About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8

This 2 bedroom, 2 bath waterfront home sits on the beautiful Antascosa Canal in Sea Isle and is perfect for families vacationing on the Texas Gulf Coast.

Location, Location, Location.

One of the highlights of this delightful beach house is its location at the west end of Galveston Island. Located in the desirable Sea Isle community, away from the hustle and bustle of city life, sEaSCAPE cottage sits on the beautiful Antascosa Canal and offers easy proximity to the bay and to the beach at an affordable price. sEaSCAPE cottage is clean and bright, and well-appointed.

Take a walk on the beach filled with shells for the collector, or build a sand castle. Go for a swim or snorkel in the blue Gulf waters filled with sea life. Body surf. Bird watch. Enjoy peace and quiet, with the exception of a meddling seagull. Take your kayak for a spin on the canal from your private boat house, or fish and crab the canal under the boat house lights. Grill your catch, and complete your day by viewing a glorious sunset from the canal deck.

If entertainment and excitement are for you, sEaSCAPE cottage is superbly situated in Sea Isle, right across the canal from the Sea Isle pool and tennis courts, convenience store, marina and bait camp, and the West End Restaurant and Sand Bar. It has a beautiful outdoor entertaining area with a wet bar, flat screen TV and surround sound. DirecTV and AT&T U-verse hi-speed internet are complimentary. sEaSCAPE cottage is also convenient to Schlitterbahn Water Park, Moody Gardens, the Flight Museum, Sea Wolf Park, Galveston’s historic Strand District, the Galveston Pleasure Pier and much more.

Surrounded by Water.

If your idea of a great summer vacation is being close to the water, then you will fall in love with sEaSCAPE cottage. This home sits on the beautiful Antascosa Canal. The Antascosa Canal opens directly to West Galveston Bay. Galveston Bay and San Luis Pass are well known for the best fishing in the Galveston area and as two of the top fishing spots on all of the Texas Coast.

Bring your watercraft! The house is adjoined by a private boat house and boat slip. Sea Isle’s boat launch is available for your use. The canal system connects Sea Isle’s boat launch areas, its turning basins, and its residential canals to West Galveston Bay. Step off your private dock into your vessel and motor out to the Bay for a day of great fishing! Upon your return, clean your catch at your private cleaning station right on the dock and barbecue your catch on the grill conveniently located. Your private dock includes lights for fun night time fishing. Trout, redfish, flounder as well as blue and stone crabs are caught right off sEaSCAPE cottage’s lighted dock. Your private boat slip is also ideal for launching your canoe, kayak or other people-powered craft.

Just across San Luis Pass Road are Sea Isle Beach and the Gulf of Mexico. sEaSCAPE cottage offers the best of two great water experiences; the home is caressed by the salt marshes and inlets of West Galveston Bay on one side, and the Gulf of Mexico on the other side. Whether by the bay or the beach, your entire family will make unforgettable vacation memories at this seaside retreat.

About Barbara

The owners have been friends for 30 years, and their families are very close. They often vacation together, always on or near the water. A longstanding familiarity with the Houston area made Galveston Island the natural choice to acquire waterfront property where the owners can spend time with their families and make wonderful memories. The owners seized the opportunity to acquire sEaSCAPE cottage when it became available. sEaSCAPE cottage Sea Isle is the perfect compliment to sEaSCAPE cottage Terramar Beach, the owner’s initial acquisition.

Barbara purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Barbara chose Galveston

Sea Isle is one of the most desirable communities on Galveston’s west end. The island is at its narrowest on the west end, so Sea Isle 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 cottage unique

This home sits on the beautiful Antascosa Canal, offering direct access to West Galveston Bay. Just across San Luis Pass Road are Sea Isle Beach and the Gulf of Mexico. The lot was specifically chosen to position the home for the breathtaking sunset view from the canal deck. The lot is also superbly situated within Sea Isle, right across the canal from the Sea Isle convenience store, bait camp, the West End Restaurant and Sand Bar, the swimming pool and the tennis courts.

Bring your watercraft! The house is adjoined by a private boat house and boat slip. Sea Isle’s private boat launches are available for your use.

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

Great place for fishing.

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time enjoy the location away from the craziness of Galveston yet clos enough to go to town for supplies or activities. Loved the pier and the bait shop and restaurant so close. Hose was clean and well stocked loved the outdoor space wish we could have used it more. Owner was great to work with with no crazy fees like some places have. Will plan to stay again with the kids or another get away with hubby in future. Five min drive from a great beach with no main steam traffic on it

Great Family Vacation Trip!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay here. It was a perfect fit for our 2 families of 4 adults and 4 kids. Very nice patio relaxing area and plenty of room for the kids to run around in the yard. Fishing was okay at this location with live shrimp from the boat dock area. Our largest fish of the week was a speckle trout around 20 inches long. Hardhead catfish was no problem catching. Another great thing of this location was the short walking distance to pool for the kids to swim and the marina, bait shop, general store, and restaurant. The bar/ grill below the main restaurant had karaoke on Friday night and great dancing jams on Saturday night. The people in the area were very nice and welcoming. I can say that we will definitely be looking forward to our next trip back.
