ON THE BEACH at Islander East
Bernadette C Sloat
About Bernadette C Sloat
My name is Bernadette Sloat. I live in Sugar Land, TX with my husband Jim, who is a veterinarian. We have 4 children and 4 grandchildren. I was a high school math teacher for most of my career. In 2012 I started acquiring long-term rental property. I found that real estate was taking more and more of my time so in 2015 I became a licensed REALTOR and focused on real estate full time. I have always been a "beach girl" and I've always wanted to own property on the beach.
Bernadette C Sloat purchased this Condo in 2017
Why Bernadette C Sloat chose Galveston
I started looking for property in Galveston in early 2017. I wanted a property on the beach with unobstructed beach views. I wanted to be ON THE SAND. I didn't want to have to drag my beach gear, and my grandchildren, across a dangerous busy street to get to the water. I also didn't want to be far away from the Strand. I wanted to be able to jump in the car and get to restaurants and attractions within minutes. That meant that the only place I could find what I was looking for was East Beach. Most of the condos on East Beach are very small. When this 1650 square foot condo came up for sale in October 2017 I just couldn't pass it up. It is so spacious and the views are amazing. I hope you and your family love it as much as we do.
What makes this Condo unique
Views, Views, Views! We have 24 feet of balcony on the beach. There are two windows in the condo that face the channel. From these windows you can see the beach, channel, and bay. I can sit on the sofa for hours watching the ships travel past. We also have 24 feet of balcony that faces the bay and harbor. It is such a kick to watch the cruise ships come out of Galveston Harbor, go down the channel, and out to sea. I love watching them but it always occurs to me that I'd rather be sitting on the veranda here in Galveston than going out to sea with them. I've got everything I need in my East End Bella Vista.

Amazing Condo for Families
We really enjoyed this amazing condo. Communication with the owner was excellent and the check in process was very well run like a hotel. Access to the beach is great and proximity to the strand is excellent. We have stayed in VRBO properties all over and this was one of the cleanest we have ever stayed in. Perfect place for a large family or two couples with children.
Heaven at the Ocean
We had the pleasure of staying here for the Thanksgiving Holiday! It was pretty wonderful. I’m a sucker for beautiful decor and this condo does not disappoint! Every detail was exquisite. The views are some of the best you can experience on the island. Even on a cloudy day, we couldn’t stay away from the balcony. So peaceful and serene. Highly Recommend!
Great stay on the East End
We stayed for 3 nights for a recent event in Galveston. We were a group of 5 adults and 3 kids. Bernadette made the booking process very easy, and was able to facilitate a last-minute schedule change easily. The condo is just as represented in the listing. Very clean, convenient, and well-furnished. Using the 3 bedrooms and sofa bed in the living room, everyone had a comfortable place to stay. The kitchen and appliances are all nice and new. The views from every window are unbeatable, and the beach access was convenient and easy. I would highly recommend this unit to anyone needing to stay several nights on the East End of Galveston, whether for vacation or a visit to UTMB.
I have rented several Galveston condos and this is # 1 . Decorated just beautiful the owner's taste is exquisite , she thought of everything. The amenities are over the top, this condo has it all ,comfort , spacious luxury and spotless clean .Balconies in front have a spectacular view of the beach and ocean .

Thanks so much for the review. I'm so glad you had a wonderful vacation. It is my pleasure to share my condo with people who love it as much as I do.
We absolutely loved the stay at this property. The views are beautiful. We loved being able to sit in the porch with a cup of coffee or glass of wine and see the ocean and listen to the sound of the waves.
Bernadette has thought of everything! The condo is gorgeous, well-organized & perfectly stocked. We were able to cook easily & sleep comfortably. Bernadette was so easy to communicate with. I cannot wait to stay here again!
