About the property

3 bed, 3 bath accessible canal home, oversized lot, private pool and boat slip

Our lovely waterfront home with private pool is located in the quaint community of Sea Isle. It is an immaculate three bedroom/three bath home with lots of deck space, a spacious yard and a view of West Bay. We have tried to provide everything you might need to enjoy a relaxing vacation with family and friends.

On the ground level, there is a gated entry and parking for at least seven vehicles. There is a large open bar area, a sport pool with volleyball net and a sand volleyball court. There is a lighted fishing platform with underwater and above-water fishing lights that make for great night fishing, and a fish cleaning station. Two fishing kayaks are available if you want to fish the bay, or for just cruising around the canals. A boat slip is available if arrangements are made in advance. Between Labor Day and Memorial Day there will be a sailboat docked at the property. If desired, we could arrange a sunset cruise. There is a bathroom with shower enclosure on this level. If you would like to bring a travel trailer, electrical hookups are available with rental for $20/night.

There are ramps leading up to the second level of the house. Although these ramps are a little too steep to meet ADA requirements, they are very useful for people with mobility issues and for rolling suitcases and ice chests. The second floor is the main level of the house. There is large deck with lounge seating and a table for outdoor dining. Connected around the corner, off of the dining room, is a smaller deck with a bar overlooking the pool area. The living room, dining and kitchen are all on this level, as well as two bedrooms and a bathroom. The living room has a 65 inch smart TV with smart DVD/Blu-Ray player (allow you to access your NetFlix, HuluPlus, Amazon, etc). There is a queen futon in this room for overflow sleeping if needed. The living room also has a game table. Board games, cards, puzzles and dominoes are provided. The dining room seats eight at the table and four at the bar. It is open to the kitchen and the living room. The kitchen has everything you need to cook for a large group. Basic small electrics are provided, plus a waffle iron and a Keurig coffee maker. A drip coffee maker is also provided. Centrally located to this area is a wet bar with icemaker. Also on this level is a bedroom with a queen bed and a twin futon, and a bedroom with a queen bed and twin bunks. Both bedrooms have TVs and smart DVD/Blu-ray players (allow you to access your NetFlix, HuluPlus, Amazon, etc). The bathroom on this floor has a shower with multiple grab bars and a very low threshold for easy entry, and a spacious vanity. The washer and dryer are also in this bathroom.

On the third level is the master suite with a king size bed. It has a TV with a smart DVD/Blu-ray player (allows you to access your NetFlix, HuluPlus, Amazon, etc). It has a private bath with combo tub/shower. A Keurig coffee maker is also provided so that you can have that first cup of the morning on your private balcony looking out over the pool, the canal and the bay.

The beach is a short golf cart ride away and Galveston Bay access is less than 200 yards away, right down our canal. The community of Sea Isle is a quiet residential community, with a very friendly vibe, but not a place for loud all-night parties. It offers a community swimming pool, tennis court, lighted pier, playground, live bait shop, convenience store, boat launch and a marina with fuel. There is a neighborhood bar with casual dining, pool, darts, shuffleboard, and karaoke, and upstairs, a restaurant offering fine dining. A gas station and an upscale grocery store are just 5 miles away. 'Seaglass'' is the perfect place to get away from it all, but if you are looking for more, the attractions of Galveston are less than 30 minutes away.

Galveston Island provides a variety of options for visitors including shopping and touring the historic district, enjoying great seafood at local restaurants, playing at Schlitterbahn Water Park, visiting Pleasure Pier Amusement Park, taking in performances at the 1894 Grand Opera House and observing the many offerings at Moody Gardens. There are many annual festivals and events such as Mardi Gras, AIA Sandcastle Competition, Lone Star Bike Rally, and Dickens on the Strand.

House Rules: Check-In is 4:00 pm, Check-Out is 11:00 am

No Smoking and No Pets are allowed at Seaglass.

12 guests maximum overnight, 20 guests maximum on property.

We are not responsible for any accidents, injuries or illnesses that occur while renters/guests are on the premises.

If you or your group incurs damage valued above the damage deposit, you will be liable.

About Kathryn Braddock

We both grew up visiting Galveston and brought our kids down before they could walk. We have always been beach side people, but once we tried the bay side, we were hooked.

Kathryn Braddock purchased this house in 2014

Why Kathryn Braddock chose Gulf Coast

The fishing and the sailing are both great from here and it's so nice to be able to go from water to house so easily. As soon as we saw the size and privacy of the lot, we knew that this was the house for us. The other thing that attracted us was the friendly people of Sea Isle.

What makes this house unique

We purchased this house in late 2014. We have redecorated it to have a more coastal feel and to accommodate various family combinations. We have also done extensive upgrades to the outdoor areas. A private sport pool has been added, along with a bar area and tropical landscaping. Of course, there are always new ideas of things to add, so keep checking back.

Best House Ever! Location - Location - Location!

  • 5 of 5

Seaglass was the perfect house for us! Had everything we wanted. A pool for cooling off and water play. The step down pier was great for launching and loading the nine kayaks we brought. The two piers with lights were just the thing for fishing. Just a hop, skip and a jump from the beach, only 20 minutes from the Strand. What more could we have asked for! Well, except for the rain. But that wasn't a problem either. The covered boat slip and fishing area let us fish rain or shine. My grandson was determined to catch a shark so we did a lot of fishing. My son-in-law caught a 25 inch Speckled Trout at the mouth of the canal in the misty rain. Yep, we like to fish and kayak! We had 4 trucks, 3 trailers and a golf cart with plenty of room to close the security gate (very nice feature).

The house was comfortable and amenities were super. It was nice having an ice machine so we didn't have to worry about purchasing bag ice. The beds were comfortable (a plus!), the kitchen was very nice for what cooking we did and with TVs in every bedroom we could all have our downtime. The property was clean and well maintained. The only slight problem was outside ants. That's just part of being outside and fishing, so we just sprayed and the problem was solved. We have rented beach/canal houses in Galveston for over 20 years and I must say this one was the best ever!

The owners were a pleasure - quick to answer your calls or texts. We will definitely be back. Already trying to determine the date for next year!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for the kind review. It is a great set-up for those who fish (my husband) and those who don't (me). Sorry about the ants. You are right it is a problem with being outdoors, but I will make a point to treat the yard.

The best house in Galveston!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house so much! We go to Galveston every summer and this is the first time we have rented a house and it was the best decision we could have made. The owners have decorated this house so nice and the pool area is awesome. It rained a little while we were there but there was so much to do around the house and we were even able to fish that it didn't matter at all. We will for sure book again next summer.
