Space 2,800 sq. ft.

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Den, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 7-10)

Relax and unwind in the perfect home. Whether you want to fish, go crabbing, or just lay out on the huge deck over the water, this place has it all! The house is very comfortable and allows you truly stretch out with the open floor plan, tall ceilings and water views from almost every room and wooden floors throughout. Very atypical to the traditional smaller more cramped homes in the area.

In the large beautifully decorated master bedroom, which is privately located on the third floor, you will find a comfy king size bed along with two comfortable chaise lounge chairs and a large bathroom complete with a huge double shower and jetted garden tub. Relax and unwind at the end of the day on the private master bedroom deck and watch the sunset or just cuddle up on a chaise and watch a movie on the flatscreen TV.

The other two bedrooms are on the second floor and each have their own tv's and dvd players as well as their own full size bathrooms. One bedroom is furnished with a queen size bed and the other room is a kids room with a full size/twin bunk bed. We also furnish 3 fold out twin beds at no additional cost.

You'll love the 3 levels of decks. The second floor deck is huge and is furnished with a number of chairs and seating areas for eating or sunbathing. It also has a gazebo with a sitting area just to relax and unwind. The bottom deck is a private dock with water access within 50 feet where you can fish or launch the kayak or pedal boat. At night, enjoy the underwater lights that come on automatically at dusk which make it possible to see just how many fish are in the canal.

Use the grill in the boathouse and eat by the water on the huge picnic table or prepare your meals in the indoor complete kitchen which includes everything you need including a built in wine chiller.

We really have tried to make you feel at home in our home by thinkiing of the little details that will make your stay that much more relaxing and enjoyable. The home was recently built by a local renowned builder with meticulous attention to detail, so it is completely updated with the latest appliances and upgrades. The open kitchen is fully stocked with spices, cooking utensils, pots and pans, a crock pot, toaster, a full size coffee maker and grinder, cookbooks, dishes of every kind.

For your enjoyment, we have provided 2 kayaks and a pedal boat as well as a large picnic table and grill downstairs by the water. The ladder on the deck allows easy access to the water for swimming or rafting. We do suggest swim shoes for foot protection, and bringing life jackets.

The private beach is less than a mile away, just across the street or if you would prefer to spend the day in a pool, the new (2014) community pool is just around the corner.

We are sure you will have a wonderful relaxing time here. Make our home your home for your next family vacation!

Location and set up of the house were great, but a number of household items need to be replaced.

  • 3 of 5

The split level set up was great for our family and we were very comfortable.

It was a nice house, but the fireplace wasn’t operating which was a bummer because it was cold and rainy when we went. The refrigerator and microwave both needed to be fixed. They had a temporary microwave on the counter, but it takes up a lot of space. A lot of the kitchen items are old and worn down. Many of the Teflon pans were flaking or in bad shape. Since the weather was so bad, we spent a lot of time inside. There were limitations to what we could watch on TV as the cable options were minimal. They don’t have ESPN which was a surprise as we hoped to watch bowl games over the holiday. For sure a first world issue, but surprising given the quality of the home.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review. I will look into the issues. Sorry you didn't have enough channels to watch, normally people are out enjoying the beach or several of the amenities that Galveston has to offer. Our heater is more than sufficient to keep the house warm. As mentioned when you inquired on the fireplaces they capped for insurance liability purposes. Although i can not control the weather, I will look into upgrading the cable and the teflon pans for this season. And as always we appreciate your business.

The house was marvelous, just Gorgeous! My family loved it. The view was amazing! We will return.

  • 4 of 5

The house is amazing. Sitting on the balcony looking out at the water was very relaxing. My only suggestion is get cable TV so the TV's can work. And put a light in the master shower. Overall I give my stay 4 1/2 stars.

Nice house. We had a great time!

  • 5 of 5

We have relatives in Galveston and were down for a Regional Gymnastics competition for the week. This was the nicest place we have stayed at down here. A house on the canal was a new experience from a beach house, but we enjoyed it very much. Fishing off the deck, kayaking, and a very calm peaceful location were what we needed. In fact several coaches staying at beach hotels came over to hang out with us. It was a lot less windy and not as crazy!

There were a few minor matters, and texts were responded to within minutes. If it is available we will stay there again next year.

My husband and I was celebrating our anniversary and decided to invite friends and family to join us. The house was immaculate. Very clean, very accommodating, very spacious. My children also had fun fishing, the games and toys. We will definitely be back.
