3 Bedroom, 3.5 Bathroom with Panoramic Ocean Front Views
The most unique, luxurious, and modern beachfront residence on Galveston Island. Look no further, the Glass House, as it's known and recognized, is THE 'Architectural Masterpiece' in Galveston. It's so captivating in its artistic design and butterfly structure, it was featured in the island's local magazine, Galveston Monthly. Industrial contemporary is the theme and Villa Seamone showcases all the amenities of a contemporary lodge or modern chalet right on the beach.
With a wraparound deck offering panoramic views of ocean and bay this is THE most popular place to relax and unwind amongst treasured friends, it features a nightly landscape of stars so brilliant, one can feel as though they are close enough to touch.
Bedrooms all feature private beachfront balconies with contemporary design elements that blend ever so smoothly with eye catching beach decor. Many furniture pieces were designed and hand made to match the contemporary nautical theme. The master bedroom features a king size bed with all the elements of comfort and style. The two guest bedrooms come with queen size beds and a spectacular coastal view. All bathrooms showcase upscale design elements with large walk in showers, including a full size Jacuzzi tub in the master bath for the ultimate in relaxation.
A/V electronics feature the latest technology including Bose Surround Sound, and there are three televisions throughout. Kitchen and dining areas are spacious with full views of the ocean.
The addition of imported Italian lighting throughout this exquisite domain is chic and stylish, and gives Villa Seamone her sex appeal. Knotted pine floors throughout are both durable and beautiful and add just the right touch.
The comfortable living area is open and large enough for a full on dance contest! And the ceilings---at least 25 feet high with a distinct, industrial look, showcase the “WOW” factor.
Finally, the most exceptional feature about Villa Seamone is the living room’s floor to ceiling glass windows that exhibit a grand canvas of rolling ocean waves right before your very eyes. Tranquil, mesmerizing, and breathtaking.
You gotta have this as your luxury couples getaway, corporate boondoggle or even better, the reunion of forever friends or family to make memories of a lifetime! Villa Seamone is paradise with a true coastal resort feel. If you have an intoxicating appetite for a private, upscale getaway, don't miss out on this opportunity--It's “to die for” and that's all she wrote! I do have one final thought. This house does not rent out for events over 10 people, high school prom. Adults are required to be will children under 21 during rented period.

About Sally Roan
A native of Texas, I moved to Houston for a career in 1992. Fortunately, I was blessed with a strong work ethic and a desire to win and carve a successful path for my future. I landed a professional career that allowed me to grow, evolve, and prosper into an entrepreneur in a successful partnership. Hard work and perseverance paid off, and we sold our business in 2007. As luck would have it, I found Villa Seamone at just the right time and she's been a second dream home ever since. Now it's time to share her with those who cherish and appreciate the fruits of hard work and success. She reminds me every day that she is my rose and I am blessed with her scent that is truly delightful not only for me but for the rest of the world to admire and enjoy.
Sally Roan purchased this House in 2007
Why Sally Roan chose Sandhill Shores
First, all my guests providing reviews give Villa Seamone the best rating with complete satisfaction. That's amazing! Most of all is the story....I fell in love with Villa Seamone the moment I saw her while walking on the beach. I rented a place and my father visited from Dallas. We walked the beach one morning and when I saw her, she took my breath away. I remember thinking after I saw the 'For Sale' sign posting, 'whoever buys this house will be the luckiest person ever'. Never in a million years did I think it would be me. When I think back at how this all came about, I still get goose bumps. I am pinching myself today with a big smile on my face. Luck, timing, and my special angel in heaven was watching over me. Thanks Mom!
What makes this House unique
OMG, Everything about Villa Seamone is UNIQUE. The structure is captivating from the beach. Everyone recognizes 'The Glass House' if she's part of a conversation. The deck and balconies are perfect for rest and relaxation. Inside, the structure, lighting, and upscale design features are mesmerizing. Finally, the views from all areas of the house, coupled with the cathedral ceilings are just absolutely breathtaking. Villa Seamone is an extraordinary masterpiece!

Super way to stay in Galveston!
This place is so beautiful inside and provides multi-angle views of the beauty outside. We were 3 couples and 1 baby, and the 3 master suites provided perfect accommodation. Beautifully decorated, and everything you could possibly need is supplied from beach toys to kitchen utensils, electronics, to baby gates and even a pack 'n play. Towels were thick and thirsty! We never wanted for anything. The host was very responsive, quick and helpful. The location is wonderful - far from the big Galveston crowds( expect a 10- 15min drive if you want to dine in the crowded hotspots). The house is truly right on the beach. We brought a tent for sitting on the beach, but who needs one? The covered decks and balconies look directly over the flower and sea oat covered dunes and right onto the beach. When you want to head out to the beach, a private walkway takes you over the dunes directly onto the beach. There is a public road west of the house which allows cars onto a narrow beach area to the west of the house, but cars are not allowed on the beach in front of this home nor in front of the loooong stretch of private homes to those east of it. The back deck provides a fabulous view of the sunRISE, and the island is so narrow at this location that the front deck provides a fabulous view of the sunSET reflecting off the intercoastal waterway less than a mile away. The beautiful architecture does have lots of 1 and 2 step level changes throughout the house - in bedrooms and living areas and kitchen - so navigation might be difficult for guests who have special ambulatory needs, otherwise I highly recommend this property to everyone.
Thank you for a glowing and thoroughly descriptive review. I hope to host you again soon. Sally Roan
A truly special getaway on the coast
As a lover of architecturally interesting places, villa seamone was a delightful break from the cookie-cutter vacation homes the line the gulf coast in Galveston. Even when we had walked almost a mile down the beach, it's profile stood out at a mere glance like a beacon. But that's not what made it most enjoyable for us.
At first glance, this looks like the perfect place to host a lively party or event, which it is so very well suited to do so... but the real payoff, at least for me and my children, was how utterly comforting and relaxing this home is for when you just need to get away from it all and unwind.
For starters, you have the location: Directly on the beach, but 15+ miles west of the downtown Galveston. While Seawall blvd and the beach downtown was packed with tourists, we had just a small smattering of people at the public beach access adjacent to the street. If avoiding the crowds matters, this is way to do it.
The house itself was very comfortable and inviting. The open spaces and generous bedrooms are the cure for claustrophobic hotel rooms. Each of the 3 bedrooms has its own private bathroom attached, and the 2 upstairs bedrooms enjoyed the 16+ foot ceilings, which along with the walls of large windows created a large sense of private space. Lazily waking up to views of the morning beach (nearly empty) and gulf was very good for the soul. Blackout masks were thoughtfully provided. I loved it, and so did my kids.
Sally was super accessible and responsive. The home itself was fully equipped - the kitchen was stocked with everything but the food and drink. Between the multiple TVs, DVD library, and cupboards full of board games, there was no shortage of things to do should the weather have kept us inside, which fortunately it didn't. Outside there was plenty of seating in the shaded decks, and direct access to the beach. The washer and dryer made quick work of our laundry needs. The security system and locks only took a moment to figure out. Internet access and wifi inside was great, and a multi-function printer was even provided just in case.
Thank you so much Matt for being my guest and spending time at Villa Seamone with your kids. I am thrilled y'all enjoyed your stay. She is a spectacular home and definitely unique in every way. I hope to host you again and soon. Have a great summer!
We had a wonderful stay. Sally was super friendly and great to work with. We will return.
It is a beautiful place
It was so great experience with the family love to do it again
This is an absolute amazing home. Nice and relaxing. Stunning and so enjoyable.
Family Vacation September 2017
We spent 3 nights at this beach house, and we had the best time ever. The house was beautiful and had everything we needed to be comfortable. We would definitely come back again. We loved the idea of being able to just sit outside and enjoy the beautiful ocean view, or sitting out on the balcony and enjoy the ocean view, and listen to the waves. Being able to walk to the beach was such a beautiful experience, and not having to deal with a crowed beach. We practically had the entire beach for ourselves. It was fantastic!!
