About Carey Graham

Over twenty years ago, Denis and I purchased the property next door to this current rental. We owned lots on either side and decided to sell the older home in 2015 and build a newer rental on one of the empty lots. We became full-time residents of Galveston in 2010 and are available if any problems arise. If you are looking for a rental in town, please look at our 2 bedroom/2 bath condo in The Dawn - # 443948

Carey Graham purchased this house in 2016

Why Carey Graham chose Gulf Coast

Best of both worlds - Ideally located close to the beach while being on a canal that leads directly to West Bay.

What makes this house unique

Located on a canal about 15 miles from the seawall, our home offers the ability to get immediately into the water or enjoy the many amenities that Galveston has to offer. There is plenty of space to enjoy fishing, crabbing and throwing cast nets. Our home is perfect for adults and children alike. We look forward to helping make your vacation perfect.

Canal Resort

  • 5 of 5

For years my family has put together these mini vacations in Galveston in which family and friends have joined in on the fun to share quality time and perhaps do a little fishing. In the past we have also faced some challenges in the property we have selected. Often I was scolded because I have selected a beach-house which didn't meet the standards of everyone.

This was not the case this year. I received "thumbs-up" when all members of my party arrived. All the moms were complimentary of my selection. The house was new and everything was functional. It was clean and fresh at arrival which set the stage for us when we left. Everyone pitched in to keep it that way for our departure. The owners welcomed us which allowed us to feel like invited guests to THEIR house. If anyone decides to book a rental, this home sleeps the number of guests adequately as well as provide the room and comfort for their stay with NICE bathrooms and showers. I highly suggest this home for finicky individuals who can appreciate something clean, operable and very nice!

Owner's Response: I definitely appreciate you taking the time to write a positive review of our newest canal rental in Sea Isle. The home was designed to accommodate family groups exactly like yours. Living close by makes it easy for us to address any issues that might come up during your vacation on the island. We hope to see your group next summer, too!

Perfect house!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time at this house! The pictures don't do it justice!!

Carey was so kind! She checked in prior to our stay, stopped by while we were there, and was available for all our questions. The house was PERFECT. Every room was meticulously laid out, clean, and great for the four families (7 adults and 7 kids) staying there. It's truly the perfect distance from the beach, we enjoyed a little pool time, and fishing off the dock was everyone's favorite! We loved it so much and will for sure go back.

Beautiful clean amazing beach house

  • 5 of 5

Pictures really don't do this house justice. I've been coming down to Galveston area for many years now and must say this is probably the nicest house I've stayed at. Perfect layout and the bar area downstairs rocks. Literally with the built in speakers. What makes it even better is Carey was the easiest and most helpful owner I've ever dealt with. Definitely be going back.
