Recent Reviews About This Property

"This is a great house! There were only two downsides. One, there is no door between the master bedroom and bathroom to provide extra privacy. Two, other houses we've stayed in had beach loungers, chairs and sand toys that we could use. This house did not. We ended up buying two chairs to add to the ones we brought."

Summer Fun

"There was plenty of room in this house for our family. Kitchen was well stocked, loved the huge Island . Kids had a blast on the beach in the evening catching crabs. Downfalls we experienced was that the shower downstairs would not drain properly. The sliding glass door needs some work done on it. Very hard to push open and to close. No, lighting in the back Patio. We had to go out and purchase a light to have some sort of light. One of the TV's was stuck on one channel and the dryer was not working so we had no use of the dryer the whole time we were there. Overall had a good time with family but it could have been better. "

Lorene C from Katy Tx, 05/22/2018

Sand 'N Sea's Response

We are glad you enjoyed your stay! Our Property Services team was happy to service the sliding door. We are sorry to hear the dryer did not work during your stay - please don't ever hesitate to call us if there is something we can do to help! We would have been happy to have an appliance technician come out and address the issue.

"Very beautiful beach home. Had lots of fun with the kids, and when the weather turned gloomy there were games and puzzles to play with the kids. Great kitchen for families to be together around the massive island all at once. "

Ernest L, 04/16/2018

"This is the second time we have enjoyed Island Breeze. I think we all love the kitchen with the large island. Always well stocked to make cooking more enjoyable. The master bedroom and bath is very large compared to other houses we have stayed in and enjoy the deck access from all rooms. The location - Sea Isle - is awesome and during spring break nice to be away from all the congestion in Galveston. Plenty of room for the whole family."

STEVEN N, 03/23/2018

"Great house and very comfortable. Had a wonderful vacation at the beach and will be back next year. . The "

Thomas M, 07/30/2017

"Amazing location and the property has absolutely everything you can hope for living and cooking in a house."

Pierre K, 07/05/2017

"The location of this home is perfect if your looking for privacy on the beach. Right in the middle between the two public access. Beds were comfy. The Kitchen is fantastic. The over sized island was a dream. The openness of the main floor with loft above was perfect for our four younger kids to have their space but easy for parents to keep an eye on them. You cant go wrong with Island Breeze as your rental choice!"

Katy from Texas, 08/15/2016

"Best kitchen, great-room we've seen in 20+ years of renting in Sea Isle!"

B from Bellville, TX, 07/30/2016

"The island breeze beach home has a very lovely open concept where it allows you to be in the kitchen and have a view of the dinning and living room. The patios are very spacious with more than enough lounge chairs. A big plus for us was that this beach house provided us with high chairs for our toddlers and ALOT of kitchen essentials such as pot, pans, baking pans, dishes. Two thumbs up!"

Mike from Houston, Tx, 04/19/2016

"This was our 4th year spending Spring Break on Galveston Island and our 2nd year with Sand N Sea Properties. All I can say is WOW! We LOVED this house and do plan to return. As previous comments mention the kitchen was fantastic and the huge island was fun! The first half of the week we had a house full with 10 guests, only 1 child and still had plenty of room. Master bedroom and bath are very large but only a small shower. The loft had very comfy futons and all other mattresses were very nice as well. All TV's were nice with DirecTV satellite, but we didn't use much the view of the ocean/beach is all you need. Because we are there during Spring Break the location is great with very little traffic(people)on that part of the beach. There are a couple of stores and a seafood market close, but going into town only when needed is a plus. They also have added some deck furniture to include some on the master bedroom deck and 4 very nice lounge chairs on the main deck (not pictured). Overall we had a great week and enjoyed the great weather and the beautiful home. See ya soon!"

N from Harker Heights, Tx, 03/21/2016

"This is a wonderful house with a great bunk bedroom downstairs. The Master had a fairly large vanity area, but only a small shower. No bath. All bedrooms have deck access and there is a very short, sandy path to the beach. While this varies from summer to summer, the beach was the best I've ever seen. Spotless for the entire week. Really nothing but good things to say about this house. Very well stocked with kitchen equipment, a great coffee pot, and good TV equipment throughout. WIFI worked well. This house is definitely beachfront and has quite a bit of privacy from surrounding homes."

from Fort Worth, 08/09/2015

"This was the most perfect house we have ever rented. The view was beautiful. I've never stayed at a rental house that had every kitchen appliance you would ever need. The dishes were beautiful and plentiful. I can't say enough good things about this place. We all want to go back as soon as we can."

P from Longview, TX, 06/29/2015

"We are a couple in our 60's and rented Island Breeze as a last minute getaway to share with our adult son and his wife. I chose this property because of the oceanfront views and the tasteful style of the interior furnishings. It did not disappoint! The views are spectacular. It was great that not only did the master bedroom have ocean views but the guestrooms as well. We loved the bleached wood floors and the huge granite kitchen island which was perfect for our family. We are foodies and love to do our own cooking when at the beach. Our first stop when arriving on the island is to head to Wharf Rd and hit up the fresh seafood markets there. We have rented a lot of beach houses over the years, but let me tell you, Island Breeze has the best stocked kitchen we have ever encountered. There wasn't anything I needed that wasn't there, and often two of everything! It was so nice to not have to "make do" with mismatched dishes or mugs the owners thought of everything. It was also very nice having TVs included in all of the bedrooms. The TV in the living area has a large screen for everyone to enjoy watching the Texan's game. The two comfortable sofas meant that there was plenty of seating. Perhaps the only thing that would have made the weekend perfect would have been a few chairs included on the upstairs master bedroom deck, but we mainly spent our time on the large main deck anyway. We really enjoy the atmosphere at Sea Isle. The beach is well maintained and there are not cars driving on the beach. It is further from town than many of the other beach communities but for us that is part of the charm. We like the peaceful and uncrowded aspect of the West beach. We are from the Houston area, so stocking up on groceries before arrival is part of our routine but the nearby Seven Seas Grocery store on San Luis Pass Road is pretty well stocked for anything we forget. We especially appreciate the great service we have received from Sand and Sea when renting on the Island. They make the whole rental process quick and simple with no fears that the property we rent has been misrepresented. I especially like the fact that they followup with us to make sure everything meets our expectations and that they provide us with an after hours emergency number just in case there any unforeseen issues should arise. They will be our go-to rental agency from here on out."

J from Kingwood, Tx, 12/16/2014

"We loved staying at the Island Breeze. This is the first beach house we have ever stayed at that we want to rent again."

from PEARLAND, 09/29/2014

"Fabulous house located right on beach with plenty of room, extremely well furnished with all one needs to enjoy a great stay at the beach! My children and grandchildren hope to return a third time to Island Breeze next year!!!"

P. S from Houston, Texas, 08/16/2014

"This was a Perfect property for our family as the kids could walk right to the beach from the porch and play while in our site and we felt extremely safe."

T, 06/28/2014

"Island Breeze is a great beach house. The kitchen and island counter was awesome and the house is very well equipped. Our large family group had two houses side by side, but Island Breeze was where we all gathered to cook and socialize. Large deck and right on the beach. We had a great Veterans Day weekend."

Jack V from Imperial Beach, California, 11/12/2013

"Out of all the rental homes our family has rented over the past 24 years, this home's kitchen was the best equipped than any other we have rented in the past. The interior of the home is wonderful, pretty, and extremely clean. The wood floors, stainless steel kitchen appliances, and granite kitchen counters really make the living area level of this home shine!!"

S. F from Houston, TX, 09/23/2013

"My family enjoyed this beautiful house and I wish we had rented two weeks in lieu of just one! Island Breeze is perfectly located on the beach with spectacular views of the water since the back of the house is nearing glass on both floors. What an incredible way to wake each morning to the rising sun and watch the sun set in the evening while thanking God for another perfect day!!"

P from Houston, Tx., 08/10/2013

"The living area and kitchen are large and easy to have a buffet, or to have many family members to dinner. Very well designed."

Pat W from Dallas, TX, 11/27/2012

"We arrived to the house, and I must say it looked better in pictures (the outside) As we walked inside the house, we were amazed! We all loved the house so much and had a blast. The kitchen was huge seeing as how we have a family that loves to eat. The view was beautiful. None of us wanted to leave. We loved it so much that we already booked it for next July for a whole week. I would live in this house forever if I could. It was the best trip of my life. I recommend this house!"

B from Wylie, TX, 11/05/2012

"Outside of the property needs some maintenance, the inside is excellent so don't be deceived if you drive by the property, great view and lots of room."

G from Houston,, 05/30/2012

"We had a great time staying here. House was well maintained. Had adequate household needs. I would rent it again."

Amy C from TX, 10/13/2011

"This property has an excellent location with easy access to the beach. This part of the beach was never crowded while we were there and was very clean. The house itself could use some repair and the decking had loose boards and nails sticking up. This was reported at checkout and the agent made a note to have it repaired. All in all, my family of 9 adults and 2 little ones had a great time and slept comfortably. I would rent again."

B from Brenham, TX, 09/21/2011

"Overall I think it was a very good house, the lack of clear driveway caused issues, and had to pay a truck to pull out one of our cars because it got stuck in the sand trying to leave. The house was clean, the location was good, and my family had a great weekend."

Raymond W from Houston, Texas, 08/29/2011

"This house was wonderful! My whole family and I stayed here the first week of August. The views are spectacular. Although it "sleeps" 12, it really should be "sleeps 10 comfortably". Fishing was great, we caught nearly 30 (stingray, hardhead, sheephead and other bay fish) The beach itself was awesome great waves (even for surfing!) and the sand was nice and light, our kids made "The Alamo" and other fortresses. Wonderful house for families!!!"

J. L from FW, Texas, 08/21/2011

"Excellent property. Spacious and cozy. will stay there again!"

R. A. M from Houston, TX, 08/08/2011

"I was a little disappointed when I arrived because the photos appear to have been taken several years earlier. With that said the property had a great location, beachfront with panoramic windows to provide great views. The home was spacious and well furnished. The beds were comfortable and the bedrooms very spacious. The deck was a bit weathered as well as the deck furniture. The outside shower was terrific. We used it a lot to keep the sand out of the house. The two bathrooms were a great and we had no problem with hot water. I would just refrain from running the washer or dishwasher while showering to keep good water pressure. All in all the property could use a little updating but it served our family well and we enjoyed our stay there."
