About Carol or Clay Witherspoon

We are a retired couple married for 48 years living near Galveston. We are both originally from Houston, TX, but Clay's job has taken us to St. Louis, Alabama, California & Florida. We purchased this lovely Condo this year as a means to supplement our retirement and stay busy when we are not fishing. We have always enjoyed entertaining and our Condo is an extension of that joy. Clay is retired as a Regional Sales Mgr., 50 years in the same industry & occasionally does Consulting. I'm a retired HR/Staffing Manager.

Carol or Clay Witherspoon purchased this condo in 2013

Why Carol or Clay Witherspoon chose Galveston

Our property's amenities are as we would want them to be if we were staying there. Which at times we do, it is our little mini vacation even though we live so close.

We choose Galveston of course because we live so near and knew we would be able to maintain our property our selves and because of all the wonderful activities to do just as a couple or with the family.

What makes this condo unique

We fell in love with this Condo mainly because of the view. We believe that if you travel to a destination you should see that destination from your lodging. (Ocean view, Mountains, etc.) The fact that it had recently been updated with tile floors, new bathroom fixtures and granite counter tops Sealed the Deal.

Loved It!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in Galveston. This unit we stayed in was furnished just like home. We had everything we needed, the necessities of home. The location was wonderful. Close to resturants and shopping. We took a lot of walks on the beach, which were right across the street. The staff for this complex were very friendly. We will probably be back.

Our "new home"...

  • 5 of 5

That's what my youngest called it all week. Everybody loved it! Walking distance to swim beach (across the street, literally) and easily accessible from the Sea Wall. The condo had everything we needed, except hangers. The kitchen is fully stocked with dishes and pots/pans for cooking needs. Beach towels were provided too. And I loved that there was a step stool for the bathroom for my little one to use! So thoughtful!!

The Victorian has both stairs and an elevator so anyone can get around. There's a luggage cart for easier loading/unloading too. Parking is mainly under the condos which was different for us but nice when it rained. The complex gates close for evening security, leaving only 1 way in/out that was manned by a guard. I really liked that!! If you forgot something, Walmart is literally next door, too!!

Be sure to visit the Visitors' Center to find coupons and discounts for various things! We visited The Strand, Sea Wolf Park, the Elissa, took a dolphin tour, and rode the Galveston-Bolivar Ferry to visit Port Bolivar. Not to mention, we played at the beach daily and even swam in the pools too. On our way back north we stopped at NASA and enjoyed several hours of fun too!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking your time to write us such a lovely review. I'm so sorry about the hangers. I do provide hangers in both our condos. I check out our condos when we are finished getting them ready and I totally missed that the hangers were missing. I now have another item to add to my check list. Thank you for bringing it to my attention. Carol Ann

My family and I enjoyed our stay at this condo very much! It was exactly what was shown on the website. This condo was very nice and neat everything that we needed was already furnished (dishes, pots and pans, beach towels etc). The owners made my family and I welcomed even before we got there! If I had any questions or concerns, they were available to take my calls which made me feel at ease. I recommend this condo to anyone who's looking to stay at this property, it made us feel right at home! This condo is on the Sea Wall and close to anything or everything you made need while there. WE WILL DEFINATELY BE BACK!

Awesome place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our family travelled to Galveston for a sporting event. We were greated by friendly staff and had no problems checking in. Our room was exactly as it was described, so no surprises. Everything was perfect for our stay. When we go to Galveston again we will definitely be staying here.
