We bought this condo because of its prime Gulf view, its proximity to the quiet pool and its beach access, and mostly because we love the Victorian. We're glad to share it with you when we are not visiting from Houston. This condo was well maintained as rental pool property prior to our purchase, and we've added all the nice, little touches of ownership including a full apartment sized refrigerator. Queen sized bed in the one bedroom with a good sized closet, bunkbeds in the hall alcove for 2, and a sleeper sofa in the living area for one or two. For your convenience, our Galveston property manager is available just down the street to take care of any requests or questions you have, so leave all your worries at home. You can cook in the suite or visit one of the great restaurants in Galveston. We love buying shrimp and fish off the docks on Harborside Drive near downtown, and cooking our own feast to enjoy on the deck. All the dishes and utensils are there in the condo to make you feel at home. Within the complex also are two swimming pools, a hot tub, covered parking, tennis courts and barbeque pits. In addition to the new Pleasure Pier amusement park over the water just down the Seawall, there is something going on pretty much every weekend in Galveston. Don't hesitate to book...Galveston is filling up for the summer!
We visited this condo with our 3 year old nephew and used the swimming pool all weekend, We never had any incidents at the pool. We did have them walk and follow the rules. They had a blast and really enjoyed the swimming, as well as walking across the street to the beach at any time and returning easily to the condo. It was a great place to stay to enjoy the water as well as the other Galveston activities.
My friends and I loved the place, location was a plus and the view excellent. You don't need a vehicle as everything is within walking distance such as two major grocery stores (Wal-Mart and Kroger), Pleasure Pier, lots of restaurants and of course the beach. Hot swimming pool was perfect, especially for the day that was cold. Lots of dishes to use, towels, linens. Property manager and staff were very welcoming and super nice. Planning another trip to same condo soon.
The photos of the property were accurate and reflect the appearance and amenities. Overall the unit is very clean & well kept. The owner of the property was very helpful with answering all questions, there was excellent customer service upon checking in, and having security at the gate entrance was a plus. The Victorian is located on the seawall and the apt. has a balcony that overlook the pool with a view of the beach. I really will recommend this property to friends and relatives not to mention it sleep 7 people comfortably. I really enjoyed our stay.
This place is perfect! We've stayed at the Victorian before and the location is great. Walk across the street to the beach and food and shopping are very convenient. This unit is perfect (as long as you don't mind flamingo décor)! Plenty of dishes, towels, linens, and even an ironing board with iron and a dvd player. Both the owner and property manager are very nice and easy to work with. We have another trip booked in this condo already at the end of summer and will be back again and again!
My wife and I enjoyed our stay. We found your place clean, comfortable, and relaxing. We liked the fun decor through-out.
We enjoyed our close proximity to the the Fishing piers and to Moody Gardens. We had a good bowl of gumbo at the Gumbo Bar on Post Office Street.
We would recommend this to our friends!
This unit was very welcoming, relaxing and homey. Greatest is the view overlooking the pool, the Gulf of Mexico with beautiful sunsets and the grounds. We had tons of fun, I highly recommend this unit for anyone, and we will be back for this same unit.
We enjoyed our stay and the condo was as described. The issue that would prevent a return visit was the area around the pool. The concrete was very slippery. Three of my four grandchildren fell and hit their head. I also saw two other children fall. I warned one family with small children. A unit owner that I met at the pool said that it was an ongoing issue and she had complained several times.
Galveston's new Pleasure Pier amusement park over the water opens this summer, adding to the many activites you'll find to fill your days. Moody Gardens discovery theme park for all ages, Schitterbaun Waterpark, shopping and restaurants on the Strand along with the new Pirates Museum. Miles and miles of open beaches and nature bird watching in the protected marshes. Book a deep sea fishing adventure or walk across the street for assisted pier fishing. And order seafood every day in one of Galveston's many fine restaurants throughout the Island.
