Overview

Property Details

Updated: Nov 17, 2014
House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 4 Sleeps

Fish off your own private lighted pier in our backyard and watch the fish swim in the underwater light. Or just sit

on the deck and watch the sunset.

Our home sits right on Copano Bay - not on a canal - not a 'bay

view" - not 'bay access". Right on the bay. There is a huge deck on

the bayside with a picnic table and a covered porch. This is the

perfect family fishing destination - it just doesn't get easier and

more fun. Available for short term rentals as well as monthly for Winter Texans.

You have your own private lighted fishing pier right in the

backyard - all to yourself with benches, two separate platforms and

a covered cleaning station with power and water. You have a 1500w

high intensity fishing light which really can bring in the fish at

night! Access two private boat ramps right in the neighborhood and

you are located right on the water and in the heart of some the best

saltwater fishing in the state.

Come sit on our deck and watch the dolphins play! Drink coffee in

the shade every morning and toast the sunset over the bay every

night. Catch redfish, trout, flounder and blue crab from your pier.

Watch the majestic blue herons hunting right in your own backyard.

The palm trees, the fishing, the view, and the soft air of the Gulf

Coast will delight you.

Rockport is also know as a birding destination. Here's a brief of the first 6 months of the Rockport Calendar of Birds:

January- whooping cranes, sandhill cranes, snow geese, snowy and piping plovers, American Avocet and Marled Godwit

February- Harris's Hawk, cranes, Great Kiskadee, Green Jay, Cactus Wren

March-American Golden Plover, Sandpipers, Eared Grebe, hummingbirds

April- broad winged Hawks, Mississippi Kites, warblers, vireos, thrashers, buntings, raptors

May- over 140 species can be expected including warblers, tanager and more

June- Cassin's, White tailed Hawk, Crested Cracara, Greater Roadrunner, Ladder backed woodpeckers, Scissor-tailed flycatchers

Our home has a fully equipped kitchen, dining area and living room

with cable TV. There are two bedrooms and two baths. The bedrooms

have queen sized beds and the house sleeps four comfortably. All

cooking utensils are provided as well as bed linens. Bring food,

clothes, towels and personal items and get ready to relax!

Rockport is the saltwater fishing and birding capital of the Texas

Gulf Coast.

Just 45 minutes from Port Aransas and Corpus Christi,

and an hour from Padre Island, Rockport is a wonderful getaway.

Located on the Live Oak peninsula, Rockport is a haven of ancient

oak trees surrounded by water on three sides. Rockport is also home

to a thriving art community, and along with Fulton, a treasure trove

of old Texas history.

Redfish Retreat is in the Holiday Beach neighborhood, located on the

northeast shore of beautiful Copano Bay on Lamar Peninsula. We are

just across the Copano causeway from Rockport and Fulton on highway

35. The drive to town takes about 13 minutes. By boat you are just a

mile or so by water from famed Turtle Pen Point.

The water is 3-4 feet deep at our pier's end, perfect for bay

fishing, and boating - but no diving in! Copano bay is perfect for

fishing, but for swimming you have plenty of nearby beaches to

choose from. The Gulf of Mexico is 45 minutes away on Mustang Island

at Port Aransas, with Padre Island National Seashore a little

further. Rockport has a shallow, calm sandy beach right in town and

it's the state's only Blue Wave Beach. It's perfect for smaller

children since there is no current or surf.

You can catch your own dinner here - redfish, trout, flounder as

well as shrimp and blue crab can be found right off the pier. Or,

you can drive into Rockport, Fulton, Aransas Pass or even Corpus

Christi for the freshest seafood around. Try the harbor in Fulton

first, there's nothing like buying your shrimp right off the boat!

Copano Bay is a nursery bay, and is permanently closed to shrimp

boats throughout the year. As a result, the water is clearer, the

fish more plentiful, and the fishing can be fantastic!

2nd visit ...

  • 5 of 5
I just finished my 2nd visit to Redfish Retreat and had great time. The house is awesome, well stocked, and clean. The fishing was very good ... a few speckled trout, a redfish, several sheepshead, and a variety of other fish. The sunsets were perfect. Bring your fishing gear and your camera. Thanks for the relaxing 3 days.

Wonderful Time for a Returning Soldier

  • 5 of 5
Brought my brother and his wife for a well deserved fishing trip. He returned home in May from his fifth deployment to Afghanistan. Not only was he able to rest, but got to catch up on some much needed fishing. Of course, it got exciting Saturday night when we were able to watch all of our favorite football teams play. As usual, the house is well equipped, beautifully furnished and has everything you need. This is the second time we have stayed at a house through this owner. Her other home is just as great. Thank you for a wonderful time in this home.

Relaxing, Fun, Fishing Experience!

  • 5 of 5
The Redfish Retreat was the perfect little vacation spot for my family! My young boys had a great time netting crabs and small fish in the rocky areas just off of the back yard. We loved the beautiful view from the pier and the convenience of bay fishing right from the house. We caught a variety of fish including speckled trout, sand trout, black drum, and numerous other small fish and crabs. The kitchen included all necessary items to have a nice, home-cooked meal. The space was clean and expectations were very easy to understand. The home was just the right distance from town so that amenities were close, and we still felt a great deal of privacy in the small neighborhood.

Everything and More

  • 5 of 5
There is a reason this vacation home has excellent reviews-- it's everything it is said to be and then you get more. When we arrived, we were very happy with the landscaping, the views of the bay, the decks.. and then we went inside the home. It is welcoming, very clean, and stocked good. The beds are comfy and the kitchen contained everything I needed. We caught fish (some keepers!), had coffee in the morning on the top deck and a glass of wine watching the sun set.. We took our Grandson to Corpus Christi to the State Aquarium, saw different things around the area and, of course, had great seafood. Try Charlotte Plummer's- fresh and delicious. We love Rockport but this was the first time we tried a private home. I feel like we found a gem in this home and I can't wait to get back.
