Sorry, folks we have been hit hard by Hurricane Harvey. Thanks for all the outpouring of support for our devastated communities. We will be back better & brighter than before. Originally the manager's apartment in an historic 1937 movie theater, this 2nd floor walkup sits in the heart of downtown, an easy walk or bike ride to Conn Brown Harbor & Redfish Bay. 15 minutes from Rockport & Port Aransas art galleries and restaurants. This funky, eclectic space welcomes you.

The space

The original "penthouse" apartment home of the manager of the 1937 Rialto Theater, he could walk out his door to change reels in the projection booth. He & his wife hosted dinner parties frequently which by all accounts were very well attended (I'm sure it helped that it was the first air-conditioned building in the area). Today, this space is available for private vacation rentals. Depending on schedule, the Rialto Theater downstairs is also available for additional event rentals. Guests must be 24 years and older.

Guest access

Guests 24 and over have full access to the apartment.

Interaction with guests

We will be available for any questions.

Other things to note

Guests must be at least 24 years of age. This is our personal home & 2 cats live here, too. So anyone with kitty allergies should not rent this spot.

We had a good stay at Jen's place, it was quiet and the patio is very nice. Short drive to the ferry.

This place was amazing. Great outdoor patio. It was very inviting and the second you walk up, you're just thinking "wow, this is so awesome! " We booked last minute, as in, on our way from dfw. Jen was quick to respond and worked out a few details in out favor. It's so close to everything. Very generous, spacious and would recommend to others.

Nice and quiet, near a grocery store and right down the road from just about everything except a coffee shop. Things were tidy and a lot of windows letting the sun in made it very relaxing and inviting. I would stay here again.

I stayed at Jen's place for the weekend of a wedding I had the pleasure of being the maid of honor at. I had two bridesmaids and my wedding date in tow, and we picked this place because it was so close to the venue (Mansion by the Sea). When we arrived, Jen's husband showed us in and around the apartment, which was colorfully decorated and very clean. When I told them we were coming for a wedding, they put up an extra mirror for us which turned out to be a HUGE help. They were both very easy to communicate with, and quick to respond. This was super crucial when the bridal party's stylist had her assistants cancel on her, and needed to start getting us ready before we could head to the venue. I needed to herd the entire bridal party plus helpers/dates at the apartment for the stylist early in the morning, and thankfully Jen was happy to oblige that. My favorite part was the balcony of the apartment, they've filled it with colorful chairs, plants, and string lights for a very magical effect after the sun goes down. The bride came over the night before the wedding to finish her vows, and the setting was awesome for sitting outside and perfecting them. All in all I definitely recommend this place, Jen and her husband were great hosts!
