 5 of 5

This home is clean, well maintained and beautifully decorated having updated amenities. The view from the deck looking down the canal out to Copano Bay is beautiful. The floor plan is conducive to allowing multiple families to have their own space. The property owners/managers were very helpful in providing information on places to see and restaurants to eat at. Fishing in the canal is accessed off the lower deck. We very much enjoyed our stay and hope to come back again.

Great House - Great Time

  • 5 of 5

Decided to take a last minute trip to Rockport. We've been here several times and this was one of our favorite trips. The location of the home was perfect and we loved not having to go far to the beach and to eat. We fished at the house and went out in our boat and while it was a little windy we were able to catch a good number of fish. The home was really very nice and decorated so pretty. Our beds were super comfortable which is a big deal to me. We cooked a couple meals at the house and had everything we needed. We'll be coming back to Rockport this summer for a longer stay and we plan on staying at this home again.

Fantastic Experience

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time to visit Rockport and we loved everything about it. This house was amazing. Looks to be brand new and furnished ver nicely. We were thrilled to be able to fish right off the back dock. We caught trout and drum from there. We rented kayaks and went just a little ways into the bay and each of my kids caught redfish that we had for dinner. Rockport has quite a few restaurants to choose from. They are all about 10 minutes from the house. We ate at Latitudes and had a really nice dinner. It is an art gallery too. We also shopped at Bay Window which is a beautiful shop. I loved our whole trip and plan on coming back very soon. Can't imagine there is a nicer house than this one to stay in. Owners were very nice and helpful. Thanks for letting us have this fantastic experience.

Nice house and beautiful views.

  • 4 of 5

The house was nice and roomy. The fishing was non existent if you are wanting that in your trip. The property managers checked in on us and were very nice. The house is a little remote so there are pluses and minuses. Plus quiet and serene. Minus is that it takes a bit to go eat or shop. Overall a great time with family and friends in a beautiful house.

Owner's Response: Hi Cody, Thanks for your sharing information about your stay. We are so glad you found the house to be beautiful and nice as we work very hard to make sure it is exceptional for all of our guests. We do agree that the views are great as the home is right on the water very close to the mouth of the bay. This home is located within the city of Rockport but not in the hustle and bustle of downtown. It's a 10 - 12 minute ride into town. Most of our guests really like that the house offers them a quiet and relaxing stay and that the location offers them so much wildlife to see. I'm sure you saw lots of ducks, blue herons and pelicans. I'm sorry that you did not have luck fishing this time around. The winds were pretty high for a few days causing fishing to be off in the whole area. We are not sure what bait you were using but lately they have been catching trout and drum at this house using live shrimp. The group after you actually did quite well. We wish you luck in your future fishing and hope to see you again soon. Sincerely, Paula and Ricky Rowe, Owners
