About the property

3 Bedroom, 3.5 Bathroom with Panoramic Ocean Front Views

The most unique, luxurious, and modern beachfront residence on Galveston Island. Look no further, the Glass House, as it's known and recognized, is THE 'Architectural Masterpiece' in Galveston. It's so captivating in its artistic design and butterfly structure, it was featured in the island's local magazine, Galveston Monthly. Industrial contemporary is the theme and Villa Seamone showcases all the amenities of a contemporary lodge or modern chalet right on the beach.

With a wraparound deck offering panoramic views of ocean and bay this is THE most popular place to relax and unwind amongst treasured friends, it features a nightly landscape of stars so brilliant, one can feel as though they are close enough to touch.

Bedrooms all feature private beachfront balconies with contemporary design elements that blend ever so smoothly with eye catching beach decor. Many furniture pieces were designed and hand made to match the contemporary nautical theme. The master bedroom features a king size bed with all the elements of comfort and style. The two guest bedrooms come with queen size beds and a spectacular coastal view. All bathrooms showcase upscale design elements with large walk in showers, including a full size Jacuzzi tub in the master bath for the ultimate in relaxation.

A/V electronics feature the latest technology including Bose Surround Sound, and there are three televisions throughout. Kitchen and dining areas are spacious with full views of the ocean.

The addition of imported Italian lighting throughout this exquisite domain is chic and stylish, and gives Villa Seamone her sex appeal. Knotted pine floors throughout are both durable and beautiful and add just the right touch.

The comfortable living area is open and large enough for a full on dance contest! And the ceilings---at least 25 feet high with a distinct, industrial look, showcase the “WOW” factor.

Finally, the most exceptional feature about Villa Seamone is the living room’s floor to ceiling glass windows that exhibit a grand canvas of rolling ocean waves right before your very eyes. Tranquil, mesmerizing, and breathtaking.

You gotta have this as your luxury couples getaway, corporate boondoggle or even better, the reunion of forever friends or family to make memories of a lifetime! Villa Seamone is paradise with a true coastal resort feel. If you have an intoxicating appetite for a private, upscale getaway, don't miss out on this opportunity--It's “to die for” and that's all she wrote! I do have one final thought. This house does not rent out for events over 10 people, high school prom. Adults are required to be will children under 21 during rented period.

About Sally Roan

A native of Texas, I moved to Houston for a career in 1992. Fortunately, I was blessed with a strong work ethic and a desire to win and carve a successful path for my future. I landed a professional career that allowed me to grow, evolve, and prosper into an entrepreneur in a successful partnership. Hard work and perseverance paid off, and we sold our business in 2007. As luck would have it, I found Villa Seamone at just the right time and she's been a second dream home ever since. Now it's time to share her with those who cherish and appreciate the fruits of hard work and success. She reminds me every day that she is my rose and I am blessed with her scent that is truly delightful not only for me but for the rest of the world to admire and enjoy.

Sally Roan purchased this house in 2007

Why Sally Roan chose Galveston

First, all my guests providing reviews give Villa Seamone the best rating with complete satisfaction. That's amazing! Most of all is the story....I fell in love with Villa Seamone the moment I saw her while walking on the beach. I rented a place and my father visited from Dallas. We walked the beach one morning and when I saw her, she took my breath away. I remember thinking after I saw the 'For Sale' sign posting, 'whoever buys this house will be the luckiest person ever'. Never in a million years did I think it would be me. When I think back at how this all came about, I still get goose bumps. I am pinching myself today with a big smile on my face. Luck, timing, and my special angel in heaven was watching over me. Thanks Mom!

What makes this house unique

OMG, Everything about Villa Seamone is UNIQUE. The structure is captivating from the beach. Everyone recognizes 'The Glass House' if she's part of a conversation. The deck and balconies are perfect for rest and relaxation. Inside, the structure, lighting, and upscale design features are mesmerizing. Finally, the views from all areas of the house, coupled with the cathedral ceilings are just absolutely breathtaking. Villa Seamone is an extraordinary masterpiece!

A peaceful time to unplug and experience beachfront luxury

  • 5 of 5

Our long weekend at Villa Seamone was beyond all expectations: from the attention to details (both pre and post-stay) to the incredible contemporary condo design and furnishings to the ease of amenities to the incredible view and sounds of Galveston beach within 100 yards of the multiple balconies. There was no reason to leave the property...and why would you? Everything you would ever need was there. And, the best part...a beautiful beach for seemingly endless walks.

We simply can't recommend this property and experience any more highly.

Most sincerely,

Brad and Shannon Lucky

Perfect Galveston Family Vacation Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect Galveston vacation getaway for the family!! The house truly exceeded all expectations! The pictures and descriptions do not do this house justice. The modern industrial design is one-of-a-kind awesome, and the house was very clean, comfortable, and well-maintained. We enjoyed the beautiful sunrises / sundowns from the comfort of the many decks, and the beach was literally just steps away . The decor was very impressive as well. Rooms and beds were very comfortable with each one having its own deck and great beach views. Communications with the owner were very smooth and seamless. Highly recommended; definitely looking forward to our next trip back already!
