This place was perfect! I recently stayed with my 10 lb chihuahua at the Ibis cottage and absolutely loved it. Communication and check in were a breeze. Paula was in touch throughout my entire booking experience. There were a few hiccups during the trip but Paula worked to fix everything ASAP. Since this is a newer rental, these were basic kinks that were not a big deal and Paula and her local contact were easy to get a hold of. The tiny house is absolutely adorable. About 500 sq feet with a king bed and good size bedroom and bathroom. I think this rental is perfect for 2 adults (even with a small child). Both TVs were nice size and had Netflix and Hulu. The view is beautiful of the bay and cows/close to the big tree attraction at Goose Island. I had family staying at Goose Island and it was 5 mins from door to door on back roads. Everything was very clean (I’m in healthcare and extremely picky and hyper aware of this) and smelled brand new. The kitchen had nice appliances and was stocked with cups/plates/utensils and pots and pans and a Keruig. However I would rec bringing your own food, spices/oil, water, etc if you plan on cooking or staying without leaving often. The only improvement I would rec for future guests would be supplying basics like bottled water, kcups/coffee creamer, basic oil/spices. And maybe adding some blinds/curtains in the bedroom to help with the glare on the TV. In my opinion this rental is a good value based on location, quality/decor and my overall experience. We are already planning future stays here!

Very clean, very nice/cute little house. It was perfect for my husband and two kids. Paula was very helpful and super quick responses! Close to the bay for fishing and also close to Goose Island State Park which is a plus! We will definitely be staying there again.

We stayed 3 nights in the Ibis cottage with our 2 small dogs. There was plenty of space as it doesn't feel like you are in a tiny home/cottage. We absolutely loved the views of the water and sunrise from the front porch. We enjoyed hearing all of the different birds flying over to the feeder behind another cottage and there were even deer that came to eat from the feeder. It was so peaceful and relaxing. This is a special place. We will definitely be back.

This place is great! I have stayed twice now and likely will again. Excellent spot to watch the whooping cranes during their March migration (we saw them in the field across the street to the north and behind the house to the west). The house has a king bed and a comfortable pullout couch. There is a drinking water filter which is helpful if you're not used to drinking well water, but the filtered water is great.

If you want peace and quiet and a relaxing vacation, then look no further. This place is amazing and is all you need. Paula is a wonderful host who is constantly available and in constant communication with her guests. This was our 2nd stay in a little over a month and we had a great time.

Another amazing stay at the Ibis! Everything went smoothly and there were even more additional features since my last visit. Brought my picky husband this time and he loved the tiny house also! Still very clean, amazing view and perfect location! Staying here again in Sept for our 3rd time! Thanks Paula!

This was our 4th trip to the Ibis in the past 2 years. We really enjoy the peacefulness and how quiet and private the area is. We were very fortunate this trip to see whooping cranes across the road in the field amongst the cows. There were a few people stopping along the road with their cameras to capture them as they are pretty rare to see in the wild from what we were told. It was an amazing memory from this trip along with seeing many deer and other birds. Paula is an excellent host and very accommodating and very responsive. We love that there are great restaurants not too far away in Rockport.

If you're a bird nerd this place is heaven (and maybe even if you're not). It's quiet and peaceful, directly across from a large field with amazing birding, a short stroll to the water, easy access to town, all in a cozy little spot that has everything you need. Paula is a thoughtful host and easy to communicate with.

I enjoyed my stay very much. I choose the location for viewing Whooping Cranes and was blessed with views of them every day. The cottage was very nice. I could have stayed there a lot longer. Exactly what I was looking for. Very clean and just like the pictures. Hope I get to visit again.

It was a great place to definitely go! We loved the location. It was nice and quiet but we were close enough to the water. It was beautiful watching the sunrise and sunset from the porch in the beach chairs! We loved watching the deer and birds too. It was peaceful. We loved the inside. It was beautifully set up. Perfect for me my boyfriend and my two huskies. Everything was nice neat clean and perfect! The communication was perfect between Paula. We will be going back definitely to her next year!

If you want to check out Rockport, this is THE PLACE to stay. We loved that it's just a bit outside the little town (very short drive), which meant peace and quiet. It was wonderful to be surrounded by nature, so if you're looking for a calming, retreat-like place, this is the spot you want to go to. There's a really lovely view of the bay, lots of deer and cows, amazing start gazing, etc. The home was incredibly clean and exactly as described. Communication was quick and clear. When we return to Rockport, we will book with this place again! It was all around excellent.

Great location! We just wish it wasn’t so humid outside so we could of sat outside in the morning to watch the deer, and there were deer everywhere. Not a lot of traffic which is a plus, Place was clean and the bed was so comfortable. Close enough to the grocery store and restaurants. Thanks again Paula for sharing your place! We will stay here again.

Cottage was very clean and very close to Goose Island State Park. Fulton and Port Aransas is not far away at all. Local HEB is only 10 min from the cottage. Definitely will rebook on another trip to the Texas Coast.

For a very last minute trip to the coast, we were lucky enough to find this little hidden gem. My son (11) loves to fish so we were looking for something close to fishing and near Port Aransas beach and shopping. We found this quaint little cabin in RockPort on a Thursday and Paula confirmed our reservations within an hour. It was a lovely little cabin and very comfortable. Perfect size for me and my two kids. The bed was so comfortable and towels very soft. They even had a Kuerig which was my favorite. Lots of porch space for dirty fishing gear and sandy shoes, with an outdoor hose to wash off. After two full days in the sun, it was nice to be able to take hot showers and watch one of two TVs which are both connected to Netflix. Also, this place is convenient to Goose Island State Park and a short ferry ride to Port Aransas which made for an awesome adventure. BTW - the locals are very nice and helpful and was taught all about hardhead catfish. I learned how to remove hooks from their mouths without getting hurt. Valuable lesson all around. Thanks Paula for being such a great host.
