Sol of the Sea is a charming, spacious 5 bedroom 2 bath home in the heart of Isla Del Sol Subdivision with a sparkling swimming pool, sunrise and sunset decks, a primary private balcony, and spectacular canal views!

The exterior of the home features ample deck and balcony area, shaded areas for sun relief, dining, and/or grilling. Ground-level of the home provides an expansive shaded area for gatherings and grilling, an oversized custom picnic table that can accommodate a large or extended family. From the gathering area, you can access the pool, a fishing dock (including a covered cleaning station), and a grassy side-yard. A day of fishing, boating, swimming, and kayaking are all available at this special home. For those with access to a Kayak, the bay is within easy paddling distance as is the beautiful paddle-access wetland property as you paddle out of the neighborhood (where Pelicans and a number of different birds (both local and migratory) can often be seen close-up.

Walk up the central staircase to the first level of this two-story home. As you enter you will experience the open concept living/dining/kitchen with ample seating for everyone. From nearly every window are views of the canal as boats and fishermen slowly make their way out the canal toward Galveston Bay. Open concept very large kitchen with both an island and bar area with stools provide plenty of food and drink preparation areas. This kitchen is up-to-date with all modern appliances, countertops and features Nespresso and coffee maker, (bring your own pods), a blender with built-in pour spout, and everything a cook might need to prepare today's catch or steaks on the charcoal grill.

Extending from the first level of the home is an enormous deck covering three sides of the house that includes (one side) a covered porch perfect for watching the sunrise over the gulf. The deck on the other side includes a covered canal-facing area with a dining table that seats eight and a covered “visiting” nook with chairs. When you want to get some sun you can walk from the covered areas to a large sun-deck that covers the boat-house and that provides great views of our Galveston sunsets and an essentially unrestricted view of the night-time sky. The house includes a telescope that you can take out to the deck to get a closer view of the stars. (please return inside after viewing).

For some 'inside time' the living area features high-speed multi-band WIFI that covers the entire property, large television with cable, a Blue-Ray DVD player, a Roku (where you can access your Netflix account), and an X-Box and Nintendo gaming system. Built-in bookcases contain a variety of board games, cards, dominoes, DVD and Blue-Ray movies (of all ratings), and several X-Box games. The bookcases also contain books, including several focusing on Galveston history, architecture, wildlife, and fishing. There are several easy-to-read paperbacks for a day at the beach. This is truly a family-friendly home where you will make memories for a lifetime!

In addition to the living room/kitchen the first level of the home has a front guest bedroom with a queen-size bed (sleeps 2), ceiling fan and television (with Roku for streaming access) as well as access to a private balcony for some private reading or morning coffee while the sun rises. The second bedroom on the first level has a full-size bed (sleeps 2), ceiling fan, TV (with Roku). Located between these two bedrooms is a large bathroom with a tub/shower and vanity. A laundry room with a full-size washer/dryer and stationery tub is available for guests' use. A special feature of this house is the small hideaway seating area/bedroom next to the kitchen area that opens up to the deck and provides a great view of the canal. This room includes a twin over twin trundle bed (sleeps 2).

The upstairs bedrooms include the primary bedroom with a Sleep Number king bed (sleeps 2) that can be adjusted to just your preference, a ceiling fan, and a TV (with cable). Just off the primary bedroom is a large private balcony with four chairs, footrests, and a light string that provides just the right ambiance for a private dinner, a romantic evening, or sometimes watching the stars. Also located on the upper floor is the fifth bedroom which features two twin beds and a third twin mattress (room sleeps 3).

The house was located in a great spot, on the inlet but a 2 minute golf cart ride to the beach. I\'m not writing a bad review at all just an informative one for the owners and Guests who may want to stay here. The master bedroom was very large but no dressers or closet my wife and I lived out of our suitcases on the floor all week. The bathroom is a Jack and Jill to the other upstairs bedroom which was not an issue at all. The only issue is we had two bath towels and a total of six in the house all week with eleven Guests staying. We made management aware but nothing was done. The bed in the master was very uncomfortable and old. As a matter of fact from what everyone commentment all the beds were either just Ok or not comfortable. No toiletry items were left either, what ever the last people left we got. Not one extra roll of toilet paper or anything. The kitchen was a nice size and my wife was in her happy place cooking minus a few things. Not enough pots and pans and the toaster may have been older than me burining one side every time. The kitchen table is out of the 70\'s and was also uncomfortable as were the cheap bar stools. Moving out to the very large patio area we found to be a lack of chairs. the deck is massive and all that was there were two recliners and a black heavy iron table with eight chairs that were heavy to move out into the sun. There were also two cushioned chairs on one side of the deck when you could have fit 6 easily like we did with the heavy chairs. Along with that we had a house rule that know one was allowed to walk on the sun exsposed part of the deck with out shoes or flipflops. The condition of that part of the deck was dangerous and poorly maintained. We also noticed the deck would sway if six or eight of us were on it. Not really bad but enough for all of us to ask each other if it was swaying. the pool was nice just not heated which would have been a bonus. We were also not impressed with the small charcoal grill. Really, it\'s 2021 come on. All in all it was ok just not great or excellent. Seems like this property is owner absent. This could be an amazing property like all the ones around it. Just needs some TLC.

The house was very spacious and the kitchen was well-stocked with dishes and cooking appliances. Ryson Vacation Rentals was a great company to work with - very responsive and helpful.

Other than a minor infestation issue in pantry/kitchen, my wife was in awe as to the beauty, cleanliness, layout, embellishments, space, location with respect to the scenery of properties surrounding us, comfort of beds and furniture, the available interior and exterior seating everywhere you looked, the spacious pool and parking areas, the list goes on and on. The price was rediculous but one gets what he pays for and we definitely thought it was well worth it after the first night. We hope you\'ll have us again as we plan to vacation there again next year.

The house is spacious and well stocked. A couple of the beds could use an upgrade, but we all slept well. My family enjoyed the pool, fishing from the deck and all the games on hand. We would definitely stay at this location again.

We had a fantastic vacation! The house and pool were such a nice necessity for us for the days the beach was too windy. Being able to fish right off the dock was great fun for all! We enjoyed all the space the house had to offer and would to stay here again! The kitchen was pretty well stocked, but you would need to bring sponges or wash clothes to was dishes or just use the dishwasher. You just bring your own pods. The beds were the most comfortable so an upgrade for the owners would be nice and the only thing to make this an even better place. I recommend this house to everyone!
