Great hosts, terrific b&b.. special breakfasts and holiday buffets. Rooms in main house. . But also other small houses available to rent the whole thing! Within blocks if the beach. Very near downtown Rockport and Corpus Christi. .down the way. DON'T miss the Seashell shop in town.. Artist galleries, great birdwatching.

We stayed at Anthony's over Father's Day weekend and I was only disappointed that our schedule didn't allow us to stay for breakfast after our second night (breakfast starts at 8:30a, and we had to get going by 8:00am). Yes, the 'cabin' is a little dated but it had a good sized bathroom, large beds, plenty of space for a... More

This is not what I call a B&B, yes it does accept pets, however, the "cabin" allowing pets is not a cabin it is a converted garage! It was seriously outdated and smelled of cat urine so bad that I had to purchase a scented candle to mask the scent for the weekend. Breakfast was served whenever the owners felt... More

If you're looking for a fancy place, you'll want to look elsewhere because Anthony's is pretty basic, but it's a pleasant place to stay and is as good or better than most other accomodations in the area. The decor is a bit dated as other reviewers have noted, but the room was clean and very quiet. Each day you'll have... More

My husband and I stayed in the "Honeymoon Suite" as that was what was left for the weekend. Other than the carpet which needs a good shampoo or steam clean, it was tidy and the bathroom was clean enough. Bathroom was adjoined to the bedroom/sitting room.....not sure if the door to it closed. Owners were friendly. We were up and... More

Is this the only Bed and Breakfast Rockport has to offer? The breakfast was horrible. The room we stayed in smelled musty and the mattress needed replacing probably 10 years ago. The owners are nice enough especially when they are drinking and they do so every day. I suspect any renovations that need to be done are neglected because of... More

This place is a secret hide away for a nice quiet get away. A calm weekend for a usually busy family looking to get away just to reset for the crazy work week.
