Now accepting Bookings for Summer 2016

Come relax in this beautiful second row beach house, approximately 120 feet from the gulf in the lovely Sea Isle area. With 1639 square feet in the main house, our home is substantially larger than most 3 bedroom 2 bath beach houses in Galveston.

This house has mainly new furniture, 55 inch LCD TV with Blu-Ray home theater system in living room, LCD TVs w/ DVD players in 2 bedrooms. This spacious home with 3 bedrooms and 2 baths upstairs has a great layout for multiple families. Rich wood paneling, lots of decks, cathedral ceilings, huge rooms – come live in a lodge by the sea on beautiful Galveston Island!

Beautiful deck on the main level, private balcony off the master suite on the top level, and a large gathering space at ground level, which is also where a half bath is located for convenience. We also have a fenced in yard area facing the gulf.

Located in Sea Isle subdivision, with seasonal access to a community pool.

A dog-friendly place in perfect condition, with beach close by and nice views of the gulf.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I and a variety of family members had a wonderful time staying at Island Cabana. The house is barely 50 yards from the beach, an easy walk, with nice views of the Gulf. It is in excellent condition, with powered shutters, a TV in every room (satellite big screen TV in the main room), dry covered parking for 3 cars, 3 bedrooms (including a second floor master bedroom.) It has a small yard that our dogs liked. Over 30 days we have a variety of friends and family members visit, so we cooked meals, planned Galveston trips, watch the gulf in all sorts of weather, and generally had a great time! We hope to go back.

We had four generations of family members visit us. The stairs are protected from the elements and the outdoor areas have good lighting, convenient for both my mother and mother-in-law.

The owners are prompt to answer email and are truly dog friendly--it was a pleasure to rent from them!

We walked the beach every day, even when it rained. My mother (86 years old!) walked the beach every morning. One day I walked from Jamaica Beach to the Island Cabana house (5 miles) and another day I walked the beach west to the end of the island (6-7 miles.) Other days we ate at Nate's West End in Jamaica Beach, visited the Moody Gardens, Moody Mansion, Bishop's Palace or took the ferry over to the Bolivar Peninsula.

Prom Weekend

  • 5 of 5

I just want to Thank the owners for allowing us to use their house to chaperone 10 teenagers for prom. The kids loved the house and the vicinity in which they could walk to beach. They had an amazing time! As for myself and the other mom who chaperoned, we were so pleased with all the amenities at the house. I would definitely take my own family back and recommend this house. It was truly an awesome weekend.

Great time with Family

  • 5 of 5

We rented this very nice home for the week and had a great family time. Lots of room, amazing views and balconies. Nice and clean. Dogs loved the yard and beach. I loved the windows. Lots of places to sit and play games with the kids. I would definately rent this one again.

Enjoyed the great time with family

  • 5 of 5

We rented during Memorial Day weekend. I can't begin to express how wonderful it was to be able to sit down and visit with my brothers and their families. The home has GREAT furnishings, so we could truly relax and visit. We loved the sleeper sofa so much that my sister-in-law had me contact Jane to find out where she bought the furnishing. She will be going to Star Furniture to get one. Having an outdoor shower and a bathroom under the house was a big plus to keep sand out of the house. We also loved that you use a code to get in the door, so you didn't have to keep up with a key. We would definitely rent from them again.

Wonderful Getaway!!

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough positive things about this place! Bob and Jane are wonderful. The place is nicer than the pictures! We had a mini family getaway and everyone loved it! The beach is just a few steps away and it's beautiful. I definitely plan on coming back for a longer stay next time!!

Wonderfyl family getaway

  • 5 of 5

We were a family of 12 renting for 10 days, and we had a blast. The house is very comfortable, cozy, with great beach access. In our time there we had a mix of clouds and sun, some rain, but the fishing was great. And while the sun was out our grandkids were in the gulf. The owners are very nice, informative and aimed to please us. The house was exactly as listed. One thing we were not sure of was if the community pool (in Sea Isle) was open, and it is closed until May 1 (not sure when it closes though). We would recommend to anyone who wants to get away to a quiet beach house and area, this is it! The beach views were great too. We went into Galveston a few times, shopped at the Strand, took the grandkids to Pleasure Pier. It was all good fun.
