Overview

Galveston Condo Rental Photos and Description

Studio, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 2

Absolute stunning one of a kind condo unit right on the beach facing the gulf. This unit has marble walls, floor and newly remodeled marble bath complete with walk in shower with sitting bench and floor to ceiling glass doors. A wall of mirrors lets you view the gulf from your bed or watch TV on a 32'' flat screen TV with built in DVD player. At night, relax in king size bed with luxurious bedding while you either look at the gulf or enjoy the quiet reflection of a glowing electic fireplace.

There are complete kitchen facilities or enjoy grilling on the patio downstairs with 2 gas grills for your convenience. A quick walk across the dune crossover and you are on the beach. Nothing to block your view and no vehicles allowed on the beach to disturb you. A perfect vacation spot you won't want to leave and can't wait to come back to.

Why the Owner Chose Islander East: After growing up in Galveston County and then living and working in Houston, I found I kept being drawn back to the Island. Being a busy Banker, I wanted a quiet place to retreat to on weekends that wasn't more than an hours drive. Finding the Islander East Condos was the 'special place' I'd been looking for. It's been 10 years and I have enjoyed every minute of it and hope for many more.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo: I never get tired of walking on the beach or sitting on my balcony looking at the water and relaxing while visiting with neighbors. The view of the water at night with the moonlight reflecting on it and seeing the lights of ships lined up in the distance to enter the Ship Channel is truly the best of the best

RAIN---everyday and still loved it! :)

  • 5 of 5

In spite of rain all three days, it's still a bit of heaven. Sometimes a getaway to do nothing is needed! Everyone's different. Loved the VIEW- bed,lighting, portable closet. Incl.Coffee, condiments,& great bar glasses! Very cool. I cant complain especially if I read the info. ahead about few towels.Next time I'll bring extra. Music CD wasn't there,fortunately had laptop to use.NEVER TV. , a waste of time when there's' a room with a view"---sweet .Thanks,Paul we will be back :)

Comfortable and Relaxing

Location, Location, Location !!!

We had a wonderful time listening to the surf, watching the full moon over Galveston Bay and observing the ship traffic enter the Harbor. It was a very enjoyable stay for us.

Great view

  • 4 of 5

The condo was amazing, the bed was so comfortable, the view was great. Very clean and nicely decorated. The only problem we had was on our second night the front desk clerk knocked on the door to ask if we had just taken a shower I said yes he said that it was leaking into the unit below. He asked didn't you hear me knocking an hour ago I responded by saying if I heard someone knocking I would have answered the door. He was rude. We were then asked not to take any more showers the remainder of our stay! I had noticed the drain was slow but I had no idea it was leaking into the unit below. Would have been nice to take a shower before leaving.

Romantic weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

This condo was so cozy and well decorated. We loved everything about it. Spectacular views, bed was super comfy, and the shower was amazing. We could even see the beach from our bed! I attached a photo we took of the view from bed. :) At night if you stand on the balcony you can see the Pleasure Peir all lit up. We even took a swim in the heated pool. Very relaxing. If we ever visit Galveston again we will definitely be staying here. Thank you for an amazing weekend in your beautiful condo.

Disappointing Amenities

  • 1 of 5

Space is super small with too much furniture and mislead on the amenities - no internet service and was told by owner I could access "free" internet if I chose to sit in the lobby!! We ended up leaving a day early as it is not a comfortable place; the bed takes up the majority of space and not enough room to even sit in the chairs and watch TV: some channels had no volume. Full kitchen lacked oven and dishwasher.

Owner's Response: I strive very hard to provide a clean and nicely appointed place for my guests to relax and enjoy their vacation. No where in my ad does it say that internet service is provided. However, I did let the guest know that it was available for free in the lobby. I am working with Comcast now to add internet service to my condo but they are not the fastest in making appointment times for installations. I am surprised at the comment about the super smallness of the unit. It is advertised as an efficiency unit and there are 24 pictures provided on the ad so the amenities should be of no surprise. There is a microwave provided and because of the short duration stay and the fact that there is a maid service that cleans and washes any dishes after each stay there is no need to have a dishwasher and no space to have one anyway. The condominium provides basic cable service so any channels not included in the basic package have no sound. There is not an error nor a mistake on my part. Considering all my other favorable reviews I can only say that I guess you can't please everyone and I am sorry for that.

Very misleading....Beware!!!

  • 1 of 5

The only good thing was the view. Way too much furniture....could hardly walk around. Shower and bath sink kept stopping up. The shower stall almost overflowed....nasty water around my ankles. Maintenance tried but didn't help. Fireplace does not work. AC isn't working right......he has 2 fans to help. The room had not been cleaned and could not check in until after 4:00. I emailed the owner and did not get a reply. I assume he does not care. Beware!!!!!

Owner's Response: In response to each comment I submit the following: 1. I emailed my maid and the office at the condo on 10/21/14 at 8:57 pm exactly 6 minutes after emailing the renter the directions to the condo etc. Howie denies ever having said anything about not receiving an email until the Sunday arrival date. I sent a copy of my email to the renter as proof of the timing of delivery. The maid claims her computer was having email issues at the time and that is why she didn't receive my email and thus the room was not ready on their arrival. Unfortunate but we regrettably don't live in a perfect world. 2..the stoppage in the shower has occurred before and I have had maintenance address the problem as well as hire an outs ode plumber who worked on fixing it as well. I thought the problem had been resolved as no further complaints had been received until now. I have contacted another plumber and they are coming out this Monday to resolve the problem once and for all and I plan on being on site to make sure that it is and that it is tested. 3. Howie and I both cleaned the room as fast as we could and I found the bottom sheet I our owners closet with our supply of linens but no top sheet. Howie got me one from the rental pool supply and that is the difference in the quality in the two sheets. Sorry but it was a quick fix to a time sensitive problem. 4.The fireplace does work. There is a toggle switch under the front top ledge that Turns the fire place on. On the left side the toggle switch turns on the heat. The round knob at the bottom controls the height of the flame once the fire place is turned on. I Guess this was due to operator error. I haven't had anyone else say they had a problem turning the fireplace on. 5.i checked the a/c unit and found the maid had not cleaned the filters in a while so I cleaned them myself before you checked in. But since your comments, I had maintenance remove the unit and clean it entirely. This is good of maintenance to do annually due to the salt air. 6.I liked the idea about a place to open luggage so I purchased a fold out rack like in hotel rooms for this purpose. Problem solved. As I said in my reply email, I do rely on guests comments to keep my property in perfect order for my guests stays and want them to have the perfect vacation. I must be doing something right most of the time since this property has 56 reviews of 5 stars and my other 2 properties have a 4star rating.
