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. Our kitchen has all the cookware needed. A pantry and a full size refrigerator to keep enough food for a week.

The bedrooms are on the first floor to accommodate weary tourist at the end of the day. The master bedroom has a queen size pillow top mattress. Windows facing the beach, private bath and a deck that is shared with the bunk room. The bunk room has bunk beds and a small love seat that can open up to accommodate a small child. Bunk room has its' own TV/DVD player.

The 3rd bedroom has a bunk over a double bed and a trundle bed underneath. 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 Townhouse.

Close by 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, and 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

Tropical isle

Review submitted: August 6, 2014   Date of arrival: June 23, 2014

My husband and I, our three daughters, and three grandchildren had a wonderful time at this beautiful town home. Plenty of beds for everyone. It was very clean and well furnished. We will definitely return. It is just steps from the beach and far enough away from the crowds to be very enjoyable and private. Beautiful sunsets from the balconies and all the amenities of home. We can't wait to rent this home again next summer.

Owners response: We thank you Janet for your review. By next summer there will be some renovations done to the interior of the Townhouse and will be much nicer than this year. Reserve early if possible. By the first of May we are usually booked for most of the summer.
Gratefully, Brian and Nancy
