Spoonbill is the fourth cottage as you enter the property. It is set the furthest back from the main road, but still has exceptional views of St. Charles Bay from the porch and Gathering Space. Deer congregate around Spoonbill in the early morning and late evening, so you are sure to get some good pictures if you are still enough. The couch in the Gathering Space pulls out into a Queen Size bed. There is a King Size bed in the bedroom. This cottage sleeps a total of 4 people.

I am so happy to be the first guest of this place. It's the new construction so everything is brand new and of couse sparkling clean. The location is great. You can see whooping cranes cross the street and sometimes at the backyard. I truly love this small town and hope can come back again soon.

Great little place. It was very new and very clean. We enjoyed our stay. The bed was very comfortable too. Paula left snacks for us and the kids were so excited about that. It was really nice having access to a washer and dryer and we did several loads of laundry there. I would definitely return.

I spent my spring vacation here. The tiny house was very clean and has nice amenities for my family. I have a dog, and my dog also was satisfied with this tiny home. If the hotel is not good for him, he becomes very nervous. However, at this tiny home, he liked this home and took a walk nearby. Also he slept well with us. 🙂 Paula, our host, is very kind and prepared amenities well for us. So I was so glad and satisfied her support for us. I really recommend this tiny house for your vacation! You, definitely, will be satisfied with this tiny house.

The Spoonbill cabin was a fantastic home base for us while we explored the Rockport & Port Aransas area. Paula made our stay super easy, communicating clearly with us, and outfitting the cabins with thoughtful touches. The tiny house is well appointed and everything worked great. The cabins are super close to Goose Island State Park, and an easy drive to Rockport-Fulton, Aransas Wildlife park and a bunch of other fun stuff to explore in the coastal bend area. Nice views of the bay from the cabin and a short walk down to the shore. Lovely wildflowers all around the property in the spring. Was nice for just the two of us, and would be super fun to return with some friends and rent the adjacent cabins.

Paula’s place was exceptional! Super clean and cozy and had all the amenities that you need for your stay. The view was absolutely beautiful and the water was just a short walk away to access some really good fishing. We throughly enjoyed our stay in the Rockport/ Goose Island area. We will definitely be renting from Paula again.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Spoonbill house. Perfect for my husband and me and our small dog. It was close to all the nature areas we were interested in visiting. Several were close enough to walk to. The house was cute and very comfortable and well supplied with every convenience. Highly recommend!

Great little cottage near the water. The place was immaculately clean, neat, and the bed was so comfy! They really thought of everything and anticipated guest needs. I’ve never stayed in an Airbnb that had such great amenities in the kitchen. I would definitely stay again.

We visit Rockport at least twice a year. We have a few places we like to stay at pending how many family members come along on our trip and when one is booked up we look at our other go to places and this is one of them. This was our second time staying at the Goose Island Flats. We stayed in “The Ibis” last time. Great location, has everything you need for your stay. Very quiet area with not too much traffic. Thanks Paula for sharing your place with us, we will be back!

We loved staying in the Spoonbill cottage. The location is perfect for enjoying sunrise and the local wildlfe. As mentioned in other reviews, there are fishing guides who are out pretty close to dawn in their air boats, which can be loud, but my adult daughter used a white noise app and had no trouble sleeping through them. The cottages are a little remote, but this was our desire. Just know that besides a nicely stocked 7-11 and Pop's tavern, you'll need to drive into town for provisions and dining. There is a super Wal-mart and an H.E.B. in town, so it's easy to find what you need. Bring your own laundry detergent if you plan to use the washer/dryer. We loved our stay and will definitely return!

The Spoonbill Cottage at Goose Island Flats is the one farthest from the road, so it offers a little more privacy yet we still had great views of the bay - and the cow pasture and pond with all the cranes and ducks. Birding in this area is great in the winter and the cottage is in a very good location. The cottage was clean and all of the amenities we needed for our stay were there. After a quick trip to the grocery store we were all set to relax and enjoy the views.

Awesome hosts and the perfect location for birding. The cottages are super clean and while small, were equipped with everything I needed for my stay. Communication was excellent. I knew it would be a good stay when I was greeted upon arrival by cranes flying directly overhead. Saw a lot of lifers, including the cranes directly across the street. Couldn’t have asked for more.
