Sea Isle cottage description

This 2 bedroom, 2 bath waterfront home sits on the beautiful Antascosa Canal in Sea Isle and is perfect for families vacationing on the Texas Gulf Coast.

Location, Location, Location.

One of the highlights of this delightful beach house is its location at the west end of Galveston Island. Located in the desirable Sea Isle community, away from the hustle and bustle of city life, sEaSCAPE cottage sits on the beautiful Antascosa Canal and offers easy proximity to the bay and to the beach at an affordable price. sEaSCAPE cottage is clean and bright, and well-appointed.

Take a walk on the beach filled with shells for the collector, or build a sand castle. Go for a swim or snorkel in the blue Gulf waters filled with sea life. Body surf. Bird watch. Enjoy peace and quiet, with the exception of a meddling seagull. Take your kayak for a spin on the canal from your private boat house, or fish and crab the canal under the boat house lights. Grill your catch, and complete your day by viewing a glorious sunset from the canal deck.

If entertainment and excitement are for you, sEaSCAPE cottage is superbly situated in Sea Isle, right across the canal from the Sea Isle convenience store, bait camp, the West End Restaurant and Sand Bar, the swimming pool and the tennis courts. It has a beautiful outdoor entertaining area with a flat screen TV, and cable/internet service. sEaSCAPE cottage is also convenient to Schlitterbahn Water Park, Moody Gardens, the Flight Museum, Sea Wolf Park, Galveston’s historic Strand District, the Galveston Pleasure Pier and much more.

Surrounded by Water.

If your idea of a great summer vacation is being close to the water, then you will fall in love with sEaSCAPE cottage. This home sits on the beautiful Antascosa Canal. The Antascosa Canal opens directly to West Galveston Bay. Galveston Bay and San Luis Pass are well known for the best fishing in the Galveston area and as two of the top fishing spots on all of the Texas Coast.

Bring your watercraft! The house is adjoined by a private boat house and boat slip. Sea Isle’s boat launch is available for your use. The canal system connects Sea Isle’s boat launch areas, its turning basins, and its residential canals to West Galveston Bay. Step off your private dock into your vessel and motor out to the Bay for a day of great fishing! Upon your return, clean your catch at your private cleaning station right on the dock and barbecue your catch on the grill conveniently located. Your private dock includes lights for fun night time fishing. Trout, redfish, flounder as well as blue and stone crabs are caught right off sEaSCAPE cottage’s lighted dock. Your private boat slip is also ideal for launching your canoe, kayak or other people-powered craft.

Just across San Luis Pass Road are Sea Isle Beach and the Gulf of Mexico. sEaSCAPE cottage offers the best of two great water experiences; the home is caressed by the salt marshes and inlets of West Galveston Bay on one side, and the Gulf of Mexico on the other side. Whether by the bay or the beach, your entire family will make unforgettable vacation memories at this seaside retreat.
