Galveston Condo Rental Photos and Description
Studio, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 2

Absolute stunning one of a kind condo unit right on the beach facing the gulf. This unit has marble walls, floor and newly remodeled marble bath complete with walk in shower with sitting bench and floor to ceiling glass doors. A wall of mirrors lets you view the gulf from your bed or watch TV on a 32'' flat screen TV with built in DVD player. At night, relax in king size bed with luxurious bedding while you either look at the gulf or enjoy the quiet reflection of a glowing electic fireplace.

There are complete kitchen facilities or enjoy grilling on the patio downstairs with 2 gas grills for your convenience. A quick walk across the dune crossover and you are on the beach. Nothing to block your view and no vehicles allowed on the beach to disturb you. A perfect vacation spot you won't want to leave and can't wait to come back to.

Why the Owner Chose Islander East: After growing up in Galveston County and then living and working in Houston, I found I kept being drawn back to the Island. Being a busy Banker, I wanted a quiet place to retreat to on weekends that wasn't more than an hours drive. Finding the Islander East Condos was the 'special place' I'd been looking for. It's been 10 years and I have enjoyed every minute of it and hope for many more.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo: I never get tired of walking on the beach or sitting on my balcony looking at the water and relaxing while visiting with neighbors. The view of the water at night with the moonlight reflecting on it and seeing the lights of ships lined up in the distance to enter the Ship Channel is truly the best of the best

My husband and I had a lovely time! Thanks so much for sharing your beautiful condo with us! We came in late Thursday on a blustery evening and had no truble getting in the gate and a warm welcome from the from desk staff person who promptly got us a luggage cart and a car tag and shorter gate access code. The condo was just like the pictures! Gorgeous view and romantic decor. Since its a little more on the masculine side, it was pleasing to my husband much more so than a rose-covered B & B! There are these ingenious mirrored cabinets on either side of the bed that have a place to hang your hanging clothes and cubbies on the back side for shoes, etc and a full length mirror on the front! Perfect find for this space! I DO NOT travel light, so trust me there is enough space for all your things! Also, I'm a girly girl and was worried about where I was going to do my hair and makeup but there are plugs at either end of the full wall of mirrors where I plugged in my blow dryer and curling iron and sat in one of the chairs turned towards the mirror and put my make up on! It worked out perfect while my husband was showering and dressing in the bath! I was worried about the no bath only shower since I am a bubble bath girl but the shower had a bench and the water pressure was great with the rain shower head so there was no problem. We slept in ( the bed is amazingly comfy! ) and took a brisk morning walk on the beach, which was totally secluded, hardly saw a soul! We had breakfast at our old fav the Apache downtown ( we used to live in Galveston and love the folks and the authentic Mexican food as we are W Texas transplants ) We had dinner at Rudy and Paco's and laughed out loud at the " Hall and Oates " duo at Club 21 ( boy has it changed! ) but we enjoyed it immensely! We met friends for a snacka nd dessert at The Spot and had another wonderful dinner at Di Bellas and drinks at The Hotel Galvez where we were married in 2005. We normally stay at The Galvez or The Tremont but trust me you can stay for 3 nights at this lovely condo for the price of one night at these hotels and we loved the privacy and view much more than a hotel room and the differnce in price we indulged with some extravagant dinners! Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful place and we will definitely be back soon! The Robinson's

Thank you for providing a great place to enjoy the beach. We loved the interior decor and the shower was great. Loved the shower head flow. Also liked the window shades in the unit.

We also enjoyed the use of the small cooler to take beverages to the beach.
Thanks for recommending Dibellas restaurant. We loved it.

Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful condo. We had a fun month and enjoyed the facilities so much. The bed was so comfortable.

I think we have toured about every street in Galveston and loved the old Victorian homes. Spent some time on the road at the east end of the Seawall watching the ships come into the bay. Fed the five kittens living in a cave in the rocks..They are being fed daily by 3 Galvestonians.

Everything in the condo was clean and worked great. This was a very special month for us living by the sea.

This was the perfect retreat for our anniversary weekend. I honestly was not expecting a condo to be this luxurious in such an "established" building. What a fun decor! The view from the balcony was great. There was eve a wedding on the beach which made the weekend even more special. We loved everything, comfy bed, fully equipped kitchen, the electric fireplace, an amazing shower....We will definitely be back, maybe again this year or our anniversary next year.

This was our second visit. We stayed a few days in August and loved it so much we came back for my birthday. The view from the deck is outstanding...sunrise over the ocean in the morning and moonrise at night. The walkway to the beach is over the dunes which are interesting in themselves (butterflies, little birds, fireflies in the summer). The room is clean and the bed is super comfortable. The marble surfaces and mirror wall create a sophisticated decor with a cozy electric fireplace for ambience. We highly recommend this place for a relaxing get-away.
