About Barbara

The owner grew up living near the water, and sEaSCAPE cottage west is her dream home. As a young girl, she and her brothers spent summers at their family’s beach house on the north shore of Long Island, New York. After establishing a successful career, she began searching for waterfront property where she could spend time with her own family and pass on some of her fondest childhood memories. When her brothers relocated to Houston, she seized the opportunity to settle on Galveston Island in beautiful Terramar Beach.

Barbara purchased this house in 2012

Why Barbara chose Galveston

Located at the west end of Galveston Island where the island is at its narrowest, Terramar Beach offers easy proximity to the bay and also to the beach. The west end is idyllic. There is very little noise, and there are no hotels swallowing up the coast. The tranquility of the Gulf Coast is on display in this area. You will find warm breezes, white sand, and wonderful memories.

What makes this house unique

This home is uniquely situated at the west end of Galveston where the island is at its narrowest, and in one of the most desirable areas. This home sits on the beautiful Lunes Canal, offering easy access to West Galveston Bay. Just across San Luis Pass Road is Terramar Beach and the Gulf of Mexico. The lot was specifically chosen to position the home for the sunset view from the canal deck. Gather on the canal deck each evening as you marvel at one of the most breathtaking sunset views available on the island, right from your own private deck.

Bring your watercraft! The house is adjoined by a private boat house and boat slip. Terramar’s private boat launch is available for your use.

Vacationing at sEaSCAPE cottage west includes full access to all of the amenities at Terramar Beach.

Come enjoy warm breezes, white sand and wonderful memories at an affordable price.

Nice accomodations

  • 4 of 5

Had a nice time, but instructions about keys should be put up front on the arrival paperwork. The only problems was

there were grass burs in one of the beds and in the welcome mat. Otherwise we had a nice time even though the

fish weren't biting.

Experience

  • 5 of 5

My family came to visit so I wanted to rent a canal house for a reasonable price. This house was more than I expected for the price. It was very clean, organized, and the fishing was awesome. I will always try to rent this house when planning trips to Galveston. I can't wait to go back!!

Awesome

Awesome stay. A little cold at first but that was solved quickly. Cool and windy but still lots of fishing fun. House was clean, beds comfortable. Has everything necessary. Would stay there again. Actually prefer canal house to beach house.

Perfect for our weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for us. We arrived late Friday night and our instructions were great to get into the house. We spent the weekend fishing off the dock and relaxing. Went to the West End marina and ate lunch. We cannot wait to book this exact house again over the summer for another long weekend. House was clean and arrival and departure instructions were very easy. We gave my mother the king bedroom, my husband and myself slept in the other bedroom. My son bed hopped from the trundle to the bunk beds in our room. We grilled one evening for dinner and it was so relaxing to sit on the deck and eat while the sun set. Cannot wait to go back!

Had a Blast!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our weekend trip. Our friends were getting married in Jamaica beach and this house on the canal was so much better than a hotel. We enjoyed fishing right off the dock, we even brought a boat and kept it in the boat slip. The boat ramp was close by and it was easy to get in and out of.

The house was wonderful and the neighbors were great! And most importantly Barbara was professional and absolutely great! We will definitely be coming back to the canal house next year!

AWESOME HOUSE!

  • 5 of 5

We took all of our grandkids and daughters here for a small family vacation. There were 8 of us and the house had plenty of room for us all to enjoy. This is the cleanest and nicest home we have rented. The kitchen has quality cookware and everything you need while you are there. The outside is awesome with the Large Porch swing and nice upper covered deck. The outside shower is a real plus and the community pool is large and very clean. The fishing in the canal right off the porch is awesome. We caught enough regulation size speckled trout at night for one meal. The neighbors are very friendly and its a quiet clean relaxing neighborhood. The beach is close, bait house is close, and there were two convenient stores close by with groceries we forgot to bring. The house is far most the best rental we have used and the owner has great instructions on how to use everything in the home including the fast internet. Can't wait to go again and again! Great Place to relax!
