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

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.

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.
