No lines at restaurants and area amenities. Just open the doors and let the sea breeze waft through the house. Watch your favorite football team play, then enjoy the deck. Treat yourselves to a relaxing weekend at the beach. My lovely West End house is located in the quaint Sea Isle subdivision on Galveston Island's West Beach and is located within easy walking distance (2.5 blocks) from the beach, next to a bird sanctuary (great for birding), a marina with 2 private boat ramps on the bay side, a community swimming pool (open during the summer months, fee for use), private fishing pier on the bay side, kid's playground, tennis court, a bar and two restaurants – one casual and one that is more fine dining (reservations suggested during the high season). House amenities include a fully stocked kitchen, a flat screen TV with AT&T UVerse cable and high speed Wi-Fi, 2 queen sized beds, IKEA sofa that opens to make a full sized bed in the living room (sleeps 4-5 comfortably), 2 full baths, windows in every room which all open to allow the sea breezes through, washer & dryer in the unconnected downstairs garage. Sea Isle has a private beach parking area with a walkway over the dunes to get to the beach. Golf cart rentals available from several vendors close by to cruise Sea Isle and ride to the beach. They will deliver and pick up the cart - no need to go there! If you're looking for the laid back beach experience, then Sea Isle is just perfect for that. It's a quiet neighborhood that's easily walkable. Start your day with coffee on the front deck and enjoy the sunrise over the ocean or a sunrise walk on the beach. Then end your day the same spot with a glass of wine, cocktail or your favorite beverage and enjoy the sea breezes. My favorite place to watch the the sunset is at the end of the fishing pier on the bay side of the neighborhood each evening. Surrounded by the waters of the west bay -- it's absolutely sublime. Guests who have stayed at my house have said it's like coming back to their own home at the end of each day. You have access to the full house and outside parking... it's a house rental (owner is not on site). You have access to the private community pool during the high season) – fee is $50 for up to 10 people for a week. Owner can set up pool access with the Sea Isle HOA office. Please note: THIS IS A NON-SMOKING HOUSE. You get an automatic 10% discount with any week long (7-day) booking. Sea Isle is located about 20 minutes from attractions such as Schlitterbahn Waterpark, Moody Gardens, Rain Forest Café, The Strand downtown historical district and Galveston's new Pleasure Pier. Galveston is a 20 min. drive into town from Sea Isle. We are less than an hour from Hobby Airport in Houston so you won't spend a lot of time getting here. I have directions with maps I will send you in advance of your stay. Along with tips on the house, neighborhood, restaurants, etc. Guests have said they love our area recommendations. Here's a couple quest review quotes: 'Although we have been to Galveston many times, this was our first time to stay in this area. It was wonderful. The house was as promised, the neighborhood clean and it is a short drive or walk to the beach. James is a great host, he had an honest desire to make sure we were comfortable and enjoyed our stay. Already looking forward to our next visit.' – Janis 'What an amazing first experience. James made every step of the process seamless and his responsiveness gave me the comfort level I was looking for when booking for the first time. His home was exactly as described and just what we needed. The home was very clean, had all the essentials for us to be self sufficient, and the breeze off the Gulf was perfect. The neighborhood is clean and quiet and we left my truck unlocked every night without worry. The WiFi access was great and the info Jim sends you ahead of your arrival is very helpful. Will be back without a doubt.' – Dillon Book my house and see for yourself!

Cozy Beach House-Perfect Location for a Perfect Get-Away
My husband and I rented this wonderful house for a long weekend getaway and we can't wait to come back! It's super clean and wonderfully decorated in a beach motif and has all the amenities one needs for a comfortable stay. The location is close enough to the beach to walk if you choose, but there is also a public beach parking area right across San Luis Pass Road, if you would rather drive. The owner, Jim, is a Dream Host! He makes sure that you have everything you need and all your questions are answered to ensure you have a worry free stay. He also offers up many suggestions on where to dine out or shop, locally and in Galveston. We ate at a couple of different places based upon his suggestions and were not disappointed. I feel like we won the lottery in renting a house for our trip. This is our first time staying at this area in Galveston and we are ready to get back. :)

Comfortable family accommodations and walking distance from the beach.
Comfortable family accommodations with a fully stocked kitchen, many spices and basics that can be available for cooking anything on the spot. We decided to enjoy local restaurants ourselves and only cooked breakfast. Our small pet was also welcome and comfortable.

Great house at the right price!
My son and I thoroughly enjoyed our time at this cozy yet roomy beach bungalow. Everything we needed was provided. It was very near the beach and we loved having access to the community pool and the little store. The front porch was awesome! I loved sitting out there in the evenings and Galveston proper and all it's attractions were just a 20 minute drive from us. I would definitely recommend this home!

Comfortable living by the ocean
A very good location at a good price. Nice pool , playground and neighbor hood. Good places to eat close by and several places close for snacks and drinks. Jim R. was easy to deal with and always in touch. A very nice place for 2 to 4 people.

Cozy Galveston Beach House
My family of four had a great time staying at this beach house. This place offers lots of amenities including cooking items, board games, two spacious bed rooms and two bathrooms. There was plenty of parking available at the beach and plenty of room for everyone at the beach. The fishing pier was also nice and offered a good sunset view. I will definitely book this place again, when we return to Galveston. The owner is very helpful and provides a lot of information in regards to local attractions and good places to eat.

Loved sitting outside on the porch
A short mother/daughters beach trip after high school graduation. We enjoyed the extra room of the house instead of being in a hotel. The outside porch was great for reading and snacks outside. We did have several issues with various things in the house:not being able to get the dvd to work, and the thermostat went out (AC)on Wed eve. While we were out for the day on Thurs. the owner was able to contact someone to replace it and then we had AC again. I loved the house, but I was disappointed and not able to just completely relax and enjoy my vacation with NO worries.

Thank for your feedback and I'm glad you enjoyed the house. Apologies for the trouble with the thermostat. However, these things are unexpected and I did get it fixed quite quickly. Remember, you're staying at a house and not a hotel room. So, just like your home, things happen. But, I pride myself on responding quickly and I was glad we got the problem remedied quickly. As for the DVD, it's brand new. So, I'm not sure why you had trouble. No reports since you left, but we will look into it. Many thanks! – Jim

Excellent place with a great location.
Jim was a great person to work with and has a nice place in a quiet layed back location. The house is comfortable and we enjoyed staying there. Galveston is a nice place to relax and we really enjoyed our vacation. Staying where we did helped to make our stay more enjoyable.
