WOW what a nice condo!!!! Very nicely decorated! Everything you need is right there from laundry detergent to paper towels. Ronda is really nice and accommodating!! The floors in the kitchen are loose but that didn't make our stay any less enjoyable! The complex is super clean and quiet! The people there are very nice and friendly. If you are planning a trip, make sure you stay here!
PS There's a really great restaurant called Shrimp and Stuff that's great! Don't waste your time at the Sunflower Cafe!
We loved the condo. It's roomy but not huge. We stayed with another family so it was nice to each have our own space to getaway at each end of the condo and we didn't have to share a bathroom as each room had their own. It came stocked with pretty much anything you would need as far as linens, cooking utensils, etc. It is also not in the middle of the hustle and bustle of Galveston but also not a far drive from most of the action or beaches.
My complaints are that the air conditioner cooled off the bedrooms nicely but the living room area stayed considerably hotter than the rest of the condo even with a ceiling fan and an additional fan running. The toilets rocked when you sat on them. The door was hard to lock and unlock. Also there were no plugs for the drains in the bathtub. We have a 1 year old and a 5 year old and the other family had a 1 year old so baths were needed. We had to use the plug from the kitchen and rig it to work but unless you wanted to wait for the other family to be done with baths this approach wasn't that great so someone had to stick a rag in the drain to stop it while taking their bath.
Overall great experience. House very clean, beds very comfortable, and appeal was nice. The only complaints I have was the locks on the door were very hard to lock and unlock and the cable box kept going out and we had to unplug it several times to get it to start working again.
We thoroughly enjoyed staying at this condo and will definitely come back! It is not a huge unit but the two bedrooms are on opposite ends so it gave a bit of privacy. The two bedrooms are large and have their own bathrooms which is really convenient. We stayed with another couple and their daughter and both of our families were comfortable. The unit was fully stocked with all that you would need for your visit except for aluminum foil, saran wrap, sandwich bags so don't forget to bring those with you. I just wasn't sure what I was supposed to bring! Ronda was very accommodating and let us stay as late as we wanted the last day since no one was coming after us. It was really nice to have that extra time. We drove to a nearby beach, perhaps 5 minutes away and had a great time. The location is excellent and overall I would definitely recommend this rental!
First, of all, the owner (Ronda) was lovely and sooo easy to work with. She was accommodating and let us check in early and out late as the condo was not rented on either side of our visit. She was easy to reach both via email and phone, and was cheerful and helpful every time we talked.
The condo was a great space for my young family and my brother's young family. The closets were big enough to put the pack & play in, so the baby had a little extra quiet during naptime.
Two bathrooms made cleaning up from the beach easy, as did having a washer and dryer in the condo. Bring your own shampoo/conditioner though, as there is none provided (would have been nice to have known that before). Also, be advised that the dryer takes a looooooooong time to actually get things dry (had to do multiple cycles before our towels were ready).
Many of the tiles in the kitchen are loose, as mentioned by a previous reviewer. It didn't interrupt our visit, but probably should be fixed at some point.
Otherwise, the condo was comfy, quiet, and pet-friendly. We really enjoyed our short stay! Thanks, Ronda!
My friend and I were in Galveston to race the Half Ironman event. It was helpful to stay in a two bedrooms, two baths condo. There were plenty of room for our race bikes and gear.
We notified Ronda that there were some cracked kitchen tiles and she emailed promptly that the tiles will be addressed and there was no need for us to be concerned. All equipment and appliances were functional. The condo is located in a quiet, family oriented environment.
The condo was perfect for our race weekend.
