The Double-crested Cormorant is one of many large water birds that you can view from the back of this brand new 3 bedroom, 2 bath home. Situated on the T of a canal that leads out to Salt Lake and then Copano Bay, this home is perfect for kayakers, boaters, or for just fishing from the dock. A private boat ramp is on the property and there is room to tie up your boat behind the house. The large deck offers beautiful water views, cool breezes, and fishing in the canal with the underwater green light.
Inside you will find bamboo floors and tile counter tops. The living room, dining room, and kitchen all look out over the water through lar...ge windows that run along the back of the house. The appliances are all new in the large, galley style kitchen that is fully equipped for cooking and dining. The living room has comfortable seating and satellite tv.
The master bedroom has a queen size bed, a private bathroom, and satellite tv. The 2nd bedroom has a queen size bed and a twin day bed. The 3rd bedroom has 2 twin beds. The beds sleep 7, but you can bring 1 more person along to sleep on the couch.
Cormorant Crossing is a pet friendly home with a large fenced yard. Bi rd watchers will love the variety of birds and ducks that live around the canals. Relax on the large covered patio and take in the cool breeze and beautiful views. At sunset, the underwater green light comes on for fishing in the canal. You can catch trout, redfish, sheepshead, drum, blue crabs, and more from the fishing deck. It is easy to launch a boat or kayak from the back yard for more water and fishing fun!
Additional amenities include: dock/boat-slip, large, fenced side yard, now with wifi!, just minutes to downtown rockport, ice maker, coffee maker, toaster, blender, fish cleaning stand, towels, linens, blankets, pillows, private fishing deck with underwater green light, private boat ramp, fully equipped kitchen with dishwasher, 3/2 canal front home near copano bay, 2 satellite TVs, and DVD player, washer and dryer, pots, pans, dishes, silverware, etc., central a/c and heat.
I was treated to a Mother's Day getaway by my family, and we chose this property based on information found on this website. The property is exactly as shown on the photos...lovely. The house is very comfortable, clean, and a great place for entertaining. We only caught a medium size fish, and 4 crabs, but it was fun just being out there trying. The house is located about 15 minutes from grocery stores, restaurants, and beaches. I highly recommend this property, and plan to return very quickly.

Restful Stay But Had Maintenance Issues
Left on 03/02/2011 for a stay in December 2010 |
This is a nice, newer home in a quiet location on the water but had quite a few maintenance issues that prevented our stay from being totally enjoyable. Many lightbulbs were burned out, and when we attempted to pick up some from the office the next day we found it was closed at around 3pm. So we had to purchase some at HEB, and we took them with us when we left. A few items were broken also, like one of the tp holders, one lamp, and the water faucet in kitchen. We also ran out of dishwasher soap and had to buy more. We enjoyed the living area of the home for relaxing and reading, once we moved a lamp in there from the bedroom for sufficient light. Upholstered furniture in the living area had food stains and needed cleaning. The double bed mattress in one bedroom was very hard and uncomfortable, and there was a musty (pet?) odor in tat room as well. We did enjoy watching birds from the deck in back. This home is far removed from the restaurants and other activities in Rockport but provides a peaceful environment. Just needs more attention to maintenance and keeping supplies in stock.
Great View and fishing. Nice Quiet get away. The interior was clean and very nice. It had all the extras we needed such as pots pans. Sleeps plenty of people comfortably. We spent most of our time fishing on the lighted pier, with green lights submerged in the middle of the canal where we caught and saw several trout.
