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 small fee. Last year the fee was $25. They tell us they open the pool for the Spring/Summer season when the weather warms up.

Cool Canal House

  • 5 of 5

Great beach house for family and friends. It made for a perfect little vacation. We love to fish!! The balcony and lower deck provided an excellent place. It was clean and well kept. Both of my children wanted to stay longer. Nice kitchen area, large enough for two cooks to pull together a grand dinner and an awesome breakfast.The owners were great and satisfaction was top priority. I would recommend this beach house for sure. this was exactly what we needed. We truly enjoyed our weekend. Looking forward to our next beach house visit.

Wonderful place!

  • 5 of 5

My family really enjoyed staying at this cute home. It was nice having the upstairs separated from the downstairs for privacy. The people who wanted to stay up late fishing stayed downstairs and the early to bed early to rise group stayed upstairs! We really made use of the outdoor tv to entertain us during night fishing. My kids totally enjoyed the downstairs game room! It was all I could do to get them to stop playing and go to bed! We did walk the 4 blocks to the beach once but since we wanted to take chairs, towels, coolers, etc., the rest of the time we just packed up the car and drove. My family is already asking when we will be headed back there - thank you for a lovely family vacation!

It was a very nice property and nice upstairs main house.

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place to stay to just relax. Upstairs area was great and had Satellite TV, Wifi. Restrooms upstairs were great and clean. Now the only downside was the downstairs room and playroom. As soon as you open the door it smelled like mold or something similar... it was a very pungent smell, there was no way anyone could stand being in there, much less sleep there (bunk bed and separate bed).

But if I leave out the downstairs it was great. I had a small issue with locks and owner fixed it fast with no problems, so that was great! Outdoor patio furniture downstairs is functional and upstairs balcony was very nice with a great big table to sit and gather.

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed your stay at our home! Downstairs rooms in Galveston all have a beachy aroma. This is the first time someone reported It being so strong. We have added an automatic air freshener which should help quite a bit. Thank you for staying with us!

The property is very dated, not anything like the pictures.

  • 1 of 5

My first impression of the property when we stepped inside was a total disappointment. The rooms are small. The beds are uncomfortable, the bedding and towels are questionable. The dishwasher was not properly placed, to use it you'll have to lift the counter top to open it, the stove is missing a knob. The only positive thing I can say about it is that my kids love the canoe, kayak and paddle boat, they had fun using those. We would never come back and would not recommended it.

Owner's Response: Well when they say you can’t please everyone, I guess this is what they mean. To speak to some of your comments, our home is exactly like the pictures, since that is where all the pictures were taken, so this comment is confusing to us. Our bedrooms are all standard size except for the master which is greatly oversized. The review just before this one refers to our home as a "large house," so I guess it just depends on your perspective. We have pillowtop mattresses with memory foam toppers on two of the beds. We also have firmer mattresses on other beds, so there is a variety of “comfort levels” to choose from. You may have noticed that there is not a place for a built-in dishwasher in the kitchen. Until we can have the kitchen remodeled, we thought it was more important to have a dishwasher available for our guests. I am not happy to hear our stove is missing a knob. We would have appreciated a phone call letting us know about this or any of your other issues. You booked on line and we received no response from you from any of the emails we sent to you. We are sorry you were disappointed in our home but must disagree with the comments you made above. We are glad to hear you enjoyed our water toys.
