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.

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.

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.

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.

Fantastic location; clean, comfortable, convenient
We were looking for a place to stay with good access to the bay for fishing and boy did we find it. Well-kept house has boatslip with direct access to west bay. Marina, bait shop, restaurant and boat launch are all a very short walk away. Easy beach access too. What a spot!
Great Family Getaway Weekend
Our family had a great time. The home was perfect with fantastic outdoor living areas! We caught a few crabs, one croaker, and several weird looking fish that we think are toadfish! We definitely will keep your home in mind for another trip to Galveston! We even enjoyed listening to karaoke from the marina bar! It was a hoot!
Great place for fishing.
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
Barbara was very kind like everyone stated. We were there mainly to fish and we did catch a good amount of fish.
