The Sea Isle pool is only open Memorial Day weekend to Labor Day weekend and spring break depending on the weather. If you choose to have access to the pool, let me know is advance so I can get one for you. The pass covers 10 guest for 1 week.

PETS: 2 pets maximum. You will be asked to register your pet on the rental agreement. The pet fee is $50/pet. This is a non-refundable fee. Please keep in mind there is no fence on the property but there is a gated deck. We ask that pets be left on the deck when you are not home. VRBO/HomeAway/Vacationrentals does not properly calculate the pet fee when an automatic quote is given. Please take this into consideration when reviewing your automatic quote. Your pet fee will be $50/pet. 2 pet maximum.

RATES: Our rates are very competitive already; however, if it is off season and you are booking a last minute trip we may be negotiable. Do not hesitate to contact us with an offer!

CLEANING FEES: Cleaning fee is a low $75.00 and that includes linens and towels at no extra charge!

WEEKENDS: Weekends are a 2 night minimum during summer (Friday & Saturday). If the house is vacant one of the nights, we will rent just the one nights. We will not book it until the Thursday before the night you are wanting just the one night.

OUTSTANDING Vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was PERFECT! Home was clean with a full kitchen & 2 full baths. Owner communicated well. We didn't want for for anything. Our only problem was that we wish we had booked it for longer! 1 week was not enough to do all we wanted to do. Next time we'll be renting for 2 weeks. We loved this home. Can't wait to stay there again. Appliances were clean and worked well. Towels & linens were clean & in good shape. Having use of the washer & dryer all week was a major plus. Pool was beautiful & conveniently close. Beach was gorgeous & conveniently close to home also. So glad we found it. Thanks, Michael Smith. Look forward to seeing us again & again.

Really good value, easy owner to work with.

  • 5 of 5

This is not the absolute nicest house you’ll ever stay in - but it’s also far from the most expensive rental you’ll find. Nice neighborhood, beach is just across the street, clean, everything works, easy owner. This is a really good little rental beach house, we’ll do it again.

Owner's Response: Hi Neal, thanks for the feedback. There are some major upgrades that will be done before Spring that will add to the house and renters experience. I hope you will rent again to check them out!

A good price and plenty of room.

  • 4 of 5

We had a nice stay for our group. There was plenty of room and we enjoyed being together. We did not realize that no paper products or supplies would be provided until the a day before. We were able to bring these items at no great expense but we some how missed that when we booked. The view is really nice and the street was calm. There are two bedrooms and a nice bunk room. The bunks are a bit squeaky, so I suggest bringing something to put in the felt. Hope others have a great stay here in this tidy place.

Why Michael Smith chose Galveston

Sea Isle is a subdivision that offers the most amenities so we wanted something guest could rent and have options during their stay. Sea Isle has a playground, basketball court, tennis court, volleyball, boat launch, marina, small grocery store, restaurant, bar (with live music in the summer), beach access and fishing pier. You really don't have to leave the community if you don't want to. Rent a golf cart or bikes and you are set!

What makes this house unique

When you sit on the porch of this home you can enjoy the Gulf breeze. It is just a short walk, bike ride or golf cart ride from the beach all all the subdivision amenities.
