About Carroll Walker
My husband and I had driven by this property many times and truly loved the location and the fabulous view of the water in front of Aransas Bay. We purchased this house from an older couple who had built it from the ground up. She is well-built and homey. Along with our son, who has grown up vacationing in this house, we have enjoyed many days of happy contentment and entertaining. I'm, of course, a huge mermaid fan, and the name Casa Sirena (Mermaid House) is my homage to the sea. We hope you enjoy the salt water and breezes... and the little Mermaid pool!!!
Carroll Walker purchased this House in 2001
Why Carroll Walker chose Rockport
Casa Sirena has the best views of Aransas Bay! Its porch is a great place to relax and unwind. The private pool (complete with a mermaid!) is a great addition to fun and enjoyment. The close proximity to downtown stores and restaurants is ideal. The one way street with walking/biking trail is great for exercise and enjoyment. The Rockport beach is a mile away, and the Port Aransas ferry is 30 minutes away.
What makes this House unique
Casa Sirena withstood the mighty forces of Hurricane Harvey. Our Community of Rockport took a beating. The home withstood moderate damage, but we have slowly built her back. It will take some time for the landscaping to return, so we do ask patience, sunshine and rain to make her that much more beautiful.

The house was great. The area was quiet and the views were amazing.
This was our 22nd year for our annual girls' weekend to Rockport We have rented several different properties over the years and this is one of our absolute favorites! LOVED looking at the beach. View was fabulous. How was clean and COOL. Pool was great. Had a wonderful visit. We LOVED it - and the owner was FANTASTIC to communicate with!
The view and a pool!
This house is no frills, but the view, location, and pool definitely make up for it. There are very few places right on the water that also have a pool, which is just great for kids. Rockport beach is just a short drive and is perfect for little ones. My only complaint would be that the window coverings in two of the bedrooms don't block the light, which is rough for early bedtimes, but we we're able to make it work with sheets and pillows. I would definitely recommend this pace!
Fun in Rockport
Great house and pool. We really enjoyed the location. The owner was easy to work with and very helpful with our stay. Pool and great bay view make this a favorite vacation spot.
Thank you so much for making Casa Sirena your Rockport vacation home. Happy to host you again next year.
Lovely stay in a great location
We chose this property because of the location and the private pool. We were not disappointed in either.
We loved sitting on the deck listening to the waves each morning and evening. The pool was just right-inviting and fun.
I was a bit worried about the check-in as I hadn’t received instructions up to the day before checking in. I contacted the owner and she promptly sent them. Perhaps they had ended up in my spam folder earlier, who knows? At any rate, getting into the house was easy and quick. It was handy, too, to be able to leave the key so that any of our party could get in if we arrived at different times.
We had a couple of minor issues-a light bulb was one-that were quickly resolved when we contacted the owner.
We were concerned when we arrived and the house was rather hot, but it cooled quickly and we were comfortable there during our stay.
The kitchen was well-equipped except for the lack of a full-sized oven. No problem for us, but difficult for anyone who might want to cook a pizza. I have no idea why anyone would want to do that with all the excellent seafood available in the area, though😏.
We were there for a birthday celebration and we asked the owner in advance if we could host a gathering there and were told that it would certainly be fine. The pool area was perfect for that gathering.
We were a bit disappointed that the bedroom windows didn’t open since we were looking forward to being able to hear the waves at night.
We had hoped to go fishing, but that didn’t fit into our schedule of other activities. However, we saw many folks wade fishing there. If you want to do that, the fishing starts just steps from the house.
All in all, we had a lovely stay here and would stay again if we come to Rockport another time.

Location was good but pool was dirty, house was extremely hot and took 18 hours to get cooked off. Grass needed to be cut and mosquitoes were really bad. The refrigerator did not cool down until the next day. There was no lights outside to swim after dark, and there was no oven to use fir cooking. House was clean and decorated with mermaids everywhere which was definitely a beach scene. The lighting in house was poor in rooms also.
Thank you so much for leaving your comments. We pay so much for the pool to be cleaned by Keith Zars Pool company. I will definitely reach out and let them know this. However; I reached out to you several times and never heard back.... It's also very unfortunate that none of these concerns were ever relayed to me. We are available 24 hrs a day, and not once did you call, text, or email through the website. There is a pool light by the pool which is in working order...again, if you would have asked, I could have helped you find it. And we never had a complaint with the refrigerator. And the website on VRBO clearly states that we have no large oven, only a countertop available. I do apologize about the grass... and I will let my yard contractor know to cut the grass more.... we have luckily had plentiful rain... however, mosquitos are not our fault. It times of much rainfall and heat, and at the coast, mosquitos can be prolific through nature. Our location and view is really wonderful, and we love our Casa Sirena as most people do. We are here to make Rockport a wonderful place to visit with friends and family, and can suggest so many great locations for your next vacation.
