About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + 1 Convertible bed , 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2-5)

WE HAVE SURVIVED HURRICANE HARVEY! Pelican Guest House is fully operational and open!

After 6 years of operation, my guest house has been a success! Pelican Guest House is located on the 2nd floor of my home on Dolphin Canal. Guests will share a common entry way, but have private and secure access to their own lovely living quarters.

What makes Pelican Guest House UNIQUE, is that it is AFFORDABLE for 2-5 persons. The base rate is based on two adults. There is an additional charge per person per night. Therefore, if there are only 1 or 2 persons, you will not pay an exorbitant nightly rate for a rental that sleeps 8 or more as so many retals do. Most of my guests are birders, fishing enthusiasts, those wanting to explore the TX coast, ladies getaway, or those needing a quiet place for some well deserved R and R. The house is located on a quiet street and canal on Key Allegro with lots of opportunity to take walks and/or bike ride. You can rent kayaks, bring your own or dock your boat at my dock.

I am a retired educator and may or may not be here when you are, as I now have young grandchildren and am enjoying traveling. If I should be here, you will have complete privacy. However, if I am here, I am available for questions or conversation, if you choose.

The upstairs deck faces SOUTH. Why is this a KEY FACTOR when selecting a property? In the summer, the breeze is out of the south, so you will enjoy sitting out on the deck, down below fishing off the dock or swimming in the canal. In the winter when we get a norther that blows in, you will still be able to enjoy the deck, as you will be protected from the cold north wind. You can see both sunrises and sunsets from the deck, while enjoying coffee and/or cocktails.

(I do accept infants to 12 months and children over 10 years of age with their parent/guardian The guest house is not suitable for young children.)

The Guest House is decorated in Bright & Cheery Island colors. The 2 spacious bedrooms, The Blue Room & The Coral Room, have comfy queen-size beds and 2 full baths. (There's also a futon in the living room). The beautiful Ocean Blue kitchen, with it's large island and bar, has everything you need...just bring your groceries (or go to one of the many Rockport restaurants).

The open floor plan of the kitchen/living room/dining room allows plenty of space and places to sit & relax, or enjoy the wide screen cable TV, games, books, and WIFI.

Rockport is a perfect getaway place with quaint shops, art galleries, museums, an aquarium & restaurants. There is great fishing, bird-watching, or it is just a great place to kick back and relax! The Rockport /Fulton area also hosts many festivals and events throughout the year. I'll provide you with maps and info to make your visit complete.

Come stay at Pelican Guest House.... I know you'll want to return!

About Judi

I am a retired educator and spend time enjoying my grandchildren in Austin, traveling and being able to set my own schedule. Therefore, I am not always on the property. However, if I am, then I am available to meet and greet you and answer any questions. But rest assured you will have privacy and it is YOUR option if you want to visit and interact with me. Most of the time, I am busy with friends, biking, etc.

Why Judi chose Key Allegro

Wonderful location with easy access to many events and conveniences. Rockport beach, aquariums, shops, museums, art galleries, birding areas are very close! Kayak rental available and they will deliver kayaks to you on our property.

What makes this house unique

You will relax and unwind. That's all I ever want to do when I go on vacation. However, there is lots see and explore in the Rockport/Fulton area.

We could not recommend this property enough. Great location with the decking overlooking the water in a very quiet area. Very easy to relax and everything you would ever need is included in the guest house! Looking forward to staying again!

Not enough time!

  • 5 of 5

We decided the evening before to head to Rockport and luckily this lovely property was available. Booking was a breeze and the instant communication was greatly appreciated. Wonderful location, affordable, and pet friendly. We enjoyed the community pool and brought our paddle boards and took advantage of this waterfront property. Kitchen is fully stocked. We will definitely book here again but next time stay longer.
