NEW LAST YEAR! TOP-FLOOR OCEAN VIEW! WASHER/DRYER! LEATHER!

Galveston Condo Rental Photos and Description

King Suite, Queen, Adult size Bunks, Leather Sleeper Sofa, 2 full Baths Sleeps 8

You will be staying in 'DolphinSmileVIEW', a new luxury condo sitting on the seawall of Galveston Island. Pam & I invite you to share our latest creation, a playful dolphin theme for the family while still saving a little luxury for you. Pamper your senses with soft new leather and sandy-beach colored tile.

Your shower spa experience begins as water cascades over the aqua water-fall bathroom sink. Aqua glass wall decorations, float next to sand colored tiles, bringing back beach memories from the day's activities. Then, explore the many shower options, possibly beginning with the tropical 'rain' shower head. Close your eyes and drift through a misty tropical rain forest, OR adjust the wand height to match your height and cycle through the many options; spray, mist or invigorating massage. Men, if you like to shave in the shower, heat the mirror (no fog) with a little hot water, turn off the large rain head and stay warm with the 4 body sprays. Too much fun!

Beautiful home away from home

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from a great weekend at this beautiful home away from home. It is just like it looks in the pictures. So nice. Not one bad thing to say about it. It's close to everything, but it's out enough to be away from the hustle and bustle of the busy part of town. You will not be disappointed if you choose this unit for your stay. The owners are very nice and easy to work with. We loved it, and we hope to return again.

Highly Recommend !

  • 5 of 5
No regrets with this condo. Great view, quiet, and clean! We came to have a relaxing, restful getaway and this was the perfect place to stay. The only negatives at all were a dishwasher full of dishes that had to be unloaded and put away upon our arrival. I had wondered why there were only a couple of glasses in the beautiful cabinets. Also, the night before leaving we decided to do a load of laundry. We opened the washer and found still damp towels that had never been put into the dryer. So we had to rewash them before we started our laundry. I think both of these issues are an oversight of whoever cleans. (We wondered why the master bath only had two towels in it!)

The owner is the easiest person to work with that I have ever had. I have rented six previous times in the past from others; this is the second time in Galveston. The property managers were all kind and helpful. I would definitely rent again from David.

This is a PERFECT place to stay in Galveston. It is fixed up so BEAUTIFUL. It is away from the busy part but then it is not to far away. That is what we loved about the location.You have Ocean View on the Big Porch which over looks the pool. You could not go wrong by staying here. We will be back same time next year and many more to come. Thank You David for sharing your Condo. Last thing David is VERY Nice to deal with Tks again :)

Great Vacation!

  • 5 of 5
This was a great place to stay. There was plenty of space and it was quiet! Our 3 year old son had plenty of space to play! We have stayed in a hotel with him and those rooms can make you stir crazy. We found everything to be as described and there were clear instructions for everything. It was a great experience! This property was also very conveniently located. I read a review or 2 that complained about the distance of the room from the elevator. I didn't find it to be too far of a walk and I am 6 months pregnant. No further than if you stayed in hotel down the hall from the elevator. I would stay here again without hesitation!

It was ok but slightly overpriced.

  • 4 of 5
Very clean and nicely decorated. Very well stocked with the basic things we needed. It was nice to have a washer and dyer for towels and swim suits. Only major complaints were the severe Mosquito problems around the condo and they beds were really hard and uncomfortable. We stayed next door the next night for 100 less per night and it was a better comfort level. They had foggers installed in the elevators and hallways. My son was literally eaten up with bites. We were on the 3rd floor and were attacked very time we took the elevator. Don't get me wrong place was nice I just think it was a little overpriced.
