Built in 2008, this is an ultra-modern Condo. THE nicest property Galveston has to offer. Nothing else like it. East Beach is huge and more private than the surrounding beaches. It is one of the very few properties DIRECTLY on the beach, no crossing highways or seawall. Staff is friendly and helpful. You can't beat a 15th floor view of downtown Galveston at night. The master bedroom has an ocean view.
