  • Galveston Bayhouse on Main Canal with  Bay View
    SUPERHOSTEntire house · 6 guests · 4 beds · 1.5 baths
    Galveston Bayhouse on Main Canal with Bay View

    The cute "Yellow Gator" cottage with amazing views is in Galveston's Sea Isle community. It's a 2 bedroom that sleeps 6 (with queen sleeper sofa). The house with boat dock and hot/cold outdoor shower is just 100 meters from West Galveston Bay, easily accessed by the canal. Easy 1000 meters walk/drive to the beach. Fishing is fantastic in this area even from the dock. 25 minute drive to city of Galveston. The neighborhood has a full service marina, restaurant and bar.

    What guests are saying:

    “This home was everything we needed for a wonderful Father’s Day weekend. We were able to fish right from the backyard and also drop in our kayaks and paddle the canal with leisure. The beach access was less than a 5 minute drive away which was perfect to go boogie board and then come home for a quick lunch and a long nap. The evenings were for night fishing thanks to the underwater light and the boat dock. The beds were comfy and the kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed. Enjoy your morning coffee off the back deck and watch the amazing sunset from the front deck, this vacation home has it all! Thank you Doug and Karen for your wonderful hospitality, my family and I appreciate you both.”

Most importantly, walking distance to the beach!

    What guests are saying:

    “Malcom's place was exactly what we were looking for! It was a very chill, fun stay. Everything was spotlessly clean, which is especially important during all of this going on. He was very attentive and responded quickly every time we messaged. Everything was exactly as we expected, with the small exception of the walk to the beach being about a mile. Definitely within walking distance, but not if you're trying to bring anything with you for a long beach day. Overall an awesome stay and we would highly recommend it to anyone!”

    Our cottage built in 1890 is located in the Central District of the island in a colorful neighborhood just off Broadway. We are only One Mile from the Beach, Pleasure Pier, The Strand District or Cruise Ship parking terminals. Enjoy plentiful breezes on the front porch or relax on the deck out back. The house can sleep eight people and there is ONE bathroom (off a bedroom) with a clawfoot tub and shower. We also have a full kitchen. We are your ideal night-before-a-cruise location!

    What guests are saying:

    “This house is a rare survivor of the 1900 hurricane. Twin to the house next to it, which is not redone. So you can really see the contrast and what a wonderful job they’ve done. Very comfortable master bed, two small single beds. Couches pull out as well. One bathroom. Nice outdoor space in the back. Great kitchen. Just everything you need, clean, well priced & good location with communicative host. Good binder of info about the house, food recommendations, etc. Would stay again.”
