About the property

Island Cabana -- Easy Beach Access, Sleeps 10-14, 3BR/2.5 Baths Pet Friendly

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.

Most awesome beach house we've ever rented!

  • 5 of 5

Sleeps a clan, fab comfy beds and linens, seating to accommodate our 10 for meals and TV as well as playing games. The owners are heaven to deal with. We had one little problem with a bedroom TV and they had a repairman there in 2 hours! The fenced yard was perfect for our 2 dogs and the views of the ocean were wonderful. We weren't on the beach first row, but second row but it seemed like a beach row as the walk to the beach was 2 minutes! The kitchen was well stocked but the cutting knives could use sharpening. That's the only negative thing I can think of that could be improved. The yard was very pretty and well kept, all grass and had 3 car covered parking. Upstairs deck was lovely. Highly recommended!

Wonderful home!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I were looking for a place on the beach to spend the weekend. I found this home online and of course I was skeptical because everything always looks better online. This home was true to the pictures! It is in a great area that is very peaceful and quiet. The home is very large and great for big families. The home had everything we could ever need. Bob and Jane were great to deal with. We will definitely be back again for another stay!

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.
