We are located only minutes from the Pleasure Pier, Moody Gardens, Schlitterbahn Water Park, Galveston State Park, the movie theater, the miniature golf course, the Airplane Museum and even NASA and the Kemah Boardwalk are close enough if you’d like to spend a day there!

We are on the west side of the island and only minutes from the Strand and Stewart Beach.

Plus Sea Isle has a neighborhood pool, tennis courts, restaurant and bar. To use their amenities you go into the Sea Isle office and pay a small fee. Last year the fee was $25. They tell us they open the pool for the Spring/Summer season when the weather warms up.

This home comfortably sleeps 20. Arrangements include a master bedroom with a king bed, full size futon plus a private bath with a tub and separate shower. The second master bedroom has a queen size bed, a full size futon plus a private full bath. Bedroom three comes with a full over queen sized bunk bed (sleeps 4). .

Just a few steps away we have an indoor game room that includes a combo mini pool table/air hockey/ping pong/field hockey for those afternoons where you need some time away from the sun!!

We have a private dock for fishing, swimming, kayaking, etc. It includes a swing, and a fixed ladder to make it easy for you to get out of the canal after that refreshing swim or just sunning on your float. We have a canoe, a paddle boat and 2 kayaks for our guests to enjoy. We have a small fire pit if you'd like to roast marshmallows or just enjoy a campfire!

Family gathering.

  • 5 of 5

We all had a good time. We all found a place to sleep. It was cold and the heat was difficult to control. No heat downstairs. We did not discover the space heaters the first night. Nobody watched TV. The instructions for the TV were complicated and someone discovered that one remote was missing a battery. Water did not come out of the refrigerator but the tap water was good. Several lights did not come on. especially missed the one over the commode. The Jacuzzi did not work. You already know about the tub faucet handle/vice grips. 3 out of 4 kitchen stove burners worked. Overall good. Thanks

Owner's Response: Thank you for the 5 star review! We left you a message to get more details about some of your comments that we don't understand. We wish you would have contacted us during your stay so we could have assisted you with some of them. We just checked the thermostat and it's working fine. The TVs are all working fine. Sometimes guests will use a battery from one of our remotes to power their games and forget to return them, so we have replaced the missing battery. The light over the commode had burned out so we have replaced it. A previous guest ran our Jacuzzi without water in it and it is no longer in working order. The repair estimate was scary so we now have a "soaking" tub. I just turned on all 4 of the stove burners and they all work fine. We contacted you before you arrived to make you aware of the broken faucet handle. We just had brand new faucet handles put on November 22nd and the guest who stayed just before you broke one of them. We were unable to find someone to replace the faucet handle again during the few working days between Christmas and New Years so we asked a handyman to do what he could to get the faucet operational for your stay. We are currently having that entire fiberglass tub/shower enclosure removed and are having it replaced with a new tub with a tile surround, new faucets, and all new plumbing, we are so excited! Again, thank so much for your 5 star review and we hope you will bring your family back to stay with us again soon!

Not bad , but not that good.

  • 3 of 5

There was no fishing light, One of the main reasons we were there was to fish.

Fishing was not any good without a light. The beds that were plastic was horrible we could not sleep. The ceiling fan was broke in one of the rooms. Also, we could not watch tv in the bedrooms.

Great place to stay

  • 4 of 5

We rented this house for my daughter to invite some friends to celebrate her 18th birthday. There was plenty of space and fun "toys" to engage them. They kayaked, canoed, paddle-boated, fished off the dock (caught one croaker), took a bucket of beach toys to the beach to build sand castles and play frisbee, and played pool in the lower game room. They had a blast. There's a wonderful wide beach across the street where the adults enjoyed serious butterfly-watching in the protective dunes. The only reason I don't give 5 stars is because the owners need to tell the cleaning company to do a better job detail cleaning things like air vents and inside drawers and cabinets. Would we go there again? Sure!!

Nice Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at The Enchanted Riviera. The house was very comfortable for just the two of us. The weather was wonderful in October. Fishing right from the house dock is convenient and relaxing. We will be back!

Clean,and very well taken care of.

  • 5 of 5

The property was great clean very well taken care of period we came there for a bachelor party and a Low key hangout weekend. When I spoke with the property owners on the phone they were very polite and easy to deal with I will definitely be doing business with John again. I would say the only negative from the trip is we didn't have another day to spend their. Thank you for a great stay at the Riviera.
