About the Property

3 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps 10-12

FIVE STAR TROPICAL ISLE has great unobstructed views of Karankawa Beach. Total occupancy is 12 at all times. We have an age minimum limit of 25. Just outside of Jamaica Beach it is a relaxing respite with 1400 Sq. Ft. of living area. Situated in a community of private homes, this is a 3 bedroom townhouse with 3 full bathrooms. The living room is spacious with a flat screen TV/blue ray player. Open to the dining room and kitchen. It's perfect for your family get together. It's a short minute walk to the beach and close enough to walk to Nate's Seafood and Steak House Restaurant. There are decks off both the living and bedroom levels, to spend relaxing evenings after sightseeing or playing in the surf.

Fully equipped, from high speed Internet to a beach umbrella. Tropical Isle has everything you need for a great vacation at the beach. The ground level has a lockable storage room to house outdoor equipment including charcoal grill, beach chairs, kids' beach toys, and boogie boards. On ground level there is also a porch swing, picnic table, and outdoor shower. Please check our calendar for availability for this very popular rental.


Tropical Isle has a unique floor plan, meaning the living area is on the top floor. While relaxing in the A/C on a large comfortable sofa guests can watch the waves rolling onto the beach. Watch others enjoying flying a kite, walking their dog or others walking hand in hand. The beach is fairly quiet because we are behind 2 rows of private homes and away from the busy hotels.
Seven Seas Market being close by is a fabulous amenity! If you are making the special family dinner and forgot an ingredient, it is just take a short walk to the market. Our kitchen has all the cookware needed. A pantry and a full size refrigerator to keep enough food for a week.

The bedrooms are on the first floor to accommodate weary tourist at the end of the day. The master bedroom has a queen size pillow top mattress. Windows facing the beach, private bath and a deck that is shared with the bunk room. The bunk room has bunk beds and a small love seat that can open up to accommodate a small child. Bunk room has its' own TV/DVD player.
The 3rd bedroom has a bunk over a double bed and a trundle bed underneath. Our beds are made up with colorful tropical sheets and extra pillows while watching TV or a DVD at the end of the day. I love spending time at this Townhouse.

Close by is a business that rents golf carts and kayaks. On the beach side Galveston State Park has an hour tour on the weekend mornings explaining what little creatures live in the sand. The Galveston Pier Amusement park beacons you for a day of fun. June is the month of the yearly sand castle building contest on the beach. I cannot leave out Moody Gardens, and the Historical Homes Tour in the summer. There is a sea camp for kids through the Coast Guard.
Please view also our 2 bedroom adjacent to this property.
