The canal front location in Sea Isle was great! We enjoyed the use of the kayaks and the walkability to the marina restaurant and bait shop.

The good: my kids loved fishing on the canal. It was clean. It's got everything you need fishing supplies kayaks etc. we brought a kayak not realized there are 4 at the property!! The neighbors were really nice and friendly. There were games books galore in the house which helped while the weather didn't cooperate. There was a jacuzzi tub in one bath we enjoyed. My kids loved the house! It's a little out from Galveston beach about 20 min but there's a public beach across the highway from the neighborhood. We enjoyed our stay thank you!!
