I can't say enough about how much I enjoyed Annemarie's condo!! The ease of working with her before I got there was great, and the condo itself was perfect for us!! I was traveling with my two 20 year old daughters, and we all loved it. It was very spacious, and the two balconies with spectacular ocean views were wonderful and we spend lots of time on them! It felt like we were staying in a home with everything we could possibly need right at our fingertips. The kitchen was great, she had everything you needed to cook with, and lots of nice dishes and pans, etc. It was very, very clean with a comfortable bed and thick fluffy towels in the bathroom. It was also super quiet, and we never heard anyone talking or walking around. Her pictures are very accurate, and if you like the pictures, you will love the condo! The Galvestonian itself is a great condo overall. With the beautiful pool and deck, the palm trees, and the great beach, I felt like we were in the Caribbean. The gulf water is still Galveston though, so don't expect Florida clear water, and you will have a great time :) I love the beach, and thoroughly enjoyed this one. The water is so warm, and it is fun to swim. The pool was one of the nicest I have ever had at a resort, large, clean, warm enough to swim at night, and had a nice spa tub right on the edge of it. Plenty of deck chairs on a spacious deck. We were here in the middle of the summer and it didn't feel crowded at all. It was a nice mix of couples, families with older kids, and some families with young kids. The staff was very strict on the pool rules, so the young children never bothered us. They don't allow anyone under 18 in the hot tub which was great for us, but something to think about if you have young kids. They also have tables and grills so you can cook outside :) Overall, I would totally recommend this condo for both Annemaries's room and the Galvestonian itself!! And it made me so happy renting from the owner, knowing we were paying much less than the people renting from the rental pool rooms :) I can't wait to go back to our new favorite place in Galveston!! East beach is the best location, close to the Strand, but away from the crowds at the Seawall with a feeling of a Caribbean resort! Don't miss Lan King's Confectionary in the strand, great homeade ice cream, candy, and loads of fun watching them make saltwater taffy! The only thing wrong with our stay is that we had to leave!! I wanted to stay forever!
