Beautiful house with great design for multi family gathering. Two living areas are a plus.

This is a great place for a family vacation

Beautiful views, great pool for entire family. Boat launch is close to home and bay is two hundred yards from home. Loved the house, only drawbacks are no closet in one bedroom and no ice maker. It would have been nice to be able to use elevator for loading and unloading food and luggage. We had a great vacation because it was quiet and relaxing. Thanks

Very spacious and accommodating for our 9 people.

It had all of the amenities and space we needed as a group. We have rented this house several times before.

This is my 2nd stay at this property, sand and sea does a great job with the up keep of this property. Its a great place to enjoy with the family and the neighbors are kind as well.
- Donovan B , Posted: 11/06/2017
This is a very nice property. The house is large enough to accommodate a large family (or two families) comfortably. I love the extra large master suite. There are 2 large outdoor decks and a large area with picnic tables under the house to add to your comfort. We enjoyed fishing from the boathouse fishing deck. This will always be one of my favorite houses.

Fabulous property! We will be going back again and again!

Spacious layout for a large group. Grandkids loved the pool so much we never made it to the beach in a 7 day stay.
- Arthur K , Posted: 07/30/2017
We were there with different family groups and were very comfortable. It is a large home with plenty of room for adults and children.
- Janie C , Posted: 07/22/2017
My family has stayed here on several visits and it's the perfect combination for us. Close to the beach when wanted but swimming in the pool and fishing was the fav. The master with its seating area are perfect.

Our group of ladies go on a beach trip every year, and enjoyed this property! We will definitely return and had a great time!
- Kathleen C from Brenham, TX, Posted: 09/26/2016
Wonderful, large, clean rental home with a pool. Plenty of room for our extended family that made everyone comfortable. Close to the beach. We had a great time. It was a perfect house rental for our family.

This was the perfect house for a family vacation with children. My grandchildren are too young to do alot of the activties in Galveston so the pool was perfect. I enjoyed the pool myself. When you are as old as am I really don't like wearing a bathing suite in public.LOL The house was really nice. Us older people stayed on one side of the house and my daughters and their children stayed on the other. It was PERFECT.. I will definately rent this home again.
- Jannette P from Plantersville, Tx, Posted: 08/18/2015
This was a great weekend getaway for 10 of my women friends and myself. There was ample space to sleep as well as bathroom space for all. Excellent arrangement for us to spread out. The pool is the highlight of this property...excellent for hanging out and visiting with friends. The seating around the pool made it comfortable for everyone. I would stay here again in a heartbeat!

Loved isla del sol, would definitely rent it again. Sand n sea properties was awesome and we would definitely recommend them to friends and family!

We enjoyed our stay in this home. Our group included our two adult children and their families. My husband brought his boat and was pleased with the boat slip and quick access to the bay. The pool was a great hit with everyone. There was a wide ledge all the way around the pool. The young children could easily stand on the ledge to play. The two living areas provided for the adults to watch a movie while our children watched cartoons. Great family memories.

A family group of eight ranging from 27 to 78 we really enjoyed this house the pool was great the house ideal and the fish were biting well.after a long journey from the uk we all really enjoyed it and had a marvellous time.
- Anonymous B from UK, Posted: 04/12/2015
this place, isla del sol, in Galveston tx. is absolutely magnificent.the people were welcoming and nice,the house was clean inside and out, all appliances were working good, plus the fish were biting in the canal behind the house. if you need to wind down and exhale this is the place.
- Billy W from Houston, Texas, Posted: 10/21/2014
Good house for families with small children - gates on the stairs. Probably good for two or large families, but one side of the house is quite a bit nicer than the other!
- Anonymous from Austin, Posted: 12/02/2013
isla del sol is one beautiful place
- Anonymous w from houston tx., Posted: 10/21/2013
We enjoyed staying at this property. Was very nice having your own private pool. There was 9 of us total, including a 6 yr old and two 2 yr olds. The house was plenty spacious. Would stay here again
- Anonymous B from Fort Worth, TX, Posted: 08/29/2013
this a great multi family vacation home, with 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms it was plenty big, the 2nd living room worked out well for all the kids and the swimming pool made the trip!
- Anonymous H from Sugarland tx, Posted: 08/10/2013
This property is the best of both worlds! Our 11 year old daughter selected this vacation rental because of the swimming pool she and her 3 girlfriends enjoyed it, while my husband got to fish. We all had a relaxing time during our 2 night stay, wish we could have stayed one more night!
- Jennifer O from Houston, Tx, Posted: 10/01/2012
This is a great rental for families! Grandbabies enjoyed fishing off the dock and practically lived in the pool. Great place to relax and leave your worries behind. Nice and clean!
- Anonymous B from Snook, Texas, Posted: 07/14/2012
We have rented this home for three years for a family vacation. It is perfect. Fishing out the back, close to the beach, pool is awesome, and plenty of room upstairs and downstairs. GREAT PLACE!!!!
- Anonymous B from College Station, TX, Posted: 06/11/2012
This was a great house for multiple families. Nicely decorated and very comfortable. It had everything we needed for a great Memorial Day Weekend. The swimming pool was wonderful! We've already booked again for next year.
- Anonymous T from Sugar Land, TX, Posted: 05/29/2012
This house was really perfect for our needs. A canal house is great. We're not fighting sand or wind very much. Fishing off the dock was fun. The pool is nice. We had six couples and we didn't feel overly crowded. The rolloways (which we needed for two couples) weren't comfortable, so we put the rollaway mattresses on the floor and it was fine.
- Joe from TX, Posted: 04/02/2012
this house was perfect for our family. the youngest person was 16. we needed no bunk beds. we loved the deck and the pier. we even caught two crabs, took pictures and let them go. beautiful sunsets.
- Anonymous b from houston, texas, Posted: 11/28/2011
We truly enjoyed our stay. The house and view was beautiful. The home was clean and comforting. Fishing and crabbing in area was good. Nieghbor hood was really nice. Our ONLY complaint was the mattress was uncomfortable in master bedroom. Other than that, our week stay was awesome.

Our family of 8 adults and 5 children (5 and under) stayed at this house. It was great for us especially with 4 roll-away beds! We enjoyed the pool and fishing from the dock.
- Anonymous T from Greenville, TX, Posted: 09/08/2011
This is a great house for a large family vacation. There is plenty of room to spread out so you aren't in each other's hair. The pool provides a nice touch where kids can play and adults can cool off. We prefer the canal location as it allows everyone a convenient place to fish and crab. Our grandkids have many fond memories of the times we have spent together on the bay.
- Jerry and Joyce P from Friendswood, TX., Posted: 07/30/2011
Perfect for extended family vacations with small children. Pool large enough for children to swim and fishing from dock is fun. Will be be back next year.
- Anonymous N from College Station, TX, Posted: 07/23/2011
Our family loves the space and the pool.
- S. E from Crosby, Texas, Posted: 06/28/2011
Great location for a family vacation. Canal in back for fishing, pool for swimming, and just a mile to the beach. We had a wonderful time and plan every summer vacation here.
