I will come back to this condo again

I live on the Galveston mainland. I come to Galveston every week for business and I just love the island. My grown daughter was visiting from Chicago the week of Valentine's day and I thought that renting this condo with its great gulf view would be a fun way to make her visit special.
The weather turned out to be perfect and we had a blast sitting for hours under the palm tree on the balcony catching up with each others lives. The kitchen was well stocked with equipment and the grocery store is just down the street, so we had everything we needed to feel right at home.
I will return to this condo again because the owner offered me superlative customer service (she made me feel like a old friend), the elevator made it easy for me to get down to the parking lot, and my dog appreciated that a grassy area was close by. It's the little things that can make a vacation either special, or a nightmare. My obstacles were that I have a bad hip and and small dog, and I was happy that walking my dog was not too difficult to accomplish.
I have rented Galveston Island hotel rooms many times over the years. Now that I am familiar with Galveston Tropical Condos I will probably never stay anywhere else. Why pay the same price (or more) for the same view at a hotel when I can rent an entire condo with an equipped kitchen?
Thank you to the owner for making our stay very comfortable, we'll be back. :-)

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed the condo and your time in Galveston. We agree with you, staying at a condo is far superior than a hotel room. In fact, that's what we do when we travel - stay at condos where you have a chance to experience a loving home instead of a hotel room. We look forward to your next visit either when you travel to Galveston for work or whern your daughter gets to join you. Remember the returning guest discount.
