Welcome to 'The Enchanted Riviera!!

Come enjoy the sun and the sea in this CANAL FRONT home in Sea Isle on Galveston Island! Park your boat in our slip, swim or sunbathe in the canal or fish from the deck!! Plus the beach is only 4 blocks away! The best of all that Galveston has to offer is here!

We are located only minutes from the Pleasure Pier, Moody Gardens, Schlitterbahn Water Park, Galveston State Park, the movie theater, the miniature golf course, the Airplane Museum and even NASA and the Kemah Boardwalk are close enough if you’d like to spend a day there! Marketing.Galveston.com shows a calendar of events.

We are on the west side of the island and only minutes from the Strand and Stewart Beach.

Plus Sea Isle has a neighborhood pool, tennis courts, restaurant and bar. To use their amenities you go into the Sea Isle office and pay a fee. The office is only open from 10-5 Monday through Friday. Last year the fee was $100. That should cover 10 people for 7 days. They tell us they open the pool for the Spring/Summer season when the weather warms up.

This home comfortably sleeps 20. Arrangements include a master bedroom with a king bed, full size futon plus a private bath with a tub and separate shower. The second master bedroom has a queen size bed, a full size futon plus a private full bath. Bedroom three comes with a full over queen sized bunk bed (sleeps 4). . Bedroom four is a separate apartment downstairs with twin bunk beds, a double bed plus a half bath. The toilet downstairs also has a grab bar on one wall. There is also an outside shower downstairs. The living room is furnished with a queen sized sleeper sofa plus a full size futon. There is a half bath in the hallway.

The kitchen is fully equipped with pots and pans and cooking utensils. It has a stove with an oven, dishwasher, microwave and all the comforts of home! Central A/C and ceiling fans throughout. The living room has a large, flat screen TV and a DVD player. There is also a tv and dvd player in each bedroom.

Our home has a nice sized deck that overlooks the canal. Downstairs we also have a wood deck on the side of the house with a charcoal grill plus a covered sitting area just next to the canal and boat slip. The outdoor sitting area has a 43" flat screen tv. Just a few steps away we have an indoor game room that includes a combo mini pool table/air hockey/ping pong/field hockey for those afternoons where you need some time away from the sun!!

We have a private dock for fishing, swimming, kayaking, etc. It includes a swing, and a fixed ladder to make it easy for you to get out of the canal after that refreshing swim or just sunning on your float. We have a canoe, a paddle boat and 2 kayaks for our guests to enjoy. We have a small fire pit if you'd like to roast marshmallows or just enjoy a campfire!

We had family reunion event and simply had a ball. Everyone was 100% please with our stay.

  • 5 of 5

Many of us are pretty much water babies. Between the canal, the boats that came with the house and the beach, we all had a wonderful experience staying at The Riviera. Thank you, John for having exactly what we all needed. We fished using the night fishing light, put down crab traps with catch success and watched a beautiful fireworks display on the West end. The unit was more comfortable than we actually expected.

Great Deal For Your Money

  • 4 of 5

I like this house a lot and the host was great. It was right on the water, and the light in the water was good but we didn't catch any fish from there. The house was decorated cute , I loved the bathrooms. I liked having a code on all the doors the same. There was only one thing I didn't like was one of the bedrooms that was down stairs because it had a musty smell in it. My husband was going to sleep in there because its close to where they fished but the smell was bad. I think it could be taken care of if aired out really good. Another thing you had to pay to use the pool. It said 25.00 , but when we went to it they said it was a 100.00. There is a city pool there that is 5.00 in and out all day. The beach is close by. There are several entrances you can enter on , and we drove right to the water. We would definitely stay here again.

Owner's Response: We are so glad to hear you enjoyed your stay! We have no control over the pool admission fee. The last we heard that fee admitted 10 people for 7 days, so for some it is a good deal, not so much for others. We are sorry to hear the downstairs smelled musty. We found that the air conditioner had been turned off. We leave it running at all times just for that reason. Please hurry back soon!!

Great spot to get away

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for my son's prom event. We had a great time, they was plenty of space, comfortable accommodations and a lot to do there with the peddleboat, canoe and Kayaks. The fishing was good as well. I did have a couple of questions while we were there and John responded to my emails quickly. All in all, great place, we will be back!

Very Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

The property looks exactly like the picture. The owners are spot on. We had to call twice and they were right there! The property is slightly away from the heart of the sea wall but if you a are looking for quiet this is your property. Thanks for letting us stay! Debbie T McKinney Texas
