About the property

Four night special!! $290 stay credit with Wed-Sun Night Stay-stay an extra day!

Waterfront Sea Isle Property! Bring your favorite flags and fly them on the giant upstairs deck in the gulf breeze! Bring your boat and ride directly to the bay for a sunset cruise or early morning fishing trip...directly from the boat lift under the house. Relax with your family in this nicely appointed bay house that sits on a wide canal and dead end street in highly desirable and very family-friendly Sea Isle Community. Swim, BBQ, 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. We had one legitimate three star review due to a housekeeper no show and a new firm has been engaged with super track record since. Otherwise, our reviews have been all 5 stars with numerous repeat guests some of whom have become good friends and get great discounts from year to year. You are only minutes to the beach, Sea Isle Marina, The Sand Bar causal restaurant (crawfish boils, burgers, etc), Bait Shop, community pool, "dress-up" restaurant (West End Restaurant-make reservations!) . Sits on the second canal from the bay for quick access to bay fishing and water sports! Sand Bar Grill at the great West End Marina has Karaoke and Crawfish Boils during the season on Fridays. For higher end cuisine, try the West End Restaurant. Or, crank up the BBQ pit and grill some steaks downstairs on the water in the shade.

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. Some of our guests have even purchased bay houses in Sea Isle!

Please let us know at the time of reservation by email if there is a desire to use the boat lift to ensure the owner's boat is moved from the lift.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Thank you so much for sharing your house on and boat slip for the 4th of July. We had the best time ever in Sea Isle! The neighbors were fantastic, the community was wonderful and the water balloon wars made us all feel like kids!!! We hope to make it up again soon. Great place!!!

All the Comforts of Home....and Then Some!

  • 5 of 5

We had a very enjoyable stay! Loved the property itself, furniture was comfortable, very well appointed. Had everything we needed. Great deck up on top! The location is great too. Marina, store, bait all within 1/2 mile. Far enough out of town to not be crowded, but a short drive if you wanted to go into town. And a lot of fish because it is only the second row back from the bay and we saw several that were very large. Thoroughly enjoyed it and will be back again.

Great time highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed here many times and look forward to coming back every year comfortable house and a COMPLETE kitchen with every amenity. We especially love the huge deck on top and the covered family area below and the kids loved fishing from a private dock and floating in the canal are playing at the beach

A Wonderful House in a Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We have had a terrific weekend here, and truly can't say enough good things about our experience. From the fully-equipped kitchen, great beds, most-excellent porch swing, spacious deck (which is shaded in the late afternoon, unlike the folks across the way), the securely fenced yard (a blessing, as we had permission to bring our labs)... it all just works. We didn't use the jetted tub off the master, but it's a nice touch that it's there. The location, being a bit farther out on the Island, means the crowd at the beach is smaller and, well, nicer. The Sea Isle community is well established and friendly, and feels solid. The nearby folks seem like people you'd like to get to know. The house is quite near the bay, and there is usually a good breeze going. Again, this is a wonderful house in a great location -- 5 stars.

Enjoyed being on the canal

  • 3 of 5

We enjoyed our week at your beach house. We love being on a canal. We spent a lot of time under the house relaxing and playing shuffleboard. The house itself was fine for the six of us. The beds are comfortable, we liked the big dining table, and we enjoyed all of the outdoor furniture. Just a couple of complaints. It didn't seem like it was very clean. There was a pile of towels on the floor in front of the washing machine when we walked in. There were also several towels hanging on hooks behind both bathroom doors. I didn't know if those were clean or dirty but I assumed they were dirty. Then I was hoping that the sheets on the beds were clean! Also, the house needs to be exterminated. There were only 4 table knives so we were constantly washing knives or using paring knives at meal time. If these issues are resolved we would be interested in staying there again.
