Beautiful Condo on the Beach

  • 5 of 5
I can't say enough about how much we enjoyed this condo which is located right on the beach!! It was very spacious, and the two balconies with spectacular ocean views were wonderful. We spent lots of time on them enjoying the view! The condo was very, very clean with a comfortable king bed in the master bedroom and a queen bed in the 2nd bedroom. The pictures are very accurate, and if you like the pictures, you will love the condo! The kitchen has a microwave, dishwasher, oven with a stove top, full size refriderator and all the pots, pans and dishes, etc.. Islander East Resort also has picnic tables and gas grills so you can cook outside if you like. The pool area was very quite and not too crowded. Overall, I would totally recommend this condo. Our family can't wait to go back!

Super clean, super comfortable, super convenient upgraded beach condo!

  • 5 of 5
Our family of three arrived at the professionally manicured grounds of Islander East to be greeted by the super friendly and helpful front desk staff. We were quickly given a tour and check-in was a breeze. Once in our condo (#708), we discovered a completely upgraded unit with all the amenities of a high-end hotel. The appliances were brand new, the furniture and decor was incredible, and the view of our personal beach was amazing.

This place is definitely for beach-goers since it's right on the tan-sandy beach of Galveston away from all the tourists and crowds. It was perfect for our family, because it was private yet close enough of a short drive to the main Seawall attractions.

We highly recommend unit 708 because it's THE cleanest and most upgraded condo we've ever stayed at on our travels...and we love to travel.

I can't imagine what could have made our stay in this unit any better.

Family of four including two teenagers, 16 and 17, accompanied by my mother-in-law. A perfect unit for our last of the summer hurrah before school; but more on that in a moment.

This was our first use of VRBO and of any privately owned rental unit. Everything from the VRBO unit location services and Owner's on-site management staff for rental confirmation and check-in was flawless. Everyone I spoke with was extremely patient and understanding concerning my initial hesitation and limited experience outside of a hotel reservation system. I will now, without hesitation, recommend the VRBO service, Islander East, and Unit 708 to anyone interested.

Now; to the unit. From the time we entered the gates at Islander East; to check-in at the service desk; to opening the door to Unit 708; to seeing the view through the windowed wall to the gulf; every step escalated our happiness and exceeded our expectations. I can not stress this enough, if the dates are available, this is the unit you want to rent. What a fantastic remodel! From the beach perfect pleasing paint and tile work to the new appliances and furnishings it really is a perfect second home on the gulf. It was more than spacious enough for my mother-in-law who utilizes a walker to get around without trouble and easily accomodated our dinner party with two additional friends staying in another smaller unit. This unit at Islander East is situated on what I refer to as the "calmer - east side" of the Galveston beach where relaxation, water, and quiet is the prime goal - not that you are far from the action; I'm just saying that closer units are available to the seawall boulevard if your goal is to be "in the thick of things" on seawall boulevard. This unit has everything - just fill the fridge and bring your beach towels!

The pictures in the advertisement accurately reflect the unit in it's current state. New, new, new! I will make my future Galveston vacation plans based upon the availability of this unit.

Thank you for letting my family stay; and thank you for providing such a wonderful getaway.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the nice review. We take great pride in making sure that our condo is kept clean, comfortable and fun for our guests. As you noted, the beach front view and quiet East Beach location are what makes this condo unique. Glad you liked our new "beachy" decor. The recent remodel allowed us to update the unit with all new appliances, furniture, fixtures, bedding, granite and tile work. We look forward to seeing you back at Islander East and specifically Unit 708 on your next vacation to Galveston.

Far Exceeded Any Beach Condo I've Been To

Far Exceeded Any Beach Condo I've Been To
  • 5 of 5
This condo was great. It was hard to believe the furniture and amenities inside were so nice for a beach condo. Loved the beds and bedding (I'm super picky) and furniture seemed brand new. I've stayed at several condos down here and this one is recommended as other furniture hasn't been updated in 15 years it seems in other units. I've also found other units to be missing silverware, cups and basics. This one was loaded. Folks that were staying there were very friendly and great atmosphere by pool and BBQ area. Enjoyed getting groceries with full size fridge and walking back from beach to grab lunch. I'm planning my next trip already for this Unit?

Tour of property after remodel

  • 5 of 5
I was able to tour this property the final week of the remodel process. The condo is decorated beautifully! Distressed furniture, 2 large beds, beautiful view from both balconies, large wall mount tv's, and extremely clean. The condo is located beachside. Only a few minutes away from the wonderful restaurants and entertainment that Galveston has to offer. Gated parking. The owners did a wonderful job remodeling this unit.

Owner's Response: Thanks for taking the time to tour the condo after the remodel. We literally gutted Unit 708 and started over with all new wiring, plumbing, ceiling, flooring, lighting, walls, cabinets, A/C, appliances, furniture, fixtures, bedding, etc. The unit is now brand new and includes many extra amenities that previous guests had recommended in order to make the condo more user friendly.

We are very excited about sharing our updated condo with the VRBO community.

Hope to see you back at Islander East soon.

Galveston Island offers everything in a resort destination – entertainment, shopping and 32 miles of Gulf Coast beaches. Galveston’s festivals, special events and attractions are enjoyable for Islanders and tourists alike. Galveston also has some of the best restaurants featuring the freshest seafood on the Gulf Coast. The historic Strand District in downtown Galveston offers fine dining and endless shopping - and is only a few minutes away for the condo.

Galveston's newest attraction is The Pleasure Pier which opened in May, 2012. It boasts a 1,100-foot entertainment complex built on a pier extending over the waters of the Gulf. The $60 million pleasure pier has 16 fabulous rides including two roller coasters, a carousel and a Ferris wheel. The Pleasure Pier also offers a food court, restaurant, carnival games and other attractions for the entire family.

One of the most popular attractions in Galveston is Moody Gardens. Water your imagination and travel the oceans of the world at the Aquarium Pyramid. Or step into the Rainforest Pyramid with thousands of tropical plants, exotic fish and birds. Explore the mysteries of science at the Discovery Pyramid, and take a rocking and rolling ride through the universe at the Ridefilm Theater. Get in the middle of the action at the 4D Special FX Theater. See spectacular images leap from the screen of the six-story IMAX 3D Theater.

With its huge array of awesome aquatic adventures, Schlitterbahn Galveston offers over 32 amazing rides and attractions, including a large wave pool, uphill water coasters, thrilling speed slides, kid's water playgrounds, whitewater rapids, relaxing hot tubs, family raft rides, the Boogie Bahn surf ride and the exclusive Transportainment river system. Relax in steaming warm waters and enjoy summer fun all year long at Texas’ first and only heated, indoor waterpark. (Both the air and water are always in the 80s!) The Wasserfest Heated Indoor Season, October through mid-April, features more than a dozen heated attractions in a tropical, heated indoor oasis.

Galveston Island Ferry, located on Hwy 87 (Ferry Road), continues to be one of Galveston's most popular attractions. Riders can park and ride the ferry or drive their vehicle aboard the ferry. Ferries run approximately every fifteen to twenty minutes and are free. The ferry is only 5 minutes from the condo.

Less than an hour away is numerous other attractions including the Houston Space Center, the Kemah Boardwalk and the Gulf Greyhound Park that offers live dog racing year around.

Carnival, Royal Caribbean, Celebrity, Disney and Princess Cruise Lines have all found a home at the Port of Galveston in recent years. Spend a few nights on the beach in Galveston prior to or after your cruise.
