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.'

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!

Everything as described!

First I must start out with, Dave and Pam are super to work with. The day before my stay, Dave messaged me and wanted to verify I had all the info for the lock in a text, which came in very handy not having to tattoo the lock code on me somewhere. lol. Pam emailed some ideas of things to bring and places to visit on our trip to Galveston. We arrived and checked in at the Condo Association two hours a head of time, and then went to lunch. (we just wanted to be prepared to just go straight to our Condo after lunch without having to check in) Upon our return to the Condo, we entered the Condo for the first time. The view along with all the other descriptions of the Condo were right on. All pictures on here are true and actual. We visited the pools, however non of them seemed to be heated, but no big deal, it was HOT and I didn't really need a heated pool, I enjoyed the coolness. That night we went out and upon our return to the Condo there was no electricity... BY NO FAULT OF ANYONE BUT A DOWNED TRANSFORMER! Dave texted me updates as he received them from the Condo Association. (I spoke with other guests who rented from other owners, and they were literally left in the dark about what was going on. I really appreciated Dave's updates.) Everything that my husband and I needed, was found in the Condo. This condo is perfect for a couple just wanting to get away for a few days! We spent most of our trip in the Condo or in the Pools on the grounds. I will never forget this trip to Galveston. I would definitely stay here again!

Great location clean, bright and well equiped condo - super nice owners!

  • 5 of 5
Our family of five (three teens - one 6' 6") comfortably stayed for a weekend get away and were accommodated beautifully. The condo was very clean and comfortable (even the sofa bed offered a good night's sleep for our very tall son. The building offered good parking and was quiet with a friendly, family oriented vibe. We enjoyed the beautiful ocean views from the balcony and living room.

My only regret is that we couldn't stay longer!

We will definitely be back!

Perfection!

  • 5 of 5
This was our first time staying in a condo, and we could have not asked for a better experience. The owner was a wonderful person to work with, very helpful and thoughtful. The condo itself was just beautiful. It had everything we could possibly need and was extremely clean and very well organized. The views were breathtaking and the grounds of the property offered numerous places to relax and unwind. Best experience ever!! We will be back!

Relaxing Family Memories

  • 5 of 5
Dave and Pam's listing was thorough and accurate, but the view was better than we expected. We did see dolphins jumping from our balcony as pictured in the photo! The layout was IDEAL for our 3 1/2 year old - nothing for him to hurt himself on, nothing he was likely to break, a long hallway in which to drive his trucks, a step stool to reach the sink, and a perfect place to sleep. We had our privacy, and the adjoining bathroom allowed us to enter and exit our bedroom without waking him, he was far enough from the living area to sleep undisturbed, yet close enough that he felt secure. (We brought a fan for background noise so that we could continue watching TV and cleaning up the kitchen, etc., without interrupting his sleep, and it worked out perfectly.) There were ample outlets, storage, and lighting, the free wi-fi was an added bonus, and the dimmer switch in the bathroom provided a perfect nightlight. The bathroom was such a surprise! The towels alone would have been a luxury, but the jetted tub and magnificent shower were things we would have never expected in this price range. The bed was extremely comfortable and there were plenty of pillows and linens. We also made use of the power strips, DVD player, and i-pod dock. Our son LOVED the little table and chairs outside. We caught crabs right across the street near the pier, took the ferry to Bolivar Peninsula and back, explored Moody Gardens, walked on the beach, ate Blue Bell ice cream, and swam, among other things. Dave was more than responsive to any question we had, and the property was overall a hassle-free, spotless, quiet place to stay in a beautiful location convenient to anything we wanted to do. We would stay again in a hearbeat and would recommend the property to anyone.
