Sea Isle House Rental Photos and Description

Beachfront House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths

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!

About Rose Rhodes

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

Why Rose Rhodes chose Texas Gulf Coast

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.

What makes this house unique

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.

Great Stay... Again!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second year staying at this property! Very well kept and comfortable. The owners are super nice and great to work with. You can tell they take pride in their home. There have been changes since the last time we stayed that made things even nicer. The property description is spot on. Great location! Would HIGHLY recommend this property.

What a view!

What a beautiful house with an amazing view! The house was clean, comfortable and tastefully decorated. The kids loved playing in the sand and ocean. We had a lot of fun with the games at the house. A nice place to bring the family and relax!

Relaxing Beach Holiday Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four stayed at the Galveston Sea Star for two weeks over the 2015 holidays. We had a very comfortable, wonderful stay! The owners made the whole process very easy. The beds were extremely comfortable, the kitchen was well stocked, and the home was cozy and enjoyable. The house was very well maintained inside and outside, including a very nice landscape and pathway through the dunes to the beach. We loved the deck for its amazing views. We enjoyed many beautiful sunrises from that deck! We are looking forward to staying at the Galveston Sea Star again!

The Sea Star is an excellent beach house. We liked it a lot. It is clean and well maintained. We used the master bedroom, and the bed is very comfortable. All kitchen appliances are very good and worked well. Plenty of dishes, silverware, cooking ware, glasses. There are spices and staples there to be used. The washer/dryer is GE and worked very well. We never ran out of hot water. The a/c cooled the house well. The deck is nice to sit on at night and watch the gulf. The beach is nice and right in front of the house. The garage has bicycles, boogie boards, hand tools if you need them. The house has plenty of soap, dishwashing detergent, laundry detergent, paper products, trash bags, so we didn't have to buy. The towels are thick and plentiful. There is an outside shower downstairs and a hose on the deck upstairs. Handy for cleaning sand off people and dogs. We have rented several beach houses over the past decade, and this was the best one.

Wonderful Place To Stay!

  • 5 of 5

The house is perfect for a family, especially with small kids, and we couldn't have asked for a better place to stay in Galveston. It's right on the beach, clean, modern, and loaded with fun stuff to help you enjoy your stay. We will be staying there again!

Loved the house (very comfortable), location, and amenities. We could see the dolphins swimming through the gulf. We will be booking this house again for our next trip.

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