Groceries, dining, gas and shopping are within 3 miles at Jamaica Beach and next door community, Sea Isle, offers a marina and restaurant. Vacation rentals are not permitted in this Galveston neighborhood. Homes in Sunset Cove typically range in sales prices from the $400,000s to over a million dollars.
