Friendly Family Vacation Spot

When we arrived both Fred and Louise met us as the house because they discovered a water lick from the master bath but that did not impact our stay. The house had the basics and washer & dryer.

Perfect for a small family on a budget

To begin, I am from Rockport and just love returning whenever we are able to spend time visiting family and friends in this coastal area. Usually, I book a hotel room for a week at a time which can be quite pricey. This summer my family of five wanted to stay for almost a month and renting a hotel room would have been too expensive. I scoured the Internet, called realtors, and asked friends about possible long term rentals. Most properties I came across were extremely expensive...especially since our time frame included the Fourth of July holiday. Thankfully, I came across the Riviera Retreat. Comparatively speaking, the price couldn't be beat. We had a three bedroom, two bath house in the very nice Key Allegro subdivision which also gave us access to the community pool. We had the best time! We went to the Rockport and Port A beaches, the Corpus Christi botanical gardens, the Texas State Aquarium, and the Texas Maritime Museum. We ate at lots of great restaurants: The Boiling Pot, Hu Dats, Charlotte Plummers, Shells, Glow, Panjos... and since we had a full kitchen, we were able to cook at the house a lot. I even grilled hamburgers several times on the back deck! I can't tell you how nice it was to have our own house in which we could all spread out. I enjoyed walking three miles each day through the beautiful neighborhood. The house wasn't fancy but was nice enough with a great widow's walk up on top where we had the best view of the annual fireworks display. Having access to a pool was wonderful, and since it was summer, there were usually several other families with children at the pool willing to play with my three. We did have a couple of hiccups... The power went out for five hours one afternoon, but we just hung out at the pool and went to eat dinner while the transformer was replaced. Fred and Louise were very kind and hospitable. They even offered to let us stay at their house if the power company couldn't get the power back up and running! Overall, this was the best vacation ever, and I can't wait to do it again! I would definitely rent this property again.

Owner's reply:

A great place to relax and be yourself

My family and I stayed at the Riviera Retreat from May 9 - 18, 2014. We had a great time, as we are a techie family, and the wireless internet worked great. Louise was a great hostess and made sure that we knew where the good fishing and wonderful eating spots were located. Although we didn't catch any fish, we had great times and memories at the conveniently located and excellent restaurants at Fulton Beach, and absolutely loved Downtown Rockport and Rockport Beach. HEB and Walmart are nearby for those who like to get their favorite snacks and beach items. This is a very family friendly vacation home located in the middle of Rockport in the Key Allegro subdivision, one of the premier subdivisions in Rockport.

Louise Gonzales

Owner's reply:

Thank you for your stay at the Riviera Retreat.It was a pleasure to meet you and your sister. and hope you will return to see us in the near future.

7 of my friends and myself stayed at this house Memorial Day weekend and had an absolute blast. The house was very homely and comfortable and was stocked with everything you possibly could need. We all had such a great time and for most this was our first time to come to Rockport. We have all decided that in the future we will definately rent this house when coming back. You can't ask for better people to rent from and a better house to stay at!!!

Josie Torres


Riviera Retreat

I spent Tuesday through Friday here with my family, including 2 grandchildren under 2. The living room was spacious, the rooms comfortable and cozy. We were able to lounge around inside, or out on the beatiful deck with the most amazing view. The community pool was just a short drive down the street, and beaches, beaches, beaches in every direction. I couldn't have asked for a better place to spend our vacation. Mrs. Gonzales was also a sweetheart and such a pleasure to meet. We will definately be coming back to 4 Riviera Drive in the futuree.

Louise Gonzales

Owner's reply:

Thank you Josie,
Glad everyone had a good time. We will look forward to your next visit.

GREAT Vacation

We stayed at the Riviera Retreat for 5 days and it was wonderful. The house is beautiful, clean, comfortable and most convenient to area attractions. We spent morning coffee time on the deck and grilled outside in the evening. The local pool was a treat after a day at the beach. The owners were kind and consderate that our stay was enjoyable. It was the best vacation! We will definitely return to the Riviera Retreat!

Excellent guests services - great hospitality

We were taken to this house by some friends that had stay there before. We totally enjoyed the home, the bed was very confortable, the terrace view was great for sunrises and sunsets. The owners of the house were so helpful and tried everything they could to make us confortable when the a/c broke down. Excellent excellent service. We will be back with more friends and family. Thanks for a wonderful time at the house!

Nice beachhouse

My fiance and I reserved the house for the week leading up to July 4th and we also planned a beach wedding as well. Louise was so thoughtful and left a wedding gift for us, which was very much appreciated. This house has a great location and fantastic views. Very convenient to Rockport Beach Park and to the neighborhood pool, as well as area restaurants. It's nice to come back from a full day at the beach and be able to relax at a "home". We'll definitely be coming back!

Todd Arendell

Friendswood, TX

Great Place

We loved the house and were impressed with the cooking/kitchen amenities. We had lots of kids and did lots of cooking and it was nice not to have bring all of our own stuff. The views off the upper balcony were great too. Nice neighborhood and easily accessible to shopping/activities.

Great family vacation house

We rented this beach house for July 4th weekend and let me tell you we had the BEST view for all the firework show. We not only saw Rockport Firework show from the roof top but Aransas as well. The kids loved it. The house was stocked with everything you needed and then some. Very clean and the neighborhood was very quite. The pool was bigger than I expected. The price per night is very reasonable as well. The owners were as friendly as can be, they treated us like family, Would recommend this house to anyone looking for a getaway with or without children.Can't wait to come again :)

More Like A Home

The Gonzales' were very pleasant and the home was extremely clean. The feel is more like a home since it was stocked with anything one could ever need. The roof top deck was grand and even impressed some local friends of mine. If we are going to Rockport we will be staying on Riviera Street. Bottom line best value, best stocked, best view....

Houston, TX USA


The house was very comfortable and inviting. For anyone who just wanted to stay inside, the TVs have almost all the movie channels. The deck on the roof is great and the Gonzales' are very hospitable and accommodating. They leave the home stocked with more than just your basic necessities. Beautiful view and perfect location!

To the Longhorn Nation

We came up to Rockport for the first time and fell in love. This house is wonderful and the community is perfection. It is a perfect place for families and from the Austin area it is only a 2:30-3:00 hour drive. The neighborhood of "Key Alegro" where the house is located is beautiful (very classy area). There is a restaurant, Paradise Key, within walking distance and it has great food and drinks and the best views. Thank you so much for a wonderful weekend and we will see you again very soon.

A Must Rent

This home slept 8 people comfortably. It had wonderful views of the ocean from every angle of the house. Louise was very nice and made sure we had everything we needed. The town of Rockport was also wonderful. I would suggest this home to any one who is looking for a vacation rental on the beach. The home was very clean and well maintained.

Great vacation house!

The house was beautiful. The views were spectacular. The neighborhood is quiet and peaceful. We enjoyed the neighborhood pool. Rockport is a quiet little get away that we will be sure to visit again. Fred and Louise were a pleasure to do business with!


Arlington, Tx.


I've never had such a wonderful, relaxing time at a beach house like we did this past week. This place had it all. It's in the middle of all activities. I recomend this place to anyone wanting to get away and forget about "work". Leave it all behind and just relax. I'm booking this place again next year. The worse part of this trip was leaving.

Great Escape!

My family and I just returned from a great escape to Rockport. There was plenty of space for my 3 kids and my husband and I to spread out. And the rooftop view is the best. The owners are super nice and really accomodating. This was a last minute trip and they made things very easy. We will be back!

Luci Garza
