Why Michael Smith chose Galveston Island

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. Close to Moody Gardens, Schlitterbahn, away from the crowds.

                                                                  Really good value, easy owner to work with.

                                                                  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.

                                                                  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 joints..like felt. Hope others have a great stay here in this tidy place.
