About Lory Johnson

We have been visiting Rockport for 40+ years. Copano Bay caught our attention many years ago. We have spent many hours designing and furnishing the home for all to enjoy. The home was completed in early 2013 and was listed for vacation rental for the first time in early June 2013.

Lory Johnson purchased this house in 2013

Why Lory Johnson chose Rockport

Big Blue on Copano Bay sits on a large lot (and now we own the vacant lot next door!). The lot fronts Copano Bay and directly across the street is Salt Lake. You can sit on any porch of the home and have an amazing view. Fishing and kayaking are awesome. The area is peaceful and the sunsets are amazing.

The house was designed and furnished to accommodate large groups, family, couples, and family groups. We have tried to include everything needed in a vacation rental. We want you to look forward to your visit, enjoy your time there…and make plans to come back soon! As many families have come back each year....and as the 40+ reviews clearly note...its a great place to enjoy your vacation.

What makes this house unique

The 385' private lighted pier was completed in May 2013. It was the final touch to our bayfront home. Just after completion, a pod of dolphins hung around playing at the end of the pier. Super fun to watch! The sport fishing lights and additional covered area make for a awesome time fishing with family and friends.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I would rate your place as a 5-Star, my family and I had a great time, we enjoyed the beautiful weather. The fishing pier and lights provided all we needed as my family was fishing from 9am to late at night, we may not have caught any large fish, but just the experience of the fishing pier was great enough. The home is lovely, had everything that we needed. I don’t think I can go to any other home and find all of the amenities that your home has, it exceeded our expectations. I would recommend this place and have, to my friends and other family members. We would love to return to your rental property.

Celebrating Easter with sunrise over beautiful Copano Bay

  • 5 of 5

Our family has been vacationing in Rockport for many years. This was our first time staying on the Copano Bay side, and it may just be our new favorite. The wind was always at our backs when fishing from the amazing pier, so we didn't have to fight the usual casting dilemmas that normally plague us when fishing from the Aransas Bay side. We caught lots of speckled trout each night under the lights, including many keepers. Big Blue is an amazing home! Very spacious and well equipped. We had lots of room to gather and play board games, cook, and eat (there were 7 of us -- 4 adults and 3 kids). Everything was new and in great condition. The Sonos speaker system with iPad control is now on our Christmas list for our own house this year:-) We can't wait to book our next trip and will definitely stay at Big Blue has totally spoiled us and we may not be satisfied with any other Rockport rental.

Great fishing property in Rockport

This was a great family vacation, and the pictures accurately represent what the property looks and feels like. The owners were very responsive to all inquiries, and we'll likely come back here in the spring. Great place for families and kids.

Beautiful home at great location on Copano Bay

  • 5 of 5

This is our 2nd stay at this home. The kids had fun kayaking and we enjoyed catching trout from the pier when we weren't taking in all of the great activities around Rockport. Lory was very helpful and responsive when we had questions.

This location is fantastic. Walking out on the deck every morning with my cup of coffee and seeing a sunrise over the bay was heaven! This place was amazing. Everything was very well thought out and well maintained. 1st class all the way.
