Galveston Condo Rental Photos and Description

1BR/1BA Sleeps 6, 2 adult size bunks & sleeper sofa

Enjoy sunset from your private quiet balcony overlooking the gulf and beautiful pool grounds. Then, make memories with your family on beautiful Galveston Island. 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!'

E-mail from guest, (continue): 'We have stayed in condos on Hilton Head Island, Lake Tahoe - yours was the nicest. . . will miss your television. . . guess we will take a trip to our local television sales store! Thanks again for everything. By the way, the rental office was great, too. We arrived on Monday afternoon and went there in case they could rent to us one day early. . . gave us an hour for the housekeepers to finish and we were in. And, the pool is lovely! Hope to be back. . . Don and Donna Williams in Indiana.'

For our May 2015 guests: The front of the property near the checkin desk is getting a face lift (extensive external maintenance) this month before summer. Elevator #1 (of three elevators) is closed, so I suggest using elevator #2 (about the same distance) for access from the garage. Our SeasideVIEW condo is far enough away from the maintenance work that you probably won't hear much noise during the day, and work is not allowed at night or weekends. You can expect heavy equipment and building materials around the work area at the front of the property. We will all enjoy the new look!

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 2009

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Dave, We had a great stay! The accommodations were great. The kitchen was well equipped. The only addition we could think of was maybe a sponge. We brought some DVD's and watched them on the flat-screen and we loved the surround sound. We especially enjoyed the movies because the hurricane was coming and we couldn't be on the beach as much as we wanted. It was extremely clean (no bugs) and we enjoyed our stay. Thanks, Mike

By the way, the miniature golf course nearby was the best we've ever played on!

Relaxing long weekend

  • 5 of 5

Great location and the condo was exactly as advertised. It was great to have breakfast and lunch each day at the table in the pictures of the condo and eating out in the evening. The courtyard below was well landscaped and we had fun dropping small carrots to a family of rabbits that evidently call it home. Payment, instructions and everything was well organized. And, we liked the convenience of the number-lock door, and not having a key to keep up with as we went in and out.

thanks Dave and Pam!

Owner's Response: Rabbits, who knew? I've had a few guests tell me how much fun their kids have had watching the bunnies. I know my grandkids will love them. We will have to remember carrots for the rabbits, and seagull food for the beach (my favorite). Thanks for the feedback. -Dave

Friendly getaway. Quiet and Lively island.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I came for our honeymoon. We got married Saturday in in Iowa and our and drive to this condo was complete by Monday. Worth every hour in the car. It was stormy but even Weill avoiding the water for a day of our stay we went board. We hit up Moody Gardens and a dolphin tour. We also enjoyed the historic down town district that was close by with restraunts and shops. We loved Mod Coffee. I insisted we go every morning. The sea wall was nice to walk along when when it was chilly and the hot tub was warn enough to let us swim on any night. We totally recommend the Fishermans Gultch. It was the greatest meal ever. Right next to the dolphin tour. We also enjoyed a meal in since the kitchen had everything. The tub was high tec and fun to wash off after a long day on the beach. We did go to the beach twice. The directions we got eye support easy and we wished we had booked for longer. The locals are so nice. Only complaint is the whole town makes you use an app to pay for parking. Don't let that detour you though. This condo makes a nice stay in cation and the island makes q great vacation.

Nice Stay

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I just returned from staying here for three nights. The weather was horrible so we spent a lot of time at the condo. We didn't use the pools or hot tub, but there was one heated pool. The place was cozy and had everything we needed, it was really nice to be able to cook. It was just the two of us, would of been ok if we had my son with us but more than that it would of felt a bit tight but again the weather was horrible so we were there a lot. Overall a great place for the price. If you plan to utilize the gym, it has one old half broken workout piece. There was a ping pong table and board games though.

Great Stay

  • 4 of 5

The room was very clean and well kept. We had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. The only issue we had was the elevator to the property did not work and we got stuck for a few minutes.

Rain or Shine

  • 5 of 5

We had wet weather for most of our stay, but Galveston still offers a lot to see and do even if you are carrying an umbrella. The condo is comfortable and efficient, the heated pool helped kids enjoy an otherwise frigid day. It was a nice stay and the facilities are as described. The highlight, for me, was Dave the owner of this unit. He is so attentive to text messages and really has the rental and upkeep of the unit down to a science. It is kind of fun to see how he has thought of everything . . . hope, that doesn't jinx him!

Owner's Response: You can "jinx" me anytime with a review like that! I think everything probably wasn't perfect, but you are so gracious. Now if I could just figure out how to control the weather for your next stay :-) dave

Great location!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is in a great location away from downtown. The pools are protected from the wind. Loved the heated swimming pool and hot tab. Best equipped kitchen and extras that we have had in many VRBO condos. Very pleased with the top notch cookware that was provided.

Dave and Pam also kept in close contact with us in case we needed anything.

Loved the space Center in Houston and moody gardens in galveston.

Would recommend this place for families or just adults.

Owner's Response: Hi Pam and Dan, Sounds like you enjoyed the stay. I never thought about the pools being protected from the wind, but you are right, good observation. I can't take credit for the kitchen cookware, but will be sure to pass the complement on to Pam. See ya, Dave
