On the quieter west end of Galveston, you’ll find paradise at Aqua Villa in the beloved Sea Isle neighborhood.

Nestled between the bay and the sugar sand beaches of the Gulf of Mexico, the golf cart-friendly community of Sea Isle boasts amazing community amenities such as its own private marina and fishing pier, a sparkling pool, a covered pavilion, tennis courts and a playground. Savor a seafood dinner on the umbrella-covered deck of the Palapa Restaurant overlooking the bay. Thursday through Sunday enjoy live music and delicious fare at the Sandbar. Don’t forget to ask about half-gallons of margaritas to-go! Grab essentials at the marina convenience store and fishing supplies at the bait shop.

Sea Isle, a residential neighborhood with mandated quiet hours between 10 PM and 8AM, is one of the most sought-after family-friendly beach destinations in the area. Just like all Galveston beaches, Sea Isle and Aqua Villa are pet-friendly so bring up to two four-legged friends with you. Please note that outside of the fenced-in yard, dogs must be leashed at all times, and owners are responsible for picking up after dogs; a pet fee applies and must be paid upfront. Sea Isle pool passes must be purchased directly from the Sea Isle HOA Monday – Friday until 5 pm. Pool passes are not sold after hours or weekends. Please call the Sea Isle HOA at 409-737-2438 to reserve your pool pass in advance.

You’ll feel safe and secure with motion-sensor cameras at the front door and driveway. Step inside Aqua Villa to a flowing floor plan where everyone can sprawl out while visiting with each other. Multiple windows keep it light and bright. Every seat is the best seat to watch a favorite movie on the large flat screen TV in the living room with a comfortable leather sectional sofa. Connect your tablet or laptop to the Free Wifi and easily stream music, surf the internet or check your email.

Head out the French doors to the partially-covered wraparound deck where you'll find plenty of seating. Grab a spot at one of the Adirondack chairs and enjoy a cup of coffee while savoring the sunrise. The privacy-fenced backyard gives kids and four-legged friends a place to run and play while you keep an eye on them from the table and chairs on the downstairs patio. Enjoy a family cookout in the evening on the BBQ grill...the hanging lights let you stay outside even after the sun has gone down. An outdoor cabana shower makes it easy to rinse off the sand after a day at the beach.

Aqua Villa’s updated and fully-equipped kitchen featuring granite countertops is stocked with the latest appliances, cookware, dishes and utensils letting you prepare everything from a scrumptious mimosa brunch to sandwiches for your cooler before a day on the water. Find casual seating at the bar counter or gather together at the dining room for great conversation over a family meal.

With a king-size bed, queen-size bed and two extra-long twin-size beds, your party of six will have sweet dreams in Aqua Villa’s three beautifully appointed bedrooms.
