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 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 and an underwater 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. Our home has a fully equipped kitchen, dining area and living room with cable TV and wireless internet. There are two bedrooms and two baths. The master bedroom has a king and guest room has king sized bed. The house sleeps 4-6 comfortably. There are 2 twin beds in the breakfast area. 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. Rockport is the fishing and birding capital of the Texas Gulf Coast. Close to Corpus Christi and Port Aransas, warm tropical breezes from the Gulf of Mexico in summer and mild temperatures in winter make Rockport, Texas your perfect year-round vacation spot. Annual events within the Rockport/Fulton area include: Fulton Oysterfest, Rockport Art Festival, Fiesta en La Playa, Hummingbird Celebration, Rockport Seafair, and Christmas Celebration or Lights. The Rockport area is world famous for birding, first class fishing, whooping crane tours, kayak adventures, dolphin watching. Enjoy the serenity of the view and water at Redfish Retreat, yet it's appx 15 minutes drive to most anywhere in Rockport. 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! If you don't catch your own, you can drive into town, over to Aransas Pass or down to Corpus Christi for some of the freshest seafood around. 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!More

So glad you had a good time. I totally agree. Sometimes the fish are there and sometimes not. Just as long as I am comfortable and relaxing it is fine. We really enjoy the sounds of the water and the palm leaves in the wind...More
