vacation rental description

FIVE STAR TROPICAL ISLE has great unobstructed views of Karankawa Beach. Just outside of Jamaica Beach it is a relaxing respite with 1400 Sq. Ft. of living area. Situated in a community of private homes, this is a 3 bedroom townhouse with 3 full bathrooms. The living room is spacious with a flat screen TV/blue ray player. Open to the dining room and kitchen, it's perfect for your family get together. It's a short minute walk to the beach and close enough to walk to Nate's Seafood and Steak House Restaurant. There are decks off both the living and bedroom levels, to spend relaxing evenings after sightseeing or playing in the surf.

Fully equipped, from high speed Internet to a beach umbrella. Tropical Isle has everything you need for a great vacation at the beach. The ground level has a lockable storage shed to house outdoor equipment including charcoal and gas grills, beach chairs, kids' beach toys, and boogie boards. On ground level there is also a porch swing, picnic table, and outdoor shower. Please check our calendar for availability for this very popular rental.

Tropical Isle has a unique floor plan, meaning the living area is on the top floor. While relaxing in the A/C on a large comfortable sofa guests can watch the waves rolling onto the beach. Watch others enjoying flying a kite, walking their dog or others walking hand in hand. The beach is fairly quiet because we are behind 2 rows of private homes and away from the busy hotels.

Seven Seas Market being close by is a fabulous amenity! If you are making the special family dinner and forgot an ingredient, just take a short walk to the market.

The bedrooms are on the first floor to accommodate weary tourist at the end of the day. Cleanliness is a must here. Our beds are made up with colorful tropical sheets and extra pillows while watching TV or a DVD at the end of the day. I love spending time at this Townhome. The beach is real serenity, yet across the street is farmland where I have watched 2 baby steers chasing each other in a game of catch me if you can. Growing up on a farm as I did, it was a sweet treat from the past.

Across the road is a business that rents golf carts and kayaks. Galveston State Park on the bay side has a super

tour of the wetlands by kayak. On the beach side Galveston State Park has an hour tour on the weekend mornings

explaining what little creatures live in the sand. The Galveston Pier Amusement park beacons you for a day of fun. Look on to view upcoming attraction. June is the month of the yearly sand castle building contest on the beach. I cannot leave out Moody Gardens, the Historical Homes Tour in the summer. There is a sea camp for kids through the Coast Guard. There is much to see and do in Galveston! I have lived in a lot of different places but TEXAS IS BEST, and the most friendly place I have lived.

Galveston now has a Level 1 trauma center at the UTMB Hospital on the Island.

traveler reviews for this galveston townhome rental

Great accommodations!

Review submitted: August 9, 2013   Date of arrival: August 1, 2013

We rented Tropical Isle and Tropical Paradise for our annual family trip and were very pleased with both townhomes. There were four families with 10 kids (age 9 and under) between all of us and there was enough room between the two townhomes to sleep comfortably and have some privacy as well. Great location, very close walk to the shore, and we loved the mini-grocery store right next door. The rentals were clean and comfortable. We took the kids to surf camp one morning and had planned on checking out the Pleasure Pier one of the days or heading to the Strand, but everyone was so content lounging on the beach we decided to just stay put. Highly recommend and will rent again in the future!

Recommended for: families with young children, girls getaway

Owners response: Thank you Mary, So glad everyone enjoyed their stay at our Townhouses. It is so peaceful on the beach and yet not far from all the attractions Galveston has to offer.

A special time with my family and grandchildren

Review submitted: August 3, 2013   Date of arrival: July 21, 2013

We all had a wonderfull time. There was room for everyone and we had everything we needed. We loved sitting on the top deck, a beautiful view, especially in the mornings and late evenings. It was also nice to have the floats for the kids,which were greatly used. The wagon made it easier to carry things to the beach and offcourse the showers outside was a plus. Thanks for everything. It truely was a special time for everyone. A happy Grandma

Recommended for: age 55+, families with young children

Owners response: Donna,
I so enjoy seeing the generations of families all together for a memorable vacation. You are so blessed with a big family. I look forward to seeing you all again when ever you can make it back to Galveston.

Review submitted: July 18, 2013   Date of arrival: July 1, 2013

Brian & Nancy,
This was our first time to rent the townhouse. The rental was highly recommended to us by a co-worker. We wanted to be sure it was what we needed so we checked it out prior to our rental date . It was all that we expected and more !! There was plenty of room for everyone and it was located close enough to the beach that if and when we had to go back to the townhouse for something it wasn't that far of a walk.We had so much fun and everything we needed was already there for us .We all had nothing but good things to say about the rental!! Thank you soooo much for helping us make some very happy and long lasting memories !! We loved this rental and can't wait to do it all again next year !! One very happy " NINNY" !!!!!

Recommended for: age 55+, families with young children, families with teenagers, girls getaway, sight seeing, romantic getaway

Owners response: We appreciate so much you taking the time to write a review. I have blocked off the dates we talked about for next summer. We love to see our guests enjoying the beach and Townhouse and making memories for your family. I will keep in touch to make sure your dates are reserved
and look forward to seeing all of your family next year.
