    About this property

    Quick 2-5 Minute Walk to Downtown Rockport

    We have a SUMMER special opening from a cancellation for next week. PIRATE COVE COTTAGE Simple but clean authentic 50s weekend cabin that has been restored and updated. Cottage is small and compact, with excellent location and great setup for extended family, person, or couple wanting privacy. There is a large private yard and ample parking. STill UNDERGOING some Hurricane Harvey repairs but comfortable and nice, and pet friendly. Driveway will accommodate a boat. Full facilities include WiFi for an affordable short-term getaway. The setup is for a family or extended family, or close knit group. A one time cleaning fee is added to each booking. The main living space is arranged in an open Hotel-suite layout with one full bed in the main living room, a twin size bunk bed in the back room, and two additional twin fold up beds can be set up in the back or main room if needed. There is a twin bed in the front sun room and a Graco Pack N Play baby bed that can be set up on request. The front sun room is excellent for baby naps and for mom if necessary. (Bring own baby sheets and blankets at this time.) Great value and convenience. 622 South Live Oak Street is an open-plan cottage with one bathroom in the charming "Heritage District" neighborhood just minutes walking distance from quaint old downtown Rockport with art galleries and places to eat, the city beach, the Navigation Marina district, and nearby city fishing pier that is lit at night. Fishing pier is right on market street and a straight two minutes brisk walk to the waterfront. The cottage front entrance opens onto the small front sun room with comfortable seating and radio on one side and bed on other that is separated from the rest of the house by a glass paneled door for some privacy. The front patio is presently under renovation, but there is a great backyard patio with a stainless steel gas barbecue, adjacent to the large backyard wooden deck which has lovey low wrought iron table, 2 comfortable lawn chairs, and 2 wrought iron garden chairs to relax outside. The backyard deck is lit at night by either solar lights and/or porch light. We love to sit outside and see the green tailed fire flies that are surprisingly ugly up close but create a magical moving lights display when in season with a lime green luminescence under the clear stary nights. Rockport offers a peace with a real relaxing silence at night and free of background noise during the day. SEE PHOTOS FOR DETAILS AND FEEL FREE TO ASK US QUESTIONS. In the main suite is the kitchenette, dining nook, entertainment center, and a large bamboo sofa. Table has just been strengthened with stainless steel bolts which is the pirate way to do things! There is plenty of seating and extra chairs arranged tastefully around the cottage. The Kitchenette includes a modern stainless steel refrigerator and overhead stainless steel microwave over a full size flat-top electric stove and oven in a modernized simple but functional kitchenette The main room opens up through two square arches to the high ceiling backroom with sleeping on the right side and the laundry area on the left side. The high ceiling bathroom is off the main room and consists of a curved glass shower, modern one piece toilet, and a pedestal basin. The shower head combination with various flow options includes a hand shower. Left is hot and right is cold. We provide soap, shampoo, and conditioner. There is basic TV with 17 local antenna channels, WiFi Internet, Netflix, and various other streaming services - such as PBS Kids, movie channels, and a variety of News Services. The entertainment center has a DVD and DVD library with an excellent selection of some classical and iconic modern movies and a brochure holder with brochures from the local chamber of commerce on year round Rockport and area events and activities. The latest DVD addition is Gravity with Sandra Bullock. There is a mini book library in the storage cabinet in the main room with reading for adults, children, and hard back books for babies. The cabinet doubles as our supplies storage center and has two large lower draws available for our quests' clothes and belongings on winter but storage for electric blankets in Summer. We have a pet friendly fenced back yard (fence is bent up a little for now - due to Hurricane Harvey. But still functional until fixed!) Updated traditional "batch" type ( New Zealand Kiwi jargon) beach cottage. All electric with large very cold AC and heat window unit, and new smaller unit in front room with remote. Stackable washing machine and drier combination in laundry area. Laundry soap is provided and the washer/dryer combo is easy to use. All done by us as a work of love in the tradition of the Heritage District batches which are fast disappearing. Its quaint but cute, its old but clean, and rebuilt pirate tough and strong. Some cracks here and there still remain but ongoing improvements make the cabin better and better each year. Its now proven Hurricane Harvey tough. We love providing this rustic inexpensive getaway experience for our guests. There is just a 2 minute walk to the City fishing pier that is lit at night, and 3-5 minute drive to the free dog beach before the entrance to the City beach. Its best to buy a yearly pass car sticker to the city beach. The city beach has an excellent salt water pond for toddlers on the far left. There are nice nearby restaurants within walking distance, and with a short drive along the waterfront there is an HEB, Walmart, Walgreens, several fast food franchises, and an ACE hardware. Just turn right on Market from Live Oak, left on downtown, and drive through town and along the coast. Mac's barbeque is on the corner mostly recovered from Hurricane Harvey. The Country Man's Country Club is open for business again which we highly recommend. (We text a restaurant list on request. Your restaurant suggestions and updates are very welcome). After you make your reservation, we text instructions and house rules with further information about Pirate Cove Cottage and what we provide. Bring your boat for fishing, or canoe, or bikes for relaxing rides or walks along the waterfront on Water Street just 2 blocks away. Rent a kayak or golf cart. Long graveled driveway that easily accommodates a boat and truck or several vehicles.

          the cottage was not what your pictures showed the covering for the front was gone ,no patio in the front ,and no covering over the car port. The front porch was very unsteady the hand rail was very loose The cottage was very clean on the inside the location to town was a great addition


          • Liked: Cleanliness
          • Disliked: Property conditions & facilities

          The location is great! The property owner forgot to contact us about how to check in-we had to contact him for the info. Also, checkin time as stated on orbitz is different-orbitz states 3pm, the owner states 4pm. This property is great for a guys get away, not really suited for families of very young children-exposed unfinished portions of the wood floors (possible splinters in little feet), exposed nail heads, rusted over cracks and resulting leaks between shower and wall, uneven floors between sections of the cabin, etc.

          Stayed 3 nights in Jul 2019
