FAMILY AND FISHING RETREAT ON THE WATER

Galveston House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms; (sleeps up to 7 comfortably).

Waterfront Sea Isle Property! Relax with your family in this nicely appointed bay house that sits on a wide canal in highly desirable and very friendly Sea Isle Community. Swim, BBQ (charcoal and propane), relax, and fish right off your back porch, clean the fish on a cleaning station, or launch your boat at the private neighborhood boat ramp and, with certain conditions and notice at time of reservation, dock your boat in the house's new boat lift. Minutes from the bay by boat. By Golf Cart available for reservation, rental and delivery by two different golf car rental companies, your are only minutes to the beach, Sea Isle Marina, Bait Shop, community pool, great restaurant (make reservations!) and a bar and grill (great hamburgers, fried seafood and in crawfish season boiled crawfish). Sea Isle also boasts its own beach parking area. Sits on the second canal from the bay for quick access to bay fishing and watersports!

This house has three bedrooms (two queens, a double and a single as well as a single fold out), two baths upstairs and a beach shower downstairs, along with a large deck on the upper level and an equally large shaded patio on the lower deck and a new boat lift.

In addition the house is fully loaded with free WiFi, full linens, towels, and very well equipped kitchen. Well kept, strictly non-smoking. Looking to have a wonderful breakfast while enjoying the sea breeze or taking a boat ride from your back porch boat lift, or a leisurely 5 minute golf cart drive to the beach, restaurant, bay or marina - this is the house for you.

Sea Isle is a wonderful neighborhood - you will want to return.

Parties, weddings, receptions, or company festivities are not allowed. We rent only to family groups and responsible adults older than 25 years of age. Adults cannot rent properties on behalf of underage guests.

Any use of the property for purposes other than family vacations must be addressed when booking the reservation. Any intent to use the boat lift must be expressed at time of reservation and is conditioned on (1) payment of a fee to move and store the owner's boat ($50 fee to move the owners boat to and from the house), plus $25 per day that is paid to the Marina where the owners boat would be stored), (2) available space at the Marina to store the owner's boat, and (3) availability of the service to move owner's boat to and from the marina.

Just got home from a great stay at your beach house. We usually rent a beachfront house, but we decided to try one on a canal this time. We really enjoyed fishing, especially our young grandkids. The fenced yard was great for our two little dogs. The house had everything and was very clean and comfortable. We will definitely be coming back next summer. Thanks for a great family vacation spot!

Another great stay at this house

  • 5 of 5
This is our second year in a row to stay at this house. This house has everything you could possibly need! The kitchen is well equipped. There are plenty of towels for the bathroom and beach. It's always very clean. The owners are very organized and have instructions for everything! (We did not have any remote problems!) This house is in the perfect location. We were able to fish off the dock, swim in the community pool and the beach is close by. It's hard to find something that pleases everyone but this house does! Everyone especially loved the outdoor shower. It is perfect for after the pool and beach. The owners are great at communicating and always responded to us in a timely manner via text or email. We look forward to staying next summer! Thanks for another great stay!!

Too Much Fun

  • 5 of 5
We loved this place. The large deck was amazing and there was a shower and bathroom underneath the deck that made it so convenient after swimming or the beach. Great location and friendly people. There was so much to do and we loved the large raft for the children to play on in the canal as well as the ball swing. I would rather now stay at a canal home than a beach home. The restaurant just a golf cart away was so much fun and had live bands. The house was very neat and had nearly everything you would need and then some. The tv was difficult at first, but if you push the power button on the At&t universe box, everything works. My husband loved having his boat right in the lift. We recommend this place if you want to be able to fish, go swimming, boating, beach, and much more. Thank you Aimee and Dan for allowing us to rent your house for the Memorial Day Weekend. We absolutely loved it :)

Fun Family Time

  • 5 of 5
We had not been to Gavelston since we moved from Atlanta. This was our first visit and we had so much fun. Our 10 year old and 8 year old did not want to leave at the end of the weekend. Your home is so comfortable and inviting. Anything I could think of needing in the kitchen you had available. It was nice to not have to bring sheets and towels. It was wonderful that you had fishing poles, and crab nets and so much to do around the development even if we did not make it to the beach. We would definitely stay at your property again!

Ideal location for weekend getaway

  • 3 of 5
The location of this Sea Isle fishing retreat was ideal for us and the neighbors were friendly and quiet. Unfortunately, the fishing was not ideal because of the weather so our kids were bummed.

The living room furniture was comfortable, however, the remote controls (3) of them for the TV in the living room were tricky to operate even with all of the instructions from the owner.

The kitchen was well stocked with pots, pans and dishes so it made it very nice when it was time to prepare our meals. Previous guests left a lot of food in the fridge and cabinets.

All three bedrooms were modest in size, so our travel bags were always in the way. The house says it sleeps 9, however it was unfortunately too small for our family of 9.

Our boys were unable to utilize the TV or PS3 in the one bedroom because we could not properly operate the remote controls.

The hall bath was too small for our family with no counter space and the other bath did not have a shower curtain and again lacked counter space. My only suggestion would be to upgrade some of the bath towels and replace the bed in the master bedroom because it is too squeaky.

The home owner was extremely friendly and helpful from beginning to end. I would recommend this retreat for a smaller group.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review. This is the lowest review we have ever had and we wish that all of our guests have 5 star stays. Naturally, we are disappointed yours wasn't a 5 star stay. Towards continuing to improve and better manage expectations, we've responded to each point below.

Remote Controls: In trying to provide all of the amenities possible, (Apple TV, BluRay, U-Verse, HDTV Flat Screen ), I could see how the remote controls for the difference devices can be confusing. We wish you would have called us during your stay as there is a Universal Remote that controls all of the items. We have a techician scheduled to go out and make sure the Universal Remote is working properly and has not been removed.

Most guests appreciate having basic condiments (mustard, ketchup) and spices available rather than discard them each time. Since we frequently use the property ourselves, we like to have the basics there. Our housekeeper indicated only the basic condiments were left in the fridge with some frozen items when she cleaned the house prior to this stay.

Although we permit a maximum of 9 to stay in the house, we try to be clear in the listing that the house sleeps 7 comfortably in beds and that to sleep 9 it is tight. We don't recommend packing that many people in, but do allow a maximum of 9.

We brought a Sony PS3 to the house with a few games, but because guests have moved it back and forth between TVs, we have decided to simply remove it from the listing.

We hadn't heard about a squeaky bed from any other guest until recently and so have ordered a new bed frame and mattress.

We abolsutely love our place in Sea Isle and have had numerous repeat customers who book as far in advance as a year and have made the place like one of their own second homes. We always appreciate the feedback!

Our family had a nice time here even though the weather was not the best. The bed in the bedroom to the left needs new mattress and box springs. It is very noisy trying to sleep. The grill cleaing tool needs to be thrown away. I saw many of the wire bristles on the grill surface which could be a big problem if they got stuck in someon's meat and caused trouble in their intestines.

Owner's Response: Thanks for positive review! We replaced the BBQ cleaning brush and had not heard anything about the mattress making noise. Thanks for letting us know. We ordered a new mattress and frame for that bedroom.
