    Additional Location Information
    Sea Isle is located on Galveston's West End. It is about 15 minutes from the Seawall/beach/ historic areas. Sea Isle has a community swimming pool (including kiddie), tennis courts and play area. We have a marina that has lighting and a local bait store. Our beach has it's own EMT services as well as dining. Galveston is truly a city with something for everyone. You can visit Schlitterbahn, Moody Gardens, a wide variety of museums and historic homes. Should your vacation only include the sand, sea and sun, you can experience all of that from our home. Sea Isle's private beach has about 1.6 miles of beautiful, secluded beach. Our home has a bright, open concept with an upper and lower deck. Patio chairs allow you to enjoy both the sunrise and beautiful sunset. We are located equidistant between the beach and the bay. Our marina allows you to fish and cook your catch with our grill. Our tiki bar provides a fun, outdoor hang out that is sure to please. When at home, you have t... more

Unfortunately the 1st "day" of the rental was not as expected. When we arrived the place was a mess and had not been cleaned. Several hours were wasted waiting for the cleaning crew and then finally they came and cleaned the house but by then it was already dark. The owner was apologetic and did the best they could under the circumstances. The house was much smaller than the pictures appear on FlipKey web site. "Sleeps 12" is a misnomer. To "sleep 12" two people have to sleep on couches. And, one of the sofas in the living room was cloth and it was filthy dirty. I mean grungy dirty. Otherwise house was clean and has been remodeled inside. "Across the street from the beach" means a 1/2 mile walk each way so we had to rent 2 golf carts ($330.00). NO CELL SERVICE AT ALL.

I just felt things were misrepresented.
For $2,100.00 + cart rentals though clearly not worth it. Would never do it again.

Management response:

It it unfortunate that our home did not meet your expectations. Beginning your vacation in a home that wasnt prepared was unacceptable. We responded promptly to rectify this unforseen error. Our photos accurately depicted our home: it sleeps 12 in beds (including two on a sofa couch which is a Queen). The home is truly the distance to the beach... more

Outstanding property, we loved everything about it. Very close to the beach, pool and marina. The home has all the modern convinces and the layout is perfect. The tiki bar is great as well as the covered picnic table area. From the front porch you can see and hear the water from the beach. A cool breeze from the water keeps it so nice, from drinking coffee in the morning or reading a book in the evening it is wonderful. We played games at night at the tiki bar under the colorful lights and never even saw a fly, we are used to fighting bugs outside at night, not here,not at all. We brought our two grand kids 11 & 12 they, like us did not want to leave they had a blast. We have so many memories from here. The owners are the nicest people and made sure every detail was taken care of. You will not run out of activities, never a dull moment. We are already planing our return. Be sure to check out the Stand area in town, the shops are great and the history of the area is very... more
