WELCOME TO THE SEA BISCUIT-FUN IN THE SUN!

Galveston House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, 1 outdoor shower, sleeps 9

The Sea Biscuit is a short golf cart (provided) ride away from the beach so that you and your group can play all day and relax all night. Our home offers spectacular sunsets over the bay from the vast back deck and despite its proximity to the big city, this retreat really allows you to get away from it all.

Inside the house we have broadband internet access, a big screen TV with satellite, DVD player, washer and dryer, surround sound with an IPOD connection, Super Nintendo and board games. The kitchen is fully stocked with utensils, coffee maker, toaster oven, microwave, griddle and a full sized refrigerator.

Outside we have two lounge areas to enjoy the view of the bay, the beach and a nature preserve. There's no doubt you and your guests will appreciate the peaceful ambiance of the west end of Galveston.

Welcome to Galveston!

The Sea Buscuit Is the Place to Be

We had a wonderful stay at the Sea Biscuit. The beach home was very cozy and a great start to our vacation. The home was fully stocked with all the amenities we needed and I mean everything you could ever need is there. The golf cart made it a breeze to get to and from the beach. My little nephew loved it especially when he was able to ride up front to the beach. The property was well maintained and clean. The owner was very nice and helpful with all our reservation questions. I highly recommend staying at this beautiful vacation home. We will definitely stay there again.

Ready to comeback!

This was our third visit to the Seabiscuit. We had an awesome time--a lot of memories, tears and laughter. Our grandchildren had a blast in the ocean and watching the flying fish. My husband and son in laws went deep sea fishing and then my husband went another day with our daughter.Dave is always help and readily available if you need assistance. I guess the sweetest thing was when we returned home and my grandson was looking for the sun to fall into the ocean.

Truth in Adverstising

  • 5 of 5

Truth in advertising is important when booking a place online. The pictures do not do it justice. The house was clean as was the housing community it's in. The rooms were a comfortable size. There are great views of the bay from most rooms, and it's at the end of a cul de sac.

The Seabiscuit was the best priced for our criteria, one of which is that it had 3 separate bedrooms (some count the hidabed in the living room as a bedroom). The rooms were spacious, and truly the only thing you need to bring is food! We chose to buy at a little supermarket a couple of miles down the road instead, but there is a Walmart, Kroger, and Randall's further in town.

We are not "beach" people, but it's just a few blocks away. You can take the golf cart or bikes over, or even walk.

A favorite place to eat lunch is the Sunflower Bakery and Cafe. We liked it so well, we ate there twice. Between the four of us we had sandwiches (Cuban and Reuben), salads, tomato basil soup, chicken fried steak, and the desserts, which are wonderful. Great prices, great staff.

Across the hallway from Sunflower is a neat antique store, and they sell some great hand salts (you can sample one in the bathrooms in the hallway).

We took the free ferry ride over to Bolivar Peninsula, and while there isn't a lot to see on BP, it's a neat experience if you've never been on a ferry, BP does have nice beaches that you can drive down in your car, and we did see 3 different sets of dolphins on the ferry ride.

We would also recommend the tours of Moody Mansion and Bishop's Palace. If choosing one, we'd say the Moody and ask for Claire's schedule. She knows so much about it she makes the family and the era come alive.

The Aquarium was fun. The penguin and sea lion exhibits were very entertaining, as was the glass fish tunnel you walk through. The sharks aren't huge, but bigger than I would want to tangle with!

The favorite part for me was simply starting the day with coffee and ending it with a root beer on the upper deck listening to the ocean. I miss that!!

We will definitely be staying again, hopefully this summer, but definitely this winter!

We loved our stay at the Sea Biscuit. Great location, very relaxing and quiet. Wonderful view of the bay and an easy walk or golf cart ride to the beach. We would highly recommend Sea Biscuit to anyone. The house is perfect and clean with plenty of amenities, everything you could need. The owner is very nice and helpful with reservations. This will be our place to stay in Galveston.

Relaxing Stay at the Seabiscuit

  • Submitted: Sep 8, 2012

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Seabiscuit. Safe and secure neighborhood, peaceful, relaxing. Wonderful views of the Backbay.
We had plenty of room to spread out in the home. Our daughter had plenty to keep her busy from video games, board games, bike riding around the street which was located on a cul de sac. no traffic! And far away from the main road. Upstairs and downstairs sitting areas. BBq! Outdoor showers and plenty of beach to explore. We loved it! Ready to come back soon for another vacation!

Our home is located in Isla del Sol, a deed restricted neighborhood located 15 miles from the seawall, which means you are close enough to the action, but far enough away to have peace and quiet. The beach is close to the house and the bay is one house away as you can see from the pictures. Although the beach is 6 blocks away, we will allow licensed drivers the ability to use our golf cart to get there. This is a fun, hassle-free way to enjoy the beautiful, uncrowded beaches.

The neighborhood also has a private fishing pier (you will want to bring poles and tackle), which is a great place to catch flounder and a lot of fun for kids and adults alike.

Galveston Island has an endless supply of fun things to go to like Schlitterbahn, Moody Gardens and the Strand.

Other Activities: Schlitterbahn, Moody Gardens, Lone Star Air Museum, San Luis Pass
