Property description

The Blue Anchor I is NOT available for rental to prom groups or large parties, we apologize.

Our home is located on a canal in Sea Isle. We have an extra lot adjacent to the home that is great for kids to play and relax.

THIS HOME WAS COMPLETELY REMODELED (2013) DOWN TO THE STUDS; EVERYTHING NEW. New electrical, plumbing, painting, flooring (carpet/tile), crown, kitchen cabinets, HVAC, appliances (oven, range, microwave, washer/dryer), windows, exterior siding, roof, deck.

There is great fishing off our bulkhead. You also have access to the private boat launch at the marina (with bait shop).

Lots of space to enjoy the outside while still having a comfortable retreat on the main floor, upstairs or the guest quarters downstairs. Great for family gatherings and weekend getaways. The master bedroom has one queen bed and private full bathroom with tub and shower. The upstairs is a split loft consisting of the 2 other sleeping areas. The upstairs loft has 2 full beds on each side and a full bathroom, also with tub and shower. The last sleeping area is downstairs in a finished area on the ground floor. This area has 2 full beds, bathroom and laundry room. The downstairs guest can either use the showers upstairs or utilize the private outdoor shower.

We are happy to extend our home to you so you can make it your home during your stay at the Blue Anchor I.

Sea Isle Beach

Our home is a short walk from the Sea Isle's private beach for homeowners and guests. The neighborhood is fantastic and you can almost never drive you car once you get to Sea Isle. The marina area is full of activity: Outdoor bar, great restaurant, convenient store, bait shop, gaming area with video games and pool tables. During the warm months, the neighborhood pool is a great place to cool off and great for kids.

Downtown Galveston is full of entertainment and savory restaurants. It is about a 15-20 minute drive from our home in Sea Isle.

Bay fishing is fantastic in west bay. If you need recommendations for guides, just let us know. In addition, Sea Isle Homeowners Association built a 300 foot pier into west bay for great fishing without a boat.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: Our family has been coming to Sea Isle for over 15 years. We have extended family that owns homes here too. We live on the mainland in the Clear Lake area, but frequent Sea Isle regularly. It is a great place for our kids (2 boys: 6yr and 4yr) to grow up and form fun memories of being at the beach and on the bay.

Why the Owner Chose Sea Isle, Galveston, TX, USA:
Since our family and extending family (including friends of course) enjoy getting together just far enough away from it all, we just had to join the fun and buy property in Sea Isle. It is a great neighborhood with great people. Our kids still get excited every time we tell them we are going to the beach. All the places that you could choose to stay on the island, Sea Isle is the best bet with all the vacation comforts. Whether you want to wet a line while sitting on the bulkhead, or stroll down the street to the beach, or walk/golfcart to the neighborhood bar & grill (The Sandbar) - you have it all. Our family loves everything about Sea Isle, and we are sure you will feel the same way when we share our home with you for your Sea Isle vacation or getaway.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
As mentioned in the main description. This home was purchased and we completely remodeled EVERY aspect of the home. We estimate that we even replaced about 80% of the studs, so it is basically new construction. We did not go cheap on the remodel. Custom kitchen cabinets with soft close hinges. The counter tops throughout the home (kitchen and bathrooms) are Silestone. The carpet is plush and tile in kitchen, dining, bathrooms as well as the downstairs private studio with 2 double beds and bathroom. The raised deck, entry stairs front and back, is all new construction. The entire downstairs patio/deck is 600sqft+ of new concrete stepping down to the 100ft of water/canal front.
