The Cast-A-Way Cottage is a family and pet-friendly, 2 bedroom, one and a half bath, second row beach house with great ocean views and easy access to the beach. The cottage can comfortably sleep up to 9 guests. The master with King bed, bunk room with 5 twin beds (two bunk beds with a pull out trundle), and the living room memory foam queen sleeper sofa next to the fireplace will accommodate a maximum of 4 -6 adults and 3-5 children for a total of 9 guests. The property works amazingly for a small group of friends, two small families vacationing together, for a family that wants to bring friends or extra family members, for a couple that wants a romantic get-a-way, or for snowbirds looking for a warm spot to settle for the winter.
As of 4/1/2018 we will generally not allow check outs or check ins or change overs on Saturdays. Please check with us if you would like us to consider an exception but splitting the weekends is discouraged. Check outs on the following holidays are not permitted: New Years Day, Easter, Mother's Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve, and Christmas Day as cleaning crews are not available on these dates. If your reservation is terminated on one of these major holidays you will also be billed for that evenings stay as well.
Cast-A-Way cottage has been beautifully and warmly remodeled with high end beach finishes and decorated with all brand new furnishings and linens in 2016. New living room seating, outdoor seating, planter boxes, landscaping, and a new roof were added in the spring of 2017. In 2018 the living room couch and sleeper sofa were replaced with a new couch and mattress identical to the old one. This is an open concept house with 20 foot ceilings and great beam architecture. It is close to all of the attractions of Galveston, but also minutes to Christmas Bay for great fishing. There are fantastic views of the beach from the deck, and you can even watch your kids play on the beach while you cook inside the kitchen, lounge inside on the very comfortable couch, or eat at the indoor or outdoor tables.
The kids will adore the nautically themed bunkroom with matching Tommy Hilfiger anchor linens and attached 1/2 bath for easy clean up. Each of the 4 bunks is equipped with its own ship light and electric plug for charging electronic devices. There are 2 TV's in the bunk room so groups of children of different ages may all enjoy watching TV or playing video games together when they need a quiet break from the sun and surf. An under bunk trundle bed is available with a twin sized comfy mattress for times when a fifth bed or comfortable lounging space is needed in the bunk room. Plenty of storage is available for unpacking those bags and keeping items organized.
You will love the outdoor entertaining spaces and open airy feeling that this cottage has. Abundant and flexible seating with great views of the beach from all of the social spaces means nobody will go without a view. The kitchen is equipped with everything you need to prepare a fantastic meal, adult beverage, or coffee and serve it in style. If cooking is not on your list of things to do, then enjoy the two bayside restaurants located directly in Sea Isle blocks from the house. Enjoy listening to your favorite music on the indoor/outdoor speaker with Bluetooth connectivity. Use your devices with high speed Internet easily. Curl up on the couch and pick a novel to read from our library or lounge on the beach with your book. Watch a movie, gaze at the stars under a warm breeze, make smores in the fire pit while you listen to the waves crash on shore, bike for miles down a seemingly unending beach, play a game, or start a puzzle. The options are all here for you to enjoy. At the end of the day retire to your private master oasis with plush linens and a super comfy bed.
