Baffin on the Rocks, a ±26-acre private fishing retreat near Riviera, Texas, is the ultimate destination for outdoors enthusiasts. The retreat, 20 minutes from Kingsville and less than an hour south of Corpus Christi with easy access to the deep waters of the Gulf of Mexico, is nestled deep in the South Texas brush country also known as Texas’ last great habitat.
Baffin Bay, an inlet of the ecologically productive Laguna Madre, forms part of the boundary between Kleberg and Kenedy counties, home to the historic ranches bearing the same names. The area’s hunting, which includes whitetails, feral hogs and nilgai as well as quail, dove, turkey and waterfowl all accessible through local guides, is as legendary as its sprawling ranches. Wide, open spaces still abound.
With ±350’ foot of bay frontage, Baffin on the Rocks provides superlative fishing from its 300’ foot lighted pier. The pier is outfitted with fresh water so the day’s catch can be pan-ready before leaving the waterfront. Prime species include speckled trout, redfish, flounder and drum. In fact, anglers have reeled in record-setting specks and redfish from the property's pier and in nearby waters. A seawall offers protection against erosion and tidal surges from hurricanes.
To maintain privacy, the front portion of the property is maintained in native brush, which also provides habitat for wildlife. The back portion, the site of the improvements, has been opened up to provide views of the bay and create a park-like environment for guests.
Baffin on the Rocks, currently used as a rental retreat, features four identical two-bedroom/two-bath cabins that were completely renovated in 2020. Each cabin has a full kitchen, outfitted with appliances as well as pots, pans, utensils, dishware, glassware and cutlery.
The cabins’ front porches face Baffin Bay, making them the ideal location to enjoy a cup of coffee as the sun rises over the water. Every cabin also has an open-flame fire pit, so guests can gather and unwind at the day’s end. A swimming pool offers a refreshing respite any time day or night.
In addition to the cabins, the property boasts a one-bedroom/one-bath home currently used for employees, an open-air pavilion with its own fire pit as well as an enclosed climate-controlled conference center. Two converted cargo containers house three washers, three dryers and maintenance equipment.
Baffin on the Rocks is a piece of outdoors paradise that can be an income-generating rental retreat, a corporate getaway, or the ultimate family destination. Here, the opportunities that await are as big as the adventures.
