E-mail from guest:

Hi, David

Just returned last night from Galveston and had to let you know what a lovely condo you have. . . there was not a thing we needed that was not there, the decor was so very attractive, location just right - that end of the Island is very good place to be.

We did the ferry to Port Bolivar, Paddle wheeler trip, museum downtown as well as oil rig museum, trip to Penguin Island, old mansions (Moody was favorite), drove further west and ate at Richard's restaurant in Sea Isle on the marina - TWICE. Used the pocket beaches to good advantage. . . kept going to a different spot each day! Weather was tremendous. . . foggy early but burned off by 9 a.m. Sat on seawall and watched the surfers, went out on fishing pier. . . enjoyed eating at The Spot!

Hope to be back, Don and Donna Williams

About Dave Ruch

Pam & I live in Denver, but enjoy visiting Galveston with our Grandkids. They love to splash in the shallow beach water. Eliana wants to drive next time with her new learner's permit :-)

Dave Ruch purchased this condo in 2005

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dave,



Hi, thank you! Your place was wonderful. Very relaxing, clean, and very quiet. My family loved it. The property was amazing.The pools were refreshing and very spacious. Although they had construction going on we never had issues and most of all never heard a sound. Very pleasant. We have enjoyed the beaches very much. Shopping was great; the seawall was wonderful; and the weather was warm but awesome. Things we did with the children ages 11,16,16,16; we visited Schlitterban Waterpark, went to the GREATEST Cafe' " Rainforest Cafe' " Absolutely amazing. We took a day and rode a few minutes down the road and visited The NASA Space Center in Houston, which the whole family enjoyed very much. Then off to the Kemah BoardWalk all with in a couple of miles from each other. I can say this, we will certainly be back. This was one of the most wonderful getaways we have had. So thank you so much for opening your vacation home to my family and I.



Thank you,

Shirley S & Family

Vacation

  • 4 of 5

The condo was very nice and made us feel at home. It was very convenient that everything was in walking distance. It had a wonderful view of the beach, and it was very peaceful. It was a wonderful vacation.

Not to be missed sunrises!!

  • 4 of 5

Very clean condo with very comfortable beds. I am 62 and slept in the lower bunk -- very comfortable, so yes, adults can sleep in these bunks. The balcony is huge and has a table and several chairs as well as a children's picnic table. Don't miss the sunrises over the Gulf from the balcony!! The living room is very small (not unexpected in a condo) and there really is no place for more than four people to sit and play cards or games although there are four bar stools. The swimming pool looked very nice but too cold to swim in Feb! We really liked how quiet it was on the 3rd floor, if we had neighbors, I never heard them. I LOVE the lock system with a code to get in the condo -- this is the best system I have seen and very convienient if you have more than one couple staying here. Dave was great to work with and always responded promptly. A great trip -- you always leave Galveston wishing you could stay longer.

Owner's Response: Libby, thanks for staying with us. Yes, we enjoy sunrise over the water too, the reflections and palm trees frame tropical memories for us mountain folks. The property has 3 pools and a hot tub. One of the pools is heated all year long. Thanks for sharing your experience! Dave

Guys trip to Galveston for Superbowl weekend

  • 5 of 5

The listing was exactly as what was provided. The unit was exceptionally clean, well located and Dave provided timely advise for locating and getting into unit upon late arrival. This unit will work fine for 3 or for individuals.We spent the majority of our time downtown eating seafood and patronizing local establishments. I would highly recommend.

Owner's Response: I'm glad you enjoyed super-bowl weekend. I'm sorry you were not able to watch the Broncos again, maybe next year :-) Thanks for the feedback, and kind words. Dave

Would Strongly Recommend

  • 5 of 5

Three folks from different parts of the country wanted to spend Thanksgiving together. This was a wonderful place to do that...playing cards as we enjoyed your great view of the beach...Roseate Spoonbill on the pond just across the parking lot for my bird-watching hubby to enjoy...all of the great seafood we could eat. Life doesn't get any better than that! And when you get tired of shrimp, (as if that could happen) try Queens for the best Texas barbeque.

Dave was extremely helpful and sent us detailed directions, along with several helpful suggestions about the area.
