vacation rental description

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!

traveler reviews for this rockport house rental

Relaxing, Fun, Fishing Experience!

Review submitted: July 19, 2013   Date of arrival: July 15, 2013

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.

Recommended for: age 55+, families with young children, families with teenagers, romantic getaway

Everything and More

Review submitted: July 1, 2013   Date of arrival: June 23, 2013

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.

Recommended for: age 55+, sight seeing, romantic getaway

Owners response: Thank you Carolyn. I am glad you had a good time and enjoyed your stay at Redfish Retreat. Please do come again. I don't know if you checked out Rockport but it as a lot of fun shops in the tourist area (Austin Street)and it's beach is really nice too.
