ABSOLUTE CLASSIC CONDO UNIT RIGHT ON THE BEACH

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

Awesome Patio Ocean View

  • 4 of 5
We totally LOVED your condo even though it was a little smaller than what we expected but we still loved it and will go back again.

I saw only two child by the pool when we checked in and two on the balcony when we were leaving so that was awesome because when I am on a weekend get away I really just want some Adult time.

My husband was on the balcony more than me. It was so quiet and peaceful the entire weekend.

Love how you went the extra step with sending us a list of things to do in Galveston and that you allowed us to sleep in a few extra hours at NO additional cost on Sunday.

You might think about putting a small trash can in the bathroom.

Wonderful Romantic Stay! You won't be disappointed!

Wonderful Romantic Stay! You won't be disappointed!

My husband and I had a lovely time! Thanks so much for sharing your beautiful condo with us! We came in late Thursday on a blustery evening and had no truble getting in the gate and a warm welcome from the from desk staff person who promptly got us a luggage cart and a car tag and shorter gate access code. The condo was just like the pictures! Gorgeous view and romantic decor. Since its a little more on the masculine side, it was pleasing to my husband much more so than a rose-covered B & B! There are these ingenious mirrored cabinets on either side of the bed that have a place to hang your hanging clothes and cubbies on the back side for shoes, etc and a full length mirror on the front! Perfect find for this space! I DO NOT travel light, so trust me there is enough space for all your things! Also, I'm a girly girl and was worried about where I was going to do my hair and makeup but there are plugs at either end of the full wall of mirrors where I plugged in my blow dryer and curling iron and sat in one of the chairs turned towards the mirror and put my make up on! It worked out perfect while my husband was showering and dressing in the bath! I was worried about the no bath only shower since I am a bubble bath girl but the shower had a bench and the water pressure was great with the rain shower head so there was no problem. We slept in ( the bed is amazingly comfy! ) and took a brisk morning walk on the beach, which was totally secluded, hardly saw a soul! We had breakfast at our old fav the Apache downtown ( we used to live in Galveston and love the folks and the authentic Mexican food as we are W Texas transplants ) We had dinner at Rudy and Paco's and laughed out loud at the " Hall and Oates " duo at Club 21 ( boy has it changed! ) but we enjoyed it immensely! We met friends for a snacka nd dessert at The Spot and had another wonderful dinner at Di Bellas and drinks at The Hotel Galvez where we were married in 2005. We normally stay at The Galvez or The Tremont but trust me you can stay for 3 nights at this lovely condo for the price of one night at these hotels and we loved the privacy and view much more than a hotel room and the differnce in price we indulged with some extravagant dinners! Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful place and we will definitely be back soon! The Robinson's

Cozy and relaxing

  • 5 of 5
This was our second visit. We stayed a few days in August and loved it so much we came back for my birthday. The view from the deck is outstanding...sunrise over the ocean in the morning and moonrise at night. The walkway to the beach is over the dunes which are interesting in themselves (butterflies, little birds, fireflies in the summer). The room is clean and the bed is super comfortable. The marble surfaces and mirror wall create a sophisticated decor with a cozy electric fireplace for ambience. We highly recommend this place for a relaxing get-away.

Perfect solo trip

  • 4 of 5
I grew up around Galveston but have lived away from the Gulf for quite some time. Whenever I get the opportunity, I head for the beach. I was traveling alone this time, so safety was a concern of mine. This little condo was just right.

It is an established property: older and smaller than many of the condo buildings in Galveston. This property is fenced and gated, with on-site staff. It is comfortable and not pretentious. This unit was exactly like it shows in the photos. Yes, it is small, but it is perfect for a couple or a solo traveler, like me. After checking in on Friday evening, I never left the property! I spent most of my time on the beach or on the balcony, overlooking the beach.

The kitchen has what you need for a short stay. There is no oven, so that might limit what you might want to prepare, but if you are on vacation...why get that deep into cooking?! The refrigerator is small, but adequate. If you want to have ice cold beverages on hand, bring a cooler. There are plenty of dishes, etc.

The beach never seemed very crowded. It was clean. Perfect for sunbathing, walking or splashing in the water.

The owner was very easy to work with. Anytime I had a question, I emailed him and he got back to me quickly.

Thanks, Paul! Your quiet condo allowed me to be a runaway mom/wife and de-stress.
