Why Darren C Skeete chose Galveston

I purchased this property because my kids enjoy building sand castles at the beach. This is a great opportunity for bonding with family.

What makes this condo unique

Over the past few years we have enjoyed the Mardi Gras parades, the railroad museum, beach volleyball, swimming, fishing, biking, horse back riding and more. From nearby vendors, we enjoy the fresh coconuts, mangoes, snow cones, and Ben & Jerry's ice cream.

Nice place for price. Beds perfect. Air and heat good. Furnishings adequate for needs. Locality to foods, stores, beaches good. Quiet setting. Heated pool was great! Covered parking nice. Needs attention by housekeeping: floors, cupboards, dishes. Overall a good place to stay for the price.

We truly enjoyed our stay at this condo. It was comfortable, affordable, and my family had a great time staying here. Very beautiful property and condominium. We will definitely be coming back and staying at this place.

The condo was very nice and clean. The only problem was that I didn't know it had an under the counter fridge, so we had to go buy ice chest and ice. No blender and dishes were not as plentiful as I would have liked. But the condo was great and enjoyed my visit.

Great location, Unit needs work, but has a fatal flaw

  • 1 of 5

I notice that the negative reviews gave specifics & had some common themes: 1 Bed not Comfortable 2 Couch not in good repair 3 Burner malfunctioning on the cooktop, & 4 Sliding door malfunctioning. One or more of these 4 issues have been raised in past reviews dating back years now. During my recent stay with my wife & infant daughter, we encountered all 4 issues, & 1 additional one.

The queen bed in the bedroom of this unit was unbelievably saggy. It was very hard to roll over & if I slept too close to the edge, it felt like I would roll out. I don’t know if the issue is the boxspring, the mattress, or both. Simply unacceptable, & not remotely comfortable.

It was so bad, my wife & I slept the final few nights of our stay on the sofa bed. Although the sofa bed was not comfortable either, my wife & I agreed that it was better than the queen in the bedroom. When I went to deploy the sofa bed, I noticed that the sofa was off-kilter, & appeared to be missing a leg. I emailed the owner to let him know that we had “found the mattress in the master bedroom to be very very soft for our tastes” & that the couch appeared to be missing a leg. I asked him for a block of wood or something to prop up that corner of the sofa. His reply indicated that the sofa bed would hold us, & that he planned to replace it soon. At that point, I could have been more insistent, but I chose not to. In retrospect, I should have been more of a squeaky wheel. I told the owner this in an email I sent last night, & also indicated that due to the beds, I had not received good value for the rent I paid.

On our final day, the next guest let herself into our room. My wife & I were appalled that the front desk had granted her access to our room before we had even checked out. Check-out time is theoretically 11:00 & the next guest was able to let herself in at 10:50.

When I did check out, the lady at the front desk was unsympathetic, stating that they do not control who comes & goes when it comes to rental units that are not a part of the Victorian’s normal rental pool. I asked her if they had at least a minimum check-in time, & she replied that for units outside the normal rental pool, they do not.

Apparently, anybody can ask to be let into any unit that is not in the official rental pool at the Victorian, & they will issue them a key. My wife & I consider what happened to us to be a security violation of the first order, & 100% unacceptable. Deal breaker for us. Cannot recommend.

Owner's Response: We have a proven 4 star track record with most guest having a favorable experience. This incident was most unfortunate. The management at the Victorian recently changed policies & procedures. The new hire working the front desk was unfamiliar with the details of those changes. Check-out time is always 11am and check-in time is always 4pm. That is a 5 hour window between guest stays. This is hotel industry standard. It is also necessary so that the cleaning staff can have an opportunity to prep the unit. There is no reason to allow someone to check-in at 10:50am. It was a clerical error but it is absolutely unacceptable. The victorian management has made assurances that this will never happen again. We will continue to make improvements to this unit so that we can offer the best experience to our guests. We have completed several upgrades to this condo: New fridge, new bed spreads and linens, fresh paint throughout, new flat screen Tv mounted on the wall, new furniture (including sleeper sofa). We work hard to make sure that our guests have everything they need enjoy their stay. We hope to continue to provide an affordable vacation option for our guests.
