About the Property

Sea Lover Cottage – A Seaside Retreat

This 3 bedroom, 2 bath (sleeps 10 comfortably) waterfront home sits on the beautiful Vida Canal in Terramar Beach 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 Terramar Beach area, away from the hustle and bustle of city life, Sea Lover Cottage sits on the beautiful Vida Canal and offers easy proximity to the bay and to the beach at an affordable price. Sea Lover Cottage is clean and bright, and well-appointed.

Enjoy your coffee and start your day by viewing a glorious sunrise from the canal deck. 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 overhead lights. Complete your day by grilling your catch and relaxing in the warm evening breezes constant through the lower level boat house.


If entertainment and excitement are for you, Sea Lover Cottage is 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 Sea Lover Cottage. This home sits on the beautiful Vida Canal. The Vida Canal opens to the Terramar Navigation Channel, which opens 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. Terramar’s boat launch is available for your use. The Terramar Navigation Channel connects Terramar’s boat launch area, its turning basin, and its four 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 right on the dock and barbecue your catch on the grill conveniently located. Your private dock includes overhead lights for fun night-time fishing. Trout, redfish, flounder as well as blue and stone crabs are caught right off Sea Lover 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 Terramar Beach and the Gulf of Mexico. Sea Lover 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.

Terramar Beach Community

Beach – The beach on the Gulf may be reached from the Terramar Beach main entrance at the end of Terramar Drive, or across any of the three public walkovers.

Swimming Pool – A beautiful outdoor pool, in a picturesque setting, is available for your use from Memorial Day weekend until September 30 (weather permitting) on Wednesday through Monday. The pool is closed on Tuesdays. Pursuant to a City of Galveston ordinance, children under the age of 14 must be accompanied by an adult who is responsible for their safety and behavior.

Boat Launch and Pier – There is a private boat launch ramp with a turning basin and dredged navigation channel extending into West Galveston Bay. The boat ramp recently underwent repairs. It is a brief 20 minutes by boat to San Luis Pass and the Gulf of Mexico.

Please also visit the nearby pavilion.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 1999

About: The owner grew up in Baltimore and water has always been a part of her life. As a child, she enjoyed summers along the Chesapeake Bay in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware and Ocean City, Maryland. Later in life, she became a world traveler and has lived in many exotic locations, including Azerbaijan. While there, she vacationed along the Caspian Sea in what are called “dachas” – a Russian word for seasonal second-homes. After relocating to Texas, she began searching for her own dacha where she could spend time with her family and pass on some of her fondest memories. She seized the opportunity to settle on Galveston Island in beautiful Terramar Beach. Sea Lover Cottage is affectionately referred to among family and friends as “the Dacha.”
