We invite you to come and stay at our wonderful beachfront home, the Galveston Sea Star, located in the Sea Isle community! Enjoy amazing views of the gulf while relaxing on the balcony or spend time with family downstairs at the picnic table during a cookout.
The Sea Star will sleep up to 10 people in 3 bedrooms and a downstairs Murphy bed. Each room includes a TV and fresh linens on the beds. The living room provides spectacular views of the ocean as well as easy access to the kitchen. The downstairs floor has wood floors throughout and the kitchen provides granite counter-tops and stainless appliances.
The beach is car-free (other than the occasional city beach official), giving parents more peace of mind when your kids are playing. The home includes an outdoor shower, a picnic table and 2 person swing, fast cable wireless internet, HDTV's, Blu-Ray players, and a spacious dining area. For those familiar with the Sea Isle area, we have also installed a cell phone signal booster to improve signal strength and reliability.
Your stay will include a pass to the Sea Isle community area, which includes a pool, tennis, private fishing pier, and fish cleaning station. Located just 1.4 miles away, the hangout also has an excellent restaurant and bar.
We are happy to consider up to 2 dogs, but will not accept any dogs weighing more than 25 pounds, NO EXCEPTIONS. All dogs must be disclosed upon inquiry.
Please feel free to e-mail or call us with any questions about the property. Thank you for looking and we hope you have a wonderful vacation!
Rick and Tina met back in the 1970s while attending the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston. We have spent our working lives serving rural communities with limited access to health care. Dr. Rick is a small town doctor who specializes in making house calls to elders, and Dr. Tina is an occupational therapist who works with special needs children in country schools and is a university professor. Paul and Rose work in engineering and human resource management in the Houston oil industry. Lily is in middle school and is becoming a skilled photographer. After being away for so many years, the whole family is enjoying being back in Galveston.
Rose Rhodes purchased this house in 2012
We chose this property because it is located on a beautiful wide swath of beach, has plenty of open space on all sides, and it is within an easy walk of the local convenience store. Because it is a part of a homeowners association, we also have access to a swimming pool and private fishing pier.
In addition to being perfectly situated on a car-free beach, this house has a large, secure storage area containing bicycles, beach and barbeque tools, and a variety of useful supplies. The house is in pristine condition and has two twin bunk beds, one queen bed, one king bed, and a comfortable new full-sized Murphy bed. The kitchen is well appointed, and the living area and bunk bed room have new flat screen TVs. Internet service and a home security system are provided.
Sea Star is such a wonderful home. Bright and beachy feel throughout with great appliances, tvs, comfortable beds, awesome showers. Never ran out of hot water with great pressure. Location is the best right out the door to the beach and the little market across the street. We had guests from 8 months old to 80 years old and everyone was comfortable. Spent a wonderful month at the Sea Star and are leaving w many incredible memories. Owners are so nice and are great to work with.
Truly a wonderful place to stay. Beautiful house. All the amenities you could possibly want. Everyone went above and beyond to ensure a perfect stay. Even a welcome gift from the owners. You can't go wrong selecting this property. We will definitely be staying here again. Such a memorable vacation.
This beach house is fantastic. It feels more like you got to stay at your friends beach house rather than a rental. It is well maintained and nicely furnished. Instructions are very clear and beach access is great. Overall, this is a great place to stay and it will be top on our list for next time. Thank you for the gift bag too!
This house was well supplied and maintained to provide an enjoyable week for nine family members, ages 79 to 6. It was just as pictured and described.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this beach house. It sits right on the ocean with easy access to the beach. It is very well stocked with amenities and is very clean and updated. We will for sure be back!
We love this house! This is our 2nd year to stay at the Galveston Sea Star and we now feel like it is our home away from home. We don't have to bring many staples and basics because everything is provided by our wonderful hosts....including a welcome bag with lots of helpful goodies. We loved the Blanc Pescador wine in our welcome bag! Thank you! The house has a beautiful view of the beach and also easy direct access which a lot of beachfront homes do not have. This year we noticed there are new Smart TV's which is a very nice addition even though we spent most of our evenings on the deck sipping wine and enjoying the stars and sound of the waves. A beautiful setting, a clean, comfortable, modern and well appointed home, very thoughtful hosts.....who could ask for more? We and our dogs are looking forward to our next visit already! Oh...and the weather was perfect too.

Located 16 miles west of the 61st and Seawall Blvd. intersection. A car-free beach just steps from the yard is great for kids.
