About the property

Cottage, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths (Sleeps 9)

BYOB (bring your own boat) to fish or just come to relax in this charming 4 bedroom 2 bath with great downstairs party area. Granite bars upstairs and downstairs. TV's both upstairs and downstairs with cable. 2 minutes to bait shop, marina, gas, store, restaurant and bar by boat; 200 yards from house ..5 minutes you are in the bay..Great fishing from our dock with underwater and overhead lights for nighttime fishing. There is a cleaning area on the dock for cleaning your catch of the day. Also - the longest fishing pier on the island is available to you; a 4-minute drive.

Our canal house is the best of both worlds. We know it will be a choice for fishermen, but 'beach bums' will love it too. A great beach is only 1/2 mile away -- a couple of minutes by car. Then when you return home after a day at the beach and are relaxing by the canal, you still have that beach feeling. You will love it!!

The house has a screened-in deck extending the living/kitchen area overlooking the canal. There is also a small deck for sunning. There is a recently updated, fully functional kitchen with granite counters, microwave, oven and stove, fridge, dishwasher, dishes and utensils for your use.

Downstairs is a great place to party or just relax; there are party lights, a bar, TV, gas grill, swing, and lots of seating.

WiF and Cable.

There is a hot and cold outside shower with privacy.

Sea Isle offers a lighted fishing pier, swimming pool ($25 wk. fee), children's playground, tennis court, boat launch and one of the island's finest restaurants. All of these are only a few minutes from the canal house.

Central air and heat.

A great place to hang out and fish!

  • 5 of 5

We booked this house so we could take the kids to the beach during the day and go fishing at night. It was perfect. It's far enough west that you don't feel like you're in the Galveston crowds, but you still have nearby access to groceries and a bait shop.

The setup was perfect for after-hours fishing--we caught speckled trout from the lighted canal and trapped several blue crabs.

The owner is extremely nice and very helpful. This is exactly what we were looking for!

Amazing House

  • 5 of 5

Great house with a great location. We've been coming to Galveston for around the last 10 years and have stayed at many houses from Tiki Island to Treasure Island. This is definitely one of the best places we have stayed at. You've got it all here whether or not your like me and love to fish or are a beach bum. The bar and restaurant are fun and serve great food with a great atmosphere. There's a bait shop and small store with all your general needs. The people in the this community are very friendly and inviting. Now the lights in the canal behind house bring in the fish like crazy and I limited out on trout almost every night. Last but not least the house is set up perfectly with numerous bedrooms and bathrooms to accomodate a nice group. The downstairs is perfect for kicking back with a cocktail and enjoying the nice breeze. Oh and the beach is only couple minutes away. I mean what else do you need? Oh yah and The owners are super nice and always answers your phone call. Great people and easy to deal with.

Nice getaway

My family really enjoyed this place, plenty of room to relax and unwind. Everything you need is there or close by. Look forward to staying there again in the future, and have already recommended to a few friends. We enjoyed the area downstairs with lots of room for visiting.
