About the Property

3 Bdrm, 2-1/2 Bath, Sleeps 8

Welcome to Bay Dreaming! A canal front home on Galveston's west end in the Sea Isle subdivision; one of Galveston's premier communities offering many amenities - swimming pool, tennis courts, marina with bait shop and more.

This home can sleep a family or group up to 8, with 1 king, 1 queen and 2 sets of bunk beds. The house offers an open floor plan that connects all the main living spaces, making it perfect for entertaining. The dining table sits 6 with additional seating for 4 at the large kitchen island. There are two full baths upstairs with a 1/2 bath and outdoor shower on the ground floor.

There is a flat screen TV with basic cable, DVD player, a Wii and a moderate selection of DVDs and games in the living room. In addition, the house is fully loaded with free WiFi, full linens, towels, and a well equipped kitchen. However, we do ask that you bring beach towels; a washer and dryer are located in the garage for your use.

The outdoor area is as inviting and comfortable as the indoors. The upper deck is a wraparound with seating overlooking the canal for dining, playing cards, or socializing. The deck has a gate to help keep pets from wandering off.

The downstairs area is spacious and completely shaded with additional outdoor furniture and hammocks. Enjoy swimming, grilling or fishing off the dock with plenty of room for family and friends to gather around and relax. Open up the Tiki bar for more entertaining options! When the sun sets, roast s’mores over the fire pit!

For your convenience, we offer our guests the use of our golf cart, beach toys, inflatables, limited fishing gear and all non-motorized water craft (kayaks and paddle boards); Sea Isle beach access is just across the main road.

Bay Dreaming is our home away from home and we are excited to be able to share it with you! We ask that you respect our home as you would your own. We love our own four legged family members so we welcome pets, just clean up after your pet accordingly.

Parties, weddings, receptions, or company festivities are not allowed. We rent only to family/small groups and responsible adults older than 25 years of age. Adults cannot rent properties on behalf of underage guests. Any use of the property for purposes other than family vacations must be addressed when booking the reservation.

Any intent to use the boat lift must be expressed at the time of reservation, and requires an additional fee to move the owner’s boat from the house.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: We bought this house in late 2014, fulfilling our own dreams of owning a canal home. We love to fish and enjoy all aspects of being out on the water!

Why the Owner Chose Galveston, TX, USA:
We chose Sea Isle because of all the great amenities within the subdivision. The restaurant and marina are top notch. The pool and kiddie park are great. The house sits in the perfect location to play with water toys, on the calmer bayside of the island, yet it's only a short ride away from the beach fun at Sea Isle's private beach on the gulf side.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Being the first canal in from the bay allows for quick access to fishing and water fun, or just stay in the canal to float around and/or exercise on the paddle boards. The house underwent a significant remodel in 2009, most of the interior is like brand new.
